BEVERLY PAPAI --
The trio is so well de-
voted to-its work that it has
an acquaintance with the
clients of the Oakland Coun-
ty Subregional Library for
the Blind and Physically
Handicapped which they
are staffing.
Federally programmed,
the Library of Congress
services for the visually
handicapped makes avail-
able thousands of books of
every conceivable subject:
science, fiction, literary
essays, history, children's
stories.
Of interest to this commu-
nity is the recording, for
cassette tapes, of Prof. Da-
vid Lewis' "The Public Im-

age of Henry Ford," which
has just been issued in a
second edition by Wayne
State University Press.
The reading of this vol-
ume in more than 20 tapes,
for cassettes, was by Rich-
ard Vogt. The readings are
done by volunteers who are
selected among those tested
best to be able to transmit
the texts articulately.
An unusual first for any
of these readings was the in-
troduction to the Ford biog-
raphy by the author himself
who explained the Ford
role and expressed thanks
to one Mr. and Mrs. Philip
Slomovitz "for services to
the community and to the
blind."
Among the blessings for
the handicapped is the avail-
ability of volumes like
"Harry Truman and the
Crisis Presidency" by Bert
Cochran.
Throwing light on the con-
flict between Truman and
the State Department and
the recognition of Israel by
the U.S., this volume is
among the blessings for the
visually handicapped be-
cause important works are
made available for them as
Talking Books.
A "Cassette Books" cata-
logue lists the hundreds of
available tales in more than
,100 pages of texts, in-
dicating the scores of cate-
gories covered in providing
aid for the handicapped.
Even more extensive are
the recordings, and the help
given by the Library of Con-
gress in the federally-aided
program through the Oak-
land County Subregional Li-
brary for the Blind and
Physically Handicapped in-
clude a vastly increased
number of topics covered in
the professionally planned
programs under the guid-
ance of skilled librarians.
Among the many hun-
dreds of titles taped by qual-
ified readers for the blind
are titles of general inter-
est, many Jewish authors in-
cluded among them. Here

Envoy Statements
on Domestic Issues
Banned by Dayan

JERUSALEM (JTA)—
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan has forbidden Israeli
diplomats abroad to discuss
or answer any questions
about domestic or political
matters inside Israel.
The matter came up in

Sharir of Likud asked about
a Guardian report saying
Avraham Kidron, Israel's
Ambassador in London, pre-
dicted a short life for the
Begin government.
Dayan said he sent a let-
ter of reprimand to Kidron
advising him that it was not
his place to discuss domes-
tic developments in Israel
and that in so doing he had
exceeded his authority.
