Saudi Sale to Fly
Saudi Arabia will receive $825
million in arms as requested by
the Reagan administration,
since Congress did not vote to
block it by deadline.
Rep. Larry Smith (D-Fla.),
who had drafted a resolution
to block the sale, decided
against introducing it after not
finding enough support in the
Senate, his press secretary,
Karen Donovan, said.
Another Capitol Hill aide
said that many members of
Congress supported the sale to
help bolster the armed forces
of a friendly ally in the Persian
The sale includes support
equipment for AWACS
surveillance planes already
possessed by the Saudis, as
well as 200 Bradley Fighting
Vehicles and TOW-II anti-tank
Members of Congress had
written Secretary of State
George Shultz urging him to
reconsider the sale. The House
letter was signed by 187
members, while the Senate
version had 58 signatures.
But Capitol Hill sources said
the motive of many lawmakers
in opposing the sale was to
bring attention to Saudi
Arabia's initial attempt to
conceal its purchase of
medium-range missiles from
Those missiles, which have a
range of 1,600 miles, have the
capability to reach Israel.
Saudi Arabia has assured the
Reagan administration that
the missiles will not be fitted
with nuclear warheads.

Politically Inspired
Incidents on Increase
A sharp increase in the
national number of anti-
Semitic incidents that have a
"politically related anti-Israel
component" is viewed as a
new and disturbing element,
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith has reported.
Twenty percent or 88 of 443
episodes of vandalism, threats
and harassment reported so
far this year are showing a
new anti-Semitic pattern that
is being directed against syna-
gogues, Jewish institutions,
other property and individual
Jews. There has been an
increase in graffiti with
slogans such as "Death to
Jews and Israel" and "Long
Live the PLO."
ADL national director
Abraham H. Foxman said the
incidents, although common in
European countries, represent
the "first time since the
founding of the State of Israel
40 years ago that there has
been a significant outbreak of
Middle East related anti-
Semitic incidents in this
During all of 1987, Foxman
said, there were only three
incidents of an anti-Israel
nature out of a total of 1,018
reported in the ADL's annual
audit. In 1986, only eight of
the 906 anti-Jewish episodes
were politically oriented.
California had the highest
number of anti-Israel incidents
with 25 cases reported,
followed by Illinois, -nine and
Florida -eight.
In an ADL special report
released this month, the inci-
dents were broken down by
state and included assaults by
graffiti, pipe bombs, mail and
phone threats, hate mail to
media and individual homes
and spray-paint vandalism.
In Florida, the report lists
the following incidents:
March 25, 1988: Palm
Beach, two synagogues spray
painted with "Stop Genocide
in Gaza," and "Jude: Stop
Funding Death in the Gaza
April 16-18: Boca Raton,
two synagogues spray-painted
with "Abu Jihad" and
"Victory Uprising."
March-May, 1988: Palm
Beach, series of harassing calls
to ADL office and Jewish
newspapers as well as distribu-
tion of pro-Palestinian litera-
ture on several occasions.
April 25, 1988: Miami,
synagogue graffiti "You
took the PLO's land," "Today
You Kill 14 Year Old Kids."
The anti-Israel episodes
were reported in 17 states and
the District of Columbia and
Puerto Rico.
The ADL report also notes
that, by comparison, few anti-
Semitic incidents were
recorded by ADL in connec-
tion with other recent foreign
and domestic controversies
affecting Jews in the U.S. Six
or fewer anti-Jewish incidents
were reported during other
heavily publicized events such
as Israel's 1982 invasion into
Lebanon, 1984 Jackson/
Farrakhan controversy, Presi-
dent Reagan's 1985 visit to the
Bitburg cemetery in West
Germany and the 1986 revela-
tions concerning Austrian
President Kurt Waldheim.
The pro-Palestinian, anti-
Israeli graffiti "is not linked to
any specific group at this
moment," according to ADL
southern area director Arthur
Teitelbaum. "We never talk
about investigations," he

