OUR MOM, MRS. MINNIE
RASKIN, celebrated her 80th
birthday last week, and if we do
say so ourselves, she gets better-
looking every day : . . Must be that
good clean living she always keeps
telling us about . . . A demon at
that poker table, she's still playing
on her winnings .. . At least, so
she says, and who are we to doubt
her . . . Only time mom ever told
anything not so was way back
when we all lived in a little apart-
ment on Woodrow Wilson and
Taylor . . . Marv, .L11 (now Mrs.
David A. Rosen,) Belle, Mom and
this baby of the family . Some
guy outside was picking up Belle
and as usual kept his hand on
the horn until she came out . .
She finally married him and mom
said Harry Weingarden would
never do it again . . . Boy, was
she wrong. . . . Mom's tough, too
. . . Lost almost a dollar at her
Saturday Poker Club recently and
almost tore the deck in half. . .
Mom is still a fancy dancer (we
can hardly keep up with her) and
likes a good joke or two or three
or . . . Oh, no, mom isn't all good
. . . she has her faults . . . like
worrying too much about her chil-
dren and their families, trying to
cook for anybody they bring over,
laughing at jokes even if they
aren't any good, wearing out part-
ners on the dance floor . . . and
above all, being so darned senti-
mental . . . Want to see Mom cry?
• .. Just send her one of those tear
jerking cards. . . . HAPPY BIRTH-
DAY TO MRS. MINNIE RASKIN,
the swellest mom a guy could ever
have. (Okay mom, take out the
