A Sitting Room in Franklin Towne
Revival of the "upstairs sitting room" is a nostalgic addition to
The Whitehall model home in Olde Franklin Towne, Middlebelt at
Northwestern Hwy. A corner fireplace with "weeping mortar" is
painted white to contrast with the red and white provincial wallpaper
and there are built-in bookshelves. The decorator, Arthur's Boutique,
has added an old-fashioned school clock, wicker chair and bench
painted black and leather-upholstered bench in the Victorian mood.
The pillared Southern colonial model home is open daily and Sunday
11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturdays until 6 p.m. There are six other fur-
nished models in this 183-home community, surrounded by woods
and gentle rolling hills. Recreational parks are designed throughout
the area by the developers and will be landscaped to provide a
village green for picnics and children's games.

Harber Elected by World ORT
ROME (JTA) — The Jewish
character of ORT was emphasized
and its non - political character

leaders, headed by Daniel Mayer
of France, was received by Presi-
dent Saragat. The Italian President
extended to the 40 Jewish leaders
his best wishes for the future of
ORT and its work. He led the Jew-
ish leaders through the garden of
the Presidential Palace.
In other resolutions, the dele-
gates confirmed the ORT agree-
ment with the Israel Government
under which the agency will expand
its program in terms of increased
enrollment in ORT projects. The
delegates also approved maximum
efforts to avoid obsolescence of
ORT instruction techniques by set-
ting up new seminaries where in-
structors will be kept up to date
on rapidly developing technologi-
cal and teaching methods. Refresh-
er courses will be made available
to former pupils.
Dr. Abram Sachar, president of
Brandeis University, warned that
the many indications of improved
attitudes toward Jews in many
parts of the world "should not lull
us into abandoning the realism of
self-help." He spoke at the dinner

He added that few international
