Sudanese President Jaa-

It was also reported
Wednesday that Egypt

The historic visit to Israel
was greeted with
enthusiasm in Western
Europe, and report-
ing in Eastern Europe. In
France, however, most
commentators expressed
dissappointment that Sadat
gave too much and Begin
too little.
It was also reported that
France blocked a U.S.
initiative in the European
Common Market that would
have endorsed the Sadat

reported that the French

will be located in the Ameri-

I Don't Want to Sell You A Car.
I Want to Help You Buy One.

You work hard for your money. So do I.

But I don't think that a low price alone is enough to get you to spend your
money at Jerry Glassman Olds, or any other car dealership.
I believe people want to buy their car from a dealership they can put their
trust in. A dealership, that'll work as hard for their money as they did. Making
sure things are right — before, during and after the sale.
When you visit Glassman Olds, well help you pick out a car that's right for
the kind of driving you do. Then we'll quote you a fair price. A price as low as
any in town. Maybe lower.
And, after the sale, you'll find our smiles are just as wide, our handshakes
just as friendly when you come in for a free warranty check.
That's the way I run things at Jerry Glassman Oldsmobile. Come in and see
for yourself.


When the Egyptians were
drowning in the Red Sea,
the angels in heaven began
to break forth in songs of
jubilation, but the Holy One,
blessed be He, silenced
them: "My creatures are
perishing -- and ye are
ready to sing! -
