Mail Absentee Ballots Today Ja cobs-lish ovitch

To be valid, absentee ballots must be mailed today. Rites
Application for absentee ballots_can still be made
at the City Clerk's office in the Cffy-County Building
all day today.
Application blanks appeared in the last two weeks'
issues of The Jewish News and also have been distributed
by Jewish organizations and by candidates for political
office. They can be filled in and presented at the City
Clerk's office and ballots secured and cast while there.
John Smith, Acting Director of Elections, stated on
Wednesday that as of Tuesday evening only 6,000
Absentee Voter's ballots had been received. But on
TueSday alone 1,100 ballots arrived, and Smith predicts
that ballots as of Wednesday will arrive at the rate of
a thousand a day, boosting the total number of absentee
voters, due to Rosh Hashanah, to 10,000 or more.
Thousands of absentee voters also are being ac-
counted for in Oakland County and other parts of the
State.

Claims of Discovery of Bar Kokba
Letters Called Fiction by Zeldin,

In an article in the current
issue of Jewish Quarterly Re-
view, entitled "The Fiction of
the Bar Kokba Letters." Dr.
Solomon Zeitlin challenges the
accuracy of claims that origin-
al Bar Kokba letters were found
by Prof. Yigal Yadin at the
Ein Gedi area near the Dead
Sea. Dr. Zeitlin states in his
article: ,
"If this letter had been writ-
ten by Bar Kokba• one wonders
why there is no appeal to the
Jews to rise in revolt against
their oppressors the Romans as
did the Hasmoneans and the
leaders of the Great Revolt in
66-70," .
"The publicity spread over
the world regarding the great
discovery of the Bar Kokba
letters was in the manner of
Hollywood. To reiterate, the
letter eleven was never written
by. Bar Kokba. We trust that
Professor Yadin will give us
photostats of all of the letters
discovered both last year and
this year so that we shall then
be able to render an opinion
about their antiquity. Without
photostats no one, not even the
archaeologists, have the right
to herald a great discovery of
letters by Bar Kokba.
"The term rabbenu prefixed -
to the name of a person should
be a warning to the archaeol-
ogists that they should first
make a study of the literature
of that period before announc-
ing the discov ry of important
