HAMBURG (ZINS) —
The embassies and legations

In advertisements appear-

ing privileges: free transpor-
tation for the entire family
from Germany; exemption
from customs dury of all

and a large loan to finance

NEW YORK — Pianist
Arthur Rubinstein, during
his brief visit to Jerusalem
where he gave a concert on
the occasion of. the 27th an-
niversary celebrations of the
state of Israel, insisted on
being taken to his forest
. before leaving the country.

The Rubinstein Forest is
located near the Kennedy
Memorial and Peace Forest
just outside Jerusalem. In a
brief address, he expressed
his profound emption upon
seeing the trees, some of
which he and his wife had
planted with their own
hands five years earlier.

The Rubinstein Forest
now numbers many thou-
sands of trees planted by
the Jewish National Fund in'
tribute to the artist.

Balshone describes the
personality clash that led
to his parents divorce;_ the
death of his first-born son
through alleged medical
mismangement and his
wife's subsequent refusal
to acknowledge the birth
of a daughter.
The author also shares
his frustration at his aging
dad's determination to
continue to run the Jewish
bakery that had become
his whole life.

"He had a religious and
dedicated view of a baker.
`People,' he would repeat - to
the end of his days, 'people,
the Jewish people of Day-
ton, are entitled to have a
kosher piece of bread.' To
that end he dedicated his
life."
In all fairness, however,
"America the Beautiful" is
not a total disaster. The
hook, supplemented with
photographs of Balshone's
family, offers vivid descrip-
tions of the early 1900s.

1973 Beirut Raid
Led to Terrorists

JERUSALEM — An Is-
raeli commando raid in Ber-
iut, Lebanon in 1973 netted
more than just the assasina-
tion of three terrorist lead-
ers.
Israeli intelligence agents
have captured more than a
dozen terrorist agents since
that time, using lists of
names found during the
commando raid. They in-
clude Arabs living in Brit-
ain, France, Italy, Israel
and the occupied territories.
Among those detained
during visits to Israel was
Albib Alwan, a post-gradu-
ate student at the Univer-
sity of London. He was
given a four-year sentence
for spying, and implicated
and testified against an
Englishwoman who was his
El Fatah contact.
