BOOK OF THE WEEK: A book of witty and provocative observations
on Jewish life, religion and society by Dr. Mordecai M. Kaplan, the
venerable Jewish thinker, made its appearance this week timed to co-
incide with his 85th birthday . . . Entitled "Not So Random Thoughts,"
the volume contains observations which will long be remembered and
quoted by readers . . . Some of them are humorous, others are serious,
but all of them are nuggets of wisdom.

Israel Insisting Upon Recognition

of Jerusalem Status by Foreign Aides

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel's
Cabinet approved a proposal that
contacts between the government
and foreign envoys in Israel must
take place only in Jerusalem. The
proposal was made by Foreign
Minister Abba Eban in reporting to
the Cabinet on the need for
"guarding the status of Jerusalem
s Israel's capital." Many of the
Abassies of major nations, includ-
g those of the United States,
Britain and the USSR, are located
outside of Jerusalem, questioning
the status of the city as the capital.
(In the background notes issued
by the U.S. State Department,
Jerusalem is referred to as the "de
facto" capital of Israel.)
Eban proposed also that all
international gatherings and all
activities connected with inter-
national events be held only in
Jerusalem. He said that he would
also ask the Knesset (Paliament)
not to schedule any meetings of
parliamentary committees' for
sites outside the capital.
In approving the foreign min-
ister's proposals, the Cabinet voted
to establish a special committee to
work out details for guarding this
city's status as the capital. It was
decided also that, when Prime Min-
ister Levi Eshkol returns from his
current visit to African countries,
he would reactivate a ministerial
committee charged with transfer-
ring to this city all government
branches that now still have their

headquarters outside Jerusalem.
On another issue, the Cabinet de-

cided to adopt soon a set of rules
to govern the reburial in Israel
of the remains of persons who die
abroad.
This was done on the basis of a
report made by Minister of Health
Israel Barzilai, who said that the

number of requests for such trans-
fers has increased recently, neces-
sitating the working out of pro-
cedures in that regard. The cab-
inet named a committee to estab-
lish rules on this issue. Members of
the committee are Barzilai, Dr.
Zorah Warhaftig, minister of re-
ligious affairs, and Y. S. Shapiro,
minister of justice.
Acting Premier Pinhas Sapir
told the Cabinet that Lt. Gen.
Moshe Dayan, Israel's former
chief of staff, and now a member
of the Knesset, will not be per-
mitted to wear his army uniform
when he goes to South Viet Nam,
where he is to act as a correspon-
dent for the Israeli newspaper,
Ma'arty.
Eban told the Cabinet that Da-
yan's journey to South Vietnam had
been arranged without consulta-
tion with the government. There-
fore, said Eban, the government is
not responsible for the journey or
for anything that may be done or
written during that trip.

Austria to Pay $140,000
in Reparations to Israel

VIENNA (JTA) — The Austrian
Cabinet approved a grant of 3,500,-
000 schillings ($140,000) to the
Histadrut, Israel's labor federa-
tion, as legal successor to the
Hechalutz, the Jewish pioneer
organization which conducted in
pre-war Austria a number of work-
shops and farms which the Nazis
confiscated in 1938.
The money will be used to erect
a seminary for foreign students in
Israel. The cabinet also approved
a draft to satisfy claims of exist-
ing centers for heirless property.
The amounts and beneficiaries
have not yet been disclosed.

It's okay
to wear shoes
made out of
pigskin.

Just as long as they're Hush Puppies. Because Hush
Puppies are great shoes.

And if you're looking
for great shoes, come to the shop

that has more of them (in more sizes) than any place else
in town. Our Northland Men's Shop. It's easy to find .. .
right near Lots "G" and "H" on the south end of the
Center. (It's the quiet side.)

But the whole thing isn't quite as easy as it sounds. You
have to make sure it's Phillips Men's Shop you go to, and
genuine Hush Puppies you get.

If the pigskin doesn't say "Hush Puppies," something isn't
kosher.
