Urge Baseball as Israel Sport

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW

THE DETROIT JEWIS

(Copyright, 1959, JTA, Inc.)

One of America's most influ-
ential magazines—and certainly
the best sports periodical in the
nation—recently carried an 11-
page report on sports in Israel.
Gerald Holland wrote the
article, after tray ei i n g all
over the country and meeting
with David Ben-Gurion, Gen.
Yaakov Dori of the Haifa Tech-
nion and other Israeli person-
alities. Holland was deeply im-
pressed with Israel and its
people and with the love for
sports which has developed
there. Of Irish descent, he had
recently been in Ireland, talked
continually of Ireland (or Eire)
and hurling, its national sport.
He visited Israel with Col. Har-
ry Henshel, notable New York
sports leader, and Chaim Glo-
vinsky, manager of the Israel
team that participated in the
1956 Olympics, and is now serv-
ing as liaison man between the
U.S. Committee for Sports in
Israel and the various sports
organizations.
Col. Henshel, wherever he

went, spoke up for baseball, but
the Israelis were doubtful of
its appeal in Israel. Soccer and
now basketball seem to have
the upper hand. In a talk with
Gen. Dori and Carl Alpert (who
used to edit the New Palestine
of the Zionist Organization of
America before he settled in
Israel), Col. Henshel came up
against some tough talking op-
position on b a s e b a l 1. The
Colonel wants to build a base-
ball field as the Technion, and
Alpert thinks he's wasting his
time—or at least this is how
Holland reports it.
Col. Henshel was shocked by
this attack but recovered to
point out that baseball is now
slow; that when you understand
it you realize something is hap-
pening every moment. But the
debate was inconclusive because
both men stood their ground,
which gave Holland an oppor-
tunity to make his plug for
hurling. After he explained the
game, everyone agreed it might
work out. General Dori more
or less spoke for all Israelis
when he remarked, "My feel-
ing is the more sports the bet-
ter. Bring them all to Israel.
Let's have a look at them. Base-
ball, hurling, American foot-
ball—let's try them out."

Protective Anonymity
Charge in Restrictions

Private employment agencies
in many parts of the country
have thrown a "protective cur-
tain" around discriminatory
employers and have become the
cat's-paw of job bias, the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith charged in a report on
fair employment practices made
public by Benjamin R. Epstein,
its national director.
As a result, the League de-
clared, discriminatory employ-
ers have been able to effect
their restrictive policies behind
the shield of anonymity, safe
from public exposure.
The League cited the use by
employment agencies of secret
symbols on their application
forms and other elaborate cod-
ing techniques to screen out job
applicants belonging to minor-
ity groups.

Jewish community of the
United States, the American
Jewish Congress reported.
The statement was contained
in the annual report of the or-

a quarterly meeting of the AJ
Congress national administra-

Leo Pfeffer, director of the
Commission and a national
authority on church-state law,
delivered the report.
In another action, the Con-
gress called on Gov. Nelson
Rockefeller to join a pending
court action against a ruling

dore Norman, general manager
of the Jewish Agricultural
Society, reported.
Dr. Norman estimates in his
annual report for 1958 that the
great majority of the Jewish
farmers have managed to stay
on their farms. Thousands of
them were seriously affected by
the changed conditions in the
poultry industry, especially in
the Northeast and in California.
Since opportunities for new
settlers have very much nar-
rowed, the work of the Jewish
Agricultural Society during last
year was largely with estab-

Urge U.S. to Take Lead •

in World Refugee Year •

NEW YORK (JTA)—A reso-
lution urging the United States
Government "to take the op-
portunity offered by the World
Refugee Year to change our
basic immigration laws," was
adopted at the three-day meet-
ing of the executive commit-
tee of the National Council of
Jewish Women.
The executive committee con-
gratulated President Eisenhow-
er on American cooperation in
World Refugee Year, which be-
gins July 1, but added that
"American willingness to ad-
mit a fair share of the world's
refugees, as well as American
support of resettlement else-
where, is essential to the reso-
lution of current refugee prob-
lems."
Scholarships for advanced
study in the United States in
1959-60 are being granted by
the Council to 15 welfare spe-
cialists and educators from
Israel and Morocco, it was
announced at the sessions. In
addition, the executive com-
mittee decided that the organi-
zation's programs throughout
the U.S. next fall will high-
light youth needs. The NCJW

Sections throughout the United
States.

traces the unique story of Jew-
ish farm pioneers, going back
over a century from the open-
ing of California during the
Gold Rush days of 1849, to re-
cent years, when hundreds of
DP's and war veterans were
settled on small poultry farms,
with the assistance of the
Society.
