presidential contest against
Reagan. 1 linckley at the time had

The president-elect of the Neo-
Nazi American Socialist Party,
Michael C. Allen, said Tuesday
that Hinckley was thrown out of
the party more than a year ago
because he "wanted to shoot
people and blow things up." He
called Hinckley "a nut," who had
joined the party in 1978. He said
Hinckley was expelled in
November, 1979.
Hinckley told police after his
arrest Monday that he had been a
member of the Neo-Nazi Socialist
Party but had left it because the
parly was loo timid for him.
IN THE aftermath of the
shooting, Vice President George
Bush flew back from a speaking
engagement in Texas. During the
flight back, Secretary of State
Alexander Haig appeared on
national television to announce
I hat. (lending the return of Bush,
he was "in charge" of affairs.
The statement has since been
adjusted to suggest that Haig
merely meant he was standing by
pending Bush's return. The
Constitution stipulates that it is
the Speaker of the House who
takes over if both the President
and the Vice President should
become incapable of performing
their duties.
Neither was the case, even
considering that Reagan was
under surgery for well upward of
two hours.
The flap over Haig's an-
nouncement was considered
important in light of the apparent
struggle for power involving
Secretary Haig, whose somewhat
energetic statements on foreign
policy are now being trimmed as
a consequence of new and sweep-
ing authority last week given to
Vice President Bush by President
Reagan in foreign affairs.
Haig was scheduled to leave on
a tour of the Middle East Friday,
including Israel and Egypt. At
mid-week, it was not considered
likely that the assassination
attempt on President Reagan
would postpone Haig's trip.

impaign Activities Highlight Weekend
Saturday evening, April 4, and Sunday morn-
ing, April 5, the Tampa Jewish community will
have an opportunity to participate in two major
events on behalf of the 1981 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Appeal Campaign.
At the Host International Hotel, Congressman
Jack Kemp will address the Annual Campaign
Dinner beginning with cocktails at 7:30 p.m.,
followed by dinner and dancing at 8:15 p.m.
The Tampa Jewish Federation Women's
Division will be honored by Maas Brothers with a
spring buffet at 9 a.m. on April 5, in their Sun-
coast Restaurant at Westshore. Featured guest
will be Yael Dayan, daughter of Moshe Dayan
and well known novelist.
The two events have become highlights for the
Federation campaign and each year participation
has increased.
A highlight of the April 4 evening promises to
be an address by New York Congressman Jack
Kemp. Kemp, a strong proponet for the State of
Israel was recently quoted as stating that he
"would oppose the Saudi deal (F-15 airplanes)
unless there is more evidence of a quid pro quo
between Saudi Arabia and the U.S. The Saudis
must begin to join the peace process and make a
step toward the relaxation of tension and the re-
jection of Jihad, a holy war against Israel."
An elegant evening has been planned under the
direction of Goldie Shear, Campaign Vice Chair-
man, and her planning committee.
In addition to the opportunity to hear Yael
Dayan, an elegant fashion show has been planned
by Maas Brothers. Co-Chairmen of the Maas
Brothers gala are Linda Blum and Sharon Stein.
According to Mike Levine, Campaign General
Chairman, "the events of this weekend will aid
immeasurably to boost the campaign well on its
way towards the Million dollar goal."

