WASHINGTON (JTA) — The United States embassies in Ar¬ gentina and Uruguay are con¬ tinuing to watch anti-Jewish acts in those countries, the State Department assured.

The assurance was given by Assistant Secretary of State Frederick G. Dutton to Senator Jacob K. Javlts, New York Re¬ publican.

The U.S. embassy In Monte¬ video reported to W^hlngton; "The Uruguayan public and press have become very concerned at these unfortunate incidents, which are thought to be the work of a very few extremist mem¬ bers of a society. It would ap¬ pear this concern is reflected in a vigorous effort on the part of their governmental authorities to halt this series of criminal acts." LATEST REPORT of violence came from Buenos Aires, where an anti-Semitic group attacked a Jewish center In suburban Lomas del Palomar while a social func¬ tion was In progress. Jews in the center fought back. They cap¬ tured one of the attackers, Or¬ lando Tedeschl, and handed him over to the local police. During the fracas, someone fired a shot. One ot the alleged Nazi .attackers, named Barbieri, was wounded. THE LOCAL police freed Te¬ deschl, and, instead of probing into the nature of the attack, detained Bernardo P. Flnkelsteln, one of the Jews at the scene, and charged him with beating Tedeschi. The police refused to probe the event further, attribut¬ ing the clash, merely to "a roup of unidentified hoodlums." The police also refused to accept the complaint of the Jewish center. The action of the police provok¬ ed protest on the part of the Jews who witnessed the clash. Mrs. Gotsfeld, Mizrachi Leader, Mourned After Death In Israel Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Securities News 5 Synagogues 5 Shopping Guide 5 Society 6, 7 Sports 8, 9 ¦TEL AVIV—Mrs. Bessie Gots¬ feld, honorary national president of the Mizrachi Women's Or¬ ganization of America, the major women's religious-Zionist organi¬ zation in the United States, died here recently at the age of 72. '' For more than a quarter of a century, Mrs. Gotsfeld served as Israel representative of the or¬ ganization she had helped to found, developing a network of child care and social welfare pro¬ jects supported by American Miz¬ rachi Women. TO THOUSANDS of children and young peopie brought to Is¬ rael by Youth Allyah she was guide, confidant, and substitute mother. Mrs. Gotsfeld's first experience with refugees and social welfare work in the United States came In aiding Jewish refugees fleeing religious persecution in Czarist Russia. Mrs. Gotsfeld was born in Galicia. Poland, and emigrated to the United States in her early tijens. Shortly after her marriage to the late Mr. Mendel Gotsfeld, she moved her home from New York City to Seattle, Wash. There she rapidly assumed a leadership position In the rehabilitation and resettlement of thousands o£ Jew¬ ish refugees arriving in the West Coast port from Russia. FOLLOWING World War I, her established interest in Zion¬ ism and a flair tor organization and administration found expres¬ sion in an effort lo bring togeth¬ er on a national level several auxiliary women's groups ot the Mizrachi (religious-Zionist) or- ganizi^tion. In 1925, the goal was achieved with the founding of the Mizrachi Women's Organization of Ameri¬ ca, which has grown to some SO.¬ OOO women, with more than 350 local chapters in the United States. After a preliminary survey in Palestine in 1926, Mrs. Gotsfeld recommended the organization establish vocational training cen¬ ters for adolescent girls in Israel. The project was adopted and bore fruit in the establishment of the Beth Zelroth MizrachI in Jeru¬ salem, a school in which young women were taught home eco¬ nomics, dress-making and other skills In an atmosphere of tradit¬ ional Judaism. IVIRS. GOTSFELD set up and established orphans' homes, child¬ ren's centers and nurseries in Is¬ rael to provide care for the young¬ er victims of Nazism during the •30s. With the establishment of Is- (conffnutd on pag* 4] Conference Plans World Bureau Of Jewish Education JERUSALEM, (.ITA) — The World Conference on Jewish Education concluded its six-day sessions here with tbe adoption of a resolution providing for the establishment of a World Bureau of .Jewish Education to act as a central clearing house for collecting and dis.seminating Information on Jewish edu¬ cation throughout the world. It is expected that the bureau will begin with an annual budget of $250,000 which will ( come' in part from various parti¬ cipating organizations. The Con¬ ference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany will also be asked to allocate funds for the bureau. THE BUREAU would also "form the basis for the subse¬ quent formation of plans to help meet education needs and raise the educational standards in all Jewish communities in light of their own views ajid con¬ ditions and in full respect for their autonomy." The World Conference, which was attended by 500 laymen and professional educators from 32 communities in countries outside Israel, directed that the bureau be supervised by a World Coun¬ cil on Jewish Education, to be "representative of the major Jew¬ ish communities, ediucatlonaj bodies and all significant trends, religious and cultural, in Jewish life." THB OOMPOSITION of the World Council was not decided by the delegates who requested instead that the Conference of Jewish Organizations, which sponsored the education confer¬ ence here, "consult with their member organizations and other appropriate groups and religious institutions" to plan the structure of the Council and provide the "widest possible constituency for its work." A number of Jewish education leaders are to assist OOJO In its work of establishing the Educa¬ tion Council. Yehuda Heliman of New York, secretary of OOJO, said the group would begin the task immediately and complete the work within the six-month period recommended by the dele¬ gates. THE DELEGATES left to the World Council the decision about where the new education bureau should be located. Sentiment here was divided among Jerusalem, a major European city and New York. There is a possibility that the bureau might have two lo¬ cations, one of which probably wili be in Jerusalem. Delegates at the final session of the Education Conference here applauded enthusiastically when Moshe Sharett, chairman of the Jewish Agency executive, road a cable from the Rabbinical Council ot America, the leading organization of Orthodox rabbis, declaring itself read to "partici¬ pate In the permanent work" of the now group.
