Among Catholic students, 74 per
cent said they frequently dated
persons of other religions, com-
pared with 60 per cent of Protes-
tant student's and 33 per cent -of
Jewish students.
Seventy-five per cent of all the -
students surveyed reported they in-
terdated at least occasionally. At
the same time, however, only 35
per cent considered it likely that
they would marry someone of an-
other faith. Again, Catholic stu-
dents were found to be most re-
ceptive to the idea of intermar-
raige: 66 per cent of the Catholics
covered in the study considered it
likely that they would marry out-
side their religion, against 46 per
cent of the Protestant students and
15 per cent of the Jewish students.
A highlight of the study was
the finding that parents and
friends had strong influences on
the students' dating behavior and
marriage plans. In all three re-
ligious groups, students who be-
lieved their parents and friends
would disapprove of their inter-
dating were much less likely to
date outside their religion or to
consider intermarriage.

lines, the study -found. Among
Jewish students, 78 per cent re-
ported such disapproval, compared
with 55 per. cent of Protestant stu-
dents and 46 per cent of Catholics.
The students' response to such
disapproval also shoaled marked
differences. A breakdown by re-
ligious grouping showed that 76 per

Baron Rothschild Urges Reorganization of French Jewish Community

PARIS (JTA) — A proposal for
a change in the organization of the
French Jewish community, trans-
forming the present setup into
something like a board of Jewish
deputies, with a 150-member ex-
ecutive, was made here Monday
by Baron Guy de Rothschild, presi-
dent of the Fonds Social Juif
Unffie. The FSJU, this country's
central- Jewish fund-raising body
for domestic purposes, concluded
its two-day annual conference
Monday, with 500 delegates in
Stressing that the FSJU is no
longer merely a collector and
distributor of funds, but an organ-
izer of "the new community in the
social, cultural, and educational
fields," Baron de Rothschild urged
"the necessity of adapting the
Jewish community" to the reality
of the fact that the "old legalistic
formula" has outlived the times.
He referred to the Jewish Consist-
oire which, since the time of
Napolean, has been the only legal
body representing French Jewry.
The new organization, he said,

should differentiate between
religious bodies and Jewish non-
religious groupings, and should
act as a "parliament" for the
entire French Jewish community.
The conference heard a report
showing that, in 1964, the FSJU
distributed more than $3,000,000.
Of that total, the report showed,
$1,650,000 was collected from
16,000 French Jews. The remainder
came from various other sources,
chiefly from the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee which
provides about 40 per cent of the

FSJU's budget
, A large part of the budget, it
was reported, was allocated to aid
the . many thousands of Jewish
refugees who came to France from
North Africa.

LONDON—More than 2,000 Jew-
ish craftsmen are 'organized in the
17 artisan cooperatives sponsored
by the Polish Jewish and Cultural
Association of Poland, according
to reports received here from the
Polish capital.
At a national conference of the
Jewish artisan cooperatives in
Warsaw, it was also reported that
a large number of Polish Jewish
women work full or part time for
the cooperatives and by so doing
are able to supplement their fam-
ilies' incomes. Most of the mem-
bers of the cooperatives are obliged
to be members of the Polish Jew-
ish and Cultural Association.
