Boston (Aug. 2)
Although the United Jewish Appeal has met with considerable success in the larger cities of New England, some thirty cities and towns of that section have yet to conduct their appeals, officials at headquarters announced today. Many of these cities and towns were canvassed personally last week by Bernard Stone, director of the United Jewish Appeal of New England. He was accompanied by Rabbi Joseph S. Shubow and Eldar Markson.
The tour led by Mr. Stone was undertaken in order to make certain that everyone of the missing communities will have had an opportunity to contribute its share to the alleviation of the misery of the German Jewish refugees and to the upbuilding of the Jewish National Homeland in Palestine, it was stated.
The three men already have visited many communities in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. They reported that they found the active leaders in these various Jewish centers responsive and anxious to cooperate in the enterprise.
