  • Description

    A PARTY OF RUSSIAN GIANTS ARRIVED IN NEW YORK FROM MOSCOW YESTERDAY (11/23/59) AND THEY ARE INTENT AT BEATING AMERICANS AT THEIR OWN GAME.

    THE RUSSIANS ARE MEMBERS OF MEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM THAT WILL PLAY SIX GAMES IN THE UNITED STATES AS PART OF A STATE DEPARTMENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM.

    LAST YEAR AN AMERICAN TEAM VISITING RUSSIA WON SIX STRAIGHT. A RUSSIAN WOMEN'S TEAM WILL ALSO MAKE THE TOUR WHICH OPENS IN NEW YORK'S MADISON SQUARE GARDEN THURSDAY NIGHT. SOCCER IS THE BIG GAME IN RUSSIA. BUT BASKETBALL IS GAINING FAVOUR.
