"The tragedy," White said, "is
if he had come to us and said he
had a problem and asked us to
work with him, we would have
tried to work with him." White
said the 20 Temple Israel couples
are owed $4,778 per couple, and
that if restitution is not made he
will file a civil suit against Her-
shkovitz.
Hershkovitz last week, before
turning himself into police, tele-
phoned Jewish News editor
Emeritus Fhillip Slomovitz. He
told Slomovitz not to believe all
the rumors and promised to pay
back his debts.
Douglas Etkin of Etkin
Equities, owner of the Franklin
Center office building, said that
Hershkovitz was a good tenant
who "fell behind in recent months.
We took steps to regain the space"
and Hershkovitz moved out of the
building. "Frankly, though, I
have extreme reservations that
we'll ever see one penny of the
money he owes us," Etkin said.
El Al Israel Airlines refused to
comment on the case, but a source
close to the airline said Her-
shkovitz owed $88,000 for 45 tic-
kets sold from April 6 to May 6:
Hershkov itz, according to the
source, may have sold tickets for
the summer months as well, and
illegally discounted international
air fares in exchange for cash
payment.
Hershkovitz is former El Al
employee, having joined the air-
line one year after immigrating to
Israel from Romania in 1950. He
worked for El Al in New York for
2'/. years before coming to Detroit
in 1972 as its Michigan sales di-
rector. In 1978, Hershkovitz and

his wife, Haya, started B & H
Travel, Inc. No charges have been
lodged against Mrs. Hershkovitz.
His business' was focussed on
travel to Israel and some persons
speculate B & H suffered because
of the steep decline in Israel travel
caused by the Achille Lauro and
Rome and Vienna airport ter-
rorism incidents.
William Jackman, a spokes-
man for the Airline Reporting
Center in Washington, D.C., the
central collecting agency for
domestic airlines, confirmed that
B & H was "terminated in May
because of financial default."
Jackman said most domestic air-
lines will honor tickets purchased
by passengers even though the
agent fails to pay the airline.
However, he said, some airlines
could blacklist the tickets and
stop the passengers when they try
to use them. He said discounting
domestic tickets for cash pay-
ments is legal in the U.S., but dis-
counting overseas tickets is pro-
hibited by international agree-
ments.
Jackman said his agency is try-
ing to total monies owed to it by
Hershkovitz, and he declined to
giv e an estimate.
A local travel agent told The
Jewish News that no Michigan
laws license or regulate travel
agents. Some airlines carry
surety bonds or insurance against
fraud by travel agents, but there
is no protection for the public. The
agent said a weak bill regulating
tray el agents has been pending in
the Michigan House of Represen-
tativ es for five years, but it has
received little support.

Arabs' Glubb Pasha Tried
To Hold Back Legion

BY ROBERT E. SEGAL

With the recent death of Sir
John Bagot Glubb, known
fondly to the Arab world as
Glubb Pasha, we would do well
to note the complex views about
Arab fighting forces this mili-
tary genius left behind.
In the course of 88 years of a
colorful life, General Glubb pro-
ved to be a skilled and brave
soldier, prolific historian, and a
favorite lecturer in Europe and
the U.S. for Arab causes.
For Israelis and their friends
everywhere, Glubb did one great
service. A letter he wrote to. the
London Daily Mail in the sum-
mer of 1948 made it clear that
Arab leaders advised Arab vil-
lagers to depart from their
homes even before there was
any threat from Israeli freedom
fighters.
Since that era of Arab
onslaught against Israel, Arab
leaders have tried to convince
the world that their refugees,
some now in third generation,
were driven from their Palesti-
nian homes by the Israelis. As
commander of the Arab Legion
from 1939 to 1956, Glubb knew
better. He was completely aware
of advice given to Arabs to move

out of their homes as the course
of battle favored the Israelis.
Hailed as the greatest of
British Arabists, Glubb' totally
adopted the life of the Bedouins.
As his forces, arrayed against
an emerging new State of Israel,
grew from 2000 in 1939 to

Glubb secretly
dispatched an aide
to a session with
Jewish foes in an
effort to keep the
Arab Legion out of
the approaching
war.

nearly 20,000 when the Arabs
struck at Judea, Samaria, Gaza,
and, eventually, Jerusalem, in
1948, Glubb hoped, but failed, to
convert the desert-bound Be-
