Levi Is Attorney General

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
_Edward H. Levi, the son and
grandson of rabbis in Chicago,
was sworn in Friday as Attor-
ney General of the United
States, the first Jew ever chosen
to head the Department of Jus-
tice.
Levi, who resigned as presi-
dent of the University of Chi-
cago to accept President Ford's
nomination, took the oath of of-
fice with his left hand resting
on an Old Testament Bible held
by his wife. Supreme Court Jus-
tice Lewis Powell Jr. adminis-
tered the oath.
In the presence of an overflow

audience in the department's
great hall, Ford lauded Levi's
legal ability and integrity not-
ing that the Senate last week
had confirmed him swiftly by
voice vote without debate. No
dissent was raised against him
in the Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee either.
The new attorney general's
maternal grandfather was the
late Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch of
Chicago's Sinai Congregation
and nationally known as a
leader in the Reform Jewish
movement. His father was the
late Rabbi Gerson Levi of Tem-
ple Isaiah, Chicago.

uled to meet India in the
handball matches, but India
withdrew because of "tech-
nical" reasons."
India barred both Israel and
South Africa from the table
tennis championships, and po-
lice detained the non-white
South African delegation after
they tried to enter the tourna-
ment as spectators. Most of
that delegation is of Indian de-
scent.
The advisory council of the
International Table Tennis Fed-
eration did allow a Palestine
Liberation Organization team
to participate, but they were

told they must represent Pales-
tine (Gaza) and not the PLO.
Meanwhile, Bnai Brith ap-
pealed to the U.S. Table Ten-
nis Association to withdraw
from the international cham-
pionships.
Bnai Brith president David
M. Blumberg, in a letter to Jack
Carr, head of the U.S. associa-
tion, charged that India's action
was related to an Arab cam-
paign "to squeeze Israel out of
all forms of international
sports competition and to even-
tually strip this sovereign state
of her legitimacy in the family
of nations."

Israeli Army Deserter
Confesses Natanya Blast

A
TEL AVIV, (JTA)
19-year-old army deserter con-
fessed that he threw a hand
grenade into a Natanya discot-
heque Feb. 5 which killed five
people and wounded 21.
Ezra Avraham told a magis-
trate in Natanya that he had in-
tended to frighten the discot-
heque owner with whom he had
quarreled.
Avraham was one of five men
arrested by a special police unit
investigating the grenade at-
tack. The five allegedly stole the
grenades and other weapons
from an army supply depot.
Meanwhile, a fire that was
started by an explosionin a
clothing store Tuesday in Ash-
dod's shopping center destroyed
five stores. There were no cas-
ualties.
Police attributed the explo-
sion to either faulty electrical
wiring or to an underworld
"protection" gang. They dis-

-

counted a report from Beirut
by the Palestinian News
Agency WAFA that the blast
had been caused by terrorist

activity.

Another explosion Tuesday
in the northern town of El Ar-
ish killed' a six-year-old Arab
boy and injured three other
children. The cause of the ex-
plosion in an Arab house could
not be immediately determined.
In an unrelated development,
Israeli security sources dis-
closed that they have uncovered
-a terrorist network operating in
the Tulkarem region of the
West Bank, not far from Na-
tanya.

About 11 persons suspected
of membership in the terrorist
ring have been arrested in the
past few days. The gang is be-
lieved responsible for several
acts of sabotage in recent
months.

HAIFA — The Eugenio Men-
doza Prize of the International
Rural Housing Association has
been awarded this year to Prof.
Emmanual Yalan of the faculty
of agricultural engineering at
the Technion — Israel Institute
of Technology.
Prof. Yalan, a world re-
nowned architect, received the
prize for his influence on the
planning of rural settlements
throughout the world. He has
trained architects of many na-
tions and has published numer-
ous research works.
A member- of the Technion
faculty since 1935, Prof. Yalan
has contrubuted to the creation
of new kibutzim and moshavim
in Israel, and has served as an
adviser to the Venezuelan gov-
ernment on its program of rural
housing.

diously avoid the hard decisions
that must be made to solve the
difficult problems of life,
"which daily shatter the nerves
of every Syrian person; destroy
his productive potential, and
kindle the fire of scorn in his
heart."
Among other charges, the
journalist writes: "The high
cost of living spreads out of con-
trol. There is seemingly no an-
swer to the communications
mess. Urban conditions are
frightful. The shortage of food
becomes more acute; our medi-
cal students complain that they
have been alienated from a
scientific climate and are re-
garded by their medical col-
leagues abroad as no more than
first-air attendants."
The author paints a general
picture of demoralization.
"How then," she asks, "can one
prepare for the impending war
if it will be forced upon us?" in
light of all these circumstances.-
Western diplomats explain
that this public indictment
may, in fact, be only a camou-
flage since the authoritarian re-
gime in Syria would never per-
mit such an article to be pub-
lished.