Reagan Assassination Attempt:
Main Issue is Violence
Once again, the nation is rocked by violence in
its highest quarters. The assassination attempt on
the life of President Ron4# Reagan Monday leaves
us stunned.
We are grateful that the President has survived.
We are saddened by the tragic impact of the shooting
on Mr. Reagan's press secretary, James Brady, as
well as on the lives of the law enforcement officers
who were also victims of John Hinckley, Jr., now
charged by police as the would-be assassin.
A wrinkle in Hinckley's background is his
alledged anti-Semitic connections with Posse
Comitatus, an organization founded by a William
Dudley Pelley admirer, whose Silver Shirts struck
fear in the hearts of Jews in the mid-1930 's.
But these are side issues, as is the charge that
the Secret Service should have been more careful in
keeping tabs on people like Hinckley, who was
arrested last October in Nashville, Tenn. for posses-
sion of three pistols and a cache of ammunition dur-
ing a stopover there by President Jimmy Carter.
The main issue is the violent nature of American
civilization, the staggering growth of crime to which
President Reagan had alluded just moments before
his shooting in an address to an AFL-CIO gathering
in the Washington Hilton. The main issue is the
breakdown of our law enforcement system.
The main issue is that, so far, people are angered
by this but not angered enough. Not as angry as
the President's daughter, Maureen Reagan, who
called on the nation Tuesday for an aroused public
opinion once and for all to launch an all-out war
against the violence to which, today, we are all
This is the main issue. We are, as we say, grate-
ful that the President has survived and will be back
at work before long. But the main issue must not be
forgotten. It must be pursued.
T ay-Sachs Testing
Thanks to Tampa Section, National Council of
Jewish Women, free testing for Tay-Sachs is avail-
able at the University of South Florida Genetics
Center during the entire month of April. FREE!
For Tay-Sachs, there is no known cure. And it
strikes descendants of Askenazi Jewry, which make
up 90 percent of the American Jewish population.
This means you probably need to be tested. Not only
is there no charge, but you can make an appointment
for your own time. Call 974-2456 and give your
children and grandchildren and maybe distant mem-
bers of your family a chance to avoid a tragedy. You
can be a carrier without ever showing any signs of
the disease. Only this test will tell.
During April, take advantage to this opportuni-
ty to track down a killer.
"Masada," the inspiring epic
of first century freedom fighters
locked in death struggle against
the awesome forces of the Roman
Empire, airs April 5, 6, 7, and 8
The eight-hour "ABC Novel
for Television," starring Peter
O'Toole and Peter Strauss as
opposing leaders of the Armies,
will be presented in two-hour seg-
ments on four days.
On the top of Mount Masada,
visitors walk cautiously,
disturbing nothing, looking with
eyes that strain to recreate the
life that once hummed around
these piles of rocks, these time-
ravaged buildings identified by
numbered arrowed signs C'8

buried, with full military honors,
in a tomb at the base of the
. .The heroes are gone, the in-
spiration remains.
The details regarding Masada
can be told briefly, tersely, in
numbers: dates, dimensions,
troop count. Body count. Ten to
15 thousand Roman soldiers and
slaves on the desert floor; 960
defiant men, women and children
atop the rock in the year 73 A. D.
Numbers, recounted briefly.
The human story of Masada is
not so simple. The human story
involves an empire challenged
and held to a frustrating stand-
still by a relative handful of
ragged desert freedom fighters.
The human story involves two
extraordinary men; both leaders,
both compassionate men, un-
derstanding, brave and proud,
set against one another in an epic
standoff that would write an
unparalleled tale of human valor
in the pages of history.
That story, retold through a
screenplay based on the report of
a first century historiam and
fleshed out with the addition of
dramatic characters in the
writer's imaginations, will air in
four parts when the ABC
Television Network presents the
event that is "Masada," an" ABC
Novel for Television," airing
Sunday, April 5, Monday, April
6, Tuesday, April 7, and Wed-
nesday, April 8 (all times 9-11
p.m.. ESTI.
The film, directed by Boris
Sagal, star Peter OToole and
Peter Strauss as the two leaders,
different in every way save then-
mutual desire for an honorable
peace, forced into a war to the
end of court intrigues and im-
perial greed. The rest of the
international cast of starts, which
includes Barbara Carrera, Nigel
Davenport, Alan Feinstein,
Giulia Pagano, Anthony Quayle,
Denis Quilley, Paul L. Smith,
Anthony Valentine, Timothy
West and David Warner, beings
life to the men and women who
stood behind or plotted
against the two men who
sought some sane answer in an
insane comflict.
The details: Masada is a roc!:
on the edge of the Judean desert,
with a sheer drop of more than
1,300 feet to the shore of the
Dead Sea. On that rock, King
Herod created a fortress for
himself during the years 36-30
B.C., an inpregnable fortress in
which he could defend himself,
should the people he ruled decide
to depose him and restore their
own king to the throne.
Herod died, but the fortress
stood. And, when the Roman
Army conquered Jerusalem in 70
A.D., driving the bulk of the
citizens from the country, a band
of ferocious fighters family
men forced into the warrior role
by an unquenchable demand for
freedom in their own land
established a base in Herod's
palace atop Masada, a base from
which they could endlessly
torment the Romans with mid-
night raids, returning safely to
their mountain stronghold.
They were called "Zealots,"
after a word meaning fanatic
devotion to a cause. Their cause
was freedom, and their
fanaticism was a source of pride.
By 72 A.D., after two years of
suffering the losses and the
insults heaped upon it by the
seemingly untouchable resistance
fighters, the occupying army
found the situation intolerable.

