In Tribute to Adlai Stevenson

Background of a Name

Adilai Father of Shaphat
Who Lived in David's Time

By PHILIP SLOMOVITZ
There is nothing mysterious about the first name of the
Democratic candidate for President Ad'lai — in Hebrew it
is spelled ayin, daled, lamed, yud — with the kamentz in the
second syllable pronounced sephardically ay and ashkenna-
zically oy. Since Mr. Stevenson spells his name with an ai, the
sephardic pronounciation is the correct one.
The name Ad'lai appears in the 29th verse of the 27th
chapter of the First Book of Chronicles. Here is the Hebrew
text and the English translation.

"And over the herds that fed in Sharon was Shirtai
the Sharonite; and over the herds that were in the valleys
was Shaphat the son of Adlai."
This reference to Adlai was in the year 2720 on the
Hebrew calendar (1040 B.C.)-2992 years ago.
The meaning of "Adlai" as given in the Biblical Con-
cordance is lax, or weary. Nowhere else, however, could we
locate anything either to substitute or to disprove these inter-
pretations. Shaphat mean to rule or judge, Adlai's son,
Shaphat, having been one of King David's governors of a
province.
Stevenson was given his first name by his paternal
grandfather, who was Vice President in Grover Cleveland's
second administration and who acquired his name from a
forefather on his mother's side, Adlai Osborne.
On Sept. 3, 1892, Harper's Weekly, New York, publish-
ed this advertisement, referring to the 1952 Presidential can-
didate's grandfather:

PERSONAL..

THE glCell name ADLAI, which many people who do not
read the Bible became familiar with for the first time when
:Mr STEVENSON was nominated at Chicago, and which is in
very infrequent use in this country, has been a favorite
appellation in the STEVENSON family, and is now borne by
several members besides the Democratic Vice-Presidential
candidate. They spell it ADLEY, however, which represents
the modern 'pronunciation of the word better.than the regu-
lar orthography's-and is entitled to consideration if Professor
FR A Nk•fs J. HILD'S dictum is true—that "any way of spell-
ing is better than the ordinary way."

Thus, an overseer of herds in the lowlands of David's
Kingdom has handed down his name to a man who may be
the next President of the United States.

Ben-Gurion's Faction Asks Independent Recognition

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Former Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion and six
other Mapai members of Parlia-
ment who belong to the party's
minority group who broke away
from Premier Eshkol's leadership
Tuesday asked Knesset Speaker
Kaddish Luz for formal recogni-
tion as a separate faction to be
known as the "Israel Workers
List."
In addition to Ben-Gurion, the
other Knesset members of the new
list are former Development Min-
ister YoSef Almogi, former Deputy
Defense Minister Shimon Peres,
Y. Smilansky, Chana Ladman, A.
Dagani and G. Ben-Israel. It is
understood that former Agricul-
ture Minister Moshe Dayan who
had earlier supported Ben-Gurion
in his leadership struggle with
Premier Eshkol, had declined to
join the new list.
A Mapai Party spokesman, while
expressing regret over the group's
decision to go ahead with the
formation of a separate list, said
that the party would not oppose
recognition of the group when the
matter is brought before the Knes-
set house committee.
With the loss of the seven Knes-
set members from the ranks of
Mapai, the coalition remains with
only 60 members in the 120-mem-
ber house, but expected support
from Mapam and from one Min
Hayesod member, Y. Kessel, will
give the government a close but
working majority.
It is understood that an agree-
ment has been reached between
Mapai and Min Hayesod, the group
of supporters of former Defense
Minister Pinhas Lavon who left
Mapai, whereby two Min Hayesod
candidates will appear in relative-
ly secure positions on the Mapai-
Achdut Avoda joint list in the
forthcoming Knesset elections.
Another coalition faction, the
National Religious Party, Tuesday
charged the Achdut Avoda cabinet
ministers with obstructing the
passage of the Sabbath bill despite
a coalition agreement on the bill's
contents, and warned that it will
take extreme measures to ensure
that the bill is brought before the
Knesset in its original version. It
is assumed that unless an agree-
ment is reached the NRP may
retaliate by voting against the
government on crucial votes ex-
pected with regard to other bills.

TEL AVIV — Deputy Prime
Minister Abbe a Eban accused the
David Ben-Gurion faction of Mapai,
which announced that it was offi-
cially committed to run an "Israel
Workers List" in the next elections

to Parliament, of being "secession-
ists."
Addressing a Mapai meeting at
Rehovot, Eban said: "The gravity
of what the secessionists have done
to Mapai lies not only in the fact
that they left their party, but in
their abandonment of the basic
principles of democracy—majority'
decision." He referred to the fact
that Mapai's central committee had
supported the party's secretariat
in ruling that no member of Mapai
could retain membership if he par-
ticipated in the formation of a
list to oppose the Mapai list in the
forthcoming elections.
At the same time, former
Deputy Defense Minister Shimon
Peres told a group of Ben-Gurion
followers at Beersheba: "Israeli
citizens are being educated to con-
formism. We want changes in
Israeli society. We are not forming

a Mapai in reverse, we are not
constituting a retroactive Herut,
we are not a Stalinist Mapam. We
are an Israeli party, the cleanest
party in Israel. We have no feel-
ings of revenge but of faith, though
Mapai in fact deposed Ben-Gurion,
who is the greatest living Jew."
