COLUMBUS •EDITION -wr^ Serving Coiumous. Dayton ana Central Unio Jewish Communun,. TK COLUMBUS EDITION '"^^'n-;^ \"^ ^:! Vol. 38. No. 45 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, I960 39 Da'ottd to Ani»rIe«B and Jawlin Idcali EDITORIAL Time To Act It was our privilege to sit in on a committee meet¬ ing for the new Jewish Home for the Aged a short time ago. We were extremely stimulated to see and feel the tremor and vibrations of the group that has brought this project to its present stage. The committee is led by Aaron Zacks, chairman, with William Kahn, Jack Resler and Ralph Rosenthal as vice-chairmen. An adequate Home for the Aged certainly fits into the picture of Columbus' growing community. As in Jewish basic training and teachings, we are taught to respect and honor our elders, to help those who need help and to do good for all. The future of our aged is our first responsibility. It wiil be a blessing to many in the community to know that when Ihcy reach their later years, there will be a beautiful Home, wilh well equipped personal, physical and recreational facilities and a synagogue, where either by desire or necessity, one may go to live out his pr her years. This project will cost approximately $850,000, of which $650,000 has been raised to date..This sum waS pledged by only 42G individuals, which we feel is a positive sign. This leaves a balance of approximately $200,000 to be raised before the Home can be completed. A concentrated effort to obtain the balance of the money was kicked off today. The committee is going to make every effort lo contact each and every individual in the community so that he or she may give whatever possible to make this dream a reality. Pledges are pay¬ able over a three-year period. There are many fine memorials which can be pur¬ chased in memory of loved ones. This project, as all money-raising projects, is a large one. We feel that any¬ one who has not been contacted, should contact Zacks or other members of the committee. They can be reach¬ ed at CA. 1-5181. Don't wait for the committee to call on you. The committee has done a most complete and effi¬ cient job of planning, their research was tremendous and their decisions, we feel, sound. Every effort was made for the necessary facilities. More important, every effort has been made in planning, so that additional fund-raising will not be necessary to add a wing or make other enlargements, due to the lack of foresight of the committee. This type of silualion,i;infortunately, has happened many times in the past. Every step to eliminate such a possibility has been taken in this case. The community as a whole should fall in line and make this dream a reality. The ground-breaking for the new Home is schetluled for this Sunday, Oct. 30. This project is a most worthy and wonderful one for anyone to be able to say, "I am part of this community insti¬ tution." We take this opportunity to urge the community to give a 100 per cent response to this need. Let our High Holyday prayers, "Do not cast us away in our old age, and when our strength fails, do not forsake us," become more meaningful with the erection of this much heeded institution in our community. Support the new Jewish Home for the Aged by making a pledge now. ATTITUDE OF BOTH CANDIDATES TOWARD MINORITIES VIEWED The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has warned lhat "un¬ substantiated rumors" concerning the attitudes of the two major Presidential eandldates toward minority groups are "a major dis¬ service to the nation." Henry Edward Schultz. the League's na.tional chairman, as¬ serted that both major parties have been "victimized" by "false charges of bigotry against their candidates" for "political advan¬ tage with somo minority group." HE DEXiLAKED that questions have been raised with the League concerning the attitude of both Vice President Nixon and Senator Kennedy toward Jews. "We believe," Schultz said, "that both men (are) free of anti- Semitic bias. Nor is there any doubt but that the two Vice Presi¬ dential candidates are free of such prejudice." Schuitz's statement in full fol¬ lows: "AN UNHAPPY phenomenon of Presidential election campaigns In our time is the unsubstantiated rumor circulated concerning the attitudes of the principal candi¬ dates toward one minority group or another. The Antl-Defamatlon League believes it to be a major disservice to the nation to raise false charges of bigotry against a candidate so as to gain political advantage with some minority group. This kind of defamation has victimized both parties. "Questions have been raised with the League, and are likely to continue to be raised, about the attitude of Vice President Nixon and Senator Kennedy toward Jews. We believe both men to be wholly free of anti-Semitic bias. Nor Is there any doubt but that the two Vice Presidential candi dates are free of such prejudice. "Our responsibility over nearly half-a-century of public service has been to expose bigotry and anti-Semitism. We believe It equally important to denounce charges of antl-ScmitIsm that are false. We find It necessary to do so at this time In order to check the rising tide of false rumors that may divert the electorate from the legitimate Issues of the Presidential campaign." Blood Is Needed!

All brought through symbolic Images of the book, the doctor's case book; the egg, for tests; the bell, signifying the sound of telephone and door bells of Hadassah workers. THE FUM produced by Hazel Greenwald and the script pre¬ pared by J. E. Raeven Is an actual on the scene reproduction of a great moment In larael, a great moment In Hadassah. The showing of the film will give Hadassah members and their guests a view of the results of the dedicated Hadassah work. JACKIE MASON, famed comic, will highlight the program. He Is considered "a refreshingly dif¬ ferent comic, because of his dis- armlngly simple sort ot delivery, which hides razor-wit and keen observaUon, of the foibles of hu¬ man behavior." After his appearance at the famed Concord Hotel he appeared tor 12 weeks at the prominent Slate Brothers night club In Holly¬ wood. Comedian Phil Silvers, Jan Murray and Alan King raved about this performer when they saw his act. HE WAS recalled twice to the Steve Allen Show after his first performance. The los Angeles §^i Examiner wrote of him "We've a (Continuad on paqa 4} This Is an api>eal! Yes, this is an appeal, an appeal to every member of the Jewish Community from the age of 18 to the age of 60. This is not an appeal for money nor Is it an appeal for time nor for services. It Is an appeal for the one commodity that costa nothing—^but can coat a person his or her life if It Is not given. This most precious commodity which neither money, begging, cajoling, nor pleading can buy Is blood, pure human blood which only members of the community can give. Every pint of blood is used for one purpose and one purpose only— to save a life. THB BLOOD Donor Day is Wednesday, Nov. 2, at the Jewish Center, 1125 College Ave., from the hours of noon to 6 p.m. Com¬ ing to "B" Day is what Is desired. The Jewish Community needs blood vitally, more drastically than ever before, more so than even during the last two wars, and It was desperately needed th6n. The quota, which has been rais¬ ed by the Red Cross due to the Increase of the Jewish population over the-past few years, must be met, and it can only be met If all cooperate and come to the Center for those few minutes it takes to give a pint of blood. NO PROSPECnVB donor will give until he or she Is first exam¬ ined by the attending physician and found to be physically fit to give. After donating, the donor Is treated to refreshments, and if needed, transportation and nurs¬ ery service Is also available. > A hard working voluntary staff of over 300 telephone workers have contacted over several thousand prospective donors to give this "B" Day. It Is Inevitable that someone might be missed who can give and wants to give. Anyone In this category should call BB. 1.4892 and make an ap¬ pointment. Those who have been called and have said "yes" to the worker must be sure to keep ths appointment and give aa in tine past. There Is no substitute for blood. It is essential to life and an amount as small as a "pint" if not available when needed can mean the difference between "life" and "death." Heed tho appeal and give because the gift of one pint of blood will save someone's Jife, perhaps yours.
