BY AL SEGAL BIDS FOR PURCHASE OP HEBREW SCHOOL SITE TO BE ACTED UPON The Board of Directors of Co¬ lumbus Hebrew School will con¬ sider and act upon offers to pur¬ chase the site of the school's previous location at 558 E.

It looks like happier times on the way for oppressed Jews; and now what is to become of the rest of us? Where are we going when the doorbell ringers no longer call in desperate urgency to remirid us of Jews who need our help, and how much will we give for them? Thanks to these annual visitors, many of us have been kept consciously Jewish these many years. When one has quite for¬ gotten his Jewlshness, his doorbell rings and at the door stands that guy he remembers froni the last drive..."How much are you going to give this time, sir?".. .Oh yes! His JewLshness Comes baek to him. He signs a pledge.. ."Thanks", says the solicitor. "Will be seeing you next year". It is .sad to reflect that Jewish life for many in America has heen a matter of signing checks for drives or digging down and pulling out a $10 bill. What will happen to us as .lews when the bell-ringers no longer have to impinge so assiduously on our consciences? It must come to that eventu¬ ally now that the skies seem to be clearing for Jews in the dark¬ er places of the world. Palestine is establLshed as the Republic of Israel. The Jews of Israel have earned it by blood, sweat, tears and their work in the fields, and the conscience of the world will not let them be robbed of it. Some 10,000 of the displaced are moving into Israel every month. I It remains our duty lo give all'we can that these peo¬ ple may be settled there. But in due time—let's say ten years —large numbers of these wan¬ derers wiil have been establish¬ ed in the new land and Israel, by' taxation, will be self-support¬ ing. Others are finding refuge in the U. S. and elsewhere around the world. It is getting better for the oppressed. it must come to pass that drive solicitors no longer will be atj our doors in search bf hun- di'eds of millions in a year. True, they will continue to come around for funds for local and national Jewish causes; that must go on for good. But the heavy pressure that made many Jews feel Jewish during these many years will be off. Then what? By what shall we sur¬ vive? That problem still Is some years off but why not take hold of It now? Why not face now the question that wiil so tragic¬ ally arise when Jews no longer have the compulsion of vast (Continued on I'sge 01 MIZRACHI EOiBX^TIONS Mr. Louis Mellman was nani- ed president of the Men's Miz¬ rachi Zionist organization at the election of officers held Nov. 27 at Ahavath Sholom synagogue.

Hadassah Celelarates 20th ^ Annual Donor Dinner Sunday The Jewish community of Columbus well remembers and still raves about the memorable Hadas.sah Donor Dinner held last December.
