See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

National Jewish Hospital Week, sponsored by a committee of prominent Christians and Jews, will be observed in New York from April 15 to 22, it was announced by Judge Samuel D. Levy, chairman of the New York committee of the hospital, which is located in Denver and cares for tuberculous patients.

During this week a special appeal will be made to philanthropic men and women to buy “health bonds” as a means of supplementing the funds of the hospital.

Many rabbis in this city will deliver sermons on National Jewish Hospital Week, and the heads of local fraternal lodges will make a special appeal to their memberships. Any person subscribing $5 and upwards will receive a “health bond.”

The will of Albert Strauss, former member of the Federal Reserve Board, and of the banking firm of J. and W. Seligman & Co., New York, who died on March 28, was filed in the Surrogates Court. No estimate of the value of the estate was given, but it is understood to be more than $1,000,000.

With the exception of three personal bequests aggregating $12,500, Mr. Strauss left his entire estate to his widow, Mrs. Lucretia Lord Strauss.