Call for Surrogate Ban
Rabbis participating in a New
York state bioethics task force
said that they support the
panel's endorsement of a ban
on surrogate motherhood
In recommending legislation
that would prohibit payments
to surrogates and bar surro-
gacy brokers from operating in
the state, the New York State
Task Force on Life and the
Law has taken "a proper
stand," Rabbi A. James Rudin,
interreligious affairs director
of the American Jewish
Committee, said in a state-
A second rabbi on the 26-
member panel. Rabbi J. David
Bleich of Yeshiva University,
said that he essentially agreed
with the recommendations.
The panel did not call for a
total ban on surrogacy
arrangements, and "would
still permit surrogacy arrange-
ments when they are undis-
puted and when they do not
involve payment of a fee to a
surrogate, explained Rudin.
But the panel said the prac-
tice of paying women to serve
as surrogate mothers "has the
potential to undermine the
dignity of women, children and
human reproduction."
In case of disputes, the task
force recommended that
custody always be awarded to
the mother, unless there is
"clear and convincing
evidence" that awarding
custody to the father would be
in the child's best interest.
Pressure Urged
United States was urged to
use the "good atmosphere" in
U.S.-Soviet relations following
the Moscow summit to prod
the Soviets into pressuring
Ethiopia to allow the
remaining 8,000 to 20,000
Jews there to emigrate to
An estimated 16,000 Ethio-
pian Jews now live in Israel,
said William Recant, director
of the American Association
for Ethiopian Jews. But 1,500
of the children have parents
who are still in Ethiopia.
There are 60 to 70 Ethiopian
Jews still in the Sudan, Recant
said. About 7,000 Jews were
rescued from refugee camps
there during the U.S.-Israeli
secret airlifts in 1984 and

No Early Elections Expected
Likud appears to have given
up its efforts to advance the
Knesset elections from
November to August.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
said on Voice of Israel Radio
that he does not intend to
initiate a move in Parliament
for early elections. Apparently
the party lacks support for the
move within its own ranks.
Cabinet members Ariel
Sharon, David Levy and
Yitzhak Modai were said to be

for an early date in the
Knesset. Labor would not

from an international confer-
ence in Paris because of polit-
ical pressures has led to a
storm of condemnation from
many members of the organi-
zation sponsoring the confer-
ence as well as to the resigna-
tion in protest of the group's
permanent secretary.
Cecile Panzer, director of
the library at the Harry S.
Truman Research Institute for
the Advancement of Peace at
the Hebrew University, had
been invited to deliver a paper
last month at the 10th Interna-
tional Conference of Middle
East Librarians, sponsored by
MELCOM International (the
Middle East Libraries
Committee), of which she is a
member. Her name and the
topic of her paper were printed
on the program distributed
prior to the conference, which
was held at the Institut du
Monde Arabe (the Arab World
Institute) in Paris.
When the partially French
g government-funded institute
S objected at the last minute to
^Panzer's participation, the
head of the sponsoring organi-
agree to elections in August,
when many of its voters will be
vacationing abroad. The reli-
gious parties and the far-right
wing Tehiya Party, which
usually support Likud initia-
tives equivocated on this issue.
Labor, by contrast, showed
its strength in the 59-45 yote
in the Knesset to hold munic-
ipal elections separately from
the national elections. Until
now they had been held
concurrently, which Likud
believed was to its advantage.
The next Knesset elections
are to be held Nov. 1, when the
term of the present Knesset
expires. But that is not a fore-
gone conclusion. Foreign

