Sam Cohen Who?
Unknown Father of KTeutron
London Chronicle Syndicate
Cohen is sipping his lunchtime
martini at a Los Angeles beach-
front restaurant, watching the
vachts gliding across the sun-
flecked watera of the Pacific
Cohen is a friendly, relaxed
man, who likea to pepper his con-
versation with anecdotea. He
ruminates on the meaning of hia
Jewish identity and chata about
the lives of his father and grand-
father in the East End of London.
He talks easily about hia work,
which, for 38 of his 60 years, has
been developing nuclear weapons
and analysing their effects.
More precisely, Cohen is the
"father of the neutron bomb,"
according to the opinion of hia
fellow weapon experts and by hia
own quiet concurrence. He thua
shares the paternity of Ameria's
nuclear arsenal with the late J.
Robert Oppenheimer, key
developer of the atomic bomb,
and Edward Teller, the progeni-
tor of the hydrogen bomb.
THERE IS an obvious point of
difference between Cohen and his
two fellow-physicists. While
heated pubUc controversies and
intense media attention, fueled
by their own personalities, raised

NEW YORK The president

"Thus, when the Saudis raised
the price of their oil by $2 per

that, the Administration was

would have been devastating.

(JTA) A four-man
private study group that
includes Philip Klutznic'.-., a
prominent American Jew-
ish leader, and former
Assistant Secretary of
State Harold Saunders, has
warned the Reagan Ad-
ministration that hopes for
a negotiated peace in the
Middle East "are fading"
and urged the U.S. to
broaden and intensify its
role as an impartial media-
tor in that region.
The report, released by the
Seven Springs Center of Mt.
Kisco, N.Y., an organization spe-
cializing in scholarly studies,
stressed that Palestinian national
aspirations, including the desire
for an independent state, "must
be fairly faced and dealt with in
negotiations in ways consistent
with the rights and security of
their neighbors or the prospect
for peace will be radically di-
THE REPORT also stated
that "no peace will be possible
without the Palestine Liberation
Organization being involved in
the process." Its conclusions
were based on a visit to the
Middle East last summer by the
four co-authors. In addition to
Klutznick and Saunders, they are
Merle Thorpe Jr., president of the
Foundation for Middle Eaat
Peace; and John Greene Jr.,
president of the Seven Springs
According to their report,
Philip Klutznick
"Hopes for a negotiated peace are
fading just at a moment when ac-
ceptance of Palestinian national
identity in the Arab world and
growing Arab willingness to ac-
cept the Israeli state have created
the best possibility of an Arab-
Palestinian-Israeli negotiation
since Israel was established."

Rape Victims Encouraged
To Report to Police
JERUSALEM (JTA) The police department
has launched a new campaign to encourage victims of rape
and other sex offenses to report these crimes to the
DEPUTY POLICE Commissioner Meir Kaplan of
the Criminal Identification Department told a press
conference here that the police are cooperating with hos-
pitals treating victims of sex offenses. He said police have
developed a special kit supplied to doctors in 15 hospitals
around the country for the collection of physical evidence
of a sex offense.
Kaplan \ said there were no statistics to prove an
increase in sex crimes, but police are determined to im-
prove methods of tracking and apprehending sex of-
fenders with the assistance of victims.

To Shun Boycott Listing
WASHINGTON (JTAl Bechtel Corp.. the
giant engineering and construction company, was
required by the Supreme Court to honor an agreement
that it not boycott firms blacklisted by Arab countries be-
cause the firms do business with Israel.
THE SUPREME COURT refused to review an ap-
peal by Bechtel Corp. which claimed that it did not have
to abide by a consent decree agreed to by the company
and the Justice Department in 1977. According to Bech-
tel. before the decree was signed the Justice Department
modified the decree, changing its meaning.
Five years ago. the Justice Department accused
Bechtel of violating anti-trust laws by refusing to deal
with American companies blacklisted by .Arab nations for
doing business with Israel. The Justice Department also
said Bechtel refused to deal with blacklisted

Through the courtesy of Dr.
Robert L. Leslie of New York, the

display posters announcing past
exhibitions at the Tel Aviv

rupted the New York tour to
share a sample with us because of
his friendship with Tampa's Dr.

