With peace still eluding the

years after the Six-Day War, the
enormous costs of defending their
land against enemies bent on re-

to continue paying the major share
of UJA-sponsored humanitarian
programs," Pines said. "Our goal
for 1970 must be greater than it
was in 1967 immediately after the
Six-Day War to help bring the Is-
raeli people the social relief they
need to meet the continuing crisis."
Sendler said the Israeli people

financial brunt of rehabilitating

by the UJA in 1969 and the over

people of Israel. The savage con-
flict goes on. For example, dur-
ing the month of August, a total
of 21 Israelis were killed and
129 wounded by Arab military
attacks and terrorism. If we com-
pare the populations of the United
States and Israel, the toll of 21
dead and 129 wounded is as if
1,680 American live were lost and
10.320 wounded in one month in
Vietnam. And this goes on, day
after day, month after month, year
after year, decade after decade.
One of the longest conflicts of
our time."
"Some tourists may return
from Israel and tell you they
didn't see the need for giving
to the UJA on a crisis basis,"
said Dr. Bernard. "They only
saw the surface signs of a coun-
try bustling with hard work,
rushing transport, crowded stores,
well-stocked supermarkets and a

heard of a labor shortage and
boom, without knowing the in-
side story of the drive for self-
sufficiency in production of wea-
pons of survival, and the enor-

Pelavin observed, "What is not

U.S. Urged to Revoke
Mail Rights of Neo-Nazi
Group Out of Canada

TORONTO (JTA)—Canadian pos-
stal authorities are asking their
American counterparts to revoke
the mailing privileges of a hate-
mongering neo-Nazi group, "The
Natural Order," which is getting
around the Canadian postal ban by
sending anti-Semitic literature into
Canada from Niagara Falls, N.Y.
The group, described as a front
for 54-year-old John Ross Taylor
of Gooderham, Ont., has been
mailing thick packets of hate lit-
erature, which includes the nefar-
ious Protocols of the Learned
Elders of Zion. One such packet
was mailed to the home of Robert
Muir, a Nova Scotia Conservative
member of the House of Commons.

Muir proceeded to ask Post-
master-General Eric Kierans to
ask American postal authorities
to institute a mail ban.

Muir explained that the ban
should be instituted because "The
literature apparently prepared by
these congenital fools reflects upon
the presiding officer of the House
of Commons (Speaker Lucien La-
moureux) and our Jewish citi-
zens." Kierans promised to accept
Muir's suggestion that the matter
be referred to the Commons Jus-
tice Committee.
The literature Muir received ask-
ed whether the "supposed neutral
speaker" was "trying to be a
nursemaid to (Pierre Eliot) Tru-
deau, (Canadian prime minister)
so that stinging rebuke and proof
of his incompetent judgment"
would not reach the members of
Other material in the packet
Muir received says the gas ovens
of the concentration camps were
built by captured German sol-
diers under the direction of Jew-
ish officers. The Protocols of
Zion, attributed to Jewish au-
thors, are described by the liter-
ature as proof of a plot by Jews
to control the world.
The packet carried a Niagara
Falls postmark and material in
the packet stated: "Our mail is
banned in Canada. Canadians send
mail to friends in the USA for re-
mailing to John Ross Taylor." A
Niagara Falls post office box was
given as the U.S. address.
The hate group stated it mailed
similar packets to 264 members of
Parliament last summer but the
mail was "detained" in the Com-
mons post office by Lamoureux
and returned.

`Consumer Price Rise
Less Broad Than Seemed'

ment spokesman said that the
sharp consumer price increases
announced Jan. 19 were not as
broad as they seemed. He attri-
buted them to inflationary pres-
sures exerted from outside of Is-
rael as well as within the country.
The spokesman, a senior official
of the ministry of commerce and
industry, told the JTA that the 153
retail items marked up amounted

to less than 5 per cent of all the

food consumed in Israel and were,
in many cases, variations of the
same product.
He cited, as an example, tuna
fish in oil, tuna fish in tomato
sauce and tuna fish in sauce

The spokesman said inflation
in Israel was a response to a
worldwide inflationary t r end
manifested by higher prices for
raw materials purchased abroad
and higher ocean freight rates.
He said transportation costs in-
side of Israel have also gone up
and that there has been an up-
ward "wage creep" in Israel de-
spite a wage freeze supposedly in
effect during 1969. He said his
ministry could do little to change
the situation.

At any given moment life Is
completely senseless. But viewed
over a long period, it seems to
reveal itself as an organism ex-
isting in time, having a purpose,
tending in a certain direction.
