(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The annual state convention of the New York Federation of Young Men and Women’s Hebrew Associations will be held here Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10 and 11 Henry A. Cohen, president of the Federation, will be the principal speaker. It is expected that 32 cities in the state will be represented by more than 300 delegates in addition to the 150 members of the local associations.

T. Aaron Levy, professor of law at Syracuse University, will address the sessions.

Mayor Norman A. Boyd of Binghamton will present the keys of the city to the convention. The response will be made by David Cohen, president of the Jewish Community Center, and by H. B. Jungman, executive director.

At a dinner to be held at the Arlington Hotel Sunday afternoon, Bernard H. Chernin will be master of ceremonies. Professor Levy will be the principal speaker.

Armistice Day will be celebrated by the Young Men’s Hebrew Associations of New York with a combined patriotic and athletic event to be conducted on Sunday, November 11th, under the auspices of the Metropolitan League of Jewish Community Associations.

The celebration will take the form of a six mile Good Will Road Race sanctioned by the Metropolitan Association A.A.U. The runners of the Y.M.H.A.’s will bear Armistice Day messages from Judge Joseph M. Proskauer, President of the 92nd Street Y.M.H.A., and Sol M. Stroock, President of the Metropolitan League, to the Young Men’s Christian Association and Knights of Columbus, and receive the latter’s messages in return.

Congressman William W. Cohen is honorary chairman of the Road Race Committee.

Bernard Karfiol, Jewish artist, of 136 West 77th Street, New York City, has been awarded first William A. Clark prize by the Corcoran Art Gallery, consisting of $2,000 and the Corcoran Gold Medal, for his painting “Summer,” which was recently placed on exhibition in the Corcoran Art Gallery, Washington, D. C.
