Zeitlin marks 50 Years With Dropsie University Faculty

PHILADELPHIA — A.
record of teaching contin-
uously 50 years — without
ever missing a single class in
all that time and in all kinds
of weather — will be
marked this month at The
Dropsie University here by
Dr. Solomon - Zeitlin, distin-
guished professor of post-
biblical literature and insti-
tutions.
A
world-renowned
scholar and the author of
many scholarly works that
have become best-sellers
with the public, Dr. Zeitlin
first came to Dropsie GO
years ago in 1915, upon his
graduation from the Ecole
Rabbinique in Paris.
It was in 1925 that he re-
turned to the post-graduate
institution and first joined
the faculty to teach the his-
tory of the Second Jewish
Commonwealth and Tal-
mud Babli — courses of
study which he still con-
ducts today.
During his tenure, Dr.
Zeitlin was for 30 years ed-
itor-in-chief of the
"Jewish Quarterly Re-

view," at publication of
Dropsie University, which
he guided editorially to
become the outstanding
scholarly magazine in the
world published in the
English language. He is
presently chairman of the
publication's editorial
board.
Dr. Zeitlin also is editor-
in-chief of the Jewish Apo-
cryphal Literature series, of
which seven volumes have
already been published by
Dropsie University. A pro-
lific writer with several
hundred books and articles
to his credit, all his writings
are now being published in a
new encyclopedic work by
Ktav Publishing House,
New York.
A fourth volinne is forth-
coming on his writings on
Jewish history, religion and
other related subjects which
have appeared in various
publications during the past
50 years, and his works are
expected to take two addi-
tional encyclopedic volumes
before completion.
Over the years, students

PhD degree from Dropsie
in 1917, and today is the in-
stitution's oldest living
alumnus. The university
bestowed upon him an
honorary degree of Doctor
of Laws in 1957, and in
1970 honored him again
with a Presidential Cita-
tion. Last year, he was
honored by his peers by
being inducted as a Fellow
in the Jewish Academy of
Arts and Sciences.
On his 80th birthday a
few years ago, he was hon-
ored by the academic world
with the publication of a
special volume, "Solomon
Zeitlin, Scholar Laureate,"
an annotated bibliography
of his most important
works. The book opens with
a foreword by the late Zal-
man Shazar, who was presi-
dent of Israel and Dr. Zei-
tlin's roommate in 1908
when they were students at
the. Baron David Gunzburg
Academy for Jewish and
Oriental Studies in St. Pe-
tersburg (Leningrad). They
remained life-long friends
since their youth.

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Mi-
chael Tzur, former manag-
ing director of the Israel
Corp. and former chairman
of the Zim Lines, Israel's
national shipping company,
was placed under arrest
here in connection with al-
leged violations of foreign
currency regulations, dis-
loyalty-and suspected fraud.
The 52-year-old business
executive and former civil
servant was informed that
he was under arrest after he
was summoned to police
headquarters for further
questioning in connection
with the allegations against
him.
The order to take Tzur
into custody was telephoned
from police headquarters in
Jerusalem where an investi-
gation of his activities is
also under way. According
to Israeli law, police may
detain a suspect for 48
hours after which he must
be remanded before a mag-
istrate.
Tzur was forced to re-
sign from the Israel Corp.
and the Zim Lines last
year after it was charged
that he had invested large
sums of money belonging
to those firms in enter-
prises headed by his friend
and business associate,
financier Tibor Rosen-
baum.
The temporary closure of
Rosenbaum's International
Credit Bank in Geneva and
the failure of alleged
"dummy" corporations he
set up in Vaduz, Lichten-
stein, an international tax
haven, sparked a financial

archeological collection by
Moshe Dayan will not be
subject to income tax.
