Is U.S. Setting the Stage for PLO Entrance?
(JTA) The Carter
Administration's attitude
and relationship with the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization are under
scrutiny and questioning
again. The State Depart-
ment insists there is no
change in U.S. policy but
many in the Congress are
Much of the current situation
steins from recent developments
that include assertions by two
State Department officials to a
Congressional subcommittee that
the U.S. can have "informal"
contacts with the PLO without
violating the U.S. agreement
with Israel and from the waiver
by Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance of the restrictions to grant
a visa in late March to Shafik Al-
Hout, chief of the PLO's Beirut
operations, which-enabled him to
speak and travel freely in the
U.S. for three weeks.
Another incident was the
meeting by two Carter Admin-
istration officials with Al-Hout at
a party at the Syrian Embassy on
Syrian Nation Day.
A8 A RESULT, the House last
Wednesday modified the so-
called McGovern Amendment by
including the Solan-Derwinsky
Amendment to the State Depart-
ment's authorization legislation.
That puts direct responsibility
'for visas on the Secretary of
State rather than on the Im-
migration and Naturalization
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee did not take up the
amendment sponsored by Reps.
Stephen Solarz (D., N.Y.) and
Edward Derwinski (R., 111.) in
voting out the authorization
money bill for the State Depart-
ment for the coming fiscal year,
but Sen. George McGovern (D.,
S.D.) made it clear that his
measure was to support the
Helsinki Accords and not to
justify visas for PLO members.
The matter, committee sources
said, will be taken up on the
Senate floor.
4 The Department contends that
it acted on the Al-Hout visa
under regulations other than the
McGovern Amendment which it
wants to remain law but Solarz
pointed out that the Department
invoked the McGovern measure

Federation Approves
Study for Nursing Home
The Board of Directors of the
Tampa Jewish Federation has
approved $5,000 to finance its
share of a feasibility study for a
regional nursing home. The
Board heard presentations from
Goldie Shear, chairman of the
Regional Nursing Home Com-
mittee; Len Seligman, chairman
of the Executive Committee; and
Mark Shine, a member of the
Representatives of four area
Federations Orlando, Pinellas,
Sarasota and Tampa have
been meeting for over a year
exploring different aspects of a
Regional Nursing Home. Each of
the communities have been asked
to share in the funding of a
feasibility study in order for the
process to continue. The study
would include a complete demo-
graphic study, site selection, pre-
liminary designs, cost analysis,
financial- analysis and
preparation for a Certificate of
Need as required by the state of
Florida. At this time only
Pinellas and Tampa Federation
have voted funds for the
feasibility study.
The Regional Nursing Home
Committee has adopted the
following Koal: To provide
quality care in a Jewish atmos-
phere for persons who can no
longer live in their own homes or
a congregate facility and need
some nursing care. According to
Goldie Shear, "The goal of the
committee is to design and build
a facility that would, at least,
operate at a break-even point, but
(his is dependent on the number
and type of services that are pro-
grammed in accordance with the
goal of quality care. The facility
would have to be consistent with
our ability to pay for it!", she
There was much debate at the
Tampa Federation Board
meeting before the decision was
made to fund a share of the
feasibility study.

(JTA) An unofficial
announcement that Mexico
will increase its exports of
oil to Israel by 50 percent
from 30,000 barrels a
day to 45,000 has
touched off a furious anti-
Israel campaign by pro-
Palestinian, Communist
and other leftist elements

factions that will par-

is very much in evidence in
the news media.

