I go to AKIVA becabse:


We must learn Hebrew just so
And we do it with gusto.
The teachers are all helpful
For this we are grateful.
No, school needn't be dreadful
You see, Akiva's quite intellectual.
The students learn their places
In the Jewish and American races.
There is something about Akiva we'll never
forget as each successive year our fu-
ture helps set.
So our school we remember, even July to Sep-
tember because of the very special way we
are taught each day.

Image of Jews' Success
Doesn't Hold True Abroad

NEW YORK (JTA) — Evelyn
Peters, chief consultant on day
care for the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee, said
on the WNYC "New York Tomor-
row" program, the image of Jews
as all being economically success-
ful clashed with reality. "There
are still many thousands of Jews
overseas where the father earns
no more than one dollar a day,"
she declared.
As a result, she continued, in
many areas of the world Jewish
philanthropic agencies must con-
tinue and enlarge their programs,
especially in child care. She ob-
served, there are still 55,000 Jews
in Tunisia and Morocco ,with 1,000
children in JDC Day Care centers.

Mid East Crisis Draws
Record Parade Marchers

NEW YORK—The crisis in the

Middle East has prompted record
participation in this year's Salute
to Israel Parade. More than 300
schools, youth groups and commu-
nity centers have indicated that
they will turn out record numbers
of marchers on May 10, to ex-
press their support of Israel and
to celebarte Israel's 22nd birth-
This year's theme, "Israel:
Blossoming From 4,000-y e a r
Roots", will be presented by floats,
costumes, banners and other gra-
phic props that will unfold the
story of the Jewish people and
their historic ties to the land of

Ironwood is as far west as St.
Louis, Missouri; Port Huron is
as far east as Greenville, South
Carolina, or Ashville, North Caro-
lina; Hancock is farther north
than Montreal, Canada.

MAX JANOWSKI graduated from the Scharwenka Con-
servatory in Berlin. In 1933 he won a contest sponsored
by the Imperial Academy of Music in Tokyo, Japan.
He was awarded the title of Professor of Music and lived
there 4 years, teaching and concertizing. In 1937 he came
to the United States and in 1938 became the director
of music at K.A.M. Temple in Chicago. For more than
30 years, K.AM. Temple has been the standard by
which other congregations have measured their musical
achievements. Many congregations who were eager to
improve their music curriculum came to Professor
Janowski for advice.

CANTOR MAURICE LEVY, son of a Rabbi, began his
formal education in Hebrew liturgy by singing in choirs
of such world famous Cantors as Zavel Kvartin, Pierre
Pinchik, David Roitman. He later continued his educa-
tion at the Hebrew Theological College in Chicago and
the Torah V'daath Seminary in New York.
Cantor Levy is gifted with a fine lyric tenor voice and
has made numerous appearances on the concert stage,
radio and television in programs of Jewish music.
Cantor Levy is considered by his colleagues as one of
the outstanding young cantors of his generation.

BEATRICE HORWITZ, daughter of the noted Cantor
-An.shel Freedman, spent her formative years in Israel
during which time she made her first stage appearances
as accompanist to her father. Since her return to the
United States, she has been one of the leading soloists
with several large Chicago synagogues and now occupies
that position with the K.A.M. Temple Choir. She is fre-
quently heard on radio, television and the concert stage
and is a solo on the album "Art Enchanting Evening
with the Cantors" and the recording "Sbma Koleynu."
Having been raised in the song-filled household of a
Cantor, Beatrice Freedman Horwitz continues the family
tradition with her glowing contralto voice and sensitive
interpretations of Jewish, Liturgical and Israeli music.
