There Is no question but that everybody In this room and the hundreds who are not here tonight, all deserve the gratitude of the Jewish com¬ munity. For, we Icnow that the success of the campaign depends on the teamwork of every individual, and yet it is manifestly Impossible to present a token of appreciation to everybody. . "Inevitably the leader of a cam palgn stands aa one of its symbols, and In honoring him we honor all its leaders. We have had great leaders in our campaigns in the past, the late Ed Schanfarber, Rob¬ ert Schiff, L W. Garek, Harry ' Roth, Loo Yassenoff, Richard J. Abel, Samuel M. Melton, Troy Feibel." "Sam Shinbach continues in that tradition. Sam has demonstrated the same sincerity of purpose, de¬ votion, and Inspiration. I know how hard he haa worked to make the campaign a success and how much of himself he has put Into it. He built up on efficient organization with tho assistance of all the peo-" pic ho has mentioned Tailspln Was Checked *'It took some courage to accept the chairmanship in this year when few were optlmlatlc about businesa conditions. It looked to some as if we were going to take a tailspln downward despite that fact that ' needs continue aa great as before. Sam waa willing to aerve, knowing what the score was. He has justi¬ fied the talth of our Board and campaign leaders. "We know that he had some hard problems to solve. There were tl^es when he must have had anxiety and a real sense of trouble. But the obstacles were overcome, and we hope he has had some pleasure too. The pleasure should be abiding and continuous. We feel grateful to Sam for his leader¬ ship, and, therefore, in behalf of all of ua, I am presenting to Sam this token in ^e hope that It will help to inake his memories of the campaign a source of perpetual Joy."
