Mortimer Fleishhacker Broadcasts Relief Appeal

Download PDF for this date

Mortimer Fleishhacker, of San Francisco, member of the Welfare and Relief Mobilization of 1932, took part in a coast to coast broadcast in behalf of the Committee.

Mr. Fleishhacker appealed for support of the social services which supply primary needs and for the preventive clinics for the protection of public health.

“These services are not frills,” he said. “They are an essential part of what is known as American standards. Next in importance to food itself which must be given to preserve life, are these no less tangible necessities which make life worth living.”
