not only “thq older people” are
playing the game, but the young
er sets are becoming very much
interested . . .
Here might be some answer
there to those who are worried
about the loss of the terrific
basketball players we witnessed
in the last generation locally, and
have not seen observed in the
present crop of teen-agers ... Os
course the sport of bowling has
also hold, and requires a
great deal of time and practice
for perfect achievements . . .
Be it not said that basketball
is losing out altogether for we
should be reminded that with the
erection of the Jewish Center
gym more and more boys and
girls are being re-directed to
what seemed to be a sport par
ticularly loved by the Jews of
the South ... Os special note
will be the announcement of a
game between the Savannah
Jewish Alliance and the Jewish
Center team . . .
The tilt will begin at 3:30 in
the Center auditorium . . . The
Center team, which was beaten
last year by the Savannah con
tenders, is boasting ten straight
wins locally, and hopes to be the
victor in this year’s contest . . .
If they do they will be taking
over one of Savannah’s strongest
five ... (The preliminary game
will begin at 2:30 with the
A.Z.A.’s and the Esquire boys
opening) ...

This paragraph might 'be called: These
Changing Times . . . Perhaps these are
not important changes I have noted, but
somebody might find them significant if
they want to take the trouble ... For
instance —the trend toward golf by our
people . . . We thought it was the open
ing of a Country Club in Jax that made
the direction toward the links game
popular here . . . However, now we note
that in Savannah (that oh, so conserva
tive, but interesting city) the Jewish
Alliance is offering a course in golf for
adults . . . We might go on to say that
game constitutes a rivalry which
began long before I migrated to
the South . . . That was twenty
five years ago when the local Y
was in full force, situated as it
was in the center of a predomi
nately Jewish neighborhood . . .
Following the demise of the Y it
was The Southern Jewish Weekly
which sponsored the local Jewish
basketball team, and each year
journeyed to Savannah to take on
the Alliance and usually a
trouncing . . . Today, further add
ing to this commentary on these
changing times, it should be
noted that the members of the
once S. J. W. basketball team still
stick together—for a regular
weekly poker game . . .

Going through a Bar-Mitzvah
stage with our son and his friends
I have been given the opportunity
of witnessing other modes of
change . . . Today the Bar-Mitz
vah is *no longer a fountain pen
... He is either a shirt or wallet.
I know of one Bar-Mitzvah,
who needing a fountain pen for
school use, decided to wait until
his mitzvah (and its presents) be
cause he saw no need of a useless
expenditure on his part . . . Fol
lowing a deluge of 35 shirts and
ten wallets among other things
he had to go out and buy his own
fountain pen . . .

The Jewish Temple was the
scene Monday night of a joint
Hadassah-Z.O.A. meeting featur
ing a program by the local Young
Judaea Clubs . . . Directed by
Mrs. Irving Bruckner, the boys
and girls presented a series of
skits depicting the Four Point
Program of the Young Zionist
groups ... It was a colorful and
varied program in which children
from nine to seventeen took part,
and certainly showed the effort
that the city director and the
Young Judaean leaders have put
forth . . .

(Copyright, 1954, Jewish Telegraphic

The Jewish War Veterans or
ganization, whose members par
ticipated in defeating the Nazis
on the battlefields of Europe, has
prevented a former Nazi from re
gaining his American citizenship
at a time when some consider it
“unfashionable” to oppose ex-Hit
lerites and the remilitarization of
Germany. The JWV registered
such a strong objection to a Sen
ate bill which would have re
stored citizenship to Alfred Theo
dor Ex that the Bill, otherwise
destined for passage, has now
been pigeon-holed.
Mr. Ex served from 1929 in the
Friends of New Germany and
later in the “Amerika Deutscher
Volksbund”—the Nazi Bund of
Fritz Kuhn. He held the rank of
“Werbeleiter” until 1937 when he
went to Germany and assumed
German citizenship. In 1946 he
was found guilty of making false
statements to a U. S. vice-consul
in Berlin about his past Nazi
affiliations. Mr. Ex’s own reason
for joining the Bund was that it
gave him “a chance to attend
closed meetings in which the race
question, in which I was very
interested, was discussed.

Israel, forecast liberalization of
the Israel economy, including
steps to abolish foreign currency
controls. He asserted that the re
formation of the coalition govern
ment in Israel, with the Mapai
and the General Zionists as major
partners, was based on a continu
ation and stepping-up of the pol
icy of economic freedom and en
couragement of private enterprise
and private investment.
Mr. Torczyner called upon
American businessmen to become
more aware of Israel’s economic
potentialities, and urged the
Chamber to take the lead in pro
moting investment in and tour
ism to Israel. B. Rosen, a mem
ber of the Tel Aviv Chamber of
Commerce, spoke of Israel’s prog
ress in foreign' trade and de
