They had informed Party^ Secretary General Aharon Yadlin and Alignment chairman Moshe Baram by mail earlier that they could not support the new government biecauae it represented to them no change from the outgoing one.

position to the continuing shipments of U;S. wheat to Arab countries, at a time when the Arabs have embargoed oil shipments to this country. Some voices in Congress have been raised demanding a halt to the sale of wheat to countries that discriminate against the United SUtes. But John Farker, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, defended the sale of $800 million worth of wheat to various Arab countries on the ground that they must make up a drought deficiency to feed their populations.

For many years the Arabs have imported wheat from America, but now their requirements have increased and costs have gone up. Saudi Arabia will be buying wheat to the tune of $100 million, as compared with purchases of only 136 million a year ago. Iraq's order is for $60 million, an' increase of f3 million over last year. Egypt's purchases will aggregate $120 million, as compared with $83 million in 1973. Israel's purchases of U.S. wheat are estimated to be $200 million this year; last year they were for $145 million.

PARIS, (JTA) - Four Jewish women were killed in Damascus within the last week. Their bodies were found last Friday in a street of the Jewish quarter, it waa reported by the French daily, Le Figaro, which cited a "sure source" for this hiformation. According to the daily, several dozen Jews left their ghetto to participate in a demonatration by Christian women last Tuesday to protest Syria's anti-Jewish discrimination. The protestors were reportedly brutally dispersed by the police. U Figaro, in its Friday edition, quoted diplomatic sources saying that the slayinga were by extremists opposed to President Hafei Assad's Middle East policy, but It was not known whether the extremists were Palestinian or local op-

ponents of Assad. Earlier, the French state radio, France Inter, reported that a number of Syrian Christians, mainly women, had conducted such a demonstration in the center of Damascus and tried to march through the streets. According to this report, they were protesting a recent incident involving a numtwr of Syrian Jewish women who reportedly 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 or whether they were killed during the demonstration last Tuesday. The French radio did not mention any source of datelines as to where its report originated. Other sources in Paris confirmed the veracity of the report of the demonstration.

OMAHA - Tliree decades after the Nazi HolocaiMt there is a "new worldwide antiSemitism" based on insensitivity and indifference to Jewish coocems, according to the rindinga of a comprehensive study made public this week by Howard Weinstein, Plains Sute Regional Director of the AntiDefamatioo League of B'nai B'rith. The analysis, written by Arnold Forster, the League's associate director and general counsel, and Benjaroine R. Epstein, its national director, is based on three and a half years of ADL research. It reveals that the major difference between anti-Semitism today and the traditional Uttd is that the

new anti-Semitism is not necessarily deliberate in character and is more often "expressed by respected individuals and instilutioDs here and abroad — people who would be shocked to think themselves, or have others think them, anti-Semites." This new anti-Semitism, the Study reveals, is compounded by anti-Jewish hostility from pro-Arab elements, the radical left, the radical right, black extremists, the Soviet Union, Arab nations, and movements in Europe and Latin America — all in addition to the remnants of a hatemongering apparatus which has plagued the United States since the early ISSN's. In a foreword to the study, Mr. Graubard declares that a new anti-Semitism appeared as memory of the Nazi

NEW YORK - The rapidly growing phenomenon of single-parent families snd the Jewish commisiity's concern with these families were examined in a two-day Group Consultation on the Singlef-^ntFa-nU^ sponsored by the National J< Jewish Welfare Board (JWB). Members of single-parent families constitute a growing percentage of the Jewish community and this is reflected in the membership of Jewish Community Centers. On the average, they make up from I0to25percent of the total membenhip of JCX^t, in tome cases u much ss 30 to 40 per cent. Reasons for this exploding social phenomenon include the rapidly increasing divorce rate, the r^^nglng roles of women, the mobility of the American family, and a much longer period of widowhood due to a greater life expectancy for women.

