For the second consecutive year, the B’nai B’rith Wider Scope quota has been oversubscribed in Washington, D. C. The quota was $3,500.

Dr. A. L. Sachar, national director of the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations, opened the campaign in Washington. Morris Cafritz and Harry Viner were co-chairmen, and their chief aides were Morton Wilner, Benjamin Ourisman, Maurice M. Solomon, Dr. Edward Cafritz, Alfred Bennett, Abe Shefferman, David Wiener, I. Lapidus, Maurice Bisgyer, and Benjamin Rich.

Harry Shapiro, national field director of Wider Scope here, reports that the entire District No. 7 is now engaged in Wider Scope campaigns, and that a drive for $25,000 will be launched in Philadelphia on March 24, with Judge Joseph L. Kun as chairman.
