Campaign To Establish The
Woodrow Wilson Foundation
The Woodrow Wilson Foundation is
' created by public subscription in re
cognition of the national and inter
national services of Woodrow Wilson,
twice President of the United States,
who furthered the cause of human
freedom and was instrumental in
pointing out effective methods for the
cooperation of the liberal forces of
mankind throughout the world.
The Award of Awards from the in
come of the Foundation will be made
from time to time by a nationally
constituted committee to the indi
vidual or group that has rendered,
within a specified period, meritorious
service to democracy, public welfare,
liberal thought or peace through jus
To endow the Foundation a fund of
$1,000,000 or more is to be raised.
Every person who admires Mr. Wil
son and who believes in the principles
that he upheld will, through contrib
uting, be given an opportunity to par
ticipate in the founding of the Award.
Contributions are sought from every
one who desires to honor a great Am
erican and to create a method where
by public service shall be encouraged
and conspicuously recognized in this
and future generations. Gifts from
a great number of Americans will
afford a finer tribute to Mr. Wilson's
leadership than simply large contrib
utions from a limited number. In
keeping with the character of the
man to whom this tribute is to be
paid it is proposed to maintain the
undertaking on an essentially demo
cratic basis.
January 15th, 1922, has been set as
the opening day of the campaign to
establish the Foundation. Beginning
Monday, January 16th, canvassing
will be conducted throughout the
week, to continue until the work of
raising the fund is accomplished.
A certifiate, designed by an artist
of note will be presented to ev
ticipated in the founding of the
The Committee is able to announce
that every dollar received by the Na
tional Treasurer will go toward the
endowment of the Woodrow Wilson
Award. The expenses of both na
tional and state headquarters have
been met by groups of friends so
that no part of the subscriptions will
be used for defraying these expenses.
All funds, as received at National
Headquarters, will be invested in
United States Government securities.
The National Organization.
A National Committee, composed
of more than 250 representative men
and women of the country, are spon
sors for the movement. Franklin D.
Roosevelt is Chairman.
An Executive Committee carries
out the policies approved by the Na
tional Committee, appoints the Cam
paign Committee and other commit
tees, and directs the operation of the
campaign. Cleveland H. Dodge is
Chairman of the Executive Commit
Assisting the Executive Committee
are certain central committees, which
include the Women's Committee, Miss
Virginia Potter, chairman; the Edu
cational Committee, Prof. Stephen P.
Duggan, chairman; the Committee on
Churches, Rev. Frederick Lynch,
chairman; the Publicity Committee,
Frank I Cobb, chairman; and the
Founders Committee which is re
sponsible for obtaining large con
tributions to the Foundation.
The Louisiana State Organization
has been formed with headquarters
at Baton Rouge, Col. A. T. Prescott,
chairman. Contributions may be sent

At a meeting of the congregation
of B'nai Israel, Rabbi Harold Rein
hart was re-elected for a further
period of three years.
Dr. Reinhart was born in Portland,
Oregon, where he received his gram
mar and high school education. He
then took a course in the University
of Cincinnati. His early religious
training was under the noted Dr.
Stephen S. Wise and he afterwards
attended the Hebrew Union College,
where he was ordained a Rabbi.
Dr. Reinhart's re-election is en
dorsed by the community, as he has
become very popular with all classes
in Baton Rouge. He is broadminded,
intellectual and well fitted to fill the
position as Rabbia of B'nai Israel. He
is earnest and deeply interested in
all charitable works and is an en
thusiastic member of the Citizen's
League and president of the Anti-Tu
berculosis League, in which he is a
leading factor.
B'nai Israel is to be congratulated
upon having a leader such.as Rabbi
Reinhart in their midst.

(By Mrs. A. G. Reed, President Lou.
isiana Federation Women's Clubs).
Department chairmen and division
chairmen in the federation will be
changed as little as possible during
the coming year. The new president
has not had the opportunity of
knowing the club women of the state
as well as the retiring president, and
only such changes will be made from
time to time as seem necessary for
expedient handling of the work; or
as are made necessary by resignation
or the expiration of the term of office.
The chairman of the Department of
Citizenship is Mrs. T. F. Porter of
Lake Charles. Practically every fed
erated club did some work in citizen
ship last year. Mrs. Porter will be
able to help those who wish to do this
work with leaflets and outlines. Un
der this department Mrs. Virgil
Brown will continue to do work in
. Americanization which she has so
efficiently conducted in the past, and
plans are being made to put a good
worker in the division of Community
Service, particularly directed toward
the extension of the Girl Scout work.
