"Otte Wallish (1903–1977) was an emigre to Israel who established himself as a graphic designer and contributed to the symbolic self-representation of the Jewish state . In 1936, Wallish set up a design studio in a building in Nahalat Binyamin, Tel Aviv, that had been chosen as a national landmark. His design studio doubled as a kind of front for SHA'I, the Haganah's secret service . Wallish was responsible for the calligraphy and design of the scroll for Israel's Declaration of Independence. In addition, Walisch handled the preparation of the exhibit hall in which the State's Independence was announced. In 1948, too, Wallish took the lead in designing Israel's first postage stamps. He chose a design based on ancient coins, found in archaeological research on the First Jewish-Roman War and the Bar Kochba Revolt . Wallish continued to be a leading designer of Israeli stamps . Israel's first coins were designed from a proposal submitted by Israel Numismatic Society proposal, put together with Leo Kadman, Hanan Pavel, and Wallish. He also designed paper currency for Israel . Over the years, Wallish also designed posters. For instance, one poster shows the Jewish immigration by ship and another promotes the ZIM shipping line. His posters have been featured in exhibition and the 1997 ‘Selling Zionism’ exhibit at the Israel Museum. In 2006, a Wallish poster was shown at ‘The New Hebrews: 100 Years of Art in Israel’ exhibit, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin .

The textblock is gently toned, clean, bright, and unmarked. The first time we meet Harry Morgan, he is sitting in a Havana bar watching a gun battle raging out in the street. After seeing a Cuban get his head blown off with a Luger, Morgan reacts with typical Hemingway understatement: "I took a quick one out of the first bottle I saw open and I couldn't tell you yet what it was. The whole thing made me feel pretty bad." Still feeling bad, Harry heads out in his boat on a charter fishing expedition for which he is later stiffed by the client. With not even enough money to fill his gas tanks, he is forced to agree to smuggle some illegal Chinese for the mysterious Mr. Sing. From there it's just a small step to carrying liquor--a disastrous run that ends when Harry loses an arm and his boat. Once Harry gets mixed up in the brewing Cuban revolution, however, even those losses seem small compared to what's at stake now: his very life. -Amazon.

        Truman, who began playing the piano when he was ten, writes his future Treasury Secretary John Snyder to tell his 11-year-old daughter Drucie “about the Chopin waltz, Opus #42. It will be quite some time before she can play it but there is a pretty easy waltz over in the middle of it that she can play…”

      Washington, D.C., November 4, 1937. 8" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed “Harry” as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8” x 10.5”. On watermarked Senate stationery, Washington, D.C., November 4, 1937. To John W. Snyder, Manager, Reconstruction Finance Corporation, St. Louis. Four file holes in upper margin. Fine Condition.In full, “Appreciate yours of the Third very much, and you can rest assured I am not running a race with the Governor, and I am not right sure I am on the right track if the Post-Dispatch says I am.” The “St. Louis Post-Dispatch” was an outspoken critic of Truman, associating him with Kansas City Boss Tom Pendergast’s political machine and constantly attacking his integrity. During the Truman presidency, the newspaper was one of his most outspoken critics.Truman continues, “I wrote to the Commanding General of the Seventh Corps Area regarding J.K. and I believe it would be a good plan for him to do the same thing. I have not had a reply from the General as yet which makes me believe he is making an effort to accomodate me.” J.K. was James K. Vardaman, Jr., son and namesake of the late Mississippi Governor and U.S. Senator. J.K. served in both the Field Artillery and the Army Reserves with Truman who later appointed him his first Naval Aide to the President (1945-1946).Truman then writes, “I sent Drucie, some music the other day from Richmond. You tell her if she will play the theme to that Sonata and the first and fourth variations and wind up with the theme again she will have a very pretty piece. That Sonata has been changed from No. 9 to No. 16, and I had a heck of a time trying to find it because the publishers had changed the number. I told her about the Chopin waltz, Opus #42. It will be quite some time before she can play it but there is a pretty easy waltz over in the middle of it that she can play. Please remember me to Mrs. Snyder.” The Snyders’ 11-year-old daughter Drucie and Truman’s 13-year-old daughter Margaret were close friends; they later were bridesmaids at each other’s wedding.According to the Truman Library, “One youngster who never needed to be forced to practice his piano lessons was Harry Truman. He used to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning to practice for two hours. When he became a man, music remained his first passion after politics, and he often said that if he had been a good pianist he never would have become President. ‘I missed being a musician,’ he said, ‘and the real and only reason I missed being one is because I wasn't good enough. His mother became his first teacher when he was about 10. She sent him for a short time to a neighborhood teacher and then to Mrs. E. C. White, a Kansas City teacher who had studied under Theodore Leschetitzky, the renowned European master. Lifelong friend Charlie Ross said, ‘He didn't lack spunk when he braved the jeers of the boys to go regularly to his music teacher, carrying his music roll.’ At the age of 15 he suddenly quit taking piano lessons, to the distress of his mother and Mrs. White, who had visions of him as a concert pianist, but Harry realized he wasn't good enough for that.“His favorite composers were Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin, and he liked the music of Florodora, Strauss waltzes, Gershwin and Debussy. In October, 1945, at a county fair in Caruthersville, Missouri, Truman played the piano for a group of Methodist Women and winked at them as he said, ""When I played this, Stalin signed the Potsdam Agreement.’” John W. Snyder’s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a Jackson County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. When Lt. Col. Truman was promoted to Colonel, Major Snyder was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of Col. Truman’s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder was later Assistant to the Director of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (1940-1944) and served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953)."

        Heavily annotated typed Letter to the Editor of the 'News Chronicle' signed by several members including the above, (H. G., 1866-1946, Novelist), Bertrand RUSSELL (3rd Earl, 1872-1970, Philosopher & Mathematician, Nobel Prize Winner), Julian HUXLEY (1887-1975, Zoologist & Philosopher), Sir Basil Edward PETO, (1st Baronet, 1862-1945, Unionist Politician, Chairman of the Society) and Sir Norman Angell (1872-1967, Lecturer, Author and Labour MP)

      1937 - about a film sponsored by the Society which has been censored by the London County Council, It starts that "As long ago as 1923, the report of the 'Trevethin Committee on Venereal Disease' was published by the ministry of Health, the findings . were definitely favourable to the policy of the education of the public in scientific methods of Prevention, but not only has nothing been done . the only organisation working for the diffusion of such knowledge, has met with unremitting hostility ." they ask the editor to bring public notice to "a striking instance of this . This Society is sponsoring a film entitled 'The Price of Ignorance' and application was made to the L.C.C. for authority to exhibit it . This authority was granted subject to the excision of all reference to the possibility of Prevention, so that those seeing the film, (now showing at the Rialto, Coventry St.) are not permitted to learn that these diseases can be prevented, and even the address of the Society has been deleted. This is, we suggest, a particularly harmful kind of censorship, and one entirely out of keeping with contemporary thought .", 1 side A4, National Society of the Prevention of Venereal Disease headed paper, London, 13th December The pencil markings appear to be the editor's notes relating to how the letter should be published and the order in which the signatures should appear.
