of its three-day conference.
To meet the rising needs
for the ORT services, and
the inflationary spiral
throughout the world, the
conference found it necessary
March 25 to April 4 (10 nights)
to raise ORT expenditures

the rehabilitation of refugees
and displaced persons in
many countries throughout
the world. Time has not di-
minished the necessity for
your important work," the
President said, "nor has it
dulled the vigor with which
you approach the challenge
of lifting people from poverty
-and deprivation."
Braude predicted an ex-
pansion of ORT activities in
1975 of about 12 percent.
"The largest part of this in-
crease," he told the 600 dele-
gates "consists of additional
students in Israel, 1,000 of
them in the enlarged network
of ORT technical colleges."
Most of the 500,000 Jews
who used to live in North
Africa have left, largely for
resettlement in Israel and
France, Braude noted. ORT
has closed its programs in
Algeria and Tunisia, but con-
tinues a limited program in
Morocco, where it still
serves 1,300 out of a total
Jewish population of 20,000.
Substantial ORT programs
are in operation in Iran and
India.
He announced plans to open
three new technical junior
colleges in Israel, and the
completion during 1975 of
phase one of the vast com-
plex of the ORT School of
Engineering now being built
on the Hebrew University
campus in Jerusalem.
Additional school buildings
are also being constructed in
Lyons, France, as well as in
Teheran, which is the center
of an ORT program serving
the youth of this Jewish
community of some 80,000.
Braude also pointed out the
recent growth of the ORT
operation in Rome, where
Russian emigres not going
to Israel, spend an average
of from six to eight weeks
before plans -are made for
their final settlement.
In a dollars and cents
evaluation of what ORT
means to its trainees, Braude
estimated that the almost
20,000 who graduated ORT
institutions last June as
skilled technicians will earn
about $40,000,000 in their first
year of work, with a rapid
progression of earnings that
are available for trained per.
sonnel.
Edward Schneider of
Brooklyn, New York, chair-
man of the ORT Technic-al
Assistance Program, who was
elected assistant treasurer,
reported on its non-sectarian
undertakings in behalf of the
U•S. Agency for International
Development (AID) and other
governments including Swit-
zerland, Denmark and Can-
ada.

great-grandchildren will live

versary of the state of Israel

the United States, was op-
timistic a-bout the political
future of Israel when he said
that "there is no reason for
despair, no reason for agony,
no reason to walk with our
heads down as though we
were facing imminent politi-
cal catastrophe."
-
Dinitz, speaking at the
ORT conference, admitted
that "we are facing difficult

times, but to use Dr. Martin
King's classic phrase, 'we
will overcome' our current
problems. There will always
be a state of Israel," he de-
clared, "and never again will
Jews be led to slaughter as
was the case during the Nazi
Holocaust."
