Download PDF for this date

The average Jewish working girl between 18 and 25 years of age is strong, healthy, and of normal weight for her age and height, according to the reports of the three physicians who are making health examinations of girls who enroll for Bay House and Lehman House, both conducted by the Jewish Working Girls’ Vacation Society. The doctors, who have already examined the group of more than 100 girls who leave for camp vacations on July 1, have only had to reject one applicant outright, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. Sydney B. Erlanger, chairman of the society’s registration committee.

The society, one of the agencies in the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, conducts Bay House at Bellport, L. I., and Lehman House at Big Indian in the Catskills at non-profit rates. Registration periods are maintained throughout the Summer at the Educational Alliance, 197 East Broadway, and the Federation Building, 71 West Forty-seventh Street.
