in 1966, he sold his interest here and moved to Queens, where he opened a candy store. About three years ago he suffered head injuries when he was attacked by a robber while leaving a subway station and was forced to retire.

While in Washington, Mr. Schulman was a member of the Samuel Gompers Lodge No. 45 of the Masons.

Mr. Schulman's wife, Lillian, died in 1972. A brother, Abraham, of Washington, died in 1969 and a sister, Leah Levin, also of Washington, died in 1965.
