IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES
YOU CAN HELP

"It made me more compas-
sionate," he now says. "It
made me more understanding
of the conditions that prevail
when you are under hostile
scrutiny.
"Maybe I became — maybe
not kinder — but maybe a lit-
tle more compassionate!"
Wallace has no compassion
for those news programs to-
day that seek sensationalism
over substance.
"It's all a question of heat
and light," he contends. "If
you're only after the heat, au-
diences will understand that.
They will know if a story is
being done only for sensa-
tionalism."
Wallace is very much the
sensation in an industry of
leading lights. He has won a
numer of Emmy Awards, in-
cluding an honor for his
repott on "The Nazi Connec-
tion," revealing the role this
courny has played in helping
Nazi war criminals elude
justice.
Indeed, Wallace's bio brims
with awards and honorary
degrees, including one from
the University of Penn-
sylvania last month.
In a career that dates back
to the 1940s, when he served
as a radio writer/broadcaster,
Wallace would seem primed
for some time off from his
prime-time schedule.
And while "60 Minutes" is
adding two correspondents —
Steve Kroft and Meredith
Vieira — next season, partial-
ly in response to the loss of co-
editor Diane Sawyer, don't ex-
pect to hear Wallace ask for a
lightened load.
He is not afraid of hard
work or hard questions.
"There aren't any more hard
questions for me," he says.
"So," with a wink and a
playful tap, he shoots, "fire
away.'-'

Aliyah
May Double

Jerusalem (JTA) — Im-
migration to Israel from ec-
onomically troubled Argen-
tina is likely to double in the
months ahead, according to
Deputy Premier David Levy,
who just returned from a vis-
it to Buenos Aires.
A total of 1,618 im-
migrants came here from
Argentina in 1988.
Levy, who is also minister
of construction and housing,
urged. Israel to send more
emissaries to that country to
speed up the process.

e's exhausted. . . and with good
reason. He commands a unit assigned
to the Gaza Strip. Every hour, every
day he's alert, watching for the stones
and the flaming bottles of gasoline that come
raining on his troops without warning. He tries
to keep the peace...in the center of a political
struggle he did not create ...that was there
before he was born...that he is powerless to
solve. As nations debate the outcome, he carries
his awesome responsibility, commanding an
intense group of young men ...hoping that his
next action will help bring peace...and he is
only twenty-two.

We try to make his life a little less difficult. We
are the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, _
working hand in hand with the Association for
the Well-Being of Soldiers in Israel . ..Israel's
best known non-political, non-profit,

philanthropic organization. We've been serving
Israel's soldiers for more than 40 years by
providing rest & recreation, soldier's hostels,
base clubs, mobile recreation units, educational
programs, hitchhiking shelters, holiday gift
parcels and much, much more.

In this critical time, we are proud to stand solidly
with these brave young Jewish men and women
of the Israel Defense Forces as they face what
may be their most difficult challenge. We want
them to know that they do not stand alone.

AND YOU CAN HELP... Join us in this all-
important expression of support for the young
people on the front lines. Stand with those who
risk their lives daily defending the Jewish
homeland, the only democratic nation in the
Middle East! Send us your name and/or your tax
deductible contribution so you too can be listed
as one who supports Israel's soldiers.

Just think for a moment! If there were no Israel Defense Forces - would there be
an Israel today . . . or will there be an Israel tomorrow!

A HAPPY, HEALTHY
