Owing to the national financial distress, the institution has accumulated a debt of $207,000, and an effort is being made to clear it by the time the convention meets. Samuel Golter, executive director, has made a tour of the leading Jewish centers in the country, and has brought encouraging reports of assistance from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other cities. The institution was founded in 1913.
