JOINT DISTRIBUTION GIVES Tel Aviv Urges
LARGE SUM FOR GERMAN JEWS Morejoidfers
THE WORLD'S WINDOW
New York (WNS)The sum of
S300.000 was contributed by the
Joint Distribution Committee dur-
ing 11)35 for the rehabilitation of
German Jewry, thus bringing the
total of the committee's expendi-
tures in behalf of the Jews in Ger-
many to $1,000,000 since 1933, Jo-
seph C. Hyman, executive director,
declares in the committee's annual
report, the first section of which
has just been made public. The re-
port cited unification of German
Jewry in the reich representation
of Jews of Germany and its op-
erating agency, the Central Com-
mittee for Relief and Reconstruc-
tion, through which the JDC's aid
program was carried out.
Jewish emigration from Germany
in 1935 was 16,525, according to
the report, while 65,144 emigrants
were helped by agencies subven-
tioned by the JDC during 1933-35.
During 1935 3,982 persons were
helped to emigrate to Palestine;
9,998 persons were aided, those
of foreign birth to leave Germany
for their native lands, and native
Germans to move from one Ger-
man olty to another, and 2,544 were
ix-lped to emigrate to European
and overseas countries. Of these
927 went to European countries
and 1,617 to North and South
Africa. The report points out that
rigid immigration curbs in coun-
tries offering the best prospects
for permanent settlement were the
chief obstacles to large scale emi-
gration.
The report also showed that 72
per cent of the men and 80 per
cent of the women undergoing vo-
cational retraining in Germany are
studying agriculture, while in re-
training centers outside of Ger-
many the figures were 84 per cent
for men and 55 per cent for wom-
en. At the beginning of 1935 4,005
persons were receiving retraining
in various centers in Germany,
; Denmark, France, Italy, Jugosla-
via, I.ituania, Luxembourg, Poland,
Czechoslovakia and Memel, while
during the year 2,135 either com-
pleted their courses or were en-
abled to emigrate. On December
31, 1935, 4,768 were under train-
ing, 3,637 in Germany and 1,181
outside of the reich.
During 1935 20,000 Jewish chil-
dren between 6 and 14, twice the
1934 number, were cared for in
special Jewish schools at a cost of
374,000 marks, out of a total edu-
cational expenditure of 543,650
marks. Adult education courses,
training adult instructors and pub-
lication of textbooks cost 39,487
marks. The number of free and
co-operative loan banks for Jew-
ish economic assistance increased
from 45 to 60 in 1935. These banks
have a total capital of 1,200,000
marks. The various agencies of
the central committee gave aid to
62,000 Jewish families, or 45 per
cent of the total Jewish population,
in 1935. 75,000 Jews were cared
for by the special Jewish winter re-
lief fund.
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The municipal administration of
the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv has
appealed to the government to
.strengthen its forces on the Tel
I Aviv-Jaffa border, following the
I bomb outrage which occurred at a
| Jewish school near the Arab city,
i Telegrams protesting the outrage
| were sent to High Commissioner
|Wauehope, to the district commis-
sioner and to the police command-
I ant.
The explosion of a bomb in the
Brenner quarter of Tel Aviv, not
far from the scene of the school
bombing, created great tension,
causing crowds of Jews and Arabs
to gather at the scene. No damage
was done by the bomb, and the
crowds were dispersed by the po-
lice, who arrested two Arabs on
suspicion.
A protest against the bombing
of the Jewish school in Tel Aviv,
sent in the name of "the Jewish
women who assisted their hus-
bands, brothers and sons in their
self-imposed restraint during a
hundred days of brutal tenor," was
cabled to the British colonial sec-
retary and the heads of leading
English women's societies by the
i Council of Jewish Women's Organ-
! izations in Palestine.

