THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Danny Raskin's

LISTENING
POST

ON A RECENT Satur-
day night, Esther Marks,
her escort from Indianapolis
and Myron and Helyn Col-
eman stopped off at the
Pointe After Deli ... On the
way, they had played a word
game naming 10 3-letter
parts of the body, in good
taste ... Out-of-towner Al,
got so carried away with the
game that at the deli, he of-
fered their young waitress
$100 if she could come up
with the 10 body parts in 10
minutes . .. Within the al-
loted time, the young lady
rushed to the table with the
correct words and was
promptly handed $100 ...
She was naturally excited
and insisted on picking up
the check.
Formerly of the Skin
Shop, Esther has opened a
Bag and Jewelry Boutique
at Carlyle Towers on Provi-
dence Drive.
BIRTHDAY CON-
GRATS to Rose Bob-
roff on number 80 ... still
referred to by her chil-
dren and friends as "Miss
Nate" because for 40
years she ran the grocery
store on Hastings and Le-
land known as Nate's
Market.
Can't believe it's 46
years since we used to
visit the Bobroff house on
Carter ... Rose had a dog
named Trixie and we
were there when she gave
birth to a litter ... We
thought the puppies
would never stop coming!
COMIC
JACKIE
VERNON
has been
scheduled for Crescent
Shrine's 24th Birthday
Party, Sept. 24, at Raleigh
House ... It's the most
elaborate yearly affair
given by the Crescent ...
Accompanting Vernon will
be five lovely lassies for
strolling music during din-
ner . and a dance band for
terpsi fun.

MAIL DEPT. ... "I

think it would be nice if they
had benches in front of the
Federation Building on 10
Mile, so our senior citizens
could enjoy the fresh air in
the summer months. I drove
by and there isn't a bench to
be seen on 10 Mile. If the
Federation Building doesn't
have funds for it, maybe
some civic-minded citizens
could contribute some ... It
wouldn't cost much and rm
sure our senior citizens
would enjoy them.
"Also, please tell your
senior citizens not to jay
walk near 10 Mile & Green-
field. I've seen them cross in
the middle of the street on
Greenfield."
CORRECT DATE of the
Annual Carnival for Mus-
cular Dystrophy by Bedford
area residents, is Aug. 13,
12 noon to 6 p.m. . . . at
29709 Brentwood, South-
field, home of Judy and
Jerry Weisman.
It all started six years ago
when two youngsters, Ernie

Backalar and Laurie Phil-
lips, asked Jerry if they
could use his home for a
muscular dystrophy carni-
val . . . It's grown ever since.
REGARDS . . . from
Mollie and Ludwig Boraks
... in Largo, Fla.
BURT MARKOWITZ
was 313 pounds and waist
size 59 when he began his
diet ... Burt has lost the 83
lb. pot belly and now wears
a size 39.
MOTHER
AND
DAUGHTER team, Sylvia
and Rochelle Barr, will give
a two-piano concert for
friends at Rochelle's home
this week ... after playing
together for four years ...
Both were accomplished
pianists in their student
years ... and it took almost
25 years for Rochelle to per-
suade her mother to take
seriously a desire to perform
as a piano duo.
LOOKING BACK On
Columns of Yesteryears ...
AUG. 6, 1948 ... "Im-
agine being in a strange
country . . . among strange
people ... and suddenly
running into someone from
back home ... maybe a
friend, or an acquaintance
. or perhaps some persons
who went to the same school
as you did ... or ate at the
same restaurants . . . or
played on the same corner
lot ... or knew a couple of
the same people you did ...
This is happening to a group
of Detroit boys ... in Pales-
tine fighting with Hagana
... Instances such as the
time about 1:30 p.m. .. .
when gunfire began break-
ing out in the streets . .. fol-
lowing arrival at 12 'mid-
night of the Irgun ship, Al-
talena ... Joe Fink was
crawling on his hands and
knees ... pawing his way
forward ... and touched a
foot in front of him that be-
longed to Rudy Newman...
buddy from back home ...
In the same breath ... and
seemingly ignoring the
gunfire ... they yelled out
each other's name ... and
exclaimed, "What're you
doing here?" ... although
the reasons are as countless
as the desert sands . - - Two
have recently returned
home ... Fink and Sherrel
Gordon ... with many re-
gards to friends of those still
fighting with the Israeli
Army ... and a promise to
visit their parents ... Joe
served as a bombardier and
gunner ... while Sherrel
was an air corps pilot and
photographer ... Among
the other boys over there . .
Herbert Hordes, Jimmy
Kane, Gershon Bloom,
Dave Fink and Bob Levy .
There's a Windsor boy also
... Eddie Nelson, radio
man."

For 2,000 years has our
nation committed a great
sin, the sin of weakness and
absence of boldness and
courage.
— Chaim Arlozorov
