lieved to point to stardom in
the musical sphere; and it
served as a platform to em-
phasize the urgency of unin-
terrupted action to protect
Israel and to assure security
and economic opportunities
for the Jewish state.
Two Detroit media, Music
Study Club and the Zionist
Organization of Detroit
through the Balfour con-
certs, have in the past pro-
vided opportunities to ris-
ing stars who later became
world famous. This is the fu-
ture anticipated for 19-
year-old Sergei Edelmann,
the recent arrival from Rus-
sia, who was cheered Sun-
day evening for his impor-
tant piano renditions.
He fared so well on the
choices for his program.
So prolonged was the
acclaim for his perform-
ance that he gave three
brief encores.
His program included the
following: Scarlatti's
Sonata in D Minor, L. 413,
and Sonata in A Major, L.
345; Beethoven's Sonata in
E Major, Opus 31, No. 3 and
4; Chopin's two Etudes,
Opus 10, Nos. 3 and 4; Waltz
C Sharp Minor; Mazurka F
Sharp Minor, Opus 59 No. 3,
Nocturne in F Sharp Major
and Prelude in B Minor.
In a brief address to the
large gathering — the few
empty seats being of those
who purchased seats but did
not attend the event — Irv-
ing Laker, ZOD president,
outlined the aims of the
Zionist Organization, the
objectives of the Detroit dis-
trict in pursuing the public
relations activities.
He declared that the aim
of enlightening the Ameri-
can people on the justice of
Zionist positions will con-
tinue. He declared that the
opposition to the AWACS
proposal was based on a
definite American issue and
that it is in the best inter-
ests of the United States to
avoid giving the extensive
arms to the Saudis.
He said the efforts in
educational aims and de-
fensive programs for Is-
rael will continue and he
invited support for these
aims.
Greeting the capacity
audience were Dr. Lester
Zeff, co-chairman of the Bal-
four Celebration commit-
tee, and Marion (Mrs. Sid-
ney) Leib, who headed the
women's committee.
The audience gave a
warm reception to the sec-
ond concertizer, Marilyn
Michaels. Remembered as
the star in "Funny Girl,"
Miss Michaels appeared as
the master impersonator.
She gave an excellent ac-
count of the stage per-
sonalities of note who star-
red in the theater in the last
half-century. Her Yiddish
rendition of "Rozhinkes mit
Mandlen" indicated she had
continued the tradition of
her famous uncle, Moishe
Oysher, in her knowledge
and love for Yiddish. But an
off color sex tale shattered
the lady's popularity.

Author Elie Wiesel to Speak
at Lubavitch Schaver Event

There was another star on
the Balfour Concert pro-
gram. Max Sosin, co-
chairman of the concert
committee with Dr. Zeff,
may or may not have antici-
pated trekking toward the
podium. But when the guest
artist, Sergei Edelman,
failed to appear for some 25
minutes, after the par-
ticipating Mack Pitt Or-
chestra had already played
the national anthems, sung
by Cantor Harold Orbach,
Max rose to fill in.
"He is a godsend," is the
way he was depicted for fil-
ling the vacuum. He spoke,
told jokes, led the audience
in some singing. By 7:55
Sergei arrived — his delay
providing stardom for
entertainer Max Sosin who
already has a role as a wel-
come Yiddish kibitzer.

ELIE WIESEL

Born in Hungary, Wiesel
was a child when he was
taken from his home and
sent first to the Auschwitz
concentration camp and
then to Buchenwald.
After the Holocaust, he
was taken to Paris where he
lived and worked as a jour-
nalist and writer.

The craven's fear is but
