Why do we have Simchas Torah, the rejoicing over the Torah, almost a half year later? This puzzled the rabbis and they answered, it's like getting mar¬ ried. Tlie couple usually celebrates at once but if they were wise, they would wait a little to see if the marriage is a success. A GOOD TIRJtE is had by all on Simchas Torah. It is a time to drink and dance. There is an old wheeze about a Jew who on Simchas Torah went around singing, full of the Simchas Torah spirit abetted of course by liquid spirits. U. N. News Briefs UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —Harold M Julian, aged 36, the single survivor of the Ham¬ marskjoid plane tragedy died this week. He joined the UN Security division in 1952 with his Jewish buddy, Mitchell Gold¬ stein of the Bronx. The two, who had been close friends for years, fought together in World War n as Marines. They also served together in Korea. UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —The day Dag Haminarskjold met his tragic death in Africa, philosopher Martin Buber in Is¬ rael received a personal letter from the Secretary General in which he was Informed that the translation into Swedish of his book, "God and Myself," was complete and that it would soon .appear in Sweden. Dag Ham¬ marskjoid was known as a Hossid ot Buber. UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —Among the many itema ap¬ proved by the Genertil Com¬ mittee for discussion during the 10th assembly were the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA), In the Special Political Ommittee, and the manifestation ot racial preju¬ dice and national and religious Intolerance, in the Third Com¬ mittee. UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —Mongi Slim, Permanent Rep¬ resentative of Tulsia to the UN, was elected President of the 16th session of the General As¬ sembly on Yom Kippur. The Isreali dele^pation was absent. Tunisia is a member of the Arab League sworn to the de¬ struction of Israel. Mongi Slim is known here as a calm, mod¬ erate Arab statesman. UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —^The Jewish population of Norway totals only 930 as com¬ pared with 1,400 before World War II, according to a report today by Harry Korltzinsky, director of the Mosaic Society, which appeared in the "News of Norway" Issued here by the Norwegian Information Service. There are 760 Jews in Oslo, 160 In Trondhelm, and some 30 in other parts of the country. UNITED NATIONS, (WUP) —^The new Free Democrats, who gained prominence during the recent West German elections and who would welcome talks with the Soviets, hold the bal¬ ance of power between the two main contending parties headed by Adenauer and Willy Brandt. It was revealed by a British source here that the New Free Democratic Party is infiltrated by many neo-Nazis. >, the less than cheering verse: "Man comes form dust and to dust returns." "What kind of melancholy verse are you singing on Simchas Torah?" he was ask¬ ed. "It's not .so melancholy," he re¬ plied. "If man came from pearls or gold and silver and returned to dust, that would be sad, but if he comes from dust and. returns .to dust and in between manages to down a bit of schnapps now and then, it's not so l>ad." WK REJOICE OVER THE TORAH on Simchas Torah. Torah is usually translated as Law, but translations arc so misleading. Torah to the Jew really means any kind of learning. Simchas Torah is a kind of annual grad¬ uation day for all. Nowadays, in our synagogues, I am afraid, wc don't get as much Joy out of Slmchtis Torah as our parents. Our synagogues and temples have become very modem and in the course of it, some of the joy has gone by the board. THIS PAST SURBHER, I re¬ visited a town where I had form¬ erly resided. There is a new tem¬ ple there now, so much more beautiful than the old one. Real modern, too. From the looks of it, you would never even know that It is a temple. I spoke to the rab¬ bi, a very fine and cultured man. I congratulated him on the new temple. It's ultra modern, I beam¬ ed. But a quizzical look came over his face. "Did you ever hear the story of tlie modern temple?" he asked. "It was extremely hand-, some and everything was auto¬ mation. If you wanted a siddur, just press a button and you got a siddur. Did you want the Shames? Just press another but¬ ton. The Ark opened by a button. One day, someone pressed the wrong button and tho rabbi dis¬ appeared." DR.

OPPOSITION WANTS STRIGT CONTROLS OVER ARMED FORGES TEL AVTV, (JTA) — Finance Minister Levi Eshkol, who has been entrusted by President IshaJc Ben-Zvi with the formation of the new Cabinet, began discussions yesterday on one of the major demands of the opposition—the introduction of stMcter parlia¬ mentary supervision of the armed forces. The left-wing Mapam and Ach¬ dut Avodah parties Insist on the formation of a Ministerial Com¬ mittee as a supreme body respon¬ sible for the country's security. In an attempt to settle this is¬ sue, Mr. Eshkol conferred yester¬ day with larael Gallli, leader of the Achdut Avodah, who is par¬ ticularly firm on the demand of introducing parliamentary control over the armed forces. Mr. Galill is reported to have prepared a detailed plan for the implementa¬ tion of such control. Meanwhile, representatives of Mapai and other parties are also discussing another issue to affect the next coalition. This one deals with establishing a "collective restKMisibiilty" rule, which would make it noandatory for all parties that are partners of the coalition to support all Government bills in Parliament, or at least not to vote against such bills." The principal issue, however, on whether Mapai Js to have a ma¬ jority of the members of the next Cabinet, is still in dispute. Further intra-party discussions of that issue will be held at meetings scheduled for Wednesday. At a meeting of the inter-party committee of Mapal's former coalition partners—the Liberals, the National Religious Party, Ma¬ pam, and Achdut Acodah—held yesterday, in preparation for fur¬ ther talks with Mr. Eshkol, it was decided to maintain "a firm and united" stand on the three central Issues: 1. Numerical and qualitative parity between Mapai and the other parties In the C!abl- net; 2. An equitable distribution of important portfolios, particu¬ larly the ministries of defense, foreign affairs and finance; and 3. Parliamentary supervision of tho armed forces. Mr. Eshkol today expressed op- (contlnued on paga 4) Special Donor Book For Heritage House The fruits of two years of intensive effort will be real¬ ized Nov. 12 when Heritage House, the new Columbus Jewish Home for the Aged, will be formally dedicated in a noon ceremony.
