(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A deputation of the International Society of Psychoanalysts headed by Professor Jones presented Dr. Sigmund Freud an address in behalf of the Society on the occasion of the celebration of his seventieth birthday.

The delegation also offered to present Dr. Freud with a large sum of money as a birthday gift, which Dr. Freud declined. He suggested that the fund be turned over to the publishing house of the international psycho-analysts and the library.
