"WE SELL BECAUSE OF OUR REPUTATION"

Anti-Semitic Slurs at llockey Star Larry Zeidel.
Force NHL Investigation: Demand Apologies

TORONTO—Clarence Campbell,
president of the National Hockey
League, said that he would go
ahead with an investigation of the
clash between Larry Zeidel of the
Philadelphia Flyers, the only
Jewish player of the lea g u e,
and a member of the Boston Bruins
here last week which Zeidel said
was "provoked by anti-Semitic
slurs from the Bruins." One re-
mark purportedly involved a refer-
ence to the "gas chambers."

everything in our power to pre-
serve the State of Israel and the
Jewish people," Brig. Gen.
Yeshayahu Gavish said Monday
evening at a meeting of the
mechanical trade division of the
campaign.
"The Jews of the world helped
us morally and materially during
the June war," Aluf Gavish told
the group at the Standard City
Club. "Now we must prepare for

the next round and it is an enor-
mous task. We must have help with
our welfare programs so that the
people will not suffer and Israel
can divert its funds to the vital re
placement of defense equipment."

"but when Shack kept running at
me, the Bruin bench would say
'shove it down the Jew boy's
throat' and 'Jew boy—we're going
to put you in the gas chambers.'
I didn't want to get into any trouble
but it just went too far."

The NHL president said he had '
asked Zeidel to submit his corn-
; plaint against the Boston team in
its entirety and that Zeidel did so.
In New York the American
. Jewish Committee issued a state-
ment urging that apologies be
made to Zeidel. Acknowledging
that "we don't expect Garden Club
language at a hockey game,"
Nathan Perlmutter, the commit-
tee's director of domestic affairs
added that "a full apology to'
Zeidel and to the millions of Jews
and non-Jews who were brutally
murdered by the Nazis is in order."
Zeidel played with the Detroit Red
Wings in the early 1950's.
