ed in 1945, and two years la-
ter—in her first major role—
she won an Academy nomin-
ation for "A Double Life,"

ful of Rain." Back in films,

visit from a pair of volun-
teers means a vital link with
the world outside their door.
It means two square meals
a day — but it also means
the warmth of human con-
tact.
Next Thursday, Meals on
Wheels, a cooperative ven-
ture of the National Council
of Jewish W o .m e n Detroit
Section and of the Jewish
Family and Children's Serv-
ice, will observe its f i r s t
birthday.
It's been a big year. The
program began with 21 cli-
ents, receiving one hot and
one cold kosher meal a day,
five days a week. Today, 150
volunteers are servicing 51
clients on six routes in De-
troit, Southfield, Oak Park
and Royal Oak.
Because the elderly fre-
quently neglect proper nutri-
tion—due either to lack of
concern or inability to get
out and shop—the prepared
meals are meant to improve
their mental and physical
health.
A typical hot meal, pre-
pared by Federation Apart-
ment cook Eva Bartos, in-
cludes cabbage soup, oven-
fried chicken, rice, cooked
beats and canned pears. The
cold meal, delivered at the
same time, may consist of
pineapple juice, tuna salad,
raw vegetables and a fresh
fruit, bread and milk. Special
provisions are made for
diabetics.
Social workers from JFCS,
under the direction of Hilary
Gitstein, interview and refer
all clients. The latter pay
what they can for the meals.
An important corollary is
the social contacts between
clients and volunteers. And
it is the latter who make the
program work, according to
NCJW co-chairmen Sonia
Macey and Dorothy Kauf-
man.
They listed such volunteers
as day chairmen Margery

Sonny Purther, Barbara Cull-
man, Shirley Ravet, Magery
Kurzmann, Florine Gaynes
and Barbara Kaufman.
Rita Bedrick is route chair-
man, Suzanne Hopp and Rose
Gould, supplies; Claire
Kretchmer, recruitment of
volunteers; Sus an Miller,
chairman of packers; and
Esther Rosenblum, treasurer.
Other volunteers work as
packers, drivers and person-
nel workers to do routing,
recruiting and ordering of
supplies .
Each day, a team arrives
at Federation Apartments at
9:30 a.m. to begin packaging
meals, first in individual con-
tainers, then in large thermal
cases. The day's drivers,
sometimes including men, ar-
rive at 10:45 to find the cases
ready for delivery.

LUBIN-JOSEPH: Mr. and
Mrs. Kenneth Joseph of Buf-
falo annonuce the marriage
of their daughter Arlene Ruth
to Robert Ira Lubin, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lubin of
Brooks Lane, Southfield. The
ceremony was performed re-
cently in Buffalo by Dr. Mar-
tin Goldberg of Temple Beth
Zion and Cantor Elliot Part-
ner of Park Synagogue, Clev-
eland. Mrs. Richard Mellin
of Pittsburgh was matron of
honor, and bridesmaids were
Mrs. Jay Levin of Detroit,
sister of the bridegroom, and
Margery Meyers of Pitts-
burgh. Barbara Meyers was
junior bridesmaid. Donald
Lubin, brother of the bride-
groom, was best man, and
ushers were Stuart Zwick
and Mark Heller, both of De-
troit. Following a trip to the
Catskills, the couple will live
in Cleveland.

a giving one — both ways.
One elderly woman knits
tams and scarves for her
young friends. Volunteers on
one route took their client to
the hospital to visit his ailing
wife — then drove him to the
bank and the market.
It is not a jab taken lightly.
Mrs. Macey and Mrs. Kauf-
man pointed out that the vol-
unteers know well how their
clients rely on them.
One driver, for example,
discovered that her partner
would not be able to accom-
pany her on the rounds that
morning. But her husband
had a day off, and the chil-
dren were out of school—the
answer to her predicament.
The kids helped load food
cases, while the husband-
wife team checked out their
route. It turned out to be a
special visit to one client,
who emerged from weeks of
depression at the sight of
her unexpected young guests.
Another volunteer, whose
car broke down en r oute,
learned that it would be hours
before the car could be re-
paired and she could make
her deliveries. She explained
her plight to the sympathetic

to his tow truck.
Off the volunteers went, to
deliver the Meals on (truck)
Wheels.
