Cabinet Backs Rabin in Visit WASHINGTON - Israel Premier Yitzhak Rabin carried wttta him Into hi* meeting this week with President Ford the endoneoMiit of his policies by the Israeli Cabinet. Following a marathon debate, the Cabinet made It dear that Israel stands fast on its position of last March toward a second-stage interim agreement with Egypt, and would reexamine Us potition only if' 'parallel changes were forthcoming In the Egyptian jjosltlon." The statement indicat«l that Isriel favored a resumption of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's step-by-step approach as the

most "realistic" method of advancing toward an Interim settlement under present condiliona, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported. But, the Cabinet also stated that Israel was prepared to reach agreements with all of Its Arab neighbors "whether within the Geneva framework or outside It, whether through the means of peace treaties or ttvough interim settlements." Menachem Belgln, leader of the Herut wing of Likud, expressed approval of the Cabinet's statement. Premier Rabin is to meet privately today with a delegation of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish

Organizations at Blair House. In another development, the U.S. State Department announced that Syria's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Abda-Hilim Khadam, will confer with President Ford and Kissinger June-20.

popular music, for the "Golden Oldies" wwe not of the '30s, but rather of ao^md nnore years ago; the folk music was not American folk, but Israeli; and the native tunes were not "country-andwestem" but "Country and Easter (European)". The formal evening suits of the six talented singers along with their piano and cello accompaniment made the event appear like a Joslyn Chamber Music concert or an Orpheum operatic performance. This elegance contrasted nicely with tlie warmth of a

down-home, foot-stomping, stirring rendition of the Israeli hand-clapplQg Ixioteiiany — version of "Off we go, into the wild Blue Yonder" - "Hel Jowish otyie. Whetbar staging barllDDt or Tziyon" — and by Cantor tooor or In-between, tlie Pinchas Spiro of Des Moines Haxzans amply displayed Tifereth, who sang an Israeli thrir professional talent.

The finale featured the Beth El Synagogue, who did a

entire cast in a sing-along medley featuring such Hassldic tunes as "Heenay Mahtov" and "Y'vorecb Echaw". At curtain time, the performers acknowledged the chairman of the event, Jeanne LIpsey, whose concert committee handled the lastminute rush for tickets by arranging for additional onstage seating. The only regret lor this reviewer was that more younger people didn't attend and see for themselves that their elders appreciate "popular" music as well.

OMAHA - There is only one way to describe Uie June 8 Cantorlal Concert in the Jewish Community Center Theater — and that way is with tlie worlds "huge success." It was grandly successful from three perspectives — from the standpoint of turnout — an overflow crowd of 600 persons; from ttie standpoint of technical achievement — Uie six cantors were very well received and Sam Fried made a good tape recording: and, most importantly, from the standpoint of the benefit to the Cantors Assembly. "Our goal was to raise $1,000 for the Cantors Assembly," Jeanne Lipsey, chairman of the benefit program said, "and at this point (Monday, tlie day after the concert) it looks like we'll have more Uianthat."

Mrs. Lipsey promised that a full financial report on the program would be forthcoming. "It was an electric 'It was Just taatastle bqrond aU nThe standing ovations accorded the Cantors by the crowd during and after the performance Indicated how well it was received. The audience filled the Theater, flowing onto the stage where special seating was set up. Featured were Cantor Aaron Eklgar, cantor emeritus of Beth El Synagogue, and his son Rafael of Temple Beth ZIon in Buffalo, NY; Cantor Chaim Najman of Beth El and Cantor Leo Fettman of Beth Israel; Cantor Pinchas Spiro of Tifereth Israel Synagogue In Des Moines; and Cantor Leon Llssek of Congregation B'nai Amoona In St. Louis. A

delegation of 44 Des Moines concert-goers came with Cantor Spiro. It was, said Cantor Edgar, the first time in Omaha that a number of local cantors had joined with others from outside the city to give a concert. "We were pleased with the reception of our program," said the Hazzan, who became cantor emeritus at Beth El In 1972 but who has been kept active by the many requests for his singing. Longtime observers commented that, while be still sings with his (dd verve, Cantor Aaron's voice is mellower and that son Ray sounds like his father did at his age. For his part, Ray was Impressive In his stage presence and gave a good accounting in his rendition of "Shalom" from the musical "Milk and Honey". The voices of Cantors Lissek

