Dr. John H. Finley, associate editor of the New York Times, will be the speaker Wednesday morning at the first series of lectures on social service to be given during the next three months by the Women’s Division of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, at the Blumenthal Auditorium. Dr. Finley will speak on “Private Efforts in Public Service.” Felix M. Warburg will preside.

The lectures are a part of the Social Service Forum of which Mrs. Benedict Erstein is chairman, and is one of the numerous activities of the Women’s Division which has as its chairman Mrs. Sidney C.
