HONDH The B'nal B'rith Women's chapter of Columbus has been designated to sell U. S. Security Bonds, a.s part of the Security Loan Campaign which has been underway nationally since April 15 (until June 30). Mrs. Ray Kahn is, chairman of the local drive for the B.B. Women. The Chapter offers the worthy suggestion that Security Bonds would make a highly practical graduation and confirmalion gift. Mrs. Kahn and her committee win be more than willing to do all the transactliKg and "deliv¬ ery" work In purchasing these bonds. Just ca-ll any of the fol- in the PnlpNtlnr picture spur¬ ring drivo-workors on to re¬ newed efforts and incentive in this crucial phase of the local UJF campaign, It was also revealed that more than 700 subscription cards are as yet not turned In lo the UJF offices, 1,50 e; Broad St. "Seven hundred pledge cards with no gifts reported Is an evi¬ dence that the ENTIRE Jewish community has not yet played its part in this "destiny cam¬ paign," stated Leo Yassenoff, general chairman. "Surely, no ime should, nor wants to be, left out of this great life-saving ef¬ fort," added Mr. Yassenoff. Every worker must take care of the cards assigned to him. Any pro.specllve giver who has not been called upon, should telephone MAln 4833 fbr the name of the worker who has been assigned his card. "In this manner," concluded Mr. Yas¬ senoff, "we can complete the drive at an early date, ami with the maximum of ilesperately- needed pledges!"

The eight American commu¬ nities which added a brilliant t-hapter to .lewish histor-y witli their -'Dollars of Destiny" were. Philaileiiihia, Detroil, Pittsburgh, Baltimore. Washington. Indian¬ aiiolis, Pes Moines and Dallas. Scores of other communities, now in the Initial phase of their Spring ilrlves, were report- ¦ ed to ho taking steps to follow the hisuiric ejfaniples of these cities. ¦> The needs ai'e as great as ever before. Hundreds of thou¬ sands of .lews In the D.P. camps and tn Europe nriuet be helped. Thousands of Jews have arrived In Palestine In January, Febru- rary and March. Tbous'ands, - more will arrive regardless of what happens. (Continued on Page Four) the appearance of guest speaker Dr. Warren G. Harding III.
