Wallace Retires
60 Minutes reporter Mike Wallace,
88, says this season will be his last .
with the show. He explained that the
demands of the job, including long
planes flight, are no longer as appealing
as they once were.
Wallace is a University of Michigan
graduate who recently donated his
papers to his alma mater. Last year, he
talked at length about his Jewish back-
ground to author Abigail Pogrebin,
who formerly worked for 60 Minutes.
He recounted how he grew up in a
moderately observant home and still
recites the Shema prayer every night
before retiring. However, he has not
been a practicing Jew in his adulthood,
and only his first wife (he is now mar-
ried to #4) was Jewish.
Wallace says he was_hurt by charges
that he was a "self-hating Jew" because
of some hard-hitting pieces he did on

Israel. He defined himself
in general terms as a
supporter of Israel and
assigned much blame
for the breakdown of the
peace process to Yasser
Arafat, whom he had
interviewed many times
over the years.

Wallace told Pogrebin
that he has to remind his
son, Fox News reporter Chris Wallace,
that Chris is, in fact, Jewish. (Mike had
Chris with his Jewish wife).
Mike explained that Chris was raised
by a non-Jewish stepfather and is mar-
ried to a non-Jewish woman — and
barely acknowledges being Jewish.

"Chris" is a question .Pogrebin didn't
