international organization.
A side-benefit has been
Israel's increased stature
among the world's tennis-
playing powers — it recently
defeated the People's Republic
of China in Davis Cup com-
petition and an ITC graduate,
Amos Mansdorf, is a ranking
professional player. Further-
more, another ITC member,
recently arrived Soviet player
Anna Smashnova, won the
junior title (14-under) in the
French Open a few weeks ago.
Mr. Brode, who becomes
ITC board chairman later this
year, declined to give the
amount raised, saying only
"it was about the same as last
year," and that Detroit con-
tinues to be among the ITC's
best donor-cities.
"We thought at the beginn-
ing of the season that this
would not be a good year for
us," said Mr. Brode, but since
the Persian Gulf war "there's
been a dramatic change
toward Israel. People seem to
be more enthusiastic about
giving. We are up 20 percent
in contributions over last year
throughout the United
Mrs. Rabin, visiting several
United States and Canadian
cities to help boost ITC, spoke
of tennis past and present
during her Detroit stopover.
The wife of Israel's former
prime minister recalled how,
when her husband was chief
of staff in the days before the
Six-Day War, she would sneak
out of the house with her ten-
nis racquet to an adjacent
court for some tension-
relieving tennis.
She couldn't help worrying,
however, "what will the
neighbors think" about her
pursuit at such a tense time.
The neighbors rejoiced, she
learned later. "When we saw
you with your tennis rac-
quet," they told her, "we
relaxed because we knew
another day was going to go
by without war."
Jumping to the present, she
told the gathering of the im-
pact the 11 tennis centers are
having on both the newly ar-
rived Soviet and Ethiopian
"The centers are taking the
kids from the harsh realities
of the resettlement ulpanim
to beauty and love in the mid-
dle of a very difficult period in
their young lives," said Mrs.
Rabin, who as Israel's first
lady in 1977 cut the ribbon
opening the first tennis
center, at Ramat Hasharon.
"At the centers, they can
feel relaxed, free, at home.
Your contributions to ITC are
providing a beam of sunshine
into a tough, hard-working
society," she said. ❑
