Mrs. Adele R. Levy
Dies; 1st UJA Head
of Women's Division

,

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Mrs.
Adele Rosenwald Levy, wife of j
Dr. David M. Levy, and a
daughter of the late Julius
Rosenwald, died Sunday after a
brief illness. She was 67.
Active in 35 charitable, ar-
tistic and community organiza-
tions, Mrs. Levy was the first
chairman of the Women's Divi-
sion of the
United Jewish
n
1946. She was
on the board
f directors of
t h e Greater
New York
UJA, vice
chairman
of the Com-
mittee on Dis-
placed Per-
sons, and a
member of
the Board of
Trustees
of Br an-
deis Univer-
sity. In 1946,
Mrs. Levy she was cited
as "Outstanding Jewish Woman
of the Year" by the National
Council of Jewish Women; and,
in 1957, she received the Gold
Key Award as "Woman of the
Year" from the Federation of
Jewish Philanthropies of New
York City.
As a former general chair-
man of the Greater New York
UJA, Mrs. Levy was to have re-
ceived one of the organization's
highest honors, at a dinner
scheduled for Wednesday night.
She was to have been presented
with the annual Chairman's
Award, a gold plaque symbol-
izing distinguished UJA service.
Concerned for many years
with work on behalf of children
and youth, Mrs. Levy was ap-
pointed by President Truman in
1900 to the executive committee
of the Mid-Century White
House Conference on Children
and Youth. This year, Governor
Rockefeller named her to the
New York State Committee of
the. 1960 White House Confer-
ence.
Among her survivors are her
husband; two sons by a former
marriage; as well as five grand-
children. Surviving also are two
brothers, Lessing J; and Wil-
liam Rosenwald; and two sis-
ters, Mrs. Edgar B. Stern, of
New Orleans; and Mrs. Max As-
coli, of New York.

DR. BENJAMIN A. COHEN

JERUSALEM, (JTA) = Por-
tions of a letter from an Is-
raelite peasant written some
2,700 years ago, which were
found by Israel archaeologists
on the coastal plain, may be
part of the oldest Hebrew letter
ever discovered, the Israel An-
tiquities Department has stated.
Discovery of the letter was
reported by the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency in January.
The fragments of an earthen
pot, on which the letter was
written, were found on the site
of an ancient fort a mile south
of Yavne Yam near the coast.
Scientists haye completed as-
sembling the fragments and
have deciphered about half of
the text which has been tenta-
tively dated as having been
written in the seventh century
before the Common Era.
The letter is an appeal from
the peasant to his prince for
return of a cloak which, in
accordance with customs of the
period, had been confiscated
for a bad debt which the peas-
ant denied.
Scientists said that besides
including at least one word
which has not been found in
any other known Hebrew text,
the letter seemed to indicate
that King Josiah had extended
his sovereignty to the coastal
plain and had settled the area
with Judean peasants.
It had been known that
Josiah conquered northern Is-
rael and parts of the Negev, but
the coastal plain. had been
thought to be an Assyrian prov-
ince at that time. The new evi-
dence indicates that Josiah took
advantage of the decline of the
Assyrian empire and conquered
the coastal plain. -
The scientists pointed out
that the letter was written in
a very skilled script but in
clumsy language, suggesting
that the letter was dictated by
the peasant to a professional
scribe, typical of the scribes
who sat near the city gates to
handle such writing chores.- -
• Other fragments included
Hebrew inscriptions on pottery
which indicated that the letter
was not misplaced but origi-
nated in the Israelite population
resident in the area at that
time.

succeeding Edith Heavenrich,
