Academic Chair at Hebrew University
Assured as Major Honor for Prof. Haber

Jail for Dutch
Anti-Semite

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
Henk Glimmerveen, former
chairman of the extreme
rightwing Nederlandse
Volksunie (NVU) party was
sentenced last Friday to
six-months' imprisonment
for writing and distributing
an anti-Semitic pamphlet.
The public prosecutor had
demanded a 10-month term.
Glimmerveen told the
court the prison sentence
would not silence him.

Prof. William Haber,
whose half-century of serv-
ices in the educational and
Jewish social services have
earned him a place of major
leadership in many quar
ters, will have his name
perpetuated with an aca-
demic chair at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem.
This assurance was given
Tuesday evening, at the
dinner honoring Dr. Haber,
by the toastmaster, Paul
Zuckerman.
Announcing a generous
sum raised on the occasion
of the current honor for Dr.
Haber, who was awarded
the S.Y. Agnon Gold Medal
at the local event by Hebrew
University Chancellor Av-
raham Harman, Zucker-
man said that sufficient
sums are expected to make
the Haber Academic Chair
a reality.

Hebrew U. Chancellor
Harman recalled that when
he was named president of
the Hebrew University,
upon his retirement from
Israel's ambassadorship to
the United States, he asked
Bill Haber to become a
member of the university's
board of governors.
He spoke glowingly about
the Haber devotion to the
many tasks in behalf of the

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
Amsterdam, capital of The
Netherlands and its second
largest city, will have its
third Jewish mayor in six
years.
He is Ed Van Thijn, 48,
who will succeed Willem
Polak when he retires next
month. The mayors of
Dutch cities are appointed
by the government.
Van Thijn was born in
Amsterdam. He became a
municipal councilor in 1962
and a member of Parlia-
ment in 1967. He was
elected chairman of the
Labor Party's Parliamen-
tary faction in 1981 and
served for seven months as
Minister of Interior.
Van Thijn freely ac-
knowledges his Jewish an-
cestry. But he is not associ-
ated with any Jewish organ-
ization and, in recent years,
has been a strong critic of
the Israeli government of
Premier Menahem Begin
which he considers reactio-
nary.

Dr. Haber responded in
his humorous fashion, with
Yiddish storytelling, an ac-
colade for his partner Fanny
in a 58-year-old marriage,
and a reaffirmation of faith
in and devotion to the He-
brew University and the
ORT movement.
The festive note was
struck at the start of Tues-
day's program by David
Holtzman who called for a
toast to Paul Zuckerman
who was celebrating his
71st birthday that night.
Participants in the pro-
gram included Cantor
Chaim Najman and Rabbi

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Seven thousand specially-
trained canvassers have
begun Israel's fourth census
of population and housing
by distributing detailed
questionnaires to Israel's
estimated 1,100,000 house-
holds.
Among the questions, on
the first census since 1972,
Israelis will have to reveal
what time they leave their
homes for work, how many
bathrooms are in their
homes and if they own a
color TV or electric dis-
hwasher.

Maxwell House® coffee
Is AfterTheater Enjoyment.

Having a good cup of coffee after
theater is almost as much "a part of
the entertainment as the perform-
ance itself. And Maxwell House®
Coffee is always right on cue to help
get the good conversation going. A
lively discussion after is a big part of
the enjoyment.

Along with the fun of recalling a
particular scene, a bit of action or
memorable line—goes the
flavor of Maxwell House®
Coffee because
Maxwell House®
never fails to
turn in a star

performance. For overfifty years, cof-
fee lovers have applauded its full-
pleasant aroma, and its great tasting,
satisfying flavor. And, "May I have
another cup, please:' is one of the
most rewarding requests for an 'en-
core' any hostess can hear.

So, no matter what your preference—
Instant or ground—when you pour
Maxwell House°, you pour enjoy-
- ment. At its warmest ...consis-
tently cup after cup after cup.
