cil of Jewish Women, WIZO,
the New Jewish Agenda, and
Jewish groups from Europe.
During the 1975 women's
meeting in Mexico City and
the 1980 mid-decade confer-
ence in Copenhagen, dis-
cussions of Zionism, apar-
theid, and racism dissolved
into ugly free-for-alls. Suppor-
ters of the U.S. as well as Is-
rael were prevented from
speaking or were so, severely
heckled, that many left the
podium in tears, parlimenta-
rian rules of order completely
broke down and chaos ruled.
At the meeting here, how-
ever, the women running the
program maintained disci-
pline through the often emo-
tional, often bitter statements.
Barbara Bick, the mod-
erator, strictly enforced the
limits on all speakers. Sonia
Johnson took names of those
wishing to speak, attempting
to include as many women
from as many countries as
possible. Applause, booing,
and hissing were forbidden.
Instead the women were told
to wave their hands in ap-
proval or to turn thumbs down
for disapproval. After very
fifth speaker, the group sang
songs of peace and sisterhood.
Both Bick and Johnson are
volunteer staff workers at the
Peace Tent, which was the
host for this event, and which
has become a focal point for
the NGO Forum '85.

Hearing Loss
Is Not A Sign
Of Old Age.

Chicago, Ill.—A free offer of spe-
cial interest to those who hear but do
not understand words has been an-
nounced by Beltone. A non-operat-
ing model of the smallest hearing aid
Beltone has ever developed will be
given absolutely free to anyone re-
questing it.
It's yours for the asking, so send
for it now. It is not a real hearing aid,
but it will show you how tiny hearing
help can be. The actual aid weighs
less than an eighth of an ounce, and it
fits completely into the ear canal.
These models are free, so we sug-
gest you write for yours now. Again,
there is no cost, and certainly no
obligation. Although a hearing aid
may not help everyone, more and
more people with hearing losses are
being helped. For your free sample
write today to: Department 62721,
Beltone Electronics Corporation,
4201 West Victoria Street, Chicago,
IL 60646.

community has extended its
hospitality to those who have
had difficulty finding accomo-

This problem arose when
the Kenyan government over-
booked all of its hotels and
then demanded that NGO par-

rooms for the official UN con-

delegates were told they would
be placed in university dor-

surrounding suburbs.

COMMENT

Mengele Moral: Justice
Needed In Able Society

BY FRANKLIN H. LITTELL

Special to The Jewish News

Alan A. Ryan Jr. was quite
right in saying it didn't make that
much difference anyway. He was
talking about the then strong pos-
sibility that the remains un-
earthed near Sao Paulo, Brazil
might be Josef Mengele's. Alan
Ryan's book Quiet Neighbors:

Prosecuting Nazi War Criminals
in America tells the story of his

experience as an officer in the De-
partment of Justice, attempting
to bring some of the_perpetrators
of the Holocaust to justice.
Since his statement an interna-
tional team of forensic experts has
come to the conclusion that the
worm-eaten remains, unearthed
from a common grave under a
false name, are indeed all that is
left of Auschwitz' "Angel of
Death." The first thought is one of
frustration, of resentment against

an end lacking aesthetic quality,
of anger that a monster should
have escaped punishment.
One reason why the myth of
Adolf Hitler's survival has such
great appeal is the natural diffi-
culty of accepting his mediocre
end. A suicide in the bunker in the
Wilhelmstrasse of Berlin, he
picked his own time and place.
Now there is the thought that one
of Hitler's chief killers may have
escaped the hunters for decades,
only to perish in something as
common as a swimming accident.
Mengele has stood as a sign of
the corruption of science by uni-
versity men. He had to doctors'
degrees from two great univer-
sities. He had thatEiskalt quality
which, even wheii misused, even
when lacking moral and ethical
restraints, is so often praised as
