Igor: "What waa the purpose of Shavuot?" Don't you know?" he answored, "Everyone, knows. It is to eat blintzes."' "I know," I said, "it ifl customary to eat blintzes and other dairy products symbolizing mrik and honey on Shavuot. but,"' I added, "I always thought Shavuot had something to do with Revelation." "Don't you think It was a Revciation when tho first Blintz was dis¬ covered or invented?" replied Igor. "I'll bet you the Daily News got out an extra about it. -Ed Murrow did a television interview with the inventor, and college professors wrote books about it." Par be it from me to detract from their slgnificnnce. "Let them «it blintzes." I say, aa Marie Antoniette said "lot thi-m eat cake." But let us not put thc cart before thc horse of the blintz. You might say that Shuvnot started out with blintzes, but It grew—it developed into something else. Shavuot originally waa an agricultural festival, but begin¬ nings are not really Important. It la what they become that io im¬ portant. Jewish genius magically transformed it. This transforma¬ tion was of course facilitated by tho fact that the Jew coOsod to be an agricultural people. Shavuot was linked with what Is the most significant episode of Jewish hia¬ tory mayho of all the world's hia¬ tory the giving of thv Torah arid the Ton Commandments on Mt. Sinai. The art of life consists in this transformation whoch takes prose and turn.s It into poetry,, which turns valleys into hills. From the lack of this touch of the imagina¬ tion, all evil springs. What do you think is basic in nil this juvenile delinquency that wo read about? It i.s not that these young people ' have not had their Imagination I touched about their possibilities I for good ?

Tribute will be paid to all those who served .the congregation In its first 50 years. Only 16 men bave boon elected to the office of presi¬ dent in that period. George Goodman, who served the congregation In 1915. is the dean of those to be honored, but the list of these men and their Importance in the local Jewish community reads like a "Who's .Who" in Co¬ lumbua. Tho importance of each man to the community, and to his era in the growth of Columbus Jewry. Following George Goodman to the top honors In the synagogue, was Abe Goodman, who served as president in 1917, 1919. 1936 and 1937.

Mr. Levy stated: "We can't help but be grateful for the response of those who have already given to our campaign for 42 local, national and ' overseas agencies. However, we are deeply concerned with tht* fact that not all those who wish to give to the ,campalgn have been seen. We know that many have been out of town or not available when our volunteers, attempted to contact them. This is the crucial period In our campaign. The line must b*? held on Increases If we RABBI FRIEDMAN, NEW UJA HEAD Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman, dillinguUhed aptrilual leader and orator, wilt be inducted MB Executive Vice-Cha'rman ol the United Jewiah Appeal at the UJA NaUonal Caih Mobilitation to be held Sal. urday evening and Sunday, June 4 and S at the Sheraton Park Hotel in Waihington, D.C.

I am hoping that every worker who has prospects to see will do so within the next few days. Although the results of the campaign so far arc good, the success of our ef¬ fort will depend mainly on the work put in by these volunteers from her© on out. We are 'hoping that every prospect not yet soli¬ cited will, when called upon, find It possible to Increase his gift at least the suggested 16%. The in¬ tense work our solicitors will put In will determine whether we will attain success. It is not enough that our prospects give as much as Ihey gave last year - it is necessary that they be told of the many health and welfare services sup¬ ported so that every contribution will be an Increased gift." Troy Feibel, president of the Fund, stated: 'This Is the hardest part of the campaign. No matter how hard we try to speed up our campaign effort, we always find the most difficult job to be done is that which, follows the holding of our major campaign affairs. There is a natural tendency on the part of many solicitors to postpone the final clean.up phase. There are not many cards outstanding this year but every single gift Is required if we are to enable our agtmoiea to continue the programs which we have supported in tho past I hope .that everyotie who has as¬ sumed the job of bringing the mes¬ sage of the campaign to cur pros¬ pective contributors will do so Im¬ mediately so that IdSS can b« an¬ other successful year in the long history of generosity by Columbus Je>vry."
