The fact remains,
nevertheless, that Israel
has come a long way in
basketball, and the fu-

felt they could hold their
own with the smaller col-

to do at that early stage.
Since sport is a great
leveler, it is our fervent
hope and prayer that in
due time, the Israelis and
the Arabs will see their
way clear to mingle on the
sport fields rather than
the battlefields.
