Canadian Poet Has New Volume

Larry Geller is a Cana-
dian poet of distinction. A
native of Winnipeg who had
made his mark as a news-
paper columnist, having
authored the column "Word
Origins" in the Winnipeg
Free Press, he draws upon
the rich polyglot of his na-
tive city. He especially
glories in his Jewish
legacies.
He has mastered five lan-
guages in addition to
English. He presently
teaches in Mayo, Yukon,
where he makes his home
with his wife and two chil-
dren.
His poems are his
memories — of the
synagogue in his native

city, the Hebrew school
where he learned Yiddish
and Hebrew.
His latest book of
poems is entitled
"Apples, Walnuts and
Wine" and was published
by Queenstone House in
Winnipeg. Here is how he
has drawn upon tradition
for the title of his book,
described in the
foreword:
"Apples, walnuts and
wine are the principal in-
gredients of haroset, a
reddish-brown savory dip
served at the Passover meal
— the Seder. Haroset is not
a delicacy but a visible
memento to Jews of the

Court of Florida to reverse a
first-degree-murder convic-
tion — which carries an
automatic death penalty —
on grounds that the jury
was chosen on Yom Kippur,
the Jewish Day of Atone-
ment.
In rejecting a defense mo-
tion to postpone the jury
selection because of the
Jewish holiday, the court
deprived the defendant of
his constitutional right to a
jury selected from a fair
cross-section of the commu-
nity, the Congress argued in
a friend-of-the-court brief in
the case of Florida vs. Paul
William Scott.
An estimated nine per-
cent of the population of
Palm Beach County, where
Scott was tried, is Jewish.
Scott, 24, is not Jewish.
"The selection of
Scott's jury on Yom Kip-
pur, a day when Jews ob-
serving the commands of
their religion would not
have appeared for jury
service, violated Scott's
constitutional rights,"
the brief said.
The AJCongress brief
cited a 1979 Supreme Court
decision, in Duren vs. Mis-
souri, holding that the re-
quirement of a fair cross-
section jury was ignored if
(1) the group alleged to be
excluded was a "distinctive"
group in the community; (2)
if the representation of this
group in venires from which
juries were selected was not
fair and reasonable in rela-
tion to the number of such
persons in the community;
and (3) if this underrepre-
sentation was due to sys-
tematic exclusion of the
group in the jury selection
process.
On each of these grounds,
the lower court's refusal to
postpone the jury selection
violated the defendant's,
rights, the Congress said in
its brief.

Electronics Firm
Locates in Israel

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
The AVX Corp., one of the
world's leading manufac-
turers of electronic compo-
nents, will -establish an Is-
rael subsidiary, according
to Commerce and Tourism
Minister Gideon Patt.

"The past is not merely a,
collection of fading snap-
shots cluttering an idle
mind. It is spells and
dreams haunting certain
streets, old houses and
snow-stained buildings.
Every event is chained to a
place.
"These are the places of
my youth."
Geller's poems are
long, yet this portion
from the 12-page
"Libavicher Synagogue"
merits reference:

they made to build the
treasure-cities for the
Pharaoh, who had enslaved
them. Haroset is to remind
us of those cities of exile.
"In these mementos, I am
much like the old man who,
in a rare moment of confi-
dence, extracts from his
wallet some ancient creased
photographs. He shows
them one by one, handing
each with reverence, and
his bright eyes exclaim:
`See, this is She who I have
loved!'

,

I eye the urchins laughing at me,
Because I too am five,
But clean and in the captivity
Of the Czarist Officer I call "Zaideh."
He is leading me to a wondrous place.
When I am old and far away,
When my head will bend
Toward the clean loam of Galilee,
Perverse and proud will yet my rebel eye,
Conjure up the vision of the little shul,
The little brick Synagogue
The local business office
Of God.