and Najman, both of whom showed great range, were particularly pleasing and many were strongly impressed by the sincerity and feeling expressed by Cantors Spiro and Fettman. "'It was a gratifying experience," summed Cantor Aaron Edgar, and few would disagree. For his part, Sam Fried, who served as recording engineer, was fairly well satisfied with the overall quality of his tope. "There will definitely be a casette made for the Jewish Federation Library," he said, adding that several people already have asked him to cut casette tapes for them, too. Whether or not records also will be made remains to be seen, he said, although he received many Inquiries from concert-goers Sunday night.

TEL AVIV (ZINS) - Criticism haa been voiced against Israel's newspapers, TV and radio for constantly streodng the negative aspects of life such as corruption, bribery, economic scandals, thievery, nepotism, etc. Critics complain that one never reads or hears of positive achievements, of which there are ao many. The media people respond by saying it is not their task to report on those aspects of society which function normally. Th^ argue that the task ot the press and of the other communlcatloBs • media is to pofait op tiie negative side, sp that these evils can be rooted out.

Special attention is called to that part of the letter In which (he senators speak of America's commitment not only to insure Israel's "existence" but also her "security": and of the necessity for a Mideast solution ^ which would assure Israel "secure, ' rooopiixed and defensible borders by direct negotiation between the parties."

No SOUTHBURY Conn. (JTA) - American Jews were told to cease making President Ford and Secretary of State Kissinger the "leape goata" for their concern and frustrations ibmit Israel's future and the impasse in peace proopecU in (he Mkhfle East. Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, Presidsnt of the Union of American Hebrew CongregatlOM. told members of the Board of TraMats. meeting here that (he time has come to "ceaie the black mood and doom and put an end (o over-reaction and yielding (o despair" by to many "of our people."

However, the same sources are quick to note that the concept, "secure and recognised boundaries", can n>ean different tjiingi to different people. This Is already evkient from the known pooltion of Senator McGovem, wiM also happens to be one of the signatories to the senatorial letter. Furthermore, It is necessary to keep in mind, say the experts, titat it is not the Senate or House of Representatives but the Administratkm that is responsible lor the sale of bombers and missiles; and this fact cannot be ignored.

He said that "both the President and Mr. Kissinger still represent the only atatesmen capable of moving Mideast negollatkins off dead center at the present stage. To vilify them and destroy their diplomatic position la a disservice to peace and to Israel Itself."

Nevertheless, on balance, the letter of the senators is an impressive document and an Important gain lor Israel, especially at a time when Congress Is demanding a more central role in the formulation of foreign policy.

Teacher Training institute Gets Enthusiastic Response By Judith Marburg OMAHA - "How do you feel about being Jewish, about Jewish topics?" These were among the main questions educators In the Omaha area's religkius and Jewish schools were asked to better enable them to Impart a knowledge of Judaism to their students. The occasion was a teacher training institute June 24 at the Jewish Community Center on "The Teaching of Prayer — An Inquiry into the Siddur" which was conducted by Dr. Saul Wachs of Brandeis University. Stanley MitcheU, educational director of Beth El Synagogue coordinated the sessions. The institute, which was attended by about 24 Omaba and Lincoln area teachers and rabbis, elicited a variety of enthusiastic comments on both the program and Dr. Wachs. Sblrley 8|ritxer opeoed, "We are very fortunate to bava tbe support of tbe Department of Jewish Education of tbe Fedaratlon to bring In a icboUr such as Dr. Wachs. We ahB preaenlly vary limited in formal (Jewisb) etliicatkwuil opportualtlea In Omaba" and this hdped to flll the void, she Said Margo Riekes of Or, Wachs, "He Is so humble, he touches you" and Blanche Wise commented, "I would Uke to attend classes with him." "Jewish educational techniques have lagged far behind advances in education in general," said Dr, Wachs. In 1959 Samuel Melton set up a

Another technique Dr. Wachs employed was that of having some of the teachers prepare model lessons which were then critiqued by the other participants. Eleanor Whitman, who prepared one of the model lessons, said Dr. Wachs is "a rare combination, a scholar, knowledgeable in many areas, who relates to people and is stimulating."

