A decision to convene a World OSE Congress in Israel within six months was adopted here at a meeting of the Central Board of the World OSE Union which was attended by delegates from numerous countries. Old OSE leaders from all over the world will be invited to come to the congress, it was announced.

The Central Board adopted a number of resolutions dealing with the activities of the organization in 1958, as well as one which urged that no groups be formed to compete with the activities of OSE. It voted confidence in the leadership of Abel Shaban, president of the organization, and charged him with the task of acting as chairman of the executive until the congress is held.

Shlomo Shweitzer has been designated to act as director general of the Union, Mr, Shweitzer is a graduate of the University of Geneva, a member of the Actions Committee of the world Zionist movement, a member of the cultural committee of the World Jewish Congress, and a member of several executives of national Jewish organizations in Paris.