(Socialist Workers Party),

aggression" against the rights of
the Palestinian people. It con-
tended that the Palestine
Liberation Organization is the
sole legitimate representative of
the Palestinians.
The statement was signed
by the leftist Mexican Peace
Movement, the Communist
Party, the Partido Popular
Socialista and the Socialist
Workers Party.
Tens of thousands of Israelis paid
tribute to the nearly 14,000
Israeli soldiers who died in four
wars and a war of attrition since
the Jewish State was founded 31
years ago. Sirens wailing all over
the country at precisely 11 a.m.
local time signaled the beginning
of Memorial Day observances
which, traditionally, precede
Independence Day that began at
sundown, May 1, and continued
through May 2.
At military cemeteries and
military bases bereaved families
and friends of the deceased
gathered along with rep-
resentatives of the government
and national institutions for
solemn memorial services. The El
Moleh Rahamim prayer was
recited and wreaths were laid on
A Warm Welcome for Tampa's Newest Russian Family
Leonid and Galina Grishen
stepped from the plane last
Friday at noon into the waiting
arms of her cousins Garold and
Svetlana Cherf and all of those at
the airport to greet the newest
Russian family felt the embrace
and the emotion.
Here was a family living in the
States about a year and now they
were greeting their mishpocha
who they had not seen in three
years. Galina Grishin's mother
and Garold Cherf s mother were
sisters. Their last meeting was in
Kharkov before the Cherfs left
But that was a long time ago
and a long time away. Today it
was the Cherfs and their three
children, Raphael, Mikhail and
Margarita, coming as members of
the settled Tampa community to
greet the newest arrivals of the
current Russian exodus.
Leonid Grishin is a cafeteria
supervisor and Galina is a

that the Grishins would arrive on
"Two weeks ago Attorney
General Griffin Bell released
25,000 visas. Of these, 17,000 are
to be used for Russians in
Rome," said Anne Thai,
Executive Director of Tampa
Jewish Social Service which
oversees the resettlement
program through funding by the
Tampa Jewish Federation.
"HIAS will be trying to move
1,000 people a week out of Rome
for the next 10 to 12 weeks,"
continued Ms. Thai.
Also at the airport and part of
the reception committee were
Gam and Ludmilla Dvorkin, who
arrived in Tampa April 6. Said
Garri Dvorkin, through the
translating services of his
English teacher, "It is better to
be greeting them than to be
greeted. I look forward to the day
when it is my family that we are
meeting." Dvorkin's family
remains in Russia awaiting exit
The reunion was just as it
should have been. Once the shock
of seeing each other was over, the
conversation settled down into
who had or had not gained weight
since they last were together.
With all the hand motions it was
not difficult to follow the chatter,
no matter in what language it
was taking place.
The families left the airport to
coninue their reunion at the
apartment set up by the Russian
resettlement program of the
Tampa Jewish Social Service.

that this was the first Memorial

peace with one of its Arab neigh-

assembly at the military
cemetery in Safad took note of
the treaty just signed with "one
of our strongest and greatest
neighbors," Egypt. Israel's
national objective, he said, was

decisive step toward achieving
this aim. We have done all we
could to ensure that the wars in
which these boys and men fell
will be the last."

HIAS has for 95 years
provided worldwide rescue and
migration aid to refugees. This

27,500 Jewish refugees, the vast
majority from the Soviet Union,

refugees during the 50-year span
from 1904 to 1954.

Marsha Sherman Reappointed
To UJA Women's Division Board Temple Dedicates Windows
The National Women's
Division Board of the United
Jewish Appeal has announced
the reappointment of Marsha
Sherman of Tampa as a regional
vice chairman, according to the
national chairman, Bernice
Waldman. Florida now has suf-
ficient population that it is a
region by itself.
"This will be my third term on
the National Executive Commit-
tee," said Marsha, "and I truly
enjoy the opportunity to set
policies." She currently serves on
the board of Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration and is chairman of its
Speakers Bureau. In addition,
she serves on the Women's
Division Board and Executive
Committee and is also com-
pleting a term on the board of the
Jewish Community Center.
Marsha is
president of the
Parent's Associ-
ation of Hillel
School where her
daughter, Jenni-
fer, is in the
fourth grade. As
president, Mar-
sha also serves
on the Board of
Hillel School.
Moving here four years ago
from Hollywood, Fla., with her
daughter and husband, Vernon, a
principal of Summit Develop-
ment Association, Marsha has
become as involved in Tampa as
she was in her former home. In
Hollywood she served on the
South Broward Federation
Board, was chairman of their
Women's Division, campaign
chairman, recipient of the Young

