The definition: "Used by

for a hilly terrain."
Another cherished theory
was shattered by a group
of spoil-sport scientists in England. They went out into the teeth
of a storm and slogged about all day in the slush wearing spring
overcoats, wet socks and shoes. Two days later they had caught
fewer colds than another group with boots, overshoes, heavy
coats, and mufflers!
Spokesmen for this same lot of dare-devil investigators further

Because all of thiS takes place
during the emergence of Israel,
and the fight for independence by
Jews, and because Maureen's
father is an Irish patriot, there
develops also a deep interest in
Israel. Jack has a desire to join
in the fight in Israel's behalf.
Maureen wants to join him in the
flight to the Middle East. They
actually make a pact to escape
from Brooklyn. They go—and they
land in Lakewood, N. J.
That's where they both take a
room in a motel, have their little
affair, go in search of chicken
farms. While their respective
families are distressed over their
disappearance, Mrs. Sonya also
vanishes and gets to Lakewood.
A Jewish farmer goes to Brook-
lyn to arrange to take Sylvia
and Michael to Sonya, and then
to return all of them to Brooklyn.
On that visit to Lakewood, Jack
and Maureen also are spotted
and there is a mass return to
This takes place after the Holy
Days, and at Sukkbt time. Mau-
reen shows an interest in a Sukkah.
While there is an element of infi-
delity on Jack's part, the story
itself is filled with so many delight-
ful incidents—to indicate there is
no escape from Brooklyn, that the
traditional elements give Ayalti's
story special flavor. Maureen's
Jewish "knowledge," Mrs. Sonya's
resort to the Tzeenah U-Reenah
which in this story is referred to
as "The Woman's Bible," a n d
other wholesome elements make
this a commendable novel.
There is an interesting introduc-
tory explanatory note about the
Tzeenah U-Reenah — "Go Forth
and Behold."
"No Escape From Brooklyn"
will delight readers of all faiths,
and those who know Yiddish will
be especially charmed by it.

Ayalti's Fine Story, 'No Escape From
Brooklyn,' Translated from Yiddish

No one explores so many
detours as a woman ap-
proaching middle age ..

The modern wife is sup-
posed to look like a girl,
behave like a lady, think
like a man and work like
a dog , . .

THE NEW le in

Mr. James Kraft, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hannan Kraft of Hendrie
Blvd., Huntington Woods, is visiting his great-grandfather, Rabbi
Joseph Eisenman in Jerusalem.
Among the guests at the recent 50th anniversary party for Mr. and
Mrs. Hyman Max of Sturtevant Ave. was Mr. Max's sister, Mrs. Sarah
Balsky of Toronto.
Out-of-town guests who attended the recent engagement party of
Barbara Gooze to Michael Ephraim, were Mr. and Mrs. I. Philip Siegel,
sons Alan and Johnny of Hudson, N.Y.
At the Lafayette Towers East, Mr. Joel Norman Rott held a formal
dinner party for a few intimate friends. The theme of the dinner party
was a "Night in Italy" in honor of Misses Toby Schwartz and Elaine
Rosenthal's forthcoming European trip.
Mr. and Mrs. Abe Kahan, former residents of Oak Park now resid-
ing in Los Angeles, entertained for their daughter Miriam on the
occasion of her sixteenth birthday. A luncheon was held at The Luau in
Beverly Hills on July 23 for 40 of Miriam's friends and relatives.
Mrs. Max Ducker and son Martin of Tyler Ave., will spend a few
weeks in Washington and Virginia.

Hanan J. Ayalti writes in He-
brew and in Yiddish. His stories
have appeared in English transla-
tion in national magazines. His
first full-length novel, "No Escape
From Brooklyn", published by
Twayne (31 Union Sq. W., NY 3),
has been splendidly translated into
English from the Yiddish by two
able writers, Jacob Sloan and
Jackson Mac Low.
It is an interesting story with
plenty of humor and a remarkably
fine collection of Yiddish sayings,
ably translated in footnotes. The
author has been acclaimed as a
disciple of Sholem Aleichem.
The Yiddish wisdom with which
this narrative is studded justified
the ascription to the writer of the
appellation of the "incarnation" of
the most eminent of Yiddish hu-
"No Escape Frob Brooklyn"
is the story of a young man who
has a candy store, sells news-
papers, has a busy life support-
ing himself, his wife, small son
and his mother-in-law. The latter
occupies an important part in
the story because of her constant
desire to go back to the old world
and her habit of disappearing.
Her son-in-law is on a search for
her as the story commences and
it is then that he meets the
"shiksa" — Maureen O'Brien.
Thus it is the story of Jack and
his wife Sylvia, her mother Mrs.
Sonya, their son Michael and
eventually the Lakewood farm-
ers who are joined in the plot.
Maureen helps Jack find Mrs.
Sonya. A friendship is established.
She begins to visit his store, helps
take care of the young son, helps
in the store, and until she gets a
full-time job she is the helper of
this Brooklyn Jewish family.
She had already known some
Jewish terms, because of previous
friendships, and a sort of "Abie's
Irish Rose" develops.
