A memorial tablet honoring Mrs. Jules Cahn, one of the most prominent social workers of the Southwest, will be erected in the Jewish Community Center here. It will be dedicated at the annual meeting of the Jewish Federation for Social Service the first week in January. A community memorial service, with the three leading rabbis of the city participating, is planned for the same time.

Mrs. Cahn was killed several weeks ago by a deranged client whom she had been helping as secretary of the Jewish Social Service Bureau and who then killed himself. The place which she occupied for eight years has not yet been filled, the work being carried on by George A. Levy, secretary of the Federation.
