never make it to the
Billboard charts with a
bullet. Mi Yimalel has a beat,
but you can't dance to it.
There are a couple of dozen
Chanukah standards, but you
never hear them outside a
Hebrew school classroom.
A case in point: A Detroit
radio station here once had a
daily show featuring live
music. A guest on one such
broadcast as a popular local
singer and musician whose
Jewish roots were well
known. After others had their
turns at seasonal music, the
host asked our friend to ac-
quaint them with a
Chanukah song or two.
He had to confess: He didn't
know any.
Chanukah music is folk
music. The musicians with
the most talent, from Franz
Gruber to Richard Carpenter,
have devoted their energies to
the Yuletide carol being sung
by a choir. Small wonder
that's what gets the big
airplay. Even Barbra Strei-
sand and Steve and Edie all
have albums depicting stock-
ings hung by the chimney
with care, featuring the music
of our favorite popular
composers.

Perhaps my partiality to
the music lies in my partiali-
ty toward those composers. So
many of them are — Jewish!
Jules Styne and Sammy
Cahn gave us the 'C' Word
Waltz. (We don't mention the
name of that holiday around
here.) We Need a Little 'C'
Word comes from Jerry Her-
man's score for Mame.
I needn't remind you who
wrote White 'C' Word.
And how about those
chestnuts roasting on an open
fire? The ones made famous
by Nat "King" Cole, who was
certainly no yeshivah bocher.
The 'C' Word Song was writ-
ten by Robert Wells and Mel
Torme. A WASP and an
Italian? Sorry folks — Torme
is Jewish, too.
Then again, hardly
anybody remembers a ditty
called Twelve Days to 'C'
Word written by two boys
named Jerry Bock and
Sheldon Harnick. You know
them better for Sunrise,

Sunset, If I Were a Rich Man,

and other decidedly non-
Christian tunes.
Maybe if those fellows took
a whack at it, we'd hear a lit-
tle Chanukah from our radios
after all.
Season's greetings!

meats here and abroad, hop-
ing to turn the nuclear age in-
to the era of peace.
In Detroit, a dozen women,
mostly Jews, bolstered by 250
members and a mailing list of
more than 500 people, are
meeting once a month,
discussing plans and
strategies to change the state
of the union and educate the
next generation for a more

peaceful existance. The
Detroit chapter is one of five
WAND chapters in Michigan.
But it's not just education
they're interested in, it's ac-
tion and coalition. They are
strong supporters of those
politicans who vow to slash
the nuclear build up, hoping
to change the face of the next
congress. This Tuesday, the
local chapter plays host to
