JEWS IN SPORTS By IIAROLD U. RIBALOW (Copyright. 19fil. Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.) Paula Su.ssman00Weds Sanford Rose been the founding father of the American Basketball League. A year and a half ago, Saperstein, a dynamic and imaginative man, sold his stock in the Philadelphia War- riors (Wilt Chamberlain started to play for pay when he joined the Globetrotters, you will recall). And Saperstein established the new circuit. It has two dvisions. The East- ern has teams in Pittsburgh, Washington, Chicago and Cleveland. The Western has clubs in Kansas City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and hear this! Hawaii. SAPERSTEIN'S THINKING Abe Saperstein has devoted his career to the hoop sports and is not a later-comer to the game. He knows talent and he is capable of whipping up interest in players. The Globetroters have gone everywhere--including Israel --and delighted basketball fans all over the world. Saper- stein has been responsible for this remarkable team, and he is by no means a babe in the woods in competing with the NBA. In an interview with Murray Robinson of the New York I Journal-American, Abe said, "I picked out the cities and I I decided to stay out of New York because the only place I to play here is in Madison Square Garden and the Garden / owns the Knicks." Obviously the /(nicks weren't happy / with the formation of the new league, and Saperstein, as its Commissioner, isn't too popular in New York among t Garden officials. Still, Saperstein is not giving up. ] Theyve thrown a lot of rocks at us, he says, but they haven't stopped us. Organizing a pro basketball league' is easier than organizing a third major league in baseball, or expanding the majors. This is so because the colleges turn Out first-rate players in far larger quantities than the pros can use them." Saperstein is an optimist about the game. He insists that "... you can have ten pro leagues right now--and all would be about equal in playing strength. Players go right from college into the pros. There are no minors as in baseball. Our league has 96 players on the eight rosters and only 20 of them are former NBA men, Cleveland and San Francisco had 57 and 67 players respectively on their rosters before they cut." As the season progresses, we shall discover if Saper- tein is right; that is, if the caliber of play in his league is up to the quality displayed in the NBA. Will bis players do as well as Oscar Roberson and Jerry West and the dozens Of authentic stars of pro basketball? It is an interesting question and we shah follow the progress of Abe-Saperstein's American Basketball League. A NEW BASKETBALL LEAGUE Although professional basketball players are better than the collegeians, it has only been in the past decade that the pro game has caught on as a popular, crowd- pleasing sport. Years ago, when the Original Celtics played for pay, they didn't make the same impact as the college teams. Now, however, the Boston Celtics, for example, do a lot better in every respect than the college squads in the New England area. And even the New York Knicker- --Ackerman Pirate bockers who are in the lower rung of the hop ladder MRS. SANFORD S. ROSE get more publicity than most New York college quintets.

QUESTION: Why is it custo- mary to rub some of the wine over the eye lids, after dousing the candle in it? T r ANSWER: Froln the passage in the I salms which is read when doing this, the motive can be gleaned It is-customary to say. "The Commandment of G-d, is pro'e, enlightening the eyes" (Psahns 1.9:9) when doing this. This shows that the observance of the Ahnighty's command- ments brings enlightenment. It is also taken to mean that man, upon setting out to begin his week's work, should be careful to use his eyes properly so as to evaluate the situations that confront him in their proper Be sure your insurance plans will meet today's higher costs on home furnishings and personal property.
