The 36th annual convention of Independent Order Brith Sholom today heard Senator James M. Head of New York declare that “the emergency of today demands the highest degree of loyalty and the highest degree of unity from all of our citizens.”

“We do not want war,” he said. “We reject it as the only method of setting national disputes. But we are not going to let them detract us from the urgent all-out demand for a more than adequate national defense.”

The convention voted $2,500 for the United Jewish Appeal with a recommendation to individual lodges to assist local campaigns. It was decided also to aid the ORT and HIAS.
