girl's teeth exactly.
It Pays to Be Fat—Meir
Hirsch, 63, of Bat Yam, was
accused of passing a forged
$100 bill. The shopkeeper
identified him only as "an
English-speaking tourist."
The judge took note of
Hirsch's unusually big be-
lly, and ruled that if the
shopkeeper had not remem-
bered that very prominent
feature, he had the wrong
Even-Handed Justice
— A commanding officer
caught one of his soldiers
smuggling a television set
from Lebanon into Israel.
To make an example of the
man's offense, the officer
poured gasoline over the
set, and in front of the whole
unit set it afire. A military
court investigated and
brought in two charges:
against the officer for de-
stroying a soldier's prop-
erty, and against the soldier
for smuggling.
All in the Line of Duty
— During a noisy demon-
stration organized by the
Histadrut against the gov-
ernment's economic policies
one of the demonstrators, a
government employee, was
injured and requested com-
pensation from the Na-
tional Labor Insurance for
injuries suffered in line of
employment. The court ap-
proved the claim.
Nothing Overlooked —
Victor Vanano, 21, of Petah
Tikva, pleaded guilty before
Judge Zvi Nadiv in Ashke-
lon court to escaping from
police custody. He was
found guilty of various
charges in connection with
car theft, and was also or-
dered to pay the police the
equvalent of about $10, cost
of the handcuffs he was
wearing when he escaped,
and which he did not return.
A Holy Urge — Ilan Av-
ichzer denied stealing 600
mezuzot in Bnai Brak, but
had difficulty explaining
what 40 mezuzot were doing
in his possession.
Proven Talents De-
stroyed — Solomon Abur-
mad, of Beersheva, sued the
chemical plant in which he
was employed on the
grounds that dangerous ex-
posure to chemicals had left
him sterile and impotent at
the age of 42. After pro-
longed hearings, an out-of-
court settlement was
reached for payment of a
lump sum. Aburmad has six
Justice Miscarried —
Aharon Algrabali, owner of
a fish restaurant in Bat
Yam, had for months been
bothered by waterfront
characters who ate in his
restaurant and refused to
pay. Summoning up cour-
age, he complained to the
police, and the offenders
were arrested. But sub-
jected to dire threats, Al-
grabali backed down in
court and withdrew his
complaint. The district at-
torney filed charges against
him for obstructing justice,
and he was sent to jail for
three months.
Offense Intended — A
24-year-old man turned

himself in at the Holon
police station, and charged
himself with intending to
rob a gasoline station. The
dumbfounded investigators
studied the law books but
found nothing they could
arrest him for.
Honor Among Thieves
— A young man arrested for
stealing from bathers' clo-
thing on the Carmel beach
indignantly denied the
charge. The theft had taken
place in a section of the
beach staked out by others,
he claimed. He limited his
operations to his own area
Bank's Premises Not a
Public Way — Eliezer
Hendless, client of the bank,
found a valuable item on the
floor of the safe deposit
chamber. No one claimed it,
and he therefore put in his
claim as the lawful "finder."
After a series of hearings all
the way up to the Supreme
Court, it was held that any-
thing found on the premises
of the bank becomes the
property of the bank if own-
ership cannot be estab-

$75,000 Award
to Canadian MD

Dr. Phil Gold, chief physi-
cian of the Montreal Gen-
eral Hospital, has been
awarded the Ernest Man-
ning Award for his dis-
covery of carcinoembryonic
antigen, a substance
secreted by certain cancer-
ous tumors.
The $75,000 award is the
first by the Clagary,
Alberta-based Manning
Gold's discovery, the re-
sult of many years of re-
search, lead to the possibil-
ity of detecting some types
of cancer up to three years
earlier than previously
possible. Gold, who is also
associate director of the
McGill Cancer Clinic and a
professor of medicine at
McGill University, was
selected for the award from
a list of 172 nominees across

According to the newspaper
Haaretz, Israel's Knesset is
undergoing fundamental
changes. Fewer of the old-
time Israeli pioneers are
still available to serve in the
Knesset and more Sephar-
dim are now serving as
The present Knesset, the
10th, has 27 Sephardi MKs
among its 120 members.
That is up from 22 in the
ninth Knesset and 17 in the
Surprisingly, the Labor
Alignment has more
Sephardi MKs — 13 — than
the Likud coalition, which
has nine. In the last elec-
tions, 70 percent of Israel's
Oriental Jews voted for
Likud, 20 percent for Labor
and 10 percent for the Tami
Party, which is Sephardi.


West Germany's
Bias Reported

KELN, West Germany
(ZINS) — According to a
new book by Prof. 'Alfons
Zilberman, 23 percent of the
West German population
openly expresses anti-
Semitism and 30 percent
more mask their deep feel-
ings of anti-Seratism.
The professor said only 20
percent of the Jews he con-
tacted in West Germany
would answer his question-
naire on anti-Semitism.