zations. Dr. Derek Hop wood of
the Middle East Center at St.
Antony's College, Oxford,
England, informed Panzer
that she would no longer be
able to attend the conference.
Hopwood at the time told
Dr. Edy Kaufman, executive
director of the Truman Insti-
tute, that he had chosen the
"lesser of the two evils" in
disinviting Panzer, since the
other choice would have been
to cancel the conference. In
answer to Kaufman's objec-
tion, Hopwood also said that
"there is no such thing as
academic freedom."
So angered over the affair
was the permanent secretary
of the organization, Wolfgang
Behn, of West Germany, that
he resigned his post ir. protest.
In letters of apology sent to
the Israeli ambassador in Paris
and to Panzer, Behn wrote
that "the great majority of the
members of the Middle East
Libraries Committee and the
delegates to the conference
condemn the discriminatory
and racist behavior of the
Institut du Monde Arabe." He
added that not only had he
refused to cancel Panzer's
invitation to the conference,
but had also asked Hopwood to
refrain from doing so.
Minister Shimon Peres, leader
of the Labor Party, said that
he would consider advancing
the election date to late
September or early October,
right after Yo m
"These elections are very
decisive and we need time to
explain our views. I will only
support early elections if we
have sufficient time to hold a

campaign," Peres said.
Most Israeli politicians
expect the next Knesset elec-
tions to be a referendum on
the divergent Labor and Likud
policies with respect to the
peace process and the future of
the administered territories.
Israel Bond
Efforts in June
Hundreds of Rabbis and major
synagogues throughout the
United States and Canada joined
in "Operation IVRI/Unity," a
special Israel Bond campaign to
mobilize an outstanding Indi-
vidual Variable Rate Issue (IVRI)
response and to speed cash
payments for all current bond
subscriptions to Israel.
The announcement was made by
Sy Syms of New York, National
Chairman of the Israel Bond
As part of the June effort,
Rabbis or congregational leaders
in cooperating synagogues will
host meetings for $1,000-and-over
Bond buyers to explain the attrac-
tive features of the popular IVRI
Bond and to encourage purchases
and payments.
At the same time, Mr. Syms
explained, all local Bond
campaigns throughout the United
States and Canada will be
devoting themselves in June to
turning all unpaid Bond commit-
ments into cash "so that Israel
can receive vital proceeds for the
nation's continued economic

Labor Party will present to
Israeli voters in November will
have many new names, fresh
younger faces and a decided
tilt toward the dovish left
although such an appraisal is
strongly denied by party
secretary-general Uri Baram.
Labor completed the process
of selecting the 61 men and
women who will seek to repre-
sent it in Parliament. But
Labor doesn't expect to win 61
seats. No political party in
Israel has ever gained an abso-
lute majority in the 120-
member Knesset.
If Labor does as well as it did
in 1984, it can expect to elect
44 of its people. Now the
inevitable jostling and
jockeying for "safe" positions
on the list has begun and is
expected to be hard-fought.
The crucial ranking of the
candidates on the list is set for
June 16. The first seven slots
are reserved for the party
leaders and for Minister-

gathering steam for new
explosions as it nears the end
of its sixth month?
Israel's political leaders and
military thinkers have varying
views on the subject. Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin
believes the Palestinians
realize the "infitada" has
failed to bring anything but
misery and that the time is
ripe for negotiation.
But a group of Israel
Defense Force reserve
generals, who have formed an
organization called the Council
for Peace and Security, thinks
there is still a tinderbox situa-
tion which calls for a drastic
re-thinking of Israeli policy.

a government official, who was
not identified, as saying "the
chief cause of the continuation
of the uprising in the terri-
tories" was the acts of
brutality by IDF soldiers and
the degradation of Palestin-
Knesset member Yossi Sarid
of the dovish Citizens Rights
Movement said in the Knesset
that 5,130 Palestinians have
been wounded during the
uprising, apart from the 190
killed. Sarid said he was
quoting "an official docu-
ment." According to those
figures, one of every 300 Arab
residents of the territories was
wounded and one in 80 was
Rabin told Sarid he would
have to study the figures
before he reacted. But the
defense minister said, after a
meeting of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee, that the time has
come to enter into talks with
"all sectors in the adminis-
tered territories and exchange
views with them."
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres said that the uprising's
only achievement was in the
news media. Its organizers
succeeded in putting the Pales-
tinian issue on the agenda
because the media presented
events in the territories out of
proportion to their impor-
tance, Peres contended.
The Palestinian residents
failed in their most important
aim to create a new political
situation, Peres said.
But reservist Maj. Gen.

