Rabbi Adolph Steiner of Temple Bnai Israel was elected chairman and campaign director for the State of Utah by the general committee of the Near East Relief at a meeting in the Chamber of Commerce yesterday.

"Dr. Steiner is the man for this job", said Dr. George E. Davies, representing the Salt Lake Ministerial Association. "It is a big undertaking to get $50,000 from Utah at this time, but we know the Rabbi is big enough for the job. His spirit is right and he stands well in the community. We will, every one of us Clergymen, stand right behind him and we cannot fail."

Among other members on the committee are Heber J. Grant, pres. of the Mormon Church, Rt. Rev. Joseph H. Glass, Roman Catholic Bishop for Utah, Governor Chas. R. Mabey, former Gov. Simon Bamberger, and Bishop A. W. Moulton of the Episcopal Church in Utah.
