Seiko's fine-line look
in continuous performance.

The lines are so elegant Seiko repeats them in the
dials for an on-going look of beautiful bracelets that
tell time, slim and glowing in gold-tone or silver-
and-gold-tone. A very coveted, very current look,
definitely to be continued into the classic category.

he sees they'll pass overwhelm-
ingly and because he has to as a
senator from such a heavily
Jewish state as Illinois.
Percy, however, points to those
and similar votes to refute "my
political opponents who have
tried to paint me as a person un-
sympathetic to Israel. It isn't true.
My record of support for military
and economic aid to Israel proves
that it isn't true. Every year, I
have worked hard to be helpful to
Israel, to Soviet Jewry and to the
American Jewish community."
Acknowledging that the Jewish
community has not always agreed
that some of his positions have
been helpful to Israel, Percy says
"I care enough about Israel not to
want to see it stumble in the mis-
takes that could be, in a sense, the
bankruptcy of Israel and the end
of U.S.-Israeli relations. I am a
friend of Israel. But I have always
felt free to exercise the same right
as a member of the Knesset or the
Jerusalem Post to criticize some of
Israel's actions."
Percy recently exercised the
right to oppose transfering the
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. In
explaining his opposition, Percy
said, "Jewish people are the most
intelligent people I've ever
known, but they are also extraor-
dinarily emotional. On that par-
ticular issue, they are wrong,
wrong, wrong."
When asked by the Jewish
Times to explain how that fits in
with what he calls his "deep con-
cern for Israel," Percy said, it
"shows that I'm emotional too. I
respect the community's emo-
tional caring for the people and
the State of Israel. In fact, I share
it."
Percy added that his goals in
the Middle East are "to assure the
security and survival of Israel and
to promote an Arab-Israeli peace
for the benefit of all of the states of
the region." In doing that, he said,
the criticism he now receives from
the Jewish community is similar
to the criticism he received in
1975 "when I visited President
Sadat in Cairo and urged him to
take a step toward peace with Is-
rael. When I told that to a Jewish
group in Chicago, the roof fell in
on me. One leader told me, `Sadat
is a Nazi and I wonder about you.'
Well, the Egyptian-Israel peace
may not be perfect but it is better
than a state of war. I want to work
for peace because I care deeply
about the security and well-being
of Israel."
Percy has been working hard to
get the support of the Jewish
community. He began by enlist-
ing the aid of long-time New York
GOP Senator Jacob Javits. Now
retired, Javits, who is an avid
supporter of Israel, wrote a fund-
raising letter for Percy that said
the Illinois incumbent "repre-
sents the very best in American
political life. He is a man worthy
of our respect and support."
The letter was signed by 59
prominent Illinois Jews. Among
these were A.N. Pritzker of the
Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Joseph
Block of Inland Steel, and Lester
Crown of General Dynamics.
Percy has also received financial
support from the Jewish commu-
nity, receiving close to the
