Detroit Allied Jewish Campaigners Commence
Report Meetings; Honor Women Today
Report meetings to check on the
continuing progress of the 1966
Allied Jewish Campaign will begin
with a luncheon at campaign head-
quarters, 163 Madison, honoring
the women's division.
The campaign, which was offi-
cially launched a week ago
Wednesday, is now in full swing
in the drive to achieve more than
$5,600,000 in pledges—a total that
would make 1966 one of the big-
est years in campaign history.

reach of hard working campaign-

of the women's division will be
the campaign chairman, Mrs. Ar-
thur H. Rice, who has led her divi-
sion to a pre-opening achievement
figure of $641,449, encompassing
5,806 pledges. This represents 97
per cent of the 1965 women's divi-
sion achievement. "With several
thousand pledges yet to go, we feel
certain we can count on a substan-
tial percentage of increase over
