The response of the Jewish people of New York City to the United National Clothing Collection was praised yesterday by Grover A. Whalen, Local chairman of the drive, who said it “is one of the most magnificient things I have ever seen.”

He cited a report from the Joint Distribution Committee, a participating agency in the drive that has obtained the cooperation of all major Jewish groups throughout the nation, and from local collection vice-chairmen, Rabbi A. M. Heller and Rabbi David De Sola Pool.