Synagog Is Safe
Despite Battle
Church Pleads
For Freedom
Barcelona (WNS)The famous
old synagogue in Cordoba, which
was returned to the Jews on
March 30, 1935, by the Spanish
government during the celebration
of the 800th anniversary of the
birth of Moses Maimonides, is now
being used as a temporary hospital
by the Spanish rebels, who con-
trol Cordoba, according to reports
received here. Cordoba is the
birthplace of Maimonides. Despite
the fact that the synagogue is in
the direct line of fire, it is not ex-
pected to be damaged, because
both the rebels and the govern-
ment forces are making special ef-
forts to preserve ancient land-
marks.
Toscanini to Conduct Palestine
Orchestra
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The Palestine Philharmonic Or-
chestra will begin its first season
this year under the baton of Ar-
turo Toscanini, it is announced
here. Among the other conductors
will be Issay Dobrowen, formerly
of San Francisco, and Hans W.
Steinberg, former director of the
opera in Frankfurt, Germany. The
season's program will consist of 26
concerts, of which 10 will be given \
Plymouth, Mass. (WNS) -From
this old New England town where
the Pilgrim Fathers landed in 1620
has come a call for a united move-
ment of American and British Con-
gregationalists to fight organized
threats to political, civil and reli-
gious liberty. In a letter sent by
the minister, clerk and members of
the Church of the Pilgrimage, de-
scendant of the first Protestant
church in America, to the Plymouth
and District Congregational Coun-
cil in England, it was declared
that "the time has certainly come
for a searching and earnest reded-
ication to the principles for which
the great martyrs of our faith gave
their all. Political, academic and
religious freedom, which we
thought was at last achieved, has
suffered new assaults and fresh de-
feats throughout the civilized
world. Only a few nations remain, I
England and America among them,
where our ideals of freedom are
still cherished and protected. Even |
in America there is an alarming j
tendency to rob mankind of the !
right to write or teach the truth
according to the highest dictates
of the mind and spirit."
In an appeal broadcast through.
out the world, protesting against
! the school bombing, Mayer Meier
Diezengoff accused Arab political
leaders of encouraging "Murder-
ous assaults upon children that arc
! evoking to civilized mankind and
..ll for the condemnation of all
decent men and women." Refer-
| ring to earlier attcmepts to set
I tire to a home for babies in Jeru-
salem and to bomb a Jewish kin-
dergarten in Ness Ziona, Mayor
Diezengoff charged that the per-
petrators of these crimes "have not
been denounced or discouraged by
the Arab leaders, who profess to
be fighting for freedom and who
insist that their political strike is
peaceful."
In July, 1988, 1 worked in Paris
mi a Franco-American Jewish com-
mittee for the relief of our fugi-
tives from Germany who were
crossing the frontier at the rate
Of several hundreds a day. Among
the consultants of that committee
I was a lawyer from Cologne, an
able and now grimly realistic man.
Certain measures were proposed in
the committee to which an aged
member offered the objection that
these measures, were thev to be
come known, might do harm to th.-
Jews of Germany. Our Coloj
lawyer said with a lack of empha-
sis more terrible than any out-
burst would have been: "You can-
not harm the German Jews any
more." We all fell silent. I
thought of the line of Bunyan: "Ho
that is down need fear no fall."
Well, the meaning here was an
altogether different, a wholly des-
perate one. You could not rob the
German Jews of any hope. They
were hopeless.
They are, if possible, more hope-
less today. A chapter is closing.
A group of our people, as such, is
doomed. And in the midst of that
doom, under the lash of hunger and
obloquy, of bitter need and bitterer
defamation, they are upholding the
supremacy of the triumphant mind;
they are today, on their terrific
yom ha-din, an example to world
Jewry of moral and spiritual mo-
bilization. They are Jewishly and
intellectually more productive to-
day than the free Jewries gf the
west.
tions their theatre and their music
to which by Nazi decree, no Aryans
are admitted, 80 that the sale and
distribution of tickets must be rig.
lorously guarded. The slightest in-
fringement of police regulations
would mean destruction.
They have their books. The Jue-
diische Buch-Vereinigung, a co-op-
erative enterprise, began its series
of publications this winter with
Arthur Eloesser's excellent "Von
Ghetto nach Europa," a history of
the intellectual processes by which
German Jewry entered European
civilization between Mendelssohn
and Heine. But the triumph of
German Ji wry over !ts fate is sym-
bolized by the publishing house
founded and sustained by that great
philanthropist, Zionist and scholar,
Salmann Schocken. This extraor-
dinary undertaking has put out
during this spring of 1936 the first
two volumes of a new and highly
original "History of Israel," by
Elias Auerbach; a great anthology
jof Jewish material found in Ger-
man poetry, drama and fiction,
called "The Sevenfold Light," an
important work of Jewish philos-
ophy, "Tradition and World Crisis,"
by Paul Amann, a new thin paper
edition in one volume of the beau-
tiful collection of haggadic mate-
rial by M. .1. Bin Gorion, formerly
published in six volumes, the col-
lected letters (large octavo Pp.
713) of the late Franz Rosenzweig,
a new and cheaper edition of the
translation of the scriptures by
Martin Buber and Rosenzweig, new
editions off all the works of Mar-
tin Buber and the essays of Dr. Leo
Baeck, as well as the three vol-
umes of the Jewish writings of the
late eminent neo-Kantian philoso-
pher, Hermann Cohen.
In a letter to Isaac Ben Zvl, head
of the Vaad Leumi, High Commis-
sioner Wauchope condemned the
bombing of the Jewish school and
expressed a feeling of abhorrence
at the attempt on the lives of Jew-
ish school children.
Athletes Object
To "Heil Hitler"
in Tel Aviv, eight in Jereusalem
and eight in Haifa.
Berlin (WNS)An open breach
between the American athletes and
I Nazi officials assigned to the
American camp in the Olympic vil-
I lage was narrowly averted when
the Americans resented the inces-
sant business of "Heil Hitler."
Greeted with the Nazi salute by
their hosts on the slightest occa-
sion, the Americans finally became
tired of it and demanded an end to
it. A compromise was reached
whereby the Americans use onlj
a sort of military salute.
Let us get at the facts. The cir-
culation of the Juedische Rund-
schau, the extraordinarily able
Zionist bi-weekly, has quadrupled
since 1938. People in the extremes
of poverty join, two or three fam-
ilies, to afford a single subscrip-
tion or the few pfennig to buy earn
number separately. The circula-
tion of the Israelitische.s Familien-
blatt of Hamburg and of the Zeit-
ung of the Central Verein have ris-
en ;.i lesser but also enormous pro-
portion. And note that these pa-
nels manage to sustain ilv. mselves
under the Nazi regime only by con.
fining themselves to Jewish news
and to preoccupation with Jewish
literature, art and philosophy, with
Zionist politics and with Palestine.
But that is what these German
Jews desire. They have been awak-
ened. They are reborn. Men and
women who until 1933 had no Jew-
ish knowledge and few Jewish in-
terests are rebuilding their inner
lives and the lives of their children
through the historic and living cul-
ture "f Israel.
They have their press. They
ha>- 'hrough the cultural associn-
I omit mention of the truly mag-
nificent contributions to technical
Jewish scholarship issued by the
Institute for Research in the his-
tory of Jewish poetry and philos-
ophy, founded by Schocken in 1930,
and hasten to call special atten-
tion to the two series of pamphlets
and small books costing respective-
ly 50 pfennig and one mark 25
apiece that are both learnedly and
exquisitely placing into the hands
of German Jews and German Jew-
ish youth the treasures of our past
and of our present. Here are Jere-
miah and Jehuda Halevi, Buber and
Agnon, Leo Baeck and the life of
Josephus, proverbs and tales and
legends and histories, an anthol-
ogy of Yemenite song and story,
selections from the late Franz
Kafka and the living Jewish poets,
Karl Wolfskehl and Ludwig
Strauss, selections from the Ma'-
aseh book, from Talmud and Mid-
rash, from the writings of Hermann
Cohen and the Rambam and Bialik;
here are Yiddish folk songs and
the autobiography of Salomon
Maimon and the narrative of his
intercession with Caligula of I'hilo
of Alexandria.

