Agency Educational Activities Grow Danny Raskin's
in Size, Scope; 800 Now Participating

The department of education
and c u l t u r e of the Jewish
Agency has neither faculty nor
campus. Yet this summer, some
800 students from high school
juniors to university professors
and from communal workers to
laymen in many walks of life
are participating in educational
programs sponsored by or in
cooperation with this depart-
Its far-flung, informal class-
rooms range from New York
to Los Angeles and from the
hills of Galilee to the shores
of the Red Sea.
"This year, for the first time,
our program runs along the
full length of the academic
ladder," reports Dr. Samuel M.
Blumenfield, head of the De-
partment. There are Is r a el
study tours and seminars for
high school students, college
students, teachers on the ele-
mentary and high school level,
graduate students and univer-
sity lecturers. A considerable
number of non-Jews have join-

UJA Film Wins
Top TV Award

"Face of the Land," a half-
hour television film produced
by the national office of the
United Jewish Appeal for use
in the 1959 campaign, has been
selected among the top 50 docu-
mentaries shown on TV during
the past year, "Variety," the
show business weekly trade

Variety p o 11 e d television
program directors of major TV
stations in all parts of the na-
tion in making its survey. Se-
lections were made from public
service films produced by busi-
ness, industry and community
The film, which was shot on
location in Israel, is narrated by
Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman, ex-
ecutive vice-chairman of the na-
tionwide UJA. Israel's 2,000,000
population, more than half of
whom arrived in the last 10
years as penniless immigrants
from 70 different nations, pro-
vide the cast for this moving
portrayal of a growing nation.
In the course of the film
Rabbi Friedman interviews a
teacher, a hospital director, an
agricultural director, a famed
archaeologist and many others.
Through his conversations with
these typical, yet different Isra•
elis, the viewer gains a warm in-
eight into the young democracy,
of the problems of its people,
their achievements and their
hopes for the future.
Produced by the UJA publici-
ty department, the script was
written and edited by Bernard
Evslin and Paul Kresh, and Rolf
K n el 1 e r, Israeli cameraman,
filmed the story. The film was
technically completed in Holly-
wood with the cooperation of
the Warner Brothers Studios,
with David DePattie serving as
. production supervisor for the
Hollywood company. The proj-
ect was supervised by Raphael
Levy, UJA publicity director.

IT WASN'T TOO long ago
that a musician at a night club
in Brooklyn heard a little
rotund girl singing her heart
out . . . He sent her to see a
personnel manager, who liked
the way she sang but said she
was too fat . • .she'd have to
lose some of her 150 pounds be-
fore he'd handle her. . . Today,
lovely songstress Kathy Keegan
who appeared at the Club Ala-
mo last week, is a petite 95
pounds . . . and the personnel
manager she had gone to see
that day, Tommy Russell, is now
also her husband.
expressions has been quite a
chore for Kathy, what with her
cockney accent, but Tommy
hasn't given up, and the mix-
ture of Yiddish with a deep
English brogue is cute as can
be whenever she is out among
the public.
in niteries around America for
nine months since coming here
only two years ago . . . when
World War II broke out back in
England, she was only seven
years old, but was soon called
"England's Sweetheart" as she
sang in canteens, factories and
hospitals, even while Nazi
planes zoomed overhead . . .
As the years went by, with
Kathy growing older, show busi-
ness had imbedded itself deep-
ly into her blood as she sang in
pubs, at Greyhound and race
tracks and even in boxing rings.
BUT ALL THAT IS past now
. Kathy is fast becoming one
of America's top singing stars,
with a poise and style that
makes her a big hit wherever
she appears . . . In the short
time Kathy has been in Amer-
ica, she has become one of the
country's most wanted song
birds, and will appear on the
George Gobel TV show in Oc-
tober . . . The brilliant future
assuredly ahead for Kathy is a
credit to her determination to
make good.

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Foreign
trade isn't always a matter of
selling wares against payment
in dollars, pounds or other cur-
rency as the Kaiser-Frazer auto-
motive assembly plant in Haifa
proved again this week.
The plant delivered 325
Willys Jeeps, assembled here, to
Haifa for shipment to Co-
lombia. The vehicles were the
first consignment under a con-
tract calling for delivery of
more than 900 jeeps valued at
about $1,500,000.
Colombia will make payment
in the form of coffee — 1,500
tons of it. Israel will barter
1,200 tons of this coffee to an
East European country, receiv-
ing sugar - in exchange.
