Ort Sets Budget of $175,000 for Next Six Months

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The budget for the activities of the Ort, the society for the promotion of trades and agriculture among the Jews in Eastern Europe, was fixed at the plenary session of the Central Executive Committee of the society held here.

The Committee decided to work on a budget of $175,000 for the next six months.

The International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union, through its president. Morris Sigman, turned down an invitation of the Needle Trades Workers’ Union of Russia to send fraternal delegates to its congress, scheduled to be held in Moscow, April 7.

The invitation was rejected because of Moscow’s alleged interference in the recent strike of 35,000 cloakmakers.
