Total of 175,000 Children Re
ceive Regular Daily
! New York, Sept. 17. Starving
Jewish children of Poland are re
ceiving 178,800 rations daily from
the bumper cargoes of the "Demo
cracy" and the "Westward Ho," the
relief shops sent overseas by the
American Jewish relief agencies for
the destitute war sufferers.
How the food was distributed
throughout the various districts was
explained in a report from Dr.
Boris Bogen to the Joint Dlstrlbu
tion Committee, which has Just been
made public here by the American
Jewish Belief Committee. Dr. Bo
gen is head of all American Jewish
relief work in Poland.
The actual cost of the ration Which
each Jewish child receives amounts
to about one mark a day, so that the
total amount expended for feeding
Jewish children is a little more than
178,000 marks a day or approxi
mately 5,250,000 marks a month.
The above, according to Dr. Bogen,
represents only the relief distributed
up to June. Plans for the rest of
the year call for increased expendi
tures for a larger number of chil
dren and it is estimated that 350,-
000 marks daily are now being spent
to save the lives and health of as
piany Jewish kiddies.
"We are almost finished with the
distribution of the cargo of the
•Democracy,' consisting of medical
supplies, soap and general supplies,
Bogen's report states. "When the
final report comes in we shall find
that the distribution was quite satls
-1 factory. At present we are just be
ginning the distribution of the sec
ond "Westward Ho" cargo. A con
siderable portion has been given to
the children's relief and the results
are very satisfactory."
Following is a list of the points
and the amounts of rations distrib
Warsaw, city, 18,000 rations per
day; Warsaw district, 1,750; Lodz,

and Lublin district, 32.000; Brest

To continue the regular distribu
tion of supplies to these starving
youngsters will require additional
i funds and it is to swell the great
humanity fund that the American
Jewish Relief Committee and kin
dred organizations are planning a
series of drives throughout the
country this fall.
