"It has taken a tremendous amount of work and effort on the part of many people who have co¬ operated with me and the genero¬ sity of the entire conw^unity to make this possible. Since we have been working together for nearly five years to build this home, my greatest happiness, which I'm sure is also yours, is to pay off the mortgage. "We owe $96,000 and the interest costs approximately $5,QQ0 per year. If you could see your way clear to pay your pledge in full by Jan. 1, it would really thrill us. But, far more important, it would re¬ lieve us of the burden of $5,000 a year for interest. "Our goal is to pay the bank off completely by Jan. 1. Sincerely, Aaron Zacks."

"While Israel's achievements have evoked admiration in almost every part of the world," Oppen¬ heimer said, "the fact is that our job is only half done because we must build up the country to sus¬ tain a population that is rising at a rapid rate. They require contin¬ ued aid through Israel Bonds to develop their uninhabited areas, in¬ cluding the unpopulated regions of the Galilee and the Negev, where they must settle many of the new immigrants who are coming to Is¬ rael in greater numbers this year than in recent years. "As outside governmental sources of financial assistance decrease, we must rely more heavily on Israel Bonds. For that i;eason, more Is¬ rael Bonds must be sold this year than ever before. "Now that redemption is taking place and Israel has demonstrated so effectively its productive use of Israel Bond money, these bonds clearly represent a very sound and gratifying investment. The people of Israel are keenly aware of the decisive importance of American Jewry's partnership with them through the medium of Israel Bonds. I am very happy that I am able to participate in this pro¬ ject which has had so powerful an impaqt and so historic a role in the development of the State of Israel."
