Cohen Has Heart, But
Not Enough Chin
Sports Writer Says

,

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW

(Copyright, 1960, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)

As every sports fan knows,
there are very few Jewish boxers
still around, although Alphonse
Halimi returned to the wars with
great success some months ago.
But one of the pretty good
ones was young Ronnie Cohen,
a hard-hitting welterweight who
seemed to have the punch to carry
him far. But Cohen revealed a
rather weak chin when he got in
against good opposition.
Early in November, Cohen met
one Eddie Jordan, and while the
fight was an exciting one, it
ended with Cohen on the floor for
the third' time in the second
round.

Kasavubu. Cuts
Ties with Nasser

LONDON, (JTA) — President
Joseph Kasavubu, of the Repub-
lic of Congo, broke off diplo-
matic relations with the United
Arab Republic, and ordered the
"immediate" departure of the
UAR Ambassador and his entire
staff from the Congo, according
to official reports received here.
President Kasavubu accused
the Cairo ambassador of "plot-
ting to overthrow the estab-
lished authority" of the Repub-
lic, and of encouraging "rebel
elements" in the country.
(A first group of 25 high-
ranking Congolese officials will
take_part in a four-month public
administration course organized
in Israel for African officials
under United Nations auspices,
it was announced in Jerusalem.
The course was developed by
the Israel Productivity InStitute
and the Foreign Ministry.)
