Download PDF for this date

Wilmington, Del., and Lancaster, Pa., will launch campaigns this evening for the United Jewish Appeal, Felix M. Warburg, national chairman, announced here yesterday.

In Wilmington, where the campaign has taken the form of a non-sectarian effort with Jews and non-Jews participating, the opening dinner will be addressed by Dr. Henry Smith Leiper, a prominent figure in the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, who returned from a protracted stay in Germany last week. His address will be a first-hand account of his observations of conditions in that country and also of his interviews with refugees in other lands. The campaign in Wilmington is headed by David Snellenburg as chairman and William K. Ayres, a non-Jew, as treasurer.
