Professor Albert Einstein will be the principal speaker next Wednesday evening at a banquet to be held here at the Fleischer Auditorium of the Y. M. H. A. for the benefit of two Jerusalem hospitals, the Bicur Cholim and the Home for Incurables.

Outstanding local leaders will grace the dais on the occasion of the visit of the savant. Dr. Jacob Billikopf, former director of the local Jewish community chest and now an official in the NRA, will preside as toastmaster. The committee sponsoring the campaign for the two hospitals is headed by Hirsch Manischewitz, national chairman.

Mr. Einstein’s speech will be broadcast.
