Linfield of New York, director of the statistical department of the American Jewish Committee; Dr. Alexander M. Dushkin, director of the Bureau of Jewish Education of Chicago; Cecilia Razovsky of New York, secretary of the department of Immigrant Aid of the National Council of Jewish Women; and Isidore Hershfield of Washington, D. C., counsel of the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society of America.
