Author Resents
Charge in Review

Dr. Armin Ziemer, 80-year-old
retired minister, whose novel about
Hosea, "Of Love and Fury," pub-
lished by Pageant Press, was re-
viewed in The Jewish News Feb.
4, takes exception to the JN re-
viewer's conclusion that the author
was proselytizing.
Outlining at length the historici-
ty of Hosea's role, stating: "It
should interest you to know that
the background of the princely
_Hosea was taken from the Hebrew
Encyclopedia," he adds:
"I can not allow however your
editorial headline and conclu-
sion that my purpose was to
proselytize and that the Christo-
logical approach reduces the effect
of the story. The approach is
purely historical and your infer-
ence can only be drawn from the
last statement in the Epilog where
I cited the historic fact that the
prophets who followed Hosea 'quot-
ed his language and used his in-
comparable figures of speech, even
Jesus Christ,' which is historically
true, no matter what any reader's
opinion would be concerning the
Nazarene. That it conceded any-
thing at all is in itself a bias that
is uncalled for . . . Evidently the
reviewer does not recognize there-
in his own religion. Proselytizing
is nowhere the purpose of the -au-
thor or the book, and it ill becomes
a reviewer with so little to offer
for his charge. Rabbi Solomon
Grayzel of Philadelphia wrote me
the novel is a thrilling story set in
authentic background."

Oysters in Season!

This interesting story was cab-
led to the London Jewish Chron-
icle by its Paris correspondent:
"In what he thought was a gra-
cious tribute to the Slate of Israel
and its avocado industry, now con-
ducting a publicity campaign here,
the chef of the famous Tour Eiffel
restaurant produced a special: dish:
`Pork fillet a la Tel Aviv.' But the
final prize presented by the Israel
avocado company, Carmel, went to
a Reims restaurateur—who mixed
his avocados with a superior brand
of Marennes oysters."
