time, representing a total increase of $1,162,000, over last year's
total campaign, a 100% increase.
The following action is now taking place:
All Hi-Rises will be solicited by Mar. 31st. Federation has
been averaging five to six solicitation meetings per week in
The Women's Division has held two luncheons and will have

the buildngs. There have been three solcitation meetings ach
In the buildings where solicitation events are prohibtited
because of by-laws, cocktail parties have been held in individual
apartments or events have been planned elsewhene.
he Women's Division has held two luncheons and will have
two more this week. One of the two luncheons was a "first" .

The Women's phona-thon, "Message For Life," which com-
menced last week, has also been most successful.
The problem now facing Federation is the research of
duplicate cards and phone numbers.
The next step in the campaign will be a Mail-A-Thon where-
by pledge cards plus a Seder table centerpiece will be sent to
ail those who have not yet made a campaign gift as of Apr. 1st
A Campaign-closing dinner-dance is being planned to be held
during the middle of May.
There is still approximately $100,00 outstanding from pros-
pects who gave $1,000 or more in 1973. (This is separate from
Hi-Rise prospects.)

By Special Report
NEW YORK The Anti-

has deplored the nationwide
American Broadcasting Company
telecast Saturday of "The Mer-

being put to a formula that would
provide for an independent

formula which would settle the

ments on this issue.
AS AN outcome of these

objection to the Palestinian par-

resume, probably in the spring.
The change in Jordanian policy
was outlined by the King in two
speeches early in February. The
King did not give up, of course,

his claim for any "liberated"
Palestinian territory, but from
now on he is going to follow a
new course vis a vis the Pales-
tinians of reconciliation and
recognition rather than dictation
and repression.
THERE ARE three new prin-

Moses Hornstein G>ntributes
8500,000 To Touro College
Moses Hornstein of Emerald
Hills, Hollywood, has initiated
the Touro College Endowment
Fund effort with a contribution
of $50,000, Dr. Bernard Lander,
president of the college, has an-
Mr. Hornstein is treasurer of
the Board of Trustees of the
four-year college of liberal arts
and sciences, hcadquai te: ed at 30
W. 44th St.. New York City.
Long active in educational and
Jewish philanthropies. Hornstein
believes the emergence of Touro
College is a particularly impor-
tant development in American-
Jewish life because it is the only
institution of higher learning
without an affiliation with a the-
ological school which stresses the
relevance of the Jewish heritage
to Western culture.
Now in its third year. Touro
enrolls 400 students in its various
programs. The School of Liberal
Arts and Sciences offers the
bachelor of arts and the bachelor
of science degree in 16 academic
disciplines In addition, the
Touro Department of Health Sci-
ences, in cooperation with Kings-
brook Jewish Medical Center,
Brooklyn, conducts a program
leading to a bachelor of science
in health sciences qualifying its
graduates for registration as
physician's associates.
Touro will open a School of
Law in September 1975. 'This
will be the first law school in
the United States to be organized
under-Jewish auspices. Since
Judaism is a way of life guided
by law, the organization of a law
school by members of the Jew-
ish community is most appro-
priate," Mr. .Hornstein noted.
Touro will establish a Research
Institute of Jewish Law as a com-
ponent of the law school.
The new law school is empow-
ered to confer the degrees of
Master of Law and Doctor of the
Science of Law, as well as Juris
Doctor, a distinction shared by
only a small number of law
schools in the country.
Hornstein is active in many
sectors of American and Jewish
life. He is president of the He-
brew Academy of Nassau, vice
president of American Friends of
The Hebrew University, treasur-
er of the Synagogue Council of
America, a member of the Jew-
ish Theological Seminary of New
York, and a trustee emeritus of
Hofstra University, Long Island.

