Karl Baehr, minister, civic leader, lecturtir and member of the United Nations' Speakers Re¬ search Committee, wjll deliver the main address for the leader¬ ship meeting of Ohio Valley Re¬ gion of the Zionist Organization of America Sunday at the Ft. Hayes Hotel in Columbus. The day's progrEim starts at 10 a. m. with an executive session entitled "State of the Region." Luncheon will be served at 12:30 p. m.. followed by Rev. Baehr's address. At 2:30, "Zionism on the Camp¬ us" will bo discussed by Rabbi Harry Kaplan, director of Hlllel Foundation at Ohio State Univer¬ sity. Louis Ptfior of South Bend, Ind., Is president of the Ohio Valley Region. Among the committee chairmen for Sunday's conven¬ tion Is Jacob H. GilSert of Co¬ lumbus, covering World Zionist Affairs. Only the luncheon meeting ses¬ sion will be open to the public, pther events on the day's agenda arc for members of the Zionist District. During the past six years, Rev. Baehr has led four stuc|y tour parties through the Near East, visiting Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Cyprus. Special attention was given on eaoh of thoae tours to tho com¬ plex social, economic poUtlcoJ and religious problems of the area. United States and United Nations officials aa well as local civic, political and religioua lead¬ ers met with each group to give them authoritative information. Arab refugees, the Communist danger, the burgeoning desert, are all themes studied at close range. Viewing the so-called "Jewlah pi'Oblem" through the eyes of a Christian minister, he looks upon it as a world problem and there¬ fore, in the final analysis, as a Christian problem. In his keen analysis, the new State of Israel represents a vic¬ tory for the democratic forces In the world and demonstrates In a remarkable way the great devel¬ opment potentials of underdevel¬ oped lands and backward peoples. Rev. Baehr's brilliant lectures on the Near East and Israel never fail to Inspire his aud¬ iences. He haa a complete mas¬ tery of facts, acquired from care¬ ful study and personal observa¬ tion.

Physicians Doing Their Share in United Jewish Fund's 1957 Effort The opening 1957 campaign meeting of the Physicians Section of the United Jewish Fund was held March 28, at the Excelsior Club. Thirty-one physicians heard a stirring message presented by Dr. Myron A. Welti, a prominent Cleveland physician very active in Jewish communal affairs. The group was also addressed by Herbert H. Schiff, chairman of the Special Gifts Division and Troy Feibel, past-president of the United Jewish Fund. The Physicians Section is co- chalred by Mrs. Paul D. Meyer and William D. Paul. Other mem¬ bers of the committee are: Drs. Aaron Canowitz, Maurice Zox, Morris Krakoff, Harry Topolosky, Robert Friedman, S. D. EWelman, Beryl Oser, Milton Levltln, Jay Jacoby, Herbert Pariser, B. W. Abramson. All speakers stressed the ser¬ ious situation of the Jews who arc now In flight, most of whom are seeking entrance to Israel. Israel, with Its limited economic resources. Is tightening its own needs to help tho newly arrived immigrants. A startling example of what goes on In Israel: The average worker In Israel does not make enough to put aside money for a vacation. But many big employ¬ ers. Including the Government, provide holiday allowances; I.e., they will pay a portion of the bill, for a limited stay, at medium price rest centers. This year the threat of unem¬ ployment of many of the recent arrivals hangs over the country, and so the Executive Board of the Trade Union Federation voted to turn over the workers' holiday allowances this year for unem¬ ployment relief. That means that tens of thousands of employed personnel will spend their vaca¬ tions at home. The situation is so critical be¬ cause, instead of the expected 55,000 immigrants, Israel is going STATE MEETINO OF JWV DEPARTMENT TOMORROW The Department of Ohio Jewish War Veterans and Auxiliary will conduct a council of administra¬ tion meeting Sunday, 11 a. m., at the new Veterans Memorial building. 300 W. Broad St. All members of Capltol Post 122 and Auxiliary are urged tq at¬ tend. to receive 100,000 during the cur¬ rent year. A great part of the cost of this Immigration will be borne by the Jewish agency, whose funds come mainly from the United Jewish Appeal In A- mcrlca, and of course, the people of Israel and their government also share the burden. The men who know say that among 100,000 Immigrants there will bo 25,000 children of the 5- through-14 age group, the com¬ pulsory education age group. To provide for them and for vo¬ cational training of a limited ntimber of teen-agers, the State will have to build 836 classrooms at a huge cost. The State will have to train and pay 836 teach¬ ers, it will have to provide books and school equipment, workshops for manual training, kitchens for hot school lunches, pay for light¬ ing arid heat and maintenance of the schools. And yet the State cannot expect any appreciable tax income from the parents of these 25,000 children for years to come. How can the State possibly met this problem?

For example: "Sectarian religious practices In our public schools, especially programs of 'released time' which violate our traditional concept of separation of church and state and disturb our community re¬ lationships are atlll - of serious concern throughout Ohio. "The widespread public dis¬ cussions on the Middle Bast and continuing tensions In that area are Increa^n^ly being- used by Arab propagandists and bthers to discredit American Jewry In an attempt to destroy Ii^rael. "In a positive vein, the need was never greater to develop and expand the educational programs of the League in working with schools and community organiza¬ tions to foster dennocratlc attir tudes and practices. "No one cou^ be more quali¬ fied to give us an overall view of the progress made and the prob¬ lems faced by the Jewish com¬ munity In this area than Seymour Gorchoff and his staff who han¬ dle the day-to-day activities of the ADL. "We are pleased that Richard Abel and Isadore Topper have ac¬ cepted our invitation to intro¬ duce the program and moderate the discussion to follow, and that we will be able to hear first¬ hand reports from the local ADL staff, i urge every member of the Jewisli community to take advantage of thla opportunity by participating in this atimulating and provocative meeting."
