- 2 pages. Doroshkin indicates again that the Los Angeles operations has run out of funds for salaries and rent, and needs their national office subsidy immediately. Appreciates the check sent by Saltzman for $3,400 but that is not the same as a national office monthly subsidy. Has run the accounts by Mr. Karlin (state auditor?) as requested. Right now the hold up is that Mr. Korn does not want to do an affidavit; letter is being sent under separate cover. Lodges 493 and 660 have been combined and dues are being collected. Best wishes for the New Year.
- The campaign to expel the JPFO from the LA Jewish Community Council started in 1949, lasted 4 years and also involved the Workmen’s Circle [Arbiter Ring].
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
