May the prayer he composed
By Rabbi Morris Adler
"To declare Thy loving kindness in the morning and Thy faithfulness in
the night seasons." Help us to fulfill in our life this prayer of Thy servant.
May we in the morning of promise and fulfillment recognize that Thou in
Thy everpresent kindness hath given us life and the many bounties we en-
joy. Keep us humble and thankful in success and let not satiety dull our
hearts. In adversity may we remain strong in the faith in Thy unfailing
benevolence and in the justice of Thy acts, though our frail minds may not
comprehend the working of Thy will.
and recited to provide comfort
for others bring healing to
Rabbi Morris Adler and
solace to his .family.
Let neither pride nor despair bar us from recognizing Thy hand in all
that comes over us and enable us thus to attain peace in the midst of the
fretfulness and fury of the life about us.

ME Nuclear Desalination Program
On Rusk's Nasser Talks Agenda
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Secretary of State Dean Rusk may discuss
American-Egypt cooperation on Egypt's nuclear desalination program on
his reported forthcoming visit to Egypt, it was indicated Monday by State
The department, meanwhile, said it could neither confirm nor deny
reports that Egypt has embarked on nuclear-desalination and that the United
States might assist. However, it was learned U.S. Department of Interior
experts and other American nuclear development authorities went to Egypt
over a year ago, accompanied by an observer from the International Atomic
Energy Agency. They reviewed plans and advised the Egyptian government
on a dual-purpose electricity and desalting plant powered by nuclear energy.
Egypt subsequently • is believed to have had a British feasibility study
made, and asked various countries to offer bids on building the plant.
However, while the Department declined official comment on Egypt,
an official spokesman said: "It has been generally understood that any U.S.
participation in such an (Israeli) project would be accompanied by IAEA
safeguards." Officials also said they could not deny reports that America
has decided to link any loan to Israel for the nuclear desalting project with
agreement by Israel to desist from development of a nuclear weapons
The United States will review "in detail" the recommendations of the
study made in Israel on the feasibility of building a nuclear desalting plant
there. But it was made clear that loans to implement the recommendations
would depend upon Israeli non-proliferation commitments.
It is assumed that any aid to Egypt on nuclear development would be linked to
IAEA safeguards, although Department officials made plain that they stressed the
need for an Israeli nonproliferation undertaking because Israel is regarded -near to a
military nuclear potentiality.
(The New York Times reported Monday from Cairo that the United States has
under consideration a plan to help both the United Arab Republic and Israel build
atomic reactors for desalting sea water as a means of heading off a nuclear arms race
in the Middle East. "Under the plan, not yet approved in Washington, the United
States would offer sizable financial assistance for reactors to both countries in return
for their acceptance of full inspection of all their atomic activities by the International
Atomic Energy Agency," the report said.)
(In a statement to a parliamentary committee of the Knesset in Jerusalem on
Wednesday, Israel's Foreign Minister Abba Eban denied that there is an agreement
between Israel and the U.S. about supervisory rights over all Israeli nuclear installa-
tions. Supplementary story on Page 3.)
Come, quaff the brimming festal glass!
Bring forth the old good cheer!
For Esther's Feast has come at last—
Most gladsome' in the year.
And now, when hearts beat glad and free,
Come, gather all about,
And tell once more how, long sincere, He
Did put our foe to rout.
Full oft has beauty ruled a land
And held its sceptered sway;
Full often foiled the avenging hand
And bade oppres sion stay.
But ne'er did beauty so avail
As when fair Esther's charm
`Gainst vengeful Haman did prevail
To 'fend the Jews from harm.
So all the dire impending woe
That hovered o'er their head,
Did light upon their ruthless foe
And ruined him, instead.
And thus, through all the ages long,
In every land and clime,
They chant an old thanksgiving song
E'er mindful of that time.
Yet, Israel's Guardian never sleeps—
No slumber to His eye!
But loving watch He ever keeps
Upon His flock from high.
