Minnesota Attorney
General Hubert H. Hum-
phrey III reminisced about
his late father's love for and
pride in Israel at the annual
Jewish National Fund tes-
timonial dinner Wednesday
at Adat Shalom Synagogue.
Speaking to nearly 400
persons who paid tribute to
Norman and Esther Allan,
recipients of the JNF's
Crown of the Good Name
Award for "their efforts on
behalf of Jewish and civic
causes," Humphrey said his
late father, the former U.S.
Vice President, "was fasci-
nated by Israel. There was a
pride with which Dad would
inform me of what was
going on in Israel."
Sounding much like his
famous father,. Humphrey
said he recalled that visitors
from Israel were always
guests in his parents' home
and that his parents made
frequent trips to Israel.
The younger Humphrey
recalled attending the dedi-
cation of the Hubert H.
Humphrey Memorial
Parkway in Israel. "This
seemed to symbolize every-
thing he wanted in the
world," Humphrey said, de-
scribing the tranquility of
the scene. "The parkway is
where families would find
their own familial peace.
That's what this whole
business is — peace."
Humphrey called it an
"honor to walk into Hadas-
sah Hospital (in Jerusalem)
to see the Hubert H. Hum-
phrey Cancer Research
Center" and said that
Ben-Gurion University of
the Negev had established
the Hubert H. Humphrey
Center for Social Ecology in
memory of his father.
"It's what my father was
about," he said, "How to
solve these people-to-people
problems."
He spoke of the need for
Israel's security, "Israel
needs to have security — to
have the trust essential to a
democratic society. Security
becomes a sense of
neighborhood, community
with the land. More than
weapons, Israel needs secu-
rity. That's terribly impor-
tant to understand."
Referring to the JNF land
reclamation, road-building
and reafforestation projects,
Humphrey said he was im-
pressed by the progress Is-
rael has made each time he
visits the Jewish state.
He said the history of Is-
rael paralleled that of the
U.S., adding that "It's
strongest when you look at
people coming to clear the
land, coming to live in free-
dom."
Humphrey said support of
Israel is in the U.S. national
interest. "Our lifestyles,

economy are affected by greetings on behalf of the
events in that part of the JNF of Detroit were

The diverse stage and film
career of Red Buttons

BY HERBERT G. LUFF

Hollywood — Red But-
tons recently celebrated his
65th birthday, a quarter-
century after winning his
Academy Award for Sayo-
nara, in which he portrayed
a tragic role opposite Mar-
lon Brando.
Buttons, whose real name
is Aaron Chwatt, got his
quaint label because of his
red hair and blue eyes. As a
kid singing at street corners
in the Lower East Side of
Manhattan, he made his
professional debut in the
Coopermans choir with the
then famous cantor, Yus-
sele Rosenblatt. The
Catskills became his train-
ing grounds; at the Beerkill
Lodge he worked for $1.50
per week plus room and
board. At 20, he graduated
to Minsky's; two years later,
he did his first Broadway
show.
In 1943, Red joined the
Army Air Corps where Moss
Hart picked him for the
show, Winged Victory. After
the war, he appeared in sev-
eral Broadway shoals and,
with the big bands, played
New York's movie houses;
later came the cafe circuit,
the Copa Cabana and Latin
Quarter. After guest star-
ring on a number of TV
shows, he got his own, The
Red Buttons Show, on CBS.

Sayonara, none-the-less,
changed his image in the
industry. Buttons was of-
fered serious roles as well as
comedy parts. The stage and
screen veteran has ap-

peared in dozens of movies,
including: Imitation Gen-
eral, The Big Circus, Hatari,
The Longest Day, They
Shoot Horses, Don't They?,
The Poseidon Adventure
and Off Your Rocker. His
dramatic roles on television
go back to the medium's
early days. Buttons ap-
peared numerous times on
Playhouse 90, The U.S.
Steel Hour, Studio One and
General Electric Theater.



Arnon Milchan, the Is-
raeli tycoon who made him-
self a name in the cinema
with the production of the
TV epic, Masada, is at the
helm of Legend, a fantasy-
adventure from an original
screen play by William
Hjortsberg, now filming at
the British Pinewood
Studios for 20th Century-
Fox with Tom Cruise head-
ing the cast.



Michael York, the British
screen star now residing in
Hollywood, made his very'
first French-language ap-
pearance in Au Nom de
Tous - Les Miens, shot on
locations in Hungary
thereby duplicating the
Polish background of the
story. York portrays a
young Jew in the ghetto of
Warsaw who survives
though his mother and
brothers are gassed at Treb-
linka and his father killed
during the uprising.
