All letters on the third Biggest Jewish News of the Week contest must be brought or mailed to the offices of the Jewish Daily Bulletin before twelve o’clock tonight.

Winners in the third contest will be announced in the Friday, December 7, edition of the Jewish Daily Bulletin.

Everybody is invited to compete. There is no age limit. All readers and college and high school students are eligible. One hundred dollars in cash prizes await the writers of the best 250-word letters on the Biggest Jewish News of the week.

Since the Bulletin did not appear on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, only five coupons are necessary to enter the third contest. The five coupons with the contest letter must be mailed before midnight tonight.


Contest number four began in the week-end edition yesterday. Today’s issue of the Bulletin contains coupon number two. 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 manuscript shall be considered unless all the rules have been followed.

High school students win ten dollars and a gold medal for first prize; five dollars and a silver medal for second prize; and two dollars and a bronze medal for third prize.

College students who enter are eligible for a first prize of twenty-five dollars; a second of ten dollars and a third of five dollars.

The general public is eligible for three cash prizes. First prize is twenty-five dollars for the winning letter, while ten dollars and five dollars will be awarded for second and third prizes respectively.

Get into this contest today. Back numbers of any edition of the Bulletin may be secured at the offices of the publication, 221 Center street, N. Y. C. Start your biggest – news – of – the week letter and win a share in our weekly cash awards of $100.
