The annual theatre party of the Palestine Lighthouse will be held at the Casino Theatre, Dec. 17th, where the play “Hello Yourself” will be presented.

The Palestine Lighthouse has been founded to aid the destitute blind of Palestine. At present there are 75 blind in the Institute and because of the increasing demand for more room, the New York Committee is endeavoring to procure the sum of $100,000 for the construction of the new building to house 150 patients.

It is expected that the theatre party will realize the amount of $6,000.

Dr. D. De Sola Pool is president of the organization.
