Maxwell House
Coffee—a Tradition

Some good things never
change . . . like Maxwell
House Coffee. Still famous
for its "good to the last
drop," it is a symbol of Jew-
ish hospitality after a half a
century and still certified
kosher.
Nothing beats a cheering
cup of hot Maxwell House as
a fine finish to a delicious
dinner or the perfect accom-
paniment to a special sweet.
Maxwell House is available
in instant and regular
grinds.

--
Members of the Meyer and Anna Prentis family and
Wayne State officials attended a luncheon at the Wayne
State University Medical School, Friday, following don-
ation of a $500,000 gift to the university in memory of
Helen Prentis Lande. Shown seated are Mrs. Lande's
aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Meyer Steinberg. Stand-
ing are, from left, WSU medical dean Robert Coye; Mrs.
Lande's sister, Mrs. Beverly Straus; WSU President
George E. Gullen Jr.; Mrs. Lande's sister, Mrs. Jewell
Morris; Lester Morris; and WSU deputy medical dean
Lawrence M. Weiner. The university will rename its
medical research building the Helen Vera Prentis Lande
Medical Research Building. A story in last week's Jew-
ish News erroneously identified a WSU apartment build-
ing as being named after the Prentis family. The WSU
School of Business Administration building is named for
the family.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••:

State University Press, the
346-page illustrated work
recaptures the glory of By-
zantium's 1,000-year his-
tory, from the founding of
Constantinople in 330 CE
to the fall of the capital to
the Turks in 1453 and the
establishment of the Otto-
man Empire.
The volume contains the
history of Doukas, one of
the four, translated into En-
glish and annotated for the
first time. Doukas, descen-
dant of one of the most fa-
mous families in Byzantine
history, relates the events of
the last century of the em-
pire. His knowledge of
Turkish and Italian as well
as his native Greek, enabled
him to transcribe eyewit-
ness accounts of the events
he records.
In his massive work,
Doukas has preserved the
sound and fury of the
death throes of the great-
est and longest-lived
Christian empire in his-
tory. The irreversible ad-
vance of the Ottoman
Turks, the distress and an-
guish experienced by the
Greek Christians at the
impending disaster, the
prophesies of false hope,
and the fate of the empire
being argued out over the
religious issue with Rome,
all form a part of the fasci-
nating history recorded by
this Byzantine author. He
ends his history in mid-
sentence as the Turks are
launching their final as-
sault on Mytilene on the
island of Lesbos in 1462.
Doukas provides cameo
portraits of key historical
figures. He describes the
pillage, slaughter, and en-
slavement of the Greek na-
tion, and he also records the
betrayal of the Byzantines
by their Christian allies.
