Hilarious Story Announce Troth
About an Israeli of Berta Weinberg

"Mahaschavi in Peace and
War" is an innocent sounding
title. It turns out to be a truly
funny story about an Israeli
chicken farmer who becomes a
soldier and is enlisted in his
country's defense.
M. Y. Ben-Gavriel, the novel-
ist, a native of Vienna, son of
a doctor, whose forefathers
were Carpathian farmers, has a
fine understanding of a farm-
er's psychology, and he has
incorporated it in this book,
which has just been published
by Citadel Press, 222 Fourth,
N. Y. 3.
The author's background, in
the military sense, is further
traced to the fact that he was
attached to the Turkish army
and was an Austrian unit com-
mander in Jerusalem. Further-
more, he was a foreign cor-
respondent in Jerusalem. Then
he served in the Haganah.
During World War II he served
with the British forces. He was
wounded in Israel's War of In-
dependence in 1948. H. now is
a correspondent for Europeon
newspapers in Israel.
The publishers report that
his book already has appeared
in German, Dutch, British and
German, as well as Israeli, edi-
tions. His earlier works were
burned by the Nazis.
Mahaschavi is an interesting
chicken farmer-soldier. He puts
life into his activities, and the
village of Kfar Haggiborim
takes on new aspects when he
Settles there. The same effects
are felt in the army circles.
Mahaschavi has the knack of
making the Ten Commandments
a new political platform. He
conducts his own wa — he has
to have things his way. That is
how he manages to save a com-
rade from Arab bandits. That
is how he supervises the mili-
tary police when the Zagazig
brothel is involved.
He is an Israeli "sad sack."
His story will delight many
