tral Congregational Church, Brooklyn—May I tender my hearty congratulations upon the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, which I understand is to be celebrated on March 15th at a dinner to be held at the Hotel Commodore in New York City.

John L. Bernstein, New York; Leader of Hias—The Jewish Telegraphic Agency has been a powerful instrument in the gathering of Jewish news and of its dissemination the world over. It has been the means of acquainting the great public with the trend of Jewish affairs and has been an educational factor within Jewish ranks. It has thus rendered a service of the utmost importance to our people.

Grover A. Whalen, John Wanamaker Store, New York—It is with a great deal of pleasure that I endorse the constructive work done for the Jewish community by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in the dissemination of Jewish information throughout the world. Your work has resulted in tearing down walls of prejudice and creating a better understanding of Jewish problems and events.

My best wishes for the continued success of your great Agency.

Hugh Grant Straus, Abraham &Straus, Inc., Brooklyn, N. Y.—On the occasion of the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, I want to extend to it my heartiest congratulations and best wishes.

It is surely doing a splendid work in disseminating unbiased news of the activities of our people throughout the world.

Harry Fischel, New York—As one of your subscribers from the first day of its existence up to the present time, I can safely state that your publication, while small in size, contains more information regarding Jewish life the world over than any of the larger newspapers. I believe that your Bulletin is absolutely indispensable for the reason that at a quick glance one is rapidly informed of the vital news of Jewish life the world over.

Edward L. Bernays, New York—On the occasion of the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, I congratulate you upon the work that you are doing in interpreting one sector of the public to itself and to other sectors of the public.

Such activity is important to the group of the public you cover and to the group to which you interpret it.

Hon. Judge Mitchell May, Federation of Jewish Charities, Brooklyn — The Jewish Telegraphic Agency occupies a unique position in presenting to us each day the important news concerning the Jews all over the world. The information which it offers is unbiased, accurate and succinct. Could the world but know the Jews as they really are,
