Son of U.S. Olim
Freed in Saigon

Beyla and Gershon Feigon,
olim from the U.S., have
just learned that their son,
Larry, has been released
from imprisonment in Sai-
gon where he was arrested
when Communist forces
took over the South Viet-
namese capital early this
year. He is.expected to join
them and his sister, Zvia, in
Jerusalem shortly. •
The Feigons, who came
here from New York, re-
ceived word from the U.S.
Embassy in Bangkok, Thai-
land that their son was alive
and well despite his ordeal._
•But only after they spoke to
him• by telephone did his
father go to the Western
Wall to offer a prayer of
Larry Feigon, 33, was one
of 42 Americans who were
unable to escape from Sai-
gon when victorious Viet-
cong and North Vietnamese
forces entered that city.
The Communist authori-
ties accused him of work-
ing for the CIA, although
Feigon, an economist, in
sisted he was a teacher
working in Bangkok who
happened to be in Saigon
by chance when it fell.
The younger Feigon, who
worked for the Latin Ameri-
can department of the
Chase Manhattan Bank in
New York, came to Israel
shortly after the Six-Day
War where he worked as a
volunteer in a kibutz.

The Bible can never be un-
derstood, unless through
the medium of the language
in which it was •originally
written,-and the spirit by
which it was dictated. He-

in sense that no translation
can do it justice.

If you're not covered by an employer-sponsored
retirement plan, we've got one that could save
you a lot of money . . . and provide a tax shelter.

It's called an Individual Retirement
Account and it's -been made possible
under a new federal law that allows
wage and salary earners to set aside up
to $1,500 or 15% of your annual wages
(whichever is less) of tax-free income
each year for their retirement.
The beautiful thing about a Liberty
State Bank & Trust Individual Retire-
ment Account is that it lets you save
-tax-free income and also earn tax-free
interest on it. In fact, you don't pay any.
income tax at all until you retire and
begin to withdraw the savings, and by
then you'll probably be in a considera-
bly low& tax bracket.

Liberty State Bank & Trust has sev-
eral savings plans to assist you in build-
ing your Individual Retirement Account.
For example, you, could begin your IRA
by opening a Daily Interest Account for
as little as $25. Later, when you have
accumulated $1,000 or more, you could
transfer your funds to a long-term cer-
tificate account where you will earn
7 1/4% or 71/2% on your. savings.
To find out more about how you
can provide yourself a tax shelter and
build a substantial personal retirement
fund in the process, stop in at any. Lib-
erty State Bank & Trust Office. We'll be
happy to help put you on Easy Street.
