Store Owners Come Together
for Strength on Road Back

By CHARLOTTE DUBIN

On July 23, the shopkeepers on
Twelfth and Dexter and Grand
River stood alone as their life's
work went up in flames. With a
stubborn insistence to start over
again, they came together for ad-
vice and strength Monday evening
at a meeting called by the Jewish
Community Council.
There were almost 75 persons
at the meeting in the Jewish Cen-
ter, but some of them were sym-

DANIEL COOPER, state repre
sentative, broke a bone in his foot
recently and borrowed the crutches
used by Oak Park Councilman
Mert Colburn a few years ago .. .
Dan jokingly asked his law part-
ners, Robert Feldstein and Henry
Baskin, if he had a case — since
Mert's crutches broke and Dan
reinjured his foot!

SID JACOBS, who left to live
in Culver City, Calif., 24 years ago,
visited Detroit recently for a month
of reminiscing with old friends
like Ernie Klein and this writer.
. . . It was the first time Sid had
been back to Detroit in 19 years,
and he couldn't believe his eyes
at the shocking riot aftermath of
"the old neighborhood" near 12th
St. . . . Almost brought tears to
his eyes . . . Sid's wife of 29
years is the former Goldye Man-
delbaum . They have two sons,
Michael, 29, and Donald, 27 . . .
Don is a space scientist for the
Bendix Corp. in Greenbelt, Md.,
and played a large role in the last
phase of the space programing of
Mariner Four . . . He has been
gathering material for a book he'll
write on world affairs.

PAULINE MILLER, attending
the Expo '67 Israel exhibit in
Montreal, was so impressed with
the number of visitors of all na-
tionalities waiting in line to be
served lunch—naturally featuring
Israeli dishes—that she asked hus-
band Harry to inquire of one of
the guides as to its popularity . . .
The guide informed him that since
the Israel-Arab crises, the Israel
exhibit has become the most popu-
lar of all, and that people literally
stand in line for hours waiting to
get in ... something they wouldn't
want to miss.

AFTER HIS LAST stop in San
Francisco following his around-the-
country tour teaching dance teach-
ers, Joe Cornell was the guest of
Debbie Drake, TV exercise expert
and columnist at the 24-acre ranch
in Colorado owned by her and fa-
mous race driver husband Jack
Ediljog . . . While at the ranch
they worked on a pilot film for
her coming TV show using the
latest dance fads put to exercise.

ROSE ORAM WAS taken to see
the new apartment her son and
daughter-in-law, Bill and Donna
just leased ... and was so thrilled
by it all that when they were ready
to take her home, she wasn't any-
where to be found . . . Finally,
Rose was spotted in the pool,
where she exclaimed, "I couldn't
resist this beautiful pool. And be-
sides, I had to try out my new

bathing .suit!".

Schwartz-Thav Vows
to Be Spoken in June

pathizers—staff members of the
various Jewish agencies offering
assistance, a representative of the
Small Business Administration, the
engineer son of a Chaldean grocer
whose own business was destroyed
in a fire that knew no religious
differences.

A member of the John Birch
Society also showed up to hand
out his own peculiar brand of
solace — American Opinion
pamphlets that offer simplistic
"solutions" to riots and brand
Negro leaders like Martin Luther
King as Communists. He stood
quietly in the rear of the room,
though, and no one attempted to
oust him.

Before the meeting was called to
order by Zeldon Cohen, chairman
of the neighborhoods subcommittee
of the council, there was an ex-
change of experiences, a recital,
neighbor-to-neighbor, of the events
of July 23 and the frustrating
month that has followed.
But there was no race hatred
espoused at the meeting, and the
applause that greeted one shop-
keeper's remarks recognized that
all Negro, Jew, Chaldean suf-
fered alike and must work to-
gether.
The Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service and Jewish Voca-
tional Service offered what help
they could in the areas of housing
and jobs, but those present made
it clear their primary concern is
getting back on their feet . . . as
businessmen. Here, both the He-
brew Free Loan Society and Small
Business Administration extended
financial aid.

Lawrence Gubow, chairman of
the council's committee on com-
munity relations, stressed the
importance of avoiding panic,
rather "sitting down and using
good judgment."

He pledged the Jewish Commu-
nity Council's assistance in cir-
culating the resource information
brought up at the meeting and
support for a group seeking to
petition Lansing for a special
board of review on taxation.
According to present law, store
owners, whose businesses were as-
sessed as of Dec. 31, 1966, are still
accountable for tax purposes. They
not only must pay taxes as of that
date, but they are responsible for
removal of the debris.
One group, led by Mrs. Aaron
Slootsky, is seeking to sue the city
of Detroit for what she termed
negligence of duty: inadequate po-
lice protection. She said she has
four law firms, among them Sol
Dann, offering legal assistance,
and she has 250 names of com-
plainants.
Gubow also said the council
would do what it could to assist
those who demand an investigation
of insurance company practices.
One of the loudest grievances was
by small businessmen of the trou-
bled area who could not get in-
surance to cover their losses.

Although the first stunning
weeks are over, some store own-
ers at the meeting admitted
they don't know what they will
do. One urged that a survey be
taken in the "old neighborhood"
to. determine "if the neighbors
want us back. I've been told that
they don't."

Dr. EZRA SPICEHANDLER,
director of Jewish studies at
the Jerusalem school of the
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion, author and
lecturer, begins this week a three-
week lecture tour and mission for
the Labor Zionist Organization of
America-Poale Zion and other La-
bor Zionist and community groups.
His visit will take him across the
United States discussing the rela-
tionship between the new situation
in Israel and the American Jewish
community. A former national vice
president of the LZOA, Dr. Spice-
handler was in Israel during the
Six-Day War in June. He arrived
in the United States today. His
first talk to youth will be at the
convention of llabonim Labor
Zionist Youth, at Camp Tavor,
Three Rivers, Mich., Aug. 29.

Slaughter of Two

LONDON — The murder of a
Jewish couple and the rape of a
Jewish housewife in a town in
the Georgian Soviet Republic, news
of which was totally suppressed
in the local Soviet press, was re-
ported here Tuesday from the
Soviet Union.
The report also said that police
in Kutais, the scene of the crimes,
have made no arrests.

$7, Hutzpa Take
NY Boy to Israel

NEW YORK — An "impulsive"
decision by a 14-year-old New
York boy took him to Israel and
back without a ticket and with $7
in his pocket.
Victor Rodack was returned
from Tel Aviv by El Al Israel Air-
lines after spending only $2 of his
total funds on a four-day stay.
How did he do it? He said he
took a boarding pass which had a
seat number stapled to it from the
airline counter and took that seat
on the plane. At Lydda, the Ortho-
dox Jewish youth said, a "big
shot" airline official took him home
with him, entertained him and
helped realize the boy's "greatest
dream": a tour of Jerusalem.
Victor said he knew at the time
he would get into trouble, but he
would do it allover again if he
had the same opportunity.
