Allied Campaign Geared to Open April 1

Moving into the last week before
the official opening dinner of the
1971 Allied Jewish Campaign-
Israel Emergency Fund, volunteer
solicitors redoubled their efforts
in seeking as many pledges as
possible prior to the first report.
The opening dinner is scheduled
for 6:15 p.m. Thursday, April 1,
at Cong. Shaarey Zedek and will
mark the greatest fund-raising ef-
fort that Detroit Jewry has ever

Pre-campaign activity thus far
has resulted in pledges totalling
$8,800,000, Meyer M. Fishman
and Max M. Shaye, chairmen,*
have announced. This represents
an increase of over $2,000,000
more than these same people
gave last year.

"The response to the crisis which
faces us in 1971 has been astound-
ing," the chairmen said. "There
are many Detroiters who have in-
creased their pledges two, three,
four and even five times over their
1970 gifts.
"That spirit must be continued
throughout the entire campaign so
that Israel will not fall short
through lack of support. What we
do now will affect us and our
families and all Jews for many

years to come."
The chairmen pointed out that
Israel must keep a constant mili-
tary- vigilance and maintain its
defense material if it is to survive
and this takes 90 per cent of its
tax income, leaving little to care
for the ill and the children, and to
aid the 50,000 immigrants who
come from lands of oppression
each year to find a new life in

Zionist Organization of Detroit
to Sponsor Art Auction April 4

An art auction show, proceeds
to be used for scholarships in the
Israel agricultural school and the
Molly Goodman High School at
Kfar Silver, will be sponsored by
the Zionist Organization of Detroit
April 4 at the Zionist Cultural
Dr. and Mrs. Alex Friedlaender
are co-chairmen of the function
which will commence with a pre-
view from 5 to 7 p.m., the art
show to continue from 7 p.m.
Dr. Joel Hamburger, ZOD presi-
dent, announced that the function

mer months as well as for the
entire year's enrollment in the

noir, Matisse, Whistler, Rem-

and others.

William Haber, who will person-
ally direct the art auction in behalf
of the directing firm, has been
described as a one-man show. He
is noted for his expertise and his
knowledge of the art to be made
available, as well as the staff
assisting him.
"My only problem is supply,"
Haber said. "We sell out at all
times. There isn't anything I buy
that 10 can't sell. We always at-
tract terrific audiences. A good
percentage are professionals—law-
yers, architects and doctors."
Haber's works are sold for $20
to $1,000, but the majority have
price tags between $50 and $100.
"In addition," he said, "I occa-
sionally stop the bidding on a piece
if I feel it is beyond die point
where the buyer is getting his
money's worth. I don't want my
customers to be carried away in
the bidding. It's bad, from the
standpoint of goodwill."
Haber was born in New York,
attended City College and began
selling paintings and antiques in
the Bronx 20 years ago.
