The Brooklyn Federation of Jewish Charities has received more than $200,000 thus far in its $500,000 twenty-fifth anniversary campaign, County Judge Algeron I. Nova, chairman of the drive, announced.

“We have had contributions in actual cash amounting to a total of $204,370,” said Judge Nova, “and I am gratified at the prospect of our complete success, although we face difficulty in completing the funds we must have to meet the minimum budgetary necessities of the twenty-five affiliated societies.”

The Federation Women’s Division tomorrow will enter the last half of its ten days’ roll call, designed to add 10,000 contributors to the Federation campaign. Approximately 600 women in all sections of the borough are aiding in the endeavor, and Mrs. Nathan L. Goldstein, general chairman, said workers are well on their way to the halfway post. The final report meeting on the roll call will be held next Thursday from 12:30 to 1:30 P. M.

The Women’s Division is sponsoring a benefit performance today of Littman’s Little Artists, who are to appear in revue at 2 P. M. at Union Temple Auditorium, 17 Eastern parkway, the proceeds to be added to the sums being raised by Federation Town, the children’s “municipality,” to aid the Brooklyn Federation campaign. More than one hundred children are taking part in the revue under direction of Miss Joan Hamilton. Services of the young performers have been donated by Morriss Littmann of Manhattan.

More than 500 children are expected to attend the performance this afternoon, including “citizens” of Federation Town, who range in age from two to eighteen years, and the “city’s” official board, headed by Daniel Karp, the sixteen-year-old mayor. Mrs. Isaac Meyer and Mrs. Meyer Goldstein are co-chairmen of Federation Town.
