Room for Efsher and Avadeh

The parking lot at the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory here is slowly beginning to look like a metallic textbook in misspelled Yiddish. California’s six-letter-limit personalized license plates are doing it. So far, Jewish employes at NCEL are sporting “Hutzpa” and “L’Kaim” on their vehicles. Two more employes at the laboratory have announced plans to add “Nudnik” and “Schlep” to NCEL’s rolling Jewish dictionary.