Airline Passengers Prefer Kosher Meals NEW YORK, (JTA) Airline officials have discovered that passengers don't have to be Jewish to enjoy kosher meals. In fact, according to reports, many passengers these days ordering kosher meals during nights aren't Jewish. This discovery came to light as more passengers began ordering kosher meals when airline companies recently began to cut back on 4he number of meals or the quantity of food served as part of an economy drive by airline companies. Regular free in-flight meals are served by all airlines on long haul flights. Jewish passengers who want koaber meals can get tbem if requested 24 hours prior to flight time. Those who do, get meals that are usually more elaborate than the economyclass fare: brisket of beef on

Kahane Goes oh Trial JERUSALEM, (JTA)^ - Rabbi Meir Kahane went on trial liere charged with conspiracy to kidnap and murder foreign politicians during last June's visit to the United States by Soviet Communist Party Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev. He was also accused of involvement in planning to blow up foreign embassies overseas and sending letters ibroad ind cables from here during last May and June aimed at carrying out actions considered as crimes in the U.S. and Israel. Although the charge sheet did not specify the Brezhnev visit it did charge him with attempted conspiracy to harm relations with a friendly nation, the U.S. Premier Golda MeIr, in in affidavit presented to the court, stated that disclosure of government actions on the immigration of

Jews from the Soviet Union was liable to harm Israel's foreign relations and thus constituted a breach of the official Secrets Act. Mrs. Meir's statement, written in her role as acting Foreign Minister in the absence of Abba Eban who is abroad, was presented to the court by State Prosecutor Gabriel Bach. Judge Jacob Bazak ruled against a defense motion requesting Eban to be summoned as a witness to support the contention that Rabbi Kahane's actions were not liable to harm Israel's foreign relations. The JDL leader admitted writing letters and dispatching them abroad. He pleaded not guilty to the other charges. If Rabbi Kahane is found guilty he faces seven years imprisonment.

"ChristianJewish relations appear to be even better on Che person-to-person level in ihe community than they are among the official spokesmen of the major religious bodies.

Why Am I here? The following article is quoted from the AMERICAN ISRAELITE and describes the dedication ceremonies of the B'nai Israel Synagogue at 12th and Capitol in 18W: •-!• Omaha, the fifty families who were seat here by the emigration committee about sevea years ago. were well and Judicisasly cared for. and today they constitale a class of law-abiding citizens and have been blessed not only with a competency but some of whom are even more highly favored with wealth. "The members of the Hebrew Benevoleat Society should be congratulated oa the well-spent effort in behalf of their co-religisalsts. "The synagogue dedicated last Sunday evening is a neat brick building having a seating capacity of nearly MP. Rabbi Benson conducted the dedication services, assisted by the CSiazan of the congregation, the Rev. J. Borliant. The usual dedication ceremony was carried out in the preseiKe of • large eoneourse of people.

Remember the days when questionable quota systems kept some Jewish students out of college? Apparently it's happening again, although under completely different circumstances. The U.S. Supreme Court now has a test case that revolves around a Jewish student, 5(arco De Funis Jr. who was barred from entering the University of Washington Law School. A Phi Beta Kappa and a Magna Cum Laude graduate at Washington's undef^graduate college, de Funis sued the 4aw school after it had twice refused to admit bim. A trial in a Washington state court showed that by the university's own standards, based on college grades and the v^hool's aptitude teats, oolv one of the 37 Blacks, ' SAn<s'i->>"'named and PkOippine-Americans scored better than de Funis, but they were all admitted. The Washington lower coift upheld de Funis and he wtt enrolled in the law 'idieol. On appeal, however, ttie State's Supreme Ccmi •' ruled for the university. The [cue is now in the hands of VS. Supreme Court, and .according to some legal ^•uthorities the case conIpMNiM the most important ^ML rigbl* case since the i^ourU acted in MM.

