NY Orthodox Teachers
Seek Union Support
for Holiday Absences
NEW YORK (JTA)—A campaign
to persuade the United Federation
of Teachers to negotiate an agree-
ment with the board of education
to give teachers absenting them-
selves on religious holidays the
right to do so without the present
financial penalty has been started
by the Association of Orthodox
Jewish Teachers of the New York
City Public School s.
The association is circulating
among its members a petition, di-
reded to UFT president Albert
Shanker, which points out that
observant teachers cannot use
their accumulated absence reserve
to offset time they take off for
religious observance reasons. The
result, according to the petition,
"is a sizeable loss" of income each
year deducted for such absences.
The petition asserts that such
an agreement in the next UFT con-
tract, now being negotiated, would
not require additional funds and
would benefit a large group of
lamation designating May 12
through 18 as ARMED FORCES

"FURNACE OF THE LORD" is
Mrs. Elisabeth Elliot's account of
her travels in the Middle East
shortly after the six-day Arab-Is-
raeli war of 1967. Many Christians,
especially conservative ones, con-
sider the restoration of the Jewish
people to Jerusalem a requisite to
the final redemption of mankind.
Mrs. Elliot was therefore particu-
larly interested in how Jerusalem
was affected by the clash. After
extensive interviews, close obser-
vation and much reflection, she

(Doubleday, May 16). It is a vivid
record of the sights and sounds and
people of this troubled region.

Most people who have been done
a favor consider it an opportunity
to show their incorruptibility rather
than their gratitude. This is not on-
ly considerably cheaper morally,
but it sometimes increases their
pride so much that pretty soon
they look down on their benefactor.
