Motke Habad Story
Motke Habad was once sum-
moned by the local Polish land-
owner and told to go to the fair
in a neighboring town to purchase
a French poodle for the Baroness.
"Certainly!" cried Motke, all
eagerness. "And how much is Your
Excellency willing to spend for a
first-class French poodle?"
"Up to twenty rubles."
"Out of the question!" Motke
snapped. "For a really first-class
French poodle one must pay at
least—at least fifty rubles!"
The nobleman tried to dispute
this, but Motke was so positive
that the other finally yielded.
Handing over the fifty rubles, he
told Motke to hurry off. Where-
upon the schlemiel became covered
with confusion and stammered:
"Yes, Your Excellency, I go, I go.
B-but please, Your Excellency,
what exactly is a French poodle?"

Desalination Backed to Promote Peace
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Secre-
tary of the Interior Stewart L.
Udall urged in testimony before the
Senate Foreign Relations Commit-
tee that the Senate approve a reso-
lution envisaging an international
nuclear desalination undertaking
to promote Arab-Israel peace.
Udall suggested to the committee
that investment in the proposed
plan for regional development co-
operation would save military
expenditures. He welcomed "Re-
publican initiatives" and endorsed
project "MEND," advocated in the
resolution offered by Sen. Howard
H. Baker, Jr., Tennessee Republi-
The resolution would express the
sense of Congress in support of the
general idea and leave implemen-
tation to the executive depart-
ment of the government. The ten-
tative plan calls for two nuclear
desalination plants in Israel and
one in Jordan, which would gener-
ate electricity in a d dit ion to
providing desalted water for agri-
culture and industry.
Udall stressed that the proposal
would contribute toward Arab-
Israel peace by "creating jobs for
refugees, increasing agricultural
productivity, improving Arab-Is-
rael relations, and advancing the
role of the United States as a
peacemaker in the Middle East."
He added that "cost of water
from large units is estimated to be
from 22 to 35 cents per 1,000 gal-
lons, which can be afforded in the
Middle East, considering the inten-
sive agriculture there and the
purity of desalted water."
volving the international financial
community through a "Comsat-type
approach." He said governments
and individuals would be attracted
to a financially sound undertaking.
Sen. Albert Gore, Tennessee Demo-
crat, a member of the Committee,
said he approved of "MEND" but
had reservations about "Comsat"
financing because private organi-
zations gained financing in this
way at the expense of the tax-

N.Y. Shirt Co. in Israel
The Manhattan Shirt Co. is one
of the most recent American firms
investing in Israeli industry. The
company, second largest producer
in the world of men's and women's
shirts, has entered into a licens-
ing agreement with an Israeli fac-
tory which was built with the aid
of Israel Bonds.
Sen. Baker testified that
"MEND" (Middle East Nuclear
Desalination) would promote
Arab-Israel peace by offering
benefits to both side through
mutual cooperation. The interna-
tional corporation visualized
"would provide a non-national
third party with which both the
Arabs and Israelis could talk."

tors have registered support for
