A resolution providing for the establishment of an Inter-American Research department to conduct Jewish research work in all countries of the American continent was adopted last night at the closing session of the 16th annual conference of the Yiddish Scientific Institute held at the Capitol Hotel here.

The 400 delegates participating in the conference also decided to raise a fund to acquire a building for the Institute in New York. N. Feinerman, executive secretary of the Institute, reported that the institution spent $40,000 in the course of 1941 and that it will soon publish, among other works, the History of the American Jewish Labor Movement in three volumes.
