Music as Bridge Between Nations Marks Hebrew U. Award Event

Music as a bridge be-
tween nations, as a power-
ful communications
medium to assure amity
among peoples of all faiths,
and the role of the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem as
a source for establishing
such advances in human re-
lations, provided a keynote
at the national tribute
dinner in honor of Ernest A.
Jones, who was presented
with the Hebrew University
Torch of Learning Award,
at the Hyatt Regency Hotel,
Dec. 13.
international
Jones,
chairman of D'Arcy-
MacManus and Masius Co.,
who in addition to being an
outstanding national leader
in the advertising field has
made music his chief inter-
est, received recognition at
the dinner on the occasion of
the establishment of a
music scholarship in his
name at the Hebrew Uni-
versity. Inspired by Israel
and the Hebrew University
at his recent visit there to-

gether with singer Frank
Sinatra, Jones returned
here with the conviction
that from Jerusalem could
come the ideal of peace in an
atmosphere of amity that
unites nations in good will
with music.
Anthony G. DeLorenzo,
vice president of General
Motors Corp., as chairman
of the evening, spoke with
admiration of Jones as an
advertising executive for
whom his lifelong love for
music was equally impor-
tant.
The history and the
progress attained by the
Hebrew University were
outlined in addresses by
Prof. William Haber of
the University of Michi-
gan, Stanley M. Bogen,
president of American
Friends of the Hebrew
University, and Erwin
Ziegelman, president of
the Michigan Chapter of
American Friends of the
Hebrew University.

spired by Jones and Sinatra
in the expanding music de-
partment at the Hebrew
Universtiy, gains for which
will be anticipated by the
Jonew scholarship.
The ex t.ning's proceed-
ings commenced with a
standing tribute to the
memory of Golda Meir.
A highlight of the eve-
ning was the presentation of
the award to Jones by
Roberta Peters, renowned
Metropolitan Opera star,
whose major interest is the
Hebrew University in be-
half of which she is volun-
teering her efforts on a na-
tional scale.
The significance of the
event was in the partici-

music, all except less
than a dozen non-Jews.
The enthusiasm shown in
Israel's progressive tasks
in many fields of re-
search, and now addi-
tionally in music, evi-
denced respect for the
creativity that has arisen
in the redeemed Jewish
statehood.
The acclaim for Jones was
supplemented by a message
from Sinatra.
The invocation was given
by the Rev. James Anderson
of the Kirk in the Hills
Presbyterian Church and
the benediction by Rabbi M.
Robert Syme of Temple Is-
rael. The proceedings were
opened by David Koren, di-
rector of the Midwest
Region of American Friends
of the Hebrew University.
Named president of the
agency at age 39, Jones also
is a noted musical conductor
and has directed concert
bands and symphony or-
chestras at the London
Royal College of Music,
Carnegie Hall and the Uni-
versity of Michigan Bands
at Ann Arbor. His work
with the Vienna Chamber
Orchestra in Austria was
recorded.
Addressing the gather-
ing, Ms. Peters said:
From Arthur Rubinstein
and Leonard Bernstein to
Isaac Stern, Yehudi Menu-
hin, David and Igor Ois-
trakh, we have all per-
formed free for our beloved
Israelis. We have raised
funds, here and abroad, for
art and education, and for
the freedom movement, as
an inspiration to providing
cultural continuity, an ar-
tistic link with the world's
cultures, against over-
whelming odds throughout

NEW YORK — A torch
kindled at the tomb of the
Maccabees near Jerusalem
and flown to the U.S. this
week will be used Sunday to
light a Hanuka menora at
the base of the Statue of
Liberty.
The torch will be carried
by members of Masada, the
youth movement of the
Zionist Organization of.
America.

"And so it is with the He-
brew University. While we
recognize that the univer-
sity had to first deal with
the pragmatic problems of a
fledgling society, in recent
years it has moved to the
fore and is one of Israel's
great cultural proprietors.
Under its aegis, the
humanities and the sciences
are united in a common
environment of support and
encouragement. Thus, the
Hebrew University has the
place to nuture talent as
well as intellect.
"Today, young men and
women are taking courses of
study leading towards the
degrees of Bachelor of Arts,
Master of Arts and Doctor of
Philosophy at the Hebrew
University Department of
Musicology. Others are car-
rying out extensive re-
search on the music of the
Jewish people and the Near
East. The electronic music
laboratory is conducting re-
search in the development
of sound production equip-
ment and electronic musical

composition. Finally, stu-
dents at the electronic lab-
oratory for musicological
research are engaged in re-
search to measure the musi-
cal parameters of tone,
pitch, volume and intensity,
as well as the musical
parameters of language.
"These are programs that
stimulate a high degree of
musical achievement and
will assure continuous pro-
gress from generation to
generation."
