Download PDF for this date

At the stroke of midnight tonight the deadline for letters in the second week’s contest of the Jewish Daily Bulletin’s Biggest Jewish News of the Week will be reached. All letters must be postmarked before twelve o’clock tonight to receive consideration by the judges.

Winners in the second contest will be announced in the Friday, November 30, edition of the Bulletin.

Everybody is invited to compete. Readers, college and high school students are eligible for a share in the $100 in cash prizes that is awarded each week to writers of the best 250 word letters on what they consider the Biggest Jewish News of the week and why.


Today’s edition of the Bulletin has coupon number two. Entry blank number one appeared in yesterday’s week-end edition. A new coupon appears on each day of the contest week. These six consecutive coupons must be submitted when the letters are sent to the Bulletin. No letter shall be considered unless all the rules have been followed.

Readers in the non-student group are eligible for three prizes. The first is a cash award of twenty-five dollars, with the second and third prizes, ten dollars and five dollars respectively. College men and women have the same opportunity in their division. The prizes for first, second and third awards are twenty-five, ten, and five dollars, respectively. High school students receive handsome medals in addition to the first three prizes of ten dollars, five dollars and two dollars. A gold medal, silver, and bronze medal is given with first, second, and third awards.

Hundreds of entrants have submitted testimonial letters telling how very interesting they find this contest. Others have said that this is a highly educational and lucrative manner of keeping abreast of the times, especially Jewish current events.

Get into this contest today. Back numbers of the Bulletin may be had at the offices of this publication, 221 Centre street, New York City. Start your biggest-news-of-the-week hunt and win a share in our weekly cash awards of $100.
