MRS. GERALD BROOCK
Fern Naomi Bronson became the
bride of Dr. Gerald Jay Broock
in a recent evening ceremony at
the Pontchartrain Hotel. Rabbi M.
Robert Syme officiated, and Can-
tor Harold Orbach was soloist.
Parents of the couple are Mr.
and Mrs. Irving Bronson of Bir-
wood Ave. and Mr. and Mrs. Louis
Broock of Dayton.
Mrs. Joel Levine of Toledo,
the bridegroom's sister, was
matron of honor, and Charlene
Broock, another sister of the
bridegroom, was bridesmaid.
Best man was Ronald Finkel-
man of Dayton. Richard Broock of
Dayton served his brother as
usher, along with Joel Levine and
Dr. Herbert M. Gardner.
The couple plans to live in
Tacoma, Wash., a year before Dr.
Broock takes up his residency in

1881 through 1887. They were re-
leased by the U. S. Treasury in
Washington about a year ago and
most of them quickly found their
way into the hands of collectors
and others who realize the pre-
sent and potential value of silver
dollars that are so scarce that
thousands of numismatists across
the country are trying to lay hands
on them, in singles and in lots.
As many as 2,000 showed up in
a single day at the height of the
"run" when the treasury discovered
the pile of silver in vaults where
it had been placed many years ago
and all but forgotten.
One dealer is said to have
offered $40,000 for a bag of the
precious Morgan dollars which had
been minted in 1879.
Deutsch said that families are
opening separate accounts for hus-
band and wife and in some cases
other members of the family, in
order to get as many of the scarce
silver dollars as they can while
the getting is good,
