11.etroit Native Risks Blisters
its 4-Day Lifers ustslassa _March

It may seem a strange form of
recreation for nurses to walk 25
mile's a day. for four days, up the
steep roads through the mountains
of Judea leading to Jerusalem.
But the 26 nurses and 10 male
members of the Hadassah Hospital
staff, including two doctors and a
pharmacist from Detroit, all agreed
that participation in the Four Day
March to Jerusalem was an ex-
hilarating experience.
In ancient days, a custom de-
veloped of going up to Jerusalem,
the holy city, for the spring and
autumn festivals. This has been
revived in modern Israel in the
form of the four-day march before
Passover each year. This year the
march attracted more than 12,000

participants, including many from
foreign lands.
The oldest participant was Yosef
Doren, 100, who has joined in the
march for the past eight years. He
lives in the Tel Aviv Old Age Home.
Eddy Superstine, formerly of
Wayne State University's college
of pharmacy, and now head of
Hadassah's pharmacy services, is a
veteran participant in the march,
with four medals to his credit.
Superstine explained how he felt
on the last lap of the march:
"You regain your strength, forget
about those blisters, and look about
you at the cedars, the pines, the
glorious living colors of the spring
flowers and the subtle different
shades of green. It is an unforget-
table experience to walk literally
in the footsteps of the Prophets,
in the Land of the Bible. And
with you walk thousands of others,
singing and clapping their hands
in time to their songs. There is
a wonderful spirit of camaraderie.
"At last you see Jerusalem glow-
ing on its height, looking much as
it must have looked in the days
when Solomon built the temple
It is so inspiring that the blisters
don't matter."

Adelman Named
Chairman of UJA
Collection Drive

Eddy Superstine, together with
a young Sabra fellow marcher, ar-
rives in the streets of Jerusalem,
having walked in the footsteps
of the Prophets on a four-day
march to Jerusalem. Superstine,
formerly of Detroit, is now head
of the pharmacy services of the
Hadassah - H e b r e w University
Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Jewish Groups Seek
State Aid for Day
Schools in Montreal

MONTREAL (JTA) — Requests
that the government of Quebec sup-
port Jewish day schools in Montreal
from tax funds have been made
here by the Canadian Jewish Con-
gress and the Council of Jewish
Educational Institutions of Greater
A delegation representing the
two organizations voiced those re-
quests at a conference at Quebec
City with the province minister of
education, Jean Jacques Bertrand.
The delegation told the education
minister that the Jewish day schools
were not to be considered as "pri-
vate schools in the common sense
of the term." The Jewish day
schools, it was pointed out, were
not created in opposition to the
general school system, but rather
to maintain that system in full with
the added program of courses in
Jewish religion, culture and lan-
At present, government grants
are available only to independent
secondary schools. Five Jewish high
schools here are so recognized. The
delegation maintained that the per
capita cost of education of a child
from kindergarten to Grade 11
ought to be paid from tax revenues
to the officially recognized Jew-
ish day schools for every child en-
rolled in any of the specified

Meanwhile, the Montreal Cath-
olic school commission announced ranging the Independence Day af-
that immediate steps will be taken

"to offer the population residing
on the island of Montreal, under
certain conditions, classes or even
schools which would be described
as non-confessional."

The announcement stated that
the commission adopted a resolu-
tion at its last meeting to take
such a step in order to recognize
the "rights of certain children
who cannot find in existing
schools an answer to their aspir-
ations." The commission decided
to give "top priority" to the es-

schools and classes which "would
