Tel Aviv U. Helps Train Top Brass

TEL AVIV — Because Is-
rael has grown quickly, and
talented manpower has
sky-rocketed to top busi-
ness, military, and civil pos-
itions without necessarily
acquiring the academic
qualifications specific to the
field or to the administra-
tive position, upper echelon
personnel need special
programs tailored to their
Where does the Israeli
military top brass, the top
business executive, or the
civil servant near the top of
the ladder turn for such es-

programs? Tel Aviv Uni-

academic programs de-
signed to suit the fast-paced
schedule of the upper eche-

In the program academi-
cally run and accredited by
Tel Aviv University at the
Israeli Army's National De-

fense College, military of-
ficers from the rank of col-

civil servants take a wide
range of subjects such a
Middle East studies, the
history of the Jewish people,
and business administra-
tion, to synthesize a well-
rounded scope of knowledge
important to high-level Is-
raeli decision-making. The
curriculum also includes
strategic and military
courses for top-level milit-
ary planning.

Police Probe Shooting of Accused Britain
Crackdown on
Nazi Official Living in New York Arab Gunmen

Police continued their in-
vestigation over the
weekend into the shooting
of Boleslays Maikovskis, a
73-year-old Latvian immig-
rant accused of having been
a police commandant in
Nazi-occupied Latvia who
rounded up Jews for execu-
tion at the Dwinsk ghetto in
1941 and 1942.
Maikovskis was shot Fri-
day at his home in Mineola,
L.I. by unidentified assail-
ants. He was questioned by
detectives at Nassau Hospi-
tal in Mineola where he is
recovering from a bullet
wound of the right knee. His
condition is described as st-
able. Officials of the Jewish
Defense League, whose
members have been picket-
ing Maikovskis' home, have
denied any connection with
the shooting, but lauded the

In deportation hear-
ings on Oct. 20, 1977, he
was accused of helping to
assemble 600 Jewish
children and march them
from the Dwinsk ghetto.
The children were never
seen again.
In two years of federal
hearings, the retired car-
penter invoked the Fifth
Amendment in refusing to
testify. Hh came to the U.S.
in 1951. Maikovskis' appeal
from an INS order that he
must testify will be heard
next month in the federal
Circuit Court of Appeals for
the second circuit. His de-

portation hearing has been
suspended pending the out-
come of that appeal.

Tscherim Soobzokov, a
former Nazi accused of col-

ing in the deaths of over
300,000 Jews during World
War II.
Soobzokov has been in
this country since 1955
and residing in Patter-
son. He is presently
under investigation by
the Immigration and
Naturalization Service
for lying on his applica-
tion to enter this country.
Meanwhile, Michael
proclaimed "fuehrer" of a
small extreme right-wing
German group called the
National Socialist Action
Front, has been arrested on
a warrant issued by the
Federal Supreme Court, on
suspicion of setting up a ter-
rorist organization. This
move comes only one week
after Kuehnen was released
from custody in Flensburg,
North Germany, where he
had been held following a
violent clash between police
and neo-Nazis.
In Amsterdam, among
the 350 Nazi war criminals
listed in the Dutch investi-
gation register as missing,
only some 10 to 20 are
Dutch nationals. The others
are Germans and Belgians,

Israeli Marine Biologists
Create Underwater Habitat


derwater habitat has gone
into operation off the coast
of Eilat, at the Hebrew Uni-
versity's Heinz Steinetz
Marine Biology Laboratory.
"Neritica," one of only
three habitats of its kind
operating in the world to-
day, was built at Gal-
Marine Ship Repairs of
Eilat by a German visiting
professor at the Hebrew
University, Dr. Hans Fricke
of the University of Munich,

and diving instructor Victor
It will be used by the Heb-
rew University as a work-

and laboratory 24 hours a
day, and serve Israeli scien-
tists as well as guest scien-
tists from abroad for re-
search. Dr. Fricke is now
using it for research on fish
Built of steel and
weighing 26 tons, includ-
ing ballast, Neritica is six
meters high, four square
meters in cross-section

and has 14 cubic meters
of living space. It is di-
vided into two parts: The
lower part is a wet space
which leads into the
upper part, a dry
laboratory which serves
as living space for two to
three divers and which
contains the control
equipment. Its four
closed circuit television
cameras can be moni-
tored either from
Neritica or from the
ground control unit.
Neritica is continuously
flushed with fresh air
supplied by a low pressure
compressor on the shore.
Humidity is kept as low as
possible, and various con-
systems ensure
maximum safety for the oc-
cupants. In case of
emergency Neritica can be
self-dependent for both air
supply and electricity for at
least 24 hours for two di-
vers. The whole habitat,
apart from-the primary bal-
last container, can be lifted

Jewish Theological Semi-

a new book, "The Ethical in

In his work, Dr. Green-

component of human life.
Commencing his
philosophical inquiry with a
study of moral and ethical
intention, Dr. Greenberg

is the ethics of secularism.
