Budget Problems
Hurting Israel's
Defense Industry

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Defense Ministry has in-
formed the Israel Manufac-
turers Association that it
will be forced to switch or-
ders for goods previously
made locally to foreign
suppliers, against payment
in dollars, owing to a shor-
tage of local currency be-
cause of defense budget
cuts.
A ministry decision to
order about $1 million
worth of a special barbed
wire needed for new airfield
construction in the Negev
from an American company
was canceled recently fol-
lowing the intervention of
Commerce and • Industry
Minister Gideon Patt.
If the order had been
placed abroad, some 400
workers at a factory in the
development town of Kiryat
Gat would'have been made
idle.

Who Will Say `Ah Main' For Me

By MAURICE CROLL, M.D.

I have no words of succor
Words I need so sorely now
Words that soothe, words that heal
. The shattered heart that beats
So hollow now — within me.

In one unguarded m ovment
Two of most beloved
My son-in-law — Bruno
And my only grandson — Danny
Snuffed out in one helpless moment
My heart still beats but
It cries out in anguish
The depth, I have never known before
It is ravaged, torn,
Ready to burst wide open
An unequal thrust of death.

.

From the great beauty of Venezia
Bruno, the father, proud, tall into the sky
A classic face, so quiet, so full of love
He spoke so softly in a gentle voice
This my gentle giant of a man
How proud was I to say of him
This is my son (actually my son-in-law).

Danny, my grandson, almost three
"Smendrick"
Devil boy who galloped into my heart
To capture it complete and yet
Share It
With his beauty sister, EliZ abetta.

He never learned to walk
He galloped wildly into life
He stirred the very walls, so immobile
In almost three short years
He crowed into his life span..

Oh that I had words — Nay — just one
To tell _of such, my mazik boy.
And as I write my heart cries out
Unrelenting, unknowing, bewildered
WHY?
More than life itself

I loved this boy
I loved Bruno too
And now I cry or I must die.
They are gone — ne'er again
Will I ever hear their voices.

When first he (Danny) sat "Erev Shabbos"
He listened to my prayers
"Yom Ha She, She"
And when I finished he nodded
His blond tossled head
And said (Si) he knew no English then.

I-have cried a thousand tears
Surely there can be no more
But, on the morrow — more do come
How can I face the days to come
Without that "Mazik" voice
1 Love So Dear

Now another sorrow has descended
My loving daughter — Linda — torn apart
I see her face — and I am numb
Oh that God would give me
One single word
To solve such grief
One single word — Just one.

At times my heart doth overflow
Then I can weep
My wife each day I know
Is a lesser woman in her strength
She does not weep —I see her ebbing
Deep within her grief
And I stand by and grieve again.

Oh Lord, how much can you ask
From my war torn heart
Is this my personal holocaust
And yet
A Miracle
By God's grace — Elizabetta is intact
And day by day I have taught her
On "Ereu Shabbos" to say "Ah Main" for me
God give me strength to endure that I may
Give some to my Linda.

ADDENDA

Yesterday I went with Linda to the graves
A journey into grief
We stopped for flowers for her loved ones
So tenderly she carried them
"Dad" this is where I will be
She pointed
Beside my husband and child
I saw the grief, deep within her eyes
I could not speak
I said a Yiskadal for Bruno
I said a Yiskadal for Danny
And then I walked away
I knew she wanted to be alone
With her two beloved.

Thru misty eyes I watched her
A lone lost bundle of grief
Weeping from out her heart
I heard some words she murmured
"My life is over"
She stood there so immobile, so alone
For ever so long'it seemed
Then she bent down
and ever go gently
Brushed off all the dust
Upon the grave sites
And I looked on and grieved again.

P.S. — Upon the grave site
of Danny I read July 12th
This is the day of my birth.
