Download PDF for this date

Ten members of the Jewish community hero were placed on “trial” “before a Jewish Community Court for net contributing to the United Jewish Campaign in proportion to their means. Nine of the “defendants” immediately promised to make the contributions expected of them.

A schedules trial of another group of ten Jews will probably be called off in view of the effect of the “trial” of the first ten. The United Jewish Campaign goal is four million pesos for local and overseas Jewish needs.
