More than 800 Detroiters,
among them some of the most
prominent leaders in the Ameri-
can labor movement, gathered
Wednesday at the Masonic Tem-
ple, at a dinner in honor of
Walter Reuther, president of
the UAW and vice president of
the AFL-CIO.
The highlight of the program
was the presentation of the
"Labor Man of the Decade"
plaque by Ambassador Mich-
ael Comay, Israel's permanent

representative to the United
Nations. The State of Israel
honored Reuther through the
Detroit Israel Bond Organiza-
tion. The award read:
"Presented to Walter P.
Reuther, Labor Man of the
Decade, for distinguished serv-
ice to the cause of freedom as
expressed in his support of and
friendship for the State of
Israel, now celebrating its 13th
birthday, for his courageous
leadership on behalf of the

Agency Slates $39 Million
for Israel Immigration Aid

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Alloca-
tions totaling more than $39,000,-
000 for immigration and rehabili-
tation programs in Israel, for the
fiscal year 1961-62, were approv-
ed this weekend by the board of
directors of the Jewish Agency
for Israel, Inc., a major benefi-
ciary of the United Jewish Appeal.
The funds, it was announced,
will be used for transportation,
reception, absorption, housing,
agricultural settlement, the care
and training of yOuth, institutions
of higher learning and research,
debt service and debt liquidation.
- Major categories of allocations
approved by the Agency's board
were close to $9,000,000 for im-
migration, initial absorption and.
emergency employment; more
than $11,000,000 for agricultural
settlement; $2,500,000 for immi-
grant housing; $1,500,000 for
youth services and educational
programs; and $6,500,000 for debt
liquidation.
The allocations, determined by
a line-by-line review of a budget
of needs totaling close to $60,000,-
000, were based on recommenda-
tions submitted by Dr. Isador
Lubin, the Agency's consultant
for programs in Israel, and on a
year-round study of the oper-
ational and fiscal problems of
immigrant rehabilitation pro-
grams in Israel conducted by the
board since the Agency's reor-
ganization in April 1960.
Lubin, who presented his first
summary report last fall after a
two-month stay in Israel, will con-
tinue to submit to the board his
analyses of specific areas of ac-
tivities throughout the year. He
will soon leave for Israel to su-
pervise the establishment of the
Agency's Jerusalem office, and to
gather information for a further
study of budgetary requirements
to be considered at a meeting of
the board early in the fall.
Lubin stressed that his recom-
mendations were based on the
board's decision to keep within
the limits of estimated available
cash, but held that these funds
were inadequate to meet basic
needs. He warned that, unless
additional funds, above the allo-
cated $39,000,000 were,forthcom-
ing in the future, rising immigra-
tion figures might make it im-
possible for the Jewish Agency
in Israel to provide even the most
elementary services for new ar-
rivals.
Dewey D. Stone, chairman of
the Agency's board, expressed
deep concern over the long-range
effect of totally inadequate allo-
cations. He said that, "while other
sources such as the philanthropic
campaigns outside the U.S., and
allocations from German repara-
tion funds, may bridge part of the
gap between our allocations and
the rock bottom needs of immi
gration and rehabilitation pro-
grams in Israel, we are creating
a financial vacuum which will
haunt us in the months to come."
In addition to financing initial
financing absorption services for
immigrants in 1961-62, the Agen-

Sapir Predicts Huge
Investments in Israel

JERUSALEM, (JTA) Addi-
tional foreign investments, total-
ing $500,000,000 to $600,000,000
in the next five years, were pre-
dicted by Pinhas Sapir, Minister
of Commerce and Industry, on
his return from a tour of Europe
and North America.

cy must also provide funds 'for
present programs being provided
to earlier immigrants, he said.
Most pressing among these pro-
grams is the consolidation of hun-
dreds of new immigrant villages
with a population of some 130,000
persons, which will require addi-
tional funds estimated at around
$200,000,000 to be invested within
the next few years.
Other present programs include
maintenance and training of some
12,000 immigrant youngsters, the
resettlement of some 40,000 hard-
core cases still in transition set-
tlements, and arrangements for
permanent care of thousands of
social cases. Out of close to
1,000,000 immigrants who arrived
in Israel since May 15, 1948, 250,-
000 are still dependent on serv-
ices financed through UJA funds,
Stone said.

the principles and ideals of our
great American democracy."
It was signed by the national
heads of the Bond organization:
Abraham Feinberg, president;
Joseph J. Schwartz, vice presi-
dent; Ira Guilden, national cam-
paign chairman, and Jack D.
Weiler, secretary-treasurer.

Israel Bond pledge of $160,000
by AFL-CIO locals, with many
more to be announced after
local board meetings, was an-
nounced` Leading purchase was
a $100,000 pledge from the
UAW.
Dr. Morris Adler, chairman
of . the UAW- public Review