ABC Was Thoughtless
We go along with the Anti-L B'rith and other organizations that are on record this week
as deploring the ABC-TV pioducticn oi Sir Laurence Olivi-
er's "Merchant of Venice.
This is one of those Shakespearean plays that never
sit well with Jew and non-Jew alike, because dramatically
its motives are mixed.
In the midst of a profound tragedy (Shylock's "punish-
ment" for his failure to accept his daughter Jessica's mar-
riage to a non- Jew) are comical-pastoral elements (the
popular Elizabethan by-play between Portia and Nerissa
and their lovers).
This enormous disparity in tone reaches its high point
with Shylock's classic "what is a Jew" speech set against
the satanic delight he experiences in the discovery that
through his bond (the pound of flesh), he will gain his re-
venge against Christian society.
High Price of Admission
During the past few years, American tourists in Lon-
don, attracted as by a magnet to Sir Laurence's production
of the "Merchant of Venice" at the National Theattre, re-
peatedly went away from the production with the feeling
that while they had seen a great performer, they paid for
this with their own pound of fleshpersonal humiliation of

Our Chips on Brezhnev
Secretary of State Kissinger is, in the eyes of many, the
man of the hour. But we remain less moved by his astonish-
ing "successes" than other observers.
Events over the weekend seem to suggest the validity
of our view:
Syria's decision to postpone her launching of with-
drawl talks in Washington;
The increased tempo of the fighting on the Golan
Failure of the Arab ministers first in Libya and
then in Vienna to lift the embargo on oil shipments to the
U.S. and the Netherlands without qualifications attached__
Kissinger's own requirement in the matter.
All of this makes lor a pattern of growing Arab belli-
gerency against Israel and the West at the same time
that the Soviet Union lends its encouragement to the pat-
tern maker.
As in the past, Moscow is not particularly interested in
war in the Middle East, especially when it can't count on
its Arab clients to win one.
But it is not particularly interested in peace, either.
So who's aheadDr. Kissinger or Leonid Brezhnev,
the Nixon administration's partner in detente?
As of now the chins are on Brezhnev.
No Double Standard
The Marco de Funis case involves reverse discrimina-
tion. De Funis has been denied admission to the law school
at the University of Washington, not because he's Jewish,
but because he is white and is therefore expected to per-
form on a higher academic level than Blacks and other
minority groups.
We go along with the briefs of the Anti-Defamation
League and the American Jewish Committee that what is
sauces for the goose is sauce for the aander.
Why should the University of Washington have a
double standard of academic expectation?
We would be saddened if the De Funis case widened
ever further the qrowing rift between the Jewish and Black
communities. But we can't help aqreeinq that if it is im-
proper to discriminate against a race that should mean
ANY race.
Academic Excellence at Issue
IT IS beside the point that
Marco de Funis, Jr., is Jew-
ish. Or even that he is white.
What is at stake is human ex-
De Funis is the center of a
controversy now before the
United States Supreme Court
HE IS a student at the Univer-
sity of Washington Law School
in Seattle but only because
Mr. Justice Douglas has ruled
that he be permitted to remain
there until the Supreme Court
decides the issues involved.
Briefly, the University of
Washington Law School refused
to accept him as a student.
Of the 1,601 applicants for the
150 places in the September,
ly?l ciass in which De Funis reg-
istered for examination and ma-
triculation, the highest grade was
! 81.
DE FUNKS scored 76.23. and
any white applicant who scored
below 74.5 wasn't even consid-
ered. That placed him near the
bottom of white eligibles, and in
the end. De Funis was rejected.
But of 37 Blacks. Spanish and
PhilippineAmericans who ap-
plied to the law school, only one
scored higher than De Funis'
76 23 yet they were ALL ad-
Further, of minority students
who scored below the 74.5 per-
cent that automatically barred
white students. 30 were admitted.
ON ITS face, this is a clear
case of reverse discrimination.
The Anti Defamation League
and the American Jewish Com-
mittee are arguing against the j
University of Washington's dou- \
ble admissions standard on the j
basis of briefs submitted by
Alexander If, Bickel (Yale Uni- [
versity) and Philip B. Kurland
(University of Chicago), both
distinguished constitutional law-'
yers. who believe that "if the
constitution prohibits exclusion
of Blacks ... it can not permit
the exclusion of whites on racial

was heady stuff. But today, it is
DOUBLE VS. single racial
standards are in the end a minor
issue in the De Funis case, which
has far more telling political, so-
cial and economic consequences.
What is really at issue is a
growing inclination on the part
of the nation and Its educationa:
institutions to establish varying
standards of excellence in pre-
requisites and expectations in
ACADEMIC performance that
may ultimately affect our health,
our security, our intelligence,
our morale as a people.
Yes, De Funis' whiteness has
victimized him. But behind hij
private agony is the real public
menace our increasing wil-
lingness to reduce standards of
excellence in order to demon-
strate that we are truly a demo-
cratic society.
IT WAS, the University of
Washingon administrators be-
lieved, very DEMOCRATIC of
them to accept students in the
74.5-and-below category because
they were not white and without
the presumption of privilege to
which a white applicant is sup-
posedly heir and of whom more
must therefore be expected.
And so while it is ttue that the
decision was made on racial
grounds, the effect on us as a so-
ciety will be on academic and
ultimately professional grounds.
WE WILL be treated by infe-
rior doctors, protected by infe-
rior lawyers, taught by inferior
There is a censoring mecha-
nism in us that does not permit
us to conceive of an inferior

