City Should Do More for Orphaned Youth, Declares Simmonds

Youth adrift, unemployed in a world in which values are shifting, was discussed in a recent symposium arranged by the Welfare Council of New York City over Radio Station WOR. S. Theodore Granik presided.

Lionel J. Simmonds, executive director of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, pictured the plight of youths leaving institutions such as orphan asylums without home ties or employment. The City, he said, is not doing enough to care for these cases.
