Friday, May 29, 1970-15

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An Israeli
Army officer said that Israeli
soldiers entering the armed serv-
ices today are as brave and will-
ing to accept hardships and dan-
gerous assignments as their broth-

Arad, the Army's chief educational
Col. Arad told newsmen at a

We take this opportunity to acknowledge our gratitude to our Conductor Don Frohman,
who has for 40 years so devotedly and selflessly given of himself and of his inexhaustible
knowledge of music. His musical talents, his skillful guidance, the patience and endurance he
maintained during the course of our existence, has not been in vain. He has instilled in us
a love and appreciation of the best in music for which he hos our deep admiration and
our loyalty.

May he continue to inspire and enrich our lives with his fathomless musical knowledge,
and may he enjoy many more fruitful years ahead, so that we may continue to benefit from
his dynamic and stimulating guidance.
