Since its inception the jewish Hospital of Cincinnati has been a source of great Good in this Community. It has rendered splendid service in caring for the unfortunate sick and its reputation for being a first class institution has been earned because of the Standard of its supervision. This reputation is a deserved one. It is the crowning of sixty six years of Endeavor for the people of Cincinnati and its environs. The history of the jewish Hospital dates Back to december 17, 1804. On that memorable sunday a dozen progressive citizens met and organized the much needed Hospital for their growing Community. At the initial meeting were Jacob , Samuel j. Oppenheimer h. Y. Moses j. Goldberg Natl Ian Moses j. Seasongood m. Klaw j. Goodheart j. Friedman d. Price and m. E. Mack and they incorporated the jewish Hospital association. As stated in the articles of incorporation it was organized a for the purpose of alleviating the indigent poor sick of the jewish Faith and for such other benevolent purposes As the by Laws May subsequently the Board of directors amended the by Laws making the jewish Hospital a non sectarian institution. The first president was Jacob Elsas and Samuel j. Oppenheimer was made Secretary. A Small House on Betts Street avas rented and one room set aside for the care of the sick. It was a modest beginning but the originators lived to see the fruition of their labors. For two years the one room sufficed and then new quarters were obtained at third and Baum streets. The new location was considered Ideal As it wms directly opposite the United states Marine Hospital then famous As a place for the care of tie sick who came from All the tributaries of the Ohio River. The City of Cincinnati avas then bounded by the canal and the we est Ern line of Central Avenue then called Western Row. Or. A. Bettman father of or. We. Bett Nian assumed charge. He had meager facilities and equipment. Aseptic surgery was unknown and Medicine had not progressed to its present High Standard but he accomplished a great Deal despite crude conditions. Progress was the key note and on june 25, 1882, Harmon Mack the second president of the jewish Hospital association called a special meeting to consider the following Resolution which we As adopted a resolved that the Board of control of the jewish Hospital association consider the creation of a Home for the jewish aged and infirm of Cincinnati a necessity and that such an Asylum ought to be established without unnecessary president Mack named Harmon Mack b. Stern a. J. Friedlander Henry Loewenstein Jacob Shroeder Jacob Seasongood n. Menderson Albert , a. Ackerland James Low Man Henry Stix Alex. Straus Jacob Elsas William Stix Marx Leon Levi j. Workum and Louis Levy to study the problem. The Board of control devoted much time to investigating the possibilities of establishing a Home for the aged and infirm. From time to time the committee rendered reports. However decisive action was not taken until the annual meeting of september 1887, during the add ministration of president James Lowman. The Board of control was authorized to Purchase a part of the Home site on Burnet Avenue for Hospital purposes a and to operate both institutions under one system and suffice it to say the hoj Jie for the aged and infirm was built and was occupied jointly by the Home and jewish Hospital . The energetic members of the association next proceeded to obtain funds for a Hospital building and As a remit of their efforts the South bulldog a Model in architecture and con at a Cost of to . Samuel s. Godley was the architect. I at it was worthy of the men who if i evidenced by the fact that i is being used today to the greatest advantage As a part of the Modem Plant of the jewish Hospital. At. Dedication of the building n March 30, 1800, the following pro Man was presented i. M. Wise delivery of Mit chairman of building com Itee Julius Freiberg acceptance of key by president James i Owman address or. David Philipson address in behalf of the medical staff or. Joseph Ransohoff Benediction or. David Philipson. I May be permitted to quote from the address delivered by the esteemed Julius Freiberg chairman of the building committee who in delivering the key said a it Ove thy neighbor As thyself shall be the watchword when no other weapons shall be used except kindness and Good will when the sick and tired of life and its burdens shall be cared for and tenderly nursed and when humanity shall be the supreme ruler. Quot in handing the key of this magnificent building to our president i can not refrain from expressing my admiration and Praise for the architect or. Godley the general contractor or. Marcus and others for their faithful work. Presenting this key reminds me of a similar occasion a Quarter of a Century ago when i had the