Mr. Traison told The
Jewish News, "We're still

$350,000 short, but now it is
an amount that looks doable.
It is the feeling of our mem-
bers that we want to go on,
and we're going to drag on an-
other week or two to see what
happens."
Earlier, Mr. Traison said
the congregation wanted to

complete its pledge drive by
Yom Kippur to have time to
move forward with building
plans or to merge with anoth-
er congregation.
B'nai David sold its South-
field Road building to the city
of Southfield and must move
out of the synagogue next
spring. ❑

Israeli War Hero
Dies In Michigan

ALAN HUSKY ASSOCIATE EDITOR

C

harles E. Crudington, a
gentile hero of Israel's
War for Independence
and a father of Israel's
air force, died Sept. 29 at his
northern Michigan home.
Mr. Crudington was a pilot
during World War II for the
British, Canadian and Amer-
ican air forces. In 1948, sev-
eral Detroiters asked him to
ferry sometimes stolen mili-
tary planes and supplies from
the United States to the fledg-
ling state of Israel.
In a 1973 article in The
Jewish News, Mr. Crudington
described how he single-hand-
edly flew a stolen B-17 bomber
accross the Atlantic from
South America by following a
commercial passenger plane.
After June 1948, Mr. Crud-
ington became a combat pilot
for Israel, flying everything
from tiny Piper Cubs to con-
verted transport planes. Of-
ten, the pilots had to drop
small bombs or grenades from
open cockpit windows.
In an incident immortalized
in the movie Exodus, Mr.
Crudington and his crew
dropped empty bottles from
their unarmed C-47 on an
Arab town that had been fir-
ing at Israeli planes. The bot-
tles "whistled like bombs," he
said, "and scared the day-
lights out of the Arabs."
Mr. Crudington said he put
his life on the line for Israel
"partly for adventure. But if
it were only adventure, we
would have joined the Arabs.
They had better planes and
could offer a lot more pay than
the Israelis...
"I guess I figured Israel was
right. And the others did, too.
The Arabs hated us for that
— more than they hated the
Jews. I remember a fellow
named Finch, a Canadian boy
who was shot down over Beer-
sheva. They staked him, mu-
tilated his body."
Toward the end of the war,
he was asked to establish a
training school for Israeli pi-
lots near Nahariya and was

placed in command of the
school.
Mr. Crudington later re-
turned to Detroit, married,
raised a family and was a
sales representative. In recent
years, he and his family lived
in Luzerne, Mich., east of
Grayling. At his funeral last
week, his family announced
plans to plant trees in Israel
in honor of his service during
Israel's War for Indepen-
dence. ❑
