Clears PLO
Of Charges
cellor Bruno Kreisky said here
that the Palestine Liberation
Organization is "not at all in-
volved" in a recent terrorist
bomb attack apparently aimed
at air communications between
Vienna and Tel Aviv.
He made that statement on a
television interview after the
Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine (PFLP) warn-
ed of new attacks to disrupt
the flow of Jewish immigrants
from the Soviet Union. The
PFLP claimed credit for the
explosion of a booby-trapped
suitcase at Ben Gurion airport.
KREISKY said that Austria
would continue to keep its bor-
ders open to Jewish emigres in
transit to Israel or other coun-
tries. "A closure is out of the
question," he said.
Yadin Calls
For New
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prof. Yigal Yadin made a
new foray into politics with a call for the establishment of
a new government and a change in the electoral system.
The former armed forces Chief of Staff, now a prominent
archaeologist, claimed, in an interview published in Maariv,
hat there was a crisis of non-confidence in the government
of Premier Yitzhak Rabin.
"There is a feeling that there is no rule of law but of
desperation," he said. "In a state of siege such as ours, and
considering the difficult times ahead, there is nothing so
dangerous as such feelings among the public."
HE SUGGESTED that a temporary care-taker govern-
ment be formed with the immediate task of arranging for
new Knesset elections on a direct ballot regional basis in
place of the present system of voting for party lists.
Yadin announced on a television interview last week
that he was giving serious thought to the establishment of
a new independent faction which he would head and which
he would use, if successful, as a base to seek the Premier-

Bond Sales Reach $2.5 Million ** *"* Mrt FUhnum H*'
The Palm Beach County com-
mittee for State of Israel Bonds,
under the chairmanship of Mich-
ael B. Small, announced recent-
ly that the sale of Israel Bonds
had reached S2.25 million. Ac-
cording to Small, the Palm
Beach County committee will
meet and Dlan additional drives
to increase the sale of Israel
Bonds throughout the summer.
Small noted that the tapping
of fresh sources of energy is
essential to increase production
for export to reduce Israel's
huge balance-of-payments de-
ficit. It is also necessary to
clear the way for the building
of new industries and the crea-
tion of job opportunities for new
"We are in the Year of En-
ergy, a time not only to provide
energy and power for the wheels
of industry and for the normal
functioning of the machinery of
life, but also to give Israel the
energy to lessen her reliance
on foreign governments and to
stand on her own two feet,"
Small said. "Under these cir-
cumstances the Palm Beach

Offensive Jewish Stereotype
In Memphis Paper Deplored
The Memphis Jewish Commu-
nity Relations Council has writ-
ten a letter to the Memphis
Commercial Appeal in which it
deplores a cartoon published in
the daily newspaper on Apr. 2
as "an offensive depiction of
the Israeli or Jewish stereo-
The complaint was in the
form of a letter sent by Morris
Kriger, president of the Mem-
phis Jewish Welfare Fund, and
Lewis Kramer, president of the
Memphis Jewish Community Re-
lations Council.
ACCORDING to die Hebrew
Watchman, which carried the
letter on its editorial page, the
cartoon depicted Israel as an
octupus holding on to Arab oc-
cupied land, shedding tears and
telling "Uncle Sam" that "Sob!

"Uncle Sam," looking amazed,
points to Sadat while an Arab
says, "One man's aid is another
man's tantrum."
In the letter, the two local
Jewish leaders said 'It is some-
what frightening and very dis-
turbing" to have seen the car-
toon in the Commercial Appeal
and wondered if this meant a
change in the paper's policy.
"If so, it would appear that
this policy is blatantly anti-
Semitic," they said.
KRIGER and Kramer said the
editorial is a distortion of Is-
rael's opposition to U.S. military
aid to Egypt and Ambassador
William Scranton's speech at
the United Nations.
"In both cases," they said, "it
must be clearly understood that
Israel policy is a result of de-
liberate decision-making pro-
cesses which will allow first and
foremost for the preservation of
security, while at the same time,
work toward achieving a lasting
peace in the Middle East."
The letter concluded by no-
ting that Israel has always
sought direct negotiations with
the Arabs and has always been
turned down.
County Jewish community must
continue to act to move Israel
significantly forward to eco-
nomic independence through
the most positive response to
our present campaign.
"The Hebrew letters ror 28

