Roslyn Brown is a fictiti-

real, and is shared by many
women forced to look for
outside work after years as
full-time homemakers.
"I met my husband when I
was 17, married at 19 and
had my first child before I
was 21," she said. "I didn't
go to college and the only
time I worked was when I
finished high school and
had a job as a receptionist-
typist.
"I knew I wanted a career,
not just a job, but I didn't
know where to start.to get
my life structured again,"
Mrs. Brown said.
Some friends told her
about Jewish Vocational
Service. "I feel as if I owe my
life to Mrs. Stewart," she
said of Gail Stewart, the
JVS counselor who helped
her define her goals and
prepare to achieve them:-
"Roslyn owes her life to
herself," said Mrs. Stewart.
"She worked very hard to
get where she is now."
Vocational counseling
requires a lot of self-
examination on the part of
the client, she explained.
When they come to the
agency, they are usually at
some crisis point in their
lives.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
cold attitude of the People's
Republic of China toward
Israel was displayed in a
volleyball championship
tournament between Israeli
and Chinese high school
girls in Bristol, England
over the weekend.
The contestants were the
Israeli champions from
theKhashmonayim school
in Bat Yam and the cham-
pions of Shantung province.
The latter demonstrated
unsportsmanlike behavior
when, after defeating the
Israeli team 2-0, they re-
fused to shake hands with
their opponents, turned
their backs and walked
away.
