Detroit Teachers Federation Poet Laureate
Edith Linderman Publishes Her Poetic Works

Editor, The Jewish News:
My husband and I were
privileged to be amongst
the 3,000 Jews who at-
tended the first UJA Con-
ference ever held in
Jerusalem. Also, this was
the first time that so
many American Jews
came to Israel at one time
and the Israeli people
were thrilled with our
gesture of solidarity.
We were treated as
honored family, as guests
— we were warmly loved,
and in turn, pledged our
support and dedication
to our dear families —
brothers and sisters in
Eretz Israel — that "This
Year in Jerusalem" will
continue to support Is-
rael in every way — for
without Eretz Israel we
cannot survive.

MARVIN ROSENN,

the noteworthy story of a
successful teacher, the
book's author Edith Lin-
derman, whose poetic
works left such an in-
erasable mark in the
schools and among pupils
as well as teachers that
she was honored by the
Detroit- Federation of
Teachers as their Poet
Laureate.
The poet, who was mar-
ried to Bernard Linder-
man, a well known leader
in Detroit Labor Zionist
ranks, on May 30, 1933,
may well be considered a
pioneer poet in the ranks
of the Detroit teaching
profession.
Fellow teachers ad-
mired Mrs. Linderman
and loved her poetry for
obvious reasons. She knew
the teachers and the pupils
and they were often the
targets of her verses. For
example, she wrote a piece
in honor of Frances S.
Comfort, the founder and
leader of the Detroit Fed-
eration of Teachers and
she dedicated her book to
her and to her husband.
And "For Frances Com-

LONDON (JTA) —
David Blumberg, inter-
national president of
Bnai Brith, said that the
election of-Jimmy Carter
was going to be "good for
the Jewish people" de-
spite initial reservations
expressed by some
American Jews and Is-
raelis over Carter's views
on Israel and his religious
background.
As Carter, campaigned
around the country, he
impressed people as a
man of integrity with ex-
perience in government.
He said he was aware
that certain prominent

No poem contrived can hold her
essence,
Who was herself a poem:
Lyric with love,
Sparkling with iridescent wit,
Epic in the majestic sweep of her
humanity.
Yet, mind you, understated al-
ways
By her own self.
As though her theme were known
best through simplicity
And not through pompous words
or craft.
Nor is her beauty half-erased by
time,
Nor magnified by time's false im-
agery.
Who knew her reads again her
vibrant lines
As though upon a book, the very
page,
And mouths her music in the daily
round.

The impressions of
schools and students are
so intimate and soul stir-
ring that they point to the
reason for the poet hav-
ing been chosen laureate
of her co-workers in the
school system.

fort" she wrote:

Your imagination will
soar when you view the
results of the successful
marriage of this hard,
semi-precious stone with
the soft lustre of sterling
silver. Truly a lapidary
masterpiece ... and truly
affordable, too.

Israelis apparently had
hoped for a Republican
victory because the Re-
publican Administration
demonstrated its support
for Israel in concrete
terms of economic-and
military assistance. Some
members of the Carter
team seemed to favor a
more "even-handed"
Middle East policy which
was interpreted in cer-
tain quarters as possibly
inimical to Israel's in-
terests, Blumberg said.
Such anxieties among
American Jews were
largely dispelled by Car-
ter's campaign pledges
and his strong position
against the Arab boycott,
he added.Blumberg said
there were no doubts
about the capability of
Carter's principal foreign
policy advisers — Prof.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, Ar-
thur Schlesinger Jr. and
Cyrus Vance. Blumberg
described Brzezinski as
"one of the most know-
ledgeable men" in the
fields of defense and
foreign policy who
"speaks in the manner we
Jews like."
In Georgia, President-
elect Carter thanked Is-
raeli President Ephraim
Katzir and Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin for their mes-
sages on his election to
the Presidency and said
they are "encouragment
to me as I prepare to as-
sume the Presidency."

Liz and Simha

WASHINGTON — The
only guests at a recent
dinner party thrown by
Israeli Ambassador
Simha Dinitz for actress
Elizabeth Taylor and her
fiance John Warner were
Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger and his wife
Nancy.

N umerous are the
poems dealing with Israel
and Jewry, such as the
following:

Swastika
on the Synagogue

The crooked insect creeps
From out the nightmare night
Where men had not yet dreamed
Their edifice of light.
The crooked insect leaps
And spills its Rorschach blot
Across the shining spires
Of all men's soaring thought.
The morning light reveals
It sprawled obscene and squat:
The signature of hate
Towards all mankind and God.
Mrs.
Linderman

taught for 32 years in
the Detroit school sys-
tem. She taught the
elementary grades for
many years, specializing
in reading readiness. She
later taught eighth grade
and senior high- school
English. A graduate of
Wayne State University,
where she earned
bachelor's and master's
degrees, Mrs. Linderman
has had her poetry pub-
lished in The Detroit
Teacher, The English
Journal, Core Magazine,
The Jewish News and The
American Teacher.
The Lindermans have a
daughter, Deborah, who
is a professor at Brown
University, and a son,
Leon, who is a social
worker.
