Fears Federation Event Will Not Be Sell-out

Fear that a last-minute slump may prevent the tenth annual dinner and ball of the Brooklyn Federation of Jewish Charities from reaching its quota of 1,800 reservations was expressed yesterday by Supreme Court Justice Mitchell May, president.

The affair is scheduled for Sunday evening at the Hotel St. George. More than 1,600 reservations at fifty dollars a head have already been made. The full quota, however, is needed to raise the $90,000 required for the budget of the Brooklyn Federation’s twenty-five agencies, the Justice said.
