Israeli Trade Mission
Closes Deals in Africa


trade mission concluding a three-
week visit to Congo Kinshasa, Zam-
bia and Malawi has closed deals
worth some $350,000,000, the min-
istry of commerce and indusrty an-
A ministry spokesman said ne-
gotiations for further agreements
were underway in the fields of
agriculture and joint industrial en-
terprises. Israel's exports to the
three African countries amounted
to $6,200,000 in 1970 compared to
$4,300,000 in 1969.

Good Year for Citrus

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—Current cit-
rus exports are expected to yield
$115,000,000, compared with $86,-
000,000 for the previous year.
Two factors are responsible -for
this bright picture:` improved qual-
ity of the Israeli fruit and the
Spanish frosts . which crippled the
citrus crop in that country, one of
Israel's strongest competitors in
the European market.
It is anticipated that both Japan
and East Europe will be placing
larger orders for Israel fruit this
ycar. It also is expected that next
year the demand for Israel citrus
will exceed the supply. Current
profit to the citrus growers will be
between 25 per cent and 30 per
cent of their investment.

Wasserman, author of
"Man of La Mancha," has chided
a Moscow theater director for
scheduling an unauthorized produc-
tion in the midst of "the current
Soviet attitude toward Jews." He
pointed out first that he, composer
Mitch Leigh and lyricist Joe Darion
are Jewish, then added "a fact
generally, unknown even to the
audiences which have already seen
the play worldwide." The fact:
"The charge against Cervantes con-
sisted in violation of the limpieza
de sangre statute, a law promul-
gated by the Inquisition which
barred persons of Jewish 'blood
from most kinds of employment.
In short, Cervantes was charged
with the crime of being wholly or
partially Jewish. And from exten-
sive research on the subject I can
verify that virtually without doubt
he was guilty."

New Zim Line?

Anyone tuned in to folk-rock
knows that "Great White Wonder"
Bob Dylan was originally Robert
Zimmerman. Rumors are now rife
that he is rediscovering his Jew-
ish heritage. The San Francisco
rock journal Rolling Stone heard
he was taking Hebrew lessons, and
on July 8 reprinted an article
from the Flame, published by the
Union of Jewish Students at City
College, New York, that rumored
that Dylan: has made three an-
nual summer visits to Israel, each
time taking in the Western Wall
in disguise; may go on aliya;
wanted "Robert Zimmerman" on
his "Self-Portrait" album; will ap-
pear for the UJA at Madison
Square Garden, and has donated
$2.000 to the Jewish Defense
Flame writer Jonathan Braun
says "only the _JDL -tale contains
a kernel of truth," quoting Rabbi
Meir Kahane as saying: "Dylan
did promise us money, but so far
we're still waiting."
Adds Braun: "There does seem
to be some basis for believing that
Dob Dylan, like so many of his
fans in recent years, has been
struggling with his identity in an
attr_nupt to find value in being
Jewish . . . At a time when in-
creasing numbers of Americans,
particularly young Americans, are
experiencing an intense rebirth of
ethnic consciousness, it is more
than likely that an artist critic of
society . . . would find himself
taking a fresh look at his past."

TEL AVIV (ZINS) -- Prof. Eph-
raim Yochtmann reports there are
now 40,000 enrolled in Israel's uni-
versities, of whom only 10 per cent
are students of Oriental back-
ground. Of those who acquire aca-
demic degrees, only 6 per cent
come from the so-called under-
privileged classes. This figure is
reflective also of the fact that only
6 per cent of those enrolled in
elementary schools are from Afro-
Asian countries of origin.
Many educational experts are
convinced that tens of thousands
of qualified youngsters lose the
chance of a higher education only
for lack of financial means. There
is a desperate need for scholar-
ships and subventions. But philan-
thropy from abroad seems to focus
more on brick and mortar than it
does on this crying need. In the
words of Prof. Yehezkiel Kutscher,
"It would be rather difficult to af-
fix a plaque on the back of a
student reading 'contributed by
Mr. and Mrs. . . . of California.' "