very core of our primary concern

our death.
But politics, we foolishly be-
lieve, are not that central to our
survival. Politics have long since

the law-abiding, and makes a
mockery of the governing proc-
ess by candidates who are sancti-
monious today and greedy and
even felonious officials tomorrow.
AS FOR our bitter experience,
particularly on the lower levels
of education through the trials
of our children in the political
struggle over bussing and inte-
gration, we are repeatedly being
forced into a confrontation with
the inferior teacher.
Almost 20 years have passed
since the May, 1954 Supreme
Court ruling on the desegrega-
tion of public facilities a land-
mark in human relations that
eloquent, well intended, but
largely unskilled liberals have
perverted into the monster that
is the compulsory education
process today.
A whole new generation of
Americans of inferior education
have grown up since then. They
have been schooled in its igno-
rance, its inequities, and even its
frank incompetence.
THE MARCO de Funis case
relates directly to the crippling

cratic society intimidated into

It seems to ha;e started at Tallahassee, on the Florida State
campus, followed in a few days by the University of Florida
campus here, where I am writing this dispatch as from a war
IT HAS SPREAD with epidemic swiftness, streaking through
the South and Southwest and Middle West, reaching Alaska, and
is now moving toward the backwater area of New York.
It started furtively, a few streakers darting out. dodging cars,
staying clear of the cops and disappearing as silently as they
^ame. But it is gaining adherentsand some rowdiness.
Its practitioners do it now in clusters of the daring, even
cohorts of them. They sing, shout, dance, drink, ride motorcycles,
drop out by parachute.
THEY IGNORE or court the cops. Last week there was an
organized mass streaking here, whose numbers were variously
estimated as from 50 to 500.
And of course the girls have joined. There are coed streakers
now. or else they dance go-go on some dormitory roof to the re-
sounding cheers of their admirers. I haven't heard of any streak-
ing yet by faculty, deans, or college presidents, but all in good
There are some surface reasons for streaking, and some sub-
surface ones. Interviewed by the press, the professional psycholo-
gists and sociologists talk of past fadsgoldfish-eating, phone-
booth-crowding, flagpole-sitting. Certainly these are parallels, es-
pecially if you see streaking as primarily a case of exhibitionism.
BUT THERE IS MORE to it than that. I doubt whether it
would have been likely to take place before the 1960s. It is the
tail end of the "happenings" of the cultural revolution of the '60s
not fraught with some of the heavy meanings of that decade,
but with a meaning of its own.
Part of it is the element of danger and the humdrum. Danger
has largely been squeezed out of the life of most cammises, and
things are pretty routine. I don't speak of danger from the
campus cops, who have largely been genial about it, but the
vulnerability that comes from nakedness before your fellows.
STREAKING IS A way of bringing at least a slight margin
of danger back, or at least of bravado.
There is a gulf of distance, of course, between the activists
of the '60s who put career and sometimes life on the line for
their cause, and the streakers who only put their clothes on the
line, as it wereand perhaps their college records.
To put the contrast more starkly, at Kent State there were
corpses on the campus only four years ago; at the state universi-
ties today, happily, there are streakers on the campus.
Aadd the element of the hunger to do things together. Stu-
dents these days work hard. On the big campuses, many become
dormitory rats," cooped up with their studies.
IT MAKES THEn feel good to get out and at least watch a
streakingand the more watchers, the more streakers. They get
to meet other students in an atmosphere vaguely tinged with
sexuality, which replaces the solitary experience with some edge
of community.
Add the element of the hunger to do things together. Stu-
codes-and, incidentally, a challenge to stuffy authorities.
This isn t a great movement of social protest, but it does ex-
press the way students feel about unnecessary fetters in the so-
ciety. When the fetters can be cast off as easily as clothes can,
then you do it. And if you are still too shy, you cheer it.
ADD, FINALLY, the desire to simplify life, to cast away all
the extra accretions that have gathered around civilized living. It
is Thoreau s -Simplify, simplify," all over again.
th i?h ?hUral revolutionari of the '60s started communes on
he land to carry out this impulse. The fraternity students and
the codes of today strip and streak.

