The Best of Everything

(Continued from Page 32)
"He doesn't say how that
care will be exercised, since
the outfit- has not yet de-
cided whether to create
their own formula or to buy
a private label dog food —
all of which are made with
distinctly non-kosher prod-
ucts.
"The food will come in
three flavors; Brisket of
Beef, Almost Chopper Liver
and Chicken (without the
soup) and will bear a photo-
graph of Mrs. Klein, actu-
ally an old photo found in an
antique shop.
"The can also boasts,
`Quality since 5736.'
That's the Hebrew year
when the food was
hatched. I wonder if dogs
can sue for false advertis-
ing?"
Her broadcast of April 6,
1979 . . . "In my last broad-
cast I reported the latest de-
velopment in pampered pet
mania — kosher style dog
food. The reaction has gone
from amusement to out-
rage, depending on how
seriously one takes this
kind of nonsense.
"Among those who defi-
nitely were not amused was
Allan Cohen, president of
the Kosher Meat Dealers
Association. For the past 15
years Mr. Cohen has waged
a lonely, and sometimes los-
ing battle, to place legal
limitations on the indis-
criminate use of the word
`kosher.' The word is popu-
lar; the producers of the dog
food decided on it because
their tests indicated that
people perceive it as a
cleaner, more nutritious
product.
"Placing a label on a food

that implies it's kosher is
another — it's involved,
time-consuming, and not at
all cheap. A kosher label re-
quires the supervision of
men trained in the neces-
sary Judaic rituals, and can
only be used on foods pre-
pared in accordance with
Jewish law. So a lot of food
producers try for the name
without the game; they
place 'kosher style' labels on
foods that would not be
allowed in the back door of
any self-respecting
synagogue.
"New York and
California have laws
prohibiting the use of the
term 'kohser style' on the
grounds that the term is
deceptive. 'You can't be
imitation kosher or a lit-
tle bit kosher,' says Mr.
Cohen. 'It's like being a
little bit pregnant.'
"Mr. Cohen's bitterness
about the subject stems
from his long fight to place
legal sanctions on the mis-
use of the word. A bill was
passed in the Michigan
Legislature, and signed into
law by the Governor, in
1966. But no appropriation
or means of enforcement fol-
lowed; so unlike other
states, which take a firm
stand on violations, Michi-
gan lets the misuse, and the
deception, go unpunished,
and the Department of Ag-
riculture does nothing
about the flounting of the
law.
"One interesting side
note: the State Senator who
introduced the kosher bill
continued his fight for con-
sumer reform; some years
later, he was elected mayor
of Detroit."

18 Win Sports Honors

LOS ANGELES (JTA) —
Eighteen athletes were in-
ducted Sunday in the
Jewish Sports Hall of Fame
at an inaugural dinner
here. The Hall of Fame,
which is under the auspices
of the United States Com-
mittee Sports for Israel, will
be located at Israel's Win-
gate Institute.
Those inducted are: Red
Auerbach, who won nine
world championships as
coach of the Boston Celtics
in the National Basketball
Association; Jackie Fields,
world welterweight boxing
champion from 1929-30 and
1932-33; Benny Friedman,
an All-American quarter-
back at the University of
Michigan; Hank Green-
berg, who hit 331 home runs
for the Detroit Tigers
baseball team; Nat Holman,
president of the U.S. Com-
mittee Sports for Israel and
considered a top-ranking
basketball player and
coach.
Also, Hirsh Jacobs, a
leading horse trainer and
owner; Jimmy Jacobs, who
won every handball match
he played from 1955
through 1969; Irving Jaffee,
an Olympics gold medal
winner in ice skating;
Sandy Koufax, the former
pitcher for the Los Angeles
Dodgers; Benny Leonard,

world lightweight boxing
champion in 1917-1925; Sid
Luckman, the famed quar-
terback of the Chicago
Bears in the National Foot-
ball League.
Also, Barney Ross, who
held both the world
lightweight and welter-
weight boxing cham-
pionships; Abe Sapers- .
tein, the founder and
owner of the Harlem
Globetrotters; Adolph
Schayes, who played
with the Syracuse Na-
tionals in the National
Basketball Association;
Dick Savitt, who won the
Wimbledon singles
championship in tennis;
Mark Spitz, winner of
seven gold medals in
swimming in the 1972
Olympic Games; Sylvia
Wene, considered the
best woman bowler, and
Henry Wittenberg, con-
sidered one of the
greatest amateur
wrestlers.
The dinner was labeled
an "Evening of Jewish
Pride" and featured out-
standing stars of television
and the theater. The Hall of
Fame was the brainchild of,
among others, Joseph
Siegman, a Beverly Hills
producer who feels that not
enough is known about the
major role played by Jews in
sports.
