Bjgji. Irwin Rosee, Harry Markson, And the writer were chatting in the Twentieth Century Sporting Club offices the morning of the Fox-Levine fight. We do not recall how the matter came up but it gave us a laugh when Markson told how the Actor's Temple on 47th St. took on the aspect of Stillman’s Gym the other night. Markson, who says Kaddish, was there as per his daily custom. But on this particular day Sam Taub, he of radio fight broadcasting fame, was there for Yahrzeit ser vices. Just to make sure that he had a minyon Sam imported sev eral of the boys from Stillman’s Gym to make up the necessary quorum. Surprisingly Taub con ducted the services himself and did a bang-up job of it. When it came time to recite Maariv, the rabbi suggested, that since Taub davened Minchah for the members present, Markson should lead the late evening service. In keeping with the boxing motif Markson led the congregation during Ma ariv. Evidently the boys on the boxing beat haven’t forgotten their alephbeth. Later that night before the main Garden go, the writer was deep in conversation with Sid Feder of the Associated Press, and Harry Men del, former six-day bike impre sario, in front of the Garden main lobby fountain.

Cannon began to tell several tall tales about Jackson which are priceless but can never be written for several reasons. Jackson then told about the time he let Cannon “Ghost” an article for him for one of the lar ger magazines. When the check came through it was made out in Cannon’s name. Jimmy showed the paper to Mushky at one of the fights and told him to get the cash for it at the box office. Mushky got the money and hauled Cannon into a dark corner in back of the arena to split the dough. As Mush ky counted in the dark and slipped bills into his hands, Cannon wail ed, “Come on out into the front and pay me off in the light like everybody gets paid.” Needless to say Jackson continued to pay off in the dark. Cannon doesn’t know how Mushky did it but the amount coming to him was all there. Mushky is so used to seeing money passed in the dark that the ab sence of light makes little differ ence to him.

Holmes Joining Christian church leaders of various denominations in ask ing for support for a Jewish Pal estine, Dr. John Holmes, Minister of the Community Church of New York and Chairman of the Board of the Civil Liberties Union, in a statement to the Zionist conven tion declared that the Zionist cause is a matter of honor for mankind. “England, America and the world stand pledged to the establishment and protection of the Jewish homeland.” The liberal Christian leader, emphasizing that the American people are commit ted both by conviction and also by official Government action to the Zionist cause, urged that “there must be no faltering, no compro mise, no betrayal at this critical hour. What has been promised must be fulfilled. America must take the lead in sustaining Israel.” IIIIIIIIIIIIDIIIIIIIIIIIII the SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY U.N.

The J.N.F. also provided land for founding 24 colonies in the three years and defrayed a considerable part of the expenses of their es tablishment, he said. Referring to the setting up of 12 new set tlements in the Negev last Oct ober, in a dawn-to-dusk period, he called it a “world proclaimed pioneering saga.” Silver Asks U.S. to Take Lead in Finding Palestine Solution Addressing the opening session of the conference last night, Dr. Silver called on the United States to take the lead in finding a just solution of the Palestine problem. He said that Secretary of State George C. Marshall’s statement to a group of Congressional leaders earlier this week, to the effect that the U. S. traditional policy on Palestine had not changed, was “gratifying,” but called for a more positive declaration of policy to allay apprehensions concerning the American Government’s pos ition. Describing, the. government's attitude at this time as “tight lip ped,” and charging that no one was sure of where it stood, he declared that “If America contin ues to remain in Britain’s corner” all recomendations of the United Nations will be “utterly doomed.” He expressed fear that Britain and the U. S. would come up with a new version of the British plan to “federalize” Palestine into auton omous areas under a British-dom inated central authority. He also voiced his opposition to partition.
