Russian Jewry's position is quite a different creature
absolutely hopeless! That's the from the man whose hand
decision one must reach upon explores the elephant's side.
reading "The Future Is Ours, Joseph Novak has great ad-
Comrade," by Joseph Novak, vantages over most who try
the assumed name of a man to describe the elephantine
who lived as a citizen in Russia U.S.S.R He did not wear the
and traveled throughout the blindfolds worn by many; he
spoke Russian; he wore the
land.
Published by Doubleday, this cloak of respectability denied
important volume reveals the to anyone who comes from
"blackmail" climate of the a non-Communist country,
USSR, the suspicions and the and most important he car-
ried letters of introduction
oppressions.
In an introduction to this and endorsement from high
book, Irving R. Levine, former Soviet officials. He was able
NBC correspondent in Mos- to feel and SEE large parts
cow, who now is stationed in of the elephant missed by
Rome, makes this important others."
Levine concludes his com-
observation about the book and
mendation of Novak's book by
its author:
"It's been said that re- stating that what was told to
ports on Russia resemble ac- NoVak "will leave the reader
counts of blindfolded men de- with one overwhelming emo-
scribing an elephant. Each tion: the fervent hope that
touches a different part of the title of this informative,
unusual, and fascinating book
the animal. The man who
feels the trunk describes will never come true." Levine
was referring, of course, to
the "comradely" assertions in
Russia that "the future is ours."

AND NOW ...FOR
THE FIRST TIME

The author describes a
shocking scene on a street
car. A Jew just happened to
rub shoulders with a non-Jew,
and the latter shouted to him:
"You mangy Jew, go to Israel
. . . get out of here, you stink-
ing Jew." The fact that the
others on the street car laugh-
ed was pointed to as an exam-
ple of the deep-rooted anti-
Semitism in the U. S. S. R.

That's the position of the
Jews in Russia who are describ-
ed as frightened, hounded, bul-
lied, their children called "vul-
gar nicknames, beaten, spat at,
harrassed by other children,
tyrannized, humiliated ... "
Novak's account may well be
termed a tragedy. The chapter
"The Chosen People" is espe-
cially heartrending. At the very
outset, one of the persons inter-
viewed asserts: "The Russian
nation is chosen to rule, and
the Jewish nation chosen to be
hated."

The revelations indicate
that the Jews, in spite of their
contributions to Russian life,
are not even mentioned in
the basic reference book, The
Achievements . of the Soviet
Regime in Forty Years Given
in Statistics. "We have been
erased from Soviet reality," a
noted Jewish psychologist
told Novak. "During the war,"
he said, "of the 11,000 sol- -
diers and officers in the So-
viet Army who received the
title- of Hero of the Soviet
Union, about 530 were Jews.
But they have been forgot-
ten.- Though publications
about Heroes of the Soviet
Union list various nationali-
ties, they never mention the
Jews."

the plane to leave Russia, he
was advised: "Be sure not to

concluding message emphasizes

Novak how Khrushchev- carries
on the Stalin anti-Semitic tradi-
tion. He accused Khrushchev of
replacing the old slogan "work-
ers of the world, unite," with
the new slogan, "anti-Semites
of the world, unite:' This Jew-
ish scholar said:
"Until reecntly the anti-Sem-
ites used to talk about 'the Jew-
ish Commune'; now the Jews
talk about 'the anti-Semitic
Commune.' . . . When they fight
against the strengthening of Is-
rael, the anti-Semites promote
the Kremlin policy in Arabian
affairs. Their relationship to
Israel reminds you of the rela-
tionship of racists to Jesus
Christ. Because they doubt
whether He existed at all, they
proclaim to the world that the
Jews murdered Him."

A report submitted to the

Committee on Foreign Rela-
tions of the United States Sen-
ate on the U. S. S. R. and East-
ern Europe was largely written
by Dr. Marshall D. Shulman,
associate director of the Rus-
sian Research Center at Harv-
ard University.
Alexander Dallin and Henry
L. Robert cooperated in the
presentation of the report,
which was published by the
Senate Foreign Relations Corn-
mittee, with a preface by Sen-
ator J. W. Fulbright, chairman
of the committee. The report
contains analyses of U. S.-Soviet
relations and outlines "some
essential conditions for U. S.
policy" and domestic aspects of
the problem.
Dr. Shulman is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. Harry M. Shulman,
well known Detroiters.

An essay by Dr. Shulman is
included also in "Soviet Con-
duct in World Affairs," a selec-
tion of readings compiled by
Alexander Dallin, published by
Columbia University Press.
Dr. Shulman,
who recently
returned from
a study tour
of major Rus-
sian cities, is
represented in
this volume by
the essay,
"Changing Ap-
preciation of
the Soviet
Pr ob lem." In
it he discusses
"not merely
the wisdom of
our policies,
but the ad-
equacy of our
institutions for
Shulman
the conduct of our affairs both
at home and abroad." He de-
clares that "the full measure
of political genius of the Amer-
ican people will be needed" to
determine "whether we can ac-
cept the need for a higher de-
gree of centralization in certain
areas of our national life to pro-
vide for a more rational and
effective use of our resources,
and at the same time vigilantly
distinguish and preserve the
pluralist values of our society
in the cultural and spiritual
realm."
Dallin's volume contains sym-

munities and to allow Jews
wishing to emigrate to Israel
to do so in a resolution adopted
by the Socialist International
Council now meeting here.
In another resolution the
delegates supported' Israel's de-
mands for unimpeded transit in
the Suez Canal and backed the
rights of those seamen who
haVe suffered from the Arab
blockade of Israel. The dele-
gates also called for' gradual
disarmament under mutual con-
trols.
Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion addressed a mass meet-
ing of 25,000 persons who
turned out to welcome the So-
cialist leaders. He said that if
the Council meeting of Social-
ists from Europe, Asia and
Africa "turns out" to be a prec-
edent for further cooperation
between Nations, then this
meeting may become a historic
turning point and may even be
more important than the sum-
mit talks." He stressed that "in
the final analysis it is not the
leaders but the working classes
that decide the world's future."
Other speakers at the rally
at Haifa Stadium were Alsing
Andersen, president of the So.
cialist International, British So-
cialist leader Hugh Gaitskell,
who' praised. Israel for having

of speaking to Israelis. He ex-
pressed the hope that Israel
would learn to trust the "new
Germany."

3 Israeli Policemen
Disciplined for Killing
Jordanian Infiltrators

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — One
officer and two sergeants of the
Israel border police were re-
duced in rank by a . police dis-
ciplinary court in the killing
of two Jordanian infiltrators.
The officer was reduced from
inspector to sergeant and the
two sergeants to privates.
An investigation and the dis-
ciplinary court hearing failed to
substantiate the claim of the
officers that they ordered the
unit to shoot only after the
Arabs opened fire first.
