Dr. Max Weinreich of Vilna, one of the leaders of the Yiddish Scientific Institute, arrived in this country on the Stuttgart to particpate in the international seminar on the effect of modern culture upon personality, which is to be held at Yale University.

Dr. Weinreich will spend a year in the United States. This is his second visit to this country, his first having taken place in 1929.

He will attend the convention of the American section of the Yiddish Scientific Institute which will take place this week-end at the Central Plaza auditorium.

The Yiddish Scientific Institute convention will be addressed in addition to Dr. Weinreich, by Ab. Cahan, editor of the “Jewish Daily Forward;” Dr Chaim Zhitlowsky, Jewish publicist, and S. Niger and B. Z. Goldberg, Jewish writers.
