Two interesting devel-
opments in the waning days,
of the basketball season
come to the fore that
should be of interest to Jew-
ish hoop aficionados. Num-
ber one, Alcee Perry, the
Black hero of Maccabi Tel
Aviv's victories over the-So-
viet Union, Czechoslovakia
and Verase of Italy to cap-
ture the European Cup, is
slated to arrive home next
week and will be under
pressure for the next few
weeks to come back to Is-
rael in order to rejoin the
Maccabi club.
Number two. Alexander
Gomulsky, the Jewish
coach of the Red Army
team which fell to the Mac-
cabi five in Antwerp, Bel-
gium, in the European Cup,
apparently no longer is in
disfavor with the Soviet bas-
ketball hierarchy and has
been selected as the coach
of the Soviet Olympic team
for 1980.
Perry has delayed his re-
turn to the United States in
order to have his teeth
fixed at the expense of the
Maccabi Tel Aviv club.
They had promised him
when he arrived in Israel
last fall that they would
take care of his dental bill
and they are making good
on this promise.
Between visits to the den-
tist chair; Perry has been
on the hot seat with the

manager of the Maccabi
five, the Israeli press and
rabid followers of basket-
ball in Israel who are deter-
mined to get him back
come hell or high water.
Perry has quite a decision
to make since several NBA
clubs now are interested in
the possibility of him join-
ing the professional fold in
the United States, and there
is a likelihood he could
make one of three teams
which are going to speak to
him upon his arrival in the
United States.
There is only so much, fi-
nancially, that Maccabi can
do to induce Perry to re-
turn. He is only available
for Cup games, and since
only a few of those are
played, unless one team
goes all the way to the
finals, a player such as
Perry has no worth to an Is-
raeli team during the regu-
lar national league season.
He must stay in shape, prac-
tice daily and then sit idly
by as his team plays in the
league contests because he
is not Jewish.
It is quite likely that one
of the reasons his team-
mate Jim Boatwright con-
verted to Judaism is that,
quite frankly, he was dis-
satisfied with this type of
operation and wanted to
play regularly. Boatwright,
a Mormon of religious bent.
somehow saw the light and
converted to Judaism. Upon
his conversion, of course,
he became eligible to play

on a—regular basis for the
Maccabi team in the nation-
al league. There has been
talk that pressures have
been exerted on Perry to do
likewise, but this is only
hearsay, and seems improb-
able.
The fact of the matter is
that Perry didn't enjoy his
stay in Israel that much
and only became excited
with his basketball perform-
ance after the team
knocked off the Red Army
club. Only then did he show
any emotion and desire to
possibly stay.
So far as Gomulsky is con-
cerned, he was a kingpin in
Soviet basketball for many
years until pressure on the
Reds began to come in
from so many Jews who
wanted to emigrate to Is-
rael. As the demand for
emigration arose, Go-
mulsky's popularity waned
with the Basketball Feder-
ation. Ultimately he was
brought up on trumped up
charges of trying. to
smuggle gold into the
USSR, and a ban was im-
posed upon him so that he
could not coach outside of
the country. He was permit-
ted to continue as mentor
of the Russian Army team,
however.
Apparently all is forgiven
now, and Gomulsky once
again is back in good stand-
ing. Apparently the Reds
trust him, and proof, if
needed, is evident in the
fact that his son Vladimir

Labor Party to Reorganize,
Peres Nominated as Chairman

TEL AVIV

(JTA)—The
Labor Party, battered and
in disarray after its defeat
in the May 17 elections,
moved to reorganize and
tighten ship in order to tbe-
come an effective opposi-
tion faction in the next
Knesset.
The party's organizing
committee decided that
from now on the party will
have a chairman rather
than a secretary general. It
nominated Defense Min-
ister Shimon Peres, leader
of the party, for that post.
The decision was moti-
vated in part by the resigna-
tion of secretary general
Meir Zarmi on the eve of
the elections. The party

chairman will head an ad-
ministrative team to deal
with day-to-day party mat-
ters. It will not include
Knesset members but will
be composed of persons
with strong administrative
abilities.
In addition, the organiz-
ing committee decided to es-
tablish a body of 13-15 mem-
bers, including Labor Align-
ment MKs, to deal with po-
litical matters.
The new body will con-
stitute the party's lead-
ership and it too will be
headed by Peres. The
changes recommended are
subject to approval by the
Labor Party Executive and
its Central Committee.

has been the translator for
the Red Junior team which
has been touring the United
States the past few weeks.
If his dad were still in the
doghouse, son Vladimir
would not have been given
this prime assignment.
Gomulsky comes from Or-
thodox Jewish stock. and on
his only visit to Israel a dec-
ade or so ago, did look
around to secure a new pair
of tefillin for his father. He
brought this back to his
aging dad, and from what
we can make out, this little
act put him in bad stead
with the authorities which
resulted in his basketball de-
motion. Many thought it
was his demise, basketball
speaking, but apparently--he
is headed back to the top.
Those who saw the Mac-
cabi club beat his team in
Belgium advise us that
while he coached in his
usual bristling manner, he
took the defeat in good
grace and was one of the
first to congratulate the Is-
raeli players. The following
week he was permitted to
leave the country to come
to the United States with an
augmented Army club
which walloped the
daylights out of Arizona
State.
