19, 1848 THE ntllNETjANDER (W1S.) DAILY NEWS PACE II Ship Reaches U. S. With 70 Refugees From Palestine By DAVID S. BOYER NEA Staff Correspondent ABOARD THE "MARINE CARP" WITH JERUSALEM REFUGEES(NEA)— This is the "Wfong'Way Exodus." Its ending in New York harbor makes the "Marine Carp" the first refugee ship going backwards—the first one carrying Palestine Jews B.way from Palestine. To the more than 70 American Jews from Jerusalem on board, the terrors of the siege of the Holy City are still vivid. To them, America is the Promised Land. Palestine has had it, at least for now. Some of them plan 'to return. But not until peace in Jerusalem is a permanent fact, These Americans, mostly women and children, old men and orthodox Jews who don't fight, evidenced mixed emotions during the rough boat ride from the pier to the ship. 1\ was difficult to tell whether they cried because they, were going to America, Because they Were leaving husbands and fathers in Jerusalem, or simply because they Were leaving Palestine. It was difficult even to tell which Were tears, and which were drops of salt spray from the fast-running sea. It was difficult to tell, after talking to a half-dozen of the refugees, that they had had enough of Jerusalem. One woman pointed to burns on her hands. "Those are from trying to cook over an outdoor fire,"- she said, wincing in recollection of the pain. "I wouldn't have minded if there'd been anything worth cooking.-My kids are both in bad shape from lack of food, and from the shelling." . American Jews of fighting age were kept in Jerusalem. "We hope to get them out," a Chicago woman confided. One 22-year-ol^i American boy, looking like a 4-H Club health contest winner in this pathetic cluster of emaciated refugees, said he'd been in'the Jewish army, had-received better food than the civilians. How did he get permission to acave the Holy City? "A military secret, my friend! A military secret!" The refugees left Jerusalem under arrangements of the American consul. Jewish trucks brought them to Haifa. For two days before sailing -time, their lives were routines of eating, sleeping, then eating again. "I didn't know a plate of food could mean so much," one woman commented as she munched a chocolate bar, "or a fifty-dollar bill so little! If I could only send a few New Faw« For An OI^Nanao Make Vanity Your "Buy" Word For B«tter r Foods! steaks back le the ones who are still there!" Most of the Americans thought woftiefi and children should be evacuated from Jtwish Jerusalem before any new fighting begins there again. "It would foe easier to take the people out than the food in," an orthodox Jew in skull cap and long curls suggested. "Only the army should be left in the city." Most Jewish Palestinians disagree violently with any evacuation scheme. Some have only emotional reasons for believing Jerusalemites should sweat out a new siege. "Jerusalem is the birthplace of our nation," they Say. f'tf we evacuate Jerusalem, we might as well evacuate Palestine. The Women and children must stay. The women arid children are the Jewish state." Others, notably army officers, have more practical reasons. "The women and children didn't leave Stalingrad. They stayed to fight for their homes. If they didn't actually fight, they inspired their husbands and fathers and brothers to fight. And they cooked, and built road blocks, and cared for the wounded. You can't leave only a few civilians. To hold a city, you need everbody. jBveryone, no matter how weak or how small plays his part." Seme Jerusalemites who have obtained permission to come to Haifa or Tel Aviv on temporary business, have a theory of their own. They agree that the civilians should stay. But not the same civilians. The population should be exch.^ged. The second team should be sent in. To do that would be about as easy as having everyone in the east bleachers exchange with everyone across the field before the umpire blows his whistle. We must insist that reconstruction of western Europe be as a whole. That must include the restoration of the productivity of Germany, or Europe will die.—Herbert Hoover. 'Lady Frank Buck' Leaves Typing For Wild Animals NEW YORK -(NfcA)- python- by*the*pound is no sale for Genevieve Cuprys, who knows a reptilian bargain when she sees it. Miss Cuprys has traveled far and wide to find bargains for the zoo- supply company she represents. At 23, Gettevieve claims that shopping for anything from anteaters to zebras is far 'more interesting than the secretarial job she left last January. The python deal came up when she was shopping in Singapore? A wild animal merchant thought he could make a fat profit by'feeding the snake a whole pig before the weighing-in. But this didn't even add an inch to its length, and Genevieve wouldn't go through with the sale. She's the only woman wild animal collector in the business and has just returned from a "shopping spree" with a cargo of 35 pythons bougjht by the foot. Unpacking them at a New York pier, Gencvieve acted as head man, packing the snakes' heads away in crates while her employer and two perspiring assistants struggled with the writhing hind quarters. "These babies are so strong," observed Henry Trefflich, her boss, "that they can circle a cow, crush its bones and stretch it out like a ,bologna until it fits into their mouths." Unpertured, Genevieve casually went about her business. Adopted daughter of the late Arthur Foehl, widely known animal dealer, Genevieve went along on trips with her father to Africa and India.

It was her first try and she came through In fine style. When she returned, she brought back babsofls, gibbons, a Gibraltar ape, monkeys, rare birds ahd a Malayan sun bear. Her .prize catch, however, Was Bali, a baby orangutan with the face and manners of a philosophic old man—the second one of its kind brought back to America in 10 years. • Her first expedition also had a dpuble*tragedy. Gettevieve had picked up two very rare Pangolin (scaly) anteaters, which her father had tried 27 years to find. "for three days 1 picked ticks out from under their scales," she recalled. "Then one died from the terrible Singapore heat, although 1 kept pouring buckets of water on all the animals. During a storm at sea, the other one—they're power* ful animals—broke four spikes in its box and got out. I slid around the wet deek and crawled oyer rubber cargo all night. It mst have jumped overboard." "Just like $5,000 jumping over- CALL 33 BIG BERTHA WRECKER board!" Trefflich observed glumly. "But she's terrific anyhow; has lots of guts. A real lady Ffahk Buck!"
