Vivacious Israeli Discus Thrower
Named to Detroit Habonim Post

Perhaps with a touch of fore-
thought, a Russian couple who
immigrated to Israel 35 years
ago gave their daughter the
Hebrew name Atara, or Crown.
Since that time, 26-year-old
Atara Polonsky, who recently
arrived here as a "shliach" for
Habonim, has won countless
prizes for her outstanding par-
ticipation in athletic competi-
tions in Israel.
Atara, a native of Moshav
Kfar Hayim, who will spend
two years in Detroit as a Hab-
onim workshop organizer, has
broken two records in shotball
and discus and has copped
,other -awards in javelin, track
and field.

she received a degree in his-
tory this year, Atara found
time to top the women's shot-
put throw at 10:13 meters,
and later at 10:17. Still cham-
pion discus thrower for the
Poalia sports movement, she
broke the record at 3'7 meters.
Other of her awards include
several _received in the Maccab-
iad and the international Stu-
dent Olympics.
Asa commander in the Israeli
army, Atara also received a
medal for her performance in
track and field competitions.
During that time, she was asked
to participate in the interna-
tional Olympics. However, be-
cause of her required two years
in the service, Atara was unable
to join the Israeli team.
While she hopes to receive
her masters' degree here in ed-

The number of professional

athlete must pay for his own
trip expenses.

Many Values in
Cookbook of Gen.
Foods Kitchens

"The General Foods Kitchens
Cookbook" is not a kosher cook-
book. This volume of large dim-
ensions, with a thousand recipes
—to be issued shortly by Ran-
dom House—nevertheless has so
many qualities, and there are
so many recipes that can be
used in accordarice with the
traditional Jewish dietary laws,
that it deserves the attention
of our readers.
There are many values in this
large book. Prepared by the
women of General Foods kit-
chens, there is a wealth of ad-
vice in it for homemakers.
In planning and preparing
meals, in the arrangement of
parties, this book serves as an
excellent guide. The interest-
ing approaches to the various
kitchen needs are indicated at
the outset in the discussion of
"Family Meals":
"Once upon a time, the lady

The music of Dick Stein will
be featured at the fifteenth
annual Yom Kippur Night
Dance sponsored by the Bnai
Brith Youth Organization of
Greater Detroit.
An innovation at this year's
dance will be two distinct types
of music offered in two dif-
ferent rooms. Regular music,
slow and jitterbug, will be pre-
sented in one, and Latin Ameri-
can music in the other.
Another unique feature will
be a male fashion show.
Tickets for the affair, to be
held at 8:30 p.m., Monday, at
the Holiday Manor, can be ob-
tained from BBYO, AZA, or
BBG member or the BBYO
office, 15722 W. 7 Mile Rd., or
at the door.
Information may be obtained
by calling Terry Bernstein, UN
4-6068, or BBYO assistant
director Tzvi Berkal, VE 8-4487.

of the house, complimenting
her cook on an exceptionally
fine dinner, remarked that
the cook's job was a hard
one. The cook's classic reply:
`It ain't that it's so hard,
it's just that it's so daily!'
"Nowadays, when the 'cook'
is also housemaid, chamber-
maid, waitress, nurse, gar-
dener, chauffeur—as well as
wife, mother, job-holder, and
community leader—the `dai/i-
ness' of food preparation is
more challenging than ever."


Beth El's Young Adults
to Hold 1st Dance Oct: 18


Leonard Stanley will provide
the music for the Young Ad-
ult Group of Temple Beth
El's first dance of the season
at 8 p.m., Oct. 18, in Frank-
lin Memorial Hall.
Refreshments will be served.
Everyone is invited.

With tips for special situa-
tions and suggestions for dinner
preparations for many.occasions,
the scores of recipes assume
added value.
Interestingly enough, the au-
thors of this fine book found
it important to include a special
section on "How to Feed - a
Crowd." Their suggestions and
detailed plans for large parties
will solve many problems for
many people.
These are a few of the many
values inherent in "The Gen-
eral Kitchens Cookbook" whose
contents are enlivened by photo-
graphs by George Lazarnick and
drawings by Mary Ronin.