$30 Million Hotel
Shimberg, Kennedy and Frost
Inc., Tampa real estate develop-

has signed an agreement with
Walt Disney World to build a $30
million, 600-room hotel at Lake
Buena Vista, just east of the
central Florida theme park.
Che firm currently owns and
operates the 400-room Hotel
Royal Plaza, one of four major
hotels which make up the Lake
Buena Vista hotel complex.
Mandell "Hinks" Shimberg,
long-time developer in the Tampa
Bay area, said the facility is
fx pec ted to be opened in time to
accommodate the anticipated
increase in visitor traffic to the
central Florida attraction, which
is preparing to commence con-
struction of the $500 million
Experimental Community of
Tomorrow (EPCOT).
Disney World officials predict
that facility will open on Oct. 1,
1982 and result in a near doubling
of attendance at the central
Florida theme park.
"I can't think of a more ex-
citing area to build in," Shimberg

Red Cross Recognizes Magen David
the first time in its history, the
American National Red Cross
issued an official invitation to
Magen David Adorn, Israel's Red
Cross, to send a delegation to the
ARC national convention in
Kansas City, Mo., May 13 to 16
which will be attended by more
than 3,800 delegates from ARC
chapters all over the United
States, it was announced here by
the American Red Magen David
for Israel.
George M. Elsey, ARC presi-
dent, in his letter of invitation,
assured the MDA delegates of a
warm welcome and invited them
to a 10-day tour of ARC chapters
throughout the country. The
MDA delegation will be headed
by Prof. Moshe Many, chairman
of the international department.
ELSEY ALSO extended an
invitation to ARMDI, MDA's
sole support arm in the U.S.,
whose delegation will consist of
Joseph Handel man, national
president; Benjamin Saxe,
executive vice president; David
Sidman and Pearl Stahl, national
Despite the fact that MDA has
been consistently denied
membership in the International
Red Cross (IRC), because the
MDA red Star of David symbol
has not been accepted, the ARC
has always extended to MDA its
full support and cooperation.
As evidence of this support,
ARC recently instructed its
chapters to include the MDA red
Star of David flag whenever they
display the other three recog-
nized Red Cross flags the Red

"It has been told thee, 0 man,
what the Lord doth require of
thee. Only to do justly, and to
love mercy, and to walk humbly
with thy God."
This was Rabbi David L.^
Zielonka's favorite verse. To-
night at Temple Schaarai Zedek,
during services beginning at 8
p.m., a new window in the foyer
will be formally dedicated to his
memory. Eventually, there will
be three windows in the foyer
carrying out the Biblical theme
and the middle one, representing
mercy, will be designated as the
Zielonka Memorial.
Rabbi Zielonka died in 1977
having served Temple Schaarai
Zedek as rabbi from 1930-1970
and as rabbi emeritus from 1970-
1977. A graduate of Hebrew
Union College, Rabbi Zielonka
founded the Department of Reli-
gion at the University of Tampa
and was the last of the original
faculty members. He participated
in many community endeavors.
During his tenure, there was very
little in Tampa that did not
receive his attention.

Secca, prominent Tampa artist

through contributions made to

memory. Anyone wishing to

The Dollar Sign Figure
As Jackson sees it, "There are those who believe
that because the number of people leaving the Soviet
Union has increased, we ought to repeal the Jackson
Amendment. I want you to know that many of those
who are now urging repeal because the numbers have
been going up were urging repeal last year because
they said the numbers were going down.
"The fact is that the numbers they are in-
terested in are preceded by dollar signs. They want
government credits to finance trade with the Soviet
Union because they hope to have the VS. govern-
ment supply the cash the Soviets need to buy their
"They're not interested in visas; they're in-
terested in bills of lading. They're not interested in
how many people are gaining their freedom from
Soviet oppression; they're interested in the volume
of goods they can ship to Soviet customers."
This is what we have been saying in these
columns all along. And so, the 31st anniversary of
Israeli independence finds the nation at peace and
with high hopes for the future. But the Soviet
menace floats like a cloud not only over its own
freedom celebration, but over free peoples every-

