A quota of $98,500 has been set for the Emergency Allied Jewish Campaign of the Jewish Welfare Federation, to be held June 4 to 14.

Announcement of the quota is made by Clarence H. Enggass, president of the Federation and co-chairman with Fred M. Butzel of the steering committee of the campaign. According to Mr. Enggass, the quota is based on the minimum budgets of nine Detroit Jewish agencies and includes funds for local relief purposes only.

At least one-fourth of the campaign fund will go to the Emergency Unemployment Relief Council, and other agencies which are beneficiaries in the drive are: Fresh Air Camp, Hebrew Free Loan Association, Hospital Fund of North End Clinic, House of Shelter, Jewish Old Folks’ Home, Mothers’ Clinic, New Jewish Center, and United Hebrew Schools.
