"Many of those who have given," said Mr. !--<'vy, "have given more than ever before, but there are still many to be heard from. We cannot stress enough the fact that the .success of' our campaign depends upon the response received now from those* who are still being con¬ tacted. Many of these people were out of town or imavailable when our volunteers called at their homes. We nre hoping that they will respond generously when called upon." Troy Feibel stated: "Major institutions and progrnm.s of communal service 42 In all depend on the generous response of the people of Columbus to the 1955 campaign for their support. Bring help to those in need, wherever they may be, strengthening Jewish life, supporting Hpeclallzed programs of medical research and treatment; and bringing new strength and sustenance to Israel In her struggle towards econom¬ ic self-sufficiency; these are the goals to bo att^iincd through the sup- \ port nf our annual united community campaign. .1 "As this message reaches you, the majority of the contributors will have made pledges. Whether our goal wiil be peached will be deter¬ mined by the response of those who have not yet been solicited If you have not yet been reached by your solicitor, please kiH^-p these things In mind. "Those who have rJready given have made an increased investment in these humanitarian programs which thc United Jewish Fund cam¬ paign supports. They have done so because they recognize the des¬ perate need for more funds and becavise they want to Insure the suc¬ cess of a united campaign In meeting our communal obligations. To those of you who have not yet given, the success of the campaign is W your bonds-yours Is now the decision. Only your increased gift can now assure that our 1955 campaign so well begun can be drawn to a successful conclusion." VICE^PUESIDENT OF KABBINIOAJL ALUMNI Rabbi Samuel W.

The presentation of the 72-foot flagpole set in a seven-foot high granite base was made by Gov. Averill Harriman. A bronze plaque on the base reads: "Erected by the State of New York to honor the memory of the 23 men, women and children who landed In September 1654, and founded the first Jewish- community in North America." The legislative committee, appointed by Gov. Thomas E. Dewy last year, Is headed by Judge Joseph M. Proskauer. Present at the ceremony were civic leaders and representatives of the three major faiths. Addressing the dedication ceremony, Gov. Harrlman declared: "The 23 whose arrival we commemorate were Jews fleeing persecution, caught up In the most persistent, most cruel injustice to western civil¬ ization. There was no HIAS here to welcome them, and Peter Stuy. veaant ordered them to jail. Bul his superiors in Holland overruled him and gave'asylum to the refugees. They set to work, put down roots, and prospered. "When a century later our republic w&a taking form the Jewish community was one of the oldest In America, contributing as always with the Jews, Its share of the blood and treasure that won our Inde¬ pendence. Today their successors comprise nearly a third of New York City's 8.000,000 people. Our city has been im.measurably enriched by their contribution to every aspect ot our lite."
