PURELY COMMENTARY

Journalistic Disputes

Continued from Page 2

he may run some things in
the future that are critical
of Israel, and I told him
that was perfectly all right
with us, as long as he told
the truth. I said we do feel
that it's not fair for the FP
to run letters that readers
send in, in which un-
truthful statements are in-
cluded . . . and then have
the FP feel it's not their
responsibility because
they are merely reproduc-
ing someone's thoughts.
Phil, I told him that in all
my discussions with you
that you told me to do
everything I can to try to
establish good relations
with the FP for the benefit
of the local Jewish com-
munity and the FP. He
said that he always wanted
to be friendly with you too,
but that you were taking
pot shots at him, or words
to that effect, instead of
calling him on the
telephone to try to
straighten these things out.
I told him, if, in the future,
anything came up, I would
talk to him in person in-
stead of writing a letter.
And I think you should do
the same thing, Phil, based
on what he said.
He also said that as far as
responsibility to the paper
is concerned . . . he only
has one boss, and that is
Lee Hills.
So that's the story up to
now

Cordially,

40 , FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1989

Continuing controversies
arose over Ethridge's editorial
treatment of Israeli occur-
rences. Jerusalem Mayor Ted-
dy Kollek was drawn into
them and there were confu-
sions created by some
secretarial blunders.
In the course of these
developments I exercised cau-
tion which averted publica-
tion of the blunders and
Kollek considered them im-
portant enough to award me
the Jerusalem Medal.
It is worth noting that
Kollek, becoming aware of
one error in 1971, did not
hesitate to apologize and he
sent me this cable:
SINCEREST APOLOGIES
TO YOU AND MARK
ETHRIDGE FOR GREAT
CONFUSION AND
UNPLEASANTNESS MY
OFFICE AND EYE
CREATED STOP BY NOW
YOU HAVE RECEIVED EX-
PLANATION FROM YOUR
PRESS OFFICER WHO HAS
HER YOUTH INEX-
PERIENCE AND RECENT
IMMIGRATION ON HER
SIDE STOP EYE WISH EYE

KNOW HOW TO MAKE
AMENDS
SINCERELY
TEDDY KOLLEK.

When it is necessary to ex-
press regret, Kollek does it.
That's part of his ability.
There is a basic point in
repeated occurences
sometimes embittering: that
there is room for differences
but not for venom, and differ-
ing views can at least reach
mutual respect.
David Lawrence and Joe
Stroud are highly respected
fellow journalists with aims
for continuing differing views
which should lead to aspired
cooperation and good will.
Reaching an understanding,
based on facts and
eliminating distortions, the
American spirit can, as it
must, prevail. Dealing with
the issues factually will be of
benefit to the Arabs as well as
the Jews involved in the
disputes. _
The Free Press spokes-
people have expressed their
apologetics. We are not hesi-
tant in our affirmations. In
an honorable way the em-
phasis can and should remain
the good will of honorable
fellow citizenship. ❑

Ellmann
Chronicle

m

ichigan's records are
replete with notable
achievements in
many spheres. We have the
famous in the arts and
sciences. In the literary field,
which has many enrichments,
the name Richard Ellmann
has emerged in global fame.
Having attained the
Pulitzer Prize for his latest
biographical epic on Oscar
Wilde, published
posthumously, his recorded
achievements keep gaining
acclaim with another
posthumously issued work.
The latest is the series of
essays he accumulated two
years before their publication
and have appeared under the
title, A Long The Riverrun.
Collectively there is much
that is remarkable in the
Ellmann saga. His
biographies of James Joyce
and W.B. Yeats are among the
most important of this cen-
tury. He had already gained
the recognition of being the
most distinguished
biographer. His academic
record is equally unparallel-
ed. His name was associated
with a score of leading univer-
sities, ending as it did with
his death two years ago at Ox-
ford England.
His biographies were ac-
companied by numerous

books relating to Joyce, Yeats
and Wilde. Additionally,
many scores of his essays fill
the rich literary history of the
last 50 years. There is temp-
tation in commenting upon
him to list the universities
where he taught and the
many titles of his essays and
books bylined by him. That
would require yardsticks in
measurements and columns
of printed space. Therefore
the difficulty to adhere to
such temptations. There is
another factor not to be ig-
nored and that is the chroni-
cle of the Ellmann family,
with special reference to one
of the brothers who emerges
as the archivist of the literary
genius.
William Ellmann has earn-
ed appreciation for having
assembled the valuable data
about his brother Richard. It
may well serve for the
preparation of a volume about
the eminent biographer
himself. William and the
other brother, Erwin, chose
their father James' law pro-
fession as their careers. The
entire family record never-
theless is marked by em-
phasis on the literary.



Jason Tickton
Inspired
Generations
t is not an exaggeration:

I

Jason Tickton was a
legend in the community.
This applied to Temple Beth
El, to Wayne State Univer-
sity, music and to musicians
in all walks of life.
He was an inspiration to
the youth who were blessed to
have him as their teacher,
just as he was to their
parents.
He was unforgettable as a
dedicated pedagogue and
performer.
Deeply devoted to Jewish
traditions, Jason Tickton
elevated the community's in-
terests to Jewish aspects of
music.
Recollections
of the
remarkable talents of his
father, Daniel Tickton,
always recall his love of
Jewish literature and devo-
tion to Zionism. Daniel, who
had fame as the "blind ac-
countant" was associated in
his native Poland with
Nanum Sokolow in Hebrew
and Yiddish journalistic ac-
tivities. He wrote extensively
about Sokolow, and his son
Jason assembled an entire
bookshelf of Daniel Tickton's
essays and short stories he
had written in his blindness.
There were marks of
triumph in the interesting
life of Jason Tickton which
will long be remembered.
