A Pharmaceutical Pilgrimage Marks
$1,231,000 Bond Fete for Jack Robinson

A veritable pilgrimage of
representatives of all ph-
ases of the drug industry
marked the Israel Bond
dinner given in honor of
Jack Robinson, president
and founder of Perry Drugs,
held Monday evening at
Fairlane Manor.
There were nearly 1,000
at the event and the phar-
maceutical industry,
country-wide, converged on
this area to pay honor to one
of the most successful heads
of a drug chain in this coun-
try.
David Hermelin, chair-
man of the Greater Detroit
Israel Bond organization, in
one of the tributes ex-
pressed by participants on
the program, announced a
record sale of $1,231,000 in
Israel Bonds in recognition
of Robinson's many services
to important causes in the
community.

Samuel Frankel spoke
as a life-long friend of the
honoree, describing the
-struggles of a man who,
orphaned at the age of
two, rose to affluence and
eminence in pursuit of a
career in his chosen field,
while, as a youth, had
helped to support a
fatherless family.

The Eleanor Roosevelt
Humanitarian Award was
presented to Robinson by
Ben-Zion Bezalel, director
of State of Israel Develop-
ment Authority for the
Midwest.
As guest speaker, Dr.
Leon Keyserling, eminent
economist and former ad-
viser to the President and a
member of the White House
staff of economic experts

during the Truman Ad-
ministration, pointed to the
danger of Israel abandoning
territory vital to her de-
fense. He drew upon early
American experience in the
acquisition of California
and refusal to return the
territory to Mexico because
the defensive position for
the U.S. was vital.
Keyserling emphasized
the importance of support-
ing the Israel Bond program
and expressed confidence
that the Jewish state's eco-
nomic position will improve
despite the high inflation
rate.

Robinson's acknowl-
edgement of the award and
the accolades was an
eloquent address in which
he re-affirmed his deep
interest in Israel and in the
human causes which dis-
tinguished the name of
Eleanor Roosevelt, the
name affixed on the award
he received. He paid respect
to his family and apprecia-
tion to the vast audience
that had made the invest-
ment in Israel Bonds possi-
ble.
Rabbi Irwin Groner gave
the invocation and Cantor
Jacob Barkin led in the
singing of the national an-
thems. A number of addi-
tional awards were given by
the Israel Bond organiza-
tion to a group of active
workers in the Robinson
tribute dinner, with special
acclaim for Fox and Robert
Shapiro.
Israel Bonds will begin
"Six Days for Peace" on Dec.
