German Flower Import
Nipped in Bud by Israel

raeli Embassy in Bonn recently in-
quired from the foreign ministry
in Jerusalem as to the reason for
the sudden stoppage of shipments
of flowers to Western Germany
from the kibbutzim of Hashomer
Hatzair and Ahdut Avoda.
Spokesmen for these kibbutzim
asserted that they will continue to
send oranges to Germany but "as
to flowers, this is out of the ques-
tion." The press ironically asked:
"Why do the kibbutzim make use
of German machines, German cars,
and even go out of their way to
obtain German marks—why is all
this kosher but flowers are `trefe'?
Doesn't such an attitude smack to
a large extent of socialist hypo-

Supersol's Accountant
Gets 18-Month Sentence

TEL AVIV (JTA)-1,toshe Hey-
man, former chief accountant for
the Supersol Company, operators
of a chain of supermarkets in Is-
rael, was sentenced by the District
Court here Monday to 18 months
imprisonment for . his part in a
multimillion-pound s w i n d 1 e. He
was convicted specifically of falsi-
fying the company's books and of
conspiring to burn the firm's books.
The court permitted him to stay
free under bail of 120,000 Israeli
pounds ($40,000) until March 27.
Heyman told the judges he
wanted to retract his admission of
larceny but still admits participa-
tion in the plot to' set the Supersol
offices on fire and to forging lists
of stocks. The prosecutor, Eliezer
Leibson,, agreed to Heyman's ac-
quittal of larceny, and he was con-
victed on the other points.
Prior to sentencing him, the
court. heard Meir de Shalit, direc-
tor-general of the Israeli Tourist
Ministry, who testified as a char-
acter witness on Heyman's behalf
De Shalit said that Heyman was
of great service to Israel and sub-
mitted to the court a letter to this
e f f e c t from Abba Eban, now
Foreign Minister and for years
the Israeli Ambassador to Wash-

York will be a dull place."
In 1939, he put on the most
colossal water show yet seen—the
Aquacade at New York's World
Fair, earning him the title of the
littlest Big Showman in the world.
Within five years he produced
"Carmen Jones;" purchased the .
Ziegfield Theater; ran the "Dia-
mond Horseshoe" nightclub, which
formed the basis for a movie; and
served as a director of the Metro-
politan Opera Company.
At the services, Israel Ambas-
sador Avraham Harman read a
telegram from Prime Minister and
Mrs. Eshkol in which they said
that "The whole country and peo-
ple of Israel have lost a good

Two Entertainment Greats Are Laid to Rest


NEW YORK—"I had a feeling,"
said Rabbi Isidore A. Aaron in a
softly light ed chapel, "that
Wednesday afternoon there must
have been a great deal of excite-
ment in heaven—the trumpets
must have been blaring."
Rabbi Aaron of Mount Sinai
Congregation, Brooklyn, was pay-
ing tribute to an old friend, the
flamboyant Sophie Tucker, who
died Feb. •9 at age 79. Nearly 1,000
friends and admirers attended
funeral service for the entertainer
Sunday, and more than 3,000
others stood outside to watch the
personalities in attendance.
Miss Tucker was referred to
as "a • warm-hearted individual
who gave of herself freely to
all. Everywhere she went she
lit a bright candle in a dark
cornier," Rabbi Aaron said.
A tireless fund-raiser on behalf
of numerous Jewish , causes
throughout her star-studded ca-
reer of six decades, Miss Tucker
was eulogized by a longtime
friend, George Jessel.
"The - Lord gave Sophie - many
blessings that few women have
enjoyed," Jessel said. "A full life,
a life of being loved and respected,
from the tipsters to the tycoons,
from the chamberniaid in a small
hotel to a Queen of England in
Buckingham Palace."
In deference to the memory of
the "last of the red-hot mammas,"
striking funeral car drivers re-
moved their picket lines from in
front of the chapel during the
service. Honorary pallbearers rep-
resented actors' guilds of all
faiths and fellow entertainers.
Burial took place in Emanuel
Cemetery, Wethersfield, Conn.,
after a service in Hartford. It was
the city she had left 60 years ago
as a poor girl seeking fame as
an entertainer. Thirty ears fol-
lowed the coffin.
Rabbi Simon Noveck, spiritual
leader of the Emanuel Syna-
gogue, told of Miss Tucker's
visits each fall just before the
High Holy Days to the graves
of her parents, Russian Jewish
immigrants in whose small res-
taurant she worked as a waitress
in Hartford. Miss Tucker would
not work on any Jewish holi-
He told of the year she was
going on an Australian tour and
would not be back in time for
this duty. So she came in May, five
months early, to pray at the graves
of her parents, her brother and
sister, near whom Miss Tucker
is now buried. Among the mourn-
ers was her 'son, Bert Tuck.
Miss Tucker, born while her
parents were en route to this
country, left Hartford as Sophie
Kalish. Years after she had be-
come a success in vaudeville, night
clubs and television, she was still
the neighbor girl, helping in local
causes—a new building for the

