As a result of a study made by the Council on Aging of the Community Council Committee of the Seattle Federated Jewish Fund and Council, Articles of Incorporation have ,been filed by Melville Oseran, chairman pro- tern of a new corporation to be known as the Jewish Residence Club of Washington. Mr. Archie S. Katz is chairman of the Com- munity Council Committee and Dr. Norman Clein is chairman of the Council on Aging. The study brought out the fact-that there are at least 1,500 Jewish residents in the Seattle area over 5 years of age, and that there are a sufficient number of older people who need assistance in relationship to their living plans, but who would not benefit from a home for the aged, such as the Caroline Kline Galland Home. It was recognized that isola- tion, loneliness, carele nutrition h,bits and minimum incomes, which are important factors in the aggravation of the aging process, could in large measure be controlled through the estab- lishment of a Residence Club. Dr. Kurt J. Herz, Executive Di-: rector of United Help, I]m., of New York, advised our commu- nils, that a sum would be avail- able for such a purpose from lends held by he Material Claims Conference, to assist Nazi victims from Central Europe now living in America. An application for such financial assistance was filed, and there has been an as- 'surance that approximately $25,- 000 would be available fox' the purchase of a building to house l0 aged Jewi.h persons, provided that the project would have the lull cooperation of the Seattle Yederated Jewish Fund and Council and the Jewish Club of Washington as co-sponsors, and "Ne00 sed" look ,c w .For m'des an lllil@':But u cant beat our the cooperation and professional help of the following agencies In. the community interested in the field of geriatrics: The Jewish Family and Child Service, the Caroline Kline Galland Home the Jewish Community Center and the Seattle Section, Council of Jewish Women.

Mrs. Levinson stated that are now exactly 100 paid-up mem- bers, of whom 15 are life mem- bers. Those who wish to join should do so now, said Mrs. Lev- inson, by sending one year's dues of $5 or a life membership of $100 to the financial secretary, Mrs. William S. Wienir, 6250 Lake Shore Drive. Basically, the Brandeis Wom- en's Committee is not a fund- raising organization. Support to the Brandeis library is given by membership dues, and in addi- tion, participation in the Book Fund. Donors and recipients of gifts'to the Book Fund can have their names inscribed in the Brandeis University library. Mrs. Irving Anches, vice-president in charge of the Book Fund, has chosen as her Committee Mrs. Sam Rubinstein, Miss Ruth Hell- man and Mrs. Charles Alhadeff, who will be happy to supply ad- ditional information concerning the Book Fund. CARE Benefits from Halloween Collections Thanks to a junior high school student in Seattle who is con- vinced that i-Iallowe'en children's tours of the neighborhood should have more significance than col- lecting treats and candy for themselves, many needy people in Israel will receive CARE sur: plus food parcels. Tom Lobe, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Lobe, 731 50th Av.e N.E., decided to "organize" some of his friends into collectors for CARE contributions and was so successful in his plan more than 2,530 pounds of food will aid the Israeli needy. His group included 13 boys and one girl and their canvass brought $165 in collections. As a result of publicity given his plan in some papers, several checks were sent for CARE, to Tom, who did all of tlie planning, obtaining of identification material and containers from the Northwest CARE office, and directed his group. The young people who de- voted their Hallowe'en to the CARE project in addition to Tom were his brother, Jimmy, Patty Wood and her brother, Wyatt Walt Kuelthau, Bob Kaplan Howard Lowen, Doug Arensberg Keith Liptack, Tom Sanford, Bob McMahn, Mike Lafrombouise, Ken Cribley and Bob Baskerville. The contributions went toward CARE Food Crusade packages containing an average of 22 ounds each. of surplus foods from the U. S. government. The one dollar per package contri- bution helps cover costs of pack- aging and delivery. Each package goes in the name of the donor. Contributions in any amourit may be sent the Northwest CARE office, Frederick & Nel- son, Seattle.
