Chicago was $25,000 short of its quota of $300,000 set in the United Palestine Appeal drive, which officially closed Monday night with a dinner given by Judge Harry A. Fisher of the Superior Court, chairman of the drive, to the workers.

In addition to the $50,000 raised by the Hadassah, the Junior Hadassah and the Jewish National Fund, $80,000 in cash was raised and $125,000 in pledges, with a total of $275,000.
