'Spring Cleaning' of Blue and White Boxes
Scheduled by JNF for April 17 Through May 3

The spring clearance of the Jew-
ish National Fund blue-white box
will begin April 17, according to
an announcement by Mesdames
Abraham Scheuer and Philip S10-
movitz, co-chairmen of the JNF
blue-white box committee.
Continuing through May 3, vol-
unteer workers who are members
of Hadassah, Mizrachi Fanny Gluck
and Sisters of Zion chapters, Miz-

rachi of Oak Park, Northwest Child
Rescue Women, Pioneer Women
and Women's Auxiliary of JNF,
will ring the bells of over 4,500
homes, to clear blue-white boxes.
Members of youth groups also will
participate.
Mesdames Scheuer and Slomo-
vitz pointed out that the blue box
was the oldest of the traditional
fund-raising means of the Keren

A Bitter Herb Before Pesach

By CHARLOTTE HYAMS

One of Mother's friends called
about a week ago and said, "Ger-
trude, there's a terrific lecture I
want you to hear."
"I can't go," Mother said, "It's
Erev Pesach and I have a million
and one things to do."
"But, Gertrude," she said,
"what's so much to do? I made
Pesach weeks ago, went down to
Florida and just got back. What's
so much to do? And anyway,
doesn't your daughter help you?"
Mother sighed. "Yes, she does."
S'he was thinking of my cupboard
cleaning.

While her friend is sitting
back, absorbing the words of
some lecturer (whose wife is no
doubt back home making Pe-
sach), I am sitting cross-legged
in the cupboard, warm soapsuds
seeping into my sneakers, into
my slacks leg, into the collar of
my blouse, into my very con-
sciousness.

And into my pipe dream (this
is the cupboard under the sink)
come the words from beyond:
"Every corner. Make sure there
isn't a crumb left in any crack."
Now this, to me, is the cardinal
insult. Who's been cleaning this
same cupboard for the past two
decades or so? Elijah? Why, I
know every cranny of this cup-
board from the pan-cover hook I
jabbed my arm with in 1954 to
the pipe joint I bumped my head
on in 1951, 1954 (that was a bad
year), 1959 and 1965.

In recent years, we've turned to
the most civilized means yet de-
vised by man for the lining of
kitchen cupboards: self-stick.

No product I have ever seen
so fully carries out what self-
stick lining claims to do: it
sticks to itself, yourself, my-
self, anyone's self who happens
to be passing by the cupboard.

doesn't fit. No amount of premeas-
uring with a 72-inch folding ruler
that always unfolds into my eye,
no amount of careful cutting ever
yields the exact measurement of
this cell. One end of the paper
is always riding up one side of
the cupboard, and the other side
looks like a Bar Mitzvah boy whose
trousers don't fit.
But I figure it won't matter;
soon, there'll be a big box of matzo
covering that bad spot. No one
will ever know.
No question about it, it's more
fun that going to Florida Erev
Pesach.

of the box-holder and his family

early purchase of land in Palestine

In addition to clearing, the vol-
unteer collectors will place boxes
in new homes. Box-holders may
arrange for special clearance (or
if their boxes are not cleared by
May 3) by calling the JNF office,
UN 4-2767. Box-holders are eligible
for various annual national awards
given by the JNF:
First prize, a round-trip to Is-
rael; 20 second prizes and 25 third
prizes, Israeli art objects; and 25
fourth prizes, outstanding books of
Jewish interest.
There are also incentives for
volunteers—three prizes of Israeli
art objects to the three volunteers
in each of the 20 major communi-
ties who will have cleared the larg-
est number of boxes.
And, all volunteers who have
cleared 50 boxes or a minimum of
$250, will receive citations of
honor.
