A contribution sufficient to endow ten hospital beds for one year was made this week-end by the philanthropic fund of the American Council for Judaism to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which aids Arab refugees. A spokesman for the Council stated that the figure was being with held at the request of an anonymous donor who had given the money for this purpose to the Council.

Leo Cherne, chairman of the International Rescue Committee, announced receipt of three grants from the fund to aid Jews in Austria who recently fled satellite countries, to expedite processing of indemnification claims and to aid Jews in Belgium and France who emigrated from Israel and Jewish refugees from Arab countries now in France.
