British Sports Expert
Charges More Than
Half of Clubs Biased

LONDON (JTA) — The sports
editor of one of Britain's biggest
newspapers charged-that more than
half of the country's private golf
clubs discriminated against Jews,
and asserted that some of his
colleagues would make that esti-
mate even higher.
J. L. Manning, sports editor of
the London Daily Mail, made his
charges in an article commenting
on reports that a group of London
Jews planned legal action to have
a nondiscrimination clause inserted
in the ground lease of the Moor
Park Golf Club, in Hertfordshire.
The club is accused of discrim-
inating against Jewish players by
denying them membership. It has
den'ed the charge and its president
asserted that the club has some
Jewish members. The club leases
public lands for its course.
"My belief is that more than
half of Britain's 1,926 private
gold clubs discriminate against
Jews," the London Daily Mail
sports editor asserted. "Some of
my colleagues with a greater
knowledge put it as high as two-
thirds." He added that no one
knew the exact number "because
there is no official index of Jew-
baiting clubs. It is done by
stealthy attitudes and whispered
conventions. Some clubs won't
have any Jews. Others — even
more repugnantly—fix a quota."
The Race Relations Board, he
said, takes the position that, where
a public course is involved, it
would be reported to the local
conciliation committee. "The very
use of the phrase, 'conciliation,' "
he added, "makes the true sports-
man wince."

Disciplined Education
"I had to take my place along-
side of my father as he shaved at
six o'clock in the morning, and
say my early rules from the Latin
Grammar, and repeat the Greek
alphabet; and was obliged at these
early lessons to hold my head in-
clined towards him, so that in the
event of guilty fault, he might be
able to pull my hair without stop-
ping his razor or dropping his shav-
ing brush." —Anthony Trollope
