poor; when old, I became
rich; but in each condition I
found disappointment.

Oceanic Cruise to Bermuda and Nassau

It would appear that
cruises are fast becoming an
"in" vacation. Perhaps- it's
the easy pace of shipboard
life. Or not having to deal
with airport hassles. Per-
sonally, I find the service
one receives on board ship is
easily the best part.
This wonderful sense of
being pampered round-
the-clock was certainly evi-
dent during a recent
seven-day cruise on Home
Lines' S.S. Oceanic, which
sails from New York every
Saturday through Nov. 13.
The good life at sea, to
many, is synonymous with
the seemingly endless
procession of food you
encounter. Indeed, the idea
of dining four or more times
a day witothout consulting
your pocketbook is most ap-
pealing! For example,
passengers on the Oceanic
not only enjoy three bounti-
ful sit-down meals each day
but also "tide-you-over"
bouillon and sandwiches at
11 a.m. At four 'o'clock, it's
tea and pastries. Then
there's the Midnight Buffet,
a nourishment so necessary
that it actually begins a full

Since our time in Ber-

eight hours, we quickly re-

destination — Horseshoe

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
army has resolved an appa-
rent contradiction between
statements made by the
Prime Minister and the Is-
raeli Ambassador in
Washington concerning the
destruction of the most
modern T-72 Soviet-made
tanks operated by Syria.
Premier Menahem Begin
and other government lead-
ers have said that Israel de-
stroyed nine of the most
modern tanks produced by
the Soviet Union and now in
use by the Eastern Bloc.
Israeli. AmbassadoT to the
U.S. Moshe Arens said in
Washington that Israel has
none of the tanks in its pos-
session. The U.S. is vitally
interested in examining the
tanks or whatever ruins
remain, to probe their sec-
rets.

Brig. Gen. Meir Nitzan,
deputy chief of the Israel
Defense Force ordnance
division, was sharply
questioned by foreign
correspondents for over
an hour last Friday, as he
spoke to them at a display
of captured PLO equip-
ment at the Tel Aviv fair
grounds. He finally dis-
closed what happened in
the Bekaa Valley of
southern Lebanon dur-
ing a fight with Syrian
forces in the early days of
the war.

Nitzan said it was not a
head-on collision between
an Israeli and a Syrian tank
column, which would have
carried advancing Israel
armor over the battle area.
A column of Israeli-made
Merkava tanks was pro-
ceeding northwards when a

Syrian column approached
from the right flank. The Is-
raeli tanks opened fire at a ,
range of up to 3,000 meters
(two miles), apparently
using the new Hetz (Arrow)
Israeli-designed and pro-
duced anti--tank weapon
which has been proved to
have a devastating effect.
.
According to Nitzan, the
Syrian tanks "simply disin-
tegrated," apparently from 411.
exploding ammunition.

Most of the men of dig-
nity, who awe or bore their
more genial brethren, are
simply men who possess the
art of passing off their in-
sensibility for wisdom, their
dullness for depth, and of
concealing imbecility of in-
tellect under haughtiness of
manner.
