George and Ira Ger-
shwin's surname was actu-
ally Gershovitz, but was
Americanized to Gershvin
by his father. On his birth

certificate, the name reads
Gershwine, but George
changed that spelling when
he became a professional.

Journalist's View of Jewish History Provided by Smolar

By DAVID FRIEDMAN

Inc.)
WASHINGTON — Jour-
nalists have been arguing
for years whether they
should be more involved
with their subjects or re-
main impartial observers.
This has never been a ques-
tion for Boris Smolar,
editor-in-chief of the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency from
1939-1967 and editor-in-
chief emeritus since then.
In his more than 60 years
as a Jewish journalist, Smo-
lar was involved in every
tragedy and triumph ex-
perienced by the Jewish
people. His new book of re-
miniscences, "In the Service
fo My People" (Baltimore
Hebrew College) is aptly
named.
Born in 1897 in Rovno,
the Ukraine, Smolar
studied journalism at
Northwestern University
and worked for the Jewish
Daily Forward in the early
1920s. He still writes a
weekly column for the
Yiddish-language news
paper. In 1924, he joined the
JTA as an associate editor
and in the 1930s he was its
chief European correspon-
dent. During that time he
also wrote for the New York
World and other newspap-
ers.
Smolar's new book is
not an autobiography but
a recollection of some of
his experiences as a jour-

Questions concerning the
alleged Jewish affinity for
money are explored in a
new, 267-page book by
Gerald Krefetz —"Jews and
Money: The Myth and the
Reality" (Ticknor and
Fields).
Krefetz debunks the
myths, half-truths and out-
right fictions which suggest
that Jews own and control
banking, industry and
communications in the
United States — although
he says they are increas-
ingly represented in these
fields.
At the same time, he ob-
serves, Jews have attained
a higher standard of living
and earn more money than
any other group of Ameri-
cans. With less than three
percent of the population,
Jews comprise almost 20

percent of the nation's very
rich. Jews in general have
succeeded better eco-
nomically than non-Jews:
Jewish family incomes are
72 percent higher than the
national average.
Drawing on facts,
statistics, anecdotes and
a wealth of research, Kre-
fetz tells where the
Jewish money is and
where it is not. Sensitive
to the controversial na-
ture of his subject, he of-
fers a fresh perspective of
the world of monied Jews
in America.
A business writer and fi-
nancial consultant, Gerald
Krefetz has written numer-
ous books on finance and
public affairs. His last ef-
fort, "The Smart Investor's
Guide," was a Fortune Book

nalist abroad, in particu-
lar, his years in the early
days of Stalin's Soviet
Union, 1928-1930; Ger-
many just before the rise
of Hitler and the early
days of the Nazi period;
Poland and Romania
1930s; pre-state Eretz Is-
rael and the United Na-
tions during the estab-
lishment of the Jewish
state.
The book is full of many
incidents and anecdotes
and should serve as a
vein of information for
Jewish historians. Prob-
albly one of the most
poignant moments is
shortly after the UN vote
on partition, which
allowed Israel to be es-
tablished, when Moshe
Shertok came looking for
Smolar as he was cabling
the story. "At this historic
moment I want to thank
you for all you have done
for us," Shertok told him.
Despite all the tragedies,
Smolar ends his book with a
reaffirmation of his belief in
the survival of the Jewish
people, principally because
of the Jewish commitment
to social justice. "I have
witnessed the severest
tragedies which befell the
Jewish people as well as
their magnificent rebirth,"
he wrote.
"In my lifetime, I saw op-
pression and anti-Semitism
