Goldmann has denied reports that such a meeting, - has been set up but added that if he received an invitation from Arafat he would accept it. Heboid one interviewer that he had once said to- Israeli Premier Menachem Begin that, having resigned as president of 'the WJC, "I am a private person and I can meet whoever I want to meet." He said that "of course, I shall report to Begin both before the meeting and afterwards." He said that in principle, he opposes Israel's position of not talking to the PLO. He said ithe met with Arafat,-Jie would tell him that the PLO "should cease from' terror and recognize Israel in the borders which will be deter- " mined in an agreement on an overall peace."

Staub Special Care Pavilion" at Heritage House. Pavilion Named For Staubs New Soviet Law Could Make Emigration More Difficult The new Soviet citizenship law which came into force on July 1,1979 could be used for restricting emigration. This is the conclusion Which emerges from an analysis of the new law. made by Dr. S. J. Roth, Director of the Institute of Jewish Affairs, the London- based research arm of the World Jewish Congress, and. published as a Research Report. Of all the Soviet citizens who' emigrate, only Jews emigrating to Israel are forced arbitrarily" to renounce their citizenship; the new law may make this more difficult than ever. It declares that "unfulfilled commitments to the state" can be used as a reason for refusing the renunciation of citizenship, a provision' which, the IJA report says, "offers unlimited opportunities for restrictive policies and bureaucratic* chican-, ery." Prior to the new law, refusal of the right to leave the USSR has always been justi^ fied by the Soviet authorities on'the basis of protecting- "national security," "public order" or a related reason. The Report points out that (CONTINUED ON PAGE IS) Sylvia C. Schecter, President of Heritage House, announced that in appreciation for and recognition of the outstanding generosity ' of Martha G. and Milton Staub, the Board of Trustees has. named the proposed Maximum Care section of the Home the "Martha G. Staub Special Care Pavilion." Extensive remodelling of the existing p Wing in the original' Heritage" House ' building to create the Martha G. Staub Special Care Pavilion wijl take place, this fall. Upon completion, the Pavilion will provide the best possible physical set-- ting lor jmeeting the needs of those short term post hospital-arid long term care Residents who require maximum nursing service, rehabilitative therapy and the specialized therapies for the mentally impaired. "The Special Care Pavilion has been the major priority of the Capital Needs, Development Program of Heritage House," stated Mrs. Schecter, "and now with the contribution of $150,000 from our devoted friends, Martha and Milton Staub, in addition to. other < donations, this most import- - ant community need- will soon become a reality." Martha and Milton Staub have been deeply involved in the operation of Heritage House for many years. Martha has been most active in the Heritage House Auxiliary, including the opening of the successful Gift Gallery. Milton has been a longtime member of the Heri- •tage House-.IJoard of Trustees, having served as both Vice President and-Chairman of the Building and'Ex-' pahsioh Committee. Under his capable leadership, the Building Committee implemented the design and construction of the Eleanor and Jack Resler Wing. According to Gerald N. 'Cohn, Executive Vice President of Heritage House, the construction plans for the Special Care Pavilion were (CONTINUED ON PAGE'16) WASHINGTON- (WNS)- The Carter Administration announced that it had dropped a plan to introduce a resolution on Palestinian rights in the United Nations Security Council and would veto a resolution proposed by the Arabs and their supporters. Robert Strauss, President Carter's special ambassador for Middle East negotiations,' said Aug. 22 that Carter approved this proposal following a recommendation made to him by Strauss, Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Vice President Walter Mondale and National Security Advisor Zbig- niew - Brzezinski. The four met at the White House Aug. 22 ahd forwarded the resolution to the President1 who was sailing from the Mississippi River aboard the Delta Queen. The meeting was held after Straus returned from the Mideast and reported that both Israeli Premier Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has rejected the United , States-' proposal. Strauss reportedly opposed -the resolution and felt it was • given to him just as he departed for the Mideast so} that', he would have no chance to argue the point with the President. The Bill Provides Tax Incentives For Energy-saving Alternatives Governor Rhodes_ signed an emergency piece of legi- lation last week designed to encourage both the individual and the corporate sectors of the state of Ohio to invest in solar, wind or hydrotlier- mal energy systems, an-' nounced Ohio Tax.Commissioner Edgar L. Lindley' today. '' Am. Sub. H.B. 154 provides tax incentives on the cbsts.of materials and installation of those above mentioned energy-saving alternatives purchased through Dec. 31, 1985,.he added. As an-emergency measure, the bill became effective the day it was signed, Aug. 14,1979. Commissioner Lindley •cited "rising fuel costs" as a' prime target for this legislation. "It will contribute to the' conservation of fossil fuels," he said. "The tax in- ' centives are intended to induce tax payers and contractors alike to build facilities »with those systems that will conserve^energy and result in operational savings,". Lindley added. The tax incentives consist of tax exemptions from the real estate and sales1 taxes, and tax credits are provided for the corporate franchise and personal income taxes. The bill states that the Director of the Dept. of Energy will establish guidelines for identifying solar, wind and hydrothermal energy sys- . terns and . components thereof. The Energy Dept's rules will determine the eli-> gibility of the systems for the tax exemptions and' credits, Lindley sajd. For this reason, until those rules are pro-,' mulgated by the Energy Dept., it will be necessary that sales tax be collected and paid on all retail sales of such systems. If the equip^ ment is later determined to be qualified for exemption, the Ohio Dept. of .Taxation .will refund sales/use tax paid on qualifying purchases made after Aug. 14,1979. White House meeting- also seemed to put to rest a dispute within the Administration as to who was in charge of Mideast policy. Strauss was reported as believing it was his responsibility, with consultation as necessary with • the President and Vance. But after the White House meeting Aug. 21, Vance said that it always has and will continue to be the responsibility of the Secretary of State. "Bob (Strauss) is in charge of the peace negotiations." But then White House Press Secretary Jody Powell later, aboard the Delta Queen! said Carter lefti Mondale in charge. Powell * later amended this to say that Mondale is in charge of the White Hpuse meeting in the President's absence. i Meanwhile, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.approved a resolution for the Security Council which declared the "Palestinian people should be able to exercise its inr alienable rights of self-determination, national independence and 'sovereignty in Palestine." Nigeria , introduced the'resolution in the Security Council. It also called for allowing Palestinian refugees to "return to their homes" or ."receive (CONTINUED TO'PAGE 15) " Fundraising Committees Work For New Jewish Center Building Several Columbus Jewish leaders are serving on the Overall Campaign Planning Committee for The New Jewish Center, along with' David Roth, Chairman or the Capital Campaign.
