J.n.b. Cuts by Ten Percent Amount It Will Seek from U.S. Jews During 1948

The National Jewish Welfare Board announced to## that it has cut by ten percent the amount it will seek from the American Jewish community in 1948. Its revised budget totals $1,324,900.

This reduction results from the fact that USO, which ceases active operations December 31, 1947, has undertaken to give J.W.B. in 1948 the sum of $152,900 to ##ry out in 1948 former USO operations already provided for in JWB’s 1948 budget. J.W.B. has therefore subtracted this anticipated sum of $152,900 from the original ##ount it planned to raise.
