10-Year-Olds Give
'Dues' to Hadassah

Arthur Hurvitz and Billy
Weller, a couple of 10-year-
olds who live on Strathmoor
Ave., recently tried to organ-
ize a club for boys. After col-
lecting dues in the amount of
$2.80, the boys decided to
abandon the project.
What to do with the $2.80?
Since none of the young men
wanted their money back, it
was decided to contribute the
funds to Hadassah's Voca-
tional Educational Fund
through the Schaefer Group.
Another way that Hadassah
is serving to strengthen the
link between the youth of
American and Israel!

To be known as the "Harry
S. Truman Freedom Bell," it
will be rung twice each year—
on the anniversary of the estab-
lishment of the State of Israel
and on July 4, the United States
Independence Day.
The name of Philip Slomo•
vitz, Jewish News editor, has
been inscribed on the bell, "in
recognition of his outstanding
service to Hadassah, to all local
activities for the betterment of
human welfare and to the state
of Israel."
New officers of Sherwood
Group of Detroit Chapter are
the following: Mesdames Ivan
Meisner, president; Ben Borin,
Samuel S. Aaron, Harold Berry,
Milford Pregerson and Cy
Aaron, vice-presidents; Harvey
Snider, treasurer; Elizabeth
Stone, assistant treasurer; Louis
Luckoff, Graham Landau, John
J. Mann and Sol Mullin, secre-
taries.

This ship, the Banner Lines

"We have the names of other

about whether the crews had

Brager Expands
Israel Operations

In a major move to help
make possible . the State of Is-
rael's plans for a five-year
$250,000,000 investment pro-
gram in the United States,
Harry E. Brager Associates, the
only registered American se-
curities firm dealing exclusively
in Israel securities, announced
expansion of its underwriting
operations under the name of
Brager and Company, with na-
tional offices in New York
City.
Brager and Company will
underwrite new issues of Is-
raeli securities and will also
create an over-the-counter mar-
ket in the United States for Is-
raeli securities already issued,
according to Harry E. Brager,
president. The expanded firm
begins operations with under-
writing contracts for the sale
of $10,000,000 of new securities.
Its program will include the
creation of broker-dealer syndi-
cates throughout the country
for marketing new issues and
to encourage trading on both
the United States and Tel-Aviv
Stock Exchanges.
Pinchas Sapir, Israel's Minis-
ter of Commerce and Industry,
this year announced his coun-
try's master plan with a goal
of $250,000,000 in private in-
vestment from the United
States alone in the next five
years for establishing new in-
dustries and expanding others.
In the past two years Harry
E. Brager Associates has mar-
keted over $7,500,000 of Israeli
securities in the United States.
Two issues marketed by the
firm made possible the expan-
sion of the American-Israeli
Paper Mills and the Alliance
Tire and Rubber Company.
These issues are now listed on
the American Stock Exchange.