Sadat Vows to Dispel
Israeli Suspicions, Fears
President Anwar Sadat angrily
defied the 16 Arab states that
have broken relations with Egypt
because of its peace treaty with
Israel and pledged, in a May Day
speech, to "dispel Israeli fears
and suspicions. Let those (Arabs)
who broke off relations with as
understand that we shall not
retreat." he said.
"God willing, the peace
operation and the normalization
of relations will continue."
Sadat added, in his speech at
the Red Sea town of Safaga, "If
Israel makes one step forward,
we shall match it with two steps
to encourage it."
"HE WAS especially bitter
toward Saudi Arabia, Egypt's
principal financial backer since
the Yom Kippur War, and ac-
cused the Saudis of bribing other
Arab states to sever relations
with Egypt.
The Egyptian leader said those
countries were either paid or took
the action as a courtesy to Saudi
Arabia because of its oil wealth.
"The countries which
paid and those who did it out of
courtesy told me," Sadat said.
He charged that the Saudis
themselves were blackmailed by
the leaders of Syria, Iraq, Libya
and the Palestinians.
SADAT did not rule oat a cut-
off of Saudi money to finance
Egypt's purchases of weapons
from the U.S. Bat he said
revenues from the Suez Canal
and the Sinai oil fields, once they
are returned to Egypt, would
compensate for the expected loss.

to advance the establishment of a
Palestinian state on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip but said he
would not negotiate with Israel

China Card in Israel's Deck
THE CHINESE are as crafty
as the Soviets. Since both are
"have-not" Communist states,
althougfa in immensely different
proportion, it is not at all sur-
prising that they share, similar *.
political practices.
As historical arch enemies,
they are a study of these prac-
tices in conflict. Since Marxism
preaches the unity of proletarian
ideals, the Sino-Soviet conflict
demonstrates that Marxism is
not monolithic
In effect. Marxism is whatever

WITHIN the elements of the
Sino-Soviet straggle, it is im-
portant to see China in terms of
the Soviet Union's development
circa the mid-1930s. The recent
L'.S accord with China equates
with the Rooseveltian recognition
of the Soviet Union of that era.
Furthermore, both American
diplomatic maneuvers were
dominated by similar economic
objectives on either side of the
maneuver. RooseVelt was at-
tempting to lead the nation out of
the depths of our greatest
depression at the same time that
the Soviets recognized that the
proletarian paradise would not, of
itself, change Russia's archaic
feudalism without exposure to
western capitalist enterprise,
however paranoid the exposure
might betray them to be.
The same holds true today.
America's balance of trade is a
disaster. We may not be in a
great depression, but our rate of
inflation presages such a pos-
sibility at the same time that
other capitalist societies look to
us without relief for s solution to
the Arsbization of their
previously phenomenal wealth.
Chinese just when they have
come to the same realization
about their industrial develop-
ment that the Soviets came to in
the Roosevelt years seems to us a
second heaven-sent opportunity
out of our own economic
If the historic parallels hold
true, however, we should be in no
excessively hopeful mood about
the recent American accord with
China. The Soviets have grown
up to give us nothing but salt for
the wounds they inflict upon us
What the Chinese have in store
for us once we show them the way
through the maze of their own
industrial coming of age is yet s
matter of pure speculation
ONE BRIGHT ray of hope at
the moment is the Chinese
awareness of Soviet ambitions in
the Middle East, which they see
far more clearly than we do.
Predictably, this has changed to
some extent their previously iron-
fisted attitude toward Israel.
And, to some extent, this
counterbalances a new attitude in
our own country toward the
Israelis that is not only ugly, but
unrealistic and self-destructive,
The Arsbization of capitalist

