Download PDF for this date

Nathan Straus, co-chairman of the Greater New York campaign of the United Jewish Appeal, yesterday announced the acceptance of Samnel Untermyer as honorary chairman of the Westchester committee. Steps are now being taken, he said, to mobilize a large army of volunteer workers throughout the county.

Organizations have already been set up in Mt. Vernon, New Rochelle, Yonkers, White Plains, Mamaroneck, and Porchester. The Yonkers division will complete its organization at a garden party Sunday afternoon, May 19 at Mr. Untermyer’s home, at Greystone, Yonkers.
