Israelis Take Deep Interest in Large
Detroit Tourist Group; Reunions Play
Important Role in Pilgrimage of 248

Special to The Jewish News
TEL AVIV—Many Israelis took
a deep interest in the largest single
group of tourists to visit the Jew-
ish State—the 248 who came from
Detroit under the direction of El-
liott Elkin.
There were many reunions, the
. tourists visited with former De-
troiters now in Israel, and special
ceremonies at Kfar Silver and tree
planting by the 50 children in the
group on the outskirts of Jeru-
salem were highlights of the visit.
A few interesting reunions by
the Detroiters are reflected in the
following facts about their former
townspeople now in Israel:

Eli Cohen Corner at Kfar Silver
The students at Kfar Silver Ag-
ricultural Training School, sup-
ported and sponsored by the Zion-
ist Organiaztion of America, have
established a book corner in mem-
ory of Eli Cohen. .
All the books have been pur-
chased through funds raised by
the students working after school
in nearby Ashkelon.
The entire supply of books deals
with martyrs of the State of Is-
rael and pre-state heroes.
Mrs. Cohen and children were
present at the unveiling of the
plaque naming the corner after
their husband and father.
The Leon Kay Komisaruk chemi-
cal laboratory was dedicated at
Kfar Silver during the Detroiters'
current visit in Israel.

Detroiter Makes Good
Mark Davidson, a Central and
Wayne State University graduate,
is now sales' representative for in-
dustries for IBM (Israel) Ltd., in
Tel Aviv. He is also president of
Hitachdut Olei Amerika V'Kanada

(Association of Americans and Ca-
nadians in Israel).
The group, with 18,000 members,
4,000 of them in Tel Aviv, the re-
mainder scattered throughout the
country, was established for the
sole purpose of assisting American
and Canadian newcomers to Israel.
Davidson states that "the im-
migrant from the United States
and Canada is enabled through
our low interest loans and the help
of our members to establish him-
self in Israel in a manner he is
accustomed to."
Further information about the
association can be obtained by
writing Mark Davidson, 15 Lincoln
St., Tel Aviv, Israel.

Sol Selman Opens Studio
Sol Selman, formerly of Detroit,
has accomplished a life-long dream
of settling in Israel and opening
his own art studio.
Selman left Detroit a little over
a year ago and has gained fame
as one of the better artists in Is-
rael today.
His studio, located at 89 Water
Tower Hill, Afridar-Ashkelon, is
one of the favorite spots for tour-
ists interested in art.

A group of Detroit tourists took
time out to go to the new Israel
port of Ashdod. They saw the
Swedish freighter, Vingaland, dock
at the port. It was the first
freighter to come to the new port,
which was built with the aid of
Israel Bond dollars.
The Ashdod harbor began to
operate the week of the Detroiters'
arrival there.
The Ashdod harbor is located
28 miles south of Tel Aviv. It will
handle 600,000 tons of shipping

Four World Powers Should Join to Guarantee
ME Nations' Sovereignty, Eban Tells Histadrut

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV — A proposal that
the four world powers — the
United States, Britain, France
and the Soviet Union — combine
to guarantee the territorial integ-
rity and the sovereignty of the
nations in the Middle East was
voiced here Monday night by Abba
Eban, Israel's deputy prime minis-
ter. He said that, as matters stand
in this region now, the inaugura-
tion of a four-power doctrine in
the Middle East is needed to in-
sure Israel's continued existence.
Eban voiced his proposal as one
of the principal speakers at the
opening here of the 10th national
convention of Histadrut, the Israel
Federation of Labor, attended by
801 delegates from the entire
country. Other addresses were de-
livered by President Zalman
Shazar, who was one of the found-
ers of Histadrut in 1 9 2 0, and
Aharon Becker, secretary-general
of Histadrut. A message from
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol was
"The balance of power in the
world now is such," Eban said,
"that the major powers will
not permit changes in the exist-
ing frontiers. The Arab coun-
tries have been unable to unite
for the kind of sustained effort
that would be required in a war
with Israel. World opinion is
against the solution of problems
by war." He urged the Arab
states to make peace with Israel

Swastikas Smeared
on Buildings in W. Berlin
BERLIN (JTA)—Swastikas were
found to have been smeared on the
walls of several buildings in the
Charlottenburg district of West
Berlin. Similar defacements were
found in the same area several
times in October and November of
this year.
Thus far, no arrests have been
made in connection with these anti-
Semitic daubings.
An exhibition on Auschwitz was
opened here Sunday near the Zoo
Station. The site is near the center
of this city.

JDC to Give ORT $1,950,000 in 1966

school system in the country, will
receive by far the largest portion
of the 1966 JDC grant. About 25,-
000 persons are expected to re-
ceive industrial and technical in-
struction in these schools this year.
The JDC allocation includes pro-
vision for substantial funds to he
used by ORT in France for voca-
tional services for Algerian and
other North African refugees. ORT
trade schools, apprentice programs
for youth and special courses for
adults have been greatly enlarged
to meet the needs of 150,000 ar-
rivals. These measures have been
insufficient, however, and will have
to be expanded in the coming year.

the fact that each of us owes an
honest and proper day's work for
his wages."
In his address, Becker stated
that Histadrut should not re.
linquish any more of its func.
tions to the state. Histadrut's
independence of action, he af-
firmed, "is an axiom that re-
quires neither discussion nor
dispute." He appealed to all
friendly labor organizations to
use their influence to bring
about peaceful coexistence and
peace in the Middle East.
During the convention's opening
ceremonies, 122 delegates repre-
senting H e r u t and the Liberal
Party walked out demonstratively
when the orchestra played the
"Internationale," the anthem of
international socialism.

NEW YORK—The Joint Distri-
bution Committee will provide $1,-
950,000 during 1966 toward the
overseas vocational training pro-
gram of ORT, the Organization for
Rehabilitation through Training,
it was announced by officials of
both organizations.
This is $100,000 more than the
amount allocated in 1965, reflect-
ing the increased need for voca-
tional training overseas, especially
in France and Israel.
The grant will help finance tech-
nical education and economic re-
habilitation activities of ORT in
Europe, Israel, North Africa, Iran
and India. More than 40,000 per-
sons are expected to receive such
assistance in these and other areas
during the coming year.

The convention, held at Mann
Auditorium here, opened with a
flourish as President Shazar en-
tered to greet the assemblage.
Diplomats from both Eastern and
Western countries were present
as guests. Also attending was

Haekkerup, who is currently visit-
ing Israel. All rose as trumpets

Shazar told the convention that
he brought "the blessings of the
state to the greatest organized
force in the country, the backbone
of the nation." He recalled his par-
ticipation in Histadrut's first or-
ganizing conference, in Haifa, 45
years ago, saying:
"Neither official Zionism nor
organized religion was represented
at that conference. Those who
were there — and those who were
not there — determined the trend
of future events." He appealed to
all political parties in Israel "to
overcome disruptive trends" and
called for "unity among all work-
ers in Israel."
Eshkol, s t ill confined to his
home with influenza, sent a mes-
sage to the convention. Stressing
that the private and the national
sectors of Histadrut "are essential
to the national economy," he
"During the coming years, we
shall have to re-examine thorough-
ly our economic practices all along
the line. It is a matter of life and
death for us to increase produc-
tivity and output and to establish
