ark, in which the Torah scrolls
will be stored, while services are
being held Saturday mornings in
Beth El. The temple holds services
Friday evenings.
Rabbi Hillel Millgram led the
procession of Torahs, and con-
gregation elders participated in
carrying the scrolls. Because of
the distance, walkers alternated,
and a caravan of cars followed.
Upon arrival at the temple, the
procession was greeted by the
leaders of Beth El.
Until the Beth Israel sanctuary
and school are completed, the
religious school will meet at
Coolidge Elementary School, 4-8
p.m. Monday through Thursday
and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday. Temple
Beth El is adjacent to Coolidge.

What can an inexperienced
15-year-old idcl .from Harper and Van Dyke
do for you this summer?

1. If you run a store maybe you
can use a kid to clean .the bottles
on the shelves. (There will be over
200,000 kids—age 13 to 20 on the
streets of Detroit this summer.)

5. It you run a filling station an
extra kid could give you the clean-
est windshields in town, which is
something to sell when you're not,
giving away placemats.
need jobs, too. Nice girls. Smart
and very polite.)

2. If you run a restaurant
maybe you can use another kid to
clean tables. (200.000 kids with
nothing to do is not something
Detroit needs right now.)

6. If you run a nursery, a kid
can sell more peat moss for you ... •,
'cause he's strong enough to lift it.
(Everybody says they want to do
something to help their fellow man.
So help , your fellow kidJ

3. If you run an office, you
could probably use an extra kid
to sort the mail. Or maybe take
inventory. (O.K. You're only one
guy! You can't worry about 200,000
kids. So worry about one kid. Give
one kid a job!)

4. If you have a fence that
needs painting you could do the
Tom Sawyer bit and supply the
whitewash. We'll supply the kid.
(There are 55,912 businesses in the
Detroit area. H everybody tried to
find a spot for one kid the problem
is cut by_a_quarter. Trytwo and we
cut it in half.)

7. If you want your
thatched and mowed, an
seeded, nobody, but nobody can
handle that as well as a kid. (The
summer_ job problem in Detroit is •
blackkh.a) nd white... You can make
Detroit work by_hiring one kid . . .
black or white, and no -F. caring

8. If you care, giving one kid
a job this summer will.avke you
feel good alt winter. (Please help.)
