Hamburg Lets Jews Play on Its Billiard Team; Not Enough Pure Aryans

Rather than abandon the annual billiards match between Hamburg and the Dutch town of Groningen, an annual custom for many years, because there are not enough good Aryan players in Hamburg, two Jews have been added to the team. The Jewish billiard players are Dr. Meyer and Herr Fleischman. Under ordinary circumstances no Jews would have been allowed to represent the city.
