Lebanon Calm, Destruction Intertwined

By HUGH ORGEL



DOHA (Beirut Suburbs),
(JTA) — A car trip from the
Israel border at Rosh
Hanikra to this luxury bed-
room suburb just south of
Beirut, on a beautiful hill-
top overlooking the interna-
tional airport, reveals a
patchwork, piecemeal sort
of war.
The road followed the
coast, at times almost on the
beach itself; at other places
on cliffsides high above the
blue Mediterranean. Some-
times for two or three
kilometers (a mile.or so) the
narrow two-lane roadway is
undamaged. Orange and
fruit groves are dusty in the

summer heat but un-
harmed. Farm buildings
and villages are whole, with
bright flowers or vines trail-
ing over them.
But then you come to a
stretch of road — a few
kilometers — pockmarked
by shell and bomb craters.
The buildings along the
roadside are heavily dam-
aged. Some look completely
destroyed.
Telephone and electric-
ity wires trail along the
ground. Pylons and
phone poles are shorn off
by shellfire or blast.
Damaged or burnt-out
cars litter the roadsides.
Some of the vehicles were
propelled by the blasts on

College Transcripts for Begin

Basic Alterations Included.

NEW YORK
Menahem Begin left the
United States this week
carrying a memento of his
college days in Poland.
The Israeli prime minis-
ter was given a copy of his
University of Warsaw tran-
scripts by Rabbi Alexander
M. Schindler during a meet-
ing with the Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations (UAHC) president
Saturday in New York.

Last year in Jerusalem,
Begin had asked Jerzy
Koberski, then Poland's
Minister of Religious Af-
fairs, for the transcript.
Koberski passed the docu-
ment to to Rabbi Philip Hiat
of the UAHC. Hiat gave the
transcripts to Schindler
who passed them on to Be-
gin.

If you wish it, it is no
myth.
