Older Adult Conference Urges
Federations to Back Housing

The Jewish Welfare Federations
in the major cities of the Midwest
were urged to take the lead in
establishing more adequate older
adult housing at the First Midwest
Region Older Adult Conference in
Pewaukee, Wis.
Delegates to the conference re-
solved a series of measures en-
couraging social action to better
the lives of all senior citizens.
Among the local participants
were Mr. and Mrs. David Teitle-
baum. He is president of the Cen-
ter Culture Club and heads the
Senior Citizens housing and public
affairs committees.
The conference also marked the
golden jubilee celebration of the
National Jewish Welfare Board,
which sponsored the event.

PHILADELPHIA (JTA) — The
Philadelphia chapter of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee reported
Monday that "progress in the hiring
and promotion" of Jewish lawyers
in major law of f i c e s has been
achieved in this city in the last five
years.
A survey launched in 1961 had
shown that, of seven large firms
here which had reported no "Jew-
ish involvement," only three are
in that category now. The number
of Jewish attorneys in such firms
has increased from 35 to 46. The
large firms include a total of 585
attorneys.
The survey had been initiated by
the chapter's civil rights and civil
liberties committee, under the co-
chairmanship of Benjamin Lowen-
stein and Isador Kr a n z e 1, and
looked into the hiring practices of
15 law offices known as "Christian"
or predominantly non-Jewish.
It was found, five years ago, that
the seven law offices without "Jew-
ish involvement" each employed
40 or more attorneys. At the time
the survey was started, there had
been complaints about "the gen-
erally acknowledged limited in-
volvement of Jewish persons as as-
sociates and partners in major
Philadelphia law firms over the
years."
The survey, according to the
committee leaders, was under-
taken also as a step in the
group's program to overcome
barriers to the employment of
Jews in management-level posi-
tions in industry and finance lo-
cally. "There is a close relation-
ship," the report noted, between
major law offices in this city and
large corporations."
Factors in the improved situa-
tions, stated the report, are a non-
discrimination resolution adopted
in 1964 by the Philadelphia Bar As-

sociation, efforts in the law schools
in this area, and "the shortage of
highly-qualified personnel." T h e
committee expressly thanked the
local Bar Association leadership,
the three local law schools, and
individual law firms "for their un
derstanding of the problem of dis-
crimination and their efforts to
improve the situation."
The committee noted, however,
that several questions still remain
regarding the issue. Most large
firms that have taken on Jewish as-
sociates, the group stated, "have

hired only one or two" and "pro-
motion to partnership has been
slow." "It is not yet clear," accord-
ing to the group, "that religious
identification has been entirely
abandoned."

tion of the fact that this housing
will be open to all people."
The conference urged that Jew-
ish welfare federations take the
leadership in developing local fin-
ancial sponsorship for such hous-
ing and also resolved to work to-
ward federal programs to subsidize
the rents of older adults whose
rents are in excess of 25 per cent
of their incomes.
In addition, it suggested the re-
duction of local real estate taxes
for older adult homeowners on fix-
ed incomes, favored a 20 per cent
increase in Social Security pay-
ments and moved to campaign for
a program of part-time employment
for older adults in cooperation with

Israel 'Gives $20,000
in Aid to UN in Cyprus

NEW YORK (ZINS)—Israel is
among the countries which partici-
pate in the maintenance of the UN

force in Cyprus.
Its annual contribution of $20,.-
000 seems small when compared
to Am e r i c a' s $18,000,000 and
England's $9,000,000.
However, ranged beside the con-
tributions of other small nations,
it is considerable. Nepal sends
$400, Cambodia, $600, and Leba-
non, $997.
Of the 42 countries maintain-
ing the Cyprus UN force, Israel's
'contribution ranks 23rd. -
