Bellow Second in Nobel Vote

NEW YORK — Prize-
winning American novelist
Saul Bellow warmly ap-
plauded the announcement
that Italian poet Eugenio
Montale was chosen over
him to receive the 1975 No-
bel Prize for literature.
Bellow, vacationing in Is-
rael, said that "it is nice that
Montale won the Nobel
Prize. I'm not disappointed.
There's plenty of time to
win it yet."

The Nobel committee
was reported to be bitterly
split between the 79-year-
old Montale and the
60-year-old Bellow.

Montale is not well known
outside of Italy. He was
popular during the 1920s
and 30s. Montale stayed out
of politics throughout his
career, but was anti-Fascist
during the rise of Mussolini,
resigning his post as curator

Joint Council Helps Maalot, Arab Town

NEW YORK — An exper-
iment in peaceful coexist-
ence between the town of
Maalot, the scene of a mas-
sacre by Arab terrirists last
May, and the neighboring
Arab village of Tarshiha has
produced substantial bene-
fits, according to a study
sponsored by the Israel of-

fice of the American Jewish
Committee.
Maalot, with a population
of under 5,000, predomi-
nantly of Asian-African ori-
gin, and Tarshiha, with
more than 2,000, have had a
joint local council since
1963.

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Education Minister Aharon
Yadlin and the Hebrew
University are seeking to
raise money in Israel and
among philanthropists
abroad to purchase the rare
Sassoon collection of an-
cient Jewish manuscripts.
The price asked by the
owners, the son and daugh-
ter of the late David Sas-
soon, was more than the He-
brew University could
afford, according to the di-
rector of its library, Prof.
Reuven Yaron.
Other Israeli educational
institutions were similarly
unable to meet the price and
the collection is due to be
auctioned in Zurich, Switz-
erland next month unless a
buyer in Israel can be found.

The Hebrew University,
at the behest of Yadlin, an-
nounced that it was estab-
lishing special accounts in
six Israeli banks where
contributors could make
deposits toward the pur-
chase of the manu-
scripts.

The collection of some 38
items, includes the Chu-
mash Damask (the ancient
manuscript of the Penta-
teuch prepared by Damas-
cus) two books of the Mish-
na; and the manuscript of
the Mishna Torah-Yad of
Maimonides (Rambam).
Sassoon's heirs inherited
hundreds of documents
from their father and a
number have already been
sold as single items.

Speaker Yisrael Yeshay-
ahu and several Knesse-
ters of various parties met
with Rabbi Solomon Sas-
soon, formerly of Letch-
worth, England, now in
Jerusalem, owner of the
collection, in an effort to
persuade him not to sell it
abroad. Sources said later
that all concerned includ-
ing Sassoon, were anxious
that the collection not end
up in non-Israeli hands.

It was apparent, though,
that the effort to save the
collection had been mounted
ate — perhaps too late.

Prof. Leonard Fine, in an
essay entitled "Right in the
First Place" in the latest is-
sue of Moment Magazine,
the new periodical formed
by Dr. Fine and Elie Wiesel,
challenges indifference to
Israel's status and calls for
stronger arguments in de-
fense of Israel's moral
rights.
Indicating that while it is
important that the Holo-
caust and the U.S.'s stra-
tegic considerations remain
valid arguments, Dr. Fine
says they should remain
peripheral to Israel's
strongest argument: her
moral rights in the Middle
East.
Dr. Fine argues that the
most important Israeli loss
since 1967 has been the loss
of its claim to justice. He
says Arab propaganda and
poor efforts to combat it
have placed Israel's moral
stance in retreat.

A second article of im-
portance is Jules Harlow's
"Aleinu — Faith in Tran-
slation," which deals with
the translator's problems
in faithfully reproducing
the meanings of one lan-

NEW YORK — A volun-
teer force of more than 10,-
000 will take part in an
American and Canadian
cash drive for Israel Bonds
beginning Sunday.
The special campaign
during the months of No-
vember and December will
seek to raise more than
$100-million in cash Bond
receipts in order to relieve
Israel's critical financial
position and to help expand
industrial production to
avoid a sharp increase in un-
employment, said Sidney
Cooperman, Bonds cash
chairman.

With Southeby's of London
preparing the sale and the
catalogue already printed
and distributed, it would be
hard to recall the collection
from the market. Israeli
organizations, if they wish
to save it, will apparently
have to hid for it on the
floor.

WHO'S WHO
IN JEWISH HISTORY

Harlow reviews a number
of fascinating Yiddish and
Hebrew idioms, which can
easily lose their flavor in
translation. He discusses
the translator's problems,
and gives examples of how
experts can differ on trans-
lating the same Hebrew or
Yiddish phrase.
Other features in the
magazine include "Our Rus-
sian Allies", "The Mitzvah
Mobiles of Manhattan," a
New Year calendar, several
book reviews and other fea-
tures.
