In the five months since its 1956 campaign began, the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York has already raised $26,000,000, substantially more than it raised in the entire year 1955. This was reported at a luncheon meeting today in the Plaza Hotel of 250 key volunteer workers and contributors.

Edward R. Murrow was one of the principal speakers at the luncheon. He received from Edward M. M. Warburg, president of the nationwide United Jewish Appeal, an award inscribed: “Presented by the United Jewish Appeal to Edward R. Murrow who has courageously guarded the principles of democracy by focusing the light of truth on the issues of our time.”
