"Louis Nye will be the headliner at the 13th annual Agudas Achim Brotherhood 'Boys Night Out with the Stars' set for Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 6:30 p.m. in the Silberstein Social Ilall," announced Robert Shapiro, General Campaign chairman. According to critics, Nye's brilliant laugh formula combines expert mimicry with a deft eye for character types and has kept him in the forefront of audience popularity since bursting into national prominence as Gordon Hathaway on the Steve Allen Show. Nye's greeting of "Hi- Ho Steverino" became a household phrase. As Nye's popularity grew, so did his guest appearances with such personalities as ^ Jimmy Durante, Judy Gar- ^ land, Jack Benny, Jonathan Winters and more recently with, such-co-stars as Steve Martin, David Copperfield and Bob Hope. He also made frequent guest appearances on Love, Boat, Laveme and Shirley, Fantasy Island, Policewoman, Dick Clark's Great American Sing-Along and The Beverly Hillbillies series, 1 "Louis Nye's brilliant. to continuing' in her position as co-president, a role previously shared with Shirlie Levitin.

There is, however, no consensus on what particular prescription Would be most effective to prevent the plan from dying. After an emergency meeting last week of the Conference of Presidents of Major American-Jewish Organizations, Chairman Seymour Reich issued a statement reiterating support for the initiative and calling on Israel to "do whatever is necessary" to preserve the plan. But the statement steers clear of criticizing or putting pressure on either the Likud or Labor parties. There was no mention of the conditions placed on the peace plan last week by the Likud Central Committee,or of the Labor Executive's decision to - recommend withdrawing- from the national unity government in protest of those conditions. ' "Regardless of what our views are on the actions of Likud last week' or Labor this week, we agree that the peace initiative must move forward," said Albert Cher- nin, executive vice chairman of the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council, who attended the meeting. The statement's approach AIPAC Chairman To Speak At August 1 Dinner Meeting On Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 6:30 p.m. Jeannie and Jay Schottenstein will host a dinner and champagne dessert reception for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) at their home. This eyent will include a confidential and up-to-the- minute briefing about the latest developments in the U.S.-Israel relationship, as presented by the featured speaker Robert H. Asher; the chairman of the Board of AIPAC. , Asher is recognized as one of the most politically active* American Jews. Since 1982 he has devoted all of his energies to activities on behalf of the Jewish people. A past president of AIPAC, he travels extensively for the organization. He recently returned from Israel where he, along with several other AIPAC officers, met with Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir as well as other top Israeli officials. He obtained an insider's perspective of the peace process, on which he will be focusing his-remarks at this event. AIPAC has been cited by The-New York Times as the "most effective and powerful foreign policy lobby iir Washington." It is the only American organization registered to lobby Congress on legislation affecting terael. In addition to lobbying Congress for foreign aid, AIPAC is also actively involved in the fight to stop the sale of America's most sophisticated weaponry to countries , that are not at peace with Israel. Because AIPAC is supported solely by the contributions of its membership, the dinner and reception are dedicated to generating support for AIPAC's work as the pro-Israel lobby. A minimum commitment to AIPAC L (CONTINUED! QNPi\G,£. 4) differs from actions reportedly taken by the Bush administration, which is said to have sent diplomatic messages to Israel urging the Labor Party to remain in the national unity government. The conference took a more neutral position, partly because it said it would not interfere in Israeli party politics, according to Malcolm Hoenlein, the conference's executive director. But another reason was that member organizations were "deeply divided," according to one Source within the conference, about whether Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir should be criticized for mortally wounding the peace plan by bowing to the conditions set by Likud hard-liners, or whether Labor should be criticized for threatening to pull out of the government. Some Jewish leaders are taking a stand close to that of -the- Bush administration's,, . asking that Shamir renounce the conditions he agreed to at the Likud meeting in the interests of preserving both the peace plan and the national unity government. Ira Silverman, executive vice president of the American Jewish Committee, sent a letter Tuesday to Shamir, urging the Israeli premier to "reassure the other parties in the government that you will pursue the peace plan without prior constraints imposed by any political power." Officials from the American Jewish Congress also have contacted Israeli government officials, to discuss the issue, according to Henry Siegman, the group's executive director. Earlier in the week, Reich spoke to Israeli officials, reminding them of the im- portance of preserving unity, though he said he stopped short of interfering in Israeli domestic politics. ; Robert Glick Named Chairman Of Federation's Annual Meeting Robert Glick, a member of the Columbus Jewish Federation's Board of Trustees, has been appointed chairman of the 63rd Annual Meeting announced B.
