Download PDF for this date

Harry Guggenheim, American ambassador to Cuba, yesterday cabled from Havana to Dudley D. Sicher, president of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, that he was sending a check for $1,000 to aid the campaign for $2,221,000 now under way to complete the Federation’s 1930 budget of $5,499,000.

Mr. Guggenheim said in his cablegram:

“In times of economic stress, when other forms of enterprise may reduce their activities, the charitable organizations cannot be permitted any such reduction.”
