Last Thursday evening, at the Winding Hollow Country Club, this group otticlally launched its in-14 campaign for the Uni¬ ted .lewish Fund ut Columbus. ^rhe meeting was opened with the invocation by Eugene Boro¬ witz. local student at the He brew Union College, Cincinnati. Greetings were extended by Dave Goklsmith, Sr. Advisor to the .Ir. Division: I. W. Garek, Organization Chairman of the V. .1. !•'.: Simon Lazarus, Trea.s- urer of tho ll. J. F.; Mrs. Wm.

We extend Our apologies to these fine wo¬ men who are endeavouring to eontrlhntc their share lo Ihe United .fewlsh Fund ef¬ fort. Things are really humming at the United Jcvvish Fund offices, 150 E. Broad Street. Several hundred men, women and the Youth group, who have already volunteer¬ ed their aid as workers in this year's campaign, are now actively engaged in securing the largest quota necessary lo meet the great needs of the United Jewish Fund beneficiaries. Adopting a slo¬ gan "Ceiling Unlimited" Columbus has already to date demonstrated double generosity in this, the greatest un¬ dertaking in the history of the local Jewish community. There is every indication, according to Robert Schiff, General Chairman, that all men. Women and the Youth in our city realize that this drive is to meet the most cru¬ cial crisis in Jewish history — to provide .$32,000,000 for Ihe far-flung rescue and reconstruction activities of the agencies ot the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Over¬ seas Needs and Palestine. That as Americans and as Jews, we must bear the responsibility for the defense and survival of large sections of our people. There is no doubt, Mr. Schiff said, that the progress of the world con¬ flict has forcefully demonstrated that our own destiny and future and our own freedom and happiness are not isolated from the fate of our people overseas. Pledging tireless effort on the part of women worker.^ in the drive, Mrs. William Schiff, Chairman of Ihe Women's Di. vision, pointed out the vast scope of the effort of which Ihe I'nited .lewish I'und cam¬ paign is a vital part, and, how essential il was tor the .lewish Women of Columbus to raise a record quota for this year "Although every branch of the drive is ot vital impoptance, we of the Women's division know that the success oi- fail, ure of the campaign will de¬ pend to a major extent on what oiu' workers accomplish. "We re(|uest two Ih'ings of every person whom a Women's Di\'ision representative calls upon. First, that she remember the great cause which the Uni¬ ted .lewish Fund worker repre¬ sents, and therefor'e gi\e her a l>rompl attd courteous recep¬ tion Second, that she realize the vasily greater need wiii^-h this past year of war has hrought about, and llllls cheer¬ fully increa.se her contriliution far over the amount subscrit)ed last year", Mrs. Schiff concltid- ed. General Chairman Robert W. Schiff expre.s.sed confidence that his drive army will go over Ihe top and bring in the largest amount ever sub.scrllied. "It's a ca.se of 'iriust'." he told campaign workers this week, ".lewish communities all over the counlry have conducled or are conducting intensive drives with (|Uotas set up far ahead of funds previously .sought. The success re|)orted trom oth. er communities are particular¬ ly heartening inasmuch as they indicate Hie awakening of American Jews to the enormity of their responsibility for sav¬ ing from complete destruction millions ot Jews in Europe, re¬ settling them in olher lands and making productive citizens of refugees arriving in this counlry, Columbus can ttnd must raise its tiuota, for our help means the difference be¬ tween life and tieath to those over there". Mr. Schiff urged contribu¬ tors to give workers the utmost consideration, declaring that the soUvilors are giving ot their time, money and effort In a great humanitarian work. John L. Lewis' Paper Attacks Herbert Lehman M'lW VORK (.IPSl —Herbert II. Lehman, director general of the l'nitecl .Vations Relief and Rehabilitation .•Vdminislra tion. which is uniler tire now in Congre.ss, is the target of an attack by the I'liiled Mine \\'orkers ,lournal, ,lohn L. Lew¬ is's , piit/licaiion. The paper, using language reminiscent of Fiilher Coughlin's Social .lus. tice and of its pre<lecessors, the Dearborn Independent, reaches 450,000 miners. Former Governor Lehman anxl his family are descrihetl as the sinister irower behind "an invisible government . . . It's a global web and the strands that tie It at No. 1 William St. (Lehman's address) run right into Washington at many IJOints . . . Scores, if not hun dreds, of the government law- yers and tiiueaucrats who are exectiting the policies of the in\'isible government, at home and abroad, are men suggested for their Jobs by Frankfurt "The Jewish yt)ulh ot Colum. bus has a special concern in the outcome ot the campaign", Mar¬ jorie Wasserstrom, Jr. Division chairman, stated, "since the greatest sufferers from the Nazi oppression are the youth. We know that the tjverseas agencies direct their major ae¬ tivilies towarti helping the .youth, and our response will be therefore in the nature of a meaningful contribution."
