`Israel Histadrut a Way of Life'
Milliken Dinner Guests Told

By HEIDI PRESS
"Histadrut is a way of life
—the only way the Jews in
Israel could stay alive as a
society ill an area fraught
with all the dangers of un-
friendly Turks, a less than
friendly Britain and the
Arabs."
Speaking to about 500 gov-
ernment, industry, religious,
labor and other community
leaders Wednesday at a His-
tadrut-sponsored dinner hon-
oring Gov. William G. Milli-
ken, Louis L. Levine gave a
brief history of Israel's labor
and pioneering organization.
Levine is the national
chairman of the public serv-
ice council for Histadrut and
is the industrial commission-
er of the New York state la-
bor department.
"Histadrut made the state
of Israel," Levine said. "It
has created industry and
brought in management, and
until today has raised the
standard of living of about
500,000 Arabs.
He cited some of the re-
sults of Histadrut work:
• The East Jerusalem
Arabs have better working
conditions than ever and
have been taught how to be
"their own man."
• Israeli Arabs receive
better medical care from
Histadrut than do Arabs in
Syria, Egypt, Iraq and Saudi
Arabia.
• Histadrut taught Afri-
cans, Asians and South
Americans to understand
how to get people to work
together and to "produce a
society where all people are
treated equal."
Levine said Moslems, Hin-
dus and Buddhists have come
to Israel secretly to study at
Histadrut's Afro-Asian Insti-
tute, "where they are not
proselytized."
Another important function
of Histadrut, Levine said, is
that it sends out advisers to
underdeveloped countries to
give leaders an economic un-
derstanding, without imperi-
alism as a motive. "That is
not the way of Israel," Le-
vine said.
Myra Wolfgang, secretary-
treasurer of the hotel and
restaurant employes union,
appealed for support, for His-
tadrut vocational schools,
medical .centers, homes for
the aged and the Afro-Asian
Institute, which will benefit
from the dinner's proceeds.
Gov. Milliken, who re-
ceived a menora in apprecia-
tion "for his outstanding ded-
ication to humanitarian
causes," said it was his
"fond hope to go to Israel,
to get to know this country
and to visit the Afro-Asian
Institute and see the work
there."
Morris Lieberman, chair-
man of the Israel Histadrut
campaign of Detroit, made
the presentation. Detroit May-
or Coleman Young sent greet-
ings. Rev. Robert Jordan of
Unity Christian Church de-
livered the benediction.
Master of ceremonies was
Charles G. Younglove, direc-
tor of District 29, United
Steelworkers of America.
Others on the program in-
cluded Donald E. Young,
chairman of the board of di-
rectors of the Greater Detroit

One Statement .. .

TELL IT LIKE IT IS!!!!

Statistics prove beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you really are gambling when you are
driving a compact or a foreign car. Don't lose your life trying to save a few gallons of gas,
it's not worth it, and can so easily happen to you if you have a major accident while driving
one of the smaller cars.

I have to think that life is worth more than a few extra miles per gallon.

Play it safe ... Buy a car with your life in mind.
Oldsmobile was designed for your comfort and safety. If you drive in a 50 M.P.H. zone you will
get good gas mileage. I think if you are going to buy a car of any kind, play it smart, and keep
all these facts in mind.

I don't believe that you will find a better place for fair pricing, and fair dealing than JERRY
GLASSMAN OLDS, and-one more thing ... your piece of mind comes free of charge.

Did you know that Oldsmobile is 100% American made.
