An exhibition of the products of the Joint Distribution Committee trade schools in Eastern Europe was opened here yesterday in the Zoo Hall. Representatives of the German and foreign press and of the various Jewish organizations were present.

Addresses were delivered by D### Schweitzer, general secretary of the European bureau of the Joint Distribution Committee and others.

The exhibits represent the work of 17,000 Jewish orphans who are being taught trades in the J.D.C. schools. Experts expressed admiration for the skill and artistry of the work. The exhibits will be transported to the United States where they will be displayed in various cities.
