New Lido Spa Program .
for Widows, Divorcees
MIAMI BEACH—Along with Flor-
ida sunshine, Lido Spa is offering
a helping hand and gearing a new
program to the woman who loses
her husband through death or di-
Vera Herman, the spa's head
dietitian, said the intent is to "place
her in a beautiful, new setting, and
in a situation where she won't have
to make decisions or worry about
what to do, where to go and all the
things that plague widows and di-
vorcees when they're first facing a
Although catering to cuples as
well as single women, the Lido
Spa places the emphasis on inform-
ality and relaxation.
"Often during emotional stress
women turn to food for solace,"
Miss Herman explained. "That
extra weight they gain is difficult
to shed because of lack of physical
activity, a sedentary way of life
and a slower metabolism.
"Because they're on custom-tail-
ored diets, our guests lose an aver-
age of four pounds a week, instead
of gaining weight as they usually
do at a regular resort."
Activities are planned so the
greater part of the day is filled
with massages, exercise classes,
slimnastics, whirlpool and steam
baths, sauna, sunning and swim-
ming. There's free golf and tennis.

HARRY KEMELMAN, author of
the best-selling mysteries "Friday

back on the Fawcett Crest list with
his new collection of murder stories
featuring Nicky Welt, "The Nine
Mile Walk." The book was publish-
ed as a paperback recently. Nicky
Welt is nearly as well known to
mystery fans as Kemelman's other
"detective," Rabbi David Small.
"In a sense," Kemelman's remarks
in his introduction to his new book,
"Rabbi David Small can be said to
be the son of Prof. Nicholas Welt."
