Forest, in which he and Mrs.
Kasle participated recently, Abe
Kasle this week praised the
work of the Jewish National
Fund, under whose auspices
the planting is being conducted.
"As -you will note in the ac-
companying picture, Mrs. Kasle
and I actually planted seedlings
in the Freedom Forest, in the
plot of the State of Michigan,
in the- hills of Jerusalem,"
-Kasle said. "This Forest is Di-
cated on the new highway which
is being built from Jerusalem to
Beersheba." He' 'added: :

"It is hard to describe the
emotional feeling and the
pride that Mrs. Kasle and I
had for having lived to the
day of actually planting the
Kasle Family Forest. I urge
families and fraternal groups
to work towards the goal of
deriving the satisfaction in
their lifetime of planting
forests, so that the land of
Israel can be reclaimed and
conserved for productive
use." •

ily to JNF, as a boy, more than
60 years ago, by dropping coins
in the JNF boxes, Kasle told
of the place of honor he and
his family gave to the JNF
boxes in their homes. He re-
called his first visit in Israel
in 1952, and said that the
follow-up visit he made with
Mrs. Kasle introduced him more
intimately to the Jewish Na-
tional Fund. He said he meas-
ured the progress from 1952 to
1960 and praised the accom-

"The JNF
-employer of labor in' Israel,"
Kasle ,said, , "and that alone
should encourage - the most
dedicated support for this
cause. And there are so many
other great accomplishments
to the JNF's credit 'that it
remains in the forefront of
Israeli constructive agencies."


He described the JNF nurs-
eries, the progress made in tree-
planting and the numerous
other Israeli attainments, and
he especially commended the
planting of the Freedom Forest
for the 50 States in the Union
