"Ah, the synagogue. Well, you
see, Elya, I didn't have much to
do with the synagogue. We were
almost freethinkers. Especially
my mother. She had a Polish edu-
cation. She gave me an emanci-
pated name: Arthur."
It is Artur Sammler speaking
and it is one of the variety of atti-
tudes, among the many revealing
factors in the life of the hero in
"Mr. Sammler's Planet," the best-
selling novel by Saul Bellow.
An entire world panorama is un-
folded in this story that stayed on
the best seller list for a very long
time and is now destined for an-
other long run among best sellers
in the paperback field.
Fawcett World Library reissued
it as a paperback. This is one of
Bellow's great triumphs. It is a
novel that deals with the world
shaking events of the crucial per-
iod in European history, the Middle
East references, the Polish trag-
It is a universal theme, and: the
streets of New York on which
Sammler walks, reflect another set
of attiudes, fearlessness and crui-
osity. There is a merger of feel-
ire:, a combination of sentiments,
a mixture of the comic and the
sad. It is the superb that makes
Bellow's works so great and that
has made the Sammler story among
his best. —P.S.

'71 Saw Israel Pound
Devalued 15 Per Cent
JERUSALEM (Z1NS) —Hebrew
University Economics Professor
Dan Patenkin, interviewed on tele-
vision. stated that the proposed
state budget for 1971 is highly in-
flationary, and it is doubtful wheth-
er it can be balanced.
In this connection, Patenkin no-
ted that in 1970 Israel's currency
was effectively devalued by ap-
proximately 15 per cent, making
the- actual rate of exchange be-
tween the Israel pound and the
American dollar approximately 5
to 1. The effective rate for exports
from Israel was U.S. $1.00 equals
4.80 pounds, while for imports it
was U.S. $1.00 equals 4.80 pounds.
Prof. Patenkin believes that Is-
rael ought to declare an official
devaluation of the Israel currency,
establishing a rate of 5 pounds to
the dollar. According to the min-
istri .of finance, Israel increased
its exports during 1970 by 7 per
The value of exports in 1970 was
$781.000,000 as against $730,000,-

LEADS THE WAY
According to Dr. Joseph Lich-
ten, the ADL's director of inter-
cultural affairs, "Our communi-
ties owe it to each other to ex-
change information on all sub-
jects both negative and positive,
which bear on their group rela-
tions." He acknowledged that
"some tenacious and real differ-
ences do exist," of an historical
and religions nature. One has
been the casting of Jews in the
role of Christ-killers.
The problem was eased consider-
ably by the Vatican II statement
on the Jews which absolved Jewry
Lichten rejected the widely held
blue-collar stereotype of Polish
Americans..11e said that the events
of World *War U and varying
claims of Jews and Poles about the
Polish people's role in the Nazi
slaughter had engendered M feel-
ings. But, he observed, the Jews
and Poles were often good neigh-
bors in peace and allies in war.
"They fought together against the
czars of Russia," Lichten said.
