Single Mothers by Choice
(SMBC), a kind of mutual aid
society organized by Jane Mattes,
a New York City psychotherapist,
who described the development
and functions of SMBC at a
luncheon sponsored by the
American Jewish Committee ear-
lier this year and elaborated on
the rationale and activities of the -
group in several telephone inter-
views with the Jewish Telegaphic
Agency.
She said SMBC has a mailing
list of about 1,000 women and
holds monthly meetings at a
nearby church. The group holds
"thinkers series" sessions three
Monday nights a month, on alter-
nate months, to discuss the pros
and cons of unwed motherhood.
Attendance at those sessions is
restricted to ten women so that
their concerns can get thorough
attention.
The group also holds two social
events each year and 65 members
attended the most recent one. In-
dicating she did not know the per-
sonal histories of many of the
members, including a number of
out-of-town members, Ms. Mattes
estimated that about half of the
unwed mothers are Jewish.
About 75 percent of the unwed
mothers use artificial insemina-
tion because they feel it is not fair
to involve a man in such a situa-
tion, according to the
psychotherapist. She said a great
deal of information is available
about the donor of the sperm, in-
cluding whether he is Jewish, his
race, his family background and
related information.
The group, small in number ini-
tially, began meeting in 1981 and
was incorporated as a non-profit
organization under state law in
1983.

De Roy played
integral part
in auto history

Detroiters have always revered
their automotive legends — men
such as Henry Ford, the Fishers,
Lee Iaccoca and Aaron De Roy.
Aaron De Roy? The Jewish auto
executive may not be a household
name, but to many, De Roy's role
in Motor City history was just as
important as the roles of other,
more familiar pioneers.
De Roy, who was born in
Pittsburgh 104 years ago, came to
Detroit in 1923. The Pittsburgh
Studebaker distributor worked
for the Hudson Essex Automobile
Co. upon his arrival before found-
ing the De Roy Car Co.
A well-known business and
civic leader, De Roy was active in
the Detroit Automobile Dealers
Association and contributed to
the creation of the Detroit Zoo.
Among his zoo contributions was
a gift of two giraffes.
In addition to his passion for
cars, De Roy possessed a love for
the water and his yacht, the
Yoreda (A. De Roy spelled back-
wards), was launched in Bay City
durign the spring of,1929.
Ironically, De Roy was killed in
an automobile accident near
Hartsville, S.C. in 1935.