Israel Counts Appalling Statistics
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel counted its war
dead and the total was appalling for a nation of little
more than three million souls 13,968 soldiers, men
and women, lost in four wars and a war of attrition
since the Jewish State was founded 31 years ago.
Israel's War for Independence in 1948 claimed
5^10 soldiers. The brief Sinai campaign of 1956
added another 421 dead. In the 10 years from 1975-
1967,930 more Israeli soldiers were killed.
THE DEATH TOLL in the Six-Day War was
877 soldiers, but another 1,010 lost their lives in the
war of attrition with Egypt from June 15, 1967 to
Dec. 31, 1969; 412 were killed in 1970, 200 in 1971
and 189 in 1972.
In 1973, before the outbreak of the Yom Kippur
War, an additional 101 soldiers died. In the war
itself, 4,018 Israeli soldiers were killed in action.
the west. The beat way to kow*
tow to your enemy is to share hit
antipathies. Example: if you,
want Arab oil. no matter whit
the cost, think increasingly that
Israel is expendable.
Reckoned in these terms, it it
not Araby alone that we emulate
but increasingly we share j
similar interest with the
Russians, who are about as anti-
Semitic as a people can be.
TO THE Chinese, however,
anti-Semitism, which is uniquely
a Christian phenomenon and
Islamic to a lesser extent, is
essentially foreign.
This means that the Chinese
can be anti-Israel without suf-
fering the disadvantage of having
their political assessments
clouded by anti-Semitic
mythologies, as well.
The positive result here u
already manifest. Red China's
refusal to recognize Israel and its
iron-fisted anti-Israel attitudes
have been visibly softening
recently in its greater anxiety
over "hegemony," China's word-
for Soviet expansionism, par
ticularly in the Middle East.
THIS IS bound to have 1
positive effect on our own new
ugliness to which I previously
referred our assessment of
Israel as a burden we no longer
wish to bear, whether morally or
As we grumble more and more
about Israel to satisfy the Arabs,
the Chinese show a perceptibly
developing warmth toward Israel
as the only force in the Middle
East today accountable for
Soviet caution in its expansionist
policies there.
It would be a mistake to regard
these important realities as
political and military ab-
stractions. The Israelis, let it not *
be forgotten, are no slouches in
contemporary technology also.
Whileithe U.S. has predicated its
new accord with the Chinese on
supplying them with this tech-
nology, we have paid little heed
to the fact that the Israelis are
capable of doing just that. too.
WHAT WE have in mind is
the supplying of an ocean of
products to shore up our
miserable foreign trade deficit
The Chinese don't want an ocean,
and the Israelis wouldn't be able
to give it to them. If the Chinese
today are indeed the Soviets of
the mid-1930's, then all they do
want are the principle and some
prototypes in every field of their
This, the Israelis can give the
Chinese in many technological
enterprises, and far more
economically than we can.
What runs contrary to our own
best interests on two scores in the

the basis that Israel is > "bv-

recognise the peculiar techno-^

Israel Pays Tribute
to It's Dead Soldiers
Continued from Page 1
Ezer Weizman noted that Israel's
fallen soldiers had one thing in
common: "The vision of resur-
rection. Because they cannot say
it themselves, we must say it for
them. They did not fall for the
sake of victory alone but rather
for the end to all wars and for the
advent of peace."
WEIZMAN hailed the peace
treaty with Egypt as "the begin-
ning of the road" and pledged
that Israel would do all it could to
make peace with its other neigh-
bors. The Defense Minister also
referred to the outrage att
Nahariya. He warned those!
responsible for it that "these acts,

determination to overcome the

inflation rate for 1978 was
48.1 percent, pushing the
cost of living to 2'/i times
what it was three years ago,
the government reports.
The Israeli national
bureau of statistics reported
that the consumer price
index rose 3.4 percent in
December to reach the 48
t percent figure for the vear.
l'he inflation rate for 1977
was 42.5 percent.
It is obvious that a 1979
pledge which was not an
increase over 1978, is ac-
tually a reduced pledge. The
inflation rate in Israel is so
overwhelming that each
pledge must be greatly
increased iust to maintain

