Pioneer Women Pledge to Reach $18 Million in Bond Sales by Next August

The Larger National Board of Pioneer Women meeting here, today adopted a goal of $18,000,000 in sales of Israel bonds for the organization’s 18th biennial convention next August.

Mrs. Sidney Leff, president, said the goal would mark the culmination of a 12-year program started in 1951 in response to a plea by Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. She said that Pioneer Women had sold more than $17,000,000 in Israel bonds, and that 20 percent of all “Women of Valor” awards for individual sales of $100,000 in Israel bonds have been received by Pioneer Women members. Mrs. Dvorah Rothbard is Pioneer Women chairman for Israel bonds.
