"Great work

wing with the dirt and disruption produced
L by a renovation or addition to your house

and Wendy Hamburger thought prior to hiring
Gittleman Construction to add two upstairs bedrooms
and baths as well as recreate the family room in their
Franklin home.

We lived through this from April to September
and it couldn't have been easier," Wendy said. They
kept right on schedule and within budget, and the
quality was outstanding. To top it off, they were
incredibly neat."

So, if you're planning to remodel or add-on, but fear
the chaos, call Gittleman. With an emphasis on function, aesthetics and budget, the Gittleman team is
committed to producing total satisfaction and enduring value with the least amount of aggravation.

Just ask the Hamburgers.

On Restitution

their infant son, Adam.•

Washington/JTA — Poland has not
done enough to return Jewish prop-
erty seized by the Nazis, U.S. law-
makers said.
At a hearing on Capitol Hill, law-
makers agreed with the assessment of
Jewish officials who testified at the
session, charging that Polish officials
have made little effort at restitution.
"We have a strong sense that Poland
has let all of us down," said Rep.
Christopher Smith, R-N.J., who has
been closely involved in monitoring
restitution efforts.
President Bush is expected to raise
the issue when he meets with
Poland's president.

Is Grateful

After a Pakistani court convicted
four Islamic terrorists in the kidnap-
slaying, Pearl's family issued a state-
ment saying, "Today's verdict is the
first chapter in this process. We hope
and trust that the search for the
remaining abductors and murderers
will continue, so that all accom-
plices in this unthinkable crime will
be brought to justice."
In a videotape released earlier this
year, Pearl affirmed his Jewish her-
itage before being executed by his
abductors. In the verdict, the
British-born kidnap mastermind,

death. His three accomplices were
given life sentences. They were also
