Can you imagine
not worrying about cancer?

That's why we've designed the only
medical center dedicated exclusively
to early cancer detection—with every
cancer screening test all under
one roof: The American Cancer
Detection Centers.

The choice is up to you: Cancer
doesn't have to mean death, dis-
figurement or destruction of your
family. Cancer can be the most
curable of all serious diseases, with
early detection.

A cancer detection exam
just makes good health
sense — like routine dental

That's why the American Cancer
Society recommends a cancer
detection exam at least once a year
for all men and women over forty,
and at least every three years for
everyone between twenty and forty.


It's always been a fact of life, early
cancer detection — before the
traditional symptom and warning
signs appear — simply increases
\\ your chances of living.

board of governors and a vice
president of JWF), and other
Wayne Feinstein, executive
director of the Jewish Welfare
Federation, calls Robinson "an
extraordinary community
leader." Feinstein praised
Robinson's chairing of the
1984 Allied Jewish Campaign
and said Robinson "led us to
very new heights, particularly
in the area of campaign and
corporate gifts."
Aviva has also taken an
active role in communal af-
fairs although she explains
that "up until recently there
was no way I could get in-
volved actively because the
women's meetings were al-
ways held during the day. I
have a feeling that the women
of our generation who did
work, and there weren't that
many of us, were working and
running homes and raising
children and had so many
other jobs to do that it was im-
possible to do charity work at
that period of our lives any-
way." In addition to her efforts
for Sander Levin, Aviva has
served as co-chairman for
January's Cranbrook Insti-
tute of Science Fundraising
Fair, and with her husband
has been involved in activities
supporting the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra and Wayne
State University.
Jack has been active in a
number of Pontiac-based
community organizations in-
cluding the United Way of
Pontiac, the Pontiac Urban
League, the Boy's Club and
the Pontiac Symphony Or-
chestra. (The Perry headquar-
ters complex is in Pontiac.)
When he was still just "Jack
the pharmacist" to the cus-
tomers of his first Perry Drug
Store, Robinson says he fre-
quently was asked to run for
city council. Does he regret not
having chosen a career in poli-
"Not at all,' replies Robin-
son. "When I see what some of
the politicians in this county
have to go through to get re-
elected, I am glad Aviva
talked me out of it."
How did Aviva talk Jack out
of it? "Very simply," she re-
plies. "I told him — you get
involved in politics and you're
Now Jack picks up the cue.
"We decided we wanted to stay
happily married and we have
been. It takes quite a personal-
ity who can persevere the
barbs and indignations which
are thrown at politicians. I
have no political aspirations.

At this stage of my life I enjoy
very much what I'm doing
from_ a business viewpoint,
from a family viewpoint, from
a community viewpoint, and I
feel I can express myself well
Aviva is obviously quite
pleased with her husband's re-
sponse. She says, "Jack's posi-
tion as an entrepreneur per-
mits his wife to open her

How did Aviva talk
Jack out of it? "Very
simply. I told him —

politics and you're

mouth. He's not going to lose
his job. And I'm very outspo-
ken. It would be very tough for
me to get into a political or
corporate environment. I'm
very expressive and I have
some strong opinions: And I
say them."
Jack seems a bit nonplus-
sed, for the first and only time
that night. "But you have sur-
vived in a corporate environ-
ment up to •now,'! he ad-
monishes his wife.
"It's not a corporate
environment," she retorts,
"it's your company."
"But it's a public company. I
have 5,000 shareholders out
there . ."

Peres Visits
Arab Village

Jerusalem (JTA) — Premier
Shimon Peres received an
enthusiastic welcome Tuesday in
the Bedouin township of Rahat in
the Negev, his first visit to an
Arab community since he took
office last year.
Hundreds of flag-waving
youngsters greeted him with
songs and by beating drums when
he arrived at the local school. He
told the cheering students, "Be-
fore we make peace in the entire
region, we must make peace in-
side the State of Israel, between
the young andthe old, between
Jews and Arabs."
Peres was accompanied by Ezer
Weizman, a Minister-without-
Portfolio assigned to the Prime
Ministers Office where he deals
with matters of concern to Israel's
Arab population.
