Members of all the New York chapters of Junior Hadassah are selling time at “three cents a second” in a novel campaign to raise funds for three projects which have their support: the Children’s Village, Pardess Anna and the Nurses’ Training School.

The goal is to sell each of the 43,200 seconds of a twenty-four hour day. Each buyer will have his name listed and some time in May a clock will be wound up and permitted to run itself out. The person’s name listed next to the hour, minute and second at which the clock stops will be given a prize of $25.

Miss Lillian Glass is chairman of the campaign. Miss Leah Weisberger is chairman of the region.