After the i-eading of the law Rabbi Benson delivered the dedication sermon. He first congratulated and commended the spirit which had moved this people in its building of the synagogue. He spoke briefly of the beauty of the gratitude of any considerable body of people to the Almighty, and told the story of this society; how it had been driven by persecution from its European home. and,, transplanted, by charity, to a free country, it had laid hold on the advantages offered, and by improving every opportunity had succeeded in a few years in gaining a foothold that is permanent in its new abiding place. Then, as soon as it had come to have a taste of proaperity it had moved to the end of securing some place wherein its members might bow in worship of the Almighty according to the forms of their fathers.

The qaestion seems to be whether arnots public university may esUblish two ilandards of admission — one for white ifdeats aad another, at a lower level of qualUicatioas, for non-whites. In a way it was easier when the quota system was against Jews. Then it was no problem for national Jewish organizations to raise their voices in protest. But the de Funis casegeU a little sticky, and as a result Jewish organizations are split on how they stand.

On the one hand there are organizations like AOL, the American Jewish Congren and the American Jevrish Committed who uphold a single standard position. TVy argue that "if the Constitution prohibits exclusion of blacks and other minorities on racial grounds, it cannot permit the exclusion of whites on racial grounds." On the other hand there are supporters of the university's do«d>ie at^ndard including the National (Council of Jewish Women and the Commisaion on Social Action of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.

And then came his kit, which was found rusty and suined. In the Ut were a number of tape recorder cassettes. Some had not been used. Some had a vivid description of a cruel war. One of the tapes was private. A slip of paper said: "Not for publication. Kindly keep it for me till after the war, till I return." RafI Unger did not return. Kol Israel, the broadcasting service, sent the private personal tape to Unger's parents. They listened to it. It was a man talking with himself, with his soul. The parents gave it to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency for publication so that the Jewish public and Jewish youth might learn the answer to the question "Why am I here? Why does a Jewish youth find himself in the midst of a wart" What follows Is Ran Unger's stalcmeiil. "We are on the moVe southwards. Ihavesome time to do

They argue that aa Jews with a long history of fighting for social justice, we must not turn our backs on other* minority groups seeking the same advantages so long withheld from us. In the meantime, under a ruling by Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas, de Funis is in the law school and will stay there until the federal tribunal comes up with a decision. It's entirely possible that he may graduate before the issue is decided, t^ I have mixed feelings about the matter. I certainly sympathize with minority groups and their fight to gejt into the mainstream of higher education. But I think I'm even more frightened by any system of racial quotas. College admissions should be based solely on merit without regard lo skin color ot parental origin The danger of the double standard is that the groups which are supposedly helped by the double standard can as easily become its victims.

I am IhiaKiag, evea now, as I am lalkiag Into the microphone, and am asking myself, why, far heavea's sake, am I here? Actually I have no reply right away. While In Tel Aviv I told my colleagues: Look, there is one mpfhugrner called Unger. He could sUy behind fai Tel Aviv aad yet he goes down lo the front. He knows that everything can happen to him — sad yrl he goet down. One of them, a war-experleaeed friend, snapped tliat I was s fool. Am I really a fool? — By God, I do not know. "True, I am not a lion.' I never looked for bravery, for danger. And yet, when this moment came, when I was given the choice, I felt that my place is here, with the combat people.

I think that It is this that broagbt me onto this armored troop carrier — moving towards the aknewn. I have no fears though there is a natural sense of worry. Actually I wanted everything to come to an end and return safely home. It sounds banal to saf so. and I would have laughed at myself about such a phrase had it not been for the fact that I am on the front, at a place where the possibility of getting hit is real. Nevertheless, I feel that my place is here, whether I broadcast or not. I have to live this experience of the front, of Ibe baUle for life which entolls life or death, to live It here, on the sands of Sinai. To be here is an order of my heart, my logic, my senses. This Is what I feel now, what I think now." And then Rafi Unger noticed a succah on a troop carrier. He repotted that too. And then there wu no more reporting from Rafi Unger. He was killed together with General Avraham Mendler in the troop carrier.

