HE URGED the government
to introduce plans, which he
said are now totally lacking, for
the border question, the eco-
nomy, and the social structure.
There must be plans, targets
and goals for which people can
strive, he said.
But most of the hour-long
programs was devoted to se-
curity questions. He declared
that the second interim agree-
ment with Egypt has not re-
duced the chances of war. He
claimed that while there have
been reports that one-third of
the Egyptian army has returned
to civilian life, not one single
unit has actually been cut.
Sharon said what has happen-
ed is that modernization of the
Egyptian army has increased its
fire power and thus allowed for
reducing the number of men as
an economy move.

turn for certain promises that
have not been kept. He said
there was a promise made that
there would not be any Amer-
ican pressure for further with-
drawals for at least three years.
But even before the ink was
dried new pressures were exert-
ed, he said.
He said the government
claimed that signing the agree-
ment would increase American-
Israeli friendship, instead there
has never been such a deteriora-
tion in U.S.-Israeli relations as
now. The government also
claimed that the agreement
would isolate Syria, Sharon said,
but in reality it is Israel that is
isolated while Syria is being
supported by the U.S. for her
actions in Lebanon.
Sharon charged that even
Americans are surprised to see
how easily the government
gives in to pressure from Wash-
ington. He said Israel should
tell the U.S. what its bottom
line is beyond which it will not
succumb to pressure.
We Have No A-Bombs
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israeli officials have again
denied that their country has nuclear bombs. Israel is not
a nuclear power, and it will not be the first to introduce
atomic weapons into the Middle East, the officials said,
responding to a report in the current issue of Time
magazine that Israel has a stock of 13 locally-made nuclear
bombs and considered using them during the 1973 Yom
Kippur War.
Israeli sources were quoted as suggesting to foreign
news media that the Time report, like last month's CIA leak
that Israel has 10-to-20 nuclear weapons, was leaked to
counter Israel's objections to the sale of American arms
to Egypt and its own requests for increased American mili-
tary assistance.

JERUSALEM (JTA) President Daniel Oduber
Quiros of Costa Rica was welcomed at the gates of Jeru-
salem Monday by Mayor Teddy Kollek with the tradition-
al bread and salt at the start of an official visit to Israel.
Oduber flew into Lod Airport, where he was welcomed
by President Katzir and Premier Rabin. Katzir and Oduber
in short statements both stressed the close ties linking the
two countries.
During his visit, he was scheduled to address the
Knesset an honor reserved for visiting heads of state.

