THIS SUNDAY

Is Maxwell
Smart?

The new owner of New
York's Daily News is not
Robert Maxwell, as virtually
all reports about the paper's
takeover have stated.
The tabloid's latest boss is
actually Jan Ludwig Hoch,
the moniker given Mr.
Maxwell by his impover-
ished Orthodox parents upon
his birth in a small
Czechoslovakian village.
According to Editor &
Publisher and the New Re-
public, young Mr. Hoch
fought with the Czech
underground during World
War II, then fled to Britain
after escaping from German
imprisonment.
He joined the invasion of
Europe and, by the time he
reached Berlin in 1945, says
the New Republic, "the
Yiddish-speaking youth had
been transformed into a
clean-cut, Oxford-accented
English officer . . ."
During the latter part of
the war, according to Editor
& Publisher, "he had
operated under various
names, including Ian Robert
Maxwell, reportedly because
someone told him a Scottish
name was appropriate for a
commissioned officer."
One hopes that under Mr.
Maxwell (nee Hoch), the Dai-
ly News does not play as fast
and loose with the facts as
its owner has with his name.

The Story
From Hell

Hell is a more believable
place than ever, according to
a new Gallup poll published
in U.S. News & World
Report.
Sixty percent of Americans
—17 points more than in
1981 — now believe in hell.
Seventy-eight percent
believe in heaven, up nine
points over the last nine
years.
The cover article, entitled
"Hell's Sober Comeback,"
offers many reasons for
hell's new credibility: Baby
boomers' return to tradi-
tional religion; a "sobering
reflection of the pervasive
violence and suffering in
modern society;" maybe "a
shallow nostalgia for the
beliefs of childhood."
But for most Jews today,
says Barry Kogan, professor
of philosophy at Cincinnati
Hebrew Union College, "The
main concern is retribution
in this life. The hottest fires
of hell probably burn in the
human heart, in the harmful
ways we treat others." ❑
