Nixon and Secretary of State William P. Rogers by Albert M. Franco, chairman of the Com- munity Relations Department of the Jewish Federation & Coun- cil of Greater Seattle urging the U.S. take the lead in stamping out air piracy: "Attempts by international pirates to hold innocent people as hostages for the release of convicted criminals strikes at the very fabric of world order and peace and merits the con- demnation of all civilized peo- ples. "We urge you to use every influence to secure the immedi- ate release of all passengers regardless of race, religion or nationality now being held by the guerrillas in Jordan. The United States must take the lead in condemning these acts of international piracy.

Israel Holds Abbie Nathan TEL AVIV, Sept. (JTA)- Abbie Nathan, Israel's one-man unofficial "peace mission," was barred from leaving the country .yesterday because of unpaid income tax amounting to IL 40,000. Mr. Nathan returned home two weeks ago to liquidate his property in order to finance the operation of his "peace ship" which has been berthed at a New York City pier for more than a year. The Internal Revenue Bureau claims that Nathan has paid no income tax on his property since 1965. He gained international fame for two solo flights into Egypt to persuade President Nasser to negotiate peace with Israel. He was promptly expelled on both occasions. Latterly Mr. Nathan was involved in the Biafran re- lief movement. i ii Happy New Year A Year of Health and Peace r: and Mrs. Jack Maimon and Family Happy New Year A Year of Health And Peace MR. & MRS.

Wtsky Best Wishes for the New Year The Wm. Vertlieb Family Many Jewi:il00 Refugees Settle in New York NEW YORK (JTA) -- More than 130,000 Jewish refugees have been helped to build new lives in the Greater New York area since 1949- including some 4,000 newcomers in 1969- according to a report by How- ard M. Harris, president of the New York Association for New Americans, an agency of the United Jewish Appeal. Most of those helped last year came from Poland and Czechoslovaki- a, with others from Rumania, Hungary and Arab countries, at a cost of $1 million, he told the 21st annual meeting of the agen- cy. He reported also that more than 12,000 Jews were helped to get jobs through direct place- ment, special training and re- training services. He said an increasingly important aspect of vocational aid has been provid- ing intensive English language courses and placement for pro- fessionals who came in large numbers during 1969. He reported that a workshop for aged and handicapped new- comers operated by NYANA employed 19 Jews last year, fewer than in 1968 because cur- rent immigrants are in much lower age brackets than in prior years. Old persons in the work center are enabled to earn So- cial Security benefits and to gain a spirit of independence and dignity. Some have been helped to move into the regular labor market. All told, he said, 485 persons have been helped in the work center since its estab- lishment in 1955. All of the Jew- ish families were given help according to their individual needs. The services include ini- tial reception, housing, basic furnishings, initial maintenance and clothing, medical and den- tal -care, family counseling, school placement, vocational training, guidance and job placement, and assistance through a business and loan program to establish small fam- ily enterprises, he reported. A special youth services pro- gram, established five years ago, was expanded in 1969, Mr. Harris reported. A total of 900 young Jewish newcomers had been helped in this program. Of these, 000 were aided in 1960. Every young newcomer is given the opportunity to discuss his educational background and aspirations with a vocational counselor. Intensive English language courses are provided. Financial help is provided for school reg- istration, tuition, books and oth- er incidentals for evening at- tendance at city colleges and, in some cases, at private colleges. Students are helped to get full or part-time jobs during the school year and in the summer, he added.
