See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Mortimer L. Schiff announced yesterday at a luncheon in his Oyster Bay home that he had given $48,000 for the extension of the work of the Boy Scouts of America, in compliance with his offer made last year to duplicate $6,000 contributions to the movement in any one of the twelve regions into which the United States is divided for Scout work.

Eight of the regions having met the offer, Mr. Schiff has sent checks to the proper authorities. He expressed the hope that other regions would soon meet the offer.

Mr. Schiff is Chairman of the National Committee on Organization and Field Work.
