The Residence Club will be concerned only with middle-aged and older people. As. in other groups, the older population of Seattle's Jewish community has increased greatly in the past 20 years. Many of them are in good physical condition, many are working, and a few at ]east have some financial security. However, a good percentage of these people are living alone or have some dis- satisfaction with their p r e s e n t living conditions. From the ranks of these people some ten or twelve will be housed in the Residence Club on a pay- ing basis and will have all the benefits of communal living while still being able to carry on their own activities. Victims of Nazi persecution will be given first consideration, and if there is still room, others will be considered. "Seattle can Well be proud of its newest organization, the Jewish Residence Club of Washington," states Mr. Katz, "and the fine spirit of cooperation which has been exhibited by all the agen- cies involved in its formation, especially as they represented a c o m p 1 e t e cross-section of the Jewish community."

It" is made up of :rSOns with "clearly identified , association." on Broadway. Levin had contended during the 20-day trial that he was defrauded of his rights after he wrote a stage adaptation of the diary of the Jewish teen-ager who died in a Nazi concentration camp. Levin charged that his play originally was to have been pro- duced by Cheryl Crawford but when Bloomgarden took over pro- duction, a new script was written by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hackett. Levin contended that the Hac- ker, version, basis of the inter- nationa]ly successful play, con- tained lines which .were not in the original diary. Prior to the trial, Levin said that his only interest wjs to see vindication for his stage script Rabbi Raphael Levine To.Report On Israel At Zionist Banquet . RABBI RAPHAEL LEVINE Rabbi Joseph Wagner, Presi- dent of the Seattle Zionist Dis- trict in announcing that the third mnual American Zionist Fund Banquet will be held Thursday evening, Feb. 13, at Norway Cen- ter, states: "We are extremely fortunate that our dear friend, Rabbi Le- vine has consented to be the fea- tured speaker at our banquet", said Rabbi Wagner. "Rabbi Le- vine will have just returned from a six week's intensive tour of Israel where he met with govern- ment and religious leaders and tourt the entire land. We will all benefit immeasurably from his keen and perceptive insights and observations." "There will be no solicitations of any kind at the banquet. A contribution of $25.00 per couple, which includes cocktails and din- ner for two, is to be the only money to be received. The funds so derived are to be used exclu- sively for the purpose of counter- acting misrepresentations about Jews and the State of Israel now being spread in the United States by Arab League propa- ganda", Rabbi Wagner stated.

BRITISH ART COLLECTIONS FOR ISRAEL'S ANNIVERSARY LONDON, (JTA)--A collection of outstanding paintings and sculptures will be sent to Israel for the forthcoming tenth an- niversary of the establishment of the Jewish State. Addressing a meeting under the auspices of the Friends of Art Museums of Israel, its chairman, Dr. Barnett Stross, appealed to his listeners to collect as many water colors, oils, etchings and bronze of good quality as possible to guarantee that every Israeli gallery and museum receives a representa- tive collection. ' which he said had been sup- pressed. He had said he would donate to a Jewish charity any monetary award from the law- suit. Hungary Accuses IsraelLegation Of Illegal Activities! JERUSALEM JTA)--Formal Hungarian chages that members of the Israel Legation in Budapest had falsified passports and engaged in other illegal .activities were cate- gorically rejected today by a spokesman for the Israel Foreign Ministry. The charges included allegations that the Legation mem- bers also had distributed money to foreigners in Hungary and to Hungarian nationals. They were contained in a pro- test from the Hungarian Foreign Ministry to the Israel Legation in Budapest. (In Budapest today, Israel's Minister Y. Tuval called at the Hungarian oreign Ministry and orally rejected the charges con- tained in the Hungarian note this week end.) The Israel loreign Ministry spokesman carefully avoided dis- closing anything about the con - tent of the Hungarian protest be- yond what had been publicized by the Hungarian announce- ment. The Foreign Ministry spokesnmn said all the allega- tions were "complete ly un- founded.  The note, which was handed to the Israel Foreign Ministry during the week end, surprised political observers here who said that in recent weeks there had ,been indications of irp'roved Is- rael-Hungarian relations from the low point of last October. At that time, the" Hungarian Gov- ernment ousted three Israel dip- lomats in retaliation for the de- tention in Israel of Zoltan Gre- guss, a visiting Hungarian actor who was accused of an immoral act with an Israel girl. Greguss was acquited and ,re- turned to Budapest. Tension be, tween the two countries eased and the Hungarian Government even asked permission to expand its legation in Israel by an ,in- crease in the number of diploo mats at the legation to which Israel agreed. The observers suggested that th latest Hungarian allegations might be a new attempt to pres- sure Israel on several issues which have been unsettled for several months. | NATIONAL UJA LEADERS NAMED [ TO KEY i958 CAMPAIGN POSTS I  Joseph Maser of New York City and olph Kiesler of Dever, two of the nation's outstanding Jewish communal leaders, assume important new roles in the 1958 United Jewish Appeal campaign, it was announced by Morris W.
