Anti-Zionist Editorial in Student Paper Won't Affect Haifa U. Ties

MILWAUKEE (JTA)—An
editorial in the student nevv._

Wisconsin in Madison, assail-
ing plans for an exchange re-
lationship between the uni-
versity and the University of
Haifa and describing Israel
as "a colonial-settler state,"
will have no effect on those
plans, the Wisconsin univer-

Chancellor Werner Baum

ady within a few months,
according to the Wisconsin
Jewish Chronicle. Baum said
the decision would be made
on educational, not political
grounds.
The editorial, written by
Tom Maurer, denounced
the university administration's
approach to the proposed tie
with the Israeli school and
its "serious political implica-
tions."
Maurer asked why "mem-

Zuckerman Relates Confidence
in Jewish Unity After Israel Trip

NEW YORK , Paul Zuck-
erman, general chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal,
upon his return from the
Jerusalem session of the
World Assembly of the Jew-
ish Agency, issued a state-
ment upon his return to the
United States:
"I can only be encouraged
by my experiences at the
assembly and from traveling
around Israel these last few
days. No longer is there talk
of weariness, or of exhaus-
tion, as there was last winter.
"This is as it should be,
for in fact there is nothing
to be tired of. We can hardly
be tired of life. We surely
cannot be tired of the Jew-
ish values and visions that
give our lives meaning. We
most certainly cannot be
tired of the miracle that is
Israel or of our newly forti-
fied Jewishness.
"If there was ever any
genuine weariness in our
community, it has been re-
placed with a growing sense
of solidarity, of oneness with

Maurer has written earlier

Isaac Lakritz, a member of
the student board of the Jew-

campus, said "Maurer has
been living in a New Left

or six years."
Liakritz said he doubted the
editorial would have any sig-

He said about 10 per cent
of the other students might

Israel tone of the editorial.