Itioiit such exercise, on tM' subject "Jews are the Chosen People," Dr. Wachs put signs In the four comers of the room — "True", "A DangerousMyth", "A Necessary Myth" and "An Ethical Challenge" — and had the teachers gather under the sign which best expressed his or her feelings on the topic. The groups then debated the points of view among themselves.

We Sti/i Have Friends in Africa HAIFA - When the smoke had cleared after the great Arab diplomatic offensive in 1973 we found that 28 of the new, young, developing states of Africa had abruptly broken diplomatic relations with Israel. Among them were countriea which had received very conaiderable technological, cultural and moral assistance from Israel, some of them at a time when others did not want to have too much to do with them larael's foreign policy hi Africa was a complete shambles, it seemed. To be sure, we understood the reaaons wtticfa bnpelled our friends to turn their backs on us.

The Time to Start All Over Again

By SHBRYLLEONARD Raprinlad from Iba Chicago Sandnal A communication came in recently that refreshed by recollection of a time in my past. It was from a woman who wanted to know wtiat she could do alxHit twing alone. She had no car and couldn't get out much. The few singles events she did manage to attend, however, were unsatisfying for her. She was groping and wanted to knav/ where to go from here. '" The note left me sad and thhiking. What doea one do?

Jewish Genetic Diseases Causes and Cures Being Studied BjrOMiatCraiiii GhMlIc INMMM, IK. MlriirifHlilpilV.iH. Whatever «lie Jewish parenU pais down to tiwir children — love o( learning, a tense of family, and a striving lor excellence, lor example — Ibey may aJw pui to tiwni • tragic inheritance related directly to the historic practice of Jews marrying Jews. This Is a disease, specifically six genetic diseases, that are primarily, but not exclusively, afflictions o( their people. These maladies bear strange names with no ring of the dramaUc. One Is faAUial dysaulonomia, a disorder of the nervous system. Another is torsion dystonia, a muscle salxure disease. The others are named for the physicians who first reoognlMd them as separate entities and described their symptoms: Gaucher's disease. Bloom's disease, Nlemann-Plck disease, and probably the best-luiowaofall ttie "Jewish diseases," TaySMIM.

It to with these six diseases that the newly formed National Foundation for Jewish Genetic Diseases Inc. will concern itself in a wide range of national projects — educational, fund-raising, and community chapter formation

among them. The uoUylog effort, we hope, will help fUMt raaeardi and gHMtlc eoMiMUng, whieii would Ideally lead to pre^euUwi and cure. But the flrrt aim Is to gtt lo the Jewlih pobtte and Infann tiMm dMMt wttttout wandag. The victims of these genetic mistakes of nature may be relatively few in number. But as one researcher has pointed out tersely, "The Incidence is 100 per cent and the catastrophe total" for the child and the family struck by one of these cruel, disfiguring or crippling and often lifeshortening disorders. The victims are primarily Ashkenaii Jews, descendants of those from Eastern and Central Europe. Some of the diseases are relatively "new." Bloom's syndrome, which stunts its victims' growth, was first recognized In 1954 by a New York City skin specialist. Dr. David Bloom. On the other hand, Tay-Sachi disease, which often kills before the age of 4, dates back to the ISaOs, When its symptoms were first recorded by an English ophthalmologist and an American neurologist. Only Within the last 30 years or so have medical researchers begun to focus sharply on these Inherited diseases with eneoursKlng results. No

cures have been found. But progress has been made in prevention, by seeking out carriers of severe genetic defects, counselling the "atrisk" cotqiles, and offering a choice of continuing or ending the mother's pregnancy before it is too far advanced — when fetal tesU Indicate the unborn baby Is afflicted. Young vlctlina o< Bloanii'i •yndmoie have a ttrlldn^ stanllar, binl-Uke miearaMes. llMir faces are antaU and narrow, tbelr heads itasited. llMlr powth Is stunted and Ihey are Mostthfc to tba SUB, wMdi mains wane the uoalifrtly bMcbas that mar the facie. The Intelligence of the victims is not affected. But their sice and appearance, and the way others react to these physical characteristics, often lead to deep psychological scars. An added problem is that the patients are potential genetic breeding grminds for cancer. ' Torsion dystonia is a particularly cruel affliction, This netirological disorder to a distorting, disabling ailment marked by convutoions, involuntary movements of the arms, legs, neck and torso. The form of the disease that strikes primarily in Ashkenazl Jews falls In an inheritance pattern known as autosomal recessive. It becomes evident

