Download PDF for this date

Seven Jews figure prominently on the program of the National Conference of Social Workers which has been attracting nationwide attention, and has been addressed by Secretaries Hughes and Hoover. The most prominent of these is Dr. Alice Solomon, director of the Berlin School of Social Work, one of the six specially invited foreign visitors to the Conference. She made a great impression by her address the other day.

The others are Lee K. Frankel, of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, who has been nominated for first vice-president of the conference, George J. Hecht, editor of BETTER TIMES, New York, Dr. Bernard Glueck, noted psychopathic expert, Dr. Sidney E. Goldstein, Director of Social Service, New York Free Synagogue, Mrs. Henry Moskowitz, Public Relations Councillor, New York, and Alfred Bettman, prominent Cincinnati attorney, who was formerly connected with the Department of Justice.

It is also a source of interest at the Conference that Ruth Mary Wolff, age 2 years and two months, whose father is a director of the Jewish Big Brothers Club of Pittsburgn, has the distinction of being the youngest member or the Conference, having been registered by her parents.
