Download PDF for this date

Praise for the devotion with which representatives of the Joint Distribution Committee are conducting their relief work for thousands of refugees in Japanese-occupied Shanghai is contained in a wireless report sent from the S.S. Gripsholm by Morris J. Harris and James D. White, correspondents of the Associated Press now on their way from Shanghai back to the United States. The report estimates that 21,000 Jewish refugees are now helpless in Shanghai.