New Writing Program at Hillel
A new writing program was
started at the Hillel School this
year, under the direction of
Language Arts teacher, Ste-
phanie Tyree. The class works
like this: the students am
assigned a composition every
week, then their rough drafts are
checked by Mrs. Tyros. Follow-
ing this, the students prepare a
"good" copy which is given to
the school's theme reader, Mrs.
Barbara Gonzalee. Mrs. Gonzalse
spends every Friday at Hillel,
meeting with the students on an
individual conference basis and
sometimes in small groups, to go
over the compositions from the
week before suggesting
corrections and changes.
Outstanding themes are read
before the class and posted
around the room. Some are pub-
lished in the school newspaper
and others will be printed in a
literary journal in the Spring.
Barbara Go males helps sixth
grader Darryl Baker during an
individual conference.
Mrs. Tyree, who was involved
in a similar program in Pennsyl-
vania for six years, says that this
type of program works well. It
gives the students constant rein-
forcement, individual attention
and a lot of practice in various
writing skills.
We wish to thank all members of the community and
parents of Hillel School who, by purchasing tickets, so
generously supported our cause and made the Qift of
Gold Benefit a huge success. Thank you from the bot-
tom of our hearts. .. ,

A Good Time to Give
We can think of no two other causes in the field
of Jewish philanthropy that deserve our year-end
consideration more than the Combined Jewish Ap-
peal of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. And
State of Israel Bonds. In fact, neither of these justly
deserves to be thought of in the sort of distracted
way that comes from a concern for end-of-the-year
Both philanthropies are in a class by themselves.
Both deserve our support, even if it hurts. Both de-
mand our total concentration barring other consi-
derations. Both are central to the survival of a be-
leaguered Israel which, at year's end, faces an uncer-
tain future for peace in the Middle East despite
another concession in the form of her final with-
drawal from the Sinai next April.
As the year 1981 comes to a close, let us ask our-
selves: Have we pledged? If we have, did we pay up?
If only partly, why not make good on the pledge be-
fore New Year's Eve? If we have not pledged, why
not do so now? Or: perhaps we'd like to give or buy
What CJA Gifts Accomplish
The Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel Emergency
Fund helps Israel through its massive contributions
to the United Jewish Appeal and in a variety of other
ways, as well: through ancillary programs involving
immigration to Israel, support for health and educa-
tion there; and through assistance to services for
youth in technical and vocational disciplines, the
aged and so many other facets of the philanthropic
process that they are simply too numerous to
mention here.
But your CJA-IEF gift is also critical to a broad
panoply of organizational and professional activities
across the United States that contribute to the wel-
fare of the American Jewish community in totality.
And finally, your gift works in your behalf right here
in South Florida, assisting the funding needs of a
distinguished list of affiliate agencies in Jewish edu-
cation, social services, health, welfare, aid to the
aged and many more.
Your CJA-IEF gift will give to others through-
out 1982, and they will be grateful for it. In theisame
way, your CJA-IEF gift will be a year-long gift to
you,- You will be receiving, throughout 1982,the
comfort that comes from knowing you have helped
those in need.
Israel Bonds Investment
Buying Israel Bonds is not rightly philan-
thropy. Your purchase of Israel Bonds yields in-
terest. Still, you come away feeling that you have
made a critically important contribution to Israel's
development needs. And to proving to others that
Israel has a solid foundation of financial backing
from American Jews and their friends now, more
than ever.
With the advent of shifting political tides as the
year 1981 comes to a close, there is deep concern in
the American Jewish community about the strains
on Israel's development budget. This has set the
scene for a receptive and productive cash effort.
A top-level campaign is on to convert all unpaid
Israel Bonds commitments into cash for Israel's de-
velopment needs before the magic New Year's Eve
deadline The Israel Bonds cash countdown was
actually targeted through mid-December.
But individuals can show their concerns in a
very practical way. They can convert their commit-
ments to purchase Israel Bonds into cash by extend-
ing the cash countdown 'til the very anticipatory
hours before Auld Lang Syne." They can invest in|
the Jewish State's future.

And Be Kind to Non-Orthodox Jews
- (JTA) A dean of a
Rabbinical seminary and
two leading Orthodox
rabbis warned "a rapidly

