Download PDF for this date

A Spring festival and musicale were held in the Hotel Pierre today to augment funds being raised to build a protective stone wall around the Palestine Lighthouse in Aid of the Blind in Jerusalem. Speakers included Dr. Will Durant, Maurice Hindus, Maurice Levin, Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Dr. David de Sola Pool.


It was incorrectly stated in Monday’s Paris report on the American Jewish Joint Reconstruction Foundation that the foundation conducts its activities through a chain of 762,000 cooperative loan banks in eleven countries. The figure should have read 672.
