I 1 r .e • e te S. k'S lg .lr a- at er .q- 21, at ch be Monday, December 12, 1960 THE TRANSCRIPT 3 JEWS m By HAROLD U. RIBALOW (Copyright, 1960, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) BASEBALL EXPANSION This is the hot-stove season, so it is perfectly all right for a writer to discuss baseball, even though we are still in the football and basketball season and we are all involved, in one way or another in a new Kennedy Ad- ministration in the sense that we have been f, ollowing Kennedy's selections for his "team." But'back to baseball: with the American and National Leagues both expanding, the name of Hank Greenberg keeps popping up in all diamond conversation, While still a vice-president and stockholder in the Chicago White Sox, Hank made it clear, almost as soon as AL expansion was announced, that he wanted to head a club in Los Angeles. He talked with all sorts of officials of the Coli- seum and the minor league clubs in the area and made it plain that he expected to get out of the White Sox situation and become a leader in the new Los Angeles club. It was obvious ttaat no matter how long the panning phase took, Greenberg would be part and parcel of a new team. Green- berg feels that he was confident a team could be organized for the 1961 season, but he wasn't sure how long it would take to get together a squad good enough to win a pennant. There is no question that Hank Greenberg, one of the great sluggers of all time, and perhaps the finest Jewish player in the history of the game (with A1 Rosen running i him a close second, or neck-and-neck), was going to go down in the annals of the,sport as a major Jewish execu- tive as well. RONNIE COHEN As every Sports fan knows, there are very .few Jewish boxers still around, ,although Alphonse Ha]imi returned to the wars with great success some months ago. But one of the pretty good ones was young Ronnie Cohen, a hard- hitting welterweight who seemed to have the punch to carry him far. But Cohen revealed a rather weak chin when he got in against good opposition• Early in Novem- ber, Cohen met one Eddie Jordan, and while the fight was an exciting one, it ended with Cohen on ,the floor for the third tire in the second round. In the first round, Cohen rushed Jordan, opened with a left to the body, a right and left to the head, and Jordan went down. Obviously, Cohen still had power in his blows. Jordan remained on the canvas until the count of eight. He lnanaged to rise as the knockdown timekeeper reached 10. ":[ know he was counted out," Cohen later insisted. But Jordan managed to keep Cohen away from him as the (Continued on Page 4) ,Hanukah Greetings i Greethtgs From Hanukah Greetings Mrs. Sianley (Effie)Smith G;IL'S k of FLOWERS by E.S.
