The sum of $100,000 was raised at the opening dinner of the United Palestine Appeal campaign at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel here. Seven hundred men and women attended the dinner which inaugurated the campaign for $300,000 Philadelphia’s quota in the campaign.

Louis E. Levinthal is chairman of the drive. Dr. John Haynes Holmes of the New York Community Church was the principal speaker at the dinner. Judge William M. Lewis, national chairman of the U.P.A., made the appeal which resulted in one-third of the quota being raised.
