Louisiana Floods
Miss -Area Jews

The president of the‘United
Jewish Charities (UJC) of
Northeast Louisiana in
Monroe, Morris Mintz, said
Tuesday that the UJC had
no information that any
Jewish homes, factories or
institutions in the area had
been damaged by the floors
which have ravaged the
area, causing, estimated
damages of $100 million.
Mintz told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, in a
telephone interview, that
the UJC had learned of one
case in which a Jewish-
owned home in the Monroe
area had come close to being
damaged by the rampaging
flood waters but actually
was not damaged.
Mintz said the UJC was
planning a special meeting
"within a few days" to
assess the flood's possible ef-
fects on local area Jews but
repeated that he was cer-
tain that if any Jewish fam-
ily, institution or business
had been hurt, the. UJC
would have learned about it
and would have stepped in
to:provide help.