Kodak Vows
No Bowing
To Arab
Eastman Kodak Company, in
response to actions brought by
the American Jewish Congress,
has announced that it would
"reaffirm" its opposition to the
Arab boycott at its annual meet-
ing this week.
The giant camera and film
corporation had faced a lawsuit
brought by Mr. and Mrs. Martin
K. Baiter Kodak sharehold-
ers and members of the Amer-
ica Jewish Congress for its
initial refusal to submit a reso-
lution to stockholders requiring
disclosure of any involvement
in the Arab boycott.
THE SUIT was filed as part
of a massive nationwide cam-
paign, sponsored by the AJCon-
gress, using stockholder action
against the Arab boycott. It
sought to have Kodak's annual
meeting postponed until the
resolution was restored to the
agenda for consideration.
Faced with the possible post-
ponement of its annual meet-
ing, Kodak agreed to reaffirm
its opposition to the boycott.
The suit was then withdrawn.
Will Maslow, general counsel
to the AJCongress, and attorney
for the stockholders, said that
the suit was filed against Kodak
following an opinion by the Se-
curities and Exchange Commis-
sion that Kodak's activities in
the Arab countries and Israel
constituted "too insignificant"
a part of its overall business to
reauire including the AJCon-
gress resolution in its proxy
statement to stockholders.
ALTHOUGH Kodak's dealings
in the Middle East are only 4.3
percent of Kodak's business,
Maslow said, they still amount
to more than $15 million each
In response to its filing of the
stockholder resolution on the
Arab boycott, the AJCongress
has received written assurances
from 22 of the country's largest
corporations including Gen-
eral Motors. Scott Paper and
Xerox that they will refuse
to submit to Arab boycott de-

Arabs, Druze Break
Ties to Labor Bloc
Israeli Arab and a Druze leader
who comprise the "Progress

tion closely linked to the Labor
Alignment here announced that
they were breaking their ties
with Labor and forming an in-
dependent faction of their own.
A formal notification of their
intentions was sent to the Align-
ment's Knesset whip, Moshe
Wertman, by Druze Sheikh Ja-
ber Muadi and the former May-
or of Nazareth Seif-A-Din Zua-
MUADI occupies the post of

He did not say in the letter that
he intended to relinquish it. But
he and Zuabi complained that
they were consistently over-

Leadership and never consulted.
They noted that when Pre-
mier Yitzhak Rabin, Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon and for-
mer Foreign Minister Abba

KGB that they will be liable to prosecution on charges of
parasitism unless they find jobs within a month. Among
them are Ilya Essas, Victor Barilovsky, Vladimir Prestin,

The warnings have been interpreted here as a sign that
the KGB is cracking down on the leading activists in the

These are all people who lost their jobs after unsuc-

Dissent or Deference?
There is a growing uneasiness within the American
Jewish community at the recent willingness of some
American Jews to publicly criticize Israel. Some Jewish
leaders have attacked the critics and urged them to be
Israeli Ambassador Simcha Dinitz said that while
he supports a frank dialogue between American Jews
and Israelis he does not believe the vehicle for it is
the American news media. Rose Matzkin, president of
Hadassah, lashed out "at Jewish personalities who have
taken it upon themselves to publicly criticize certain
policies of the State of Israel at this critical juncture."
Both Mrs. Matzkin and Dinitz said the criticism pro-
vides ammunition for Israel's enemies.
This position is very disturbing. Many of the Jews
who have criticized Israel have just as good Zionist and
pro-Israel credentials as tnose who go down the line
with the government.
The Zionist movement has never been a monolithic
force. Zionists have always expressed divergent views.
Neither have Jews in th* United States or Israel been
of one mind. After all both live in democracies.
Silencing criticism will not make the issues disap-
pear. But it will do more harm than open discussion
since it will force many persons out of the pro-Israel
cause, especially young people who need and want open
discussion. In the long run,
JDL Threat is Irresponsible
Rabbi Meir Kahane and his Jewish Defense Leagut
have exceedtd their usual level of irresponsibility in
trying to be bad boys of the Jewish world. Kahane threat-
ened at a Tel Aviv news conference that, unless the
American government takes stronger action on behalf
of Soviet Jewry, there will be "kidnaping and possibly
worse" of Soviet diplomats in New York. This endan-
gers the Soviet Jewry movement as well as Jews in the
USSR itself.
Of course, Kahane will claim that he is not advo
eating kidnaping, only pointing out that it could happen.
The JDL, after every shooting or bombing at a Soviet
installation in New York, has denied responsibility ad-
ding, however, that "we applaud it." But Kahane is re-
sponsible for leading young impressionable people into
violence even if he does not commit any himself
It is therefore welcome that Israeli Foreign Minis
ter Yigal Allon has stronglv condemned Kahane's threat
Allon correctly pointed out that violence will harm the
efforts being made for Soviet Jewry and will alienate
the non-Jewish support that the cause has won.
Perhaps most important was a statement issued
by six Orthodox rabbis and yeshiva deans that "vio-
lence and terror" by Jews are "contrary to halacha"
and a violation of Torah Law. The JDL has received
much of its support and membership from the Orthodox
community. Perhaps this community has finally realized
that the JDL is a liability in the important struggle for
the right of Soviet Jews to emigrate.
Day of Solidarity
The Jewish woman as mother, wife, daughter
has played a major role in the history of the Jewish
people. Today, the Jewish woman, both in the United
States and in Israel, continues to play a vital part in
the enrichment of Jewish life and in the perpetuation
of the Jewish heritage.
Under the sponsorship of the Israel Histadrut Foun-

