A budget of $1, 310,000 was adopted here today by the 26th annual convention of the Women’s Mizrachi Organization of America by the more than 1, 000 delegates at the parley. The budget will cover the organization’s activities in this country and Israel for 1952.

The conference, which concludes tomorrow, also set a goal of selling $1,500,000 worth of state of Israel bonds. A half-million dollars worth has already been sold. The budget allocations include $485, 000 for Youth Aliyah and child restoration work in Israel; $320,000 for social service, settlement house work and vocational training of immigrants in Israel; $200, 000 for the Jewish National Fund, part of which will be used for completion of the organization’s Truman Forest, in honor of the President, and $305,000 for supplies to Israel, educational and cultural work among American youth, and other activities.
