MONTREAL (Nov. 11)
A special Jewish Telegraphic Agency-Xerox news center began functioning today at the 34th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, bringing the latest information of world-wide Jewish developments to the 1,000 delegates and guests attending the five-day session.
JTA news bulletins, transmitted on an hourly schedule from JTA headquarters in New York by special teletype line to the JTA-Xerox news center at General Assembly headquarters in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel here, are being reproduced on a high-speed Xerox machine, and distributed to the delegates and guests. The news tapes are also being displayed on a JTA wallboard newspaper frame, which speedily became a center of interest for hundreds of delegates. The special service to the participants in the General Assembly was arranged as a public service by the JTA in cooperation with Xerox of Canada, Ltd.
