Tackle Ron Mix of the San
Diego Chargers has been chosen
to the American Football League's
All-Star team for the sixth suc-
cesssive year. Mix, who played
college football at Southern Calif-
ornia, is 6-4 and weighs 250
pounds. He is a member of the of-
fensive team.
Coach Phil Handler of the Chic-
ago Bears has done an outstand-
ing job this year with the Bear
defense. He and a fellow coach
were awarded the game ball after
the Bears defeated the Baltimore
Colts 13-0. It was Baltimore's first
shutout since 1962.
Baltimore's owner Carroll Ros-
enbloom must have suffered
through that loss. A millionaire
businessman, Rosenbloom is his
team's most enthusiastic support-
er. So much so that he has said,
"I don't want any yachts, and I
don't want any castles. I would
just like to have about 30 more
championships, and then I'd be
Mike Belkin of Miami Beach
has been ranked No. 7 by the U.S.
Lawn Tennis Association for 1965.
This is by far his best showing;
he was ranked No. 17 last year.
Belkin currently attends Miami-
Dade Junior College. He dropped
out of Miami U. this summer to
play the _ tennis circuit. Canadian
born, Belkin drew a six-month
suspension when he failed to
fulfill tournament commitments
in Canada. It is said that the only
thing keeping him from the top
is his "powder puff" serve.
Israel will be represented at the
Orange Bowl Junior Tennis Cham-
pionships and Sunshine Cup which
will be played in Miami, Fla. The
two players from Israel will be
Suri Ariely and Rafi Melion. Ar-
iely is his country's National 16
and National 18 year old champion.
He attended a tennis camp in Ham-
tramck, Mich., last summer.
Because the Israeli players will
be present, the U.A.R. may keep
its players home as they did last
year. Eddie Herr, founder and
tournament director of the Sun-
shine Cup, has announced that
32 nations will participate. He
said that "It would be a shame
for these Arab players to miss the
tournament because of political
Israel is doing something to
advance her standing in the rac-
quet sports. A 10-court tennis
facility is to be built, and the
first new squash courts to be
constructed in the country in 25
years have just opened on the
campus of the Hebrew University.
The final statistics on the 1965
swimming season only proved
what everyone knew; Mark Spitz
is an exceptional swimming talent.

Anti-Semitism Charged in Belli's
Indictment of 'Injustice in Dallas'

defended Ruby and later was dis-
missed. But this lawyer has a
story to tell, and he tells it well in
an important book, "Dallas Just-
ice—The Real Story of Jack Ruby
and His Trial," which Belli has
written with Maurice C. Carroll
and has been published by David
It is not a pretty picture, and
Dallas justice does not emerge so
pleasant. Belli charges anti-Semi-
tism. He relates, for instance, an
incident in a barber shop. The
towel was about to be adjusted
around his neck when he heard
someone say ". . . and they got
those Jew psychiatrists out from
Maryland." "Yeah," someone else
said, "those slick Jew psychiatrists
with their slick Jew lawyers." And
Belli adds:
"Hitler had been out of power 19
years, but that was simply Nazi
stuff. I swept away the towel, and,
as the barber turned a startled
look toward me, I stood straight
up and gave the Nazi salute. `Ach-
tung,' I yelled. `Achtung, Heil
Hitler!' And I goose-stepped out of
the place while the barber stood
there open-mouthed, holding the
towel in his outstretched hands. It
was strange when I thought about
it that they would go in for that
sort of loose-lipped prejudice, be-
cause by then there was the most
polyglot collection of people around
that courthouse that Dallas had
ever seen."
Referring to the actions of Bill
Alexander of the Dallas DA's of-
fice, Belli quotes the court tran-
script and states he never could
"get straight the purpose" of the
line of questioning during which
Alexander asked:
"Well, you recognize that a Jew-
ish boy like that, discussing base-
ball scores with somebody from
Chicago, would do it with different
mannerisms and gestures than
maybe a couple of colored gentle-
men of African descent in South
Belli's story proceeds:

"That is bad enough, a bald
intrusion of racial terminology
during the trial of a Jew in a
city noted for aggressive white
Protestant narrow-mindedness.
But it is not what Alexander
said. He said `Jew-boy,' which
was typed up as the more eu-
phonious 'Jewish boy.'
"Even the transcript shows the
reaction — blustering defensive-
ness from Wade (Henry Wade,
Dallas County District Attor-
ney), smooth-it-over embarrass-
ment from Judge Brown. It
reads like this:
"Mr. Belli: I didn't get that—
`Jewish boy,' (`Jew-boy' I had re-
peated) is that what he referred
to? I would like to have that

