Download PDF for this date

A boy scout troop attached to the YMHA in this city will have a new country camp this summer thanks to the generosity of a St. Louis Negro, H. D. Robinson, who made the 20-acre site of land available to the Jewish scouts in gratitude for the “treatment received from so many with people, especially the Jews.”

(The National Jewish Welfare Board announced in New York that more than 45,000 youngsters this summer will attend 198 summer country and day camps sponsored by the regional sections of the J.W.B. Appoximately 14, 000 of the children will go 5o 34 country camps maintained by Jewish community centers.)
