GROSSMAN - MAin 5355 McKAY'S PACIFIC LINCOLN-MERCURY, INC. Westlake North at Mercer Seattle 9, Washington THE TRANSCRIPT Page Three Grand President of District No. 4 B'nai B'rith In the background of a man who is being hogored for his service to the communKy and his devotion to his people, there always stand the members of his family who make sacrifices in their own way equal to and often greater than the sacrifices he makes. In the case of Sam Tarshis, it is his devoted wife, Emma, and his children, Lawrence and Ann. Their share in this tribute is more than just reflected glory, because they stand side by side with him in his dedicated service. His zeal for serving his community, his country and his people is exceeded only by the devotion of his family, without whose loyalty he could not have carried on his work. Tarshis is listed in "Who's Who in World Jewry," a biographical dictionary of outstanding Jews. Among the awards and honors which Mr. Tarsllis has received and the organizations with which he has been affiliated are the fol- lowing: Distinguished A w a r d from the Jewish National Home for Asthmatic Children, 1956; Na- tional ZOA Award, 1948; National UJA Award, 1950; National JDA Award, 1953; National ADL Award, 1953; Akiba Award, 1948.
