ZOD Public Meeting Wednesday to Present 3 Experts on Aliyah Opportunities

Judge Ira G. Kaufman, presi-
dent of the Zionist Organization
of Detroit, has extended an invi-
tation to the entire community to

the British Prime Minister, Mr.
The ZOD Aliyah committee, con-.
Eshkol was asked by a reporter of
a British Jewish publication about
the meeting.
"Men hat sick keshooshket" re-
plied Mr. Eshkol.
None of the big phrases that
statesmen of two countries usually
make after such a meeting for
Eshkoli They just had "geshoosh-
When Eshkol some months back
visited the White House and
"shooshket" with the President,
he was asked about that meeting
and he summed it up by saying of
President Johnson, "Er is kein
narrischer bachur." On the more
recent occasion of the celebration
of Israel's Independence Day, re-
ferring to some of the new wea-
pons in Israel's possession, Mr.
Eshkol remarked, doubtless with a
view of impressing Nasser, "These
are not our only babies."
Mr. Eshkol's Deputy Prime
Minister, Abba Eban, of course,
would have said all of these things
quite differently. Mr. Eban is more
like Macaulay. It was said of Ma-
caulay that when he was four
years old. an elderly lady inquired
about his toothache and he re-
plied. "M a d a In, the agony is

is the man." Eshkol has the light
touch. with a dash of humor. He
speaks Hebrew fluently, but he
was in his late teens when he
left Russia for the Jewish Home-
land and when he wants to make
a pointed remark, he falls back
on Yiddish. Where can one find
a better word than "geshooshk.et?"
But the light touch is not in-
consistent with a serious approach.
It was Eshkol who as Minister of
Finance was responsible for intro-
ducing the heavy income taxes in
Israel. One of the old stories was
of the goat on Ben-Gurion's farm
that boasted to another goat that
he had been milked by Mr. Ben-
Gurion himself. The second goat
said, it made no difference to her
who milked her.
4 'Oh. I don't know, said the first
goat." I don't suppose you would
care for Mr. Eshkol to milk you."

Israel Immigration Chief
j Urges More From U.S.

NEW YORK (JTA) — Israel's
direst need for the preservation of
the state is increased immigration
of highly qualified Jews from the
Anglo-Saxon countries, trained in
sophisticated industrial and tech-
nological know-how, S. Z. Shragai,
of Jerusalem, director of the Jew-
ish Agency's immigration depart-
ment, told a press conference here
Shragai, who will be in Detroit
June 9 and 10, noted that, while
Jewish immigration from t h e
United States rose from about 50
in 1957 to 2,000 last year, the
number is far from satisfactory.
Israel, he said, needs more settlers
from lands with high cultural de-
velopment to help step up its in-
dustrial, scientific and technologi-
cal growth at an increased rate.
The Jewish Agency, he reported,
is making every effort to help
acclimatize immigrants from the
Anglo-Saxon countries, including
the United States.

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Ameri-
can Jewish Congress charged that
a bill passed by the New York
State Assembly requiring public
school boards to furnish textbooks
to parochial and private school

the State Constitution and the de-
cisions of the state courts."
The statement was contained in
a legal memorandum sent by the
Congress to every member of the
State Senate. A parallel bill has
been introduced in the Senate.
