Sylvia Porter
reveals one
guaranteed way
to make your
money grow.

"One savings option that combines a fair return, safety and
simplicity has been with us a long time—U.S. Savings Bonds.
Today's Bonds have changed for the better, now offering
more than adequate interest rates when held five years or more.
Bonds are guaranteed safe—and easy to buy through company
Payroll Savings Plans."

A Generation's Dream
Is Finally Realized

An excerpt from "The Liberation of
Jerusalem"

GEN. UZI NARKISS

Special to The Jewish News

At 9 a.m. came Motta's (Col.
Mordechai Gur) message that
Augusta Victoria had been cap-
tured and everyone at Binyanei
HaUmah was seized with its
impact. The time had come. We
were upon the walls.
"Shall we move?" I mur-
mured impatiently.
We moved.
The forward H.Q. group - two
half-tracks and two jeeps - were
waiting and in we climbed,
with Didi Menusy and Raffi
Amir, a Kol Israel man, whom
Didi had invited for "the ex-
perience of your life." We drove
toward the Mandelbaum Gate,
still blocked because of the
mines, and so switched direc-
tion to the P.Ag.I. houses, tak-
ing the paratroops' assault axis
to the police school. I wanted to
get to the Rockefeller Museum
to see Motta, since I'd had no
contact with him after he an-

Gen. Narkiss, Jerusalem com-
mander general in the Six-Day
War, is now chairman of the
World Zionist Organization's
department of information.

nounced the occupation of
Augusta Victoria.
We passed the East
Jerusalem Y.M.C.A., whose
smashed windows and besmir-
ched walls gave bleak evidence
of battle. The American Con-
sulate on the right was also
battle-scarred. A destroyed gas
station stood next to the tem-
porary memorial erected by the
paratroopers to their fallen
comrades. We sped by, passing
an undamaged mosque and the
bullet-riddled buildings in an
alley.
Suddenly the Old City's wall
rose before us, and the bat-
tlements of Nablus Gate. The
Gate was not yet ours; legion-
naires guarded the parapet and
we turned back to Salah e-Din
Street, where broken windows,
burned automobiles and
derelict electric wires spoke of
war. Opposite the Rivoli Hotel
was a damaged Egged bus and
several paratroopers. I asked
what they were doing.
"Wounded evacuation point,"
one replied.
"Are there wounded?"
"Two, not seriously."
"And what's ahead?"
"Don't know. Shooting."
Another group of
paratroopers halted our ad-
vance, warning about shooting
