"The Golden Cage" is a new
novel, by Tereska Torres, pub-
lished by Dial Press (461 Park
Ave. S., N.Y•. 16). Associated
with it, however, is another
distinguished name—that of the
husband of the author, Meyer
Levin, who translated the book
from the French.
It is an exceptionally well
written book and is ably trans-
lated. It deals with a group of
refugees from Nazism and
escapees from Poland, France
and Czechoslovakia, who landed
at a resort city on the coast
of Portugal, before being per-
mitted to travel elsewhere for
their havens of refuge from the
persecutors.
Among the refugees are
Jews, as well as Jews who
abandoned their faith; non-
Jews, professional people, an
American woman and her two
daughters, an actress and a
group of youngsters around
whom the story rotates.
It is a very sexy novel, with
lots of secret love affairs
among the young people as well
as the adults. There also are
those who refuse to yield to
temptations afforded them be-
cause they are determined to
contract marriages that will be
lasting, unlike those of their
parents.
There also is injected the
element of homosexuality which
is treated with considerable
skill.
It would have been much
more satisfying if the able
author had devoted more of her
story to the over-all refugee
problem and to the reactions of
the refugees. That would have
served a much better purpose
than the over-sexed element of
an otherwise splendid story.
Tereska Torres was a Parisian
until the Germans took control
of the city. She left for Por-
tugal, then went on to England
and joined the Free French
Forces. She went to Israel after
the war, met and married
Meyer Levin and they have
since then alternated their
residence with their four chil-
dren between Israel and New
York.

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Presi-
dent Tito told a delegation of
Mapam to the recent Socialist
League conference in Belgrade
that Yugoslavia's relations with
the Arab states do not hinder
friendly ties with Israel, it was
disclosed by the returning dele-
gation.

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.
tJTA)—Israel is the only coun-
try in the Middle East in which
agricultural progress is not lag-
ging behind the gains ii. indus-
try and other economic activi-
ties, a United Nations report
indicated this week.
T h e report o n "Economic
Developments in the Middle
East: 1958-1959," was issued
by th UN Department o f
Economic and Social Affairs as
a supplement to a world eco-
nomic survey. The report said
that despite unfavorable wea-
ther conditions in several areas,
the value of total farm output
in Israel rose by 16 percent in
1957-58 and by nearly 14 per
cent in 1958-59. Some extension
in the area under cultivation
and a considerable increase in
the area under irrigation-7.7
percent in 1957-58 and 8.9 per-
cent in 1958-59--was reported.
The general index of indus-
trial production, based on 1958
as the base year, rose in the
first nine months of 1959 to
110.3, The value of Israel's total
industrial output in 1959 was
provisionally estimated at
1,940,000,000 pounds ($1,086,-
400,000) compared with a total
of 1,715,000,000 pounds ($960,-
400,000) in 1958. UN statisti-
cians figure to rise in 1960 to
2,150,000,000 pounds ($1,204,-
000,000) if prices remained
constant.
Other UN projections were,
through 1965, a 250 percent in-
crease in output of minerals, a
100 percent increase in output
of chemicals and vehicles, a 300
percent jump in production of
machinery and a 50 to 90 per-
cent increase in "all -ther
branches" of Israel production.
Data in the report indicated
that expenditures from the
Israel development budget have
risen steadily from 35,200,000
Israel pounds ($19,712,000) in
1949-50 to 438,400,000 pounds
($245,504,000) in 1958-59. For
fiscal 1959-60, the outlay is ex-
pected to rise to 506,500,000
pounds ($282,640,000).
Through 1959, Israel received
$296,000,000 in United States
grants; $227,000,000 in United
States credits; and $730,000,000
in reparations and individual
restitution payments from West
Germany. The report warned
that much of Israel's overseas
income "declined in 1959 and is
likely to continue to decrease in
the coming years.

File Claims at Once,
Nazi Victims Urged

Nazi victims who lost prop-
erty in parts of Germany and
in areas occupied by Germany
in World War II are advised
by the World Jewish Congress
in New York to register claims
as soon as possible.
Eligible for registration are
German-speaking victims whose
homes or other property were
seized under Nazi persecutory
measures in Czechoslovakia,
Poland, the Baltic States, Hun-
gary, Romania and also former
parts of Germany at present
under Polish or Soviet adminis-
tration.

Dutch Judge Named
to South America Post

THE HAGUE, (JTA) — Dr.
Hugo Pos, judge of the Court of
Justice in Paramaribo, capital
of Surinam, Netherlands Guina,
has been appointed attorney
general of the South American
Dutch territory.
Dr. Pos is the first Jew to be
named to this post. His brother,
Dr. Raymond Pos, has been Min-
ister of Surinam at The Hague
for the last seven years and, in
this capacity, is a member of
the Cabinet.

United States Committee for
Refugees stated this week that
although the entire U. S. gov-
ernmental and private outlay
for refugees during World
Refugee Year exceeded $100,-
000,000, it was disappointing
that Congress and the admin-
istration had been reluctant to
support commitment., under-
taken during Refugee Year
with adequate funds and legis-
lation.

Story Told of Soviet
Jews' Escape in War

LONDON, (WI )—The story
of how a group of Soviet Jews
managed to evade the clutches
of the Nazi army in Minsk
during the last war was told by
a retired Soviet Army major
in a Moscow broadcast to North
America recently.
The Fascists had been killing
thousands of Jews every day in
Minsk. By the end of the sum-
mer of 1943, the ghetto which
the Germans had established
had been practically empty.
Five people, with their fam-
ilies, had decided to hide un-
derground. During the fourth
month of their underground ex-
istence, their food supplies had
given out and hunger had be-
gun to take its toll.
A Belorussian woman had
come to their aid and to her
"many of them owed their
lives".
The major had found the
pathetic 13 survivors, when his
troop of men entered Minsk in
pursuit of th fleeing enemy.
Sixteen years later, had re-
turned to Minsk, "to find the
survivors living happy, normal
lives."

Hebrew U. to Conduct
Study of World Jewry

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
Hebrew University, in Jerusa-
lem, will conduct a world-wide
study of the Jewish people,
according to an announcement
by Philip M. Klutznick_, presi-
dent of the American Friends
of the Hebrew University.
The new institute, Klutznick
said, is "a concrete expression

not only to serve the people
of Israel but also to be the
university of the Jewish
people."
