Northland Ford Motors, Green-
field and 10 Mile, announces the
appointment of ROBERT B. CAR-

public relations counsel.


The 3,000-deadweight-ton cargo motorship "Esther," the first
ocean-going merchant vessel built in Israel since the reign of King

the Zim Lines fleet and will be followed by two more Israel-built
sister-ships, the M/S Hanna, to be launched shortly at Haifa and an
as yet un-named vessel. The "Esther" is one of a class of seven
sisterships ordered by the Zim Lines, three of which were built or
are building in Israel and four in Holland. The latter, the motorships
"Lea," "Miriam," "Rivka" and "Sara," named for Biblical matri-
archs, have all been delivered as have two similar but slightly larger
Dutch-built motorships, the "Dvora" and "Rachel." The Israel Ship-
yards Ltd., which is expanding its work staff, is now capable of build-
ing ships of up to 7,000 deadweight tons. It is the only modern
shipyard in the Near East.

in 1902 when a group of young

picnics. In 1908, the group
rented a cottage in Windsor for

acre site on Blaine Lake near
Brighton in 1925. The first season
opened in 1927, and the camp has
operated to capacity and beyond
for thousands of children since
that time.
In 1950, Tamarack, a 587-acre
site, was purchased in northern
Oakland County, 45 miles from
Detroit. The Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration has since acquired an
additional 124 acres, bringing the
total to 711.

Realtors Join Community Councils
in Attempt to Solve Integration Woes

tegration in the area is to open
other parts of the city where Ne-
groes can buy homes.

Local realtor William Gross and
the new group he heads, the In-
dependent Real Estate Brokers'
Association, have started efforts
to work closely with community
councils in the area.
Gross, of Gross Realty Co., said
his group would meet with com-
munity councils in an attempt to
reach agreement on how much
solicitation i t s member - brokers
could do.
Homeowners in the Northwest
area have charged realty agents
with blockbusting tactics and at-
tempting to turn the section into
a "Negro-ghetto."
Gross' organization is working
through the Detroit Commission
on Community Relations to set
up meetings so that standards
can be arranged by real estate
men and councils.
The association also hopes to
bring the entire problem of Negro-
white housing to the attention of
the state government and will work
for changes in the fair neighbor-
hood practices ordinance. Section
K of that ordinance regulates the
solicitation of homeowners by real
estate salesmen.
Gross admitted that there are
tactics being used to intimidate
residents into leaving changing
neighborhoods, but ,"we do not
condone these tactics in our own
business and we strongly suspect
that the entire situation has be-
come too highly emotionally
charged." He said prices for homes
have remained firm in the area.
Another realtor, Ralph Miller of
Miller Brothers Realty, suggested
that the best way to preserve in-
