In an urgent telephonic appeal
to Detroit Jewry from Jerusalem
and Miami Beach, an Israeli and
an American leader called upon
Detroit Jewry, at noon Tuesday,
for speedy action, through the Is-
rael Bond Organization, to assure
action for Israel's economic secur-
ity.
Golda Meir, speaking from Is-
rael, and Sam Rothberg, national
Israel Bond Chairman, speaking
from Florida, over a hook-up that
connected a number of other cities
with Detroit, indicated the gravity
of the present situation and asked
for unified efforts to protect Israel
and to provide aid to assist in Is-
rael's economic development. More
than 70 workers for the Israel
Bond cause heard the appeal here
at the Israel Bond office on Green-
field.
