Download PDF for this date

Approximately 10,000 persons participated in the funeral services for Yosl Cutler, Jewish author, cartoonist and creator of the Yiddish Marionette Theatre who was buried on Sunday at the cemetery of the International Workers Order.

Mr. Cutler was killed last week in an automobile crash in Iowa Falls.

The funeral procession started from the Irving Plaza on Irving Place and 14th Street. Representatives of labor organizations and schools formed a guard of honor. Members of the editorial staff of the Freiheit, New York Jewish daily on which Cutler worked, were the principal speakers at the ceremonies.

A memorial meeting for Cutler is being arranged for tomorrow at the Fifth Avenue Theatre on Twenty-eighth Street and Broadway.
