Eleanor Roosevelt Portrayed as Youth Aliya
Supporter, Unhesitatingly Defiant of Nazism

"Mother R" was strong in
character, idealistic, defiant
of Nazism, deeply inter-
ested in Zionist efforts.
Her strength of character
is described in an impres-
sive biography, "Mother
R- Eleanor Roosevelt's Un-
told Story" (G.P. Putnam's
Sons), in the writing of
which James Brough collab-
orated with her son; Elliot
Roosevelt. •

Whatever frustrations
may have existed, regard-
less of obstructions caused
by her staying in the back-
ground in earlier years,
"Mother R" assumed lead-
ership that gave her status
of strength after the passing
of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

There were family prob-
lems, the infatuations of
FDR, the children's man-
nerisms, the idiosyncrasies
of FDR's mother Sarah De-
lano Roosevelt. The lead-
ership inherent in the great
woman was activated with

the admiration that became
her compensation.
The many issues in which
she became involved, the
challenges she met, the in-
fluence over family—these
become evident in this "un-
told story" in the courage
that was hers.
She had been outspoken
against Nazism. She did not
hesitate to reiterate it while
on a mission to Germany
after the war.
She had a role in the
Youth Aliya movement for
Israel, and the Roosevelt-
Brough story relates it:
"Raising money was her

Jewish Culture Foundation
Establishes Arts Endowment

NEW YORK—The estab-
lishment of a first-time, na-
tionwide program of yearly
grants in support of creative
Jewish expression and ex-
cellence to be given to indi-
vidual American artists in
'all melia, those excep-
tionally promising as well
as established, was an-
nounced by the National
Foundation for Jewish Cul-
ture.
Grants to individual art-
ists, according to the NFJC
prospectus, will range from
$5,000 to $12,500, in keeping
with the circumstances of
the artist and his or her
project requirements.
The first nationwide field
of entries will be opened in
spring, 1978; inaugural
grants will be awarded that
autumn. Grant dis-
bursements totalling up to
$250,000 each year are con-
templated for an initial
three-year phase of the pro-
gram's operation.

artists and practitioners in
each of the relevant fields.
Grants will not necessarily
be made each year in all
areas.
Financing for The Fund
for the Arts, is currently
being drawn, and will be
sought as well in the future,
exclusively from the private
patron sector and from pub-
lic and private foundations,
and not from the organized
Jewish community.
It is anticiapted that the
NFJC initiative will qualify
in time to receive matching
financial support from fed-
eral agencies and state
councils.

weather, tho' the trip to
Miami last Thursday was a
bit bumpy. I spoke for Is-

the auditorium was packed.
"Friday all day and eve-

with two speeches and a
tong business meeting. Sat-

Farl's house, and he took us

it was rather an empty day!
I felt let down and lacking
in energy in Miami, but I
feel it less here. Perhaps
I'm getting accustomed to
the war over China, etc.
Tonight I speak for Israel
Bonds here."
The personalities she met
with, those in government,
Bernard Baruch and others,
the events that challenged
her interests, her responses,
all combine to make
"Mother R" a story of deep
interest.

too, though her ties to Zion-
ism had been extended
much farther. She had
agreed to be a "world pa-
tron," an official title, of
Youth Aliyah, which had
come into being originally
as a kind of underground
railway to save Jewish chil-
dren from Nazi gas cham-
bers.
"And she was increas-
ingly involved with young
Brandeis University in Wal-
tham, Massachusetts; she
had addressed the first com-
mencement of 101 students
there, urging them to "have
courage to live in uncer-
tainty."
