for the wives and children of hospitalized veterans. Each
year, Levinson, who is president of Franklin Mortgage Corp.,
has raised from $6,000 to $10,000 for the veterans' wives
and children in the three veterans' hospitals in Dearborn,

he was again drafted this year to continue this service, and
in appreciation a testimonial dinner was given in his honor
on Dec. 10 by the Allied Veterans Council at the Veterans

the "Man of the Year" award plaque, and the presentation
was made by Lawrence Gubow, U.S. Attorney for this dis-

passionate understanding and continuing effort and leader-

On the Record

From My Notebook .. .
The lure of public dinners

has thinned for me over the
years and, but for professional
responsibility, I could do with-
out them.
More often than not the din-
ner speeches are agonizingly
dull, repetitious, mundane and
as long as the galuth. It is on
rare occasions that a dinner
speaker rises above the din. I
always strain my neck to get a
speaker's tone and undertone,
but almost always my scribbling
is in vain when I have de-
ciphered it. The words invar-
iably are old, the semantics
colorless, the ideas antiquated
and the content shallow.
As a rule there is neither
newness nor even phrase-
making throughout an evening
of laborious travaille.
There have of course been
notable exceptions. Among the
few Jewish leaders who can be
counted on never striking an
inauspicious note from platform
is Edward M. M. Warburg. His
roots of mercy and understand-
ing are so deep that he almost
never relies on script for guid-
ance when he dwells on Jewish
moments. As often as I have
