locally and throughout the State,
in order to promote the aims and
purposes of the Council on Aging
... These aims are focused on the
interest of problems and needs of
Florida’s older citizens . . .
The progress which the River
Garden Home has made under its
highly interested executive and its
director has been a beacon for this
entire region ... It is something
Os which the Jewish community
should be justly proud for it has
served up a measure of service
for the overall community . . .
At the installation of the offi
cers of the Ladies Aid, that organ
ization which pioneered for the
erection of a Jacksonville Jewish
home for the aged, Dorothy Katz
(Mrs. Harry) made mention of
those days when many community
workers in Jacksonville said of
the Home: “Why do we need
it? ... ”
The need has been proven many
times, and River Garden’s prog
ress has been the community’s
pride . . .
Incidentally, the Ladies Aid
closing luncheon Tuesday was
a lovely event, and I believe its
slate of officers was the first to
bear duo-yearly re-elections in
the past decade . . . After serving
for two years Gert Witten (Mrs.
Ike) has reassumed presidency,
and her core of dedicated workers
have gone in with her . . .

As this goes to press the Sidney Ent
| mans (of the River Garden Home for the
Aged) are in Atlantic City in convention
[ ... But as the Ladies Sheltering Aid
Society draws its year to a close I take
this opportunity of expressing my best
wishes to the Director of River Garden
and his lady . . . The felicitations are
two fold ...
First, Sidney was named as first presi
dent of the newly organized Florida
Council on Aging . . . This group was
activated to cooperate with existing
groups and to stimulate new groups
Other officers installed were:
Reba Segal (Mrs. Sam), Ann
Greenberg (Mrs. Sam), and Helen
Diamond (Mrs. Frank) as vice
presidents . . . Mrs. Lou Feigen
baum (Ruth) is infirmary treas
urer, and Mrs. Lou Witten (Rose)
is financial secretary . . . Ethel
Sandler (Mrs. Herbert) is execu
tive secretary, and Debby Aberle
Dreher (Mrs. Jack) is recording
.secretary .. Mrs. Samuel Lazarus,
corresponding; Mrs. Isadore Zas
low, treasurer, and Mrs. Sidney
Entman, adviser.
Special mention should be made
of the River Garden Hobby Shop
which won first place in the Jack
sonville Adult Hobby Show . . .
This project is under the direction
of Mrs. J. Mack, Mrs. Jessie Fein
gold . . .
And all this is the second reason
why the Director of River Garden
should receive felicitations . . .
I must add that the highlight of
the meeting was the closing re
marks made by Mrs. Joseph
Shapiro . . . Over eighty, and a
past president of the Ladies Aid,
she appeared on the program as a
resident of River Garden (which
she is) . . . The pertinence of her
remarks, made spontaneously
with perfect cognizance of the
theme of the afternoon, “the fruit
of your hand ...” was a source
of envy to many platform speak
ers .. .
*****
Congratulations are in order to
the Alvin Bobroffs of Gainesville,
Florida, who announce the birth
of a daughter on May 17th . . .
We had predicted the arrival of
Eileen, in a former article con
cerning the many activities of her
mother, Gertrude, and of her
Jacksonville grandparents the Al
bert Myerhoffs, who are the re
gion’s favorite caterers . . . There
fore, we are very happy that the
third little Bobroff is a girl . . .
Her Gainesville grandparents are
the Louis Bobroffs . . .

Child in Coma 8 Months , Recovers
at Famed National Jewish Hospital
After eight months in a coma, an eight-year-old girl is recovering at
National Jewish Hospital at Denver, from dreaded tuberculous menin
gitis, which, until a few years ago, was 100 per cent fatal.
Doctors at the famed free, non-sectarian medical center agreed the
case is one of the most dramatic in
their long experience. They said
the girl, identified only as “Dean
na,” has excellent prospects for a
marked recovery. The girl’s full
name and home town were with
held at the request of the parents.
“Deanna” was flown to the Hos
pital in April, 1954, in a semi-con
scious condition, her body and
mind ravaged, as it seemed, be
yond repair.
She slipped deep in a coma and
stayed there, unresponsive, for
eight long months. Nurse* and
doctors maintained a caasalase
vigil at har bedside. Although
medical treatment seemed to atop
the progression of the disease,
hopes for Deanna’s rscovery
ebbed as time went on with no no
ticeable improvement in her con
dition. By ell medical precedent
her case was just about hopeless.
Then, on* day early this year,
Deanna opensd one, then both of
her wide blue eyes. They focused
on the ceiling, her bed, and slowly
turned to the nurse nearby.
Ibday, Deanna laughs and talks,
attends school two hours a day In
the Hospital’s one-room school
house, and gives promise of be
coming a healthy, happy girl. Har
spectacular return from the not
quite-dead was aided by her own
will to live, plus a relentless battle
waged by doctors, nurses, physical,
occupational and play therapists,
using the latest medical tech
niques and equipment at the Hos
pital, including unlimited TLC
(tender loving care).
Rehabilitation is now a problem
and will continue to be so for a
long time. But doctors are confi
dent that Deanna has an excellent
chance of mending to the point
where she will be able to lead a
happy existence.
Deanna is one of nearly 50,000
patients who have received more
than 4,000,000 days of free care
during the Hospital’s 55 years of
operation. Patients are of all na

The Hospital Is supported antirely
by voluntary contributions.
First tubarculosis hospital in
the country to admit intents, Na
tional Jewish Hospital at Denver
has had a leading rote in the fiffst
against tuberculous meningitis, as
well as pulmonary tuberculosis.
The Hospital has hslped to
change the childhood tuberculosis
picture dramatically in the test tew
years, according to Dr. Sidney SL
Dressier, medical diractor.
“No longer is tuberculous man*
ingitis 100 per cent tetal to its tiny
sufferers,” Dr. Drasster recently
said. “As for pulmonary tubsreu
losis, also a kilter, complete con
trol is now possibte. These much
desired achievements which ghro
children a chance at lift have been
the result of the ceaseless studies
by our research scientists and staff
physicians.”
Dr. Dressier added that “until
the day whan immunization
against tuberculosis is a reality, aa
it will be eventually, we must not
relax our efforts in behalf of those
who can be helped. There is al
ways a bed or crib waiting, because
we will always make room for one
more infant or child who needs
tiie services of our Hospital.”
