Dr. Leon Fill, third from left, presented a $400,000
check to Jewish Agency Director-General Moshe Rivlin
at the recent United Jewish Appeal regional meeting in
Chicago. The meeting was one of five around the country
to launch a total mobilization campaign for immediate
cash flow. Active campaigners and UJA Young Leader-
ship Cabinet members Stanley Frankel, left, and Joel
Gershenson, right, attended the luncheon. UJA presi-
dent Paul Zuckerman and Jewish Welfare Federation
executive vice president William Avrunin also were at
the meeting. Dr. Fill is an AJC-IEF associate chairman.

The board also voted ap-
proval of the formula for
distribution of 1975 Allied
Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund receipts to
domestic beneficiaries. The
formula allows an increase
in the local-operating funds
available to Federation ben-
eficiaries as well as in total
allocations to national agen-
cies. The 1975 funding of
local capital needs was set
to repeat last year's level.

Fresh Air Society to enable
these agencies to balance
their current budgets.
Stanley D. Frankel, asso-
ciate chairman of Federa-
tion's Education budget and
planning Division, pre-
sented the Division's recom-
mendation for the Hebrew
schools. He explained that
the costs of teacher compen-
sation had somewhat ex-
ceeded original budgetary
projections. The supplement
amounted to about 2 per-
cent of the regular budget.
Dr. Conrad Giles, asso-
ciate chairman of the
Health and Welfare Divi-
sion, asked that the board
approve the recommenda-
tions of that Division re-
garding the Jewish Home
for Aged and Fresh Air So-
ciety. The additional funds
for the home are ear-
marked to help -subsidize
the necessary addition of
staff and to correct a defi-
cit in the salary and fringe
benefits program.
Although the home's in-
come has substantially in-
creased this year, it has not
been able to keep pace with
the additional expenditures,
Dr. Giles noted.
The funds for the Fresh
Air Society, which will serve
1,700 campers this summer,
are necessary because the
agency expects that a
greater number of camper-
ships will have to be granted
for the coming season, ac-
cording to Dr. Giles. He said
that the economic situation
in the community is being
reflected in the number of
applications and because
there will be more families
who will not be able to pay

WASHINGTON — Nego-
tiations for a technical as-
sistance contract between
the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology and Saudi
Arabia have broken down in
a disagreement over a guar-
antee for entry of Jews to
work on a water supply
project.
The draft of the $2 million
contract, which has been
under negotiation for two
years, provided that Saudi
Arabia would not deny a
visa to any member of the
work staff or academic per-
sonnel, including students,
assigned to the project by
MIT, regardless of religious
affiliation.
Prince Mohammed Ibn
Faisal, chairman of the Sau-
dian Saline Water Conver-
sion Corp., balked at signing
the contract in Jidda last
Thursday because of an al-
legedly "threatening letter"
he received from Dr. Jerome
Wiesner, president of MIT.
The letter reportedly

stated that any act of racial
or religious discrimination
toward an MIT participant
would cause for cancella-
tion.

cits. Many agencies re-
ceive the bulk of their sup-
port for operating
expenses from other
means of income, such as
fees and tuition charges,
governmental sources, and
from United Foundation
grants.
Meanwhile, Dr. Leon Fill
presented a .$400,000 chedk
to Jewish Agency Director-
General Moshe Rivlin at a
recent United Jewish Ap-
peal regional meeting in
Chicago.
Attending the regional
were Stanley Frankel, Joel
Gershenson, UJA President
Paul Zuckerman and Wil-

executive vice president.
