Mr. & Mrs. Izzy Gold & Family

top-ranking University of
Michigan administrators.
That's all well and good in his
career — and the record proves
that he began his labors for
state and nation long before his
phenomenal career of the past
three decades. He now has a
50th Michigan anniversary with
an achievement for which every
citizen of this state owes him a
debt of gratitude. When Michi-
gan suffered immensely from
the depression in the early
1930s, Bill Haber began to de-
velop the idea of aiding the un-
employed legislatively. The re-
sult was the adoption of a sys-
tem of unemployment insurance
and out of it grew the unem-
ployment compensation benefit.
It was not an easy task. It
was a battle for justice for the
needy. Haber was called upon to
draft Michigan's legislation to
assure the necessary assistance.
Addressing a joint session of
the Michigan State Legislature,
he overcame opposition and the
Michigan Unemployment Com-
pensation Commission, now
known as the Michigan Unem-
ployment Security Commission,
went into being.
This could be called his first
and most effective act and his
efforts were emulated. ,
Prof. Haber renders important
services to the Israel educa-
tional system. As an adviser on
university affairs he has helped
all of the Israeli colleges and he
is especially valuable to the He-
brew University in his capacity
as a board member and activist
in the university's behalf on the
American scene.
Octogenarian Bill Haber
endlessly merits gratitude for
his social-mindedness, ac-
cumulating congratulations for
noble services for all without
distinction of race or creed.

Ellmann Adds
To Family Record

Many achievements are
linked with the Ellmann family
names. Parents and sons all had
and have much to their credit.
James Ellmann was a High-
land Park municipal judge. His
wife; Jean Ellmann, was an ac-
complished poet and opera and
stage reviewer. Their three sons
certainly inherited their par-
ents' deep interest in cultural
and civic matters. Judge
Ellmann was a devoted Zionist,
Jean Ellmann an inspirer of in-
terfaith interests. Their sons:
Prof. Richard Ellmann is the
world-acclaimed authority on
Joyce and an eminent Oxford
scholar. -
Erwin Ellmann is viewed by
Michigan fellow attorneys as a
brilliant legal scholar and as the
author of the most scholarly
briefs in Michigan law cases,
specializing in labor problems.
Now the youngest of the three
brothers commands attention
and he has acquired the desig-
nation of "Michigan's Busiest
Bureaucrat." Here is why:
Bill Ellmann has just retired
as chairman of the Mackinac Is-

land State Park Commission
and as court-appointed super-
visor of the Ecorse Fire and
Police Department. He held both
state positions simultaneously
while practicing law with em-
phasis on arbitration.
Never abandoning public serv-
ice, Bill Ellmann continues to
head the Michigan Employment
Relations Commission which
arbitrates labor disputes.
That's how the youngest in
the family carries on his civic
interests in the spirit of his
judge-Zionist father. Bill at the
same time retains a deep inter-
est in Israel, in forest-planting,
Jewish National Fund identifi-
cations, in synagogue and re-
lated matters.
That's the notable record of an
accomplished family, and Bill
Ellmann is chiefly in the
limelight.

Gleanings, in the inspiration he

derives from the Bible, his being
recorded in the parade of per-
sonalities is truly merited.

Sachar Praise
For Walter Field

A massive applause accom-
panied the appearance of a Max Fisher
brochure devoted to Bible study
and research by a revered fellow
Detroiter.
As was already recorded in
these columns, Walter L. Field
has gained a top-ranking posi-
tion among Bible scholars with
another of his Gleanings of the
Bible. Scores of Conservative
rabbis and many members of
the Cong. Shaarey Zedek, who
are among the recipients of
copies of the Gleanings, are ex-
pressing appreciation for the
labors exerted by the Detroit
poet-scholar in his Bible studies.
Most impressive is the tribute
accorded Walter Field by one of
American Jewry's most distin-
guished scholars and authors,
Prof. Howard Sachar. Here is a
portion of the Sachar message to
Field:
