the dedication.
Acknowledging the
recognition accorded him,
Mr. Blumberg, in his re-
sponse to the several brief
addresses, paid tribute to
the memory of his wife.
Recalling her devotion to
many causes, he said that
her chief interest was the
welfare of children and her
emphasis was on the handi-
capped. "Had Edith been
here," he said, "this would
have been one of her most
glorious days."
Blumberg expressed
gratitude to Leonard Si-
mons and spoke of a lifetime
of association in communal
affairs which inspired him
to add his name to the iden-
tification of the Haverim
Home he was establishing.
Simons, acknowledg-
ing the honor accorded
him, responded with an
acclaim for the services
rendered by JARC.
Robert Steinberg, Blum-
berg's nephew, who
presided at the dedication
ceremonies, took occasion to
commend his uncle for his
many generous gifts to
worthy causes and for his
devoted efforts in many
spheres. He also corn-
mended Simons for his asso-
ciated labors with Blum-
berg.
Rabbi Irwin Groner, who
affixed the mezuza to the
dedicated Haverim home,
preceded the traditional
ceremony with an address
drawing upon Jewish teach-
ings to emphasize the com-
passion which motivates
labors like JARC's.

Philip Slomovitz added to
the appreciation for the
services rendered by recal-
ling, in brief remarks, the
commencing years of strug-
gle to create a movement to
aid the retarded, and the re-
sulting successes giving
firmness to an important
movement. He pointed to a
continuing need to provide
additional homes for the
many scores of applicants
for JARC's services.

Guests at the dedica-
tion of the Blumberg
Haverim Home included
Michigan State Repre-
sentative David C. Hollis-
ter and C. Patrick Bab-
cock, director of Michi-
gan's Department of

New Tel Acco Discoveries
Make It 1,000 Years Older

HAIFA — During this
ninth season of excavations
at Tel Acco — sponsored by
the University of Haifa and
the University of Marburg,
Germany — archeologists
and volunteers found the
remains of a settlement
from the first Canaanite
period of approximately
3100-2900 BCE.
This discovery, revealed
by the unearthing of var-
ious clay vessels, indicates
that the beginning of set-
tlement on the tel predates
earlier estimates by about
1,000 years.
During the excavation,
the skeleton of a horse was
found buried in a layer of
rubble dating to the middle
Canaanite period. Graves
from the late Bronze Age
that had been dug into the
fortifications of the city
were also uncovered. Sev-
eral of these contained clay
vessels including a few very
rare pieces decorated in two
tones.
One jar, of a style
known as "chocolate and
white" is only the second
piece of its kind to be
found in Israel.

While excavating an area
of the western slope of the
tel, volunteers under the
supervision of Dr. Michal

Artzi, the University of Hai-
fa's associate director of the
Tel Acco dig, uncovered two
unique types of stone graves
— some convex and some
rectangular. These, accord-
ing to Artzi, date from the
middle Canaanite period
and the beginning of the
late Canaanite period
(2000-1600 BCE).
The convex grave yielded
a very rich find of scarabs
(jewelry), some of which
were combined with gold
rings. The rectangular
graves yielded clay vessels
similar to those of Syrian or
Anatolean (Turkish) origin.
In other areas on the tel,
relics were found dating
back to the Iron Age and the
late Canaanite period, in-
cluding clay vessels deco-
rated in a monochromatic
style believed to be con-
nected to the Shardan
people, a group of seafaring
mercenaries who, like the
Phoenicians, settled the
coastal areas around 1200
BCE.
Aided by volunteers
from the United States,
England, West Germany
and the University of
Copenhagen, the ar-
cheologists found many
important pieces includ-
ing an ivory cosmetic
container formed in the
shape of a duck, and a
bronze image of the idol
Baal. The archeologists
place the dates of these
pieces close to the 13th
century BCE.
During a press confer-
ence, at the end of the exca-
vation season, Prof. Dothan
stressed, "In view of the
unique importance of the
site, the National Parks
Authority in Israel should
take immediate steps to
protect the excavations
from vandals."

Truth accomplished no
victories without
enthusiasm.
