Maurice Falk, wealthy Pittsburgh Jewish philanthropist and industrialist, who last year announced the establishment of a $10,000,000 foundation for welfare work in memory of his wife, the late Laura Falk, was married again in Cleveland last Friday. His bride is Mrs. Selma Kahn Wertheimer, widow of Morris Wertheimer of Pittsburgh. The wedding took place in the home of Mrs. Albert Einstein, the second Mrs. Falk’s daughter.

After a honeymoon in Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Falk will make their home at the Hotel Schenley here. Mr. Falk is also known for his previous large philanthropies, including one of $750,000 to the University of Pittsburgh and one of $325,000 for a model school.
