JNF Scores When Girls Go' o Bai

Detroit Tigers they're not.
But when the members of
Ann Arbor's new women's
- softball team go to bat, the
Jewish National Fund wins
—no matter what the out-
come of the game.
The JNF has undertaken
sponsorship of one of the
member teams of the Ann
Arbor W o men's Softball
League conducted by the lo-
cal parks and recreation de-
partment.
Eighteen players—only half
of them Jews—comprise the
team whose easily identifi-
able shirts proclaim the prod-
uct of their sponsor, the Jew
ish National Fund, Israel's
tree-planting and land recla-
mation agency.
The young women, some of
them students and staff
members at the University
of Michigan, are a walking
commercial for the JNF.
And not only because of their
shirts, which they themselves
designed.
They have learned well
what the JNF represents and
the work it does for Israel.
During their twice-weekly
practice, and Thursday after-
noon games, they have op-
portunity to orient others.
JNF team members — or
the "JeNauFurs" as they
sometimes call themselves
—report that members of op-
posing' teams, friends and
even strangers are learning
all about the JNF.
The idea for JNF's spon-

While the JNF team rec-

they're creating a stir on
the diamonds—and a lot of
interest in the Jewish Na-
tional Fund.

Mrs. Green has a lot of
friends out there—and some
of them don't even know her
name.
The above "advertisement"
was placed by a close friend,
Julia Weiss, who said that
Mrs. Green is being tendered
a dinner by well-wishers in
recognition of her selfless
deeds for others. Her four
children have been invited.
Mrs. Weiss explained the
reason for the award to Mrs.
Green:
"She'll walk down the
.street and see someone
carrying bundles. She doesn't
ask anybody their name, but
she'll help them carry or
give them a ride. She's that
kind of a person. If you're
sick, she'll have someone
pick up your groceries. And
she'll cook your meals for
you, too.
"If the butcher tells her
he's got a sore throat and

..

.....

he wishes he had some tea,
she'll run home and bring
back two tea bags. She baby-
sits, and if someone has to
go to the hospital, she'll sit
with them in the ambulance."
Mrs. Weiss said that her
friend, who is on disability
and Social Security, has not
been well. She suffers from
arthritis and other ailments
that have made it difficult
For her to work.
A former nurse, , Mrs.
Green, 66, lives in a small
house that her children ac-
quired for her. She attends
Sabbath services regularly
at Cong. Bnai Moshe and
Shaarey Shomayim, "except
on the days when her arth-
ritis hurts too bad."
The testimonial dinner
planned in Mrs. Green's
honor won't be big—maybe
15 people, Mrs. Weiss said.
"We'll all get together and
cook. Maybe her kids and
some of the people she's
helped will come." She also
has eight grandchildren.
If you know Mrs. Green,
don't tell her you saw this
article. "She's very proud
and bashful," Mrs. _Weiss
said. "What would really
make her happy is to see her
children's names in the
paper. Maybe you'll just run
a little ad and let everybody
know?"

Avern Cohn, at 50, Gains Community
Recognition for Manifold Activities

Avern Cohn ennobles a
revered family tradition. Like
his father, Irwin I. Cohn, he
is a leader in Detroit's phil-
anthropic ranks. Following in
the tradition of like-father-
like son, he responds to calls
to action in defense of Jewish
rights, in behalf of Israel, in
support of all traditional Jew-
ish needs — and in being
closely linked with the social
and political needs of the city
of his birth.
On his 50th birthday, next
Tuesday, Avern Cohn will be
saluted by so many with
whom he is closely associat-
ed that the greetings will en-
compass Greater Detroit,
with echoes on a national
basis.
Born in Detroit, July 23,
1924, Avern Cohn studied in
Detroit public schools and
earned his LLB f r o m the
University of Michigan in
1949.
He is associated with the
law firm of Honigman, Mil-
ler, Schwartz - and Cohn,
which also still is served by
his father in an advisory
capacity.
