Bowling

Continued from preceding page

the best competition I ever had
in a league."
Klinger is a 1957 graduate
of the Wayne State University
School of Mortuary Science
and also studied at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. He says
the Ira Kaufman Chapel has
been very good about his bowl-
ing sideline, saying nary a
word when Klinger gets calls
at the funeral home about
bowling problems.
The President of Klinger's
league is Harold Daien of Oak
Park, while Mark Sperling of
Farmington Hills is the secre-
tary. Sperling also is on the
International Association's
board of governors and is its
assistant executive secretary.
Three men from Detroit who
have been very active in B'nai
B'rith bowling over the years
include Paul Kales, Marvin
Dictor and Al Brook, all past
presidents of the Interna-
tional, whose executive secre-
tary, Harry Cohen of Delray
Beach, Fla. is a former De-
troiter. President now of the
International B'nai B'rith
Bowling Association is Har-
vey Rosenbaum of Denver.
Another ex-Detroiter, Harold
Weiss of Bel Air, Md., is trea-
surer.
Klinger says some leagues
around the country use the
B'nai B'rith name, but their
leagues are not affiliated with
the IBBBA.
Despite the popularity of
B'nai B'rith bowling and the
large size of the Eddie Jacob-
son league, "we're down to
about half of what we were 15
years ago," Klinger says. "All
B'nai B'rith bowling leagues
are down. At one time we had
15,000 bowlers. Now we have
around 7,000."
It's not so much that bowl-
ing has fallen out of favor, he
says, but there are so many
other things to do. But Klinger
is proud of the fact his league
has prospered in the face of
Monday night football on TV
— "and I have a lot of active
football watchers."
Fran says there are 18
women's B'nai B'rith leagues
in metropolitan Detroit. She
has been president of the B'nai
B'rith women's bowling organ-
ization in Detroit and has been
national tournament chair-
person.
The Klingers' children are
Gary, 21, Michael, 18, and
Andrea, 13, and Gary may be
the heir-apparent to his
father's passion for bowling.
Last year, Gary led the Jacob-
son league with a 182 average.
This year, Mark's nephew,
Steve Fine, and Frank Sil-
verman share the lead with

184s. Both are under 25 years
old.
"The perfect example of our
success is our son," Mark says
proudly. ". . . He started with
me long before he was 18. He
started in my league as a cour-
tesy bowler at 16. When he
turned 18 he brought his
friends in with him, and his
relatives. Right now my
league is probably 70 percent
men under 30 . years old. It's
just a great blend."
Klinger says he is "just
about ready to turn the league
secretary job over to either my
son or my nephew. After 10
years of really being active I'm
looking now to kind of ease off.
I don't know how the
presidency of the Interna-
tional Association is going to
affect my time.
"He (Gary) has the ability.
He has the dedication. He has
the enjoyment. When I go out
of town he'll put out the (pair-
ings) sheet for me. He does a
good job."
Klinger says he wishes his
father, the late Dr. Manuel A.
Klinger, who was a dentist,
was around to see his son's re-
cent success with B'nai B'rith
bowling.
"I never could beat my dad,"
Marks says. "He wasn't a bet-
ter bowler, but he did a better
job of psyching me out."
Gary, though, beats his dad
at bowling but Mark doesn't
seem to mind.
"I wanted to wait long
enough to have my son bowl,"
he says. "Now I want to hold
off long enough to have my
grandson bowl. NI can hold off
another 20-25 years I'll have
three generations bowling ."
And, if he's lucky, it'll be
Gary who spends all the time
down the basement doing the
paperwork.

PLO Exhibit
Closes Bir Zeit

Washington (JTA) — Israeli
authorities closed Bir Zeit Uni-
versity last weekend as punish-
ment for an anti-Israel exhibit or-
ganized by the students. The ex-
hibit was to take place last Satur-
day on two campuses of the uni-
versity, to mark the founding of
the Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine, led by Nayef
Hawatmeh.
An army search on Friday night
led to the discovery of scores of
books callng for rebellion in the
West Bank and containing in-
structions on how to prepare
bombs.
Thirty-seven people preparing
the exhibit were arrested. An-
other 12 students were arrested in
their homes.
