NEW YORK (Nov. 23)
The departure of two Americans to serve on the overseas staff of the Joint Distribution Committee was announced today by Joseph C. Hyman, executive director of the J.D.C. Miss Alice R. Emanuel and Herbert Katzki, both of New York, will sail on the Conte di Savoia on Saturday, to join the staff of Morris C. Troper, chairman of the European Executive Council of the J.D.C.
Miss Emanuel, who for many years was secretary to the late Felix M. Warburg, former chairman of the J.D.C., has volunteered her services to work with the J.D.C. overseas staff. Through her association with Mr. Warburg, Miss Emanuel is intimately familiar with the many phases of J.D.C. activities and problems. She is also acquainted with many of the leading European personalities who are active in philanthropic work in Europe. “There can be no question,” Mr. Hyman stated, “that Miss Emanuel’s fine back ground in Jewish affairs makes her extraordinarily well equipped to be of help in overseas work during this critical period. Our organization is grateful for her selfless offer of service.”
Mr. Katzki has been a member of the J.D.C. staff in New York for three years, aing as secretary of its Committee on Refugee Aid in Europe. He will act as an assistant to Mr. Troper in the refugee countries.
