that it represented the high
command's refusal to accept
new ideas and groom new
leadership.
In addition to the ex-serv-
icemen, dissident movements
are surfacing among univer-
sity faculty members, prac-
ticing lawyers, teachers and
psychologists.
Though claiming to be non
political, they are talking
about running for the Knes-
set. Their stated purpose is
to effect changes in the na-
tional leadership, or at least
in its decision-making proc-
esses.
Some observers think it is
only a matter of time before
the academicians join forces
with the veterans' organiza-
tions.

NEW YORK—Elmer Gertz,
the Chicago attorney who
gained a parole for Nathan
Leopold, a death-sentence
commutation for Jack Ruby
and notoriety for his part in
the Henry Miller obscenity
trials, reminisces about his
childhood, family, friends, co-
horts, enemies — in a candid
autobiography, "To Life," a
McGraw-Hill publication.

Gertz's career of more
than 40 years has been dotted
with support of unpopular
causes, but even against the
toughest cases he has been
successful.
Famous not only as a
lawyer, Gertz is the author
of several previous books,
among them "Moment of
Madness: the People vs.
Jack Ruby" and "Harris: A
Study in Black and White."
