No Jewish women within our memory has been held.In such high esteem by her own people, or commanded the attention of the worid as Mrs. Maler has done in the United Nations as well as on radio and television. She has given us a pattern of moral courage which we can emulate by dedicating ourselves to the tremendous task In this year's cam¬ paign. We arc keenly aware of the desperate situation In which the Jews ot the Satellite countries and North Africa find them¬ selves. Our sympathies are deeply aroused and we are determined to continue our support of Israel as a haven for the persecuted of our people. As concerned as we are about the overseas relief and rehabili¬ tation, we know too of the nee(^s in local national institutions. A- i]}Ong these are Brandeis Univer¬ sity, Hlllel, our own Jewish Fami¬ ly .Service and the Home for the Aged, as well as many other vital agencies. All of those are financ¬ ed by our contributions to the United Jewish ITund. We cftn reflect with pride that in 1B86 the Jewish women of Co¬ lumbus raised ll.&% of the total collections, and that 18% of the United Jewish Appeal contrtbU' tions was made by. women. I tcnow that with our pity, our in¬ terest and understanding, we, the Jewish woinen of Columbus will not fail to do our share. We will meet our quota In gifts to the MBS. LAZARUS regular United Jewish Fund and to the Emergency Rescue Fund, for we are imbued with tbe Im¬ portance and urgency of this crucial fund rjedslng effort.

It is expected that Mr. Kolitz will present an insider's view of the Near East crisis, according to Mr. Madison. Extending an In¬ vitation to members of his di¬ vision, he .laid: "Many people feel that we are now seeing In Egypt a re-enact-* ment of the horror of the Nazi era. American press reports and eye-witness accounts have reveal¬ ed that many Jews arc being held in various concentration centers or camps as hostages for their families. "Businesses are being confi¬ scated and property Is being seized. Because of the tense situation, much of this informa¬ tion is necessarily closely cen¬ sored. We welcome an opportuni¬ ty to meet someone who . can honestly discuss conditions with us." on the current drive. The figure includes 54 people, about half of those working In tbe Young Adult Division. The remainder of the workers attend¬ ed meetings during the week just passed, and figures on their con- tribjitions wore not available at press time.

Each one of the three vice-chairmen, Marilyn Brown, Judy Ghltman and Sid SlmonS, Invited their majors, and each major Invited his workers on one of the three nights. In that way, ; those.attending were able to meet I the people in charge of the divl- ' sion and also those with whom they will be working. They also received general in¬ formation material about the UJF and the services and agen¬ cies It supports, and specific cam¬ paign instructions and sugges¬ tions. The Young Adult Division is grateful to Dave Goldsmith, Ral>- bl Solomon Poupko and Harry Schwartz who gave so generously of their time as guest speakers for the meetings. Marty Green¬ berg, chairman of the parlor meetings, wishes to thank the majors who were so, diligent in contacting workers to insure their attendance. "Such an eh' thUsiastlc turn-out of those who will be doing the soliciting cer¬ tainly augurs well for the final results in our division," he said.