in its relationship with
Addressing more than 3,000
Orthodox Jews from this country
and abroad attending the three-
day 69th convention of Agudath
Israel of America here, Rabbi A.
Henoch Leibowitz. dean of the
Chofetz Chaim Rabbinical
Seminary in Queens, N.Y., called
on Orthodox Jews to "attract
unaffiliated Jews by setting an
example of superior moral stand-
"to address our alienated
brethren as our equals rather
than talking down to them." At
the same time, Leibowitz called
on Orthodox Jews to "perfect
their own religious observance
before reaching out to others
not as an act of self-centeredness,
but as a means of being worthy of
helping others."
The spiritual leaders of
Agudath Israel chapters called
on Orthodox Jews to re-examine
their observance of such religious
standards as kashruth and ethics
in business. Rabbi Moshe Heine-
man of the Agudath Israel in
Baltimore said that the Jewish
community "should be ap-
Elauded for its success in making
Dsher food so widely available,"
but he criticized those who
"make summary judgments
about the validity of kashruth
supervision without knowing the
Heineman also congratulated
rabbinical authorities in Israel for
cracking down against fraudulent
religious articles, such as tefillin
and mezuzos exported to this
RABBI NISSON Alpert of the
Agudath Israel of Far Rockaway,
N.Y., condemned the "abuse of
specific religious laws pertaining
to business ethics." He added:
"We cannot accept that Jewish
businessmen should conduct
their business in an atmosphere
where a word is not a word and a
promise is not a promise.
At s session marking the 60th
anniversary of Agudath Israel of
America, a leader of the organiza-
tion's Council of Torah Sages and
the president of the organization
agreed that Orthodoxy's goal

Schindler Says Jews
Should Reject Timidity
In Anti-Semitism Battle
Alexander Schindler, president of
the Union of American Hebrew
Congregation, says American
Jews should "reject the council of
timidity and never hesitate to
state our views and vote our con-
sciences," even it if means stir-
ring "the demons of enti-
Semitism" raised during the re-
cent debate over the sale of
AW ACS planes and other weap-
onry to Saudi Arabia.
In a Sabbath sermon, prepared
for delivery at the UAHC's 56th
biennial assembly, Schindler
asserted: "The strategy of subtly
threatening Jews with a backlash
if they don't keep their mouths
shut is part of a larger pattern of
rising anti-Semitism in the Unit-
ed States and the world. Yet, to
knuckle under the hatamongers
out of fear of what they might do
is to give them the victory they
seek and they will come back
for more, like any blackmailers."
IN HIS message to the UAHC
convention, the Reform leader
described a meeting with Presi-
dent Reagan in the White House
last week where the President
"took a great deal of time to
assure me and other members of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations that he was not anti-
Semitic. I believe the President,"
Schindler states.
"But sJl Americans not
just Jewish Americans are in
trouble when the President of the
United States has to do that. He
must do it," Schindler said,
"because anti-Semitism is alive
and ticking in this land."
He continued: "The number of
reported incidents mounts daily.
Synagogues are defaced, ceme-
teries desecrated, religious
schools vandalized, slanderous
leaflets distributed. And I am
convinced the number of attacks
Blum Meets Tales tine Question'
Head On in United Nation Debate
(JTA) Israeli Ambassa-
dor Yehuda Blum said, in
remarks prepared for
,delivery to the General As-
sembly, that the Camp Da-
vid framework is "the only
practical way to progress
towards a comprehensive
solution of the Arab-Israel
conflict, in all its aspects,
including the question of
the Palestinian Arabs.''
Blum, who was scheduled to
address the Assembly in its de-
bate on the "Question of Pales-
tine," said the Camp David
framework "invites the Paiestin-

Samaria and the Gaza District to
play an active role in shaping
their future, by calling on them to
participate not only in the cur-
rent negotiations, but also in the
negotiations which will determine
the final status of the areas they
live in, as well as in the eventual
negotiations on a peace treaty
between Israel and Jordan, in
which the delimitation of
boundaries between the two
countries will be agreed."
THE ISRAELI envoy claimed
that the autonomy plan "is the
first practical proposal to be
advanced to provide a dignified
solution for the needs of the Arab
population of those areas.''
Blum said that the Pales-
tinians in the West Bank and the
Gaza Strip who are prepared to
live in peace with Israel "have
been steadily terrorized and in-
timidated by the PLO which has
been conducting, without letup, a
campaign of political assassi-
nation against them."
on Jaws and Jewish institutions
is greater than the number .
ported. Too many Jews dismi
such incidents as pranks or how
that, if ignored, they wia-en*
how go away."
Schindler insists that "Jew, ^
America must never fear to
arouse the public against the
hatemongers because the over-
whelming majority of A merictu
will stand at our side against
bigotry and hate and for the
American deal."
According to the UAHC
leader, "Jews do not have to
wage this struggle alone. Ween
reach out to form coalition of de-
cency with moderate Christian
leaders, with civic leaden, with
Blacks and labor and the liberals
and with conservatives, too -
true conservatives who are
pledged to the preservation of
American values, not the riders
of the Trojan Horse.''
Schindler pointed out that
"our traditional alliances held up
during the recent AWACS battle.
It was led by true and tested
friends the Kennedys, the
Cranstons, the Packwoods.
Labor was most supportive and
16 of 17 Blacks voted against the
AWACS sale, as did all the Hit-
panics in the House."
IN CONTRAST, Schindler ob-
served, "the Moral Majority did
not do nearly so well by us. Its
leader, Rev. Jerry Falwell, did
sign an anti-AWACS advertise-
ment. That was all no mail, no
telephone calls, no sermons to
support its public position. In
fact, the higher the Moral Major-
ity rating of a legislator the more
likely he was to approve the inns
sale to Saudi Arabia."
On the proposal in Israels
Knesset to amend the Law of Re-
turn, Schindler called for the
"collective voice of American
Jewry" to be beard in opposition.
Describing the proposal by the
Agudat Party in Israel u
"wantonly destructive of Jewish
unity," Schindler declared:
"How can any Jewish leader,
after Auschwitz, permit the insti-
tution of a 'selection process' at
Jerusalem's gates?" He added:
"We will not accept a secondary
status in Jewish life. We refuse to
be beggars at Jerusalem's gates.
We mean to fight for our full and
equal rights as Jews."