Sun Ceremony Due April 8
Editor's Note: On April 8, an
\vent which occurs only once in
28 years will take place.
The Blessing of the Sun. Rabbi
ndberg explains what the
t,iessing is and why and how it
to be. And as he says,
> Don't let this opportunity go
L The next occasion will be
Here, in Tampa, we are readily
tongnizant of the many bounties
Df the sun. It shines brightly
down upon us, makes the crops to
ow, lures tourists to our area to
ik up its warm rays, and lends
cheerful glow to our commu-
ity. We take the sun for granted
except for those times when it
fains too long). Yet, the sun,
along with all the hosts of the
ens are part of God's
creation. In Judaism we are
aught to acknowledge the source
[of our blessings in prayful thanks
lio our Creator. Thus Judaism has
[devised a blessing for the sun, as
la reminder of God's creation of
|the Universe, in all its glory.
The blessing of the sun is
[based on very complex calcu-
lations. Jewish tradition has a
[calendar system that is based on
Iboth the lunar and solar cycles.
|Our months are lunar. Each
[month has 29 or 30 days and
[coincides with the waxing and
[waning of the moon. Yet, our
I holiday cycle is based on the solar
year and its seasons. Passover
must always come in the Spring.
I Sukkot is a Fall harvest holiday.
For this reason we add extra
months to the calendar (7 out of
19 years) and make other smaller
adjustments to coordinate the
lunar and solar years.
Each year the earth retraces its
path around the sun The seasons
are set according to specific as-
tronomical events. For the
northern hemisphere, Autumn
begins with the Fall equinox
(when the sun appears to cross
the celestial equator from north
to south); Summer begins with
the summer solstice (when the
sun is directly over the tropic of
Cancer); winter begins with the
winter solstice, and the Vernal
equinox begins the Spring.
Rabbinic tradition knew the
changing of the seasons very
well. The Hebrew term for the
season is "Tekufah". (Plural:
Tekufot". More specifically this
term refers to the time of the
solstice or equinox). The Rabbis
had to be very careful in the cal-
culation of the Vernal (Spring)
equinox, because the correct
liming of Passover was
dependent upon it. Many of the
Rabbinic authorities were said to
e experts in astronomy.

