Main Medical Building Which Will Be Dedicated Sunday Afternoon, July 9th, as Part of the Ceremonies of the 18th Annual Convention, J. C. R. S. Sanatorium of J. C. R. S. Greatest Jewish Institution In World of Tuberculous Delegates From Every District in United Stales to Be Shown Accomplishments of This Unique National Organization. SINGLE ray of sunshine will beautify and rob the blackest cloud of its terror. When (fie clouds of disease pile up on .the horizon of health and tlie lightning of poverty reveals A; the specter of Death reaching out foi its victim, there is no hope for the stricken save thru the Sun of Kindness. To thousands of persons, the Jewish Consumptives’ Relief society is the only sun that has pierced the terrifying curtain that tuberculosis and poverty have dropped between the.m and the future. In eighteen years, the J. (7. R. S. has fed and cared for 4.017 persons of whom it has nursed back to health some 2.500. Truly a wonderful record' “He who saves one life is considered as if he had preserved the whole world,” was written in the Talmud many centuries ago. Then, the J. C. R. S. has preserved tiie whole world 2,500 times in eighteen years. Unigue among the institutions of all the world, the J. C. R. S. plant at Edgewater. just west of Denver, typifies the superlative in many respects. It is distinctive in that it— Is the biggest Jewish institution of the kind in the United States. Makes no distinction between advanced and incipient cases. Makes no distinction between Jews and Gentiles, aitho it is a Jewish institution. Has done wonderful pioneer work in the surgery of the chest. Dispenses charity as thoroly and tactfully as other institutions render service for pay. " And, showing the magnitude of the J. C. R. S. work: Its plant represents an investment of approximately 51.000,000. It has 250 patients. Sixty per cent of the patients who enter its doors are nursed back to a stage of health where they arc able to do at least a few hours work daily. Its sanatorium is located on 108 acres of land, ideally situated. It lias a farm where it raises alfalfa, grain and its own vegetables. Its own dairy supplies every drop of milk used, its own poultry yard supplies it with eggs. It has its own laundry, water plant, power house, ice house. The J. C. 11. S. sanatorium is a veritable town in itself. With the best and most utilitarian buildings, the most modern of equip ment, an unsurpassed medical statT and nursing corps, and remark ably eilicient executives in charge of its activities it is making a record which is the envy of every other philanthopy in the nation. The only limit to the possibilities of the J. C. R. S. is that established by the contributions of its 100.000 supporters. Given the funds with which to provide accommodations and treatment, it could and would care for 1,000 persons just as efficiently and eagerly as it now does for 250. When the J. C. R. S. sanatorium was established its doors were opened to all classes of indigent tuberclous. No distinction was made between the unfortunate who was in the incipient stage and the one who was in the advanced stages of the disease. To the latter, most institutions say: “There is no chance of curing you. We must limit our help to those who may be cured.’ But the J. C. R. S. proceeded upon the theory that the sicker a man is the more he needs care. And it also pointed out that a greater service is rendered society thru the treatment of advanced cases which are the ones that spread disease. • So it not only mercifully administered to those who were hope lessly ill but it even adopted a policy of giving precedence to emergency cases. Regardless of sex or sect, it has given and is still giving the that medical science can give to indigent tuberculars. But so many sought admission to the J. C. R. S. sanatorium that it found itself unable to care for all. It became impossible to (Continu'd on Hack rage.) Who is Who Among Some of Our Delegates to the 18th Annual Convention J. C. R. S.