Union with trade benefits.
HE ALSO said he was "meet-

fred Schneider, an ABC exec-
utive, by Arnold Forster, ADL
associate director and general
counsel, after its representative-
had previewed the productioi

decided to televise it.
In his lettter, Forster pointed
out that the TV production "ne

ABC's judgment in contracting

Kissinger conceded that the
purpose of the Jackson-Mills-
Vanik legislation is not to pre-
vent Soviet-American trade or
prohibit all U.S. credit to the
USSR "but to assist those whose
wish to emigrate from the Soviet
Union has been frustrated."
NEVERTHELESS, he aded, if
the Jackson Amendment is
adopted it will "almost certainly
prove counterproductive," he
warned. "It will not enhance emi-
gration. It may stop it altogeth-
er." Kissinger acknowledged
some dissatisfaction with the
present Soviet emigration poli-
cies which he said "is not as
bright as we would like."
He charged that Soviet emigra-
tion policy "often seems arbitra-
ry" and noted that some 1,300 in-
dividuals are currently being de-
nied pei mission to leave for Is-

USSR has increased from a "spo-

relatively steady flow of some

In another reference to the So-
viet Union, Kissinger appeared to
soft-pedal Moscow's role in the
Yom Kippur War. When Sen.
William V. Roth (R., Del.) raised
suspicions about the Soviet gov-
ernment's intentions in that re-

Moscow was allied with the coun-

Children Need Messages Of
Hope From Western Youngsters
Americans read of Jewish ac-
tivists being harassed, arrested,
and mistr-eated in the Soviet
Union. We are aware of the
hardships encountered by those
adults who lose their jobs and
status after applying for exit to
Israel, and we are urged to send
money, packages, and letters on
their behalf.
By concentrating our efforts
on assistance to these people, we
sometimes forget their children,
especially the children of the Ot-
ic azniki.
The Otkazniki are the people
who have been categorically de-
nied permission to emigrate. Of-
ficially refused, time and again,
these present-day Maccabees re-
sist Soviet repression and persist
in their struggle. These heroes
have children who struggle along
with their parents. Being young
and with few defenses, perhaps
they nted our support even more.
The children need a message
of hopeful solidarity from West-
ern youngsters their own age.
They would be pleased to receive
letters, and packages (jeans and
jackets for example, new only)
to bri?hten their dull, seemingly
hopeless lives.

C-16 in age, live in Moscow,

About Adopt A Family
ADOPT A FAMILY is a person-ttH>eraon project, through
whit.. vv,u can provide a Soviet Jewish Family with moral and
some direct financial assistance. A Soviet Jew applying for an
exit visa faces one or more of the following consequences a
lengthy and complicated application Tmxtedure, an Indefinite
delay harassment from neighbors, co-workers, or the police, de-
motion or loss of job. The cost of a via* 900 rubles (roughly
$990) is prohibitive, particularly for a family of parents,
children, and perhaps aging grandparents. For others, survival
itself is a problem.
The United Jewish Appeal and Federations throughout the
United States are faced with meeting the monumental challenge
of absorption and resettlement of New Soviet Ohm in Israel.
U.J.A.. through the Jewish Agency, has assumed 100 per cent of
the costs. Although some money is made available for direct
aid to Jews still in the USSR, needs still exist, and through
Adopt A Family, your group can help fill them.
The Hollywood Florida Soviet Jewry Committee receives
names and addresses of Soviet Jews wishing contact with thle
West and in need of assistance. Names come primarily via new
Russian arrivals to Israel (who often bring with them the names
of friends and relatives sewn into their clothes) and also from
the committee's contacts within the USSR and with other So\M
Jewry groups in the United States. All are persons who have
given their names with the expressed desire for contact.
Your participation in Adopt A Family means that you will
establish and maintain contact with a given family or families
and provide them with assistance as necessary. The length of the
commitment will vartt depending on how quickly the family
gets their visas and leaves. Some families' visas are approved
rapidly; others wait months, years.
The Adopt A Family program is coordinated through the
JWF of Greater Hollywood, Florida Soviet Jewry Committee. If
you are an organization, you are asked to have your own
committee of people, or your friends to help if you are an
individual. You will be assisted with each step, but once com-
mitted, you are expected to follow through on the various means
of help to your adopted family.
For further information, phone the Federation office.
Kerbel Family
Reaches Israel
Robert Kerbel, executive director of Jewish Welfare Fede-
ration of Greater Hollywood, received good news this past week.
His cousin. Mikhail Kerbel. wife Adele and son, Leonid, arrived
safely in Israel.
It has been two years since the Kerbel family applied for
visas to emigrate to Israel. At that time, the local Kerbel fam-
ily was unaware that he had relatives remaining in Russia.
Once informed by the National Conference on Soviet Jewrv of
the possibility, he checked it out with an uncle who said that
in 1904. when his Grandfather Kerbel had left Kharkov, one
brother had remained behind.
This was the family of the brother
Bob Kerbel started writing letters, sending packages and
making phone calls. On March 2. their visas were granted and
the family arrived in Israel March 11.
The Hollywood Federation director said. "I can't help but
believe the Soviet Union responds to pressure. I suggest people
continue writing more than ever before."

