Hebrew U. Ups Budget

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A 50,000,-
000-pound ($16,666,666) regular
budget for the next academic year,
and a 20.000,000-pound development
budget were approved by the board
of governors of the Hebrew Uni-
s-/-Thversity as the university celebrated
/ its 40th anniversary here. The reg-
ular budget was 10,000,000 pounds
above this year's expenditures.
The board also recommended an
increase in the number of stu-
dents seeking science instruction,
and urged in a resolution that the
government continue its efforts to
recover and use the university's
Mount Scopus campus, which is
now an Israeli enclave surrounded
completely by territory under the
jurisdiction of Jordan.

CHARLES L. LEVIN, a partner
in the law firm, Levin, Levin, Gar-
vett & D i 1 1, and KENNETH M.

elected to the board of directors
of American Steel Corporation. Mr.
Levin obtained his law degree from
the University of Michigan in 1947
and joined the firm that bears his
father's name four years later.

'Never Forget,' Consul Gen. Barmore Cautions at Uprising Observance

"If we are to deserve the proud
name we carry — Jew — we must
never forget the Warsaw Ghetto
Uprising . . . If the lesson is not
learned, we are doomed." The re-
marks were made, almost angrily,
by Israel Consul General Jacob
The anger of his words was lev-
eled at those who did not want to
see, and those who do not want to
remember, the murder of 6,000,000
Jews in Nazi Europe. Barmore was
addressing the 22nd anniversary
commemoration of the Warsaw
Ghetto Uprising Sunday evening
at Temple Israel.
Barmore condemned the attitude
of those who insist the "Jews
should have known better than to
trust the Germans," those who
criticize the victims' "shortsight-
edness" and those who have put
the martyrs "in the dock, claim-
ing they were submissive when
they should have fought back."
"On the contrary," said Bar-
more, "there was very little the
Jew could do except try to sur-
vive in the face of the Nazis' re-
lentless march." Yet, they did fight
back, at Warsaw, at Treblinka, So-
bibor, Maidanek.
When a German commandant
wrote that over 50,000 Jewish
"bandits" had been wiped out in
the revolt, "it showed us how Jews
must live and, if necessary, how to
die," said Barmore.
Six survivors of the ghetto
and concentration camps lit six
candles, one for each million
deaths, and Cantor Reuven
Frankel chanted the El Mole
Rachamim, the memorial pray-
er, while the audience stood in
Despite thunder storms and tor-
nado warnings, the temple was
filled to capacity, the lightening
outside providing an eerie back-
drop for the solemn program.

Cantors Frankel and Harold Or-
bach were joined by a quartet in
songs from the ghetto. Martin
Rose, a survivor of the Uprising,
delivered, in Yiddish, recollec-
tions from the Nazi holocaust.
A scene out of that ghetto life
was presented in a dance sequence
dedicated to the martyrs and sur-
vivors, "The Last Sabbath." Chor-
eographed by Harriet Berg, and
with music by Charles Davidson,
the drama-dance service featured
solo chants by Cantor Orbach and
narration by Mrs. Orbach.
Sidney M. Shevitz, president of
the Jewish Community Council, in
welcoming the audience, urged
them to note that the observance
comes at a significant time on the
calendar: "before Passover, the
holiday of freedom and before the
17th anniversary of the State of
Israel. It also comes during the
Allied Jewish Campaign, when
every Jew is reminded of his ob-
ligation to his fellow Jews."

Washington. Ed New-
man, however, points out
gradual evolutions in the
inauguration ceremonies.

It was James Madison,

for instance, who first re-
solved to wear o n 1 y
American - made clothes
at his inauguration. Mar-
tin Van Buren introduced
the ceremonial ride the
length of Pennsylvania
Avenue. William Henry
Harrison spoke the long-
est—a solid hour and
forty minutes in sub-zero cold. It's a wonder the crowd
didn't demand his impeachment then and there!
McKinley's inaugural address, incidentally, was the first
covered by motion picture cameras; Coolidge's the first
broadcast on radio, and Truman's in 1949 the first flashed
on a TV network.

Maybe kids study physics too early in life these days. Repri-

manded by his mother for playing too close to the railing of the
family's penthouse apartment, nine-year-old Mortimer reassured
her, "Don't worry, mom! Mrs. Boyden told us in class last week
that a man falling through the atmosphere near the earth never
goes faster than 119 miles an hour!"

In a much quoted literary exchange, F. Scott Fitzgerald is


purported to have told Ernest Hemingway, "The very rich are
different from you and me." To which Hemingway replied sourly,

"Yes, they have more money."
