The legislation states that "A member of the Armed Forces may wear an item of religious apparel if... (it is) part of the religious observance of the religious faith practiced by the member." It is sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D. NJ), and has 20 Senate co-sponsors. .Representatives Stephen Solarz (D. NY), Patricia Schroeder (D. Colo.) and Jim Courter (R. NJ) are co-sponsoring it in the House. Last year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Air Force did not have to make an exception to its dress code to allow a Jew, Captain Simcha Goldman, to wear a yarmulke. A 5-4 court majority felt the yarmulke threatened Air Force discipline.

(CONTINUED ON PAGE -1) PARIS, (JTA) - Marek Edelman, a prominent heart surgeon and one of the last survivors of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising, was fired from his position at the Lodz hospital last week and denied a passport to travel abroad, it was reported last week by Le Monde. His wife and family live in France. According to Le Monde, Edelman, 65, was dismissed without explanation. The paper noted that because of the shortage of medical practitioners in Poland, phy- sicians are generally allowed to continue working after retirement age. The paper quoted Edelman as saying he was refused a passport because "it was probably considered that such a visit (to France) would endanger the security of the Polish State." As a young medical student in 1943, Edelman helped organize and then led the ZOB (Zydowska Orga- nizacja Bojowa — Jewish Fighting Organization). He was brie of a handful of Jews who managed to flee the ghetto before it was razed by the Germans, After the war, he completed his medical studies in Poland and worked as a sur geon, chiefly in his native city of Poznan. Although he avoided politics, he became one of the main spiritual leaders of the Solidarity Movement. He was imprisoned in 1981 for his statements in favor of Solidarity 'Oliver!'To Open June 13 In Roth/Resler Theatre Gallery Players of the Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center opens the last show of the season this Saturday evening, June 13, with the musical Oliver!. Based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist, the characters, of this Lionel Bart musical adaptation spring to life as Oliver (played by Stephen Hood) outwits the conniving Fagin(Rick Kesler) and his gang of thieves to reign triumphant in the end. The fun of this play is riches and Fagin his comeuppance, according to Larry Samuels, co-producer. From the time Oliver and the kids in the home sing "Food, Glorious Food" right through the "Oom-Pah-Pah" and "Consider Yourself at Home," the Center's Roth/Resler Theatre vibrates with songs and laughter, Samuels says. Rob Johnson, technical di rector at the Jewish Center, designed the set that will transport theatre goers to Dickens' London of the 1800s. Johnson's set designs include the critically acclaimed A Day in Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine for Gallery Players and the Mikado for Columbus Light Opera. '• Battered women are nothing hew, based on the Dickens character of Nancy (Catherine Fountain), who is so in love with Bill Sikes (Eric Weisheit) that although he beats her unmercifully at times, she continues to love him "As Long As He Needs Me." He stops heeding Nancy when he murders her on London Bridge, Samuels notes. Oliver! runs June 13-28 at the Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center, 1125 College Ave. For show times and ticket information, phone 235-2058.
