PLAIN TALK
(Continued from Page 1)
She thought maybe Alaska.
Even at that moment a gentle
man in a fur parka injected him
self into our living room. He left
snow tracks in the rug.
"I." he said, “am from Alaska. I
am the president of the Yukon
League Opposed to Anti-Semit
ism. Our purpose is to propagate
good will among the Eskimos up
the Arctic circle. Os course, we
need the money."
I went on this way all through
the night. All Israel was pluck
ing at my coat tails. Between
nightmares I took more sedatives,
occasionally a cup of warm milk.
Yet there occurred also an in
cident flattering to my vanity. I
had been an obscure man in the
Jewish fold of our town. My wife
frequently had said that my tux
would be eaten up by moths, con
sidering how little I used it.
By this she meant reproachfully
to say that I am never invited to
sit at the speakers’ table where
tuxes are worn at the Jewish af
fairs ... “I don’t see w T hy you
ever bought that tux.” she said
frequently.
But now. as a man in the
money. ($150,000 worth) I was in
demand. I came happily aware of
this when from among the door
bell ringers there appeared a
committee from the Anshe Gi
borim Burial Society.
“We have come,” the chairman
explained, “not to ask anything of
you but only to honor you. We
should like to have you preside
at our grand annual dinner at the
Pavilion Caprice Hotel. That
night we are starting our cam
paign to raise money to buy deep
er and better graves.”
At this my wife couldn't help
exclaiming: "Now you can wear
your tux!"
Our pleasant contemplation of
this was interrupted by uproar
ouside. I flung open the door . . .
“What’s all this?” . . . Out of the
tumult I gathered there was a

furious debate going on between
the representatives of organiza
tions as to which of them was bet
ter entitled to my money. They
were the Friendly Society to En
courage Good Will Among Hotel
Clerks Toward Jewish Travelers;
the Society Against Saying Some
of My Best Friends Are Jews; the
Association to Promote Love for
Jews in College Fraternities.
Oh. my $150,000 was fomenting
disunity in Jewry! Divided Jewry
would fall into fragments and
Jewish history would put the
guilt on me. Against this prospect
I slammed the door shut with a
loud, frightened bang. The sound
awakened me: the early dawn of
summer was in the room.
I went to the telephone and dis
patched a telegram to Mr. Hillel
at his vacation place; “Please take
back your $150,000.”
EGYPT'S PROPOSAL ON SUEZ
ACCEPTABLE TO ISRAEL BUT
NOT TO BRITAIN
LONDON, (JTA) Egypt was
prepared to allow oil cargoes to
pass through the Suez Canal to
the Haifa refineries on conditions
acceptable to Israel, according to
a report received here this week,
but Britain refused to go along.
The report stated that Britain in
sisted that the matter has become
one of principle and suggested
that further postponement of
presentation to the United Na
tions Security Council of its reso
lution calling for an end to the
Suez blockade is undesirable.

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
ISRAEL PREMIER DEDICATES
LARGE LIBRARY PRESENTED
BY DETROIT FAMILY
TEL AVIV, (JTA) Premier
David Ben-Gurion last week-end
dedicated a new library here, the
gift of Morris and Emma Shaver,
of Detroit, Mich. The new library.
Bet Berl, includes 20,000 volumes
from the library of the late Dr.
A. H. Friedlander, Hebrew edu
cator and scholar, of Cleveland.
In his speech opening the new
library, Mr. Ben-Gurion said that
prior to the establishment of the
Jewish state, the Diaspora had
given and Israel had received.
Now, however, he said, since the
birth of Israel, the situation had
been reversed. Israel’s war of lib
eration, he said, had raised the
stature of American Jewry. Israel,
he added, had made three gifts
to the Jews of America—a sense
of pride, a consciousness that they
could become “unhypenated”
Jews, and a link with their own
old country such as all Americans
have.
