Hank Greenberg has developed
into an executive with a good
eye for the box office end of base*
ball. It is almost as sharp as the
eye he used to have for those
pitches he belted into the stands
in the days when he was Detroit's
number one slugger.
Greenberg, now general man
ager of the Cleveland Indians, has
been supporting a plan to have
inter-league contests. Teams in
the American league would play
teams from the National loop.
This would be a part of the regu
lar season’s schedule.
Os course, such an arrangement
would be a radical departure from
the traditional practices we have
come to know in the nation's fav
orite sport. As a result, it doesn't
look as if there is much chance
for this innovation at present.
There is no question but that
inter-league contests would stim
ulate new interest among baseball
fans. Greenberg appears con
vinced of this. The excitement
generated by the yearly All-Star
classic would seem to bear out
this view. If thousands of fans
would pay to see an All-Star
game, it would be logical to ex
pect that they would be enthusi
astic about seeing teams from the
different leagues compete against
each other.
The question of the World
Series would present a problem.
It is obvious that if teams from
each league played each other
throughout the season, the World
Series would not have the posi
tion it now enjoys. But perhaps
another resourceful plan would
be introduced.

Agency, -Inc.)
From time to time this column
has mentioned tennis star Ber
nard Bartzen as a man to watch.
Comments have covered a period
ranging from the days when he
was just beginning to be noticed
through the days when he had
become someone to reckon with.
Bartzen now has really earned
a round of plaudits. In his first
important triumph on the courts,
Bartzen defeated none other than
Tony Trabert in the National Clay
Court tournament. The competi
tion was held in Chicago. Bartzen
came out on top by a score of
6-2, 4-6, 6-0 and 6-2.
Trabert is considered the num
ber one player in the United
States. Bartzen, who is 26 years
old, apparently isn’t content with
knocking off the number one
player. In another tourney, Bart
zen also disposed of the country’s
number two player, Vic Seixas.
The score was 7-5, 6-4, and 6-2.
When not playing tennis as an
amateur, Bartzen is a sporting
goods salesman. His home is in
San Angelo, Texas . . .
*****
Fight fans in the country have
been getting a look at a promis
ing Israeli boxer. He is 18-year
old David Oved, who is a Macca
bian title holder.
Oved, a featherweight, recently
made a good showing in Brooklyn
by winning a technical knockout
over a New Jersey fighter. The
victory was important to his ca
reer, since it opened the door for
further matches.
The development of sports in
Israel has raised possibilities of
having more Israeli athletes make
appearances in the United States.
They would undoubtedly be well
received, judging by their per
formances in the Maccabiah and
at the Olympic games.

The
Jewish
Quiz
Box
By Rabbi Samuel J. Fox
QUESTION: What are the "nine
days?"
ANSWER: “The “nine days” is
the colloquial name given to the
first nine days of the Hebrew
month of Av occuring this year
from July 31st through August
Bth. These days are set aside as
days if intense national mourning
and traditional Jews shun eating
drinking wine, marriages
or swimming or any form of en
tertainment during these nine
days.
*****
QUESTION: Why are these nine
days so mournful?
ANSWER: The Talmud states
that upon the entry of the month
of Av one is to minimuze the
pleasures of life. This is because
these nine days led up to the
fateful date of the Ninth of Av
which commemorated the de
struction of the Temple. Hence,
from the very beginning of the
month through the actual anni
versary of the destruction a
mourning period is observed.
*****
QUESTION: Why is eating
meat prohibited during this per
iod?
ANSWER: Meat was considered
a luxury and a means of enjoy
ment. In one place the Talmud
writes that there is no enjoyment
without meat. Since matters of
physical enjoyment were to be
minimized, meat ;was removed
from the diet during these nine
days. Another reason is advanced
by some sources which has a di
rect bearing upon meat and that
is that it was during this period
that the daily sacrifices were
stopped in the Temple of Jeru
salem.
Since the Jewish home is repre
sentative of the Temple and its
table a facsimile of the holy altar,
the meat upon the table is com
pared to the animals which were
sacrificed upon the altar. Not hav
ing meat during these days re
minds one of the fact that the
altar in the Temple was deprived
of the sacrifices during this per
iod. The same might apply to the
wine since in some cases wine
too was offered at the altar.
Originally, it seems that such
a period of abstinence from meat
and wine was observed for three
weeks and not merely the last
nine days as we have it. Ac
cording to some sources it was
the women of Israel who seemed
to have been credited with show
ing the example of making their
domestic habits show signs of
mourning. Later, it seems to have
spread to all and seems to have
been limited generally to nine
days instead of three weeks which
would have extended it from the
fast of the Seventeenth of Tam
muz until the Ninth of Av. Inas
far as marriages are. concerned,
however, the three weeks period
was left in its original state, and
marriages are still prohibited for
the full-three week period.

Israel's future fighters against the insect-borne diseases which
afflict men, animals and crops are represented among these Hebrew
University zoology students. Israel, which annually spends approxi
mately one and one-half million dollars for the importation of insec
ticides, is vitally concerned with the search by Hebrew University
scientists for new-techniques and processes which will make possible
the manufacture in Israel of increasing amounts of its annual insec
ticide needs.
