Talk Sunday
At Rackham
'Jewry in World of
Tomorrow' Is To Be
Discussed in Lecture
Maurice Samuel, author and lec-
turer, will speak on "Jewry in the
World of Tomorrow" at 3 p.m. Sun-
day at the Rackham Auditorium,
under the auspices of the B'nai Brith
Hillel Foundation.
For the last 15 years Samuel has
been traveling throughout the world
interpreting Jewish values to other
peoples in lectures and in books. On
his current lecture tour his topics
have included "Jewry in the World
Revolution," "Hitler's Last Hope" and
"Palestine and Asia."
His translations of Sholem Asch's
"The Nazarine" and the recent best
seller, "The Apostle," have attracted
interest in this country. Other trans-
lations of his have included those
on the works of I. J. Singer, and the
humorous stories of Sholom Alei-
chem, a Palestinian writer whose
works had not previously been trans-
lated into English.
Of his own books, that which has
attracted the greatest attention in
this country was "The Great Hatred,"
a study of the pathological nature of
anti-Semitism. His treatise on the
character of Jewish civilization, "You
Gentiles," also received acclaim from
American critics.
A group of 200 week-end guests of
the Hillel Foundation, on their an-
nual visit to the University, will at-
tend the lecture. The public is cor-
dially invited to attend.

"serves as a vacation center for
boys who have had difficulty in
adjusting to their environments.
It is staffed by experts in the fields
of psychiatry, psychology and soci-
ology who can make a diagnosis of
each individual case."
The children who are sent to the
camp are chosen by 25 different co-
operating social and case-working
agencies. Included among this group
are the Michigan Child Guidance
Institute, the Council of Social Agen-
cies of Detroit, the Wayne County
Clinic for Child Study and the Michi-
gan Children's Institute.
