United Israel Drive in Argentina Raises over 60 Percent of Sum Collected Last Year

The United Israel Campaign in this country announced today that it has raised more than 60 percent of the total sum collected for the Jewish state last year. The youth division of the drive launched an intensified effort for funds this week among Zionist youth groups.

A non-party Zionist organization of Jews originating from central Europe–the “The odor Herzl Gesklschaft”–decide that any of its members who failed to contribute to the united drive for Israel would be expelled. A report from the city of Tucuman, capital of the northern province of the same name, said that the chairman of a Communist-sponsored drive for Israel had been barred from the synagogue there on the ground that he was “sabotaging the United Israel Campaign.”
