Tel Aviv Dedicates
Novel Glass Museum

The Ideal Teacher


The Museum of Glass, which
will permanently house the mil-
lion dollar ancient glass collec-
tion of the late Dr. Walter
Moses, was dedicated in Tel
Aviv as the first of 14 buildings
projected for the Museum
Ha'aretz (the Museum of the
Land), the archaeological mu-
seum of Tel Aviv.
The new Glass Museum, one
of three in the world entirely
dedicated to glass—the others
are in Corning, N. Y., and Mur-
ano, Italy—was made possible
by a gift of the late Louis M.
Rabinowitz, of New York, to the
America-Israel- Cultural Foun-
dation, which was added to the
funds and land made available
by the city of Tel Aviv.
The museum is located on
about 30 acres running along
the northern banks of the River
Yarkon, adjacent to a beauti-
fully planted public gardens
and park. Near the Glass
Museum, and eventually to be
connected to it by a small
bridge, are the excavations of
Tel-Quassile, reputed to be the
ancient harbor site of the old
Jewish Kingdom.

Seize Student Paper
of Fascist Group

latest issue of "Forum Acade-
micum," the monthly organ of
the General Students Commit-
tee of Heidelberg University,
was confiscated on a court
order holding that the publica-
tion has "attacked the honor
and personal rights" of a self-
styled students' fascist or-
"Forum Academicum" has
published an article, entitled
"Brown Shirts Are Being Worn
Again," saying that the student
fascist group is "engaging in
anti-democratic and anti-Semi-
tic" activities through its own
mimeographed paper, entitled
"Student and Volk."
In that paper, the fascist stu-
dents have published numerous
articles supporting Nazi racist
theories and saying that the
figure of 6,000,000 Jews exter-
minated by Hitler was "largely
exaggerated." The court held,
however, that the official pub-
lication of the students' or-
ganization does not have the
right to attack the "rights" of
the fascist students.

—Sen. E. L. Bartlett strongly
criticized the State Department
for the stand it had taken in
the issue of Saudi Arabian pres-
sure upon Aramco to discrim-
inate against American Jews in
hiring practices.
The Alaskan Democrat read
in the Senate a letter sent by
him to Assistant Secretary of
State William Macomber, recall-
ing that .,he New York State
Commission Against Discrimina-
tion, which considered a com-
plaint by the American Jewish
C^ngress in this matter, was ad-
vised by the State Deppartment
that a finding against Aramco
would prejudice the company's
operations in Saudi Arabia and
probably adversely effect other
U.S. interests there as well.
"This statement," the Senator
said, "is susceptible only to the
reasonable interpretation that it
was intended as a recommenda-
tion by the Department." The
Senator also charges that the
Department's statement mis-
construed the nature of the New
York proceedings and the relief
sought by the AJC. The Commis-
sion was not asked that Aramco
be compelled to take Jewish
employees to Saudi Arabia, but
to abide by the New York law
against discrimination."
The Senator called upon the
Department to continue efforts
to end the sanctions against
Americans by Saudi Arabia. He
emphasized that the U.S. should
be scrupulous about the rights
of the American people to be
free in internal affairs from
foreign interference and pres-

Yiddish Folks Farein was presented with a certificate for the
society's first grove of 1,000 trees which they planted in Israel
through the Jewish National Fund. The certificate, recently
received from Israel, was presented to Joseph Balberor (left),
president, by William Hordes (center), a member of the na-
tional administrative council of the Jewish National Fund and
for many years president of the Detroit JNF Council. Other
members representing the Farein are (left to right) Harry
Rosenthal, and Bert Seedberg, delegates to the JNF Council,
and I. Bank, vice president. At the meeting the movie, "Forests
Are Born," was shown, and Hordes spoke on Israel and the
role of JNF, after which a spontaneous response from the
members resulted in the planting of several hundred trees,
which puts the society well on its way towards completing a
second grove. Harry Rosenthal, who is also president of Cher-
nigover - Loyever Aid Society, and Mrs. Rosenthal were pre-
sented with a certificate inscribing their names in the Golden
Book in Jerusalem. Trees were also planted in memory of
Julius Herman for his work for JNF. Another occasion at the
meeting was the celebration of the golden wedding anniversary
of Mr. and Mrs. Rubin Coopersmith. One hundred trees were
planted in their honor, and their names were inscribed in the
Golden Book.

around-the-clock struggle was
waged against a huge swarm
of locust hoppers which covered
a 250,000 dunam area of the

headed for Beersheba.
Four spray planes and 12

Negev settlers, fought the in-
vasion, spearheads of which
have already reached the Beer-

municipal workers have joined
the battle.
A number of agricultural
kibbutzim were stripped of
crops by the locust hoppers.
Agricultural experts said that
