The Alliance Israelite Universelle has been invited by persons authorized by the Zionist Organization, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns, to state its views regarding the possibility of its participation in the enlarged Jewish Agency.

The Praesidium of the Alliance, it is learned, has replied that the question will be under consideration shortly of the leaders of the Alliance, and a decision will be reached on the subject. It is understood that the Zionist Executive has decided to allocate three seats in the Council of the Jewish Agency to the representatives of French Jewry.

An annual grant of $3,000 has been made to the Jewish Laurentian Fresh Air Camp by the Quebec provincial government, the money to be used for maintenance of the camp each Summer. The camp, which provides for Summer holidays for poor Jewish mothers and their children, has the cooperation of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Montreal and of the Jewish Junior League of Montreal. The grant was made possible by Hon. Athanase David, the Provincial Secretary, and was announced by Peter Bercovitch, K.C., M.L.A., and Joseph Cohen, K.C., M.L.A.

The Laurentian Fresh Air Camp raised $20,000 as a building fund recently, in order to erect a permanent rest home.
