Birkhead Denounces Anti-Semitic Organizations And Names Landon Supporters Among Them Many years ago Achad Ha-Am warned the Jews of the danger of letting the judgment of their enemies contaminate their own consciousness. It is this contamination that has caused the phenomenon of Jewish self-hatred on which the late Theodor Lessing wrote a whole book and which in its devious manifestations is daily revealed to anyone who knows the Jewish masses of America and Western Europe. We find this Jewish self-hatred and self-deprecation and self-torture manifested again in connection with the supposed clash of interests between the Arab and the Jewish populations in Palestine. Again and again I have met Jew.= younger Jews and older Jews, who were worried about the Arabs. And these Jews generally thought they belonged to leftist groups or persuasions and had no glimmering of suspicion that their leftist leanings were in part at least Jewish flight and defense mechanisms. If (like The Nation, for instance) you worry about the Arabs it is evident that you are a great lover of mankind and thoroughly objective and so and so here comes an enormous leap, both psychological and historical the pogromchiks of the future may forget you. Don't fret. They won't. You will be mitgefangen, mitgehangen, and will have nothing to look back on except the fact that you have betrayed Israel. • It has been proven over and over again on strictest scientific grounds, and announced and affirmed by Gentile scientists and political leaders in books, in pamphlets, in scientific reports and on the floor of parliament in London, that the Jewish resettlement of Palestine has been of undivided benefit to the Arab population. That the Arab standard of living has been immensely improved, that Arab vital statistics have taken an upward turn, that Arabs, instead of leaving Palestine, have flocked thither to share in the work and health the Jews have brought. That only 625 Arab peasants have ever been displaced from their original holdings and that these 626 received such compensation in money and in land as was heretofore unheard of in the entire Near Fast. That the amazing credit balance of the present Palestinian government comes out of the pockets of Jewish taxpayers and that nevertheless in the matter of government subsidies to education, agriculture, all other purposes, the Jewish Yishub receives laughable pittances and the Arab population (Continued on Page .'!) New York (WNS)—The Sentinels of the Republic, whose alleged anti-Semitic activities were recently whitewashed following apologies by its leaders, are still engaged in spreading anti-Jewish I propaganda, it was asserted by the Rev. L. M. Birkhead of Kansas City in an interview in which he disclosed that more than 100 anti-Semitic and Fascist organizations with a membership of 4,000,000 are at work in the United States. Warning that the activity of these groups is alarmingly similar to that of the Nazis before they gained power, Dr. Birkhead said that only an "American Hitler to assume control" is necessary and "the danger of a Fascist coup would be imminent." Charging that these organizations are supporting the presidential candidacy of Governor Landon "because all the other parties do j not meet with their racial and political qualifications," Dr. Birkhead ex plained that "Father Coughlin is not acceptable to them because he is a Catholic, and President Roosevelt, constantly described by them as Rosenfelt, is actually anathema to them. His administration is often describe I as the 'American Jew-deal.' The fact that these organizations are supporting Landon has given the responsible Republican leaders much concern, but through the West and Middle West petty Republican politicians are distributing their literature and propaganda." Dr. Birkhead also asserted thai all these organizations are interrelated, that they use literature emanating from a common source and are directly or indirectly connected with Julius Streicher, and they all use the same technique of blaming everything on the Jews. Among the organizations cited by Dr. Birkhead are the White Shirts and Crusaders, led by Harry Jung, who has already climbed on the Landon bandwagon; the Black Legion, which he said is not broken up but merely driven underground, and operating under the name of the United Brotherhood of America, or American Patriots; the Christian Vigilantes; the Friends of the New Germany; Robert Edward Edmondson; the American National Labor Party; a group which publishes ihe American Gentile, a paper modeled on Stretcher's Stuermer; the Rev. Gerald Winrod, who publishes the Revealer and the Defender, two anti-Semitic sheets, at Wichita. Kan., and the Black Shirts, an organization which charges that federal relief is in the hands of Jews trying to starve out Gentiles. While in the East Dr. Birkhead intends to organize a movement to expose and combat these organisations. Jewish News Around the World Non-Jewish Olympian to Aid in Counteracting Nazi Propaganda New York (WNS)—When Mavis Freeman of the women's Olympic swimming team arrives in Germany she will not only attempt to score for Uncle Sam, but will try to carry out her father's injunction to counteract Nazi propaganda in the Olympic games. Miss Freeman's father, John P. Freeman of Port Washington, L. I., a non-Jew, was militantly opposed to American participation in the Berlin games. "The only hope left for myself and others opposed to the tactics of the present German regime," he said, "rests with these youngsters of the Olympic team. Sportsmanship, the upholding of the Olympic ideal will help counteract it. That's the job Mavis must do for me." Nine Arabs Killed in Battles With British Troops Jewish Congress To Last Ten Days Geneva (WNS)—The sessions of the first World Jewish Congress will begin on the evening of August 8th and will continue for approximately ten days, the Geneva bureau of