Henri Bodenheimer, noted French industrialist and president of the French ORT, He also spoke at similar con. ferences in Warsaw, Moscow and Berlin. His address before the Berlin ORT committee marks one of t the few appearances of an American Jewish leader before a German organization.

It maintains 202 agricultural colonies and trades schools in these countries. Recently the organization has opened an agricultural colony in Villeneuve, outside of Paris, and trades schools in Paris for the benefit of German-Jewish refugees. A group of refugees are also being trained at a colony in Kovno. Sven Hedin Says He Is Jewish Prague (WNS)—Taking cognizance of rumors alleging him to be an anti-Semite. Sven Hedin, the world-famous Swedish explorer, issued a statement to the press here In which he categorically denied the rumors and pointed out that he was himself descended from Jews. Hedin admitted that he believed in the Nazi theories, but declared that his Jewish ancestry ought to dispose of the rumors against him. The noted explorer was recently received by Hitler. Hedin'a admission of his Jewish origin confirms reports recently published in the Jewish press that he is a direct descendant of a Swedish Jew by the name of Abraham Brody, who in the eighteenth century embraced Christianity and changed his name to John Kristian Berlin. It was Kristian Gessel Berlin, a grandson of Brody, who became the maternal grandfather of Sven Hedin. It is said that disasters set us thinking. Only a great shock, it seems, releases the real generosities and the real sympathies. No doubt, wiseacres shrug their shoulders and urge all sorts of profound reasons why the severe damages of the recent hurricane should not have been. But the point is that, while nature is sometimes at its worst, human nature is ofttimes at its worst. And the lesson of it all is not that we may justify or accuse anyone, or the "One," but that we should realize that after all, when men face the real life they are near to one another and help one another. True, if a hurricane is the triumph of brute nature—the love and the pity and the quick rush to rescue and the tremor of sympathy all over the city is the triumph of man. Many disasters have gone across the earth, but we forget them easily. Providence is a terrible disciplinarian and its pupils learn so sluggishly. We learn surely, though slowly. If this recent disaster set you thinking, may I be permitted as a rabbi to take advantage of your faculties and reason with you. You know, a statesman has been de-irilied as a man who uses his tongue to hide his heart. The average person uses labels and slogans to avoid the painful process of thinking. It is much easier to -ay pompously, "I am a Democrat" or "I am a Republican" or "I am a Mason or an Elk," than to explain the reasons for one's relation-hip or one's attitude towards great governmental problems or sociological ideals. So it is much easier to describe one's -elf as Reform, or Orthodox, Or Conservative than to analyze just what one is, hopes for, and is actually doing. I.ahds are therefore popular. They save thought. 1 do not care whether you be a nominal, racial or religious Jew. Remember that in the eyes of the world, we are all .lew-! As a result of labels we argue and quibble childishly without making any progress in Jewish endeavors. The editor of the Jewish Floridian, last week, excoriated the attitude of Jewish fraternities at the university in Gainesville. Even if it be true, we adults have no right to complain about our Jewish college youth. Look at conditions in .Miami! We find concrete evidences of such childish traits. Instead of uniting as to a city-wide plan about Amornon-participation in the Olympic games at Berlin, or boy,. oU of German made goods—we j ewa differ as to methods of procedure, thereby hindering the prog,t such projects. Would that I had the space to discuss the hollowness of modern professions among our Jews, the continuing danger from savage egotism, the Ottawa (WNS)—A final checkup on the returns from the Canadian national election shows that three and not two Jews, as reported earlier, were elected to parlia. ment. As previously reported, Samuel W. Jacobs in Montreal and Samuel Factor in Toronto retained their seats and the final tally shows that A. A. Heaps of Winnipeg was also re-elected after a nip and tuck contest with Tim Buck, leader of the Communist party. From the Jewish point of view the election demonstrated two things: first, that Canadian Jews have no use for Communism, and second, that anti-Semitism has no mass appeal in the Dominion. The fact that Jacobs polled 13,000 votes in the Cartier