Becker's 'Dog Tags' Full of Crises
and Same Old. Moral Dilemmas

Dr. Benjamin Beer's dog
tags clearly identified him to
the rest of the world as an
American soldier, but in Dr.
Beer's own mind he is still
trying to figure out from
life's dilemmas who he is.
This and other crises in-
cluding love, war and faith
confront Dr. Beer in Stephen
Becker's "Dog Tags" pub-
lished by Random House.
Beer, son of a Jewish tailor
in New York, is introduced
to his first crisis, that of war,
during World War II when he
is "a lost straggler from a
lost platoon" somewhere in
Central Europe. While hiding
from .a bitter winter cold, and
probably the Germans too,
Benny hears footsteps out-
side his shelter.
Running outside, he finds
a half-frozen old man. He
wonders who the man could
be. "A Jew? A politician? A
traffic ticket? In this insane
country, how could you
know?" Benny knew. He
opened the man's jacket, and
found no name but a number,
57359—a German.
Now the dilemma: Does
Benny, a man and a. Jew, but
still a patriotic American, let
the man live or kill hiin be-
cause he is the enemy? He
nurses the man, who dies la-
ter from exposure. For his
trouble, Benny is shot by
enemy fire.
Decorated, Benny returns
home, goes to medical school,
meets and marries Carol Un-
termeyer, daughter of Amos

Marx Brothers Get
an Oscar—at Last
Jewish Contracts

HOLLYWOOD — An hon-
orary Oscar was presented
to the Marx Brothers for
"their brilliance and lasting
contribution to the motion
picture art" at the Academy
Award presentation Tuesday
night.
The award was accepted
by 83-year-old. Groucho Marx
on behalf of himself and his
late brothers, Harpo, Chico
and Gummo. They had never
received an Oscar for their
many comedy films.
The Irving G. Thalberg
Memorial Award for consist-
ently high caliber of produc-
tion was awarded to long-
time producer Lawrence
''Weingarten.

Untermeyer, "eminent intern-
ist and professor," and be-
comes a doctor. After a
year's blissful marriage, Ben-
ny is called up once again—
to Korea.
In Korea, Benny, now Dr.
Beer, faces a critical deci-
sion. He is captured by the
Koreans and is a prisoner of
war for two years, during
which he concedes to POW
camp officers to get food for
his soldiers and himself. Dr.
Beer later faces a board of
inquiry on possible charges
of treason — consorting with
the enemy.
This section of the book=
Beer in Korea—is out of place
in the otherwise chronological
order. However, another mis-
take author Becker makes is
not ending the book at the
point Benny returns home.
Following Beer's return
from Korea, he takes up
practice in New York as a
pediatrician. He suffers acute
lechery — does he want to
love or not, and if so, whom—
and gets involved in other
situations that would make
for another book.
"Dog Tags," inappropriate-
ly titled according to what
goes on in the book, tells
nothing new about the moral
dilemmas of man, i.e., to kill
or not to kill, to love or not
to love, or to be one thing
and not another. A com-
pletely war-centered book, or,
for that matter, the life of a
lecherous Jewish New York
pediatrician, would make for
much more interesting read

The term "tenaim" techni-
cally means "conditions."
The general reference is to
some form of contract where
conditions are set forth form-
ing the obligations of two
parties. What is popularly re-
ferred to as "tenaim" are the
conditions which are agreed
upon in planning a forthcom-
ing wedding. The signing of
such a contract of conditions
is something like a formal
engagement. The conditions
include things like the date
and the place of the marriage
as well as the financial obli-
gations which would be
agreed upon as binding upon
both the bride and bride-
groom and especially between
their respective parents in
financing the wedding and
providing for the newly-mar-
ried couple.
The "tenaim" contract usu-
ally carries a penalty clause
in the event the conditions
are not met. This contract is
so binding and the release
from it difficult that rab-
bis advise a divorce after
the wedding instead of a
breach` of this contract by
not having the wedding take
place.
