cow-se. An Israeli has devel-
oped an automobile that
runs by sun power.
It is not vet feasible com-
mercially, but who knows.
My good friend Philip Slo-
movitz, editor of the Detroit
Jewish News, recently pub-
lished a story of some Jew-
ish inventor who devised the
first automobile. He was not
interested in money matters
and didn't do anything about
it, but it was not too many
years later that others got
the idea and a great
industry grew up in Detroit
making the machines. Who
knows but that some day in
the not too distant future,
instead of the Ford and Cad-
illac, there will be the She-
mesh (sun) run by solar
energy.
The UN would no doubt
disapprove of an automobile
racing about on solar
energy. They would con-

demn it as "racist...
Our people first experi-
mented with sun power. It
was Joshua who made the
sun stand still. He was also
the Zionist who led the
Israelites to the Promised
Land. and the same forces
which censure the .Zionists
today challenged him. The
United Nations then adopted
a strong resolution con-
demning his Zionist
enterprise.
Yes. Joshua was the first.
It reminds me of a story.
When the peace treat
which ended the American
war for independence was
signed, the British and
American envoys .tranh
toasts. The British envoy
raised his glass: "To Eng-
land," he said, "whose sun
scatters benevolence
everywhere."

Original Golda Better Than Play

advance publicity and out-
of-own tryouts. "Golda," a
play by William Gibson and
directed by Arthur Penn.
starring Anne Bankcroft as
Golda Meir, opened Monday
at the Morosco Theater.
From the onset, it must be
stated that the original is
far more vital, powerful and
exuberant than its Broad-
way copy.

"ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FILMS OF THE YEAR

DO MING TO SEE IT!!!"

—REX REED, VOGUE

The basic problem of the
attempt to. dramatize Mrs.
Meir's life by the vehicle of
a stage surrogate becomes
stunningly evident on Miss
Bancroft's initial appear-
ance as Golda. She is a
physical and psychological
wisp. Mrs. Meir is a phys-
ical and psychological block
of granite. Sympathetic as
the viewer may be, there is
no intellectual and emo-
tional way to reconcile such
polar differences.
Moreover, Miss Bancroft-
as-Golda rarely projects the
power which Mrs. Meir
projected to the world, par-
ticularly as premier, in
scores of interviews, print
and TV media reports, par-
ticularly TV, and in com-
ments by seasoned observ-
ers of the wielders of power.
The other characters
apparently are sacrificed in
the script to keep the
spotlight on Golda. Her gen-
erals.are men of cardboard.
The ministers are largely
plastic figures.
Miss Bancroft is
intriguing to watch, she is
clearly someone represent-
ing a person of authority,
she projects a sense of his-
tory. Unfortunately, what
she does not project is the
extraordinary personality-
character of Golda Meir.
The play is subtitled "a par-
tial portrait." That's all it
is.

raised his glass. To Wash-
ington, the Joshua who

The • energy that we get
from food all comes origi-
nally from the sun. The
plants know how to use
solar power better than
man. Dr. Chaim Weizmann,
the Zionist leader, was
hopeful of getting oil from
plants. Scientists today are
working on the same idea.
One of the best things
about the sun is that the
Arabs don't own all of it.