KISSINGER made that state-
ment in his appearance before
the Senate Finance Committee
which was considering the Trade
Reform Bill.
"I won't start handing out the
Secretary's schedule," State De-
partment spokesman George
Vest declared.
But he said he (Vest) had
"verified the facts" of the Sec-
retary's testimony that he has
been meeting with "members"
of the Jewish community.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy, which asked Vest for the in-
formation, pointed out that there
are six-million Jews in America
who could be "members," but
Kissinger had said "leaders."
Vest responded that he had
"no objection to leaders" or "key
members" but he reiterated "we
stick by it" (the statement)
whether "leaders or members."
AFTER THE JTA reporter
noted that he was informed
neither the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry nor the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations
had met with Kissinger since last
October on the Jackson Amend
ment issue. Vest replied that
"the National Conference is not
the only organization.
"There are otfier organ izav
tions." Representatives of th*
NCSJ told JTA in Washington
that Kissinger's statement on his
meetings with Jewish leaders was
"misleading" and out of context.
ASKED whecner he had any
response regarding Sen. Henry
M. Jackson's assertion, following
Kissinger's testimony, that any
resolution of the dispute over the
amendment would require move-
ment by the Soviet Union in its
emigration policy. Vest said that
"the Secretary put himself in a
very precise position" that he
was "willing to be reasonable**
and was "hopeful."

have to agree on either minis-

involving senior military officers,
probably chiefs of staff.

What does Judaism have to say
about "exorcism?"
The practice and effects of

pirits from people whom these
spirits have taken possession of,
certainly has its echoes in Jewish
Talmudic literature, and espe
ially Kabballatic literature of the
nystics. contains extensive refer

a short version of the expression
"dibbuk "ruach ra'ah" (a cleavage
from an evil spirit). .The word
"dibbuk" thus means the act of a

At first it was thought that such

who had committed enormous sins
vnd who thus could not transmi-

spirits thus sought refuge in the

has ended in failure;
A clear-cut statement that

participation of Palestinian rep-
resentatives in Geneva. That is,
the King withdraws his previous
proposal that the Palestinians
could come to Geneva only as an
appendage to his own delegation;
Finally, a Jordanian official
exp'anation that Amman's right
to take part in the peace talks is
not n>.'essarily based on its claim
to the West Bank but rather on
its historic role in the fight
against Zionism and its geo-
graphic proximity to the conflict
IN OTHER words, the King
offers the PLO leaders a com-
promise arrangement to delay
decision over the political future
of the territories under discus-
sion in order to form a common
though not a unitedfront at
Geneva. It is as if the King sug-
gests to Arafat: First, let's get
the Israelis out, and then we can
fight it out between us.
The King stresses his offer for
a plebiscite under international
supervision to enable the local
population to choose his own
go\ernment: a federation with
Jordan, fully independent or
some sort of loose confederation.
As Hussein takes his steps
parallel moves are being made
by the PLO. A new working pa-
per is currently under discus-
sion within the organization.
It calls for modification of the
PLO platform by introducing for
the first time an interim target
the establishment of Palestin-
ian national authority in the ter-
ritories which may be evacuated.
This reform is widely interpreted
as a first step toward participa-
tion in Geneva.
HOWEVER IT seems that
Arafat and his colleagues still
would preler not to take a direct
part in any negotiations with Is-
rael. They are prepared, though,
to give their blessing to a Pales-
tinian delegation comprised of
West Bank and Gaza Strip not-
Such a solution suits the
Jordanians too for they have
close ties with these people. So
Hussein will discuss with Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat the
possibility of wide Arab backing
for such a delegation.
Several leading notables have
already been consulted about the
idea. Among them former chair-
man of the Joidanian Parliament
Hikmat el Masri of Nablus. and
the former Mayor of Gaza,
Rashad el Shawa. They refused,
however, to make any statement
of their own position before the
deal is settled by the Arab lead-
ers across the border.

