To the communication received from the american arbitration association relating to the matter of the election of delegates from the United states for the 28th world zionist Congress i have expressed my feelings on this subject to rabbi Israel Miller president of the american zionist association and am sending you copy of this letter to rabbi Miller for publication in your Freedom of the press Section. Edwin w. Meyers 29 Silver Birch Lane Pearl River . I was appalled rabbi Miller. To receive in the mail a series of letters and a ballot to be returned to the american afro i t r a t i o n association All relating to the upcoming election to determine the new elate of officers. At a crucial period of time Euch As this when every charitable organization cries out for dollars badly needed to fulfil their goals it seems to me to be sacrilegious to spend a be it one cent one Dollar a thousand dollars or a million dollars a for such political nonsense As what this is about. I feel certain that no one who has donated any sum of Money to any of these organizations had in mind that any portion of that donation be earmarked for Ballote ering or to pay for the dear Price that the american arbitration association must charge for this service. I realize that matters of this nature get blown out of proportion and i am hopeful that the reputed $1.000,000 expense of this election is entirely wrong but even if it is Only half that amount or one fourth of that amount it is in my opinion unpardonable to misuse funds from these organizations for this purpose. I look Forward to receiving an explanation from you that can somehow justify the election being conducted through the auspices of the american arbitration association. Specifically i ask you. 1. What is the total Cost of this election including printing and mailing expenses As Well As the fee being paid to the american federation association 2. How were the funds to pay for this election raised 3. H a v e the contributing members of these organizations been notified about the Cost of this election your Early reply is requested. Thank you. Edwin w. Meyers . I am returning All papers connected to you As i certainly would not want to be a part of this purely political outrage.