Editorial

Dear Senator Curtis... The Senate Finance Committee is holding hearings this month on the Trade Reform Act. The trade bill which incorporates the Jackson-Mills-Vanik Amendment was approved In the House last December. The Amendment withholds most favored nation treatment and export credits from countries which deny their citizens the right to emigrate. Although there has been some easing of emigration policies hi the Soviet Union, secret trials sre still being held for Jews who apply for visas to Israel. Stiff sentences, raagiag up to five years in prisoa, are sUU bsaded oat by Soviet authorities. Of the 17 members of the Senate Finance Committee, 13 are co-sponsors of the

Amendment. Senator Carl Curtis of Nebraska ia among the four members of the Committee who did not cosponsor the measure. It is imperative that letters be sent immediately to Senator Curtis urging him to support the legislation. Senator Curtis has voiced his concern aboutSbe pUght ut Soviet Jewry. As amember of the Senate Finance Committee, he has an opportimlty to act on his concern, and he should be urged to d(t to. Utters should be seat to: Senator Carl Curtis, 2ZU Dirkseu Building, WashtaiglMi, D.C. Mil. . Further biformation about the legislation is available from Howard Weinstein. Director of Omaha Jewish Community Relationi Committee, 342-3575.

Importance of Sinai Economically, the Sinai Peninaula must rank among the world's most unimportant areas. It contains scant raw materials and agricultural production is difficult. Geographicaliy, it is a buffer between Egypt and Israel but the number of miles between the two countries Is minute when measured by the speed of modem missiles and Jela. Why, Ikea. Is Slaal'so bnportaBt to Jews? Because to Siaai. Moses traasfarmed a baod o( slaves hito a aalloa «f mea. In a synapsis prepared by the Encyclopedia Judaica it is pointed out that the Israelites spent 40 years in the Sinai Peninsula after the Exodus. Forty years, in Uie language of (he Bible, means one generation and Moses obvkwsly did not think he could enter the Promised Land with people who had been bom and spent their lives as slaves. He wanted a new generation, raised under the strain of desert life but in the tradition of a sublime freedom with no ohalns of slavery attached to them, physically or mentally.

Jewish Quiz Box QUESTION: Doct Jewish law permit the practice of artificial In•emination? ANSWER: Generally, but under certain restricted conditions, artificial insemination is permitted between husband and wife. These conditions involve a waiting period, medical auurance that pregnancy cannot occur otherwise, the proper time in the menstrual cycle and the proper meUwd of obtaining and Injecting the sperm according to Jewish law. When it comes to the injecting of a sperm from a third party, I.e., a donor, Jewish authorities are opposed to this practice for j number of reasons. Some contend that this is prohibited because the paternity and geneology of the child WMiM become confuaed, especially when there would be no absolute aasurance as to whether It Is the donor or the husband who actually Impregnated the wife. A second reason advanced Is that the child, not knowing the identity of the donor, might eventually marry its sister or brother who might be bom from the sperm of the same donor. A third reason Is the contention that the child, not being from the husband's seed might seek the Inheritance of the husband after his death to which he la not tedmicaUy enUUed.

Return to Normalcy Haifa — Life is slowly returning to normal .,— or better yet — a new form of normalcy. Best indication are the little things which characterize every day life. For example: Never at a Less lor Words. The Israel tourist guides have a justified reputation for their vast store of knowledge. They tell of one tourist who became critical of his guide who had a ready answer to every question, and the visitor decided to call his bluff. When the big bus pasied the Shalom Tower building In Tel Aviv the guide rattled off statistics about its heights, cost, number of rooms, etc. Any questions? The tourist piped up: "How much does the building weigh?" And quick as a flash came the guide's reply: "With people or without?" Labor EfHclency. One of the city fathers in Safed, seeking to streamline the town's operations and save money, recommended that a certain employee, whose work was not really necessary, should be let go, with full and generous compensation. The man was willing, but the Labor Council objected that discharge could take place only upon medical recommendation. After examination, the doctor proclaimed that the man was not ill enough to warrant discharge, but for security reasons another man should be hired to work alongside him and keep an ey^ on him. Safed ended up with two men on ..me same job. Maybe the Gasoline Shortage? The city of Haifa has just completed an auditorium on Mount Carmel with maximum capacity of 1700. The city is now getting around to preparing a parking space for it — for 120 cars.

