Letters to the Alitor DEEP REGRET I want to express to the Jewish community my apologies lor the incideni at Joslyn on Sunday. April 20 I believe tlie whole problem was one o( lack ol ctMnmunication. The first I know of the "demonstration" was the Friday preceding when a representative of the U.S. Department of State advised me of the planned "demonstration" and ln(]uired about our security both outside and in the concert hall in such an event. Sectirity of our art treasures is a continuing vigilance to the staff of Joslyn in view ol recent incidents at many museums. The first direct communication I had with a member of your group was when Mrs. Harlan Noddle was kind enough to call on me May 2 and expressed concern over this incident. II was a fine discussion. tHit I am sorry the timing was such that we were unable to discuss this subject prior to rather than after the fact. I number among my doaest friends and most respected people tlioae of the Jewish faith. I deeply regret the incident. > Laoranoe R. Hotgtanil

ill i^raif^l HAIFA - Ten years ago this week (May 12, 1965) diplomatic relations were formally established'between Israel and Germany. In his letter confirming the understanding Prime Minister Levy Eshkol pointed out that tlie decision had been taken "against a sombre historical background and a stormy political one." Only a few years earlier who in the wildest stretch of his imagination would ever have dared to predict such a step? Yet the fact that this could be done, and that the relations could develop as tiiey have in the decade that has followed, constitute an optimistic ray ol hope with respect to ultimate resumption of normal relations with our Arab neighbors once the initial hurdles are overcome. History teaches us that a dense fog ol national animosities, no matter how vicious and bitter at the time of conflict, tends to dissipate under the warm sun of neighborly human relations.

TEL AVIV - After many years of frustration, Israel finally has produced a champion In international competition. The Sabras basketball team, comprised solely of Americans, has been declared winner of the European Professional Basketball Ltague by virtue of the fact the club moved from last" place all the way to the front in just two months. Most of the players are nonJewish. The coach. Herb Brown is Jewish. The team, youngest In the five-country loop, got off to a

poor (2 wins, 7 losses) start mainly because the early games were on the road. In addition. Coach Brown, fresh from the college ranks, insisted on a pattern-style game with little allowance for freelancing, wliich took some getting used to.

Bsnkeroftlit AaMnctn Revolution • Patriot

Haym Salomon wss • fervent patriol whoie love of lil>erty and biuinen acumen combined (o make him the financial hero in the War of Independence. Born in Poland in 1740, he wat forced (0 flee thai country in 1772, due to hit fi|ht for freedom, along with Pulaski and Koiciuiko who became military heroes of the Revolution.

SakMnon: "He negotiated for Robert Morris all the loans raised in France and Holland, pledged hit personal faith and fortune for enormous amounts, and personally advanced large sums to such men as James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Baron Steuben, General St. Clair and many other patriot leaders who teatiScd that without his aid they could not have carried on the cause."

Salomon prospered from the very start in America, doing business with wealthy loyalists while joining the Sons of Liberty, a group of revolutionary patriots. He was twice arrested by the British but managed to escape execution both times; finally fleeing to Philadelphia. Salomon's reputation for honesty and tkill in trade, especially foreign, attracted Robert Morris, then Superintendent of Finance, who called on him for help in raising money to wage the war, and later to save the emerging nation from financial collapse. Morrii' diary indicates some 73 transactions were made by the two men between August 1781 and April 1784. As President Calvin Coolidge said of Haym

Salomon's place in history is memorialized by a 20-foot high statue staitding at Wabatj) and Wacker in Chicago. Unveiled in 1941, the statue depicts three great Revolutionaries, George Washington in the middle, flanked by Robert Morris and Haym Salomon. It it a telling tribute to the Jewish-American patriot whose life wat dedicated to his family, friends and country.

DES MOINES - Des Moines' Sidney Rubin was honored by the National Conlerence of Christians and Jews at the annual banquet April 29 In accepting the award, Rubin enlightened the audience on the structural organization of the Jewish community and expressed his view of the Jewish attitude towards Israel. "Aa true Willi all Americans, we come from immigrant stock," he began. "The first settlers came to Des Moines around the mid laoo's .We were the lucky ones. We found a land that welcomed us, that gave us an opportunity to achieve, and the freedom to participate in a culturally pluralistic society. Thoae who remained behind in Europe were systematically sought out to be persecuted or elimtaiated because of their Jewish origin.

Rubin continued. He outlined services provided by the Jewish Welfare Federation — "the central addiesa of lite Jewlsli communis" — including the Iowa Jewish Home, Bureau of Jewish Edocation, Jewish Family Services, Jewish Community Center and Community Relations Commission. In speaking of Israel, Rubin commented, "The lives of all of us have been touched by the rebirth of our people, embodied in the Slate o( Israel. We view with great pride our Jewish responsibility to help in the settlement of immigrants and to participate In providing (or health care. ediKation and general welfare (or our people, In Israel, or wherever they may be. "We are grateful that here in America our government and the American people in general have rseovdsed a strong commitment lo the survival oi Israel. This commitment is based, of course, upon a strong moral principle - that a national people have a right lo life. "But our commitmenl to Israel goes even deeper. We realize thai it Is In the best interest of the United States that there be a strong and viable larael In the Middle Eaat. We recognize In Israel a alrong democracy, a depen' dable and stable ally, a true frtqnd,. located la . a . iposi

The notice of the burial of the child from Sutton supports the fact that this setUement of Jews really did take place, though we can assume It was of short duration. Mr. and Mrs. S.

