American aid for the emigration of Jews from Rumania and Iraq to Israel will be one of the major topics of discussion at the national conference of the United Jewish Appeal which opens here tomorrow in the presence of more than 500 Jewish communal leaders from 38 states.

Major speakers at the parley will be Mrs. Golda Myerson, Israel Minister of Labor, who will report on the situation in Israel; Aubrey S. Eban, newly-appointed Israel Ambassador to Washington; and Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, director-general of the Joint Distribution Committee, who returned this week from a fact-finding mission in Iran.
