Dayton launched its United Palestine Appeal campaign for $15,000 under the chairmanship of J. H. Margolis.

The 100 men and women inmates of the Home of Old Israel, 204 Henry Street, New York, were removed to the new quarters of the Home, formerly occupied by Beth Israel Hospital.

The aged and indigent inmates were moved in busses and private automobiles, led by a procession of some 3,000 persons, who contributed to the campaign to move the home into the new quarters.

The new quarters will accommodate about 300 and the additional 200 inmates are expected to be admitted within a week.

Dedication exercises of the new Madison House, New York City, were held in the settlement building on Sunday. Speakers included Mrs. Henry Moskowitz, wife of Dr. Henry Moskowitz, one of the founders of the institution.
