Waldheim Pledges to Continue
Efforts for POWs Held in Syria

Black Caucus Reps
Hailed for Support
of $2.2 Billion Bill

Hungarian Paper Hits Qaddafi
for Tou g h Position on Israel

UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
— Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim h a s promised
American Jewish leaders he
will continue his efforts in
behalf of Israeli prisoners of
war held by Syria, it was
reported.
Jacob Stein, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations, said a Jewish
delegation had met for over

NEW YORK (JTA)—Rep.
Edward I. Koch, addressing
more than 300 at a forum co-
sponsored by the Central Syn-
agogue and the American
Jewish Committee, reiterated
the contention that the Amer-
ican arms lift saved Israel,
and that in the first two days
of the Yom Kippur War, it
was the individual courage of
the Israeli that prevented a
catastrophic military defeat
for Israel.
Koch, who was in Israel
during the Thanksgiving re-
cess as a member of the in-
ternational trade sub-com-
mittee of the House Banking
and Currency Committee,
met with Premier Golda Meir
and numerous government
and military officials.
Focusing on the over-
whelming congressional sup-
port of the $2,200,000,000 ap-
propriation for Israel, Koch
praised the Black Congres-
sional Caucus, and noted that
13 of the 16 members of the
Black Caucus supported the
appropriation.

BUDAPEST ( J T A ) —
Libyan President Muammar
el-Qaddafi's extreme position
on Israel has been sharply
criticized by one of Hun-
gary's major weeklies. Ac-
cording to "Magyaror Szag,"
"Qaddafi speaks about Israel
in a manner which cannot be
accepted by any normal na-
tion today."

Dutch University
Vetoes Aid to Israel

AMSTERDAM (JTA)—The
council of Amsterdam Uni-
versity voted down a propos-
al for "humanitarian support
for the entire population of
Israel" during its recent
meeting here. The council
consists of representatives
from both the administration
and the student body.
Observers noted that the
council recently passed a
proposal for providing sub-
stantial financial aid to the
University of Hanoi.
In its recent meeting the
delegates from the left-wing
controlled students associa-
tion all voted against the
proposal, while 11 others ab-
stained because they felt the
matter had little connection
with the activities of the uni-
versity.

an hour with the UN official
to convey the U. S. Jewish
community's "deep concern
over the refusal of the Syrian
government to furnish a list
of Israeli prisoners held and
to permit visits by the Inter-
national Red Cross."
At the meeting, in Wald-
heim's office. "the secretary
general gave an account of
his efforts to find a solution
to this humanitarian prob-
lem and stated that these
efforts would continue,"
Stein said.
Stein was accompanied by
Rabbi Israel Miller, vice
chairman, and Yehuda Hell-
man, executive director of
the Conference of Presidents.
In Amsterdam, the Labor
Party asked the Soviet Union
to use its influence with
Syria to help resolve the Is-
raeli prisoner of war issue.
The number of Israeli
POWs in Syria is believed to
be a little more than 100 but
many reports indicate that
many of them may have been
tortured or killed by the
Syrians.
Labor Party Chairman
Andre van der Low told the
Soviet ambassador he is ask-
ing the Soviet Union to inter-
vene "because I appreciate
the positive role your govern-
ment is playing in bringing
about Israeli-Egyptian nego-
tiations, and am convinced
you will understand our view
that the cloud created by the
Israeli POWs in Syria must
not threaten the peace
climate in Geneva."
The Dutch labor broad-
casting company "Vara," in
a recent television program
devoted to the plight of Is-
raeli POWs in Syria, rapped
the Paris Match feature al-
leging that the prisoners are
in satisfactory condition.
The TV program quastion-
ed the credibility of the
French journalist's conclu-
sions based on interviewing
seven Israeli POWs of 100 or
so believed to be in Syria.
The program also rapped
Syria.



