Morris A. Gray, Poale Zion leader, was elected alderman on the Labor ticket in yesterday’s municipal elections here. He is the first Russian-born Jew to be elected to the local city council. Gray has been active in local Jewish communal affairs, particularly as secretary of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society since its inception.

Mrs. Hart Green, wife of a local Jewish attorney, was elected to the school board while Marcus Hyman, Jewish lawyer, was the defeated candidate for mayor, receiving 16,000 votes to 26,000 for his opponent, the incumbent.