the committee of Jewish delegations announces. All sessions will be held in the municipal Batiment Electoral, known as the League of Nations Hall, because it usually houses the large assemblies of the league. Conference committees and bureaus of the congress will be chosen after August 8th. The Federation of Swiss Jewish Communities has elected three delegates to the congress. With Louis Lipsky, vice-president of the American Jewish Congress and one of the five delcgatesat-large, leading the way, the advance guard of the American delegation to the World Jewish Congress to be held at Geneva on August 8th has begun leaving for the gathering. Jacob Fishman. managing editor of the Jewish | Morning Journal; Prof. II. J. Ettlinger of the University of Texas, Max Silverstein, grand master of the I. 0. B'rith Abraham, and Rabbi Irving Miller of Far Rockaway, N. Y., will sail on July 23rd. Judge I Julian W. Mack. Dr. Harry Friedenwald and Rabbi Edward Israel, as well as Louis Sturz of New York, have already sailed. The bulk of the American delegation will leave on the Queen Mary on July 29th. As the date for the congress approaches more delegates are being named from every part of the j world, and much of the opposition to the congress is being silenced. A Real Tribute Too often have we been prone to forget a man's efforts and work for a community, for his people, and for the general welfare of all, until after one's death. And then, our tributes have been mostly of the lip kind. The Jewish community or Greater Miami has suffered a real loss in the untimely death of Harry I. Upton, prominent attorney, president of the Miami Zionist District, and unselfish worker in every movement that meant the betterment of conditions for his fellowman. The Jewish Floridian feels that the time is opportune for the en( tire Jewish community to pay tribute to the memory of Harry I. Lipton in a manner that would have met his approval, were he with us today. In lull accord with a number of leaders of the Jewish community, the Jewish Floridian proposes the establishment of a "Lip-' Ion Memorial Fund." the proceeds of which will be used towards the planting of trees in Palestine, and the inscribing of Harry I. I.ipton's name in the "Golden Book." It is proposed that every friend be given the opportunity of participating in this movement, by contributing in sums from one to five dollars. If you want to join in paying tribute to the memory of one who well deserved it you are urged to send your contribution to Mr. Harry I. Simonhoff, Congress hui'din {. The list of contributors will be published in our next issue. Liberal Minister Mourned by Many New York (WNS)—Christian and Jew alike are mourning the Rev. Dr. Samuel Parkes (.'adman, minister, author, lecturer and uncompromising foe of religious bigotry and persecution, who died at Champlain Valley Hospital in Plattsburg at the age of 71. Known to millions of radio listeners for his radio sermons. Dr. Cailnun achieved an international reputation through his lifelong efforts to eradicate racial and religious prejudices. He was one of the founders of the National Conference of Jews and Christians, chairman of the American Christian Committee for German Refugees and an active supporter of the United Jewish Appeal. Since the advent of the Nazi regime and its persecutions in 1988 he had been in the forefront of those urging organized Christianity to protest. Dr. ('adman was a militant opponent of American participation in t! 'i Berlin Olympics, and a leader in every movement to uproot antiSemitic organizations. Left Wing Delegates Will Not Be Seated at World Jewish Congress Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency) In a pitched battle between British soldiers and f>0 armed Arabs in the hills of Safed two Arabs were killed and an undetermined number of others were either wounded or slain. The Arabs had recently been terrorizing the Jews of Safed and the surrounding districts, and had been intimidating other Arabs. Sergeant Harrison York of the Lancaster regiment was accidentally killed after the battle when a transport loi ry overturned. He was the fifth British soldier to fall since the beginning of the disturbances. Seven Arab bandits were killed in the Jenin district when troops from Jenin came to the rescue of a telephone wire repair crew whom the Arabs attacked. Military operations against gangs of terrorists and snipers in the North Palestine hills have again been intensified. Special mules ordered by the government from Syprus, to facilitate the work of cleaning out terrorist bands in the hills of Samaria, arrived in Nablus and Tulkarem. The mules will be used to transport supplies over the difficult terrain, which motor cars cannot penetrate. New York (WNS) -The official American delegation to the World Jewish Congress will challenge the five delegates chosen by a meeting of left wing organizations. Louis Lipsky, acting president of the American Jewish Congress, announced here. Seating of the left wing delegates at Geneva will be opposed, Mr. Lipsky said, because Jewish Communists "had forfeited .heir right to be represented in any lewish convention for the defense if Jewish rights because of their defense and support of the tactics if the Palestine Jewish Communists." London iWNS) Measures for strengthening the anti-Nazi boycott are being considered by the International Trade Unions Congress, now in session here. Sir Walter Citrine 1 president of the congress, said that the boycott "is more effective than many of US realize, but it must be made m ire effective still." He also told the congress that he believed Fascism is on the wane as a result of the electoral triumphs of anti-Faacist groups in Belgium. France and Spain. The congress was thrown into a temporary uproar when rep. resentatives of Nazi labor unions sought admission. They were told in vigorous language that they we: e officially barred.

