David A. Croll, local Jewish attorney, was yesterday elected mayor of the city in the municipal elections, thus making him the second Jew to be chief executive of a Canadian municipality. Windsor has a Jewish population of about 1,000. Croll, who is 30 years old, is president of the Windsor Talmud Torah, a member of the board of directors of the Shaar Hashomayim synagogue and a leader in every communal enterprise.

He is now the central figure in a movement to organize a Jewish philanthropy federation in Windsor. Mrs. Croll, a former Detroit girl, is president of the Windsor Hadassah.