division of Quebec province, a district with a large Jewish electorate, while opposed by a Communist candidate who was a Jew, showed that Communism has no hold among Canadian Jewry. Jacobs' victory also proved the weakness of anti-Semitism when he swamped Saluste Lavery, anti-Semitic candidate, Throughout the country anti-Semitic candidates were defeated and the failure of the new Reconstructionist party to elect more than one member is attributed to the fact that the party's leader, H. H. Stevens, bad taken up with the anti-Semites. A curious sidelight was provided in Ottawa, where Jean Tissot, convicted of criminal libel against A. J. Freiman, president of the Canadian Zionist organization, was hopelessly beaten. Strictly Confidential unweakened necessity of Jewish solidarity. Suffice for mo to slate that here in Miami and elsewhere a much needed lesson of Jewish manliness is essential at this juncture of a false refinement, and an unprincipled Jewish ambition for social status. Does not our silence and indifference give the sanction of consent to all the scoundrels and rascals we tolerate as company? Are we not afraid of the naked truth as of something rude and refined? Have we not dressed her image up in so many circumlocutions and equivocations that we flee from her when she appears unveiled in the beauty of her purity? We claim the title of truth's guardian, we Jews! On what kind of terms are we living with candor and frankness in our social relationships'.' Not enough that petty business considerations and effeminate society habits keep hack fiom our lips the Strong words we have almost unlearned to use, but we are trembling with redoubled apprehensions when it is our own foibles that are to be pointed out, dragged to the light, overwhelmed with righteous condemnation. It is the Gentile's judgment we are warned against affecting, for it is our own morbid sensitiveness, our own petted conceits around which we want drawn the protecting fence of a polite silence. To my mind, no greater in(Continued on Page 8) Inside Stuff Is there any possible connection between General Charles H. Sherrill's pro-Olympic propaganda and his lifelong ambition to be United States ambassador to Germany? Any chance the general ever had to represent Uncle Sam in Berlin is now gone forever Helene Mayer won't admit it, but the real reason that she finally accepted the invitation to represent Germany in the 1030 Olympics was the terrific pressure brought to bear on her by her mother, who is a pure Aryan ... It is curious that Helena's brother, who is also a crack swordsman, has not been asked to fence for Germany Incidentally, Miss Mayer has been deluged with letters both congratulating her and bitterly criticizing her for accepting that invitation High government officials in Washington have received at least 1 1,000,000 letters from various parts 'of the country demanding the elimination of Jews from public I office. Personalia Congratulations are in order for Morris Margulies, popular secretary of the Zionist Organization of America, who recently eloped No one knew about it until Morris* absence from the last meeting of the Zionist Administrative Committee attracted attention Since he never misses a meeting, his little secret quickly came to light Maurice J. Karp, one of the American members of the Jewish Agency Executive, is creating considerable talk in Zionist circles by his mysterious mission to Biro Bidjan The tour of the American Ballet was cancelled suddenly because its manager, Alexander Mayerovitch, went insane and had to be put in a straitjacket The guests at that party that Motty Eitingon, fur magnate, threw for Max Reinhardt, could easily have Imagined themselves at a League of Nations meeting because almost every known longuage was spoken at the blowout. Sports Chaff Just so you won't be surprised, we're telling you now that a group of prominent American athletes, all famous for their achievements in one particular sport, are readying a hot statement on the Olympic situation Buddy Myer, second baseman of the Washington Senators and American League batting champion, will be wearing Yankee livery next season Milt Galatzer, Cleveland outfielder, is a bang-up cartoonist and is now branching out into oil painting Max Stone, the new amateur lightweight champion of Victoria, Australia, is a former Fast Sider Jules Seligson, former intercollegiate tennis king, is now fielding a mean pen in selling insurance Believe it or not, but Joe Jacobs, who manages Max Schmeling, Hitler's favorite boxer, is a second cousin of Eric Seelig, the GermanJewish boxer who was stripped of his titles by Hitler.

