Israel Admitted to 1952 Olympic Games; Ski Team to Compete in United States

Israel has been admitted to the 1952 Olympic Games by the Olympic executive committee, according to a Reuters report here. The admission of the Jewish state was subject to the condition that all athletes, regardless of race or religion, be allowed to compete in Israel sporting events, to which Israel agreed in a letter to the committee.

(The first official international ski team from Israel will be entered in the Alpine events of the 1950 world ski championships at Aspen, Colorado, next February, it was reported today.)
