    An appeal has been issue to all the citizens of Cincinnati, to contribute to a fund for the relief, of those made destitute, in the calamity, in Austin, Pa. The matter will be in charge of a Citizens’ Relief Committee, appointed by Mayor Schawb for the purpose, and consisting of the following: Charles E. Roth, George F. Dieterlie, john L.

    The Jewish Community Center is moving forward with plans to implement the transition of key programs away from its facility on Summit Road in Roselawn. The building is currently for sale and may have to be vacated before the new JCC, as part of the Campus Project, is completed.
