Variety of WSU Press Publications

Anti-Semitic attitudes that pre-
dominate among conservative Prot-
estants are alluded to in the study
of prejudices that forms an im-
portant aspect of "The Lutheran
Ethic—The Impact of Religion on
Laymen and Clergy" by Dr. Law-
rence L. Kersten, published by
Wayne State University Press.
Dr. Kersten's study includes nu-
merous tabular surveys to indicate
the extent of prejudices. While
indicating that "Lutheran laymen
and clergy think Roman Catholics
are fairer in business dealings than
they think Jews to be," the author
state:, `hat "Lutherans are con-
iderably more concerned about
Catholic than Jewish power in
America." Dr. Kersten sum-
"According to traditional Luther-
an theology Jews are damned, and
there is no hope for these 'lost
people' unless they convert to
Christianity. The attitudes of Lu-
therans toward Jews and the
Lutheran ethic (particularly as it
relates to the separation of the
two kingdoms and government non-
interference) likely contributed to
the conditions in Nazi Germany
which resulted in the genocidal

Israelis Cross
Into Lebanon to
Catch Terrorists


TEL AVIV (JTA)—An Israeli
patrol invaded Lebanon again
July 1 in pursuit of a terrorist
gang it intercepted near Margaliot
in Upper Galilee. A military
spokesman said the patrol pene-
trated Lebanese territory to a dis-
tance about two miles from the
village of Akeb.
One terrorist was assumed to
have been killed and other injured
in the skirmish. There were no Is-
raeli casualties.
Earlier, at the United Nations,
Israeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah
said that a crossing into southern
Lebanon by Israeli soldiers June
29 was in response to terrorist at-
tacks on Israeli villages.
In a letter to Security Council
president Liu Chieh of China,
Tekoah said of the 21/2-hour bat-
tle within Lebanon that it was
the result of "almost daily acts of
hostility" from .Lebanese soil,
"acts of aggression (that) are con-
tinuing and have been intensified."
He said the Israelis crossed the
border "in pursuit after the at-
Tekoah quoted the Lebanese
newspaper Nida al-Watan as re-
porting that "3,000 armed ter-
, rorists entered Lebanon" in
February. The envoy referred
to Israel's "scrupulous observ-
ance of the cease fire on the
condition of reciprocity."
Lebanon has protested twice this
month to the Security Council over
five purported Israeli attacks on
Lebaneie villages; but she has
not requested a special council
A terrorist was wounded and
captured by an Israeli patrol in
the Gaza Strip Sunday night while
his gang escaped after ignoring
a warning shot. Israeli authorities
reported 10 border incidents last
week, down from 21 the week be-
fore. The report said the Jordan-
ian front was the most active, with
four clashes compared to six the
previous week.
The Gaza Strip scene of nine
incidents a week earlier, produced
only three last week. There were
three incidents on the Lebanese
frontier compared to two the week
before. Only one incident was re-
ported on the Syrian line, com-
pared to three a week earlier.
There were no incidents to re-
port on the Suez Canal front last
. week or the week before.

treatment of Jews. Martin Luther's
feelings toward Jews were not
consistent, and in his later life he
recommended harsh treatment for
them. Luther thought that God had
stricken the Jews with madness
and, therefore, radical measures
were in order. He thus recom-
mended destruction of synagogues
and prayer books, prohibition of
rabbis' teaching, confiscation of
wealth and banishment from the
Psychiatric Studies
Timeliness and realism are. the
distinguishing marks of value in an
important study of the drug prob-
lem published by Wayne State
University Press.
Drs. Henry Krystal and Herbert
A. Raskin, two well known psycho-
analysts, both associate psychiatry
professors at Wayne State Univer-
sity, in "Drug Dependence—As-
pects of Ego Functions," touch up-
on the many problems affecting
drug addicts.
They point out, in their study
that resulted from experience of
working with drug dependents,
that "drug dependence represented
a manisfestation of ego function, a
mode of adaptation, perhaps the
sole adjustive mechanism to living
problems the person has available
to himself at the moment ... It is
held to be a symptom representa-
tion, a behavioristic reflection of
some sort of psychological stress-
functioning, an attempt to meet,
deal with or master some form of
intrapsychic imbalance, conflict or
excitation ..."
The two authors state that many
people manage to keep their yearn-
ing in check for long periods "by
ingestion or injection of one drug
or another, and those who come to
our attention are the people for
whom this self-maintaining opera-
tion has failed. Therefore, under-
standing the causes and meanings
of that failure should be an early
quest in psychotherapy."

Study of Porter's Works
Among the newest Wayne State
University Press books is

It is a defense of Miss Porter's

`Stevens: Poem as Act'
Another new WSU Press publi-
cation is "Wallace Stevens: The
Poem as Act" by Prof. Merle
A study is made here of the
poetic works of Wallace Stevens
and there is emphasis on "criti-
cism, the animus of poetry."

Cleveland's city counsel. He is as
much at home before a supreme

where his children and grandchil-
