New Relief Work in Central Europe to Begin >IR. .IAMRS KOSEN'ItERd CHAIR MAN OF TIIK EI ROFRAN EXE CT’TIVE COI’NCIIi. TO STAR! RECONSTRUCTION. Tho Joint Distribution c ommit lee lms now completed all the preparatory work that was required to effect the transition from the temporary and emergency forms of immediate relief to systematic reconstruction work, and ns soon as Mr. James Rosenborg, the newly appointed chairman of the European Executive* Council, arrives in Vienna, the entire machinery for the new relief work will he ready to start. Mr. James Rosenberg, who sailed for Europe a few days ago. is widely reputed as a distinguished lawyer. He has volunteered his services for the cause of relief and will remain with the Joint Distribution committee as long as the needs of the work may re. quire. He places at the disposal of the Joint Distribution committee his rich business experience, which is a most valuable contribution In the pres, cut condition of relief work. What the relief work in Europe needs most nc tho present time is uu experienced and practical leader, a man who shall l>e able to coordinate the various activities of the Joint Dls. trihution committee. With the excep tion of Russia, the relief work now no longer has to !w* a response to sudden and accidental devolpments. Imme diate relief has las'll discontinued and it is to la* hoped that no such unexpected developments will hence forth occur in tho life of the Jews of Central Europe as to divert the relief work from the new path which it lias now entered. The scope of the present relief work has been clearly and sharply defined: Economic Re construction. Medical Aid, Orphans’ C aro, and Relief for Refugees—those are the four fields in which relief work is now concentrated. Each of these four branehes is hooded by a specialist, a man who has qualified for his task by a long study of the situation. Tho program for each Held has been worked out. and the machinery is ready to carry it out. It is the heads of those four branches, and their chief assistants, that con stitute the European Executive Coun cil of the Joint Distribution committee. The Council has lately moved Its head quarters from Paris to Vienna, in or der to l»e nearer to the countries where tho relief work is carried on. and • to keep In closer contact with every new development in the relief situa tion. What the system was lacking tine* far was a general bond who should coordinate tho work of the several specialists and hold in his hands the threads of the various activities of the committee. In the person of Mr. James Rosenberg the Joint Distribu tion committee has now found the man it needs. With his appointment ns chairman of the European Execu tive Council the. machinery for the carrying out of the new program is complete. Mr. Rosenßerg has for years been connected with various Jewish Insti tutions, and he devoted the last few months before his departure to a thorough study of the Jewish situa tion and of all the relief problems In Europe. lie also came in touch with Secretary of Commerce Hoover and with Colonel Haskell, his representa tive in Russia. He was imbed one of those who cooi>ornted with Mr. Hoover and Colonel Haskell in the drafting of a program for special Jew- j ish relief in Russia. He thus went | to Europe fully equipped to deal with j any problem that may confront him there, and will be able to start his 1 work Immediately upon hi* arrival in Vienna, where he is expected within a few days?
