Israel Bonds Gets Vice President Humphrey's Boost;
Record $24,700,000 Sales Include Detroiters' $425,000

MIAMI—Vice President Hubert
H. Humphrey declared here that
1,540,000 subscribers to I s r a el
Bonds have provided "the pio-
neers of Israel with the tools to
rebuild their homeland in peace
and understanding," adding that
"They have helped construct a
nation where freedom flourishes."
He observed that "the Ameri-
can tradition and the tradition of
Israel have always agreed, not
only on the possiblity of building
a society which men might call
Great, but also on the social and
ethical foundations on which that
Society must rest."
In projecting his plan for the
Great Society, President John-
son has demonstrated his con-
cern for the "social and ethical
principles which are the course
of our Judeo-Christian heritage,"
Humphrey said.
The Vice President addressed
more than 2,000 Jewish leaders
from the United States and
Canada at the Inaugural Confer-
ence for the 1965 Israel Bond
drive, where he received the Hu-
man Freedom Award. The three-
day international conf er en c e
marked the official launching of
the worldwide sale this year of
$100,000,000 in State of I s r a el
Bonds fo rthe economic develop-
ment of Israel. There were 88 De-
troiters at the inaugural dinner.
The inaugural conference wit-
nessed the presentation to Vice
President Humphrey of the Hu-
man Freedom Award—a medal-
lion mounted on a stone which
was brought from the ancient for-
tress of Masada in Israel. Masada
was the last Jewish fortress to fall
to the Roman invaders of Pale-
stine in 73 A.D. The award cited
the Vice President "whose . life has
been a consecrated example of de-
votion to human freedom as the
bedrock of our democracy and its
mission of equality, liberty and
justice for all."
Sir Isaac Wolfson, British in-
dustrialist, financier and hu-
manitarian, was the guest of
honor at the inaugural dinner.
Pointing to the advances made
with the aid of Israel Bonds, Sir
Isaac emphasized that "economic
independence for Israel is no
longer a remote dream. It is an
objective which can be realisti-
cally achieved." As evidence of
its progress, he cited the fact that
Israel is now extending aid and
technical cooperation to 50 coun-
tries in Africa, Asia and Latin
America.
Israel's Deputy Prime Minister
Abba Eban outlined his country's
plans for economic development,
stressing the role of Israel Bonds
in helping Israel "achieve a de-
cisive breakthrough toward in-
dustrialization."
The initial subscription of a
record amount of $24,700,000 in
State of Israel Bonds, the larg-
est sum to be obtained for the
opening phase of the campaign,
was announced by Samuel Roth-
berg, national campaign chair-
man of the Israel Bond Organi-
zation.
Americans and Canadians who
invested in the economic develop-
ment of Israel through the pur-
chase of State of Israel Bonds
will receive $43,000,000 in redemp-
tion payments this year, it was
announced by Louis H. Boyar, of
Los Angeles, chairman of the
board of governors of the Israel
Organization.
Boyar reported that in addition
to the amount due this year, the
sum of $66,800,000 was paid out
by the State of Israel on maturing
Bonds during the period from
May 1, 1963 through the end of
1964.
The State of Israel bought more
goods from the United States
than from any other country in
the world last year, it was re-
ported by Abraham Feinberg,
president of the Israel Bond Or-
ganization. Feinberg announced
that in 1964 Israel's imports from
the United States amounted to
$202,000,000 or 26 per cent of the

degree of doctor of laws from
the Jewish Theological Semi-
nary of America at a luncheon
here Sunday. He was cited for
his "conviction that American
life should embody the truths
of Biblical prophecy concerning
the pursuit of economic justice
and peace among men."

At the third annual Israel Bond leadership reception for De-
troiters at the Charles Grosberg home in Miami Beach, at which
Sam Rothberg, Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz and Phillip Stoliman spoke
and which climaxed the pre-inaugural conference activities and
brought the total of Miami conference subscriptions by Detroiters
to $425,000, from left: Mrs. Louis M. Elliman, Rothberg, Irwin I.

total amount in goods which it
purchased aboard.
Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, vice-
president of the Israel Bond Or-
ganization, stressed that a quota
of $100,000,000 had been assumed
for the year as the largest in the
Bond drive's 14-year history. He
indicated that in the current year
American investors w o u l d re-
ceive $43,000,000 from the State
of Israel through the redemption
of Israel Bonds which reach ma-.
turity in 1965.
Dr. Max Nussbaum, President
of the Zionist Organization of
America, who spoke at a special
session attended by members of
the ZOA, cited Israel's increasing
reliance on Israel Bonds to carry
her development programs for-
ward.
The 1965 campaign of the Na-
tional Women's Division of the
Israel B on d Organization was
launched at a luncheon and
French-Israeli fashion show pre-
miere Friday. Mrs. Jan Peerce,
chairman of the division, presided.

man of the Children and Youth

Soulless 'Other
People's Houses'

Lore Groszman was 10 when
Hitler took Austria. She was sent
to England. Later her parents
joined her there. Under the rules
set for refugees, they had to work
as servants in homes that wel-
comed them.
This explains the title of Lore

Segal's book, "Other People's
Houses," published by Harcourt,

Brace & World (757 Third, NY17),
which is the original Lore's story
about her wanderings from home
to home, and the experiences with
many people, Jews and non-Jews.
While it is a story about people
of all faiths, it also is an account
of a young girl who seemed self-
centered, who may have been un-
grateful, as one of the women
in the story accused her.
And although Lore became a
refugee because she was Jewish,
her Jewish interests seem to be
nil.
There is a single brief para-
graph towards the end of the
book which explains this angle:
"We don't celebrate anything
any more. No Christmas because
we're Jewish, and no Jewish holi-
days because we were assimilated

Austrians, and no Austrian holi-
days because we got thrown out
for being Jewish, and we haven't
acquired the American holidays
yet."
Mrs. Segal writes a good story,
but as an account of a refugee
who had aid, whose background is
Jewish, it lacks soul. That's the
regrettable verdict that must be
passed on a well-written book that
lacks sentiment.
