Mau rice Bolle,

Resistance Leader

Maurice Bolle, a war resist-
ance figure, has died here at
age 85.
Soon after the outbreak of
World War II, Mr. Bolle or-
ganized escape routes to
Britain, Spain and Switzer-
land. In 1942, he became one
of the main leaders of the
defense committee of Jews.
He was rescued by U.S.
troops from Buchenwald
where he was sent by the
Nazis in 1943. -

NEW YORK — The many
honors and titles mentioned
in the obituary of .Prof.
Rene Cassin, who died in
Paris Feb. 20, neglected his
position as honorary presi-
dent of the Waldemar Mor-
decai Haffkine Interna-
tional Memorial Committee.
That group's organizer,
Edythe Lutzker, writes that
Prof. Cassin accepted the
post on condition that he
would not be overly bur-
dened. However, he played a
prominent role in the Sep-
tember, 1972 ceremony in
Paris' Institut Pasteur com-
memorating Haffkine's an-
ti-cholera vaccine that was
developed 80 years before.
Prof. Cassin made a ma-
jor speech to the interna-
tional assembly at the Insti-
tut in tribute to Haffkine
and hosted the reception
that evening at the Alliance
Israelite Universelle.

Ford Terms Sadat Break With Russia a 'Dividend'

President Ford said that a
"dividend" of "the trust that
Israel and the Arabs have in

decision of Egyptian Presi-

gate the Egyptian-Soviet,
friendship treaty and he
added the action would be

Israel Seeking
EEC Benefits

Israel is insisting that its
agreements with the Euro-
pean Common Market con-
tain provisions for financial
benefits , equal to any that
might be extended to other
Mediterranean nations con-
eluding pacts with the Euro-
pean Economic Community.
Israeli leaders are making
that clear to Francois-Za-
vier Ortoli, president of the -
EEC commission, who ar-
rived last Saturday for an
official visit.
Israel wants to benefit
from the financial assist-
- ance and credits extended
by the EEC to developing
countries. Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon told Ortoli that
if the Maghreb states —
Morocco-Algeria-Tunisia —
win a "financial protocol" as
part of their impending
agreement with the EEC,
Israel would insist on the
same treatment as only fair
and proper.
Israel concluded its agree-
Jnent with the Common
Market last July. Negotia-
tions between the EEC and
the Maghreb states are still
in progress.

Set Trade Talks

40-member delegation from
Mexico is expected here at
the end of the month for
talks on implementing var-
ious projects aimed at
strengthening economic and
commercial ties between
Mexico and Israel.
The projects were ini-
tiated during Foreign Minis-
ter Yigal Allon's recent visit
to Mexico. Allon will receive
the delegation which will
also meet with Minister of
Commerce and Industry
Haim Barley.

The group will be headed
by Mexican President Luis
Echeverria's adviser for
chemicals and agriculture
and will include the director
generals of Mexico's two

Rabin Leadership Scored

Ezer Weizman, former com-
mander of the Israel Air
Force, levelled a blistering
attack on the leadership of
Premier Yitzhak Rabin last
After announcing that he
would return to an active
role in Israeli politics,
Weizman, a member of the
Central Committee of
Herut, described Israel's
present leadership as "gray,
divided and uncharismatic."
He said that Rabin dissi-
pated the personal and pol-
itical credit he enjoyed
when he took office two
years ago.
His remarks were sharply
attacked by Zvi Reisman,
co-chairman of the British
Poale Zion who charged that
"such reckless statements
can only undermine the Is-
raeli position in the interna-
tional area and greatly
harm the Zionist struggle to
put across the Israeli case."

Weizman is currently on
a speaking tour as the
guest of the British Zionist
Federation. The Federa-
tion has not commented on
his statements but senior
Zionist officials who do not
share Weizman's views
have privately expressed

mander said that the weak-
ness of Israel's Labor Party

Herzog Displays
Touch of Irish


When thousands of Irish
emigrants and descendants
of Irish emigrants marched
up Fifth Avenue last week
in the annual St. Patrick's
Day parade, one of those
watching from the official
reviewing stand was an-
other emigrant from the
Emerald Isle, Chaim Her-
zog, Israel's Ambassador to
the United Nations.
Herzog was invited to at-
tend the parade by its or-
ganizers, apparently be-
cause he was born in
Dublin. His father, the late
Rabbi Isaac Herzog, was
Chief Rabbi of -Ireland be-
fore he became Chief Rabbi
of Israel.
Rabbi Herzog was an ar-
dent supporter of Irish inde-
pendence and a close friend
of the late Eamon de Valera,
long-time Irish Prime Min-
ister and later President.
