Each package was indi- Vidually wrapped in gay trimmings and contained a card with a per- SOnal message including the name and address of the woman who Wrapped it. The same project was Carried out at Chanukah time last Year and the response that was re- ceived from the soldiers in Korea Was tremendous and it was very satisfying to know what a tremen- dous lift these men so far away frora horae received from these lit- tle gifts. Similar projects are car-' ried on throughout the United States and every Jewish Chaplain in Iorea receives a shipment for dis- tribution to the men in his com- raand. Through arrangements by Phillip Posner, the Area Director for J.W.B., the cartons were transport- ed by the Army to Chaplain Sieg- Vaan in Korea at no cost to the com- raittee.

Mr. Frankel states that although only twelve employed newcomers were invited to attend the clincs, ;ixteen responded to this invitation of the meeting which was held at Neighborhood House. The material discussed by the Vocational Counselor that evening was .compiled from telephone con- versations and personal interviews with employers who have new Americans on their pay rolls. Al- though most of the employers seemed satisfied with these new employees, the greatest difficulty, Mr. Frankel stated, seemed to be the question of seniority when it came to retainment. The primary objective, therefore, the Counselor felt, was to discuss with those pres- ent ways and means of increasing their effectiveness and value to their employers. It was Mr. Frankel's feeling that "These newcomers to our commun- ity were extremely happy at being financially self-supporting and de- sired to maintain that status as long as possible. These newcomers obtain more than a wage or salary when they are employed. They ob- tain a feeling of dignity and self- respect when they are financially independent that helps make them good American citizens and fine additions to the community." More meetings of the Keep-Your- Job Clinic will be held in the fu- ture, in the recognition that some of these peole will inevitably lose their jobs because of reasons beyond their control.
