J. D. B. News Letter

A gift to the Steiner Cancer Clinic, of a farm of 135 acres, by Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Reisman of this city, has just been announced.

This gift will permit the extension of experiments heretofore prohibited because of the overcrowded condition of the Steiner Clinic, where at present many must be turned away because of the lack of facilities. The farm will be a memorial to Mrs. Frances Kleiner, the mother of Mrs. Reisman, who died of this disease recently.

The construction of a laboratory will be under way as soon as plans can be completed, and will cost $10,000. The director of the Clinic is Dr. R. H. Pike. The Clinic was created by a bequest of the late Albert Steiner.