Lady Logic
Liz Taylor And Me
All the ladies are talking about
the movie "Ash Wednesday."
Particularly ladies in their
forties and early fifties who have
been looking into the mirror and
finding a line they earned for
early financial struggle. A wrinkle
etched from a problem child. A
crevice resulting from years of
sun worship.
A total loosening of skin from
an accumulation of being lucky
enough to mature into those
years called forties and fifties.
Had I seen the movie in which
Elizabeth Taylor had everything
lifted but her toenails, I believe
I would have been too frighten-
ed to have had it done.
But it was two years ago when
the idea approached my head
and. fortunately, Liz was too busy
romping around Puerto Vallerta
with Richard to distract me.
The thought of plastic surgery
had never entered my mind until
one evening when I was having
cocktails with a party which in-
cluded a plastic surgeon and his
His practice was evidently
burgeoning with girls who had
become women and now wanted

That night I went home and
took a deep drag on the mirror.
I was definitely Rita Good-
man, a woman in her forties.
A woman whose life was carved
on her face like a granite statue
and sitting on a pedestal called
"every day."
But then, I had to look further.
Into the rear of the mirror
where my mind was located.
The psyche.
That is where a "facelift" real-
ly is at. In your head.
The "why would you do It" is
really where,it's at.
In the film. Elizabeth Taylor
selected the move as armor
against losing her husband to a
younger girl.
That was not my problem.
My husband and I had already
for divorce that year.
I'd been married for what ap-
peared to be all my life so an-
other marriage was not a con-

I couldn't afford the toll with

He approved the motive and we
set a date.
I remember being escorted to
the hospital that evening by my
only son.
When I was asked at Admis-
sions, "Your next of kin'.'," he
answered quickly, "Me. Her son."
He had never once questioned
my decision.
He just knew his mother in-
stinctively. He'd grown up with
her from an umbilical stage.
I lay in the hospital bed alone
that night, totally unafraid be-
cause "Ash Wednesday" was far
off. I waited for my doctor wha
was attending a Miami Dolphin
foMball game preparing his
nerves for my face and nock.
He was confident with his job.
I knew mine.
After the Dolphins won. he
dropped by to chat'casually and
suggest I don't worry.
I hadn't. Didn't. And wouldn't.
I didn't need the prescribed
sleeping pills because my motive

Kreisky Leads Socialist
Body at Meeting in Israel
were mixed feelings here over
the arrival of the Socialist Inter-
national delegation from Europe
headed by Austria's Chancellor
Bruno Kreisky last week.
The Socialist International is
still regarded as a major inter-
national forum where Israel's
voice is heard and which regards
Israel as an important member.
BUT THERE is no secret that
Israel has lost considerable sup-

ter criticism in Israel shortly be-
fore the Yom Kippur War when
he decided to shut down the
Jewish Agency's transit camp for
Soviet emigres at Schoenau Cas-
tle near Vienna and refused to
be moved by Premier Golda
Meir's personal plea to reverse
his decision.
HE HAS since made remarks
which many Israelis regard as
pro-Arab. The delegation he
heads was to visit Egypt and
Syria, as well as Israel, for the
stated purpose of studying the
Middle East situation at first-
hand to examine conditions for
a lasting peace.
Another announced aim was to
study conditions for economic
cooperation between the Arab
countries and Europe and be-

tion is to establish (legislate by
law) mediocrity (or worse) as
the democratic sumum bonum.
Mediocrity is realizable by all.
It is excellence reduced to a
thing, which all men may share
in the drab security that there is
no one better than they are.
In the mediocracy of the medi-
ocre, we are free to be victimized
by the power of incompetence.
It is to this democratic horror

