Mr. Kol, who was a luncheon guest of Mrs. Roosevelt, informed her that Youth Aliyah has brought 60,000 children and youth from 70 different countries to Israel. It currently is responsible for some 13,500 children and youth and is expanding its program to accommodate an additional 500 each month. Major support for the program is provided by the Hadassah.
