THE BASLE PROGRAM
The Zionist movement, as it is knovin today, began in the year
1897, when a Congress was called by Dr. Theodor Herzl in Basle,
Switzerland, to consider the possibility of founding a home in Pales-
tine for the Jewish people.
At that Congress the following platform (known since as the
Basle Program) was adopted: "Zionism strives to create for the Jew-
ish people a publicly recognized, legally secured home in Palestine."
This still remains the platform of the Zionist Movement.
Until the coming of Theodor Herdl, Zi~onism was not a national
policy of the Jewish people; it did not demand, from the world at
large, "a publicly recognized, legally secured home in Palestine." Jews
simply went to Palestine and settled there. But Zionism demanded
of the world that it recognize the right of the Jews to re-establish
their home in Palestine, and that it legalize this right by international
This is what gave to modern Zionism its distinctive character.
THE BALFOUR DECLARATION
Not since the year 70, when the Jewish people were dispersed
throughout the world, did Jewish hopes run so high as it did on No-
vember 2, 1917, when Arthur James Balfour, the foreign minister of
Great Britain, issued a declaration in behalf of the British Govern-
ment addressed to Lord Rothschild, a Jew and a member of the House
This declaration said that the British Government viewed with
favor "the establishment in Pagestine of a national home for the Jew-
ish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achieve-
ment of this object .."
The World War was still on in 1917 and this declaration inspired
many Jewish youths to join the British army in order to help wrest
Palestine from the oppressive rule of the Turks.
During the World War the governments of France and Belgium
issued statements confirming their approval of the Balfour declara-
tion. At the World Peace Conference of Paris, the leaders of World
Zionism urged again before the representatives of the nations the
claims of the Jewish people to a national home in Palestine. At the
conference of the Allied Powers at San Remo, the contents of the Bal-
four declaration were incorporated in an international agreement.
In June, 1922, the Government of the United States, through a
resolution, adopted unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed
by President Harding, also gave its approval to the Balfour declara-
THE PALESTINE MANDATE
Finally, iiI July, 1922, the League of Nations, influenced to a large
extent by the expressed 63ish of America, declared Great Britain the
mandatory (or trustee) over Palestine for 25 years, on condition that
Great Britain "facilitate the building in Palestine of t-he Jewish Na-
tional Home." Fifty-6ne nations were thgn represented on the League
of Nations. Together with America, which gave its approval sepa-
rately, they constituted the great bulk of the civilized world, which
thus acknowledged the right of the Jewish people to build a National
Home in Palestine.
In this fashion the National Home for the Jewish people in Pal-
estine became "publicly recognized and.legally secured."
Having received the mandate ov~r Palestine from the League of
Nations, England appointed Sir Herbert Samuel, a well-known British
Jew, as the first High "Commissioner or Governor of Palestine. The
words, "Palestine, Eretz Yisrael" (The Land of Israel) were printed
in Hebrew )on the stamps and coins of the country, and in English
CHURCHILL WHITE PAPER
In order to explain the meaning of the Balfour declaration, the
British Government, in 1922, issued an official declaration known as
the Churchill White Paper, named after Winston Churchill, in charge
of the British Colonial Office then, setting forth the following~policy:
"Firstly, the Majesty's Government reaffirms the declaration of
November, 1917, which is not susceptible to change. Secondly, a Jew-
ish National Home will be founded in Palestine. The Jewish people
will be in Palestine as of right and not on sufferance. But the 1Maj-
esty's Government have no aim in view as that Palestine should be-
come Ar Jewish as England is English. Thirdly, nor do the Majesty's
Government contemplate the disappearance or subordmnation of the
Arab population, language or culture. Fourthly, the status of all citi-
zens of Palestine will be Palestinian; no section of the population will

