DANNY RASKIN

IT'S ALWAYS A beauti-
ful day annually when
Crescent Shrine Club takes
almost 1,500 to the Shrine
Circus . . . as shirt-sleeve
weather accompanied the
circus excitement.
How about the kid in line
outside staring at me wear-
ing a Shriner's fez and say-
ing, "Hey Dad! Look at the
clown!" . . . Would have
been funny, but this was the
first circus he had ever
attended . . . and maybe his
last . . . The youngster was
an advanced leukemia vic-
tim.
The volunteer members
of Crescent Shrine Club
were on hand early, as every
year, to brunch and munch
on the bagels, rolls, lox and
cream cheese that have be-
come almost as much a part
of the day as the circus it-
self.
Plenty of food this year
. . . with Bill Love and Jody
Wiener doing their usual
fine job in doling out the
sandwiches . . . eaten as fast
as they were made . . . Jody
spreading the cream cheese
and Bill putting on the lox
. . . one piece, regardless of
guys asking for more . . . No
running out this time .. .
Bill and Jody wanted to
make sure everybody got
fed . . . and not just one
sandwich either . . . All
were giving their day to
help the underprivileged,
physically handicapped, re-
tarded, blind and leukemia
victims.
About the blind, they
wear ear phones, through
which is explained every-
thing going on . . . They
laugh, they scream, they
applaud with joy . . . The
sightless ones may not be
able to see what's going on,
but they can smell the saw-
dust and feel the excitement
. . . That voice into their
earphones adds to joy of
being at the circus.
Lots of old faces . . . some
new ones . . . Percy Swartz
comes in each year from
Scottsdale, Ariz. to photog
at circus . . . This year, son
Barry came in from North
Carolina where he has lived
past five years to be with
Dad . . . and help on the
camera-clicking . . . Marvin
Laker and daughter Carol
have come together all but
one of at least past 15 years
. . Marvin's tenure at
Shrine Circus is 35 years.
Nate Trager still with the
waxed mustache . . . Albert
"Sonny" Goldstein a very ef-
fervescent chairman .. .
Charlie Robinson retired
after 50 years working .. .
26 years with Shell Gas
( what's this about the new
owners at his former Green-
field and Nine station hav-
ing the air under lock and
key now?) . . . and before
that in clothing biz.
Lou Melton still with the
pipe, opening third "Yetta's
Things" in another building
at complex housing Jac-
ques' on Telegraph in Bin-
gham Farms . . . Ray Has-
san, junior deacon of Perfec-

tion Masonic Lodge and
Crescent board member.
Abe Saginaw, charter
member of Crescent, at
Shrine Circus since begin-
ning, celebrated 91st birth-
day in March . . . Herman
Osnos, another charter
member,
celebrated
number 83 last September.
Ruby Samson looking
good in all-brown outfit to
match tanned face . . . Ed
Hoffman with camera strap
around his neck . . . Bill
Gorelik "retired" but still
columnist for Crescent
News and Moslemite mag
. . . Charter House organ he
started as a hobby year ago
is now very much looked for
by the residents . . . Al
Selick anxiously awaiting,
with wife Shirley, arrival
from California of daughter
and son-in-law Michelle
and Paul Kaplan to attend
graduation exercises of
other daughter, Marcia,
this month from Eastern
University.
Merwin Solomon, Cres-
cent Shrine official photog,
has been behind the circus
camera ten years . . . but
was in the drum and bugle
corps five years previous .. .
Judge Al Betz ready for re-
turn to the bench after his
"vacation" . . . Sol Lakind
checking everyone in . . .
Ruby Kress making sure
plenty of hot dogs for all.
Non-member Sheldon
Levenson volunteering
services and working before
being hospitalized for foot
surgery . . . Marvin Can-
vasser as usual picking up
and directing the leukemia
kids . . . Sylvia Brown,
former Leukemia Founda-
tion executive director,
looking radiant.
Yet another year . . . it's
been so many . . . with
elephant in Shrine Circus
wearing sign, "Gurwin's
Autobody Klinic" . . . Sort of
wouldn't seem the same
without Jerry Gurwin's
elephant.
You looked around inside
. . . saw the laughing faces
and wild-eyed joy . . . and
knew why so many wonder-
ful fellows give their time
each year to helping on
Crescent Shrine Day . . .
along with the other Shrin-
ers who beam when they
make a kid happy.
This is what the Shrine
Circus is all about, my
friends . . . just a segment of
the Shrine workings that no
man stands taller than
when he helps an unfortu-
nate child.
BERNARDI'S Restau-
rant in Applegate Square on
Northwestern Hwy., has re-
ceived a "fresh" liquor
license from the Southfield
City Council . . . It is not one
previously owned by former
tenant, Ala Cart, whose
license is still in escrow.
REMY BERDY, execu-
tive chef at Sheraton-Oaks
in Novi, will be on J.P.
McCarthy's "Focus" show
over WJR Radio, April 30,
12:30 p.m.
SUCH A GREAT cause

AFTER 40 YEARS -

. . . and so wonderful a sec-
ond anniversary celebra-
tion . . . The combination at
Dimitri's of Southfield, 10
Mile and Southfield, gave
almost a thousand people
pleasant opportunity to
happily give their token
door fee for Special Olym-
pics.
Owner Dimitri Syros
went all out . . . Everything
except the booze was free .. .
Enough food for two an-
niversary parties . . . and it
wasn't run-of-the-mill stuff,
either . . . all kinds of delici-
ous preparations, Greek
and American . . . that had
so many folks coming back
for more.
Lots of folks having such
a good time . . . with two
strolling gypsy bands . . . a
bouzouki orchestra, belly