Quality Education Costs Money
[ HAVE not yet sorted out all
of the information pertinent
to the late lamented legislative
session, particularly as it re-
lates to education. But I do re-
call at least one distinguished
senatorial sentiment.
And that is that there is no
necessary relationship between
quality education and money.
It was said by several legisla-
tors in defense of the offensive
they joined against those who
wanted more funds for Florida

Columnist Tagged Spiro Then
Back in those good old days
an Elizabeth Rqy-type would
gun down her prominent lover
and, immediately upon acquit-
tal, go out on a tour of the
vaudeville circuit as penance. I
think it was Damon Runyon who
commented somewhat wryly
how these innocent, helpless
little ladies holding a gun in
their hands for the first time
managed to get all five bullets
in a vital spot while the cops
consistently missed the robbers
at equal distance.
Whether or not this type of
"entertainment" ultimately kill-

ent-day radio and television

be updated, but trotting out this
thief, this corrupter of public
trust and his colleagues of
the Nixon administration is
as crass and as vulgar as em-
bracing the female killers of
yesteryear. At least, if there is
an excuse, they were found in-
nocent of their crime.
Besides, crime in America
appears to be a matter of taste,
not law or some ancient, dis-
carded moral code. At the re-
cent meeting of the stockhold-
ers of the Northrop Corp., there
was tumultuous applause for the
company's chairman who had
pleaded guilty to felony charges
of making illegal contributions
to Nixon (Agnew), at least
$50,000 of which was used to
buy the silence of the Water-
gate burglars
The same outfit also paid
over $450,000 in bribes to the
Saudi Arabia thieves, Agnew's
typical clients. Of course, North-
rop is not alone you all know
about Lockheed, Gulf Oil, 3M
and the like.
AND THE chairman of the
SEC, guardian of corporate
sanctity (appointed by Gerald
Ford), just a few weeks ago
came out in opposition to leg-
islation which would prohibit
American corporations from
paying bribes abroad to prt>
mote their business interests.
Would be nice to hear from
Agnew on one of those talk
shows plugging his book (?) on
his views about bribing Amer-
ican public officials to "pro-
mote their business interests."
The man's an expert, having
been on the trke for a long

three-man committee sent here
by the Zionist Organization of
Canada to investigate the prob-
lems of Canadian olim has con-
cluded a week of hearings.
While most of the immigrants
appearing before the panel
spoke of difficulties they en-
countered with bureaucratic
red tape, they stressed the posi-
tive aspects of life in Israel and
made it clear that they had no
thoughts of returning to Ca-
GERALD N. F. Charness, of
Montreal, chairman of the com-
mittee, said that the body was
formed to pinpoint certain prob-
lems and find solutions, not to
heap criticism on Israeli au-
thorities. The hearings were
boycotted by the Jewish Agen-
cy which had been invited to
participate or to send observers
with "special status."
Josef Almogi, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Executive, told
newsmen that the invitation was
rejected because the ZOC is a
political organization and not
representative of the Canadian
Zionist Federation.
However, almost all immi-
grant federations and Zionist
groups in Israel sent observers
to the hearings.
THEY WERE also attended
by a representative of the re-
cently formed government-Jew-
ish Agency joint committee on
immigration and absorption
problems headed by Amos Ho-
rev, president of the Haifa
At the outset of the hearings,
Charness explained that the
ZOC decided to establish the
committee following its 41st an-
nual convention in Jerusalem
last year during which many
Canadian olim asked for help
from Canadian Jewry in over-
coming their problems here.
He said the inquiry was also
prompted by a statistical survey
which showed that 40 percent
of Canadian olim returned to
Canada within five years of
Trudeau For

