monished that the venom was
spreading and it must be coun-
teracted.
But he had no way of anticipat-
ing in 1932 what was to occur at
the end of that decade and the in-
humanities and horrors of the
early 1940s.
Would that people could judge
in advance! The Holocaust might
have been averted. Yet, it must be
said to the credit of some clergy-
men, that they were not all in-
different to what was occurring.
The crime of silence is not appli-
cable to all. There was a handful
that spoke out and acted, and

some of them are credited with
humanism by Dr. Wyman in The
Abandonment.

(While on the subject, a word is
in order in behalf of the Jewish
Information Bureau. Bernard G.
Richards, its founder, who was an
associate of Louis D. Brandeis in
the founding of the American
Jewish Congress and leading
Zionist functions in this country,
created an important service for
world Jewry. His daughter and a
BGR admirer, Steven Wise, con-
tinue that service in a minimal
way. It merits wide support.)

Train Tour of Carmel

Haifa — The train left Haifa at
precisely half past the hour and
rapidly picked up speed. In less
than a minute we were passing
through the pleasant residential
area of Bat Galim. Far above us,
hanging on to a projection of
Mount Carmel, was the freshly
poured concrete of what will be
Haifa's newest tourist attraction,
the cable car descending from the
mountain-top Carmelite monas-
tery down to the waterfront.
The train made a slaw 180-
degree turn on the narrow strip of
land between the mountain and
the sea, making the circuit
around the nose of the Haifa
peninsula, before straightening
out and heading due south.
On our right, the sea, and on our
left the elongated ridge of Mount
Carmel. For a fraction of a mo-
ment we caught a glimpse of
Elijah's Cave before the train
whizzed by.
The strange-looking structure
built right into the sea is the Is-
rael Oceanographic Research
Center, and immediately after it
are the excavations of Shikmona,
the ancient city which preceded
Haifa in antiquity.
Our gaze shifts to the left.
Gleaming white, high-rise resi-
dential buildings stand on the site
of what was once known as Shaar
HaAliyah, Israel's Ellis Island,
where hundreds of thousands of
new immigrants were processed
on their arrival in the years im-
mediately following establish-
ment of the state.
In proper season the waterfront
is filled with thousands of
bathers, enjoying sand, sky and
sea at Carmel Beach. The other
side, quick, see the mountaintop
homes stepped and staggered
down the side of the hill, architec-
ture adapted to the steep slope.
In no time at all we pass the
complex of science-based indus-
tries, where most of the city's high
technology workshops and
laboratories are locatod, giving
the Carmel its new appelation,
Microchip Mountain.

tainly can not be secret, since
they're exposed for all to see.
Much of it looks like vehicles cap-
tured in the Six-Day War. High
above, peeping over from the
other side of the mountain, are the
top floors of Haifa University's
32-story tower. Now we are run-
ning parallel to the coastal high-
way, and reckless motorists seek
to race the train. The sea is still
with us on the right.
In season, many of these fields
are white with cotton. The mile
after mile of braod-level vegeta-
tion are banana plantations. The
big bunches of green bananas are
primly and puritanically covered
with blue plastic bags.
There, on the promontory out to
sea are the picturesque ruins of
Atlit, built up by the Crusaders
almost 800 years ago.
Then we see shallow pans
where sea water is allowed to
evaporate in the sun, leaving be-
hind their residue of clear salt.
Not much further we come to
pools of a different kind. These are
fresh water ponds where carp and
other finned and scaled creatures
are grown for the local market. In
season you will also see huge
flocks of migrant birds, among
them pelicans, who make this a
picnic ground where they get a
free lunch at the expense of the
fish farmers.
Modern Atlit is a pleasant
farming community, and occa-
sional trains stop here. A kibbutz
on the right, another on the left, at
the very waterfront, and then, off
to the left, on the foothills of the
Carmel, the spreading Arab vil-
lage of Furadis, which we suppose
could also be spelled Paradise.
Just beyond it the outskirts of
Zichron Yaakov become visible,
and the unusual rest and vacation
resort which won a prize for its
contour-hugging architecture.
Twenty-five minutes have
elapsed since we left Haifa, and
we are about to pass the last of the
Carmel. Ahead of us are
Binyamina, miles of citrus plan-
tations, lofty eucalyptus trees lin-
ing the tracks, reminders of the
day when Hadera was a swamp.
