in Jewish. Occupational Patterns

120,000 Algerian Jewish refu-
gees now in France face a pro-
longed period of acute hard-
ship unless large scale meas-
ures are taken to provide them
skills for speedy employment,
according to a report just made
public by ORT, the Organiza-
tion for Rehabilitation through
Training.
ORT is the world-wide voca-
tional training agency for Jews.
Entitled "ORT Yearbook 1963,"
the report was released simul-
taneously by the organization's
headquarters in New York and
Geneva, Switzerland.
The publication announced
that more than 38,000 per-
sons last year received edu-
cational and economic aid in
579 ORT training units.
The ORT programs were con-
ducted in 19 countries, chiefly
Israel, North Africa, Iran, Po-
land and Western Europe. The
report announced the estab-
lishment of a new activity in
Bombay. India "for the purpose
of teaching industrial skills to
youth of the depressed Jewish
community there."
Technical assistance projects
instituted in conjunction with
the U.S. Government are re-
ported. Under terms of agree-
ments with the Agency for In-
ternational Development, offi-
cial foreign aid agency, ORT
has organized technical and
vocational schools in the West
African countries of Guinea
and Mali. The budget for these
projects is given as $1,687,349.
In response to emergency re-
quirements of Algerian Jewish
arrivals, ORT greatly expanded
its training programs for new-
comers in France. The Year-
book notes that new ORT voca-
tional schools were opened in
Marseilles and Toulouse. Emer-
gency courses were organized
in ORT schools in the Paris
area, Lyon and Strasbourg.
Plans for 1963 call for an ac-
celerated growth in all training
services.
According to Yearbook,
500;000 persons in 29 coun-
tries have been served by
ORT since the end _ of the
Second World War.
Rapid growth of vocational
education services in Israel is
reported. "Enrollment in Israel
ORT schools doubled in just
the first three years of the six-
ties," states the report.
The report finds "a historic
transformation" taking place in
the pattern of Jewish occupa-
tions. Interest in "traditional"
occupations of the underprivi-
leged Jew is practically nil
among young people. There are,
for example, only three car-
pentry courses in all of ORT
for such youth and none in tail-
oring.
"They have been replaced by
refrigeration, electronics, en-
gine repair and metal work.
The list of new fields intro-
- duced into the ORT curriculum
over the last decade includes
metallurgy, electronics, tele-
communications, arch itectural
drafting, construction technol-
ogy. Girls abandoned sewing
crafts in favor of secretarial
skills, interior decoration, medi-
cal and industrial laboratory
work."

Seville Hotel Plans
Guests' Entertainment

A summer program of parties
and festivities has been pre-
pared by the Seville Hotel in
Miami Beach. Part of the pro-
gram will highlight weekly pro-
vocative galas, complete with
prizes, decorations and party
props. In addition, guests will
enjoy cocktail parties, get-ac-
quainted socials, outdoor barbe-
cues, and dinner - dance - shows
featuring top talent.
The Seville is situated ideally
at 30th St. and Collins Ave.
and is easily accessible to golf
courses, water skiing, fishing,
boating, nightclubs and the fine
shops at Lincoln Road Mall.

The cost of all ORT activities
in 1962 was . $7,331,592. The
Joint Distribution Committee
allocated $1,885,000 or about 26
percent. Women's American
ORT is credited with the second
largest contribution, totalling
$912,000.
The report notes that more
than half of ORT costs are
met overseas, a considerable
portion within the communities
served.

Report • Israelis Saw
Need for Visit by
Ex-German Minister

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — A
terse official government . com-
munique stated that former
West German Defense Minister
Franz Josef Strauss took leave
of Premier David Ben-Gurion in
Jerusalem. The West German
leader was accompanied by Dep-
uty Defense Minister Shimon
Peres. •
It was also reported that
Strauss would be guest of honor
at a reception given by the De-
fense Ministry. However, just as
his itinerary in Israel has been
kept secret to avoid incidents,
the date and time of the recep-
tion was not announced. It was
expected to be held shortly be-
fore his departure, the time of
which also was not disclosed.
(Upon leaving Israel, Strauss
said he was deeply impressed
by Israel's "initiative and spirit
of sacrifice." He praised Israel's
collective farm program, indus-
tries and technological progress
and said he was grateful that
Israel welcomed him "correctly
and in a friendly way."
But Israeli officials said that
while "friendly" was not exactly
the feeling expressed by most
Israelis for the visiting West
German leader, most Israelis
understood the necessity for
such visits in the developing
Israel-West German relations.)

