Dallas ADL Head
Hosts Rev. Smith
for Passover

DALLAS — The Rev.
Bailey Smith, the Baptist
leader who was quoted as
saying that God doesn't
hear the prayers of Jews,
will spend Passover in the
home of a Jewish family and
may travel to Israel with
the same family next year.
Rev. Smith's host will be
Mark Briskman, head of the
Dallas office of the Anti-
defamation League of Bnai
Brith. The invitation to
Smith was made at a meet-
ing last week at ADL na-

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
overland transport of goods
between Israel and Egypt,
hailed as a great step for-
ward in the process of nor-
malization of relations be-
tween the two countries, is
getting off to a very slow
start.
Under arrangements
completed recently, the
Neot Sinai transit point was
due to have started opera-
tion last week with goods
transshipped from Israeli to
Egyptian trucks in a back-
to-back operation at the
border crossing point.
While Israel was ready to
allow Egyptian trucks and
cars to circulate in Israel,
like vehicles from other
parts of the world shipped
here by sea or air ferries,
Egyptian law does not allow
for movement of non-
Egyptian vehicles inside
Egypt.
Two shipments from
Israel, paper and

Egypt last week, have

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The government intends to
freeze the price of many
products within the next
few months in a new effort
to combat inflation.
The price freeze — which
would return, through the
back door, government sub-
sidies for basic consumer
products — is one of the
main elements in the new
economic policy proposed by
Finance Minister Yigal
Hurwitz.
Hurwitz presented the
plan to the Cabinet last
week at a special economic
session but no decisions
were taken. Hurwitz has
also demanded a trimmed-
down budget for the next
fiscal year, but so far he has
failed to obtain his col-
leagues' approval. The issue

YIGAL HURWITZ

Store Removes Holiday Card

TORONTO (JTA) — A
Christmas card was re-
moved from the shelves of
the T. Eaton Co., Canada's
largest department store
chain, after a rabbi said it
depicted a "classic anti-
Semitic message."
The card, which pictured
a Hasidic Jew with a beard,
earlocks and a long nose,
dressed in a black suit,
reads: "We poor Jewish
people live in an economy
which is directly affected by
your Christmas sales. When
you Christians hold back
from lavish gift giving, we
suffer."
The card was removed
after Rabbi Jordan Pearlson
of Temple Sinai of Toronto
complained to Eatons that
the card was offensive.
Barbara Duckworth, a
spokesperson for Eatons,
said an assortment of
Christmas cards are pur-
chased in bulk and are
not always checked
thoroughly.
Liz Ryan, supervisor of
customer service for Recy-
cled Paper Products, Inc. of
Chicago, Ill., which man-

ufactured the card, said the
company has sad 375 dozen
throughout North America.
"We don't see it at all as
being anti-Semitic, not at
all," she said. "It was meant
to be humorous."

was referred to the Eco-
nomic Cabinet, composed of
a smaller number of minis-
ters.
In principle the Hur-
witz plan calls for a
package deal. In ex-
change for the price
freeze, the government
would ask the Histadrut
to waive the 21.6 percent
cost-of-living increment
planned for January.
But, anticipating Histad-
rut's refusal, the gov-
ernment is ready to an-
nounce the price freeze
program unilaterally.
Until now it has been
Hurwitz's declared policy
not to subsidize any prod-
ucts. If accepted, the new
plan would mean large scale .
subsidies for a- variety of
products, including
gasoline and food products.
In practice, Hurwitz ac-
cepted the line which was
advocated by Housing and
Absorption Minister David
Levy, who has insisted that
there was no choice but to
return to the policy of sub-
sidies.
Histadrut Secretary Gen-
eral Yeruham Meshel had a
similar reaction. He said
Histadrut always favored
subsidies for vital products
but rejected the proposal to
abolish the January C.O.L.
allowance.
