Israeli School to Honor Danes
This is the artist's concept of the cultural and educational center
to be constructed in Jerusalem in honor of the Danish people who
courageously rescued their Jewish compatriots during the Nazi occu-
pation. Ground was broken this week for the Denmark School, first
unit of the complex, a project of the Israel Education Fund, a
program of the United Jewish Appeal.

COPENHAGEN (JTA) — De-
tailed plans for the construction
in Israel of a $1,000,000 high school
as a tribute to the Danish people
for their rescue of almost all of
this country's Jews from the Nazi
holocaust in 1943 were announced
here by the UJA-Israel Education
Fund at a reception for the donors
to the Fund given by Crown
Princess Margareth, Regent of
Denmark. She greeted the group,

Heading the delegation, and in-
forming Denmark's heir to the
,) throne of the plans for the erec-
tion of a Denmark School in Israel,
was Charles J. Bensley, president
of the IEF. He presented the
Crown Princess with a copy of a
scroll to be placed in the new
school's cornerstone, which was
laid this week. The text of the
scroll cites "the brave people
of Denmark who embraced, at high
(h uman cost, an additional national
burden: The rescue of the Jews
of that country during the Nazi
Ground-breaking ceremonies for
the Denmark School were held
Wednesda y, Bensley said, in
the heavily-populated southern belt
area of Jerusalem, at Katamon.
The institution will be a com-
prehensive high school and will

mother-child guidance clinic. The
library is being sponsored by

Ottawa UJA Chairman
Asks New Giving Setup
OTTAWA (JTA)—New methods
of contributing to the local United
Jewish Appeal and new standards
of giving, have been suggested by
Arnold Lithwick, general chairman
of the 1965 UJA drive here.
He reported that, whereas the
1965 goal had been $395,000, or 10
per cent above the amount
achieved in 1964, the actual re-
sults "will not exceed a total of
$332,000, which is 7 per cent less"
than the amount raised in 1964.
One reason for the fall-off, he said,
was "two major losses, totaling
He proposed that standards of
giving be based on a percentage
of each Jewish contributor's total
income. He suggested the following
ratios: Those earning up to $8,000
a year should give 3 per cent to
charity, of which 2 per cent would
be for Jewish causes, and 1 per
cent for other causes; earners in
the category of $8,000 to $15,000
would give 5 per cent, of which 3
per cent would be for Jewish
causes; earners of between $15,000
and $20,000 would give a total of
6 per cent, with 4 per cent going
to Jewish causes; "men in the
$20,000-and-over bracket should be
able to take advantage of their
full 10 per cent allowable deduc-
tion, 7 per cent to Jewish and 3
per cent to non-Jewish causes."
