caused a storm of protest
though the irreveregt film
maker insists he is exposing

bigotry and intolerance.
On television we saw the
rather naive interpretation
of Hitler's last days in the
David Susskind production
for CBS, "The Bunker," an-
other whitewash of the
Nazis which couldn't even
be redeemed by Anthony
Hopkins' impressive per-
formance.
More effectively hand-
led was "Kitty Returns to
Auschwitz," a narrative
film - against the
background of the dread-
ful extermination camp
where the heroine recalls
the grim past.
"Masada," a magnificent
8-hour television epic was
directed by the late Boris
Segal for ABC, Universal
and Israeli industrialist
Arnon Milchan.
This brings us to the phe-

today by far the most effec-

Only When I Laugh," is
Simon's most serious film to
date. There are no one-
liners in the compassionate
comedy-drama that deals
with a Broadway actress
who has become an alco-
holic and is unable to care
for teen-aged daughter and
to face life in general.
"Producing is a logical ex-
tension of writing," he ex-
plained. "It's simply a mat-
ter of protecting my own
material." Thus, Simon
concerned himself only with
the creative side of "Only
When I Laugh" while Roger
M. Rothstein was in charge
of the physical production.

The characters in the drama
are portrayed by his wife,
Marsha Mason, with Kristy

James Coco and Joan Hac-
kett as her friends, and
David Dukes as her one-
time lover.

Teams Use Ineligible Players
In Quest for Championship

By HASKELL COHEN
(Copyright 1981, JTA. Inc.)

In the quest for supre-
macy and in the race for the
championship of the Israel
National Basketball
League. Some of the clubs
are taking action consi-
dered illegal by the Federa-
tion for International Bas-
ketball Associations (FIBA)
which controls amateur
basketball in 144 countries
throughout the world.
Each country in the FIBA
orbit is permitted to have
one non-citizen of the coun-
try involved as a member of
its basketball squad. In the
case of Israel, this means
that Israeli teams can ac-
quire the services of a non-
Jew who is a non-citizen and
permit him to play on its

team.

For some time now there
has been a considerable

amount of "cheating" so far
as hiding the religious

backgrounds of players is
concerned. The time has
come when this practice
must be curbed or ' re-
strained, otherwise Israeli
basketball is going to come
under heavy censure from
FIBA headquarters.
Right now there are
basketball players in Is-
rael who are masquerad-
ing as Jews and defi-
nitely are not Jewish. In
one case, a young Ameri-
can player who doesn't
know about the regula-
tions is being palmed off
as a Jewish performer. It

so happens that he has a
typically sounding
Jewish name. He was
brought over by an Is-
raeli who resides in the
United States and serves
as a scout for a top flight
Israeli team.
It seems that this player
will not be permitted to per-
form for his club in the Is-
rael National League but
will be permitted to partici-
pate in international con-
tests against clubs from
Spain, Italy, and Switzer-
land.
This case is only one of
several which exists in Is-
rael. If this were an isolated
situation perhaps one might
be inclined to overlook the
situation but the time has
come when this should be
brought out into the open
and if the Israel Basketball
Federation doesn't take
steps then we may, ulti-
mately, see so many falsifi-
cations of names and falsifi-
cation of records that in a
matter of a decade half of
the Israel National League
could conceivably be of
non-Jewish origin.
The situation pertaining
to the influx of non-Jewish
players has become so acute
that the sports committee of
the Knesset is sending a
member to the United
States in order to investi-
gate the whole problem.
There is a strong likelihood
that the Knesset's represen-
tative may hire a private
detective to check, in ad-
vance, on every American
from here on in who goes to
Israel as a professed Jew, in
order to play basketball.

PARIS — A prisoner ex-
change involving Soviet
Andrei
dissidents
Sakharov,
Anatoly
Shcharansky and Yuri
Orlov has been proposed by
the French government, ac-
cording to a report in Le
Monde last weekend.
The newspaper reported
that France was prepared to
swap Gunter Guillaume, a
former East German Air
Force general arrested on
espionage charges last year
for the three dissidents.
French diplomatic sources
indicate that the offer had
been made and was pre-
sumably under considera-
tion by East German and
Soviet authorities.
