The Jewish War Veterans of the United States today completed moving its national headquarters to this city, occupying the newly-acquired Shrine for the Jewish War Dead here.

Addressing a meeting of the JWV national executive committee in the new headquarters today, National Commander Harry T. Madison, of Detroit, called the Shrine “a permanent living memorial to the thousands of Jews who paid the supreme sacrifice for American ideals of freedom and democracy.”