Trudeau, in an apparent re-
versal of his earlier position,
said here that it might be a

question is raised at the UN-
sponsored "Habitat" Confer-
ence which opened in Van-
"I am not one of those
who get shocked when Arabs
or Third World members

their arrival in Israel.
A FEW of the witnesses com-
plained of low living standards,
a poor quality of life in Israel
and difficulties educating their
children. Others were satisfied
with the educational facilities.
Most of the problems involved
bureaucratic snarls, especially
in housing, loan applications
and mortgages. They seemed to
feel that if settled Canadians
handled this paper work it
would proceed more efficiently.
Rosalind Artzi, who came to
Israel from Montreal in 1972
with her husband and daughter,
charged that the Jewish Agency
neglected immigrants from
Western countries because their
attitude was that all Western
olim had the necessary finan-
cial resources to get along.
BY AIVD large, the com-
plaints voiced by the Canadians
stemmed from conditions en-
countered by olim from all parts
of the world and, in fact, by
many native-born Israelis.
The Jewish Agency's attitude
toward the hearings apparently
generated more attention here
than the testimony heard.
Almogi complained that the
press was playing up the in-
quiry beyond its true propor-
tions. He noted that the Agency
is in touch with immigrants and
in contact with organizations
and Zionist federations with re-
gard to their problems.

Highlights of Federation's Annual Meeting
A highlight of the outgoing president's report was the
success of the 1976 campaign. For their outstanding
leadership and achievement, Mrs. Bette Gilbert present-
ed awards from the UJA to general campaign chairman
S.anley Brenner (right) and Cynnie List, Women's Di-
vision chairman.
Recipient of an affectionate hug along with his award
for his efforts in creating and moderating the Federa-
tion's television program, "Mosaic" is Rabbi Sheldon
The knotty legal task of updating Federation's by-laws
and charter in keeping with growth and current admin-
istration and management won for Bruce Daniels a
Community Service Award. The new by-laws and char-
ter were adopted.
Berenice Rogers received a very special Community
Service ward for her role in establishing a Women's Di-
vision office in Palm Beach for coordinating and credit-
ing gifts either to the New York UJ or Federation's
Women's Division.
The awarding of Community Service Citations saw Sey-
mour Fine commended for his efforts on behalf of the
development of the Camp Shalom summer day camp
The success of the Leadership Development program was
the basis for the Community Service Award presented
to Kenneth Scherer. Many graduates of the program are
actively involved in the Federation campaign and are
assuming leadership roles throughout the community.
Federation's TV personality Barbara Shulman merited
a Community Service Award for her creative efforts in
the development of "Mosaic." The program features
films interviews and panel discussions on activities of
Mrwfito the Jewish as well as the general community.
Mrs. Shulman moderates the program each Sunday at
10 a.m. on Channel 5.
For cochairing the Leadership Development program,
m addition to her many involvements with the Women's
division campaign, Detra Kay was awarded a Commu-
nity Service citation. As cochairman of the Women's Di-
vision Phon-a-Thon, Mrs. Kay was instrumental in help-
ing achieve the goal for the 1976 campaign.

