Fisher Predicts Upturn in U.S. Economy Will
Help Resolve UJA's Current Cash Problems

By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)—Max
Fisher, chairman of the Jew-
ish Agency's Board of Gov-
ernors, Tuesday predicted an
upturn in the U.S. economy
that would relieve the
"liquidity problems. ' of some
big American donors enabl-
ing them to redeem their
pledges to the United Jewish
Appeal and ease the Jewish
Agency's present cash crisis.
Fisher made his remarks
following a meeting of the
full Jewish Agency executive.
Jewish Agency Treasurer
Leon Dulzin reported at that
meeting that this year's bud-
get was some $200,000,000
short and that the agency
needed the sum urgently in
cash. He attributed the def-

icit to the slumping world
economy which he said was
slowing the conversion Of
pledges into cash.
Fisher expressed the same
view. He said that while the
immediate cash needs were
urgent and required urgent
attention, there should be no
slackening of UJA efforts to
obtain large pledges for next
year's campaign.
"It would be wrong tactics
and wrong psychologically to
allow a prominent giver's
temporary liquidity problems
to impinge upon his pledge
for next year's campaign,"
Fisher said.
Citing the most recent
Prime Minister's UJA mis-
sion to Israel, which pledged
a. record $15,000,000, Fisher
observed that "most men
who make large commit-
ments are men of integrity."
The Detroit industrialist, an
acquaintance of President
Gerald Ford, said he was
confident that the Ford Ad-
ministration's economic mea-
sures would restore "buoy-
ancy" to the American econ-
omy within a period of
months.
Fisher announced that
former premier Golda Meir
will visit the U.S. in Decem-
ber on behalf of the UJA,
one of a number of top Israeli
leaders enlisted in the forth-
coming UJA campaign. He
said the UJA hoped to raise
as much or more money next
year than in last year's rec-

U.S. Marks Weiz mann Centenary

NEW YORK — The 100th
anniversary of the birth of
Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the
scientist-statesman who ser-
ved as the first president of
the state of Israel, will be
celebrated in the United
States Oct. 10 at the 'annual
Weizmann dinner at the New
York Hilton Hotel.
Held under the auspices of
the American Committee for
the Weizman Institute of
Science, the dinner is expect-
ed to attract a nationwide
audience. Morris L. Levin-
son, president of the Ameri-
can committee, is dinner
chairman.
The Weizmann Institute of
Science at Rehovot, Israel
was a 70th birthday gift to
Dr. Weizmann who served as
its first president from 1944
until his death in 1952. Dr.

ord-breaking post-Yom Kip-
pur War campaign.
He said that as part of the
effort 65 UJA missions from
the U.S. would be brought to
Israel during October and
November comprised of some
2,000 American-Jewish lead-
ers who would study the
country's present needs-first
hand.
Turning to political mat-
ters, Fisher said he believed
a deal on the Jackson Amend-
ment was "pretty close."
He attributed progress on
the issue of Soviet-Jewish
emigration to President
Ford's personal intervention
immediately on assuming of-
fice last month. Fisher was
confident that if harassment
ended inside the Soviet Union
and Jews were allowed to
leave without difficulty, the
present downward trend in
Soviet aliya would be re-
versed.
Fisher firmly denied that
he had ever opposed the
Jackson Amendment. But he
said he had felt all along
that Jackson and the admin-
istration would reach a "re-
formulation" of the initial
legislation mutually agreed
upon.
Fisher expressed satisfac-
tion at Ford's ascent to the
Presidency and at his choice
of Rockerfeller whom Fisher
described as a good friend of
Israel.
Fisher felt Israel could be
confident, based on Ford's

U.S. Students to Get
Israeli Education

NEW YORK — Twenty
American college students
between the ages of 18-25 will
be leaving for Israel for a
year of intensive Judaic
studies at the Hayim Green-
berg College.
According to Dr. Abraham
Gannes, director of the de-
partment of education and
culture of the World Zionist
Organization-American Sec-
tion, Kenneth Bruss of Sher-
villa Ave., Southfield is one
of the students from eight
states and Canada who will
attend the program.
The curriculum of the col-
lege is designed to serve
general educational purposes
a n d specific professional
goals and is especially geared
for students who will be en-
tering the field of Jewish
education, youth work, com-
munal life or the rabbinate.

record, congressional bipar-
tisan support, and widespread
public sympathy for Israel's
case. He thought all these
elements would result in fav-
orable treatment for Israel's
aid requests — despite U.S.
economic difficulties.
Fisher met with President
Ford in Washington last
week, before leaving for Is-
rael, and discussed for an
hour a number of problems
affecting Israel and Jews.
He said that Ford assured
him that his door was always
open and said he was in the
process of arranging a meet-
ing of American Jewish lead-
ers with the President "to
take place soon."
Fisher stressed the import-
ance of Rabin's visit to Wash-
ington this month. He said
he thought it was particularly
important that Rabin go to
Washington now rather than
later as some Israelis have
suggested.
He said he expected Rabin
to present ISrael's position to
the American leaders no less
successfully than previous
Israeli premiers did.
Fisher defended Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger
against recent criticism that
he was selling out Israel for
a quick Middle East settle-
ment.
He urged Israelis, however,
not to forget "the historic
role that Henry Kissinger
played and the things he did
in a period of very dark days
for Israel. He is a good
friend of Israel."
