The gay times they have in Deal must arouse the envy of all those who are not able to join the brilliant crowd there. Only recently they had a scavenger hunt that was a decided success. They hunted for the most amazing and unusual things: A goldfish; a bowstring from H. King’s first violin at Ross Fenton Farms; a white horse’s hair; a towel from each of three pools, the pools designated being the ones of the Colony Club, the Deal Casino, and the West End Casino; ski balls from Asbury Park boardwalk; huckleberry branches; and finally an autographed copy of the Prisoner’s Song from Sunny Watkin’s orchestra at Club S. S. Royale at Point Pleasant. No wonder everybody had simply a glorious time. The young people attending the hunt were: Dr. Richard Gluck, Riva Zenta, Jack Salz, Sarah Louise Cohen, Daniel Brenner, William Goldman, Anita Finn, Ted Taussig, Ruth Lieberman, Herb Mandell and Vivian Hoffman.

Not less successful and original was a Masquerade held at the Colony Surf Club on August 17. At least fifty beautiful costumed guests attended. The first prize was awarded to Miss Janice Lifson, whose costume consisted of a moving tomb stone, cleverly placed on rollers, which stone Miss Lifson propelled from the enclosed inside. The other guests had chosen more conventional but very becoming disguises. Prominent among them were Mr. and Mrs. Harry Romm, Mr. David Rosenheim, Miss Ruth Stark, Mr. Dave Menzel, Mr. and Mrs. I. Hofflin and Miss Vivian Hofflin, the much feted engaged couple Miss Pearl Jasey and Mr. Ira Walsey, and Mr. Joseph Sudy.

When we leave the gay shore crowd and turn back to events in our city we note first of all the marriage of a most interesting couple, both of them scientists who may one day achieve a fame equal to that of the Curies. The bride is Dr. Ella Fishberg, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Maurice Fishberg of New York, the groom Dr. Isaac Newton Kugelmass also of New York. They were married in the chapel of the Municipal Building by Philip A. Hines, First Deputy City Clerk. After a wedding trip to Virginia, they will live in New York.

Dr. Kugelmass is an authority on hemophilia and pediatrics and is connected with the Fifth Avenue Hospital He holds degrees from City College, Columbia, John Hopkins, Paris, Goettingen, Leipzig, and Yale. His wife is a biochemist who has six degrees to her credit. Barnard, Columbia, Berlin, and the Sorbonne have awarded her diplomas.

Another medical marriage was the one of Miss Julia R. Harris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Harris of 898 West End avenue, to Dr. Louis Weinstein. The simple ceremony took place at the Hotel St Moritz. The bride dispensed with attendants, while Morris Weinstein acted as best man for his brother. Upon their return from a wedding trip Dr and Mrs. Weinstein will reside at 425 East Eighty-sixth street.