Ford Threatens To Veto Aid to Israel
President Ford's opposition
of financial aid to Israel be-
yond his own recommenda-
tions and the strong feeling
in Congress to support Is-
rael's stated requirements
by providing finances to cov-
er the three-month period
between the current and
new fiscal years, raised
questions here of the effects
of a threatened Presidential
veto of the foreign assistance
Such a veto is seen as in-
volving the future of Pre-
mier Yitzhak Rabin's gov-
ernment and fiscal chaos
within many other nations
who count on an ongoing
American aid program.
THE HOUSE delayed its vote
on the appropriations for for-
eign aid until this week to take
into account the President's
feelings. Despite die veto threat.
House and Senate sources in-
dicated a compromise is in the
political wind and that Israel
and some SO other countries
would receive most of a pro-
jected program to include the
transitional quarter between
July 1 and Sept. 30.
The crescendo over the for-
eign aid appropriation rose after
Ford posed his veto threat at a
meeting with leaders of both
parties at the White House Apr.
7. This meeting followed his let-
ter to House Speaker Car! Al-
bert (D.-Okla.) that "If I am
presented with a final appro-
priation bill that includes addi-
tional funds for the transitional
quarter I will be forced to exer-
cise my veto."
FORD'S LETTER also said
that "specifically, in the case of
Israel, FT 76 and 77 budget
requests provide sufficient lev-
els of assistance to meet that
nation's needs." Recognizing the
difficulties a veto would cause,
the President said. "It would
seriously disrupt our efforts to
assist our friends and allies in
maintains their security and de-
velopment growth efforts.'' Sen.
Clifford Case (R.-NJ.), among
the 12 Senators and 17 House
members who met with the
President, declared afterwards,
that "Funding for all countries
in the transition quarter is con-
sistent with every action the
Congress has taken. The Admin-
istration's position is inexpli-
cable in view of its own support
for transitional quarter appro-
Secretary of State Henry A
Kissinger had approved the
Senatorial formula adding 25
percent to the levels of the 1976
appropriations for die transi-
tional quarter. Later, the White
House rejected it. The Senate-
House conference on appropria-
tions has disagreed.
THE HOUSE had gone along
with the Presidential recom-
mendation of no funds for die
transitional quarter while the
Senate allocated the funds. Un-
der the Senate bin about $800
million is added to the 1976 fis-
cal vear bill of which Israel
would receive $550 million and
Egypt $175 million.
Within the bill itself Israel is
ticketed in both Houses for $2.2
billion and Egypt about $700
million. The Ford letter to Al-
bert was made public at the
White House after the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency asked Presi-
dential news secretary Ron Nes-
sen for a full report on the
White House meeting.
Nessen said the "carefully
prepared" letter formed the
"basis of the President's re-
marks and thus coincides with
what the Presiednt said."
HOUSE Minority Leader John
Rhodes (R.-Arlz.) told newsmen
that the President had asserted
he would "have no alternative"
but a veto if more money is
voted for Israel. Sen Hugh Scott
Veto Would Bring
Unemployment Rise
she Zanbar, Governor of the
Bank of Israel, warned here
that if Israel does not receive
the extra $550 million in U.S.
aid to cover the transitional
quarter between fiscal 1976 and
fiscal 1977, unemployment in
this country would soar to 80,-
The additional foreign aid
funding for the three-month
period June 30-Oct. 1 is before
the U.S. Congress but is op-
posed by the Ford Administra-
tion. Zanbar presented this is-
sue as an example of why it was
undesirable for the Israeli eco-
nomy to be totally dependent
on the U.S.
HE SAID that under the
present circumstances, depend-
ence was so complete that "po-
liticians in Washington can de-
cide if we will have unemploy-
ment and what its rate will be."
Sources in the Prime Minis-
ter's Office were quoted, mean-
while, as saying that Premier
Yitzhak Rabin raised the matter
of transitional quarter funding
for Israel at his meeting with
President Ford in Washington
last January, but that the Presi-
dent "showed no special inter-
est in the request" and handed
the matter over to Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger.
The sources said Kissinger
made it clear to Israel that the
Administration would not ask
Congress for tiie additional
funding but "would not object"
if Congress took the initiative.
OBSERVERS nere assumed
that Ford "probably changed
his mind" in view of the elec-
tion campaign but asked an of-
ficial of the National Security
Council to assure Israeli Am-
bassador Simcha Dinitx that the
change was not aimed at Israel.
Some 50 nations, including
Egypt. Syria and Jordan, would
also benefit from transitional
quarter funding. Meanwhile, a
Dublic opinion poll published
showed that 61 percent of the
Israeli public is "convinced" or
"thinks" that relations with the
U.S. have deteriorated.
According to the poll, 39 per-
cent believes there has been no
change in relations.
THE POLL asked Israelis
whether they considered most
important U.S. Ambassador Wil-
liam Scranton's veto of an anti-
Israel resolution at last month's
Security Council session or his
speech at the same session cri-
ticizing Israeli settlements in
the administered territories.
(R-Pa.) the Senate Minority
Leader, agreed with Rhodes'
version, saving "the President
made it very clear he would
veto the bill." Scott added that
he "would hate to see the bill
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey
(D -Minn), chairman of the for-
eign aid subcommittee, pointed
out that "A Presidential veto
could be interpreted by Israel's
neighbors as a weakening of the
to la-
American commitment
reel's security.''
He noted further that a veto
would "have a serious adverse
impact on Israel's economy."
HUMPHREY added that "a
veto would also jeopardize die
other funds in the bill so im-
portant to the Sinai agreement"
negotiated by Kissinger. How-
ever, Albert, hinting of a com-
promise, declared that "after

