Two dozen volunteers (photo, bottom left) worked hard to register the participants in the Walk-a-Thon. Walkers signed in with their pledge cards at tables in front of the Jewish Center. The first of two stops on the ^kilometer Walk-a-Thon circuit, at Roosevelt and Main, combined a checkpoint and soft drink stand. Orange drink was donated by the McDonald's at 3500 E.

Glenn Says PLO Should Be In On Peace Negotiations GENEVA (JTA)-Sen. John Glenn (D. Ohio), who announced recently that he will seek his party's nomination for the Presidency in 1984,* believes the Palestine Liberation Organization should join in the Middle East peace negotiations, according to an interview with the former astronaut published in the Swiss weekly, Construire. - "No permanent solution to the conflict will be possible without the participation of the PLO,'' Glenn was quoted as saying. He said that while the U.S. should be responsible for Israel's security, U should not support the creation of new.settlements by Israel in the occupied terri- (CONTINUED ON PACE 11) "We think the Walk went well.

The American diplomat spent time listening to Israel's leaders appraise the situation with respect to the negotiations with Lebanon and their explanation of Israel's position. At a dinner given in his honor by Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, Shultz did not deal in specifics. But his speech, obviously carefully and pointedly worded, stressed that the time for talk has ended and "the time to decide" is now at hand. "The negotiation has gone on for four months," Shultz noted. "If the remaining issues had been easy, they would already have been settled. They have been debated, analyzed, pored over, agonized over. Now is the time to resolve them. As the Bible tells us, to everything there is a season.... Now is the time to decide. As in every negotiation, there must be compromise. For every risk that is taken, there is gain. And the risks of failure are far greater than any risks of an agreement as it is now envisaged." AH arrangements have been made for the May 12 Anti-Defamation League of Arrangements Complete For May 12 ADL Dinner Honoring John Fisher Economic Advisors. The event will take place at the Hyatt Regency. Adding to the spirit of the tribute, the Anti-Defamation League is now celebrating its 70th anniversary. The problems that the ADL has faced since 1913, when a small group of people started the organization with a handfull of stationery and two desks in a Chicago law office, have changed somewhat. But the ADL has remained true to the course set in its original charter: "To stop the defamation of the Jewish people; to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike." In 1913, ADL began the "battle to protect American Jews from the consequences of defamation as experienced in the'painful Jewish history of persecution. In 1983, as the League looks back upon its 70 years of battles, in behalf of the Jewish community and the democratic way of life, it sees remarkable and positive achievements. And difficult ' (CONTINUED ON PAGE 5) John E. Fisher B'nai B'rith's Americanism Award Dinner honoring John E. Fisher. Fisher is general chairman and chief executive officer of Nationwide Insurance Company and serves as chairman of the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce. John W. Kessler and Melvin L. Schottenstein are dinner chairmen. The guest speaker will be Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the President's Council.of Shultz added: "If we succeed in Lebanon ... we will have enlarged the circle of peaceful relationships between Israel and its neighbors. The peace process continues. It must continue and it must advance."' He warned that "To cease our efforts is to allow bitter wounds to fester. ... President Reagan is committed to working with you on the noble enterprise of peacemaking." Shultz appeared to be indicating in those remarks that once an accord with Lebanon is achieved, the Administration will want to move ahead briskly with its efforts to revive Reagan's September 1 Middle East peace initiative. But neither the Reagan plan nor the Palestinian issue was raised during the .Secretary of State's meetings with Israeli leaders. Shultz is concentrating on one issue at a time and an agreement between Israel and Lebanon clearly.has top,priority on his agenda at present. The Israelis, for their part, sought to focus American attention on what they regard as the growing menace of the Soviet presence in Syria. Begin pressed that point at his meeting with Shultz, attended by Israel's ranking civilian and military policymakers. Begin insisted that Israel and the U.S. had an urgent and abiding mutual interest in standing up to this "threat." Shultz also expressed concern about the Soviet build-up in Syria. But members of his entourage expressed some surprise at the intensity with which Begin pushed the view that security in the north involved not only local problems along the Lebanese border but the strategic military challenge posed by Soviet-backed Syrian forces in eastern Lebanon. Begin introduced Shultz to Israel's new chief of military intelligence, Gen. Ehud Barak, who told the Secretary that new, Soviet-manned electronic warfare helicopters are flying over Syria; 800 Soviet T-72 tanks have been added to Syria's stock of 3,500 tanks; a .Soviet communications facility near Damascus enables direct contact with Moscow and that Syria is increasing its standing army to 400,000 men by deferring mobilizations and calling up new groups of soldiers. Government officials promptly supplied that information to the news media, which published it immediately after it was submitted to Shultz. American journalists accompanying the Secretary of State pondered the significance of this Israel ploy. Some suggested that Begin is looking for political support at home for a withdrawal from Lebanon in order to reduce the risk of war with Syria. Others maintained that Begin is trying to divert American opinion to the issue of a Soviet menace in order to justify a continued Israeli presence in Lebanon. IMF Campaign Concludes With June 1 Dinner' Edwin M. Ellman, 1983 United Jewish Fund General Campaign chairman, has set Edwin Ellman Wednesday, June 1, for a celebration of campaign achievement at the Campaign Closing Dinner. Although the final total will be revealed that evening, Ellman indicated that this year's total has far surpassed previous campaigns not only in the dollars collected but in numbers of workers and leaders. "The Columbus Jewish community understood the uniqueness of the times in view of the national economy represented by budget cuts and the special needs of Israel struggling for peace and security," Ellman stated. "They responded magnificently," he added. The entire Jewish community is welcome to participate in the celebration at 6 p.m. at the Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center.