Rabbi Martin I. Sandberg
Shemuef (2nd cent. C.E. Bab-
ylonia) is said to have known the
courses of the stars in the sky as
well as the streets of his own city.
With all this in mind, we can
now appreciate the source in the
Gemara (codice of Jewish Law,
4th 6th cent. C.E.) which is the
origin of the blessing for the sun:
"Our Rabbis taught: He who
sees the sun at its turning point
(Tekufah), the moon in its power,
the planets in their orbits, or the
signs of the zodiac in their order
should say: Blessed are You who
makes the work of creation. And
when does this happen? Abaye
said: Every twenty-eight years
when the cycle begins again and
the Nisan (Spring) equinox falls
in Saturn on the Evening of
Tuesday, going into Wed-
nesday." (Berachot 69a)
This discussion is based on
certain calculations of the exact
date of the creation of the
universe. While there were
several competing theories as to
this date and the exact interval
that has transpired since that
time, Jewish Tradition settled on
a fairly simple (by comparison
onlv!) svstem for calculating the
cycle of the sun. The first vernal
equinox happened on a Tuesday
evening at 6 p.m., Jerusalem
time, according to this system.
The sun returns to that percise
place in the sky, at that same
time, only once in twenty-eight
years. Hence the blessing of the
sun is said on the morning
following the reoccurence of the
first vernal equinox every 28
This is the year! The blessing
of the sun is to be said on
Wednesday morning, April 8.
Congregations around the world
will gather to mark this special
occasion with prayers and
thanksgiving. The service, as it
has developed through the
centuries, is fairly simple.
Selections from the Torah, Pro-
phets and Writings are recited.
The central blessing is then,
pronounced: "Blessed are You,
O Lord our God, King of the Uni-
verse who makes the work of
Creation." (Oseh Ma-aseh
V'raishit) This is then followed
by psalms and meditations. The
service takes place in the morn-
ing, outside where the sun can be
9een, after regular morning
prayers. Through this simple
ritual we reaffirm our dependence
on God's creation. We acknowl-
edge the beauty and order of His
universe and we realize how very
needful we are of all of His gifts.
The blessing of the sun comes
only once every 28 years. The
next occasion will be April 8,
2009. So don't let this oppor-
tunity go by. It will be along time
waiting forth* next time around.

If Saudis Will Have
Peace RoleHaig
(JTA) Secretary of State
Alexander Haig said that it
was "too early" to speak
about Saudi Arabia's role
in Lhe^Middle East peace
process. Haig, who leaves
Apr. 3 on a four-country
tour of the Middle East,
including Saudi Arabia,
was asked by Sen. Alfonse
D'Amato (R., N.Y.) what
he was doing to bring Saudi
Arabia into the peace
A contention of U.S.
ponents of the Reagan
ministration's intention
provide Saudi Arabia with equip-
ment to improve the combat
capabilities of its 62 F-15 war-
planes is that Saudi Arabia is
campaigning against the Camp
David accords.
HAIG TOLD D'Amato at
hearings on foreign aid before the
Senate Subcommittee on Foreign
Operations, that from his "first-
hand experience while in the
White House," when Henry
Kissinger was Secretary of State,
Saudi Arabia was "relatively
constructive" and "at least
benignly respectful."
He said, however, that the
Camp David accords had "dis-
rupted that somewhat" and
indicated that it would be up to
historians to determine if.that
was caused by "American mis-
management and incompetence
or something deeper."
When D'Amato persisted in
asking Haig if he would raise the
matter of the peace process with
the Saudis, the Secretary of State
replied "Not in the context of
your question." He noted that
"the peace process involves the
parties themselves," observing
that "Saudi Arabia is certainly
one of those neighboring states."
SEN. DENNIS DeConcini (D.,
Ariz.) asked Haig if the Ad-
ministration is supportive of the
op- Camp David accords. In a tone of
Adgf? surprise, Haig responded, "Ab-
to solutely; I hope I didn't leave
any doubt about it. The peace
process is a consequence of the
Camp David accords. We are now
engaged in it from two aspects
the autonomy talks (for the West
Bank and Gaza) and the peace-
keeping force" in Sinai.
Haig said that among the
differences in approach between
the Reagan and Carter Ad-
ministrations in the peace
process was that "We are not
going to have a myopic pre-
occupation with the Arab-Israeli
conflict exclusively." He waa
alluding to the Administration's
view that the overriding priority
is to stem Soviet intervention in
the Middle East

