Gen. Wilton B.

The Liloh Group has added a few innovations for Its own members, encouraging them to earn their donor contributions through personal projects and to save their dimes throughout the year in "Eye" Banks. AND "Em?' Bank is so named because, when full. It holds $5 and provides treatment of one eye for trachoma. Several Liloh members earned part of their donor contri¬ bution through their personal pro¬ jects.

Through the diligent work of Liloh's donor committees and the satisfactory results of individual projects, many Llloh women will be attending the 31st annual donor dinner, helping to make it a gala success.

The series will begin on Mon¬ day evening, Nov. 2, and will con. tinue for four additional sessions, on the first Tuesday evening of each month thereafter. AOOOBDING to Mrs. Harry Goldberg, president of the Jewish Family Service, and Mrs. Joseph Zox, president of the Center, the purpose of the Family Life Edu¬ cation program will be to broad¬ en the understanding of the family relationship, to enrich family life, apd to prevent un¬ happy family relationships. "We believe that our com¬ munity will, welcome the oppor¬ tunity to share in this program," they stated. "The discussions wlU cover the years of childhood, from pre-school, through the mid¬ dle years, and adolescence, as well as questions concerning mar- (ooDtluued on page 4) delicate operations have been per¬ formed. Despite the slim chances for success, all patients are doing well. These operations are being con¬ ducted in relatively few of the world's largest medical centers and few men are qualified to per¬ form them. Through the gener¬ osity of Dr. Monty Bernstein of Beverly Hills, C^lif., Dr.' Jerome Kay, director of (Cardiac Surgery at the University of Southern California and Dr. Morse Shapiro of the Cedars of Lebanon Hospit¬ al in Loa Angeles went to Israel for the initial operations. Working with these renowned experts were Prof. Chanoch Mllwtdsky, director of Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery and Prof. K. Braun, director of Cardiac Disease and Vascular Disease Re¬ search Unit of Hadassah. THE OPERATIONS will soon resume with the Hadassah doc¬ tors in full command. Since the initial eight operations. Dr. Mii- widsky has been in California participating in 35 more heart op- perations — as part of Hadassah's fellowship plan for providing our medical men with the latest, most advanced training. While the Hadassah doctors were well-trained chest surgeons and had used the closed-heart method, the high incidence of valvular heart disease In Israel (which results from rheumatic fever) necessitated the Inaugur¬ ation of the open-heart method. Such advances tn the saving of life have been the spur to the women of Hadassah, everywhere, to give their full-hearted support to such projects as (Columbus Ha¬ dassah's annual Donor Dinner. dent Elsenhower had discussed the controversial subject with Khrushchev. American Jewish leaders were unable to meet with the Soviet Premier for the same purpose during Khrushchev's tour of the United States. KHRUSHCHEV told the Presi¬ dent that he had been aware of the question, Gen, Persons said, "but that it was his position that. So far as possible, the Jewish people In the Soviet Union are treated like everyone else." Thla response, in effect, was similar to the answer Khrushchev gave to a question prepared by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and asked of him at his televised appearance before the Nationai Press Club "The President," Gen. Persons informed Katz, "then Informed Khrushchev of the concern that had been expressed to him by representatives of the Jewish people in the United States over the situation of the Jewish people in the Soviet Union." Katz lauded the President's in¬ tervention, saying that it prob¬ ably left a "aigniflcsnt impres¬ sion" on the Soviet. Premier, and "this can only have a very favor¬ able effect on the future cultural and religious existence of Jews In the Soviet Union," The B'nai B'rith head said that the Presi¬ dent had "rendered the Jewish community a great service." THE B'NAI B'RITH leader dls closed today that, following his meeting with President Eisen hower on Sept. 23, shortly before the start of the Camp David talks, he had "left the White House with the impression that the Pres ident had placed the subject of Soviet Jews on the Camp David agenda." Katz, Maurice Blsgyer, executive vice president of B'nai B'rith, and Mrs. Charles D. Solo- vlch, president of B'nai B'rith Women, had met with Eisenhower to present him with the B'nal B'rith President's medal for his efforts in preserving world peace. Weinfeld Is Named UJF 'Cash' Chairman Herbert S. Levy, president of the United Jewish Fund has an¬ nounced the appointment of A, B. Weinfeld as chairman of the cur¬ rent Cash Mobilization efforts. It is during this period that all of the agencies, local, national and overseas, but particularly the overseas agencies, are in urgent need of immediate cash funds. This is necessary in order to maintain a normal degree of services for these agencies so they may continue their opera¬ tions with the flow of cash from ours and similar funds throughout the country, AN URGENT appeal has been made by Morris W. Berinstein, general chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, for cash payments to the UJA In order to maintain the program of Its agencies, "The UJA programs face a ser¬ ious hampering of their activities for lack of funds," Berinstein said. "Cash is desperately needed now in order to continue the ur¬ gent Immigrant absorption pro¬ grams in Israel, as well as vital welfare and rehabilitation pro¬ grams in some 25 other countries. Including the United States. "We have made a great deal of progress in recent months. We have helped thousands of recent immigrants to secure a greater measure of health and happiness and opportunity. We have moved some 15,000 people from the ma'abarot slum dwellings to de¬ cent housing, WE HAVE provided care, ther¬ apy and training for tens of thousands of handicapped, aged and ill. We have helped farm set¬ tlements on the road to economic self-sufficiency. We have main¬ tained our extensive programs of aid to Jews in Europe, North Africa and the Near East, But we all know that the job is far from finished, that the end of need has not been reached, and that there Is much that remains to be done." Levy stated that Weinfeld will be in touch with the contributors shortly, but in the meantime, the president urged that payments be sent to the United Jewish Fund Office as soon as possible.