Genesis, Chapter VI. Verses 9-12. Inclusive Offhand it would appear that to say of a man that he conducts himself "within the law" is to compliment the fellow, but this is not necessarily BO, as we Bhall soon sec from an analysis of the expression. If one is really good and honorable, law-abiding and just, we should say that of him; but, when we speak of him as keeping "within the law," it is intended to convey the thought that he violates many morai Standards, without actually breaking the law. That is no compliment. The rabbis who interpreted Scripture and who Sought to find every possible moral lesson contained therein for the instruction and improvement of man: who scrutinized every verse and expression, that they might glean all the noble thoughts and miss nol one of the inspired and divine teachings of the Holy Hook; who saw in the Bible not merely a narrative, a biography of a people, but a code of living, a wise, though oftimes veiled, guidance for the children of men: these sages were not satisfied with a superficial reading of the text: they analyzed it. From this careful and conscientious analysis and study, fl wish faith and its high moral teachings were evolved, Though the generation of the flood was wi.ked and sinful in many ways; •.hough it has been recorded as lewd and immoral, idolatrous and murderous, the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's hack." the sin that hastened the end of that iniquitous generation, is given as ". and the earth was filled with violence," according to the eleventh verse of the sixth chapter of Genesis. The rabbis have n the following interpretation of this expression. But, we first • have B few definitions in order to understand what is to follow. In giving legal definition to the llchrw word "gazail." the word for robbery, the rabbis have classified it as the "taking from another of an article worth a "p'rutah or more." A "p'rutah" is a coin of little value. The Hebrew word for violence is "chomos," and it is defined as the taking from another of an article worth less than a "p'rutah.' No legal action could be brought to recover anything worth less than a "p'rutah." The rabbis, in describing the rapacity of the generation of the Flood, have said. "So cunningly were their depredations planned that the law could not touch them. If a countryman brought a baskl t les to market, they would edge up to it. one after another, and abstract a bit, each in itself of petty value, but in a little while the dealer would have none left to sell." This is what is meant by ". and the earth was filled with violence." Their theft was cunningly perpetrated. They ruined the victim and he had no legal redress. You see. they were "within the law." "Within the law." That was it. Nothing so proved to God their %  sness, their having forfeited the claim to life, as did this sly, ii lerhanded method of robbing "within the law." They robbed and ruined and yet were law-abiding citizens. No law could touch them. No action could l> brought against them by the sufferer. Each : : • than the value of a "p'rutah." though, in the aggrothey had completely ruined the victim. Since no court on earth red redress or punishment, God decided to "wash" the slate clean. The: We are about due to have another. It appears that, though the -innerwere d* wned, thi sin survived the flood. We find it quite prevalent. There are BO many who are just "within the law." Their crimes just fall short of earning for them indictments. Though their depredations are matterof C immon knowledge; though the crieof the quite plainly heard; yet the violence has been 80 erly tied up with legal technicalities, in their favor, that indicl••and convictions are impossible. Accuse these men. who are "within the law," of any wrongful acts, and they flare up in righteous t'.'I indignation. They tell you to "prove it"; but. proving it in a court of law—on earth—is well nigh impossible, and they know it. So, they continue to be respected ( '.'I members of the community; they use their ill-gotten gains in gestures of hypocritical charitable acts; and they assert themselves in loud tones at public gatherings and on or communal proji Hut. there are higher courts. I am too impatient to wait for the I • on High with its assured final .iu-t decree. 1 refer to the court of public opinion. I have in mind the voice of the decent and honorable citizenry. It is high time that it be heard. Grumbling, passive submission', occasional whispers, will not remedy the situation. As long awe permil such conditions to exist without doing anything to stop them; as long as we merely talk about them and take no -tops to call a halt; as long as the men of "violence" are permitted to fortify themselves with an air of respectability, though many suffer from their outrages committed "within the law"; as long as we subject our youth to their influences, and the youth seethem "getting away with murder"; just so long will we continue to sink, and sink, deeper into the mire of greed and rapacity cloaked with an air of respectability because it ioutside the jurisdiction of the courts. The effrontery and impudence of such men knowno bounds. They