Two Detroit teachers whose two-
week trip to Israel was marred
by the ambushing of their tour
bus and the fatal shooting of a
fellow passenger, said the inci-
dent has not deterred them from
their intention to return.
Vivian Smargon, a teacher of

of Detroit, and Terri Faxstein,
an art teacher at Mott High School
in Warren, were aboard a bus that

fellow passengers were 10 min-

have not been found.

bus driver apparently took a
shortcut over a little frequented