Honor of handing the key to the lamented Abraham Aub then president of the Hospital so recently abandoned. A paly Hope is that our Hospital shall never Lack support and that it will be richly endowed by the Good and charitable and that gods Blessing May rest upon it and upon All who take an interest the Ofifi ers of the jewish Hospital at that time were president James Lowman vice president Herman Mack treasurer a. J. Seasongood recording Secretary Louis Kramer financial Secretary. J. Mack trustees Julius Freiberg h. Stix h. S. Fechheimer a. Strauss m. Marks Elias Moch Julius Reis and e. Simon. The records disclose that on May 20, 1904, or. James Lowman passed away and or. David Workum who succeeded him in his annual address paid the following High tribute to the deceased a amt. Lowman was the honoured preside Jit of your association and As such was highly esteemed in the Community. Energy Zeal and deep interest marked his conduct As your presiding officer. Under his guidance the Hospital was developed from its primitive state occupying Small quarters on Baum Street to its present modern equipment. He did much Good work to accomplish the objects dear to his heart. He did it Well a and this institution deeply deplores his taking As the years passed and the Hospital became More successful or. Workum and his associates on the Board of directors saw the need of a larger institution. Genero is gifts from leading jews of this City enabled them to construct tie children a building. Those who contributed Large sums for the building must have been actuated by the same Beautiful thought expressed by or. Workum who said a is there any Charity More ideally Beautiful than tenderly caring for sick children a tie children a building a is a credit to its donors and an Honor to our jewish then followed the gift of or. Joseph Joseph who built the present nurses Hall for the training school. This Structure now Kiouses All our Pupil nurses and recently the donors children expended a Large sum to beautify the Interior so that the nurses might have greater Comfort. On May 10, 1904, or. Julius Freiberg presented the Hospital with .$2.5, 000.00 to build a surgical Pavilion As a memorial to his do Iii Tod wife mrs. Duffie Workum Freiberg. In 1900 or. Tames Levy a member of the Board of directors appreciating the need of a Power House to open ate the Hospital gave $25,000.00 for the building and the equipment of boilers engines electric Light Plant and steam Power laundry. It was in memory of his beloved Niece Lilly 1.evy Kulli on the anniversary of her Birt Liday. A great loss was sustained by the Hospital in 1915 when Mary Hamer Greenwood superintendent of the jewish hos Pital was forced to relinquish her life s work by reason of failing eyesight and lie Alth. She came to the jewish Hospital nearly thirty years ago when the Hospital had but one building and one nurse under her. She came equipped with youth health vigor and a Brilliant mind coupled with remarkable executive ability and Gigli ideals she sought the Best material for student nurses and established the Lewisii Hospital school for nurses. Miss Greenwood was a Pioneer in the development of present Day nursing. She increased the years of study successively from one to two years and from two to three years before graduation. She required the highest standards for admission to the school and she establish died All these things in the instruction of nursing that made our school for nurses the Standard which Many follow. A under her superintendence our Hospital has grown to its present proportions and through her influence and Hospital management the reputation of our Hospital for excellence and High standing Lias for Many years been recognized throughout the Hospital world a said president Workum in his annual report. It is a great pleasure to say that inasmuch As this Able woman was compelled to relinquish her profession because of physical disability the Board of directors has made it possible to place her on a pension for the balance of her life. Miss May Morre Russell who had rend red splendid service As supervisor of the surgical Pavilion succeeded miss Greenwood and held the position up to six Mont Lis ago when she resumed exclusive charge of the training school for nurses. Shortly after the annual meeting of 1915, the Board of directors were pleased to accept the offer of messes. Samuel Henry Robert Isadore and Charles Straus to erect a nurses study Hall in Loving thought that their Mother Fannie Straus had been blessed with More than ninety years. This Structure in which tie annual meetings Are held seats 250, and is used for general and popular lectures and demonstrations not Only for our own nurses but for others interested in such work fhe building is also provided with class rooms and laboratories 