pose as model citizens, assume position.of leadership and authority, force their distorted views upon the meek and guileless, ride ruthlessly over the finer sensibilities of the decent members of any group wherein they have grasped the reins of leadership; and they have the unmitigated gall to retain those exalted positions in order to escape their .iust punishments. There are many who seek positions of honor in religious, philanthropic and civic groups, so that, when charges of "violence" are brought against them, some gullible fools shall say, "What? He's accused of such-and-such? Impossible! Why. he's an outstanding member of this group, or of that organization." I have Been too much of that sort of thing—see much of it today—to be fooled by thi' outward appearance of respectability. Many worthwhile organizatioss do not thrive, fail to receive the support which their high objectives merit, for no other reason but because they harbor in their midst, often have as their active heads, men and women who should be ostracized, if not actually imprisoned, for their acts of violence "within the law." They reflect discredit and dishonor on the group, and no one seems to have the courage to inform the body of the organization, or to face the) culprit and tell him where he belongs. When such a step is suggested, some timid and kindhearted sou 1 will say, "Now. don't be too harsh on him. Why hurt his feelings?" No thought is given to the feelings of those who have been cheated by the guilty one; no one considers the suffering of those who are daily subjected to the rapacity of the unscrupulous robbers; there are no defenders of the rights of the victims to come forward to speak in their behalf; thev are even prevented from securing legal redress, since the acts have been committed "within the law." When a suggestion is made that objections be raised to advise certain groups that their conduct is unethical and unjust; when one who is hurt at the sight of injustice seekto stay the hand of a per., utor, he la told that he lacks tact, since when does it require tact to cry out at Injustice and persecution? How much more consideration does a murderer merit than he displays towards his victims? Because crimes are committed "within the law" are they shorn of foul players.

Have we placed a premium on treachery and falsehood? Does one earn our respect because he cheats us in a manner that baffles a grand jury asd prevents it from returning an indictment ? The "Don Hammabbul," the Generation of the Flood, also thought that they would escape punishment indefinitely, since no mortal grand jury could gather enough material to return indcitments against them. But. they reckoned without the corrupting influences of their violence. They were drowned in the flood of the consequences of their own acts.

In which he categorically denied
the rumors and pointed out that he
was himself descended from Jews.
Hedin admitted that he believed in
the Nazi theories, but declared that
his Jewish ancestry ought to dis-
pose of the rumors against him.
The noted explorer was recently
received by Hitler. Hedin'a ad-
mission of his Jewish origin con-
firms reports recently published in
the Jewish press that he is a direct
descendant of a Swedish Jew by
the name of Abraham Brody, who
in the eighteenth century em-
braced Christianity and changed
his name to John Kristian Berlin.
It was Kristian Gessel Berlin, a
grandson of Brody, who became the
maternal grandfather of Sven
Hedin.
It is said that disasters set us
thinking. Only a great shock, it
seems, releases the real generos-
ities and the real sympathies. No
doubt, wiseacres shrug their shoul-
ders and urge all sorts of pro-
found reasons why the severe dam-
ages of the recent hurricane should
not have been. But the point is
that, while nature is sometimes at
its worst, human nature is ofttimes
at its worst. And the lesson of it
all is not that we may justify or
accuse anyone, or the "One," but
that we should realize that after
all, when men face the real life
they are near to one another and
help one another. True, if a hur-
ricane is the triumph of brute na-
turethe love and the pity and
the quick rush to rescue and the
tremor of sympathy all over the
city is the triumph of man. Many
disasters have gone across the
earth, but we forget them easily.
Providence is a terrible disciplina-
rian and its pupils learn so slug-
gishly. We learn surely, though
slowly.
If this recent disaster set you
thinking, may I be permitted as
a rabbi to take advantage of your
faculties and reason with you. You
know, a statesman has been de-
-irilied as a man who uses his
tongue to hide his heart. The av-
erage person uses labels and slo-
gans to avoid the painful process
of thinking. It is much easier to
-ay pompously, "I am a Democrat"
or "I am a Republican" or "I am
a Mason or an Elk," than to ex-
plain the reasons for one's rela-
tion-hip or one's attitude towards
great governmental problems or
sociological ideals. So it is much
easier to describe one's -elf as
Reform, or Orthodox, Or Conserv-
ative than to analyze just what
one is, hopes for, and is actually
doing.
I.ahds are therefore popular.
