Large numbers of Jewish men and boys are going from town to town in search of work, according to B. Fisher, treasurer of the Durban Jewish Benevolent Society.

If measures for their rehabilitation are not promptly taken, they will degenerate into tramps and useless citizens, Mr. Fisher says.

The Durban Benevolent Society is deluged with requests for aid and employment. Unable to supply jobs, the society is compelled to finance passage to other cities where conditions may be improved.
