Lipman Pike Was
Baseball Star;
Still Is Obscure

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW

To Wed Aug. 13

al

(Copyright, 1960, Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Inc.

Lipman Pike, who played
for a number of major league
teams in the National Associa-
tion and National League, was
born on May 25, 1845 in New
York and died 48 years later
in 1893.
He began his career in organ-
ized ball in 1871 with Troy in
the National Association, play-
ing as a first baseman, second
baseman and outfielder.
He later performed with St.
Louis in the National League
and Cincinnati in the NL, where
he was the manager and also
held down positions practically
everywhere.
Here he played at every in-
field position and in the out-
field as well. And he was a .300
hitter. He was on the roster
of Providence, Worcester and
the Metropolitans through the
rest of his career, which ended
in 1887.
In 1872 he served as non-play-
ing manager with the Olympics
in the National Association. If
you read some of these dates
carefully, you will notice that
Pike played into his 40's and
died only six years after he
gave up the game. He began
in his late twenties, so he was
a ball player most of his life.
For some reason or other, he
is completely obscure in base-
ball history and certainly in
Jewish baseball annals.

Child Welfare Group
Sets Seminars in Israel

LISBON, (JTA) — The Gen-
eral Council of the Inter-
national Union for Child Wel-
fare, which concluded its ses-
sion here, voted to hold in
Israel a seminar for educators
and social workers for African
and Asian countries in the
spring of 1961.
One seminar program will in-
volve a month of studies on
child welfare programs and
two months of practical work
in Youth Aliyah institutions.
The decision to hold the
seminar in Israel was opposed
only by the Lebanese delega-
tion.
Israel was elected to the
executive board of the organiza-
tion, a decision which led the
Lebanese delegate to declare
that his country would have to
reconsider its relationship to
the International Union.
Moshe Kol, world chairman
for Youth Aliyah, represented
Israel and the organization at
the conference. The achieve-
ments of Youth Aliyah proved
to be of great interest to other
delegations.

Italian Premier Strikes
Race Item from Census

ROME, (JTA) — The Office
of the Premier informed the
Union of Italian Jewish Com-
munities that it had distributed
a circular to all local census of-
fices in Italy reminding the cen-
sus officials that a 1944 law
bans all references of a racial
nature from census documents.
The Premier's Office took the
action after a request by the
Union. A similar circular will
be issued soon by the Italian
Ministry of Justice to all local
offices.
Both actions stemmed from a
formal protest by the Union,
which had criticized the fact
that many local administrative
offices in Italy were still using
forms printed in fascist times
which inquired about the race
of applicants.

Jazz in Jerusalem

A 15 piece jazz band has been
giving "jam sessions" in Jerus-
alem.
Although jazz clubs have al-
ready been going strong for
some four years in Tel Aviv and
in Haifa, this is the first time
such a group has been organ-
ized in the Israeli capital. Play-
ing every month or so at the
Jerusalem Artists House, the
club invites a select audience to
form the proper intimate cafe
atmosphere.
The music is recorded by the
Israel Broadcasting Service for
later broadcast. Jazz has already
captured a wide audience here.
Some of the players are Sabras,
and there is increasing enthusi-
asm for this sort of music.
The saxaphonist is Mel Kel-
ler, an American, who came to
Israel in 1951 and has been
clarinetist in the Radio Sym-
phony Orchestra since 1952. Re-
cently, he organized the Jerus-
alem Jazz Quartet which per-
forms regularly on the Israel
Radio.
The bass player is Igo Stern
whose main job is playing the
violin and bass violin at the
King David Hotel. He was ex-
pelled from Egypt after the
Sinai Campaign and settled with
his family in Jerusalem. Anoth-
er saxaphonist is Albert Piam-
ento, a talented young Sabra.

Hebrew University Fund
Is Established for Child
Psychiatric Research

NEW YORK, (JTA)—A $60,-
000 gift will make possible a
research program at the Hebrew
University - Hadassah Medical
School by which children learn
to understand their environ-
ment and to convey images and
feelings in drawings, paintings
and verbal expression.
Philip M. Klutznick, president
of the American Friends of the
Hebrew University said the
money from a Boston donor
will be used to set up the Hymie
Danishevsky Fund at the school
and that proceeds of the fund
will be used for clinical re-
search of the mind-body rela-
tionship processes of children.
Information from such stud-
ies reportedly has significant
implications for knowledge of
human physical and mental de-
velopment as well as in pro
viding insights for psychiatric
treatment.
Dr. Felix Deutsch, a psychi-
atrist, will participate in an ad-
visory capacity. Dr. Deutsch
organized a similar study sev-
eral years ago at the Boston
Children's Hospital for which
he continues to serve as con-
sultant. The project in Israel
will be closely coordinated with
the one in Boston.
