Serving Columbus, Dayton, Central and Southwei VoL 40, No. 23 FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1962 nvaiftnoiMsaw Qo D*vot«d to Amtrleait ^^ and Jawlih Idub,,. We Pause To Salute Brandeis Graduation exercises on the Brandeis University campus this weekend, followed by the Itth annual conference of .the Bran¬ deis University National Women's Committee gives ua pause to sa¬ lute all those who have made possible America's first Jewish- sponsored university. Most of us came on the Ameri¬ can scone to find college cam¬ puses covered with the Ivy plant¬ ed by past generations. College tradition and age are lauded in song as old grads grow misty (This article vms prepared by Mrs. Ailan Tarsliisli, public¬ ity cliairman of Brandeis Women. We Ix-lleve it will bo wortliwhllc for all segments of tho community.) eyed at class reunions. But In our time we have witnessed the birth of a full blown university which in 14 years is fast catching up with many venerable older ¦ coilegos. WITH THE HISTORIC LOVE ot learning ot the Jewish people, it is strange that it took so long for tho idea of creating a univer¬ sity '.I take hold. It is the first time in America that Jews have been the host in an institution of liighor learning. Meretofore we had always been the guests of other denominations which have founded some of our finest col¬ leges and universities . . . Har¬ vard, Yale, Wellosloy, Notre Uame. Wesleyan ... to njime but a f<'W. A fortunate set of circumstances occurred back in 1948 . . . the iivailabiiity for purchase of an established campus . . . the old Middlesex Medical School at Waltham. Mass. . . . beautifully situated in tho rolling country- sicfe of New England, and a small group of visionary men, not tho least of whom was Dr. Abram L,. Sachar, who were willing and ready to venture their dreams on a largo scale. From the beginning Dr. Sachar would settle for nothing less than tho best in education. Although non-sectarian, Brandeis embodies the ideals of the Jewls.h .aith. WHEN UH. i^ACHAR was nam¬ ed the outstanding "Jewish Man ot the Year 1958" by Dr. Jerome D. Folkman of Temple Israel, Dr. Sachar wrote Dr. Folknian with characteristic modesty "Words fail in this Instance because one is always conscious of his own shortcomings and limitations and the quirks of tate that .place him in the public eye. I choose to view this award as your percep¬ tive way bf recognizing Brandeis University's achievements in tho field of higher education. We are proud of what has been created; and your fine community, through its allegiance to the first Jewish- sponsored non-sectarian univer¬ sity in America, has every right to share that sense of accomplish¬ ment." Jewish women across the land have accepted the challenge of building a library for the Univer¬ sity which in time will be unsur¬ passed. They have not been con¬ tent to stop with building the library but thoy have been inspir¬ ed to look into the books them¬ selves through study courses out¬ lined by Brandeis professors. Two such study groups have developed in Columbus so that the Brandeis ideal reaches far beyond the confines of the cam¬ pus. With so worthy a namesalte as the late, loved Justice Ix>uis Uembitz Brandeis, may the Uni¬ versity go foi-ward to greater and greater achievements.

(JTAi One of the most cxtraordin/iry ci'ents in all Jowish history '^ime to a fit¬ ting ond last week in Israel when Adolf Eichmann was executed for crimes without parallel in thi; bloody record of m.tn's iohuman- ity to man. The story of the search for the former chief ot the bureau for Jewish Affairs In Mitler:i in¬ famous Gestapo burst upon the world when Prime M'inister David Ben-Gurion announced to tho Knesset on May 2,1. 1060 that Eichmann had boeii tracked down, seized and brnught to Is¬ rael. THE END GAMIC in a cell in Ramleh prison near Te! 'Aviv in whioh a makeshift giiilows i'.ad been quickly constr-ui'tcd Eich¬ mann walked quic'iy to liis mom' 0!\l of truth, in.si-.'ii.'.;; lo tlie ciul that he had been meri-ly a cos in the vast Nazi mi'.nii ¦ nia.'h- inery that consumed .''ix million European Jewislv men. women and children. Shortly after midnight. the trapdoor was sprung by Iwo men hidden behind a screen so that no one should ever know their identity and Eichmann was pro¬ nounced dead a few minutes later. The body was promptly cremat¬ ed a id the a.'ihes scattered on tiif Mediterranean sea .su that neo- Nazis could not make a shrine over his grave. IT WAS the first I'xoculion in Israel'.s 14 - year history .. .del the only law on Israel's books providing capital puni-shmcnt - the law for the punishment of pcrpcrators of genocide against the Jewish people nnd other crimes against iiumanity. The last act of the drama came quickly. Earlier in the week a tribunal of Israeli Supreme Court judges turned down Eich¬ mann's appeal from the verdict and sontenoo of death imposed by a Jerusalem District Court. The rejection by the appeals tri¬ bunal left only one recourse, cle¬ mency by President Ben-Zvi. He received the request trom Justice Minister Dov Joseph early on Thursday, May 31; spent most of tho day in intensive study of tho mass of documents, then notified the Commissioner of Police he could find no reason for clemency. AT 1 A.M. .lune I, the Lsraol Government relea.sed a bulletin which said that "Adolf Eichmann was executed by lianging yes¬ terday in accordance with the sentence of death by thi' Jeru¬ salem District Court on IJecember 15, 1961. The appeal having been dismissed by the Supreme Court on May 29, 1962 and the Minister of Justice having certified that the President has decided not to exercise his prerogative of clem¬ ency, thi.' hanging was carried out. The body was I'Xamined by a government jiliysiclan who pro¬ nounced life to be extinct at 2368 hours 111'.58 p.m.)" The buliolin added that the execution was witn(?ssed by the superintendent of prisons, a gov¬ ernment physician, an officer of the Tel Aviv District Administra¬ tion, two police officers who were present in court when the death sentence was pronounced ''to identify Eichmann as the person who was condemned to death," and a Canadian clergyman of the Protestant faith, the Rev. Will¬ iam Hull. Two representatives at the local press and two represent¬ atives of the foreign press were also present.
