Mogen David Honors Gen. Marshall;
He's Confident Israel Will Hold Line


Participants at the Magen'd David Adam meeting Monday were
(from left) Brig. Gen. S. L. A. Marshall, Philip Slomovitz, Dr. John
Manisa, Dr. Morris Starkman and Dr. Sheldon Mintz.

Brig. Gen. S. L. A. Marshall told
the annual meeting of Detroit Chap-
ter of American Red Mogen Dovid
for Israel, at Cong. Bnai Moshe
Monday night, that he is convinced
Israel's army has upgraded its po-
sition on the banks of the Suez
Canal and will be able to hold the
line indefinitely.
Reporting on his study of mili-
tary conditions in Israel on his
three-week visit there last month,
Gen. Marshall expressed the con-
viction that the current standstill
in fighting could continue indefi-
nitely. He rejected the idea that
the Egyptians could crack the Bar-
Lev line. "It simply can not be
wiped out by artillery fire," he
declared. "Heavy artillery can not
destroy that kind of object."

Reviewing the events that pre-
ceded Nasser's death, Gen. Mar-
shall explained that the move-
ment toward peace bogged down
under Nasser and he said it was
certain that Riad and Sadat
"have no choice but to resume a
diplomatic olfensive. I don't be-
lieve they'll go beyond that."

In recognition of his activities
in support of Israel and for his
services for Magen David Adorn in
Israel, Gen. Marshall was present-
ed with a citation. The certificate
for Israel, at Cong. Bnai Moshe
of merit, given him on behalf of
the Detroit chapter by Philip
Slomovitz, contains all the stamps
in countries throughout the world
that were dedicated to the Red
Cross, with the Israel Magen David
stamp represeting Israel's Red
Cross counterpart.
Slomovitz pointed out in his pre-
sentation that Marshall was of the
ranks of noble Christians who
aided Israel and the Zionist move-
ment. He said that a leader among

such friends of the Zionist cause
and the people of Israel was the
founder of the Red Cross, Jean
Henri Dunant, who, 300 years be-
fore Herzl, urged the settlement
of Jews in Palestine in an Open
Letter to the World and by organ-
izing groups for that purpose.

Presiding at the meeting was
Dr. Sheldon Mintz, who greeted
Gen. Marshall with a cabled
message from Dr. Ellaim Elath,
world president of Magen David.
Mintz told of the extensive
Magen David tasks through 700
established stations doing mercy
work in Israel.

Dr. Morris Starkman told of the
great need to assure most modern
means of preserving blood plasma
in the Marcus Center in Jaffa. He
told of plans to establish a blood
bank there, and the evening's
speaker joined in an appeal for
funds to assist in the worldwide
effort in behalf of Magen David
The president of the Detroit
chapter, Dr. John Mames, gave
an additional outline of the move-
ment's aims and announced a num-
ber of gifts to assist in completing
the Detroit project in Ashdod, Is-
rael, the Magen David Adorn un-
derground air shelter.
In his address, in which he re-
ported his experiences in Israel
and his study of the military, Gen.
Marshall described the happenings
at the UN as a non sequitur. He
told of the fright that caused the
Egyptians to leave Jordan during
the six-day war between Hussein's
forces and the guerillas, and he
ascribed it to Syria's having learn-
ed that five Israeli brigades were
ready to enter the struggle and
prevent the Syrian takeover of
Marshall warned that "Russia's
hand is behind every Arab move."
He told of having traveled in Is-
rael with a Detroit doctor, a Syrian-
Lebanese, who spoke Arabic with
Arabs in Israel. The doctor re-
turned an enthused adherent to
Israel's cause.