(This is the fifth of a series
of articles on Hadassah and
those people who have worked to
tanakeo ganiezat oes am wor'o
the Jewish good).
In 1929, 10,500 patients were
treated in the hospitals, and 80,~-
000 new cases were cared for in
the urban and rural dispensaries*
Other Jewish hospitals received
laboratory and consulting service
from the Hadessah Medical Or-
ganization. The department of
radiology, which is the only first
class laboratory in the Near East,
serves the entire country, as does
the pathological laboratory, which
is well equipped and supervised by
a highly qualified pathologist. In-
itial steps toward affiliation be-
tween the Hadassah Medical Or-
ganization and the Hebrew Uni-
versity have been taken. Public
health courses for physicians, in
which the Hadassah staff partici-
pated as~ instructors, were given
at the university last year.
Hadassah and Kuppat Holim,
the sick benefits of the Jewish La-
bor Federation, constitute the Zi-
onist health service of Palestine.
From 1921 to 1928, inclusive, Ha-
dassah spent about $4,500,000 in
Palestine, and the Kuppat Holim
about $1,250,000, or a total of well
over $5,000,000, while the govern-
ment of Palestine has spent less
than $4,000,000 for health pur.
poses during the same period, of
which perhaps one per cent went
to the Jewish health work.
In addition to raising funds for
its Palestinian work, Hadassah
sends thousands of pieces of lin-
ens and garments to its own in-
stitutions in Palestine and to
twenty -five institutions outside
its supervision. These supplies
are valued at about $65,000 a year.
The materials are distributed in
Palestine through the Histadruth
Nashim Ibriot (Palestine ~Wom-
en's Organization). There are 800
sewing groups in this country, the
members of which prepare thou-
sands of garments.
A work which Hadassah only
began five years ago and which is
thriving splendidly is participa-
tion in the Jewish National Fund,
the Zionist (agency for redeem-
ing the land of Palestine. Through
the Jewish National Fund Council
of Hadassah, the Senior chapters
and junior units are this year
raising $70,000 toward the pur-
chase of 2,800 dunams of land in
the vicinity of Haifa Bay.
The following amounts were
expended for Palestinian activities

"SINKING SHIP RABBIS"
When first it became known that
the Soviet Government had decid-
ed to adopt an anti-religious atti-
tudei the entire world became out-
raged. Many there were who felt
that every government in the
world should take Steps to pre-
vent it. Indignation ran wild.
When a missionary would say,
"The Jewish religion is wrong,
come to us," the Jewish people
condemned every move of the
apostate. When radicalism at one
time began to talk that religion
was ebbing away and losing
ground, we laughed at them and
even sneered at them.

WHAT THERAOERLLD OWES i
We Gentiles owe our life to Is-
rael. It is Israel who brought us
the message that God is One, and )
that God is a just and righteous l
God, and demands righteousness
of His children, and demands
nothing else. It is Israel who, in
bringing us the Divine Law, has
laid the foundation of liberty. It
is Israel who had the first free in-
stitutions the world ever saw. It
is Israel who has brought us our
Bibl e, our prophet s, our apostle s.
When sometimes our own unchris-
tian prejudices flame out against
the Jewish people, let us remem-
ber that all that we have and all
that we are, we owe, under God,
to what Judaism has given us.
THE JEWISH POOR
The Kingdom of God--the rab-
bis held--is inconsistent with a
state of social misery. They were
not satisfied with feeding the
poor. Their great ideal was not
to allow a man to be poor, not to
allow him to come down into the
depths of poverty. They say, "Try
to prevent it by teaching him a
trade. Try all methods before you
permit him to become an object of
charity,.. which must degrade him,
tender as your dealings with him
may be." -S. Schechter.
The Educated and the
True knowledge and culture who
strive to obtain,
The older they grow the more
wisdom they gain;
But those to whom knowledge and
culture are foes,
As older each gets the more fool-
ish he grows.
-From the Talmud.

