AiLliaeiilugifal I'illi.-'iunuiil .Vlua- N. Illqh St at 1,'ith—1 AN EDITORIAL Woman on a Mission Mrs. Golda Meyerson, Israeli Minister of Labor and Recon- striictlon, Is not a stranger In America. Iri fact, a slightest twl^t in fSte and she might have been one of the spearhea^ of the' liberal movement In America. Now in. this country at the Invitation Of th^ United Jewish Appeal, It Is Mrs. Meyerson's intention during Her speaking tour to give American Jewry a frank picture of the housing situation in Israel, resulting from the huge wave of immigration^ For It is tragically apparent that unless there is sufficient money to house and shelter all who jiave come to Israeli's shores, the policy of unrestricted immigration may have to be modified to the detri¬ ment and htirt of the tens upon tens of thousands of Jews who .are hoping to Identify themselves with Jewish striving In Israel. As of this m<iment there is need In Israel of at least 160,000 housing units apart from the shelter.s that must be provided for the lens of thousands whose arrival Is aiillclpated In greater pumbers dur¬ ing the summer months. , The Israeli government will not suspend Immigration under any circumstances, Mrs. Meyerson declared at her arrival. But It becomes Increasingly apparent that If that program Is lo be carried out American Jewry must lend a strong hand. Here in'Columbus we find the hard-driving United Jewish Fund campaign chairman, Leo Yasenoff, moving steadily towards the 1940 goal. "To date we're tremendously encouraged, since a great number of subscriptions coming In daily reveal Increases over last year's contrlbuilons," .staled Yassenoff. Cooperation of every person who has volunteered lo work for the united Jewish Fund was urged this week to push ihe cam¬ paign to a speedy, successful conclusion. • The measure of generosity with which each c .; responds lo the solicitor who calls, said Mr. Ya.ssenoff, will be Inc direct measure by which we can quickly succeed In clb.slng DP camps forever, and In -putting an end lo the hgmele.ssness of our desperate brothers In Europe and In Olher lands. We may add that the measure of ybur generosity will also be the measure of your Jewishness and your Americanism- U^^.]/ Serving Columbus and Central C^lo Jewish CommuoMy \Vy\'[^ Vol. 27, No. 23 COLUMBUS, OHlo, PRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1049 Devot**! to American and Jewlih Ideala Junior Division of UJF Launches ^49 Drive The Junior Division of the United Jewish Fund of Colum¬ bus will launch Its 1949 drive tvlth a meeting of the workers, at the Excelsior Club Tuesday, 7:30 pm.
