Miss Burstein Engaged Hebrew Teacher Describes Behavior,

In an essay "The Teacher's Role

in Guidance in an Afternoon He-
brew School" in Sheviley Hahi-
nukh, published by the National
Council for Jewish Education, Al-
bert J. Burke, a member of the

fact that the entire system is atypi-

Princess Margaret
Fails to Woo Chef
From Bloom's

LONDON—Bloom's has won the
Battle of Britain.
The two sides in the much-pub-
licized tout — Princess Margaret
and the famous East End Kosher
restaurant — have been fighting
over Bambos Pais, chef at Bloom's.
Pais, 3S, has declined the invita-
tion from Princess Margaret and
her husband, the Earl of Snowdon,
to cook for them at Kensington
"If I remain in England, I
will not leave Bloom's because
all my friends are there," Pais
said. He has been at Bloom's
nine years.
An Armenian of Cypriote birth,
Pais admitted he would stay with
Bloom's kosher menus "until I get
a nice offer from America. Oh,
how I would like to go to Cali-
fornia and cook in one of those
big, modern hotels in Beverly
Pais said the controller of the
Kensington Palace household told
him, "In case you change your
mind, just give us a ring." Pais
thinks that is unlikely—the palace
salary offer is about a quarter of
what he makes at Bloom's.

group of so-called 'difficult' boys
of from 11 to 13 years of age in
an afternoon Hebrew school.
" "Many of these boys exhibited
aggressive behavior, were resent-
ful of authority and were obvious-
ly using the classroom to act out
their hostilities and rebel against
the factors which made them un-
"In trying to get to know this
group better and to understand
the underlying causes of the ex-
hibited symptons, I examined my
students' past performance re-
cords, talked to their previous
teachers and to their parents, and,
whenever possible, carried on a
close and systematic observation of
their behavior in different situa-
tions. I found particularly helpful
the observations I made in a non-
classroom setting; such as, their
informal play periods before the
beginning of classes and on the
school bus.
"It was my conclusion that many
of the behavior problems found in
a Hebrew school stem from the
fact that the entire system is atypi-
cal. As compared with the com-
pulsory aspects of the public
school, attendance at and attitude
towards the Hebrew school usually
depend upon the point of view of

Pilot Abie Is Hero
. n Festival
of Puri'

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Israel cele-
brated Purim in traditional man-
ner last weekend, reading of the
Book of Esther being observed at

all synagogue services throughout
the country Saturday night, while

parades, highlighted by floats and
costumed children, highlighted the

observances in all cities and settle-
President Zalman Shazar, on a
short visit to Tiberias, attended
services at the Kiryat Shmona Cen-
tral Synagogue.
A feature of m any parades
were floats depicting the peace

mission to Egypt staged last
week by Tel Aviv restaurateur
Abie Nathan, who flew from
Herzliah to Port Said in an ef-
fort to interest Egyptian Presi-
dent Gamal Abdel Nasser to hold
peace talks with Israel. Nathan
was sent back to Israel the next

day in his own plane.
Costumed childr e n, released
from their schools since Thursday,
led most of the festivities.
Nathan, who has been idolized
by many Israelis as a hero since
he made his flight to Egypt, was
the guest of honor of the all-Arab
city of Nazareth during the week-
end. Nazareth Mayor Abdal Aziz
Zuaby welcomed him when he en-
tered the city. Hundreds of Arabs
greeted Nathan warmly, shouting
the word "peace" in Arabic.
He addressed crowds in the
court yard of the Church of the
Annunciation and from the bal-
cony of a mosque.

the parents. After a full day of
public school, not many healthy,
physically active, early adolescent
boys will want to spend an addi-
tional one and one-half hours in
school. It was their parents who
told these boys, without giving
them the opportunity for any de-
cision-sharing, that they had to
go to Hebrew school . . .
"In trying to alleviate the situa-
tion, my basic approach was to
arouse new interest and a positive
attitude through careful and mean-
ingful lesson planning. As a means
of stimulating interest, activities
such as student-planned and di-
rected panel discussions and edu-
cational games and projects were
carried out.
"In addition, I spoke to a num-
ber of parents seeking their coop-
eration in helping to improve their
children's attitude towards He-
brew school attendance ...
"It was important that on the
whole well-meaning parents be en-
listed on the side of positive mo-
"Less aggressive and certainly
more typical, although disturbing,
was the behavior of the slow learn-
ers who expressed their frustra-
tions, in the main, through exces-
sive talking. I found that special-
help tutoring after class permitted
them to catch-up scholastically
with their classmates and subse-
quently their disturbances de-
creased considerably. At the same
time I tried to build up within
them a feeling that they were im-
portant and worthy and, when they
deserved it, I made sure that I
praised them.
"A reality problem of a typical
nature was the physical fatigue suf-
fered by some boys because they
had already spent a whole day in
public school. A symptom of this
fatigue was a reduced attention
span. This was one situation where
I could do little but be patient,
supportive and understanding.
"On the whole, it was my hope
that a friendly, accepting and en-
couraging attitude would give my
students a sense of security which
would lessen their resentments
and thus make learning possible.
With modification in their be-
havior pattern did come increased
academic achievement t o g e ther
with a noticeable improvement in
their confidence and self-respect."

Surplus of Food in Israel
Can Feed Millions More

12 years ago Israel suffered a
severe shortage of agricultural

products. Currently Israel is pro-

ducing a surplus of food. Experts

state that were the present de-
velopment of agriculture permit-
ted to take its normal course,
the yield would be adaquate for
an additional several million con-
sumers in the near future.
Inasmuch as such a population
increase is not envisaged, agricul-
tural production will have to be
reduced to ensure a fair income
to the farmer.
