merhorns and the notables on
that now defunct newspaper's
editorial staff.

Therefore he was, in his
active years, among those who
lived with the linotype
machine and its "pig" metals.
He was of the era of hot-type
printing, before computers and
photo offset.

As a co-author of theHistory
of the Jews in the United States,
he was among the first to fulfill
the need for such an historical

record. The book had gone into
three printings.
After his retirement from
the Detroit Times, upon its de-
mise, he served the Jewish Na-
tional Fund and the Isreal
Bond Organization with dig-
nity as public relations man.
Thereby he also gave dignity to
the title PR representative.
That's why the man we ad-
mired in his lietime will re-
main in the memory of jour-
nalistic historical records of
our community.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Paris (JTA) — A Shiite ter-
rorist group in Lebanon an-
nounced last week that it "ex-
ecuted" another Jewish hos-
tage, Yehouda Benesti, 70. He
is believed to be the ninth
Lebanese Jew murdered by
the group which calls itself
"The Organization of the Op-
pressed (Mustadafin) in the
World:'
He is also believed to be the
father of two other murdered
Jewish hostages Ibrahim
Benesti, 34, who was killed on
February 15, 1986, and Yous-
suf Benesti, 33, murdered on
December 30, 1986.
The exact identity and rela-
tionship of the victims is not
entirely clear because there is
no organized Jewish com-
munity in Beirut. Jewish
organization here have only
sketchy documentation on
missing Jews believed taken
hostage.
According to the group's
announcements, 10 Lebanese
Jews were taken prisoners
during the last 20 months
and nine have been killed.
Only three bodies have been
recovered, however. Those
were identified as Haim
Cohen, 38, kidnapped on
March 30, 1985 and murdered
on December 24, 1985; Isaac
Tarrab, 70, murdered late
December 1985; and Ibrahim
Benesti.
The French Jewish com-
munity has appealed to the
French government and to
President Amin Gemayel of
Lebanon to try to secure the
release of Jewish hostages
still alive and the return of
the bodies of those put to
death. Shiite gangs are
presently holding 19 French
nationals hostage.
Neither the French Govern-
ment nor Gemayel seems to
have influence with the Shiite
extremists in Lebanon. Thrry
Waite, the Englishman repre-
senting the Archbishop of
Canterbury in trying to se-
cure the release of hostages in
Lebanon, has intervened on
behalf of the Jewish victims,
so far without success.
He told a press conference
in Beirut that he was also try-

ing to act on behalf of Israeli
prisoners of war in the hands
of various groups in Lebanon
but could do nothing unless
Israel "stops bombing (south
Lebanon) and opens the way
to a peaceful solution" in that
region.

Rare Book
Donated

Jerusalem (JTA) — One of
the only five known copies in
the world of the first edition of
Meshal Hakadmoni, the first
illustrated printed Hebrew
book, has been added to the in-
cunabula collection of the
Jewish National and Univer-
sity Library at the Hebrew
University, the university an-
nounced.
The copy was donated to the
library by Ludwig Jesselson of
New York, who purchased it
for $175,000 — the highest
price ever paid for a Hebrew
printed book.
It was written by the 13th-
century Hebrew poet and
scholar Isaac Ben Solomon Abi
Sahula and printed by the Son-
cino Press in Brescia, Italy, in
1491.
The book is a collection of fa-
bles and allegories in rhymed
prose embellished with 75 pic-
torial woodcuts. It will be dis-
played to the public after un-
dergoing restoration in the li-
brary's laboratory for restora-
tion and preservation.

Inflation
Figures Out

Jerusalem (JTA) — The Is-
rael consumer price index rose
by five percent in December, a
relatively small increase in
line with the treasury's predic-
tions. Economists forecast
steeper rises in January, Feb-
ruary and March however, re-
flecting new economic meas-
ures including the 10 percent
devaluation of the shekel.
Government sources expect
the inflation rate to decline
again by the second quarter of
the year if wage and price re-
straints hold under the new

economic policy.
