moved the United Orthodox
Jewish Community to appeal to
St. Louis Jews to stay in exist-
ing Jewish neighborhoods.
Much of the time of the an-
nual meeting of the group was
taken up with the problem and
with a report on it by Hyman
Flaks, executive secretary. He
reported that when there is no
Talmud Torah in a new subur-
ban neighborhood, children of
the affected families "go with-
out Jewish education."

"This fear," he stated, "is
based on a deep-seated feeling

of inferiority in physical con-
flict and military affairs that the
Jews have always had."
Dr. Goheen, writing to the
student newspaper, stated that
the Ponomarenko letter "patent-
ly speaks from blind prejudice
and is utterly foreign both to
the intellectual and moral ideals

sadly persistent fact that high in-
telligence and moral sensivity,

necessarily go together."
The campus newspaper also
printed 10 other letters on the
issue raised by the student. All

The memories of Passovers gone by—the search and sale of the Chometz—Grandpa
poking around the kitchen, making the horseradish and the Choraches—putting on the
new suit of clothes and shoes pockets full of hazel nuts and almonds anxiously
waiting for the Seder to start—Uncle Joe and Aunt Sadie were always late—the whoit
family together—Grandpa looking like a king propping the pillow on the chair beside
him—Grandma tired after baking and cooking all day but "My Malice" my queen, he
called her—the Kiddush and then my turn for "Ma Nishtanah" and the answer given
with Grandpa's voice ringing out over all—the first half of the Hagadah almost over—
even the bitter herbs tasted so good—Passover it was always "strong"—all were corn-
pelled to eat it otherwise we could not get the hard boiled egg and salt water—and
then the meal—nobody, but nobody, could cook better than Grandma—we ate—and
ate and then the "Benchen"—and the rest of the Hagadah—and some more cups of
wine—and the opening of the door—and the stories of how in the old country someone
frightened the whole family by appearing at that door—but best of all the tongs with
which the second half of the Hagadah abound—and the feeling of drowsiness—content.
