A convention in observance of the thirty-first anniversary of the founding of the Jewish Consumptives’ Relief Society will continue today (Sunday) and tomorrow after opening at the Hotel Astor Saturday.

The first session of the convention was to be addressed by prominent citizens, including Bernard S. Deutsch, president of the Board of Aldermen. The society, organized in 1904, maintains thirty-four buildings and forty tents near Denver, Col.

A business session is scheduled for 10:30 o’clock this morning with the sixth annual dinner occurring at 6 o’clock tonight in the grand ballroom. Tickets are $100 per couple. Reports of committees will be heard tomorrow.
