THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

SIX MINUTES . . . that's
all it took to formally dedi-
cate the Jewish Sports Hall
of Fame at Jewish Commu-
nity Center last week ...
Short short wordage and
ribbon-cutting all in the
mini-span of time ... Jim
Grossman, executive director,
emceed the fast-moving pace
which also, included Al Foon,
president speaking for just 20
seconds and cutting the rib-
bon a couple of times (extra
was for photographers) . . .
and Mort Plotnick, executive
director of JCC,' whose un-
ending cooperation is so very
much appreciated by the
energetic and very enthusias-
tic board members.
A moment of silent prayer
was also part of the cere-
monies ... in memory of
Hank Greenberg.
Second year of Michigan
Jewish Sports hall of Fame
will induct Mery Pregulman,
all-American tackle at Uni-
versity of Michigan in 1943,
and in NFL with Green Bay
Packers and Detroit Lions
1946 to 1949 ... Byron
Krieger, two-time Olympic
fencer in 1952 and 1954, plus
member of gold medal-
winning Pan-American fenc- ,
ing squad in 1951 ... Along
with credits that included
All-American fencer at
Wayne State and NCAA foil
champion in 1942, he also
won the 1957 Maccabiah
Games sabre title, plus 55
state and Midwest cham-
pionships in all three fencing
weapons ... The late Phillip
"Cincy" Sachs, "Mr. Basket-
ball" around these parts, was
elected to the Michigan
Sports Hall of Fame in 1973
... AS a coach, his teams
won 28 championships and
top honors in seven Michigan
AAU tourneys ... Many will
remember "Cincy", in bas-
ketball 50 years, as player,
teacher, tournament promo-
ter, coach, Detroit Pistons
scout and referee on amateur,
semi-pro and professional
levels.
The three will be inducted
into the Michigan Jewish
Sports Hall of Fame, Nov. 25,
at its Second Annual Dinner,
Cong. Shaarey Zedek
General chairmen will be
William Davidson (inducted
last year,) and Dave Herme-
lin ... Bob Steinberg and
Myron Milgrom will serve as
dinner chairmen ... Local
sportscaster Al Ackerman,
secretary of MJSHF, will
again be master of cere-
monies.
Orders for $60 tickets are
being taken ... Call Jim

AFTER 12 YEARS
WORKING for the Neder-
landers in various capacities,
Shirt Harris is now public re-
lations gal for their three
show biz properties here ...
Birmingham Theatre,
Masonic Temple Theatre and
Fisher Theater ... More re-

cently, she had been PR gal
supreme for just their Bir-
mingham Theatre.
RUBIN HALPERIN was
given five-year award as an
attorney at recent Michigan
Bar Convention in Cobo Hall.

NO MORE MARLOWE'S
next to former Vineyard's
now Norm's Oyster Bar &
Grille ... Gravity is new
name ... and it'll be a nitery
now ... with live entertain-
ment instead of records ...
Intrigue is group opening
Oct. 10.
BOB RUSSMAN, in town
visiting from Palm Harbor,
Fla., tells of ex-Detroiter
guys and gals getting to-
gether for social bits in
Tampa Bay area ... He's sort

and Sarah Kleinmetz, Morrie
and Sandy Kent, Joel and
Mandy Fisher, Jack and De-
bbie Vernick, Toby and Ber-
nice Naster, Leonard and

RIKKI'S AMERICAN
GRILLE, scheduled to open
end of this month, in Ameri-
can Center on Franklin Road,
will be more of a sophisti-
cated place with music for
dancing of '50s, '60s and '70s
... Dining room will seat 200
... plus private banquet
rooms for up to 175 ... Folks
are already making bookings
there for affairs ... (Owners
also have Panache in Bir-
mingham.).
BEN "BENITO" ROTH,
here visiting sister Frieda
and husband Jack Drapkin,
and brother optometrist doc
Morton Roth, left Detroit 24
years ago and founded the
little Jewish community in
Majorca off coast of Spain ...
It had only 60 Jewish people.
Daughter Francisca, who is
now a sophomore at Michigan
State U., was named at Tem-
ple Israel here ... Rabbi
Leon Fram said he was going
to Belgium for the World
Jewish Congress and wanted
to stop for a few days in
Majorca.
Knowing he was coming,
Ben received permission from
the government to have serv-
ices in July 1966.
Rabbi Fram conducted
Majorca's first public Jewish
service in 500 years.
Today, services are held
regularly ... and no permis-
sion is needed.
There are now 150 in
Majorca's Jewish community
... with services held in the
Hotel Santa Ana.
Too bad not even a plaque •
or synagogue has been put up
in Rabbi Fram's honor.
Ben started with the
Majorca Daily Bulletin at it's
beginning 24 years ago ...
writing a daily column,
"Who's News" by Benito.
