When a Sephardic student
does get to the university, he
often finds he cannot compete
with the other students because
of the cultural gap and a large
percentage of them, therefore,
do not complete their studies.
By way of attempting to alleviate

the problem, compulsory education
in Israel now starts with kinder-
garten. Boarding schools and day
schools, where children of Sephar-
dic families may live and study
with those of other cultural back-
grounds, is another approach to
properly motivating these children.
In addition, the government grants
to students from Sephardic commu-
nities are higher because of the
generally lower income status of
their parents.
"There is no magical solution to
the problem," an education minis-
try spokesman said. "In the next
five years we want twice as many
university students to come from
the Sephardic community. This is
the challenge for the ministry of
education and culture, and, in fact,
a challenge for the whole society
of Israel."

Morris Abram Heads
Negro College Fund I

NEW YORK (JTA)—Morris B.
Abram, former president of the
American Jewish Committee and
Brandeis University, was named
Monday as the first Jewish chair-
man of the United Negro College
Fund, which raises money for 36
predominantly black colleges and
universities. The schools have a
total enrollment of 40,000 students
and 2,500 full-time faculty mem-
bers.
As president, Abram will over-
see an effort to raise $10,000,000
this year, compared with 1969 re-
sults of $6,875,000. The fund tries
to cover at least 10 per cent of
the operating costs of the 36 mem-
ber colleges.
