Publishers to Participate in Presentation of Award to JTA Thursday

A delegation of American Jewish editors will attend the 50th anniversary luncheon of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on Thursday at the Americana Hotel to participate in presentation of an award to JTA “for distinguished service to American Jewish journalism.”

The award will be presented in behalf of the American Jewish Press Association by its president, Adolph Rosenberg, Editor and Publisher of the Southern Israelite of Atlanta. Its presentation will be part of a program in which two outstanding personalities on the Jewish communal scene, J. D. Weiler of New York, and Louis J. Fox, of Baltimore, will assay the role of JTA in American Jewish life.

Reservations for the luncheon are being accepted at the JTA office from individuals not already included in organizational group seatings.
