As the baseball season ap-
proaches we look for hard-
hitters.
A literary walloper is Leo
Mindlin, who is the asso-
ciate editor of the Jewish
Floridian in Miami.
Mindlin enjoys being Jew-
ish and he revels in writing
about matters which en-
hance our faith.
But he despises the
shoddy and he strikes out
against those who hurt our
cause.
A recent target of his
was the American Friends
of the Hebrew University.
Now, Mindlin likes the
Hebrew University and he
supports its Friends.
But he didn't care for
their choice of a speaker at a
recent meeting: Saul Bel-
low.
Mindlin concedes that
Bellow is a good stylist, but
a Jewish Jew he is not. In-
deed, in his talk he made it
clear that he doesn't work at
his Jewishness, that he him-
self doesn't care for most
Jewish writers, and that he
is "more American than
Zionist."
Mindlin agrees with Bel-

NEW YORK — Sister
Miriam Thomas, active in
support of Israel and closer
Christian-Jewish relations
in Spring Valley, was hon-
ored by the local Jewish
community at a reception
sponsored by Israel Bonds.
Sister Miriam, 72-year-
old former administrator of
the Good, Samaritan Hospi-
tal in Suffern, N.Y., has
been an active supporter of
the Rockland County State
of Israel Bonds Committee
and has served in its board
of governors.
Sen. Henry M. Jackson of
Washington, who presented
the City of Peace Award to
Sister Miriam, noted that
he, a Presbyterian, was pay-
ing trubute to a Catholic
nun for her efforts in behalf
of Israel bacause all three
groups support the demo-
cratic principles embodied
in Israel.

low; the writer isn't much of
a Jew, even though many
Jews, including rabbis, have
heaped praise on Bellow,
calling his material Jewish.
Mindlin writes power-
fully. He called the Bellow
talk a "barrel of bull." He
castigates any Jewish or-
ganization which glorifies
an unworthy "name per-
son" in the hope of getting
a captive audience.
What did the best-selling
writer do for his patrons of
the American Friends of the
Hebrew University? He bel-
lowed.
Mindlin didn't mention
another bit of Bellowism
that bothers 'me: he's a
smutler.
