GETTING
THE JUMP
ON FALL:

Arab World

Continued from Page 2

would have been wise to let
Israel alone — to let them
irrigate, turn arid land in-
to something green, make
greasy chicken soup and
start some small in-
dustries. Who knows, if the
Arabs hadn't been so
warlike, Israel could have
turned its energies to
peaceful pursuits. And to-
day, instead of watching a
Sony, we might be looking
at a 36-inch Goldberg.
Now the Arabs are irate
because Israel has expand-
ed is borders. Of course it
has. It wised up. When the
Arabs kept attacking and
Israel chased them away,
the Israelis decided that if
they have to keep going
through all that trouble,
they might as well keep a
few acres. Besides, if
somebody is using nearby
hills to lob shells at you,
you'd be silly not to kick
them off the hills.
But we keep hearing that
the Palestinians must have
their homeland. You'd
think that with millions of
square miles of vacant
land, the Arabs could find
them a homeland, the
cheapskates.
Jordan is right next door
to Israel. It would make a
fine homeland. That was
the idea of creating Jordan
in the first place. Lots of va-
cant land. Same climate. If
they'd stop spending their
oil money on bumbling
wars, they could probably
turn Jordan into some-
thing that looks like Palm
Springs.
Instead, we have these
vast, and in some cases,
wealthy countries now
entering their fifth decade
of trying to take over a
place you can barely find
on the map. It makes no
sense. I mean, Israel
doesn't even have one real-
ly good golf course.
The extra shock in taking
into account the Royko
study of the map is the in-
difference to the existing
prejudices of the world
powers, especially the self-
proclaimed democratic
ones. Israel could even-
provide a golf course to
assuage the encompassing
enmities. Instead, there is
the continuing anxiety:
"Whence cometh help!" ❑

here is no way of
singling out a mere
few causes to certify
the multiple achievements in
the life of Charles Milan.
He was truly a "halutz" for

Israel and the Zionist cause —
not only as president of the
Jewish National Fund coun-
cil of Detroit but as a
generous contributor to every
movement in and for Israel. It
was as a volunteer who never
failed to act that he wrote his
name indelibly in the record
of Jewish devotions to Zion
redeemed and the Zionist
cause.
He was among the "halut-
zim," the pioneers and
builders of Israel reborn.
With his surviving wife
Florence, whose mother and
sisters gave themselve entire-
ly to haluyzuit as settlers in
Israel two decades before the
rebirth of Israel, he was un-
failing in activism and the
securing of an contributing to
funds for the movements that
made Israel the great center
of pioneering and the settle-
ment of the hundreds of
thousands rescued from
dangers of threatened
annihilation.
In the same spirit as his
work for JNF, Israel Bonds
and the universities in Israel,
he also gave himself to aiding
cultural activities and
especially in providing means
for the advancement of the
programs of B'nai B'rith
youth. He gave a home in
Canada for their activities
near Windsor and made it
part of his life's work.
He was the humanist par
excellence in his encourage-
ment of every important pur-
pose to aid the needy. This
became apparent only recent-
ly when, during his illness, he
joined his wife in a great task
in behalf of Jewish Associa-
tion for Retarted Citizens.
These devotions were
multiplied no end. He was the
halutz for Israel and the
Diaspora and the man with a
heart for all who needed his
cheers. He earns the acclaim
now given him for a glorious
lifetime. ❑

Clarissa Fineman:
Scholar
Commitment

r. Clarissa Fineman
elevated scholarship
to the highest goals of
study and research. The emi-
nent Ph.D. who held degrees
from Wayne State University
and the University of
Michigan and taught
literature and German at
both, also had qualities of
community leadership.
Until the nearly final days
of her 90 years she hosted
study groups and led in
discussions on world events,
Zionism and authoritatively
on religion and theology. The
latter became major in her
many researched studies. ❑