The silver lining to the present depression has been a long time showing itself, but finally it is beginning to gleam through the banked clouds of our troubled horizon. Men and women who have had their pens, brushes, scalpels, musical instruments, masks and wigs rudely struck from their hands into desuetude are being enabled, by the paternalism of the federal cultural projects, to revive hope, ambition and inspirational fervor in their various arts. Throughout the United States of America the government is helping to make possible the renascence of the theatre. No one who has watched, with sickness of spirit, the spectacle of this noble institution succumbing to such inroads as the depression, the motion picture, the radio and what-not, can fail to thrill to this sudden vitalizing of the fainting art of the spoken drama. If the so-called depression had developed nothing more than this "lie streak of silver lining to the dark clouds, then it would not have been all in vain. There is no telling to what this renascence of the drama may lead. Out of such stuff may conceivably be born the ultimate dream of the subsidized theatre. In New York City, in smaller cities, in towns, villages and even hamlets we have evidence of the new-born vitality. Thanks to the governmental leg-up, thousands of unemployed actors, playwrights I and countless persons connected with the theatre in various capacities are once more climbing aboard | the lugger, with resulting performances so stimulating that critics and public alike have their ears cmked for what new and next in this adventurous young enterprise, the WPA theatre movement. Man may not be able to live by his cultural development alone, but i there is no doubt that it is the cultural vitamins which, even as' red meat and succulent vegetables, contribute conspicuously to the development of a civilization. Make no mistake, this present administration has proved, is" proving itself and will doubtless continue to prove itself alertly aware of the importance of this kind of mental vitality which resides behind the frontal bone. Do not forget that for years American sculptors, actors, authors, painters, men and women in the vocational arts. have been practically starving to death. When the wheels of industry slowed down, the wheels of the arts stopped. The administration's measures to meet this paralysis have been challenging. Painters have been put to work, sculptors, designers, etchers, water coluri^ts, photographers.' Public buildings are simultaneously becoming the beneficiaries of the depression and of the latent talent of the nation. Murals and friezes, the result of WPA federal art projects, relate their narratives not only in stone, but in symbolism. They symbolize the nation's call to art. Writers cannot so easily be regimented.

CHRISTIAN MINISTER EXPOSES
ANTI-JEWISH PROPAGANDA
Rev. L. M. Birkhead Denounces Anti-Semitic Organizations
And Names Landon Supporters Among Them
Many years ago Achad Ha-Am
warned the Jews of the danger of
letting the judgment of their en-
emies contaminate their own con-
sciousness. It is this contamina-
tion that has caused the phenom-
enon of Jewish self-hatred on which
the late Theodor Lessing wrote a
whole book and which in its de-
vious manifestations is daily re-
vealed to anyone who knows the
Jewish masses of America and
Western Europe.
We find this Jewish self-hatred
and self-deprecation and self-tor-
ture manifested again in connec-
tion with the supposed clash of
interests between the Arab and the
Jewish populations in Palestine.
Again and again I have met Jew.= ,
younger Jews and older Jews, who
were worried about the Arabs. And
these Jews generally thought they
belonged to leftist groups or per-
suasions and had no glimmering
of suspicion that their leftist lean-
ings were in part at least Jewish
flight and defense mechanisms. If
(like The Nation, for instance) you
worry about the Arabs it is evi-
dent that you are a great lover of
mankind and thoroughly objective
and so and so here comes
an enormous leap, both psycholog-
ical and historical the pogrom-
chiks of the future may forget you.
Don't fret. They won't. You
will be mitgefangen, mitgehangen,
and will have nothing to look back
on except the fact that you have
betrayed Israel.
*
It has been proven over and
over again on strictest scientific
grounds, and announced and af-
firmed by Gentile scientists and
political leaders in books, in pam-
phlets, in scientific reports and on
the floor of parliament in London,
that the Jewish resettlement of
Palestine has been of undivided
benefit to the Arab population.
That the Arab standard of living
has been immensely improved, that
Arab vital statistics have taken an
upward turn, that Arabs, instead
of leaving Palestine, have flocked
thither to share in the work and
health the Jews have brought.