Anti-Semitism Reported Strong
public opinion poll showing
that anti-Semitism is still
strong in West Germany
has been confirmed by
security services which re-
ported that anti-Semitic in-
cidents have increased
alarmingly in the country
over the past year.
According to a public opinion
poll conducted by sociologist
Badi Panahi, 50 percent of those
surveyed have negative feelings
about Jews, and one-third have
very strong anti-Semitic
prejudices. Just before this poll
was published in Stern magazine,
a government survey published
in Der Spiegel news magazine
showed that 18 percent of West
German voters believe "Germany
had it better under Hitler."
THE POLL published in Stern
said that 27 percent of West
Germans believe "some races are
predisposed to be more immoral
than others": 14 percent believe
"you have to keep in mind that
Jews exercise a damaging in-
fluence on Western Christian
culture"; 56 percent did not share
this view; 16 percent rejected it
"moderately," and 10.5 percent
reject it "weakly."
According to Stern despite the
disclosure of Nazi murders and
the telecasting of such films as
the Holocaust. anti-Jewish pre-
judices have still not died out.
Meanwhile, security agencies
reported 42 incidents of vandal-
ism against Jewish cemeteries,
monuments and synagogues in
1980 compared to 35 in 1979.
There were 44 cases in which
Jewish activists were threatened
or plots were uncovered to
murder Jewish leaders. Most of
these developments were con-
centrated in recent months.
IN THE Cologne suburb of
Deutz. 30 Jewish gravestones
were destroyed and others
daubed with slogans such as
"Adolf (Hitler) Lives." In the old
Jewish cemetery in Aschafen-
burg, 87 gravestones were
desecrated last November and
partially destroyed. In August.
1980, 152 gravestones were over-
turned and damaged in the same
cemetery, and similar crimes
were committed in more recent
months in Worms and Bad
Large-scale damage to Jewish
gravestones was reported from
Frankfurt, the city with the
second largest Jewish commu-
nity in West Germany. Swas-
tikas and Nazi slogans were
daubed on the stones. A monu-
ment at the site of the old syna-
gogue in Frankfurt and another
Jewish site in a public park were
defaced with anti-Semitic
Police reported evidence of
close cooperation between
German and non-German ex-
tremist groups, the latter notably
Palestinians supporting the
Palestinian Liberation Or-
increasingly concerned with new
evidence of contacts between neo-
Nazis in West Germany and El
Fatah, the terrorist arm of the
PLO. Many members of the out-
lawed. "Wehrsportgruppe Hoff-
man," a neo-Nazi paramilitary
organization masquerading as a
sports club, have received train-
ing at PLO camps in Lebanon.
The leader of the group, Karl-
Heinz' Hoffman, visited Beirut
several times in recent months
and was hosted there by the
PLO. The Government it re-
ported to be playing down these
facts for fear of harming its rela-
tions with the Arab countries.

Semitic incidents and to the

showed that 18 percent of West

Meetings With Arabs Make Tempers Flare
Bar Mitzvah
Shimon Peres, chairman
of the Labor Party, ap-
parently had meetings last
week with King Hassan of
Morocco in that country
and with Prince Moham-
mad, brother of King Hus-
sein of Jordan, in London.
But the nature of those
contacts and their implica-
tions, if any, for broadening
the Middle East peace pro-
cess remained obscure as
Labor and the Likut
government traded angry
charges and counter-
charges over the propriety
of Peres' alleged meetings.
PERES, who refused to con-
firm the reports of his meetings
but would not deny them, ac-
cused Begin's office of "leaking"
the story and having the State-
owned television broadcast a
"completely baseless and
fabricated" account "for local
consumption during the election
Begin hotly denied Peres
charges at a Cabinet meeting and
accused the opposition leader of
"libel." Ohter Cabinet ministers
joined in the attack on Peres, and
Justice Minister Moshe Nissim
assailed Peres for trying to
undercut the government by
meeting a foreign chief of state
(King Hassan) without the'
governments knowledge or
approval Peres defended his
right to meat Arab leaders
abroad and denounced Nissim far
sounding off about something he
knew nothing about
When Peres arrived home last
Friday, he said he had no meet-
ings with Arab leaders in Europe.
Observers noted that Morocco is
not in Europe. Peres admitted
indirectly to the meetings when
he charged Begins office with
leaking the story. Morocco issued
in official denial that the meet-
ings took place. Peres would say
only that the denial "stood by
Sources close to Peres insisted
that the Prime Minister's Office
was aware of Peres' scheduled
meetings and noted that the
Labor leader was accompanied by
a security agent which would not
have been the case if the govern-
ment were in the dark. Sources in
the Prime Minister's Office con-
firmed later that Begin and hit
military aide, Gen. Ephraim
Poran, knew of the meeting with
Hassan but not of the meeting
with Prince Mohammad, believed

