THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

MILT
APTEKAR
WRITES ... "They care:
These days we hear and read so
much about how people do not
want to get involved — they do
not care about their neighbors.
It is so refreshing to come
across individuals who are
concerned with others that I
feel they deserve recognition
from our community.
"Recently at the Jimmy Pre-
ntis Morris Branch of the
Jewish Community Center, I
found several people who un-
selfishly contribute an after-
noon each week of nostalgic,
musical pleasure to about 60
senior citizens, many bused in
for the afternoon program.
"Phyllis Bratt, Mamie Law-
son, Esther Crane, Mimi
Sommers and Bernard
Luchtan sang Yiddish, He-
brew, Russian and English
songs to the absolute delight of
these members of the Social
Club. From the looks on the
faces in the audience, the sin-
gers could have been Sophie
Tucker, Ethel Merman, Judy
Garland, Molly Picon and Al
Jolson, and they wouldn't have
been more appreciated. To
quote Reva Klaymer when
Phyllis Bratt was belting out
her version of 'The Lady is a
Scamp' (originally Rodgers
and Hart's The Lady is a
Tramp) — 'She's so lebedik!'
Overheard from one of the
men, 'When I know she is going
to sing for us, I don't need to
take my medicine!' Phyllis
Bratt believes in giving her lis-
teners warm, personal atten-
tion — her philosophy of reach-
ing out includes a pat on the
shoulder, a hug, a touch of the
hand.
"Miriam Zack did a beautiful
job of accompanying the group.
When a request came from the
audience, they took the song,
and from scratch, made a prod-
uction number out of it. Sol
Begel (flute), Izhok Prikupetz
(accordian), and Sid Mann
with his singing violin accom-
panied the singers.
"A special treat for the Social
Club was Sid's solo arrange-
ment of the 'Hungarian Czar-
das'. I'm sure many in the room
were reminded of the popular
Rubinoff and his violin.
"Much credit for the success
of the Wednesday afternoon
programs of the Social Club
must go to Bernard Luchtan
who helped to organize this
group 17 years ago, and who
has been actively promoting it
ever since. I'm told that Mr.
Luchtan was a cantor — cer-
tainly this explains his own
beautiful voice and his love for
the singing he has been re-
sponsible for these many years.
"Phyllis Bratt speaks for all
these wonderful volunteers
when she says of the Social
Club audience, 'They give me
much more than I can ever give
them.' ".
CONGRATS ... to Kay
Bostick . . . of the Federation's
Hectman Apartments . . . on
her birthday.
CONGRATS ... to
Madelyne and Alvin Friedman

. . . on their 25th anniversary
. . . Surprise party at Excalibur
was by daughters Amy, Lisa
and Betsy.

SOME WISHES FOR 1987
. . .

That David Hermelin
doesn't lose his voice . . . Also
that he and wife Doreen keep
on giving those great parties
for wonderful causes.
That Rube Weiss, George
Young, our brother Marvin,
Percy Kaplan and Max Sosin
wake up one morning and find
themselves with full sets of
hair on their balded pates.
That organizations stop giv-
ing such wonderful affairs on
the same nights.
That Phyllis Tyner finally
gets that hole-in-one she's al-
ways yearned for.
That the State of Michigan
steps in and, starts exercising
control over its kosher legisla-
tion.
That Diane "Your Truly"
Hofsess stays as sweet as she is
. . . never ever following in the
footsteps of some gossip col-
umnists . . . Also that readers
realize that her writings mean
having and not having a job.
That Jimmy Launce, Jay
Roberts, Tom Ryan, Warren
Pierce and Dick Purtan keep
getting better as they seem to
be doing.
That our "love affair" with
all the girls at The Jewish =,
News never stops.
That Linda Solomon's hair
continues to remain long.
That Bob Talbert finds the
diet of happiness . . . good food
without gaining weight.
That Allan "The Singing
Window Washer" gets the
break he's looking for . . . and
we don't mean somebody's
window.
That we can see what Chuck
Muer would look like in a long
tie instead of a bowtie.
That somebody invents a
gadget for Barry Solomon
(Linda's hubby) to always keep
a hamburger "slider" in his
pocket.
PERCY
KAPLAN
WRITES . . . about a man
being seen walking along car-
rying a sign with nothing on it.
"What are you picketing
against?" asked a passerby.
"Nothing," was the reply. "I'm
looking for a sponsor."' . . . and
the customer who sat down in
the restaurant and said, "I'll
have a corned beef sandwich,
and make it lean." "Yes, sir,"
said the waiter. "Which way?"
