Neal Walk Runs to Phoenix Suns

By JESS SILVER

(Copyright, 1969, JTA, Inc.)

The United States Maccabia
Games basketball squad lost its
top prospect when Neal Walk
struck gold in Arizona. The big
center from Miami Beach and the
University of Florida signed a
three-year - upper-six-figure agree-
ment with a no-cut clause" to pity
for the Phoenix Suns of the Na-
tional Basketball Association.

A second and third team All-
America selection, Walk was a
second round draft choice of bo:h
the American Basketball Associa-

older league in order to play

Rights Unit Asks Apology
From Columbia Journal
for Article Called Biased

NEW YORK (JTA)—The New
York City Commission on Human
Rights called on Columbia Col-
lege and tlie college alumni pub-
lication. Columbia Today, to apolo-
gize publicly for an article in its
spring 1968 issue on the student
revolt at Columbia which the com-
mission said was either "a delib-
erate attempt on the part of the
author to invoke an anti-Semitic
response" or revealed that the
author was "astonishingly naive
about the way in which the poison
of anti-Semitism spreads."
The article, written by George
C. Keller, editor of the maga-
zine, said that nearly all of the
leaders and many of the mem-
bers of the Students for a Demo-
cratic Society at Columbia were
Jewish and noted that the fam-
ily name of Mark Rudd, then
SDS chairman, "originally was
Rudnitsky."
The commission, which reached
a unanimous decision condemning
the magazine for the article, acted
on complaint of Paul O'Dwyer
who accused the magazine of anti-
Semitism. Keller, who subse-
quently resigned to become a spe-
cial assistant to the president of
the State University of New York.
denied the charge.
The commission noted that the
magazine was protected from le-
gal action under the First Amend-
ment but declared it would use the
' - sanction of public disapproval"
to protest against a - shabby exer-
cise in bigotry."

Rhode Island's
Jewish Governor

By RABBI SAMUEL SILVER

(A Seven Arts Feature)

The new governor of Rhode Island
is the vice president of his shill.
Judge Frank Licht, a Democrat
rode out the Nixon tide and ousted
his opponent, the former encum-
bent.
Tiniest of all states in territory,
Rhode Island exceeds many others
in population and has a record of
liberalism which goes all the way
back to Roger Williams. In the
state capitol of Rhode Island you
will find a large plaque saluting the
Jews who came to this country in
1654.
Judge Licht is, of course, not the
first Jewish chief executive of an
American state. New York, Illinois
and Oregon are among the states
who have had Jewish governors.
Judge Licht is of that breed
of Jewish public serrants who
are comfortable in their Jewish-
ness. Not all have been. Bran-
deis. Lilienthal and Fortas are
officials whose appointment to
high office evoked opposition
by anti-Semites, but none of
those three men enjoyed their
Jewishness. Of course Brandeis
was a Zionist, but he wasn't
7111101 of a Jew. His Zionism was
patronizing, something like Lord
Balfour's.
There was a time when many offi-
cials of the Jewish faith were most
self-conscious of their identity and
played it down. Even Frankfurter,
also regarded as a Zionist, thought
little of Judaism. Asked once whe-
ther his Jewishness was a force in
his life, he refused to answer and.
great though he was, Frankfurter
was almost juvenile when he said
once that he soured on Judaism
because of one experience as a
youngster at a service he didn't
like. Sen. Gruening, who just lost
his Senate seat, is also often re-
ferred to as Jewish, but he would
rather not have that appelation
(Jewish ).
Judge Licht is another type.
Like Jarits. Goldberg and Ribi-
coff. he exults in his Jewishness.
His spiritual leader. Rabbi Eli
Bohnen. of Providence's Temple
EinanwEl has nahas from him.
and rice versa. The gorernor.was
a Zionist from his youth and has
been active in everything Jew-
ish (as lie has ben in a host of
general endavors.)
Indeed Judge Licht's synagoge is
full of the new brand of prominent
Jews. Its membership includes a
supreme court justice of the state,
two district judges, the police com-
missioner of Providence, the adju-
tant general of the state national
guard, and the present superintend-
! ent of the Providence school system.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier
Golda Meir was reported to have
sent a personal message to Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon urging him
not to repeat the "mistake" made
in 1957 when the United States
and the Soviet Union compelled
Israel to withdraw from the Sinai
Peninsula and the Gaza Strip from
which Israel had ousted Egypt in
the 1956 Sinai campaign. The re-
port appeared in the usually well-
informed afternoon daily. Maariv.
There was no confirmation or
denial from the premier's office.

Participant in the developmental
career guidance project of the col-
lege of education of Wayne State
University, Weisz served as vice
president of Hillel Day School and
will be president-elect as of May
29. He is a member of the com-
munity relations committee of the
Jewish Community Council.

According to Maariv. Mrs. Meir
reminded Nixon. who was Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's vice
president at the time. that as a
result of the action of the super-
powers, the explosive situation
that had prevailed prior to the
Sinai campaign had been restored.
This soon became active belli-
gerence between Israel and the
Atab states and this. in turn. led
to another war.

Mrs. Meir was described as
asking President Nixon to let the
people of the region settle their
affairs without Big Power inter-
ference. This, she reportedly- said.
would be the best for all con-
cerned.
