Download PDF for this date

The Upper Canada Lodge of B’nai B’rith in this city has donated $10,000 to the Toronoto Sick Childrens Hospital for the purchase of a blood testing machine for a research program on Tay-Sachs and other enzyme deficiency diseases. Tay-Sachs is a genetic disorder in children which causes destruction of the central nervous system and death by 3 to 4 years of age.
