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.

The hour was approaching mid
night and all the stands were half
empty at Madison Square Garden
during the running of the Millrose
Games. 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

wear glasses. Eventually, the
school secured contact lenses for
him. 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.
