paign-Israel E m e r g e n c y
Fund will be held 10 a.m.

more than they did in the
1972 campaign will be hon-
ored for their 100 per cent
achievement.

junior divisions have already
exceeded their 1972 goals, but

for the juniors, said that their
workers will not slacken their

efforts until every lost gift
within their divisions has
been secured.
The six divisions within the
trades and professional or-
ganizations all reported in at
levels about 80 per cent at
the initial report meeting.
For reservations to the 10
a.m. continental breakfast,

The closing victory meet-
ing will be held 8 p.m. May

Zuckerman Cites Increased
Level of Giving in U. S.
NEW YORK (JTA)—In a
progress report on the 1973
nationwide UJA campaign,
Paul Zuckerman, general

'chairman of the United Jew-
ish Appeal, relased figures
on April 19 indicating an in-
creased level of giving
throughout the American
Jewish community.

"At the midpoint of our
current campaign, total
pledges received are $192,-
827,268 as compared to $163,-
497,128 at the same time last
year—showing an over-all in-
crease of over $29,000,000,"
Zuckerman stated.
Commenting on the signi-
ficance of these figures, he
said that "despite the recent
sharp rises in the cost-of-
living index, the American
Jewish community continues
to show a growing concern

for, and understanding of,
the pressing problems in the
absorption of newcomers to
Israel, and this is most
heartening."

Zuckerman stressed the
urgency of UJA's present
cash collection drive aimed
at a rapid and complete re-
demption of pledges to pre-
vent curtailment of vital
UJA-supported programs.

Nazi Ties Traced to Ill's 1933 -1945 Record

_ _,IEW YORK (JTA) — The
International Telephone and
Telegraph Corporation main-
tained close ties with leaders
of Nazi - Germany from 1933
until the end of the war in
1945, according to Anthony
Sampson, the author of a
forthcoming book, "The Sov-
erign State of ITT," to be
published by Stein and Day.
His charge is based on a
study of U.S. government rec-
ords in the National Archives
that have been ignored until
recently.
Sampson, a newsman from
the London Observer, stated
in an article in the current
issue of New York Magazine
that ITT "carefully arranged
to become German" and "de-
liberately invested in the
German war effort." The
giant corporation, which has
been in the news recently
for trying to prevent the elec-
tion of Salvador Allende as
president of Chile, produced
Focke-Wulf bombers for the
Nazi regime during World
War II that "were to wreak
havoc on Allied convoys,"
Sampson wrote.

son's article is the late Sos-
thenes Behn who founded the
