The $150,000 Louis Heineman Building for Tubercular Children will be dedicated at the National Jewish Hospital here on Sunday, February 16th, with rabbis from four communities and city and state officials in attendance. The ceremonies will mark the formal establishment at the National Jewish Hospital of a distinct department for children afflicted with active tuberculosis. The legacy of the late Louis Heineman of Jamestown, N. Y., made possible the erection of the building and complete equipment for twenty-two children.

Rabbi William S. Friedman of Denver, president of the hospital and its founder more than 30 years ago, will preside at the dedicatory ceremonies.