That only 625 Arab peasants have
ever been displaced from their
original holdings and that these
626 received such compensation in
money and in land as was hereto-
fore unheard of in the entire Near
Fast. That the amazing credit
balance of the present Palestinian
government comes out of the pock-
ets of Jewish taxpayers and that
nevertheless in the matter of gov-
ernment subsidies to education, ag-
riculture, all other purposes, the
Jewish Yishub receives laughable
pittances and the Arab population
(Continued on Page .'!)
New York (WNS)The Senti-
nels of the Republic, whose al-
leged anti-Semitic activities were
recently whitewashed following
apologies by its leaders, are still
engaged in spreading anti-Jewish
I propaganda, it was asserted by the
Rev. L. M. Birkhead of Kansas City
in an interview in which he dis-
closed that more than 100 anti-Se-
mitic and Fascist organizations
with a membership of 4,000,000 are
at work in the United States.
Warning that the activity of these
groups is alarmingly similar to
that of the Nazis before they
gained power, Dr. Birkhead said
that only an "American Hitler to
assume control" is necessary and
"the danger of a Fascist coup
would be imminent."
Charging that these organiza-
tions are supporting the presiden-
tial candidacy of Governor Landon
"because all the other parties do
j not meet with their racial and po-
litical qualifications," Dr. Birk-
head ex plained that "Father
Coughlin is not acceptable to them
because he is a Catholic, and Pres-
ident Roosevelt, constantly de-
scribed by them as Rosenfelt, is
actually anathema to them. His
administration is often describe I
as the 'American Jew-deal.' The
fact that these organizations are
supporting Landon has given the
responsible Republican leaders
much concern, but through the
West and Middle West petty Re-
publican politicians are distribut-
ing their literature and propa-
ganda."
Dr. Birkhead also asserted thai
all these organizations are inter-
related, that they use literature em-
anating from a common source and
are directly or indirectly connected
' with Julius Streicher, and they all
use the same technique of blaming
everything on the Jews. Among
the organizations cited by Dr.
Birkhead are the White Shirts and
Crusaders, led by Harry Jung, who
has already climbed on the Landon
bandwagon; the Black Legion,
which he said is not broken up but
merely driven underground, and
operating under the name of the
United Brotherhood of America, or
American Patriots; the Christian
Vigilantes; the Friends of the New
Germany; Robert Edward Edmond-
son; the American National Labor
Party; a group which publishes ihe
American Gentile, a paper modeled
on Stretcher's Stuermer; the Rev.
Gerald Winrod, who publishes the
Revealer and the Defender, two
anti-Semitic sheets, at Wichita.
Kan., and the Black Shirts, an or-
ganization which charges that fed-
eral relief is in the hands of Jews
trying to starve out Gentiles.
While in the East Dr. Birkhead
intends to organize a movement to
expose and combat these organisa-
tions.

Non-Jewish Olympian to Aid in
Counteracting Nazi Propaganda
New York (WNS)When Mavis
Freeman of the women's Olympic
swimming team arrives in Ger-
many she will not only attempt to
score for Uncle Sam, but will try
to carry out her father's injunc-
tion to counteract Nazi propaganda
in the Olympic games. Miss Free-
man's father, John P. Freeman of
Port Washington, L. I., a non-Jew,
was militantly opposed to Ameri-
can participation in the Berlin
games. "The only hope left for
myself and others opposed to the
tactics of the present German re-
gime," he said, "rests with these
youngsters of the Olympic team.
Sportsmanship, the upholding of
the Olympic ideal will help coun-
teract it. That's the job Mavis
must do for me."

Jewish Congress
To Last Ten Days
Geneva (WNS)The sessions of
the first World Jewish Congress
will begin on the evening of Au-
gust 8th and will continue for ap-
proximately ten days, the Geneva
bureau of the committee of Jewish
delegations announces. All ses-
sions will be held in the municipal
Batiment Electoral, known as the
League of Nations Hall, because it
usually houses the large assemblies
of the league. Conference commit-
tees and bureaus of the congress
will be chosen after August 8th.
The Federation of Swiss Jewish
Communities has elected three del-
egates to the congress.
With Louis Lipsky, vice-presi-
dent of the American Jewish Con-
gress and one of the five delcgates-
at-large, leading the way, the ad-
vance guard of the American dele-
gation to the World Jewish Con-
gress to be held at Geneva on Au-
gust 8th has begun leaving for
the gathering. Jacob Fishman.
managing editor of the Jewish |
Morning Journal; Prof. II. J. Ett-
linger of the University of Texas,
Max Silverstein, grand master of
the I. 0. B'rith Abraham, and Rab-
bi Irving Miller of Far Rockaway,
N. Y., will sail on July 23rd. Judge I
Julian W. Mack. Dr. Harry Fried-
enwald and Rabbi Edward Israel, ,
as well as Louis Sturz of New
York, have already sailed. The
bulk of the American delegation
will leave on the Queen Mary on
July 29th.
