a lot on the ball and a very
pleasing personality.
The new menu at Dubbs
is much larger and exten-
sive than before ... includ-
ing a good "Dieter Delight"
selection.
READER SENDS a
menu from Lindy's in New
York ... not the original
one that isn't there any-
more, but an imitation at
Avenue of Americas and
50th, across the street from
Radio City Music Hall . . . "I
would not recommend it"
writes the reader.
The menu is loaded with
pictures of stars, present
and past, who have eaten at
Lindy's ... and old jokes ga-
lore fill the pages ... like,
Lindy's waiter: "We have
everything on the menu to-
day, sir." Jack E. Leonard:
noticed. Now give me a
clean one." ... or, Cus-
tomer: "What's this in my
soup?" Lindy's waiter:
"Don't ask me, sir. I don't
know one insect from an-
other." . . . or Morey
Amsterdam (to Lindy's
headwaiter): "By the way,
did that fellow who took our
order leave any family?".. .
or Customer: "Waiter, help!
My tablecloth is on fire."
Lindy's waiter: "I'm sorry,
sir, this is not my station."

The original Lindy's,
owned by Clara and Leo
Lindeman, was a New
York classic ... Celeb-
rities loved it there ...
and the comedian's
corner was a private sec-
tion for people like Mil-
ton Berle, Red Skelton,
Joey Adams, Bob Hope,
Jack Benny, Jackie
Gleason, Jack E.
Leonard, Groucho Marx,
Fred Allen and others
who would try out their
jokes on each other.

Nobody knows who is re-
sponsible for this one (or
claims to be) ... "Waiter,
what's this fly doing in my
soup?" Waiter: "The
backstroke."

they used to be anywhere
. in New York or in De-
troit. When I left Modern
Delicatessen, about 1973, I
had just raised the price of
our corned beef sandwich to
$1.00 (and wondered if I was
doing the right thing) — If
you recall Modern ... the
corned beef was always cut
by hand and had anywhere
from 4. to 6 oz., which was
about the heaviest sand-
wich in town. ,
"After I left Modern I
moved to a horse farm in
Howell, Mich. and spent a
few years breeding, train-
ing and boarding horses. In
1976, because of illness, I
was forced to give up the
farm and moved back to
Southfield. I'm happy to say
that I am getting back in
shape and feeling my oats.
"Thought you might like
to hear a few things that
have happened to me just
receptly. Though I have not
been out much until the
past couple of months ...
wherever I do go, I am re-
minded of the good old days.

"A while back, I met a
young lady who ap-
proached me to say that
she recognized me and
she was the niece of Dar-
bys executive chef John
Kereszi. In May, I
attended the Bar Mitzva
(Northland Inn) of Paul
Kerner, son of Lou and
Bernard of Darbys.

"At the Bar Mitzva, I saw
my cousins Edna and Sam
Boesky looking fantastic. It
was nice talking about the
old days. Also present was
Sol Boesky (Sam's brother)
and former owner of Sid's on
East Warren.
"A few months ago, in the
lobby of my apartment, I
was recognized by Gail
Ryder, who is the
granddaughter of our be-
loved little (Darbys) Jewish
cook 'Mama' Levitt ... and
Wendy Chaderoff, the
granddaughter of Dr. Ben-
jamin Schlain. Dr. Schlain
and his office on W. Grand
Blvd. near 12th and then
one block from Darbys .
and he was responsible for
the health of many of our
children, including my
three.
"About six weeks ago, I
met a lady who, on discover-
ing that I was an old deli
man, but who did not know
me, commenced to tell me
about the fantastic trays
(her words) she used to get
from Darbys. I thanked her.
It certainly is nice to know
that people remember your
work — even 12 years later.

Henry Kissinger's Regret

LONDON (ZINS) —
Former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger re-
cently told a British report-
ers that his failure to press
Israel to pull out of the West
Bank in 1974 "was one of
the greatest regrets of my
office."
Kissinger said if the U.S.

had dealt with the Palesti-
nians and the West Bank at
the time of the disengage-
ment agreements a true
peace would have resulted.

He said Watergate anti
the installation of a new Is-
raeli government blocked
those moves.

"Two months ago I had
a visitor from California.
Ceil Feldman, formerly
one of Darbys finest
and her
waitresses,
daughter Denise, went to
Uncle Harry's Delicates-
sen on Little Mack (east
side), had lunch, some
dandy tasting cheese

cake (nine flavors) and
talked about the old days
at Darbys.
"A few days ago, some
friends took me out to De-
nny's on Greenfield at 11
Mile ... On the way out I
heard, 'Hey, got a corned
beef in your pocket?' Yes, it
was an old customer from
Modern Deli (which was
ruled for may years by the
Krugel family and then by
Dick and George
Gunsberg).
"And again, at Denny's,
an elderly gentleman
(former Darbys patron) who
said his wife recognized me
but could not remember
from where. His name was
Sam and he left convinced
that I was a 'singer' they
saw in Phoenix ... Burl
Ives.
"Years ago, Charlie Melt-
zer owned the Star Baths
(which then became the
Oakland Health Club) and I
started my education (at 13)
in the food business making
cabbage soup, broiling
steaks, cutting corned beef,
etc. along with my brother
Harry.

"In 1940, I recall buying
aged rib steaks for 24
cents a pound, skinless
and boneless sardines for
10 cents a can. Selling a
