We hope you are having a wonderful vacation,
With fun and parties and plenty of relaxation

Yiddish Yak – The kids sure had fun at Roberta Wyloge’s terrific sweet sixteen party.  Dancing, refreshments and mainly fun were a full blast. All of Roberta’s friends enjoyed the wonderful party. Best wishes on your 16th birthday.

Skating, sliding, falling into being a “man” was Alan Douglas who celebrated his Bar Mitzvah and birthday with a fabulous roller skating party.  Skating alongside of Alan was all his gang. They had a gliding good time.  Many more happy birthdays, Alan.

Celebrating the 4th of July with a  “cool” party given by Jack Sharpe were all the kids. A bar-be-cue and dancing came before the fireworks.  This was really celebrating.

Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Nathan are leaving July 12 to visit relatives in Kenosha, Waukegan and Chicago prior to their New York sailing August 6 on the USS United States. They will visit England, France, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Greece and will spend the High Holy days in Israel.  The Nathans will sail for home in October on the Ile de France.

The exciting town of San Francisco has made conquests of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Kwint. They spent four days in the Northern City while Dr. Joe attended the National Convention of the American Medical Association. Since they averaged on 5 hours sleep a night, it’s a cinch they did more than attend meetings.

Before returning home they stopped in Las Vegas for four days where they ran into the Harold Lashers, George Starrs and the Morrie Krauses—and didn ‘t catch up on any lost sleep.


Jack and Sarah Wyner left last Friday for a two-week motor trip up the coast. Tnhey hnope to cover territory all the way up to Canada. … The Mack Estersons have returned from a few days at Arrowhead Springs. It must be a busy place –as Ruth and Mack left, the Dr. John Bloomenthals were arriving … Mike Soule left last week with friends for a two week motor trip to Guadalajara and Mexico City … Belle Demsey had as one day guests her brother and sister-in-law of Cleveland.
Mrs Al Neumann has as her house guest her niece, Marilyn Fladel of Brooklyn, N.Y.  Miss Fladel will spend about three weeks on the coast.
Joyce and Daniel Cohen and small son, Eric, of Inglewood were in San Diego last week visiting grandfather and great-grandfather, Samuel Tokman and Mrs. Tokman, before enplaning for Chicago, a University of Illinois reunion, and a summer of supervising children’s camps in Michiana, Mich.
There is always room for one more with Lillian Miller. She left Wednesday, via Super Chief, for a month vacation in the East with her four children and Myrna Wosk. The children will receive plenty of attention from both their paternal and maternal grandparents when they arrive in Boston. They plan to stay with Mrs. Miller’s parents, Dr. and Mrs. Louis Victor.  Myrna Wosk will visit relatives in New York. We wonder how Dr. David Miller will stand the quiet in his home.
