Miss Dorothy Alice Kisch, the younger daughter of Mr. H. M. Kisch, C. S. I., late I.C.S., sometime Director-General of the Post Office of India, and sister of Colonel F. H. Kisch, former head of the Palestine Zionist Executive, died here on Saturday at the age of 32. The funeral took place to-day at Willesden Jewish Cemetery.

After training at the London School of Economics and experience of voluntary work in various connections, Miss Kisch had for a number of years been working for the London Association for Mental Welfare. Early this year, when the work of the London Association for Mental Welfare was taken over by the London County Council, she was appointed to be Local Organiser for the South-West London District. In this capacity she had charge of one of the four divisions into which the London area is divided for the purpose of supervision, training, and employment of mental defectives outside institutions. The work demanded an unusual amount of energy, sympathy, and patience, qualities which Miss Kisch possessed in abundant measure, the “Times” writes, adding that her warmth of understanding won for her the affection and esteem of her friends and fellow-workers.