NEW YORK—Final tribute was
paid to showman Billy Rose in the
theater named for him. His coffin,
blanketed by more than 1,200 red
roses, rested center stage.
Seven hundred -persons braved a
driving rain to attend the funeral
service Sunday. Rabbi Nathan
Perilman of Temple Emanu-El
noted -in his remarks that it was
"fitting" that the service be held
"in a monument of his own mak-
"Billy Rose," the rabbi • said,
"wore many masks simultaneously,
and in each he proved he had the
quality of a many-sided genius."
Rose died Feb. 9 at age 66 in his
Jamaica summer home.
Sen. Jacob Javitz told how he
had consulted Mr. Rose on many
matters, from show business to
politics. "You always knew where
Billy Rose stood," he said. "The
music of his spirit will go on for-
ever as part of America _ 's music
Jimmy Cannon, sports column-
ist for the New York Journal
American, recalled nights on the
town with Mr. Rose. They had
been "members of the same
lodge of the night," he said. "He
had to have action—whether it
was playing the stock market or
running what he called a big
saloon. Now he is gone and New

Dr. Louis Wender,
Psychiatrist, 76

NEW YORK—A pioneering psy-
chiatrist in group therapy, Dr.
Louis Wender, died Tuesday at age
Dr. Wender, chief of psychiatry
at Beth Israel Hospital here,
established group therapy in 1933
at Hillside Hospital, and his basic
monographs on group therapy
were widely referred to by other
writers on the subject. He was
honorary • president and medical
director of a consultation service,
the League for Mental Health,
which he founded as an "alumni
group" of former Mental patients.
He served in many advisory ca-
A short,- stocky man with bushy
white hair, he resembled David
Ben-Gurion, former Israel prime
minister. Some years ago,' on a
visit to Israel, Dr. Wender was
cheered by crowds on the streets
who thought he was Ben-Gurion.

A memorial service_ for Mr. Rose
was held hi Jerusalem at the same
time the, funeral was taking place
in the theater "to commemorate
the passing of a friend, and there
is no greater name than that and
no man deserved it more," Har-
man said.
Mr. Rose donated most of his
prized sculpture collection to Israel
not long ago and had contributed
financially to the development of
arts there. A Billy Rose Art Gar-.
den was established at the Israel
Museum to house the valuable col-
Most of his estate was willed
to the Billy Rose Foundation,
Inc., a trust devoted to religious,
charitable and educational pur-
poses. There was no official esti-
mate of the value of the estate,
but one executor said that Rose
had once said it "amounted to
upwards of $10,000,000." Some
estimates put it at $50,000,000.
Sizable amounts will go to two
of Rose's four ex-wives, Joyce Mat-
thews and Eleanor Holm. Other
sizable amounts went to his sisters,
Mrs. Miriam Stern and Mrs. Polly
In addition to stocks, R
_ ose owned
large parcels of real estate. His
holdings included the Rose and
Ziegfield theaters, a large New
York town house with many price-
less art works; and residences.
Born William Samuel Rosenberg
on New York's Lower East Side,
Mr. Rose began his career as a
stenographer to financier Bernard
Baruch and subsequently amassed
his fortune through his theatrical
ventures and activities in the stock

Shrinks Hemorrhoids
Without Surgery

Stops Itch—Relieves Pain

For the first time science has found

a new healing substance with the as-

tonishing ability to shrink hemor-
rhoids and to relieve pain — without
surgery. In case after case, while
gently relieving pain, actual reduc-
tion (shrinkage) took place. Most
amazing of all — results were so thor-
ough that sufferers made astonishing
statements like "Piles have ceased to
be a problem!" The secret is a new
healing substance (Bio-Dyne®)— dis-

able in suppository or ointment form
called Prepieration HO. At all drug
