Judge Draper interpreted the sig¬ nificance of the Constitution and read pasages from jt for the bene¬ fit of the club members. "TO BE AN AMERICAN is the most wonderful thing in the world," the judge told his audience. "Wliep I returned from Europe recently, and saw the Statue of Liberty, it made me feel — as I am sure it has you — most thankful that I am an American." A. R. Greenspun introduced Judge Draper as "a friend of the Center," and an outstanding Ameri¬ can. ALSO ASSISTING in the celebra¬ tion was an honor guard from the Jewish War Veterans,. Capitol Post 122. In charge of lowering the flag was Department of Ohio Command¬ er Herman Eisenman. He was as¬ sisted by Capitol Post 122 Com¬ mander Dr. Albert Tyroler, Aaron Dachner, Norman Cohen, Sidney Wolpert and Ben Izeman. ¦ Each Golden Ager was given a small flag to remind him of his American heritage.

He said if Israeli and Arab lead¬ ers could meet face to face, he was sure the Arabs would find out that peace was in the best interests of all concerned and that Israel was ready, without prior conditions, to enter such discussions. He stressed he would be on the alert for any opening which might point to prog¬ ress in that area. Meanwhile, he said, the key problem was to make sure that the Middle East arms balance was "not further upset" and that Israel be kept strong enough to deter any attack. He said the Hawk missiles the United States is selling to Israel would be useful against any enemy air attack but he also said "we must take into consideration fur¬ ther developments" taking place in the neighboring Arab countries, a reference to Egypt's acquisition of Russian rockets and the advanced weapons on' which imported West German scientists were working. He said he felt the United States was striving to promote peace in the Middle East, adding there might be difference of views as to the means. The best contribution from the United States, he added, would be prevention ot conditions likely to encourage an Arab attack, as well as continued United States ef¬ forts to persuade the Arabs to drop their policies of belligerence and war preparations. If missiles and poison gas are considered unconventional weapons, he said in reply to another question,' it should be noted that it "has al¬ ready been reported" that Egypt was busy in both areas. He reiterat¬ ed Israel's long-standing effort to pay compensation to Arab refugees for property abandoned in the 1948 war. He also reiterated that this was based on the expectation that international assistance would be available and that, pajmient would be part of a comprehensive solu¬ tion of the refugee problem. joyable during the first period Swimming is one of the leading activities.

THE COMPLETE cooperation of the community is urged to ensure the continuance of this blood donor program and according to Quinn and Sanford Fishman, who was chairman of the Spring campaign, many adult members of the com¬ munity who can and should be giv¬ ing blood are still not volunteering or do not show up when they have promised to donate. "We are prepared to process al¬ most double the number we take care of on 'B' Day," stated Quinn. "It is of the utmost urgency and Importance that everyone who can give does so either on 'B' Day or at the Red Cross Center, giving credit for their donations to the Jewish Community Blood Donor Council. It is only in this way that \ye can insure the protection we now enjoy." Plans are now being completed for the Fall campaign, details of which will soon be announced.

JDC Annual Report Tells Amount Of 1962 Aid, Expenditures (EDITOR'S NOTE — JDC Is one of tho more than 40 local, national, overseas and Israeli beueilcluries ol tho United Jewish Fund and Council in Columbus.) In 1962 the Joint Distribution Committee extended relief, welfare and other aid to 277,000 men, women and children In 29 countries, Moses A. Leavitt, JDC Executive Vice-Chairman, reported In the agency's 1962 annual report. Mr. Leavitt disclosed that the cost of the organization's relief, resettlement and re¬ habilitation program was $28,544,000, provided mainly by the campaigns of the United Jewish Appeal. The total number helped by JDC major American agency aiding needy Jews abroad, was 25,500 greater than the previous year. This increase was due largely to the influx into France of 100,000 Jew¬ ish refugees from Algeria. "ONCE AGAIN, in 1962, the 'un¬ expected' happened, Leavitt said. "The mass exodus of Algerian Jews to France, as well as the continued into that country, meant that help had to be provided for thousands of men, women and children for whom there was no provision in JDC's budget for 1962. It meant that — since only limited funds were available to JDC — funds had to be taken from one aiea of need to be used In an area of greater need." Additional thousands of Jewish Influx of Jews from other areasrefugees made their way to France from other parts of North Africa and from Eastern Europe, Leavitt said. "Suddenly the French Jewish community found that it had grown to more than 500,000 — the fourth largest Jewish community in the world, exceeded only by the United States, the Soviet Union and Is¬ rael." IN A FOREWORD to the report, Edward-M. M. Warburg, JDC chair¬ man, noted that fortunat:^y for JDC and for the thousands ot refugees who needed help, the Jews of France and European countries un¬ dertook special emergency fund- raising campaigns on their behalf. "Despite the help of the French government, the need of the refu¬ gees tor additional assistance was extensive," he declared. "These needs were met net by JDC alone," Warburg added, "but by the French Jewish community and bjr other European Jewish communities." He cited this as evi¬ dence of a revival of European Jewry, a revival "which would never have come to pass without the spark which continued to glow in the hearts of European Jewry, despite the havoc of war and Nazism, without their own determi¬ nation to survive." FOR 1963 JDC has dcpted a budget of $30,769,000 for aid to needy Jews overseas. JDC has spent more than $750,000,000 on its world-wide welfare programs since its inception in 1914. Although JDC continues to re¬ ceive the bulk'of its finances from the United Jewish Appeal, Leavitt noted a substantial allocation from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, to be^ used for the relief and tehabilita- tion of Nazi victims. He also report¬ ed the receipt ot smaller sums con¬ tributed by Jewish communities in Canada, Latin America and by a number of governmental and inter¬ governmental agencies. LEAVITT NOTED that JDC as¬ sisted more than 84,000'men, wo¬ men and children in Israel during 1962. Of^his number.oelose to 50,000 were aided by Malben, the JDC welfare program'on behalf of aged, ill and handicapped newcomers to Israel. During the year Malben con¬ tinued to stress extra-mural care, giving priority within institutions to bedridden cases. As a result, Malben's institutional caseload de¬ creased from 5,47S at the beginning of the year to 5,025 in December, a drop of 450 during the 12-month period. The JDC report also contains a survey of the JDC community in¬ formation program, inaugurated in 1961 to keep American communities informed on the world-wide activi¬ ties of the agency, by Sol Satinsky of Philadelphia, chairman of the JDC National Council. The program includes visiU by JDC overseas per¬ sonnel to cities throuthout the coun¬ try to deUver first-hand reports on developments affecting Jews in Eu¬ rope, North Africa and the Middle East, including Israel. IN 1961, Satinsky reported, JDC overseas staff members visited ap- proxunately 100 cities in the United States and Canada for report meet¬ ings with various community groups. In the 1962-63 period the schedule provided for seven JDC speakers to tour American com- muniUes as part of the community information progranj, and also on behalf of the United Jewish Appeal. The report also contains JDC*a annual financial statements.
