The Michigan Chronicle, the
leading Negro weekly, in an edi-
torial greeting the Jewish commu-
nity on the New Year, takes note
of the Jews' role in the battle for
civil rights and declares:
"The story of the Jewish peo-
ple's role in the betterment of
mankind is a magnificent one.
Throughout history they have stood
on the front lines of the continu-
ing struggle for full human rights.
"Today, because of their affinity
to this never-ending struggle the
Jewish soldier, from Rabbi to Jew-
ish housewife, has fought on the
civil rights battlefield as if the out-
come depended on Jews alone."

To mark the occasion, more than

honor to Borman, Fisher read a
message of greeting from Gov-
ernor George Romney.
Robinson, in a splendidly com-
posed address, spoke of the cen-
turies of evolution that led to 20th
century enlightenment and "the
awakening of man to self-realiza-
tion in a world that is getting
better," and declared that Israel
fits well into this ferment of re-
"Israel pumps fresh oxygen in
areas of demoralization," he added.
He described Israel's role in pro-
viding aid for underdeveloped na-
tions and said: "Let that be our
pleasure and our pride. Israel is a
focus of morality to animate fel-
low nations. We are here not only
as Jews but primarily as citizens
of the entire world, and what we
do for Israel we do for mankind
and therefore for ourselves."
"Israel is part of the 20th cen-
tury emerging from the gloom
of centuries," Robinson said.
The fulfillment of the Kingdom
of God and the brotherhood of
man can't wait and must be
He said• there is need for con-
tinued efforts in Israel's behalf
and urged that there be no inter-
ruption in such labors.
Boyar, reporting Israel Bond
sales of $800,000,000 since the
introduction of the investment ef-
fort in 1951, said that "Bonds
wiped out poverty in Israel." He
explained that there is no unem-
ployment in Israel, that all who
are able are working at produc-
tive jobs — "because you loaned
the State $800,000,000."
Rabbi Adler praised Borman
for his modesty, his friendship,
his compassion and his loyalty to
country and faith. "He never
ceased being humble and grateful,"
Rabbi Adler said, referring to the
gratitude Borman had shown for
the privileges of being in Amer-
Dr. Schwartz similarly said to
Borman: "To men like you we
owe gratitude." He recalled Bor-
man's lifetime of efforts in behalf
of UJA as well as Bonds and said:
"In all these years this modest
man never sought the limelight, al-
ways showing love and devotion to
the Jewish people and to humani-
tarian causes the world over."
