would not release certain fi-
nancial statements, such as
total pledges and cash
received amounts for this
year or last, the source said
that "in the last three mon-
ths there's been an upsw-
ing" in pledges. But the in-
crease was not enough to
avoid the dismissals, the
source added.
AIPAC spokeswoman Der-
showitz stressed that every-
thing be kept in "perspec-
tive." For example, she said,
in January 1991 there was no
Chicabo bureau; the recent
layoff of Schaffner resulted
only in the office being re-
duced from nine to eight
employees.
Also, she noted, AIPAC
had on its payroll 95
employees at the end of
1987, compared with
roughly 140 today. Der-
showitz added that AIPAC is
no different than other Jew-
ish organizations that have
been hurt by the sluggish
economy.
But the dismissals over the
last two months have left
morale "very low," accor-
ding to one informed source.
"One minute you hear a
rumor, and the next minute
they're clearing out their
desk," the source said, refer-
ring to the wave of layoffs
and the resulting uncertain-
ty felt by many of the re-
maining employees. "It's
difficult to concentrate on
your work. People are
frightened."



Neo-Nazis
Hit Cemetery

Amsterdam (JTA) —
Holland has reacted with
shock at the neo-Nazi
desecrations of more than
200 graves of Allied soldiers
who fell during World War
II.
Right-wing extremists
spray-painted neo-Nazi graf-
fiti on the graves in the
Allied Military Cemetery
near Nijmegen, which is
close to the German border.
The incident occurred just
one month before the 49th
anniversary of an ill-fated
Allied attempt to cross the
Rhine over a German-held
bridge near Nijmegen — a
battle made famous in the
film A Bridge Too Far.
In the cemetery were
buried the 1,642 Allied
soldiers who lost their lives
in the battle for the libera-
tion of Nijmegen in
February 1945.
The tombstones were
painted with swastikas and
slogans in English, Dutch
and German. 111

Charity
Begins
at Home

. . . but it doesn't end there.

As children, we learned the importance of doing
mitzvot — good deeds — to help other people.
As adults, we learn that building a secure future
for ourselves and our families is also a mitzvah.

But can you do both?

Yes, you can. The answer is a charitable gift
annuity from the Federated Endowment Fund of
the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.

Consider this:
If you are age 50 or older, you may be able to
double the interest you earn currently with
certificates of deposit and other investments.*

Charitable gift annuities provide:
'income at a higher rate of return for the rest of
your life
'partially tax-free income
'current income tax savings

*If you are age 70 and your CD is earning
3.5%, you deserve better. With a charitable gift
annuity, you can receive a 7.8% annual pay-
ment, plus other benefits.

But the best part is, you can enjoy all these
benefits and others while bringing comfort to
the aged and hope to the disadvantaged.

You can secure your own future while helping
provide a new life for Jewish refugees brought
to freedom.
Sound good to you? Call the Federated Endow-
ment Fund for more-information: 642-4260,
