Polish Jews to Air Need for Campaign

The question whether the Polish Jews in America should start an independent campaign for funds for the relief of Jews in Poland will be discussed here at the twenty-seventh annual convention of the Federation of Polish Jews in America. The convention will open Saturday at the Clarendon-Brunswick Hotel.

Four hundred delegates from all over the country are expected to attend. Another question to be taken up will be the calling of a world conference of Federations of Polish Jews to be held in London.

The convention will be addressed by Benjamin Winter, president of the Federation; Z. Tygel, executive director; Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Alexander Kahn and others. The Polish Ambassador to the United States is expected to be present.
