sports, but because of politi-
cal pressures Israel has
been ousted and barred
from further sport competi-
tion on the Asian continent.
Israel, of course, plays
host every four years to the
Maccabia Games and the
International Hapoel
Games. The Maccabia
Games are often described
as the Jewish Olympics, and
bring Jewish athletes from
all over the world (35 coun-
tries) to sport competition in
the Holy Land. The next
Maccabia will take place in
1981. .
International
The
Hapoel Games also take
place every four years
(the year prior to the
Olympic Games) and
here there are no reli-
gioug restrictions so that
some of the top athletes in
the world take part.
These contests are open
to all.

Israel has participated
consistently in the Olympic
Games since 1952 when its
best individual perform-
ance was turned in by diver
Yoaf Ra'anan who took a
ninth in his speciality.
Since that time, larger and
smaller contingents have
appeared in every Olym-
piad including the 1972
Munich Games when 11 Is-
raeli -athletes were mur-
dered by terrorists. Israel
has not yet made a decision
on whether to boycott this
year's Moscow Olympics.
Non-competitive sports in
Israel have gained im-
mensely in popularity over
the years. Today hardly a

Written in Oil'

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — The
Jerusalem Post has de-
scribed the Council of
Europe's efforts to change
UN Security Council Reso-
lution 242, and their sup-
port for a Palestinian state,
as a "document written in
oil."
The Post said, ". . a
weak-kneed Europe that,
having been brought, kick-
ing and moaning, to the
point of lending, at best,
minimal support to the U.S.
on Iran and Afghanistan, is
now working overtime to
immolate Israel on the altar
of Islamic amity."

Maxwell House coffee
Is AfterTheater Enjoyment.

Having a good cup- of coffee after
theater is almost as much a part of
the entertainment as the perform-
ance itself. And MaxWell House
Coffee is always right on cue to help
get the good conversation going. A
lively discussion after is a big part of
the enjoyment. ,

Along with the fun of recalling a,
particular scene, a bit of action or
memorable line—goes the
flavor of Maxwell House'
Coffee— because
Maxwell House
never fails to
turn in a star

performance. For over fifty years, cof-
fee lovers have applauded its full-
pleasant aroma,--and its great tasting,
satisfying flavor. And, "May I have
another cup, please,' is one of the
most rewarding requests for an 'en-
core' any hostess can hear.

So, no matter what your preference—
Instant or ground—when you pour
Maxwell House: you pour enjoy-
ment. At its Nvarmest ...consis-
tently cup after_cup after cup.