As the date for the congress ap-
proaches more delegates are being
named from every part of the j
world, and much of the opposition
to the congress is being silenced.
A Real Tribute
Too often have we been prone to
forget a man's efforts and work
for a community, for his people,
and for the general welfare of all,
until after one's death. And then,
our tributes have been mostly of
the lip kind.
The Jewish community or Great-
er Miami has suffered a real loss
in the untimely death of Harry I.
Upton, prominent attorney, presi-
dent of the Miami Zionist District,
and unselfish worker in every
movement that meant the better-
ment of conditions for his fellow-
man.
The Jewish Floridian feels that
the time is opportune for the en-
( tire Jewish community to pay trib-
ute to the memory of Harry I. Lip-
ton in a manner that would have
met his approval, were he with us
today. In lull accord with a num-
ber of leaders of the Jewish com-
munity, the Jewish Floridian pro-
poses the establishment of a "Lip-'
Ion Memorial Fund." the proceeds
of which will be used towards the
planting of trees in Palestine, and
the inscribing of Harry I. I.ipton's
name in the "Golden Book." It is
proposed that every friend be given
the opportunity of participating in
this movement, by contributing in
sums from one to five dollars.
If you want to join in paying
tribute to the memory of one who
well deserved it you are urged to
send your contribution to Mr. Har-
ry I. Simonhoff, Congress hui'din {.
The list of contributors will be
published in our next issue.
Liberal Minister
Mourned by Many
New York (WNS)Christian and
Jew alike are mourning the Rev.
Dr. Samuel Parkes (.'adman, min-
ister, author, lecturer and uncom-
promising foe of religious bigotry
and persecution, who died at Cham-
plain Valley Hospital in Platts-
burg at the age of 71. Known to
millions of radio listeners for his
radio sermons. Dr. Cailnun
achieved an international reputa-
tion through his lifelong efforts to
eradicate racial and religious prej-
udices. He was one of the found-
ers of the National Conference of
Jews and Christians, chairman of
the American Christian Committee
for German Refugees and an ac-
tive supporter of the United Jew-
ish Appeal. Since the advent of
the Nazi regime and its persecu-
tions in 1988 he had been in the
forefront of those urging organ-
ized Christianity to protest. Dr.
('adman was a militant opponent
of American participation in t! 'i
Berlin Olympics, and a leader in
every movement to uproot anti-
Semitic organizations.

Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)
In a pitched battle between Brit-
ish soldiers and f>0 armed Arabs in
the hills of Safed two Arabs were
killed and an undetermined num-
ber of others were either wounded
or slain. The Arabs had recently
been terrorizing the Jews of Safed
and the surrounding districts, and
had been intimidating other Arabs.
Sergeant Harrison York of the
, Lancaster regiment was accident-
ally killed after the battle when
a transport loi ry overturned. He
was the fifth British soldier to fall
since the beginning of the disturb-
ances.
Seven Arab bandits were killed
in the Jenin district when troops
from Jenin came to the rescue of a
telephone wire repair crew whom
the Arabs attacked.
Military operations against gangs
of terrorists and snipers in the
North Palestine hills have again
been intensified. Special mules or-
dered by the government from Sy-
prus, to facilitate the work of
cleaning out terrorist bands in the
hills of Samaria, arrived in Nablus
and Tulkarem. The mules will be
used to transport supplies over the
difficult terrain, which motor cars
cannot penetrate.
New York (WNS) -The official
American delegation to the World
Jewish Congress will challenge the
five delegates chosen by a meet-
ing of left wing organizations.
Louis Lipsky, acting president of
the American Jewish Congress, an-
nounced here. Seating of the left
wing delegates at Geneva will be
opposed, Mr. Lipsky said, because
Jewish Communists "had forfeited
.heir right to be represented in any
lewish convention for the defense
if Jewish rights because of their
defense and support of the tactics
if the Palestine Jewish Commu-
nists."
London iWNS) Measures for
strengthening the anti-Nazi boy-
cott are being considered by the
International Trade Unions Con-
gress, now in session here. Sir
Walter Citrine1, president of the
congress, said that the boycott "is
more effective than many of US
realize, but it must be made m ire
effective still." He also told the
congress that he believed Fascism
is on the wane as a result of the
electoral triumphs of anti-Faacist
groups in Belgium. France and
Spain. The congress was thrown
into a temporary uproar when rep.
resentatives of Nazi labor unions
sought admission. They were told
in vigorous language that they
we: e officially barred.

Appreciated Co-Operation
Just last week over station WIOD there came an an-
nouncement regarding the rentals "for Gentiles only." The
attention of Mr. Isaac Levin, president of the Sholem Lodge
of B'nai B'rith was called to this (to put it mildly) offensive
advertising. Mr. Abe Aronovitz, city solicitor of Miami and
chairman of the Miami B'nai B'rith Lodge's Anti-Defama-
tion Committee, immediately directed the attention of the
Miami Daily News, operators of the station, to the episode.
