The festival, officially opened by President Ephraim Katzir, paid tribute to the 11 Israeli athletes murdered by Arab terrorists at me Olympic games in Munich last Sept. 5. At latest count the U.S. was leading with 36 metals and Israel second with 24. TEL AVIV (WNS) —Addressing graduating pilots at an Air Force Base, Defense Minjshter Moshe. Dayan said Israel's armed forces, especially the Air Force, must maintain its superiority in view of the flow of arms going into Arab States from Russia, France, England and the United States. Meanwhile in the Knesset, Foreign Minister Abba Eban said Israel did not agree with the U.S. and Britain that planes and submarines being supplied Saudi Arabia would not eventually be used against Israel. NEW YORK (WNS) — B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation League has.welcomed a statement by a"group of leading Christian scholars which denies that Israel's policy is one of belligerency while asserting that Israel's sovereignty is valid "on moral and juridical grounds." The statement by the 18-membeV Israel Study Group warns that "anti-Semitism is a Pandora's box from which spring out not only atrocities against Jews but also contempt for Christ" and says that the persecution of Jews by Christians reflected "gross ignorance of Jewish history and religion." The group, which was formed two years ago by the Commission on Faith and Order of the National Council of Churches and the Secretariat for Catholic-Jewish Relations, predicts that if inflation and unemployment worsen or another depression sets in "we can be fairly sure that the radical right and or the radical left will make Jews out to be the culprits." WASHINGTON, (JTA) - Sen. Henry M. Jackson (D. Wash.) replied sharply on July 11 to a blistering attack by his Arkansas fellow Democrat, Sen. J. William Fulbright who contended in a speech here oh Jiily 11 that the Jackson Amendment aimed at a renewal of the cold war. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Com¬ mittee, told a meeting of the American Bankers Association that the Jackson Amendment, which would withhold most-favored nation trade status from the Soviet Union unless the latter permitted free emigration for its Jewish and other citizens, amounted to interference in Russia's internal affairs and sought '.'die redress of only one of many injustices of the Soviet system." Jackson appearing on an ABC television in¬ terview, called Fulbright's presentation"sheer non¬ sense." He declared that the purpose of his amendment which has 77 sponsors in the U.S. Senate, "is just to bring about a tiny bit of freedom for JeW and gentile" in the USSR. He charged that Fulbright, along with Soviet Communist Party Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev, is "an advocate of one-way deals with Russia — we give and they take." Jackson said, "I want to see genuine Local Couple Selected For Jewish Life Institute Seminar Among the twenty couples selected to participate in an Advanced Program Seminar sponsored by the Institute far Jewish life are Mr. and Mrs. Marvin L. Glassman, past president of the United Jewish Fund and Council and past chairman of the ^aniens' Campaign Division. The [Seminar is being sponsored by the Council of A.D.L. Says "Superstar" Is Anti-Semitic by BILL COHEN Chronicle Special Reporter The recently-released movie, "Jesus Christ Superstar" is a "distressing and disturbing recreation of the poisonous and discredited anti-Semitic slur of the Oberammergau Passion Play." This was the viewpoint presented to a crowd of more than one hundred Columbus clergymen and women by representatives of the Anti- Defamation League and Dr. Robert Chazan, Professor of Jewish Studies at Ohio State University during a special showing of the picture July 13. Dr. Chazan told the group that the first time he saw the movie, he felt anger, and tiie second time, he felt sorrow because of the portrayal of Jews in the film. "Pontius Pilate is presented as a man in conflict, Judas is presented as a man very deeply in conflict," explained Chazan. "But the only unconfllcted group is the Jews, and they're presented aB a kind of incarnation of evil and hatred." During the film, the Jewish high priests are dressed in black as they walk around on scaffolds, much like vultures, ac¬ cording to Chazan. A written critique of the movie, written^ by the national office of the A.D.L. was also passed out to the crowd. n It scored what it called ■ "the portrayal of collective responsibility." Tbe movie, according to the A.D.L. statement, "invents apocryphal in¬ cidents and dialogue and twists the bare reports of the (CONTINUED ON PAGE 12) Elect Aronson Center President Marvin Glassman Jewish Federations and the United Jewish Appeal in cooperation with the In¬ stitute for Jewish Life.

An¬ swering questions at a luncheon with UN correspondents, Waldheim said that a visit by him to the Mideast might be useful but whether he makes it depends on consultations' he is holding, with the Egyptian and Isareli UN Am¬ bassadors. Waldheim met on July 9 with the Egyptian envoy, Abdel Meguld. He had a one-hour meeting on July 10 with the Israeli Ambassador, Yosef Takoah. He also met on July 10 with the British Ambassador, Kenneth Jamieson, who is this month's president of the -JS«S Mrs. Marvin Glassman weekend of May 11 to the 13th at Brandeis University; (CONTINUED ON PAGE?) Security Council. Waldheim repeated what he said recently in Geneva, that the only way to solve the Mideast dispute is through negotiations but that the negotiations must be under UN auspices. He said the Security Council's debate on the Middle East can be fruitful. But he added.public discussions by itself cannot solve the problem and that is why negotiations are needed. Waldheim, who returned to New York on July 9 said he met in Geneva with President Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia who told him that there had been no follow-up to his recent proposal for a meeting with an Israeli leader. Diplomatic observers here believe it is virtually assured that Secretary General Kurt (CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) TJFU7 "Tomorrow Won!tWait* The Ihiited Jewish Appeal has requested Columbus contributors to convert their pledges into cash im¬ mediately—"tomorrow won't wait!" , Although the United Jewish Fund and Council's 1973 campaign has reached an all-time record high, unless there is a cash redemption of pledges, the immediate needs of people cannot be met. At a recent national meeting where Pinhas Sapir, Israel's Minister of Finance met with United Jewish Appeal officers and National Campaign Cabinet members held on June 28th at the Plaza Hotel in New York, Minister Sapir said "without question the most dramatic, historical Jewish event in the past twenty- five years is the immigration of Soviet Jewry. There is no solution of Soviet Jews but immigration to Israel. We can do it properly only with the help of the tree world. It is support to the vital Jewish Agency programs that makes it possible for Israel's people to •_, absorb Soviet immigrants.'The needs of the people of Israel have dramatically .increased because of the ongoing exodus from the Soviet Union and the need for basic_ absorption services. This takes,cash! A need more);$nperatiVe than in past years, if we are to achieve] pur objective of offering refuge for all who seek Freedom.'' ,• - Gerald S. Coburn of Milwaukee, UJA National Cash Chairman, introduced Mr. Sapir, praising the American community leadership for their outstanding pledge' campaign'' in 1973 and .promised that extra ' collection efforts would be forthcoming to turn those pledges into cash. He said "the problem of absorption is con^imdejd by the fact that each dollar is less due to thp/ecent currency devaluation and-unless monies are, iaun?diately forthcoming it can cause a cutback of essential "services to deserving people — curtailing 'operations in many areas even with the increased temptf of immigration." Morris Mattlin, Treasurer, and Edwin Ellman, Assistant Treasurer of the UJFC are calling upon the Columbus Jewish Community to join with the other communities of the United States to make very effort to redeem their pledges immediately. ''Tomorrow won't wait!"
