Histadrut Sponsors Tribute Dinner
for Senator Patrick V. McNamara;
Israeli Scholarship Fund Started
By MARCY MILLER
"In Israel today there is no
provision for free high school
education for immigrant children
over the age of 14. This is the
goal of Israel. Scholarships are the
means by which these children
can receive an education."
These are the words of Yaacov
Morris of the Israel Foreign Af-
fairs Committee, keynote speaker
at Saturday night's tribute dinner
honoring Patrick V. McNamara.
the senior senator from Michigan.
Sen. McNamara consented to the
testimonial only if the proceeds
would go to a worthwhile project.
Toward this end, a scholarship
fund has been set up in the sen-
ator's name by Histadrut, the Is-
rael Labor Federation, which will
enable Israeli teen-agers of di-
verse backgrounds to acquire skills
vital for a progressive society.
Morris went on to say: "The
political climate of the country
is a democratic one. However,
there is a difference in a policy
which is based on equality, and
real equality based on full
equality of educational oppor-
tunity. There is no equality in
the advantages of a family of
two or three from Europe and
the disadvantages of those who
come from other areas of the
world and have six or seven
children crowded into 2% rooms."
After extending in the name of
Histadrut an invitation to Sen. and
Mrs. McNamara to visit Israel in
the near future and personally
acquaint themselves with the Is-
raeli people, the special represen-
tative of Israel to the United
States cited the attempts being
made by Histadrut to settle cul-
turally underdeveloped Moroccans
in the new Negev settlements.
He added, "Education is the
key to equality in every way."
The theme of the tribute ban-
quet was taken from one of Sen.
McNamara's speeches in Congress
in which he said. "The schoolroom
is as vital to the freedom and de-
fense of a nation as its military
In accepting the tributes to him,
Sen. McNamara stated: "The need
for education is the root to the
attack on poverty. Starting at the
elementary and secondary levels,
we have to prepare for the future.
The scholarships that tonight's din-
ner will help to provide will go to
help students who could not other-
wise receive an education beyond
the elementary level. To each and
every one of you. I thank you
from the bottom of my heart."
Other notables who brought
greetings to the senator included
Al Barbour, president of the
Wayne County AFL - CIO and
chairman of the dinner; Sen.
Philip A. Hart, Michigan's jun-
ior senator; Jerome P. Cavanagh,
mayor of Detroit and honorary
chairman of the dinner commit.
tee; and former Gov. G. Mennen
Williams, now assistant Secre-
tary of State for African affairs.
The Senator was also greeted by
Ed Carey, president of the Detroit
Common Council, who presented
him with a plaque honoring his
years of service to Michigan; and
Edward Connor, chairman of the
Wayne County Board of Super-
Gregory J. Bardacke, executive
director of the American Trade
Council for Histadrut, the ban-
quet's sponsors, introduced guest
speaker Morris. Sen. McNamara
was introduced by Emil Mazey,
secretary-treasurer of the UAW,
who has just returned from a tour
of Israel, where he inspected the
Histadrut institutions and met
with important government offi-
cials and representatives of Is-
rael's labor movement.

gram was Morris Lieberman, De-
troit attorney and a national vice
chairman of Histadrut, who pre-
sented the senator with another
tributary scroll. He commented on
the problems of providing ade-
quate scholarships to worthy stu-
dents in Israel and the irreparable
loss of talent represented in those
who were rejected for lack of
Lieberman said, "It is from
these very students who will
benefit from Sen. McNamara's
scholarship fund that hope will
come to the people of Israel for
a better world for all of us."
