II 201. The writer has just returned from a meeting of a basketball committee which was set up this day to try and secure funds for an American Jewish team to go to the Maccabiad which will be held in Israel the latter part of September and early October. As of this moment, the United States Maccabiah Committee is in the hope of securing funds to enable the track team, recently selected, to go overseas. Inas much as basketball is the world’s No. 1 spectator sport, several men active in the basketball world importuned Col. Harry Henschel to see if it were possi ble to raise enough money for a hoop squad. Maurice Podoliff, president of the National Basketball Associa tion, and Charles Green, promi nent New York tobacco man ac tive in Jewish charities, were se lected as co-chairman of the bas ketball committee which will en deavor to secure the money nec essary to back a Jewish five from the United States.

After Labor Day it is proposed that the committee run a barn storming tour featuring the ball players who will comprise the United States Jewish Olympic team. These players will be split up into two squads and will play in the largest arenas along the Eastern seaboard. It is hoped that by these two means it will be possible to raise the $15,000 re quired to equip and transport the team. It appears likely that the team will be comprised of the first five players on the Borough Park Y. M. H. A. unit which won the Jewish Welfare Board national championship conducted at Pitts burgh last spring. In addition, a college five, including Ed Ro man, Herb Cohen, and A1 Roth of City College, Art Goldberg of Duquesne, and Abe Becker, cap tain-elect of New York Univer sity will go along. Bobby Sand, assistant coach at City College, has been delegated as the coach of this proposed American squad. In addition to the proposed barnstorming tour, appeals will be made through various minor sources for donations. Any read er interested in contributing to the fund may mail his donation to this column and make the con tribution payable to the Basket ball Committee for the Maccabi ah. We in turn will turn the do nations over to the Treasurer of the committee. ** * * Hy Sisserman, one of the pop ular young basketball officals in the East is working in Puerto Ri co at the present time. The gov ernment there is extremely bas ketball-conscious and asked Hy to come down at their expense. Hy has uncovered several likely playing prospects and is in the process of trying to place these boys in American colleges where their game can be further devel oped. In all likelihood, the baby faced Sisserman will become a part-time referee in the National Basketball Association here in the States, indicating that the well-liked New Yorker is on the way up. Hy appears to be no older than 19, but he actually is in his early twenties. THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY PLAIN TALK • (Continued from Pago One) would be disappointed in him if, as a member of the human fam ily, he did not feel proud of the story of Israel, too. Proud of the victory of an ideal over cruel odds; proud of fellow human-beings who out of vestiges of existence established a good life in a good land proud of the noble example of liberty under law that has been estab lished in the new land; proud of the compassion that has embrac ed within its borders all the op pressed among Jews; proud of the construction for peace that devoted hands have built there. Paul would be less the brother of man if he could not rejoice in all this, less the American if he could not applaud a people that, like the Americans, by their blood sanctified their country and by thejr ideals and hands built it. He will be less the Jew if out of Israel he does not dis cover a fulfillment of ultimate justice that is of his religion. Dear lady, please be of courag eous heart for my grandchildren and the future of your own child ren as Jews. What we need fear most for our children is not Is rael but the world and the way it seems to be going. Let’s worry, more about that. Under the shadow of the ulti mate tragedy of the world it seems silly for any of us, as Jews, to fear how we may look as Americans in the presence of other Jews who are of Israel; or how our children may look. It's like an absurd lady an xious as to how she will look to her neighbors if she doesn't primp up before she runs out of her burning house; she stops to paint her lips amid the fire. I hope that Paul and my other grandsons, Jan and Rickey, will come through the dangers of the current world to their fulfillment as Americans and long later I will tell them: "When you were very young that there were those who were worried' about the American fu ture of you and other Jewish children. There was the Ameri can Council for Judaism." “What’s that?” they will ask. "It no longer exists. It was a symptom of fears of some Jews; it was the tremor of some Jews. They were afraid of Israel and what it might mean to their standing and yours —as Jews in America. Even when the world seemed about to explode they were afraid of themselves in that way. “But your old man wasn’t a fraid. I figured that I would be a kind of heel to shy away from the Israeli because I might be misunderstood if I were caught admiring them and giving some aid.” "And how did the American Council finally go out of busi ness?" the boys will inquire. “Well, that was just one of those things. Some things are forgotten even before they die.” I know, dear lady, that you don't like my answer to your let ter. I should tell you that I have never been a Zionist and. indeed, at one moment I was a member of the American Council for Ju daism. I wished for a bi-na tional state of Jews and Arabs in Palestine. But I find nothing to be afraid in the magnificence of the State of Israel in being.

For borscht good borscht derives its particularly pleas ing taste from the beet itself. This is especially important to re member today, when most women buy their borscht all prepared and ready to serve. Only fresh picked, selected beets can give borscht its rich, natural flavor. A borscht which is sharp or sour to begin with, food experts point put, usually contains excessive amounts of “cover-up” ingredients to disguise the taste (or lack of taste) of cold-storage or inferior b Ce ts» Additional tartness or sweet ness, they maintain, should be added at the table, with your own pure seasonings —a dash of lemon, a bit of sugar, a pinch of salt, depending entirely on how .you, yourself prefer it. But ai rways, it is essential to start with v a borscht that gives you the fine, »natural flavor of fresh-picked, fresh-cooked garden beets.

As each fresh crop is brought in for cooking, it is immediately tested, in line with the B. Manis-, chewitz Company’s rigid and specifications of quality. Once the beets pass these pre-\ liminary tests, they are washed, steamed, peeled and trimmed with the utmost care then cut into crisp, tender segments and cooked under ideal home-kitchen condi tions, to bring out the rich, re freshing flavor of the beets. And as each batch of borscht comes from the kettle, back it goes to the home-kitchen laboratory first, to determine its sugar and mineral content (Manischewitz; Borscht is an excellent source of j iron, copper and other body-build- 1 ing minerals), and then, to a bat tery of expert food tasters, who! must pass on every batch ofl borscht. The final step packaging is accomplished by sealing Man-: ischewitz Borscht in sterilized vacuum jars, to retain all its wholesome quality, all its delight-' ful taste until you take it home from your grocer’s to serve with meals or as a refreshing drink.
