Red Mogen David
TEL AVIV (JTA)—Leaders of
Magen David Adorn, Israel's offi-
cial red cross agency, have an-
nounced a major effort to expand
and re-equip Israel's major blood
banking facility, the Col. David
Marcus Blood Bank and Fractiona-
tion Center in Jaffa.
The announcement was jointly
made by Magen David Adom's
president, Dr. Eliahu Elath, and
the head of MDA's foreign rela-
tions department, David Tesher,
who each issued an urgent appeal
to American friends of Magen
David Adorn to help in this vital
project, designed to upgrade the
capabilities of the blood bank cen-
ter in order to meet the emergency
blood needs of the nation.
Dr. Fred Rothstein, newly ap-
pointed director of the Marcus
Blood Center, called the project
"the most important effort ever
undertaken by the blood center."
Rabbi Brickner Tells
of a Growing Peace
Movement in Vietnam
NEW YORK (JTA)—Rabbi Bal-
four Brickner, director of the
commission on interfaith activi-
ties of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations who recent-
ly returned from a trip to Vietnam
under the sponsorship of the Fel-
lowship of Reconciliation, reported
that a "burgeoning peace move-
ment" is "alive everywhere" in
Vietnam and is supported by all
ranks of the citizenry.
A longtime critic of American
involvement in the Vietnamese war,
Rabbi Brickner said President
Nguyen Van Thieu and Vice Pres-
ident Nguyen Cao Ky are aware
of the growing peace movement.
"Hence," he said, "they declare
that anyone calling for an imme-
diate peace will be considered a
friend of the Communists and all
powers of the government and the
law would be arraigned against
Rabbi Brickner declared that
those involved in the peace move-
ment are "as militantly anti-Com-
munist as they aree'anti-Thieu-Ky,"
and that their desire is not so
much a quick withdrawal of Amer-
ican troops from Vietnam as it is
a withdrawal of U.S. support of
'the Thieu government.
Withdrawal of American support
from the present Saigon govern-
ment, he said, would give the
"repressed forces for peace" in
South Vietnam the opportunity to
"surface and form the kind of
political force which will make a
viable peace possible."
Rabbi Brickner also reported
that his group, joined by Austra-
lians, New Zealanders and Dutch-
men who also visited Saigon to
investigate the Vietnamese peace
movement, had visited Con Son Is-
land with its infamous "tiger
cages" and had participated in a
student peace protest which was
tear-gassed by the Saigon security
"The incongruity of America pro-
viding tear gas to the Saigon po-
lice for use by that force to re-
press basic civil rights was not lost
on the Saigon students," Rabbi
"They wonder how a govern-
ment that invades another coun-
try, in order to impose freedom
and democracy,, permits the re-
pression of the very freedoms and
democracies it is there to protect."
Rabbi Brickner said that all
efforts to meet with Saigon offi-
cials were futile, and that appoint-
ments were set and later cancel-
led for one reason or another.
The group did meet briefly, he
said, with Assistant U.S. Ambas-
sador Samuel Berger and that his
response "to our question about
U.S. complicity on the 'matter of
prisons in Vietnam was a closed
and typically guarded reply."
Robinson Brothers has
more luxurious 2- and
in fine suburbs than
Almost anybody can build an apartment.
Just look around and you'll see what we mean.
But what about a place to live in? Really live
in. What about a towering view? What about room to
breathe? What about a feeling of security? What
about peace? And quiet?
That's what Robinson Brothers apartments are all
about. That's what millions of dollars and years
of man-hours have created in four beautifully
distinctive communities. High vision tempered
with sound management. They're at work now
to bring you even greater refinements
in good living during
the years ahead.
This is why so many
people have found
high-rise and gar-
den apartments so
desirable. This is
why our solid
growth will con-
tinue to grow.
