Critics Stop Noise as Heart Surgery Commercialism,
by Dr. A. Vineber g Shows Promise Religion Must Be

WASHINGTON — The snickers
have ended, or at least died down
for Dr. Arthur M. Vineberg, a 63-
year-old surgeon who for the last
20 years has been working on an
unorthodox remedy for heart dis-
Speaking at a meeting of the
American College of Cardiology
(ACC), Dr. Vineberg drew a stand-
ing-room audience, and in light of
recent results, his peers, although
still skeptical, had their ears
perked up as the method and re-
sults of the "Vineberg operation"
were described.
Vineberg does not claim he has
a cure, but rather that his opera-
tion at least reduces pain and at
most restores heart disease vic-
tims to normal, healthy activities;
life may even be prolonged.
A senior cardiac surgeon at
Montreal's Royal Victoria Hos-
pital and a teacher at McGill
University, Vineberg was moti-
vated by his father's death in

`Berlin Diary':
Shirer's Book
Still Is Timely

"The Rise and Fall of the Third
Reich" is the great work by Wil-
liam L. Shirer that provides the
most complete portrait of the Nazi
image. It was preceded by
Shirer's "Berlin Diary" and for
those seeking data about the early
stages of the Nazi crime against
humanity the earlier book retains
the valuable qualities of informa-
tion on how the criminal regime
had grown.
Benn Hall Associates (757 Third,
NY 17) have reissued "Berlin
Diary" as a paperback. It is
a contribution to the literature
about the horrible holocaust and
should be utilized by all who are
studying the events of 30 years
In its_ day a best seller, "Berlin
Diary" may now again become a
best seller among paperbacks. It
is an hour-by-hour record of the
eminent author's experiences in
Hitler Germany. First presented
in 1941, the diary's dates com-
mence with the prelude, written
in Spain, dated Jan. 1'7, 1934.
Through Dec. 13, 1940—midnight-
the dairy is a record of the
"totalitarian citadel."
The new paperback should be
read anew. Students of world af-
fairs and of the events that trans-
pired under Hitler will find here
the background material to the
great drama that afflicted man-
kind. There are evaluative ref-
erences to the plight of the Jews,
their flight in the early years, the
anti-Semitic assaults upon them,

1935 from a heart attack to spe-
cialize in heart surgery.
After four years of experiment-
ing with dogs, the operation was
tried on humans. From 1951 to
1954, 12 patients with angina pec-
toris (heart disease invalids suf-
fering from crippling chest pains)
were operated on, eight being suc-
cessful. Presently, with other
doctors in Canada, the United
States and abroad using the
"Vineberg operation" some 3,000
operations have been given since
1961 in 60 different medical cen-
ters. The mortality rate has
dropped to less than 5 per cent,
low for heart surgery.
Yet the majority of Dr. Vine-
berg's peers protest that the
operation is illogical and dan-
The operation works this way:
The left internal mammary artery
is freed from the chest wall which
seems to get along perfectly well
without the artery. The bleeding
end of the disconnected artery is
then plugged directly into the
thick, muscular wall of the heart's
hardest working chamber, the left
ventricle; that's the site of the
most trouble.
Regardless of whether the
method works, it is still debatable
whether or not this additional
blood in any quantity would really
result in more nourishment to the
he art.
Dr. Vineberg thinks perhaps his
operation could aid 2,000,000 agina
victims in the United States. Con-
servative cardiologists place it at

