Veteran Correspondent Martin Agronsky
to Address Annual UJA Campaign Dinner

Dr. Leon Rosky, chairman of the
2970 Flint United Jewish Appeal,
announced that Martin Agronsky,
veteran correspondent and broad-
cast journalist, will be guest speak-
er at the annual campaign dinner
6;30 p.m. March 11 at Country
Squire Restaurant.
Agronsky is a correspondent and
broadcast journalist of nearly 25
years' experience. Before he joined
CBS News in April 1964, he had
been with NBC since 1957 and,
prior to that, an ABC correspond-
ent for 14 years.
He formerly was anchor man on
CBS News and is presently with
the Washington Post-Newsweek
television and radio network. His
career as a reporter and corres-
pondent has taken him into war-
time action; to the Adolph Eich-
mann trial, for which his coverage
won him an Alfred L duPont
Award; and to eight successive
national political conventions
where his reporting won him a
George Foster Peabody Award for
Outstanding reporting and a Na-
tional Headliners Award. Born and
reared in Philadelphia, Agronsky
is a graduate of Rutgers Univers-

and shortly afterward began
writing free lance in Europe.
He covered the last days of the
Spanish Civil War for American



and British papers, then served
in Paris for International News
Service for a short period.
In 1940, Agronsky joined NBC
as its Balkan correspondent and
later became a war correspondent
for the network. He covered the
British Army in Libya, the RAF in
bombing raids over Italy, and in
the Far East covered the Japanese
attack on Singapore and General
Douglas MacArthur in Australia.
In 1943, he joined ABC as a Wash-
ington correspondent, a post he
held for the next 14 years.
Agronsky rejoined NBC News in
1957, remaining in Washington,
where he reported regularly on
television and radio and undertook
such special assignments as cover-
age of the Eichmann trial and the
signing of the test ban treaty in
Moscow. He served as president
of the Radio and Television Corres-
pondents Association in 1953.
Reservations for the annual cam-
paign dinner can be made through
the council office, 767-5922.

Women's Role in UJA Campaign
Stressed by Division Co-Chairmen

Dr. Leon Rosky, chairman of
the 1970 Flint United Jewish Ap-
peal Campaign, announced the ap-
pointment of Mesdames Sam Cos-
sman, Arnold Schaffer and Emil
Schupack as co-Chairmen of the
women's division.
Associate chairmen, who will
serve as general chairmen next
year, are Mesdames Marvin
Heidenrich, Leon Rosky and Sol
Schafer.
In accepting this position, Mrs.
Cossman said, "The women of
Flint will be called upon to play
a key role in our campaign to
meet the spiraling humanitarian
needs in Israel's continuing battle
for survival. Our role will be to
help spread the story of our own
community functions and Israel's
enormous needs as well as to
solicit gifts."