military intelligence, said the

that coexistence, such as it
was between Israelis and
Palestinians, has come to an
end. It has to be replaced by a

The museum began in 1904
and its collection was housed
for 40 years in the library of
the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, under
whose auspices the museum
operates. It opened to the
public in its present location,
in the mansion donated to the
Seminary by Mrs. Frieda
Schiff Warburg, in 1947.
The estimated total cost of
the expansion, involving both
the extension and interior
reconstruction, is approx-
imately $15 million. It is an-
ticipated that actual construc-
tion will begin in early 1991
and take approximately 18
months to complete.
NEW YORK In a major
address here, former UN
Ambassador Jeane Kirkpa-
trick has warned against "the
virus of romantic leftism,"
which she said assumes that
government authority is
always wrong and self-styled
"liberation" movements are
always right.
"This idea is dangerous to
America's and Israel's
health," Kirkpatrick said in
delivering the second annual
Yehuda Hellman Memorial
Lecture, named for the
founding executive vice-
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
In her remarks, the former
permanent representative of
the United States to the
United Nations spoke of the
response of Western nations
to the Palestinian Arab riots in
Gaza and the West Bank. She
"The problem is less the
uprising than the moral ambi-
guities which surround Israel's
right to defend itself against
the Arabs' tactics. The ques-
tion has arisen in the West:
does Israel have the right to
defend itself? And if so, what
means is it permitted to use?
"This depressing ambiguity
about what should be a very
clear issue," Kirkpatrick said,
"reflects a general uncertainty
in the West and in the United
States over whether it is ever
legitimate to use the armed
instrumentalities of the state
to put down an uprising of
unarmed or half-armed revolu-
"Such questions are asked
even in the case of assaults
against free speech and

atmosphere in which govern-
ments are always wrong and

erous to

Kirkpatrick told some 200
Presidents Conference
"There are of course times
when civil disobedience is justi-
fied that is, when the right
of the people to equal treat-
ment is denied. That is why the
American civil rights move-
ment won such wide support.
There was a clear recognition
that American blacks were
being treated in a manner that
the Constitution itself forbade.
"From that has developed
the idea of the moral superi-
ority of insurgent groups chal-
lenging government authority.
There ia a tendency to give the
benefit of the doubt to all of
those challenging public order.
"This virus of romantic
leftism has invaded the liberal
body politic. The result is an
increasing inclination to
support those who are chal-
lenging state authority no
matter how right the state
may be, no matter how
wrongly-based the challenge."

Historical Concert At Masada
Musical Masterpiece at
Masada, a concert to culminate
Israel's 40th anniversary cele-

torches, followed by a fire-
works display.
Dramatic readings of signifi-

Waldheim "Verdict"
Jewish groups and legal
experts reacted negatively to
the airing of a Home Box
Office television special on
Kurt Waldheim's wartime
deeds, and to the "not-guilty''
verdict delivered at the end of
the show by an international
panel of five judges.
The unanimous verdict was
delivered by satellite from
London, where the "trial" -
"Waldheim: A Commission of
Inquiry" was held.
"We conclude unani-
mously," the judges said,
"that the evidence which has
been put before us is not
enough to make it probable
that Lieutenant Waldheim
committed any of the war
crimes alleged against him in
this inquiry."
In effect, the judges ruled
that there was insufficient
evidence to warrant Wald-

Neo-Nazi Movement
Grows in W. Germany
BONN (JTA) Munich police arrested a young
neo-Nazi activist for circulating anti-Semitic and Nazi-
propaganda and trying to mobilize supporters for an illegal
demonstration. Michael Kuehnen's latest arrest comes at a
time when the neo-Nazi movement in West Germany is
growing rapidly. The Interior Ministry released its annual
report on political extremism, which said that the number
of hard-core neo-Nazis in West Germany rose last year to
25,300 persons, up 3,000 or 14 percent from the previous
year's figure.

