After Retirement: Potpourri About
GoIda, Eban, the Late Prof. Gottheil

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright 1974, JTA, Inc.)

What does a prime minis-
ter or a member of a cabinet
do after retirement? Some
Israelis must ponder that

question now.

tract with a British company

which Putnam will issue in
America. Maybe Golda could

Abba Eban, although re-
tiring from his cabinet post,
but still a member of Israel's
parliament, the Knesset, is
getting a part-time teaching
job in the political science
department of Columbia Uni-
versity. Eban's diplomatic
experience no doubt makes
him especially valuable to
Columbia. But we have
another teaching job in mind
for Eban. It might be worth
while for the Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem to offer
a course in English taught
by Eban. Many Americans
would be glad to go to Israel
to study under this master of
the English language.
Maybe El Al could adver-
tise: Go to Israel. Learn

Does anyone speak a bet-
ter English than Eban since
the day of Shakespeare?
* * *
Perhaps Eban does not
know it, but about 40 years
ago, Columbia University had
a Zionist on its faculty, Prof.
Richard Gottheil. At that
time, he was the only Jew
on the faculty. Gottheil was
a "German Jew," as they
were called—and there were
not many of them who were
Zionists. The Zionists were
very proud of him and
elected him vice-president of
the American Federation of
Zionists.
Gottheil was a very meth-
odical man and stories were
told about his eccentricity
that way. It was said, he had
two desks in his office, one
for his general affairs and
one having to do with his
Zionist correspondence. If
you came to his office to talk
with him, if the conversation
dealt with Zionism, he would
get up instantly and move to
his Zionist desk.

Boston to Host
AZF Pa rley

NEW YORK — The third
national convention of the
American Zionist Federation
will be held Oct. ° 26-28, at
the Statler Hilton Hotel in
Boston.
Rabbi Israel Miller, AZF
president, said that the theme
of the convention will be "The
Zionist Program for Today
and Tomorrow."
The outlining and
mention of the AZF's ex-
panded programs and
projects for the next two
years, especially in such
areas as Aliyah, Information,
Soviet Jewry, Youth and Ed-
ucation w ill highlight the
gathering. Delegates will
have an opportunity to par-
ticipate in Commissions and
Workshops where they will
help in determining future
programs. Many of the delib-
erations will be conducted
against the background of
today's tense and uncertain
Middle East situation.

CJFWF Discusses
Community Issues

NEW YORK—Staff mem-
bers of 20 major Jewish
federations and welfare funds
are meeting here under the
auspices of the Council of
Jewish Federations and Wel-
are - Funds or a five-day
practicum on campaigning,
budgeting and community
planning and their interrela-
tionships.
Philip Bernstein, executive
vice president of the CJF,
said that the nine working
sessions will be devoted to
the major challenges that
face our local central Jew-
ish organizations in dealing
with the evolving Jewish com-
munity — raising the neces-
sary funds for total Jewish
needs and planning budget-
ing wisely for their use.

WELL EQUIPPED
Ambition and enthusiasm
are the best tools in the kit
of those who want to reach
the top.

One member of Israel's
cabinet who is not retiring
but rather has been ad-
vanced is minister of de-
fense, Shimon Peres. When
Dr. Kissinger last visited Is-
rael, he remarked to Peres
that he remembered meeting
him 30 years before at a
hotel in Tel Aviv, "when we
were spoken of as promising
young men."
"Well," remarked Peres,
"one of us made it."
We don't know what kind
of Minister of Defense Peres
will make but we have al-
ways admired his wit — and
the cabinets of the whole
world would be improved by
a little wit.
