There will be two proposals for
amendment of by-laws, both were
approved by the board of directors
of JFCS at its May 7 meeting. One
amendment would increase the
membership of the board of direc-
tors from 27 to 36, in addition to
past presidents who are automatic-
ally life members of the board.
Another amendment would reduce
the number on the nominating
committee from nine to five board
members. Faudman will present
a summary of the activities of the
agency during the past year.
Mrs. Samuel J. Caplan, presi-
dent of Resettlement Service, will
preside over that agency's meet-
ing. There will be nominations and
election of board members and of-
ficers, and Mrs. Caplan will report
on resettlement activity.
She will report on the increase

in resettlement activities as a
result of the gradual deteriora-
tion of the position of the Jews
in Europe and the increase of
anti-Semitism in many Iron Cur-
tain countries following the six-
day war and after the Soviet in-
vasion of Czechoslovakia. Mrs.
Caplan noted that almost all of
the refugees who have come to
the agency during the past year
have arrived from Poland.

From June 1969 to May 1970, Re-
settlement Service provided finan-
cial assistance, counseling and
other concrete services to 46 fam-
ilies, consisting of 126 individuals.
In a comparable period in the pre-

been an increase in the number of
awards received by Jewish fam-
ilies from the Detroit area during
the past year. From January to
December 1969 these families re-
ceived $150,392 in awards from
the German government.

How Camp Copes
With Drug Users

(Copyright 1970, JTA, Inc.

Officials of a Los Angeles Jew-
ish summer resident camp, faced
with the problem of drug use by
staff members and campers, re-
sponded with a stated and en-
forced ban on all drug use at the
camp and by seeking to make
camp programs so meaningful
that no one at the camp would
want to use drugs.
The problem and its solution
were described by Mike Schle-
singer, program director of Camp
JCA of the Los Angeles Jewish
Centers Association, in a report
in the current issue of "Jewish
Community Center Program Aids,"
a quarterly publication of the Na-
tional Jewish Welfare Board.
He reported that the problem
cropped up intially at the 1965
camp session when camp officials
learned that a few staff members
were using marijuana both in the
camp and on their days off. At
the 1966 camp session, more peo-
ple were noted to be involved in
drug use but camp officials felt
none of the campers had become
The first step was to make the
camp policy on drugs generally
known to the community, the pro-
gram director reported. He said it
was deemed essential that staff,
campers and their parents know
the policy before they came to
camp and so, "in our initial inter-
view with prospective staff mem-
bers," that policy is spelled out.
Staff applicants not in agreement
with that policy are advised not
to seek a camp job. The official
added "we explain to staff mem-
bers the limit on drug use at the
camp, its rationale and the sanc-
tions: immediate dismissal." The
policy also is explained to camp-
ers, both before and after they
arrive. They are told that "drugs
are out at camp and that breaking
this policy means going home. The
problem for campers who use
drugs becomes the risk: is it worth
jeopardizing their stay at camp?"
Officials knew that many of
the young campers used mari-
juana frequently or occasionally
in the city and they asked such
campers why they did not bring
the drug to camp. The answers
varied. Some said "we like camp
and don't want to be sent home."
But most offered a more involved
answer: "We don't need drugs
here." This answer was by far
the most common.
The program director then an-
alyzed means used to help drug
users to reach that decision. He
declared "we must strive to make
the camp community really rele-
vant, meaningful and helpful. One
of the primary keys is to motivate
campers and staff to make the
camp important enough to war-
rant the disuse of drugs." The
result of that effort was that
"many campers expressed the
feeling that because of the atmos-
phere, relationships, activities and
life style of the camp, the daily ex-
perince became so meaningful and
exciting that drugs no longer
added a new dimension, as is so
often the rationale, but instead
detracted from it."
