`Only the Tactics
Have Changed'

TEL AVIV (MO) — In
an interview in Yediot Ac-
hronot, the former head of
the Israeli secret service,
Prof. Yehoshafat Harkavy,
said that the Arab nations
still want to destory Israel
and have only changed tac-
tics.
Harkavy said Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat's
visit to Israel indicates that
the Arabs have now settled
for destroying Israel in slow
stages, rather than in one
massive stroke.

Federal Judge Lawrence Gubow Dies at 59,

Tuesday to attend funeral
services for U.S. District
Judge Lawrence Gubow,
who died Sunday after a
long illness. He was 59.

then-President Lyndon B.
Johnson. He was recom-
mended for nomination to
the federal bench in April
1967 by the late U.S. Sen.
Philip A. Hart along with
Damon J. Keith, who joined
Rabbi Irwin Groner in
eulogizing the judge. His
nomination was confirmed
by the Senate in September
1968.
Previously he had served
seven years as U.S attorney
for the eastern district of
Michigan, and before that
as commissioner of the

Securities Commission.
Cited for his fairness by
his peers, Judge Gubow
was the focus of a murder
plot by the Ku Klux Klan.
The judge had conducted
the trial of former Michi-

Christians Tell Sympathy
for Israel; PLO Role Blasted

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
delegation of evangelical
Christians and leading con-
servatives in the metropoli-
tan New York area issued
an "open letter" to Israeli
Premier Menahem Begin
expressing "deepest sym-
pathy" with the people of Is-
rael concerning the "un-
speakable atrocity" ()L ithe
terrorist massacre or 32
people on March 11 and cal-
ling for the New York office
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization to be closed
down.
The delegation rep-
resented a recently formed
group, the Ad Hoc Commit-
tee to Encourage Prime
Minister Begin and Israel,
headquartered in New
York.
In Washington, Sen.
Floyd K. Haskell (D-Colo.)
has told Congress and the
Palestinian people that the
goals of the PLO "are con-
temptible and compel even
the most impartial observer
to question the wisdom of
even considering the PLO
as a participant in the Mid-

die East negotiations."
He stated his views in
an "Open Letter to the
Palestinian People,"
which he entered into the
Congressional Record
following the "senseless
and savage slaughter of
innocent Israeli civi-
lians" March 11.
Haskell, who has de-
monstrated in the past that
he is not "insensitive to the
plight of Palestinian re-
fugees," said, "I see no con-
nection between the bar-
barism constantly commit-
ted by the PLO and the dis-
position of homeless Pales-
tinians scattered through-
out the Arab world." He said
the "immediate objective of
this latest atrocity" is to
"sabotage the prospects for
a negotiated settlement."

It was when he led a de-
monstration in support of-
Israel at the French Consu-

courage of a man who, while
displeasing the media, evi-
denced a determination to
be among the defenders of

This is what he always
was: a defender of the rights
of the oppressed. With such
memories he leaves his gen-
