Cricket Players Make History

No. 537

Sholom Post No. 5:;7
Auxiliary in 1949.


(copyright 1970, JTA, Inc.)

Aron (Ali) Bacher of South
Africa made history recently when
he captained his country's cricket
team in a test match against
Australia in Cape Town.. A physici-
an from Johannesburg, Bachcr
thus became the first Jew ever to
lead a national cricket team. He
was joined on the squad by another
Jewish player, Dennis Gamey, 29,
the best wicketkeeper in South
It was Bacher's ninth interna-
tional match and Gamsy's first.
An outstanding batsman, Bacher,
27, toured England with the South
African team in 1965, and in 1966
captained the Transvaal team that
handed Australia its first evar
cricket defeat in South Africa,
going back to 1902.
Bacher has also been selected to
captain the South African team
that is scheduled to visit Great
Britain later this year. Officials
have expressed concern over the
trip since the recent visit of a
South African rugby team to Bri-
tain caused so many demonstra-

organized in 1946 and the

Our Post and Auxiliary are represented very well in the

many community relation projects throughout Metropolitan


We are very proud of our services to all the Veterans


Last year we organized a Youth Education Scholarship


Fund to send a deserving student to college.







Abel Kiviat and Allen Rosen-
berg are two recent additions to

the Helms Athletic Hall of Fame. A
middle distance runner, Kiviat
represented the Irish - American
A.C. of New York City prior to
World War I. Between 1909 and
1914, he captured nine U.S. and
three Canadian championships at
distances from 600 yards to cross
country. In 1912 he set a world
record of 3:55.8 ia the 1500-meters,
and .then was runner-up in that
event at the Olympic Games - in
Stockholm. He competed in track
until 1925, and is active today, at
77, as an official at the indoor
meets in New York City.
Like Kiviat, Rosenberg likes
speed, but prefers his in a racing
shell. He coached and coaxed the
U.S. Maccabia Games team in
1961, and was the coach of the gold
medal eight - oared crew at the
1964 Olympics Games in Tokyo.
Rosenberg served as president of
the Rowing Coaches Association
America in 1965, and coached t he

Vesper Boat Club crew until hree
years ago when ha moved to
Rochester, N.Y., where he works
as a patent attorney for Kodak.
He has since organized the
Rochester Rowing Club and brought
it into prominence.
