Classes in the United Hebrew Schools of Detroit were suspended this morning in tribute to the late Rev. H. Milkovsky, funeral services for whom were held in the Philadelphia-Byron School today.

Rev. Milkovsky, in his day recognized as one of the ablest singers and masters of music among the cantors of America, died Thursday morning after a prolonged illness. His wife, his daughter, Mrs. Betty Becker, his son-in-law, and Cantor H. H. Rosenfeld were at his bedside.

For the past two years Cantor Milkovsky was teacher of music in the United Hebrew Schools. He was for years a leader in Detroit and in Chicago in the Jewish National Fund work, Mrs. Milkovsky is the president of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Jewish National Fund of this city.