80 that the nurses May have every fad Lity for scientific and technical training. The children of Ida Straus Henly in memory of their Mother furnished and equipped the auditorium. Included in the equipment is stereo pal con and moving film apparatus. During the past four years tie jewish Hospital continued to improve. The medical staff composed of the leading practitioners of this City gave their Earnest attention to the care of the indigent sick and availed themselves of the Hospital private service by sending their patients to the jewish Hospital. The present and future of our Hospital is a subject that one could dwell at great length. The Board of directors in their desire to make the jewish Hospital second to none in this Community permitted the superintendent to expend Large sums of Money for rehabilitation modern equipment and other essentials. The result has been that our Hospital in the forefront and the jewish people May Well Point with Pride to their institution. In a pamphlet just issued attention has been called to the various departments of the Hospital. To enumerate each of these would require a Deal of space but i May with pardonable Pride Point to our pathological Laboratory operating Pavilion xray department and maternity Section All of which Are worthy of our institution. The pathological Laboratory is equipped with the most modern apparatus and is doing All types of bacteriological and tissue work. A skilled technician is in constant attendance. Special equipment for the examination of Frozen sections has been installed in the surgical Pavilion so that the result of the examination of tissue removed during operation can be obtained within a few minutes and during the Progress of the operation. No expense has been spared in providing the Best surgical appliances for the operating Pavilion. Two graduate nurses a a Selsted by Pupil nurses look after the five operating rooms. Day or night the surgery is ready to handle All emergencies. This Hospital is the Only one in this City that possesses a cardio vascular department with the newest Type of electro cardio Grapoli. Entire hos Pital is wired so that a heart record May be taken of a patient while he lies in bed. Experts Are ready to report on All records wit i a View to aiding a doctor in making or confirming his diagnosis. In addition to our surgery service a room has been set aside for dentistry. This room has the latest and Best equipment which was presented to the Hospital by director Robert Kuhn. The maternity department has been enlarged and is splendidly equipped to care for the Mother and her baby. Two nurseries to care for the private room and Ward cases Are provided. The delivery room and first stage room Are models in appearance and equipment. The Sun porch which was built and equipped by mrs. Emil Pollok at a great expense gives pleasure and Comfort to the patients who occupy that portion of the . Anri it is Only fitting that the maternity Section should be of the High est Standard As it must eventually pave the Way for the maternity building that is to be erected by or. Maurice Freiberg in memory of his beloved wife. The plans for the new Structure which will face Harvey Avenue Are nearly completed. It will be the last word in a building of Liat Type. An Eye clinic equipped with every modern appliance for he examination and treatment of the Eye was presented by or. Harry a. Freiberg in memory of or. Jesse l. Wyler his devoted Friend. The Hospital utilizes the gift in caring for the deserving poor who attend the clinic twice a week. The jewish Hospital has acquired four houses and additional ground facing Harvey Avenue immediately in the rear of the present Hospital buildings for the future enlargement of the institution. One of thie structures is being used As a psychopathic Institute Liere children of All creeds who have shown any mental abnormality Are kept under observation for varying periods of time in order that their mental status May be definitely determined. Wilile the psychopathic Institute is an Experiment and is being conducted by the United jewish social agencies in co operation with the jewish Hospital its Success leads All to Lope that some generous jew will erect a building on the grounds for caring not Only for the children but also adults whose temporary maladies May be observed and treated privately rather than in a municipal or state institution. The jewish Hospital is not maintained to earn Money. It is operated at a loss because half its number of Beds Are Given up to free patients and an additional nearly Twenty five per cent at a great Deal less than Cost. Its private income helps to maintain the clinic or free Side. Fifty free Beds have been assigned the indigent poor and the latter Are Given the Best care by our medical staff