The Numbers Mayor Benny Kashriel was elated with one freelance Geneva peace proposal between Labor .i members and Palestinians. The plan calls for Israel to give up east Jerusalem, part of the Negev and all of the disputed territories - except certain West Bank cities such as Maaleh Adumim. "I am going to use this with our prime minister," Kashriel declared, "that even though we are situated in the territories, we are absolutely part of Israel." Kashriel revealed that his town continues to expand, with the current population of 32,000 expected to reach 42,000 in five years. "The prime minister told us to build quietly--not to announce it." The mayor addressed a Bnai Zion dinner in New York at which president Michael Lazar honored insurance broker Harvey Goldfarb. New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, the former Bnai Zion president, said he asked a friend the secret of his 40-year marriage. The friend said that 40 years ago he took his bride on a honeymoon in Chile. They were riding on mules up the mountain. Her mule stumbled and she said, "That's one." The mule stumbled again. "That's two." Again the mule stumbled. "That's three," and she shot the animal. "That's terrible!" the husband reprimanded her. "How can you do such a thing?" "That's one." !i? ~ ii Invited And Indicted If you accept an award from a charitable organization, does that mean your career is about to take a nosedive? To put it another way: do organizations seek the underdog when they dole out their plaques? Consider the evidence. In October the Appeal of Conscience Foundation bestowed its World Statesman Award on Jose Maria Aznar Lopez, president of Spain at a lavish black-tie dinner at the New York Hilton. Aznar acquitted himself admirably in denouncing Islamist terrorism: "I believe that a crime committed in the name of religion is still a crime Terrorism is a crime against civiliza- tion." The Foundation chose also to honor Dr. JosefAckermann, chief executive of Deutsche Bank, Germany's largest bank. No sooner had Ackermann returned to Frankfurt than he was charged with doling out improper bonuses. In September New York Stock Exchange chairman Dick Grasso presided over the awards at the Jewish Community Relations Council at the Plaza. The next day he was vilified for unconscionable greed in his take-home pay. Even after he magnanimously offered to return a few millions, he was forced to retreat from his lofty perch at the Big Board. And then there's Dr.-Samuel Waksal. Before he was in- dicted, he was honored by American Friends of Rabin Medical Center at the Metropolitan Club. With Gov. George Pataki and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak in the room, Waksal boasted that his new cancer drug "is on the verge of being approved." when he got word that it won't happen, he dumped his stocks the day before the public announcement, and now he's behind bars. Is there a lesson that organizations could learn about choosing whom to honor in order to raise funds?

While there, he was playing Capture the Flag with a group of youngsters near a train track. He was running on a trellis when his leg slipped through, his head hit one of the tracks, and he was knocked uncon- scious. The children pulled him off the track in the knick of time. When he awoke, a train had just passed.