Modernizing?
Talk about your theories of modernity ... we must doff
our hats to the officers of one of the leading synagogues of
a large Northern city who blatantly broadcasts the advantage
of belonging to this venerable house of worship.
Advertising in one of the large Yiddish dailies, the offi-
cers set forth not the spiritual values, not the ability of its
rabbi, the appealing qualities and beauty of the chanting of
its Cantor nay, these things are too little to be even men-
tioned they mean nothing at all in the category of this
modernized appeal.
Only $1.00 per month for dues and you can join this
synagogue with a splendid building social affairs galore
are promised you and the most amazing attraction yet is
held out as the inducement par excellence .. FREE BURIAL
PRIVILEGES FREE GRAVES FREE THIS AND
THAT.
At first one might think he was reading one of Octavus
Roy Cohen's stories much to our sorrow it is a reality
. '. not a figment of one's imagination.
We think that it is high time that an appeal be made to
the spiritual side of the Jew when he is asked to join the
synagogue the heritage which has been handed down to
us throughout these long years of suffering and travail in
which our ancestors did not hesitate to sacrifice their very-
all and laid down their lives for Kiddush Hashem should be
brought home to us, and that, and that alone, should be suffi-
cient reason for the Jew to join his brethren in the support of
the synagogue and the perpetuation of Jewish ideals. It is
high time that those in charge of synagogues realize that
Judaism is a vita! living force, a motivating factor in the
life of everv Jew ... the time for bringing bargains in ceme-
tery lots has long passed ... the time for holding old-fash-
ioned "huliankes" on the cemetery has been a matter of past
history and not that of tht living present.
Jewry of Baltimore, once famed as the Jerusalem of
America, justly proud of its splendid Jewish educational in-
stitutions, its rabbis, cantors and splendid synagogues, should
not permit one of its o!d synagogues to degrade Jewish
ideals by advertising a campaign of the character it is now
indulging in. .
It may be modern ... it is not American certainly it
is not Jewish.
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Judge Stegeman of the munici-
pal court of Miami Beach, in ad-
dressing a capacity audience at
the "Y" Junior
division meeting
Monday, said a
community center
such as we are
striving for will
not only serve as
a meeting place
for our people,
but will afford a much needed
source of strength to combat the
many attacks directed against our
people. With over 10,000 Jews in
Dade County to approach, plus the
wealthy Jews who visit here an-
nually, a concerted drive should be
undertaken with all working in
unison to ultimately achieve our
desired goal.

