The critical nature of this

Campaign leadership, said
Michael Feldman, co-

He said there has been a
growing emphasis on the
importance of properly
training each Campaign
solicitor in light of the in-
creased share of funds De-
troit and other American
cities are committed to rais-
ing in 1983.
A lot is at stake. The
money is needed to support
the work of many be-
neficiaries offering vital so-
cial services both in Israel
and at home. With the bur-
den on the Israeli economy
for defense, and the de-
pressed employment pic,
ture in Detroit and other
cities, there is a special re-
sponsibility for the United
Jewish Appeal campaigns
nationwide to be successful
in this particular year,
Feldman noted.
Detroit has adopted An
accelerated, two-line
Campaign. This means
that solicitation already
is under way for the 1983
Allied Jewish Campaign
while at the same time,
for only the third time in
communal history, an
appeal for immediate
cash (payable by March
15) is sought for the Israel
Emergency Fund.
The facts behind this
year's -appeal were pre-
sented at a major workers'

Syrian Missile
Launcher Hit
After Ambush

Israeli aircraft destroyed a
Syrian SAM-9 anti-aircraft
missile launcher in Leba-
non Monday. A military
spokesman said the attack
was at Deir el-Beida, east of
Beirut and just north of the
Beirdt-Damascus highway.
But government sources
insisted it was not in retal-
iation for the ambush in the
same vicinity Sunday in
which six Israeli soldiers
were killed and 22
The sources said the mis-
sile launcher was knocked
out, in the context of stand-
ing policy to destroy such
weapons whenever the Sy-
rians introduce them into
Lebanon in contravention of
They warned, however,
that Israel would not
pass over the ambush "in
silence. Israel would re-
spond to the "one-sided
breach of the cease-fire"
at a time and place of its
choice, the sources said.
In Washington, the State
Department deplored both
the attack on the Israeli
military bus in Lebanon
Sunday and Israel's appar-
ent retaliation Monday.
