Impressive Books
Issued This Month
by Random House

An impressive list of books,
scheduled for publication this
week by Random House, is at-
tracting considerable interest.

Major in the series is the
new novel by William Faulk-
ner, "The Mansion." A long
stay in the best seller listing
is predicted for this work,
which is considered by some
of the advance readers as one
of Faulkner's outstanding cre-

An impressive account, "My
Eyes in My Heart," by Ted
Husing, written with Cy Rice,
is being published by Bernard
Geis Associates and is being
distributed by Random House.
Husing's radio activities, his as-
sociation with David Sarnoff, his
experiences with many notables,
are recorded here.

Another Bernard Geis As-
sociates volume of interest is
"The Secret World of Kids,"
by Art Linkletter. The sub-
title of the book is "How to
Enjoy Your Children — in
Spite of Them." Scores of an-
ecdotes will hold the atten-
tion of the readers of this
book from beginning to end.

Among the subjects covered
in Linkletter's book are: to
spank or not to spank, teen-age
biology, the differences between
American and European chil-
dren, the problems of shyness
and aggressiveness, plus two
hilarious chapters of youthful
wit and unconscious wisdom —
"Kids Write the D a r n d e s t
Things" and "Kids Still Say the
Darndest Things!'
Special attention is due Ran-
dom House's "Hawaii," by
James A. Michener. This is not
a history. It is fiction in the
finest and purest term of the
word, yet it is so closely allied
with history and with the de-
velopment of the Fiftieth State
that it could well be termed
an historical -novel. A sense of
reality is given in this 940-page
novel by the appended eight
pages of genealogical charts. It
is a masterfully literary work
and is certain to be on the best
seller list. It is a November
Book-of-the-Month selection. It
is also planned for filming in

o s sy ■ rs.

For 55 years, Prof. Martin
Buber, one of the world's ac-
knowledged philosophic giants,
devoted himself to the study
and teaching of the ideas of
Hasidism., His life-work of delv-
ing into mysticism, into the
folklore of the
"Hasidic move-.‘
ment, into the
ways of the
pietists who
arose after
the Sabbatai
Zevi move-
ment, have
in recent
years, attract-
ed worldwide
interest. Dr.
Bub e r's nu-
merous books
served to
Dr. Buber
draw such at-
tention, and the knowledge
about him and his works is due,
in some measure, to the de-
votion of one of his most
dedicated disciples, Prof. Mau-
rice S. Friedman.
Friedman edited and tran-
slated many of Prof. Buber's
works and has, himself, written
on Hasidism and Buber's ac-
tivities. He is the author, among
other works, of "Martin Buber:
The Life of Dialogue," which
has just been published by
Harper (49 E. 33rd, N. Y. 16),
as a paperback, the book first
having been published by Uni-
versity of Chicago Press in 1955.
The paperback appears as
the first Harper 1960 Torch-
book edition.
At the same time, Friedman
has just edited and translated
Buber's latest work, "The
Origin and Meaning of Hasid-
ism," published by Horizon
Press (220 W. 42nd, N. Y. 36).

Hasidism as "a great re-
velation of spiri-t" is
evaluated by Buber in his
newest work. He views Hasid-
ism as important for Chris-
tians and others, as well as
Jews, now more than ever
before, "for now is the hour

Vandals Break Into
Offices of Jewish
Organizations in Paris

PARIS (JTA) — A group of
vandals broke into the offices
of the Federation of Jewish So-
cieties of France and of the
French Jewish Loan Fund here,
stealing 100,000 francs and dam-
aging the prOperties. -
The vandalism was the latest
in an apparent series of attacks
on Jewish organization offices
by what were believed to be
anti - Semitic elements. There
was no attempt to set fire to
the two offices in the building,
as was the case when the Jew-
ish Agency office in Marseilles
was raided several weeks ago.
Police said that the tech-
niques used by the raiders in
seeking to open the Federa-
tion's safe indicated they were
amateurs bent on causing trou-
ble rather than professional
thieves. They did succeed in
forcing open the cash box of
the Jewish Loan Fund where
they found the 100,000 francs.
The vandals left the prem-
ises by climbing a rope to the
roof but there was no indication
they entered the same way. An
Education Ministry office near-
by was broken into the same
night by persons believed to be
the same as those vandalizing
the Jewish organization offices.
Police have neither been able
to find the criminals nor those
who fired the Jewish Agency
office in Marseilles and, several
months before, the Agency
offices here.

when we are in danger of
forgetting for what purpose
we are on earth, and I know
of no other teaching that
reminds us of this so

Those who search for knowl-
edge about Hasidism, about this
movement of piety, can actually
start from the very beginning
in Buber's new book. He de-
scribes the outgrowth of the
movement, and explains that
"both, Jacob Frank and the
Baal-Shem, proceed from the
post-Sabbatian situation be-
hind which one can no longer
go. The one dashes the under-
mined Torah to pieces, the
other fills it with life."
Frank was the false Messiah
who followed Sabbath Zevi. The
Baal-Shem was Rabbi Israel
ben Eliezer (1700-60), the
founder of Hasidism who be-
came commonly known as the
Baal-Shem Tov, the master of
the good name of God.
Bubei's latest analyses go to
the very root of the question of
the piety movement. The great
philosopher goes back to
Spinoza as well as Sabbatai,
Zevi, in his evaluation of the
Baal-Shem. He points out that
"the reflexion of man to a
Messianic superiority destroys
the unpremeditated quality of
the act"; that "only unpre-
meditated action can be action
for the sake of" God"; that:
"Turning the whole of his life
in the world to God and then
allowing it to open and unfold
in all its moments until the
last—that is man's work toward
The spirit and body of the
Hasidic movement receive
thorough review, and Buber
deals with Symbolic and Sacra-
mental Existence, with God and
the Soul, Redemption, the Place
of Hasidism in the History of
Religion and Christ, Hasidism,

His contention is: "Hasid-
ism explodes the familiar
view of mysticism. Faith and
mysticism are not two worlds,
although the tendency to be-
come two independent worlds
ever again wins the upper
hand in them. Mysticism is
the sphere on the borderland
of faith, the sphere in which
the soul draws breath be-
tween word and word."

Studied supplementarily with
Friedman's "Buber: Life of
Dialogue," Buber's book and
that of his editor and transla-
tor form two complementary
textbooks. Dr. Friedman's ex-
planations of the history of
Hasidism strengthen the views
of Prof. Buber. He traces
Buber's Zionist background, the
influence he still exerts on the
movement, although he has
given up
leadership in
it, and while
his views are
certain to be
disputed by
Zionists, they
were worth
reading for an
of the phi-
tates that
Buber "helped
uide the
learning, and
Dr. Friedman training ac-
tivities of numerous Jewish
youth organizations" after the
rise of Hitler in Germany.
In his interpretation of
Buber's views on Christianity,
Dr. Friedman states that Buber
holds that the faith of Judaism
and that of Christianity will
remain separate until the corn-
ing of the Kingdom.
Thus, Hasidic students have
two powerful, complementary
books to guide them in their
studies of the movement of
piety that has strongly in-
fluenced Jewish life.

ILO Orders Labor
Research at Technion

A research project in labor
relations is to be conducted in
Israel by the Technion at the
request of the International
Labor Organization. This is the
first time that the ILO has
commissioned this kind of re-
search in Israel.
The program will be carried
out .by Assoc. Prof. Jay Tabb,
head of the department of gen
eral studies. It will deal with
the mutual influence of trade
union and management, day-to-
day labor-management relations
in industrial plants, the influ-
ence of such relations on plant
operations, methods of avoiding
grievances and friction among
the workers.