ed to the public Wednesday, Au-

at 137 N. E. Nineteenth st. The
change in location from the club-
rooms to Kaplan Hall was brought
about by the many who would like
to attend this occasion and have
more suitable and spacious quar-
ters to do BO. No admission will
be charged, so make it a point to

Chief Forester of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund in Jerusalem
Editor's Note: Throughout the
nation a campaign is now in
progress, under the auspices of
the Jewish National Fund, to
raise contributions for the plant-
ing of 100,000 new trees in Pal-
estine to replace those wantonly
destroyed by Arab vandals. The
author of this article is the chief
reforestation expert of the Keren
Kayemeth headquarters in Jeru-
salem. He gives a touching and
vivid pen picture of what trans-
pired when ax and fire descend-
ed upon the silent sentinels of
Jewish progress in Palestine

Traditional Wailing Wall Ceremony
Cancelled Because of Riots
Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The traditional pilgrimage which
Jews throughout Palestine and
from many parts of the world
make to the Wailing Wall on the
Oth of Ab to memorialize the de-
struction of the Temple by the Ro-
mans has been cancelled this year
owing to the uncertain state of se-
curity in the old city.
Larry Welch, who was to have
addressed the Y. W. H. A. at their
meeting Tuesday in regard to the
minstrel, will do so next Tuesday,
due to the storm that fortunately
n -sed Miami. Harry Smart, care-
taker of the "Y." had his hands
full putting up the shutters at the
"Y." while those inclosed were do-
ing the shuddering. Over 45 mem-
bers have already registered to
participate, with the deadline set
at 70. If interested register either
with Mrs. Shindel or Ida Engler
of the Women's Division.
The Yishuv in Palestine is pass-
ing through very distressful days.
The desert wages war upon civili-
zation. Its destroying hand is
stretched out against the Jew and
all his works in Palestine. Even
the tree of the forest does not es-
cape its ravages.
In the dense green woods which
. have transformed wastelands in
Palestine, the desert sees a sym-
; bol of the creative powers of the
Jew, a seal of the covenant of the
Jew with the land of his fathers.
And so the henchmen who do the
bidding of the forces of destruc-
tion have not spared the pines ami
the cedars while setting fire to
corn on the stalk and harvest.- in
the threshing floors, while uproot-
ing orange groves and vineyards.
From caves and clefts in the rocks
they spring out to burn our trees
with fire and to attack their faith-
ful protectors, the watchmen who
stand on guard over them day and
night.
Seven times the woods of Mish-
mar Ha'emek have been fired; the
Balfour forest at Ginegar four
times; the graves of Ben Shemen
twice. Only because the Jewish set-
tlers have hastened to put out the
flames at the nisk of their lives
from the incendiaries who lie in
ambush, have no more than 37,000
trees in the Keren Kayemeth for-
ests, only 2 per cent of all their
trees, been destroyed. Yet let not
the number seem small. Actually,
in terms of all the labor and funds
devoted to those 37,000 trees until
they grew and flourished, their de.
struction is a very serious matter.
For us those burnt trees at Mish-
mar Ha'emek and Ginegar and Ben
Shemen are even more than tokens
of the renewed fertility of our old
Palestinian earth. They are sym-
bols of the great men in Israel
and other nations in whose name
they were planted and whose deeds
they memorialize. Now that those
forests have been subjected to or-
deal by fire, they have become dou-
bly precious in our sight.
Trees are among the most vita!
achievements of our agricultural
settlement in Palestine, of our re-
vived national being. The losses
of life and property caused to the
Yishuv will be made good doubly
and trebly by the Jewish people.
The storm will pass over at last,
and Jewish effort in Palestine will
be increased and intensified. A
great new era will follow of immi-
gration and land-buying, of plow-
ing and building and planting. Tree
planting will have an important
place among all these creative un-
dertakings. The Keren Kayemeth
therefore calls for the planting of
Klli.oilu trees on Tammuz 20 (July
10), the death anniversary of The-
odor Ilerzl, to compensate it-
c.-ts for the burning of 37,000 trees
in the spring of this year.

Plain Talk
! There a Jewish Vote?
By A I, !'.. \ i
Paul Block, publisher of news-
papers (and a Jew) is troubled on
account of Governor Lehman of
New York running for re-election.
He thinks Mr. Lehman ought to
be defeated. He writes an editorial
on the matter, and so hot docs he
(eel about it that he paid to have
the editorial printed as an adver-
tisement in the New York Times.
He wonders whether Lehman
was drafted tor the nomination be-
cause "they believe he can deliver
the vote of the people of the Jew-
ish faith, of whom there are close
to two millions In Greater New,
York."

In fact, other Jews felt the same

"He has all the Jewish dreams."
Not that we expected anything
of special Jewish benefit from Mc.