between the ages of 4 and 16, and often progresses rapidly. Surgery can only ease some of the symptoma. Victims of familial dysautononla, the nMrvoua system disorder, can nettber feel pain nor ciy real tears. InJuilM may go too long unattndsd ""^ eye ptublems are mads wane bfiht lack of tears. They are ai4>Jact to attacks of pneumonia and vomlttlng. The disorder, also known as the Rlley-Days syndrome, causes malfunctioning of the autonomic, or Involuntary part, of the nervous system — that part which controls automatic and reflex actions. Doctors cannot yet diagnose the disease before birth nor Identify carriers. But they now can detect carriers of tvra other genetic diseases, and prenatal screening can also identify fetuses affected by them. These are Gaucher's disease and Memann-Pick disease, each of them brought on by the lack of one specific enzyme which prevents breakdwon of fatty substances. Althon^ there are three other farms of NiemanB-Pkk, the type that sbikes chUdrw of AAtaMsl Jews has Ms own •at of symptoms. TIM ^pISM and liver became graally •nlargsd, poriilng out lbs sbdomwi.

In iU long-term adult form, it isn't deadly, but It to a killer In lU infantUe form, which Is 10 per cent of the total. The most wide-ranging experience and some proven successes have come in TaySachs. Research achievements with the last six years have led directly to mass screening programs for prenatal detection of that disease. This metabolic disorder strikes about sfai months afler Urth, tranniormtaig bri|M hesltby' babies into unrmpanshre 4MUS unable ID crawl, turn over, smile, ot grasp a DMlber's (tager. By U months of age, they an uiuaUy blind and paralyied. Inevltja)ly, death comes by the age of 3 to 4. The cause of Tay-Sachs has been traced to the lack of an essential enzyme called hexosaminidase (Hex A for short) which breaksdown

fatty materials in the nervous system. Carriers of the gene for the disease can also be detected. The fact that three of these six genetic disorders now can be detected by prenatal screening, and carriers identified by laboratory tests, is reason, for great encouragement.

But more work remahM. What can be done? Support of such programs as the informational and fund-raising efforts of the National Foundation for Jewish Genetic Diseases Inc. and forming chapters In regional areas are a start. The foundation can supply literature and has a speaker's bureau available to present programs on the diseases and their effects. The foundation and Its executive director is at 608, Fifth Ave., New Y^jck, N.Y. 10020. ' Make it" a Habit Deaths from uterine cancer could be further reduced if every adult woman had a Fap test with her annual checkup and if postmenopausal women were checked by their doctors for any abnormal bleeding, says the American Cancer Sodety.

Oneg Shabbat Renewed > DES MOINES - An old ' tradition in a new garb lias come to American Jewry from Israel. The Oneg Shat>bat (Sabbath Joy), a revival of Seudati Shellshlt, was founded under the influence and guidance of the poet laureate of Israel — Hayyim Nahman Bialik. A large building known as Ohel Shetn wa| erected In Tel Aviv by an American philanthropist to house Uie - Oneg Shabbat. About two bours t>efore the setting of the aun on the Sabbath, many : ataembled at Ohel Shem to rejoice in the holiness of the : day and to bid it farewell. SchoUra and rabbis, yonng and old, gatberad togatber wltb a coamxHi purpoaa. An atiwwphw of ganctlflad Joy pfwallad. UntU hit death, Bialik was the moving spirit of the Oneg Shabbat. He would greet the assembled guests and discuss events of current interest to the Jewish people. Other acholan and religious leaders were invited to deliver diaoouraea on religious and ethical themes Open diacuaslons took place. RefreshineoU, aynUxdlc of the meal were served. Traditional Sabbath hymns as well as the modem songs of

