of many of the projects.
Prof. Michael
Schlesinger, a vice
president of the university

search authority, described
how universtiy scientists

Dr. Schlesinger pointed
out that one of the projects is
the study of the increasing
supply of shrimp, which are
abundantly_ available in Is-
rael, as an item of export to
lands where it is in great
demand.
Dr. Schlesinger also
stated that Hebrew Univer-
sity scientists are studying
the breeding of a new ani-
mal — a cross between ante-
lope and goat — for its food
value.

Skyscraper Hit
by Major Fire

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A fire
raged through the upper
floors of a 15-story office
building Nov. 20. More than
20 people were hospitalized
for smoke inhalation after
they were rescued from the
12th and 15th floors by
firemen and Magen David
Adorn ambulance crews.
An army helicopter aided
by dropping gas masks on
the roof of the burning
building. There were no
fatalities or injuries.
The fire, which took three
hours to bring under con-
trol, broke out in the Hadar
Dafna building which
houses the Tel Aviv office of
the Education Ministry, the
Postal Service and many
other offices.

Another program is

Writers Corner
Helper Saluted

6 PCS. REG. $2,792

Editor, The Jewish News:
Twenty years ago, in the
Dexter area branch of the
Jewish Community Center,
Grace Zellman — a dedi-
cated volunteer — formed a
group of seniors called
"Shreibers Vinkle" which
later became "Writers
Corner."
She admonished those
who insisted they could not
write, but would be happy
"to listen," with the advice,
"Write of things you know
and talk about. Put on paper
how and why you left
Europe. You have interest-
ing experiences some times.
Don't worry about your
English."
After Grace Zellman
passed away, Writers
Corner was blessed with
guidance from Norma
Goldman, whose father
Benjamin Wynick was one
of the original members. Al-
though she is a Latin and
English professor at Wayne
State University, an author
and homemaker, she de-
votes countless hours edit-
ing and attending meetings,
which are held at the Ten
Mile Center branch.
Every year there has been
a Writers Journal contain-
ing the articles and poems
which have been approved:
In recent years, Writers
Corner has become "com-
mercial!" The soft-cover
Journal, printed by the
Jewish Community Center,
has prestige — it gets sold at
the annual Jewish Book
Fair, thanks to Norma
Goldman's devotion.
