Either the Zionist Organization of America will pay off or take means to pay off the $16,000 deficit of Young Judaea, or the latter body will cease functioning in its present antonomous state, and once more become a problem for the Z. O. A. This opinion was expressed here tonight at the opening of the Twentieth Anniversary Convention of Young Judaea, at the Scarboro Hotel.

Samuel J. Borowsky, Executive Chairman, in his report to the delegates, stated that Administrative Committee of Z. O. A. has referred the matter of meeting the deficit to the forthcoming convention at Detroit.

During the year there has been a decrease in number of registered clubs, from 404 to 374, although New York City has gained 21 new registered clubs. Besides there are about 200 not affiliated clubs, he reported.
