By PAUL ZOUSMER
Jennie Grossinger is a re-
markable woman, not only be-
cause she has built the world-
famous Grossinger Country Club
at Grossinger, N.Y., but also be-
cause she has distinguished
herself as one of the country's
foremost humanitarians.
Mrs. Grossinger recently told
how a simple lesson had started
..,,::her on the
happy road to
helping people.
"When I was a
little girl,"
said Jennie,
"m y mother
took me to a
little pushka
(charity box)
we had on a
door in my
house. My
mother
dropped a few
coins into the
box and told
rn e: "Jennie,
Mrs. Grossinger always share
your pennies with others. A life
without sharing is barren and
has no meaning." Jennie remem-
bered that advice, and, as a
result, her life is fruitful and
significant.
Evidence of her constructive
life is to be seen in the many
plaques . and awards she has re-
, ceived from charity organiza-
I bons, governinents, educational
institutions, and service groups.
A few years ago, Jennie Gros-
singer and Dr. Leona Baumgart-
ner, then Commissioner of
Health in New York City, were
given a testimonial luncheon in
honor of their aid to the physi-
cally handicapped.
As a member of a minority,
Jennie Grossinger is extremely
sympathetic to the plight of all
minorities. Wilberforce Univer-
sity, a Baptist institute in Ohio,
awarded her a doctor of humani-
ties degree a few years ago "for
winning a place in the hearts of
people of all faiths and colors."
Recently, Jennie went to Is-
rael to see the new Jennie
Grossinger Medical Center in
Tel Aviv. It serves 30,000 peo-
ple, Arabs as well as Jews.
George Jessel, who was in Is-
rael at the time, was amazed by
the reception she received.
"You can't tell me there isn't
something magic about Jennie
that commands attention and
respect_ I was with her when
she. visited a small town in Is-
rael. The Arabs had absolutely
no idea who in the world she
was, but they were attracted to
her. They flocked around her as
though she were a visiting
queen."

by Soviet authorities to visit

Visitor from Israel
Quarantined by Court
as Smallpox Precaution

NEW YORK, (JTA) — A 69-
year-old American woman, who

has been residing in Israel, was
confined to the U. S. Public
Health Service Hospital in Staten
Island here, as a possible small-
pox carrier.
Mrs. Ellen Siegel, who arrived
here July 25 from Israel with
her husband, Louis, to visit
their children and friends in
America, was ordered quaran-
tined by Judge John F. Dooling,
Jr., in Brooklyn Federal Court.
Public health officers transfered
Mrs. Siegel directly to the quar-
antine facility immediately on
her arrival here, because she
had no certification that her
May 31 vaccination had been
effective, and because she had
a history of unsuccessful vaccin-
ations. They were also concerned
with her having made a four-day
stopover in Stockholm, which
suffered a recent outbreak of
25 smallpox cases, four of which
were fatal. Mr. Siegel, who was
found to have been properly
immunized, is staying with his
wife during her isolation.

Measure to Protect
Israeli Claimants of
Swiss Bank Assets

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The
Knesset passed the first reading
of a bill limiting the types of
persons or institutions author-
ized to deal with claims under
the recently passed Swiss law,
under which assets left in Swiss
banks by Jews and others who
perished during the Nazi holo-
cause, will be revealed.
Under Israel's draft measure,
only attorneys will be enpowered
to handle claims under the new
Swiss law. However, the law
would also enpower the Israel
Attorney General and certain
public institutions to represent
claimants. The Swiss laws does
not go into effect until Septem-
ber 1, but various agents are
already canvassing potential
claimants in Israel.
