Austria to Recognize PLO?

VIENNA (JTA) — The
Austrian government began
negotiations with the PLO
on possibilities of opening a
PLO office in Vienna.
Austrian Foreign Minis-
ter Erich Bielka-Karltreu
said "Such a step would not
mean that the Austrian gov-
ernment recognized the
PLO diplomatically."
"The PLO can no longer
be ignored in international
politics," he said. It is the
only Palestinian organiza-
tion with which talks can
be held on the Middle East

Rabbi Defines
Moment of Death

NEW YORK — Rabbi
Seymour Siegel, professor
of theology at the Jewish
Theological Seminary, said
that in his opinion the suffi-
cient definition of the mo-
ment of death is brain death
together with an end to
spontaneous functioning of
the heart and lungs.
Rabbi Siegel, chairman of
the Committee on Jewish
Law and Standards of the
Rabbinical Assembly, told a
seminary forum on "De-
fining Death" that once
death had occurred in those
terms, there were "valid
grounds" for withdrawal of
mechanical systems that
prevent death from coming
naturally.

Melting Pot

A democratic nation
means a symphonic nation,
a nation of many voices and
many themes, each keeping
individuality and freedom,
and yet all harmonized to-
gether.
