IM MAKE THE DESERT BLOOM

What makes a soil produce—a barren,

long-neglected soil, short of minerals,
short of water?

Answers—a man—one who wants to see
It grow again, who is ready to workiong
and hard until the brown earth turns green
with the foodstuffs of life.

The story of modern Israel is the story of
thousands who dreamed of a green land.
Include in it pioneers who drained age-
old swamps and cleared two thousand years
of stones from fields that now feed a nation.
Include, too, thousands of new farmers
among the one million immigrants you
helped to bring to Israel through the United
Jewish Appeal. More than 130,000 of them
—immigrant farmers and their families—live
911 tin till Uttiairtii you helped to

-

establish throughout the land since 1948.
With the aid of its new farmers, Israel
now produces more than 70 percent of its
own food supply—plus millions of dollars of
commercial agricultural crops: citrus, cot-
ton, peanuts and others.

Yet, strange as it may seem, practically
none of these new farmers has achieved
self-sufficiency! To do so, thousands need
additional farm machinery. Others need
more water, farm animals or power. -

You can help these determined immigrant
farmers win their battle. You can see them
through to victory.
Give a generous gift to this year's regular
UJA. Then give a great additional gift to
the UJA SPECIAL FUND to meet unmet
immigrant needs —Today.
