LISTENING
POST

MANY PEOPLE have
wondered . . . as did this
writer . . . why Sid Hudson's
obituary notice wasn't ever
sent to Detroit . . . I know it
would have been one of his
greatest wishes.
Being a former Detroiter
'Sid Hudosh), he never for-
t his roots here and was a
onstant temporary visitor
. .. seeing his multitude of
friends . . . plus having local
relatives.
Sid moved to California
. . . went into the shoe busi-
ness . . . and in 1947, when
Ben "Bugsy" Siegel learned
he was going to make Las
Vegas his home, invited
him to move into the
Flamingo . . . Sid told Siegal
he couldn't afford it and was
promptly informed, "I'm not
going to charge you any-
thing" . . . However, since
Sid wanted to pay, Siegel
gave him a rental rate of
$150 a month that included
maid and telephone service,
etc. . . . Throughout the
32-year stay at the luxury
resort, a period that
spanned 15 owners, Sid's
rent remained at $150 a
month.
Originally, he lived in a
suite near Siegel's penth-
ouse, which was on the sec-
ond floor of the Oregon
Bldg., once the hotel's main
wing. Sid used to laugh that
he always had to use the
stairs in those days because
Siegel would have the
elevator to the second floor
constantly tied up.
Sid was owner of Hudson
Cleaners ... with a main
plant on the Strip plus in
many of the Vegas hotels
. . . He was the 1978 City of
Hope Man of The Year .. .
and recognized constantly
for his many contributions
to worthy causes . . . The list
of people Sid helped is in-
numerable . . . and never
asking to get paid back .. .
He always acknowledged
the smile of a waitress and
the attentiveness of a bus-
boy with much more than
generous tips.
There is a Sid Hudson
Foundation at the City of
Hope in Duarte, Calif. . . .
founded for colitis and
ileitis research . . . His gifts
to other charities were
including
umerous,
Cunningham's
other
leocus Hope in Detroit
among others.
He was a good friend to
have . . . sad to lose . . . Sid
will be missed by many .. .
friends, acquaintances and
people who never met him.

c

BIRTHDAY CON-
GRATS . . . to Percy Swartz

. . . on number 75 . . . He
spent the May 27 date driv-
ing to Nashville, Tenn. for a
little birthday party with
daughter Shari . . . It was a
double celebration with
granddaughter Debra also
having her 11th birthday
the following day.
Percy and Shari drove to
Scottsdale, Ariz. where wife
Lil met them at the new

Swartz home (7844 E.
Buena Terra Way,
Scottsdale, Ariz. 85253).

LEONID SHAYKHET,

kung fu master here from
Russia less than two years,
is slated to be on TV Chan-
nel 7's top-rated Kelly &
Company show sometime in
June . . . Lee was recently
on Joan Wittenberg's "Hot
Line To Health" over
WCAR radio (heard Mon-
days 12 noon to 1 p.m.)
IS IT TRUE . . . that a
Tony Roma is taking over
the former site of Friday's in
the Pine Lake Mall, Or-
chard Lake and Pine Lake
Rd.? . . . It is closed . . . and
in the meantime, the folks
of Comedy Kingdom are
looking for a new home .. .

GRANDMOTHERS
ARE grandmothers . . . the

world over . . . and so Leah
Rabin, wife of former Is-
raeli Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin, in town for a
recent Hadassah - Israel
Bonds luncheon . . . did
what grandmothers like to
do most . . . overindulge
their grandchildren . . .
Marilyn Frumkin, public
relations director of Israel
Bonds, took her to a local
store . . . to buy oodles of
toys for her grandchildren
in Israel.

STUART AND MAR-
JORIE Hochman have

moved to San Francisco,
where he is with Cadillac
Fairview as vice president

He was former director of
real estate for General
Motors . . . Both were hosted
by barrister Robert Meisner
and wife Joan at a cham-
pagne reception and
farewell dinner in the 11th
floor private dining roof of
Money Tree restaurant.
LOOKING BACK On
Columns of Yesteryears .. .
Feb. 20, 1970 . . . "CPA
Sam Wilson, a former
Internal Revenue man him-
self, tells about the tax col-
lector examining the books
of a defiant, but slightly
worried supermarket prop-
rietor when the clerk,
climbing aloft to fetch a can
of preserved peaches, upset
a whole pyramid of the mer-
chandise.
"Cans came tumbling
down on the tax collector's
noggin, sending him
sprawling to the ground .. .
`Be careful, you fool,' cried
the proprietor. 'Supposing
that had been a customer!'
