The principle challenge facing Israel today is— how to keep the country from be¬ coming "two Israels." There is al¬ ready talk of "the second Israel," the tens of thousands of immigrants who arrived in the country destitute, for the most part with no vocational training, and were sent from the boat to rural backwaters. The feeling is that if something is not done immediately to rescue them and their children from the cultural oblivion that threatens to become self-perpetuating, the citizens of the next generation will not be up fo coping with the prob¬ lems of a modern democratic state. THAT WAS the message delivered to a group of young American Jewish community leaders here this week by the top man in newcomer absorption. South African born Louis Pincus. Chairman of the Jewish Agency. He was speaking to the Fifth Annual United Jewish Appeal Young Leadership Mission, more than 100 men and women in the 25 to 40 age bracket who are being groomed to lead the U.J.A. campaigns of the future. Hailing from 32 American com¬ munities, they are presently on a two-week tour of Israel that will take them from one end of the country to the other, with meet¬ ings scheduled with such leaders as President Zalman Shazar, Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Deputy Prime Minister Abba Eban. PARTICIPATING in the group from Columbus are: Mr, and Mrs. JWB WOMEN'S SERVICE COMMITTEE ENTERTAINS VETERANS IN CHILLICOTHE Members of the JWB Women's Service Committee spent last Wed¬ nesday at the VA Hospital in Chillicothe. The entire day was spent in a varied program for several wards. At noon, a picnic lunch was served to 50 men on the hospital picnic grounds. These men were also their guests for a mid-afternoon snack and games party. DURING THE afternoon, two closed wards were visited. Light re¬ freshments were served and note Millard Cummins. 167 S. Columbia Ave.; Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Frank, 71 S. Merkle Rd.; Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Zacks, 78 E. Chestnut St. Earlier, the group got a glimpse of yet another Israel, one with most of its future behind it, yet still un¬ dismayed. They were on a visit to a home for the aged run by the American Joint Distribution Com¬ mittee, a worldwide enterprise sup¬ ported entirely from UJA funds. HERE, at Rishon Lezion, on a little knoll some 15 miles south of Tel Aviv, an oasis of green re¬ claimed from the surrounding sand dunes, more than 250 oldsters- average age 78—are living out the twilight of their hves under one of the most advanced geriatric pro¬ grams being practiced anywhere. United Jewish Appeal, a benefici¬ ary of the United Jewish Fund and Council of Columbus, aids 352,000 immigrants in Israel, either through the Joint Distribution Committee or through the Jewish Agency. In 29 other countries, assistance is ex¬ tended to another 400,000—all told a total of three quarters of a million Jewish men, women and children.

LONDON SYNAGOGUES DAMAGED BY FIRES LONDON (JTA) - Two more .synagogues were set afire and badly damaged in different parts of greater London this week. The at¬ tacks were the 21st and 22nd of this type in London since last fall, de¬ spite the special precautions taken to guard Jewish communal prop¬ erty. The first of the fires broke nut shortly after midnight at the Ilford synagogue. Firemen found that in¬ flammable liquid had been poured on the edifice. THE BLAZE blew out most of the synagogue's windows, and damaged the floor and much of the woodwork. Scrawled on one of the walls were the slogans "Heil, Hitler!," and "We shall free Britain from Jewish control." About two hours later, fire blazed in an entirely different section of the city, in a synagogue on Lea Bridge Road, Clapton. The damage here was about the same as in the Jewish house of worship at Ilford. SCOTLAND YARD announced several weeks ago that it was tak¬ ing special precautions to guard Jewish houses of worship and in¬ stitutions, and the Government had assured the House of Commons formally that police surveillance is in effect against anti-Semitic out¬ breaks.