Program Uniting Youth,
Retirees Concludes 2nd Year
"Generation to Generation",
a program established to
bridge the communications
and activity between young
people and retirees, concluded
its second year at Northpark
with an awards recognition
program on May 24.
The program was high-
lighted by an announcement
that a deserving senior in the
Class of 1989 will be awarded a
scholarship for a future college
education, based on participa-
tion and service in the
program as well as the
student's academic standing
and need. The scholarship will
be given by Levitt Retirement

owned subsidiary of Levitt

to all students who partici-
pated in the "Generation to
Generation" program during
1987-88, when activities were
expanded to include regular
monthly meetings September
through May between high
school students and Northpark
Recently, the combined
group held a "Memory
Exchange" with the theme of
"Contrasting Decades." Resi-
dents recalled experiences of
the 1920's, 1930's, and 1940's
to bring history to life for the
teenage students.
In March, students and resi-
dents divided themselves into
teams for a Game Day activity,
"Pictionary," providing resi-
dent artists with a chance to
display their talent and both
young and older participants
to challenge skills in guessing
the subject first.
Other activities during the
year included preparation of a
memory scrapbook of "Gener-
ation" activity, a Hallowe'en
Eumpkin carving session, a
oliday season choral presen-
tation, and demonstrations of
speaking and debating tech-
niques by student orators.
As an offshoot of the
"Generation" program, Nort-
hpark residents recently
became involved with
Hollywood Hills High School
by contributing their services
to a remedial reading program
to assist students.
The daughter of Harvey
Rafofsky, president of Levitt
Retirement Communities and
a senior vice president of
Levitt Corporation, was
instrumental in inaugurating
the program during 1986-87.
Now concluding her freshman
year in college, Shari Rafofsky

Meanwhile, the economic
institute Treuarbeit has
refused to comment on its
investigation into the embez-
zlement of reparations funds
intended for Nazi victims by
the late Werner Nachmann,
who headed the West German
Jewish community until his
death in January.
The institute would not
confirm reports that more
money was misappropriated
by Nachmann than the 33
million marks (now about $20
million) he was originally
accused of transferring from
the reparatfons account to his
own use. According to the
Treuarbeit, its probe so far has
been inconclusive.
The cha

by Heinz Galinski, who
succeeded him as president of
the Central Council of Jews.
The former secretary of the
Central Council, Alexander

ferred 30,000 marks ($17,000)
from the reparations fund to
the account of Ginsburg's wife.

Soviet Emigration 'Substantial'
NEW YORK (JTA) A total of 1,146 Jews left the Soviet
Union in May, the National Conference on Soviet Jewry
Of that total, only 87 proceeded to Israel.
May's figures are the highest monthly total since April 1981,
when 1,155 Jews left. At that time, 153 went to Israel.
The number of Jews who left the Soviet Union so far this year
totals 4,672, of which 613 went to Israel.
Not only are Jews leaving in substantial numbers. The Soviets
are permitting even larger numbers of Armenians to leave. Total
Armenian emigration figures for the year are 5,305, of whom
1,501 left in May, according to the Geneva-based Intergovern-
mental Committee for Migration.

military historian Hans-
Rudolph Kurz.
The report was submitted to
the Austrian government.
Only extracts were released to
the public.
Messerschmitt, in an inter-
view in the Swiss newspaper,
deplored the fact that the
Vienna government has failed
so far to publish the full report.
"We were promised by the
government that all our proto-
cols will be made public. We
worked hard for our findings,

Messerschmitt said the
commission intends to publish
the full report on its own if the
Austrian government fails to
do so.

erate Waldheim's conduct. But
it found no evidence that he
was directly involved in depor-
tations, executions and atro-
cities committed by the Wehr-
macht unit he served in as an
intelligence officer.
The report found, however,
that Waldheim must have had
knowledge of these occur-
rences. It criticized him for
taking no steps to stop them or
even protest.