Reagan 'Infatuated' With Saudis

which contradicts Camp David in
gvery respect. Yet the President
and Secretary of State, who insist
they love Israel and stand by
Camp David, welcomed the pro-
posal and found 'positive ele-
ments' in it.
"If the Reagan Administration
believes Saudi Arabia is a mod-
erate, if the White House believes
that raising oil prices really
makes oil cheaper, it is no
surprise that the President and
his advisers should persuade
themselves that a plan which
contradicts Camp David some-
how is another version of it.
"The Fahd plan is supposedly
a breakthrough because it affirms
'the right of all countries of the
region to live in peace.' But the
proposal does not recognize the
State of Israel, nor do the Saudis
call for negotiation as Camp
David does. Indeed, Israel is not
a 'country' at all as far as the
Saudis are concerned. It is an
illegal Zionist entity' which must
one day be replaced by a
Palestinian state.
"On this very point former
Prime Minister Rabin, on the
ABC-TV Nightline show the
night of the AW ACS vote, en-
gaged the Saudi Ambassador to
the United States in debate. (It
was, of course, on a split screen.

"Mr. Rabin asked the Saudi
Ambassador whether his country
was prepared to sign a peace with
Israel. No one who saw the show
will ever forget how the Saudi
diplomat sought to squirm his
way out of answering the ques-
tion. And the more he squirmed,
the more his answer was
revealed: Saudi Arabia does not
want to negotiate with Israel and
has no intention of making peace
with Israel.
"SOME DAY, we all pray, the
Arab world and the richest Arabs
of all the royal family that
holds sway in Saudi Arabia
will change their minds and ac-
knowledge the proper and right-
ful place of a Jewish state in the
Middle East. That day must

mands for arms to attack Israel.

State Department is afraid to
criticize and reject Arab military,
political and economic demands
that damage the cause of peace. It
will not come as long as our
government gives encourage-

the foundations of peace for
which Israel has made such sacri-
fices and such huge concessions.
It will not come as long as Presi-
dent Reagan fears to call the PLO

terrorists, killers of innocent
women and children.
"And it will not come until the
United States insists that coun-

the United States must behave in
such a way as to deserve that
protection by acting in concert
with American policy, not
against it; by endorsing Ameri-
can strategy, not blocking it; by

"Within the past few weeks,
the slow drift toward Saudi Ara-

Cheysson Again Demands Direct
Peace Talks With Palestinians
PARIS (JTA) Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson has
called for direct talks between all
those concerned by the Middle
East crisis, "including by tr.ose
who represent" the Palestinian
In an interview with Le
Monde, Cheysson said: "There
will be no peace in the area (the
Middle East) as long as the
rights of all nations are not
recognized. Who can imagine
that the Palestinian people will
ever live in peace as long as it
does not have a state of its own?"
CHEYSSON, who was sched-
uled to arrive for a two-day offi-
cial visit to Israel this week,
brushed off Israeli Premier
Menachem Begins accusations
that he is "no friend of Israel."
The Minister said, "If I would
not consider myself a friend of Is-
rael, I would not have remained
French Foreign Minister for even
24 hours longer." Begin, in a tele-
vision interview last week,
charged that Cheysson "is no
friend of ours." He also said he
would "question him" during the
trip on some of his recent dec-
Cheysson retored: "I, in turn
am curious about the answers he
will give to my questions, if he
will let me ask." He stressed that
he is a friend of Israel but be-
lieves that Israel's future rests
"in obtaining peace and in fin-
ding its place within the region."

