Contents include: two front cover photos of UNRWA's Littlest School with accompanying article ("The children in UNRWA's littlest school go to class in their pyjamas. And after class many of them trot right back to bed. The school is a tiny one-room building in the middle of a hospital. The pupils, ranging in age from six to ten, all have tuberculosis"); Commissioner-General of UNRWA [Dr. John H. Davis] Announces Resignation; news items In Brief (including Visitors and Donations); Gaza's First Hay-Stack; The Clinic That Grew From a Christmas Gift ("Canadian troops in the Gaza Strip had little idea of what they were starting when they decided to give a Christmas gift to the refugees in 1961. The troops, members of the Canadian contingent of the United Nations Emergency Force, gave $6,000 to UNRWA to build a maternity centre at Khan Yunis camp"); CORSO Brings Aid from Afar (on the New Zealand Council of Organizations for Relief Service Overseas).
