Proxmire Predicts Senate
Approval of Genocide Rule

Senate ratification of the
United Nations Genocide
Convention "looks better"
in the Congressional ses-
sion that began Monday
than at any time since
President Truman ap-
proved it 29 years ago, ac-
cording to Sen. William
Proxmire (D-Wis.), the Se-
nate's most determined ad-
vocate of the measure.
Shortly before the 96th
Congress held its first ses-
sion, Proxmire said that
chances for success are bet-
ter because of the atrocities
\ in Cambodia and Uganda
and the effect of the
NBC-TV series on the Nazi
Holocaust last spring which
he said had "a deep emo-
tional response all over the
Proxmire said he has
been talking to a number of
Senators since they began
arriving in Washington
Jan. 3 and he believes 50-60
of the 100 Senators favor
the convention. Two-thirds
of the Senate, or 67, are
needed to ratify an interna-
tional treaty.

The legislation will be
adopted by the Senate,
Proxmire said he be-
lieves, if former Califor-
nia Gov. Ronald Reagan,
who looms as the leading
potential Republican
nominee for President in
1980, is neutral, or
friendly to the conven-
tion. Conservative mem-
bers have historically felt
that the convention
would abridge the U.S.
Constitution and

Reagan's position may
pressure his Senate sup-
porters not to oppose it.
On every Senate business
day for the past 11 years,
Proxmire has urged the Se-
nate to pass the convention.
His speeches and state-
ments testify to the dogged-
ness with which he has
fought to have the U.S.
abide by the measure which
was adopted by the UN in
the wake of the Nazi at-
Every president, secre-
tary of state and attorney
general since 1949 has
backed the convention. The
American Bar Association,
which had been a persistent
opponent, finally approved
it in 1976, thus improving
the chances for passage. The
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, which has
voted out the measure for
Senate debate four times, is
expected to do so again in
the current session. Despite
these factors, Senate con-
servatives last session
blocked its passage by par-
liamentary maneuvers.

The First Lady of Israel


Golda our Golda, "Shain vee Gold."
A face that said so much
Across the screen I saw her there
She spoke so soft and so sincere
I drank in every word
I saw the anguish in her eyes
Her hands reached out to plead for life
to plead for peace
To plead for

She spoke so soft, so genteel
Right from her heart it came
I did not breathe, I did not move
Wrapped in her heavenly spell.

I looked into .her face so bright
I searched it thru and thru
I found just one pure love she had
For her land of Is-ra-el.

What did she say to wrack the world?
What were her words to hear?
"I only ask that you listen well
That Is-ra-el shall be free.

Our little band of people here
Have made a land of fear
Into a growing land of hope
With love and labor and with tears.

This hallowed land so drenched in blood
Our blood — so proud are we
That gave their lives without a thought
That Is-ra-el shall be free.

Forgotten were her earthly dues
This woman with great heart
Gave it all without restraint
To the land she loved, beyond all else
This land, her Is-ra-el.

She labored long, so many years
For all the world to know
That in her heart this land did dwell
This land of Is-ra-el.

And then the leader she became
Prime lady of the land.
A nation born again to dwell
In her land of love
This land her Is-ra-el.

It is still there it always will
Stand straight and strong and true
With inward pride of history
This land of Is-ra-el.

As time went by the land did grow
The deserts in full bloom
The land so barren now came forth
To show what could be done
By work and love and heart and hope
In this land of Is-ra-el.

A guiding hand held out by her
To show them a promised land.
Thrice invaders came to destroy
With gun and bomb and deadly strife
Thrice were they repulsed
By the defenders of this land
This land of Is-ra-el.

Nite and day she labored full
To give her land a helping hand
And then she gave much more than that
She gave her heart
She gave her soul
She gave her strength
She gave everything
Until there was no more to give.

Deep in our heart she'll always live
A warmth to give us hope
We are so strong, because of her
No more can I say, I know no words
That equal are
To Golda of is-•a-el
For all time, the first lady of our land.
