Mrs. Vogelman Gives $1,000 to Refugee Aid on Eve of Departure

A contribution of $1,000 toward the maintenance of German Jewish children in Palestine was announced by Mrs. Philip Vogelman, treasurer of the Women’s Emergency Council, on the eve of her departure Saturday for Europe to make a study of the refugee situation.

A luncheon given Mrs. Vogelman by the Council, of which Mrs. Louis Lipsky is president, was the occasion for her announcement. During the past year Mrs. Vogelman had been one of the most active workers in the Council’s efforts to raise funds to be devoted entirely to the transfer of German Jewish children to the Jewish National Home. Mrs. Vogelman served with the refugee aid committee in Paris last year.