and corps of nurses. During the Many years of its existence it has been a matter of Pride to the management of the jewish Hospital that it should be in the forefront of every medical and surgical Advance. At no time have the Board of directors failed to provide the Hospital with materials and apparatus which would make it possible to offer the very latest and Best that could be done for its patients. It is certain that this will Ever be the policy of the jewish Hospital of Cincinnati. It is with gratification that i announce that the american College of surgeons has approved this Hospital and by its approval declares that it is one of the limited list of hospitals of the nation that measures up to its very High Standard. This Standard Means that the jewish Hospital possesses and keeps accurate Case records of its patients that clinical facilities Are available for the study diagnosis and treatment of patients that it has chemical bacteriological serological i stole Gica Radic graphic and Florose Bulc sen ice in charge of trained technicians. The Hospital is running to capacity and it is hoped that some Day in the near future the Board of directors will he enabled to increase its size by the erection of a Modem Hospital Structure.

Ford and assume that a part is equal to the whole. However apart from All this or. Fords coarse seems to be peculiarly vicious if not positively dangerous from another Angle. The americans Are a composite race. Our ancestors came from everywhere. The ancestors of future generations Are coming. It is our task and our Pride tar Algamae All these races into Gbo americans who shall embrace and carry Forward our ideals. Believing this one must preach and strive incessantly against racial and religions prejudice if the Good work is not to be carted off to the Jim Heap of faded visions. Most of us Are As yet very ignorant and so Long As we Are ignorant there is nothing so easy to arouse and so dangerous when it is aroused As our prejudices. In religion this is peculiarly True. In certain places even in the old Western Reserve there Are men who will not vote for other men if they happen to belong to certain churches which they no not approve while there is a perhaps subconscious tendency for All hands to turn upon the fellow who is honest enough to say that All religions look alike to him. Certainly any one who would accentuate this tendency who would seek to arouse prejudice and passion racial or religious is by those acts ceasing to be a Good american and thereby is holding Back the Progress of civilization. Or. Fords screeds Are in reality As strange to americanism As its history is to him and while no it out they would be eminently popular in Russia or Poland they Are most woefully out of place in the United states of America. Christian Ford s jewish pogrom. Editorial published by Akron of Beacon journal on sell 15. Pastors jew. Defend Henry Ford assailed in two ser Mons for his recent attack. On the witness stand Henry Ford said he was not kure but he thought Benedict Arnold was one of the signers of the declaration of Independence. Therefore whilst one must admit that Uncle Henry knows something about making tin Lizzie he is nevertheless a Letoe shy on history. But Uncle Henry must have been burning copious quantities of mini igbo Oil since then. We Saj this because of an incident we must iterate. Uncle Henry is the owner and editor of a newspaper which a. Called the Dearborn Independent. It. To a paper which purports to have Tel on in Earth of helping humanity. Now the Dearborn Independent for quite a while has been running a series of most remarkable articles. They Are singularly Well written for a Man who did not know about Benedict Arnold. But their conclusions Are just about what one would expect from such a source. In Brief these articles Are expressly designed to demonstrate that the jews Are a most dangerous people. It is True credit is Given them for plenty of mental capacity but they Are de not fixed As mercenary altogether commercial unpatriotic and a menace to any country. This is indeed an unexpected Angle to find outside of Russia or Poland. Perhaps one should dismiss it As one of those irresponsible outbursts which one pining for the limelight sometimes indulges in. But whether he deserves it or not Ford has a certain standing and influence in this country which has potentiality of Good or evil. And when we consider that no amount of barbarism persists so Long As religious prejudice it will be seen that these amazing articles Are capable of doing incalculable harm. We hold no Brief for jew or Gentile but we do for common honesty and decency. We Are a member of no Church but we Are altogether american and we therefore have no hesitancy in saying that these articles Are not Only a disgrace to Ford