Two Jewish women from Waterbury, Mrs. Helen C. Allman and Miss Jeanette Levi, sisters, have fallen heir to an estate of more than $10,000,000, it became known today. They are bequeathed virtually the entire property of the late Albert Levi, millionaire jewelry and furniture store magnate, according to his will filed in Thompsonville, Conn. The parents of Mr. Levi are also remembered but no specific amount is named in the will.

Albert J. Levi was the chief owner of the 126 Kay jewelry stores and 26 Hadley furniture stores in various cities throughout the United States. He is said to have been the first man to introduce minature golf on his estate at Enfield, Conn. The sisters of Mr. Levi are named as the principal beneficiaries under the terms of the trust which appointed Edwin M. Rosenthal of Detroit and Edmund I. Kaufman of Washington, D. C., as executors.
