(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The government of Quebec will contribute the amount of $125,000 for the reconstruction of Mount Sinai Sanitarium, a Jewish institution.

The sanitarium was built fifteen years ago and is now maintained by the Federation of Jewish Charities in Montreal. The structure was found to be unsafe and inadequate for the growing needs. According to the plan the sanitarium is to be equipped with a new building, the erection of which will cost from $250,000 to $300,000, and when completed will have a bed capacity of 100.


The Republican Campaign Committee in New York issued a statement yesterday by Felix M. Warburg, in which the philanthropist declared himself in favor of Herbert Hoover for President.

“I am not only for Mr. Hoover, but I am an enthusiastic supporter of his,” said Mr. Warburg, who is a Republican. “My conviction is based on my personal acquaintance with him. I have been associated with him in a number of ways, from which I have been able to satisfy myself that his heart has always promptly responded to people in need, that his judgment in matters American and international has been excellent and that his leadership is irresistible. I am sure I am only one of many who admire him because they have worked under him.

“I am not influenced entirely by the fact that Mr. Hoover is unquestionably the ablest man we have to administer the business affairs of the nation. It is important that our material prosperity continue and increase, but it is far more important that the well-being of humanity in general be furthered. Mr. Hoover has the advantage of having done this.”

Mr. Warburg was closely in touch with Mr. Hoover in the latter’s relief work abroad, especially in connection with the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Through his philanthropies in America Mr. Warburg has been further in touch with Mr Hoover’s child welfare work and other efforts to bring about better living conditions.
