became the first big name
to break into the new medium
when he bowed on NBC-TV's
"Texaco Star Theater," June
8, 1948 to ride the pinnacle
of popularity for eight con-
secutive years. Berle gen-
erally is credited with sell-
ing more television sets in
those days than all the na-
tion's appliance salesmen
combined.
Yet Milton Berle has been
a motion picture actor since
the age of 5 when young Mil-
ton Berlinger made his debut
before the cameras as the
baby who screen star Marie
Dressler clutched to her
heart in "Tillie's Punctured
Romance." He was the child
tossed from the train by
Pearl White in "The Perils
of Pauline," and the kid who
climbed on John Bunny's lap
in "Bunny's Little Brother."
Later he appeared in silent
movies with Douglas Fair-
banks Sr., Milton Sills, Mabel
Norman and Marion Davies—
in all some 50-odd films with
nary a comedy line.
I remember having seen
Milton Berle in 1943 as the
Jewish cop. in the anti-Nazi
picture, "Margin for Error,"
in which Otto Preminger re-
peated his Broadway role of
the ferocious Prussian officer
and diplomat. In addition to
many comedy roles on stage,
screen, in musical revues, on
radio and television Berle
rendered a heart-breaking
performance as the much
harassed agent in the motion
picture "The Oscar" some
eight years ago, thereby add-
ing a new dimension to his
multi-talented artistry. His
Emmy-nominated portrayal
in television's "Doyle Against
the House," remains in the
same genre. And now the
role of Meyer, one of the few
decent men in "Lepke,"
story of Louis Buchalter who
ended his life of crime in the
electric chair.

Assaf Dayan, actor-son of
Israel's defense minister, por-
trays one of the leads in the
filmization of Maxim Gorky's
"Marva," now streamlined
under the title of "Three
and One" and directed by
Russian-Jewish immig r an t
Michael Kalik at the south-
ernmost port of Eilat. The
strange love triangle includes
Ori Levy and Yona Elian
(who has appeared as Rachel
in Michael •acoyannis' "Ja-
cob and Joseph").
Gordon Stulberg, the 50-
year-old president of 20th
Century-Fox, was honored by
the Variety Club of Southern
California "for dedicated
service to philanthropic en-
deavors on behalf of under-
privileged children."

cialite and beauty queen who

MAN OF ACTION: Most of the national Jewish organi-,
zations in this country are blessed with top executives who
are able, dedicated and imaginative. Gottlieb Hammer is
one of them. Now retiring from his position as executive
vice chairman of the United Israel Appeal after 35' years
of continued distinguished service in the UIA and its pred-
ecessor, the Jewish Agency for Israel, Inc., Hammer leaves
his career as top man in the Jewish civil service. His was,
a career marked with high recogntion both in this country
and in Israel—to assume a leading postion in a banking
firm. Thus he completes the circle which he started in his
younger days when he took a banking job after graduating
from college in 1929.
During the 35 years of his service in the Jewish Agency
and in the United Israel Appeal, Hammer has been a close
witness to the most significant events concerning Israel
To his credit goes especially the achievement he reached in
successfully negotiating huge loans for the Jewish Agenc,:
from leading American banks. These loans totalling over
$2 billion came at a time when Israel needed them most
urgently. Only about $100 million of the loans are still out-
standing. The remainder have been paid up with interest
He was instrumental in the acquisition by the Jewish
Agency of the imposing building at 515 Park Avenue fl:r z
New York—a most chosen location on the fashionable Park'
Avenue. The building is now a Jewish landmark. It houses
the headquarters of the various groups in the American
Zionist movement—political, cultural, social and educa-
tional. It also houses the Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations.
Hammer developed long-term borrowing programs from
American insurance companies to finance housing develo
ments in Israel. He was active in reconstituting the Jewish,
Agency in 1970 of which he is now associate member of the
Executive. He served as president of the American Israeli
Shipping Line and was also chairman of the New York
advisory board of the Bank Leumi.

NEW HORIZON: In terminating his 35-year career,
Hammer does not intend to divorce -himself from participa-
tion in the agencies and organizations in which he has beerg
active all the years. He will continue to serve as a volur0
•ees and lay leader.
The United Israel Appeal will name him as a membei
of its board of directors. He will be elected to full mem-
bership in the extended Jewish Agency. At present he fs: ,
also a member of the executive committee of the National
United Jewish Appeal; vice president of the American Com-
mittee for the Weizmann Institute; member of the board of
governors• of the Weizmann Institute; and a member of the
board of directors of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
In retiring from his present position in the United Israel
Appeal, he will become senior vice president of the Inter-'
national Credit Bank Geneva and its resident represent-
ative in the United States. This financial organization '''AC
established 15 years ago as a regular commercial bar
Dr. Tibor Rosenbaum, a Hungarian Jew who partied
in the underground movement and greatly assisted the
"Briha," the illegal Jewish emigration to Palestine before ,
the establishment of Israel. He is now the chairman of the
World Mizrachi Movement.
Deeply interested in Israel, Dr. Rosenbaum has made
substantial investments in industrial enterprises there. His
International Credit Bank has also granted substantial loari1
to the Jewish Agency, to the Zim navigation line, and other
Israeli institutions. It has acquired 50 per cent interest in
Israel's duty-free shops, which are a source of foreign cur
rency for Israel.
In addition to becoming senior vice president and resi-
dent representative of the Geneva Bank in the United
States, Hammer will also be named president of the U.S
Discount Corporation, one of the bank's affiliates. He has
decided to enter his new career after consultations with:
the leaders of the United Israel Appeal and the Jewish,
Agency, who were most understanding.
