destroyed, "either quickly
by war, or slowly by trun-

strangulation," the world
would "be little better

the Ford Administration to
punish Israel, the U.S. has
no choice but to keep Israel
both militarily and econom-
ically strong.
"Don't forget that the
United States must see to it
that Israel has the means to
survive unless we are ready
to turn over the Persian'
Gulf, the entire Middle
East, the Mediterranean
basin and even parts of
Western Europe to com-
munists, terrorists and as-
sassins."
St. John emphasized that
U.S. public opinion heavily
favors Israel, and he "would
not care to live in a world in
which Israel could not ex-
ist."
St. John, Campaign gen-
eral chairmen Richard
Sloan and Arthur Howard
and United Jewish Appeal
president Paul Zuckerman
all emphasized that the
Campaign can not rest until
all of the persons yet to be
contacted are reached.
Zuckerman was given the
honor of announcing the
projected total of $17,-
650,000, and he implored the
crowd of more than 900 to
redouble their efforts in
behalf of Israel.

Campaign Told: U.S. Needs Israel

"If you feel emotionally
involved as JeWs, as Ameri-
can Jews, in the struggle for
Israel's survival, then you
have the right to feel a sense
of gratification in the
knowledge that America is
dependent upon Israel," said
Ira Hirschmann at Sunday's
report meeting for the 1975
Allied Jewish Campaign-Is-
rael Emergency Fund.
Hirschmann, an author
whose background includes
an American ambassador-
ship to Turkey immediately
after World War II, the
founding of two New York
City area radio stations, and
a career in retailing, was in
Detroit to address Cam-
paign workers who were
turning in last-minute re-
ports before Wednesday's
closing meeting.
Explaining the interde-
pendence of Israel and
America, Hirschmann made
his point by describing one
period in 1970 when the
presence of American forces
in the port of Haifa pro-
tected the Middle East
against a wave of terrorism
without active military in-
tervention.

"Had it not been for the
seaport," Hirschmann
said, "our military offi-
cials said that America
would not have been able
to achieve its goal of pre-
venting the outbreak of
overt hostilities."

Hirschmann cautioned
his listeners against mea-
suring Israel's strength in
the Mid-East struggle
strictly by land values. He,
too, had made the same er-
ror, he said, "thinking about
only sand, not sea."
His extensive travels have
taken him throughout the
Middle East where he has
marveled at the building of
the democracy in Israel, a
democracy which he says is
a challenge to the feudalism
of her neighbors.
When historians write of
this time, the growth of Is-
rael will be seen as the most
dramatic episode of this
age, Hirschmann predicts.

According to Hirsch-
mann, the propaganda line
of the Arab leaders he's in-

German Films
Shown in Israel

BONN — The cultural
center of the German Em-
bassy in Israel recently
showed German silent films
in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jeru-
salem in co-operation with
the municipal cinemato-
graphic authorities.

The idea came from the
head of the cultural center,
the Berlin journalist Ger-
hard Schonberger. The
,s1lowings were directed by
the film journalist, Ulrich
Gregor, to what were
mostly young audiences.

terviewed is that Israel
cannot survive without the
support of the United
States and that in times of
adversity this support may
falter or be insufficient.
But, the speaker said, the
need of the United States
for a strong, reliable
friend in the Middle East
is the other side of the
coin.

"No matter what happens
in the State Department,
other departments within
our government such as the
Pentagon are well aware of
the crucial nature of Israel's
position," concluded Hirsch-
mann.

Making reports at Sun-
day's meeting were Sol Ci-
curel, Mercantile Division;
Irving Laker, Services—
Arts and Crafts; Earl
Grant, Industrial and Auto-
motive; Milton Barnett,
Real Estate and Building
Trades; Morris Music, Food;
Dr. Milton Miller, Profes-
sional; Edward Lumberg,
Junior; Morris Friedman,
Metropolitan; and Ruth K.
Broder, Women's.
Campaign Associa
Chairman Irving Seligm
tallied the Division repor
for a total of $15,937,568
just three days before the
Campaign's close.

Students Seek
Jewish Studies

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Jewish students at George-
town University have
started a campaign to in-
duce the Jesuit school to es-
tablish a Jewish studies pro-
gram. The Jewish Student
Association also wants the
university to provide a full-
time rabbi, Hebrew lan-
guage courses and office
space for association activ-
-ities.
The drive by the Jewish
students reportedly is re-
lated to their concern over
university plans to establish
an Arab studies institute.
University officials have
started approaching contri-
butors, including Arabs, for
funds to finance the Arab
studies institute.
However, university offi-
cials made plans, before the
JSA was organized this win-
ter, to raise $1 million from
Jews and other donors for a
full-time rabbi and new op-
portunities for Jewish stud-
ies.
Jewish undergraduate
enrollment at the Jesuit in-
stitution has more than