Are Syrian Troops in Lebanon]
Reports persisted this week
that Syrian army regulars,
disguised as members of the
Syrian backed Al Saiqa ter-
rorist group, are deployed
in key positions in Lebanon.
Al Saiqa units were report-
ed to be in the outskirts of
Beirut. They were reported
to have occupied the Leba-
nese Port of Sidon, south of
Beirut, the location of large
oil refineries.
THERE HAS been no confir-
mation of these reports which
have emanated from both rival
factions in Lebanonthe right-
wing Christian falangists and
the leftist leader Kama! Jum-
It was Jumblat's claim that
the Al Saiqa units were actual-
ly Syrian soldiers. He also
charged that Syria was trying
to impose a ceasefire at a time
when the leftists were routing
the falangists.
Israeli circles are inclined to
accept the reported entry of
Syrian units into Lebanon as
The belief here is that Damas-
cus has deliberately avoided
publicizing the presence of its
forces in Lebanon and has re-
ported to the Al Saiqa disguised
so as not to give Israel grounds
for intervention.
THE U.S. is aware of these
events but is also desirous of
preventing an Israeli-Syrian
confrontation while at the same
time supporting the efforts of
Syrian President Hafez Assad to
achieve a ceasefire in Lebanon,
Israeli circles said. The offlcial-
lv stated U.S. policy has been
that it would tolerate no out-
side intervention in Lebanon by
either Syria or Israel
Meanwhile, Israeli Chief of
Staff Gen. Mordechai Gur told
a group of visiting American
businessmen that Israel regards

He said that Israel has not
concentrated forces on the

GUR, WHO met with the
Americans at Kiryat Shemona
after they toured the Golan
Heights, said he didn't believe
there would be a Middle East
War in 1976 but warned that
the chances for war will in-
crease in the next two years

vance toward peace because the

The President's Puzzlement
In Jerusalem as chairman of the Jewish Agency
Board of Governors to attend budget meetings of that
organization, Max Fisher last week delivered himself
of a pronunciamento:
The industrialist opined that President Ford, who
is a close friend of his, has confessed that he is puzzled
by the growing tensions between the United States and
According to Fisher, the President doesn't know
where they come from, and furthermore, Mr. Ford is
quite certain that they are not anywhere manifest in
tha United States itself.
'Ergo: It is the Israeli press that is fomenting the
The feeling we get from all of this is that Mr.
Fisher believes the President is right in his assessment,
and that Mr. Fisher is indeed puzzled, too.
If that is so, the problem is a simple one. Instead
of talking to each other, both the President and Mr.
Fisher ought to get out of their isolation booth and talk
to the American people specifically, to American
In light of his distinguished role as a Jewish philan-
thropic leader, we would not have thought this would
be necessary for Mr. Fisher. Perhaps we are wrong.
Reasoning is Circular
For starters, they might pay some heed to Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger, who at a meeting the
other week of the American Jewish Congress in Wash-
ington, allowed that Israeli journalists are raving pa-
ranoiacs perhaps this is where Mr. Ford went to get
his understanding of the growth in tensions that puz-
zles him.
Then, Mr. Ford might assess nis threat last week
to veto any foreign aid bill that would include extra
funds for Israel.
After that, he might assess his foreign policy, which
increasingly pushes Israel against the wall, increasing-
ly demands concessions from her in the name of peace,
while extracting no demands from the Arabs: for ex-
ample, a simple Arab statement of non-belligerency
toward Israel.
After that, he might assess his not-so-subtle inten-
tion of ultimately recognizing the Palestine Liberation
Organization and the growing Arab pressure to wrest
control of Jerusalem back into their own grimy little
hands that once destroyed hundreds of synagogues in
the city, destroyed the Mount of Olives and closed Jews
off from their own Holy Places about none of which
Mr. Ford or his administration or his Secretary of State
seem to care even a whit.
After that Like Chad Gadya, the list is seem-
ingly endless. Mainly, it is circular. Always, it comes
back to the same thing. Why are the President and
Mr. Fisher so puzzled. Who's kidding whom?

IJENRY Kissinger's growing
n troubles with the Ford ad-
ministration emphasize the im-
mense similarities between him
and Richard Nixon that I have
written about here in the past.
They show that there really
is no difficulty in understand-
ing how Kissinger and Nixon,
two such seemingly opposite
personalities, got along so well.
There were vast differences
in the education of both men,
in their temperaments, their
finesse, their religion.
STILL, common to their souls
was a predilection for Bis-
marckian elitism, a contempt
for the capacity of humanity to
govern itself, an arrogant sense
of power that led to self-cor-
ruption and ultimate downfall.
Nixon faltered at Watergate.
Kissinger, his role in that scan-
dal not yet entirely document-
ed, nevertheless has his own
Watergates that are just now
catching up to him in full force.

