is, 'Young at Heart? How
could it be anything else but
`Young at Heart'?" he said.
When he heard the film had
indeed won, he immediately
leaned across several seats to
hug his daughter. Malle ad-

he was reaching because

Shwayder, who had many
relatives from throughout the
country come to Hollywood
for the award ceremony,
recalled that her daughter
was invited to one of the lux-
urious parties after the event.
"It was $1,000 apiece to get
in," Shwayder said. "But my
daughter didn't stay long
because it was boring."
Before "Young at Heart"
was shown at the luncheon,
members of the Home for Ag-
ed auxiliary got down to
business. More than 270 — in-
cluding residents from the
home and a full table of
members of the National
Council of Jewish Women —
attended the event.
Daniel Clark, president of
the Home, delivered saluta-
tions, after which Iris Mickel,
director of community ser-
vices, offered a brief tribute to
the volunteers who comprise
the auxiliary.
Describing a leader as one
who motivates others and is
never satisfied with simply
doing what is adequate,
Mickel praised the leadership
of the auxiliary, which she
called "the backbone of ser-
vice to the home."
Diane Scholnick, im-
mediate past president of the
auxiliary executive commit-
tee, charted some of the goals
accomplished this past year
by the auxiliary, including
the 300 mezuzot placed in
Borman Hall and Prentis
Manor and the midrasha and
music programs at the JHA.
The auxiliary, she said,
helps the Home provide ser-
vices which foster hope, digni-
ty, warmth, acceptance and

"what all good presidents
need" — to the incoming of-

the 1988-1989 auxiliary ex-

Flesichman, Geraldine
Margolis, Cynthia Steinberg
and Marcia Tanzman, who
will serve on the presidium,
and Bea Breiner, named ex-
ecutive vice president.
Following the installation,
the lights were turned off and
"Young at Heart" began play-
ing on a huge screen.
One of the film's greatest
fans is Shwayder herself, who

said, "I just love seeing it."
For Gothelf, who already
has watched the documentary
countless times, enthusiasm
comes a little less easily.
"There are so many other
good things to see other than
`Young at Heart,' " he said.
Shwayder, frowning, glared
at him. "Well if there are, we
certainly don't know about

A Letter of Intent commit-
tee meeting Wednesday at the
Radisson Plaza Hotel in
Southfield will launch a new
community effort by the
Federated Endowment Fund
of the JewishWelfare Federa-

Under the chairmanship of
Lester S. Burton, the commit-

sign a letter indicating their
intention to establish a per-
manent fund with the
Federated Endowment Fund.

Gershenson are vice
According to Burton, the
Letter of Intent effort is
crucial to the future of the
community. He noted that the
community must plan now for
the needs of tomorrow and
that permanent funds are the
key to meeting those needs.
He said during the coming
months the committee hopes
to add 100 new names to the
Letter of Intent roster.

Bermans Host
R.I. Candidate

Lt. Gov. Richard Licht, the

organizations, including the
Jewish Federation of Rhode

Jewish Home for the Aged of
Rhode Island.
His Republican opponent,
incumbent John Chafee, has
voted on many occasions for
the sale of sophisticated
weapons to Saudi Arabia.

reception, call Bill Berman,
