Aiciiatologicai i^ I"''';' N. High St. at 15th—1 Tomorrow is the Big S. 0. S. City-wide Pick-up Day! Tomorrow's big S. 0. S, day offers the Jewish community of Columbus its big chance to per¬ form a Imltzvah" for starving Displaced Persons in disease- infested camps overseas. Yes, tomorrow, Si^nday, Nov. 14, be¬ tween 9 a. m. and 1 p. m. S. 0. S. trucljs, manned by volunteers, will call at homes to pick up essential canned food contributions. In these closing hours of the drive, Mr. Samuel Shlnbach, chairman for this gigantic one- day S. 0. S. canvass, made an Im¬ portant plea: "Our brothersi sisters, and children overseas need all the nutrition we can .send. That need is IMMEDIATE. Tomorrow, give with mercy. Give with air the generosity In your heart. One can of essqntlal food— I'ust one—Is as welcome as one ca.se or many oases. Each can is a stepping stone toward these unfortunate people's dream of life in Israel. However, let me repeat: Our goal Is vital foods, in tins—FRUITS, MEAT, I'-ISH, MILK, F-ATS, OILS, JUICES, COCOA. Do not give :,iiups, cereals, or vegolaliles, as these occupy valuable shipping snaf^p which must be clovoted to the highly nutritious necessities." Mr. Richard Abel, co-chairman of the S. O. S. drive, stressed the importance, of pick-up speed to¬ morrow morning/ In an Inter¬ view yesterday he said "It is Im¬ portant that, all Jewish families In ^Columbus have their food sacks ready by 0 o'clock Sunday morning. Since our voiur.'teers must make .so mariy calls, each delay will mean valuable time wasted. Many families plan to fill their S. O. S. sacks Saturday night just to be sure they are ready for early pick-up Sunday. That's an • xcellent idea. If families do not Intend to be home Sunday, they should either leave the sacks outside their doors, where they can be seen by our volunteers; or leave a message in the door with In¬ structions as to where the sacks can be picked up."
