    1960/1961 I went to work with/for Weider Enterprises. Place was 801 Palisades Ave, Union City, N.J.. Joe Weider, always engaged in every day activities building his company - always had a hello for myself as I was involved with the preparing Postal mailings he was sending out..There were two other postal persons I worked with. J W - was a very good employer. I always remembered Joe and was thankful to him for his added employment of myself at that time. Later in the 60's Arnold was at the Weider addresses in Union City, NJ...
