that "becoming a father gives
you license to have emotions
and show love."
If all of this sounds just a bit
too shmaltzy and maudlin for a
man known for the sting in his
humor, well, it is And there are
passages in the book that while
obviously sincere seem self-
indulgent. The book is written
in diary form, chronicling in
great detail the events leading
up to The Birth and a few col-
icky months beyond, from the
Greenburgs' unsuccessful at-
tempt to conceive on a disastr-
ous Caribbean vacation to Dan's
overzealous participation in
obstetrical exams to practicing
natural childbirth techniques to
changing diapers.
The writing is smooth and
easy and the emotions ring true.
Most parents have experienced
what the Greenburgs went
through. This makes Green-
burg's chronicle either universal -
or trite, depending on your
mood. Dan Greenburg's mood
these days is mellow. He's enjoy-

thank you) and at work on a

As for whether or not he plans

Campaign To Bar
Waldheim Launched

Los Angeles (JTA) — The Los
Angeles-based Simon Wiesen-
thal Center last week launched
a national campaign to urge the
Reagan Administration to im-
mediately bar Kurt Waldheim
from entering the United States.
One million post cards which
bear both a 1943 photograph of
Waldheim in German uniform
and a 1979 photograph of him as
UN Secretary General are being
distributed nationwide on the
theme, "America says no to
The post cards, addressed to
President Reagan at the White
House, read: "In 1947 Kurt
Waldheim was charged with
`murder and slaughter' by
Yugoslavia. Those charges were
accepted by the UN War Crimes
Commission, of which the
United States was a member.
As an 'alien' Mr. Waldheim does
not have the right to be allowed
entry into the U.S. unless he can
exhonorate himself of the war
crimes charges. Because of the
uniqueness and magnitude of
Nazi crimes, we urge your Ad-
ministration to enforce the let-
ter of the law and bar Mr.
Waldheim from our shores."
The Center was motivated to
launch its drive when it learned
that Austrian diplomats and
business interests had launched
an intensive lobbying effort to
pressure Washington to allow
the likely winner of next month's
Austrian Presidential run-off to
enter the United States after the
June 8 election.
In another development,
Waldheim said Israel's Minister
of Justice Yitzhak Modai was
repeating "groundless allega-
tions" when he remarked that

evidence Israel has obtained so
far indicates that Waldheim was
at the very least an "accessory"
to war crimes committed in the
Balkans during World War IL
Waldheim responded to
Modal in telephone interview
with the Jerusalem Post. It was
the second time he defended
himself in the Israeli media. He
told Yediot Achronot that he
was being unfairly accused and
that he wanted very much to
visit Israel if he is elected.
Modai's remarks, on Voice of
Israel Radio, came after the
Justice Minister was given an
interim report by a special com-
mittee investigating charges
that Waldheim was implicated
in atrocities against Yugosla-
vian partisans and the mass
deportation of Greek Jews when
he served as an intelligence of-
ficer in the Balkans.

Blasts WJC
On Waldheim

New York (JTA) — The World
Jewish Congress was strongly
criticized last weekend by
Vienna-based Nazi hunter
Simon Wiesenthal and the head
of the Vienna Jewish commun-
ity over its handling of the
charges • against Austrian
Presidential candidate Kurt
Wiesenthal charged that the
WJC tactics used in uncovering
the Waldheim documents link-
ing him to war-time atrocities
against Yugoslav partisans has
aided in stirring anti-Semitic
sentiment in Austria.
