Seven charitable institutions benefited from the will of the late Hiram W. Friedenwald, filed for probate here. Mr. Friedenwald was a real estate developer and president of a building supply company.

The will made bequests of $128,000, of which $23,000 went to various institutions, and left the residue of the estate to the Mount Pleasant Sanitorium. Trust funds of $40,000 to Miss Beulah A. Skinner and $10,000 for Miss Meria B. Ambach, a niece, will be divided between Sinai Hospital and the Mount Pleasant Sanitorium on the death of the recipients.

Other bequests went to: Sinai Hospital, $10,000; Council Milk Ice Fund and the Hebrew Home for the Aged and Infirm, $5,000 each, and the Little Sisters of the Poor, the General German Orphan Asylum and the Kernan Hospital and Industrial School for Crippled Children, $1,000 each. Relatives received $54,000.
