New York — Would you
wager that nobody knows the
name of the timekeeper at a
sports event?
Don't make that bet with
basketball players. Anyone
who has played at Madison
Square Garden knows that
Nat "Feets" Broudy was the
man behind the clock.
As the Garden's keeper of
time for 32 years, Nat "Feets"
Broudy made a name for
himself from his sideline seat.
And on March, 8, sports fans
and basketball greats will
pay tribute to the legendary
clockkeeper, recognizing his
dedication to the spirit of
sports with the first Peace
Through Sports Award of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University at a celebration
at the New York Hilton.
The American Friends will
also establish the Nat "Feets"
Broudy Fund for Peace
Through Sports, which will
underwrite an annual TAU
symposium to develop sports
programs promoting greater
communication among the
Jewish, Moslem and Chris-

tian populations of the region.
Broudy is retired and his
old, taped-up stopwatch is
displayed at the Basketball
Hall of Fame in Springfield,
Mass.

"It's fitting that Feets
Broudy is the first recipient of
the sports award," said U.S.
Sen. Bill Bradley, former New
York Knickerbocker. "Feets
has placed first in so many
ways — first in commitment,
first in fairness, first in loyal-
ty, first in honesty and most
important, first in communi-
ty spirit."
Bradley enjoyed a pre-game
towel ritual with Feets each
time he played at the Garden
as a Knick.
Bradley is serving as
honorary chairman of the
event, along with David
Stern, commissioner of the
National Basketball Associa-
tion. Committee chairpeople
are Oscar Robertson, former
Cincinnati great; Al
Schreiber, president of Royal
Farms; and Ernie Grunfeld,
Knicks assistant coach.

Columbia U. Is Tense
As 'Prof. Griff' Speaks

New York (JTA) — Tension
between blacks and Jews
ran high at Columbia Uni-
versity last week as Richard
Griffin, known as "Professor
Griff" of the rap group
Public Enemy, spoke on
campus at the invitation of
the Black Student Organiza-
tion.
Griffin's appearance
prompted angry protests
from Jewish students and
others, who pointed out his
previous anti-Semitic
statements as well as the
group's most recent song,
"Welcome to the Terror-
dome," which contains anti-
Semitic lyrics.
The Black Student Organ-
ization said it had invited
Griffin, as a leader among
black youth, to speak about
black education as part of a
Black history program.
Jewish students and other
members of the community
protested, declaring the in-
vitation offensive and inap-
propriate.
The Board of Managers,
the student group which
oversees funding for student
activities, withdrew $1,000
it had pledged to the Black
Student Organization, and

faculty members publicly
condemned the invitation.
On the evening of Griffin's
lecture, black and Jewish
factions engaged in counter-
demonstrations and
shouting matches across
police barricades set up out-
side Altschul Auditorium,
where Griffin was appear-
ing.
The university's Council of
Jewish Organizations staged
a "Rally Against Hatred and
Prejudice." Speakers included
campus rabbis, Jewish
students, a Palestinian rights
activist and the dean of Col-
umbia College, Jack Green-
berg, a longtime attorney for
the NAACP.
Outside the auditorium,
some 15 members of the
Jewish Defense Organiza-
tion stood behind a police
line, shouting, "Black-white
yes, bigotry no! Public
Enemy's got to go!"

The black demonstrators
were carrying signs saying
"White America Must Stop
Telling Black America Who
Its Leaders Are" while chan-
ting, "No more Zionists, no
more lies! Black leadership
is on the rise!"
