Maccabiah Is Summarized as Success;
World Union Plans for 10th Games in '77

It is doubtful any Ameri-
can team participating in in-
ternational competition ever
set a record to compare with
the one compiled by Coach
Eugene Weiss' wrestlers in
Greco-Roman grappling, fa-
vored by most Europeans.
The U.S. won seven gold
medals and two silvers. In
straight wrestling it was nine
golds and one silver, an
amazing display by a tough,
well-trained squad.

He noted that dozens of
positions for community so-

because of a shortage of
trained manpower.
Adding community social
workers to present staffs
would also help solve prob-

who were involved in a hun-

man said.
The reason for the short-
age, he noted, is that many

away from field work be-
cause of the low pay in
the profession, unsatisfactory
working conditions in wel-

man E. Talmadge of Georgia
in an address reprinted in
the Congressional Record,
quoted the Georgia maga-
zine, Dixie Business, which
named Israel Premier Golda
Meir to its 1973 list of the
world's 10 greatest living
"Hubert F. Lee, editor of
Dixie Business since 1929,
said that history will record
Mrs. Meir as one of the all-
time great leaders — men
or women," Sen. Talmadge
Mrs. Meir received an il-
luminated scroll as a me-
mento from Dr. James P.
Wesberry, pastor of At-
lanta's Morningside Baptist
Church, who was named the
27th "Man of the South" by
Dixie Business.
In its article on Golda, the
magazine finds an ally for
her as it quotes from the
Bible (46th Chapter of
Genesis), "And God spake
unto Israel, in the visions of
the night, and said . . . Fear
not L-.)\ go down into Egypt;
for I will there make of thee
a great nation. I will go
down with thee into Egypt
and I will also surely bring
thee up again."
A second quotation tells
how Mrs. Meir "in 1948
helped fulfill the prophecy
of Isaiah: 'And the nations
of the world shall bring all
your brethren out of all the
nations . . . to my holy
mountain Jerusalem, said
the Lord.' "

TEL AVIV—The 9th Mac-

As usual, the Israeli press
is critical about the conduct
of the 1973 games. Some writ-
ers try to equate the inferior
performances in some sports
events with the overall con-
duct of the games. This is un-
fair. Trie, some of the per-
formances on the field and

to world and Olympic per-
