Australian Jews Decide to Turn All Overseas Relief Funds over to J.D.C.

All funds raised by Australian Jews for overseas relief will be placed at the disposal of the Joint Distribution Committee, it was decided today at a meeting of Jewish welfare fund officials.

The opening campaign in Melbourne has already netted about $65,000 for overseas relief and it is reported that pledges of $40,000 have been obtained in the state of Victoria. A nation-wide campaign for relief funds will soon be launched.
