One-half the total budget will be devoted to Jewish center work while one-third will be spent on services to the armed forces. The JWB services 259 centers in over 200 communities. Irving Edison, chairman of the St. Louis JWB council, was re-elected chairman for 1947 and was once again named to head the organization’s fund raising division.
