Good and Bad Children
Children, you are very little,
And your bones are very brittle;
If you would grow great and stately,
You must try to walk sedately.
You must still be bright and quiet,
And content with simple diet;
And remain, through all bewild'ring,
Innocent and honest children.
Happy hearts and happy faces,
Happy play in grassy places—
That was how, in ancient ages,
Children grew to kings and sages.
But the unkind and the unruly,
And the sort who eat unduly,
They must never hope for glory—
Theirs is quite a different story
Cruel children, crying babies,
All grow up as cheese and gabies,
Hated, as their age increases,
By their nephews and their nieces.
—Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

Directed ORT School
PARIS — Jacques Bramson, di-
rector of the 1,500 student ORT
school in Paris, the largest in the
ORT network in Europe, died here
last week. An engineer, he had
been associated with the Organiza-
tion for Rehabilitation Through
Training as a teacher and admin-
istrator for 26 years.
The school he headed, situated
in the industrial suburb of Mon-

as one of the foremost technical
institutes in Western Europe. The
building was a gift of the Inter-
national Ladies Garment Workers

and his services in the rehabili-

NEW YORK (JTA)—There have
been some anti-Semitic activities
in recent times in Australia, but
they have stemmed from a tiny
fraction of the community, report-
ed Nathan Beller, vice president of
the Victorian Jewish Board of
Deputies and a councillor of the
Executive Council of Australian
Jewry, which is affiliated with the
World Jewish Congress.
In a report to the World Jewish
Congress on Australia's 75,000
Jews and their community struc-
ture, Beller added that the import
of hate literature from abroad - was
under surveillance, in an effort
to use whatever legal process is
available to stop its transmission
through the mails. Beller said:
"We are of the opinion that anti-
Semitism is not a Jewish problem
primarily, but one that affects the
way of life, the liberty and free-
dom of every Australian."
The Australian Jewish leader
reported that the two main cen-
ters of Australian Jewry are Mel-
bourne, with about 35,000 Jews,
and Sydney, with about 32,000. The
remaining 8,000 to 10,000 Jews, he
said, are scattered in Perth, Ade-
laide, Brisbane, Canberra and
Michigan's total land area of
35,494,080 acres is larger than
Greece, larger than Switzerland
and Portugal combined, and near-
ly five times the size of Belgium.

Do kids like ice cream?
The answer, of course, is a rousing YES! Model for model, electric
dryers cost up to $20 less than gas dryers. And every electric dryer
is backed by Edison's No-Charge repair service. No charge for any
electrical parts. No charge for labor. Edison is the only utility company
in this area that offers no-charge repair service.
Can you get this kind of worry-free assurance with a gas dryer?
Sure—with a manufacturer's repair service policy. But it will cost you
up to $120 over the first five years of operation alone!
One thing more. Edison's No-Charge repair service applies even if
you don't buy your dryer from Edison—so long as the dryer is electric
and you get your electricity from Edison. And if you buy now from a
participating dealer, the low price you pay includes the cost of wiring,
if any's needed. So when you add it up, an electric dryer can save
you up to $140 in just a few years. That can
keep the kids in ice cream a good long time.
