Dayan, Yadlin Face Protests


mer Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan was rescued by se-
curity guards last week from
a building on the Bar-Ilan
University campus that was
beseiged by parents who
blamed him for the deaths
of their sons in the Yom Kip.
pur War.
About 200 demonstrators,
mostly women, burst through
police cordons around the
campus and surrounded the
building where Dayan was to
hive lectured on "The in-
volvement of the major
powers in Arab-Israeli rela-
tions." They prevented his
departure for more than two

Now Booking . .

In another incident, Edu-
cation Minister Aharon Yad-
lin was hooted by Arab stu-
dents during a lecture at
Haifa University. His experi-
ence was similar to that of
Premier Yitzhak Rabin who
was heckled by Arab stu-
dents in Nazareth several
weeks ago.
When Yadlin criticized
Arab students who supported
Yasir Arafat and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization,
he was greeted with catcalls
from Arab youths which
sparked counter shouting
from Jewish students. Arab
students rose and left the lec-
ture hall in a body. Yadlin
continued his lecture with
only Jewish students present.

Cheerfulness is like money
well expended in charity;
the more we dispense of it,
the greater our possession.—

JDC Relief Ongoing Despite Economy

D. Weiler, the newly-elected
chairman of the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, said in
an interview that the JDC
will continue its ongoing pro-
grams but will seek to help
Jews in other countries as
Faced 'with conditions ex-
ternal to JDC, such as infla-
tion and the enormous re-
quirement for and within Is-
rael itself, Weiler said this
has not affected the basic
work of- the JDC.
He characterized the sixty-
year-old relief agency as
one faced with huge "prior-
ities," such as where do you
go and whom do you help
first and for this, the present
budget of just under $30 mil-
lion is hardly enough.
He reminded this inter-
viewer that in 1947 the JDC
operated on a budget of $71
million to facilitate the res-
cue and rehabilitation of
Jews surviving the Holocaust.
Today, however, a major
concern in this area is the
human needs of Jews corn-
ing out of the Soviet Union.
Of these there are three
classes. Those who are en-
route to Israel and are in
Rome. They are housed and
fed. Likewise those leaving
the Soviet Union for other
countries. However, Jews

who have emigrated from the
Soviet Union for Israel and
then left Israel, receive no
relief from JDC.
Weiler emphasized that re-
lief and transit are major
JDC emphases and that con-
centration must be kept to
workable programs with no
political side effects.
He said economic condi-
tions in the United States as
in Israel are a matter of
anxiety to the work of JDC
and that, while devaluation
in Israel has been helpful,
the inflationary process has
eaten into any benefits result.
ing from it.
Asked whether there was
any "fat" in the JDC budget,
in view of the intense con-
cern in the States today about
such matters, he said there
couldn't be especially since
it was functioning on a finan-
cial level much lower than
earlier years.
He said it was important,
nevertheless. to maintain
basic functions and cited
proudly the medical staff
working for JDC in its vari-
ous installations as part of
the total attention given to
JDC beneficiares.
Weiler ranged over the
variety and geography of
JDC's programs and when
asked how the JDC made up
its budget, he said is was
done by the Executive Com-
mittee. The actual monies

JDC then receives come from
the United Jewish Appeal in
this country and from spe-
cial funds in other countries.
Some communities are able
to take care of their own,
like the German - Jews, but
he said there would be an
examination of the JDC pro-
gram for wider and perhaps
more innovative - activity
such as in countries where
JDC at the moment is not
officially acceptable.
Weiler said he also intend-
ed to make on-the-spot visits
to key and unsual JDC in-
stallations from which he
will report directly through
the media rather than only
assembling a report for later
circulation. Meanwhile, he
pointed out, JDC aid to the
bodies and souls of Jews con--
tinues at the same concen-
trated pace.

Moon Crater Named

REHOVOT — Recently is-
