American ORT, the largest

tions supporting the global

habilitation through Train-
ing) program of vocational
education and training, will

The original nucleus was
organized by a group prima-
rily composed of women
who had either seen the
vocational program of ORT
in operation in Europe or
whose husbands were ac-
tive in the American ORT
Federation. The first honor-
ary president of WAO was
Mrs. Albert Einstein.

Keeping pace with the in-
creasing technologizing of
the world's economies, the
ORT network grew as its
supporting organization
spread rapidly throughout
the United States. In 1955,
WAO had about 10,000 mem-
bers, primarily in the north-
east, the middle west and
on the west coast. Today,
Women's American ORT
numbers 130,000 members
in 1,055 chapters from coast
to coast. The group is repre-
sented in every large and in-
termediate sized city in the
country and in many small-
er communities.

Our new-Golden Eagle Statement
Savings Account has a lot going for


In addition to the organi-
zation's substantial finan-
cial support of the ORT pro-
gram and vigorous educa-
tional activities, WAO has,
over the five decades of its
existence, set its own
unique stamp of the ORT
program. Because of its em-
phasis on the "social role"
of ORT, the primarily high-
school oriented program
was expanded to include
those who lacked education-
al prerequisites.
Thus, in North Africa an'c
in several underdeveloped
countries, apprenticeship
and even pre-apprentice-
ship courses were estab-
lished. Because of Women's
American ORT's efforts,
the "American presence"
of ORT was established, as
the organization offered
ORT's nearly century-old
expertise to local, state and
federal governments.

Many of the outstanding
schools in the ORT network
were totally 0; partially fi-
nanced by Women's Amen-
can ORT. They include the
Aron Syngalowski Center in
Tel Aviv, the Jeannette
Gayl Center in Haifa, the
John F. Kennedy Appren-
ticeship Center in Jerusa-
lem, the Lyon School in
Lyon, France, and most re-
cently, the ORT School of
Engineering on the campus
of the Hebrew University in
