Dr. Abraham Neuman, President
of Dropsie 25 Years, Dead at 80

PHILADELPHIA—Dr. Abraham
A. Neuman, president of Dropsie
College for Hebrew and Cognate
Learning (now Dropsie Univer-
sity) from 1941 to 1966, died here
Nov. 20 at age 80.

Anzia Yezierska, Author
on Immigration Era in
NY's Lower East'. Side

ONTARIO, Calif.—Anzia Yeziers-
ka, whose stories about immigrant
life on New York's Lower East
Side were highly praised in the
1920s, died here Sunday at age 90.
Miss Yezierska, a native of Pinsk
in Russian Poland, was brought to
New York as a child, and her early
years there formed the background
of many of her stories and novels.
Miss Yezierska told about her life
and the poverty on Hester St. in
a fictionalized autobiography, "Red
Ribbon on a White Horse" (1950).
Self-educated, she used part of
her sweatshop wages to pay the
janitor's daughter for the privi-
lege of reading ber school books.
In 1920, the first of Miss Yezi-
erska's seven books, "Hungry
Hearts," was sold to become a
silent movie. In Hollywood, she
was unhappy among those in
search of fame and fortune, so she
left her job as a scenario writer
and returned to New York. The
Depression wiped out her financial
security.
Miss Yezierska then served on
the Writers Project of the Works
Project Administration. She wrote
many book reviews for the New
York Times and continued to write
short stories and articles until
shortly before her death.
