Plain Talk rOt'NTRY CLUB BY AL SEGAL A few weeks ago 1 met my old and valued friend, Abe Zilch, In the city in which he has successfully lived many years. He iised to^iive in our town where we went to school together. We .spoke of this and that, and he mentioned that he had recently heen admitleil to membership in the Shamtlale Country Club, whose social fame had reached me even in the distant com¬ munity in which 1 live. He mentioned the matter in a casual way. Just as, a few minutes before, he had told me that his wife's arthritis had flared up again. He didn't seem to he any too happy about being a member of the Shamdaie Country Club. "Abe", 1 said, "1 suppose you i ¦ are entitled to congratulations ju^t arrived at the elevation of on this social achievement, Shamdaie Country Club! I've heard it's the bright goal of many a Jewish citizen of your town and you've made it!

He had mslde a fine success out of a humole beginning—not just in making money, but in all things that were righteous. and of good re¬ pute, he had had a flpe part In the community to which his family had moved. 1 remembered .his immigrant father who had come over here with five dollars.
