1111= I The death of baseball star Herb Gorman in the middle of a game at San Diego, California, was one of the most unusual occurrences that ever took place on the dia mond. In other sports, such as football or boxing, where there is rough body contact, it is not uncommon for a player to die in the course of the event or shortly afterward. However, the tragedy that over took Gorman was as unique as it was sad. Herb, who had been with the St. Louis Cards for a very short time in 1952, was play ing with San Diego in a game with Hollywood in the Pacific Coast League. The 27-year-old outfielder had already helped his club to winning the game by driving in a run with one of his two doubles. Herb called for help from the outfield, saying he wasn’t feeling FOR SALE AT ALL Daylight Grocery Stores BEST WISHES • INSURANCE • REAL ESTATE • MORTGAGE LOANS • PROPERTY MANAGEMENT George Carlyon & Co.

He was helped off the field into the dressing rooms, then rushed to a hospital where he died. Doc tors said it was a heart attack brought on by a blood clot that might have been gathering for some time. Herb had not been ill and there were no symptoms. His wife re ported that he had complained of feeling tired that day. But there was no real indication anything was wrong. His teammates immediately asked that the second game of the double-header be called off in respect to Herb following the an nouncement of his death. Clar ence Rowland, president of the league who was watching the game, said afterward: “Herb Gor man was an outstanding character and a credit to the game.

The case of Ruth is not a solitary one. Not so long ago, I was told of a man whose son had married a non-Jew who embraced Judaism. Said the fa ther-in-law: “My daughter-in law seems to be making good Jews of the whole family.” The convert is often more zealous than the old-timer. Intermarriage does not always work so well, however. There are differences in groups which after the honeymoon is over may be come disturbing. In others, the very differences may be an at traction. In the case of Ruth, one infers that she has not so much embraced a single person or creed but a people. Shevuoth of course has nothing to do with intermarriage and the reason the Book of Ruth is read is because of the idyllic picture of bucolic life which it presents. Shevuoth is a harvest festival and no book of the Bible presents such a finely sketched portrait of Israel living on the soil as that one. Severed from the land, on the harvest festival of Shevuoth, the Jew could recall his ancient agricultural background by read ing the story of Boaz in the field. Jews are gelling gack lo Ihe land again—especially in Israel. Dr. Abraham Biran, the Governor of Jerusalem, who has jusl ar rived in Ihe country for a lecture tour for the Israel bond organiza tion, told me the other day that he regarded the transformation of the Jew into a farmer in Israel as perhaps the greatest achieve ment of the young stale. I don’t think that we Jews have ever been as divorced from the land as we have been represented. As late as the 12th century, the great Rashi was a farmer. I re member that when I was a child in a small Southern town, many of the Jews, my own family among them, kept cows and chickens. I used to lead our cows to pasture. Who can say that Jews who have to go scouting for pine trees to cover their booths, who recite prayers for dew and other crop necessities, were ever really divorced from the soil. We just took a vacation to—learn a little Gemara.
