Friday, December 13, 1963—THE DETROIT JEWIS H NEW S-18

JDC Sets 1964
$33,461,000 Goal

Joint Distribution Committee,
at its annual meeting, adopted a
budget of $33,461,000 for its
activities in 1964, almost $3,-
000,000 greater than in 1963.
More than 500 delegates from
all parts of the country attended
the dinner meeting at which
Mrs. Marietta Tree, Unit e d
States representative to the
United Nations, was the guest
The adopted budget provides
for relief, medical and welfare
services for some 485,000 needy
Jews in 30 countries of Europe,
North Africa and the Near East,
including I s r a e 1. This is the
greatest number to be aided
since 1949.
The largest single item in the
budget remains the JDC-
Malben program in Israel, he
noted. The budget provides
$7,000,000 to aid aged, ill and
handicapped newcomers to the
Jewish State in 1964. The next
largest item, $5,565,900, is for
aid in Europe. In the Moslem
countries, despite the continu-
ing emigration of tens of thou-
sands, close to 100,000 Jews—
about half the remaining Jewish
population — will need JDC
assistance in 1964. The budget
has allotted $6,200,000 for its
program in this area.
In Israel JDC will provide
aid for over 83,000, some
50,000 of whom to be assisted
through the Malben program
and 8'795,000 will be allocated
for aid to another 35,000 in
104 yeshivoth (r eligious
schools) and other religious
end cultural programs in Israel
and for vocational training.
Edward M. M. Warburg, who
was re-elected at the meeting
as JDC chairman, reported that
the historic migration of over-
seas Jews, which began immedi-
ately after World War II, was
still continuing.
Charles H. Jordan, JDC
director - general for overseas
operations, in analyzing at the
dinner the 1964 budget, stressed
the number of Jews to be aided
by JDC in the coming year "is
the largest since 1949." He cited
especially the fact that of the
85,000 Jews to be aided in all of
Europe in 1964 more than
50,000 are r e f u g e e s from
Algeria and other North African
c o u n t r i e s now residing in
Sol Satinsky of Philadelphia,
who was re-elected chairman of
the JDC National Council, re-
ported on the growing knowl-
edge and understanding of the
needs of Jews overseas in
American communities as a
result of the agency's Commun-
ity Information Program. Edwin
Rosenberg of New York was
elected Comptroller. He suc-
ceeds Alexander A. Landesco,
who died earlier this year.

Emperor of Iran
Receives Chief of
Israelite Alliance

The Emperor of Iran recently
received Admiral Louis Kahn,
deputy president of the Alliance
Israelite Universelle, who was
on a visit to Iran.
Well informed on the work of
the schools of the Alliance in
Iran, the Shah told Admiral
Kahn that he wishes to encour-
age the leaders of the Alliance
to continue and expand the work
of the organization for the good
of the Iranian Jewish community,
which, he added, has enjoyed
conditions of peaceful life in
Persia-Iran since the times of
King Cyrus the Great.
Admiral Kahn also visited sev-
eral provincial towns of the
country where the schools of the
Alliance are operating.
There are now about. 6,000 stu-
dents in the schools of the Alli-
ance in Iran. The first Alliance
school in the c o u n t r y was
founded in 1898.

What can you buy for pennies today?
Electric energy is one thing—the cleanest, most versatile form of useful
energy. One great advantage is its adaptability. Electric energy is used for
lighting, cooking and communication; for heating, cooling and to run com-
puters. It powers motors small enough to run wristwatches, and motors large
enough to operate the presses that form auto bodies.
Detroit Edison provides electric energy for pennies per kilowatthour.
And the more you use, the lower the unit cost becomes. Below, expressed in
pennies, are estimated costs of operation of the more commonly used electric
Constant research, alert management and the dedication of our em-
ployes have enabled us to reduce the unit cost of electric energy. For example,
when I first became a part of the electric industry in 1922, it took nearly two
pounds of coal to generate one kilowatthour of energy. Over the intervening
years I've seen technological developments reduce this figure to 1.7 pounds-
1.5 pounds-1.25 pounds and then a pound. Today, the most efficient of our
turbine generators produce a kilowatthour of electric energy from three-fourths
pound of coal.
Detroit Edison has pioneered in many of the engineering improvements
which have led to these and other economies. As a result, the company has not
increased its rates for electric service since 1949. Equally important, most of
our customers use more electric energy now than they did then, so the average
cost per kilowatthour is 14 per cent less than it was in 1949.
This is one reason why it's good economy to live electrically. Detroit
Edison services, including free or minimum cost electric appliance repairs,
are additional reasons. Backing up these services are all the efficient facilities
and friendly people that are the company.