Japanese Envoy Vows Arafat's

Japan's Ambassador to the

World Jewish Congress
that, in the aftermath of
the visit to Tokyo by Pales-

Prime Minister and Foreign
Minister "strongly urged that
the PLO recognize Israel's right
to exist and emphasized the need
to settle any problems by con-
ducting talks in a peaceful man-
ner without recourse to the threat
or use of military force." At these
meetings, according to Nisibori,

more than two hours.
ARAFAT'S VISIT to Japan in
October was raised aa a principal
matter of concern. Nisibori said
that the invitation for the visit
was extended not by the govern-

Women's Day Huge Success
The Women's Division of the

News in Brief
Jacobson Elected to JNF Presidency
ByJTA Wirt Services
NEW YORK Charlotte Ja-
cobson, a leading American
Zionist, has been elected presi-
dent of the Jewish National
Fund, succeeding Rabbi William
Berkowitz. She is the first woman
to head the 80-year-old Zionist
afforestation and land develop-
ment agency. Prior to her election
by the JNF Board of Directors at
its biennial meeting here, Mrs.
Jacobson was chairman of the
World Zionist Organization-
American section. Her two-year
term in office as JNF leader
begins immediately.
A native of New York City,
Mrs. Jacobson has been active in
Zionist activities for more than
30 years in various poets in
numerous organizations. In Had-
assah, she was its national vice
president and national treasurer
before serving as president from
1964 to 1968. She served as chair-
man of the Medical Building and
Development Campaign until
1976 and was responsible for the
rebuilding of the Hadassah
Hospital on Mt. Scopus after the
Six-Day War.
Menachem Begin transferred the
full powers and authority of his
office to Deputy Premier Simcha
Ehrlich last week, three days
after he was hospitalized for a
broken hip, it was disclosed in a
lengthy letter the Premier dic-
tated to Haaretz columnist Yoel
Marcus published in that news-

Liberal Party wing, chaired to-
day's Cabinet meeting. Accord-
ing to officials he remains in

The unusual 3,000-word letter
Begin dictated from his bed in
Hadassah Hospital described in
detail how his hip joint was frac-
tured when he fell in his bath-
room and the subsequent surgery
and other treatment. He said he
transferred his authority to Ehr-
lich because he was in too much
pain to exercise his duties.
Peres, chairman of Israel's op-
position Labor Party, said he told
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig Monday that Israel does
not want to "harass" U.S.
relations with Saudi Arabia but
wants to be assured that they will
not be at the expense of U.S. re-
lations with Israel.
Peres told reporters after a
more than 30-minute meeting
with Haig that he also stressed
that the U.S.-Saudi relationship
should contribute toward peace
in the Middle East. Before
coming to the State Department,
Peres met with Vice President
George Bush.
PARIS President Mobutu
Sese Seko of Zair said here that
all obstacles for the resumption
of diplomatic relations with Isra-
el have been lifted. Mobutu, who
had earlier conferred with French
President Francois Mitterrand,
said Zair will first consult,

Neo-Nazi Guilty
Klux Klansmen and a neo-Nazi
were found guilty by a federal
grand jury of plotting to blow up
a synagogue, a television trans-
mission tower and Jewish owned
businesses in Nashville, Tenn.
The jury deliberated eight
hours before convicting Gladys
Girgenti, 50 years old, and Bobby
Joe Norton, 32, both members of
the Confederate Vigilantes of the
Ku Klux Klan, and William
Foutch, 48, a member of the
American Nazi Party.
Girgenti and Norton were
found guilty of transporting ex-
plosives and two counts of con-
spiracy and Foutch was found
guilty on two counts of con-

cated in what prosecutors des-
cribed as a "bizarre" scheme mo-
tivated by hatred and bigotry.

NEW YORK A leading Re-
publican Congressman from New
York said here that "as a Chris-
tian, I'm glad Jerusalem is in the
hands of Israel. There is no other
nation on earth I would entrust
Jerusalem to more than Israel."
In his address to some 500 peo-
ple attending the Zionist Organi-
zation of America's Brandeis
Award Banquet at the New York
Hilton, Rep. Jack Kemp also
called for the immediate
resumption of the Camp David
negotiations, calling them
"Camp David II," and said he
would request that President
Reagan appoint Sol Linowitz,
former special U.S. representa-
tive to the Middle East during
the Carter Administration, to get
the talks going again between
Israel and Egypt.
VIENNA An Israeli editor
and a Palestinian author both
maintained here that there is a
rising tide of opinion in Israel and
among diaspora Jewry favoring a
dialogue between Israelis and
Palestinians, including the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
That view and the belief that a
just solution of the Palestinian
problem is crucial to Middle East
peace, was expressed by Simcha
Flapan, editor of New Outlook
Magazine, published in Israel,
and Raymonda Tawil, a Palestin-
ian feminist and journalist, in
separate interviews with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Both were awarded prizes for
human rights activities by the
Bruno Kreisky Foundation.
NEW YORK The State of
Israel "considers alcoholism
among its Jewish inhabitants
serious enough to warrant an
alcohol treatment program," two
experts have reported in a sum-
mary on alcoholism among Jews
issued by the Beth Israel Medical
Center of New York.
The summary was prepared by
Dr. Stephen Levy, director of the
Beth Israel alcohol treatment
program, and Beulah Rosen- as-
ser, health education specialist
volunteer at the Beth Israel
According to the report,
"Among Jews in Israel, alcohol is
more prevalent in those coming
from Asia and Africa than in
those (Jews) originating in
Europe and America." They said,

