Download PDF for this date

Unable to attend the Y.M.H.A. dinner given in his honor Saturday night, Harry L. Glucksman, director of the Jewish Welfare Board, listened to speakers praising his work by means of a telephonic hook-up to his bed, where he was lying ill with the grippe.

“Others have made money or built buidings, but you have made men,” he was told by former Judge Joseph M. Proskauer. Other speakers at the celebration, one of a series held during the 92nd Street ‘Y’s’ sixtieth anniversary week, included Judge Irving Lehman, Frank L. Weil, president; Simon Gottschall, Morris Rothenberg, M. Maldwin Fertig, Judge Henry W. Unger and Milton Weill.

Messages were read from Governor Lehman, Felix Warburg, George Z. Medalie and others.
