The Bulletin’s Biggest Jewish News of the Week Contest offers you a chance to go on a treasure hunt. If you have never tried your hand at this game, here is one that is informative, interesting and with the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the trail.

There is but one difference in this search for the news. There are no hidden clues. All the important news concerning Jews appears in the Bulletin. Decide what you think is the Biggest News, write a letter of not more than 250 words telling why and you are hot on the trail of the $100 in cash prizes. No conditions, no strings. It is a simple letter-writing competition.


It isn’t too late to start on the SIXTH News contest. Entry coupon number two appears today. Number one appeared yesterday. If you have missed the weekend edition, back copies can be secured at the offices of the Jewish Daily Bulletin at 221 Centre street, New York. The four remaining coupons of the six necessary to enter this current news competition will appear on successive days until Friday, December 21, when the news period for the sixth Biggest Jewish News of the Week Contest ends.

All letters on the fifth Biggest News Contest must be brought or mailed to the Bulletin before midnight tonight. The winners of this contest will be announced Friday. They will receive $100 in cash prizes.


All manuscripts must be accompanied by the six entry coupons which have appeared in the Bulletin from Sunday, December 9 to Friday, December 14.

High school students who enter this contest have a chance to win ten dollars and a gold medal for first prize.

Dr. Potter, principal of New Utrecht High, Dr. Lasher, principal of James Madison. Mr. Silverburg, in charge of James Monroe annex, are enthused over the medals. Each asserted that the medals are handsome symbols of this contest and an incentive to all high school students.
