Good health is vital to

Detroiters Participate in Maas Technion Dorm Dedication

A delegation of 27 De-
troiters were joined by
prominent Israeli leaders
and members of the ad-
ministration and faculty of
the Technion — Israel Insti-
tute of Technology in Haifa,
Israel, in dedicating the Be-
nard L. Maas Michigan
Dormitory on the Technion
campus in Haifa.

The Michigan record in
Technion labors, the sig-
nificance of the Technion as
a world recognized leader in
engineering, science and
technology, was em-
phasized in the dedication
address. Maas also utilized
the occasion to pay honor to
the memory of one of the
major activists for Technion
in Detroit, Sam Rich, whose
planned participation in the
Maas Building dedication
was precluded by his death
earlier this year.
In his address, Maas said:
"This is the day I have
long looked forward to
and I am grateful to the
Almighty that I have
been spared in health
and in strength to come
here from DetrOit and to
present this dormitory
building to Technion
I believe in Technion. I
believe in its ideals, its
programs, its dedicated
people who are laboring
even in dangerous times,
to train young engineers
who will contribute to the
national needs of Israel.

"I believe in the young
people who are students
here. All my life I have ac-
cumulated business profits
so that I could give them
away as my contribution to
the future of the Jewish
people. Technion's young
people represent a vital part
of our future.
"Technical education and
scientific research centers
are conducted here at
Technion. They are vital to
the future of Israel. The
students at Technion need
adequate living quarters for
them to pursue their
engineering studies in
safety and security. This
Michigan dormitory we are
dedicating here will long
stand as Detroit's presence
where the young men and
women of Technion can look
down over the Haifa Bay
and touch our hands,
stretched across the sea.
"There is one person who
no longer is in this world,
who is very much in this
dormitory being presented
today. Sam Rich of Detroit,
who passed away during
this year, gave a lifetime of
devotion to Technion. In a
way, he was the driving
spirit that made this day
possible, and I know his
memory will be blessed by
the students who pass
within these walls."
The delegates from De-
troit included: Maas,
Benard L. Mass, Jr.,
Mrs. Ruth Maas, Mrs.

Security Precautions Made
for Geneva Palestine Parley

GENEVA (JTA) --- Secu-
rity preparations for the
conference on Palestine,
scheduled here from Aug.
29 to Sept. 7, has moved into
high gear. It was officially
announced that 1,720 Swiss
soldiers and 1,000 police-
men will guard the United
Nations complex where the
conference will take place.
Officially, the army and
police are not allowed into
the complex itself because it
is extra-territorial. How-
ever, the gardens around
the complex are the prop-
erty of the city and thus the
army and police can be
stationed there.
Meanwhile, the Swiss
daily, Le Courier, reported
that a Neturei Karta dele-
gation from Jerusalem will
participate as observers at
the conference. The sect's
spokesman, Rabbi Moshe
Hirsch, said the delegation
would represent "The Jews
from Palestine." He was
also quoted as saying. that
the delegation would con-
demn the "Zionist state."
It is understood that
the secretariat of the con-
ference intends to invite
other Israelis, such as

lawyer Felicia Langer,
who are publicly active
on behalf of the Palesti-
It was also announced
that Palestine Liberation
Organization chief Yasir
Arafat will be attending the
conference. According to a
UN source, heads of states
will_ not be participating,
only Foreign Ministers.
In a related development,
the Detroit News reported
that anti-Israel Detroit area
Arabs will be taking a mes-
sage of pro-Arafatism to the
Geneva parley.
The 50 delegates will re-
present the Federation of Is-
lamic Associations in the
U.S. and Canada, Inc. The
secretary-general of the
organization said he plans
to present a position paper
at the conference which de-
clares the PLO to be "the
only representative of the
Palestinian people."
The organization, which
has held nongovernmental
organization status at the
UN for 10 years, said it will
attend the conference to
"support the Palestinian
people's cause of self-
