A total of 220 young men and women have been placed during the last six months in positions where they do not have to work on the Sabbath, as a result of the efforts of the Jewish Sabbath Alliance of America, it is announced.

The Alliance has also been actively engaged in compiling a list of Sabbath-observing business firms of the city of New York. The Legal Department has been instrumental in obtaining the acquital of 21 Sabbath observers who were summoned for Sunday violations. Dr. Bernard Drachman is president of the Association.
