Supplementing Safran's report,
Commending the efforts of Al-
Max M. Fisher, national chair-
fred Deutsch, chairman of the
man of the United Jewish Ap-
Allied Jewish Campaign; Paul
peal, in the presentation to Abra-

ham and Tom Borman of the

annual Fred M. Butzel Award,
similarly spoke about "the chal-
lenge and achievement" of the
past year.

He addressed the recipients of
this year's award as "two distin-
guished brothers whose life and
work have been pillars in the de-
velopment and achievements of
our community and in the civic,
business and philanthropic life of
our city."
Fisher outlined the activities of
the Bormans and listed the num-
erous boards on which they serve
and the generous gifts they had
made in recent years.
Tom and Abraham responded
to the honors accorded them —
Tom by reminiscing about the
many prominent Detroiters he
had befriended during the years
of his services in Detroit; and
Abraham by stating briefly that
he had received many awards
and that "the one I'll cherish
the best will be the Butzel
Award."
Hyman Safran, Dr. Peter G.
Shifrin and Mrs. Irving Steinman
were re-elected members of the
board of governors of the Federa-
tion. Newly-elected members of
the board are: Avern L. Cohn,
Samuel Frankel, Joseph H. tack-
ier, Max J. Pincus, Mrs. Arthur
H. Rice and Erwin S. Simon.
The slate of nominees was pre-
sided by Morris Garvett, chairman
of the nominating committee.

Safran reviewed the history of
the Home and stated:

"The Jewish Home for Aged is
but one of the important spokes
in the wheel of our total concern
for the elderly. We have with the
passing of time come to recognize
the importance and dignity of each
single individual. Not every senior
citizen stands in equal need of an
institution. For this reason we have
developed a whole complex of nec-
essary services through the Jew-
ish Center, Sinai Hospital, Jewish
Family Service and others. Their
purpose is to support our elderly
as they strive to live out their
lives to the fullest, with respect
and dignity.
"We strive ever to bring from
our drawing boards into reality the
concepts and the dreams of our

Egyptians, Indians Map
Presentation of Tito Plan

NEW DELHI (JTA) — Dr.
Mahmoud Fawzi, one of Egypt's
top diplomats, concluded a series
of strategy talks with members
of the Indian government on how
to advance the Tito plan for set-
tlement of the Arab-Israel dispute
in the United Nations General
Assembly.

Proposals advanced in President
Tito's name by the Yugoslav
diplomats were accepted by Egypt
as a basis for a solution but were
rejected by Israel which had not
been consulted in their formula-
tion. Under the Tito plan, Israel
would withdraw to its pre-June 5
borders; the Arab states would
make a general declaration of
adherence to United Nations char-
ter provisions on the sovereignty
of member states without, how-
ever, mentioning Israel by name;
Israel would be given transit rights
through the Strait of Tiran, and
ships flying the flags of other na-
tions—but not that of Israel—
carrying cargo for Israel, would
be permitted through the Suez
Canal.

social planners. We new have un-
der active development such an
idea, a much needed apartment
residence for the aged. In addi-
tion, we have made much head-
way with an idea for the Justice
Henry M. Butzel village at Camp
Tamarack, designed for senior cit-
izens and their summertime
needs."

Lefton said "association with
the Federation is on of mutual
cooperation." He described bow,
with government cooperation,

able to the aged. He reported
that the 470 residents in both
facilities of the Home for Aged

Sonnenblick, in a brief greeting,
said it was "easy to be a good di-
rector when you have such a good
board of officers to work with and
a Federation that provides the
proper' help."
To mark the occasion the Ham-
otzi was recited by a resident of
the Home for Aged, Sigmund Ros-
enfeld.

"If banks wish to change the
pattern of their management re-
cruiting to include minority per-
sonnel, they will have to modify
their passive attitudes," Abram
told the bankers. "They will have
to take active steps not only to
bring their companies to the at-
tention of these groups but also
to present to them convincing evi-
dence that barriers to promotion
do not exist."

The largest airborne invasion
ever was the Anglo-American as-
sault of three division (34,000
men), with 2,800 aircraft and 1,600
gliders, near Arnhem, in the
Netherlands, on Sept. 17, 1944.

NEW YORK — An American
Banker's Association Workshop
was told here Tuesday by a Jewish
leader that the remedies required
to encourage Jews and other min-
ority group members to enter the
banking field "go beyond compli-
ance with laws against discrimina-
tion and beyond general policies
of equal opportunity."
Morris B. Abram, president of
the American Jewish Committee,
commended the 1,500 bankers "for
squarely facing the ugly fact of
racial, ethnic and religious dis-
crimination that has been all too
common in American industry."
But he also urged them to present
to members of minority groups
"convincing evidence that barriers
to promotion do not exist." George
