Announcing the personnel of his

BONN (JTA) — An official of a
commission of the Bundestag, the
lower house of the West German
Parliament, said that the question
of whether extremist pamphlets
and newspapers published in West
Germany could be prosecuted was
now under examination.
His statement followed publica-
tion of an interior ministry report
showing that there had been a
slight increase in right-wing
forces in West Germany in 1965
and a considerable rise in the cir-
culation of rightist newspapers,
some of them outright anti-Semitic
II. Schmitt - Vockenhausen,
chairman of the Bundestag Com-
mission of the Interior, also said
that he felt the extreme
right-wing organizations were not
an "acute danger" to the consti-
tutional order of the federal
republic. He added he had found
no evidence of a general trend
toward extremism among refu-
gee and expellee organizations.
The Office for the Protection of
the Constitution in Cologne said
that nearly half of the reported
extremists belong to the National
Democratic Party. Interior Minis-
ter Paul Lueker referred to the
party in his report without naming
it. He said it attempts to adapt
itself outwardly to changing politi-
cal conditions of the postwar
generation and now no longer was
openly promoting Nazi ideas.
The Mina and Theodore Barg-
man Memorial Lectures are open
to the public at no charge.
Dr. Holtz was ordained and
received his doctor of Hebrew
literature degree at the Semi-
nary. A graduate of the Herzliah
Hebrew Teachers Institute, he
was Cyrus Adler scholar while
attending the seminary in 1958
and received the Hebrew litera-
ture prize that year.
Rabbi Holtz was a member of
the Teachers Institute faculty that
led the first Israel Summer Sem-
inar of Camp Ramah in 1962. The
following year he was appointed
director of the seminar in Israel,
and in 1964 directed the first

MISS MYRA ERNSTEIN
Example of Ludicrousness
`Among Our Own Ludicrous'
Editor, The Jewish News:
I have read with interest your
editorial "Our • Own Ludicrous
Among the Rightists" in your
March 4 issue. The statement "In
truth, none of these demonstra-
tions calls for despair in our own
ranks" is appropriate.
However, such demonstrations
often annoy and even irritate. To
illustrate. For several years, I have
been soliciting for the AJC in
a certain public institution. Thank
God, the majority of the Jewish
employes there respond favor-
ably. Some refuse. Once in a while
I receive a nasty "no." The nasti-
est refusal I ever got was from a
mother. It consisted of two words
only: "not interested" scribbled on
a note and attached to a brochure
which depicted the sick, the dis-
abled, and the needy the world
over helped by the AJC.
Here is a classic example of
"Our Own Ludicrous." I asked
once an individual to participate in
an important community project.
His unexpected reply was, "Don't
you know I am not Jewish?"
"Have you converted?" I asked.
"No," was his reply. He continued,
"The Jews are not a race, racially
I am not Jewish; the Jews are not
a nationality, nationally I am not
Jewish; the Jews are a religious
group, I am not religious, conse-
quently I am not Jewish."

Neiv Crisis in Israel? It's Trefe TV
BY CHARLOTTE HYAMS
Scene: Boardroom of RZA Broad-
Chairman DJ: Gentlemen, you
know why you have been
asked here today. We are in
the midst of a serious crisis in
Israel. Television has been ex-
communicated by the Naturei
Karta, and our ratings are ser-
iously threatened. Are we go-
ing to take this lying down?
HP: We could cancel our pilot film
"Purim Place," DJ.
DJ: RJ, just how will our Israel
business be affected by this
RJ: Well, there's no telling DJ. It's
not that excommunication is
so bad, but they're calling TV
trefe, too. That could butcher
our business, DJ.
DJ: What are the figures on our
Israel business so far?
RJ: Well, there's a farmer living
near the Gaza Strip who's get-
ting our sign-off out of Cairo,
and some little old lady in
A greased mouth cannot say no.
DJ; Thank you, RJ. Now just what

so offensive in television? Vio-
26—Friday, March 11, 1966
lence? HP, you were there.
Tell us, do they object to the
violence on TV?
HP: Well, DJ, I think that's a
fair assumption. Last Satur-
day, I did a poll there on
that very subject, and they
overturned my car and
stoned it. Yes, I think they
object violently to violence.
Spirits are low on the home front. You glance at your second-In-
command. She's ready for some "R & R." The troops have gotten
to her. Your tactic? March into one of the Sheraton-Cadillac's three
dining rooms. Prepare to get your fill of battle.
You'll be assaulted by an army of over 50, led by the dauntless
Commander Hagen—the chef recently decorated as an honorary
member of Canada's Chefs de Cuisine and victor of such victual
battles as'the Culinary Art Show, where he won the Golden Chef Hat
(liberally encrusted with "scrambled eggs").
The Commander's battle proven company consists of the sauce
squad (five men dedicated to providing cover for the brave fellows
closest to the meat of the fray), the 6 fry cooks, 4 roast cooks, and
4 cold meat cooks. There are 2 soup men (they're dynamite) and the
Commander's three ."butchers" (a term of endearment, we assure
you). Augmenting this barrage are the Motor Bar's 3 cooks, 2 Ice-
cream cooks, 2 bakers, a pastry chef, an icing man, a pieman, 2 French
pastry and vegetable cooks, a dietician, a personnel chef and 17
pantry girls for bringing up reinforcements.
Next time you and your stomach plan an attack, launch, it at the
Sheraton. Get set to lose the Battle of the Bulge. Respectfully, the
Sheraton-Cadillac, Detroit's largest, most accommodating hotel.
DJ: Mark that down, someone:
"Object to violence." But
surely that can't be their only
HP: Well, frankly, sir, they think
television is possessed of the
DJ: Hmmm, for a simple people
they have good critical judg-
ment. How is television doing
elsewhere in Israel, HP?
HP: DJ, it's going great guns. The
ratings for first-grade English
are fantastic. "Purim Place"
wouldn't stand a chance.