His psychological problems,
according to the study _go back
to his childhood. His father, the
Reza Shah, had an explosive
Cossack temperament and had
little patience with his son. The
junior Shah was also a sickly
lad, given to daydreaming.
ONE TIME, the old man came
upon the boy standing beside a
palace pool. The father asked
the boy what he was doing. The
boy replied: "thinking." There-
upon, the senior Shah uttered
a roaring curse and booted his
heir into the pool.
CIA psychologists believe that
the Shah's cruel father, his
years as a pawn of the West
and his fear of impotence con-
tributed to an enormous in-
feriority complex. Now this in-
secure man, showered with oil
billions and bolstered by the
United States, is determined,
according to the psychologists,
to show the world.
American relations have been
jarred by a squabble over
money. Israel asked for an extra
$550 million to cover the three-
month gap caused by moving
the new fiscal year back from
July 1 to October 1.
President Ford turned down
the request. The Israelis then
brought pressure on Congress
to grant the $550 million any-
way. In Tel Aviv, the outspoken
American Ambassador, Mal-
colm Toon, called this "dirty
pool." And back in Washington.,
the President threatened to veto
the foreign aid bill if it includ-
ed the extra money for Israel.
But Israel's Premier Yitzhak
Rabin claimed he had been pro-
mised the money during his
January visit to Washington. He
had the word, he said, of Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger.
WE HAVE obtained some con-
fidential documents about the
$550 million squabble. At a se-
cret White House session, the
question came up twice whether
a commitment had been made
to give Israel the additional
$550 million. And twice, the
President repeated flatly: "Ab-
solutely none."
The President used strong
language at the session. "I can-
not justify that much for three
months/' declared the Presi-
dent, "when every military ad-
viser says they don't need that
much. I have no alternative. I
can't justifv that huge sum to
the American people."
THE PRESIDENT went on to
add, according to the confiden-
tial minutes: "We're helping Is-
rael in some very sensitive
areas and, if you look at their
military situation and shopping
list, they're in much better
shape than before the Yom Kip-
our War."

Youi Rabbi Sneaks
Theodor Herzl
His Seventy-second Yahrzeit
Rabbi, Temple Beth El
This week we observe the
72nd anniversary of the death
of an extraordinary man, Theo-
dor Herzl. His name symbolizes
an ideal which has endured and
which was a turning point in
the history of the Jewish peo-
ple. An outstanding journalist,
a playwright of undoubted tal-
ent, a man of charm, wit, and
attained all the wordly and so-
eloquence, he could easily have
cial success he had hungered
for in his youth. But he aban-
doned h all for a higher pur-
pose in life.
The tragedy of his persecuted
and misrepresented people
would not let him rest, and so
he aligned himself with them
and gave birth to his solution
to their problem, which later
became known as Political Zion-
ism. Although misunderstood
and derided, opposed by those
within and attacked by those
without the Zionist ranks, his
latent talents of statesmanship
and leadership steered the em
brvoniC movement with wis-
dom and firmness. The immen-
sity of his task undermined his
health and he died at the early
age of forty-four.
We may state without exag-
geration that the Schechinah,
the Divine Spirit, rested upon
Theodor Herzl. Our rabbis of
old enumerate the signs which
distinguish the man upon whom
the Divine Spirit rests. He must
be a sage, a hero, and a man
of commanding height. Each is
an indispensable prerequisite of
the inspired leader of men; and
each one is realized in this great
man to whom we are paying our
tribute of reverent love.
AS A SAGE he foresaw the
future, and the future has vin-
dicated the wisdom of his final
icceotance of Palestine, now
'srael, as the publicly proclaim-
ed and legally assured home of
the Jewish people. The Jewish
intelligentsia of Vienna and Ber-
lin. Paris and New York ridicul-
ed his forecasts of Jewish per-
s-ution in Western lands and
tubbed him a pessimist and a
d-amer. How tragically wrong
they were'
As a hero, a man cast in the
h-roic mold. Herzl consecrated
his davs to battle for a heroic
id?al. Like the true hero, he had
the eift of instinctive command
over men with the power of
co^ioelling them to follow him.
H fulfilled the rabbinical re-
quirement of "a man of com-
manding height" through his
dominating personality, which
Hwarfed many of the leading
fieures of his day. He accom-
nhshed marvelous things in the
bn-f life sDan that Providence
allotted to him.
Onlv eight or nine years be-
fore his untimely death, as a
vnunff Vienna journalist, with
fpw Jewish interests and only
client Jewish knowledge, he was
t"TJSt into the charged political
nt^osohere that the Dreyfus
r>lot was brewing in Paris. He

