The Gemstone of Spring

The Birthstone of March,
Aquamarine, a light blue to light
blue-green stone, derives its name
from the Latin word meaning sea-
water. The Aquamarine is a variety
of Beryl and belongs- to the same
family of gemstones as the green
emerald. It is found in widely dis-
persed areas of the world, such as
Madagascar, Brazil, Russia, North
Carolina and Main.

Aquamarine has long been consid-
ered a symbol of happiness and ,
everlasting youth. It was believed
to give courage to its wearer, to
cure laziness and to sharpen the
intellect. Aquamarine pendants,
rings and earrings are available for
your selection at Ohrenstein Jewel-
ers in Southfield. George Ohrens-
tein Jewelers, Ltd. is a member of

Lebanese, those both for
and against the govern-
ment — Lebanese, not
Palestinians — as I have
done here in Israel,
where I have learned the
opinions of both those for
and against the govern-
ment," Koch said.
He said that during his
visit to Nabatiya, Sidon and
Tyre this week he had heard
of the anti-Lebanese activi-
ties of the PLO. Mayors had
told him frankly the PLO
had run the country against
the will of the local
Lebanese. "I have always
supported a free and inde-
pendent Lebanon and have
spoken out as a Con-
gressman in recent years

against the murder of over
100,000 Lebanese by the
Palestinians," he said.
Koch said in the three
towns all had been united in
their demand that "every-
body get out of Lebanon —
the Syrians, the PLO and
the Israelis as well. And I
agree fully with that."
Koch said he would not
present a report to the
State Department on
what he had seen and
heard, unless asked to do
"But I shall certainly tell
anybody interested what I
saw — including the fact
that early reports of mas-
sive destruction in the
towns were completely in-
correct," he said.

Israeli Downplays Import •
of Soviet Missiles in Syria

cently appointed Israel Air
Force Commander Maj.
Gen. Amos Lapidot has
down-graded the military
importance of Soviet-made
SAM-5 missiles on Syrian

since taking over the com-
mand, in the current issue

siles were a Aactical prob-
lem" with which the Israel
Air Force could deal.
"There may be political
aspects — such as deeper
Soviet involvement in Syria
and the entire area, but that
is not within my province.
"They are older mis-
siles, developed some
time ago based on
technology which is not
too sophisticated," the
commander said.

over Israel proper, with the
"Green Line" of the 1967
borders, caused problems to
air force commanders and
increases the dangers of air
collisions or near accidents.
Earlier, U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz said
the deployment of Soviet
manned SAM-5 long-range
surface-to-air missiles in
Syria "is a sombering and
destabilizing" development
which demonstrates the
need for the withdrawal of
all foreign forces from

Confirming that the
Soviet-made missiles are
being manned by Soviet
personnel, Shultz told the
Senate Foreign Operations
Subcommittee that "there is
no indication that we see
that they aspire to train Sy-
rians to man these
He added that the U.S.
view of the deployment of
the missiles has been ex-
pressed to the Soviets.
The seriousness with
which the Reagan Ad-
ministration views the
placement of the SAM-5s
in Syria, which have .a
range of 180 miles and
places them within strik-
ing range of northern Is-
rael, was also underlined
by Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger who
said in a television inter-
view that "Syria has be-
come an outpost of the
Soviet empire."
Declaring that the
SAM-5s are "very effec- ,
tive," on NBC-TV "Today,"
Weinberger said, "Now
there are thousands of
Soviet advisers in Syria."
The SAM-5s now in Syria
mark the first time the
Soviets have deployed the
anti-aircraft batteries out-
side the USSR.
Weinberger noted that
the missiles are also within
striking range of U.S. air-
craft operating in the
Mediterranean, making the
missiles "much closer than
they should be . . . This
makes the Middle East
_situation more complex."

capable he kept his Cove-

Judaism, studying Talmud
and Kabala, espousing the
Yiddish theater, adopting
Zionism after a long and
frustrating struggle, draw-
ing closer to Buber's
Hasidism, and mastering
In other ways he resisted.
Unable to force himself to go
to synagogue on Yom Kip-
pur, he pre-empted God by
passing judgment on him-
self annually for this lapse.
He was never convinced
that the inward condition of
his life or the outward one of
the Jews would be im-
His stance became a
classic case of the
friction-producing an-
tagonism forced by the
demands of Covenant. In
a sense, God was the
enemy. One of Kafka's
entries reads "New at-
tack by G." In this entry
we find the confirmation
of Kafka's role in Cove-
nant, for his is an
engagement with God

maintained both on post-
ive and negative fronts.
However uncomfortable
we may be viewing Cove-
nant in an antagonistic con-
text, we can never ignore its
primacy in that frame of
reference in Kafka's life and
Work. Out of its specifically
Jewish tensions came many
oLKafka's greatest stories,
including "Metamor-
phosis," "The Trial," "The
Castle," "The Great Wall of
China," and the last one he
wrote, when he was nearly
dead from tuberculosis,
"Josephine the Singer, or
the Mouse-Folk."
