Greeting From Their Ancestors to the Children of Israel

BY PAUL ELDRIDGE

Out of the dust of our bosoms
Out of the anguish of our yearning
You are the blossoms
You are our children.
You la-ugh as we laughed
With full-throated joy,
You, sing as we sang
Watching our long-coated sheep
Asleep in the milk of the moon
Or wielding our scythes
Lightning snapping the gold of the car
You dance as we danced '
Arms locked in arms
Feet and hearts beating wildly together.
Yogi are our children—
(

:

You speak the tongue we spoke
For love: a brook tumbling over rocks
Scented with myrrh and sweetened
with honey;
For prophecy: an ocean burnished
with sunset
And swollen and scourged by the
winds;
For war: arrows of quivering steel
And trumpets of thunderous brass.
You are our children—
Ours your straight limbs
Ours your bronzed faces
Ours- your eyes sharp as the eagle's
watching
watching his prey
And gentle as the doe's which never

-met hunter.
You are our children—
Proud with the knowledge of truth
Gracious with the comfort of strength
Extending the hand in greeting of
peace
To men of good will,
Unsheathing the sword
Tempered in the furnace of justice
And honed on the stones of anger
To tyrants and men of ill blood.
You are our children—
Out of the dust of our bosoms
Out of the anguish of our yearning
You are the blossoms.
Bloom on forever!

NPD Victory Cited as Reason to Sign
Anti-Genocide Pact, Says Sir Janner

LONDON (JTA) — Britain's
speedy ratification of the United
Nations' anti-genocide convention
was urged in the House of Com-
mons by Sir Barnett Janner and
other Laborite MPs today "in view
of the shocking rise of neo-Nazism
in Germany and the fact that Hu-
man Rights Year is in effect."
Sir Barnett raised the question
last week during a session on this
week's agenda. He asked the House
leader, Fred Peart, if he would
"reconsider introducing as speed-
ily as possible, legislation so that
we can accede to the convention
on genocide." Peart said "I am
afraid it will not be on next week's
business, but I know your strong
feelings on this point and I will
bear it in mind."
The Board of Deputies of British
Jews said that it viewed "with the
gravest concern, the continued
progress and success of the Na-

tional Democratic Party in the
elections in Baden-Wurttemberg."
The NPD polled nearly 10 per
cent of the popular vote in the state
eection. The board noted that it
had "repeatedly conveyed to the
Federal German Government its
view that firm action was essential
to curtail the dangerous influences
of the NPD."