Report Soviet Aircraft
Over Saudis 'Regularly'
Soviet aircraft regularly fly over
Saudi Arabia with Saudi per-
mission between the Soviet
Union and Soviet bases in
Ethiopia and Aden, both within
striking distance of the Middle
East oil fields and the Suez
The State Department con-
firmed this development as Sec-
retary of State Alexander Haig
was prepared to visit Saudi
Arabia on his four-country
Middle East trip beginning Apr.
3 to assess means to defend the
oil fields, including Saudi
Arabia's against Soviet penetra-
tion and possible takeover.
"THERE ARE regulary
scheduled commercial passenger
and freight flights by Aeroflot
jetween the Soviet Union and
those countries (Ethiopia and
Aden)," the State Department
told this reporter. "These flights
over-fly Saudi Arabia," the
department said. Soviet aircraft
can easily carry munitions and
troops as well as civilians and
ordinary freight.
The question was raised at the
State Department after Natio. il
Review, the conservative weekly
edited by William Buckley,
reported in its current edition
that Saudi Arabia is allowing the
overflights and, in addition,
transshipment of Soviet-built
tanks to Iraq. The Department
had no comment on the report
regarding tanks.
"The Saudis are the major
obstacle to an American presence
in the Gulf," which the Reagan
Administration is trying to
establish, National Review's
article said.
"BY HIRING Pakistani mer-
cenaries, by buying German and
French planes, they hope to build
an armory that will make them
independent and able to keep the
Americans from establishing a
presence nearby. They do not
seem nearly as concerned about
the Soviet overflights they
permit to Aden and Ethiopia, and
they have allowed Soviet-built
tanks to be unloaded at Saudi
ports for trans-shipment to
Iraq," the National Revitw said.
Later, at a press conference, he
said, "I have met openly and
secretly with Arab leaders. On
the occasions where the meetings
were secret, I respect the promise
to keep them secret, and I am not
ready to refer to them. About the
supposed meeting with King
Hassan of Morocco, the (Rabat)
Palace denied this meeting, and I
have nothing to add to this
HE WENT on to say, "As the
person heading the (Labor)
Alignment, the largest political
movement in Israel, it is my duty
to seriously check what can be
done and what cannot be done,
with whom one can speak on
what, what is real and what is
possible, what is serious and
what is true, and without fear of
anybody come-to the people an-1
say: This is possible and this is
impossible. This has prospect
and this does not,' in order to
present to the people perspec-
tives for the future of the State
which encompass both realism
and vision."
Peres insisted that whenever
he has met with Arab leaders, "I
explain to them the position of
the Labor Party which negates a
separate Palestinian state, which
is against negotiation with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, which is for a united Jeru-
salem and which is for defensible
Without referring to any meet-
ing with a Jordanian principal,
Peres said he thought the Labor
Party's "Jordanian option" was
still valid and that King Hussein
would be prepared to come to the
negotiating table with sufficient
preparation and with a govern-
ment prepared to come forward

