Marcia Beals
Plans to Marry

A young adult unit, com-
prised of singles and young
marrieds age 22-35, has
been established by the
Greater Detroit Jewish Na-
tional Fund Council.
The new unit's objectives
will not be primarily solici-
tation of funds, but, instead
will conduct cultural, social
and educational activities
on behalf of JNF. Heidi
Press will act as coor-
dinator.
The young adult unit also
will provide volunteers for
the JNF Women's Blue Box
clearances and for activities
of the Young Women of
JNF.

According to Miss Press, a
major aim of the young
adult unit is to bring to-
gether Jewish singles and
young marrieds in a dig-
nified atmosphere, not only
socially, but to work to-
gether towards future '
ership positions in .ite
Jewish community.
The group will have its
first gathering 7:30 p.m.
June 10 at the main
Jewish Community Cen-
ter. A JNF film will be
shown, and refreshments
will be served. Admission
is nominal.
For information, call the
JNF, 557-6644.

Israel Busts
Drug Operation

TEL AVIV — The Israeli
police have arrested four
persons, including a belly
dancer, on charges of
smuggling more than
$320,000 worth of heroin
from Iran.
The first discovery was
made May 8 in the luggage
of a Tel Aviv man traveling
with an Iranian passport.
Three arrests followed.

One of the most fascinat-
ing characters in modern
Jewish history might well
be Isaac Strauss, a Parisian
who conducted his orchestra
at dances of the Court of
Napoleon III.
Strauss apparently was
not related to that Aus-
trian family of musicians
who achieved wide popular-
ity throughout Europe in
the 19th and 20th Cen-
turies. As an orchestra
leader and a practicing Jew,
Strauss traveled exten-
sively all over Europe at the
turn of the last century.
During his many sojourns
he indulged in his hobby of
buying Jewish religious ob-
jets d'art. In fact, he devoted
his fortune, time and effort
to collecting the finest
candlesticks, Purim plates,
Torah scrolls and other
examples of the European
Jewish heritage.
In 1878 his unparalleled
private art collection was
displayed for the first time
at the Exhibition of Jewish
Art in Paris. •
When Strauss died his
collection was bought for
30,000 francs by Baro-
ness Nathaniel Mayer de
Rothschild (wife of the
grandson of the first

Baron Rothschild) who
presented the collection
to the Musee de Cluny in
Paris.

Known as the Strauss de
Rothschild Jewish Art Col-
lection it was displayed at
the Musee de Cluny until
the outbreak of World War
II, when, for safe-keeping
during the Nazi occupation
of Paris, the entire collec-
tion was stored in a cup-
board in the cellar of the
Musee de Cluny.
The collection contains an
ark made in Italy in 15

The Musee de Cluny is
willing to transfer the col-
lection to a Jewish museum.

Martyrs Recalled

COPENHAGEN (JTA) —
Jewish resistance fighters
in Denmark's liberation
from the Nazis in World -
War II were commemorated
last week at a ceremony at
the Monument for War
Heroes.
In Vienna, more th a n
6,000 Austrians gathered at
the site of the former Nazi
concentration camp
Mauthausen to attend a
commemoration on the oc-
casion of the 34th anniver-
sary of its liberation.
