ATONEMENT
We were wondering if it
could be at all possible for
Nations to Atone for their sins
as individuals do.
A case in point comes to
mind with the recent news
dispatch from Tel-Aviv. It tells
the story of David Blumental,
an employee of the Israeli Le-
gation in Bucharest, Rumania.
David was found guilty of
what the Rumanians called
“Military Espionage. ” He was
also found guilty of trying to
cross the border illegally.
David’s wife was pregnant.
She knew what Iron Cur-
tain countries would do. And
it harried her. Torment and
anguish chilled her bones.
Bast week Mrs. Blumental
sat ip a Bucharest courtroom
-to hear her husband’s sen-
tepee. Verdict: 15 years im-
prisonment for David Blumen-
tal. Aftermath: Mrs. Blumen-
tal immediately collasped. Her
pregnancy aborted. She lost
her baby within a matter of
hours.
And we say, again, it would
(be a good thing if Nations
atoned as individuals do.
It would be a very good
thing, indeed.
jMgybe the world would
finally get around to beat their
cannon into plows. . .maybe
man could truly look up at the
sun with peace of mind, and
joy of heart. . .yes, it would be
good if nations would Atone. . .
Our best for a happy holi-
day to all.

With a full and talented cast,
and with rehearsals reaching
the ‘finishing t o u c h e s’ the
Bhiai B’rith Little Theatre
prepares last minute details for
the gala opening night of the
season’s first offering, ‘The
Man Who Came To Dinner!
This Promises to start the sea-
son off with a delightful and
entertaining comedy. The play
written by Moss Hart and
George Kaufman was a mo-
mentous success on Broadway
and later as a moyie.
Its featured character
‘Sheridan Whiteside’ was a per-
fect vehicle for Monty Wooley
and presents a part that is a
challenge to any character
actor. Fran Prinz tackles this
role in a manner that would
humble even a professional.
Actually almost every role
calls for a character actor and
Lucille Schwartz as Director
of the play has brought out of
her cast talents that will sur-
prise the first nighters.
Supporting Fran in the Title
Role are some of the Little
Theatre’s seasoned regulars:
F ranees Goldstein, J. B.
Daiches, Joy Spiegel, Jack
Freling, Joe Shanblum, and
Herb Slatkin. Mixed with these
and chosen because of popular
demand and promise shown in
past plays are Lucille Cohen,
Peggy Davis, Norm Frankrich,
and Inez Miller. To add the
spice of new blood and talent
are Burton Davis, Ann Li dell,
Hilda Lou Cohen, Maxine
Goldstein, Pete and Ann Roth,
Dr. Harry Teter, Buddy Sil-
verberg and Jerry Wolens.
The problems presented in
designing and building a huge
set including a spacious and
elegant living room with a
sumptuous curved staircase on