London (WNS-Palcor Agency)
Rumors of the postponement of the
World Jewish Congress were cat-
egorically denied by Dr. Stephen
S. Wise, president of the American
Jewish Congress, who announced
Friday, July 31, 1H36
that the opening of the congress
would take place on that date as
previously arranged. After visit-
ing London and Poland, Dr. Wise
said, he felt that immediate con-
vocation of the congress was im-

Jewish situation. The executive
committee of the congress will
meet in Geneva on August 5th,
three days before the first session
of the congress begins.

Religion Begins at
Home
- But Often Ends With the Promoter
A dubious promoter, to be successful, depends upon
a good '"dress up" for his schemes. One of his fa-
vorites these days is a pood will appeal. "Good
will," tied up with a religious name or that of a
synagogue, is often a "winner"for him.
Often playing upon the good name and works of
legitimate religious agencies, his telephone and
personal solicitors sell advertising or solicit funds
all in the name of "religion." How little actually
goes to existing, not fanciful, religious institutions
he does not reveal.
For the sake of real religious institutions in Greater
.Miami, which suffer when unscrupulous promoters
take funds from kindly but uninformed donors,
you should first investigate carefully all such ap-
peals.
This paper has the facts available without charge
to the public. Get the facts before you give. Be
sure bona fide religious institutions and not a slick
promoter get the benefit of your dollars.
Call any one of Greater Miami's synagogues to
make sure.

I9S6 Price Five Cents JOINT DISTRIBUTION GIVES Tel Aviv Urges LARGE SUM FOR GERMAN JEWS Morejoidfers THE WORLD'S WINDOW New York (WNS)—The sum of S300.000 was contributed by the Joint Distribution Committee during 11)35 for the rehabilitation of German Jewry, thus bringing the total of the committee's expenditures in behalf of the Jews in Germany to $1,000,000 since 1933, Joseph C. Hyman, executive director, declares in the committee's annual report, the first section of which has just been made public. The report cited unification of German Jewry in the reich representation of Jews of Germany and its operating agency, the Central Committee for Relief and Reconstruction, through which the JDC's aid program was carried out. Jewish emigration from Germany in 1935 was 16,525, according to the report, while 65,144 emigrants were helped by agencies subventioned by the JDC during 1933-35. During 1935 3,982 persons were helped to emigrate to Palestine; 9,998 persons were aided, those of foreign birth to leave Germany for their native lands, and native Germans to move from one German olty to another, and 2,544 were ix-lped to emigrate to European and overseas countries. Of these 927 went to European countries and 1,617 to North and South Africa. The report points out that rigid immigration curbs in countries offering the best prospects for permanent settlement were the chief obstacles to large scale emigration. The report also showed that 72 per cent of the men and 80 per cent of the women undergoing vocational retraining in Germany are studying agriculture, while in retraining centers outside of Germany the figures were 84 per cent for men and 55 per cent for women. At the beginning of 1935 4,005 persons were receiving retraining in various centers in Germany, ; Denmark, France, Italy, Jugoslavia, I.ituania, Luxembourg, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Memel, while during the year 2,135 either completed their courses or were enabled to emigrate. On December 31, 1935, 4,768 were under training, 3,637 in Germany and 1,181 outside of the reich. During 1935 20,000 Jewish children between 6 and 14, twice the 1934 number, were cared for in special Jewish schools at a cost of 374,000 marks, out of a total educational expenditure of 543,650 marks. Adult education courses, training adult instructors and publication of textbooks cost 39,487 marks. The number of free and co-operative loan banks for Jewish economic assistance increased from 45 to 60 in 1935. These banks have a total capital of 1,200,000 marks. The various agencies of the central committee gave aid to 62,000 Jewish families, or 45 per cent of the total Jewish population, in 1935. 75,000 Jews were cared for by the special Jewish winter relief fund. Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency) The municipal administration of the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv has appealed to the government to .strengthen its forces on the Tel I Aviv-Jaffa border, following the I bomb outrage which occurred at a | Jewish school near the Arab city, i Telegrams protesting the outrage | were sent to High Commissioner |Wauehope, to the district commissioner and to the police commandI ant. The explosion of a bomb in the Brenner quarter of Tel Aviv, not far from the scene of the school bombing, created great tension, causing crowds of Jews and Arabs to gather at the scene. No damage was done by the bomb, and the crowds were dispersed by the police, who arrested two Arabs on suspicion. A protest against the bombing of the Jewish school in Tel Aviv, sent in the name of "the Jewish women who assisted their husbands, brothers and sons in their self-imposed restraint during a hundred days of brutal tenor," was cabled to the British colonial secretary and the heads of leading English women's societies by the i Council of Jewish Women's Organ! izations in Palestine.

