Survivors' Federation
Marks 25th Year Here


Experienced ..






NEW YORK (JTA)—The Ameri-
can Federation of Jews from Cen-
tral Europe celebrated its 25th
anniversary here Sunday at a gath-
ering addressed by Dr. Nahum
Goldmann, president of the World
Jewish Congress, and Dr. Joachim
Prinz, chairman of the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
Comprising some 40 affiliated or-
ganizations of immigrants from
Central Europe, the federation has
represented the rights and interests
of survivors of the Nazi holocaust
coming from Central Europe. Un-
der the federation's sponsorship, a
network of mutual aid societies
and social welfare agencies was
organized and, in close coopera-
tion with the general community,
set on a path of integration into
the social, cultural and economic
life in this country,


We endorse and urge your support for the election of Mary Barker and Dr. Remus G. Robinson for the
Detroit Board of Education.
The records of both candidates in support of education is an outstanding one. As a member of the
Board for 12 years Dr. Robinson has fought for improved educational opportunities in all parts of our
tity. Mrs. Barker as President of the Detroit P.T.A. and in other capacities has helped lead the kind
of citizens involvement that is gaining more state fiscal aid as a more just and needed increase in
support of our schools.
For responsible and effective Board of Education representation elect Mary L. Barker and Dr. Remus
C. Robinson.
