Vol. LIX. No. 18 -
Sinai Hospital has officially named its new 156-bed patient care addition the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Pavilion, it was
announced Tuesday by Dr. Julien Priver, executive vice president.
The $10,200,000 facility, which will_ admit its first patients next week, was named in honor of the Fisher family, who gave an
initial $500,000 toward its construction. Fisher is a long-time member of the hospital's board of trustees.
The first patients will be moved into the third floor of the new addition Sunday. An ultra-modern 17-room operating suite
and adjacent holding and recovery areas on the ground floor will open later in the month.
First-floor admitting and business offices will open in mid-August, and a 12-bed surgical intensive care unit on the second
floor will be in use by late next month.
The four-story structure contains 150,000 square feet and when all facilities are in use will increase the total bed capacity at
Sinai Hospital to 619.

Israeli 'Black Panthers' Plan
U. S. Visit to Expose Poverty,
JERUSALEM (JTA)—A delegation of Israel's "Black Panthers"
will go on a speaking tour of the United States in mid-September to
try to get the American Jewish community to pressure the Israel
government better to meet the needs of the country's poor, it was
announced at a Panther press conference here Monday night.
The delegation will consist of Panther leaders, Reuven Abergil,
Charlie Biton and Saadya Marciano, who will be accompanied by Dr.
Naomi Kies of the Hebrew University's political science faculty, an
American settler who has been closely associated with the Panther
movement since last March.
Marciano said the purpose of the mission was "to go to the
American Jewish community and to advise them on how their dona-
tions to Israel are being misspent." He said they had no intention of
raising money for the Panthers, only to influence public opinion.
The Black Panthers, who took to the streets recently in noisy,
sometimes riotous, demonstrations, protesting poverty and squalid
living conditions, are mainly youths and young adults of North Amer-
ican and Asian origin from Jerusalem slums. They adopted the name
and style of the militant black American group but have no known
connection with them. The Panthers have accused the government
of discrimination against Sephardic—Oriental—Jews in housing, em-
ployment and education. (Continued on Page 3)
TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israeli military leaders hinted Tuesday that there would be new
commando raids deep inside Egypt should fighting break out again at the Suez front.
Chief of Staff Gen. Haim Bar-Lev told paratroopers at Ramat Gan Tuesday that in the
event of a new war they would play "a difficult and central role" just as they did dur-
ing the war of attrition. That war, waged by the late Egyptian President Gamal Abdel
Nasser up to the cease fire on Aug. 8, was marked by a series of raids by Israeli airborne
troops on key targets in the Egyptian hinterland.
Gen. Rafael Eytan, the paratroop commander, said the gap between Israeli and Egyp-
tian commandos has continued to widen since the Six-Day War. He said the Israeli para-
trooper and infantry man is better equipped with knowledge and experience. Gen Bar-
Lev stressed that the Israeli army has learned the lessons of the past.

Plaque Commemorating Herzl s Prophecy
By PHILIP SLOMOVITZ
PARIS, France—History has its many echoes and symbols. Great events and
creative personalities often are remembered through plaques and memorials which
keep them unforgotten in the memory of man.
There is such a plaque in Paris. Within a block of Place Vendome there is a
mociest hotel on the wall of which there is a tablet, in Hebrew and French. It reads:

When Dr. Herzl was named Paris correspondent of the Viennese Neue Freie
months of 1895
Press, he stayed at Hotel Rastatt on Rue Douon in Paris. In the first
he lived at 8 Rue de Monceau, later moving to Hotel de Castille where he produced
"The Jewish State."
There are three references to the Castille hotel in the biography by the late
Israel Cohen, "Theodor Herzl, Founder of Political Zionism." The first is to the
original stay when the founder of the Zionist movement wrote "The Jewish State."
The second, referring to historic developments in 1898, states:
"In Paris, he again stayed at the Hotel Castille, and in the same room that
he had previously occupied and at the same table on which he had written
Jewish State,' he penned a long letter to Count (Philip zu) Eulenberg, stating that
his talk with (Count von) Buelow had ended abruptly and again craving an audi-
ence with the Kaiser."
Then there is the third reference, to 1899:
"In accordance with his usual practice, he stayed (on June 19)
at the Hotel Castille, where he had written 'The Jewish State' four
years before. He commented on the fact in the following words:
`What a road since then ! And also what weariness. My heart is
very tired. I suffer from oppression of the chest and irregular
beatings of the pulse.' But he could take no rest. Together with
(Dr. Max) Nordau and (Dr.) Alexander Marmorek, he visited Nar-
Leven, president of the Jewish Colonization Association (as

tion would be willing to support them as soon as they obtained
