There is good news. We
have been informed that
Stuart Eisenstadt, one of
President Carter's chief ad-
visers, has a mezuza on the
front door of his house. We
hope Jimmy takes a look at
it before making any
further statements about
Israel. The mezuza origi-
nated in Israel.
Speaking about mezuzas
recalls an old Rothschild
story. Two Jews, Chayim
and Beryl, passed the beau-
tiful Rothschild mansion in
Paris. "Urn," said Chayim,
"it's a real palace and how
big!" "I wouldn't want to
have a house like that,"
commented Beryl. 'You're
crazy," said Chayim.
"What's bad about having a
beautiful home?" "Yes,"
said Beryl, "but where
would I get the money for
the mezuzas on all the
doors?'

At last, the secret of
Moshe Dayan's military
success has been revealed.
It is all in the way he lined
up his attacking forces. His
method was to put all the
doctors in the first line.
In the second line, he put
the scientists.
In the third line, all the
druggists.
Then he gives the com-
rnand, CHARGE! The doc-
tors, of course, know how to
do that.

Eddie Cantor some 30
years back told about the
doctors on the East Side.
Things were different then.
As the doctor passed the
tenement house, the parent
could call out, "My Joey has
the stomach ache." The doc-
tor would yell out: "Give
him some milk of magnesia
and throw down a dollar."

Catholics are saying
Mazel Tov to each other and
Jews wish them well on the
selection of the new Pope
John Paul.
The last Pope was not
entirely satisfactory as far
as Israel was concerned.
Golda Meir interviewed the
last Pope, some five years
ago. She was impressed at
first by his personal qual-
ities, his simplicity, his deep
set eyes, but after a few
moments her feelings be-
came a little different when
the Pope said to her, that he
was chagrined that a people
who have suffered so much
should show so little mercy
to the Arabs. \
She told the Pope of her
experience as a child wait-
ing for a scheduled mas-
sacre of Jews. She said
people who had counte-
nanced the Nazi doings
should be the last to lecture
others on mercy. Jews had
nothing to learn from others
about mercy.

The words of Mrs. Meir
seemed to sink in and the
Pope changed the sub-

Jews and Catholics are

6560 Orchard Lake Rd. Orchard Lake • 626 1587

The Catholics, while their
numbers are great, are a
minority in the Western
countries and have suffered
the fate of all minorities.
The Catholics met this prob-
lem by good political organ-
ization. They have been a
power in American politics
and Jews have often been an
added bulwark of strength
to them. When Al Smith ran
for President, for instance, s
many of the leaders of his
campaign were Jewish.

M CINERNEY'S FRESTAURANT

sor, Pope John, was sym-
pathetic to Israel — even
warmly so.
When Theodor Herzl
founded the Zionist move-
ment, he wished for the ap-
proval of the papacy but the
then Pope said he could not
approve of Jews, since they
had not accepted Chris-
tianity. Herzl in his diary
wrote that while he didn't
care for the Pope's views, he
liked the Pope's simple
mannerisms, his way of tak-
ing snuff, for instance. The
peasant in the POpe ap-
pealed to Herzl.
What will be the attitude
to Israel of the new Pope?
The new Pope will not have
an easy road. The Catholic
Church seemed to be an im-
pregnable institution that
stood immune to the
encroachments of moder-
nism. This is no longer true.
William F. Buckley, a
Catholic, writing of the new
Pope, points out that 40,000
priests have left their cho-
sen vocation and almost
half of the Catholics are no
longer regular attendants
at mass. Also, it cannot be
overlooked that at the very
door of the church, Rome,
Communism is making
great strides.

For Joy and Health

wide apart on many
things. The priest for in-
stance cannot marry, but
among religious, Jews, a
man who is not married
would not likely be ac-
cepted as a rabbi. Despite
the gulf in their •attitude
on this and other matters,
there has been something
of ‘a special relationship
between Catholics and
Jews by the fact that both
have suffered from prej-
udice.

Discord is like a leak in a
, cistern: drop by drop, the
water escapes.
