Amazing Arthritic Pitcher Back at Work
Once again, the arthritic pitcher. the amazing Sandy Koufax, has led his team to victory in the National
League, and has helped the Los Angeles Dodgers become contestants for the world's championship in baseball.
On Sunday afternoon, with the league championship at stake, Sandy won his 27th victory of the year — the
largest number of winning games to his credit for a single year in his career. He defeated the Phillies Sunday
by a score of 6 to 3.
Only three days earlier, Sandy won his 26th game against the St. Louis Cardinals, 2 to 1, and struck out
13 Cards, setting a new record in that game to become the first major league pitcher to register 300 or more
strikeouts for three years in a row.
Now Sandy is on the mound again — battling for another world championship for his team.
The photo on the right shows him throwing the last pitch in his triumphant game against the Cards.

Shaarey Zedek Seeks,
Formula for Solving
Teacher Staff Crisis
Having reached a most critical stage of labor
relations involvements, Congregation Shaarey Zedek's
officers hope to arrive at a formula over the week-end
to solve the pressing issue that resulted primarily
from the dismissal of two veteran teachers a day before
the scheduler' election meeting that was held Sept. 13.
An effo to resolve the issues, at a meeting of
Synagogue oh. ials and representatives of the teachers
--including the two dismissed educators—held Tues-
day night failed to reach decisions because of a re-
ported adamant stand of synagogue spokesmen not to
rehire the fired teachers. Since then, however, The
Jewish News learns that an offer to rescind the tele-
gram of dismissal has been made, with a proposal for
a Din Tora.
In view of the approaching semi-annual meeting
of the congregation next Thursday, it is additionally

UNITED NATIONS — Abba Eban, Israel's foreign minister, Tuesday called upon the
Arab states to observe . the oft-repeated United Nations principles of coexistence and peaceful
settlement of all disputes. At the same time, he called upon the Soviet Union, which has been
in the forefront here of the drive toward stressing the principle of co-existence, to extend observ-
ance of that principle toward USSR Jewry. In this context, he mentioned the Soviet Union
Eban made these statements, among many others, in delivering his major address of
the current session of the General Assembly before a plenary meeting of the body. He spoke
during the "general debate," a procedure in which highest ranking leaders of UN delegations
voice the major foreign affairs policies currently guiding their respective governments.
Noting, half-way through his long, 19-page address, that behind the Israeli-Arab frontiers,
established by armistice agreements reached in 1949, "the national life of sovereign states has
become crystallized in an increas-
ingly stable mold," the Israeli for-
Hess Alone Still an Spand aii
eign minister stated that "there is
some evidence that thoughtful
minds in the Middle East are be-
coming skeptical about threats to
change the existing territorial and
political structure by armed force."
He pointed out that "such threats
and the policies concerted to sup-
port them" violate not only the bi-
lateral Israel-Arab armistice agree-
ments but violate also the UN

AUL study Refutes Charge of Strong Negro
Anti-Sen-iitism; Advises Jewish Community
Focus Attention on Main Sources of Bigotry
Interim figures of a scientific study of Negro attitudes made public by the Anti-Defamation League
of Bnai Brith not only refute a recurring charge of strong Negro anti-Semitism but declare that Negroes
"feel more friendly toward Jews than toward other whites."
The study, now under way at the University of California Survey Research Center under the direction
of sociologist Gary T. Marx, will be published upon completion next spring under the title "Protest and
Part of a five-year research project underwritten by ADL to examine patterns of American prejudice, a
preliminary report of the study's findings was made by Benjamin R. Epstein, ADL's national director, at
the human relations organization's national executive committee meeting held this week at the Ambassador
Epstein said he was making the report now because talk of Negro antagonism toward Jews had
seriously disturbed the Jewish community.
"On the basis of the study's findings," he asserted, "I think the Jewish community would be well
advised to focus its attention on the main sources of American anti-Semitism and to drop undue preoccupa-
tion with Negro anti-Semitism which only serves to divert energies from the civil rights struggle."
Epstein said the study reveals that most Negroes' attitudes toward Jews are comparable to their attitudes
toward whites in general. Where there are differences, he said, they tend to be in favor of Jews. For example:
Nationally, 24 per cent of Negroes queried said that Jewish landlords are better than other white landlords, 7 per cent
said they are worse. Special area samples taken showed that in New York City 17 per cent thought Jewish landlords are
better, 9 per cent, worse. In Chicago, 20 per cent thought they are better, 6 per cent worse; in Atlanta, 31 per cent better,
4 per cent worse; in Birmingham, 19 per cent and 4 per cent.
Nationally, 20 per cent said Jewish store owners are better than other white store owners, 7 per cent said they
In Atlanta, 32 per cent said Jews are better, 4 per cent worse. In Birmingham, the percentages were 28 per
cent and 5 per cent.
Thirty-four per cent of the total sample said Jews are better to work for, 19 per cent said they are worse than
Seventy per cent said Jews are better than other whites, when it comes to hiring Negroes.
Forty-five per cent believed Jews to be more in favor of civil rights than other whites, only 3 per cent felt Jews are
zes,4 in favor.
EpStein said that nothing in the study to date shows that involvement of Jews in the economic life
of many Negro ghettoes has led Negroes to single out Jews for special hostility. The study, he went on to say,
reveals that Negroes have generally favorable dealings with Jewish store owners.
Balder von Schirach
Rudolph Hess at
Spandau Prison near Berlin. Only Rudolph Hess is left.
With the release of two Nazi criminals, Balder von Schirach,
the Nazi youth leader who led hordes of youngsters into the
Hitler hate army, and Albert Speer, Rudolph Hess alone
remains in Spandau Prison near Berlin. The Allied Powers
—the United States, Great Britain and France—are seeking
Russian accord to close the prison where Hess is now the lone
inmate, or to transfer him to another prison. Last weekend,
German youth demonstrated, shouting for Hess' release. Police
charged that the youth were drunks and rowdies. Von Schirach,
59, now is blind in one eye. Speer, 61, is in good health and
plans to resume practice as an architect. The Spandau Prison
was built in 1878 for 660 prisoners. (Related story, Page ;.%).
