The New Breed Jaguar XJ6

"...world-class handling,
and ride, and refinement,
all in the one chassis."

PERFORMANCE CAR, November 1986*

The new breed Jaguar XJ6 sedan moves
swiftly and surely.
With unique "pendulum" isolation, its
fully independent suspension tunes out
, road imperfections without turning
spongy. It achieves a near perfect balance
of agile handling and supple ride.
Its new double overhead cam six cylin-
der engine, with 24 valves, provides
authoritative response and extraordinary
high speed capabilities. Yet its serenely
silent cabin surrounds the driver and pas-

sengers with the Old World splendor of
supple, fragrant leather and fine wood.
If you'd like to experience all of the
world class qualities of the new XJ6,
please call or visit our showroom. We'll be
happy to arrange a test drive.

ENJOY TOMORROW. BUCKLE UP TODAY.

BETWEEN CROOKS AND COOLIDGE

THURSDAY UNTIL 9 P.M.

erusalem — The Zion-
ist world has been
thrown into a state of
crisis after leading candidates
for the two top posts in the
Jewish Agency and the World
Zionist Organization were re-
jected by the Diaspora
members of the Jewish Agen-
cy executive.
In a dramatic act of de-
fiance this week, the
Diaspora leaders — known as
the "fundraisers" — vetoed
the nominations of Akiva
Levinsky to succeed Arye
Dulzin as chairman of the
Jewish Agency/WZO and
Avraham Avihai to succeed
Levinsky as treasurer of the
two organizations.
Both men were official labor
Party nominees and it had
been confidently assumed
that they would be elected.
It is understood that the
Likud Party will not
nominate Gideon Patt,
Minister of Science in the na-
tional unity government, to
succeed Dulzin.
The fundraisers constitute
50 percent of the Jewish
Agency executive and this
Was the first time in their
16-year partnership with the
Zionists that they had exer-
cised their veto power in the
appointment of top officials.
Amid the bitter recrimina-
tions that followed the deci-
sion, some Labor party of-
ficials accused Dulzin of con-
spiring with Jerrold Hoff-
berger, outgoing chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Governors, to engineer the
veto.
"Levinsky was shot down
by Hoffberger," a senior
Jewish Agency source told
The Jewish News. "He cer-
tainly led the fight and his in-
fluence among the fun-
draisers was obviously
forceful enough to convince
them that neither Levinsky
nor Avihai were suitable can-
didates."
Hoffberger's opposition to
the two men was said to be
personal rather than
political.
He believes that Levinsky,
who is in his seventies, is too
old and that he is too closely
associated with the old guard
of the Zionist establishment,
which the fundraisers would
like to see rejuvenated.
While it appears that
Levinsky's political future in
the Jewish Agency and WZO
is finished, another source
noted that "there are many

factors still to be taken into
account!'
According to one scenario,
Levinsky may yet be elected
chairman of the WZO at the
World Zionist Congress in
December. If that happens,
the Jewish Agency may be
left with Dulzin, whom it does
not want, as its chairman.
If that scenario does indeed
materialize, the two organiza-
tions will have separate
leaders for the first time since
the partnership was forged
between them 16 years ago.
"But this is unlikely to hap-
pen!' said the source. "For
while the partnership is
under severe strain right now,

Levinsky has been
defeated in his bid
to lead the Jewish
Agency.

both the Zionists and the fun-
draisers ultimately realize
that they still need each
other!'
Meanwhile, South African
Mendel Kaplan was formally
elected Wednesday to succeed
Hoffberger as chairman of the
Board of Governors.
Kaplan, who had been head
of Keren Hayesod-United
Israel Appeal, which raises
funds for Israel outside the
United States, presides over a
steel empire that straddles
four continents.
Late this week, it was still
not clear whether he would
take over immediately or
whether he would wait until
after the conclusion of the
Zionist Congress.
What seems certain,
however, is that over the next
few weeks, Kaplan will play a
crucial role in finding a way
out of the present crisis.

Waldheim Denies
OSS Recruitment

Vienna (JTA) — President
Kurt Waldheim last week
denied overseas media reports
that he was recruited by the
Office of Strategic Services
(OSS), percussor to the CIA,
after World War II.
According to the reports,
the OSS began recruiting
German officers who had held
key intelligence posts during
the war. Waldheim, who has
been linked to Nazi atrocities,
including the deportation of
Greek Jews, was a Wehr-
macht intelligence officer in
the Balkans.
