(Mr. Cohen’s column this week is being guested by Bobby Sand,
coach of the U. S. Israeli basketball team, which has just returned
from South America after a basketball tour of that country to raise
funds in order to finance the sending of a team to Israel for the Jew
ish Olympics in Tel Aviv. This was written immediately upon Mr.
Sand’s arrival in New York from Brazil.)
*****
The United States Israeli team
and I got off the plane after a
40-hour trip from the States to
South America, washed, and went
right out to the ball park where
we took on the San Polista All-
Stars and beat them. This team
later beat Bowling Green by a
score of 46-44. Three of the mem
bers of the San Polista All-Stars
are on the Brazilian Olympic
team, to give an idea of how
strong they are. After this, our
first game, the papers went wild
over the “brilliant Eastern ball
handling” and the crowds were
just as enthusiastic. This recep
tion was typical of the ovations
we received everywhere we
played in South America.
On our first Saturday there, we
went to Santos, where they are
building what will be one of the
most beautiful gymnasiums in the
world. We beat the Santos club
56-38. The next Monday, we gave
a half-hour exhibition of Eastern
basketball in the Pacembu Stad

ium in San Paulo. Then, Tuesday,
we went on a tour into the inter
ior of the continent, and played
in Rio Clara. This city, inciden
tally, is one of the three oldest
cities in the world. We beat their
team by a score of 62-36. Wednes
day we played in Campinas and
beat their All-Stars 66-49. Cam
pinas has Jewish colonies which
are the most industrious and en
ergetic group in Brazil. Here we
drew over 100,000 cruzeiros.
Thursday, we were to play in
Sorrucobba, but unfortunately,
the game didn’t work out as sche
duled and the team traveled back
to Sao Paulo where the most
thrilling game the people there
had ever seen took place. We beat
the best team in tne entire state
of Sao Paulo, the Corinthians, by
a score of 37-36. It was a slim
margin. Even the Sao Paulo
newspapers commented on the
fact that the calls of the officials
were extremely one-sided in
favor of their Corinthians team.
Nevertheless, the bAlliant play of
our boys was able to carry them
through to win.
On Saturday, the boys went to
Rio as the guests of the Brazilian
Confederation of Basketball. The
Confederation is a semi-Govern
ment agency which is more or
less the equivalent of the Ama
teur Athletic Union in the United
States. In Rio, where the boys
spent their holidays, they were
treated wonderfully by the peo
ple who invited them into their
homes for Rosh Hashonah. They
also attended Synagogue in Rio,
which is definitely one of the
more beautiful cities in the
world. The boys were also invited
to many grand receptions, and
will always remember this par
ticular part of the trip where the
hospitality of the people was un
limited.
We played again on the Thurs-

day after Rosh Hashonah against
a team called the Carioca All-
Stars, whom we defeated 49-45.
We had a 13-point lead going into
the last two minutes, but we
played easy, thus tightening the
final score. On Saturday, we
played the Flamingo club, the
best team in all Brazil. We beat
them 77-59, and in this contest,
Roman scored 37 points which set
a new Brazilian scoring record.
On Sunday, the last game of the
trip, and the first game ever
played between 2 American clubs
on Brazilian soil, we beat Bowl
ing Green 65-59. This game was
considered the greatest ever seen
in that city. We had leads of 13,
11, and 10 throughout the game.
Roman scored 24 points in that
game, and by this time, had ac
quired the title of the “human
point-making machine.”
Before leaving, the Brazilian
Confederation of Basketball pre
sented us with a trophy on which
is stated that we were the best
team ever to perform on Brazil
ian soil. The trophy is a beautiful
piece of work in the shape of a
bird with outspread wings, as if
in flight, on an onyx base. This
lovely gift we added to the many
banners we were presented with
wherever we played.
The boys all agree that they
had a wonderful experience and
hope to go back again some time..
We hoped that the teams in
Brazil will develop to the point
where they might make a tour
through the United States in the
future.

identification cards will no longer
carry a description of the bearer’s

Identification of bearers of the
compulsory identification cards
by their religion has long been
protested as discriminatory and
undemocratic, particularly by the
sole Jewish member of the Turk

it into accord with the spirit of

Israel is at U. N. Assembly
as "Provisional Member" Due
to Credentials Mix-Up
FLUSHING MEADOW, (JTA)
—lsrael is sitting as a provisional
member only of the current ses
sion of the United Nations Gen
eral Assembly due to a mix-up
in credentials.
When the Israel delegation cre
dentials were examined by the
Credentials Committee, it was
found that they did not comply
with the rules in that they were
in the form of a telegram from
Abba Eban, permanent Israel
delegate, instead of in a notifica
tion from the head of state or
Foreign Minister. The committee
voted to seat the delegation pro
visionally until this could be rec
tified. Israel Foreign Minister
Moshe Sharett, who is heading
the Israel delegation, promised to
deal with the matter at once.