He called their attention to the fact that such announce-
ments were derogatory to the best interests of this com-
munity and only tended to arouse racial prejudice and ill will.
Mr. Hal Leyshon, editor of the Miami Daily News, im-
mediately replied. He stated that the Miami Daily News
fully agreed with the attitude of the B'nai B'rith, and not
only would such an announcement not again be made, but
that station WIOD and the Miami Daily News would be only
too happy to co-operate with the other newspapers and radio
stations to eliminate similar happenings.
This offer of co-operation on the part of Mr. Leyshon
and the Miami Daily News is, we are certain, appreciated by
the Jewish community of this area as an evidence of real
Americanism and the feeling of good will that has fortu-
nately pervaded this community.
A Lesson
American Jewry is genuinely happy that the Zionists
of this country have succeeded in forming a united front at
the Providence convention. The Palestine situation, over-
shadowing all personal issues, compelled those interested in
the upbuilding of Eretz Israel to accept without recrimina-
tions the decision of the majority at the Zionist conclave.
When the Zionist convention voted almost unanimously to
retain Nathan Straus as ont of the vice-presidents of the Z.
O. A. it did so fu ly aware that Mr. Straus was guilty of a
grave breach of discipline. There is no doubt that his cable
to Dr. Weizmann, demanding the resignation of Moshe Sher-
tok because the head of the Zionist political department had
expressed "too nationalistic sentiments," was an anti-Zionist
act. The delegates who listened to the indictment of Mr.
Straus by Dr. Samuel Margoshes felt that in normal times
Nathan Straus would have no place on any Zionist body.
In this country of freedom of speech and political action
Mr. Straus was entirely within his rights in expressing his
views on any phase of Zionism without restraint. As an of-
ficer of the Zionist Organization, however, he was in duty
bound to act in consultation with his colleagues. The lesson
which the Zionist convention teaches to American Jewry is
an important one: it emphasizes that party discipline, im-
portant though it may be, is not bigger than the welfare of
a large section of the people. Nathan Straus and his family
have rendered valuable services to Palestine. The tolerant
attitude of the Zionists at Providence was fully justified;
but so, also, was Dr. Margoshes' point of view.
The World's
Window
(Continued from Page 1)
all the rest. Finally: all during
the present disorders the Arabs,
many of them recent immigrants
from Hauran, have operated with
brigandage, highway robbery, knif-
ing from ambush, arson and wan-
ton destruction.
In other words, these "revolu-
tionaries" are hoodlums. And nev-
ertheless the Jewish population.
400,000 strong, has not permitted
itself to be goaded into a single
act of reprisal, and hence has
shown the first example in all hu-
man history of a community that
is able to act according to what is
supposed to be the Christian and is,
in fact, the Jewish principle of
public ethic.
*
So far, so good. We have a
fool-proof case. And we don't
need it. We did not ask to be con-
quered and dispersed. We did not
ask Titus to destroy our city and
our temple. We did not ask Ha-
drian to seek to exterminate us
and to sell our men and women
into slavery, so that the price of
a Jewish slave dropped on the glut-
ted Roman markets below the price
of a horse. We did not ask the
Church of Christ to ally itself with
empire, P)man, German, Russian,
and to crucify from age to age the
brethren and the people of Him
whom it acclaimed its Savior.
By the expulsions and murderers
and innumerable martyrdoms of
the Crusades; by the fires that
consumed the holy martyrs of An-
cona and Mainz and Troyes and
York; by the blood and memory of
those two thousand who were
burned on the Cathedral Square of
Strassbourg; by the shame and the
ghetto, the yellow badge and gab-
erdine; by the renewed and fiercer
martyrdom of our innocent people
in Poland and Russia from the sev-
enteenth century on to the recent
days of the hordes of Denekin and
Petlura; by the fieree and fiery
persecution, even to extermination,
of men and women and children
that blackens the face and cor-
rupts the heart of civilization in
Germany and Poland and Roumania
today; by the Arab knives that
tore asunder our children in the
Yeshiva of Hebron in 1929by all
these martyrdoms and memories
and in the name of all these inef-
fable frongs it is our right to de-
mand our ancient homeland as a
land of peace and freedom for us
of that Christendom whose sin
against us is as a cancer eating out
its very heart. And we would have
that right had we, brutally robbed
of experience in both colonization
and government, committed ten
thousand errors and ten thousand
involuntary injustices to the exist-
ing Palestinian population.
