Detective Stories, Palindromes,
Anagrams, Epitaphs Published

Palindromes are sentences
that read the same—back-
wards and forwards. Some
famous examples from Ho-
ward W. Bergerson's "Palin-
dromes and Anagrams," is-
sued as a Dover paperback,
follow:
—A man, a plan, a canal,
Panama.
—Dennis and Edna sinned.
—Red rum, sir, is murder.
—Live not on evil, madam,
live not on evil.
—Able was I ere I saw Elba.
'7as it a rat I saw?
_Jo lemons, no melon.
—Lepers repel.
—Sums are not set as a test
on Erasmus.
And anagram's, a popular
literary form throughout his-
tory, are re-arrangements of
the letters of a word (or
words):
—Desperation. A rope ends
it.
—Is pity love? Positively!
—The nudist colony. No un-
tidy clothes.
—Sedimentary. Many see
dirt.
— Moonlight. Thin Gloom.
—Admirer. Married.
—Gold and Silver. Grand old
evils.
—The lost paradise. Earth's
ideal spot.
—Maple sugar. Real sap gum.
Linguists, searchers for
word meanings, those who
are certain to be fascinated
by many of the palindromes
in this interesting book will
be especially intrigued by
this one:
Are we not drawn on-
wards, we Jews, drawn on-
ward to new era?
Now read it back and have
fun!
And there are these:
Harass sensuousness,
Sarah.
Norah's foes order red
rose of Sharon.
"Palindromes a n d Ana-
grams" contains more than
1,100 different anagrams and
nearly as many palindromes
—in short sentences, poetry,
a short story, playlet, even
suggestions from a palin-
dromic opera, plus such oth-
er literary games as chara-
des, circular reversals, voca-
bularyclepts, word-unit palin-
dromes and more.
Here are the works of the
finest historical and contem-
porary palindromists and
anagrarnmatists — including
J. A. Lindon, George Mar-
vill, Graham Reynolds, Erik
Bodin, Leigh Mercer, Dmitri
Borgmann, John Wardroper,
Dr. A. Ross Eckler and
Howard Bergerson.

"Tools and Their Uses,"
originally prepared for the
use of U.S. naval personnel,
is now available as a Dover
paperback. It was designed
to present the basic hand
And power tools that the or-
dinary person is likely to
use. Through a wealth of
diagrams, clear explanations,
safety tips and operating in-
structions you will soon learn
the basics of choosing tools
and use them as they were
meant to be used.

art and good writing.
In Berchen's "M a i n e"
there is the combination of
artistic skill with splendid
narrative. Not only lovers of
the state of Maine but all
who are interested in the best
in America will be delighted
by this book.

American Epitaphs

Dover Publications issued
a most interesting collection
of "American Epitaphs —
Grave and Humorous."
Gathered under a variety
of chapter titles by Charles
I. Wallis, this volume pro-
vides entertainment. Amidst
many laughs there is also
historical value to this work
because of the many emi-
nent Americans represented
epitaphically.
There is, among the less
notable, this one from the
Emerson, N. J., Cedar Park
Cemetery:
Charlotte Stern
Born Nov. 19, 1869 in Ger-
many. Died Feb. 23, 1939 on
board ship bringing her to
the Land of Liberty and
buried in these United
States.
March 5, 1939
While much in the book is
hilarious, a great deal re-
flects upon historic experi-
ences, love of country, dedi-
cation to service.

Film on David Ben-Gurion, Is Found Wanting

By DAVID FRIEDMAN
JTA Staff Writer

(Copyright 1573, JTA, Inc.)

NEW YORK — It was pure
coincidence that the Israeli-
made film, "Ben-Gurion Re-
members," opened here in
three theaters when Israel
was at war again. Although
timed to coincide with Ben-
Gurion's 87th birthday, the
film takes added meaning
now as the life of the man
who, As Israel's prime min-

Tekoah Recovering
From Pneumonia

NEW YORK (JTA)—Yosef
Tekoah, Israel's ambassador
to the United Nations, was
reported Tuesday to be in
"good condition" by a
spokesman for Mt. Sinai Hos-
pital, where' the envoy has
been for the past two weeks.
A spokesman for the Israel
Mission to the UN said that
Tekoah had been suffering
from viral pneumonia. He
said he could not make the
disclosure earlier because he
had been under instructions
nat to reveal Tekoah's ill-
ness. Tekoah was taken to
the hospital Nev. 5 after ad-
dressing a rally in the city's
Garment District on Israeli
prisoners of war.

ister, was dedicated to the
policy that the Jewish people
will never suffer a Holocaust
again.
It is unfortunate that this
film — written by Michael
Bar Zohar, a well-known Is-
raeli journalist and former
press officer for Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan, and
the film's producer-director,
Simon Hesera—is not better.
For those who have only
a limited knowledge of Ben-
Gurion or Israel the film
offers a good, although super
ficial history of the pre-state
Yishuv and Israel's first 25
years.

as those showing Ben-Gurion
revisiting the various places
of his life.
There was a good segment
with Ben-Gurion commenting
on world leaders he met in-
cluding American presidents.
He is shown with a young
Richard Nixon, then vice
president.
Finally Ben-Gurion pre-
dicts that peace will come to
the Middle East when the
Arabs realize they need it as
much as Israel.

Elderly Get Low-Cost
Vacations in Florida

NEW YORK (JTA) — Six
hundred aged New York
Jewish men and women, with
an average annual income
of less than $4,000 will have
winter vacations in Florida
this year in a program spon-
sored by the Associated
Camps, a division of the As-
sociated Ys of Greater New
York. Barnet Lambert, ex-
ecutive director of the As-
sociated Camps, said the 600
vacationers left Nov. 20 by
jet plane for a two-week
stay in Miami Beach. He
said that the all-inclusive
vacations cost $300 and for
those who cannot afford that
low fee, Associated Camps
provide grants.

The basic failure of the
film is that it does not live
up to its title. There are
scenes of Ben-Gurion remin-
iscing with Premier Golda

man Shazar, Foreign Minis-
ter Abba Eban, Dayan, Gen.

Although the entire film is
in English, every time Ben-
Gurion speaks there are sub-
titles, usually saying the
same thing as Ben-Gurion,
but not as well.
There were, of course,