They save thought. 1 do not care
whether you be a nominal, racial
or religious Jew. Remember that
in the eyes of the world, we are all
.lew-! As a result of labels we
argue and quibble childishly with-
out making any progress in Jew-
ish endeavors. The editor of the
Jewish Floridian, last week, ex-
coriated the attitude of Jewish fra-
ternities at the university in
Gainesville. Even if it be true, we
adults have no right to complain
about our Jewish college youth.
Look at conditions in .Miami! We
find concrete evidences of such
childish traits. Instead of uniting
as to a city-wide plan about Amor-
non-participation in the
Olympic games at Berlin, or boy-
,.oU of German made goodswe
jewa differ as to methods of pro-
cedure, thereby hindering the prog-
,t such projects. Would that
I had the space to discuss the hol-
lowness of modern professions
among our Jews, the continuing
danger from savage egotism, the
Ottawa (WNS)A final check-
up on the returns from the Cana-
dian national election shows that
three and not two Jews, as report-
ed earlier, were elected to parlia-
. ment. As previously reported,
Samuel W. Jacobs in Montreal and
Samuel Factor in Toronto retained
their seats and the final tally
shows that A. A. Heaps of Winni-
peg was also re-elected after a nip
and tuck contest with Tim Buck,
leader of the Communist party.
From the Jewish point of view the
election demonstrated two things:
first, that Canadian Jews have no
use for Communism, and second,
that anti-Semitism has no mass
appeal in the Dominion. The fact
that Jacobs polled 13,000 votes in
the Cartier division of Quebec
province, a district with a large
Jewish electorate, while opposed
by a Communist candidate who was
a Jew, showed that Communism
has no hold among Canadian Jew-
ry. Jacobs' victory also proved
the weakness of anti-Semitism
when he swamped Saluste Lavery,
anti-Semitic candidate, Through-
out the country anti-Semitic can-
didates were defeated and the fail-
ure of the new Reconstructionist
party to elect more than one mem-
ber is attributed to the fact that
the party's leader, H. H. Stevens,
bad taken up with the anti-Sem-
ites. A curious sidelight was pro-
vided in Ottawa, where Jean Tis-
sot, convicted of criminal libel
against A. J. Freiman, president of
the Canadian Zionist organization,
was hopelessly beaten.
Strictly
Confidential
unweakened necessity of Jewish
solidarity. Suffice for mo to slate
that here in Miami and elsewhere
a much needed lesson of Jewish
manliness is essential at this junc-
ture of a false refinement, and an
unprincipled Jewish ambition for
social status. Does not our silence
and indifference give the sanction
of consent to all the scoundrels
and rascals we tolerate as com-
pany? Are we not afraid of the
naked truth as of something rude
and refined? Have we not dressed
her image up in so many circumlo-
cutions and equivocations that we
flee from her when she appears
unveiled in the beauty of her pur-
ity?
We claim the title of truth's
guardian, we Jews! On what kind
of terms are we living with can-
dor and frankness in our social
relationships'.' Not enough that
petty business considerations and
effeminate society habits keep
hack fiom our lips the Strong
words we have almost unlearned
to use, but we are trembling with
redoubled apprehensions when it is
our own foibles that are to be
pointed out, dragged to the light,
overwhelmed with righteous con-
demnation. It is the Gentile's
judgment we are warned against
affecting, for it is our own morbid
sensitiveness, our own petted con-
ceits around which we want drawn
the protecting fence of a polite si-
lence. To my mind, no greater in-

Is there any possible connection
between General Charles H. Sher-
rill's pro-Olympic propaganda and
his lifelong ambition to be United
States ambassador to Germany?
Any chance the general ever had
to represent Uncle Sam in Berlin
is now gone forever Helene
Mayer won't admit it, but the real
reason that she finally accepted
the invitation to represent Ger-
many in the 1030 Olympics was the
terrific pressure brought to bear
on her by her mother, who is a
pure Aryan ... It is curious that
Helena's brother, who is also a
crack swordsman, has not been
asked to fence for Germany .
Incidentally, Miss Mayer has been
deluged with letters both congrat-
ulating her and bitterly criticizing
her for accepting that invitation
. High government officials in
Washington have received at least
1 1,000,000 letters from various parts
'of the country demanding the
elimination of Jews from public
I office.

