National Council of Jewish Women Asks Spend Mote for Welfare

The National Council of Jewish Women stood firm today on its policy to support greater Federal spending for education and welfare legislation, despite a personal appeal from Treasury Secretary George Humphrey for economy.

In a special message, Mr. Humphrey urged the group to support budget cutting measures. In response to the note, the Council passed a motion supporting more Federal spending for education and progress to combat Juvenile delinquency.

The Council, meeting here for its 22nd national convention, also heard Dr. Eveline Burns of the Columbia University School of Social Work speak on the place of the volunteer in social service work. Elliot L, Richardson, Assistant Secretary of Health, Welfare and Education, commended the organization for its recreational programs for the aging.

Francis Wilcox, Assistant Secretary of State for United Nations Affairs, will speak to the Council tomorrow on “the United Nations and public understanding.”
