the Jewish National Fund in
memory of Dr. Walter C.
Lowdermilk, a soil conser-
vationist who helped Israel.

arned the title, "the father
:if Israel's water plan,"

since been named for him.

Meanwhile, the San Fran-
cisco Jewish Bulletin re-

ported that announcement
of the group's dedication of
the Lowdermilk Forest in
Israel has sparked a stream
of reminiscences from per-
sons around the country
who worked with and knew
Dr. Lowdermilk.
According to the newspa-
per, Alexander and Ruth
Brede of Walled Lake,
Mich., wrote "It may inter-
est you to know that we
were with the Lowdermilks
at the University of Nank-
ing, China, from 1922 to
1927, when we had to get
out immediately after the
unfortunate March 1927 af-
fair and we came back to
America on the same boat





'Me best thing the wildesde .

Dr. Esther Perry of
Berkeley, Calif., remem-
bered that "When Walter
Clay Lowdermilk came back
to America from China in
•1927 he enrolled in graduate
work in soil studies of the
University of California at
Berkeley and took the soil
physics laboratory course
which I taught."

The Chief Rabbinate
Council excommunicated
Lorincz at a session held
under Rabbi Goren's
chairmanship but boycot-
ted — as usual — by its
co-chairman, Sephardic
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef
whose perpetual quarrels
with Rabbi Goren make
the news frequently.

Meanwhile, Hatzofe and
Hamodia, respectively,
praised and condemned the
excommunication. The
Aguda newspaper claimed.
that even NRP circles found
Rabbi Goren a liability and
published rumors that he
was about to resign.

Excommunication of Israeli
Spurs Orthodox Rivalries

Israelis suffering through
political tension and eco-
nomic woes received much
needed comic relief when
the ancient edict of excom-
munication was invoked by
the Chief Rabbinate Council
against Aguda bloc MK
Shlomo Lorincz for likening
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren to President
Idi Amin of Uganda in the
course of a Knesset debate.
The excommunication ed-
ict and the war of the print-
ing presses it precipitated
between the newspapers of
the rival Orthodox factions
— the National Religious
Party's Hatzofe and the
Aguda's Hamodia —
brought smiles and laughter
to the populace.
The excommunication of
Lorincz was described by
Maariv as a "comical anach-
ronism." The Jerusalem
Post headlined the story
with photographs of Rabbi
Goren and Amin.