Pnresee '63 Record
Sale of Israel Bonds

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Dr.
Joseph J. Schwartz, vice-presi-
dent of the Israel Bond Organ-
ization, left for Israel to report
to Finance Minister Levi Eshkol
on the progress of the current
campaign and to confer with
him and other government lead-
ers on plans for 1964, when a
new bond issue will be required
to carry on the financing of the
country's major economic de-
velopment activities.
Prior to his dep a r t u r e,
Schwartz said that, based upon
the results of the first five
months, the 1963 Israel bond
drive is running 15 per cent
ahead of last year. "If the pres-
ent rate of increase is main-
tained during the balance of the
year, it will result in the best
campaign in Israel bond his-
tory," he stated.

B-G Proposes End
to Arab-Israel Arms
Race Under UN Eye

Report Jews Among U.S. Troops
in Saudi Arabia Training Exercises

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion re-
iterated Israel's willingness to
consider general disarmament
for Israel and the neighboring
Arab states under mutual in-
spection even before any inter-
national disarmament went into
effect.
He also said that Israel would
accept United Nations supervi-
sion over disarmament and that
Israel's policy in this respect
was not conditioned on general
world disarmament. He made
the statements in reply to
Shmuel Mikunis, Communist
deputy, who had asked whether
the government would support
the initiative of "other factors"
to establish the Mediterranean
area as a nuclear-free zone.
This was a reference to a pro-
posal made by the Soviet Union
to Mediterranean area countries
two weeks ago which was
promptly branded a propaganda
act by the United States.

NEW YORK (JTA) — Con-
gressman Emanuel Celler, New
York Democrat, speaking over
radio station WMCA, disclosed
that American Jews are now
serving in the U.S. armed forces
in Saudi Arabia which had in
the past insisted on the elimina-
tion of Jews from the American
military base there.
The Congressman quoted as
his authority a letter from
Deputy Secretary of Defense
Roswell L. Gilpatric, stating
that American units engaged in
join military training exercises
with Saudi Arabian troops in-
clude personnel of Jewish faith.

Canadian Conference
Urges Jewish Unity

CALGARY, Canada, (JTA)—
A series of resolutions calling
for the strengthening of the fu-
ture of the Canadian Jewish
community through enlarging
the scope and deepening the
quality of Hebrew education
was adopted here at the close
of the biennial conference of
the Canadian Association for
Hebrew Education and Culture.
The sessions were attended
by community leaders, Hebrew
school principals and board
chairmen from six of the prin
cipal Jewish communities in
Western Canada.
One of the resolutions called
for expanding the plan, inaugu-
rated in Western Canada six
years ago, of recruiting Israeli
teachers for the schools in this
region.
* * *
TORONTO, (JTA)—Delegates
from 13 Jewish communities in
central Canada at an Adult Edu-
cation Institute decided to. cre-
ate a. forum for an exchange of
experiences and for cooperation
in starting a variety of educa-
tion programs in the communi-
ties.

N. Y. Apparel Manufacturer
Will Help Underwrite Cost of
Brandeis Biology Building
Charles G. Bassine, apparel
industry executive of Great
Neck L,. I., has given $1 million
toward the cost of constructing
a biology building in Brandeis
University's proposed new sci-
ence complex.
The building will house the
entire research activities of the
university's biology department
and will consist of laboratories
and related facilities for use by
the staff, undergraduate and
graduate students.
It will be part of a Science
quadrangle that will include
buildings primarily for research
in biology, chemistry, mathe-
matics and physics, grouped
around a plaza that will form
the roof of a science library
and lecture-demonstration audi-
torium.

(In Washington, U.S. official
sources voiced regret that Gil-
patric's "private letter" was
publicized. These sources termed
the publicity "premature, un-
fortunate and ill-advised." It
was pointed out that the sensi-
tive agreement was reached,
with intervention on a White
House level, and the need for
avoidance of publicity was
known to responsible persons in
and out of the government for
several weeks. The Administra-
tion has been striving quietly
behind the scenes to end Arab
discrimination against Amer-
icans of Jewish faith.)

Against 'Gradualism'

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The

failure."

issue of our time — closing the
civil rights gap between what
the Constitution promises and
the way millions of Americans
live."
