J. Qordon, honorary preaident of the Jewish Center, presenting a plaque for distinguished Bcrvice to Edward F. Schlezinger, —~—¦ ¦ ] president in 19B1 and '52. In making the award, Dr. Gordon recounted the devoted service of Mr. Schlezinger as a member of the Building Committee responsi¬ ble for constructing the Center and as president during its initial two yeara. It was in this period that Center membership rose from 1000 persons to the more than 3300 now served. OTHER PLANS revealed during the course of the Board meeting on May 21, gave ample testimony to the continued growth of the Center. New facilities to be available to Center membership this aummer Include a new wading pool, a hard surfac<f play area for dancing and physical education activities west of the swimming pool, several pic¬ nic areas, and two baseball dia¬ monds. Highlight of the Building Com¬ mittee report, was the announce¬ ment that plans had been approved for the installation of a night- lighted baseball field ready for use this summer. Funds for these projects have been made available from the Si¬ mon Lazarua Athletic Fund as well as pledges still outstanding from the original Building Fund. With 1953 pledges continuing to ahow Increases over 1953, cam¬ paign leaders are optimistic about tho outcome. Dave Levlson, Ira Monroe and Herbert Schlff, co-chairmon of the General Solicitation Division of the UJF Campaign, urged all vol¬ unteers to concentrate on the big job that is left, "Tho decisive job that determines whether or not our campaign succeeds, the job of cov¬ ering every single person who has not yet made a contribution to the current campaign." Fred Yenkin, campaign chair¬ man, joined thom In stressing the fact that "people are a- ware pf the ntH-'ds and are respond¬ ing generously whenever they are approached. This generosity la clearly reflected in the pledges that come in daily and in our, totals to date, but we muat keep on giving. "Already we have achieved 90% of What we raised last year. If every prospect is covered, we will approach our goal. We still urge every prospect to Increase at least 25%. We hope some can double and triple their last year's gifts. We cannot afford to delay on this point because you cannot count on a contribution from a prospect you do not visit." We know of no formula, no de¬ vice that can take the place of the Individual worker seeing his own prospects personally. There Is just no substitute for that warm, hu¬ man contact between understand¬ ing people. This mlay be the ma¬ chine age, but the telephone still cannot replace the personal visit that brings the worker face to face with the prospect. People, we know, will give when they under¬ stand the servicea rendered by the agencies wc support." "About 100 more Special Gifts contributors are to be aolicitod," reported the Special Gifts chair¬ man. Jack Resier. "Some of these prospects may already have been seen, but our volunteers need to finish the job and turn the cards in to the office. We know people ¦f^re roaponding to fhe vital needs that have boen streased so often during this campaign." The Women's Division leaders were busy finishing up this week.