was dazed by the rampant antt
Semitism unleashed in
the so-called cultural
capital of the world. Then one
day, with the suddenness of a
revelation, the idea of Jewish
national resurrection flooded
his soul. Suddenly the man was
changed into a philosopher, a
fighter, a champion of Israel.
IN AN incredibly short time
Herzl magnetized hundreds of
thousands of Jews by his noble
presence, his sincerity, his tact
and his untiring zeal. He ex-
hausted his strength in innum-
erable diplomatic interviews,
tiring tourneys, impressive mass
meetings and brilliant literary
The non-Jewish world as well
was compelled to listen and to
add a new term Zionism
to its social and political vo-
cabulary. Everywhere at the
courts of king, emperor, sultan
or Pooe. at the Hague Confer-
ence or the British Royal Com-
mission he came with his
demand: "Shallach Ammi," help
me to lead my people forth into
No estimate of Herzl, the man
and the Jew, however, would
be complete which did not take
account of his great statement
in the opening address at the
First Zionist Congress at Basle:
"The return to Zion must be
preceded bv our return to Ju-
daism." The word Judentum, as
used here bv him. covers all the
manifestations of the Jewish
eenius. foremost among them
being the revelation of the Di-
vine Spirit in the history, lit-
erary monuments and institu-
tions of Israel. The State of Is-
rael, too, must be built on spirit-
ual foundations; and as long as
Israel's life continues to be
built on spiritual foundations,
no hosts of barbarism or tyran-
ny can foil God's everlasting
purposes in regard to Israel.
Question: Why does Jewish
tradition prohibit embalming
of the dead?
Answer: Embalming is prohi-
'jiced for a number of reasons.
Generally speaking, embalming
interferes with the natural pro-
cess. Embalming procedures
usually require the body to be
cut over its major arteries.
These incisions are considered
a disfiguration of the body and
thus disallowed.
Embalming procedures nor-
mally force the blood out of the
major blood vessels and out of
the body. Usually this blood is
discarded and it should be
buried. In some cases those who
do the embalming will excise
certain parts of the body which
is again considered a prohibited
disfigurement of the body.
Others do certain surgical
procedures on the body for cos-
metic reasons which also is con-
sidered a disfiguring insult to
the body. The body is to be
treated with reverence as one
of the Almighty's creations and
ought not to be subjected to
unnatural treatment and disfi-
guration in such a wav.

Question: Why is carrying
prohibited on the Sabbath?
Answer: The act of carrying
"When thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps
shall give light in front of the candlestick" (Num. 8.2).
BEHAALOTEKHA "And the Lord spoke unto
Moses, saying: 'Speak unto Aaron, and say unto him
When thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall
give light in front of the candlestick.' And this was
the work of the candlestick, beaten work of gold unto
the base thereof, and unto the flowers thereof, it was
beaten work; according unto the pattern which the
Lord had shown Moses, so he made the candlestick"
(Numbers 8.1-4). After the Levites had been purified
they who were between their twenty-fifth (Numbers
8.24) and their fiftieth years, came to the tent of meet-
ing to take the place of the first-born in the holy serv-
ice. In the second year after the Israelites had departed
from Egypt, they observed the Passover festival on the
14th day of the first month, Nissan. Those who having
touched a corpse were deemed impure, were required
to wait a month to observe the festival. On the 20th
day of the second month, the cloud rose from the
tabernacle, and the children of Israel journeyed from
Mount Sinai, each tribe grouped around its standard
three days' distance behind the Ark. At this time, the
Israelites began burdening Moses with their complaints.
To ease the burden, 70 elders, on whom Moses' spirit
rested, were delegated to serve under him.
is one of the 39 major categories
of work that are prohibited on
the Sabbath. What is involved
in this prohibition is carrying
an object from the private to
the.public domain, or from the
public to the private domain, or
from one location in the public
domain to another location in
the public domain.
The rabbis in the Talmud at-
tempt to derive this prohibition
from the destription of the pro-
vision of two portions of Manna
on Friday in the wilderness
makine it unnecessary to cross
the threshold between one's
home and the street to gather
the Manna so "that a person not
go out from his place on the
Seventh day" (Embin 17b).
Another Talmudic source tries
to derive the prohibition against
carrying to the Biblical passage
where Moses tells the people
not to bring any more i
tions to him for the j
(Exodus 36:6). Some S

