A combined cemetery for Jews, Catholics and Protestants is planned by the Bethlehem Cemetery Corporation which has just been organized here. According to the announcement, a one hundred and three acre cemetery will be developed at Milltown, N. J., and this tract will be divided into equal parts for the three respective faiths.

City Commissioner John F. Murray, Jr., has been elected president of the corporation and Thomas L. Hanson of Perth Amboy, secretary to Governor Larsen, has been chosen first vice-president. The board of directors of fourteen is equally divided between Jews and Christians.
