Koufax, Greenberg:
Both Had Injuries


(Copyright, 1965, JTA, Inc.)

The many injuries of Sandy Kou-
fax bring to mind the problems
encountered by Hall of Famer
Hank Greenberg during his car-
eer. Greenberg missed most of the
1935 World Series and the season
of 1936, due to a broken wrist. He
also lost four years to the Army
Air Corps, from 1940-45 . . .
The Houston Astros sent pitcher
Larry Yellin to their Oklahoma
City farm club . . • Records show
that Larry Sherry of Detroit has
been among the top 10 relief
pitchers over the last five years.
In that time he has 33 wins and
37 saves . . . Sid Gordon was one
of the original Milwaukee Braves
who attended the Braves' opening
day ceremony.
The Maccabiah Games, which
will take place in Israel in August.
keep turning out outstanding ath-
letes in all sports . . .
Bill Silverberg of the Univer-
sitiy of Kansas, an outstanding
distance runner, is a member of a
group now in Africa which is
holding clinics and giving demon-
strations in track and field. In
his first competition in Casablan-
ca, Morocco, Bill recorded 3:57.6
for 1,500 meters. The rest of the
tour makes interesting reading.
It includes the United Arab Re-
public, Kenya, the Malagasy Re-
public, Uganda, and Tunisia.* Sil-
verberg may really have to run
fast to make it to Israel in time
for the Maccabiah Games.
Dr. Edich Segal, another dis-
tance runner, must be considered
one of the most unusual partici-
pants at the recent Boston Mar-
athon. Segal is a teacher of
classics at Yale. "When I left
Harvard after I got my doctorate
last year," said Segal. "they had
a little party for me and asked
me if I would continue running,
in the marathon. I said I prob-
ably couldn't because it came on
Monday and I would have Mon-
day classes at Yale. The dean of
Harvard said, 'You idiot. Give
them a test.' And that's what I
did." Sega finished 83rd in
2:57,36, and was happy to be
under three hours.
It happened during a tense mo-
ment in the National Basketball
Association playoffs between the
Boston Celtics and Philadelphia.
Adolph Schayes, coach of Phila-
delphia, leaped on to the court af-
ter a close play.
"That'll be a technical," screamed
referee Mendy Rudolph.
"For what?" asked Schayes.
"For jumping like a kangaroo,"
answered Mendy.
"Are you kidding?" laughed
Adolph. "If I could jump like a
kangaroo, I'd still be playing."

Reform Rabbis Urge
Taft-Hartley Repeal

WASHINGTON — The Central
Conference of American Rabbis
has called for an immediate repeal
of Section 14 (B) of the Taft-
Hartley Act to eliminate a statute
which has impeded the growth of
labor, fostered State right-to-work
laws and aided opponents of civil
rights legislation to suppress the
Negro and other minority groups.
Rabbi Richard G. Hirsch, direc-
tor of the Religious Action Center
of Reform Judaism, Washington,
D. C., told the members of the
House Committee on Education and
Labor that the current law has be-
come "a symbol of anti-unionism."
Rabbi Hirsch testified on behalf
of the CCAR, an association of
875 Reform Jewish spiritual lead-
ers serving more than one million
congregants in this country. He
told the Congressmen that there
exists a direct relationship between
civil rights, the State right-to-work
laws and our nation's fight against

