Download PDF for this date

A series of social events, entertainments and a drive for financial aid has been inaugurated by the officers and directors of the Los Angeles Sanatorium at Duarte, to commemorate its twenty years of existence as a national intsitution for the help of tubercular indigents..

The twentieth national convention will be held here on Feb. 22.

Owing to the national financial distress, the institution has accumulated a debt of $207,000, and an effort is being made to clear it by the time the convention meets. Samuel Golter, executive director, has made a tour of the leading Jewish centers in the country, and has brought encouraging reports of assistance from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other cities. The institution was founded in 1913.