Carlson, a former member of the
American Nazi Party and a self-
proclaimed white supremacist
leader, was trounced in the
special Republican Congressional
primary in Michigan's Fourth
District, according to unofficial
He received only 701 votes of
about 47,000 votes cast, running
fifth in a field of seven candidates
who were seeking the seat
vacated by David Stockman,
President Reagan's director of
the Office of Management and
Carlson won the Republican
nomination for Congress in
Michigan's 15th District last Au-
gust when he gathered 53,570
votes, 56 percent of the total
vote. He was defeated last
November when he received only
32 percent of the vote.
by Mark Siljander, a Michigan
State Representative, who
received 18,055 votes. Siljander
will run in a special election
against John Rodebufh, who won
the Democratic nomination with
1,974 votes. The Fourth District
is in southern Michigan and is
conservative. It has elected Re-
publican Congressmen since
1932. The 15th district includes
Detroit suburbs.
When Carlson won the Re-
publican nomination in August,
Republican officials expressed
dismay and when he received 32
percent of the vote in November
GOP officials attrituted it to the
Reagan landslide victory. At that
time Carlson lost to William
Ford, the Democratic nominee,
who received 68 percent of the
vote. Carlson reportedly had been
a member of the Ku Klux Klan,
the National States Rights
Party, the John Birch Society
and the American Independent
Party before joining the Ameri-
can Nazi Party.

PLO Office In El Arish Called Violation
Minister Menachem Begin
charged that the recent upsurge
of terrorist acts in the Gaza
region was related to the activi-
ties of the Palestine Liberation
Organization's office in El Arish
in northern Sinai. He said Israel
took a very serious view of this
development and has lodged a
formal protest with the Israeli-
Egyptian joint military com-
mittee. El Arish was the first
Sinai Territory returned to Egypt
under terms of the peace treaty. ,
The issue was raised in the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee by Yosef
Rom of Likud, Yehuda Ben-Meir
of the National Religious Party,
and Binyamin Halevy of the
Democratic Movement. They
contended that Egypt was
violating the peace treaty by
allowing the PLO to establish it-
self in El Arish and operate in the
Gaza Strip.

designation of a candidate for

"Christian businessman."
David Lehrer, Western States
Counsel of the ADL, questioned
the legality of the ballot designa-
tion of Robert Fischer, Jr., a can-
didate for Mayor, in a letter to
City Clerk Rex Layton. Lehrer
advised Layton that the Califor-
nia State Elections Code expli-
citly forbids a ballot designation
which "uses a word or words re-
ferring to a racial, religious, or
ethnic group."
Lehrer advised Layton that
such designations were banned
by the State Legislature because
they imply "that the religious
affiliation of candidates is
somehow relevant to their com-
petency for public office, a notion
that should have been discarded
long ago."

' Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
I "And if her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take two
| turtledoves, or two young pigeons" (Lev. 12.8).
TAZRIA Cleanliness and uncleanlineas are further defined, I
| here in relation to childbirth and leprosy. "If a woman be deli- E
; vered, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven:
j days, And she shall continue in the blood of purification |
; three and thirty days But if she bear a maid-child, then she I
; shall be unclean two weeks and she shall continute in the:
blood of purification threescore and six days. And when the days i
| of her purification are fulfilled she shall bring a lamb of the
| first year for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle- j
; dove, for a sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting, j
1 unto the priest" (Leviticus 12.2-6). Suspected lepers are to be j
j brought to the priest, who quarantines the case for seven days, j
A careful description of the varieties of leprosy is followed by j
rules for the leper's identification and isolation. "And the leper j
in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and the hair of j
his head shall go loose, and he shall cover his upper lip, and shall I
cry: "Unclean, unclean,' All the days wherein the plague is in j
him he shall be unclean; he is unclean; he shall dwell alone; [
without the camp shall his dwelling be" (Leviticus 13.45-46).
