Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Max M. Rosenberg was re-elected national president of Women’s American ORT at the closing session of the organization’s 17th biennial national convention, meeting at the New York Hilton Hotel. She has been active in the 60,000-member group, which supports the global vocational training program of the World ORT Union, for more than 15 years.

The convention adopted a resolution on Women’s American ORT’s increased support of the world ORT Union and pledged to expand vocational facilities in Toulouse, Montreuil, Lyons and Marseille, in France; Tel Aviv; and in Uruguay. The resolution promised fuller development and expansion of “pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship and short-term vocational courses everywhere.”

The four-day convention heard addresses by Senator Paul H. Douglas; Mayor Robert F. Wagner of New York; Dr. William Haber, president of the American ORT Federation; Max A. Braude, director-general of the World ORT Union; and Charles Jordan, overseas director of the Joint Distribution Committee.
