The owner of a chain of clothing stores has set up a $20,000-a-year trust fund for a fashion model whose face was slashed in a razor attack last week, the New York Post said today. Milton Petrie, owner of the Petrie Stores, said he decided to help Marla Hanson, 24, after reading reports that she was slashed by two men allegedly hired by her former landlord. "I was very moved when I learned about her plight," the 83-year-old executive said.

The cost of checking into one of the city's seven motels would go up under a motel and hotel occupancy tax increase tentatively approved by the City Council Tuesday. The transient occupancy tax would increase from 8% to 10% if it receives final council approval. The 2% is expected to generate an additional $20,000 a year for the city. On a $35 single motel room, the tax is now $2.80. It would go to $3.50 under the proposed increase.
