Zim Lines Starts
Israel-S. America
Passenger Service

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW

(Copyright, 1963, JTA, Inc.)

NEW YORK (JTA)—The in-
auguration by the Zim Lines of
a new passenger service between
Israel and other Mediterranean
countries and Brazil, Uruguay
and Argentina was announced by
the American-Israeli Shipping
Co., Inc., U.S. representatives of
Zim.
The service calls for four
round trip voyages during the
fall, winter and spring of 1963-
64 by the S/S Theodor Herzl.
The liner will sail from Haifa
and will call enroute at Piraeus,
Naples, Lisbon, Canary Islands,
Rio de Janeiro, Santos, Montevi-
deo and Buenos Aires. The one-
way voyage will occupy 22 days.
The ship's return voyages will be
via the same ports, but will omit
Monte-:ideo on the first and
third trips and will omit Piraeus
on all return trips.

it here from Tony and Lu-

cation of a lifetime!

One of the most remarkable
manifestations in baseball in
many years has been the emerg-
ence of the New York Mets as
a popular attraction. The Mets
have proved that the New York
Giants made a mistake in mov-
ing out of the city. Imagine, if
you will, how excited New York-
ers would have been about Willie
Mays and Company, if they man-
aged to work up enthusiasm
over Mary Throneberry and
other inept ball players!
Still, this is how the ball
rolled, and we have to accept
the Mets. A fan who attends the
Polo Grounds (and soon it will
be a new park in Flushing, Shea
Stiadium) cannot but be im-
pressed with the intensity of the
Met fan, called by sportswriters
The New Breed. The fans are
pleased with a close game; they
will pass up a victory. And if
the Mets win, well, the fans go
mad.
I call these factors to mind
because I remember that the
New York National League
team, in the days before the
Stonehams left town, also had
its intense fans. Many of them,
less "assimilated" than today's
followers, used to scan the
performances of their heroes
on the basis of religion. There
were the Irish players and
Italian players and, yes, Jewish
players. And the young Jewish
lads of my early youth, used
to come to the Polo Grounds
to see Andy Cohen and Phil
Weintraub and Harry Danning,
and, later, Sid Gordon.
In the same fashion, other
fans found their way into Yan-
kee Stadium to watch Tony Laz-
zeri and, later, Joe DiMaggio
and Phil Rizzuto. Although it
may be a peculiar way to follow
the fortunes of athletes, it did
happen. And it may still be hap-
pening that way, although
less so.
Surely, the present-day Mets
do not "cater" to this special
appeal. Today, the game of base-
ball is open to all. I remember

that when Jackie Robinson first
came up with the Brooklyn
Dodgers, thousands of Negro
fans shifted their allegiance to
the Dodgers. The emergence of
the Negro in major league base-
ball just about killed the Negro
leagues. Obviously, racial pride
was an element in this change.
It was a lot more satisfying for
Negro fans to see Robinson and
Satchel Paige perform in the big
leagues than in leagues which
had no meaning to the larger
sporting public.
Today's Mets have Norm
Sherry, but who goes out to
see the Jewish players in par-
ticular? Or, for that matter,
with so many great Negro stars
in the game, who goes espe-
cially to see a "Negro" player
as against a "white" player?
Things have changed, and who
is to say that they haven't
changed for the better?
Curiously, the New York Yan-
kees never worked on the as-
sumption of obtaining Jewish,
Negro or Irish players to attract
larger gates. The fact is, the
Yankees seldom have had Jewish
players and, considering the bril-
liant array of Negro stars in the
game, the Yanks have had very
few of them.
There will come a day—and
it is getting closer and closer—
when a ball player will be ap-
plauded only for what he does
on the field, and booed for his
inadequacies. Religion and race
will mean less and less. This, of
course, will be a reflection of
changing American mores. Sports
usually reflect the American
society and this development in
baseball is to be expected.
