Ackerman Alive Because Of 'Others' "I'm alive because others cared," says Lou Ackerman, junior vice commander of the Ohio State Department of the Jewlah War Veter¬ ans. While serving as a first lieutenant in a front line outfit in Italy during World War II, Ackerman was hit by machine gun tire. Blood plaama and whole blood were immediately given to him. In the first 24 hours after being hit, he was given 16 pints of blood in a battle front hospital. ^ In the days to come and over a period of three years, he received a total of 55 pints of blood. This made it possible for doctors to save his wounded leg. The people who know best how the Blood Donor Program in Columbus works are those who are still alive because blood was available to them when it was needed. ACKERMAN feels very strongly about the program and now that he is able, he is returning his bor¬ rowed blood. The morning of the second day of Passover, Ackerman received a call from the Red Cross inform¬ ing him that his blood type was needed so that an 11 year old boy at Children's Hospital could have an operation. He gave when he was called upon. This waa his eighth pint of blood. Ackerman is now a member of the two gallon club. THE RECORD of the Columbus Jewish Community Blood Bank speaks for Itself. Here are some ot the oases that benefited be¬ cause there is a Jewish Commun¬ ity Blood Bank in Columbus. Miss A. — Aged 10—auto acci¬ dent, head tnjurlea—two pints.

ACCORDING to Mrs. Mitchell Goodman of Zlon Chapter, and Mrs. Irvin Kersteln of Candle¬ light, pledge chairmen, donor pledges are exceeding those of past years, with substantial in¬ creases in many pledges, each Increase meaning another chance on the Travel Caravan. Candlelight Chapter has already achieved its goal, and is now well on its way to 100 percent repre¬ sentation from its membership at the Ball. Zion, with a larger mem¬ bership, and a larger quota. Is maintaining Its record ot being one of the outstanding fund-rais¬ ing chapters in the District, and should surpass even last year's totals. Mrs. Robert Bender, general chairman tor Zion Chapter, and Mrs. Joseph Blum, fund-raising, chairman tor Candlelight, add their fervent "Bless Your Heart," tor all those who have already pledged, and for all those who will pledge, for the Menorah Ball. "BECAUSE of you," they said, "Children who are sick are being healed. Jewish students in col^ leges ail oVer the country find a 'home away from home' at Hlllel. Because ot you, our teen-agers are being trained in Youth Groups such as A.Z.A. and B.B.G. for future leadership and productive lives, through our Career and Vo¬ cational Service Program. Be¬ cause of you, democracy is being strengthened through the Anti- Defamation League. Because of your gift, mentally disturbed chil¬ dren in Israel are being given new life and new hope. Because of what you are doing, to help B'nai B'rith help others, we say— 'Bless Your Heart!'"

There are many more ceises that could be cited but these alone point out the urgent need for blood. Almost anyone can give blood. There are tew restrictions.

Community Leaders Sanction New Home The absolute necessity for a new Columbus Jewish Home for the Aged waa emphasized dramatically to 25 community leaders at a recent meeting at the home of Richard Abel, 2766 Brentwood Ave. Inadequacies ot the present home at 115 Woodland Ave., where 14 aged persons are now being cared for, were detailed by a series of speakers who concluded that, at best, the present home can meet only subsistence neds. PLANS for the new 50-bed Columbus Jewish Home for the Aged were presented and slides ot the artist's conception ot the home shown. The new home will have a patio, Hall ot Lite, living room, physio-therapy room, syna¬ gogue and infirmary in addition to airy, bright and cheerful living quarters. It will be located on College Avenue south ot the Jew¬ ish Center. Abe Wolman, president of the Home, reported that inadequate facilities Iftnlted the home by law to caring for only 14 persons. He said there is a waiting list of 14 elderly persns. Dr. Milton Goodman, who heads the medical staff, declared the present home's medical facilities were good "considering their lim¬ itation," but "not good overall." He said the average age of pres¬ ent residents Is 82 years and that time, and approaching senility, is catching up with them. BECAUSE of its limited facili¬ ties and staff, the home cannot accept the chronically ill or in¬ firm, Dr. Goodman said. He re¬ ported the home had recently added a practical nurse to its staff and arranged for an Ohio State University medical school senior to hold sick call at the home Sundays. Lazaar Brenner, director ot the home, declared that while the surroundings ot his charges were shabby, their spirits were not. "They have no rocking chair philosophy," he declared. "They want to do things. They have a zest tor living." HE SAID that too often the community thinks ot the aged as a group and forgets that people age Individually and require treat¬ ment Eia individuals to maintain self-respect. Thn group atmos¬ phere of a home for the aged re¬ moves the loneliness and loss of importance that elderly people often suffer. "There are miracle drugs to make us all live longer," he said, "but there Is no antl-blotlc for loneliness and rejection." The new home, he said, would provide tor both the physical and spiritual needs. Including a syna¬ gogue, tor the Jewlsil aged. RICHARD Abel reported the findings ot a study on the prob¬ lems of Columbus Jewish aged. It showed the present home, its facilities, services and neighbor¬ hood inadequate to present and future needs and recommended a new building be erected as close to the Jewish community as pos¬ sible.
