Nine years ago, the League of
Jewish Women's Organizations
created a fund in memory of one
of its early presidents, Mildred
Simons Rosenberg. Since that
time, the Mildred Simons Ro-
senberg Awards have become
synonymous, with youth leader-
ship in the Detroit community.
At the annual meeting of the
League last Monday evening, in
the Esther Berman Bldg., five
young people were selected for
honors, three young men and
two young ladies.
Harold Sheldon Barron, pres-
ently a pre-law student at the
University of Michigan, was
chosen to win the silver kiddush
cup, symbol of men's leadership,
and Sarah Graf Weiner, a senior
at Royal Oak High. School, and
Faith Greenbaum, a Wayne Uni-
versity student, each received
silver menorahs for women's
leadership.
So close did the judges feel
were the qualifications of two
other young men that they
awarded honorable mentions to
Merwin Singer Goldsmith and
Richard Gould.
Mrs. Irving Small, retiring
president of the League, who
presided, turned the award cere-
mony over to Mrs. Henry Green,
chairman of the youth award
program for the past three
years. Each recipient received a
citation.

Harold, 18, is the son of 1'
and Mrs. George L. Barron, of
18633 Monica. He was chosen

• 1947-51, playing on a sandlot
baseball team which won a
playground championship and
graduating sixth in a class . of
417 at Mumford High School.
At his graduation in 1954,
Harold received a junior Phi

In 1952, Faith played the viola

at Bnai Moshe, and is now vice-
president of the Bnai Moshe Ju-
nior Congregation Before trans-
ferring to Wayne University, she
was a student leader of Hillel
Foundation, University of Mich-
igan.
Merwin, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Max Goldsmith, of 18924 Pen-
nington, and Richard, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Arthur I. Gould, of
18487 San Juan, are both • 17 and
will graduate in June from
Mumford High School.
Both young men have had su-
perior scholastic grades. Merwin
has been active in activities at
Adas Shalom Synagogue where
he served as cantor of the Juni-
or Congregation, and Richard
has been president of the Tern-
ple Israel Youth Group.
The original funds for the
awards this year having been
exhausted, the Simons family
donated the sums necessary to
continue the award in Mrs.
senberg's memory.
Serving on the judging com-
mittee were Mrs. Maurice Klein,
a past president of the League;
Leonard Kasle, newly-elected
member of the Detroit Board of
Education; Frank Simons, city
editor, Detroit Jewish News;
