Jewish children in Russia observed the Fourth of July yesterday.

According to news reaching the Joint Distribution Committee a group of Jewish orphans in Moscow called upon Dr. Boris D. Bogen, relief director, and presented him with an American flag. The banner was hand made by the children of the different institutions conducted by the J.D.C.

A patriotic demonstration in true American fashion was held following the presentation. The children expressed their thanks to Herbert Hoover, of the A.R.A., and to Dr. Bogen, for the aid given them in the past two years.

Dr. Bogen outlined to the officials present the relief work of the committee since it first started in Russia. He said that a large proportion of the Russian population had been brought back to a self supporting status and the people recognize that America was their savior.

“If orphan work continues until the end of the year”, he said, “I think the Jews of Russia will be entirely able to take care of themselves.”
