existence and status, on the need
for justice if there is to be peace.
There are comments by Israeli
and Arab spokesmen.
Appended to the book is a list
of the staff that edited the book,
the reporters and photographers
who covered the war for AP.
The AP book is especially valu-
able for the maps it contains, for
the expressive photographs. It
will remain an important part of
a valuable library of books deal-

ing with the shortest and most
dramatic war in history.

Danny Kaye makes his entrance to entertain 500 children at
Jerusalem's Bakka Settlement House, a project of the Mizrachi
Women's Organization of America. With him are the bearded vice-
mayor of the city, Rabbi Shaar Yishuv Cohen, and, center, Gedaliah
Shreiber, director of the institution which survived the recent shell-
ing, but was damaged by shrapnel. In preparation for the American
comedian's visit children in the wood-working interest group of the
settlement house constructed a replica of the Wailing Wall as a
wooden mosaic plaque. Kaye left, the "wailing wall" under his arm,
for London and rehearsals of a new play. "Now," he quipped to
underprivileged children lining the streets of the new.immigrant
neighborhood, "you know that I'm Jewish." He had earlier told
them of his special emotion in entertaining them "in the land of
my forefathers."
