Download PDF for this date

A public memorial service for the late Dr. Joseph I. Bluestone, who served as grand master of the Order Sons of Zion for five consecutive terms, will be he### Sunday night at the Hotel Pennsylvania under the auspices of the organization. Prominent Zionist and communal leaders from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut are expected to attend.

Dr. Bluestone helped found the order nearly thirty years ago. A Zionist since childhood days, he was actively devoted to other communal causes, notably Jewish education.

Speakers at the exercises, according to the list made public yesterday, will include Morris Rothenberg, president of the Zionist Organization of America; Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Jewish National Fund; Rabbi #meritus David de Sola Pool of the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, and Joseph Kramer, grand master of the order. Cantor Kapev-Cogen will chant a memorial prayer.
