Chairman Richard Abel Thanks Workers, Contributors for Success of 1951 Drive • « ,« ' • * • " Urge Remittance of Unpaid Pledges The Columbus .Jewish Community responded magni- -ficently to the 19.50 United .Jewish Fund drive by contribut¬ ing $512, 029, as against $56.3,700 last year, Richard Abel, 1950 Campaign Chairman, reported today. These funds, which are vital for continued help to des¬ titute thousands overseas and for services in our own com¬ munity, represent a contribution by almost every man. Woman, and child in Columbus. Over 500 workers volun¬ teered their services for the drive this year. "Although this year's figure is a decrease of QV,, over last year's contributions, this does not represent a decrease in individual gifts", Mr^ Abel said. "Actually, many gifts were increa.sed," "Primary reasons for the drop in total contributions are the loss of many generous donors through death, and a .shift in the Jewish population toward other large cities. "The appeals of millions of destitute Jews will be ful¬ filled both overseas and at home through this money," Mr. Abel added. tn a Irltuite to the work by JMRONICLE 2Jl A// Serving Columbus and Central Ohio Jewish Communily Vol. 2«, No. 28 rOIAMBVH, OHIO, FRIDAY, .IlLV 14, 1950 D^TOted to AmertcBn And JetvUh IdrftJ* hundreds of volunteers In the drive and to the community for Its showing.

The song under dispute is "T-^ena." a Hebrew word mean¬ ing, "walk out." It was compos¬ ed In Tel Aviv by a I. MIchrov- sky-Miron during the A'rah-I.s- faei war and became popular not only among the .soIdior.S'—he- cause it Invites the girls lo come oul into the streets to see the Israel soldiers marching — but also in collective settlemenls, in cafes and even among school children. It did nol take long for the song to reach the Unlled States, where Cromwell Music, Inc., had the text translated Into English and published it. "Tzena" .soon became a "hit" sojig on records and on the radio'and in night clubs. However, a New York composer, Yudl Grossman, after hearing the song, wrote to the Tel Aviv composer asking his permission for improving on the music. He also asked Cromwell Music lo recognize Michrovsky- Mlron's rights to royalties. When Cromwell rejected this request, Grossman In his and MIchrovsky-Mlron's behalf auth- orljsed tKe Mills Music Publish¬ ing Company to publish the song. Cromwell then sued Mills on the grounds that the song was copyrighted by Cromwell. Grossman Instituted a suit against Cromwell for appropriat¬ ing "Tzena." Each side is seek¬ ing $50,000 damages.

UliACES ORDBR IN AUSTRIA POR STEEL VIENNA, (JTA)—The Israel branch of the Kalser-Frazer au¬ tomobile company of Haifa has placed an order"wlth the United Austrian Iron and Steel Works for a supply of structural steel lo be used for an assembly plant of the company. The Austrian firm had to guarantee early de¬ livery because Kalser-Frazer In¬ tends to Iwgln automobile liro- duetlon this fall. ladders and lifeguard towers would have to lie installed and that the complete area should be finished in order to prevent unauthorized persons from using the pool. 11 was also the opinion of the committee that It would be advisable for an addi¬ tional wailing period, before pulling water Into the pool, to, give the concrete an opportunity lo set. :t. lAK'kci-s. Unless a special dressing facility Is built outside, which is not yet included in the planning, it will be necessary to use the regular locker rooms of Ihe building for the outdoor swimming pool. This would mean that operating personnel would be required to keep the main building open during the equipping and furnishing period. After the pool is open, it would mean that practically the entire main building would have to be completed. 4. IiO<'kpr FiicUltlcB.

It was the opinion of the commiltee that there would he no rill revenue from operations of the pool this sum¬ mer. It was the feeling of th? committee that in order to oper- iie the pool, we would need ad¬ ministration personnel, locker personnel and maintenance per¬ sonnel that would only be work¬ ing for the pool, while when the entire center Is open, these peo¬ ple would be devoting only a small part of their time toward pool work, and that with these necessary salaries, the expense of operating the pool this sum¬ mer would exceed the revenue. In addition to all of these rea¬ sons, the committee felt that opening any part ot the center, piece-meal, would take away from the over-all dedication and the enthusiasm resulting from I this.
