"Isabel Rents" commenced
Detroit's most unique new busi-
ness on Tuesday, when . it
opened its doors at 18280 Liver-
nois, near Curtis.
Owned by Isabel (Mrs. Alan)
Grossman, the new business spe-
cializes in the rental of every-
thing for the party, banquet, or
reception, and in the sale of all
types of gifts.
The service of "Isabel Rents"
is unique because everything is
delivered to the customer
"Saran" wrapped and sterilized,
ready for use on the clients
table. This involves. a tremen-
dous savings since the expense
and time involved in washing
and cleaning the china and sil-
ver before use is eliminated.
Mrs. Grossrnan's new headquar-
ters is equipped with complete-
ly automatic dishwashing and
steriliiing equipinent to "assure
the highest standard of -clean-

recreation room but the rest of
the basement as well became
far too small.
When Mrs. Grossman started,
she purchased enough- china
ware, and other equipment to
serve 60 party guests. However,
word quickly spread that the
very "finest" in china, table-
ware, and linens could be
rented for parties at a nominal
cost. The demand became so
great that Mrs. Grossman, who
is now either called "Isabel"
or "Mrs. Rents" by her many
clients, has enough glassware,
silver, and fine china to service
3,000 people. She has serviced
as many as 20 different parties
on the very same date. Isabel's
one woman staff has now grown
to a staff of eight.

NEWARK, N. J., (JTA) —
New Jersey's ban on trading on
Sundays continued to be en-
forced following refusal last
week-end by a Federal Court
to disturb the enforcement of
this law.
In a 2 to 1 decision, the court
declined to issue a temporary
injunction sought by three
Orthodox Jews pending the out-
come of their suit before the
state's Supreme Court challeng-
ing the constitutionality of the
law on the basis that it violates
the First Amendment which
guarantees religious freedom.,
Counsel for the three Jewish
plaintiffs noted that their clients
observed the Jewish Sabbath
and closed their stores from
Friday sundown until Saturday
night. They argued that they
were being penalized for their
religious beliefs by being re-
quired to close on a day that
they did not observe as the sab-
bath.
The measure, which went
into effect on Nov. 29, bans
Sunday sales of clothing, home
and office furnishings, appli-
"ances and building material. I
