HAIFA — The public
likes a good love story, and
is always sympathetic to a
devoted couple who may be
separated by the force of cir-
cumstances. Hence there
was considerable sympathy
with Leah Leshem when
she appeared on television
not long ago and pleaded for
support in her efforts to
have her boy friend, Udi
Adiv, released from prison
for a short "vacation" so
they could be married.
Nothing was said about the
fact that his previous prison
marriage, in 1972, had

We children of the world
We have no choice
But to shout out in one great voice:
We are so small,'
Let us grow up healthy and tall.
We don't understand the purpose of war,
What is all the killing for?
With the coming of each new day,
We children want to play,
Buy knowledge in school,
Learn to go along and love,
Isn't this enough?
We shall knock on every door
And cry out:
We don't want war!!
We don't want war!!
Give us children a chance to grow up
