'B' Day Is Set For Center On Nov. 11 "B" Day will be held on Nov. 11 at the Jewish Center. Dona¬ tions of blood are needed and appointments may Be made in advance. The bloodmoblle will be operating from riooh to 6 p.m. an that day. The semi-annual blood drive Is sponsored by the Jewish Blood Donor Council. There are 20 local organizations working on this Council, supplying telephone workers, chairmen and other supervisory personnel. THB PBESENT Council is an outgrowth of an organization of Individuals which had its begin¬ ning as a committee under B'nai B'rith. They began during the war seeking blood for emergency use. Following the war the group was sponsored by the Jewish Community Council. An agree¬ ment was drawn up with the American Red Cross to furnish 500 pints of blood per year for which the Red Cross would agree to furnish any member of the Jewish faith, living In Franklin County, with blood whenever it was needed for emergency use, at no charge. Again this year, 500 pints of blood are needed. In the May drive only 166 pints of blood were donated compared to 199 during the preceding drive last November. BECENT cases have shown the importance of this drive. Not long ago a blood relative ot a local family, who were contributors, needed blood in a Massachusetts hospital. The Councii transferred the blood to Massachusetts. The Councii has also transferred blood to California to help cure a leukemia patient—the niece of a local blood donor. These and many other exam¬ ples show why the blood drive is ' fe^', so significant and why it is a good insurance policy.

Herbert Abeles Michigan Governor Writes About Israel Governor G. Mennon Wliliaras of Michigan, and Mrs. Williams, are on an European tour which will take them to Israel and several other countries. In letters from Israel, the Governor wrote: "On the morning of Rosh Hashonah, we went to Peta-Tikvah where we were welcomed by Mayor P. Rashish. After the ceremony we were to leave for the Yah-Lebani. On the WEiy, a citizen stopped his car in the center of the street to greet the Mayor with a cheery "L'Shono Tovo." THE MAYOR became so ex¬ cited, he scraped the fender of his car against one which was parked. "The Memorial Hall is a two- story white building in excellent taste. Through large windows we looked out onto a beautiful gar¬ den. The wall on one side is in wood with an inscription in He¬ brew from a local young poet to the effect that the youth of Israel is grateful for what the land has given them and that they are happy to give tlieir youth to the country. The poet, himself, has given his Ilfe. "The other side opens Into two sizeable rooms, one for war tro¬ phies and the other containing books with the names and pic¬ tures of the honored dead ot the 1948 War of Liberation and the Sinai Campaign. "THE BACK wail is solid with white stone plaques with the name and vital data of each honored hero. Against the wall was a large wreath whloh had been placed there by BeurGurlon only a few days earlier. It was an hpnor for me to place a bouquet in one of the shell cases as a salute to the honored dead. "Jerusalem is magnificent and awe-inspiring, but Galilee has a friendliness and richness of ex¬ pression that inspires the heart. "We began our day at Haifa by enjoying a tremendous view of Haifa Bay as we come down from Frazer, the big cement works and other plants, out into the country. "WE STOPPED for a magnifi¬ cent view of the plain of Jezreel, also called Esdraeion, near the Balfour forest. This plain is rich agricultural land and Is the cross¬ roads of empire. "Not tar away is Meggido, the Biblical Armageddon, where the last battle of the world will be fought. Up and down this plain have moved the armies of Egypt, of Babylonia, of Assyria, of Per¬ sia, the Philistines, the Jews, the Crusaders, the Saracens, the Turks and the English, to name just a tew. "Our first target Is Beth Shear- Im, a rather romantic place be¬ cause only In the last few years have they discovered this burial place of outstanding Jews. "BETH SHEARIM became the favorite burial place for wealthy Jews throughout the then known world In about the second and third centuries after Christ. This Mt. Carmel. Then we pushed because the Romans, after many through the plain of Zeblun, past I Jewish uprisings, finally expelled the new industrial areas, Kaiuer- I the Jews from Jerusalem about 13S A.D. and the traditional bury¬ ing place near Cedron, east of the wails of Jerusalem, was denied them. "The move to Beit Shearim be¬ gan when some of the more prom¬ inent Jewish Rabbis and religious leaders decided to be buried there. "The Sea of Galilee area is very rich indeed and everything grows there. We had seen all kinds of grain and cattle. We saw dates just before crossing the Jordan. "WE STOPPED for lunch at Deganya, the first Kibbutz which will celebrate Its 60th anniversary next year. The leader's name is Barata and he Is known all over the world. He looks much like Ben Gurion. He told us how, when the War of Liberation started, the Syrians crossed the border just a few miles away and attacked. They suffered heavy losses. "Barats said he and some oth¬ ers went to headquarters to get help. He was told they too had nothing, but to do the best they could and all would be well, "Almost aa soon as he got back, leontUmed on pAge i) Leo Yassenoff LEO YASSENOFF TO BE HONORED AT AGONIS BANQUET Leo Yassenoff, a beloved mem¬ ber of the Jewish community and a prominent Columbus civic lead¬ er, who has been on the giving end on thousands of occasions during his life-time, is going to be on the receiving end Thursday night, Oct. 29.
