BY MILTON FRIEDMAN
(Copyright, 1961. Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)
WASHINGTON — The United
States Senate has just reviewed
the study of Hebrew in America.
Jewish progress was cited as proof
of what could be done to revive
study here of the Greek language
and the classical Greek tradition.
Noting that Harvard Univer-
sity is establishing in Washington
a world center for Hellenic stud-
ies, Senator Everett Dirksen, of
Illinois, addressed the Senate on
the desire of American Greek
groups to keep alive the ancient
tongue of their ancestors. Senator
Dirksen quoted from an article in
the "Orthodox Observer," an of-
ficial publication of the Greek
Archdiocese. Written by Prof.
Morton Smith of Columbia Uni-
versity, it was entitled: "Hebrew
—Why Not Greek?"
Professor Smith pointed out
that 100 years ago „every Amer-
ican college or high school which
had any academic pretensions of-
fered at least one course in
Greek. But today in New
City, for instance, only
- lie high school off

The Senate w
hind this cult
was the work o
voted JOvers of th
lan-
guage, who set to wo
ve it
as a part of Amer
national
heritage. With this
they or-
ganized the Heb
Culture
Council to study the
blem and
systematically direct the cam-
paign.
Hebrew in the public school
curriculum had a wonderful ef-
fect on the morale of Jewish
youth, according to Professor
Smith. Senators noted from the
Smith report that Jewish children
were made to feel that their her-
itage was recognized by their
country. Tension between loyalty
to their homes and identification
with the "non-Jewish world" was
diminished.
The Senate was asked: "If all
this could be done for Hebrew—
as it was:—why cannot something
similar be done for Greek?"

German State Denies
Paving Way for Return

KIEL, Germany, (JTA)—Prime
Minister K. U. von Hassel, of
the State of Schleswig-Holstein,
defended his government in the
Schleswig-Holstein Parliament
here against accusations of neo-
Nazism.
He rejected- charges voiced by
Social Democratic deputies who
accused his government of "free-
ing the way for return of im-
portant Nazis to high positions
in the government administration
and judiciary."

Former U.S. Senator Herbert
H. Lehman (left) was honored
last week by the Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary of America in
recognition of his 15 years of
service as chairman of that in-
stitur oard of Overseers.

think Schayes can last much
longer.
Carl Braun, the present coach
of the Knicks, praises Schayes
along different lines. "What
sticks in my mind about him is
that every night he puts on his
sneakers he plays to the best of
his ability — whether it's for
18,000 here at the Garden or
800 in Syracuse, he knows only
one way."
Schayes himself is known to
be a mild player, a modest man.
Yet he told Shecter something
surprising.
"It may sound immodest,"
Schayes confided, "but I'd like
to be thought of as the greatest
ballplayer who ever lived."