The Quality of Jewish Poverty
Volume 2
Friday, April 23, 1976
Number 9
23 NISAN 5736
The reality of Jewish poverty
came out of the closet in full
this Passover season.
It has been with us, of course,
for many years, but barely ad-
mitted. Faithfully we recite each
year, "Let all who are hungry
come and eat. Let all who are
in want share the hope of Pas-
sover." And, while we have
meant it, the logistics of fulfill-
ing that prayer have been more
than we usually can cope with
in the largely anonymous set-
ting of urban life.
Through special funds, the
synagogues of our community
would deliver or give bags of
the special Passover foods to
those who could be identified as
needy. At best a mere scratch-
ing of the surface as those of
us know who hist helped pre-
pare 95 Passover "baskets" for
delivery by the Welfare Depart-
ment to indigent Jews on their
preparation of 3,500 food pack-
ages to be distributed last week
by the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation and the plans to hold
seders involving some 1.200 of
the local elderly whose partici-
pation will lend greater mean-
ing to "Let all who are hungry
come and eat."
This action by the organized
Jewish community deserves only
2raise and continued support.
But hunger and poverty are
more than just a one-week con-
cern for ritual and food and ful-
fillment of an ancient edict
Poverty and hunger for millions
of Americans, young as well as
old, Jewish as well aa black,
brown and other whites, are
with us all the days of the year
and all too many years for us
to be comfortable about.
As I was writing this, there
was an article on my desk
which stated that a White House
spokesman had found the spend-
ing levels in a Senate bill deal-
ing with food stamps not ac-
ceptable. "President Ford has
called for larger cuts in the
cost to the s^vernment."
President Ford, it will also be
recalled, has found that minor
cuts contemplated in military
spending also are "not accept-
ON THE DAY Passover con-
cludes, the Florida Citizens
Coalition Against Hunger will
hold a hearing and forum on its
most current issue of concern,
the food stamp legislation be-
fore the Congress. Aa I write
this, the list of Coalition sup-
porters does not contain the
name of a single Jewish organ-
ization although several Jews
are involved as individuals.
Churches, unions, senior citizens
organizations, etc.. are playing
significant roles in this hu-
manitarian endeavor.
Thus, back to the beginning.
Jewish poverty has not been a
major concern of the commu-
nity until recently. Israel was,
of course. Jewish education, vo-
cational guidance, hospta

Jewish leader in Cyprus re-
cently reported here that only
300 to 400 Jews remain In strife-
torn Lebanon out of a commu-
nity of 2,000 before the civil
war in that country.
He also said that, according
to the Jewish leader, no Jew
was hurt in Lebanon because
he was a Jew. But 14 Jews lost
their lives during the fighting
between Christians and Mos-
ACCORDING to the inform-
ant two were murdered by
thieves and the other 12 Jew-
ish fatalities were caused by
stray bullets. During the fight-
ing, both sides protected Jews
whom they regarded as neutral
in the bitter struggle between
Moslems and Christians.
Even during the period of
mass kidnappings, Jews were
allowed to pass, the French
tourist said he was told. He said
that Christians reportedly stop-
ped Jews in the streets to ask,
where are the Israelis in-
dicating that they hoped Israel
would intervene to protect them
from their Moslem antagonists.
WHILE the great majority of
Lebanese Jews managed to
leave that country, the few hun-
dred who remain are trapped
there either because they lack
money to flee because the banks
are closed or they are unable
to reach the airport due to the
fighting, the French tourist re-