Ghorbal Urges Israel to Change Attitude
Ashraf Ghorbal, Egypt's
Ambassador to the United
States, said here that Israel
,hould "change its atti-
tude, doing away with its
jmage as an unhappy occu-
pier and create a relaxed at-
niosphere that would in-
duce Palestinians to join
the autonomy talks."
. Ghorbal said that "deepite
three decades of fears, doubts
and misconceptions, Egypt can
fill the role of bridge between Is-
rtel and the Palestinians." He
also urged that the ceasefire
(cross the Israel-Lebanon border
be expanded into a peace treaty
"as the first step toward mutual
recognition by Israelis and
dor's remarks were part of an ad-
dress to 4.000 delegates attend-
fagt the Union of American
Hebrew Congregation 66th bien-
nW conv^n he,* 0horbiJ
*"?"? poshumous award
from tb UAHC to the
EgypUan President Anwar
Ghorbal called Sadat a "leader
of great vision" and said Sadat's
successor. President Hosni
Mubarak, is a "man in Sadat's
image" who ia committed to
strengthening relations with Is-
rael while at the same time ful-
filling the commitments of the
Camp David agreements.
Meanwhile, Samuel Lewis,
U.S. Ambassador to Israel,
making a rare appearance before
an American Jewish audience,
told the UAHC convention that
the "threat of war in the Middle
East has receded" and that "the
U.S. and Israel now enjoy an
Draft to Tighten Laws Against
Neo-Nazis Completed by Justice
BONN (JTA) Draft
legislation to tighten laws
against neo-Nazi activities has
been completed by Justice Min-
ister Juergen Schmude and sent
to all state governments in the
Federal Republic and to various
ministries and major social or-
ganizations for review. The mea-
sures will be submitted to the
Cabinet next April.
They, would empower state
prosecutors to bring to trial any
person who denies publicly that
the Holocaust occurred or that
the Nazis committed genocide. It
would also ban the import and
distribution of Nazi emblems and
other propaganda material in
West Germany.
THE NEED to dose loopholes
in existing anti-Nazi laws was
stressed in a statement by Sch-
mude released Nov. 8 by the
press service of the ruling Social
Democratic Party (SPD).
The release coincided with
charges bv Heinz Galinski, chair-
man of the Jewish community in
West Berlin, that the Federal
authorities were not taking suffi-
cient measures to combat neo-
Nazi activity.
The draft bill does not include
s ban on the distribution and sale
of Nazi books and records origi-
nating in Germany, such as Hit-
ler's "Mein Kampf." The SPD
wanted such a ban but dropped it
under pressure from its junior
coalition partner, the Free Demo-
cratic Party (FDP) and various
lobbying groups.
open, defacto relationship aa
symbolized by the signing of the
memorandum of understanding"
last weak by U.S. Defense Sec-
retary Caspar Weinberger and
Israeli Defense Minister Ariel
LEWIS ADDED that Israel
was "more powerful then any
time in her history thanks to the
help of the United States." He
said the Camp David process was
the "only agreed upon solution to
the problem of the Palestinians."
While acknowledging past
differences because of "differing
roles, responsibilities, assess-
ments and expectations," Lewis
said, "There has been no erosion
in the deep historic, bipartisan
American commitment to Israel's
security and permanence. "
Also addressing the UAHC,
the central body of Reform Juda-
ism in the U.S., was Ephrsim
Evron, Israel's Ambassador to
the United States. In one of his
final appearances before retiring
as the Israeli envoy, Evron said
U.S.-Israel relations were even
closer today than they were three
years ago, when he assumed his
pst. He predicted that "this
closeness will continue."
Citing Israel's growth and de-
velopment, Evron said Israel's
security and the chances of peace
depend on four fundamental con-
siderations: the strength of Is-
rael's defense forces; Israel's
economic viability and social co-,
heaion; the commitment of world
Jewry to Israel's security; and
the special and unique relation-
ship between Israel and the U.S.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion

