THE TRANSCRIPT where no group is expendable, much thought is being given by experts to the happiness . and well-being of older people. One of the most brilliant spe- cialists in problems of the aged, Michael Sossin, 45 years old, last month chartered the unique Foundation for Geriatric Re- search, and to work out its prin- ciples of improving retirement conditions among elderly folk, has launched the landmark Blackstone Hotel, Miami Beach into a non-profit retirement hotel. As a residential hotel, the Blackstone now provides a home companionship, nutrition, medi- cal care and counselling to enrich seniors' lives. The 250-room Blackstone has long been a Mi- ami Beach showplace, and its Olympic pool is set amid beauti- ful gardens. The Foundation could have chosen no better site than Miami Beach for its experiment. Not only does its balmy, air and sun- shine contribute to the sense of well-being, but that resort pro- vides so much free entertain- ment, in concerts, star-studded shows with visiting celebrities, open-air dancing in which old- sters of both sexes "perform," not ',hop," thanks to Arthur Mur- ray and other famous dance stu- dios, that if physically capable, old people can have the time of their lives at very little expense. Social authorities this week have hailed tile non-profit Foun- dation as a revolutionary move to give the eldeTly, true psycho- THE FIRST OF ITS KIND The birth rate in the United States is zooming laily, but the increase in numbers of our elderly citizens, due to mod- ern science and some freedom from economic worries which they enjoy through old-age pensions an.d social security, is keeping pace with it. + At long last, in this country' logic and economic security in Herzl Men's Club To Install The Herzl Men's Club Installa- tion Dinner will take place on Tuesday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Herzl Vestry.

The- international good will angle of this big tournament and the fact that money realized on it will be shared by youth groups through UN in many parts of the world, is of keen interest to Mr Ben Gurion. Mr. Edward B. Law- son, U. S. Ambassador to Israel has promised in addition to do everything he can to promote the appearance here of the Israeli contingent. Plans are being made by Jew- ish groups, if their coming can be arranged, to have them appear in New York, Chicago, Philadel- phia, Detroit and Cleveland. After money for their transporta- tion expenses are deducted, re- maining proceeds would be turned over to the Federated Jewish Funds in the cities where they would appear. In this country the records show that Jewish fighters hold a proud place in the great sport and it would be fascinating to see what their Israeli cousins could do in a contest which would pit them against other youths from various parts of the globe.

The young ladies, wives of Young Men's Club members, have received weekly dancing instructions from Mrs. Theron Noble. The dances will include Hawaiian chants, modern hula, gourd dances, and the ancient ipu and bamboo dance. They will be accompanied by the Hawaiian exchange students' combo from the University of Washington.

Peha, and Sam Tarica, Mr. Harold Sherman and Orville ian luau, and a capacity crowd is expected. The "Hawaiian Revue" is the latest in many fund raising af- fairs for the building of the new Ezra Bessaroth Synagogue.