Transportation Problems. A Tel Aviv commuter expressed Indignation that be could not get a' seat in a crowded bus, and when he asked a lady to remove her dog from the seat alongside she retorted Uiat she had bought a ticket and paid the fare for the dog, which was therefore entitled to a seat. Hie bus company's diplomatic reply: We'll take the matter up with our legal department to see what the status is. A Minority Party. This one didn't even get on the ballot. On the day for filing party lists. Rabbi Ashenazy made application at the Elections Board for his Kingdom of Judah and Israel Party. Since he had neither the requisite numt>er of signatures, nor the money to post the legal bond, his application was turned down. Election officials said that Rabbi Ashkenazy has made similar approach in every election since 1941. Respect lor Our Ancestors. Guards at Jerusalem's Western Wall, who have been banishing stray cats, have been reprimanded by a local resident who maintains that these are not ordinary cats, but transmigrated souls of lost spirits, who are seeking comfort at the Wall. Proof: sb-ay cats come only where there is garbage and refuse, but the Wall area Is neat and clean. How to Wfai Ball Games. The secret of how MaccabI Natanya won Its most crucial game of the year has just been revealed. An ardent fan of the team, appropriately named Mazal, prevailed upon the coach to sprinkle a bag of dust, which she had gathered up from the Western Wall area, alongside the chalked lines of the field. And perhaps this is why the Wall area is now always swept so clean!

Answer to Leiser Des Moines — The following letter is one of the many responses to Professor Burton Leiser's letter on behalf of the Israel Task Force to the Jerusalem Post. In his letter Dr. Lieiaer expressed the solidarity of the Jewish community of Des Moines with the Jewish ' eommunity of Israel. Having been bom and bred fav England, where 1 lived ^wtn m years ago, I am not bynattre;nordoI

often take up my pen to write to a complete stranger. But I cannot refrain from doing so now, to ten you that your letter to the "Jerusalem Post" affected me deeply. My Aliyah, with a wife and four children, is still fresh in my memory. The past 2^ years have been crowded with new experiences — exhiliarating, heart-rending, inspiring, humbling. Yet today, having emerged from the darkneu of the Yom Kippur War, and with one son in the Army, 1 can truly say diat nothing has moved me more than to feel the cleeenee* of heart and affection whk:h leaps via the lines of your letter across the seas which separate us. It is easy to pay lip service to ideals; but they cannot live unless they are embodied in concrete acts. It seems to me that the Des Moines community is small in site, perhaps, but great in heart. In an age when moral and spiritual values have been submerged, the Des Moines example is a lifeline to those of us living in the eye of the hurricane. God bleis you all. MEiRABELSON.

A tMm c^k-1*.^ 1- A. Mr. Schnitzer is a cofounder and editor of one of the roost influential Hebrewlanguage newspapers in Israel. He came here as a private citizen. Many of us disagreed with some of his opinions, but with rare exception* everyone who beard him felt it was a worthwhile learning experience. NOTE We American* are very proud — and rightftilly so — of our individual liberties and the fact we are free to criticize our government and officials. Freedom of speech, and the right to express personal opinktns are everyone's rights In the United States. However, some Jews are not willing to give these same rights to fellow Jews and Israelis. If one, such as Mr. Schnitzer, expresses a personal opinion, which is not that held by some Americans these people become very upset and demand the right of censorship. We find it difficult to accept the intolerence and lack of understanding exhibited by some members of our community; and find it most regretable. We can only hope that further education and hopefully a trip to Israel will serve to enlighten these people. Part of the strength of the United State* lies in iU diversity; Israel too is a mosaic of people and ideas. Let us hope we will learn to accept its diversity. Roselind Rabinowits.

