Miss Eva Dushkin, social worker, sailed yesterday on the steamer Roma for Palestine.

Miss Dushkin, who was trained in playground and recreational center work by the Playground and Recreation Association of America, will organize playground activities in Jerusalem, Haifa, Tiberias and Tel Aviv.

The construction and maintenance of the playgrounds have been made possible by funds donated by Mrs. Max Guggenheimer of Lynchburg, Va. One playground is already in operation in Jerusalem, and it is planned to build additional ones in connection with the schools.