Synagog Is Safe Despite Battle Church Pleads For Freedom Barcelona (WNS)—The famous old synagogue in Cordoba, which was returned to the Jews on March 30, 1935, by the Spanish government during the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the birth of Moses Maimonides, is now being used as a temporary hospital by the Spanish rebels, who control Cordoba, according to reports received here. Cordoba is the birthplace of Maimonides. Despite the fact that the synagogue is in the direct line of fire, it is not expected to be damaged, because both the rebels and the government forces are making special efforts to preserve ancient landmarks. Toscanini to Conduct Palestine Orchestra Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency) The Palestine Philharmonic Orchestra will begin its first season this year under the baton of Arturo Toscanini, it is announced here. Among the other conductors will be Issay Dobrowen, formerly of San Francisco, and Hans W. Steinberg, former director of the opera in Frankfurt, Germany. The season's program will consist of 26 concerts, of which 10 will be given \ Plymouth, Mass. (WNS) -From this old New England town where the Pilgrim Fathers landed in 1620 has come a call for a united movement of American and British Congregationalists to fight organized threats to political, civil and religious liberty. In a letter sent by the minister, clerk and members of the Church of the Pilgrimage, descendant of the first Protestant church in America, to the Plymouth and District Congregational Council in England, it was declared that "the time has certainly come for a searching and earnest rededication to the principles for which the great martyrs of our faith gave their all. Political, academic and religious freedom, which we thought was at last achieved, has suffered new assaults and fresh defeats throughout the civilized world. Only a few nations remain, I England and America among them, where our ideals of freedom are still cherished and protected. Even | in America there is an alarming j tendency to rob mankind of the right to write or teach the truth according to the highest dictates of the mind and spirit." In an appeal broadcast through. out the world, protesting against the school bombing, Mayer Meier Diezengoff accused Arab political leaders of encouraging "Murderous assaults upon children that arc evoking to civilized mankind and ..ll for the condemnation of all decent men and women." Refer| ring to earlier attcmepts to set I tire to a home for babies in Jerusalem and to bomb a Jewish kindergarten in Ness Ziona, Mayor Diezengoff charged that the perpetrators of these crimes "have not been denounced or discouraged by the Arab leaders, who profess to be fighting for freedom and who insist that their political strike is peaceful." In July, 1988, 1 worked in Paris mi a Franco-American Jewish committee for the relief of our fugitives from Germany who were crossing the frontier at the rate Of several hundreds a day. Among the consultants of that committee I was a lawyer from Cologne, an able and now grimly realistic man. Certain measures were proposed in the committee to which an aged member offered the objection that these measures, were thev to be come known, might do harm to th.Jews of Germany. Our Coloj lawyer said with a lack of emphasis more terrible than any outburst would have been: "You cannot harm the German Jews any more." We all fell silent. I thought of the line of Bunyan: "Ho that is down need fear no fall." Well, the meaning here was an altogether different, a wholly desperate one. You could not rob the German Jews of any hope. They were hopeless. They are, if possible, more hopeless today. A chapter is closing. A group of our people, as such, is doomed. And in the midst of that doom, under the lash of hunger and obloquy, of bitter need and bitterer defamation, they are upholding the supremacy of the triumphant mind; they are today, on their terrific yom ha-din, an example to world Jewry of moral and spiritual mobilization. They are Jewishly and intellectually more productive today than the free Jewries gf the west. tions their theatre and their music to which by Nazi decree, no Aryans are admitted, 80 that the sale and distribution of tickets must be rig. lorously guarded. The slightest infringement of police regulations would mean destruction. They have their books. The Juediische Buch-Vereinigung, a co-operative enterprise, began its series of publications this winter with Arthur Eloesser's excellent "Von Ghetto nach Europa," a history of the intellectual processes by which German Jewry entered European civilization between Mendelssohn and Heine. But the triumph of German Ji wry over !ts fate is symbolized by the publishing house founded and sustained by that great philanthropist, Zionist and scholar, Salmann Schocken. This extraordinary undertaking has put out during this spring of 1936 the first two volumes of a new and highly original "History of Israel," by Elias Auerbach; a great anthology jof Jewish material found in German poetry, drama and fiction, called "The Sevenfold Light," an important work of Jewish philosophy, "Tradition and World Crisis," by Paul Amann, a new thin paper edition in one volume of the beautiful collection of haggadic material by M. .1. Bin Gorion, formerly published in six volumes, the collected letters (large octavo Pp. 713) of the late Franz Rosenzweig, a new and cheaper edition of the translation of the scriptures by Martin Buber and Rosenzweig, new editions off all the works of Martin Buber and the essays of Dr. Leo Baeck, as well as the three volumes of the Jewish writings of the late eminent neo-Kantian philosopher, Hermann Cohen. In a letter to Isaac Ben Zvl, head of the Vaad Leumi, High Commissioner Wauchope condemned the bombing of the Jewish school and expressed a feeling of abhorrence at the attempt on the lives of Jewish school children. Athletes Object To "Heil Hitler" in Tel Aviv, eight in Jereusalem and eight in Haifa. Berlin (WNS)—An open breach between the American athletes and I Nazi officials assigned to the American camp in the Olympic vilI lage was narrowly averted when the Americans resented the incessant business of "Heil Hitler." Greeted with the Nazi salute by their hosts on the slightest occasion, the Americans finally became tired of it and demanded an end to it. A compromise was reached whereby the Americans use onlj a sort of military salute. Let us get at the facts. The circulation of the Juedische Rundschau, the extraordinarily able Zionist bi-weekly, has quadrupled since 1938. People in the extremes of poverty join, two or three families, to afford a single subscription or the few pfennig to buy earn number separately. The circulation of the Israelitische.s Familienblatt of Hamburg and of the Zeitung of the Central Verein have risen ;.i lesser but also enormous proportion. And note that these panels manage to sustain ilv. mselves under the Nazi regime only by con. fining themselves to Jewish news and to preoccupation with Jewish literature, art and philosophy, with Zionist politics and with Palestine. But that is what these German Jews desire. They have been awakened. They are reborn. Men and women who until 1933 had no Jewish knowledge and few Jewish interests are rebuilding their inner lives and the lives of their children through the historic and living culture "f Israel. They have their press. They ha>'hrough the cultural associnI omit mention of the truly magnificent contributions to technical Jewish scholarship issued by the Institute for Research in the history of Jewish poetry and philosophy, founded by Schocken in 1930, and hasten to call special attention to the two series of pamphlets and small books costing respectively 50 pfennig and one mark 25 apiece that are both learnedly and exquisitely placing into the hands of German Jews and German Jewish youth the treasures of our past and of our present. Here are Jeremiah and Jehuda Halevi, Buber and Agnon, Leo Baeck and the life of Josephus, proverbs and tales and legends and histories, an anthology of Yemenite song and story, selections from the late Franz Kafka and the living Jewish poets, Karl Wolfskehl and Ludwig Strauss, selections from the Ma'aseh book, from Talmud and Midrash, from the writings of Hermann Cohen and the Rambam and Bialik; here are Yiddish folk songs and the autobiography of Salomon Maimon and the narrative of his intercession with Caligula of I'hilo of Alexandria.

