From the enthusiasm and inter¬ est shown it signalized the start of what Is expected to be the most intensive philanthropic effort ever carried bn by the Jewish women of this city, Every preliminary aspect of this great humanitarian drive, according to Mrs. Wm. Schlff, Chairman of the Women's Dlvl. sion, has moved forward, with the organization ot the largest gi'oup of workers enrolled for a thorough canvass of every Jew¬ ish prospect in Columbus.

Hirschsprung, Opening Prayer ; Mrs. Wm. Schlff, Greetings; Mrs. Simon Lazarus, Introduction of speak¬ er; Rabbi Harry Kaplan, mess¬ age on "Sacrifice in Women Oiving"; Mrs. E.' J.

(Continued from Page Four) History vvas written in Columbus last Tuesday night, vvhen at the annual dinner to observe the formal opening of the 1944 United Jewish Funtl Campaign, an all time rec¬ ord was achieved in increased subscriptions from some 2,';0 in attendance. The fine spirit of the local Jewish com.^ munity and its traditional generosity was displayed graphi¬ cally when following the appeals of Simon Lazarus and Robert W. Schiff, the group spontaneously incrcasesd their contributions generously, and in keeping with the tremend¬ ously increased needs for rescue of the persecuted millions of our people overseas. In many instances even 50 and 100 per cent increases were made by contributors. The most touching scene during the evening was when Mr. Lazarus, who, for 18 years has served the Fund as treasurer, called for a moment of silent prayer on behalf of K. J. Schanfarber who, on account of illness, could not at¬ tend this function, an event which has meant so much to this dynamic leader of this greatest achievement in Colum¬ bus Jewish life. That Columbus Jewry does appreciate the efforts of this outstanding citizen and wishes him a speedy recovery, was truly indicated by the largest sum ever raised at any one meeting.

Every one understood that what was once a mere emotional appeal, had now become a sacred duty:— to help maintain organizations that were endeavoring to re¬ lieve suffering, to wipe out ty¬ ranny* -nnd anti-Semitism that were trying to destroy Iho very principles which Judaism repre¬ sented. "1944 presents the gi'avest crisis ever faced by the world and we must recognize our in¬ dividual responsibilities and courageously shoulder our obli¬ gations. Tho.se present at the dinner were aware of this fact and resixmded accordingly", Mr. Schlff said. Campaign chairman Schiff also i.>isued a call to tho members of the community to volunteer their .services In the 1044 United Jewish Fund Cam|)algn. These volunteers, Mr. Schlff explained, are urgently needed to fill positions made vacant by men and women who have gone Into the armed forces of the country. When completed, the army of volunteers should con¬ sist of .some 2.'i0 men and v?bmen serving In the Men's Division, the Women's Division and the Youth Division. "The tremendous demand be¬ ing made upon us by the various agencies. Included In the United Jewish Ap|5eal, representing the Joint Distribution Committee, the United Palestine Appeal and the National Refugee Service, makes it laecessary for us to bend every effort with a view to obtaining maximum cojitrlbu- tlons from every Jew in Colum¬ hus", Mr. Schlff concluded.
