Social scientists from three continents will meet at the Arden House in Harriman, N. Y. this weekend for a Histadrut-sponsored conference on integration and acculturation. The three days of deliberations will begin tomorrow.

Panelists will include scholars from American universities, Africa and Israel. The conference was convened by the American Histadrut Cultural Exchange Institute, under the chairmanship of Howard J. Samuels, Rochester industrialist. Dr. Judd L. Teller, executive vice-chairman, is conference director. The experts will cite direct experiences in dealing with racial integration in the United States, culturally divergent newcomers to Israel and problems of tribalism in the new African states.
