Jewish inmates of Illinois state hospitals, schools for delinquents and penal institutions will have matzoths for Passover, according to an order issued in Springfield by Governor Henry Horner. He directed A. L. Bowen, director of the Department of Public Welfare, to see that provisions were made in all the institutions for the Jewish wards of the state.

“Governor Horner directed me to make sure that all Jewish wards of the state will have matzoths for the whole week of Passover,” Mr. Bowen said. “I have asked the superintendent of each institution to requisition the amount required, and the supplies will be available in time for the observance of the holiday.”
