Graduation exercises were held for the third time yesterday at the Paul Daerwald School of Social Work in Versailles, founded by the Joint Distribution Committee. Twenty-one students received their certificates after a year’s study of American methods of social work. The students hailed from all over Europe, North Africa and Israel. A majority of them will work for Jewish communities in North Africa and Israel.
