The State Board of Charities postponed action Tuesday for another month on the proposed establishment of a branch sanitarium at Goshen, N. Y., by the Jewish Consumptive Relief Society of Denver. Colo. Albert T. Scharps, representing the Relief Society, asked for the delay at a meeting in the State Charities Building, New York.

Establishment of the sanitarium at Goshen has been opposed by residents of Orange County.

Officials of the Montefiore Hospital, also a Jewish institution, are opposed to the new sanitarium. It is their contention that the Bedford Sanitarium can take care of all the consumptive cases at present.

The Campaign Committee of the building fund of the Young Men’s Hebrew Association announced Tuesday that $911,350 of its $1,500,000 fund had been raised. The report was made by Joseph M. Proskauer, President of the association and Chairman of the Drive Committee, at a luncheon of the workers in the Hotel Biltmore.

The total raised Tuesday was $29,500. The largest contribution turned in was $5,000 from Benjamin Stern, of Stern Brothers. Lee Shubert gave $3,000 and Percy Strauss and Herbert S. Strauss, of R. H. Macy Company, contributed $2,500 each.

Other contributors were Henry Morgenthau, $2,000; Harold K. Hochschild, Isidore D. Morrison, $1,500 each; J. L. Cowen, Charles Klingenstein, Conrad Hubert, Samuel Minskoff, Adolph Lewisohn, $1,000 each; Julius Loeb, $900; Louis F. Rothschild. Raisler Heating Company, $750 each; William Rosenbaum, $600; Nathan Burkan, Harry Barth, Harry Pollak, Louis Rockford, Bruno Richter. Julius E. Rosenthal, Alfred J. Rossin, $500 each.

Lee L. Doblin of New York, died Tuesday in Gallup, N. M. He was fifty-one years old.

Mr. Doblin retired from active business about two years ago, and since then has devoted himself almost entirely to philanthropy. Two of his chief interests were the Hospital for Joint Diseases and the Mineola Home for Cardiac Children, of which he was director. He also founded the Direct Relief Association, “designed to do direct charitable work where it is most needed.”
