WE WOULD LIKE to take the
liberty of quoting of an interest-
ing letter we received last month
from Blanche Siegel, following her
trip to Israel with hubby, Dan
Siegel.
"I was very interested in one of
your readers' description of Israel
as a 'jewel.' My husband and I
have just recently returned from
a second visit to Israel. I can only
repeat what I have said many
times—that one may read about
Israel, see movies or listen to
talks concerning Israel, but never
can one experience the real emo-
tional heart beat of this fabulous
country until you are actually
there to see with your own eyes.
What makes it so fabulous? The
people—who have come to live
there or who were born there, who
walk and live with such confidence
and pride.
"We had the unforgettable ex-
perience of witnessing Independ-
ence day. There are not adequate
words to describe the thrill of this
memorable event. The parade ac-
tually took about one hour and
showed about two per cent of the
military strength.
"One funny incident among
many that happened. We were
having dinner in our hotel in Jer-
usalem and our young man waiter
was efficient but had many tables
to wait on. He was from Morocco
and spoke English fairly well. My
husband ordered fish and said, 'If
you get a chance, bring some
horse radish.' He soon returned
and said, 'Here is the horse radish,
but what is this, "If you get a
chance?' "

By Jessie Silver and Roy Silver
Twenty-two-year-old Jim Breg-
man of Arlington, Va., a student
at a Jesuit university in Japan, is
yet another Jewish athlete who will
represent the United States in the
Tokyo Olympics this fall. Bregman
captured the middleweight division
(176 pounds) in the Olympic Judo
trials, after winning the National
AAU 165-pound championship. Ac-
cording to the director of the Na-
tional Championships, Bregman is
the greatest Judo player in the
United States, bar none.
Standing only 5'7", Jim began
to compete in judo at the age of
12. Following graduation from high
school, he persuaded his parents to
allow him to continue his academic
and judo studies at Sophia Univer-
sity in Tokyo. He became so pro-
ficient in the sport that the Japa-
nese urged him to return to the
United States last April for a shot
at a national crown and an Olym-
pic berth.
Bregman captured the AAU title
with a victory over the Pan Ameri-
can champ from Brazil. He then
took on the winner of the heavy-
weight division, who eventually be-
come the overall victor, and lost
in a close decision. The heavy-
weight failed to throw him! Jim's
performance earned him the AAU's
most valuable player award.
Incidentally, when he returns
to Japan in the fall, he will com-
pete in the first judo -competition
in Olympic history.

Israel's Olympic basketball hopes
were dashed in the European Zone
qualifying trials held in Switzer-
land. The Israelis finished eighth
in a 14-team field with a 4-4 record.
Their victories were against West
Germany (65-56), Austria (62-45),
Greece (53-41) and Switzerland
(79-53). They lost to West Ger-
many (68-55), Belgium (78-69),
Finland (60-55) and Hungary (61-
55). Only Finland and Hungary
qualified for the Olympic compe-
tition, and therein lies a story.
The only real - balm the Israelis
received was the news that they
probably will host the Mediterra-
nean eliminations for the European
basketball championships in 1966.
They also have an excellent chance
of staging the European finals in
1967.

cabin Games Committee, has
returned from I s r a e 1. Gildes-
game met with Vladimir Lavrow,
secretary of the USSR Embassy in
Tel Aviv, and discussed possible
Soviet participation in the 1964
World Maccabiad. "There is, as yet,
nothing positive to indicate that
Soviet athletes will participate,"
says the IMGG chairman.
David Broadsky, a 17-year-old fur
worker, is being touted by the Rus-
sians as one of the future stars of
international table tennis. David
won the USSR national title in
1963. And speaking about national
champions, the United States titlist
is Erwin Klein, of the Los Angeles
Westside Jewish CC. He recently
was featured in a Sports Illustrated
magazine story.

F R 0 M THE NOW-IT CAN-BE-
TOLD-DEPT.: When the Los An-
geles Dodgers' Sandy Koufax was
given a "Night" in New York on
June 5, several members of the
championship Tomahawks, a team
Sandy played with in the Ice
Cream and Schoolboy's League in
1952, were in attendance. They all
lamented the fact that the Toma-
hawks' star pitcher was not there
for the occasion. Dr. Mike Fields
was busily involved in surgery. It
seems that Koufax was the Toma-
hawks' first baseman and doubled
as a relief pitcher! Too bad we
never got the chance to see Dr.
Fields operate! . . . By the way,
the award presentation to Sandy
once again featured a right-handed
pitcher!

NEW YORK (JTA) — A State The court ordered oral hearings
Supreme Court justice dismissed on the briefs for today.
two suits seeking removal of the
controversial mural at the Jordan
ONE WEEK ONLY
Pavilion at the World's Fair.
Judge George Postel ruled
against the suits, one brought by
the Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith and the other by Robert
Blaikie, a Deocratic party leader
who filed as an individual. Both
suits contended that the mural
was offensive to Jews and others.
Judge Postel held that neither
the City of New York nor the
World's Fair Corp. had the right
to approve or disapprove the
mural. Agreeing that the mural
was offensive, he expressed
regret that the Jordan Pavilion
officials had not removed it vol-
"My Son, the folk singer"
untarily.
In a related action, briefs were
filed today in Queens Criminal
Court in a hearing on charges of
violation of World's Fair anti-
picketing regulations against 12
officials of the American Jewish

In 1831, President Jackson ap-
pointed Stevens T. Mason to the
office of Secretary and Acting
Governor of the Michigan Terri-
tory. Only 19, he was probably the
youngest American ever to re-
ceive such an honor, and one of
the state office buildings in Lans-
ing is named for him.
