Mrs. A. C. Fcllman, Women's Division chairman, and her co-chairmen, Mines. Harold Chcrniak, Manfred Krcitstein and Morley Zipursky, voiced excited anticipation about Ambassador Lcshcm's visit. "Every thinking, caring, Jewish woman should be present at this city-wide meeting," the chairmen said. "Ambassador Lcshem is an unusual, personaiity with an exciting background. He is an eloquent speaker with first-hand knowledge of the current crisis. Meeting with him promises to be an unforgettable experience. We urge all women to take advantage of this unusual opportunity.". Mrs. Fellman noted that Ambassador Leshcm has been a p a r t of Israel's Permanent 'Mission;to the United Nations 6ince February, 19G8. "His position gives him full authority to act as Israel's official representative," Mrs. P e 11 m a n said. "In view of the recent actions taken by the United Nations with regard to Israel, we are most fortunate to have the opportunity to get the firsthand information Mr. Leshem will bring us." Underground Leader •Moshe Lesliem was born during the last days of the Austro• Hungarian E m p i r e . He received his primary and secondary e d u c a t i o n in Brno, Czechoslovakia, where he also 1 attended the Thomas G. Masaryk University. His studiesWere interrupted by the Nazi .... : invasion of Czechoslovakia and the subsequent closure of all Universities as he reached tho • equivalent of a B.A. degree. During World War H, Mr, Leshem organized a s m a l l group of young people undergoing training in agriculture in preparation for emigration to Palestine and led them to join the Czech R e s i s t a n c e Movement. The group was engaged in collecting information — -which was clandestinely transm i t t e d to the Czechoslovak 1 Government in Exile residing in London, and through it to Allied Headquarters. In recognition of his activ-

, ities in the Resistance Movement, Mr. Leshem received after the war the Czechoslovak Order for Meritorious Services. He returned his decoration in 1907 in protest over the Czechoslovak G o v eriimenl's hostile attitude towards Israel. After the war, Mr. Leshem turned to journalism. In this capacity he covered the Israel War of Liberation for a group of Czechoslovak newspapers.

Sidelines By Mickey Gereliek If I have .often voiced my support for-views expressed and stands taken by the campus population.: As ah individual I'm entitled to my opinions. ~ From time to time I have been accused of leaning too heavily on the side'of the young people. zPerhapsA have, but as an individual Tin "entitled to lean where I like. Recently, however, there was criticism that the Jewish Press gives too much space to views of young people, without presenting the other side—and that makes me angry. Whatever my personal views may be, the Jewish Press gives space,to all views offered from either side of the" generation gap. If there seems to be. a preponderance of youth views, it's because those are the ones that most often come across my desk. Whatever the "establishment" has to say at the card table or the cocktail party, few ever pen their views for the Jewish Press. A case in point was the recent Confrontation of college youth and adult leaders at a Conference sponsored by Hillel in Washington. In addtion to the news report of the conference, the Jewish Press printed excerpts from a paper delivered TbjrRonald-Wotfson-aUhejneeUing, I'm told that there was much talk around town about Ronnie's paper, but only three chose to write the Jewish Press.

To be sure, they were not yet even in diapers when the Jewish establishment—the American Jewish Congress in particular—launched together with the NAACPtheJegatibattlefoENegro civil rights. Perhaps they were still too preoccupied with the pangs of toilet training or of adolescence to be aware of the fact that during the fifties and sixties the AntiDefamation League and the American Jewish Committee were devoting a major portion of their resources to fighting, not anti-Semitism, but Jim Crowism. They may have been to busy reading "Superman" or "Mad" (or Playboy"?) to have noted the disproportionate number of rabbis in the "freedom rides" and "sit-ins" and voter registration campaigns and southern jail cells.

Never a Dull Moment By Carl Alpert Haifa—In Israel there is as much drama, glamour and excitement on the home front as on the border. Never a dull moment, e v e n for t h e quiet I citizen at home.!

It happened in 1957, on the golf course, when the two were paired against each other in a tournament. At the time Nixon shook hands with Eban, like a good loser. Bachelors Banned. A lawyer Is not permitted to plead a case in a rabbinical court if he Is unmarried. The Minister of Religions explains that since the rabbinical courts deal only with- marrlagef^divorce and.. similar family matters, it is advisable (hat the lawyers have some first hand knowledge of these affairs. Further, principals In such cases, especially women, might; feel squeamish about giving testimony on intimate matters before an unmarried lawyer. 1 Burn the Tax Files.

Women's Division: What Makes It Click? The cily-wide meeting Wednesday, April 16, at Beth' Israel Synagogue will climax the activities in the Women's Division of the 1969 Philanthropies Campaign.

The secret is many women who "care." As chairman of the Women's Division, Betty Fellman cared enough to spend many long hours recruiting the campaign leadership • and meeting with them to formulate campaign "plans. "UnderTher leadership, with the help of her co-chairmen, the activities of the various Women's Divisions were carefully planned and executed, •:.'' ;••""' •'' ' : •' Results in the Women's Div i s i o n thus far show marked I n c r e a s e s -—and it didn't "just happen.". It happened because many women—chairmen, majors, captains' and. workers cared enough to spend their time and.their efforts to get the campaign message to all Jewish women In the community. ; ,.• ; The meeting on April 16 will culminate many hours of work on the part of many women. The names on this page are those of women in our community who care. The pictures represent some of the things (hey care about. It is these women who "care" that make the Women's Division "click."

THE LONG, SLOW JOURNEY TO FREEDOM for these East European migrants has brought them to a transit center, but it will be months before they can move on to permanent havens. While they wait, the Joint Distribution Committee, with funds from the United Jewish Appeal's campaign, must care for them.
