The enthusiasu. of those present and the results made it the most successful annual meeting in the history of the Fund when it was announced that $531,000 was contributed. Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman, executive vice-chairman of the National United Jewish Appeal, as guest apeaker, reported to the group on the Immediate needa of tho Emergency Reacue Fund, which this year will bring over 100,000 persona to Israel. Rabbi Friedman traced the beglnntnga of thfs tragic episode detailing the facts for countries behind the Iron Curtain, Hungary, North Africa and Egypt. Rabbi Friedman was very gratified with the outpouring'of Increased .giving throughout the nation and predicted that the A- merlcan Jewish community would not be found wanting In thla, their greatt^t challenge. Presiding at the meeting was Aarop Zacks, general chairman of the 1957 United Jewiah Fund campalgrl. Habbi tPricdmah was Introduced by Robert W. Schiff. Following Rabbi I^rledman's address, the guests matched the needa with generpus contribu¬ tions. Thia outpouring of giving brought $376,000 for the regular campaign of the UJF and $155,000 for the Emergency Rescue Fund. This year the regular campaign goal is $565,000 and $280,000 for I the Rescue Fund. An interesting highlight of the meeting was a musical skit, pre¬ sented by women of the Young Matron'a Division, entitled "Your Help Parade." It was well re¬ ceived by the enthusiastic aud¬ ience. As a special event of the meet¬ ing, Samuel Shlnbach, president of the United Jewish Fund of Co¬ lumbus, presented to Leo Yas¬ senoff a plaque "for outstanding campaign services to the com¬ munity." Rabbi Nathan Zelizer of Temple Tifereth Israel offered the invo¬ cation and Rabbi Samuel W. Rub¬ enstein of Agudas Achim gave the benediction. At the conclusion of the meet¬ ing, Mr. Zacks urged those pres¬ ent tp volunteer to call on t|jiose prospects who were unable tb at¬ tend the annual dinner, "If we can spread the -nthusiasm gener¬ ated at this meeting, we can at¬ tain our goal this year. Every¬ thing now depends on the ability of all workers to tell the story to those who have not yet given. This must be done vigorously and successfully. We must see a con¬ tinued outpouring of increased gifts to the regular campaign and to the Emergency Rescue Fund." Curtain Time For "Finian" By AL LCSSHEIAf Perhaps you have witnessed some of the radio and TV appear¬ ances in which members of the cast presented small samples of . "FinlahV lovely songs and dances. Then we need not tell you that Gallery Players are offering, fpr the next four^ nights, the most wonderful show in their five year history. We urge yoii to go after your tickets now at the Jewish Center, at HUIel or Heaton's. The way tickets have been selling all week, we need add little more but to repeat: Don't mias It . . ¦ "Finian's Rainbow." Since program apace allows no footnotes about the many fine people on stage and behind the wings . . . here are a few more sketches: Particularly we want you to know that David Woehrle, our Flnian, Is a graduate of the Pasa¬ dena Playhouse and has worked for four years with the Brown- Adams Professional Studio in New York. He will soon return to California. His latest Broadway appear¬ ance was in "Rose Tattoo." Amelia Fatt, who also Joins in the group dancing, appears pri¬ marily in the part of Susan Ma- honey, the deaf-muie sister of Woody. Unaljle to speak, she ex¬ presses her thoughts and feelings solely through her eloquent dance movements. Amelia Is a pupil of the Jorg Fasting School of Danc¬ ing and this year she Is a soloist in the Fasting Ballet. Our com¬ munity has admired this talented native of New York previously when she played and danced the lead in "Alice In Wonderland.'* Og, the leprechaun, la a charac¬ ter out of this world, a lovable, puckish goblin, whohi Walt Dis¬ ney might have created or whom Shakespeare could well have In¬ vented to enhance his "Midsum¬ mer Night's Dream." This multi¬ dimensional role calls for an ac- tor-slnger-dancer of exceptional versatility. Uallery Players were fortunate to find a gifted young man ideal¬ ly suited right on tholr own board of directors. Audiences will be delighted with the humorous an- INTERVIEWS WITH AMERICAN DESIGNERS FEATURE SISTERHOOD LUNCHEON MAY 14 At the Installation luncheon Tuesday, May 14, at Winding Hollow Country Club, membera of Rogo E.

If anyone has been inadvertently overlooked, call Mrs. Bert Rosen¬ thal, telephone chairman. tics of Marv Bonowltz, who makes the most of aome of the best this show has to offer so generously in rhj^hm and melo¬ dy, The story of Flnian Is peppered with clever satire and witty digs about politics, business and do¬ mestic cliches, fpr Instance when "Lucky Gold" Cigarettes enter the picture and the mall order house of Shears and Robust gets quite involved in Finian's shen- nanigans. The story comes to a climax when the great merchants personally appear on stage, Mr. Shears being played by Earl Son- nentttein and Mr. Robust portray¬ ed by Gallery Players' most ver¬ satile showman, Larry Kent. Sol Swack (sheriff) was last seen as Chris Keller In Gallery'^s 1956 showing of "All My Sons." He is aaaistcd in maintEiinlng law and order In Rainbow Valley by Marvin Netinowitz (deputy), who just recently made hia GP debut aa Toklo In "Golden Boy." In this same production Oficar Smllack lent pathos and dignity to the role of Joe's father. In "Flnian" he lends his voice to the chorus in general and to the part of the "First Sharecropper" in particu¬ lar. When Senator Billboard Raw- kina turns black In the middle of the stage to face thj; lot of a destitute uhderprlvilcged Negro, he ia mercifully accepted ua a member of the "Passion Pilgrim Gospeleers," at that point a thrco- man quartet formed by ClmrlcH Kutlierford, Philip Johnson und James IMarr, James, former voice student at Capital Univeraity, Is now choir director of the Macedonia Church and also a member-^f the N.A.- N.M.