Jewish Students On Campus
| Fighting Palestinian Propaganda
Friday, June 17, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
College Hillel counselors have
expressed varying degrees of
concern over diminished
support of Israel by students
as a result of pro-Palestinian
activity on their campuses
during the spring semester.
Most said the anti-Israel
activity stemming from the
Palestinian uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip
that began in December was
confined to small demonstra-
tions, op-ed pieces in college
newspapers and pro-
Palestinian information tables.
But some Hillel directors
worried that Jewish students
seemed slow to defend Israel,
and expressed fear that these
future leaders of tomorrow
may be turning away from the
pro-Israel position.
There were a couple of
strongly anti-Israel incidents
that occurred on the campuses
this spring, with two of the
more violent ones taking place
at the University of Arizona at
Tucson and at the University
I of Kansas at Lawrence.
At Arizona, a shot was fired
I into the window of the Hillel
lounge just after the last
student had left early on the
morning of April 26, following
the conclusion of one of the
ABC-TV "Nightline" mara-
|thon broadcasts from Israel.
Brenda Morrision, director
I of student activities for Hillel
Iat the university, said some-
body "shot out our-window
land shot out our door." She
said police are still investi-
gating the incident, including a
garbled message left on the
Hillel telephone answering
She added that her campus
has a large Arab population,
with five Palestinian student
At the University of Kansas
at Lawrence, David Katzman,
a history professor, said he
found "Go to Hell Dirty Jew"
written on the name-card of
his office door a few weeks
ago, even though he didn't
teach during the spring. He
said that four days of mail
were stolen the following
week, while no one else in the
history department had
anything touched.
Not The First Time
However, Katzman said that
he was the victim of anti-
Semitism before the Pales-
tinian uprising, when he had
received death threats while
serving as the president of the
local Jewish Community
In combatting the usual
Palestinian forms of protest,
some of the Hillel counselors
complained that they had
limited resources.
Rabbi Carol Glass, Hillel
director at American Univer-
sity in Washington, said
Jewish groups there have not
been effective in countering
pro-Palestinian "slick posters"
placed on walls of campus
buildings and advertisements
bought in the campus news-
She said that her campus has
an unusually large number of
Arab students 400 out of
11,000 students, 40 to 50 of
whom are Palestinians who
had been able to gain funding
from Arab sources.
Heidi Goldsmith, Israel
programs director at the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation, said
many Hillel directors
complained that they lack
"concise materials" and
"simple, clear history" on the
Arab-Israeli conflict.
"We don't have enough," she
An example she gave of
needed material is a pro-Israel
rebuttal of the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization's covenant,
which calls for the overthrow
of Israel.
Two other Hillel directors,
on the other hand, said they do
have effective materials to
counter pro-Palestinian
groups in the information war.
Helise Lieberman, program
director at Columbia Univer-
sity's Hillel, said while
students are struggling with
"how to be supportive of
Israel" without "condoning or
condemning" current policies
toward Palestinians, they have
been exposed to many pro-
Israel speakers and effective
information from the Israeli
Consulate in New York and
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith.
Joseph Kohane, acting Hillel
director at the University of
Michigan at Ann* Arbor, said
his campus has been relatively
quiet. He said that the student
newspaper at one point carried
a lot of anti-Israel opinion
pieces, but that Jewish
students organized a "concen-
trated letter writing
campaign" to counter it.
'Hard Time To Be Jewish'
Glass said that it is a "hard
time to be Jewish on a campus.
The Arab community is seen
by most of the world as the
underdog, as the victimized,"
and "a lot of finger pointing
goes in the way of Israel."
Overall, Glass said organized
Jewry does not see Jewish
students at college as a major
constituency. She argued they
were more vulnerable than
other Jews who do not have to
encounter Arabs on a day-to-
day basis, as do Jewish
She complained that Jewish
groups provide "nothing in the
way of resources and material
to really help us" analyze
recent events. Glass called for
more professional literature to
be developed on the uprising,
and specifically said "not
enough is presented from a
moderate to a sort of Peace
Now perspective."
College campuses must be
seen "as a critical Jewish
community," Glass said,
"because this is where future
public opinion is being
Goldsmith said Palestinian
demonstrations and informa-
tion tables have become bolder
since the violence began Dec.
9, benefiting from the percep-
tion that "Israel no longer has
the David image."
In; Edition, she said, student
newspapers regularly print op-
ed pieces on the Arab-Israeli
conflict, including some by
professors critical of Israel's
handling of the situation. She
added that she has heard of
few violent incidents on
college campuses.
'Battle Of Words And Ideas'
Jeffrey Ross, director of the
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith's campus
affairs and higher education
department, said the incidents
were "less than we expected,"
calling it a "battle of words
and ideas."
He said that demonstrations
of 20 people, which often
occur, do not "affect too many
people," and that many
campus Arab groups are in
disarray both organizationally
and ideologically.
Ross said his "greatest
concern is what's going on in
the classrooms" and not
demonstrations, campus liter-
ature and op-ed pieces and
advertisements in student
He expressed concern that
these students who are
tomorrow's leaders may be
developing a "permissive
consensus which will allow
future administrations to try
to put pressure on Israel to
make unilateral concessions."

