Download PDF for this date

The Women’s American ORT in executive session authorized a remittance of $1,000 to enable Polish Jewish artisans to obtain craftsmen’s certificates permitting them to continue in their trades, Mrs. Florence R. Dolowitz, ORT president, announced yesterday.

The organization now has fulfilled fifty per cent. of its $5,000 quota in this project, a previous $1,500 remittance already having been sent. The ORT hopes to send another $1,000 to the Polish artisans within a few days, Mrs. Dolowitz said.

The fee for craftsmen’s certificates is $8.50 each.