Talk about your theories of modernity ... we must doff our hats to the officers of one of the leading synagogues of a large Northern city who blatantly broadcasts the advantage of belonging to this venerable house of worship. Advertising in one of the large Yiddish dailies, the officers set forth not the spiritual values, not the ability of its rabbi, the appealing qualities and beauty of the chanting of its Cantor nay, these things are too little to be even mentioned they mean nothing at all in the category of this modernized appeal. Only $1.00 per month for dues and you can join this synagogue with a splendid building social affairs galore are promised you and the most amazing attraction yet is held out as the inducement par excellence .. FREE BURIAL PRIVILEGES FREE GRAVES FREE THIS AND THAT. At first one might think he was reading one of Octavus Roy Cohen's stories much to our sorrow it is a reality '. not a figment of one's imagination. We think that it is high time that an appeal be made to the spiritual side of the Jew when he is asked to join the synagogue the heritage which has been handed down to us throughout these long years of suffering and travail in which our ancestors did not hesitate to sacrifice their veryall and laid down their lives for Kiddush Hashem should be brought home to us, and that, and that alone, should be sufficient reason for the Jew to join his brethren in the support of the synagogue and the perpetuation of Jewish ideals. It is high time that those in charge of synagogues realize that Judaism is a vita! living force, a motivating factor in the life of everv Jew ... the time for bringing bargains in cemetery lots has long passed ... the time for holding old-fashioned "huliankes" on the cemetery has been a matter of past history and not that of tht living present. Jewry of Baltimore, once famed as the Jerusalem of America, justly proud of its splendid Jewish educational institutions, its rabbis, cantors and splendid synagogues, should not permit one of its o!d synagogues to degrade Jewish ideals by advertising a campaign of the character it is now indulging in. It may be modern ... it is not American certainly it is not Jewish. By HARRY SCHWARTZ Judge Stegeman of the municipal court of Miami Beach, in addressing a capacity audience at the "Y" Junior division meeting Monday, said a community center such as we are striving for will not only serve as a meeting place for our people, but will afford a much needed source of strength to combat the many attacks directed against our people.

