Community Gives Food ,00enerously for Needy The Jewish (and non-Jewish) community opened its heart in response to the request for help for those families who were hungry and living under the subsistance level. The food collection drive organized by the Washington Council of B'nai B'rith Lodges on Sunday, November 21st, with three depots, North, South and East brought out an outpouring of canned food and paper goods, estimated at $I000 and checks (still coming) of over $300. This will enable the Jewish Family and Child Service to have a backstop of food and funds for those families who need this. The food is stored at Brother Joe Landau's Universal Motor Club facilities. The Cascade, Overlake and Seattle B'nai B'rith lodge" manned the three collection' depots. Cascade Lodge and its Evergreen BBYO AZA Chapter, sent carloads of people to its members' homes, netting the lion's share of the food. While many organizations and Synagogues have collection depots, those who responded to this specific project were the Sephardic Sisterhood and the Jewish Federation and Council's Womens' Division. There will be another collec- tion day set as necessitated by the needs of the Jewish hungry and needy. Seattle B'nai B'rith stands ready to organize, cen- tralize and store food, on behalf of the Jewish Community. Lou Weisman is food collection chairman.

Dr. Charles Fine Long Active in Federation (Continued From Page 1) means he teaches part rather than full time. The physician is a member of the National and Internation- al Society for Infertility and a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. His field is Obstetrics and Gynecology. In response to a question on how many babies he had brought into this world he replied that he stopped counting after 5,000 but it's somewhere betWeen that figure and 6,000. Dr. Fine said that the goal for this year's campaign is a realistic $1,500,000. He commented that Seattle and vicinity is a $2,000,000 community but the figure would have to be reached in stages. Dr. Fine expressed overall optimism over the current campaign and said that the ded- icated team of individuals who worked so hard and successfully last year are working again, on behalf of the 1972 campaign. He expressed the hope that the number participating in the campaign will be greater this year and that the medium and large givers this year will par- ticipate further by contacting others. He said in past cam- paigns there has "just not been enough people involved and many more are needed. Dr. Fine recalled that some of his earliest memories as a boy in Toronto were of his mother who was a humanitarian and an activist in social action groups. His father was concerned and involved and spent so much money helping Jewish refugees who came to Canada that he died a poor man. His mother, now over 90, lives in the East- ern portion of the United States. Dr. Fine is married and the father of two children and has a like number of grandchildren. His children are Mrs. Jy Friedman who has two of t- springs and Jeffrey Fine who is studying for a Master's Degree in Biology. An inspiration to him during his career has been his wife the former Reeva Lillian Baker of Toronto. She has also been extremely active in Jewish Community affairs having served as Chair- man of the Women's Committee for Bonds in 1965 and is an ac- tive member of the Women's Division. Mrs. Fine has served on many special committees of the Women's Di.vis|oq and is t!r-,, rently a member of the Pace- setters. Looking at the Jewish Com- munity at home and abroad Dr. Fine said his major concerns were the preservation of Israel as a viable and sovereign State, the preservation of Jewish life in America and abroad, mainte- nance of Jewish institutions, the quality of Jewish life in Ameri- ca, the concerns of youth and Jewish education, the needs of the Jewish poor and problem of the aged of the Jewish commun- ity. His major immediate over- riding concern is the campaign of the Jewish Federation and Council and the hope and pray- er that the so badly needed funds for Israel and supported Jewish agencies in the Seattle area will become available. THE JEWISH TRANSCRIPT PAGE 3 Assassination (Continued from Page 1) Jordan this year and a marked subsidence of terrorist activities against Israel from Jordanian soil. Tal was in Cairo at the head of Jordan's delegation to the Arab States' Defense Council, a meeting attended by the foreign and defense ministers and chiefs of staff of the Arab states. He was gunned down outside the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Cairo despite the presence of 15 Jordanian securi- ty men in his party. His assailants were reported- ly seized by Egyptian police. Despite the fact that they are Palestinians, it is likely that Jordan will hold Egypt, the host country, responsible for its Premier's death, observers here said. Another Jordanian Pre- mier, Haza el Majali, was mur- dered several years ago by Egyptian agents during a period of tension between Jordan and Egypt.