Congratulations to ORT for bringing something Jewish to the Jewish Community. Surely the documentary film on the history of Jews in Russia, ISth century, to the Jews in Israel, 30th century, was not a first, nor was it unk|ue — but it was excellent! We hear a speaker, see a film, and it's the same old thing over and over again; only it's a funny thing, we always learn something. Who knew about the origins of ORT? We found that not only is ORT important, but has a fascinating history and must have a strong future if it's to continue to be an important spoke in the wheel of current efforts for Jewish survival. The nim alao left us with another thought: In 1N7 Israel had the opportonity to destroy Cairo and Amman, but she desisted. In the Yom Kippur war Israel could have defied the cease-fire and desUxiyed the Egyptian army, but again she desisted. Why? Perhaps it is because for 3000 years Jews have been forced to think only of survival, and there is no room left in the Jewish soul or the psyche for wanton destruction. We Invite comments.

Ferman Paper Published Des Moines — Dr. Gerald S. Ferman, Executive Director of the Jewish Welfare Federation, has recently had published by the Center for the Study of Federslism Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania a working paper entitled "Oatpat 'Analysis: The Distribatiaa at Craala-Iis-Atd itl7-«7 A PrellBiiaary Aaalysis". The paper focuses on a model attempting to explain why some states receive more grants-in-aid than others. Dr. Ferman examines

the affects of four factors: political, bureaucratic, fiscaleconomic and demographic. The analysis indicates that the most effective factor in explaining distribution of grants-in-aid is the degree of state bureaucratic - competence. Those stales which have highly competent state bureaucracies appear to receive more per capita grants-in-aid funds than those with less competent bureaucracies.

Red Cross RepI ies Several weeks ago the Communitx Relatloni Commluion requested the American National Red Qrou to investigate the treatment of Israeli POW's In Syria and explain why the Magen David Adorn of Israel was not a member of the International Red Cross. The fol^wing - excfrpiiire from the reply of the eonaulUnt of the Mid West Region of the International Red Cross "The American Red Cross hat addresaed cables to the President of the Syrian Red Crescent Society urging on purely humanitarian grounds full conformity with the Geneva Conventions, particularly that relating to prisoners o( war now being held by the Syrian Government. We have alao communicated with the International Committee of the Red Cross urging that they continue all possible efforts in behalf of the victims of war, particularly prisoners held by the Syrian authorities. With reference to the Magen David Adorn oriaaUation you may be intanatad to know that the American Red Cross maintains a close cooperative relationship with the Magen David Adom in Israel, u well as with its American afflliate, lh« American Red Magen

David. With reference to the question of international recognition of the Star of David, I hope the following will clarify the situation for you. The treaties, or the "Geneva Conventions" currently in effect, were * adopted in* mt at a Diplomatic Conference; that is, a conference at which the official participants were representatives of governments. The Geneva Coaventloni are agreements between governments: Red Crasi societies are not parties la them. Government representatives at the Diplomatic Conference in 1949 decided that hospitals, doctors, ambulances, and other appurtenances of the medical services supporting armies, navies and air forces should be identified only by the symbols that had been recogniied by earlier Diplomatic Conferences; that is, the symbols of the Red Cross, the Red Crescent, and Red Lion and Sun. They concluded that the use of any additional symbols wotild dilute the effectiveness of these symbols already in use. While th«it is a decision that is certainly debatable, I point out that it was a decision In which the American Red Cross had no part.

Toronto Women Probe Kosher Food Prices TORONTO (JTA) Representatives of sisterhoods of Toronto Conservative and Orthodox congregations have formed a committee to examine all phases of iocal kosher food prices, particulariy those of kosher meaU. One Reform synagbgue also is represented on the committee to implement a consumer program on kosher food on behalf of the Canadian Jewish Congress. Three subcommittees weije set up to deal with various aspects of kosher lood and prices. One on ritual slaughter will study the

relatlonsjp between such slaughter and the price of kosher meat. Another subcommittee will study procedures for collecting information. A third will deal with priorities in (he program. Mrs. Mark Gross, speaking for the committee, said it had no preconceived ideas. She said "we do not know whether the price of kosher meat has shot up higher and faster than that of non-kosher meat," adding that "we aim to find out." She said the committee expected to report to the CJC and to the Jewish public when the survey is completed.

