BY MITZI RACHLEFF
Mrs. Sol Q. Kesler, piano ac-
companist and active leader in
community and music organi-
zations, has retired from a
career spanning four decades
as a music teacher in the De-
troit Public Schools.
Dr. Sol Quentin Kesler, a
native of Paarl, South Africa,

MRS. SOL Q. KESLER

took Matilde Garvett as his
bride 40 years ago, the day
following his commencement
from the University of Michi-
gan Dental School. She was
.then teaching harmony and
composition at the Detroit-City
College (presently Wayne State
University).
When she came to Detroit
from her native Pittsburgh at
the age of seven, Mrs. Kesler
was already playing piano. Her
academic career includes stud-
ies at Wayne State and Colum-
bia College. She also studied

under London pianist Victor
Benham at the old Michigan
Conservardiry, and later with
Ola Dafoe-Eustice.
Mr. Kesler has appeared
with Gabrilovitch, famed first
conductor of the Detroit Sym-
phony, as accompanist for vio-
linist Henry Siegel, and many
other noted musicians, and
numerous choir directors. Her
recent retirement is from
Pershing High School where
she was vocal accompanist.
Her affiliation with music
clubs which have an educational
aspect indicates Mrs. Kesler's
personal philosophy of the ne-
cessity of music in everybody's
life. "The exciting, changing,
challenging nature of music,"
she says, "is vital to every per-
son, whether he be composer,
performer or simply a lay lis-
tener. I have always enjoyed ,
working with young people and
helping them advance their tal-
ents in a musical career."
The Tuesday Musicale, a pro-
fessional women's organization,
has Mrs. Kesler on its board of
directors. She is also a coun-
selor for the group's Student
League, composed of high
school and college aged girls
who meet at her home once a
month. For five years she was
treasurer of the Michigan
Federation of Music Clubs.
In addition, Mrs. Kesler is
immediate past-president of the
Detroit Women's. Symphony Or-
chestra, past-president of the
Music Study Club and is on the
board of trustees of the Detroit

Music Settlement School.
Aside from her musical in-
terests, Mrs. Kesler is a mem-
ber of the Sinai Hospital Wo-
men's League, the Women's
City Club and Temple Beth
El, where her brother Mor-
ris Garvett served as presi-
dent.
Mrs. Kesler initiated consecra-
tion services in Detroit. In 1935,
she says, she approached Rab-
bie Hershman of S h a a r e y
Zedek with the idea, and for
nine years she was consecra-
tion director there. Other syna-
gogues soon followed suit, says
Mrs. Kesler, and today there
are few religious schools which
do not honor their female gra-
duates in a similar way.
The Keslers' late daughter,
Susan, was graduated from the
University of Michigan at 19.
They have three grandchildren,
Debbie, 17; Julie, 15; and David,
11. The Keslers this week left
for a month's stay in London
for a family reunion with Dr.

Kesler's two brothers and a
sister.
"Our common language will
be Afrikaans, a combination
of Dutch and English," Mrs.
Kesler remarked. "My hus-
band has taught me some and
I picked up a little on our
last trip to South Africa. I
understand more than I can
speak but I always find the
challenge interesting."
Upon return from their vaca-
tion, Mrs. Kesler will continue
to play piano and remain active
in clubwork. Their residence at
201 E. Kirby, the Art Centre
Apartments, where the Kes-
lers have lived for 30 years,
will continue to be a center of
social activity, she promises.

Fisher Does Impromptu
Act at Grossinger's

Guests at the Grossinger Coun-
try Club, Grossinger, N. Y., are
still talking about the impromptu
performance Eddie Fisher re-
cently gave in the Terrace Room,
the resort's night club.
A few hours after he had
headlined the show in the Gros-
singer Playhouse,, the singing
star joined the guests in the
Terrace Room. In a relaxed
mood and informal manner, he
sang, conducted the orchestra,
led a community songfest, joked,
and danced for more than two
hours. Fisher enjoyed the fun
as much as the guests did.

Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Goldstein

Marking their 40th wedding
anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Abra-
ham Goldstein of 22552 Bell-
wood Dr., Southfield, contributed
$5,000 towards a Jewish Na-
tional Fund project in the Gadod
area in Israel.
The project to be set up in
their name will be within the
Mishmar Hayarden land devel-
opment program financed by the
Ladis' Auxiliary of the Jewish
National Fund.
. At a dinner given in honor of
the Goldsteins by a group of
their friends last Sunday night,
they were additionally honored
with the planting of three gar-
dens of trees in Israel through
the Jewish National Fund..
Abrahan Goldstein was born
in Trisk, Russia, and came to the
United States in 1907. He is a
member of the Masonic Order,
the Shrine, Bnai Brith, Temple
Israel and is active in the Jew-
ish National Fund. He is in
the men's clothing business in
Royal Oak.
His wife, Sima, was born in
Kovel, Russia, and came to this
country in 1920. She is active in
JNF, Hadassah, ORT, Denver
League, Zedakah Club, Sinai
Hospital League, Home for Aged
and Bar Ilan University.
The Goldsteins were married
in Detroit. They have a son, Dr.
Jack Gabe; a daughter, Mrs. Jack
Adelman, and six grandchildren.

The national anthem of Ma-
laya borrows its melody from
"Moonlight," an old love song
. . . Malayan musicians, how-
ever, are forbidden to play the
anthem as a love song.
