Agudas Israel Youth Convention Asks Refugee Shelters in Palestine, Latin-america

Establishment of emergency refugee shelters in Palestine and Latin America was urged here last night in a resolution adopted at the closing session of the five-day Agudas Israel Youth Council convention.

The council also decided to prepare a religious education program for returning servicemen and suggested that a national Jewish youth congress be called to foster sabbath observances and fight calendar reform.

Michael G. Tress of New York City was re-elected president. Greetings were received from Herbert H. Lehman. director-general of UNPRA and John W. Pehle, executive director of the War Refugee Board.