Lubavftch Comes to DM By Rabbi Maraball Berg DES MOINES - On April 22, Rabbi Moshe Feller, a director of the Lubavitch House in Minneapolis, came to Des Moines for a "farbrelng." We discussed the possibilities of bringing a little more YIddlslikelt to our city. Lubavitch believes that every person has a pure inner spark. Every Individual has Infinite value. One Idea brought forward that has a great deal of merit would be to have a Lut>avitch couple come to live In Des Moines for at least a year. This couple would kindle the spark of all those with wlmm they would make contact. Lubavitch thiesn't wait for people to come to them, They go everywhere, anytime, seeking our brethren and sisters in the far flung places in the Midwest. The approach

is always one of warmth, kindness, and love; doing one little MITZVAH to dispel the darkness. The Lubavltcher Rebbe has urged every Jewish man, woman, and child to help bolster these mutual spiritual defenses, by participating in a five-pronged MITZVAH PROGRAM: 1. Having a proper MEZUZA on all doors. 2. The MITZVAH of TEFILLIN 3. Set regular periods of TORAH-STUDY. 4. Giving TZEDAKA (diarity), especially by having a PUSHKEH in every Jamie. 6. Havbig SEFORIM (Torah-lxwks) at home, especially a CHUMASH (Hebrew Bible) SIDDUR (Prayer book) and TEHILLIM(Psalm«).

Two AJC Bibliographies Available at Federation DES MOINES - Two bibliographies published by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), a pioneer U.S. human relations agencyfounded In 1906, to protect the civil and religious rights of Jews everywhere are available free of charge at the Des Moines Jewish Welfare Federation office. One pamphlet lists actual AJC publications, available at nominal cost from AJC; others are obtainable in the Federation office and cover such variant topics as religious history and traditions, Intergroup relations, the pursuit of equality, roots of prejudice and world Jewish problems.

Just aa important, Omaha Public Power District produces enough electricity (o help you live in the clean, convaniani, comfortable world electricity providea But this doesn't happen by chance We work and plan lor the future. Your electrical luture Our aim is lo anticipate your needs sufficiently tar in advance to. enable us to meet those requirements and in the most economical mnd efficient way possible Tomorrow will bring t#o new generating units In 1974. we awarded contracts for a 575,000kllowalt coal-fired generating station. It will be located south ol Nebraska City on the Missouri River The planf is estimated to cost $269,000,000 Completion is scheduled for 1979 A final decision was made Iste last year to proceed with a l.tSO.OOO-kiiowatt nuclear unit to be built at the Fort Calhoun Station Under the coownership agreement, OPPO and the Nebraska Public Power District would each own up to 50% of tl>e plant We t>eitevo that such a sharing agreement is in the best interest of the customers of the state In producing electricity, the larger the nuclear plant and the more-electncity generated, the more economical the energy becomes And that's what we are all concerned at>out Sufficient energy at a cost you can afford

During the first calendar year of operation, the District's Fort Calhoun Station No. 1 produced 2,404.000,000 kilowatt hours ol electricity. That's 54% ol all the electricity our customers used Today we're wortiing lor a eleanar tomorrow Large expenditures are t>eing made to protect air quality The construction of the North Omaha Power Station's flue gas treatment system is continuing. The District will spend a total of S31.000,000 on the system which will remove more than 99% ol the dust particles created at the plant. Meanwhile, inflation has increased the cost ol practically everything the District uses As^ result. rates were increased in order to meet the costs of money, material, and services This additional revenue will facilitate the financing of our new generating units. Even so, OPPD's rates are substantially lower than they were when the District waafounded The directors, management, and all employees of the District are determined to continue the high standard of electric service which the District has provided in the past Every possible effort is being made to maintain an ample supply of electricity lor our customers and to keep our rates as low as possible For a free copy of the 1974 OPPD Annual Report, write to; OPPD Treasurer's Office 1623 Harney Street Omaha.

The final game of the series saw Israel lead by as much as 30 points en route to a I18-»4 victory. The Israeli public has received the team very well and the players have also taken to Israel. But success will take its toll: It appears quite likely that live Satyras will get trials by NBA and A^A clubs — one player in (act has already lieen sold to the ABA SpiriU of St Louis and Sabras management, though pleased with the good fortune of both the team and its players, will face a complete rebuilding jot).

Undaunted, they emptied their canoes and climbed back in. Alter one such "sinking" we picked up one of the young girls in our canoe. As we continued toward shore, we neared a huge tree in the river. Somewhat apprehensively tlie girl pointed out the object. I assured her there was "plenty of time to avoid It." "I know," ahe squealed. "But tliat'i Just what my father said."