Golden came to Columbus last weekend to speak to the Ohio Library Association. He took a few minutes from his morning schedule to talk with the press. HIS FHtST words were, "Whole thing's kind of silly. Isn't It ~ being here." Golden explained that his time is too limited. "I have a news¬ paper and I shouldn't be here," he said.

Golden is the author of two best selling books, "Only In America" and "For Two Cents Plain," He alao publishes, edits and writes the "Carolina Israelite" an unusual little paper with an unusually large and wide spread circulation, HE WAS asked if he was sorry about his success since It took so much time away from his newspaper. "No one could be sorry writing two best sellers. I learned the uses o. solitude long ago." Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee, two Ohioans, who have done some successful plays such as "Auntie Mame" and "In¬ herit the Wind,"- are readying Goiden's "Only In America" for Broadway presentation. Golden recently saw a rehearsal of the play and he said, "It's quite- a thing. 1 think these fellows have succeeded in making this enter¬ tainment, not propaganda." . TURNING to more general topics he gave his views on In¬ tegration, "Law—not a chance in the world (for integration) other¬ wise. "There is no such thing as gradually . . . Once you establish a law—Nothing else, only law. "Some schools will integrate to¬ morrow, some next year, some not In our lifetime. "IN LrrTLE Rock the big mis¬ take W£is not to say now to In¬ tegration. The leadership wasn't there to say, "Thla is it!' This gave the crackpots a chance to move. "Lady Macbeth said," Golden continued, " 'If it were done, let it be done immediately,'" Golden continued, "The South¬ erner haa a point In fighting. He doesn't have a moral, religious or legal leg to atand on but he haa a aocioiogical one, He'a hanging on to a dream." ON THE Khrushchev visit. Golden said, "We'd have to gain a lot to counter what he got, "I think the Russians decided after Sputnik that they could best us without a war," "Can they?" Golden was asked. he "It's not an easy question said. "I hope not!" And with that note Harry Gol¬ den went to speak to the librar¬ ians. On the Way out he mention¬ ed that he has finished a book the life of Carl Sandburg. Golden is a busy man, with a philosophic thought on nearly everything, but near to his heart, is his first love. "The Carolina Israelite." It always nudges its way to his lips.
