HARRY COWAN DONATES 14TH PINT OF BLOOD Plain Talk STORY WITHOUT END BT AL SEGAL I had jusl read "Story Without End," a new book, "An In¬ formal History of the Jewish People," as the title page says. It was just after dinner and dusk was falling. As is my practice after dinner, toward the purpose of aiding digestion, I had com¬ posed myself In the Softest of the chairs in our living'room and took my pipe in hand.- 1 lighted the pipe... But first 1 should tell you sometliing about "Story With¬ out End." It is by Rabbi Solom¬ on Landman of Islah Temple, Kew Gardens, N. Y., imd by Benjamin Efron who formerly was Sabbath school superinten¬ dent In Rabbi Landman's temp¬ le. The book was published by Henry Holt & Co. II had turned out to be as in¬ formal as the title page said it vyas. Scholarly enough, but nol pedantic. The book told the story as If Messrs. Landman and Efron were telling It to me In my own living room Instead of in a book . They hadn't been overawed by any Idea,that they were writing a book for im¬ mortality. ' ' It was a liberal Jew's Jnler- l^elation of Jewish history. In ATTENTION NEWCOMERS TO COLUMBUS The Columbus Jewish houses of worship extend to all newcomers In Columbua a cordial welcome to affiliate themselves with these splen¬ did ¦ Institutions which have been a power for good in our community. Parents and children have found tin? Temple or liynn- gogue . a great moral land splrltMal force for JuditlNm at ItH best.

Schmleg, director of the Red Cross Regional llloOd Ccnler. :)() E. Town St., reports lasl week to be the center's largest week, with rin-l donors presenting them.selves and 310 pints of blood collected Frankiln County. This rl.se in the number of donors was due In. part to In¬ auguration of the second blood- mobile unit which will be u.sed for visits within Franklin Coun¬ ty only. Last week, visits were made to the Naval Air Station, Port Columbus, and the Colum¬ bus Army Depot. Two donations made at the center recently by Jewish people I Cro.ss National Hlood Program are worthy of special comment. | that he is recruiting donors from the Ohio Wh'olesale Furniture Salesmen's .-Xssociation. The follcjwing were donoi^s from the .lewish Community Council who gave a pint of blood during the week of .luly 2(>th: .Maxlne Topper, Seymour Luck¬ off. Eva Stregevsky...lanet Lee¬ man (.Mrs. Milton), lien Izeman and Don Snider. » During the last week those who gave were: Sidney L. Katz, Arthur J. Kobacker, 'Victor Ring¬ er, Mrs. Selma Baker. Albert Belm, Jack 'vVolman and Harry Mellrhan. Have you volunteered YOUR fjervlces yet? .Mrs. Harry Cowon. 117 S'. Slan wood Rd.. maile her llth dona- tkm of blood. Aaron Epstein, rtl2 S.

Mr. Epstein is one of Ihe few donors in Franklin County who ha.s reached the maximum donations to be given by an Individual in a one year period. Another ardent donor at the center was §ldney L. Katz, 160 S. Ardmore Rd. Mr. Katz not only gave a pint of blood, but Is so enthusiastic about the Red COUNCIL WOMEN RESUME AMERICANIZATION CLASSES MONTH EARLIER To meet the needs of families I Marguerita Lpd&rer, who r^ent arriving in Cohimbus weekly ly arrived in Columbuir from from the DP camps of Europe the Council of Jewish Women has resumed AmeMcanlzatlon classe^'thls month ahead of the scheduled September ' opening. This additional month's- .school¬ ing has been made possible through a gift received by Mrs. E. J. Gordon from Mr. and Mrs. Jo.seph Slimmer. The gift was made in tribute 10 Mrs. Summer's mother, Mrs. Hungary, and in appreciation of Mrs. Gordon's work as chairman pt Service to Foreign Born for the Council. The Council has ex¬ pressed Its gratitude to Mrs. Gor¬ don for making the gift availa¬ ble for the Americanization classes' at a time when they are greatly needed. In this way, the newly-arriv¬ ed families, eager lo take their place in the American scene, lo.se no time In learning English, clvl(5S and the history of their new. country. With the opening of the regular public school year In September, the "'Coltlmbus Board of Education will again share responsibility with the Council for the Americanization program. Mrs. Albert Goorey, as\ Council chairman of Americani- . zatlon, has played an Important part In giving assistance to the newly arrived families. Jesus, to whom they gave con¬ siderable attention, the authors saw another Jew who was try¬ ing to point the ethical way of Jewish life. In another time he might have been a Reform rab¬ bi. "Story Without End" gathers It all together In Us lost para¬ graphs; "Jews have lived through times that have seen finish written In the pages of history for other jjeoples. Throughout those periods they kept alive the traditions of their past, taking them along as prec¬ ious baggage whenever history sent them traveling; and (hese traditions held them firmly to¬ gether as a people. "Always (hey developed new patterns of life as historical ftjrces played upon them, just as they are .now creating new forms- of Jewish »llfe lo fit modern soclely» This, too, Is part of the tradJtiori that has kept the Jews alive; for theli' religion and social Ideals, stemming from the Prophets of Israel, were not fixed and Immutable but rath¬ er guides for purposeful living. For this reason Jews will con¬ tinue to live aa long as.miin'a spirit reaches toward the- reali- zailon of the Prophetic ideals of justice, democracy ajid peace." Now 1 can return to niy pipe and the big, soft chair In my living room. My pipe and chair help me out wonderfully In the hour when I am' preparing to write this column. The chair bids rne relax, the capacious mouth of the pipe speaks up with . fair intelligence to the mind whic"h In the hour may (Continaed on Vene 4) Mrs. Simon Rosin to Address B'nai B'rith Women Next Week at Annual Tea-Garden Party; Mrs. Lou Robins Heads Memberships When the B'nai B:j;llh Wo¬ men's chapter hold.sNls ann'Ual tea and garden party next ,Wet"l- nesday afternoon (Aug. 24) In the beautiful gardens of Mrs. B.
