`Don't Stop!' Call Marks Continuing Allied Campaign Tasks

(Continued from Page 1)
Miss Dayan said that she
accepts assignments to
American cities to speak in
behalf of UJA unqualifiedly,
but that she asked to be as-
signed to Detroit for two
reasons: it gave her an op-

portunity to visit with her
brother-in-law, Dr. Zwi Stei-
ger and his family, in South-
field, and to see the recent
arrival in the family with the
birth of the Steigers' second
child; and to be in the city of
Paul Zuckerman. She praised

diately after the meeting for a special Prime Minister's
mission to Israel. Sharing the conversation are, from left,

Appeal and Dr. Leon Fill, vice-chairman of the 1974 Allied
Jewish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund. In the back-

campaign co-chairman Philip T. Warren.

Rosenberg Sons Hope to Start
Committee to Reopen Case

NEW YORK —With a re-
awakened interest in the trial
and execution of Julius and
Ethel Rosenberg on a charge
of passing atomic bomb in-
formation to the Russians,
the two Rosenberg sons have
mounted a campaign to seek
legal vindication of their
parents.
The brothers, Michael and
Robbie Meeropol (the name
of their adoptive parents),
appeared in a recent televi-
sion documentary on the Ros-
enberg case. They are suing
lawyer Louis Nizer for $3,000,
000 for copyright infringe
ments and invasion of pri-
vacy in his recent book on
the case, "The Implosion
Conspiracy."
Michael, 30, is a PhD in
economic history, teaching at
Western New England Col-
lege in Springfield, Mass.
Robbie, 26, is working on his
PhD in anthropology and
also teaches at Western New
England. He attended the
University of Michigan and
once was arrested in a dem-
onstration in behalf of wel-
fare mothers. Both men are
married. •
Explaining to the Associ-
ated Press why they are pur-
suing the case, Robbie said

12—Friday, March 15, 1974

he and his -brother are con-
vinced of their parents' in-
nocence" and we wanted to
clear our names. One of the
things we are planning to do
is start a national committee
to reopen the case. No one
who believes our parents in-
nocent has had subpoena
power since 1951."
The stifling of dissent con-
cerns them. Said Michael:
"It snowballs. First you sup-
press Communists, than radi-
cals, then the peace people,
then the Democrats and who
knows where it will stop?
Well, if we can show the first
step, our parents' case, was
a lie, maybe we can stop it.
---!`The people who prosecut-
ed the case were criminals.
They suborned perjury. In
fact they were guilty of con-
spiracy to commit murder."
Why didn't the Rosenbergs
confess to save their lives?
Said Michael: "It would have
been a living death for them
to have confessed a wrong
and look into our eyes."

"Let our eyes behold thy
return in mercy to Zion.
Blessed art thou, 0 Lord,
who restorest thy divine pre-
sence unto Zion." — From
Daily Prayer Book.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Zuckerman's untiring efforts
as having contributed in
greatest significance to Is-
rael's life and security.
Reporting to the gathering
on the impressive results of
their divisions' activities
were Irwin Kahn, Joseph
Garson, Milton Barnett, Ben
Mandel, Bruce E. Thal, Bur-
ton D. Farbman, Morris
Friedman and Mrs. Merle
Harris.
Only two hours before he
and George Zeltzer were to
leave for Israel as members
of the Prime Minister's Mis-
sion, Arthur Howard - ap-
peared at Sunday morning's
report meeting to call for di-
visions'_ reports. Howard and
Zeltzer/will return from Is-
rael on time for the - closing
campaign dinner meeting
Monday.
Speaking briefly at Sun-
day's meeting, in behalf of
the youth leadership group,
Joel Tauber referred to the
three Detroiters—Allan Nach-
man, Dr. Sheldon Sonkin and
Irwin Alterman — who were
among the mission members
who were detained in Egypt
for 10 hours, on Feb. 26, and
were questioned by the Egyp-
tians about the UJA, Israel
and Zionism before they
were released.
Yael Dayan's effective ad-
dress, given as a post-Purim
message with emphasis on
the approaching Passover,
was divided into Mah Nish-
tana and a Mah Lo Nishtana
interpretive analyses related
to Israel's roles in the recent
wars and in the nation's nor-
mal life.
Her address was a defense
of the military and political
decisions which had become
matters of dispute in
months. It was not a matter
of preparedness and mobili-
zation, she declared, that af-
fected the outcome. She
maintained that the results
would have been the same.
She said Israel learned the
hard way that quality is not
enough, that "quantity is
more important when a sin-
gle one of our planes is
forced to face up to 50 or
100 enemy planes."
-
"We had and we have su-
perior quality, but quantity
matters very much," she
stated; pointing- to the large
amounts of planes, tanks and
munitions that were poured
into the Arab countries by
Russia.
At the same time, she em-
phasized the importance of
retaining American friend-
ship and not risking it with
preemptive attacks.
Asserting that in spite of
the heavy losses and the cost
of the war, Miss Dayan main-
tained that the victory was
Israel's. "But we realized
that war is not a solution,"
she added. "No war is posi-
tive. But out of the present
war came, for the first time,
a change in mood, a differ-
ence in intentions. While
everything was in the Arabs'
favor, they nevertheless lost
the war and they are at last
willing to meet with us. After
25 years we are more opti-
mistic because we reached
an agreement."
"The best barrier to war is
civilian life," Miss Dayan
said. "That's how it works
with Jordan—the normal ci-
vilian life that divides the
armies. If .the Egyptian cities

will as we hope be resettled,
if the ships begin sailing (in
the Suez), there will be a
better chance for an agree-
ment."
Quoting Israel Finance
Minister Pinhas Sapir's esti-
mate that the Yom Kippur
War cost Israel a year's na-
tional income, and pointing
to the 80 per cent rise in the
cost of living — the basic
costs, for bread, milk, , etc.—
Miss Dayan nevertheless re-
referred to the good spirit of
normality in Israel.
It was on this score that
she spoke of the mah lo
nishtana
What has not
changed. She said , the last
war was not a war for sur-
vival. "Our survival is not at
stake," she declared. "We
are fighting for the kind cf
land we are to live in and
into which we are to wel-
come new immigrants. There
is a difference 'between pain
and despair. We are pained
by our losses, we have a lot
of pain and we mourn our
dead, but we don't despair.''
Expressing 'happiness over
the support Israel received
from the United States and
the continuing American
friendship, Miss Dayan ex-
pressed the hope or its con-
tinuity, whether from the
present administration or
whoever will succeed it. She
expressed gratitude for the
role of Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and the
"active U.S. participation in
reaching a peaceful solu-
tion."
"Prof. Kissinger is doing
the right thing," she said.
"We had many peace plans
that were not accepted, and
if they are not accepted by
the Arabs we cannot medi-
ate. He has achieved more
in the last few months than
has been attained = ever be-
fore."
The Israel-world Jewry re-
lationships, the family spirit,
was utilized by Miss Dayan
for the Todah—the thank you
she brought to the gathering
from Israel.