; EVIDENCE is, of course,
ntlng that things are chaog-
ing in the self-esteem of teach-
ers themselves.
For the first time, they are
beginning to dare to believe
that their expertise is worth the
same remuneration as the re-
muneration enjoyed by, say,
plumbers, is unplugging a
stopped-up sink any more
worthy than unplugging a
stopped-up mind?
Someday, teachers may even
dare see a worthiness equiva-
lency between themselves aad
lawyers. Or doctors. Or per-
haps legislators.
THIS IS a critical psychologi-
cal change in teachers, who no
longer prefer the enslavement
of praise for their calling to
wages for their worth.
That the legislature in Tal-
lahassee had such an incredi-
bly difficult session, with its
primary pork-chop polemics di-
rected against the education
budget, indicates a clear aware-
ness of this change.
Those legislators who argued
that there is no necessary rela-
tionship between education and
money were simply whistling
in the dark simply giving
one final tug on the public
heartstring, which would like to
continue to believe it, too.
A GROWING awareness of
the relationship between qual-
ity education and money, and
the growing public resistance
to the awareness, is beat ex-
emplified by the stunning news
item fror- Clearwater last week
that four of IS applicants for
Pinellas County teaching posts
failed to do better in wading,
writing and other qualifying
examinations than three-fourths
of the eighth grade students
they would be teaching if they
were hired.
This can be explained by the
fact that expert teachers have
long since begun to rebel
against the cheap exploitation
of their expertise at the same
time that functional illiterates
are hired to fill their ranks be-
cause 1) they are not likely to
make too much trouble about
pay; and 2) their acquiescence
to slave wages and sla\e condi-
tions would dilute the demands
of top flight teachers for re-
muneration commensurate with
their skills.

Hadassah Prexy Flays Critics of Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) Rose E. Matzkin, president
of Hadassah, lashed out "at Jewish personalities who have
taken it upon themselves to publicly criticize certain pol-
icies of the State of Israel at this critical juncture. Their
statements are being picked up and exploited by organized
dissidents within the Jewish community as well as by mem-
bers of Congress and the Administration who would like to
decrease various types of aid to Israel," she said.
Mrs. Matzkin made her
remarks at a press confer-
ence held before the house-
warming of the new nation-
al headquarters, Hadassah
House here.
She also condemned the
politicization of the World
Health Organization, with
which Hadassah as a medi-
cal organization is affiliated,
and described the improved
health conditions of the pop-
ulation in the West Bank
and Gaza, and the extensive
medical assistance Hadassah
and Israel have given to
those Third World countries
who now condemn Israel.
MARY BEAME, the wife of
New York City Mayor Abraham
Beame, joined Mrs. Matzkin in
the ceremony affixing the me-
zuzah to the entrance of the
new building. About 300 guests
representing other organiza-
tions attended a reception to
which Uri Ben-Ari, Consul Gen-
eral of Israel, brought greetings
from the Government of Israel.
In assailing the "Jewish per-
sonalities." Mrs. Matzkin de-
clared, without identifying them,

ish Press Association and a free-

they left the Soviet Union last
week at the end of the eight-
day First Editorial Conference
to the Soviet Union.
David Henschel. a St. Louis
free lance photographer who
was pool photographer for the
AJPA on the trip, told the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency that of
the some 180 persons boarding
the plane at Leningrad Airport,
Soviet customs officials only
searched the luggage of Joseph
Samue!c. nnhlisher of the Hou-
ton Jewish Voice; Anne Sha-
piro, associate editor of the
Kansas City Jewish Chronicle,
and himself.
HENSCHEL said the Soviet
officials destroyed negatives
and erased tape recordings
taken at a meeting with 35 Jew-
ish "refusniks" in Moscow.
The Jewish newsmen were
part of a group that included
members of the Overseas Press
CTub of America and the News-
women's Club of New York.
Henschel said that at official
press conferences in Leningrad
and Moscow representatives of
the Soviet press said they want-
ed a free and open exchange.
But he said when be and Mrs.
Shapiro asked questions about
Jewish emigration they receiv-
ed no answers.
HENSCHEL said that he had

ish situation before going to the
USSR and had made arrange-
ments to meet some of the Jew-
ish activists-

according to Henschel. Hens-
chel noted that many of the

for the first time the ordeal of
Soviet Jews.