JERUSALEM The Fertility
Clinic at the Hadassah-Hebrew
University Medical Center at-
tracts patients not only from all
over Israel but from all parts of
the Middle East, including Arab
countries at war with Israel, like
Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia,
Lebanon, and Syria, as well as
the Far East, Europe and the
United States. Some patients fly
in to attend the clinic on days as-
signed to them.
The clinic, headed by Dr.
Joseph Schenker, is in the
Gynecology and Obstetrics De-
partment. It is especially suc-
cessful in promoting pregnancy
in women who have ovulation
problems. There are women at
Hadassah who have sought
medical help elsewhere for over
ten years to become pregnant.
One of them, a mother of quad-
ruplets, says, "Dr. Schenker and
his team are wizards there are
not enough superlatives to
describe them."
THE QUADS were born after
treatment in the clinic. She now
is back at Hadassah having given
birth to another child after a gap
of four years and further treat-
ment in the clinic.
Dr. Schenker reports that the
clinic has achieved almost 95 per
cent success inducing ovulation.
It is a complicated process which
needs close follow-up of patients
nearly every day, he explains.
The treatment is very sophis-
ticated and can only be given by
specialists with the aid of labor-
atories which give hormonal esti-
mates within a few hours.
Pergonal, a hormone which is
extracted from women in meno-
pause, is the preferred drug in the
clinic to induce ovulation. Israel
is the only country in the world
which provides Perganol free.
One ampule costs $15, and there
are women who get 100 ampules a
month. This is because the coun-
try encourages population
growth. The drug is provided to
Jews and Arabs alike.
"TREATMENT with Perganol
must be properly carried out,"
Dr. Schenker says, "because it
may result in severe complica-
tions if not monitored well. We
are now putting all data required
to determine the exact time of
ovulation for each patient into a
new computer program that we
have developed. Through this
program, we are able to pinpoint
the day of ovulation. Once this is
known, fertilization of the egg at
the correct time results in preg-
nancy. Special equipment has
been developed in the department
to measure the various factors
affecting ovulation.
Dr. Schenker explains that
lack of ovulation is not the only
cause of sterilty. There may be
mechanical problems such as ob-
struction of the tubes, mainly
caused by infections due to in-
duced abortion, veneral disease
or even the use of an intra-uterine
device. If the damage is due to
infection, surgical treatment may
be unsuccessful. The Department
uses micro-surgical techniques
for the correction of tubal ob-
Adhesions may also cause
sterility. These may be in the
peritoneal cavity or they may be
in the uterus itself. The basic
research which has been done at
Hadassah on the induction of ad-
hesions as a contraceptive
method is helpful in the treat-
ment of infertility due to intra-
uterine adhesions.
Clinic treats men as well as
women. In the United States.
fertility clinics usually deal with
women, while men are treated by
urologists. Male infertility may
be due to damage to germinal
tissue of the testes, dilation of the
veins, or obstruction of the tubes
through which the sperm pass, or
hormonal inbalance.

"HI AS was anticipating

arrival of the Grishins we will
have taken six people this year
out of the total of 18 expected in
1979. We are very low on lamps,
tables and chairs and small
kitchen items.
"We especially need bed linens
and blankets. And we truly
welcome all contributions. For
larger items we can arrange pick-
up service. And we would be
happy to accept Green Stamps to
ease our shopping woes," Paula
"The volunteers set up an
apartment with just the basics,"
Paula stressed. "It is not a
luxurious arrangement. And we
try to have the refrigerator filled
with basic supplies. All this we
do on a one-time-only basis. And
this week it has all been accom-
plished between noon Tuesday
