ris reported. A total of 900 young
Jewish newcomers had been
helped in this program. Of these,
600 were aided in 1969.
Every young newcomer is given
the opportunity to discuss his edu-

private colleges. Students are
helped to get full or part-time
jobs during the school year and in
the summer, he added.
There was a symposium on die
problems of Jews in unfriendly
countries and the difficulties of
uprooting and resettlement, led by
Samuel J. Haber, executive vice-
chairman of the Joint Distribution
Committee. The participants were
four 21-year-old Jewish emigres
from the Soviet Union, Poland,
Czechoslovakia and Egypt. All of
the young newcomers expressed
enthusiasm about the opportunities
open to them in the United States
and the possibilities of living
openly and freely as Jews. One of
them, a girl from Poland, said
"I couldn't believe it when I saw
everybody getting days off for
Passover and talking about it as
though it was the most • natu , a1
thing in the world."
