Winners in the Maccabiah Reviewed

By JESS SILVER

(Copyright, 1965, JTA, Inc.)

The United States team com-
pletely dominated the recently
concluded Maccabian Games. The
Americans took home 75 gold
medals and numerous silver and
bronze medals. Israel was the run-
ner-up in gold medals with 31,
while Great Britain had 18. Of the
27 nations that took part in the
game, 20 of them won one or more
medals.
Bill Morgan, of San . Francisco,
and Lorraine Latzoff, of South
Africa, were the outstanding per-
formers in the track and field sec-
tion. Morgan captured the 5,000-
and 10,000-meter runs, setting
records in both. Bill Silverberg,
of Overland Park, Kansas, was
second at both distances. Morgan's
times were 14:23.6 for the 5,000,
and 30:55.5 for the 10,000.
Miss Latzoff, who is studying to
be a teacher, won three gold
medals and set three records. She
won the 100-meters in 11.9, the
200-meters in 25.0 and the 400-
meters in 59.4. She is 19 years old,
and is from Johannesburg. The
best mark by a woman performer
was the 5"5 3/4" high jump by
Michael Lamdani, of Israel; this
was an Israeli and Maccabian
record. The last time an American
girl won a gold medal in track
and field was 1935.
In the men's division, the United
States won 13 of the 22 events.
The biggest disappointment of the
Games was the relatively poor
showing in the field. Of the eight
field events, only one new record
was set, that by Meir Yakobi, of
Israel, who threw the hammer
179 2". Mary Eisner, of Cleveland
Heights, Ohio, won the high jump
for the only two American vic-
tories in the field. The other wins
went to the British in the long
jump, triple jump, and pole vault.
An Italian took the discus throw,
while a Swede won the javelin.
The track competition went
more to form, as records were set
or tied in nine of the eleven
events, with the 'U.S. winning all
but two. The gold medalists be-
sides Morgan were Gerry Ash-
worth, of Haverhill, Mass., in the
100-meters in 10.6; Roger Wolff,
of Los Angeles, in the 200-meters
in 21.7; Bill Shapiro, of Asheville,
in the 400-meters in 47.3; Rick
-.7mann, of San Diego, in the
leters in 1:51; Ray Roseman,
eat Britain, in the 1,500-
3:51.2; Richi Sheer, of
Kings, Md., in the 110-
hurdles in 14.8; Ian
~eat Britain, in the
nurdles in 54.1; and the
ay teams in the 400-meters
'00-meters, in 42.4 and
he 400-meter team was
of Ashworth, Jay Paritz,
'on, Ky., Rich Robinson,
c.a, Ill., and Sheer; while
meter relay had Ken
of Valley Stream, N.Y.,

Steve Lamb, of Baltimore, Md.,
Wolff and Shapiro.
Les Nathanson, of Dobbs Ferry,
N.Y., won the decathlon with 5,893
points, while 49 - year - old Henry
Laskau took the 3,000-meter walk
in 13:47.6. It was Laskau's fourth
triumph in this event and was only
three seconds behind the record
which he set in 1953. Laskau came
out of retirement to make the
team. "This is it," Henry said. "My
heart was in Israel, that is why I
came. But now I am through with
competitive athletics. In the next
Maccabian it will be my son
Howard, age 14, and after that
Michael, now age nine." Gerry
Ashworth also announced his re-
tirement from track.
The United States won the gold
medal in basketball with a 74-66
win over Israel. Steve Chubin, of
Valley Stream, N.Y., led the scor-
ing with 16 points. Tom Okker, of
Holland, won the men's tennis
singles by defeating Mike Franks,
of Los Angeles, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Franks
came back to take the doubles
crown along with Ron Goldman,
of Washington, D.C. The women's
singles went to Vicki Berner, of
Canada, over Esme Emanuel, of
South Africa, 6-4, 6-4. Miss Eman-
uel and Ruth Wolpert won the
women's doubles far South Africa.
Brazil won the volleyball compe-
tition over Israel, with the U.S.
third.
The Americans cleaned up in
the fencing, judo and gymnastics
events. Gold medal winners in
fencing were Dave Micahnik in
epee, and Wally Farber in saber.
In judo, Jim Bregman, Louis
Goldstein and Bernie Lepkofker
were winners. In gymnastics, Steve
Cohen, Dan Millman, Steve Jacob-
son, Abie Grossfeld, Mark Cohn
and Marianne Woolner were suc-
cessful.

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright, 1965, JTA, Inc.)

I read that Ambassador Gold-
berg raised his wine cup at the
reception to the President and
members of the United Nations,
and recited in Hebrew the prayer,
Bore Pri Hagafen — "Blessed art
Thou, 0 Lord, who created the
fruit of the vine."
Jews have many of these short
blessings. There is one for wine,
another for water, one for bread,
another for eating cake. I think the
Lord must like them better than
the regular prayers. They are
shorter and do not ask for any
favors or handouts. They just
praise God.
It goes to show a healthier cli-
mate of tolerance in the world that
Ambassador. Goldberg could do
what he did. Our generation has
seen some terrible things, but
maybe we are coming out of the
darkness.
Two cannibals were talking. One
said to the other, "1 don't like my
mother-in-law."
"So eat the noodles instead,"
said the second.
We have progressed from that
stage. We are not cannibals any
longer. Some do not view their
mothers-in-law with favor but they
have no wish to consume or digest
them in a biological way. We are
are not consistent, to be sure. A
friend remarked the other day that
the Hindus will not suffer the
slaughter of a cow, yet they have
no qualms about killing men in
war.
It is the goal of the United
Nations to correct such things. In
letters engraved on stone on the
grounds of the United Nations in
New York are inscribed the words
of the prophet Isaiah about the
coming of the time "when nations

will no more learn the art of war"
and men "will turn their swords
into ploughshares."
If members of the United Na-
tions were taught Hebrew, they
would be able to read the book
of Isaiah in Hebrew. There are
some good Hebrew teachers around
the United Nations. There are Mr.
Goldberg and Israel's Foreign Min-
ister Golda Meir, who used to be
a school teacher in Wisconsin.
Isaiah was really the father of
the idea of a United Nations and
more than that, of what might be
called a united peoplehood. "My
house shall be a house of prayer
for all nations," he said.
In time, the members of the
United Nations could take up the
study of the prayer book. In the
Rosh Hashanah prayer, Unsaneh
Tokef, they could read a specific
prayer for the establishment of a
United Nations. A prayer for Aguda
echas, one society for all people.
The prayer also asks for the end-
ing of the mamshelet zoion, the
government of arrogance or dicta-
torial governments.
Perhaps Mr. Goldberg might also
induce the members of the UN to
sit down and "learn." Prof. Nathan
Isaacs of Harvard once wrote a
book called "Study as a Mode of
Worship." The point of the book,
as the name implies ,is that the
Jews regarded studying as a form

noon, would sit down "to learn" as
an equivalent to praying.
For all to sit around and discuss,
instead of listening to speeches, it
seems to me, would be an improve-
ment for the United Nations. There,/
is an intolerable amount of speecb
making at the United Nations an(
all the time it becomes worse. Al
most every other week sees some
new country given its independence
and these new countries may have
no capital, no stable government,
no assets of any kind, but all of
them are masters at speech
making.
And that is not the worst of it.
The members of the United Nations
not only have to listen to the
speeches, but have to listen to it
as it is translated into several
languages. Sometimes no doubt
many of the delegates must feel
under the torrent of words to
which they must submit, that if
nuclear war did come, they have
not much to lose.
