The memory of Hugo Prenss, late German Jewish jurist and statesman, author of the Weimar draft of the constitution of the German Republic, was honored yesterday on the first anniversary of his death.

A guard of honor was stationed at the grave, which was visited by the members of the executive of the democratic party and of the Reichs-banner organization and other social and political societies. Wreaths bearing the Republican colors were placed on the grave.
