It begins with a rare opportunity to meet and hear one of the outstanding scientific and humanistic minds of our era--Dr. Edward Teller, who helped unveil the nuclear age with a handful of other physicists at the University of Chicago's "Manhattan Project" back during 1942-43. Dr. Teller is coming here on behalf of the Technion-lsrael Institute of Technology, and the American Technion Society. In case you're a little fuzzy on just what Technion is all about, its recent accomplishments would probably make your head THE POUTICAL SCENE spin in amazement and pride for the Jewish university that has brought the world so much super- brain-power and technology. We have provided but a capsule story of the Technion on pages 6-7. Come to hear Dr. Teller Sunday morning at Temple Israel and you'll feel a bit more secure in the knowledge that Jewish science, Jewish knowledge, and Jewish inventiveness gives so much to the world. Newcomers tothe area get a treat about the time Dr. Teller ends his talk, when the bi-monthly "Shalom Orlando" gets underway at the Jewish Community Center. About 75 newly arrived Jewish residents get together at these brunches to " learn all about the activities available to them, to meet other newcomers and to find out who knows whom from the hometown up North. At 2 p.m., also at the Center, is the'first "big game" of the softball league--the first-half championship between a new organization in town--Jewish Businesmen's Benevolent Associa- tion-and the JCC Softballers. The JBBA hasn't lost a game yet but the JCC squad isn't ready to give in. They've only lost once, and one run. So it should be quite a special cheering sections and all..

ADL Research Chief Warns Orlando Candidates Criticize UN Vote Soviets Pose More Sedous Threat Than The Carter administration's another example of vacil- voting fiasco in the UN Secur- ity Council has drawn criticism from several presidential con- tenders, with the strongest coming from Sen. Edward Kennedy, calling it a "blunder of enormously significant proportions." "The vote was wrong in the first place," he told CBS-TV's Face the Nation, "and the decision-making process raises sedous questions about the whole formulation of American foreign policy." Rep. John Anderson called the vote flap "an incredible blunder of the worst magnitude." George Bush was also strong in his criticism saying, "Here is another example of the Carter administration bullying our friends and lation." A poll taken by Jewish Livin 9 prior to the UN vote flap, of 2000 Jewish voters all over the United States noted that Pres. Carter still held on to a 26. ] % preference but Repub- lican George Bush was close behind at 25.2%. Anderson was at 16.1%, Kennedy (D) 14.6%, Reagen (R) 6.2%. Closer to home, there may be some new entrants in the race for Congressman Richard Kelly's (R) seat. Kelly has not announced for reelection, being in the midst of the Abscam investigation, but Atty. Bill McCollum of Alta- monte Springs, who has said he's running, may have other opposition. There are three Democrats also seeking the 5th Congressional seat.

Bakst believes that there are roughly 75 billion dollars, mostly Saudi money, invested in the U.S. though the Ameri- can government has "played footsie with them," granting the Arabs a certain anonymity so that private citizens can only guess at the scope of Arab investments, both direct JEROME BAKST and indirect.
