Shaarey Zedek Youth Repeat
`South Pacific' Wednesday

Gentlemen
of the Press

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

iME • DETROIT JEWISH

Congregation Shaarey Zedek youth have won such wide
acclaim for their Hebraized version of "South Pacific" that
they have been asked to present the musical comedy --- which
they have adapted entirely in Hebrew — as a repeat perform-
ance. The musical will be staged again in the Shaarey Zedek
social hall, next Wednesday, 8:30 p.m. This will be the musi-
cal's final performance here. Its presentation next Wednesday
is being sponsored by the Sisterhood of Shaarey Zedek. The
entire community is invited, admission being free. Miss Helen
Shur is the play's director. The performers are associated with
the Leaders Training Fellowship Group. Leads in the Hebrew
version of the Rogers Hammerstein musical are taken by the
following, shown in the photo from the left: Michael Stulberg,
Jan Berris, Mitchell Shur, Merle Weston, Stanley Rosenbaum,
Marsha Taylor and Marty Makell.

Annual Convention of JWV Posts,
Auxiliaries to Honor Shaikewitz

One of the striking resem-
blances between America and
Israel is the way both take to
newspapers. Jefferson helped
launch two papers. His great
opponent, Hamilton, founded
the New York Post. In the set-
tlement of the West, the first
thing, it seems, one did after
reaching some far-away place
was to run for Congress or start
a newspaper.
Israel seems to be much the
same way. Tel Aviv seems to
have more daily papers than
any city in the world. There are
some fifteen or twenty dailies
and, I understand, they would
start more but they have run
out of names.
Jefferson thought the press
was more important than the
government, and that, I think,
explains the reason for the
strength of the press in Amer-
ica and Israel. Both go in for
democracy-deluxe.