THE NEARLY total depend-
ce of Europe and Japan on

asized by the events since Oc-

ars, is now undeniable.
And Soviet interest in estab-
shing primacy over the oil-
oducing states of the Gulf, so
ident in Russian policy toward
ran in the past and Iraq at
esent, is a matter of utmost
ncern to our national security.
In the mid-1950's Soviet strat-
Igy in the Middle East, which
lad for centuries focused on
Persia with only occasional
forays beyond into Egypt (as in
1788 when Catherine the Great
kffered military assistance to the

principal objective
Bey of Egypt), took on a "leap-
frogging" quality founded on ef-
forts to exploit the differences
between Arabs and Israelis. Di-
recting its attention to Egypt and
Syria, the Soviets hoped to gain
a position in the Middle East that
would have encircled Iran, Saudi
Arabia and the small sheikdoms
skirting the Indian Ocean.
MORE RECENTLY, Soviet pol-
icy has focused on Iraq, on Iran's
neighbors to the North and East
and on Smolia. Yemen and
Aden on the Red Sea and the
Gulf of Aden. In this strategy
the Suez Canal occupies a central
The principal, and rapidly
growing, Soviet military fleet is
deployed in the Black Sea where
it is supported by the industrial
and military resources of Euro-
pean Russia.
The reopening of the Suez
Canalunless it is demilitarized
will substantially reduce the
transit time and distance that the
Black Sea Fleet must cover for
deployment or operations in the
Persian Gulfnot by a few per-
centage points, not by a few
miles, but by over 70 per cent,
from 11,500 down to 3,200 nauti-
cal miles.
THE PRINCIPAL effect of this
reduction in time and distance is
this: with the Canal in operation
the Soviet Black Sea Fleet can
be quickly sent into the Persian
Gulf where it would rapidly out-
number anything that we could
deploy in that vital region.
The handling capacity of the
Canal is on the order of 50 to 60
ships per day. In the event of a
crisis in the Gulfand it is not
difficult to imagine such conflicts
as the recurring exchange be-
tween Iran and Iraq reaching
crisis proportionsthe very con-
siderable navy that the Soviet
Union keeps on station in the
Mediterranean could be quickl>
redeployed in the Gulf, while the
Black Sea Fleet could be sent
south into the Mediterranean.
MOREOVER, recent develop-
ments in Somalia clearly suggest
that the Soviets are likely to be
in a position to provide air cover
from operating bases at the
southern access of the Canal.
We, for our part cannot ex-
pect to make com parable use of
the Canal. The sailing distance
from the east coast of the United
States to the Persian Gulf, now
in excess of 11,000 nautical miles
would only be reduced to 8,000

security. The tenuous stability

Suez Canal could turn out to be
a stimulus to an arms race in
that pivotal ocean.
I believe that we have a pro
pitious opportunity to stop an
arms race in the Indian Ocean
before it starts; and the place to
begin is at the gateway to the
region, at Port Said.
To accomplish this I believe
that the administration should
press for the closing of the Suez
Canal to the warships of all out-
side powers including naval ves-
sels of the United States and the
Soviet Union. From time to time
opportunities for regional re-

in my judgment the region is the

is now.

Four Jewish

In Damascus
PARIS (JTA> Four Jewish
women were killed in Damascus
last week.
Their bodies were found Fri-

quarter, it was reported by the
French daily. I.e Figaro, which
cited a "sure source" for this in-
ACCORDING TO the daily,
several dozen Jews left their
ghetto to participate in a demon-
stration by Christian women last
Tuesday to protest Syria's anti-
Jewish discrimination.
The protestors were reportedly
brutally dispersed by the police.
Le Figaro, in its Fiiday edition,
quoted diplomatic sources say-
ing that the -layings were by ex-
iremi-ts opposed to President
Hafez Assad's Middle East policy,
out it was not known whether
the extremists were Palestinian
or loca. opponents of Assad.
Earlier, the French state radio.
Prance Inter, reported that a
number of Syrian Christians,
mainly women, had conducted
such a demonstration in the cen-
ter of Damascus and tried to
march tlnough the streets.
ACCORDING to this report,
they were protesting a recent
incident dm living a number of
Syrian Jewish women who re-
portedly had been arrested and
maltreated and others believed
to have been killed.
It was not immediately clear
whether the four women found
Friday were those killed earlier

tion leaders lost no time in flay-
ing the Labor leadership, parti-
cularly Dayan. for suddenly drop-
ping his advocacy of a national
unity government on alleged
security grounds.
Gen. Ariel Sharon, the Likud
founder and a popular hero of
the Yom Kippur War, accused
Dayan of exploiting the situation
on the Syrian front which Sharon
claimed, was no worse than
others that have arisen since the
Yom Kippur War and which he