Jewish boxer who was stripped of
his titles by Hitler.

For Zionist Duty
Addressing itself to one of the major problems confront-
in); (he Zionist movement in this country, the administrative
committee of the Zionist Organization of America, is making
plans to convene an extraordinary conference of all parties
and organizations within the Zionist movement for the pur-
pose of creating a united front agency to take over the direc-
tion of all Palestine fund-raising agencies and to co-ordinate
them in a I'nited Palestine Appeal. That such a united
fond-raising agency is badly needed no one familiar with
Zionist affairs in America can or will deny. The competi-
tion for funds by the various Zionist parties and groups does
the Zionist cause no good.
Since the last World Zionist Congress there has been
much talk of Zionist unity The administrative committee's
proposal opens the way to translate this talk into action. If
the American Palestine Campaign, the .Jewish National Fund,
the Mizrachi, the Poale-Zion and Hadassah will merge their
fund-raising activities in a single Palestine appeal, then an
important step will have been taken along the road to Zion-
ist unity. Unification of Palestine fund-raising would also
eliminate overlapping, unnecessary overhead and would un-
doubtedly produce more money for Palestine than could have
been derived from a continuation of the I'nited Jewish Ap-
peal partnership with the Joint Distribution Committee.
We believe that the proposed united front agency is one
of the most constructive measures yet suggested to bring
about harmony and unity in American Zionism. Zionist
parties and groups that refuse to co-operate in this under-
takini; will certainly be open to a charge of having sabotaged
Zlonisl progress in the United States.

Offhand it would appear that to say of a man that he conducts
himself "within the law" is to compliment the fellow, but this is not
necessarily bo, as we Bhall soon sec from an analysis of the expression.
If one is really good and honorable, law-abiding and just, we should
say that of him; but, when we speak of him as keeping "within the
law," it is intended to convey the thought that he violates many morai
Standards, without actually breaking the law. That is no compliment.
The rabbis who interpreted Scripture and who Sought to find
every possible moral lesson contained therein for the instruction and
improvement of man: who scrutinized every verse and expression, that
they might glean all the noble thoughts and miss nol one of the in-
spired and divine teachings of the Holy Hook; who saw in the Bible
not merely a narrative, a biography of a people, but a code of living, a
wise, though oftimes veiled, guidance for the children of men: these
sages were not satisfied with a superficial reading of the text: they
analyzed it. From this careful and conscientious analysis and study,
fl wish faith and its high moral teachings were evolved,
Though the generation of the flood was wi.ked and sinful in
many ways; .hough it has been recorded as lewd and immoral, idol-
atrous and murderous, the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's
hack." the sin that hastened the end of that iniquitous generation, is
given as ". and the earth was filled with violence," according to
the eleventh verse of the sixth chapter of Genesis. The rabbis have
n the following interpretation of this expression. But, we first
have B few definitions in order to understand what is to follow.
In giving legal definition to the llchrw word "gazail." the word
for robbery, the rabbis have classified it as the "taking from another of
an article worth a "p'rutah or more." A "p'rutah" is a coin of little
value. The Hebrew word for violence is "chomos," and it is defined
as the taking from another of an article worth less than a "p'rutah.'
No legal action could be brought to recover anything worth less than
a "p'rutah." The rabbis, in describing the rapacity of the generation
of the Flood, have said. "So cunningly were their depredations planned
that the law could not touch them. If a countryman brought a baskl t
. les to market, they would edge up to it. one after another,
and abstract a bit, each in itself of petty value, but in a little while
the dealer would have none left to sell." This is what is meant by
". and the earth was filled with violence." Their theft was cunningly
perpetrated. They ruined the victim and he had no legal redress.
You see. they were "within the law."
"Within the law." That was it. Nothing so proved to God their
sness, their having forfeited the claim to life, as did this
sly, ii lerhanded method of robbing "within the law." They robbed
and ruined and yet were law-abiding citizens. No law could touch
them. No action could l> brought against them by the sufferer. Each
:, : than the value of a "p'rutah." though, in the aggro-
they had completely ruined the victim. Since no court on earth
red redress or punishment, God decided to "wash" the slate clean.
