The Ussishkin biography by

Kling traces the early affiliation
with the Hoveve Zion, his collabo-
ration with Herzl, his opposition to
the Uganda proposal for the estab-
lishment of an African Jewish
settlement.
He was always the strong man
— was called "the man of iron,"
yet, as the biographer shows, there
was a warm, a human, a soft side
to him.
He was the political activist,
yet he was always the Ahad Ha-
Amist who was striving for cul-
tural values in Zionism. Therefore
he was among the most active
supporters of the movement for
the Hebrew University and sup-
ported many literary projects.
He had an affection for Jabo-
tinsky and he was deeply grieved
when the Revisionist leader died
in 1940.
At one point, Ussishkin was "a
mighty warrior who, through his
vision and leadership, won his
Place among the immortals of the
Eternal People," he was "one of
the catalytic agents . . . one of
the outstanding personalities in
every enterprise which led toward
the rejuvenation of the Jewish
people in its historic homeland."

`Puzzle-Paradox'
Collection Fills
Book by O'Beirne

A similar photo was taken at the home of the late Mr. and Mrs.

acquisition of the Emek through the Jewish National Fund.

"Puzzles and Paradoxes" by T.
H. O'Beirne, published by Oxford
University Press (417 5th, NY 16),
is exactly what the title indicates,
a volume replete with puzzle and
paradoxes.
But while it contains the lighter
vein material, it is a serious book,
and for mathematicians it repre-
sents a challenge.
The a u t h o r, a distinguished
Scotish mathematician, deals with
puzzles that will require geometri-
cal and mathematical solutions—
even by the very skilled. He de-
votes himself to discussions of
false coins and trial balances, race
track problems and scores of other
subject that turns the gamut of
geometery into puzzles.
There also is the astronomic
element and the calendar is un-
der analysis. He explains the
Passover occurrence on the lunar
calendar and he indicates that
"as time progresses, it becomes
increasingly necessary to take
note of the facts that the year
does not contain an exact num-
ber of lunar months, and that
neighbor of the latter periods.
contains an exact number of
days."
A wealth of information is in-
corporated into this book, and un-
der puzzles, studded with para-
doxes, are compiled facts of great
interest, with special value to the
mathematician-astronomer.

Lubavitcher Rebbe Hits
Use of Abridged Bibles
in Jewish Schools

NEW YORK — "If we really
want 'to cultiate in our Jewish
children the proper regard fdr the
sancity of the Divine Torah and
its value as being 'our very life
and the length of our days,' educa-
tors must cease teaching them from
a mutilated Humash (Bible), one
that has been 'cut to size' by an
`educator' who himself lacked the
proper attitude and feeling toward
the Torah and its Mitzvoth, or who
was *utterly misguided," said the
Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Mena-
chem M. Schnerson, in a statement
them M. Scheneerson world head-
quarters here.
In a strong appeal to Jewish edu-
cators at the approach of the new
school term, the rebbe in his state-
ment criticized the use of the
aitzur Humash' (abridged Bible)
in Jewish schools.
