Governor Names 10 Jews to Jersey Washington Fete Body

Governor Larson tonight added twenty-seven persons, among them ten Jews, to the 77 previously named as members of the state committee for the Washington Bicentennial Celebration next year. The Governor’s action came as a climax to a threatened state-wide protest on the part of the Jewish citizens of the state because they were not represented among the original 77 appointees. The Italian, Polish and Negro elements who also were ignored, also get representation.

The Jews named are: Louis V. Aronson, Louis Bamberger, Rabbi Solomon Foster, Louis Hood and Rev. Joseph Schulman, all of Newark; Judge Morris E. Barison, Jersey City; Mayor Harry Bacharach, Joseph B. Perskie and Rabbi Henry Fischer, of Atlantic City; and John J. Stamler, of Elizabeth.