HIAS Helps 100,000
Come West in 10 Years

Brandeis to Give Awards

NEW YORK (JTA)—Murray I.
Gurfein, president of United Hias
Service, reviewing migratidn high-
lights during the past 10 years,
said that the agency had during
that period provided services "to
more than 500,000 Jewish men,
women and children, including
about 100,000 who were assisted
to resettle in Western countries."
Speaking before more than 1,200
members and delegates at the or-
ganization's 83rd annual meeting
at the Hotel Roosevelt, the leader
of the worldwide Jewish migration
agency declared:
"The statement by USSR Pre-
mier Alexei N. Kosygin, regarding
the right of emigration of Soviet
Jews for family reunion has en-
couraged Jews throughout t h e.
world. United Hias always stands
ready to counsel and assist rela-
tives who seek to locate their loved
ones and to help their reunion
through emigration."
Gaynor I. Jacobson, United
Hias executive director, re-
ported 8,800 refugees and mi-
grants were resettled last year
by the agency in the United
States and in other free coun-
Jacobson told of 400 Cuban chil-
dren entrusted to United Hias by
their parents who were unable to
leave the island. "0 u r agency
placed the children on a temporary
basis with relatives or in foster
homes throughout the U.S. We
are happy to report that the prob-
lem was resolved last year when
the last of these children was re-
united with his parents."
A resolution adopted at the
meeting, called upon the Soviet
Union to implement "fully, com-
pletely and with utmost speed"
Premier Kosygin's statement with
reference to the emigration of
Soviet Jews. Another resolution
urged Congress to relax the re-
strictions of labor certification in
the present immigration law.

NEW YORK—Brandeis Univer-
sity will present its 1967 creative

_A ninth award, intended to honor

achievement in the creative arts,
will also be presented during the
11th annual awards ceremony, at
Delmbnico's Hotel, New York. The

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives
And departing leave behind us
Footsteps on the sands of time;
Footsteps that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwreck'd
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Israel Complains to Security Council
Divorced, Parley Told on Syrians' Stalling at Meetings

NEW YORK (JTA) — "American
Jews are in danger of becoming
non-b a p t i z e d, secularized, post-
Christian would-be Protestants and
non-Gentiles," Dr. Abraham G.
Duker, Jewish historian and edu-
cator, told a conference here Tues-
day of 150 rabbis and Episcopal
priests and Jewish and Episcopal
laymen participating in a two-day
parley on family life.
The parley is taking place under
the auspices of the Episcopal
Church and the Synagogue Council
of America.
Prof. Duker cited inroads being
made against the Jewish family,
but said that "despite crushing
change" there was still emphasis
on "the positive aspects of marri-
age and working with the com-
However, he added that "such
negative concepts as juvenile de-
linquency, drug addiction and the
notion of child permissiveness
were making gains in Jewish
The elimination of commer-
cialism from religion was urged
at the conference by Rabbi
Isaac N. Trainin, director of re-
ligious affairs for the Federation
of Jewish Philanthropies of New
York. Doing away with commer-
cialism in religion, he said,
would indicate that vital Jewish
events like circumcision, the
Bar Mitzva, weddings and fu-
nerals "must be returned to the
"The rabbinate and the syna-
gogue," he said, -'must discipline
themselves to reject their partici-
pation in religious ceremonies
which take place outside the syna-
gogue. The synagogue must ad-
dress itself to problems of the
Jewish family today such as, di-
vorce, intermarriage, separation,
the lonely aged and lost youth."
The conference participants
agreed that the family was still a
basic and vital unit inculcating
high ideals among key individuals
who "weave the important fabric
of American society."

Cardinal Bea Leads
Vatican-Jewish Ties

ROME (JTA) — The question of
who is in charge of the Vatican
relations with Jews was cleared up
at a press conference held by
Paola Cardinal Marella, chairman
of the Vatican Secratariat for Re-
lations with Non-Christian Reli-
gions. Cardinal Marella said that
Vatican relations with Jews was
the responsibility of Augustin Car-
dinal Bea.
Cardinal Bea, head of the Secre-
tariat for the Promotion of Chris-
tian Unity, had a key role in the
formulation of the strong declara-
tion on Christian-Jewish relations
which was approved in a somewhat
diluted version by the Ecumenical
Council and promulgated in 1965
as official Church doctrine.
The declaration repudiates the
charge of collective Jewish respon-
sibility in the crucifiction of Jesus,
deplores anti-Semitism and calls
for "fraternal" Christian dialogues
with Jews.
In that capacity, Cardinal Mar-
ella said, Cardinal Bea had main-
tained contact with Jewish circles
since. Cardinal Marella also said
that Jews in a way were "pre-
Christians," and therefore were not
in the category of non-Christian
religions with which his secretariat
was concerned.
