According to the na-
tion's leading theatrical
weekly, Variety, a
number of German film
companies are now turn-
ing to Israel to produce
their movies. They giye a
number of reasons, the
costs are less, some of the
pictures are Bible
oriented and the Israelis
are very encouraging.
After all, what has Hol-
lywood that Israel
hasn't? The climate and
terrain are similar and
Israel has additional ad-
vantages. It seems to be a
natural breeding ground
for good stories for films.
Think of the scores of
theatrical productions
which have been built
around the Bible stories.
But the current scene
seems equally produc-
tive. The recent incident
of the Israelis at Entebbe
has been- the subject of
two movies and now we
hear that Otto Preminger
is making a movie of
Moshe Dayan's life.
._ One of these days we ex-

erns. - Maybe they will be
called "Easterns," depict-
ing life of the early
"Halutzim." Their life was
very much like that of the
Americans who went to the
Dakotas and Wyoming in
the days of early America.
Also Israel has another
asset. Every Jew is an ac-
tor. On Passover, we play
the role of ancestors who
went out of Egypt. That is
why we eat the matzot
they ate on that occasion.
The haggada tells us that
we must think that not
our ancestors but ourse-
lves were emancipated.
On Su kkot, we act the role
of our ancestors again
and dwell in the booths
they dwelt in the wilder-
ness.
The Zionist story has
been connected with the
stage from thebeginning.
Theodor Herzl wrote two
plays about the Jewish
problem before founding
the Zionist movement.
The American Zionist
leader, Louis Lipsky,
started his career as a
drama critic for a New
York newspaper. The last
book he wrote shor0 be-
fore his death was about
the Yiddish stage, but he
knew the general Ameri-
can stage as well.
In the earlier period of
America, there was Mor-
decai Manuel N'oah, "the
first Zionist," as far as
America is concerned. He
was the man whO got
John Adams to endorse
Zionism.
.A little impatient to
wait for the fulfillment of
his dream of a restored
Zion, he established the
ill-starred "haven for

If people aren't happy with Glassman Olds,
they won't buy cars from Glassman Olds.
And pretty soon, there'd be no Glassman
Olds.
So, we try to treat our customers right.
Maybe not like the King of Persia, but with
the kind of service and attention we think
they deserve.
You see, we 'want your business at
Glassman Olds. Your continued business.
And we figure we wouldn't get it if we gave
you the business.

Jews" near Buffalo called
Ararat.
Americans, however,
knew him as one of the
most popular playwrights
of his day. One of his
plays, "She Would Be A
Sol-dier,"!. told, about a
young woman who, Cli="-----
guised as a man, fought in
the Revolutionary War.
In the later period —
around the Civil War time
— there was the poet ac-
tress, Adah Menken. Her
most sensational theatri-
cal performance waswhen
she rode on the stage, clad
in tights, lashed 'to the
back of a horse. The show
was sold out for weeks in
advance. Some objected
to the appearance in
tights.
Her deeper side was re-
flected in her poems,
which largely dealt with
the Jews. "Sleep Not, 0.
Israel," she cried, calling
for the Jew "to regain his
lost nationhood."
