The newly-formed Ohio Zionist Youth League elected the following officers: Irving Hausman of Cleveland, president; David Polish, of Cincinnati; Sam Straus of Akron; Harry Katz of Columbus, and Joseph Papo of Cleveland, vice-presidents; Irving Katz, of Akron, secretary, and Joseph Porath, of Cleveland, treasurer.
