Columbus, O., is the first city in the United States with a quota of over $50,000 to complete its final payments to the United Jewish Campaign, a statement from the New York headquarters announces. Having pledged $55,100 to the campaign in May, 1926, final payments do not fall due until May, 1929, but Columbus has remitted to Zone Chairman Edward J. Goodman, a check redeeming its pledge fully six months in advance.
The achievement of Columbus has placed the Central Ohio Zone in the class of those states that have reached the highest percentage of paid-up pledges, the statement declares. The Columbus Zone has paid-up pledges amounting to 75% of its total pledge of over $136,000.
To the number of smaller communities that have so far turned in 100% payments, the community of Plattsburg, N. Y., was recently added, its pledge of $2,120 having been remitted in full to the treasury. Julius Mendelsohn is the chairman and Henry Scheier the treasurer of the Plattsburg campaign.
Among other communities that have reached the 100% mark during the last several weeks, the U. J. C, headquarters announce, are Harrisburg, Pa., which has paid in $26,000 on a total pledge of $25,000; Pontiac, Mich., which pledged and paid $3,613: Poughkeepsie, N. Y., which has paid its full pledge of $7,640; Statesville, N. C., which pledged and paid $2,000; Rome, Ga., which pledged and paid $2,283; and Greenwich, Conn., which paid in full its pledge of $2,000.