Vice-Presidenfs Report Editor's note: The following excerpts are from a report presented by Fred Lorber, 2nd vice-president of the Des Moines Jewish Welfare Federation. The areas of responsibility of the second vice-president include: College Youth and faculty; Operation 60; Services to world Jewish community outside three major centers and Federation office procedures.

time I sent a letter to a number of Jewish communities suggesting that we get together and discuss how we can together enrich the quality of Jewish life* in the area. The response from the communities was very encouraging. Due to the October War, however, the program was not Implemented. Nevertheless, in the spirit of "Operation 60", during the Israel Needs Campaign Des Moines extended a Speakers Service to the communities in the eo-minute range as well as other commiailtiea In the general region. An extensive study was performed by Mr. Al Upsey cooeeming procedures at our Fedwation Office. This excellent study resulted In many recommendations which have been implemented. In the coming year there is important work ahead in enriching the Jewish experience of students if\ the area colleges amf mifversitles and the quality of Jewish life in Central Iowa. I alao Intend to initiate^ programs concerning service to Jewish communities outside the three major centers (Israti, the United States and the Soviet Union).

In the past year I have been involved in coordination of the College Youth Program at Drake University, in particular, as well as. the beginnings of "Operation 60" and revision of procedures in our Federation Office. This year, for the first time, the Federation has approved a College Program Budget for Drake Univeraity. Thus we are not only providing Jewish college students with a physical place to gather but helping finance a set of programs. In addition, the Federation has provided some seed money for a Jewish Studies Program at Drake University. Evidence indicates that these services are filling an important gap. "Operation 60" —extension of our management and program services to small communities within a 60-mile radius of Des Moines — was Initiated last summer. At that

BONN, (JTA) - A West German court has confiscated posters and other material depicting the Nazi swaatika that were to have been uaed to advertise a new fortnightly periodical called "Das Dritte Reich." The periodical will be published over the next two years by the John Jahn pubUshing firm in Hamburg. The publishers say it ia a documentation designed to isxplain the political, economic and social background to the Nazi takeover. The court has also opened proceedings against unidntUlMl peraoos for the diaaemiiiation and uae of Nad symbols, banned under German law. These actions followed after Nazi persecutees' organizations in West Germany asked the authorities to ban the display of thousands of swastikas to advertise the new Journal. The organizations said such a display is "an insult to the victims of Nazism." Broadcasting stations in Beriin, Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt have also refused to advertise the new journal.

Oldtimers' Review

NEW YORK. (JTA)-The office of radio station WBAIF^ was picketed by the Youth Committee for Peace Democracy in the Middle East after a report that the radio station dismissed a broadcaster for criticizing Black basketball players on the Rochester University team who boycotted a game with the Israeli National Basketball Team. The Youth Committee demanded that Peter Heller, who worked for WBAI-FM as an unpaid sportscatter, "be reinstated as sports commentator without cenaorship, that his censored commentary be aired, and that the Youth Committee be permitted to tell the listeners of the station the reasons for our demonstration." Larry Cox, news director for WBAI-FM said that Heller

was fired because "we didn't like his work, generally," and that the contested broadcast was scrapped because it had injected politics and wa* "a personal commentary." Heller said that he had been hb«d to present an overall commentary and not a rehash or spot-reporting about the week's sports evoits. The Youth Committee, a nonsectarian and liberal youth coalition, termed the station's reasoning a "clumsy attempt to Justify iu action." It noted, too, that "WBAI's broadcasting is Filled with editorial commentary of the most controversial kind. The question is why this single piece of commentary — which was of a liberal and Pro — Israel character and critical of short-sighted antiIsrael actions — was singled out for censorship."
