The basic plan for the permanent organization to succeed the American Jewish Conference will be examined at hearings in various key communities during October and November, it was announced today by Louis Lipsky, chairman of the executive committee of the American Jewish Conference.

Sponsored locally by community councils, welfare funds and leaders in Jewish endeavor, these public hearings are designed to provide an opportunity for communal leaders to give expression to their views on the plan and to suggest necessary amendments. Thus far, hearings have been scheduled in Chicago, October 12; Cleveland, October 19; Detroit, October 12; Los Angeles, October 26; and Philadelphia, November 2. Arrangements are being made for hearings in Boston, Nashville, Newark, New York and San Francisco.

The hearings will be presided over by a committee or panel of prominent local Jewish leaders. Louis Lipsky, chairman of the Conference executive committee, and Dr. Maurice N. Eisendrath, chairman of the committee on future organization, and other members of the Conference executive committee will introduce the discussion by presenting and analyzing the plan.
