Jews Treated Well Akiva Kicks Off
in Zambia; Fear
. , .......
NEW YORK—Jews are treated
better in Zambia, an African coun-
try that took the step from colony
to independent nation only eight
months ago, than in many highly
developed countries, according to
a leading American educator who
recently returned from a visit.
Dr. Morton I. Teicher, dean of
Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler
School of Social Work, added a
qualification, however. He said
Zambia's Jews fear that intermar-
riage could threaten their survival.
This fear, he said, sterns from
the smallness of the Jewish popu-
lation in Zambia. Totaling only
about 100 families in a country of
3,500,000 people, Dr. Teicher ex-
plained, Jews have little oppor-
tunity to mingle with other Jews.
With the exception of the 'fear
of intermarriage, however, Jews
in Zambia are relatively free of
problems prevalent in other coun-
tries, Dr. Teicher said.
KIRK DOUGLAS, the actor, on
location in Israel for the movie
production, "Cast A Giant Shad-
ow," was an interested visitor
at the recently-opened Israel
Museum in Jerusalem. Here
Douglas examines the display of
menorahs covering some 400
years. The museum is a project
of the American-Israel Cultural
Foundation. The Foundation,
headed by Isaac Stern, is the
American organization w hich
aids Israel's cultural life.

Fiance of Princess
THE HAGUE (JTA) — Claus
von Amsberg, the West German
diplomat and former member of
the Hitler youth movement whose
betrothal to Crown Princess Bea-
trix of the Netherlands has evoked
widespread opposition among the
Dutch people, asserted in a tele-
vision interview that he had al-
ways rejected anti-Semitism.
"I can never understand why
Jews as Jews should be ill-treated,"
he told the television audience. "I
