See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A contribution by Felix M. Warburg of $50,000 to the United Palestine Appeal, was announced yesterday by Morris Rothenberg, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the United Palestine Appeal, at a special conference of non-Zionists interested in Palestine, held at the Hotel Ambassador for the purpose of drawing up “concrete plans towards cooperation in the Palestine reconstruction work.”

Mr. Warburg’s gift is the first large response on the part of a non-Zionist since the non-Zionist Conference held in New York last October. Mr. Warburg has in the past contributed to Palestine purposes, notably towards relieving unemployment during the depression of last year, and the building of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. This is his first donation to the United Palestine Appeal.
