P. B. Noyes of Oneida, N. Y., President of Oneida Community, Lint., who was attached to the staff of the Peace Conference in Paris following the war, has contributed $1,000 to the United Palestine Appeal through Philip Luria, Chairman of the Appeal for the East Side of New York.
In his letter accompanying the contribution, Mr. Noyes wrote:
“Our talk on Wednesday about affairs in Palestine revived in me the interest which was decidedly keen six or seven years ago when I was attached to the staff of the Peace Conference in Paris. At that time I heard much of this movement through Felix Frankfurter and other President Wilson’s advisors, but since 1919 I have known little of its progress.
“Developments in Palestine as you described them to me seem to assure ultimate success for the project, and my recent visit to Russia and Poland has emphasized the value of that success.”
