The committee of 350 workers has brought in only a few more than 600 reservations, Zeitz declared. Reservations are $100 a couple.

Members of the bench, including magistrates, city and county judges, justices of the supreme court, and Judge Edward Lazansky, chief justice of the Appellate Division, are on the committee. Special divisions have been organized by the Junior Federation and the women’s division.

Milton Pariser, president of the Junior Federation, appointed Samuel Weinberg chairman of his committee. To date Weinberg has reported more than fifty reservations.