We have not done so. Our hands
are clean. The Arab problem, in
so far as it has any reality, is the
problem of Christendom, of that
world of the West which first drove
us into dispersion and then made
life up to this very hour intoler-
able for us there. And if that
world does not right this central
and symbolic wrong, it will go un-
der in strife and dirt and renewed
pagan barbarism, as it is already
doing in the once proud and justly
glorious land of the Germans.
*
As a matter of cold fact, the
Arab problem in Palestine is a
farce. Arabs live quite contented- \
ly by the side of Frenchmen and
Italians and negroes in North Af-
rica. Even if the French empire
were smashed these populations
would remain. The empire of the
Arabs from Gibraltar to the twin
rivers is enormous. But for cen-
turies the Arabs have shown no |
vestige of political ability. A bi-
national British dominion or neu-'
tralized state (like Belgium) on
both sides of the Jordan would,
through the work of Jews, enhance
the prestige of the Arabs by vir-
tue of their very collaboration in
such a state. There would then be
one place in which Arabs are neith-
er warlike barbarians, as in the
quasi-independent states, nor sub-
jects held in leash as in North Af-
rica. Arab civilization, utterly
stagnant for centuries, might by
the inspiration of our rebirth take
on some life once more.
But that is not our business,
either. Only Jewish idealists think
that far.
MIAMI
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
What promises to be the begin-
ning of a greater bond of friend-
ship and much needed co-operation
was shown by the
turnout at the
joint meeting
held Tuesday of
the Y. M. and Y.
W. H. A. The
grand turnout
taxed the capac-
ity of the "Y"
clubrooms and undoubtedly grati-
fied the hearts of the men and
women and the boys and girls who
have in the past aided and abetted
the "Y" in their strivings for a
new home that will be able to
house our growing Jewish commu-
nity, soon, we hope, with your co-
operation.
The occasion for this large gath-
ering was the first in a series of
"Y" get-togethers to be held at
three-month intervals.
After welcoming the visitors,
Mrs. Shindel, chairman, presented
Mr. Elry Stone, prominent attor-
ney of Miami Beach and secretary
of the B'nai B'rith organization.
Mr. Stone in his address praised
the fine work of the "Y" and prom-
ised to help in the task of erecting
a new home.
Following Mr. Stone's address a
splendid two hours of diversified
entertainment was impressively
displayed by such entertainers as
BBB, that familiar character and
showman who presided as master
of ceremonies, and who lent his
usual bits of humor and song to
make the evening enjoyable.
He in turn turned the program
over to professor Danny Sheehan,
instructor of the Sheehan Dancing
Studio. Various acts of his annual
spring revue were presented. The
high spot of the evening was the
"Top Hat" number, as displayed
by his pupils, ranging from 7 years
of age to 12 years. That popular
song hit, "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie,"
was then offered by Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Syman's twin 5-year-old
daughters.
In concluding, Mr. Al Rosenfeld,
president of the Men's Division,
thanked the audience for their at-
tendance and stressed the impor-
tance of their aligning themselves
with the work of the "Y," and mak-
ing themselves useful as Jewish
citizens of this community.

CALLING ALL MEMBERS, at-
tention, please: The formation of

quested to participate in this min-
strel, whether talented or not, as

Junior Division Advancing Rapidly
At the regular Monday meeting
of the juniors President Ann Lehr-
man appointed the following mem-
bers to these offices:
Membership chairman, Ruth At-
kins, assisted by Rose Dubler, Pe-
ritz Scheinberg, Al Lewis and My-
ron Markowitz; athletic director,
Al Lewis.
An impromptu program was ar-
ranged by Larry Schwartz, pro-
gram chairman, with the follow-
ing members participating: Miss
Dolly Selby, Evelyn Jacobs, Fanny
Pollack, Esther Cromer and, last,
but not least, one who promises to
be a future hit on radio, Major
"Alawishus" Steinberg, who gave
his interpretation of Major Bowes.
Nat Blumberg was the recipient
of a gold diamondball and chain
for selling the greatest number of
i tickets for the dance held at the
| Merry-Go-Round Club recently,
| with a sale of 60 tickets. Enough
profit was derived to enable the
continuance of the diamondball
team and offer other athletic
events.

Vienna (WNS) Dr. David
Feuchtwang, chief rabbi of Vienna
since 1933, is dead here at the age
of 71. A native of Nikolsberg, Mo-
ravia, he succeeded his father as
rabbi of that town in 1892. In
1903 he was called to Vienna. A
scholar of note, he wrote a num-
ber of important books on Hebrew
literature, biblical customs and As-
syriology. Succeeding to the chief
rabbinate at a critical period, he
fought vigorously to defend Jewish
rights against the rising tide of
anti-Semitism. Despite his oppo-
sition to anti-Semitism in govern-
ment circles, he was decorated by
President Miklas and named in-
spector of Jewish religious educa-
tion in the Vienna high schools.
