Russians Eying Maccabi Gaines
By Jesse and Roy Silver
It's beginning to look as if the
Russians are serious about par-
ticipating in some manner in the
Seventh World Maccabiah Games
slated for Israel during the sum-
mer of 1965.
The Israeli daily sports news-
paper, Chadshot Hasport, reports
that a third secretary of the
Soviet embassy in Israel recently
visited the Maccabi World Union
headquarters in Tel Aviv and re-
quested information about the
Games. This was a follow-up to
an invitation extended last year
that Russian athletes participate.
The Soviet secretary was told
by Dr. Robert Atlasz of the MWU
that while only Jewish athletes
compete in the Maccabiah Games,
other nations have sent outstand-
ing athletes to stage exhibitions
during the opening and closing
Among the Russian names that
came up during the Soviet secre-
tary's visit were Moscow's Dyna-
mo soccer team, weightlifter Leo-
nid Zhabotinsky and track stars
Deny Having Made
Attacks on Jews
Three Chilean presidential can-
didates have denied anti-Israel and
anti-Jewish statements attributed
to them in an Arab monthly, "Na-
cion Arabe," published in Buenos
Aires. The January-February,
1964, issue of the Arab monthly,
virulently anti-Israel, anti-Jewish
and anti-Zionist, published alleged
interviews with three candidates
for the Chilean presidency: Sena-
tor Salvador Allende, of the
Frente Popular (Popular Front),
Jorge Prat, of the Partido Accion
Nacional (National Action Party),
and Senator Eduardo Frei, of the
Partido Democrata Cristiano
(Christian Democratic Party). All
three statements contained refer-
ences offensive to Jews, to Zion-
ists and to Israel.
World Jewish Congress officials
in Buenos Aires, together with
leaders of the DAIA (Delegacion
de Asociaciones Israelitas Argen-
tinas), the Argentinian representa-
tive Jewish body and affiliated
with the World Jewish Congress,
subsequently learned that none
of the alleged statements had ever
been made. This fact, as well as
details of the denials, were given
by the DAIA and the World Jew-
ish Congress to the Argentinian
Foreign Minister, Zavala Ortiz.
The three interviews included
a variety of pro-Arab propaganda
statements in line with the gen-
