AS FASHION SHOWS
go, I can take them or leave
them ... That is, most of
them ... It was such a pleas-
ure to see one put on by
Leah Marks (Mitch) ... a
beautiful model today ...
and an Israeli soldier 18
years ago.
Unlike so &any faihion
shows, it was quick-paced
and expertly coordinated to
attract full attention from
beginning to end ... Each
model took four changes
and it was enough for a very
pleasant evening at
Wabeek Clubhouse.
The colorful clubhouse
was enhanced by balloons
at all tables ... the buffet
was a delicious array of
goodies ... and about 200
people in the audience_
thoroughly enjoyed Leah's
wonderful coordination
say nothing of the glamor-
ous women's styles and
men's fashions.
The models couldn't be
much better in enhancing
the apparel of shops like
Madeline's and Kosins
Lois (Gendel) Pershin
looks better than she did
years ago when winning
a Queen Esther contest
given by this column ...
plus Audrey Weinberg,
Shirley Becker, Leah and
others.
The fashion show wasn't
only on the runway ... Some
of the guests had their own
show Like Stu Gorelick
with polka dot tie and
pocket hankie ... Ronnie
Stern without a tie he wears
all day ... Mitch Marks join-
ing Ronnie's style because
he left his luggage at a
warehouse in New York
from where he had just ar-
rived ... The two of them
being the only guests with
open collar made each stand
out with fashion.
And big news for men! ...
Don't throw away your old
clothes! ... Bi-swing jackets
are back ... as well as high
vents and wide lapels,
squared shoulders, etc. ...
And for the gals, you'd be
surprised at what styles are
returning!
MARK WEIN, son of
Dena Wein, was inducted
last week into the National
Honor Society at Ferndale
High School ... Mark is a
junior and has made Dena a
very proud mother indeed.

Kong, seven cities in China

centric writer, was named

and Southfield Rd., brother
Gene Rose and partner Ted
Wolf accepted an award in
Midland, Mich., for a tree
planting project in Keep
Michigan Clean ... Country

Daughter Tzviah, breeder

behalf ... Shirlee was nomi-
nated by Naomi Siegel of

CHAIRLASSIES of the
now famous fashion spree
clothing sale by National
Council ofJewish Women at
Southfield Civic Center,
were Sandy Leshman and
Riasa Winkelman ... About
$55,000 was raised ... and
the overwhelming crowds
put even more impetus for it
to be an annual event.

By WARREN FREEDMAN
It is now readily accepted

that Shakespeare's version
of the Shylock story (in "The
Merchant of Venice") was
based in part on a true story
in whcih the Jew was the
victim and a Gentile was
the villain.
The incident took place in
16th Century Venice where
one Paolo Secchi demanded
a pound of flesh from his
Jewish debtor Samson Ces-
sena. The Pope in Rome was
so horrified at the ferocity of
the idea that he intervened
to save the Jewish debtor,
according to Jewish histo-
rian Sir Cecil Roth.
Furthermore, since Jews
had left England or had
been converted in Shakes-
peare's time it is highly

Anti-Semitism
Becomes Issue
in NY Campaign

NEW YORK — Accusa-
tions of anti-Semitism sur-
faced last week in the cam-
paign between two candi-
dates for Manhattan bor-
rough president.
Andrew J. Stein, the
Democratic incumbent, said
it was "wrong" that his Lib-
eral Party opponent, David
N. Dinkins, had waited
until the last minute to dis-
avow anti-Semitic state-
ments by some of his sup-
porters.
There have been state-
ments that "smack of anti-
Semitism," according to
Dinkins. However, Dinkins
said "I absolutely reject and
condemn those thoughts."

Imported Cults
Worry Israel

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
New Deputy Education
Minister Miriam Glazer-
Ta'Asa has taken on "im-
ported" religious cults—in-
cluding the Transcendental
Meditation movement of
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi —
calling them "a grave
danger to the youngsters
joining them."
Glazer-Ta'Asa estimated
that "thousands" of Israelis
follow the guru, primarily
between ages 16-26. The
deputy minister's an-
nouncement followed con-
tact with "worried parents"
and the recent cancelling
under pressure from Jewish
leaders-of an international
"Moonies" conference slated
for Jerusalem.
