Max's daughter. I go to a syna-

"What's that?" . . . "Well," said
the 7-year-old patiently, "you
know, there are Protestants, Cath-
olics and Jews, but they're just
different ways of voting for God!"

Post-Halloween `Mitzva'

A commendable sense of humor,
added to power of observation and
ability to analyze characteristics
of noted Americans, make "Talk
About America" by Alistair Cooke
(Knopf) a noteworthy commentary
on our way of life and on the peo-
ple who helped mould it.
Whether he writes about ,LBJ
(President Johnson) or z HLM
(Mencken), Cooke, a correspon-
dent and broadcaster of note, has
entertaining, thought - provoking,
current-historically motivated ob-
Because it covers the events
of a generation, the drama of
life and the men who partici-
pated in it, this volume is like a
satirical history of our time. For

Soviets Give Evidence
for War Crimes Trials

BONN (JTA)— West Germany's
chief war crimes prosecutor said
Sunday that Soviet authorities are
cooperating fully in providing evi-
dence against Germans who par-
ticipated in the mass murder of
Jews in Russia during World War
II. But the prosecutor, Adalbert
Rueckerl, who just returned from
Moscow where he examined some
of the evidence, warned that the
central prosecution office at Lud-
wigsburg would be unable to pur-
sue the many new cases brought
to light if the statute of limitations
on war crimes prosecution goes
into effect at the end of 1969 as
Rueckerl and Rudolph Schlier,
minister of justice of the state of
Wurtemburg-Baden, reported to the
press on their visit to Moscow and
the photographic and documentary
evidence submitted by the Rus-
Schlier said he was categorically
opposed to the statute of limitations
which would bar further prosecu-
tion of Nazi war criminals sus-
pected of murder.
Rueckerl said his office would
be unable to complete examina-
tion of its files or investigate
many new cases before the sta-
tute goes into effect. He said the
Ludwigsburg office is currently
investigating 15,000 suspected
Nazi war criminals.
Rueckerl said that in Moscow he
was shown photographs of German
police units responsible for killing
Jews. The back of each photograph
was marked with the time, date
and place and the names of the
accused. The pictures were taken
by amateur photographers, he said,
and the Russians possess 100

albums and documents that detail
raids and the round-up of Jews in
Soviet villages.
Rueckerl and Dietrich Zeug, who
heads the Ludwigsburg archives,
said they had no doubt that the
photos and documents were gen-
uine. They said the Russians were
prepared to hand over the originals
if German courts refused to accept
the copies. The Russians also offer-
ed to hand over 50,000 volumes of
testimony by witnesses. A West
German delegation will return to
Russia and will visit the Baltic
states to examine further evidence.

Jewish Youth Council
Invites Group Delegates
to Opening Meeting

Cooke's 'Talk Ab out America':
Thought-Provokin g Commentaries

instance, writing about the Earl
Warren report on the Kennedy
assassination, be recalls some of
the injected fears and suspicions
and the rumors and charges:
"the notion that Ruby executed
an assignment to silence Os-
wald's tongue; that Oswald was
a cunning Trotskyite; that, ac-
cording to the bland conclusion
of the Egyptian press, Ruby was,
on the contrary, the tool of a
Zionist plot."
Whether he deals with American
political aspects or with social
factors, there is a thoroughness
that distinguishes these essays.
At one point, for example, deal-
' ing with "The Western Myth,"
Cooke makes note of Adolph Sutro,
the poor German Jewish immi-
grant, who "conceived the idea of
'deep mining': of building a tunnel
that would run far under the Com-
stock Lode, drain the flooded
shafts, extract the invisible, un-
reachable ore."
He touches upon many current
issues and he comments, to point
to another example: "Vitenam, I
fear, is the price of the Kennedy
All issues, liberty and the price
of democracy, and many others,
as viewed by Cooke, provide good
reading and subjects for thought
and reflection. —P.S.
