HOLLYWOOD — Pat
Boone, at the press recep-
tion preceding the Beverly
Hills Award dinner for
Ben-Gurion University of
the Negev, talked about his
deep attachment to the
state of Israel.
Pointing to the gold chain
around his neck with the
Star of David and the Chai,
he emphasized his kinship
to Judaism, the true found-
ation of his own religion.
When he wrote the
"Exodus" lyrics, "This Land
is Mine, God Gave This

Land to Me," he was uncon-
sciously repeating the sen-
timents of Menahem Begin,
words spoken by the Prime
Minister over and over
again while referring to an-
cient Samaria and Judea.
Boone confessed that,
when he wrote the song, he
had neither read the screen
play, seen the picture, nor
been to the Holy Land, but
was deeply inspired by Leon
Uris' book, "Exodux," and
by the melodic score by Er-
nest Gold. The composer, in
turn, said that the music to
this selection in the film (re-
leased before the lyrics were
written) represented the
theme of the heroic char-
acter of Ari (portrayed on
the screen by Paul New-
man).
Shirley Boone shares her
husband's love for Israel
and its people. They have
visited the country now a
number of times during the
past 20 years and con-
template taking a group of
Christians with them when
they go again this fall.

KENNY ROGERS, reci-
pient of the third annual
Ben-Gurion Lifetime
Achievement Award, be-
came interested in the
Ben-Gurion University
when, two years ago, he per-
formed at the first annual
event then honoring George
Burns. He since has been to
Israel and upon accepting
an ancient artifact from
former ambassador Yosef
Tekoah, chancellor of the
university, he expressed his
humble feelings that "in Is-
rael you surround yourself
with greatness."
He is deeply touched by
the awesome task of the Is-
raelis — to eliminate
hunger. Ben-Gurion him-
self, he said, was in the
forefront of the struggle
against world hunger and
the Negev and its univer-
sity are developing the sci-
entific and technical skill to
go ahead with the task, to
spearhead the development
'of the desert and making
fruitful the virgin territory.

GILBERT NIELSON, a
world reknowned Scan-
dinavian sculptor and sil-
versmith, was recently in-
troduced at a Beverly Hills
Exhibit.
Born in Copenhagen in
1915, he became the foun-
der of the Scandinavian re-
sistance movement against
the Nazis. Arrested and im-
prisoned by the Germans in
1943, he sculpted two spe-
cial monuments: one show-
ing Hitler hanging from the
gallows; the other a
tombstone for Hitler. He es-
caped from prison in 1944
after having spent eight
months in solitary confine-
ment.
Since the liberation,
Nielsen has developed a
casting technique which
allows him to transform
highly corrosive resistance
steel amuminum into a
dynamic art that emotes life
and sensuality. The royal
collection of Denmark con-
tains Nielsen's originals.
