The United Palestine Appeal Drive for $300,000 in Chicago was brought to an official close last night with a dinner in honor of Judge Harry A. Fisher, Chairman. Two hundred thousand dollars was raised of which $90,000 was in pledges. The drive is expected to continue unofficially until June 16th, in the expectation that the sum of $50,000 will be raised in the outlying districts. The fifty thousand dollars lacking to the three hundred thousand dollar quota is attributed to bad business and the fact that the non-Zionists are waiting for the J. D. C. action before making their contributions.
