News Brief

Several hundred sailors from visiting ships of the U.S. Sixth Fleet used their shore leave in Haifa last week to lend a helping hand to sick or elderly people. Some of the seamen volunteered to paint the children’s ward at Rothschild Hospital. Other seamen toured rundown neighborhoods to clean and paint the homes of invalids and other shut-ins.
