    letters from distracted men and women letters from troubled boys and girls barely out of childhood asking for advice and consolation I know that many believe only stupid people turn to an advice giver said Mr Lutsky but that I have learned is a popular conception and like most popular conceptions it is far from accurate Rabbis doctors teachers business men housewives students carpenters musicians men and women of every occupation representing every strata of wealth and social position have written to me and have had personal interviews Tragedy knows no barriers of money or intellectual capacity A person in need of comfort is being only human when he goes where he can get it Well Fitted for Role A life crowded with experiences which have held him in the depths of despair and disappointment or sent him soaring with enthusiasm and success have well fitted The Jewish Philosopher to the role of advice giver Coming to this country from southern Russia at the age of five he attended New York public schools simultaneously studying at Hebrew school Between the ages of 11 and 16 he travelled about the eastern part of the country as a boy cantor Those were days of glorious adventure for young Lutsky Even while a student in high school he began to display academic and journalistic tendencies for at that time he was editor of a Jewish weekly In the following years he was associated in both business and editorial capacities with the Forward and the Day in New York the Jewish World in Philadelphia and of the English publications the Philadelphia Daily News and the Atlantic City News He was engaged many years as a social worker and was executive secretary of the Federation of Ukranian Jews an organization which sent him as its representative to carry on relief activities after the war He was also field secretary for the American Jewish Congress and travelled all over this country uniting various Jewish groups Mr Lutsky s first radio experience was in Atlantic City with Station WPG That was eight years ago With the program called Yisrolikel and His Musical Companions he was the first to present a Jewish program in English and was one of the first to dramatize the commercial patter of a broadcast After several years he went to New York to continue his radio work in the wider field presented there At the early end of middle age short in stature simple in manner undistinguished in appearance quick witted possessing vast knowledge a living refutation of the argument that it is impossible to obtain a good Jewish education in this country Mr Lutsky makes no pretense of being a paragon of virtue Associates and friends of earlier days find him unchanged from the prankish fun loving reporter who enjoyed and still enjoys a harmless game of pinochle or smoked and still smokes one cigar after another Quite unashamedly he recalls a day not many years ago when a few of his
