ON CLIENT'S PERSONAL STYLE
I listen and I keep my agenda quiet. So when I go into a project it's not about me. It's a
collaboration. It's the client's concepts and my concepts; what emerges is a self-expression
of my client. That's the ideal.

The attention now given to
ORT provides a wonderful
opportunity to recall the
name and services of one of
the distinguished Jewish
leaders of this generation,
the late Professor William
Haber, who was outstanding
in the ranks at the Univer-
sity of Michigan academics.
I would like to use a simple
story from my heavy file
about Bill Haber. In the
Detroit Free Press of Oct. 12,
1979, I quoted another dear
friend, Frank Angelo, then
managing editor of the Free
Press. It gives me an oppor-
tunity to thank Frank and to
remind him of the years of
mutual cooperation in jour-
nalism in Detroit. Here is
what he wrote 12 years ago:

Bill Haber is one of
those delightful people
who, at age 80, can be
rather convincing when
he says, " I'm young

enough to dream of seeing
the (Middle East's) dream
become an Iowa a
breadbasket again."
But then that's not
unusual because Haber,
who has spent the greater
part of his life on the Uni-
versity of Michigan cam-
pus, has seen plenty of
dreams converted into
realities.
Haber's latest dream
developed in recent
weeks as he flew above
the Nile River in Egypt,
noting how a thin strip of
land on each side (which
had been watered) was
verdant.
"Just think of what
might happen if we can
succeed in the desaliniza-
tion of the Mediterranean
and that's not far-
fetched and the water
could be used to irrigate
more of the desert," he
said. "Israel has already
demonstrated how much
can be done."
Our readers will gather
from what has already been
stated about Bill Haber,
ORT and Frank Angelo that
there is a duty to keep em-
phasizing the positive
regarding Israel. We learn
here, additionally, the
values I have assembled in
my treasured archives.

NJCRAC Panel Hears
Pollard Case Arguments

New York — A special Na-
tional Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council
panel has heard from both
sides in the Jonathan
Pollard case, but has yet to
decide whether to get in-
volved in the highly con-
troversial spy case.
Mr. Pollard's supporters
want the ad hoc NJCRAC
panel to throw its weight
behind legal efforts to gain a
new trial for the convicted
former naval intelligence of-
ficer, who is currently serv-
ing a life sentence. Sup-
porters consider Mr. Pollard
a Jewish hero for giving
Israel classified information
about Iraqi and Syrian
military strength and say
his life-term was excessive.
In a closed-door New York
meeting on May 9, the panel
heard from former U.S. At-
torney Joseph diGenova,
who prosecuted Mr. Pollard,
and Alan Dershowitz, Mr.
Pollard's attorney. Seymour
Reich, former chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish

ON USING MICHIGAN DESIGN CENTER
The Michigan Design Center is wonderful for me. I'm there a lot
and it's great to be able to take a client there. My
clients can see the service that the showrooms
provide the designers. If I ask the showroom to
please communicate to the factory the
importance of having the upholstery tailored
in a particular way, they share my concern;
and that is what is important to me in
representing my client. I support the people
that support me.

Organizations, also took
part in the meeting.
In a brief statement, Phil
Baum, American Jewish
Congress associate executive
director and chairman of the
NJCRAC panel, said the
committee will reconvene
"within the next six weeks."
The ad hoc panel is corn-
posed of representatives
from the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith and
the American Jewish Com-
mittee, among others.

Do Spies
Watch Settlers?

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Gush
Emanim settlers on the
West Bank have said Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
ordered the Shin Bet,
Israel's internal intelligence
agency, to spy on them so the
government would be spared
such surprises like the re-
cent establishment of two
new settlements. The Prime
Minister's Office denied the
charge.

ON WHAT DESIGNERS OFFER
I can create a vision out of what a client says to me. Secondly, I
have a source of materials not available to the client. What I
bring to the party is my availability, materials, artists, workrooms,
tradespeople and sources. I come with baggage.

ON CARING & RELATIONSHIPS
Probably the main quality that I can bring to a project is taking care of my clients. The
service and the commitment to the project emanate from that care. It's being there; with
the painter on a touch up, on delivery. It's all of that attention and devel-
oping a relationship of trust which is fundamental for a project to
even get off the ground. It's an integral part of a successful design.
