Warburg, at the fourth rally of campaigners held yesterday afternoon at the Hotel Pennsylvania.

The rally developed into an ovation for four of the largest department store owners in New York, Horace A. Saks, Samuel J. Bloomingdale, Percy S. Scrans, and Bernard F. Gimbel, who have been instrumental in organizing the largest number of made groups in the Business Men’s Council which is conducting this charity drive for the Federation.

These four leaders have organized 43 trade groups, culminating in the cooperative effort of the 137 trades of the Business Men’s Council to launch the campaign.

This does not include the $60,000 quota of the department store group in which these men are also interested.
