THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

in lower case

By LARRY RUBIN

These dreams grow disturbing
I'm in a heathen house, see
Gods all over the place
And not one really fit to worship.
How does a good guest behave?
Once in a German cathedral
I genuflected
Just to see how a Jew would feel
Doing something worthy of the lightning
The guide didn't even notice
And god?
I can't read his mind
My dreams of deity are all in lower case
The graven images keep getting smaller
And more numerous
Lately they've begun to smile.

Poet Larry Rubin is asso-
- ciate professor of English at
Georgia Institute of
Technology in Atlanta,
from which he took a leave
of absence in 1966 to serve
as Fulbright Professor of
American Literature at the

University of Bergen in
Norway.

The poem "in lower case"
is from Dr. Rubin's second
book, "Lanced in Light,"
published by Harcourt,
Brace & World.

'My Song Will Still Gasp Out'

By DR. MARTIN ROBBINS

"Anatoly Shcharansky
was recently hospitalized
for two weeks (a rare con-
cession for prisoners) when

he fainted," according to a
Medical Mobilization for
Soviet Jewry update. The
desperate situations of all
prisoners of conscience is
echoed in this poem by Ada
Aharoni.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. —
The University of Florida
will dedicate its 55,000-
volume Isser and Rae Price
Library of Judaica March 8
in ceremonies honoring a
Jacksonville family who
gave the university
$400,000 to support and ex-
pand the collection.
Real estate developers
Jack and. Samuel Price gave
the endowment in honor of
their mother, Rae, and their
late father, Isser. Mr. and
Mrs. Price were instrumen-
tal in establishing the
Jacksonville Jewish Center
in the late 1920s.
In addition to being the
largest library of Judaica in
the Southeast, UF's collec-
tion is second in size only to
UCLA's among state-
supported institutions. The
collection enhances the
school's 7-year-old center
for Jewish studies.

By ADA AHARONI

With double edge razor
words
they may cut me,
with sneering upper lip
they may sift my blood
and trample creation

with double edge knife
they may desecrate
my shorn wings
and pour snow
stuff all over them —

Siberian
barbed-wire
cannot consume my lyre,
but merely ignite
louder freedom, louder cry

Heart Surgeon
Sees Progress

I

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Dr.
Christian Barnard, the
pioneer heart transplant
surgeon, said that he
"would not be surprised if
Israel is the country to
make a breakthrough in the
problem of immunology,
enabling the safer trans-
plantation of human organs
with lesser risk of rejec-
tion."
Barnard was in Israel
attending a South Africa-
Israel seminar on immunol-
ogy at the Weizmann Insti-
'te of Science in Rehovot.

Double Meaning

TEL AVIV (ZINS) —
Haaretz has editorialized
that Israel should not be
fooled by British Foreign
Secretary Lord Car-
rington's recent statement
that Britain would oppose
any European initiative in
the Middle East in the corn-
ing months. The newspaper
said Carrington meant that
Britain was opposed to any
initiative now, but not in
the future.

elease of Diary
Stirs Controversy

HOLLAND — A plan by
the government of Holland
to publish the unedited ver-
sion of Anne Frank's diary
has met opposition from
some Dutch lawmakers who
think it will be too painful to
read. The original diary,
published by Otto Frank,
Anne's father, shortly after
World War II, may have
excluded as much as 60
percent of the material
written by Miss Frank.
