Activities of the local Palestine Appeal Committee are growing more numerous and already pledges totalling more than $150,000 to the half million dollar drive have been raised.

Morris Rissman is chairman of a Building Trade Committee which is composed of I. Coburn, Bernard Ruekberg, Nick Lippert, Morris Pearlman, A. Himmelblau and B. Ruttenberg and which has undertaken to raise a minimum of $15,000 and probably $25,000 among the city’s Jewish builders, architects and allied professions.

Emil Braude heads the jewelers group which seeks $25,000 from its group. Martin Fox is secretary.

Judge Julian W. Mack and Maurice Samuel will address other group meetings, scheduled for the first part of next week at various of the city hotels on the north, west and south sides.
