JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Israeli
officials here deflated as `!gross

report, claiming that the Arab
boycott inflicted very severe
damage on the Israeli , economy
during 1960.
The League report claimed
that, because of th

300 compani

196

In all, 56 local, national and
overseas agencies will share the
contributions of Detroiters to
the Allied Jewish Campaign.

There are 130,000 men,
women and children in farm
settlements who are barely
able to maintain themselves
because funds are lacking to
supply them With the essen-
tials of successful farming.
They need equipment, live-
stock, water and almost
everything else a farmer
would ask for. Their success
is a must in a nation whose
economy is based on agricul-
ture to the great extent that
it is in Israel.

A blight on Israel's develop-
ment is her colonies of shacks
that were hastily thrown up to
put roofs over the heads of new-
corners when immigration was
at its peak. At one time 250,000
Jews lived in these slums. Their
number now has been reduced
to 40,000 but means must be
found quickly to provide decent
housing for them.
Immigration continues at a
rate of about 30,000 a year.
Most of these persons are refu-
gees who leave their homes
with nothing. They need total
support from the time of their
departure until they can estab-
lish themselves in the new land.
Because Israel. has adhered
rigidly to the moral principle
that it must take in all Jewish
immigrants who needed homes,
regardless of their physical or
mental fitness, the country has
115,000 handicapped persons
who are helped by United Jew-
ish Appeal funds. Among them
are 37,000 who are served by
the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee's MALBEN program for re-
habilitating t h e handicapped
and proyiding other social serv-
ices.
