ing Co. acknowledged that
telephone response to its
"News Close-ups" program,
"Terror in the Promised
Land," aired in most of the
country Monday night, was
overwhelmingly negative.
But an ABC spokesperson
said that there was strong
evidence that the most of
the protests were part of an
organized campaign, prob-
ably encouraged by the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith which had
branded the broadcast a "to-
tally one sided pro-Arab
terrorist film."
Israeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin, scheduled
to appear on ABC-TV's "Is-
sues and Answers" program
on Sunday, told a reporter

Jews of Yemen," a photo-
graphic essay, is the first
special exhibit opening the
1978-79 season at the
Yeshiva University
The show, scheduled to
run through Jan. 1, includes
some 60 photographs docu-
menting the life of Yeme-
nite Jews, including those of
"Operation Magic Carpet,"
depicting the mass migra-
tion of 50,000 Yemenite
Jews from Yemen-Aden to
Israel which took place dur-
ing 1949-50.
The exhibition of photo-
graphs is being
supplemented by a colic c-
tion of objects from the
Yemenite culture, includ-
ing ceremonial objects,
manuscripts, textiles,
jewelry and artifacts.

A Litvak is so clever that
he repents before he sins.