Israel Must be More Flexible
nbassador Malcolm Toon
las warned Israel that it
bust be as flexible as its
curity needs permit lest
nericans come to feel
lightly or wrongly that
Ye Israeli government is
ubborn in its response to
nerican interests in the
kiddle East.
Toon expressed his views
i an interview in "Migvan,"
periodical published by
eth Berl, the Ideological
titute of the Labor Party
aded by former Foreign
kinister Abba Eban.
I THE U.S. envoy was respond-
| to a question as to whether
ere was danger of anti-Semit-
in the U.S. in reaction to
eli policies. He said that
nti-Israel feelings could de-
plop and that some elements
in the U.S. may hold Jewry re-
sponsible for Israeli policies
they believed ran counter to
U.S. interests in the region
He stressed, however, that
U.S.-Israeli relations were based
on mutual principles, ideals and
interests, but he would not spe-
cify exactly what those inter-
ests are. Ambassador Toon said,
in reply to that question, that he
believed it was in America's
interest for Israel to be a free,
independent state, and since
that was also Israel's national
interest, it covers everything.
TOON WARNED, as reported
by the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency and by Israeli news
media, that Israel should not
expect as much economic aid
from the U.S. in the future as
it presently receives.
He explained that the after-
math of the Vietnam war and
the internal problems that have
developed in the U.S. have
brought about changes in Amer-
ican thinking on foreign aid

Americans are more concen-

he said.
However, Toon stressed that

pay for the modern armaments
it needs and that It could con-
tinue to rely on the U.S. for
military support.

Saudi Plane
'Strays' In Israel;
Big W. Bank Vote
TEL AVTV A Saudi Arabian airplane with 27 passengers
and crew aboard was forced to land at Ben Gurion Airport Mon-
day, when Israeli air force jets waved it down.
Crewmen told officials that the transport plane was on its way
from Damascus, Syria, to Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, and
that it had "accidentally" strayed from its course.
IN ADDITION to the Saudi soldiers aboard, there were three
Americans, identified as employees of the U.S. Lockheed Corp.
Meanwhile, on the West Bank, elections Monday, including
enfranchised Arab women, showed strong Palestinian nationalist
support. Israeli election officials reported that candidates running
on the platform of a separate Palestinian state, were easy win-
ners in Nablus, Hebron and Ramallah. Officials said that 62,998
of 88.462 voters cast ballots.
Twenty-two West Bank towns were involved in the second
election since the 1967 war. The election was held under Jordan-
ian law, but Israel amended the law to allow the women to vote.
Nablus, Hebron and Ramallah represent the first, second and
fourth largest towns on the West Bank. In Tulkarm, the fifth, the
vote was to return to Jordanian rule. ^^^^

Vorster Trip to Israel Two-Edged Sword
detente with some m
radical Black AfriLn .*",
th-t he has take?^!
ten apartheid.
Minister John Vorster of South
Africa, visited Israel last week.
The Israel Radio and BBC,
which carried the announce-
ment, stressed that Vorster
came to Israel as a "pilgrim" to
visit the holy places.. But ob-
servers here noted' that the visit
marked a solid improvement in
relations between Israel and the
Republic of South Africa that
began to take shape after the
1973 Yom Kippur War.
PRIOR TO that, relations be-
tween Israel and South Africa
had been severely strained due
to Israel's votes against South
Africa on the apartheid issue in
the UN during the 1960s, in-
cluding support of sanctions
against that country.
At the time, Israel's relations
with the Black African nations
were flourishing, and Premier
David Ben Gurion maintained
that Israel could not avoid tak-
ing, a moral stand against the
racial policies of South Africa.
Since then, Israel's diplomatic
position in Black Africa has
deteriorated, partly as a result
of Arab propaganda efforts. But
the Israeli r.rtitnde toward South
Africa remains ambivalent.
ON ONE hand, Israel still
says it dees not condone apar-
theid. On the other, Israelis
recognise Sooth Africa as one
of its lew remaining friends in
the world
There is, in fact, a certain
kinship between the two coun-
tries in that both have been
diplomatically isolated, although
for different reasons.
Several months ago, the Is-
raeli Consulate in Johannesburg
was raised to Embassy level,
and shortly afterward the South
African Consulate in Tel Aviv
became an Embassy. Commer-
cial relations between the two
countries have expanded over
the past few years.
ISRAEL ALSO has strong ties
with the prosperous Jewish
community of 120,000 in South
Africa. It is regarded as one of
the warmest and most generous
Jewish communities in the
world with respect to its mate-
rial and moral support for Is-
Jewish education, Jewish
youth movements and Zionism
have found a hospitable climate
in South Africa. Recently, an
easing of currency regulations
by the South African govern-
ment has allowed the Jewish
community to render massive
financial assistance to Israel.
But apartheid remains a seri-
ous barrier, and because of it,
Israel's friendship with South
Africa has been used with not-
able success by die Arabs in
branding Israel a racist state.
Many Israelis themselves can-
not reconcile their own ideals
of democracy with friendship
toward an apartheid regime.

