A left-stapled Newsweek-size magazine measuring 8-1/4" by 10-3/4" and containing 16 pages including front and rear covers. The issue contains news, articles and photographs on the present conditions of the Palestine refugee camps, UNRA's efforts to provide relief and outreach (with immediate goals of providing food, health services, education, training, and shelter for the refugees and long-term goals of assisting the refugees to become self-supporting), and personal stories and profiles of the refugees who live there. Contents include: cover photo of a refugee student nurse assisting on ward duty at Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem, Jordan; Pledging Conference Reveals a Critical Deficit; Quarter of a Million Refugee Children in School (with table); Ambition Attained ("Noura [no last name provided] knew her vocation: she wanted to be a midwife. But her father would not hear of it. Like many of the older generation in the Middle East, he considered it improper for a girl to work outside the home - an attitude that, until very recently, applied particularly to the nursing profession. Noura's pleas met with repeated refusals. Noura, an 18-year-old refugee girl who lived with her parents in a refugee camp in Lebanon, took her problem to UNRWA's Field Nursing Officer - The nurse discovered that the main cause of the father's objection was that Noura would have to shed her 'tarha,' the traditional head-piece worn by many Arab women, and wear a uniform, which he considered immodest"); news items In Brief (including Palestinian [Mr. Wajed Mustakim] to Head UNRWA's School Education Division; Visitors; Contributions); UNRWA Graduates: Two Tales.
