The funds raised by them go to local, national and over- seas charities. Seattle women's dol- lars will help support the Jewish Family and Child Service in our own community as well as benefit such organizations as the Jewish Welfare Board, the Anti-Defama- tion League of B'nai B'rith, the City of Hope Cancer Agency, American and Overseas ORT, the Denver National TB Hospitals, the American Jewish Committee and many others. However, the princi- pal recipient is the UNITED JEW- ISH APPEAL which supplies need- ed relief for Jews all over the world -- their one source on earth of food, comfort, morale, or safety for their lives, according to their plight. The Women's Division of the Federated Fund & Council earnest- ly hopes that every Seattle Jewish woman, whether attending a lunch- eon or being called on in her home, will GIVE and GIVE GLADLY! Ex-Seattle Singer To Make Opera Debut Word comes from San Francisco that Sylvia Horenstein, mezzo so- prano, has been selected to sing with the San Francisco Opera Com- pany this coming fall season.

Invitations are in the mail for the various functions of the Women's Division, Seattle Federated Fund and Council. If for any reason whatsoever you don't get yours, please contact one of the chairmen of the various functions or the Federated Fund Office, MAin 8213. As you know, sometimes mail goes astray. Sometimes we have a newcomer in the community with whom no contact has been estab- lished. We earnestly feel that every woman wants to do her share in "plus" giving, that other women, less secure, with families, may benefit from her generosity. Also if you can give of your time contact any of the chairmen of the various functions mentioned in the Women's Division Work in this paper. There's a great demand for "willing workers."
