New JTA Circuit
.to Speed News

NEW YORK, (JT2-1) — The
Jewish T e 1 e g r aphic Agency
opened a new facsimile circuit
between its United Nations of-
fice and its New York head-
quarters to speed transmission
of news copy from the United
Nations to JTA client newspa-
pers throughout the world.
The facsimile circuit will feed
the news to the JTA editorial
department for use locally and
for radioprinter relay to other
parts of the world with such
speed that it will be possible,
during the critical afternoon op-
erating hours, to have a JTA
story in Tel Aviv within five
minutes of its completion by
the correspondent.
Two representatives of the
Newspaper Publishers Associa-
tion of Israel, Pinhas Leibo-
vitz, its secretary-general; and
Yehiel Eliash, director-general
of the Israel daily newspaper,
Hatzofe, visited the JTA head-
quarters to witness the start of
the new service. Both are in the
United States as delegates to
the 13th annual congress of the
International Federation of
Newspaper Publishers.

the two visiting publishers that
he plans to be in Israel next
November.

ization.
Lipsky's novels, drawn in
large part from his legal back-
ground, have been made into
successful motion pictures. His
last novel, "The Scientists," was
a selection of the Book of the
Month Club. His novels have
been translated into nine lan-
guages, including Hebrew. They
contain strong elements of Zion-
ist and Jewish influence and
he is planning a novel dealing
with basic Jewish issues.

affairs stems from a staunchly
Zionist family background. A
visitor to Israel, he serves cur-
rently as vice-president of the
American Jewish League for

Israel. He was a member of
the National Executive Com-
mittee of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America. Other organ-

three sons.

Agency, an American non-profit
corporation, is the first and

only worldwide press associa-
tion specializing in coverage of
news of Jewish interest. The
JTA's news gathering and
distribution networks operate
throughout the free world.
Twelve bureaus supplemented
by correspondents in most over-
seas centers provide extensive
daily coverage of all develop-
ments affecting the Jewish
people.
The JTA provides service to
the general press and radio in
the United States, in Yiddish to
the Yiddish press; coverage for

the English - language Jewish
periodicals in the United States
and Canada and overseas radio-
printer transmission service to

rael and elsewhere throughout
the world.

ington and United Nations bu-
reaus. JTA news dispatches

lished in six languages in 11

Opens New Division
for Used Home Sales

Appointment of Charles R.
Koller as sales manager for the
newly-established used home di-
vision of the Colburn Realty
Co., 13203 Fenkell, was an-
nounced this week by Allan Col-

new homes purchased through
Colburn Realty's new home
sales office, or through two
other plans outlined by Col-

lists the house and promotes
its sale through all media avail-

it-yourself kit, available to
home owners at a nominal
charge, for those wishing to
sell their own homes. The kit
contains necessary signs and
materials to conduct a home
sales campaign.
The director of the used
home division has an extensive
background in real estate and
mortgage placement, having
served as a sales agent and
specialist in vacant and used
properties and in the real estate
insurance field. Koller also has
a diversified background in new
and commercial properties.
Officers of the firm, in addi-
tion to Allan Colburn, are Dav-
id Bidne, vice-president and
general manager, and Merton

Michigan's major highways...
CONCRETE is safer. .more dependable... more economical!

On

Concrete pavements are first choke for Michigan's major
highways. When roads must carry heavy traffic with
safety and dependability, concrete is picked.
Modern concrete is engineered to carry the heaviest
traffic—and with extra safety, too, thanks to concrete's
skid-resistant surface and highly visible light color. Con-
crete's low construction cost is added good news. It's
often less than "cheaper" substitutes . . . yet you get
double the durability.
Longer life plus lower upkeep costs are more reasons
why engineers select concrete pavements for Michigan's
key trunklines.
