Memory of
holocaust
stirred
at service
By JUDY RAKOWSKY
A special service was held yesterday
at the Wesley foundation, affiliated
with the United Methodist Church, to
commemorate the World War II
genocide of six million Jews under the
Nazi regime.
The service was led by Chaplains An-
ne Broyles and Tom Schomaker with a
small congregation participating and
discussing the ordeal. The holocaust
commemoration day marks the 34th
anniversary of the Jewish uprising in
the Warsaw ghetto in 1944.
POSTERS illustrating anti-semitism
from around the world during the thir-
ties hung on walls of the lounge where
the service was held. Pictures of gaunt
Jewish prisoners and heaps of dead
piled on trucks were also displayed.
The worshippers discussed their
feelings about the entire episode, and
ways future persecution of human
beings might be prevented.
Rabbi William Rudolph of Hillel, a
Jewish student-oriented foundation,
was pleased the memorial service-was
held by the Christian group. "If
everybody was aware of what went on,
we would be better human beings,"
Rudolph said. He added, "We've had
anti-semitism for 2,000 years and if
Christians attempt to grapple with it we

Leaving it all behind
Grace Stephan wanted her daughter to be buried
with her jewelry, diamond rings, mink coat and
"other items of personal property which have ex-
treme value." But a Maryland judge ordered the
items removed from the casket of the woman, Doris
Uhler after the dead woman's lawyer argued that
the items were part of the Uhler estate. Uhler was
buried yesterday - without her possessions. Which

Walk, don't drive
It was too far to walk and a pick-up truck was sit-
ting right there in the parking lot with the key in the
ignition, so the prospect of driving home seemed
very appealing to the would-be thief. But when a
security guard noticed an unfamiliar face driving
the truck away, he called police. The thief got off
easily, however, with only a lecture from the men
in blue and a scolding at home. The culprit was only
eight years old.
