Cincinnati (Jan. 4)
The annual meeting of the Executive Committee of the Independent Order B’nai B’rith will be held here on Sunday, January 13, according to an announcement made from headquarters of the Order.
Judge A. B. Frey of the St. Louis circuit bench was recently tendered a dinner on the occasion of his retirement from the bench, according to word received at B’nai B’rith headquarters. Judge Frey is one of the leaders of the Order in his district.
Former Mayor Kiel was toastmaster. President Neun of the Board of Aldermen praised Judge Frey’s judicial record and standing. Judge Henry A. Hamilton, Judge Moses Hartman were among the speakers.
Ernest A. Green spoke for the State and local Bar Associations. Daniel N. Kirby, member of the governing board of Washington University, spoke for that institution, of which Judge Frey is a graduate. Rabbi Louis Witt of Temple Shaare Emeth spoke of Judge Frey’s place in the Jewish community.
Judge Frey was one of the three Republican Judges retiring from the bench. He was not a candidate for reelection. Three Democrats are to succeed to the positions, having been elected through public support of the Bar Associations’ bi-partisan ticket. One of them is former Judge Moses N. Sale, Judge Frey’s father-in-law.