Chief Forester of the Jewish National Fund in Jerusalem Editor's Note: Throughout the nation a campaign is now in progress, under the auspices of the Jewish National Fund, to raise contributions for the planting of 100,000 new trees in Palestine to replace those wantonly destroyed by Arab vandals. The author of this article is the chief reforestation expert of the Keren Kayemeth headquarters in Jerusalem. He gives a touching and vivid pen picture of what transpired when ax and fire descended upon the silent sentinels of Jewish progress in Palestine— TREES. The World's Window (Continued from r*s-3 D And what have we—free, prosperous and nearly five million Strong? What have we in comparison? How are we carrying on? How are we disseminating our treasures, the contents of that Judaism as a civilization for which Mordecai Kaplan has so learnedly pleaded? What have we—at twenty cents to half a dollar—to place in the hands of our people and of our children and into the hands (still possible here) of those Christian neighbors who do not desire to remain an a state of prejudiced ignorance concerning us ? We have nothing like this Jewish series of Schocken or the Hebrew Everyman's library, the admirable Sefrih l'Khol, published at Tel-Aviv. What we? And where is %  ur Salmann Schocken and our ScuockenYerlag? The German Jews arc carrying on ... I throw out this suggestion, this reproach, ihis query without any other hope than that here and there a few quiet, thoughtful people may keep these matters iin their minds. Traditional Wailing Wall Ceremony Cancelled Because of Riots Jerusalem (WNS-Palcor Agency) The traditional pilgrimage which Jews throughout Palestine and from many parts of the world make to the Wailing Wall on the Oth of Ab to memorialize the destruction of the Temple by the Romans has been cancelled this year owing to the uncertain state of security in the old city. Larry Welch, who was to have addressed the Y. W. H. A. at their meeting Tuesday in regard to the minstrel, will do so next Tuesday, due to the storm that fortunately n -sed Miami. Harry Smart, caretaker of the "Y." had his hands full putting up the shutters at the "Y." while those inclosed were doing the shuddering. Over 45 members have already registered to participate, with the deadline set at 70. If interested register either with Mrs. Shindel or Ida Engler of the Women's Division. The Yishuv in Palestine is passing through very distressful days. The desert wages war upon civilization. Its destroying hand is stretched out against the Jew and all his works in Palestine. Even the tree of the forest does not escape its ravages. In the dense green woods which have transformed wastelands in Palestine, the desert sees a sym; bol of the creative powers of the Jew, a seal of the covenant of the Jew with the land of his fathers. And so the henchmen who do the bidding of the forces of destruction have not spared the pines ami the cedars while setting fire to corn on the stalk and harvest.in the threshing floors, while uprooting orange groves and vineyards. From caves and clefts in the rocks they spring out to burn our trees with fire and to attack their faithful protectors, the watchmen who stand on guard over them day and night. Seven times the woods of Mishmar Ha'emek have been fired; the Balfour forest at Ginegar four times; the graves of Ben Shemen twice. Only because the Jewish settlers have hastened to put out the flames at the nisk of their lives from the incendiaries who lie in ambush, have no more than 37,000 trees in the Keren Kayemeth forests, only 2 per cent of all their trees, been destroyed. Yet let not the number seem small. Actually, in terms of all the labor and funds devoted to those 37,000 trees until they grew and flourished, their de. struction is a very serious matter. For us those burnt trees at Mishmar Ha'emek and Ginegar and Ben Shemen are even more than tokens of the renewed fertility of our old Palestinian earth. They are symbols of the great men in Israel and other nations in whose name they were planted and whose deeds they memorialize. Now that those forests have been subjected to ordeal by fire, they have become doubly precious in our sight. Trees are among the most vita! achievements of our agricultural settlement in Palestine, of our revived national being. The losses of life and property caused to the Yishuv will be made good doubly and trebly by the Jewish people. The storm will pass over at last, and Jewish effort in Palestine will be increased and intensified. A great new era will follow of immigration and land-buying, of plowing and building and planting. Tree planting will have an important place among all these creative undertakings. The Keren Kayemeth therefore calls for the planting of Klli.oilu trees on Tammuz 20 (July 10), the death anniversary of Theodor Ilerzl, to compensate itc.-ts for the burning of 37,000 trees in the spring of this year. Batting Ily Sachs from the box for the first time since pitching for the "Y," the Migroco team defeated our diamondball team by the lopsided score of 13 to IS. The absence of Bernie Frank and Leo l.ipowsky, two veterans of tie team, no doubt helped the cause of the opponents. Abe Weiner, who went into the game to relieve Sachs, found himself in need of relief immediately when the Migroco boys garnered a grand total of seven runs on five hits and two errors. The Junior Division has again captured the spotlight by their rapidly increasing membership and their presentation of interesting programs each Monday under the head of their program chairman, Larry Schwartz. at the Victoria Hospital. Hanna Shier and Al Pallot just returned from their summer vacations and would like to tell their friends what a grand time they had. At a recent board of directors' meeting of the Men's Division Ben Serkin was elected house chairman; Arthur Blott, educational adviser, and Harry Schwartz, publicity director. Lou Safan, who was a pretty sick man last week, is faring much better after being under observation In a recent pinochle game Mr. Louis Safer had the satisfaction of bidding a 450 hand in spades without losing a trick. That, mine frans, don't happen every day, if you know your pinochle. Listening to the post-mortems after each game is more fun than the actual playing.
