See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish students of the Citizens’ Military Training Camp at Fort McKinley, Maine, met recently to reorganize the Jewish Brotherhood of the C. M. T. C. which students of last year’s camp started. The C. M. T. C. at Fort McKinley this year includes about 80 Jewish young men, many of whom were there last year and were members of the Brotherhood. Judge Max L. Pinansk, acting chaplain, was elected as advisor and Lawrence Appleman, of Brookline, Mass. a student in D Company, was chosen president.

Arrangements have been made for services for the Jewish youths from Missouri. Kansas and Arkansas, attending the C. M. T. C. at Fort Leavenworth, Texas. The services, which will be held each Sunday morning at 9 o’clock at the recreational tent, will be conducted by Rabbi I. J. Sarasohn under the auspices of the Jewish Welfare Board, of which he is the local representative.
