Download PDF for this date

Supreme Court Justice Mitchell May, president of the Brooklyn Federation of Jewish Charities, praised the Junior Federation Friday following receipt of a report showing a membership increase in the youth division of almost 200 compared with the same date a year ago.

“Youth has attained a new social consciousness and is enlisting in the work of ameliorative and preventive social work,” Judge May said. “The Juniors are rendering invaluable services to the Federation and to its twenty-five constituent agencies.”

The Junior Federation was organized five years ago for young men and women between the ages of 18 and 30. A drive to bring the membership up to 1,500 is being eonducted. The total enrolment Friday was 1,207.
