Funeral services were held in Newark, N. J. for Louis Alboum, centenarian, whose lifetime of 103 years was believed to have earned for him the distinction of being the city’s oldest Jewish resident. Up to the past year or two he attended synagogue services daily. He is survived by several children and a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Rabbi Alexander S. Kleinfeld, recently of Beth David Temple, Miami, Fla., was unanimously elected assistant to Rabbi Jacob H. Kaplan of Temple Israel, the same city.
