Contributions totalling $450,000 were made yesterday to the United Jewish Appeal at a regional conference in Rochester of western New York Jewish communities. The checks were presented towards the $25,000,000 emergency cash drive now being conducted by the UJA.

The final results of the drive will be announced in Cleveland next Sunday at a National Report Conference called by the UJA to map new fund-raising measures to assure the continuation of urgent refugee aid programs in Israel and other parts of the world.
