HARLAN The Protestant Chapel at Brandeis University, one of q unique interfoith grouping of three chapels serving the major faiths on cam¬ pus, will be named In memory of a former Supreme Court Justice, John Marshall Harlan. Justice Harlan was a predecessor of the Supreme Court bench of Justice L.ouls Dembitz Brandeis, for whom the univer¬ sity wos named. Kno>vn as the "Great Dissenter," Justice Harlan was responsible for the dictum that "The Constitution Is color blind" when in the case of Plessy vs. Ferguson he dissented in the decision which set up separate facilities for colored and white In the elementary schools ol the country. Only this spring the U. S. Supreme Court re¬ versed Itself, upholding Justice Harlan's- stand of 1896. The unique Interfaith concept of the three chapels has ottracted nationwide attention. Of equal size and adequacy, the three chapels are conceived in modern architect¬ ural design. The chapels reflect the similarity of the faiths while still respecting their doctrinal differ- enoes. On the local scene, Book Fund chairmen Mrs. M. A, Krakoff arid Mrs. A. B. Gertner wish to thank the following for their contribu¬ tions: In memory of Al)e Papier, from Mr. and Mrs. Julius Wasserstrom, Mr. and Mrs. Emll Wasserstrom and Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Levin.

Remington. Rd., Co¬ lumbus, O., Executive Director of the United Jewish F'und of Colum¬ bus, stopped off here on his tour of Irraei and Europo to visit Grand Arenas, reception camp for North African Jews en route to Israel. where they will make their perm¬ anent homes. Bernstein Is part of a study group organized by the United Jewish Appeal to enable Jewish executives to see at first hand the needs of the Jewish communities of Europe, Israel and North Africa, and the work being done on their behalf with funds raised by the UJA. which Is the major benefi¬ ciary of the UJF of Columbus. The group spent 11 days In Is¬ rael touring the country seeing the welfare and reconstruction activi¬ ties of the Jewish Agency and the American Joint Distribution Com¬ mittee, chief beneficiaries of the UJA. Before coming to Marseilles, they visited Rome, where they wit¬ nessed the programs sponsored by the Jt)C on behalf of the needy Jews of Italy. More than 2,800 North Africans were in the camp at the time of Mr. Bernstein's visit. "It was a moving experience to see these men, women and children, two- thirds of them from Morroco, only a feiJv days removed from vlolencx* and bloodshed, lodged In safety and being prepared to set up life amongst their brethren In Israel," he said. "Nobody can tell for certain what will eventually happen In North Africa, nor who,t the future will bring to the 500,000 Jews resi- ent there. It was gratifying there¬ fore, to speak to these people and to know that they were changing from thc uncertainty of their form¬ er lives to the promise of surety and security that awaits them in Israel." Set up In 1947 as a reception camp for emigrants on their way to Israel, Grand Arenas is situated on the outskirts of Marseilles. In general, migrants stay at the camp for only a few days until they are placed on ships. Since 1947 more than 200,000 men, women tind chil¬ dren have passed through the camp on their-way to Israel. Last month, more than 2,000 arrived In the camp, all of them from North Africa, and about 3.000, including holdovers from previous months, left for Israel. Transients live In barracks and are served by a staff of 35. A feature of the camp is the hospital which contains 30 beds and is staffed by two doctors, two nurses, Cooks and maintenance personnel.' Before visiting the oamp the .•iludy group mot a ship at thc Marseilles dock, newly-arrived from Morocco wtth 250 emigres who were taken to the camp at Grand Arenas. The study group leaves for Paris, where they will meet with JDC officials and community lead¬ ers for discussion of Jewish prob¬ lems in Europe, and North Africa.