(Gen. 35.19-201.
V A YISHLAH Approaching the boundary of the land of Seir
where his brother Esau dwelt, Jacob prudently sent messengers
ahead to inform Esau of his coming and of his wealth. The mes-
sengers returned with the news that Esau was advancing toward
Jacob with 400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp into two
sections, so as not to lose all in the event of an attack. He sent
gifts to Esau and prayed God to save him from his brother.
Jacob crossed the stream of Jabbok with his camp. There, as he
stood alone, an angel approached and wrestled with turn. At the
end of the struggle, the angel declared: "Thy name shall be
called no more Jacob, but Israel: for thou hast striven with God
and with men, and hast prevailed" (Genesis 32.291. Thus en-
couraged, Jacob met Esau, whom he treated with the utmost
deference. Embracing, the two brothers kissed, wept, and were
reconciled. Jacob journeyed on to Shechem. There the rape of
Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, by the prince of that city, led to
the vengeful destruction of Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers.
Proceeding to Beth-el, Jacob kept the vow he had made to return
thither. On the way, Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last and
youngest son, Benjamin. But Rachel died in childbirth, and
Jacob buried her on the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lebem.

His general attitude was sum-

BUT THERE are some clues
to the predominant role of Jews
in the birth of the atomic age,
whose midwives were mostly
theoretical physicists.
"There has been a great pro-

to be Jewish," Cohen told the
university students. "Not ex-

The military asked Cohen to
look into the design of tactical
nuclear weapons as part of the
then evolving scenario for fight-
ing a limited nuclear war, most
probably in Southeast Asia.
AT ABOUT the same time,
opponents of nuclear testing were
focusing on the lingering effects
of radioactive fallout and calling
for the development of "clean fis-
sion (atomic) and fusion (hydro-
gen) bombs.
With both the tactical and
clean weapon problems in mind,
Cohen cakulated "on the back of
an envelope" that the answer lay
in a "device" that would drasti-
cally reduce the blast, heat and
radioactivity from existing
bombs in America's nuclear ar-
senal. Such a reduction would, in
turn, raise the proportion, or "en-
hance" the neutrons emitted.
Within a year, the "back of the
envelope" scribblings evolved
into Cohen's full blown "techni-
cal-military" conception of the
neutron bomb, but his paternity

Sharon Visited Africans
Before Going to U.S.
JERUSALEM (JTA) Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon visited several African countries before he flew to
Washington to sign the strategic cooperation agreement
with the U.S., it was disclosed here. Informed sources
have linked the two visits.
THEY SAID Israel's cooperation with several Afri-
can countries would increase, due partly at least to the
"new and enhanced standing" conferred on Israel by
entering a formal strategic relationship with the U.S.
The sources said it was "no coincidence" that Presi-
dent Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire spoke of the possibility of
resuming diplomatic ties with Israel when he was in
Washington last week. Mobutu said, however, that he
would not act until he saw how other African countries
treated the issue. Zaire broke relations with Israel after
the Yom Kippur War.

of Cohen's inheritance from his
ancestors. His grandfather,
Samuel emigrated from
Lithuania to London as a youth
and plied his trade as a black-
smith in the East End.
Grandfather Samuel's son,
Lazarus, was apprenticed to a
London cabinetmaker at the age
of 10, and worked as a carpenter
for the rest of his life. At the turn
of the century, the Cohen clan
picked up and took ship to New
York, where Lazaurs tried to get
a job as a carpenter.

high-paying jobs for skilled car-

1921 in Brooklyn. Two years
later, Lazarus and his wife, Jen-
nie, decided to settle in Los
Angeles, where he found work as
a carpenter in the burgeoning
film industry at the Warner Bros,
Young Samuel attended Holly-
wood High School and earned a
Bachelor of Science degree in
physics at the University of
California. Los Angeles (UCLA).
That, except for a few scattered
graduate courses a few years
later, ended his formal education,
making him somewhat of a rarity
in a profession which considers
the Ph D as the basic trade union
A few days after receiving his
university diploma in 1943, the
newly-minted physicist was in-
ducted into the U.S. Army,
launching him inadvertently on
his future life career.
WITHIN A few months, he
found himself in the New Mexico
desert, at a spot called Los
Alamos. He was now part of the
Manhattan Project, the then top-
secret project for the develop-
ment of the first atomic bombs.
Private Cohen was assigned to
a practically all-Jewish group of
scientists monitoring the proba-
ble efficiency of the bombs and he
was given the task of exploring
how neutrons might diffuse dur-
ing an atomic explosion.
The war over, Cohen joined the
Rand Corporation for what was
to be a 25-year stretch, first
working in radiological warfare.
He than switched his interest to
tactical nuclear weapons, includ-
ing nuclear warheads to be used
mainly on the battlefield, in con-
trast to the strategic bombs des-
tined to be dropped on enemy
cities. It was during this phase of
his work that he devised the neu-
tron bomb.
In 1976, he left the Rand Corp.
and has since been on the scienti-
fic staff of a small Los Angeles
research firm, specialising in nu-
clear weapon development and