Menaehem Beigin claimed on
a television inteiview that if
Dayan and Peres had held out
for a unity government it would
have come about.
Newspapers carried dozens of
a'tides equally critical of Mail
and Dayan and accusing them of
exploiting the Syrian scare for
political purposes.
Haim Ilrffcr. a pro-Labor poet
wrote in Yediot Achronot that
the man-in-the-street has lost all
t u-t and confidence in the coun-
try's political leadership.
Sylvia Keahet, a columnist in
the same newspaper, charged
Mrs. Meir with cynical deception
and claimed that under her lead-
ership the Labor Party was se-
verely weakened.
SIMILAR opinions were ex-
pressed in the independent press

the Knesset, where he led off a
10-hour debate on the new gov-
ernment by charging that the
Labor Party's coalition maneu-
verings brought "public shame
and disgrace" to Israel.
Referring sarcastically to Mrs
Meir's "final" decision to step
down, Beigin declared that the
world obviously did not know
the Hebrew meaning of "final."
"You have made the word of
Israel's Prime Minister a mock-
ery and source of laughter,"
Beigin shouted looking straight

But "one night he suddenly
did a somersault. What happen-

and answered himself: "A de-
fense scandal unprecedented in
the annals of the State."
HE WAS referring to last
week's top secr*t Cabinet meet-
ing on the Syrian situation which,
he charged, was made public
only in order to let Dayan change
his mind without losing face.
"Golda, who always complain-
ed of leaks from Cabinet meet-
ings, published tins top secret in-
formation herself tor political
purposes." Beigin claimed.
According to Beigin, she there-
by compromised Israel's intel-
ligence sources in Syria. "And
we know what happens to com-
promised intelligence sources in
Syria," he said.
Beigin also denounced the Na-
tional Religious Party for agree-
ing to compromise on the "Who
is a Jew" issue and for retreat-
ing from its position in support
of a national unity government.
He challenged Mrs. Meir's con-
tention that a government with
Likud could never bring peace
with the Arabs. If Labor claims
it will never give up the Golan
Heights, the Gaza Strip or Shaim

make peace? Beigin asked.

THIS IS more true of the Jews, for during

could end at any time.

the congregation didn't think cantors should play-

No sir. Ther were limits to everything! t
The Yiddish folk songs were equally potent.

The first Yiddish song my mind goes back
to was "Auf dem Pripichok," telling how the

Eichmann Slated for Silver Screen
1,'I.V LANDAU commences production of the
second series of motion pictures from famous
plays under the subscription format of the Amer-
ican Film Theater, with Robert Shaw's "The Man
in the Glass Booth," fictionalized account of the
capture of and trial of Adolf Eichmann, a drama
which caused a great deal of controversy when
it appeared on Broadway with Donald Pleasence
portraying the central character.
Robert Shaw, the British actor turned play-
wright, takes a satirical look at the Nazi colonel,
who ordered the mass murder of European Jewry,
and comes up with some suprising, otu.. ^nocking
and contradictory findings about the Gestapo
man, in the capricious author's rather free adap-
tation not only hiding behind the glass enclosure
of a Jerusalem courtroom but also behind the
identity of a Jew.

comparatively unknown area and period in Jewish his-
tory in his "Jews of the Middle East, 1860-1972" (Join
t\'iley & Sons, n.p. 206 pp.).
The introduction provides the historical back
ground of the Jewish communities in the Middle East
em countries from "..e 16th century to 1872.
Yemen and Iran were under Shi'ite rule for ovef
300 years and the treatment of the Jews in these places
was harsh.
IN THE Sunr.i "countries'' of Turkey. Egypt, Iraq,,
Syria and the Lebanon, the Jew., fared much better.
The thrust of the book is to show how the economic,
