After all, Mr. O'Neil told
him the neighborhood was

from Sam Harper who heard
it from Thelma Higgins who
picked it up from a lady she
drives to work.

So naturally, Charlie had
to dust off his faithful old
shotgun, buy a. couple hun-
dred rounds of ammo and
practice that hipshot he
learned in the army back in
'44. Just in case the local
authorities can't handle
things.

Charlie means well. He's

Impoverished Jews Subject of Study
by Philadelphia Vocatilnal Service

PHILADELPHIA (JTA) — Phil-
adelphia unemployed Jews seeking
4 jobs through the Jewish Employ-
ment and Vocational Service are
just as poor as other Americans
i for whom anti-poverty programs
have been established, two officials
of the agency reported.
Citing a study of the agency's
caseload. President Donald S.
Cohan said that the Jewish jobless
were imooverished socially and
personally as well as economically.
He said that in many ways such
- 1 Jews resem'ile other Americans
nrhosc earnings are below the
$3.000 annual income which de-
fines the floor by governmental'
yardsticks.
He said that while the study I
concerned only Jews actively try-
ing to find jobs, it appeared that
many more persons than those
who come to agencies of the Fed-1
eration of Jewish Agencies criti-
cally need help.
Dr. Saul S. Leshner, JEVS exec-
utive director. reported that the
study • covered a sample of 134
Jewish men and women, represent-
ing a total active Jewish caseload
of more than 700 persons. The
sample included 76 men and 58
women. ranging in age from 17 to
over 65 years.
About half were under 20. About
two-thirds of the Jewish job-seek-
ers had incomes in the previous
year below . $2,600. One in five
earned between $2,600 and $4,000
and one in _six had an' annual in-
come of $4,000 or more.
Since only 17 per cent were
under 20 and could be presumed to
be relatively new to the labor
force. it was evident that most
of the jobless Jews had earned
incomes well below the poverty
line Dr. Leshner noted. He added
that 37 per cent were getting
direct financial help from govern.
mental or family sources.
In periods of almost full em-
ployment, such as the present,
jobless i'ersons are usually in-
dividuals with severe problems,
except for a few who are tem-
porarily out of work. About
six out of ten had disabilities
classified as nrimarily emotional,
but they overlapped with the ap-
proximately four of 10 who had
proble ms related to aging or
physical conditions.
Limited education was found 'to

be a factor among poor Jews, as
with the poOr generally. Only half
of the job-seekers were considered
highly motivated for work. The
other half were judged to be gen-
erally anathetic, persons who felt
deleatel or at best only partially
motivated to get a job. Only one
in fo'ir , vas married and 70 per
cent "ere living with other family
memi, ers.
Dr. Leshner commented that "we
know very little about the im-
poveri-hed Jews whose needs are
not nr:marily vocational, or about
those v ho do not apply to federa-
tion a!•encies. But we 'can guess,
from the large numbers of pre-
viouslr unknown individuals who
come 9. Bc h month to the JEVS in
desrerate circumstances that there
must e a great many more who
have never come for help."
He added that the conditions of
impoverishment in spirit as well
as economically, which / is typical
of the poor and that the social de-
Tendency among other minority
groins which stems from exclu-
sion, rejection and chronic failure
"are o-arative in the Jewish popu-
lation as well." However. he de-
clared. "it Seems apparent that —
in the case of JEVS clients. at
least — vocational handicaps under-
ly ti. eir separation from the main-
st•eam of the self-respecting, self-
supporting members of society."
' The JEVS president joined in
an earlier appeal by Dr. Leshner
to Jewish philanthropic leaders to
give more effort to find the ap-
parentl" large numbers who com-
prise • C'e "Jewish poor" and to
direct more social welfare funds
toward helping them.