For the first time since school

TH PRINCESS AND
Itabbi Joshua, the son of Han-
av'iah, was one of those men whose
minds are far more beautiu tan
their bodies. He was so dark that
people often took him for a black-
smith, and so plain as almost to
frighten children. Yet his great
learning, wit and wisdom had
earned for him not only the love
and respect of the people, but even
the favor of the Roman Emperor
Trajan. Being often at court, one
of the princesses taunted him on
account of his homely appearance.
"LHow comes it," she asked, "that
such glorious wisdom is enclosed
in so mean a vessel "
The rabbi, not being dismayed,
requested her to tell him in what
sort of vessels her father kept his
wine. "Why, in earthen vessels, to
be sure," replied the princess.
"Oh!" exclaimed the witty rabbi,
"this is what ordinary peop e use;
an emperor's wine ought to ,
kept in more precious vessels.
The princess, thinking him in ear-
nest, ordered a quantity of wine
to be emptied out of the earthen
jars into gold and silver vessels;
biut, to her great surprise, found
it, in a very short time, sour and
unfit to drink.
"V:ery fine advice, indeed, Josh-
ua, hast thou given me!" said the
princess, the next time she saw
him; "do you know the wine is
sour and spoiled ?" "Thou art then
cnicd sad the rabbi "that
sin eeeps beast in plain and mean
vessels. It is even so with wis-
dom.'' "But," continued the prin-
cess, "I know many persons who
are both wise and handsome.,,
"True," replied the sage, "but they
would, most ~probably, be still
wiser were they less handsome."

The way of Life
By BRUCE BARTON
It had been a very pleasant
crossing of the ocean and all of
cswo ad ce a as~sengers had
As the big ship moved slowly to
her pier we stood on the prome-
nade deck looking into the mass
of upturned faces, each hoping to
discover a relative or friend.
Suddenly a woman beside me
began to wave her handkerchief,
and, from the pier, an old lady
"That's my aunt," the woman
confided to me. "Dear old Aunt
Julia. My husband sent me a wire-
less that he is sick in bed with
gripp e. My mother is inthe Sout h.
I was afraid there would be no one
to meet me.
"But I might have known. Aunt
Julia never fails. Blessed old maid,
she mothers us all. How could we
ever live without her!"
On the pier I was introduced to
Aunt Julia. A trim little figure of
a woman bubbling over with un-
selfishness, ladened with an extra
coat and a pair of overshoes--just
in case her loymng miece might
happen to be cold.
Having just come from France,
and feeling very continental, I
bent over and kissed her hand.
She blushed like a girl.
"You mustn't try to flatter an
old lady," she said. But it was no
attempt at flattery; it was an act
of reverence. She is a member of
the noblest clans in the world.
I had been reading, on the boat,
a book about the Bronte family.
Mr. Bronte was a self-centered
country parson, who wore out his
wife by making her the mother of
six children in six years. Left with
the motherless brood on his hands,
he cast around for help, and
thought of his wife's maiden- sis-
ter. She, poor thing, was living
peacefully in a lovely little town,
with an income sufficient to pro-
vide comfortably for her simple
wants. There was every selfish
reason why she should stay just
where she was.
Yet, at his summons, she did
not hesitate. She cast aside every
personal consideration, came down
to the bleak parsonage in its ugly
part of England and proceeded,
for the rest of her life, to devote
herself to those children.
How many millions of similar
instances have there been in his-
tory! What a priceless wealth of
affection is poured out on the
other people's children by aunts
and nurses and cooks and teach-
ers to whom Fate gives no chil-
dren of their own! How could hu-
manity conduct its existence with-
out them ?
I thought of these things as I
watched Aunt Julia wrap up her
niece and hurry away. I lifted my
hat reverently and waved them

Meeting his friend on the street,
he said, "Say, George, how about
that life insurance of mine ? Don't
I get it ? "
"Well," said the agent, "you
know, in our company it is the cus-
tom for the physician, after he
examines a man, to take a chart
of the human body, and he punches
a hole in it wherever he finds any-
"Oh, is that so, G~eorge? Did
the doctor do that in my case ?"
"Be sure did; and he took the
chart home and put it on the play-
er piano and it played 'Nearer My
God to Thee!' "
"Traveled all over the world,
eh? Went up the Rhine, I sup-
pose ? "
"Climbed it to the top.,,
