I Communal Leaders Join in Honoring Winners

Workers' Federation

Translation of Hebrew Column
Published by Brit Ivrit Olamit

More than 200 people gath-
ered at dinner Wednesday in
the St. Cyprian Protestant
Episcopal Church, Milford and
29th St., to award citations, in
recognition of their communal
services to three Detroiters-
Judge Arthur F. Lederle of the
U. S. District Court, Philip
Slomovitz and Miss Nellie
Watts.
Participating in the program
were Ramon S. Scruggs, of the
public relations department of
the Michigan Bell Telephone
Co., who was toastmaster; Otis
Bannister, James Saunders,
Irene Graves, and Charles
Wartman, editor of the Michi-
gan Chronicle, who presented
the award to Slomovitz.
The musical program was
provided by Michael Reid and

Dr. Frederick B. Routh, new

them!
—The elections in the "His-

matter.—I replied.
—Important? To the entire
country? That is what I do not
understand.
—The number of members
in the Histadrut today is over
640,000. Together with their
families they are a majority of
the inhabitants of the State. A
matter which is important to a
majority of the inhabitants is
important to the entire coun-

Zionist Party in Israel in inter-
nal Israeli matters.
"If the ZOA genuine desires
to make a departure from its
past performance, then let it
follow the suggestion made in
Jerusalem by one of its own
outstanding leaders and officers,
Abraham Goodman, that the
ZOA leave the General Zionist
Confederation, in which the
General Zionist ,party in Israel
is the central factor, and join
the recently re-organized World
Confederation of General Zion-
ists—completely Diaspora-based
—and thus sever, clearly and
fully, its involvements and ties
with the General Zionist party
in Israel. On this basis there
would be room for the discus-
sion proposed by Redelheim."
Shapiro announced that the
League has convoked a meeting
of its board of directors, to take
place Sunday in New York. On
that occasion, an address will
be delivered by Louis Lipsky,
honorary president of the
League.
Judge Louis E. Levinthal,
ho..orary president of t h e
League, member of the execu-
tive of the World Confederation
and member of the 19-man con-
stitution committee of the
World Zionist Organization, will
analyze the constitutional re-
visions now under considera-
tion.
