ITH the Sherlock Holmes movie playing across the country, Israelís consul general in New York, Asaf Shariv, related a tale about the famous sleuth. Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson, went on a camping trip. They woke up in the middle of the night.

"Dr. Watson, what do you?"

"Stars, millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

"That God is omnipresent. His majesty is everywhere. What does that tell you, Mr. Holmes?"

"It tells me that someone has stolen our tent!"

That cracked up all the insurance people who came to an Israel Bonds luncheon at the St. Regis in Manhattan where they honored two of their own: Pennsylvania insurance commissioner Joel Ario and veteran New York insurance lawyer and arbitrator Donald T. DeCarlo.