Diamondball Team Loses Tough
Game
After pitching no hit, no run ball
for eight innings, Hy Sachs weak-
ened in the last inning and pitched
a home run ball to T. Murray of
the Better Foods Store team to
lose by a score of 2 to 0. It was
undoubtedly one of the finest dia-
mondball exhibitions yet displayed
by any of the teams in the Beach
league. The "Y" team, however,
defeated the Miami Federation of
Musicians in a practice game Sun-

ARTISTS-AWAKE AND SING!
By FANNIE HURST
America's distinguished novel-
ist here hails, in an impassion-
ate article, the help Kiven by our
government to the thousands of
Starving artists, writers, musi-
cians, actors and painter-. Miss
Hurst believes that the "vari-
ous federal cultural projects re-
vive hope, ambition and inspira-
tional fervor in the various arts."
The Editor.
Clark Gable, I.oretta Young and
Jack Oakie in its leading roles.
Producer Darryl Zanuck decided
to capitalize on the current public
interest in Kold. Gold has become
more a magic word than ever (lur-
ing the past year. He considered
stacks of manuscrips. Among them
one story stood out as having in-
finitely more possibilities of de-
velopment than the others. Be-
sides, no story had captured such
universal interest as this during
three decades.
The story was "Call of the Wild,"
Jack London't tender but rugged
story of the Alaskan gold rush.
The silver lining to the present
depression has been a long time
showing itself, but finally it is be-
ginning to gleam through the
banked clouds of our troubled hor-
izon. Men and women who have
had their pens, brushes, scalpels,
musical instruments, masks and
wigs rudely struck from their
hands into desuetude are being en-
abled, by the paternalism of the
federal cultural projects, to revive
hope, ambition and inspirational
fervor in their various arts.
Throughout the United States of
America the government is helping
to make possible the renascence of
the theatre. No one who has
watched, with sickness of spirit,
the spectacle of this noble institu-
tion succumbing to such inroads as
the depression, the motion picture,
the radio and what-not, can fail to
thrill to this sudden vitalizing of
the fainting art of the spoken
drama.
If the so-called depression had
developed nothing more than this
"lie streak of silver lining to the
dark clouds, then it would not have
been all in vain. There is no tell-
ing to what this renascence of the
drama may lead. Out of such stuff
may conceivably be born the ulti-
mate dream of the subsidized the-
atre.
In New York City, in smaller
cities, in towns, villages and even
hamlets we have evidence of the
new-born vitality. Thanks to the
governmental leg-up, thousands of
unemployed actors, playwrights
I and countless persons connected
with the theatre in various capac-
ities are once more climbing aboard
| the lugger, with resulting perform-
ances so stimulating that critics
and public alike have their ears
cmked for what new and next in
this adventurous young enterprise,
the WPA theatre movement.
Man may not be able to live by
his cultural development alone, but i
there is no doubt that it is the
cultural vitamins which, even as'
red meat and succulent vegetables,
contribute conspicuously to the de-
velopment of a civilization.
Make no mistake, this present
administration has proved, is" prov-
ing itself and will doubtless con-
tinue to prove itself alertly aware
of the importance of this kind of
mental vitality which resides be-
hind the frontal bone. Do not for-
get that for years American sculp-
tors, actors, authors, painters, men
and women in the vocational arts.
have been practically starving to
death. When the wheels of in-
dustry slowed down, the wheels of
the arts stopped. The administra-
tion's measures to meet this paral-
ysis have been challenging.
Painters have been put to work,
sculptors, designers, etchers, water
coluri^ts, photographers.' Public
buildings are simultaneously be-
coming the beneficiaries of the de-
pression and of the latent talent
of the nation.
Murals and friezes, the result of
WPA federal art projects, relate
their narratives not only in stone,
but in symbolism. They symbol-
ize the nation's call to art.
Writers cannot so easily be reg-
imented. But as stop-gap thou-
sands of authors are being assigned
to catalogic or research work;

Los Angeles Refuses to Pi.y for
Sending Olympic Flag to Reich
Los Angeles (WNS) By the
narrow margin of two votes the
I.os Angeles city council rejected
an ordinance which would have ap.
propriated $2,000 to finance a Ber-
lin trip for William May Garland,
senior American member of the In.
ternational Olympic Committee,
who is carrying the Olympic games
flag from Los Angeles to Berlin.
The vote on the resolution was 10
in favor and 3 against, 12 affirm-
atives being needed. The opposi-
tion was led by Councilmen Parley
P. Christensen and James M. Hyde,
both of whom bitterly criticized
N'azi Germany and declared that
their constituents opposed the
spending of municipal funds for
this purpose. Mr. Garland is al-
ready on the way to Germany at
his own expense.