with him in his office here.
Amnon Rubinstein and
Yitzhak Artzi, members of the

Schlatter who only sporadi-

the old man's life-long pal,

charm of George Burns, who
makes us laugh and cry when-
ever he appears in the flesh,
which is not clearly often
enough for his admirers from
eight to 90.
The veteran comedian relays
his own recollections of being
18. "I couldn't get a job," he
recalls. "I was a small-time
vaudevillian, worked with a
seal and a dog and did a
skating act. I had to change
my name every week, because
I couldn't get a job twice with ]
the same name." Yet, when
Burns celebrated his 80th year'
in show business in 1983, he
achieved a record of acclaim
unmatched by any living

George was born Nathan Birn-
baum on New York's Lower
East Side. He quit school in [

debut in 1929 opposite his wife
and partner, Gracie Allen.
They substituted for ailing
Fred Allen in a one-reel situa-
tion comedy. Subsequently,
Burns and Allen starred in
fourteen shorts and were
featured in a dozen full-length
films, with the last of them,
"Honolulu," made in 1939.
They went on network radio
in 1932 and stayed on the air
till 1950. Five years later, they
turned to television. When
Gracie retired, George
continued alone, and he also
produced several TV shows.
He became a recording artist
and nightclub entertainer in
Las Vegas and Reno.
It was in 1970 that George
Burns' career received a boost
after the death of Jack Benny,
who was set to star on the
screen in Neil Simon's "The
Sunshine Boys." Burns took
over as a tribute to his old
friend, and at the age of 74
became an instant movie star.
Today, he has more than half
a dozen leading roles to his
credit. At his 85th birthday, he
was given a party in

Shamir, who was formally
elected by the Herut Party

interpreted Gorbachev's
remarks as a measure of
encouragement to Shultz to
continue pressing his peace

of the two Israeli leaders
reflected their opposing hopes
and expectations from the

dent Reagan.
Labor hoped for a narrowing
of the differences between the

which adamantly opposes the
conference scenario, hoped for
an opposite outcome.

