The regular game and a special novice game made up 13 tables of bridge which provided enjoyment, challenging bridge and camaraderie from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. for the 8 legally blind players as well as the others. One of the players who is legally blind, Elias Bernard Johnson, will celebrate his 93rd birthday in August. Bom in Trinidad, Mr. Johnson later moved to New York City and Daytona Beach, Fla. He arrived in Charlotte in 1933 and was employed by Mrs. James W. Cannon for 14 years, after which he was engaged in the area of sales. He and his wife, Clyde, love Charlotte. Mr. John son said, “I came to Charlotte to spend one week, and stayed. I’m very happy here.” He has been playing bridge for 43 years and loves it. The gift of the braille cards means a great deal to Mr. Johnson and so many others. The person responsible for the bridge games at the JCC is Abe Bober. Mr. Johnson and the other players all thank Abe. The games have been an on-going activity at the JCC for the past 3 to 4 years. The program was begun by the late Irving Richek. A^r Irving’s death Abe Bober* took over and began the practice of the double session charity games and included the par ticipation of the blind. Abe Bober is indeed a very caring and dedicated individual. NETWORKING: “Holocaust,” the superb 9V2-hour NBC mini-series about the systematic murder of millions of Jews and other “enemies” by Nazi Germany, has been scheduled for a rerun across four straight nights starting Monday, Sept. 10. As exciting as our camping trip to Old Salem sounded on paper, in reality in exceeded our expectations. Weeks of prepara tion before the May 21-22 trip, including staff meetings and in- class activities, laid the foun dations. Tents and equipment had to be gathered, schedules prepared and responsibilities for each child and adult assign ed. A bus was chartered to take us to our campsite at Tanglewood Park, near Clem mons. The great day of departure dawned. It had been raining all night. Also, one of our teachers, an experienced camper who had been involved in all the plan ning, was sick and was unable to go with us. We weighed the alternatives — and weather reports — and decided not to dis appoint the children or the adults. We went. The decision proved to be cor rect. The rain did not follow us that first day and it only drizzled slightly on the second day, after we had cooked a breakfast of french toast, and folded our tents. There were two tours at Old Salem, each two hours, one for the older and the other for the younger children; tour guides were excellent. Even our kindergarteners were interested for the length of the tour. The second day of the trip we visited the deer park at Tanglewood, then went into Winston to the Reynolds Estate to tour the magnificent greenhouses and gardens. While there we also made a stop at the Museum of Man directed by Wake Forest University. An exciting young woman spoke to all the Academy children about Indian artifacts, passing tools among the children to handle and inspect. It was a lively museum visit. Throughout the trip, there was a wonderful feeling of in terdependence among all the children and the adults. All the children worked together, help ing each other cook and set up tents and clean up. This provid ed security which everyone felt No one fussed about sleeping outside in tents without ^eir parents nearby. After all, their friends were sleeping with them. And there were adults — teams of parents and teachers — sit ting a few feet away around a campfire all night long. We achieved our goals for the trip, chief among them providing an opportunity for growth in independence, self- reliance and personal initiative. Further, we wanted to promote a sense of belonging to a group and responsibiUty to it. Coupled with these goals, we also sought to reinforce our social studies learning through the visit to Old Salem. We look forward to a similar but more extensive experience next year.
