(J. T. A. Mail Service)

–An annual subvention of 1,200,000 drachmas for the schools of the Jewish community of Salonica has been agreed to by the Zaimis-Ca fandaris Cabinet after a considerable delay. The decision still requires ratification by the Chamber of Deputies. Since the reorganization of the Cabinet by M. Venizelos, with the resignation of M. Zaimis, the future of the Jewish communal schools of Salonica has again become doubtful. The schools cannot exist without State grants, and it is hoped that M. Venizelos will decide to approve the decision of the late Government with regard to the subsidy for the Jewish schools.

The summer camps conducted by the Council Sections throughout the United States and in Canada are now at the height of their activity, according to a statement made by Mrs. Julius Fryer of Cleveland. National Chairman of the Department of Social Service of the National Council of Jewish Women.

Chicago Council Section, of which Mrs. Samuel Alschuler is president, will make it possible for 1000 mothers and babies to leave the city in July and August for a vacation at its camp at Wauconda, Illinois. This camp is equipped with unusaully excellent recreational facilities and has been conducted for several years.