Same StoriesDifferent Dates
HAIFA How long is a
quarter of a century? Expressed
that way, it sounds like a seg-
ment of history. To a young per-
son, 26 years can be a whole life-
time To people more advanced in
years it represents a span of time
which they can look back upon,
perhaps with mixed memories.
Israel's popular afternoon
newspaper, Maariv, has pub-
lished a volume reproducing its
front pages over a 30 year period.
Idly we turned the pages to read
the headlines of the closing
months of 1956, exactly 25 years
ago. Some were so familiar they
could have been written yester-
day. Others jogged memories of
stories which were once on the tip
of everyone's tongue. Still others
were only curiosa. Let's look at
some of those November-
December headlines of 1956.
"We Shell Not Evacuate the
Sinai." Israel's Foreign Minister
told the British Ambassador that
Israel would not leave the Sinai
Peninsula. Israel's troops reacted
strongly to the British proposal
that they leave the area occupied
following the Sinai Campaign
which took place in October,
when Britain and France also in-
vaded the Suez area.
"Increase in Flow of Soviet
Arms to Syria." British and
French sources revealed Soviet
efforts to gain control in Syria by
dispatching arms and technicians
to that country. Two ships a
week are arriving with Russian
technicians, and 20 planeloads
reached there recently.
"Flight of Jews From
Hungary." Following the entry
Opinion Poll Shows Most
Israelis Favor Sinai Force
public opinion poll published in
the Jerusalem Post says that
some 70 percent of the public
favors strategic cooperation with
the U.S.. and about 46 percent
would be in favor of Israeli sol-
diers fighting alongside Ameri-
can soldiers to keep the Soviets
out of the Middle East, even it it
involved defending Saudi Arabia.
ANSWERING IF they were
for or against strategic coop-
eration with the U.S., 70.6 per-
cent said yes, 24.3 percent said
no, and 4.3 percent were unde-
Those replying affirmatively
were then asked whether they
thought Israeli soldiers should
fight alongside Americans, to de-
fend Saudi Arabia against the
USSR if necessary, and 64.4 per-
cent said yes, with 32.9 percent
saying no and 2.7 percent un-
decided. Support for strategic co-
operation cut across all sections
of the public, of both sexes, all
ages and all ethnic backgrounds
and economic and social strata.
of Soviet troops into Hungary
there has been a mass flight of
Hungarians from the country, a-
mong them many Jews. Despite
tight border control thousands
manage to get out daily
"Don't Waste Electricity." A
small advertisement about an
innovation a sun heater
produced by the Miromit Co.
which assures an ample supply of
hot water without fuel.
"Egyptian Destroyer Joins Is-
rael Fleet." The Ibrahim El-
Awal, Egyptian war vessel which
had steamed into the outer
waters of Haifa, had sought to
shell the city, and had been cap-
tured by Israel torpedo boats, is
now undergoing refitting and will
join the Israel Navy under a new
"Britain Refuses to Sell Tanks
to Israel." Although an ally of
Israel in the three-nation attack
on Egypt, Great Britain now re-
fuses to sell Israel Centurion
tanks, and has cancelled Israel
orders for spare parts for planes
and other equipment previously
"Expulsion of Jews from
Egypt Begins." The first group
of 670 Jews expelled from Egypt
has been loaded on ships bound
for France and Italy. Those who
do not leave by the deadline may
be interned in camps.
"Convoy Goes up to Mount
Scopus." The Israel convoy to
Mount Scopus left from the city
of Jerusalem at 5:40 a.m., re-
mained in the enclave for two
hours, and returned. In both di-
rections it was protected by
heavily armed Jordanian troops,
to prevent any Arab attacks on
the vehicles.
"Confrontation Between
Poland and Russia Only a Family
Argument." Elections scheduled
in Poland have been postponed,
and Kruschev has agreed to re-
ceive the Pohsh leader, GomuJka.
Russian military authorities in-
sist that good relations must be
maintained with Poland since
that country contains the major
transport channels between
Russia and Germany, in case of
