Download PDF for this date

The United Hias Service, the world-wide Jewish migration aid agency, has re-elected Carlos L. Israels as its president and elected other officers at a meeting of its board of directors. Mr. Israels has been a philanthropic leader for more than 30 years.

The board elected Charles Stern, a Wall Street broker, as vice president. Gaynor L. Jacobson was re-elected executive vice president; Harold Friedman was re-elected treasurer; Max Orenstein and Edward H. Weinberg were named associate treasurers; Stanley Marks, secretary; Thomas H. Baer and Carl Glick, associate secretaries; and Harry M. Friedman, assistant secretary and comptroller.

The office of chairman of the national council was left vacant for a year in memory of the late Edwin Rosenberg who had previously filled it. Mr. Rosenberg had been instrumental in creating the United Hias Service through a merger in 1954 between Hias, the overseas migration services of the Joint Distribution Committee and the United Service for New Americans. Daniel G. Ross was elected vice chairman of the national council.
