Shaye Displays Art of Giving

Miss Toreby for 1170, Marilyn Petty (right), is welcomed by
Dorothy Shaye and her artist husband, Max, during a preview at
Shaye's donated paintings in the Fisher Building office of Detroit
Bank and Trust. All proceeds from the 40 paintings will swell the
coffers of metropolitan Detroit's United Foundation. The paintings,
which include watercolors, oils and lithographs, are on display and
for sale through Nev. 5-during bulling hours (10 a.m.-3 p.m. Mon-
day, thkough Thursdays and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Fridays). The Sbayes,
who live on Lake Hills Dr., Franklin, have a studio and gallery
attached to their home. Shaye, who presented two of his paintings to
the city of Southfield in 1969, has never accepted money for his
work. He is one of four artists whose Lithographs are included In the
American Gallery Arts collection. The OF could realize more than
310,000 from the sale of Shaye's art .work to help in its support of
nearly 200 service and health agencies.

The original cure for gonorrhea
was established by Neissner.
Digitalis used for heart disease

To cure diphtheria Bela Schick

Nobel Prize winner Otto Levi had
research results that have restored
sanity to countless numbers whose
nerve systems broke down and
were sent to insane asylums. The
discoverer of the special nutritional
value of using vitamins was still
another Jew, Kasimir Funk. Not
too long ago the Jew, Jonas Salk
discovered the vaccine for polio
that has already saved crippling
hundred of thousands—the antipo-

Soviet Jewish Writers
Comment on M.E. Peace

LONDON (JTA) — A group of
Soviet Jewish writers have called
upon Jewish writers in other
countries to help further Arab-
Israeli friendship and have ex-
pressed satisfaction with the cease
fire now in effect in the Middle
That public commentary on a
foreign policy matter, rare for
ordinary Soviet citizens, appeared
in the current edition of Sovietish
Heimland, officially authorized
Jewish periodical, which arrived
The writers said, "We call upon
Jewish writers the world over to
help create an atmosphere of
friendship between Israel and the
Arab nations. Millions of men, wo-
men and children have a vital in-
terest in peace in the Middle East
and they include Jews as well as
The writers said they supported
the cease fire because it "opens
the way for a just peace between
Arab countries and Israel based on
the Security Council resolution of
Nov. 22, 1967.
Among the signers were such
members of the Soviet Communist
establishment as Aaron Vergelis,
Abraham Gontar, Motel Grubian,
Shika Griz and Sonia Frei. The
group also included Meir Yellin,
Hillel Alexandrov, Mark Razummy
and Z. Wendroff, who are not in-
volved in politics.

Schenk, president of Hadassah, has
criticized the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry as being intransigent,
misguided and immature.
In an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, the head of
the Women's Zionist Organization
of America expressed outrage at
the SSSJ's "storming the building"
to "tell us what to do" about the
plight of Soviet Jewry.
"They are very young kids with
very decent and honorable inten-
tions, but a little misguided," she
declared, adding: "Certainly youth
isn't going to tell us what to do.
I don't have to prove Hadassah's
interests in all matters that con-
cern world Jewry."
Glenn Richter, New York co-
ordinator for the SSSJ, acknowl-
edged to the JTA that a dozen
members insisted on meetings
without appointments. In separate
meetings they presented their case
for increased Hadassah activity on
Soviet Jewry to Mrs. Rose Matzldn,
bead of the Zionist affairs com-
mittee, and to Mrs. Schenk.
Richter said the students pre-
sented "suggestions," not "de-
mands," similar to those presented
June 26, to Bnai Brith, which
called the police to evict the
The suggestions were for an
"internal committee to insure
massive attendance to rallies;"
the allotment of "meaningful
funds" to the American and New
York Jewish Conferences on
Soviet Jewry, of which Hadassah

Poland's Few Jews
Mark Lonely Holiday

LONDON (JTA) — There was
virtually no celebration of the High
Holy Days or Sukot by the few re-
maining Jews in Poland, according
to word reaching here from War-
The only religious services were
those organized by the residents
of Jewish homes for the aged in
Warsaw and Lodz on Rosh Hashana
and Yom Kippur.
Unlike past years when many
younger Jews from outside attend-
ed the services at the homes, the
worship this year was confined to
the inmates.
Most young and middle aged
Jews have left Poland during the
past two years in the wake of an
officially inspired anti-Jewish cam-
paign instituted by the regime In
1968 under the guise of anti-
Jews were purged from virtually
every public office and respon-
sible position, especially in the
communications media. Most Po-
lish Jews have emigrated to West-
ern European countries.
The Yiddish State Theater in
Warsaw opened its season directly
after Yom Kippur as it has done
traditionally for years. But there
was nothing new in the repertoire,
which consists of adaptations of
the classical Yiddish writers and
old mainstays of the Yiddish thea-
ter, such as Peretz Hirshbein and
Abraham Goldfaden.
The holidays were ignored by
local authorities; some of whom
had been invited by the Jewish
clubs in Warsaw, Lodz and Bialy-
The Gensza St. cemetery, the
only Jewish institution in War-
saw that the Nazis did not have
time to destroy, is in a state of
serious disrepair, filled with litter
and overgrown with weeds, the
Yiddish weekly Folkstimme re-
ported from Warsaw.
The periodical, a publication of
the Jewish Cultural and Social
Association, attributed the poor
state of the burial ground to the
fact that most Jews have left
Poland. It called for volunteers
among the remaining Jews of War-
saw to clean up the cemetery and
restore it.
According to Folkstimme, it is
still a major attraction for tourists
because it contains the graves of
many prominent Jews, among
them the writer I. L. Peretz and
Dr. Ludwig Zamenhoff, the in-
ventor of Esperanto.

Is a charter member; the regular
distributiaa of "Soviet Jewry
action programs" to local Hades-
salt chapters; and the appoint-
ment of a full-time administrator
for Soviet Jewry problems.
Richter said that although Ha-
dassah had done "a little bit more"
about the problem than other Jew-
ish organizations, it could do much
more. He said the meetings were
"at times a. bit tense."
Mrs. Schenk, noting that it is
not her policy to call the police in
such situations, told the JTA that
Hadassah does have an internal
committee that deals in part with
Soviet Jewry and that it is headed
by a full-time professional, Miriam
The Hadassah president said she
resented the students' demanding
of her, "What are you doing? Did
you march?"
She said she replied: "I don't
have to account to you for what
Hadassah does. We don't take di-
rection from you. You as youth
have no right to come and see us.
You should be involved, but work
through the organized channels.
There are conventional ways of
doing it"
But Mrs. Schenk said she would

be willing to meet again with the
students on the recommendation of
Rabbi Herschel Schacter, chairman
of the American Jewish Conference
on Soviet Jewry. "We are con-
stantly in touch with Rabbi Shac-
ter," she added.
Mrs. Schenk said the SSSJ mem-
bers acted as if "Soviet Jewry is
going to the gas chamber because
of Hadassah."

"If everybody minded their own
business," the Duchess said, in a
hoarse growl, "the world would go
round a deal faster than it does."
