(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Bernard Baron, former Jewish immigrant boy in the United States, and now leading tobacco manufacturer and philanthropist in England, has distributed up to the present an amount of over £1,250,000 ($6,250,000) for charitable purposes.

“If I live for the next two or three years I will do more than this,” Mr. Baron stated at a luncheon he addressed at Brighton inaugurating a drive for local hospitals.
