Due to leave soon for the B’nai B’rith Convention are: Ralph Feldman, Mickey Freedman, Joe Kaplan, Jerry Aronoff, Ed Breitbard, Henry Weinberger, and Morrie Krause.  Mr. Eugene Morgan of the El Cortez Hotel recently donated a trophy case to the lodge.

The Young Jewish Couple (s) Club will hold their third annual beach picnic on Saturday, July 31, at 8:30 p.m. The location will be Pacific Beach on the shore at the foot of Garnett Street. Guests will be toasting their own suppers so it is recommended that tuxedoes be left at home and the ladies are advised to don, for that one night at least, their husband’s trousers. There will be singing, the telling of stories (tall and otherwise) and the immobile type of games that go with a full stomach and a warm camp fire.

Reservations, open to all, at $2.00 per couple, must be made by July 28. For further details, contact Annabelle Epstein, JU-2-8019 or Florence Freidenthal, HU-8-0996.

Recently returned from Pacific Grove, California, are Stanley Breitbard and Stephen Goldfarb. Steve and Stan were in attendance at the AZA District Silver Anniversary Convention which took place from June 28 to July 2.  The boys represented the local AZA chapter which financed their trip up North.

Both boys are confident that what they learned at the Convention will play a great part, in putting San Diego AZA, which re-organized less than a year ago, solidly on its feet.

Stan, who is president of the chapter, and Steve, who is Secretary, invite any interested boy between the age of 14 and 21 to attend the next meeting which is to be held August 3 at Temple Beth Israel.
