More than 3,000 Jewish or-
ganizational leaders in over 50
local communities across the
country were warned that "the
tempo of giving to the United
Jewish Appeal must be acceler-
ated" if American Jewry is to
meet its "great emergency ob-
ligations abroad."
This caution, coupled with
the need to "maintain expan-
sion of American Jewry's corn-
munity institutions," was voiced
by Philip M. Klutznick, chair-
man of the Conference of Presi-
dents for the 1959 UJA Cam-
paign, addressing key local or-
ganizational leaders over a half-
hour telephone hookup.
The unique person-to-person
conference originated at a
luncheon meeting of the Confer-
ence of Presidents in the na-
tional' headquarters of the
United Jewish Appeal in New
York.
"Klutznick, who Chaired the
session, was joined by three
other speakers — Dr. Nahum
Goldmann, chairman of the Jew-
ish Agency; Rabbi Herbert A.
Friedman, UJA executive vice-
chairman, and Gershon Avner,
in charge of the American desk
at the Israel Ministry of For-
eign Affairs. Also present at the
gathering were the presidents
of 18 major national Jewish
organizations participating in
the program of the Conference
of Presidents.

Urging his hearers to enlist
their organizations for all-out
support of local drives in be-
half of UJA, Blutznick, -who
is also • president of Bnai
Brith, gave special emphasis
to his statement that "the
obligation to help meet the
humanitarian needs of Is-
rael's people is a solemn obli-
gation of the whole of Ameri-
can Jewry."
Dr. Goldman declared that

the needs of Israel's people
must be appraised not alone on
the basis of immigrants "yet to
arrive in Israel," but, even
more, on the basis of immi-
grants already there—"close to
a million, from many lands, ad-
mitted since 1948."
The resettlement of nearly a
million people, Dr. Goldmann
declared, is a "stupendous task,
one that would tax the energies
and resources even of old and
established governments." Since
Jews throughout the world have
"by no means". contributed the
funds necessary for this pur-
pose, the speaker held, it must
now make up for its past defi-
cits by extra - generous giving
today.
In Detroit, meanwhile, the Al-
lied Jewish Campaign, which
provides the funds for UJA
from Detroit's contributions to
the overall drive for more than
50 local, national and overseas
causes, went into high gear with
more than $4,200,000 already re-
ported raised. Last year, the to-