Palestine were sung. After darkness descended, the Havdalah service was chanted. The Oneg Shabbat hAs become one of the most popular institutions In Israel and has gradually spread to many other countries. In the United State* the idea of the Oneg Shabbat has taken root in hundreds of synagogues, Jewish community centers and other Institutions. Such programs. If properly conceived and well executed, can bring satisfaction and Joy, tiot to speak of educational benefils to the participants. The Oneg Shabbat can be integrally hound up with religious services, fhe tradition of the Oneg Shabbat sets it between the Saturday afternoon and evening services. In this instance the Influence of prayer Is naturally experienced. Wherever it is conducted as a distinct entity, prayer should be hicorporated Into the Oneg Shabbat. Selections from the Sabbath services, special prayers, or Pialma may be read by Uw leader or the entire group. When the Oneg Shabbat ends on Saturday after nlghtfaU, It can be concluded with the Havadalah ceremony.

During the early . stages of the war we were on maneuvers In the South Atlantic when storm warnings forced us to submerge. When we surfaced a couple of days later the storm was still going strong. Waves a hundred feet high tossed our sub around like a cork. "Suddenly the storm stopped. We were a hundred feet in the air and going so fast that before we could submerge we crossed the ooast of Africa. We finally came down smack in the middle (>f the Sahara Desert. "While the captain was fending messages toWashlngton explaining our predicament, several of us decided to scout around. There was a native tent in the distance. Imagine our surprise when out of it stepped Gary Cooper. He told us not to use his real name but to give him his Arab title — Beau Geste. "When we told hifh' At our disaster, h« Just stnile^ .and said he knew an easy soliii^bn. He went Into his tent and brought out two large signs lettered 'Los Angeles City Limits.' These he instructed us to put up near our sub. "Well, within five minutes after we put those signs up it started to rain. The rain fell for three weeks, and finally the desert t>ecame flooded clear to Casablanca. Saying goodbye to the city limits of Los Angeles, we gave a rousing cheer and sailed out to sea."

A major thrust of Baron's work as Rabbi Cytron views it is tbe ctmcept of Judaism and the Jewish people as an "Interdependent whole." "Judaism is more ttian a hobby, a cute ethnicity. It is a commitment to a lifestyle and a set of goals." Judaism docs not only Imply the physical survival of the Jewish people. Judaism is the survival of our faith and the way in which we shape our institutions to secure that faith. Rabbi Cytron said. With these words, the Board of Governors proceeded to ..review the final deciiions of the Budget Committee. Gary Rubin.

QUESTION: Why doas Jewlali tradWnirsqulrsa(|uanmi<(amtaqrae to b« ff sail St a wsdiMin rwimwnyT ANSWER: Oenerally speaking, UiU Indicates Uiat marriage is not •trlcUy a private affair. Not only the righU of the bride and groom are Involved In tbe marriage, the ri^ts of other memben of the community are Involved ilnoe Uw bride U henceforth forbidden to marry anyone elae. Furthermore, mm secret marriages, as such, allowed, it would be possible to engage In ahort-lerm marriages (e.g., a marriage for a day> which would resemble proetltution Instead of an affair of love and devotion. In this latter icnie, the requirement of a minyan Is only one of a number of formalities required In effecting a marriage bond, alt of which tend to point out that the ooffllag association between husband and wife will be more than a knee exprenion of animal lust. The formalities give the maiTlage deep and laatlng human meaning.

Hadassah Delegation Receives Iowa Flag DES MOINES - Governor Roi>ert 0. Ray of Iowa presented a delegation from Hadassah with the SUte of Iowa Flag which will be flown at the reopening and. dedlcatkNi ceremonies o( the rebuilt Hadassah Mount Soopua Hospital in Jerusalem onOct.U,l97S. The governor also Issued a congratulatory letter addressed to the women of tbe Missouri Valley Regkm of Hadassah, offering his best wishes to the administrators, doctors and benefators ol the Hadassah University Hospital on Mount Scopus on the reopening and dedication of this faculty He said, "Having the services of this hlU of healing' once again available to the people of East Jerusfletn Is surely a special occasion for this country, uniting people from many different backgrounds with a common cause and a response to a definite need. "The Hadassah women must feel a real sense of satisfaction knowing that because of their humanitarian efforts and determination this great medical facility has been rebuilt ... again I commend you for your courage and work and, on behalf of the people of Iowa send twst wishes for success as you begin a new era of service In this internationally known hospital." One of the nnost beautiful hospitals in the world — dormant since 1M8 — was designed by famed Bauhaus architect Erich Mendelsohn and served the people of Jerusalem from 1939-1948, when the access road was cut off In the War of Independence and the Holy City was divided by the Trans-Jordanian forces. At that time tbe medical complex Included a general hospital, the HenrletU Szold School of Nursing and the Hadassah University Hospital Post-Graduate Medical School Building. The Mt. Scopus facility was returned to Hsdassah In 1067 when the city was reunited during the Six Day War. Since then an extensive

