John Leftin, chairman of the publicity committee for the German Day celebration to be held in the Madison Square Garden on December 6, announced yesterday that invitations had been extended to all German vereins and to the general public to take part in the event.

Leaders of the German Jewish organizations, however, stated that they had received no invitation to the affair.

Approximately 300 members of the Steuben Society and other German vereins crowded one of the meeting rooms in the Teutonia Hall on Wednesday night to complete arrangements for the celebration.
