NEW YORK—The Israel
Philatelic Agency in Amer-
ica announces the release
of eight new stamps from
Israel in August.
This year's annual festi-
val stamps (for the Hebrew
year 5738) portrays mat-
riarchs of the Bible on four
new commemoratives: IL
0.70, 1.50, 2.00 and 3.00. Fea-
tured are Sarah,--mother-in-
law of Rebekah, who in
turn was the mother-in-law
of both Leah and her young-
er sister Rachel.
The birth of the Israel Po-
lice Force pre-dates the es-
tablishment of the state,
going back to the _bloody
riots that marked the clos-
ing period of the British
Mandate and the War of In-
dependence.
The
"Jewish
Police

Force" was created at the
instruction of David Ben-
Gurion on March 26, 1948.
The year 1951 saw the for-
mation of the "Frontier Po-
lice," which in turn came
to constitute the Border
'Guard established in 1953.
Following the increase in
terrorist activity after the
Yom Kippur War, the
"Civil Guard" was organiz-
ed in 1974 to protect inter-
nal security. These three
branches of law-enforce-
ment are recognized respec-
tively on three values of IL
1 each.

The first Jewish printing
press in the Holy Land was
set up 400 years ago in the
year 1577; a single new
issue (IL 4) remembers the
event on the occasion of the

fourth centenary of Hebrew
printing at Zefat.
contributed
Printing
much to the national reviv-
al of the Jewish people, and
the clandestine press
played a key role in the
struggle against the British
mandatory power. The
"boar Ivri" stamps were
printed in secret at a time
when it had not even been
decided on the name to be
given the embryo state.

Both the festival and
printing releases will be
printed by government
printers by photogravure.
The police issue is being
printed by E. Lewin-Ep-
stein, Ltd. by photolitho-
graphy. All are multi-
colored with 15 stamps and
five tabs to the sheet.

`At Random': Cerf's Reminiscences

Bennett Cerf was the mas-
ter raconteur. He not only
was the great storyteller:
he had a sense
of humor that
stood him in
good stead in
writing a num-
ber of books
in which he
skillfully col-
lected his fa-
Cerf
vorite anec-
dotes.

He reminisced and his
book "At Random". pub-
lished posthumously by the
Random House publishers
which he headed for a num-

ber of years as president.
contains his recollections.
The remarkable fact
about "At Random : Remi -
niscences of Bennett Cerf"
is that it is also a history.
the history of book pub-
lishing in theUnited States.

Here the reader will be in-
troduced to nearly all of the
publishing houses that have
functioned in this country.
Many have diappeared but
they had not vanished from
Cerf's memory.

Furthermore. "At Ran-
dom" also is like a cata-
logue of the best books pub-
lished in the U.S. He re-
called the best sellers. their

authors. their publishers. in
many instances relating epi-
sodes and anecdotes about
them.

Cerf valuably accumu-
lated and made ready for
publication the record of
writers. their hooks. their
publishers.
In addition. in this inter-
esting and extensively illus-
trated volume he recalled
many important occasions
when he appeared with no-
tables on the "What's My
Line" television program.
Such are the Bennet Cerf
reminiscences. and they
are well worth reading.

JNF Youth Camps to Teach Forestry, Zionism

NEW YORK—Thousands
of children spent part of
their summer vacation in
five youth camps sponsored
by the Jewish National
Fund and the Ministry of
Education in Israel's for-
ests.
The camps combine recre-
ation and afforestation
work in their curriculum.
Among other activities of-
fered are hiking, scouting,
field trips, lectures in Zion-
ist subjects and forestry
work comprising thinning
and pruning of trees and
aiding in the general land-
scape gardening of the for-
ests.
At .a camp located at the
Ofer Forest on Mount Car-
mel, 1,500 children from the
greater Haifa area partici-
pated, and at the Nes
Harim camp in the Jerusa-
lem hills near the Ameri-
can Bicentennial Park, a
total of 1,700 children vaca-
tioned.

At the camp at Zippori
near Nazareth, 800 children
attended. Among these
were youth groups from the
central region, Arab youths
from Galilee and a group of
Jewish children from Mod-

co. A camp located at Lavi
in Galilee has been desig-
nated for the training of
young counselors from vari-
ous Jewish religious organi-
zations and clubs.

One recent seven-day ses-

sion at the Nes Harim
camp was devoted to
delinquent children under
the guidance of the Youth
Rehabilitation Service of
the Ministry of Social Wel-
fare.
