There’s a lot of news popping on
the basketball front. In the B.A.A.
pro loop preparing for the coming
season the following events have
transpired in the past few' days:
The New’ York Knickerbockers,
badly in need of big men, have
purchased 6’ 7” Irv Rothenburg
from the St. Louis Bombers. Irv
is a former L.I.U. player who has
seen action with several B.A.A.
teams during the past two sea
sons. He is a cousin of Red Wolfe
who used to perform so nobly for
the Philadelphia Hebrews not too
long ago.
Former N.Y.U. ace Sid Tanen
baum refuses to sign with the
New York Knicks and has been

warned by Ned Irish that he will
be traded or kept idle all year. The
Baltimore Bullets are interested
in Sid but have not offered much
in the way of player material for
a trade. The Knicks will gladly
trade the Jewish hoopster but are
not giving him up for a song.
Irv Torgoff has become dissatis
fied with his contract at Baltimore
and hasn’t been practicing with
the Bullets. Irv asked permission
to go home to New York for Rosh
Hashanah and never reported back
to the Baltimore five. He had a
carry-over contract from Wash
ington which was obtained by the
Bullets when they traded for Tor
gy-
It looks as though Lionel Mal
amed has definitely made the
Rochester Royal squad. Against
the Minneapolis Lakers in a recent
exhibition game the former City
College digger tossed in fourteen
points. A night later he dumped
three baskets against the same
quintet. Manager Les Harrison
is very much pleased with the boy
and feels that despite Lionel’s lack
of height he will make a go of
B.A.A. ball because of his hustle
and fight.
Phil Farbham will probably
make the Philly Warrior squad al
though he is being pushed hard by
others at this writing. Eddie Gott
lieb reports that Farbham has
looked very well in the practice
sessions at Hershey, Pa. If he
makes the grade it will be a .1000
batting average for Nat Holman.
Two of his cagers, Malamed and
Farbham, graduated from last
winter’s club and both appear
capable of making the real big
time In basketball circles.

M Wt.
Among the passengers on board the historic General Black, first ship
to come to U. S. with DPs under.the DP Law of 1948, were Menachem
Oppenheim, 31, his wife, Malka, 30, and their one-year-old son, who was
born in a DP camp. The family comes to this country under the spon
sorship of HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). Oppenheim was in
front of a Nazi firing squad when the U. S. Army came over the hill
and routed the executioners. Shown above are his wife and son being
greeted on the ship by (left to right), General Thomas L. Harrold, Ugo
Carusi, chief of the President’s Commission on Displaced Persons, and
Lewis Neikrug, HIAS European Director. The Oppenheims will live in
Syracuse, N. Y. with Philip Roth, brother of Mrs. Oppenheim.