The complicating factor is
that even those who once upon
a time in northern climes were
active and dynamic joiners and
givers and doers, even they
have come to our Garden of
Eden ready to adopt the new
outlook of freedom and escape.

not only lose those who were

lose those of proven knowledge
and insight and example, who
now aay they have had enough.
Thus we are denied the help
and leadership of many who
possess great experience, but
who offer nothing more than an
example of apathetic retirement.
Their routine of constant play
and social indulgence sets a
shallow tone for the rest of the
community newcomers, who are
only too ready to mimic their
life-style. And so we end up
with a lower percentage of
synagogue affiliations and or-
ganizational activists and phil-
anthropic contributors than has
ever before been witnessed
among our people.
BECAUSE the problems are
so great, the challenges become
equally great that fall upon the
shoulders of the already exist-
ing Jewish community leader-
ship. But even these most hon-
ored leaders will not be able to
face up to the gigantic chal-
lenges, until they indulge them-
selves in the luxury of philos-
ophical examination. Prolifera-
tion of Jewish organizations and
feeding them willy-nilly at the
public trough of budgetary al-
locations are not the same as
sound growth through long-
range planning.
What is needed, first and fore-
most, is a spelled-out "philos-
ophy of Jewish meaning" for
our rapidly expanding commu-
nity, as well as a program and
platform of "reconversion and
resurrection," to bring back to
Jewish life our own cultural and
religious suicidal masses.
Such an effort may never
succeed altogether. Yet there is
no honorable choice but to try.
Those who call themselves lead-
ers cannot simply stand by and
watch American Judaiam and
Jewishness in our own midst
succumb to the lowest common
denominator of vacuous void
and emptiness.

Its chief spokesman was Plato.
In his essay "The Republic" he
divides the ideal society into

How significant it is that our
country is Biblically oriented
despite the fact that it is found-
ed on the principle of the sep-

The cornerstone of our coun-
try is brotherhood the fath-

hood of man. As a matter of
fact, Prof. Abraham Karp re-
cently stated that the very uni-
queness of America lies in its

Only a short time ago I ad-
dressed a large group of teen-
agers and I had a most difficult
time trying to convince them
that premarital sex is not the
recipe for a happy marriage,
and certainly not the cure for
the world's ills.
In addition, according to a
recent article in the Miami
Herald, the marriage rate is go-
ing down while the divorce rate
is going up.
There is a crisis and the
crisis is not economic nor po-
litical nor social; it is moral
and spiritual.
IN THE face of this crisis,
we must reaffirm our commit-
ment to the old morality, to the
principles of love and brother-
hood and to the validity of the
Ten Commandments, which are
even more relevant today than
they were 3,500 vears ago.
The ancient rabbis made a
very interesting observation. In
referring to the tablets of the
Ten Commandments, they said,
"Do not read the word 'horut,'
which means 'engraved,' rather
read 'herut,' which means 'free-
dom'," forever linking true free-
dom with the moral law.
If Passover, the Festival of
Freedom, is to have any special
meaning during this Bicenten-
nial celebration, it must awaken
within us a new realization of
America's primary commitments
and a deeper understanding
that our country's true freedom
is inextricably interwoven with
its spiritual moorings.

^Proclaim Liberty
Four thousand years ago, the Bible called the Jewish
people to "Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all
the inhabitants thereof ."And in 1776 the same call echoed
through America, to create the first democracy the modern
world has known.
The Declaration of Independence of the United States of
America set forth all the Jewish people hold dear,
spiritually and philosophically.
In 1948, almost 175 years later, the Proclamation of
Independence of the State of Israel set forth the same
principles:"... to develop the land for the good of all its
inhabitants; to rest upon foundations of liberty, justice and
peace; to maintain complete equality of social and
political rights for all its citizens without distinction of
creed, race or sex; and to guarantee freedom of religion
and conscience, of language, education and culture."
Two proclamations with one purpose, both proving that
where liberty, justice and equality are the creed, all men
are truly brothers.