and his paper but to the country he pretends to exalt. A Challenge of the jews patriotism comes with bad Grace from a Man who says that the american Flag Means nothing to him and demonstrated that he believed in that philosophy by having his son exempted from serving his country. Of course such a statement can Only arouse amusement in one who knows a Little More about the world than Ford under oath swore Liat he knew. In fact if Ford had known enough of history to place Benedict Arnold correctly he might have also known that the jew reddened the Field of the revolution with his blood fought to preserve the Union and went in countless thousands across seas in that iridescent dream of making the world Safe for democracy and Uliey died gloriously just As other americans died. If because of his love of Money the jew has been a promoter of War As Ford says we should like to see the proof that he is any greater offender in this behalf than any other nationality. If a Rothschild has played the War game for Money How about our own Morgan and How about or. Ford himself who is reported to have come out of the late War by no Means penniless. But such reasoning. If one May so dignify it is upon its face absurd. Doubtless there Are jews who play the War Gaine for profits just As there Are americans englishmen in fact Peoples of All nations. But to assign to the jew a Peculiar monopoly on this vice is As ridiculous As it would be to say that Only men with White skins Are honest or because a member of the Baptist Church once robbed a Bank All baptists Are predisposed to grand larceny. The jew is and has always been very much like All the rest of us. His religion has not uprooted Rasca Lity any More than has our own and if a Black sheep now and then flecks the flock of Israel let us not forget that Stone of on own pastures would make Jacobs Breeding trick look rather Tam and innocuous. Humanity is pretty nearly the came wherever we and it and since the Serpent Caine to corrupt the progeny of Adam great Virtues and great Rasca Lity two clergymen of new York City in sermons yesterday took Henry Ford to task for his opinions about tie jews recently published in his Magazine. The Rev. Charles Francis Mckoy pastor of the Greene Avenue Baptist Church Brooklyn said Henry Ford did not represent the Christian sentiment of America. A if to did i should be heartily ashamed of my Brethren a said or. Mckoy. The Rev. Tolm Haynes Holmes at the Community Cli urch Lyric Tleater said the jews were among the noblest of All the Peoples of the world. A now like a Bolt from out the Blue comes the declaration of or. Ford and his associates of hatred for the jew a said or. Holmes. A hatred is abroad in the world As never before a he added. Foreign news the speech of archbishop Che Moon to the jewish Community at sob stands alone As a Bright exception to the utter ices we usually hear in responsible hungarian quarters. The archbishop in addressing the jews wished them a Happy new year Anil offered to protect them. He emphasized the necessity of religious peace and the danger arising from the propaganda of hatred. He also appealed to the jews to live in accordance wit i the Laws of Moses not to change thei religion or nationality and not to feel ashamed of the latter. Anti semitic agitation in let land. The anti semitic press of let land opened a campy Ign in favor of restricting the rights of jews and of establishing a control of jewish in Cone. The students Are also anxious to introduce a percentage Norm for jews in the schools. The order of tie government to expel from the Counti yall lithuanian subjects. Including tens of thousands of jews was cancelled owing to the representations made by the lithuanian government. Vienna University and foreign jewish students. Tie intervention of the minister of education to cancel the order of the Senate of tie Vienna University fixing a ten per cent Norm for non austrian students has created a storm of indignation in the anti semitic forces. The Rector declared Liat the University As an autonomous body need not obey the instructions of the government. He also announced that several a professors threatened to re sign their posts As a protest against the go it Ern ment. The latter Lio Wever is determined in its Resolution not to endanger the foreign relations Liy reactionary measures. Although tie decision of the Senate was chiefly directed against the galician jews the Czecho slovakian and Yugo slavish ministers protest a against the Meas lire. The ministry is also anxious not to offend jewish opinion in America and tie outcry against tie restriction raised by Deputy Strucker and tie jewish nationalists greatly impressed the Chhiet. The jewish question in the rumanian parliament. Deputy Straucher delivered a speech in the rumanian