(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The formal dedication of the Leopold Wineman Memorial Building, which houses the North End Clinic, was held here. Michael M. Davis of New York, authority on dispensary and outpatient work, was the principal speaker.

The building was made possible by a gift of $75,000 from Mrs. Leopold Wineman in memory of her late husband, plus funds from the United Jewish Charities, of which the clinic is a part. The clinic is also a constituent agency of the Detroit Community Fund. Henry Wineman, son of the donor and president of the Jewish Welfare Federation of Detroit and of the United Jewish Charities, also spoke.

The North End Clinic, which has a staff of 35 doctors who donate their services to the 15 departments and three evening clinics, is non-sectarian with approximately 60 per cent of its patients Jewish.

The formal dedication of the Melbourne Center, the first of a series of community buildings planned by the Jewish Centers Association, took place last night.

The Association is planning about six community buildings to be erected in the various Jewish districts of the city. The plans have been formulated by Morris D. Waldman, director and secretary of the Jewish Welfare Federation.
