Former Palmach I__ eader Visits Here; Optimistic Cease Fire Will Continue
A distinguished Israeli physician
who was a leader in the Palmach
during Israel's 1947-48 War of In-
dependence has an optimistic atti-
tude on the current Middle East
situation. Dr. Myron (Meyer)
Issahari, here on a few days' visit
with his sister, Mrs. Samuel
(Esther) Lichtenstein, expressed
confidence that the cease fire that
is proving so beneficial will con-
During his brief stay here, be-
-fore he left for New York on Tues-
day morning to see his son, Jo-
hanan, who was to arrive that
morning with the Israel merchant
marine boat on which he serves as
a second mate, Dr. Issahari said
he believed there will be a rap-
- hement between the Soviet
:on and the U.S. and that an
agreement on areas of influence is
inevitable. "There is no peace in
sight, but neither will there be
war," he said.
Dr. Issahari was not pessimistic
about the current so-called "Black

their birthplace, Libau, then part

Interest Up in Israel
TEL AVIV (ZINS)—Foreign de-
positors holding accounts in Israel
banks will henceforth earn 7 per
cent (in place of the 6.37 per cent
previously paid), it was announced
here by the Bank of Israel.
According to economic analysts,
the move is designed to attract
additional savings from abroad.
Noah should only have lived to see it.
"That's some Ark," he would have said.
And he would have been right (prophets usually are),
because a lot of things have changed since the old days.
Take interior decoration, for example.
The first thing Noah would notice is that, instead of
bare wood walls, everything is colorful and cheerful.
He'd enjoy the beautiful mural of Jerusalem (even though
the city was built after his time).
And he'd certainly be impressed by the comfortable
seats (nobody ever told him about seats) and the two
wide aisles. Then he'd discover our 14 strategically lo-
cated powder rooms, an idea nobody could appreciate
Another idea he'd appreciate are our separate galleys
for dairy and meat dishes. They guarantee that our food
is not only delicious, but Kosher as well.
Noah ate only Kosher food, because that's the only
kind there was. But in all his 950 years, he never dreamed
of gefilte fish, or bagels and lox, just to mention the
He probably did dream of beautiful girls to serve all
that beautiful food. If so, we've made his dream come true.
Dreams may have been Noah's only form- of enter-
tainment, but we've come a long way since then. Listening
to our 8-channel recorded program of comedy, music,
Bible readings and folk songs, the old man wouldn't
believe his ears.
Then he'd watch a first-run movie and wouldn't believe
his eyes, either.
But we'd really get to Noah by describing how com-
plicated running an Ark has become.
He'd find it hard to imagine, for example, that we need
a two-acre hangar to park our Ark in, a $100,000 tractor
to tow it around, and a $35,000 air-conditioner to keep
the inside cool while it's sitting on the ground.
These and other such intricacies didn't surprise us
Mostly because there's a very good Book describing
Noah's circumstances which we've been privileged to
read (and learn from) for the past few thousand years.
So while it's true that our 747 service has just begun,
it's also true that we're the oldest arkline in the world.
