Project. The Governor stated:
"The dominating impression I
came home with was that the
people in Israel were determined
to build a new life. This was
evident at every step, and I
heard it from the top—Sharett
and Ben-Gurion — down the
line." .
Governor Williams also made
the comment that "it is not true
that • the Arab countries are
backward," and he poirited to
Beirut as an example of another
center that "is exceedingly pros-
perous."
He _made special. reference to
the plans that. are being made
by the JNF of Detrbit for the
planting of the Williarns-Hart.
Forest in Israel and to the pri-
vilege he had of presenting to
the Hebrew University the col-
lectirm of Whitmania provided
by Charles E. Feinberg, • of • De-
troit. •
Samuel H. Rubiner, president
of the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion, introduced the Governor.
In preliminary remarks, Mr.
Rubiner echoed the general feel-
ing at the meeting when he said
"we shall not be content until
every prospect has been con-
tacted." Outlining the objectives
of the. Federation he said that
"today's concept of w e l fa r e
touches every one in the com-
munity—that is why We cam-
paign priniarily for the educa-
tional features of the drive, for
high moral ideas, for the human
values which flow out of this co-
operative endeavor."
Mr. Rubiner presented a cita-
tion to Mr. Lurie, the campaign
chairman, from the Federation,
in recognition of his campaign
efforts. •
