"I am pleased to report to you
that the subway in Haifa . is run-
• ning."
- Mayor John Lindsay said these
words at the Israel Bond Chanu-
kah Festival at Madison Square
Garden.
It was the first working day of
the New York subway strike and
most New Yorkers were not in
any laughing mood but the sally
of the Mayor that night made
14,000 people at the Garden laugh.
Incidentally, the Haifa subway
was built largely with the aid of
Israel Bonds and when the subway
was finished, not so many years
back, Sam Rothberg and other
leaders of the Israel Bond Organi-
zation, were honored with the first
ride.
Mayor Lindsay commented on
the wonder that there is a sub-
way "on the cliffs of the Mediter-
ranean." The Haifa subway is dif-
ferent from New York's. Haifa on
Mt. Carmel, with the ocean at its
feet, is like San Francisco and
while cable cars take you up the
slopes in San Francisco, in Haifa
it is done more speedily by a sub-
way.

6,000 Jews in Denmark

COPENHAGEN (JTA) — There
are now 6,000 Jews in Denmark,
and 95 per cent of them live in
the capital city, according to latest
statistics. The remainder of the
Jews are scattered through var-
ious towns in Denmark.
There is only one Jewish school
in the country, located here, with
an enrollment of 150 pupils.
There is also a Jewish kindergar-
ten here, with 50 pupils. The Jew-•
ish community in Copenhagen re-
cently celebrated its 300th anni-
versary.

In ancient days, Haifa didn't
need any subway. Mt. Carmel was
the home of Eliyahu Ha-Navi, (Eli-
jah, the Prophet) and he was noted
for his fast locomotion. On Seder
night, the door is opened in every
Jewish home to permit his entrance
and a special cup of wine is pour-
ed ready for him on arrive'. To
visit all Jewish households, he
must of course travel fast.

With Elijah around, there could
be no strike. Elijah is - known in
Jewish theology as the great medi-
ator, the great reconciler of class-
es. Of him, it is written, And he
shall turn the hearts of the chil-
dren to the fathers and the hearts
of the fathers to the children."
Haifa is quite a town. It has a
balmy climate. Pure mountain air
and the ocean breezes also give a
tang to the atmosphere.
It is great for swimming and
floating and if you wish to float in
the upper zones of culture, there
are facilities. It is the home of the
Technion and the town abounds in
book. stores.
It has a labor Mayor and never
has to worry who will be his suc-
cessor. And he is a charming man.
If you want to meet him, it is very
easy. Just litter the streets a little
and Mayor Khoushy will pay you
a visit and talk to you like your
own mother. These talks have
made Haifa the cleanest town in
Israel.
When Herzl visited Palestine,
Haifa enraptured him. He fore-
saw huge liners in the harbor and
the mountains capped with white
villas and homes. Today his proph-
ecies have been largely realized.
And yet Haifa has one drawback.
It has grown, but not enough..
I recall 30 or so year's back in
Jerusalem talking with the He-
brew writer and poet, Heffman, a
wonderful fellow, who had come
from Warsaw. He was charmed
with the Jewish Homeland, but
there was sadness in him too.
HO," he sighed, "if only all the
Jews of Warsaw were here -- the
bad as well as the good." He miss-
ed the abundance of Jews that
Warsaw had.
People are a great resource,
surpassing copper, iron or even
oil and gold. We may talk about
the dangers of a population ex-
: plosion, but there are assets also.
You'll find them in Haifa and in
Israel.

'A thinker who cannot set forth
weighty thoughts in simple and
clear language should be suspected,
primarily, of lacking talent for
thought and only secondarily of
lacking talent for expression." —
Jacob Klatzkin.

the United States to the Geneva

August, Sen. Pastore said this

Sooner or later you'll probably want to try the

it the one with the taste that makes the change
worthwhile? Why not Tempo? Why not today!