`Aged Corps' Idea Foreseen as Service to Both Elderly and Labor Force

the elementary and secondary ed-
ucation bill while it was still pend-
ing. He said the Council "rightly
took its stand because it views edu-
cation as education and not as a
branch of public relations or an off-
shoot of community relations."
Dr. Goelman added that "this
unprecedented action on the part
of the NCE" entitles its leader-
ship which, he said, represents
the Jewish education profession
of all shades and tendencies, to
call upon dissenting organiza-
tions to "call a halt to misjudg-
ment and misrepresentation."
Samuel Halperin, director of
the legislative service branch of
the United States Office of Edu-
cation, added that the measure
was designed to help all American
school children "receive the best
education possible, regardless of
the school they attend." He as-
serted that to assure protection
of the church-state separation doc-
trine, the law required that funds
go only to public educational
agencies and that "the supervision
and control of all programs" under
the law "rest with public agen-
Arnold Aronson, director of pro-
gram planning of the National
Community Relations Advisory
Council, told a session of the meet-
ing that federal aid to sectarian
education was a threat to the
state-church separation principle
and to the American public school
The new law is of immediate
significance to Jewish education
because pupils of Jewish all-day
schools are eligible for help under
the measure, which authorizes
$100,000,000 for the next school
year for textbooks, audio-visual
materials and library books on a
loan basis for both public and
private school pupils.
Bernard Postal, director of pub-
lic information of the Jewish Wel-
fare Board, said it was "shocking"
that American Jewish communities
are not training personnel for po-
sitions in communal public rela-
tions and communications posts.
Mrs. Mollie Spector, district su-
pervisor of the Federation of Jew-
ish Family Service, called for
closer ties between the rabbinate
and social workers to "preserve
and strengthen Jewish family life."
American Jews were urged to
set up a method to arrive at "a
Jewish consenus on matters of pub-
lic policy," by Dr. Ben Halpern,
professor of Near Eastern'. and Ju-
daic studies at Brandeis Univer-
sity. He urged that the 5,500,000
American Jews must establish
some way to reach basic agree-,
ment among themselves on issues
involving their relationships with
American society as a whole. He
warned that if they do not achieve
this consensus, the Jewish com-
munity may be subjected to pow-
ei.ful disruptive forces "which
could quite conceivably tear it
apart, dissolve its union, or cause
it to lose or cast off its outer mem-
The notion that the Jewish peo-
ple have responsibility for the
death of Jesus is "still distressing-
ly alive and a critical factor in
perpetuating anti - Semitic preju-
dice," Rodney Stark, of the Survey
Research Center, University of
California, declared.
He reported that a University of
California study, sponsored by the
Anti-Defamation League of Bnai
Brith, of attitudes toward Jews on
the part of "church-a t t ending
Christians" suggested that Christ-
ian leadership — Protestant and

—Rose Macaulay

An "aged corps" as a counter-
part to the Youth Corps was en-
visioned by Robert Morris, pro-
fessor at the Graduate School for
Advanced Studies in Social Wel-
fare of Brandeis University.
Speaking at the 67th annual na-
tional conference of Jewish Com-
munal Service at the Sheraton Ho-
tel, Philadelphia, Morris suggested
that retired elderly men and wom-
en be utilized to swell the labor
force which would perform essen-
tial services to improve our society.
Morris predicted that the pas-
sage of the Medicare bill will
have an influence on income
available to most non-profit agen-
cies. Additional income from this
source will probably facilitate
further conversion of some parts
of home for the aged operations
into chronic hospital functioning,
he said.
Development of a program of
Jewish education for the total Jew-
ish community was called for by
Louis L. Kaplan, president, Bal-
timore Hebrew College.
A high State Department offi-
cial said the United States stands
accused of discrimination, bigo-
try and hypocrisy in the eyes of
the world because of our present
immigration law with its quota
system based on national origin.
Abba P. Schwartz, administrator,
Bureau of Security and Consular
Affairs, U.S. Department of State,
addressing the annual meeting of
the Federation of Jewish Agencies.
HIAS and Council Migration Serv-
ice of Philadelphia, held in conjunc-
tion with the United HIAS Service,
at the National Conference of Jew-
ish Communal Service, said:
"The system seeks to preserve
preference based on race and place
of birth in the admission of immi-
grants to the United States. This
not only results in discrimination
in our hospitality to different na-
tionalities, but also reflects upon
our own citizens. Our present im-
migration law seems to be based
on the unacceptable and indefen-
sible theory that some persons are
better than others because of their
ethnic origin.
"We have removed all elements
of second-class citizenship from
our statute books by the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. We must, simil-
arly, remove all elements in our
immigration law which suggest
there are second-class people."
Jewish groups continuing op-
position to the Federal Aid to
Education Act of 1965 were criti-
zed by the president of the Na-
tional Council for Jewish Educa-
Dr. Elazar Goelman, dean of the
Federation of Jewish Agencies of
Greater Philadelphia Gratz Col-
lege, described 196,5 as a turbulent
year for both American general
and Jewish education, and said that
the controversy around the federal
aid to education bills seems to
have subsided with the enactment
of the bill by a large majority in
both houses of Congress.
"However, some Jewish bodies,
for lack of a positive program," he
said, "vowed to oppose the act.
Other groups, who until recently
were antagonistic to the proposed
law, are now crowding government
offices pretending to represent
Jewish day school education and
insisting on having a hand in im-
plementing the act, which they
still cannot stomach."
Dr. Goelman pointed out that the
Council overwhelmingly endorsed
