Senator James M. Mead was host at a luncheon today in honor of Francois de Tessan, French deputy and member of the French ORT Parliamentary Committee. Other guests included 25 Senators, ambassadors of Poland, France, Russia and the ministers of Rumania, Latvia and Lithuania. Senator Mead described the ORT as not a “charity,” but a “humanitarian social service to aid those who through no fault of their own are denied home and peace.”