Put all thine eggs in one basket
and—watch that basket.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan stressed
that removal of refugees from
some camps in the Gaza Strip was
a "single act" necessitated by
security reasons and in no sense
a long-range action.
Dayan said he disagreed with
use of the term "thinning out"
by Gen. Shlomo Gazit, the co-
ordinator of activities in the oc-
cupied area, in describing the
transfer of refugees from the
Nuizerat camp, the largest refugee
camp in the Gaza Strip, to empty
apartments in El Arish in north-
ern Sinai. Dayan said there were
"ample" numbers of empty resi-
dences in the West • Bank which
could be used to accommodate a
large part of the refugee popula-
tion of the Gaza Strip.
Noting that so far, only 200
refugee families had volunteered
for evacuation, he said the prob-
lem now facing the Israeli au-
thorities was whether to "force"
refugees to accept alternative
places of residence. He added that
the refugees who insisted on re-
maining in the camps should have
their housing improved and as-
sured of regular employment.
Israeli authorities started the
evacuation of several refugee fam-
ilies from the Shati camp where
homes were demolished for con-
struction of new roads for security
purposes, the same reason for
similar razing of - homes of re-
fugees in the Nuizerat camp. It
was estimated that the total num-
ber of refugees scheduled for
evacuation and transfer because
of the road construction would
reach 1,000.

MIAMI (JTA)—The Florida re-
gional office of the Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith pledged
to assist the Dade County Com-
munity Relations Board in efforts,
to achieve an end to the discrimi-
natory membership policies of civic
and .service clubs in the area.
William Alper, chairman of the
ADL regional board, compli-
mented the CRB for its recent
statement calling for the leader-
ship of local civic and service
clubs to act decisively to end dis-
criminatory membership practices
against Latins and Blacks.

Service Links New York
Airports to Williamsburg

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Board
of Estimate of the City of New
York approved a new franchise
that will authorize limousine serv-
ice between Williamsburg and La
Guardia - Kennedy airports, ac-
cording to an announcement by
Rabbi Bernard Weinberg, Orthodox
Jewish leader in the Williamsburg
community. The franchise was
granted to the Statewide Airport
Transportation Corp. whose prin-
cipals are Hasidic Jews who will
provide the service from 6 a.m.
to 9 p.m. daily.

—'Prior to his departure for Israel
Monday night, Israeli Ambasssa-
dor Yosef Tekoah met with Secre-
tary General Thant to discuss "the
general political situation especi-
ally the next General Assembly"
and to present him with more peti-
tions on behalf of freedom for
Soviet Jews.
The Assembly will convene •the
third week of September, and the
Arab states may again submit a
spate of anti-Israel resolutions.

Schmeling Salts
Former heavyweight champ Max
Schmeling, now 65, recently told
an impressionable Mery Griffin
that the stories about racial anta-
gonism between him and Joe
Louis, now 57, more than three
decades ago had been exaggerated
by the press. "I was never a
Nazi," he explained. That he was
never actually a • party member
is confirmed by Nat Loubet of Ring
Magazine. But Loubet, who helped
liberate the death camps and - had
nightmares about them for years,
adds: "He's certainly morally
guilty. He certainly didn't spit in
any high SS face, or he wouldn't
be around today. He obviously
didn't speak against it. He ce•
tainly was cognizant of the line
the Fuehrer was taking, Got
knows. He wanted to go back tt
As sportswriter Jack Sher re-
called a quarter-century ago in
"Brown Bomber" (reprinted in
"Twelve Sport Immorals") : "In
typical Nazi fashion, Schmeling
boasted that, because he was a
white man, he knew he could beat
a colored man . . . Like Hitler
hopping in glee over the fall of
France, Schmeling read telegrams
of congratulations from Goebbels
and the Fuehrer himself and mut-
tered a 'Heil Hitler' into the micro-
phone in his dressing room."
But the glory was not to be.
"They rode his train until he was
knocked out," says ‘ Loubet. "Once
he lost the fight they chucked him
to the wolves."
As for _Louis' subsequent and
continuing friendship for Herr
Max, Loubet remarks: "I think
Louis has forgotten a lot . of the
-pain' of the last 20 years. Maybe
he too was guilty of building up
the gate. Fighting is a funny thing
—if you won the way Louis did
it's easy to be magnanimous."
