Brandeis Professor Reprimanded for Outburst During Cuban Crisis

WALTHAM, Mass., (JTA)—
Dr. Abraham L. Sachar, presi-
dent of Brandeis University,
said he had received almost
unanimous support from his
board of trustees in his action
of reprimanding a faculty mem-
ber who told Brandeis students
during the height of last fall's
Cuban crisis that she hoped that
America would be defeated and
shamed before the world in the
event of war with Cuba.
The reprimanded faculty
member is Dr. Kathleen Gough
Aberle, a British anthropologist,
who submitted her resignation

earlier this month. Her husband,
Dr. David Aberle, an American
citizen who is also a professor
of anthropology, tendered his
resignation along with hers. The
Brandeis president said he rep-
rimanded Mrs. Aberle "not be-
cause she expressed a dissent-
ing opinion, but because of the
recklessness and the irresponsi-
bility of her language."
Mrs. Aberle was a visiting
lecturer at Wayne State Univer-
sity from September, 1959, to
July, 1960, and taught at the
University of Michigan in the
summer of 1957.

Soviet Police Disperse Jewish
Groups Praying in Private Homes

NEW YORK (JTA)—Details
about a wave of anti-Jewish re-
ligious persecutions conducted
recently in the Soviet Union,
chiefly through the dispersal of
religious Jews attending "min-
yans" in private homes, were
revealed here.
Two such incidents were re-
ported from Kharkov, one of
the largest Jewish communities
in the Ukraine; one in Gomel,
White Russia; a third at Kolo-
mea, Ukraine.
In each case, Soviet police
burst into private homes where
religious services were being
held due to the fact that local
synagogues had been shut down
by the government authorities
previously. The two Kharkov in-
cidents occurred on Sept. 30,
1962, the first day of Rosh Hash-
anah, and on Oct. 8, Yom Kip-
Kolomea's anti - Jewish raid
while the dispersal of the "min-
yan" in Gomel took place on a
Sabbath, Feb. 23, 1963. At Khar-
kov, the Jew in whose home the
"minyan" had been held, was
given a heavy fine. Previously,

Story of Polish
Jewish Life in
Duvdevon Novel

"Hatzkel the Water-Carrier"
by A. Duvdevon, published by
Pageant Press (101 5th, NY 3),
has an interesting plot. For
those who are unacquainted
with old world life and customs,
with the narrowness of Jewish
existence in isolated Polish
communities, will learn much
from it.
The people depicted by Duv-
devon are unusual types. Only
those who had lived in anything
approximating the era when
there was such an existence
amidst poverty and religious
stoicism can possibly picture to
themselves the water-carrier,
who was an ignorant man for
whom a bride was found, and an
orphaned girl who was left with
a family in the town of Piaski
under description here; the boys
and girls who were trying to
rise above the medievalism of
the community; the tragic life
of the daughter of Hatzkel and
Zysel who finally fled from Pi-
asi and soon sent steamship
tickets to bring her parents to
The Hatzkel story is well mo-
tivated, and the interjection of
descriptions of all the Jewish
festivals as they were celebrat-
ed in Piasi makes Duvdevon's
book additionally instructive.
To its detriment, however, is
the author's insistence upon
using entirely too many Yid-
dish, Hebrew and Polish words
—many of them poorly translit-
erated, the translations inade-
quate, the excessive resort to
them totally unnecessary. Even
though the author has lived in
this country since 1922 and has
been a Hebrew teacher, even
some of his Hebrew words are
misapplied. It is regrettable that
what could have been a very
good novel was spoiled by ir-
relevant material. The plot still
suggests itself for a deeply mov-
ing story.

he had been arrested, but re-
leased the same day.
The Feb. 26, 1963, issue of
Lvovskaya Pravda, organ of the
Communist Party in Lvov, re-
ceived here, reported that death
sentences for "economic crimes',
were imposed in that Western
Ukraine metropolis on at least
four men who are obviously
Jewish, named Averbuch, Aksel-
rod, Fuks and Rosenblatt. Six
others among 10 in that mass
trial who received long prison
sentences and had their property
confiscated were believed to be
Jews. Their names were given
as Kleinman, Kravitz, Langman,
Poisner, Shayevitz and Weiz-

Catholic's Book
Against Bigotry

"A potent preventative against
infection by that insidious virus
of Anti-Semitism" was a Cath-
olic reviewer's reaction in The
Tablet, to Henri Daniel-Rops'
study of Christ among the peo-
ple of Israel, "Daily Life in
the Time of Jesus," published
by Hawthorn Books.
The Catholic author's avowed
purpose in writing the book was
to provide the general reader
with a record of life in Pales-
tine during the life of Christ,
based partly on the social, intel-
lectual and archaeological his-
tory of the period and partly
on his own observations in mod-
ern Israel. The book has been
selected as a subscription book
by the Religious Book Club, a
Protestant organization, in addi-
tion to its popularity among
similar Catholic outlets.
"Jesus Christ," writes the
author, "whom the Christians
worship as God but (whom they
hold to be) also truly man,'
was a Jew . . . He was not only
a Jew by His origins, in the
manner of His everyday life
and His habit of mind, but His
spiritual message had its deep
roots in the Jewish soil of
Israel . . ."
Through his tireless research
and his deep interest in Juda-
ism, the author probes into, and
attempts to resolve, several vex-
ing questions long in the minds
of contemporary Jews as well
as interested Catholics.

The Student Council voted 8
to 7 to censure Dr. Sachar for
"violating academic freedom."
The 262-member faculty who
voted on the matter admitted
that Dr. Sachar "had the right
to disassociate the university"
from Mrs. Aberle's speech to
students; however, it approved
a prepared statement by the
Faculty Senate terming Dr. Sa-
char's reprimand "an error of
judgment that could be inter-
preted as an infringement of
academic freedom."
Dr. Sachar, in his statement,
said: "As president of the uni-
versity, I had the responsibility
to reprimand her." He pointed
"with pride' 'to Brandeis' rec-
ord, during its 15 years of exist-
ence, in regard to faculty free-
dom. He noted that the very
vote by those members of the
faculty who disagreed with him
on the Aberle issue "vindicates
our contention that the faculty

is not only competent in their
fields of specialization but are
independent in spirit and judg-
