For the Record:
No Jewish Judge on
Canada High Court

Editor, The Jewish News:
I enjoy reading your column
Purely Commentary, because it re-
veals such a thorough knowledge
of what is happening in the Jewish
world today.
In your issue of July 26 you
wrote a very interesting piece
about "Jewish Chief Justices in
Many Lands," in which you include
the name of Mr. Justice "Nathan
Nemetz, Judge of Supreme Court
of British Columbia." Mr. Justice
Nemetz, to the best of my knowl-
edge, is ,not the chief justice of the
Supreme (or Superior) Court of
the province of British Columbia.
He is one of the associate justices
of that province's highest court.
There is no Jewish judge on the
Supreme Court of Canada nor was
there ever such a judge in that
country.
In addition to Mr. Justice Ne-
metz, there are other (and senior
from the time of appointment)
judges on the highest courts in
different provinces in Canada:
Mr. Justice Harry Batshaw, a
very active and veteran Zionist
leader, was the first Jew to be ap-
pointed to this high office any-
where in Canada (in the province
of Quebec);
Mr. Justice Abraham H. Lieff,
another distinguished Zionist, a
former president of a synagogue
in Ottawa, a Talmudic scholar, be-
came the first Jew to reach the
Supreme Court of Ontario;
Mr. Justice Benjamin Robinson
was the second Jew appointed to
the highest bench in Quebec prov-
ince;
Mr. Justice Samuel Freedman,
an outstanding spokesman for the
Canadian Friends of the Hebrew
University, was the first Jew to
be so highly honored by the prov-
ince of Manitoba;
Mr. Justice Nemetz of British
Columbia. I think, was the most

recent of these appointments.

But none of these men, as dis-
tinguished and as able as they are,
have ever served as a "chief jus-
tice.

Try and Stop Me

By BENNETT CERF

COME OF the new draftees have a tough time learning
ki how to handle a rifle. One old sergeant tells of taking
a group of them out to a range and ordering them to fire at
targets a hundred yards

away. When the smoke
cleared away, the targets
didn't have one mark on
them, The sergeant now
tried his men at a fifty-
yard • distance. Results:
nil again. Even at twen-
ty-five yards the embryo
Dead-Eye Dicks regis-
tered complete misses. In
final disgust, the sergeant
declared wearily, "Okay,
men: fix your bayonets
and we'll CHARGE the
so and so targets!"

later reprinted in its entirety in the Congressional Record—read,
"Once a year my daughters and grandchildren,. and with good
friends, should select one of my stories, one of the very merry
ones, and recite it in whatever language is more intelligible to
them, and let my name be recalled by them with laughter rather
than not be remembered at all."

A man who had bought a very expensive parakeet couldn't
get the bird to say a word till he pushed his face up to the cage
and snarledt "You dope, can't you talk?" The parakeet snarled

USSR Sidur Draws
Reader's Comments

Editor, The Jewish News:
Some relevant observations with
reference to the new Jewish USSR
Sidur (The Jewish News, 7-26-68):
"Sidur Ha-Shalom." Its title al-
ludes to the concept of "Prayer-
book Peace," as it is indeed called
in Russian "Molit Verruik Mir."
However "the word shalom also
spells the Hebrew for complete,"
i.e., when the Vav (the second last
letter) is missing, and when the
word is not punctuated by vowels
for the vowel t seire (two dots side
by side) under the letter lamed is
distinctive for "complete." while
the vowel holam (a dot) above the
`lamed' signifies peace.
The Sidur is complete inasmuch
as it contains 479 pages. But is it
to be regarded as salutary? No
and yes! No, if by its only publica-
tion, the USSR will not erase its
policy of repression toward Russian
Jewry; if it is devised by the USSR
as a swan song — God forbid! Yes,
if this new Sidur denotes a trend
to make an end of the Soviet gov-
ernment's persecution of its Jew-
ish population, pertaining to Jew-
ish education. in particular.
The inclusion in the Sidur of
a prayer for the government of
the USSR is not unique. Gener-
ally in every community in the
world such an inclusion is prac-

Under. the Czarist regime in the
late 19th Century and in the early
20th — the Jews had a prayer for
"Our Lord the Emperor Nikolei
Alexandrovitch, with his queen, the
honorable Maryia Fedorovna, and
the great prince, heir to the throne,
Mikchail Alexandrovitch. . ." This
prayer is on page 272 in the Kor-
ban Minkha—gift offering—Sidur,
published in Vilna in 1888 by the
Widow and Brothers Romm.

Solving Refugee Issue
in "Reclaimed" Israel
Editor, The Jewish News:
The refugee issue will finally be
resolved, provided Israel does not
succumb to the blandishments of
the United States, the threats of
the Soviet Union, and the illusion
of a signed "peace" with the
Arabs.
What Israel needs is not peace
now but entrenchment in the re-
claiming (not conquered) terri-
tories, which can be best achieved
in the present twilight between
peace and war and with a mur-
derous enemy at all the gates.
Thus petty quarrels will be sub-
dued and a generation of Sabras,
that never knew the ghettos, will
grow up and assume leadership.
The new main effort of the
American Jews at present is to
force the State Department to
allow planes to be sent to Israel,
ridiculing the notion that there
has 'ever been an arms race. Al-
ways there was only one single
horse running on the turf winning
all the purses, and the jockey a
frothing "Camel."

Poland Reportedly Shut
Only Jewish Camps

WARSAW (JTA)—New evidence
was reported here Monday that
the decision of Polish authorities
to cancel government-aided Jewish
summer schools this year was part
of the official anti-Jewish cam-
paign of the Gomulka regime.
When officials anounced termina-
tion of the program last spring,
they gave budgetary problems as
the reason. It has been learned,
however, that not only were sum-
mer camps for children studying
foreign languages not curtailed or
eliminated but in fact have been
expanded. The Jewish summer
schools had provided instruction
in Jewish subjects, in addition to
the usual summer camp programs
