Davison Kosher Meat Mar-
ket, a fish market and kosh-
er products delicatessen,
but has also added regular
meat counters, a second de-
licatessen and expanded fro-
zen, dairy and produce de-
partments.
The merging of Dexter-
Davison with Farmer Jack
brings together 100 years of
food marketing experience.

Borman's Inc.. parent
company of Farmer Jack,
began in 1927 when Tom
Borman opened his first
market in Detroit at Forest
and Twelfth St. By 1935
Tom and his brother Al had
10 markets. They split in
1940, with Al operating
"Food Fair - and Tom han-
dling "Lucky - markets.
in 1955 they merged, with
26 markets operated as
"Food Fair". During the
1960s, Bormans also oper-
ated seven Savon discount
markets and several K-
Mart supermarket loca-
tions. All the stores were
converted to Farmer Jack
Markets by 1967 and trad-
ing stamps were phased out
completely.
Borman's Inc. now oper-
ates 83 Farmer Jack stores,

Israeli — Tunisian
Handball Match --
Bereft of Politics

BEERSHEBA (JTA)—
For the first time. a match
was held between and Is-
raeli team and that of an
Arab country, according to
a spokesman for the Ben-
Gurion University of the
Negev.
He said that at an inter-
university handball tourna-
ment held last month in
West Germany, a team
from Ben-Gurion University
competed against a Tuni-
sian group from the Univer-
sity of Sfax. The Tunisians
won the contest by a score
of 6-5.
The match. which took
place at Malburg Univer-
sity in West Germany. was
totally free of the political
interference which has
marked other international
sports events. the univer-
sity spokesman noted.
Following the com-
petition, Adi Toker, Ben-
Gurion University athletics
director. and M. Noori. di-
rector of the Tunisian
team, exchanged invitations
for the two groups to visit
each other's campus.
Players on the two teams
became friendly during the
tournament and even danc-
ed the "hora" together at a
party hosted by the presi-
dent of Malburg University.
The match was the high-
light of a 15-game tour in
Germany and Denmark by
LI the Israeli team.

tler at the corner of Dexter

1938 the market became a
full-fledged grocery store.

Cottler, who has been ac-
tive in the Jewish commu-
nity, especially as treasurer

proud of the new Farmer

maining active at the store
which is going to maintain
its tradition of personal
service.
Cottler said the large vari-
ety of kosher and Israeli
products available at the
store will be expanded.
