It consists Of four separate groups of figurines, molded on a glass base made of lime-soda glass, manufactured from sand mined in the Negev. The figurines are in pyrex glass. The central motif of the array, which shows a remarkable attention to pictorial detail, is "the spirit of the times." The luttman brothers say that they wanted to show how like martial valor of the Maccabees has inspired every subsequent generation of the Jewish people throughout theworld, especially in recent times. Consequently the figurines are clad in apparel relating to different epochs of the past Jewish history. Male and female alike, they hold a weapon--spear, scimitar, broadsword or mace--- in one hand, in the other a candleholder. The single figure is the shomer, the candle which lights the o!h ers. Repatriated Polish Jews Washington--The Kremlin has notified Poland that the Soviet Government would consider it an unfriendly act if Polish exit per- mits were granted to recent Jew- ish returnees from the Soviet Union. Arab Governments had asked Moscow to stop the flow of Jews from Poland to Israel. Most Polish Jews living in Po- land when the Gomulka regime took over have already emi- grated. The desperate cases today are those of the estimated 10,000 Jews repatriated froh the Soviet: Union in the last year. They ar- rived penniless. Today those awaiting exit permits for Israel may be assisted to some extent by the Joint Distribution Com- mittee and ORT. Of the Jews who arrived in Poland from Soviet territory, about 78 per cent came from the Vilna area and an estimated 10 per cent from Lwow. Some of the children of returnees do not know a word of Yiddish or He- brew. A number of spouses are non-Jews. Gomulka has indicated that he -viii let the "Joint" aid Jewish children in the sphere of culture and education. Professional train- ing by Ort is being planned. But the threadbare unfortunates ar- riving from Russia hope their stay in Poland is only transient, having set their hearts on Is- rael. Jews who remained in Poland after World War II seem to have fared better economically than those who found themselves in Russia. Some Polish Jews arrived News Briefs VIENNA (JTA)--The forma- tion of a Central Jewish Relief Committee in Poland, which will distribute funds to be received ,from the Joint Distribution Com- mittee, was announced in War- saw. The committee would concen- trate primarily on reconstructive aid for Jews repatriated from the Soviet Union and would help them in settling in their homes and in securing work. Children attending the Jewish schools will be fed in the schools and adults desiring to learn a trade will be given the opportunity to do so. Aid will also be given to aged and sick. , JERUSALfM:*Prominent states- men, o f f i c i a 1 s and' journalists from Asian and African countries have been conspicuous among re- cent visitors to Israel. A minister from Western Nigeria, a former minister from Laos, parliament- arians from India, and trade un- ion leaders from Ghana and Bur- ma, toured the country and s t u d i e d its institutions.

Scicntists of this al-ea, working together in a broth- erly spirit, may well provide the pillars'for th, peaceful extension of this intercontinental bridge." Israel Ambassador Abba Eban, in acknowledging Mr. Rubin's gift, stressed the importance of peace in the Middle East in the light of recent world political de- velopments.
