Presentation of a bronze bust of Jacob Epstein, Jewish philanthropist, will feature the annual memorial exercises of the Mount Pleasant Jewish tubercular sanatorium at Reisterstown Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Epstein founded the home in 1908, and the bust will be presented to the sanatorium by Mr. and Mrs. A. Ray Katz and Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Lansburgh. Mrs. Katz and Mrs. Lansburgh are daughters of Mr. Epstein.

Dr. Harry S. Mustard, associate professor of public health administration of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, and Harry Greenstein, executive director of the Associated Jewish Charities, will speak. Rev. Dr. Edward L. Israel, rabbi of the Har Sinai Temple, will pronounce the invocation and lead in the prayer for the dead at the close of the services.
