Page Eight CRITIC AT eH[JME Television at Its THE TRANSC:IPT Commun,ty Center News "Just Ask," is the theme for the coming Jewish Community Center An hour-long filmed report from Israel, in which Drew Pearson served as guide and narrator seen on NBC-TV last Sunday, proved to be a memorable and thrilling experience. Those who were not fortunate enough to see this program, di- rected and produced by citizens of Israel, will be pleased to know that the film will be distributed to theatres, and may also be made available for showing by the United Jewish Appeal. The New York Times stas that this film has already been booked by a ttmatre in Washington, D. C. It is to be hoped that some of the people who make our State Department policy will see it. Drew Pearson guided the viewer on a tour of the people and the problems of Israel, during the last months of 1956. With him, we explored the questions of war and peace, saw Israel's reclamation of the desert, its freedom of religion, its outstanding men of science, of medicine and of agriculture. We watched an interview with David Ben-Gurion; we thrilled with recognition as a young engineer spoke of his work in Solar energy, to learn that he was known to the young men from Seattle who served with the Haganah ships who brought refugees to Israel in 1947, and to learn that the brilliant Doctor interviewed had lectured to the team of World Health Or- ganization Doctors and Scientists of which Professor and Mrs. Rich- ard Tyler had been a part. But above all, it was Drew .Pearson's interview with an unnamed Czechoslovakian newcomer to Israel, which was the highlight of 'the whole program. When asked if she did not find life in Israel difficult, she answered Pearson in halting English: "All place I stranger, here I no stranger. This is my house--very nice place, very nice place." r What better description could we have of what Israel means to tile thousands of Jews who have found a home in Israel .... An Eventful Week The telephone hook-up arranged this past week by the Israel Bond Organization was dramatic and timely. Ambassador Abba Eban and Foreign Minister Golda Meier spoke to meetings arranged throughout the country to hear their message of Israel's position in the world today, and the help that she needs at the critical period. Wtmt was most impressive to tiffs listener was the fact that both Ebaa and Golda Meier spoke with enthusiasm of the fact that Israel could look forward in 1957 to an emigration of 100,000 Jews from Egypt, Hungary and other Iron Curtain countries, as well as from Rrorth Africa. All they were asking from us was investment in the people and the land. The playing of Ernst Bloch's "Suite for Viola and Orchestra," at the last Seattle Symphony Concert, wth Milton Katims as soloist and Henry Sicgl conducting was one of the highlights of the week. In addition to the opportunity of hearing for the first time a great work by one of the most original of modern composers one also heard a combination of three outstanding musical talents, all mem- bers of the Jewish faithKatims, acknowledged throughout the mus- ical world as one of the great violists, as well as a brilliant con- ductor; Siegl, the new concert-master of the Symphony, making his first appearance in Seattle as a conductor; and Bloch, who has al- ways.acknowledged the debt that his music owes to the' Hebrew strain, brought us great music. One can safely speak of Ernest Bloch a a Jewish composer, not just a composer who happens to be Jewish. Raanan Sivan, Consul General of Israel for the Western States, speaking to the Federated Fund last Monday was factual and unemo- tional. But his talk carried that much more impact because of its very matter of factness. He spoke of the provoction to which Israel was subjected beforjp the Sinai attack and he said That either condemnation or sanctions against Israel would represent a double standard of morality, one for Egypt and one ,for Israel." membership campaign, which opens with the kick-off at the "Center Salute," Open House on Thursday, February 21, at 8:30 p.m. at the Center, 1916 Fourth Ave., it was announced today by Dr. Norman W.

I l Praise for Israel From Council of Judaism Head JERUSALEM, (JTA)--Lessing Rosenwald praised Israel and the accomplishments of its people after completing a week's tour of the country, but insisted that he was still opposed to Zionism.
