Allied Jewish Campaign Sets Another
High Record id. Gifts of $2,369,500
Made at Initial Leaders' Gathering
Hopes Sustained that '67 Drive
Will Reach Goal of $6,000,000

b Jewish Campaign, a group of about 60 large
contributors, meeting Tuesday evening at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Louis Hamburger, 27881 Lakehills Drive, Franklin,
as members of the "Pace-Setters" group in the drive, con-
tributed the sum of $2,369,500.
Marking an 11 per cent increase over last year's gifts by the
same group — in some instances these gifts marked four and five
increases over a period of three years' giving — these contributions
may have set the highest record for philanthropic participation in
Detroit's major fund-raising event by the top givers in this community.
Alfred Deutsch, chairman of the 1967 campaign, who presided
at the meeting, expressed confidence that "this good beginning
augurs well for our hopes that the $6,000,000 goal will be attained."

At the opening "Pace-Setters" campaign meeting, are (from

With Louis Broido of New York, national chairman of the
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, as guest speaker,
the opening event of the 1967 drive, which is considered traditionally
as serving unofficially to open the campaign, was marked by several
brief addresses by local leaders.
Max M. Fisher, national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal,
the major beneficiary from the local drive, emphasized the urgency
of current demands for action in behalf of Israel, in addition to the
numerous demands for service to local and national causes.
Others who shared in the evening's program included the three
pre-campaign co-chairmen, Maxwell Jospey, Max Shaye and Irving
Rose; as well as Hyman Safran, president of the Jewish Welfare
Federation; and Philip Stollman, national UJA leader and head of
the American Committee for Bar-Ilan University.

"The UJA is not a philanthropy but a great humanitarian effort
for relief and rehabilitation," Broido said. He commended the
gathering for "caring" for Jewry's needs, and declared: "By caring,
you make a contribution to Jewish life."
Fisher, who introduced Broido, supplemented his speech by
indicating that the UJA must raise $10,000,000 more this year because
of the depression that has hit Israel and the need to provide many
services which are burdening Israel. He emphasized that Israel,
pressed for military action, provides fully for military needs, but
in other services gives $2 for every $1 contributed by American
Jews to setle immigrants from lands of oppression.
All campaign divisions now are setting machinery into motion
for the solicitation of 30,000 potential contributors to the current
drive. The official opening of the drive has been set for March 22.
JERUSALEM — Israel will "explore all political possibilities to prevent further de-
terioration" of the situation on the Syrian border, but "if all these steps do not help, we
shall talk to the Syrians in the only language they understand," Prime Minister Levi Eshkol
warned Tuesday night.
Eshkol voiced that warning in an address at Tel Aviv, before a seminar of Israeli
academic personnel affiliated with the Mapai Party. He went to Tel Aviv immediately after
his address to the Knesset where he had stated that the "next few days" would be de-
cisive in determining whether the Middle East pacification steps taken by the United
Nations and the major powers would help restrain Syria's continuing aggressions.
The premier told the seminar that Israel's army has been strengthened greatly in
the last three years. He referred not only to Syria's aggressions of the last three weeks
but also the three-year-old Arab campaign for diversion of the Jordan River waters so
as to deny Israel's use of Jordan River waters for irrigation of the upper reaches of the
"Our struggle against the diversion of the waters of the Jordan River sources is not
yet concluded," he stated. "The Syrians are still holding to their diversion plans, although
their preparatory work for diversion of the Jordan headwaters is taking place at sites
distant from our border."
Israeli political circles here noted Wednesday that, for the first time since the dawn
of 1967, two full days have passed in complete peace and calmness on Israel's northern
borders. This fact is attributed to two separate factors. One is the speedy and energetic
action by Secretary-General U Thant, of the United Nations, in insisting on efforts by
both Syria and Israel to halt further escalation of the danger of large-scale war between
the two countries. The other factor is centered on the heavy winter rains which have pre-
vented further cultivation of lands in the disputed border zones, especially in the - de-
militarized zones between Syria and Israel.
Observers here doubt whether Thant's intervention will result in lasting effects,
since it deals only with one specific issue, land cultiva-
tion, while avoiding the basic problem of Syria's continu-
ance of its avowed intention to press further aggressions
on Israel's borders and within Israel.
