Flint's Young Leaders See 25 Pct. Hike
in UJA Giving Over 1967 at Dinner

At Flint's first Young Leadership Division Dinner, which for-
mally kicked-off the 1968 campaign, 44 young leaders headed by
co-chairmen Ronald Goldstein and Dr. Morton Stanley, working
together with national UJA Young Leadership Cabinet members
Michael Pelavin and Dr. Leon Rosky, raised a record $51,900 for both
the regular United Jewish Appeal and Israel Emergency Fund, as
compared to $41,695 for the group last year. This amounts to an
increase of 25 per cent. The figures were: regular campaign, S20.090
($14,810 in 1967) and emergency fund, $31,810 (526,885 in 1967).

Tourist Appalled
by Arab Lies, Praise s Israeli Efforts

A Philadelphia printer whose
parents were born in Beirut, Leba-
non, has written a book on his visit
to the Middle East in which he
calls it a "blessing" for the free
countries that Israel captured
The book, "Goodbye, Mr. Presi-
dent," by Salaam Kerban, was de-
scribed in the Yiddish Daily "The
Day" by Moshe Frank. Jacob Pines
of Flint translated the review into
Kerban, a graduate of Temple
University and a World War II
Navy veteran, relates his experi-
ences on a trip to see the birth-
place of his parents.
The printer, who incidentally
printed the book in his own Phila-
delphia shop. sent copies to the
press, members of Congress and
government officials.
Kerban writes that he took the
trip "as an Arab to see the Arab
point of view." After visiting in
both Jordan and Israel, however,
he admitted that "the Arabs are
wrong, and the leaders are com-
mitting a big crime against their
own people."
After viewing the unsanitary
conditions in the Arab refugee
camps, hearing children sing the
praises of President Gamal Abdel
Nasser and listening to officials
blaming the Israelis for every ill
("they use the camps to cast a
poor light on the Jews"), Kerban
headed for Israel.
Despite the warning of a friend
that he would find dirt and unliv-
able conditions in Jerusalem, he
learned that the Arabs were telling
lies. Kerban went to the Christian
holy places and, unlike the situa-
tion under Jordanian rule, was
admitted freely, was allowed to
take pictures and was treated with
Compared to Jordan, whose
people "are not interested in any
form of progress," Israel impressed
Kerban with the hard work and
enthusiasm of her people.

Israel demonstrated her humani-
ty in the way she treated Arab
prisoners, said Kerban, while Arabs
spend "too much time building
hatred among people."

Jews are more sure of themselves."
Kerban said he wishes that "Nasser
and Hussein would be honest with
their people."

Prior to his election as UJA's
president for 1 9 6 8 , Fisher had
served three years as UJA's gen-
eral chairman, guiding the 1965
and 1966 national UJA annual
drives to the most successful
achievements in years and leading
the UJA during the record-break-
ing and most dramatic campaign
in 1967, the year of the Six-Day

Just before the June outbreak
of hostilities, when tensions were
at their peak, Fisher visited
Israel for a survey of conditions
among the 500,000 struggling
immigrants requiring aid from
UJA - supported agencies. Even
before the war crisis reached its
climax, Fisher launched the
UJA's Emergency Fund drive,
which was magnificently success-
ful in raising unprecedented
amounts to aid the half-million
immigrants not yet fully ab-
sorbed into Israel's economy and
who were particularly hard hit
