Alayons To Perform At Torah Academy Dinner Mrs. Howard Schoenbaum, entertainment committee chairman, announces appearance of the Alayons at the Fifth Annual Torah Academy Scholarship Dinner, November 21, at the Sheraton Columbus. The Ayalons, an Israeli group whose entire show is in English, have been praised by audiences and press for their original new touch of folk songs, comedy and satire. Reviewing their performance, "Variety" 5aid; "The Ayalons are a quartet of bright young comics who sing, dance, mug and kid our local heros with a deft touch." THE FOUR AYALONS began singing together in an attempt to elevate the morale of Israeli troops posed in the Valley of Ayalon dur¬ ing the War of Liberation in 1948. The group entertained at front lines, jrmy camps, dug-outs and military hospitals. The Ayalons' talents soon became known throughout Israel, winning recognition with their parodies on plays such as Othello, The Dybbuk and Three Penny Opera. Life Mag¬ azine photographed one of their outstanding performances in the middle of the desert while appear¬ ing before Israeli soldiers during the Sinai Campaign of 1956. THE AYALONS have since olayed extensive engagements throughout the US and Canada, appearing on nationwide, netwqrk TV, in Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, the Borsht Belt, Miami Beach and other entertain¬ ment centers. An afternoon appear¬ ance at the Hillel Foundation here in Columbus, was well-received. Torah Academy's Scholarship Dinner is the major fund raising event for the year. Adding a grade level each year, beginning with kindergarten seven years ago, pre¬ sents a constant demand for more 3nd better scientific equipment, resource materials, textbooks and library facihties. The community is urged to support Torah Academy by attending this semi-formal affair. SHERATON COLUMBUS chefs will prepare and serve the dinner under strict Kasiiruth supervision. Seating is by reservation only. For arrangements, call Mrs. Maynard Goldmeier, 237-5934. Gold Ticket Reservations are $100 per couple. Silver Ticket Reservations are $50 per couple. Arrangements Now Completed For Blood Drive At Center Next Wednesday is "Election Day" for the Jewish Community. Un¬ like the election day of the recent past, however, where failure of regis¬ tered voters to appear might affect only the candidates involved, failure of qualified blood donorS to appear at the Jewish Center on Wednesday might affect the entire community. In some instances, it might mean the difference between life and death. In others, a "light vote"—a poor response to "B" Day—might spell defeat to the protection af- ' forded all members of the com munity, in their ability to receive as much blood as they need, when they need it, without the necessity for prior deposit of blood, or pay¬ ment for it: YOUR "VOTE" is therefore es¬ sential. It you have made an appointment to give blood at the Center, keep it! If you have not made an appointment, any time between the hours of 12:30 and 6:30 and donate. Women are urged to come during the afternoon hours, when the men are at work, and to avoid the lunch period or the late afternoon time as much as possible. MRS. MARTIN POLSTER, presi¬ dent of the Blood Donor Council of the Jewish Community, issued a statement on the eve of "B" Day in which she commended all those who had worked so hard to make the Fall Campaign a success. "We are indebted to the many men and women representing all organizations in our community," she stateiJ, "for their tireless efforts in getting out donors. We know that because of those efforts, and because of the generous sup¬ port the Blood Donor Council has received from the community, our agreement with the Franklin County Red Cross will be honored, and we will be able to continue the protection' we have had for so many years." SANFOftD FISHMAN, chairman of "B" Day, also paid tribute to the committee which had helped, screen and prepare a list of new. first-time donors, including many newcomers to the community. "As our donors get older," Mr. Fi.sh- man said, "they must be replaced with younger people, first-time donors, young men and women who have passed their 21st birthday, or have recently moved to our city. Unless this is done, and new and fresh blood is pumped into our bottles, we are in danger of fail¬ ing to meet our quota to the Red Cross." Mr. Fishman also said that those donors who will reach gallon- club contributions, or multiples in this category, on next Wednesday, should please so notify the workers on hand, so that proper recogni¬ tion may be given them in the newly-organized Jewish Blood Donor Council Honor Gallon Club. Because of the insufficiency of the Red Cross records, this information ia not availabl9, and they must therefore depend on the record kept by the donor himself. CAST YOUR VOTE for a pro¬ tected Jewish Community! A "no- show" is a vote against such pro¬ tection—make your vote count, by showing up to give blood next Wednesday at the Jewish Center! Trades, Professions Leaders Announced Harry Schwartz, chairman of the Trades and Professions Division for the 1966 United Jewish Fund and Council Campaign, announces the appointincnt of si.\ associate chairmen of the Trades and Professions Division. These six community leadtrs are as follows: Hy Weinberg, Norman Meizlish.

Last week it was reported in the Chronicle that M. D. Portman will be the second Jewish City Council mem¬ ber in Columbus history. One en¬ lightened reader, however, Leon E. Mendel, took it upon himself to set the record straight. His letter said: "As a long-stand¬ ing Democrat and old friend and supporter of our newly elected coun¬ cilman, M. D. Portman. may I say that I truly enjoyed your recent article. However. iVlr. Portman is the. third Jev/ish councilman in Co¬ lumbus history, the first having been Otto Nusbaum, who served in Council from 1884 to 1894, and was instrumental in creating the munici¬ pal light plant. It is gratifying to note that our community is finally becoming sufficiently cosmopolitan and liberal to elect minority group candidates on the basis of their proven abiUties. PROOF COMES FROM an article in a local paper of September 6, 1915. which stated that one Otto Nusbaum was a member of City Council from 1884 to 1894, and started the movement that created the municipal light plant. The article went on to state that Nusbaum was the first Jewish child in Columbus, having beei) brought here in 1839 by his parents at the age of six months. UPON FURTHER CHECKING it was discovered that Nusbaum was the third president of the local chapter of the International Order of B'nai B'rith (later lo become Zion Lodge #62, B'nai B'rith) in 1866. Our apologies, Mr. Mendel. M. D. Portman will be the third Jewish councilman in Columbus history. <.• KARON CELEBRATES lOOTH YEAR Jewish Center Goklon Agers celebrated a milestone in the lil'e of Samuel Karon.
