$90.000 Goes to Compilers
of Yiddish Dictionary

NEW YORK (JTA) — City Col-
lege's Institute of Yiddish Lexi-
cology has received $90,000 in
grants, $45,000 each from the Na-
tional Endowment for the Humani-
ties and the American Friends of
thet Hebrew University, it was
announced by Dr. R. E. Marshak,
president of City College.
The Institute or Yiddish Lexi-
cology is under the direction of
Prof. Nathan Susskind of the col-
lege's department of Germanic and
Slavic languages.
It was established at the col-
lege in 1965, for the purpose of
compiling a "Great Dictionary of
the Yiddish Language."

The third volume of the dic-
tionary will be issued this spring,
bringing the number of defini-
tions of Yiddish words covered
so far to 60,000. The entire dic-
tionary is expected to consist of
at least 10 volumes.

Work on the dictionary origin-
ally began long before World War,
II in Eastern Europe. However,
materials collected at that time
•were either lost or destroyed due
to the war. Present work dates
back to 1953 when a group of
distinguished academic and lay
leaders agreed, in cooperation with

Reaching Point of Self-Sufficiency

approaching self-sufficiency in the

The reason, according to informed-

Franco-Israeli Discussion

on Mirage Payment Resumed
PARIS (JTA) — France and
Israel resumed their negotiations
in an effort to break the deadlock
on the reimbursement by France
of the money paid for the 50 Mir-
age planes embargoed by General
Charles De Gaulle on the eve of

the Six-Day War.
The two delegations met at the
French Foreign Ministry for what
both' sides described as "purely
technical talks."
It is understood that the two
delegations led respectively by
Israeli Ambassador Asher Ben

Natan and the deputy head of the
Quai D'Orsay's department of
economic affairs, Ctitistian D'Au-
male. confined themselves to ex-
amining technical reports without
touching upon the basic issue it-
self.
Since the start of the talks last
autumn, Israel has been trying
to turn the negotiations into a
"package deal" touching upon
many other political and economic
issues while France has adamant-
ly refused to be drawn out of the
technical background dealing with
the Mirages themselves.

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Queens Jewish Community Council
declared over the weekend that
instead of "honest efforts" in the
matter of the controversial low-
income housing project, "allive
see are the distortions, misstate-
ments and half-truths deliberately
phrased by the city administration
to confuse the issues and deceive
the public."
Dr. Alvin Lashinsky, president
of the QJCC, said that "Instead of
negotiating fro nestly (Housing
Authority Chairman) Simeon Golar
continues his foolish publicity pro-
posals about screening commit-
tees,"
There has been some discus-
sion to let a citizens' committee
screen applicants for the 840-
family project in Forest Hills,
Queens, situated in a middle in-
come, white, largely Jewish
area. The housing authority,
however, retains final word on
each applicant.

NEW YORK (JTA) — A Los annual tuition-free clinic, held at

Angeles rabbi has reported that six
college-age members of families of
his congregation rejected Judaism
to the point where they had con-
verted formally to another faith,
four of them having become
"Jesus freaks." The other two, ac-
cording to Rabbi Isaiah Zeldin of
the Stephen S. Wise Temple, be-
came gurus and left for India "to
become followers of Buddhism."
All were males.
In reporting on the development,
Rabbi Zeldin said he had talked
to all six despite the fact that he
did not regard such departures
from Judaism by six college-age
kids "out of 400 to 500 in that age
bracket who belong to our congre-
gation" as marking a significant
trend. He explained, rather, that
he wanted to learn some of the
"common denominators about the
six." His report was reprinted
from his synagogue bulletin in the
current bulletin of the Town and
Village Synagogue, a Conservative
synagogue in Manhattan,

Chile Loses Last Rabbi
to W. Berlin Synagogue I

SANTIAGO (JTA)—The sched-
uled departure next month of
Rabbi Egon Lubliner from this
city to become spiritual leader
of the Pestalozi Street Synagogue
in West Berlin will leave Chile's
community of 35,000 Jews without
a rabbi.

At one time there were five
rabbis — four in Santiago and
one in Valparaiso — but over a
number of years rabbis have
been leaving to take posts in
other countries.

The Jewish communal organiza-
tions have sent out distress signals
to Jewish communities in other
South American countries asking
them to help fill the vacuum.
There is some hope that the
rabbinical seminary in Buenos
Aires can send at least one rabbi

to Santiago which. has a Jewish
population of 30,000. There are

4,000 Jews in. Valparaiso.
