GROSSE ISLE

Hackensack, N.J. (JTA) — A
George Bush campaign ad-
vertisement that ran in eight
Jewish newspapers in New
York and New Jersey has
drawn an angry response
from Thomas Dine, executive
director of AIPAC, the Amer-
ican Israel Public Affairs
Committee.
Dine is quoted in the ad as
calling the Republican plat-
form "the best ever — by
either party." The ad was
placed by Victory '88, a New
Jersey state Republican Par-
ty unit.
Dine charged in a letter
that the ad quotes him in a
way that distorts his state-
ment and implies he is recom-
mending the Republican pres-
idential candidate.
"The truth is," he con-
tinued, "that I have not made
any such statement of prefer-
ence and do not intend to do
so, because both candidates
have taken very strong posi-
tions in support of the U.S.-
Israel relationship and
Israel's role as the cor-
nerstone to U.S. policy in the
Middle East."
Dine called the ad "ama-
teurish and stupid politics,"
and asked that such an ad not
be accepted for publication in
the future.
Neither Dine nor several
sources at AIPAC denied that
the words were in fact Dine's
— first written in a personal
note to someone at the Repub-
lican National Convention,
then leaked to the Los
Angeles Times and later
made, in somewhat different
form, in an on-the-record ses-

Tom Dine: Distorted

sion attended by journalists.
"Bush-Quayle did not pro-
duce the ad; it did not direct
the placement of the ad; nor
did it distribute the ad," said
Mark Neuman, special assis-
tant to the deputy campaign
manager of Bush-QUayle '88.
"The ad that Bush-Quayle
produced was a Jewish New
Year ad from the vice presi-
dent?'
The campaign official also
pointed out that the ad in
question nowhere read "Vote
for Bush," with the implica-
tion that Dine's words should
be read simply as approving
the Republican platform and
not as endorsing a particular
candidate.
Neuman stressed that his
organization's role is "simply
to provide information to sup-
porters around the country."
He said he would not send out
an advisory against using the
ad, because "I don't tell state
parties what to do."

Israeli, American Sight
Planet-like Celestial Body

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An Israeli
and American astronomer
are being credited with the
discovery of an hitherto
unknown "brown dwarf' — a
celestial body similar to a
planet, too small to give off
light.
Neither they nor anybody
else have actually seen the
new celestial body, but they
have proved its existence
through mathematical
calculations of its gravita-
tional effect on other celestial
bodies.
Professor Zvi Mazeh of the
ml Aviv University School of
Physics and Astronomy, and
Professor David Latham of
Harvard University reported
their findings to an interna-

tional
conference
of
astronomers held recently in
Baltimore. Their findings
were also published in the
scientific journal Nature and
Science.

The scientists, who are now
investigating three more -
"brown dwarfs," believe that
their discovery of a celestial
body which does not have the
nuclear reactions sufficient to
give off light may help to ex-
plain the problem called
"missing mass," a situation in
which more mass has been
measured near the sun than
can actually be seen.
Brown dwarfs may thus ac-
count for the missing mass
which has puzzled scientists.
