KEEPING ME
DREAM ALIVE

What is charity . . . (at its
belt)? The Octet giNies with-
out knowing to whom he
gives; the recipient receives
without knowing from
whom he takes it.
—Baba Bathra 10a

same themes that occupy
the minds of all writers.
The annual Jewish Book
Fair has given us the oc-
casion to sell our journal
and return the money to
the Center so that we can
continue publishing.
Each Book Fair we have
sold out completely. The 10
a.m. meeting on the third
Friday each month is one of
the highlights of my life. I
learn more from the writers
than they do from me.
Since 1945 I have been
teaching English and
classics at Wayne State
University. Because Friday
is my day off, I have been
able to attend the meetings
of the Writers' Club, listen-
ing to blind Mr. Ross de-
scribe his life in Russia,
Mrs. Burchardt her life in a
Shanghai ghetto, Mr.
Joyrich read his transla-
tions of Hebrew and Yiddish
poetry, and Mina Stone her
translations of Pushkin.,
When composition stu-
dents at the university
grope for ideas, I wish they

cOuld listen to my writers
read their works. I guess it
comes from the writers hav-
ing lived such full lives that
they are able to see beauty,
pattern and meaning in a
snowflake or a blade of
grass.

Cruelty and fear shake
hands together.
