Meeting concur- rently with the Conference were four affiliated groups, the Association of Jewish Com- munity Relations Workers, Na- tional Association of Jewish Center Workers, National Asso- ciation for Jewish Education and the National Association of Jewish Homes for the Aged. Relationship between public and private agencies in plan- ning and implementing serv- ices was discussed at a general session of the conference. Mar- tha K. Selig of the New York Federation of Jewish Philan- thropies, pointed out that "gov- ernment on all levels is reflect- ing an increased responsibility, prinmrily through funding, in areas of program planning, re- search and education, and di- rect services." She asked what was the role of the local and voluntary agency in this situa- tion. Herschel Alt, executive vice president of the Jewish Board of Guardians of New York, told the conference that "there is a place for the private agency and the government in community services. As a mat- ter of fact, the lines are blend- ing, there is no real private agency. All of them work co- operatively with government agencies. It will vary from city to city, but generally the grow- tag governmental services will build on existing agencies, using their experience, their personnel and their facilities." Sanford Solender, executive vice president, National Jewish Welfare Board, asserted that "Collaboration with public services can be the best ex- pression of the broad social commitment of Jewish social welfare agencies. Administered with sensitivity to purposes nd roles, such cooperation can enable the agencies to ful- fill their Jewish purposes and to contribute significantly o meeting the needs of the whole community. In the finest sense, Jewish agencies thus take their 91ace as an integral part of the total social welfare complex erected by a free people to achieve its human destiny." Dr. Herman D. Stein, dean- elect of the School of Applied Social Sciences, Western Re- serve University, told the con- ference that social work was drawing increasingly on the behavioral and social sciences for more effective work in all fields. He stressed that profes- sional education of social work- ers provided the means for the greater application of scientific learning to the day-to-day problems of social work and noted that it was the social worker who had to take the Electric Kitchens, Inc.
