Campaign Chairman Dulcie
Rosenfeld explained the
Phonogift effort.
Some six hundred Divi-

In all, more than 50 Rus-
sian Jews are enrolled in
English classes at the Jew-

They are bused there Mon-

their homes in Oak Park

Barbara Woodell, one of
two salaried instructors in
the program.
Most of the teaching is
done by 70 volunteers, said
