Funeral services were held here today for Dr. Leopold Glushak, a specialist in eye, car and throat diseases who was an early leader of the Zionist movement in the United States. He died yesterday, aged 75. The Esthomiaborn doctor organized the Seventh Zionist District in New York in 1923. He was chief of clinic at the Hospital for Joint Diseases for many years and an assistant clinical professor at the New York University Medical Center.
