The Tennis Co. 16th Annual

With the mention in the
current discussion of Ruth
St. John, we recall the scrip-
tural Ruth, the daughter-in-
law of Naomi:
"Entreat me not to leave
you and to turn back from
following you; wherever
you go, I will go; wherever
you stay, I will stay; your
people shall be my people,
and your God shall be my
God; wherever you die, I
will die, and there will I be
buried. May the Lord
punish me time and again
if anything but death
parts me from you!"
The book of Ruth takes

its name from Ruth who
clung to her mother-in-
law Naomi with all the
unselfishness of true-
hearted affection. The
narrative is one of idyllic
beauty. It is the most
charming short story in
the Bible and presents a
pleasing picture of life in
Israel during the period of
the judges.

Opposition Groups
Leave The Knesset

Jerusalem (JTA) — Opposi-
tion members of the Knesset
stalked out of the chamber
en masse last week to pro-
test "deliberate delaying"
tactics by the Knesset
speaker that, they say, twice
snatched voting victory from
their grasp.
A leader of the Likud,
Moshe Katsav, said the
speaker, Shevach Weiss of
Labor held up key votes
twice within the past week
to save his party from defeat
on the floor by allowing co-
alition members time to
reach the chamber.
The immediate cause of
the walkout came at the end
of a tense debate over pro-
posals to equalize child
benefits paid to Arab and
Jewish Israelis.
Present regulations award
larger payments to army
veterans. That means that
most Arabs, who do not
serve in the army, receive
smaller payments.
Finance Minister
Avraham Shohat assured
the Knesset the government
would be changing this
situation over a two-year
period; by 1995, full equality
would prevail in the matter
of child benefits, he said.
He therefore asked pro-
ponents of private member's
bills on the issue to agree to
defer voting on their pro-
posals. The three proponents
But Likud whips, noticing
the coalition did not have a
majority on the floor, exer-
cised their right under
Knesset regulations and
called for an immediate vote.
Deputy Speaker Esther

Solomowitz of the opposition
Tsomet party agreed. Just
then, Mr. Weiss entered the
chamber, mounted the
podium and changed places
with Ms. Solomowitz.
Several minutes of uncer-
tainty followed, amid moun-
ting cries of fury from the
Likud benches and a gradual
filling of the coalition ben-
At that point, Mr. Weiss
asked Ms. Solomowitz to
resume her place and con-
duct the vote as she had in-
By then, however, the co-
alition had a clear majority
in the chamber and Katsav
announced his party would
not take part in the vote. All
Likud and other opposition
Knesset members thereupon
rose and walked out.
Mr. Weiss later maintain-
ed he had been "fully in the
right" and denied any inten-
tion of helping his own side.
He said Ms. Solomowitz had
unwittingly misled him on
the precise procedural situa-
tion at the moment of their
But, as she is a neophyte
Knesset member and a
woman, he did not wish to
wrangle with her in public,
he said.
But the Likud leadership
pointed to a similar incident
just a week ago in a
preliminary vote on a
government bill lifting a ban
on meetings with the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
Then, too, the coalition
seemed to lack a majority as
