New York (Jun. 16)
An appeal to Jewish communities throughout the country to raise $12,500,000 for the United Jewish Appeal within the next few weeks, in addition to the $115,000,000 which has already been raised thus far in the spring phase of the campaign, was issued today by Henry Morgenthau, Jr., general chairman.
The appeal points out that the U.J.A. must raise “not one penny less than $127,500,000 by July 15th “toward the $170,000,000 national goal for this year, in order to maintain “the minimum program of relief and reconstruction.” Mr. Morgenthau also stressed that it is vitally important that pledges be converted into cash at the earliest possible moment and remitted to the U.J.A. national headquarters to meet “desperate current needs.”
