Rabbis protest U.S
WASHINGTON (AP) Seven rabbis
from New York chained themselves to
the iron fence in front of the White
House yesterday to protest the Carter
administration's sale of jet fighters to
Egypt andSaudi Arabia.
They spent about 75 minutes in front
of the Executive Mansion before
unlocking the handcuffs and moving to
Capitol Bill. An eighth rabbi, without
handcuffs, sat in front of the White
Bouse with them.
THE EIGHT protesters remained
there for more than an hour while
police watched them but took no action
to remove them.
About 2,000 demonstrators suppor-
ting the rabbis massed on the broad
sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue and
across the street in Lafayette Park,

(Howard Hawks, 1948) 7 ONLY-AUD. A
In the seasonal critical fights about the 10 Greatest Westerns," this film is
near the top of most lists. JOHN WAYNE (before he became vapidly heroic)
gives one of his best performances as a monomaniacal rancher determined
to get his herd to the railroad at the cost of any life, in the first cattle drive up
the Chisholm Trail. Hints of Captain Bligh here, with MONTGOMERY CLIFT
as a sexually aggressive Mr. Christian. Spectacle (over 6,000 cattle were used
in the shooting), great photography, super action, and a mind-blowing
climax. With WALTER BRENNAN, HARRY CAREY, NOAH BEERY, JR., JOANNE
(Howard Hawks, 1959) 9:15-AUD. A
A sheriff, a drunk, a cripple, and a kid try to keep a killer in foil against the
attacks of the killer's brother and a small army. A classic western and a
triumph for Hawks who transforms a standard plot into the kind of movie that
wins fans. JOHN WAYNE, WALTER.BRENNAN, WARD BOND (the Ford & Hawks
repertory company), with ANGIE DICKINSON and RICKY NELSON looking tough.
Screenplay by Jules Furthmon and Leigh Brackett (THE BIG SLEEP).
