In Grand Porks, the Jews of the
c-ity already have raised approximate
ly $4,000. This is an unusuaJly fine
showing, in view of the fact that there
are only about seventy-fivo Jewish
families in Grand Forks. The district
quota is $S,000. and it is believed that
that amount will be oversubscribed.
Mass Meeting Held.
'As a means of stimulating interest
in-the drive here, a mass meeting was
held Sunday afternoon at the New
Grand theater. Gustavus L/oevenger,

having lived in that portion of Europe
where contending armies marched
back and forth time after time, leav

Appeals for Children.
Mr. Loevenger said he appealed to
Grand Forks people for aid for the
destitute of Russia, Poland. Austria,
Hungary, Rumania and the Ukraine.
The children of those countries,
starving, cold, naked and diseased, are
reaching out their hands to you for
crust of bread," be said.
"Hundreds of thousands of these
helpless children are appealing to
America for shelter, for food and pro
tection and American people are be
ing asked to help, heal.and save," the
The sufferers not only must be giv
en the necessary food to keep them
from, starving, he said, but they also
must be given soap and water, or the
means of keeping clean, and thereby
stamping out disease. The Jewish
relief committee Is asking for fourteen
million dollars from the American
people to assist in bettering the con
ditions of the persecuted and suffer
ing Jews. More will be needed, Mr-.
Loevenger said, because there will be
the continued' problem, not only of
keeping them from starvation and
freezing but also of reconstruction,
and of placing the sufferers on a foot
ing where they can help themselves.
