President Eduard Benes yesterday received Ernst Frischer, chairman of the central council of the Union of Jewish Communities in Bohemia and Moravia, with whom he discussed some of the urgent problems facing Czech Jewry. Mr. Benes is reported to have expressed a desire to aid the Jews in overcoming these difficulties.

Harry A. Goodman, political secretary of the Agudas Israel in England was welcomed to Prague at a dinner last night arranged by the Vead Hatzala. He will study the relief measures for Czech Jews which have been instituted by Jewish organizations in Britain and will then proceed to Slovakia for a visit to the Jewish communities there.
