(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Reports from various districts indicate that the Wider Scope campaign to raise a fund of $2,000,000 for the activities of the Independent Order B’nai Brith is going forward, a statement issued by the headquarters of the Order here says.

The report from District No. 3 shows that under the leadership of Joseph L. Kun, fifty percent of the district’s quota has been raised.

The aim in District No. 5 is to reach as much of the quota as possible before the annual convention of the district, Joseph Wilner, the president of the district, is directing the drive in Washington, D.C. The other cities in the district, except Baltimore, are conducting their campaigns.

Robert Lappen, president of the District Grand Lodge, heads the campaign in Des Moines.

In Detroit the Jewish Welfare Federation has made a large subscription which covers the city, aside from the B’nai Brith membership.

Milwaukee, under the able leadership of B. E. Nickoll, is conducting its campaign.

District No. 6 has already subscribed seventy percent of its quota.

The campaign in Birmingham. Ala., was held up so as not to interfere with the raising of money for the Home for the Aged in Memphis. Louis Pizits and A. B. Freyer, will direct the campaign.
