"All of us are thinking of
other things while we work,"
he says. "The common Joes
think about television and
football. Most are content.

"Most people say, 'Well I'm

just a guy on the line and
there's really not much else I
can do.' "
In his wallet, Mr. Ham-

everyone. The Beatles were
his heroes.
"This was from back stage
at a Cleveland concert," he
says. "He played it. He raved
about it. Then he said if he
bought it, it would end up in a
warehouse. And he said the
craftmanship was too fine for
that to happen."
He fantasizes about Paul
McCartney buying the guitar
and playing it during a con-
cert.
But it's just a dream. Now
he has to go back work — on

Exhibit Shows
Czech, Israel Ties

Prague (JTA) —
Czechoslovakia's ties with
Israel were acknowledged
and strengthened by two
events here.
An exhibition on the histo-
ry of Jews in Czechoslovakia
was opened May 11 under
the patronage of President
Vaclav Havel.
On May 12, two memorial
tablets donated by the
Association of Veterans of
the Haganah were unveiled
at the Military Museum of
the Czechoslovak Army. One
honors the memory of Jews
who fought in the Czech
armed forces and with par-
tisan groups during the Nazi
occupation.
The other expresses ap-
preciation to the
Czechoslovak republic for its
support during Israel's War
of Independence in 1948 by
training Israeli pilots and
paratroopers and delivering
arms and military equip-
ment.
Czechoslovak citizens are
seeing for the first time the
aid their country gave to the
fledgling Jewish state.
The tablets were unveiled
by Deputy Defense Minister

Antonin Rasek and Gen.
Karel Pezl, chief of the Gen-
eral Staff. Mr. Rasek observ-
ed that at certain stages of
World War II, the majority of
soldiers in the Czechoslovak
army were Jews.

Israel's ambassador, Yoel
Sher, and a retired Israeli
air force commander, Gen.
Mordechai Hod, attended.
Mr. Sher also participated
with Deputy Minister of
Culture Milan Uhde in the
opening of the cultural ex-
hibition titled "Where Cul-
tures Meet." It was prepared
by the Beth Hatefutsot Mu-
seum of the Diaspora, in Tel
Aviv, in cooperation with
the Jewish Museum in
Prague.

The exhibition was
originally opened in Tel
Aviv in April 1990 by Presi-
dent Havel who was visiting
Israel. It was brought to
Czechoslovakia by the
Ronald S. Lauder Founda-
tion of New York.
Mr. Lauder, former U.S.
ambassador to Austria,
stressed at the ceremonial
opening the educational
value of the event.