The:
We are about due to have another. It appears that, though the
-inner- were d* wned, thi sin survived the flood. We find it quite
prevalent. There are BO many who are just "within the law." Their
crimes just fall short of earning for them indictments. Though their
depredations are matter- of C immon knowledge; though the crie- of
the quite plainly heard; yet the violence has been 80
erly tied up with legal technicalities, in their favor, that indicl-
- and convictions are impossible. Accuse these men. who are
"within the law," of any wrongful acts, and they flare up in righ-
teous t'.'I indignation. They tell you to "prove it"; but. proving it in
a court of lawon earthis well nigh impossible, and they know it.
So, they continue to be respected ( '.'I members of the community; they
use their ill-gotten gains in gestures of hypocritical charitable acts;
and they assert themselves in loud tones at public gatherings and on
or communal proji
Hut. there are higher courts. I am too impatient to wait for the
I on High with its assured final .iu-t decree. 1 refer to the court
of public opinion. I have in mind the voice of the decent and honorable
citizenry. It is high time that it be heard. Grumbling, passive sub-
mission', occasional whispers, will not remedy the situation. As long a-
we permil such conditions to exist without doing anything to stop
them; as long as we merely talk about them and take no -tops to call
a halt; as long as the men of "violence" are permitted to fortify
themselves with an air of respectability, though many suffer from their
outrages committed "within the law"; as long as we subject our youth
to their influences, and the youth see- them "getting away with mur-
der"; just so long will we continue to sink, and sink, deeper into the
mire of greed and rapacity cloaked with an air of respectability be-
cause it i- outside the jurisdiction of the courts.
The effrontery and impudence of such men know- no bounds. They
pose as model citizens, assume position.- of leadership and authority,
force their distorted views upon the meek and guileless, ride ruth-
lessly over the finer sensibilities of the decent members of any group
wherein they have grasped the reins of leadership; and they have the
unmitigated gall to retain those exalted positions in order to escape
their .iust punishments. There are many who seek positions of honor
in religious, philanthropic and civic groups, so that, when charges of
"violence" are brought against them, some gullible fools shall say,
"What? He's accused of such-and-such? Impossible! Why. he's an
outstanding member of this group, or of that organization." I have
Been too much of that sort of thingsee much of it todayto be fooled
by thi' outward appearance of respectability.
Many worthwhile organizatioss do not thrive, fail to receive the
support which their high objectives merit, for no other reason but
because they harbor in their midst, often have as their active heads, men
and women who should be ostracized, if not actually imprisoned, for
their acts of violence "within the law." They reflect discredit and
dishonor on the group, and no one seems to have the courage to inform
the body of the organization, or to face the) culprit and tell him where
he belongs. When such a step is suggested, some timid and kind-
hearted sou1 will say, "Now. don't be too harsh on him. Why hurt his
feelings?" No thought is given to the feelings of those who have
been cheated by the guilty one; no one considers the suffering of those
who are daily subjected to the rapacity of the unscrupulous robbers;
there are no defenders of the rights of the victims to come forward to
speak in their behalf; thev are even prevented from securing legal
redress, since the acts have been committed "within the law."
When a suggestion is made that objections be raised to advise
certain groups that their conduct is unethical and unjust; when one
who is hurt at the sight of injustice seek- to stay the hand of a per-
., utor, he la told that he lacks tact, since when does it require tact
to cry out at Injustice and persecution? How much more considera-
tion does a murderer merit than he displays towards his victims?
Because crimes are committed "within the law" are they shorn of
foul players.

their villainy? Have we placed a premium on treachery and false-
hood? Does one earn our respect because he cheats us in a manner
that baffles a grand jury asd prevents it from returning an indict-
ment ?
The "Don Hammabbul," the Generation of the Flood, also thought
that they would escape punishment indefinitely, since no mortal grand
jury could gather enough material to return indcitments against them.
But. they reckoned without the corrupting influences of their violence.
They were drowned in the flood of the consequences of their own acts.
Let US drown the "men of violence" of our day in the flood of public
opinion which asserts itself when the waves of crimes "within the
law" can no longer be held in check. The storm is about to break.
Be prepared.
