Monday, January 23, 1961 THE TRANSCRIPT 3 Capital SpotHg-h-t By MILTON FRIEDMAN (Copyright, 1961, Jewish Telegrapiuc Agency, Inc.) WASHINGTON--This month's Presidential inaugura- tion recalls the role of Jews in the inaugural events of 1789 when George Washington, the first President, was sworn ,in. An appropriate comment on the first inaugural was made by Mordecai Sheftall, a Savannah, Ga., Jew. He pre- dicted that "an entire new scene will open itself" to Jews in the new nation. Sheftall's words proved prophetic. Subsequent ratification of the Federal Constitution pro- duced a country in which Jewish citizens enjoyed full equality for the first time since the Imperial Roman edict of 212 C.E. The Sheftall vision was further implemented in recent weeks when President-elect Kennedy named two Jews to serve simultaneously in the Cabinet. A search of dusty records revealed that Manuel Jo- sephson, president of the Philadelphia Mikveh Israel con- gregation, urged major Jewish communities to unite in a 'oint congratulatory message to President Washington. '?tdladelphia was joined by New York; Richmond, Va., and other cities. Separate congratulations were dispatched by Savannah, Ga., and Newport, R.I. The most famous of the congratulatory letters was the Newport greeting. It was signed by Moses Seixas, leader of Newport's Yeshuat Israel congregation.

TWO  C--arged I With Murder of Jews BERLIN (JTA) --Two for- mer officers of the Nazi SS, the Hitler Elite Guard, were arrest- ed here on charges of partici- pating in the mass murder of about 30,000 Jews in the Soviet Union b'etween July 1941 and April" 1942. The men are ex.Colonel Os- wald Schaefer and former SS Major Wilhelm Wiebens. West Berlin police who arrested the men here said they were living in West Germany until now un- der their own names. Both men are accused of having been members of a special SS group, known as Unit No. Nine. which employees on the grounds of race, creed or color; and our in- quiries confirm that representa- tives of all faiths and creeds are on the staff and management of Ortho. The facts show the com- pany's employment policies in- clude safeguards against dis- criminatiml. The Ortho policy recognizes the importance of re- ligious holidays of the various faiths. "Our inquiries furtlmr show that the company enoys an ex- cellent reputation in the field of intergroup relations In our opinion, its policy on religious observance is near ideal."

RIBALOW (Copyright. 1961, Jewish Telegraphic Agency Inc) HOLMAN AND THE "LITTLE MAN" Nat Holman is one of the giants of basketball, and prob- ably the greatest Jewish personality the game has eve known. Now that he has retired from CCNY, he is trav- eling around the world "selling" the hoop sport in the Fa East >Iolman himself was one of the original Celtics, a member of the fabulous five. He was a fine shot and %0 ,outstanding floor man. Needless to say, }le was tall for his time bu for modern basketball, he'd be too small. Thus it is interesting that in Tokyo he came up with an unusual plan. He asked that the Olympics have twc sets of basketball teams, one for small men and one foI men over six feet tall. Holman said, "Small men as a unit can't possibly earn- pete agains the big men. Lack of strength as well a height rules out the little guy." When Holman coached the CCNY teams, he also had the problem of handling short men who had to face up tc huge players of Middle West or West Coast teams. Nat' ability to convey the principles of ball-handIing was ob- vious, but the game soon were to the huge men and ball- handling lost out to the game of rebounding and high- umoing. Perhaps there is somethin in Holmmfs sugges- i6n,although it is unlikely anything will ever come of it. STATE DEPT.
