Vol. 41, No. 19 FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1963 — 16 lYA.., aiti 39 '':;;3^.:?/7.?.1.r Alvin Schottenstein Heads Bond Drive Alvin E. Schottenstein, outstanding Columbus Jewish com¬ munity leader, has been named to the post of chairman of the Columbu.s committee for State of Israel Bonds for the 1901.3 campaign, it was announced today by Dr. B. B. Caplan, 1902 Israel Bond chairman. Mr. and Mrs. Schottenstein have recently returned from Israel, and were delighted to see the many projects built with Israel Bond dollars. Schottenstein, who served as Israel Bond Chair¬ man in 1961, is president of the E. L. Schottenstein Department Store and resides with his wife, Beverly, at 30 N. Drexel Ave. The Schot- tensteins are the parents of Chuck, Bobbie, Gary and Randee. SCHOTTENSTEIN attended the Ohio State University College of Commerce but his education was interrupted by the war where he served as a captain in the army in the China-Burma-India theatre. He is a member of Agudas Achim, Tifereth Israel, Beth Jacob, B'nai B'rith, ZOA, The Columbus Cham¬ ber of Commerce and a member of the Board of the Columbus Tor¬ ah Academy. Since its inception in 1951, the Israel Bond effort has produced more than $600,000,000 in invest¬ ment capital for the development of every sector of Israel's economy. "THE YEAR 1963 marks two epic Alvin E. Schottenstein milestones for Israel," stated Schot¬ tenstein in accepting the chairman¬ ship, "namely, the celebration of Jsrael's 15th anniversary as a free nation, and the beginning of the redemption of the first Israel Bonds. It also sees Israel at the threshold of new and greater achievements. "The giant strides Israel has made in the economic development of the upper half of the country must now be duplicated in the tre¬ mendous task of reclaiming' the Negev desert to the south. Under the impact of increased Israel Bond investments, the national irrigation system must be completed to bring water to arid regions, construction of the new deep water harbor at Ashdod must be accelerated, and new development towns that dot the desert must be built up to re¬ ceive the steady wave of new im¬ migrants who need homes an'd fac¬ tories and farms, schools, roads and railroads to become self-sustaining. "THE PATTERN established and followed so successfully in the north must b'e adapted to the south, not only to absorb many newcomers, but to broaden the scope of the country's economic growth. "In view of the fact that many thousands of .lews are still coming into Israel from disturbed areas in other parts ot the world, Israel Bond funds are required to provide the economic means for their settle¬ ment as productiye citizens of their new homeland. Israel also needs large resources to reclaim the Ne¬ gev desert that covers more than half her total area," Schottenstein said. "It is most significant that in her 15th anniversary year Israel will start to redeem the first Israel (continued on p«g« 4) SENECA HOTEL WILL BE SETTING FOR GOL.

'Damn Yankees' Opens May 18 "Damn Yankees," the musical comedy that broke an all- time jinx against Broadway stage shows dealing with baseball, has been .scheduled as the next attraction of the Gallery Players at The Jewish Center. Even when written by the gi-eat and redoubtable Ring Larclner, play after play involving the national pastime had alway.s been failures on the New York .stage — until "Damn Yankees" scored its run of more than two years beginning in the spring of 1955, when critics and the theatre-going public hailed it as a pennant winner. DIRECTED BY Harold M. Eisen¬ stein, with choreography by Rick Norris and musical direction by Dave Angus and Alvin Beck, the Gallery Players musical concerned with dizzy diamond doings and a distracting Delilah will open on Sat¬ urday evening. May 18. Subsequent performances are, at present, scheduled for May 19, 22, 23, 25 and 26. The central figure of "Damn Yankees" is an especially unfortu¬ nate case. Played by Beck, he is one of those bleeding fans, com¬ mitted heart and soul to the most hopeless team in the league, the Washington Senators. As he sits before his TV set one evening watching his team lose as usual, he mutters morosely that he'd sell his soul to be able to help them win a pennant. The words are hardly spoken when the Devil, portrayed by Gene Gerrard of WOSU Radio, appears to cosummate the sale. The 50ish fellow is transformed into a strapping .young athlete who can hit two home runs at every game so that his beloved Senators are about to supplant the Yankees in first place. Frank Johnson sings and acts the part of the rejuvanat- ed hero. THE DIABOLICALLY-gifted baU- player gets homesick for his un¬ derstanding domestic wife, por¬ trayed by Jean Westrick of TV fame. Mephisto has a trick with which to get final possession of Joe's soul, and he calls upon his most reliable handmaiden. This is a bewitching siren named Lola. She had also done a bit of soul-bartering. Once the ugliest girl in Providence, R. I., in return for beauty she put herself at the beck and call of the Devil. She is now assigned to put her seduction powers to work on the ballplayer to keep his thoughs away from re¬ turning to his wife. Lenny Schot¬ tenstein sings and dances the role of Lucifer's luscious lovely. THE SATISFYING tale of how the Yankees lost the pennant and yet Joe saves his soul despite the temptations of the most combusi- ble enchantress of the Devil's team, (contlnuad on pago 4) w:. 1,; •: Tommy Henrich, (left) local restauranteur and ex- "damn Yankee" slugger, smiles approvingly as Julian Bar¬ nett, who appears In the Gallery Players production of "Damn Yankees" as the owner of the last place Washington Senators, shows off the talents of his singing ball players.

Actual¬ ly Henrich was present as a technical advisor at the re¬ hearsal of the diamond musical which opens May 18 at The Jewish Center.
