A Jewish grandmother from
Brooklyn soon will attempt to
swim the English channel. That’s
right. It says “grandmother.” Mrs.
Betty Cohn, who is 51 years old
but still a fit swimmer, has left
for England where she will at
tempt to make history by the
crossing. She’s been training hard
for the big day, which should
come in the near future . . .
While we’re on the subject of
swimming, a New Yorker has
been causing quite a sensation in
Canada, where he’s been attend
ing McGill University, Tall,
blonde Irwin Kopin, who’s 22
years old, has once again won the
Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic
Union breaststroke championship,
a title which he has held for the
past three years. He also holds
the Dominion 400-yard record in
addition to other marks too mum
erous to mention. Kopin has been
accepted as a medical student at
McGill this fall. He has been a
biochemistry student and former
ly was at City College of New
York, where he was on the var
sity tank squad . . .
Plans have been completed for
the grand send-off that Irv
“Moon” Mondschein will get be

a guest of the Israeli Government,

We were all set to sit down and

White Sox for the fine perform

Hoever, Saul doesn’t appear to
be the kind of a guy who will let
well enough alone. Before we
could get around to patting him
on the back for one job well done,
he turned around and performed
another feat. This time he did it
in 10 innings—and won.
Saul came through in the cru
cial series with the New York
Yankees at Chicago’s home park
to give his club a much-needed
lift in the see-saw American
League pennant race. The right
hander from Brooklyn pitched
the White Sox to a 4-3 victory
which put the club in second
place and only two percentage
points behind the league-leading
Red Sox. Rogovin has been a
valuable asset to the Sox ever
since he was traded from Detroit,
where he had been teamed up
with Catcher Joe Ginsberg. He
has shaped up as one of the key

Bartbsy C. Crum, President of SCRIP TO ISRAEL (2nd from right), sells Mayor Vincent R.
Impellitteri jf New York the first SCRIP TO ISRAEL gift certificate, as members of the SCRIP
organization look on. Mayor Impellitteri sent the SCRIP gift certificate to Mayor S. Z. Shragai
of Jerusalem, who will redeem it for food to be distributed to the needy new immigrants resid
ing in the Holy City.
SCRIP TO ISRAEL is an American company, which facilitates the sending of food, cloth
ing, and other vital necessities to Israel. With the agreement of the State of Israel, they have

The National Basketball Asso

Syracuse, N. Y., re-elected Mau
rice Podoloff president for the
coming year, and also re-named
Haskell Cohen as publicity direc
tor. Cohen was for many years
Sports Editor of the Jewish Tele
graphic Agency. In addition the
league took a bold step that is
designed to give the little guy on
the basketball court a better
chance. It revised the rules to in
stitute the 12-foot lane instead of
the six-foot lane.
