El Al Cooks Up Dietary Destiny

An El Al "tasting" session wound up a seminar of caterers from
seven countries that will decide the carrier's dietary destiny this
summer. Lording over it all was Paul Gros singer (of Grossinger's in
the Catskills), El Al's chief food consultant, shown here at a "taste-in"
aboard an El Al Boeing at Lod Airport in Israel. "Naturally, we try
to use traditional dishes and 'Jewish favorites' whenever practical,"
he said, noting that bagels and lox were "smash hits" on El Al's trans-
Atlantic services.

' .-ah which, sewn within

a piece of linen in the coat of a
Jewish prisoner, survived the con-
centration camp, was up for sale at
the Parke-Bernet Galleries Thurs-

commissioned a restorer to open
its linen cover.: The Mizrah was
found in shreds but several weeks
of intensive work resulted in its
successful restoration. . .
One hundred ninety items from
Davidowitz's collection were of-
fered at the auction. They included
ritual objects, textiles, embroide-
ries, paintings, marriage contracts
and megilla scrolls.

Mendes-France Wi ns Seat Again in French Assembly'

PARIS (JTA)—Pierre Mendes-
France, the French-Jewish states-
man and former prime minister,
who has been. in political eclipse
since 1958, was back strongly in.
national prominence this week,
having been elected again to the
National Assembly - as a result of
Sunday's run-off elections.
He defeated his Gaullist op-
ponent in his constituency of Gren-
oble, and is believed to be in posi-
tion to play an extremely promi-
nent role in the next Chamber. of
Deputies. .
Mendes-France, born in Paris in
1907, the son of a Sephardic cloth-
- ing manufacturer whose family
traced back to the Jews eled
from Portugal in the 16th Century,
graduated from the' School of
Political Science here in 1926, and
three years later obtained his doc-

of Paris.
Even before he was elected to
the National Assembly, he served

U. S. Bishops Plan
With Jewish People
`Guidelines' on Ties

PHILADELPHIA (JTA)—New
"guidelines for brotherhoo d"
which will provide new impetus
for improved Catholic-Jewish rela-
tions, will be distributed to all
American bishops in the United
States this month, it was announc-
ed here by the Rt. Rev. Msgr.
George t. Higgins, director of the
social action department of the
United States Catholic. Conference.
Addressing the Institute on Cath-
olic-Jewish Relations at St. Jos-
eph's College here, Msgr. Higgins,
who was a consultant to the last
Ecumenical Council at the Vati-
can, urged American Catholics to
take the initiative in fostering" bet-
ter Catholic-Jewish relations in ac-
cordance with the decree promul-
gated after the Vatican session,
which repudiated the collective
guilt of the Jewish people for the
death of Jesus and deplored anti-
Semitism.
Under the guidelines, said
Msgr. Higgins, many aspects of
church dogma and history will
be taught to Catholics in a man-
ner less offensive to Jewish sen-
sibilities. Parochial school teit-
books, he declared, will in the
future include "a frank and hon-
est treatment of the history of
anti-Semitism" in the Catholic
Church.
The study of the life of Jesus
will be presented, he pledged,
"within the context of Jewish life
in the Firk Century, and Judaism
of Christ's day will no longer be
portrayed as decadent formalism
and hypocrisy. The presentation of
the crucifixion will no longer lin-
plicate the Jews in deicide." Rabbi
Marc H. Tanenbaum, director of
the interreligious affairs depart-
ment of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, represented Jewish thought
at the conference.

Anti-Israel Protests
Mar Eban's Visit to
the Philippine Isles

MANILA? Philippines (JTA) —
Israel Foreign Minister Abba Eban
left Tuesday for Tokyo after a two-
day official visit to the Philippines
which was married by anti-Israeli
demonstrations.
Eban canceled a scheduled
speech at the University of the
Philippines Tuesday morning be-
cause authorities feared trouble
from over 100 placard-carrying
Moslem students and other "anti-
imperialist" stidents waiting for
him to appear. The foreign minis-
ter was placed under tight police
security, and unusual protective
measures were taken after about
500 pro-Arab demonStrators gath-
ered at Manila Airport for hiS ar-
rival Sunday.
New Zealand Prime Minister
Keith Holyoake declared Monday at
a parliamentary luncheon for Eban
that New Zealand wanted to
strengthen its friendly relationS
with Israel still further in the polit-
ical and economic .spheres.
Eban was given an ovation from
the 90 leaders present, including,
most of the cabinet ministers,
leaders of Parliament and church
officials. N. E. Kirk, leader of the
opposition, brought greetings on
behalf of New Zealand labor and
praised Israel's work in the devel-
oping nations.
The speeches were broadcast on
the national radio. network. Eban
also discussed New Zealand-Israeli
trade relations with officials and
addressed an overflow meeting at
the Wellington Town Hall. He then
flew to Melbourne in the personal
plane of Australian Prime Min-
ister Harold Holt for a visit with

lated to the Chicorel family of
Detroit.
He was reelected to the National
Assembly time .and again until
1958, when he was run over by
the bandwagon supporting Gen.
Charles de Gaulle, and lost again
when he tried to come back onto
the national scene in 1962.
His present election brings him
out of eclipse for the first time
in nine years. Throughout thiS
period, however, he continued op- -
posing de Ganlle as a lecturer
and writer on politics and eco-
nomics.
Two friends of Israel and the
Jewish people in general, for whom
many French Jews voted on the
Gaullist ticket, were defeated.
They are Foreign Minister Maurice
Couve de Murville and. Armed
Forces Minfster Pierre Messmer.
Jewish circles expressed their
hope that they would be renamed
to the next cabinet under tteil-
dent Charles .de Gaulle, who;
though weakened, has retained
power. In Fiance, a cabinet mem=
ber may be chosen outside the
ranks of those who are 'deputies.
