The Truth Will Out

A MARRIAGE broker
had taken a young man on
a visit to a prospect. As
they left the house the
broker said triumphantly,
"Didn't I tell you what a
wonderful family' they
were, and how rich? Did
you notice the quality of
the silverware on the ta-
ble? Pure sterling!"
"Y-e-s," grudgingly con-
ceded the young man. "But
don't you think it's possi-
ble that in order to make a
good impression on me
they borrowed the silver-
ware?"
"Ach, what nonsense!"
cried the broker with
exasperation. "Who'd lend
any silverware to those
thieves?"

Speak Up

"YOU faker, you swin-
dler!" hissed the prospec-
tive bridegroom, taking the
shadchan aside. "Why did
you ever get me into this?
The girl's old, she's
homely, she lisps, she
squints—"
"You don't have to
whisper," interrupted the
shadchan, "she's deaf, too!"

Only Sometimes

THE boy and girl went
for a stroll. The boy said to
his shadchan when next
they met, "But she limps!"
"Only when she walks,"
agreed the shadchan.
Such is the enlightening
shadhan story which has
merited a chapter in Jewish
historical records. The related.
facts are fragmentary, yet
those compiled as an impor-
tant addendum to the "Sing-
les" in action will surely be
accepted as needfully inform-
ative. The shadhan is intro-
duced here as an entertaining
character in a Jewish folk
drama. It is as such that he
may make another lasting
appearance on the stage of
Jewish experience.

A Very Sad Ending:

Nathan Ausubel, the very
dear friend and brilliant
author.
