A group of children who have been received by the society during the past year, presented to Secretary Davis, a silk flag, after giving the following salute: “We who have come from foreign shores to the land of liberty, pledge our allegiance to these United States of America, and promise loyally to uphold its principles, and preserve its ideals.

Hias Building, the new Home of the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society of America, is the former Astor Library, a historic landmark of Now York City, erected by John Jacob Astor.

And it Is interesting to note that a building erected by him for educational purposes, now becomes the possession of an organization founded by Jewish immigrants. The purchase price of the building was £325,000 and about $300,000 was ex pended in remodelling it. Hias Building is replete with every modern equipment. It Ims the facili ties for greater work and particularly for larger Americanization activities. The Hebrew Sheltering and Immi grant Aid society of America has a membership of close upon 150.0(H) and ns evidence of the esteem in which it Is bold by the Jews of the country, it is worth while stating that close upon 30.000 individuals contributed to the Building Fund.
