Sunday School Pic-
nic Huge Success
The Talmud Torah and
Sunday school picnic of the
Beth David was held last Sun-
day at Hollywood and was at-
tended by more than three
hundred children and about a
hundred and fifty adults.
All met in front of the new
Talmud Torah Building, the
children being taken in pri-
vate cars, two trucks, donated
by the Royal Palm Ice Co. and
the Sanitary Mattress Co. al-
so furnishing a truck. The
party traveled by way of the
Dixie Highway to the ball
field at Madison and 16th Sts.
Hollywood where the athletic
contests were held. After the
contests were concluded the
ball game between the stu-
dents and the faculty was
played resulting in a complete
iout of the faculty to the'
score of 3 to 0. The score is
remarkable in view of the
fact that on the faculty team
such outstanding athletes as
"Goldie Goldstein of Univer-
sity of Florida Fame, Stanley
C. Myers, Harold Berke, I.
Hochstein were playing.
When these athletes stepped
into the batter's box it ap-
peared that tbeir bats werV
full of holes through which
the ball passed.
After the ball game the
party went to the Hollywood
Country Club, where use of
the pools and] lockers were
presented to the children and
adults absolutely free of
charge. Swimming contests
were held and then a fat wo-
man's race and a fat men's
race were held.
Milk was distributed to the
guests absolutely free of
charge, due to the generosity
of the Farway Dairy which
also furnished buttermilk as
well. The Beth David Sister-
hood provided ice cream and
cake for all the children. At
5:30 p. m. the guests return-
ed to the City.
Representing the Sunday
School on the arrangements
committee in charge of the
athletic events were Stanley
C. Myers and Herbert E.
Scherr. Actively aiding were
Mrs. Chas. Markowitz, Har-
old Berke, Chuck Cromer, and
Nathan Adelman.

hood to Hold Party

vid will hold a card party for

rah, next Tuesday evening at

hostesses for the evening will
be Mrs. I. Buckstein and Mrs.
J. Louis Shochet.

The fourth annual banquet
of the Junior Council of Jew-
ish Women which marked the
formal installation of the new-
ly elected officers was held

smaller models of which were
at each guest's plate. The
smaller aeroplanes were at-
tached by streamers to the
larger model. Place cards and