Interfaith Effort
to Tackle Fallout
of Energy Crisis

NEW YORK (JTA)—Gath:
erings of Christian and Jew-
ish leaders to consider prob-
lems common to both stem-
ming from the energy crisis
and to plan interfaith pro-
grams to deal with such
problems are being sought in
every part of the United
States, according to an Amer-
ican Jewish Committee offi-
cial.
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum,
director of the AJC's inter-
religious affairs department,
said the results of an initial
exploratory conference of
such leaders was being of-
fered as a framework for
such meetings.
Among the possible by-
products of the energy crisis
are an economic recession
and joblessness, which will
affect the budgets and prior-
ities of _churches and syna-
gogues; and a genuine possi-
bility "not only for class con-
flict growing out of a demand
for economic security, but
for inter-racial disruption as
well."
Tanenbaum asserted that
the potential existed and, in
fact, "is being exploited for
holding the Israelis and the
Jewish supporters collective-
ly responsible for the inter-
national energy crisis."
Dr. Robert W. Huston, as-
sociate general secretary of
the United Methodist Board
of Global Ministries, told the
meeting that campus minis-
ters have contacted him to
express concern about the po-
tential anti-Semitic fallout of
the energy crisis and have
sought advice and assistance
both to counter and antici-
pate such problems.

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — The
recent war with its deep
psychological shocks proved
again that Israelis are re-
markably calm under stress
according to Prof. Noach
Milgram, head of Tel Aviv
University's department cf
psychology.
In a lecture at ZOA House
sponsored jointly with the
Tel Aviv municipality as
part of a series on "Israel
During the Emergency" he
said Israelis should continue
in their normal peacetime
activities as much as pos-
sible. The best activities, he
feels, are those which are
most relevant to the situa-
tion, such as volunteering for

activities and entertainment. son.

That observation, appear-
ing in one of the most im-
portant publications of an
East European Communist
bloc state, has contributed
to a growing feeling in some

Army to Get Radio
Parts From Israel

NEW YORK — Sefolam,
Ltd., a subsidiary of Indus-
tries and Investments of
Sefen, Ltd., an Israeli manu-
facturer, has been granted
the status of an approved
manufacturer and supplier
to the U. S. Army by the
U.S. Defense Supply Agency.
Sefen, Ltd. manufactures
laminated plastic boards,
soft boards, hard boards and
insulation materials. It is
one-third owned by Israel
Development Corp. (Ameri-
can Stock Exchange), a
clOsed-end, regulated invest-
ment company specializing
in Israeli economic enter-
prises.
Sefolam manufactures spe:
cialty glass boards coated
with epoxy and copper used
by the electronics industry
in making printed circuits
for radios and transistorized
communications equipment.
The Israel Army has been
using the boards for the
manufacture of communica-
tions equipment and found
the product able to with-
stand wide extremes in tem-
perature. The army chose
Sefolam after exhaustive
tests of the boards.

circles that a softening of the
Communist line toward Israel
is emerging, possibly at
Soviet instigation.
(The JTA reported from
Brussels that Communist
Party organs in Belgium are
circulating a text, relatively
sympathetic to Israel, though
critical of its policies, reput-
ed to have been written by
Communists of Jewish ori-
gin.)
The Hungarian prc..ss in
general expressed surprise
and skepticism over the an-
nounced merger of Libya and
Tunisia. Commenting on the
move, the Communist Party
newspaper "Nepiszabadsag"
saw the union of the two
North African countries as
"incompatible" and describ-
ed the merger as an attempt
by Qaddafi to "restore his
shattered authority."
Another paper said that if
"impatient Qaddafi should
decide to impose his experi-
ence on (President Habib)
Bourguiba (of Tunisia) the
results would be catastroph-
ic." The paper said that Qad-
dafi, "is couting on outliving
him and taking over the
presidency" of the merged
countries.
Meanwhile, in Washington,
Rep. Benjamin S. Rosenthal
( D N. Y. ) contrasting the
American and Soviet posi-
tions towards the nations of
the Middle East, said he be-
lieves that Moscow should
end its hostility toward Israel
and re-establish diplomatic
relations with her.
Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger, he said, "has open-
ed a dialogue with the Arabs
which is more than the
Soviets have been attempted
with Israel. If the Soviet
Union is to be a guarantor of
any settlement she cannot ex-
pect any trust of status if
she continues to refuse to
maintain normal diplomatic
relations with Israel."
