UJA Must Measure Deeds in Number of Lives Saved, Warburg Says

Although this year’s campaign of the United Jewish Appeal is “far ahead of our campaigns of other years, the UJA must measure its accomplishments by the number of lives, it saves rather than by the number of dollars it raises.” Edward M. M. Warburg, president of the UJA, said today. He spoke at a luncheon of volunteer leaders of the UJA of Greater New York in honor of Barney Balaban and Samuel D. Leidesdorf, chairmen of the summer telephone campaign. It was announced that the campaign to date has brought in more than $28, 000, 000 for the regular campaign and the Special Survival Fund.
