Download PDF for this date

Phi Epsilon Pi, national Jewish college fraternity, at its convention here, voted a donation of $10,000 to the National Farm School, a non-sectarian institution for agricultural training located at Doylestown, Pa., near Philadelphia. The Farm School has an enrollment of about 300 students and was founded by the late Dr. Joseph Krauskopf.

The Rabbi Benjamin Frankel award of $250 was created to help a needy member of the fraternity to complete his education. It was created in memory of Rabbi Frankel, founder of the Hillel Foundation of the B’nai B’rith, who died about two years ago.

All national officers were re-elected for another year and are as follows: Eugene Zacharias, of Atlanta, Ga., president; Louis Fushan, of Pittsburg, Pa., vice-president; Charles Fleishman, of Philadelphia, Pa., secretary; and Emanuel Wirkman, of Philadelphia, Pa., treasurer.
