cooperation, according to

cutor.
Kelner, sentenced to a
three-year term, is now in
the Manhattan Correc-
tional Center awaiting
transfer to a federal

his three-year term on
the federal weapons in-
dictment.
Federal Judge Lloyd

Got a cheese that isn't sharp?
Ja, ja, Jarlsberg?

Got a cheese that isn't dry?
Ja, ja, Jarlsberg.

Got a cheese that isn't runny?
Ja, ja, Jarlsberg.

Take home a chunk
to nosh on tonight.
You'll find it mild, mellow,
satisfying. Jarlsberg...
the cheese that's just right.

rlsberg is the cheese of Norway, and no other cheese has its deliciou-
taste. Mild but distinctive, the Jarlsberg flavor holds its own with other
foods without overwhelming them. So you can make omelets with
Jarlsberg, cheese sauces, rarebits, quiches, fondues. The Jarlsberg
ta'am makes a delicious difference. Or nosh Jarlsberg with fruit, on
toasted bagels, fresh challah. Be sure to get Jarlsberg today, in the
dairy case of your favorite market, cheese shop or appetizing store.
Tonight, enjoy.

habilitated.
Judge MacMahon rec-
ommended that Ehrlich
serve his indeterminate
sentence near his San
Francisco home and he
was released on bail with
orders to surrender to the
federal marshal in San
Francisco by Sunday.
Weingarten was or-
dered to surrender to the
U.S. Marshal in Manhattan
by Jan.' 19. The defense
asked for an extension so

that Weingarten would
have time to complete a
college examination and
Judge MacMahon agreed.
Rombom must surrender
here by Jan. 19.

Kadum Marks 1st Anniversary

KADUM (JTA) — The
Gush Emunim settle-
ment of Kadum marked
its first anniversary with
a celebration Saturday
night that lasted until the
next morning. Among the
thousands of persons who
came to this Samarian
settlement were Welfare
Minister Zevulun Ham-
mer, Chief Ashkenazi
Rabbi Shlomo Goren,
Likud leader Menachem
Begin, Ariel Sharon of
Shlomzion and other
members of the Knesset.
The settlers welcomed
the guests in the cold
clear December night
with songs, dances and
the lighting of a large
Hanuka menora: Goren
said the presence of
thousands at the celebra-
tion indicates that the
victory of the Hashmonai
has its spirit still alive in
the people that co-me to
settle in Israel and is im-
bued in the settlers of
Kadum. He 'criticized the
erosion in the belief that
the Jewish people have
the right to all of Eretz
Israel.
Hammer's presence at
the ceremony may have
widened the rift between
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
and the National Reli-
gious Party since the
government is on record
that the Kadum settlers
must withdraw from the
settlement which adjoins
an army base in Samaria.
The Kadum settlement
resulted as a compromise
between the government
and supporters of the
ultra-nationlist Gush
Emunim movement after
members of Gush Emunim
sought to start an illegal
settlement outside Nablus
last Hanuka. In June the
government offered the
Kadum settlers alterna-
tive sites but they refused
them.
Hammer said Saturday
night his presence was
legal since the govern-
ment had approved it
with the provision that it
not be a permanent set-
tlement. But on Friday,
Justice. Minister Haim
Zadok said Kadum cannot
receive any government
assistance for housing or
industry since the gov-
ernment has not ap-
proved Kadum as a set-
tlement.
But Gush Emunim has
been developing Kadum
as a permanent settle-
ment. The settlers dis-
played the products they
are manufacturing and
claimed that they were
selling them in the
United , States..,, ,Benni
