Feinberg's Gift of Scouting Books
Memorializes Late Fred M. Burzel




We rejoice in the lessons of the Feast of

Lights and in the inspirations that come

to us from the courage we have inherited

from the Hanukah festival. May these

As a tribute to the late Fred M. Butzel, prominent attorney,
civic leader and a charter member of the Detroit Area Council
when organized in 1910, copies of the new "Golden Book of
Scouting" are being planned in various public libraries of the
metropolitan Detroit area. An initial gift of 200 books was
made possible through the interest of oil company executive
Charles E. Feinberg (right), nationally known for his library
contributions to colleges and universities. First editions of the
new book, depicting the 50-year history of Scouting in America,
and beautifully illustrated in color, were presented by the
former State Supreme Court Justice Henry M. Butzel (left) to
Detroit's Library Director Ralph A. Ulveling (second from left)
and Walter H. Kaiser, Wayne County librarian.

In Jewish homes throughout the world, during this happy
week of Hanukah, the Dreidel is a symbol of our rejoicing
over the great Maccabaean victory which saved the Jewish
people 2,100 years ago. The Dreidel is an instrument for a
game, but its theme is Nes Gadal Haya Sham — a Great
Miracle Was Performed There. It was a miracle that saved
the idea of Monotheism and destroyed the threat of paganism.
This Dreidel is the signalizer of renewed faith in the survival
of humanitarianism in our day. Therefore the festival of
Hanukah, symbolized by a toy that has become part of our
observance of the great festival, assumes growing significance
in our time. We rejoice in the miracle of old as part of the
triumph of Jewish survival throughout the ages, and in its
spirit we extend best wishes for

a Wappy

Wanuhah, to all