chamber. He Cen Sun a the ill treatment of the jews by the military authorities. He demanded the establishment of a jewish department at the ministry of education and the reinstatement of the dismissed jewish of Licals in the occupied territories. The Gove ziment prohibited the entry into Rumania of the jewish refugees from Ukraine. In the polish and russian War zone. The government has agreed to restore the Synagog at Novidvor Zaz Ritchim and other placed to the returning communities. It is also favourably inclined towards the petition of the jewish deputies demanding compensation for the transported a tews for the damage done to their property in their absence. At Sherpa the bolsheviks executed the jewish landowners Vrona and Shararian. At Lino the red soldiers plundered most jewish houses and shops. The poles admit that the jews acted loyally towards Poland,.and that the rabbi Sec Ureil the release of the Catholic priest Savl Tekl. At Minsk the Lewisii shops and houses we Ere plundered. A few jews were shot by the bids evils for profiteering. The jewish Joni annl Council was closed and son get zionist workers were arrested. The local poles now rely on jewish Sutic it Ort the caprices of the russians. At Vilna All shops were plunder Eil and most Rich merchants were arrested. M. Shapiro was shot by the bolsheviks. Influx of polish jews into Lithuania. The lithuanian government announced that Large numbers of polish jews continue to Cross the Frontier to escape persecution at the hands of the poles. The newcomers Settle in a Khanla As they Are not anxious to return to Poland. The lithuanian gov emment also stated that the tews of Selby appealed to Lithuania not to Transfer the town to Poland. When the poles entered the town they organized a five Days pogrom in the course of which Many jew esses were dishonoured and jewish property and goods to the amount of two million Marks were plundered. At Vilna the lithuanian com mail or appointed a few jews As police . French government whitewashes Poland. In he Alliance israelite having drawn the attention of the ministry of for a a Ign affairs to the commit text a against the tews in Poland and Galicia and the apathy displayed by tie polish government in the matter has received a communication from the ministry Widich states that the acts complained of were isolated instances and that the reports of impartial of Send ers Bear out their View that there is no systematic or organized persecution of the jew s. The common Len Tiosh goes on to state Liat As already reported in these columns a commission of poles and jews has been established by the gov emment to discuss the whole question of the relations bet Quot Een the poles and jews. The jewish problem in Hungary. The news concerning the in Hungary continues to be of a character pointing to the precarious position of on Brethren. The Premier and the minister of the Interior received a deputation of the Black Hun reils known As the a Law a ening the minister of the Interior promised the deputation to expel the galician jews and All undesirable aliens from the country. At Szolnoky forty nine persons w Ere abducted and tortured to death. Or. Klein who examined the corpses recorded the real facts As regards their torture by the military authorities. The officers demanded that or. Klein should alter his statement and that they died from natural causes. Own Lnig to his refusal to comply with this request he was himself abducted and murdered. After the Allied representatives had un�ucce�5fuuy intervened on his behalf the officers subsequently issued a statement announcing that or. Klein had committed suicide. The sex hungarian Premier or. Wekerle is of opinion that the economic crisis is responsible for the acute state of the jewish problem. He too however is strongly opposed to the acceptance into hungarian Cir cles of converted jews who changed their religion for career purposes. Hebrew University on the mount of olives will open in 1922. Matted to the zionist organization. Prof. Geddes went to Jeroo Aleta on Somra Issod from the zionist or Gantos Tion to design the hebrew Unive Mitor and to Levise plans for Model zing Jerusalem and the other cities of Palestine without destroying their Anci to historical and sacred backgrounds.

A Otlie greatest and most important task of the University will be in strengthening the Bonds Between Palestine and we orld jewry and in in aking Palestine the real spiritual Center of Judaism a says the report a the department of jewish learning would help the jewish Renaissance in Palestine by encouraging a really scientific study of the creation of tie jewish Genius in the past and because such an institution in Palestine itself could to made unique among the universities of the world it would attract pupils from All quarters.