Basically, Sharon is a "hawk" who believes that
the Arabs have not given up their desire and aim
of destroying Israel. He warns that Israel may well
have to fight several more wars in order to firmly
establish its existence and independence as a sov-
ereign state in the Middle East.
HE IS intense'y skeptical of Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat's ostensible "moderation." He has pub-
licly stated that since the Yom Kippur War Israel's
position has been weakened by the government's
own actions. Sharon objected to the interim accord
with Egypt, and more recently to the way the De-
fense Ministry has dealt with the unrest on the West
Sharon argues that the fundamental fault of the
present Israeli government is its lack of a basic
deal, "a national goal" to which government and
public may aspire.
HE ALLEGES that the Cabinet has no long-term
policy in any area of national life; that it formu-
lates its policy from one day to the next; that its
executive machinery is inefficient; that the personal
relations between the Premier, the Foreign Minister
and the Defense Minister have a considerable nega-
tive impact on its competence to conduct the affairs
of the nation.
Sharon has several options open to him, if he
wishes now to resume his political career. (In 1973,
he welded the Likud opposition bloc out of four
political parties but broke away to rejoin the
army at the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War).
HE CAN return to the liberal wing of the Likud,
he can try uniting the Likud into an homogeneous
body, doing away with the inter-party differences;
or he may make an attempt to establish a new polifr
ical movement bused on several well-known person-
alities (most of them ex-army officers now holding
senior positions in private and public administration
and industry).

Second in a Series
By Novelist Elie Wiesel

-\IESSENGERS of God: Biblical Portraits
and Legends" (Random House, $8.95,
237pp.) is the second volume in an overall ser-
ies by Elie Wiesel which began with "Souls on
Fire: Hassidic Portraits and Legends."
In his lucid style, Wiesel asks the reader
to consider the many provocative and thought-
ful questions which have arisen upon discus-
sion of stories and events in the Bible. Over
the centuries, such discussion has often cre-
ated legend.
WHERE THE Bible is brief and non-des-
criptive, our sages have created beautiful and
elaborate legends in the Midrash, Talmud and
commentaries of individual rabbis.
Wiesel has selected Biblical heroes who
have faced God under unusual circumstances
and whose trials and tribulations can be under-
stood today. For example, Job is the victim
of both God and man; Isaac is a survivor of
the altar of flames; Adam discovers the at-
traction and the danger of secrets and knowl-
WIESEL LOOKS at each story with a var-
iety of commentaries, some of which challenge
our traditional views of Bible stories.
As always, Wiesel is a master storyteller.
He speaks with simplicity and honesty. It is
?hese qualities, plus the nature of a short work
replete with mystical ideas, that makes it seem
fragile. But this is so with many of Wiesel's
The juxtaposition of the strength of his
writing combined with the holiness and fre-
quent vulnerability of his characters, make
for the powerful impact of his works. This is
a book not to be missed.
1 SHOULD Care," by Sammy Cahn (Pyra-
mid Books, $1.75, 267pp., index) does not reveal
intimate secrets of Bing Crosby and Frank
Sinatra as the book jacket would have us be-
lieve. This is the autobiography of a Jewish
lyricist who made good in Hollywood, and re-
calls his escapades with Sinatra and others.
It will particularly appeal to those who
have continued to enjoy Cahn's lyrics from
the late 1930s (I didn't know he wrote "Bei
Mir Bist Du Schon") through the 1970s.
CAHN REMINISCES about the '40s and '50s
when Hollywood still had a "star" system, and
he wrote for them all, including such favorites
as "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!",
"Three Coins in the Fountain," and "High
Accompanied with photographs, this is a
nostalgic trip told with the humor and lan-
guage a Landsmann could appreciate.

A NUMBER of books have appeared lately
about Lindberg, including the diaries of his
wife, Anne Morrow.
Christopher Columbus didn't get the ova-

when he crossed the ocean by air. Others had
made the air trip across the ocean before
Lindbergh, but he was the first to do a solo
IT WAS a creditable feat for which he
merits praise, but be did some things not to
creditable. In World War II, he identified him-
self with the Nazis. His wife sorrowfully ad-
mits that he was used by the Nazis, but says
he personally had no anti-Semitic feelings.
Whether he had or not, he helped the anti-
Semite side. He assumed the role of a prophet,
warning Americans that they would not be
able to successfully fight against the Nazis.
Perhaps if he had studied the Talmud, he
would not have made the mistake. There is a
Talmudic saying that since the destruction of
the Temple prophecy-was left to fools.

THE ISRAELI Brigadier Kisch of the Al-
lied Engineering Corps arranged for a net-
work of pipes to bring water for the British
troops. Thirst played an important part in the
waterless desert fighting. Many of the German
troops are said to have gone mad drinking

Hitter prophesized that the Nazi order
which he introduced would last a thousand
years, but within a few years, it was done for.
