Los Angeles and adjacent towns will raise $250,000 for the Jewish National Fund in the coming twelve months, it was decided here at the annual conference of the regional Jewish National Fund.

Addressing the meeting, Rep. Emanual Celler, who has been touring the Pacific Coast for the JNF, condemned the British Government for its refusal to abrogate the White Paper, and open Palestine to Jewish immigration, pointing out that the Jews never accepted the White Paper, Just as they never accepted the Nuremberg Laws.
