In a report bylined by
Gisela Weisz, dated In-
dianapolis, the National
Jewish Post and Opinion
discussed why Jews excell
intellectually. According to
Gisela Weisz:
The trials and tribula-
tions Jews underwent from
persecution and discrimina-
tion were adduced as rea-
sons why Jews excell intel-
lectually by two of the
best-known names in
American journalism.
Dr. Joyce Brothers and
Ann Landers were on a pro-
gram entitled, "Successful
Living Rally," and in an
interview voiced their views
about their Jewishness.
Neither, however, said
that her Jewishness had
anything to do with her
success, yet in answer to
a specific question, both
gave credit to the theory
of the survival of the fit-
test as having been a fac-
tor in the rise of Jewish
people to prominence.
"I think of myself as a
human being," said Miss
Landers. "I don't think that
my ethnic background has
had anything to do with
anything that has happened
to me except that it has
given me, as a human being,
a great deal of strength."
She then added, "My
5,000-year-old roots have
made me stronger. After all,
we are all made up of the
material that has been
given to us through the cen-
turies. So I believe that I
have been blessed because it
has given me a special
strength."
Yes she continued, "But I
don't feel that in my profes-
sional life this has made any
kind of difference."
When we asked Dr.
Brothers whether she
found her Jewishness a
boon or a hindrance to
her career, she replied:
"I did not find it more dif-
ficult to succeed in the sense
that I had a Jewish father
who instilled in me a desire
to succeed."
Asked about the prepon-
derance of Jewish intellec-
tuals, she responded:
"The people who survived
had to deal with all the

Israel Charges
Peace Process
Subversion'

UNITED NATIONS,
N.Y., (JTA) — Israel
charged at the Security
Council last week that a de-
bate on Palestinian rights is
taking place because the
enemies of peace in the
Middle East "attempt to
subvert the ongoing peace
process in the Middle East,
which has now entered its
second phase."
The Security Council was
called into session Friday to
discuss a report by the
Committee on the Exercise
of the Inalienable Rights of
the Palestinian People. The
committee is composed of 23
countries, 19 of which do not
have diplomatic relations
with Israel.

pressures over the years. A
selection of bright people
remained. If you were not
bright, you were killed in
the pogroms."
Ann Landers gave more
details:
"In many countries
Jews were not allowed to
own property. They were
not allowed to go to uni-
versities, so the challenge
was to educate yourself.
They always had a very
high regard for educa-
tion and because in the
role of commerce and fi-
nance many doors were
closed to them, they had
to work twice as hard to
open up those doors.
They always had to be —
maybe — better than
somebody else. I've al-
ways made a very strong
point of the fact that I am
Jewish.
"I think it is interesting
that approximately one-
third of the Nobel Prize
winners are Jewish and a
great majority of the
Pulitzer Prize winners are
Jewish. I think that that
makes a statement. I think

it means something. But I
myself have never felt any
anti-Semitism, although
some people have, I'm sure.
I have never felt discrimi-
nated against because I'm
Jewish, or because I'm a
woman, or because I'm any-
thing. I've always felt that I
have been very fortunate;
people were very good to
me."
