`My Daughte r the Actress'


Never underestimate the pro-
phetic powers of a Jewish mother.
Two summers ago, Yiddish thea-
ter great Fraydele Oysher (whose
husband, Harold
Sternberg, sings
with the Metro-
politan Opera,
and whose late
brother was the
renowned cantor,
Moshe Oysher)
was on the West
Coast with her
manager and her
daughter, Marilyn
The three wereFrayedele Oysher
in a car, and the radio was playing
one of the songs from "Funny
Girl," the hit musical which had
opened a couple of months before
on Broadway.
"Marilyn is going to play the
lead in that show," announced Miss
Oysher, whose dreams of stardom
for her daughter actually began
nearly 20 years before, when Mari-
137n, a precocious 2-year-old, as-
tonished a group of relatives by
singing, in its entirety, the Na-
tional Anthem.


Flattered by her mother's con-
fidence but skeptical of the ac-
curacy of the prediction, Marilyn
simply patted her mother's arm
and looked at her with the pa-
tient understanding with which
the young often regard their
parents. Marilyn was doing rela-
tively well in her career as a

singer and a mimic (she could
do 37 impersonations) but she
was all too aware that she was a
long way from landing one of
the most coveted roles in mu-
sical comedy history.

But Fraydele Oysher continued
to dream, she knew. So, she's not
too surprised (delighted, yes!) that
Marilyn Michaels plays Fanny
Brice in the national company of
"Funny Girl" coming to Detroit's
Fisher Theater in March.
Like her mother, with whom she
has often performed since she was
7, Marilyn Michaels is diminutive,
sprightly and devoted to show
business. She has been described
by Sammy Davis as "the closest
thing to a perfect singer" he's ever
heard, and has won the unbridled
admiration of men like Jackie
Gleason, Johnny Carson and Ed
It was Sullivan, in fact, who first
launched Marilyn into the national
spotlight. He saw her perform on
the "On Broadway Tonight" show
—her television debut—and then
interrupted the Sternberg family's
Grossin . ger's vacation with a long
distance telephone call from Las
Vegas. He wanted Marilyn to
appear with him in a show orig-
inating from Harrah's. She did so
well at that engagement, that Sul-
livan signed her up for six apear-
ances on his Sunday night televi-
sion show,

The rest, more or less, is his-
tory. Marilyn began to play the
major night clubs around the
nation: the Copa in New York,
the Gai Paris in Chicago and
Sahara in Las Vegas. Then, she
received a call from Martin
Tahse, whose corporation is pro-
ducing the national company. He
wanted her to audition for Fanny

instance. On the first day of re-
hearsal he turned to lyricist Bob
Merrill and director Lawrence
Kasha and said: "That national
company of "Funy girl" will do for
Marilyn Michaels what the national
company of "Annie Get Your Gun"
did for Mary Martin.
But Fraydele Oysher knew it all
the time.

Commemorate Weizmann
As Architect of Israel
in New LP Recording

The late Chaim Weizmann, Is-
rael's first president, influenced
the thinking of President Kennedy,
according to a recorded statement
by Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
This statement, part of an L.P.
record released by Profile Records,
says : "There were individual leaders
who gave President Kennedy some
direction and some guidance and
some inspiration and I know that
President Weizmann was one of
them. President Kennedy looked
upon President Weizmann as one
of the great leaders of his lifetime
who had changed the course of
events of mankind through his
own strength of character, his own
persistence, and is own courage."
Senator Kennedy is one of 17
participants in the record "Chaim
Weizmann, Israel and the Jewish
People," which tells the dramatic
story of Weizmann, architect of the
State of Israel. The other partici-
pants are: President Lyndon B.
Johnson, President Harry S. Tru-
man, Sir Winston Churchill, David
Ben-Gurion, Mrs. Vera Weizmann,

bassador Adlai E. Stevenson, Eliahu

B-G, Eshkol Go at It
in Parliament Debate

Premier David Ben-Gurion, now an
opposition deputy in Isreal's par-
liament, heckled his chosen suc-
cessor, Premier Levi. Eshkol Feb.
16, for the first time during par-
liamentary debate. The Premier
replied tartly, touching off a shout-
ing match by deputies of the Is-.
rael Workers Party (Rafi), the dis-
sident group formed by Ben-Gurion.
The subject of the debate was
the site of this year's Independence
Day parade, which the government
has decided will be Haifa. In ear-
lier years, when it was held in
Jerusalem, it evoked complaints
from Jordan that a parade so near
Jordan was provocative.
Ben-Gurion heckled the Premier
loudly, interrupting the Premier's
statement and declaring loudly
"What you say, sir, is untrue."
The Premier referred to his
critic as "this gentleman." Rafi
deputies thereupon interrupted the
Premier with shouts that "he has

a name."
