$75,873,550 Goal
Set for Israel'
Bond iirive in '60

A quota of $75,873,550 in
State of Israel Bond sales dur-
ing 1960 was adopted last week-
end at the three-day national
planing conference for State of
Israel Bonds meeting in New
York.

More than 450 business and
communal leaders attending the
Conference adopted this goal in
order to bring to $500,000,000
the total of Israel Bond sales
since the drive began in 1951.
The State of Israel Bond cam-
paign raised a total of $52,264,-
000 during 1959 for major
enterprises in the development
of Israel's economy, it was re-
- ported by Dr. Joseph J.
Schwartz, vice president of the
Israel Bond Organization.
The Israel Bond Vice Pres-
ident reported that there were
110,000 purchasers of Israel
Bonds in 1959 as compared with
98,000 in 1958. Since 1951, he
said, the number of Israel Bond
subscribers has passed the
1,000,000 mark.

Dr. Schwartz announced that
the 1960 drive for State . of
Israel Bonds will be formally
launched at the 1960 inaugural
conference for Israel Bonds, in
Miami, Feb. 25 to 28. General
Moshe Dayan, former Chief of
Staff of the Army of Israel
and Minister of Agriculture for
the State of Israel, is coming
to this country to address the
conference.

Prejudice Rise Brings
Warning of Chaplains

LAKEWOOD, N. J. —;..The
Association of Jewish Chaplains
of the Armed Forces warned
that "the outbreak of synagogue
and church desecrations is
further e v i-
dence of t h e
moral laxity of
our times and
threatens t o
undermine ef-
forts on be-
half of world
peace and un-
derstanding."
In a resolu-
tion adopted
here at the
closing session
of its biennial
convention,
t h e associa- Rabbi Silver
tion declared that "coming on
the heels of recent exposures
of TV scandals, payola and
other moral derelictions, the
attacks on houses of worship
are a warning that the free
world needs to pursue a more
dynamic program of moral lead-
ership."
Rabbi Samuel M. Silver, of
Sinai Temple, Stamford, Conn.,
was elected president of the
association, succeeding Rabbi
Alfred J. Kolatch, of Forest
Hills, N. Y.

Israel to Secure
$30,200,000 U.S.

Strictly Confidential

By PHINEAS J. BIRON
Of "Little" Things!
A great hero in Israel, these
days, is Gyula Mandy, the train-
er and coach of Israel's National
Football Team, which just won
the Asian Cup in the Soccer
Tournament in India. . . . Even
Ben-Gurion issued a solemn
message of greetings when the
team returned . . . Ben-Gurion
said: "This has not only been a
victory for Israeli sport . . .
Your skill on the field has shown
the peoples of Asia an example
of the high quality of our peo-
ple, and whether you realize it
or not, you have successfully
and honorably carried out an
international mission of great
value." . . . So there you are!
Helen Reid, the mother of the
U.S. Ambassador to Israel re-
cently visited her son in Israel
and liked the country so much
that she promised to make it a
semi-annual journey.
A few days ago we visited
Martin Rosenbluth, the West-
ern Hemisphere representative
of the Israel Treasury. . . . Dr.
Rosenbluth is recuperating from
a recent illness. . . . A fasci-
nating conversationalist, who
knows more about Zionist his-
tory than any other living
Zionist leader, he told us an
interesting story about Jabotin-
sky. . . . The Revisionist leader
during World War I was .a vis-
itor in Copenhagen. . . . He was
intent on presenting the case
for a Jewish Legion to the local
Zionist Organization. . . . Ger-
man was a forbidden language
and French, Italian, or for that
matter English, which Jabo
spoke fluently, were terra in-
cognita to the Copenhagen Zion-
ist. . L . What to do? . . . Softie-
one suggested that he talk Yid-
dish. ... "Fine," said Jabo, "but
I don't know Yiddish." ... Then
as an afterthought he asked:
"When is the meeting?" . . . He
was told that it would take place
in two weeks. . . . "Well, under
these circumstances," said Jabo-
tinsky, "I shall deliver a three
hour speech in Yiddish." . . .
And that's what he did and,
according to experts, Jabo's
Yiddish was not only intelligi-
ble but of a high literary qual-
ity. . . Rosenbluth has a mil-
lion of these stories and we
hope that some day he finds the
time to write his memoirs. . . .
The other day we attended a
dinner to Ambassador Harman
at the Overseas Press Club in

WASHINGTON, (JTA.)—The
United States Department of
Agriculture signed an agree-
ment with Israel providing $30,-
200,000 in surplus agricultural
commodities. The agreement
was signed by Ambassador
Avraham Harman and Secre-
tary Ezra Taft Benson. The
commodities included $11,200,-
000 wheat or wheat flour, ap-
proximately 6,700,000 bushels;
$9,900,000 feed grains, 7,800,-
000 bushels; $4,200,000 cotton
seed or soy bean oil, 33,000,000
pounds; $800,000 cotton, 6,000
bales; $600,000 rice, 110,000
bags; $200,000 tobacco, 265,000
pounds; $3,300,000 ocean trans-
portation expenses.
Benson commended Israel as
a "dynamic young country" and
said Israel. was one of the
world's leading participants in
the surplus program, having
signed agreements each year
since it was initiated, totaling
$161,000,000. He said he had a
great personal interest in
Israel's successful development Plan Three-Day Institute

The Miami parley will also

Dr. David Horowitz, Gover-
nor of the Bank of Israel,
pointed out that during the
past decade Israel had res-
cued more than a million
Jews and that today Israel -
stands as "a promise of res-
cue and salvation, a living
monument to those Jews
who gave their lives as Jews
and at the same time as a
great chance of survival and
renaissance in , the future."

New York. . . . The affair was
so successful that some of the
people had to eat standing. .
The pressmen for more than an
hour plied him with queries....
The Israeli Ambassador, in top
form, was at his best. . . . When
he got through, the reporters
agreed that Eban could not have
improved on the perfothance.
. . . Harman was direct, forth-
right, witty and convincing. . • .
The excitement about the "in-
ternational anti - Semitism" is
dying out because, to judge
from the culprits arrested in
New York, the youngsters in-
volved are unattached delin-
quents who belong to no orga-
nization whatsoever. . . . The
same kind of morons have been
busy in Australia and in Italy.