But though he has exhausted
all avenues of appeal in the
American justice system,
Maikovskis still resides at his
home in Mineola, N.Y.
Holtzman and representa-
tives of the Jewish groups held
a news conference on the case
on the steps of the federal
courthouse in lower
Manhattan. They distributed a
letter they had sent to Meese
registering "dismay over the
Justice Department's failure
for the past two years to desig-
nate a country of deportation"
for Maikovskis.
Holtzman called Meese's
failure to act "the equivalent

Supreme Court refused, in
June 1986, to review
Maikovskis' appeal of a
September 1985 deportation
ruling. Switzerland, the
country of Maikovskis'
choosing, rejected his request
for asylum in 1984.
Maikovskis entered the
United States in 1951 under
the Displaced Persons Act of
1948, stating on his application
form that between 1941 to
1944 he was a bookkeeper for
the Latvian Railway Depart-
ment. He did not mention his
stint as chief of police in the
Latvian town of Rezekne.
The U.S. Court of Appeals
found that in December 1941,
Maikovskis "ordered his
Latvian police to join with
German soldiers in arresting
all of the Audrini (Latvia)
villagers, totaling 200 to 300
men, women and children."
Ten days later, says the
letter, under Maikovskis'
orders, "his policemen
assisted the Germans in
burning the village to the
ground" and subsequently
shooting dead all the Audrini
Elliot Welles, director of the
B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation
League's Task Force on Nazi
War Criminals, said at the
news conference that
Maikovskis was sentenced to
death in absentia in Riga,
Latvia, in 1965.
The Soviet Union, of which
Latvia is now part, has
requested Maikovskis' extradi-
tion, but no extradition treaty
exists between the United
States and the Soviet Union.
"It's very sad that the U.S.
judicial system is protecting
such a man," Welles said.

European Congress
Friday, June 17, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 11
European Jewish Congress
wound up its annual confer-
ence here with an appeal to
Pope John Paul II to avoid
contact with President Kurt
Waldheim of Austria during
his visit to Vienna later this
While the resolution expre-
ssed deep concern that such a
meeting would take place
the second between the pontiff
and Waldheim it pointedly
avoided any reference to
possible consequences for
Jewish^Catholic relations.
The pope's June 1987 audi-
ence with Waldheim drew
strong worldwide criticism for
what seemed to be a sanc-
tioning of Waldheim's wartime
The resolution adopted here
was a follow-up to a letter that
Congress president Theo Klein
sent to the Vatican secretary
of state, Cardinal Agostino
Klein wrote that the papal
trip to Austria was not only a
pastoral visit but could be
construed as having a political
character because of the
"impact of the pope on the
moral level."
"John Paul II could have
waited for such a visit to
Austria for the Austrians to do
their housecleaning at home,"
Klein wrote, an allusion to a

The Congress' position on
Waldheim was reinforced
when the World Jewish
Congress, with whom the
European Congress is affili-
ated, released a 65-page
dossier on Waldheim.

Budapest: Site of
Holocaust Memorial
Groundbreaking will take
place in Budapest July 3 for
the country's first public
memorial to the 600,000
Hungarian Jews who perished
in the Holocaust.
The Hungarian Holocaust
Victims and Heroes Memorial
is being sponsored by the
Emanuel Foundation for
Hungarian Culture, founded
here in 1986 to perpetuate the
memory of the Hungarian
Jewish Holocaust victims as
well as to revitalize Jewish life
among the approxiamtely
80,000 Jews still living in
The Emanuel Foundation
was named in honor of
Emanuel Schwartz, father of
actor Tony Curtis, who
pledged his help in restoring
Jewish sites in Hungary.
Curtis will lead a delegation
of Americans, many of them of
Hungarian descent, on a 10-
day visit beginning in late
June. Among the sites they
will visit will be Mati Sralka,
the town where Schwartz was
born in the late 1880s. Curtis
was born Bernard Schwartz,
June 3, 1925, in New YOrk.
Curtis will tape a documen-
tary of the tour, which will
include visits to towns of
former Jewish life.
Andor Weiss, executive vice
president of the foundation,
said the site that was chosen is
a mass grave of about 5,000
Jews from the Budapest
ghetto, which was liquidated
Jan. 18, 1945.
