Dora Monness Shapiro announces a dinner Saturday evening at the Astor Roof in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Berthold Pollack, who are leaving this city to attend a tubercular conference abroad.

Dr. Pollack, who is medical director of the Hudson County Tuberculosis Hospital and Sanatorium and of the Deborah Sanatorium of Browns Mills in the Pines, of which Mrs. Shapiro is the founder, was instrumental in obtaining $3,000,000 of Public Works Administration funds to build a new tubercular institution.

Among those to attend the dinner were:

Mayor and Mrs. Fiorello H. La-Guardia, Miss Louisa Pollack, Mr. and Mrs. Milton M. Unger, Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Berkovitz, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Schwartz, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Myers, Mr. and Mrs. Philip J. Schotland, Mr. and Mrs. Louis A. Fast, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Panken, Dr. Peter Yudowsky, Dr. and Mrs. David Shapiro, Mrs. Noreck, Cyrus Levinthal, Irving Friedman, Mr. and Mrs. Charles L.

Miss E. Ferderber of the Child Placement Department of the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum announces that the total increase in the number of boys and girls in board from 1929 to the present time equals 358. Records of a child’s interrelation and habits as observed through all the sources at the bureau’s disposal are greatly instrumental in the selection of the children at the asylum who are to remain at home for observation and training and those who may be placed with foster parents. About two-thirds of the children at the home have already been taken into foster homes. Many of the remaining third are waiting now until the best possible homes can be chosen for them, where they will be considered not merely as boarders but as members of the family to which they go. In return for a placement, the Asylum pays for the children’s upkeep, supplies their clothing, and takes care of medical and dental expenditures.


In her weekly Friday afternoon broadcast over Station WLTH Dr. Trude Weiss Rosmarin, director of the School of the Jewish Woman, explained the Galuth psychology of the Jew not only in the era of medieval oppression but as it is evidenced in modern life. The psychology, which enumerates the faults of the Jewish character, she characterized as a lapsing into dishonesty through coercion, and the inevitable reaction to the pressure under which the race struggles for existence. She deplored particularly the present discrimination against Jews in the matter of employment, and urged against a wholesale desertion of Judaism by wage-earners.

The Judah Ladies Auxiliary and the Congregation Kneses Israel of Sea Gate, Brooklyn, celebrates the tenth anniversary of the sisterhood with a bazaar and carnival Saturday evening at the Temple Lawn, Nautilus and Sea Gate avenues, Brooklyn.
