Scotland Yard Probes Shootings at Jewish-Owned London Hotels

LONDON, (JTA) — Scot-
land Yard is investigating
machingun attacks on two
Jewish-owned West End ho-
tels Sunday where seven
women and one man were
slightly injured by bullets
and flying glass. A spokes-
man said "It is a fair assump-
tion that there is a connec-
tion between the two inci-
dents." Detectives were re-
porteily looking into possi-
ble anti-Semitic or anti-Is-
rael aspects of the attacks.
More than 200 young Jews
were attending a dance at
the Portman Hotel when the
attackers sprayed machine-
gun fire in the hotel restau-
rant. Three hours later ma-
chineguns were fired into the
restaurant at the Carlton
Towers Hotel where a Jew-
ish wedding reception was
being held. The Carlton Tow-
ers is owned by the Chinn
family.
Rosser Chinn, the head of
the family, is a former pres-
ident of the Jewish National
Fund of Britain and his son,
Trevor, is deputy chairman
of the Joint Israel Appeal.
The Portman Hotel is fre-
quented by El Al air crews
on their stopovers in London.

One El Al flight crew arrived
at the hotel last night only
30 minutes after the attack.
Police are considering a
possible link of that attack to
a similar assault five weeks
ago on the Churchill Hotel
which is also Jewish owned
and adjacent to the Portman.
Two Americans were hurt
in the earlier attack.
According to police, the
attackers pulled up in front
of the Portman in a red
Rover car, fired their ma-
chineguns and sped away.
The attack on the Carlton
Towers was almost identical
in method. The assailants
abandoned their car several
blocks from the hotel and
escaped on motorcycles, po-
lice said.
While sources here said
that the Irish Republican
Army could not be ruled out
completely for the attacks,
they pointed out that the IRA
specializes in bombs, not ma-
chineguns.
In Boston, officials are in-
vestigating the possibility
that a 22-year-old woman
who died there recently was
shot by two sniper terrorists
because of her father's posi-

ORT Embarks on Rethinking
Programs Due to October War

By NATHAN ZIPRINT
NEW YORK — As the
American ORT Federation
meets at its 1975 conference
a year after the Yom Kippur
War, it is obvious that a new
reality is emerging in the
land. Its long-range ramifi-
cations, however, are still
clouded for Israel and the
Jewish communities of the
world.
As for ORT, the effect of
the war was to bring on a
financial crisis of unprece-
dented magnitude as it pre-
pared to meet the new situ-
ation. In fact, as a conse-
quence of last year's finan-
cial dislocation, ORT was
forced to face what its lead-
ers called "a crisis unlike
any in its recent history."
Yet ORT was not deterred
by t h e seemingly insur-
mountable burden nor by the
immensity of the task ahead.
Even while its funds were
running low to meet the new
exigencies, its eyes were
focused on a more significant
objective — continued on-

going of its activities and
restructuring of priorities to
meet the new situation.
As• I sat down at my type-
writer, I examined ORT's
1974 Yearbook for factual
material and what emerged
was a truly remarkable ef-
fort, reflecting change and
growth in virtually all areas
of the organization's activi-
ties. Figures, it has been
said, often tend to obscure
as much as they illuminate.
The figures emerging from
ORT's Yearbook 1974, illum-
inate not only an effort and
a striving but a vision and
a dream that has endured
now close to 95 years.
What lingers on indelibly
is the image of an organiza-
tion that is dedicated to giv-
ing people the tools with
which to live in Israel and in
all the lands of Jewish
dwelling. No mitzva in the
Jewish spectrum compares
with that of training people
in the use of hands and
minds for livelihood.

Dear friend and supporter of HISTADRUT:

The ISRAEL HISTADRUT CAMPAIGN is in full swing throughout the
United States.

Today, little more than a year after the ordeal of the Yom Kippur War,
HISTADRUT finds itself placed at the center of a nation striving
eagerly for peace, yet required to remain vigilantly on guard for
any eventuality.

The scope of HISTADRUT'S responsibilities has

resources to absorbing

citizens in the up-

Already there are signs of a second generation "slum society" and
therefore, HISTADRUT is centering its full attention upon the un-
finished business of socially and economically uplifting these
deprived people.

The cost of HISTADRUT'S programs has escalated far beyond the
average level of worldwide inflation. Each new hospital and clinic,
part of HISTADRUT'S expanding nation-wide system of medical care,
each new vocational school or cultural center requires substantially
more funding than in the past.

With the same courage, strength and unbending faith, we must, as we
have in the past, share in the responsibility for these programs.
We must help to supply the needed funds.

Please accept my thanks for your generous support in this hour of
great need.

Sincerely,

Morris Lieberman