Hungary Won't Give Up
Toeroek Documents

BONN (JTA) — The foreign
ministry of Hungary has refused

to hand over to West Germany the
original documents purportedly
showing that Dr. Alexander Toe-
roek, Bonn's chief counselor in the
embassy in Israel, had been a mem-
ber of the Arrow Cross, the Hun-
garian Fascist Party, during the
Hitler era, the West German For-
eign Office declared here Tuesday.
Dr. Toeroek had been accused
in the Communist press of Hun-
gary of having been a Nazi. Ef-
forts have been made by the for-

eign office here to obtain the al-
leged documentary evidence re-
garding Dr. Toeroek. But Buda-
pest, according to officials here,
has said, in refusing to hand over

the documents: "It is not our


Philadelphia Guidebook
Has Many Shortcomings

Esther M. Klein, who, with her
husband, Philip Klein, has been
publishing the Philadelphia Jewish
Times since 1946, has compiled "A
Guidebook to Jewish Philadelphia,
which has been published as a
paperback by Jewish Times In-
There is a vast amount of
formation about the city, its Jewisli
institutions and personalities.
Indeed, Mrs. Klein does recall
many of the sagas about the Qua-
ker City. This 190-page book ac-
counts for developments in col-
onial times, tells about Nathan
Levy who transported the Liberty
Bell from England to this country
in his own ship in 1752. Many
other stories are told and Jewish
institutions are evaluated.
There is much in the book about
the Kleins—Philip, his brothers,
the rest of the family, and about
their paper, the Jewish Times.
And it is here that the biased
view becomes apparent. The Jewish
Exponent history is treated so
shabbily, names such as David
Gaiter's, who was a forceful figure
in Philadelphia in his lifetime, and
who edited the Exponent, are o-
mitted. Such omissions, the re-
duced space given the Jewish
Publication Society and other
shortcomings reduce the merits
of this guidebook.

"The Court: Let him rephrase
it, Mr. Belli.
"Mr. Tonahill (Belli's associ-
ate): Is that supposed to make
some difference? Is he under-
taking to inject race prejudice
in the case now, Judge?"
"The Court: No, I don't think
so (!)."
"Mr. Wade: No, the word
wasn't even used. Let him read
"Mr. Tonahill: Well, do you
withdraw the racial prejudice in-
"Mr. Wade: You and your law-
yer are the ones that brought it
up. He can read the question if
he wants it. (Presumably he was
here granting the permission to
the court reporter that is cus-
tomarily passed upon by the
"Mr. Belli: I would like to
have the first part of it read.
(Thereupon the portion of the
question referred to was incor-
rectly read back by the reporter,
`You recognize that a Jewish
boy . . .').
"Mr. Belli: That's all I want-
"Mr. Alexander: Doctor, let
us rephrase it .. ."

Then, Belli pointed out that Pat-
rick Dean, "the man who had
He who doubts nothing knows
been responsible for protecting Os- nothing.
wald's life had given the most dam-
—Spanish Proverb
aging testimony of all against Os
wald's slayer." He reports in his
"Dean concluded that Ruby had
said he wanted to kill Oswald 'be-
cause he wanted the world to know
that Jews do have guts.' (Solidify-
ing the premeditation theme and
appealing to the prejudice so ram-
pant in white, Anglo-Saxon, Prot-
estant Dallas).
"We protested the anti-Semitic
reference. We demanded to know
if Ruby had been warned of his
right against self-incrimination."
In the main, Belli's book is an
indictment of Dallas justice, a con-
tention that Ruby did not get a
fair trial.


Try and Stop Me



NE OF THE late Adlai Stevenson's most widely quoted

quips came the day he consented to be interviewed on
TV by a gaggle of eager high school students. "As a man
who lost two elections to
Dwight Eisenhower,"
spoke up one of the ques-
tioners, "what is the best
advice you can give to
youthful politicians?"
"Never," replied Adlai
Stevenson, "run against a

war hero."

Gertrude Stein, no mod-
est violet she, never felt
that she was properly ap-
preciated by the American
public until her triumphant
tour of the U.S.A. in the
early nineteen thirties. The
fuss everybody made of her
on this trip tickled her so that she revised all her low estimates
of America's cultural level. As Alexander Woolcott put it, "A.
niche in time saved Stein."
Mrs. Bernstein shook a finger under a teacher's nose and
shrilled, "My Clarence came home today and told me you had
called him 'a scurvy elephant.' Is that a thing to call a seven.
year-old child?" Mrs. Bernstein was partially appeased when
she learned that her cherub hadn't gotten the message just right.
What the teacher had called him was "a disturbing element."

During the first intermission of an outdoor performance of
"Othello," Sir Laurence Olivier was stopped at the door to his
portable dressing room by a distressed lady who wanted direc-
tions to the New Haven bound bus. "But why," asked Sir Laur-
ence, "aren't you staying for the remainder of the performance?"
"Frankly," explained the lady, "I saw it years ago in Brooklyn
in Yiddish—and it hurts me to see what it loses in translation."



Tony Randall once had a landlady who told him proudly, "Jack
Dempsey was concealed and born in this very house!"
