JDL, Pro-Palestinian Groups May Clash on Redgrave Issue

different kind of excitement
may be injected into the
Oscar ceremonies in Los
Angeles next Monday if the
Jewish Defense League and
pro-Palestinian groups
have their way. •
The JDL has announced
that it will stage a demonst-
ration at the internation-
ally televised motion pic-
ture Academy Awards
ceremony to protest the
nomination of British ac-
tress Vanessa Redgrave for
an Oscar as best supporting
actress in "Julia." At the
same time, Arabs and pro-
Palestinian sympathizers
announced plans to stage a
counter - demonstration
against the JDL.
Anger against Ms. Red-
grave has been expressed by
the JDL and other Jewish
groups for having made a
documentary film, "The
Palestinians," which pre-
sents what some have
termed a one-sided pro-
Palestinian anti-Israeli -
view. Protests against the
film have been mounted in
cities where it has been
shown in this country and
some have called for a
boycott against that film
and any film in which the
actress appears.
At the same time, many
in the film industry and
outside, Jews as well as
non-Jews, have voiced
opposition to these de-
monstrations and calls
for boycott. Among the
reasons for opposing,
these actions, and speci-
fically the one planned

If you're losing interest in
interest rate claims, try 7.75%.

We think a lot of people have been confused for a
long time about savings interest rates. Lately, we think
they've become more confused by the numerous
attempts to "straighten out the confusion."
So here is a simple fact: we pay 7.75% annual
interest, guaranteed for the full term, on a six-year
certificate savings account; no place pays a higher rate,
and many places (possibly including the one where
you're saving) are not allowed to pay as much.
To earn this high interest—which is an effective
annual rate of 7.98%—just deposit $1,000 or more and
leave it in the account for the full six years.
Obviously, it's not the account to have if you're
saving up for this summer's vacation.or September
college tuition. But it just might be the account to have for your
dream vacation, or for college tuition for a child who's now
twelve, or even as a supplement to your retirement fund.
