(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Helen Berlin, a nineteen year old Jewish girl, was awarded first honors in the national contest conducted under the auspices of the National Federation of Music Clubs and the Sesqui Centennial Music Committee. Miss Berlin successively carried off the state and district prizes, and before a group of distinguished judges achieved the first honors.

Last night, the prizes were formally awarded, before an audience in the Academy of Music. The prize is a $500 award, in addition to an appearance on the concert stage, under the auspices of the Contest inaugurators.

Miss Berlin is one of two Jews who have won awards. The second is Julian Kahn of New York.

Miss Berlin has been awarded a fellowship in the Juillard Musical Institute of New York where she will study under Paul Kochanski.
