claimed by 500 people who gather-
ed to pay him honor for his many
communal services, and the Jew-

paying honor to the Simons'.
In his response to the encomia,
Simons recalled that he was pro-
vided with coins by his mother to
help fill her Blue and White JNF
Box that was among the prized
items in their home.
Pointing to the popularity of the
JNF among the masses of the Jew-
ish people, he pointed out that "the
Jewish National Fund augments
the gigantic fund-raising cam-
paigns we Detroit Jews put on
each year of which over half goes

religious affairs, told Parliament
that he planned to ask the Cabi-

institutions in Israel now have
this privilege and that there was
no reason for discriminating
against the Jewish institutions.

EORGE ORWELL, author of the memorable "1984," once
told an interviewer that 'the principal reason he wrote
books was that his old fifth-grade teacher might see his
work and be remorseful
that she'd misjudged him.
After Moss Hart had
made a fortune with a
series of Broadway smash
hits, he, too, journeyed
up to the Bronx to show
his old public school prin-
cipal (a man who had
predicted nothing but di-
saster for him) h o w
wrong that estimate had
been. The principal rec-
ognized him at once. "Ah,
Hart," he rasped. "What
are you coming round
here for again? You're
wasting your time. I won't lift a finger to help you.
There's a town in Illinois named Normal and another not too
many miles away named—no kidding—Oblong. And when a boy
from one of these communities chose as his bride a girl from the
other, the headline writer for a Chicago newspaper did just what
you'd expect him to: he captioned his story, "NORMAL BOY
WEDS OBLONG GIRL."
At the San Diego zoo, Neil Morgan would have you believe that
an amorous tiger was rebuffed by his wife, who demanded harsh-
ly, "Where have you been prowling? You reek of gasoline."
At Newark Airport, Jackie Curtiss heard a newly commissioned
pilot tell a stewardess, "I just saved the lives of 47 passengrs. I
refused to take off."