repair, renovation and expansion of the hospital has been undertaken by Hadassah at a cost of over $25 million. The new general hospital provides 3ad beds Indudlng. the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Rehabilitation PavlUlon While the sheU and original Mendelsohn design concept 01 the hospital has been retained, the entire interior and the new buildings have been planned for new medical needs and modem practice. For esthetic and hls^c considerations on this venerated site, overlooking the Old City below and the Dead Sea Valley and the Hills of Moab In the distance, extreme care has been taken to buUd down Into the hiUslde to preserve the integrity of the famed landscape. This reopened facility Is a branch of the Medical Center at EIn Karem In the western part of Jerusalem. Hadassah serves all people and about 10 percent of its patients are Arab. When the city was reunited, Arab patients from East Jerusalem Immediately came to the Medical Center at EIn Karem with their medical clinic cards they had held (or 19 years. Hadassah, to all the inhabitants, since 1913 has meant the highest measure of medical care that could be obUlnedlnthearea. ^

QinsnON: Why Is the ededalka o< Iht maaOa In Ow J«>M eataBdar kasMI aa a haar qraism c( rsdnlag, Uaa mAli« Itas Hittsv rslsnrtar ssssaaaUy a fcaar ealsn<arT

ANSWER: The oUier alternative would be to use the solar calendar system throughout. In the latter case the months are raUier arbitrarily divided. Some commentaries indicate Uiat using the natural division of the months into the ptiaaes of the moon (e.g., wtiere a month begins with every new moon) serves as a means of encouragement and optimism to the people. In Its appearance, the moon ••renews" itaeU every month. This tends to convince us that man can always "renew" those things which he might have lost In time. Thus the land of Israel can be "renewed" to the Jewish people even though they were dispersed by exile. The dead can be "renewed" even though they kMt their lives Ui the struggle with nature. Also, the people of Israel can be "renewed" Into again being a united people in spite of having been dispersed through the four comers of the earth. Some claim that since the moon can sometimes be seen during the day as well as night. It doesn't lose its appearaiKe even Ui the dark night. This symbolties Uie Immortality of man who Is to be witneaaed both in Uila world and In the next world.

your new home should have an electric heat pump An 0l«ctric fwat pump. A heating system that, on cold days, will extract heat from the outside and circulate it inside your home. On hot days, it simply reverses Itself, extracting heat inside your home, pumping it outside. Basically it works on the same principle as an air conditioner. It has three important advantages: 1. EFFICIENCY: If you're concerned about low operating costs, an electric heat pump is your answer. Our experience has shown that an electric heat pump will deli vera seasonal average of 1% units of heat energy for every unit of electricity used That's 150% efficiency. That's an electric heat pump. 2. YEAR AROUND COMFORT: Ideally you'd like your home cool In the summer, warm in the winter. You'd like to t>e comfortable every season, all year long. A heat pump will do just that. Set the thermostat at the temperature you desire — and forget it. And if humidity is a contributor to your discomfort on liot. muggy days, you'll find an electric heat pump removes gallons of water from the air in your home when it's coolir>g. That's comfort. That's an electric heat pump. 3. CONSERVATION OF ENEROY: In today's energy situation, the electric heat pump is ideal. The only energy it uses besides warmth from the sun is electricity. When you substitute electricity for oil or gas to heat your home, you're saving these scarce fuels tor transportation and industrial applications where there are no substitutes.OPPD mainly uses coal and nuclear fuel to generate electricity. That's conservation of ef>ergy. That's an electric heat pump. So if you're contemplating or have already made plans to build a new hotne in the rtear future, we invite you to look into all of the advantages of an electric heat pump. Contact your electric heating/air conditioning contractor or call or visit your OPPD office.

