Now while Tom Kin
is making music,
Milt Tyner will
be making ribs.

You already know Tom King. Sure you
do. He's the guy who's been sitting at
the piano bar filling your cocktail hours
at the Scotch with more than just
wonderful cocktails. Now Tom will be
playing and singing even more. All
through dinner hour, all the way
until 2:00 am.
So who's Milt Tyner and what's he doing
in our famous rib kitchen? The truth is
that Milt's been into his own famous rib
kitchens for a very long time, and now
will be in ours every Sunday and
Monday. He's all ours. And all yours. He
promises to make the Scotch ribs you
love the Scotch ribs you love even more.

Hopelessness of Downtrodden in USSR ...Shtet1
Life in New Form Reconstructed in Sevela Tales

Tales with lessons from
the Russian past and present,
each with a deeply moving
moral, by Efraim Sevela, are
akin to the shtetl meshalim
— to Old World fables. Like
the old shtetl stories, they
are realities.
In Sholem Aleichem, in
the Yiddish literature, they
were about Kasrilevke and
Menahem Mendel. In Sevela
they are tales from the bar-
ber shop and Invalid Street.
Relatedly, they are 'about
Jews under oppression, aris-
ing from despair, The author
does not leave his reader
hopeless.
In the Doubleday-published
"L cgends from Invalid
Street," translated from the
Russian by Anthony Kahn,
Sevela starts with legends
stemming from Barber Shop
Number 1 — from Droga
daSzczescia — the Road to
Happiness. The second por-
tion perpetuates stories from
the Vilna Invalid Street. Now
it is Friedrich Engels Street.
Marxism has taken over.
But the tradition remains.
Sevela reconstructs to expose
the anti-Semitic trends, the
Jewish nostalgia, the re-
mains of an old life. To
Sevela the street remains
Invalid. And the cast of
characters emerges to point
an accusing finger at a
world, especially the Com-
munist, that denies the Jew
the right to exist.

As narratives revealing the
human aspects of a people
under duress — the Jews! —
in an atmosphere of degrada-
tion — the Russian!—Sevela
not only recounts the experi-
ences and the feelings of a
people downgraded but aspir-
ing to life: he exposes the
crime of enmity, hatred, in-
difference that stems from
the people from whom he
has parted. Sevela now lives
in Jerusalem with his actress
wife and two children. He
was among the 19 Jews who
occupied the Moscow Su-
preme Court chambers in
1971, demanding the right to
emigrate to Israel, and suc-
ceeded!
But he had started as an
orphan whose parents died
in the last war; he had be-
longed to the Communist
youth; he was in the Russian
army; he started as a car-
penter, became a journalist,
apparently learned the truth
about his people's status, ac-
quired some Yiddish knowl-
edge, set forth his views
firmly — in his demand for
emigration and now reveal-
ing the status of the people
he has left behind.
It is not all hopeless. He
tells, in one of his stories,
of having accidentally crush
ed a little Jewish boy's
scoop, and the lad, hands on
hips, called out: "You old
jerk!" Then Sevela knew
"everything was far from
lost."
He tells about the whistler,
the whistling concert, and an
elderly Jewish lady's com-
ment: "Next to the death of
Stalin, it was the greatest
event in the life of our
town." All this about Invalid
Street: Doesn't it echo the
shtetl stories?
There also is an impas
sioned plea in Sevela's per-
sonal asseveration. Since
there has been survival for
non-Jews on. Invalid Street,
"why can't a humane man-
kind extend the law to cover
Jews who've pulled through?
There are just a few of them
left. Implement the law and
let them live."
He lists the geniuses Jews
gave to the world, from
Jesus to Marx to Einstein to
Chagall, "and Invalid Street,
which once made the world
a nicer place to live." And
he offers a promise: "We'll

for di, ner.
How human! How elo-

heard before. Hasn't it al-
ways fallen on deaf ears?

Absorption Staff
Incorrectly Picked?

BUENOS AIRES (JTA) —
Mordecai Dayan, secretary-
general of the Liberal Party
in Israel, charged that one
of the reasons for the diffi-
culties in absorbing new im-
migrants in Israel is that
most absorption officials
come from kibutzim while
most new immigrants go to
towns and cities.
He said the Liberal Party,
which is a 'member of Likud,
believes new officials are
needed with a different type
of mentality.
Dayan, here for Aliya
Month, said he did not be-
lieve that the Latin American
Jewish communities were in
crisis but that their leaders
suffered from inertia and
conformism.
