Ruth Gruber Likens Puerto Rico to
Israel in Book, 'Island of Promise'

Ruth Gruber, the well known
foreign correspondent — she is
Mrs. Philip Michaels in private
life — has gained popularity as
an able lecturer and as one of
the best reporters of the Israeli
Her earlier books, "Israel To-
day," "Israel Without Tears"
and "Destination Palestine,"
served valu-
able purposes
in explaining
the events in
Palestine prior
to the emer-
gence of the
Jewish State
and the early
years of Is-
rael's stat e-
h o o d. They
were deserved-
ly best sellers.
Now she ryas
written an-
other very
valuable book
about another r:
subject close
to her heart.
H e r publish- Ruth Gruber
ers, Hill and Wang, Inc., (104
5th, N.Y. 11) have just issued
her "Puerto Rico: Island of
It is a well-documented and
beautifully illustrated volume. It
is a result of "a voyage and
rediscovery" made last fall at
the suggestion of Lawrence Hill
and Arthur Wang, the enter-
prising publishers. It also was a
labor of love — she met her
husband in Puerto Rico, both
had taken an interest in the
Puerto Ricans, she had covered
the Puerto Rico scene for the
New York Herald Tribune for
whom Miss Gruber also served
as correspondent in Palestine
and in Israel.
Every aspect of life in
Puerto Rico is touched upon
here, and the status of Puerto
Ricans in New York becomes
more understandable as a re-

suit of this splendid account.
It is reasonable to believe
that many of the prejudices
against Puerto Ricans will
disappear if the text of Miss
Gruber's report can be broad-
cast widely among New York-
People, places, schools, "mores
and morals," the reasons for
Puerto Ricans' settlement in
New York are explained with
sympathy and understanding by
Miss Gruber.
Jewish readers will find spe-
cial interest in a chapter titled
"Puerto Rico Is Like Israel."
In it, Miss Gruber draws com-
parisons, shows how "both are
pulling. themselves up by the
bootstraps with the same dynam-
ic and creative spirit."
Luis Rivera Santos, Puerto
Rico's Secretary of -Agricul-
ture and Commerce, was in
Israel last year for the In-
ternational Agricultural Con-
ference, and there he, too,
saw "one of the closest re-
semblances" between the two
peoples. Upon his return, he
sent nine Puerto Rican farm-
ers to study cooperative and
collective farm life in Israel.
He told Miss Gruber that he
sent them there "not only to
train in agriculture but also
to see that other people are
struggling as we are."
Miss Gruber points out, how-
ever, that while Israel is a land
of immigration, Puerto Rico is
one of emigration; that while
Israel "has created a reservoir
of good will, Puerto Rico
still remains little known and
vastly misunderstood."
The purpose of her book is
to break down barriers, to bring
understanding for the Puerto
Ricans, to help it become "our
island of promise." She suc-
ceeds admirably in her efforts.
Her book has a valuable set
of hints for travelers. It is a
well-written, informative , vol-
ume, bringing good will to the
U.S. West Indies possession.
