Mason comes from a family
of ordained rabbis—his father
and three brothers. Born in Sbe-

boygan, Wis., and brought up on
New York's Lower East Side,
Mason originally thought of em-
bracing the religious life.
A graduate of City College of
New York and the Yeshiva Univer-
sity, he spent two years with va-
rious congregations in North Caro-
lina and Pennsylvania. Wherever
he served, his public speaking —
usually laced with his own brand
of humor — always brought com-

decorations for bravery, 21 of them
posthumously, to officers and men
who were cited for gallantry above

last June's Six-day War.
Thirty of the soldiers received
their decorations personally from
Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin at
his headquarters. The posthumous
awards will go to the relatives of

wounded comrades tinder fire.
Additional junior officers and
men will get commendations at a

Buddhist Myths

The basic sources of myth and
legend in India are the Mahabhar-
ata and the Bamayana, epic poems
similar in scope to the Iliad and
the Odyssey. Like their Greek
counterparts, they provide a key to
an understanding of the civiliza-
tion from which they sprang, but
unlike the Homeric epics, they con-
tinue to permeate the whole life of
the Indian people as a controlling
The retelling of these legends is
the result of the efforts of two
prominent Indian scholars. The
late Ananda K. Coomaraswamy
was the former Keeper of Indian
and Muhammadan Art in the Bos-
ton Museum of Fine Arts. The Sis-
ter Nivedita (Margaret E. Noble),
an English woman by birth and a
disciple of Swami Vivekananda.
was an important interpreter of
Indian life to the West through her
books. The illustrations were done
by Indian artists who were famil-
iar since childhood with the stories

The following summer he hit
New Hampshire and found his
material and presentation im-
proving. But , it took another two
years of polishing and develop-
ing the zany routines before his
identity was established. In 1959,
he conquered the Borscht Belt,
where he had flopped his First
time around.
Subsequently, Steve Allen dis-
covered Jackie at the Slate Broth-
ers Club in California, and booked
him for his TV show. Jackie's
first appearance was enthusiasti-
cally received and he was asked
to come back again and again.
Today, five years later, Jackie
Mason is a household name. In ad-
dition to creating all of his own
comedy material, he has written
articles for several national mag-
azines. His first hard-cover book,
"My Son, the President," was pub-
lished two years ago.
The comedian is under contract
to an independent film producer
and will star in one picture a year
over the next four years. He is
mulling several network offers for
a television show of his own, and
he recently signed a recording con-
tract with MGM, calling for two
comedy albums a year.