I've shared many wonderful experiences with most of Combelt Region B'nai B'rith Youth Organization's 300 memtiers during my V/t years as volunteer director. But if I didn't say that our 1975 Leadership Elections Conclave (LEG '75)-held last weekend at Camp Esther K. Newman and attended by 61 BBYOers and staff—was the best convention the past three years, I'd t>e doing an injustice to many members of the BBYO "extended famUy". Marsha Pk>tkin and I lent professional direction and support, but in every respect, LEC '75 was a youth-run program. Oiordinators Shelly Alloy and Debbie Diamond and their steering committee carried off a high-quality program that allowed everyone to delve deeply bito BBYO's basic tenets and also to better understand their roles as officers and leaders.

By Hden Newman "What's there to do in Grand Island?" Thirty-eight members of the Older Adult Club found plenty to do and see in that Nebraska town, when they made the tri)> by bus on Monday, June 2. Mollle Delman. as usual, did everything possible to make the trip an enjoyable one. Ttie driver, Roy Hampton, who was remembered from a previous trip, certainly added to the pleasure and comfort, pointing out places of interest along the way and occasionally telling a joke. Mln Cutler, club president, had made brownies and a delicious cake which she served on the bus, along with coffee and lemonade. Mrs. Isador (Fay) Kahn, who lives In Grand Island, and Mrs. LoU Stlenlke, director of nutrition and recreation programs of the Senior Citixen Industries of Grand Island, were the group's hostesses. HM gmv lint vlaltad the Seniar CHlnos' Arts and CraAs Store where there was a large Tartety of items on display made by people tai that ana. SsMral In tba pwvs IKIUlpil BOVWJT gBiS III the

They even had a door prize and went all out to entertain the group in a big way Upon leaving here, a reporter from the Grand Island Indpendent Newspaper took pictures of the group which made them feel very welcome as guests in the town. Van Farrand also had her camera and snapped pictures at various times. The highlight of the trip was the visit to the Stuhr Museum. The building is surrounded by a beautiful man-made lake, with live ducks and swans floating on the water. A film was Aown, nanaled by Henry Fonda and entltM "Land of the Pralrla Plonaer".

Philanthropies Chief Thanks Veteran UJA 'er for Assistance OMAHA - A veteran United Jewish Appeal campaign worker has been publicly thanked for his help in the 1975 Omaha Jewish Philanthropies Campaign by General Chairman Ell M.Zalkln. The campaigner Is Harry Shapiro, who has been with UJA since Its inception and who served as director of Ihe American Zionist Emergency Council which helped build a favorable opinion in the United States for the establishment of Israel. New Yorker Shapiro, who will be 75 in July, served the UJA as a regional supervisor all over the U.S. He returned to New York from Omaha last month after a 3 'fi-martb stay. "We avpredato Ms bsl^ fulness and stoicertty towards our eanpaiffi and lbs cause of tbe J«»Wi people la poHBl," sairtZalkln. Shapiro, who retired from the UJA in 1966, is called upon by the UJA and other organlzathms from time to time. "I really ought to retire," he said. "1 don't know how long I'll live, but if I work, I'll work for the Jews." Shapiro praised Omalia's Jewish community. "This community Is a very good one — the best one I know. But It's behind tbe eight-ball because it's raised so much money In the past three years," he said. Both he and Zaikin urge Omahans to come forward

Harry Shapira and make meaningful contributions to this year's Philanthropies drive tiecause Israel's and world Jewry's needs are greater than ever. The Omaha campaign goal Is $3,450,00. Shapiro's "opinionmolding" In the IBMe saw his group trying "to educate Congress - and we did It before anyone was aware we were doing it." "We had a very pad press in America on Palestine," recalled Shapiro. "Newspaper correspondents were taking British news handouts, making a couple of changes and sending them through"' Shapiro enlisted the aid of a young correspondent to sit with the various correspondents and "give them Ihe facts. That way we created a moreevenharaied press," said Harry.
