Senator Asks Truman To Demand British Lift Military Rule In Palestine WASHINGTON, (JTA) ln a speech to the Senate this week, Senator Warren G. Magnuson, Washington Democrat, asked President Truman to call upon the British Government to "revoke all military orders, restore civil ad ministration and remove all re strictions upon civil liberties" m Palestine. At the same time, Magnuson said, the President should call upon the Irgun Zvai Leumi and Stern Gang to cease all terrorist activ ities. Magnuson suggested that the President also warn the Brit ish that “unless within a stated time large-scale immigration” of displaced Jews in Europe to Pal estine is undertaken, the United States will start transporting such persons from Europe to Palestine under the protection of the Ameri can flag. Magnuson said he had a right to do this under the Anglo- American Convention of 1924. MRS. ROOSEVELT HEADS COMMITTEE TO DRAFT BILL OF HUMAN RIGHTS LAKE SUCCESS, (JTA)—The U. N. Commission on Human Rights authorized its chairman, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, in cooperation with the Commission’s vice chairman and rapporteru, to draft an international bill of rights. In drawing up the bill, the drart ing committee can cooperate with other members of the commission and with experts named by their respective governments. No pro vision was made for participation by non-governmental bodies in the drafting of the bill. Mrs. Roose velt said, however, that the ques tion of relations between the Commission and non-governmental organizations will be discussed be fore the conclusion of this session.

The last relay race had been run over a half hour ago and only the high jumpers were left in the center of the floor. The typewriters and Western Union keys were ticking away in the mezzanine when somebody re marked, “Hey, look guys, they are still jumping. Wonder what’s cooking in this event?” This should give you an idea of how interesting the average high jump trials are to the sports writers. We were just finishing writing our stint as the clock showed twenty minutes to twelve. Nor mally, we can cover the average track meet, write our story and be out of the Garden by 11:15. This night, however, Irving Mondschein was in the high jump pit testing his skill against the best available leapers in the East. The bar was raised to 6’5” with five contestants, including Mondschein, left. The N. Y. U. flash cleared the bar on his second try. John Vislocky of the New York A. C. also cleared at this height. Johnson, Albritton and Kashuba were eliminated at this point. The judges pushed the stick up another Inch to 6’6”. Mondschein was going to try for the highest jump of his career. He tipped the bar on his first leap. Vislocky also failed in his first attempt. While the minutes ticked away the two athletes cleared safely on their next attempts. This time the standard was raised to 6’7”. Mond schein was really batting in the big league now. He tried first and just nicked the stick dislodg ing it from its resting place. Vis locky also knocked the bar down. Mondschein cleared. Vislocky cleared. Vislocky tried two more times and couldn’t make the grade. Mondschein was the winner. The record for the Millrose games was 6’7”-%”. The judges asked Irving if he would like to try at 6’7”-%”. He acquiesced. You probably know by this time that Mondschein es tablished a new Millrose Games re cord in the high jump. Emil Von Elling, coach at N. Y. U., is highly enthusiastic over Mondschein’s rapid improvement in the high jump. Von Elling is grooming Irving, the National dec lathon champion, for the 1948 Olympics. Right now Mondschein is more proficient in the sprints, the broad jump and the high jump than any previous American dec lathon man. He is picking up rap idly in the weights division, throw ing the shot put, discus, and jave lin farther and farther every day. His coach feels that by the time the next Olympic Games roll a round the Jewish lad will just about compile the greatest number of points for declathon competi tion. It seems that Mr. Mondschein is a natural athlete. Perhaps the reader will recall that we wrote about Irving’s first taste of foot ball this past fall when he reported for N. Y. U.’s grid team. At the time he had never played the sport. Then, too, he was handicapped by the fact that he was forced to BEST WISHES Pierce Prescription Shop TPt 115l 15 Laura St *eei Hemming Park _ .

His progress was so rapid that after the traditional Fordhan N. Y. U. game, authorities award ed him the most valuable piay er trophy. It seems that Irving has away of earning these most valuable trophies. As was customary the writers were polled during the closing events of the Millrose Games for the evening’s most val uable performer. Long before the high jump, ballots were turned in and for the most part Gil Dodds mile winner, Barney Ewell and Harrison Dillard who tied existing world indoor records for the 60 yard sprint and high hurdle events, received the majority of votes. Some of the veteran writers includ ing Jim Jennings of the Daily Mirror filed their stories, instruct ed the wireless -operators to flash the winner of the broad jump to their offices, and departed. After Mondschein set a new record, re maining writers decided that the Tt)oys should ballot over again and consider Irving’s splendid perform ance. As of this writing no de cision has been made via the ballot box. But it seems possible that, when the final tabulation is in, Irving Mondschein will head the Millrose Game participants. 61VE SUPPUES (41?
