Hollywood's Pioneering Adolph Zukor is Remembered

By HERBERT LUFT

HOLLYWOOD (JTA) —
Adolph Zukor, who died in
his sleep at his Los Angeles
apartment June 9 at the age
of 103, was one of the last
surviving founders of the
Hollywood film industry
and one, who according to
his own promise, outlived all
of his enemies.
He was born in Ricse, a
village in Hungary, on Jan.
7, 1873 — a year when the
U.S. cavalry was still fight-
ing Indians on the Western
plains, a subject that was to
be grist for many hundreds
of Hollywood movies. He
came to New York in 1889
with $40 in his pocket and
•worked his way up the lad-
der from a sweeper for a
York furrier to a re-
..._icted member of the film
trade.
Together with Marcus
Loew, he opened the first
Penny Arcade -in 1903. Later
he switched from moving

picture machines to the
nickelodeon showing two-
reelers in converted stores
with the image projected
onto the screen.
During a meeting in
1967, Zukor told me about
his first successful venture
in 1912 when he brought
the full-length Sarah
Bernhardt feature,
"Queen Elizabeth," over
from France. He recalled
that the customers waited
in line to see the "God-
like" Bernhardt on stage.
Hardly anyone at that
time could imagine that a
talent of such magnitude
could be transported
across the ocean in a tin
can.
with
association
In
Charles Frohman, Zukor
formed the Famous Players
Film Ltd., its name taken
from the .slogan, "Famous
Players in Famous Plays."

of Zenda" with James K.

Israel's Defense Budget Cut

JERUSALEM (JTA)
After nearly two weeks of

Cabinet voted Sunday to cut

500 million ($63 million).
The amount is less than the

IL 750 million urged by the
Treasury but more than was
wanted by Defense Minister
Shimon Peres who had
argued that the defense es-
tablishment could not af-
ford to make any cuts with-
out impairing its
capabilities.
Finance Minister Ye-
hoshua Rabinowitz has been
urging all ministries to re-
duce their budgets voluntar-
ily to absorb inflationary
price rises. According to
Rabinowitz, the inflation
rate is running at 31 percent
instead of the 25 percent an-
ticipated _when the budget
was drafted.
Peres fought_ the cut,
claiming Israel's main prob-
lem is defense and not the
economy. While dedicating
a rehabilitation center Sun-
day, he said the only part of
the defense budget that
would not be cut is the more
than $100 million to be
spent for the rehabilitation
of soldiers.
A proposed Viilue Added
Tax (VAT) expected to be
approved and in affect by
July 1 will cause an Arab
general strike on the West
Bank and in East Jerusa-
lem according to Arab
merchants. But Rabinow-
itz said he does not believe
the tax can be instituted
until October.
The VAT would tax every
stage of production and
raise prices by an estimated
five percent.
On the positive side, Rabi-
nowitz reported that Israel's
trade deficit was $250 mil-
lion less in 1976 than in the
first quarter of 1975. How-
ever, the Israel price index
rose 2.1 percent last month,
bringing the cost of living
rise for the year to 14.2 per-
cent.
The Israeli Treasury is
also _launching a campaign
to abolish "summer hours"
whereby some civil servants
work seven-hours instead of
eight hours in the summer.
At the same time, Premier
Yitzhak Rabin delivered a
stinging attack on civil serv-
ants, and especially teach-
ers, for "not pulling their
weight."

Hackett, "The Count of
Monte Cristo," with James
O'Neill and features with
Minnie Maddern Fiske,
Mary Pickford and Ethel
Barrymore followed.
A lunch at Delmonico's in
New York with Jesse L.
Lasky inspired the merger
of Famous Players-Lasky
Corp. in 1916. This was the
forerunner of the Para-
mount empire.
In 1917, Famous-Lasky
absorbed Paramount and
Zukor became president. He

was at the helm of the firm
until 1935 at which time he
assumed the chairmanship
of the company. He re-
mained with Pa-ramount

until his death.
