I wJemsti IFIIoiridliai in w COMBIHM* Tlhe Jewish (UmHty Vol. 9—No. 31 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1936 Price Five Cents Asheville Scene Of Hatred Hoax Asheville, N. C. (WNS)—The fact that two rabbis were invited to address the National Conference of Christian Ministers and Laymen here brought on a violent dispute at one of the sessions of the conference, when some of the delegates objected vehemently to the inclusion of Jews. The rabbis, who had been invited by Dr. Irvin C. Wise of Brooklyn and the Rev. R. E. Nollner of Houston had been under the impression that the conference was called to discuss methods of ministerial co-operation i'l the safeguarding of the American Constitution, but found that the sponsors of the conference included a number of preminent antiSemites, among them James True and Royal Scott Gulden and Howland Spencer, whose Highland (N. Y.) Post some weeks ago "disclosed" a Jewish "plot" to take over the American gomenment. The ultimate aim of the conference, it developed, was to "chase the Communists around the calendar" and oppose the re-election of president Roosevelt. The conference also repudiated the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ, on the grounds that they support "red" tendencies in American govei nment.

New York (WNS)—Resentment of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish leaders against Father Charles E. Coughlin's "challenge" to the Jews was voiced in statements issued here by Dr. Frank Gavin, professor of church history at General Theological Seminary, Monsignor John A. Ryan of the Catholic University of America, the Rev. R. A. McGowan, assistant director of the department of social action of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, and Professor Louis Finkelstein, professor of theology at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Professor Gavin said: "It is rather late in history for Father Coughlin to read the Jews a lesson in 'thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.' The Jews were the first to teach that very principle. The 'eye for an eye' doctrine was thoroughly repudiated by the Jews very early in their history, much soonar, in fact, than by any other people, for every nation, without exception, followed that barbarous doctrine in the slow upward climb toward so-called civilization." "Father Coughlin's reference to 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth' is had exegesis, bad history and bad argument," said Mon. signor Ryan. "It is unjust to Jews and unfortunate in the political campaign." Father McGowan, who has cooperated with Jewish and Protestant bodies in joint action for social justice, charged Father Coughlin with forgetting "the remarkable work for economic justice dor.o by the Central Conference of American Rabbis during the past fifteen years," adding that "the social action department of the National Catholic Welfare Conference (Continued on Page 5) A.

It would appear that with the lesson of the terrible retribution that has come to the German Jew. perhaps because of the fact that he stood aloof from Jewish problems, perhaps because of his firm belief "it can't happen here!" our American Jews would realize that they can't hide from themselves that by trying to shun their Jewish identity, their Jewish responsibility, they were not only hurting themselves as Jews, but losing the respect of their non-Jewish neighbors. Not so very long ago when the question of a boycott of German made goods was taken up in Miami, many of the prominent Jewish citizens decried every move in its favor and urged that nothing he done "perhaps it may cause our non-Jewish friends to despise us" when the question of urging upon our non-Jewish friends the wrong in supporting the movement to send representatives to the Olympicgames at Berlin (though to the credit of our rabbis and other leaders it should be said that they were heartily in the forefront of the battle), some of these Jews who try to outdo themselves in matters un-Jewish, were the first to rush to their non-Jewish friends and belittle the efforts of those who opposed the Olympics Yes. and it was these selfsame gentlemen who opposed the World Jewish Congress ... It is indeed encouraging to find so able an editor as that of the Miami Herald, in last Sunday's issue, approve the work of the World Jewish Congress, encourage the boycott of German goods and applaud as natural those very things lhat some of our own Jew effacing weaklings have opposed. When in the past week an invitation was extended to more than thirty-odd professional business men of Greater Miami to attend a meeting to discuss certain anti-Semitic activities in Florida, including the dissemination of Policy and similar anti-Jewish, anti-Catholic and Hitler literature, less than half attended. Though this was disheartening to those who really have Jewish welfare at heart, it was indeed encouraging to read the brief paragraph in last Tuesday's Dailv News in its Whirligig column: BLACK LEGION—In spite of widespread publicity on their murderous activities in other parts of the nation. Black Legion organizers have been in Miami for some time trying to build a local organization. Here, as elsewhere, their platform is race hatred. Officials who have an eye on the organization efforts say the visiting Black Legion officials have been trying to recruit members, with but indifferent success. Officials arc watching developments closely, but say their hands are tied by the fact there is no law in Florida forbidding secret organizations. However, the first time Black Legion members break a law, enforcement men will jump on the organization with both feet. It is high time that these Jewish weaklings, whoever and wherever they may be. be made to realize that their actions are but treason to the Jewish people and to them selves our non-Jewish friends cannot but soon realize their lack of value, not only to the Jewish people, but to all the people at large, because it is incontrovertible that one who is faithless to himself cannot be faithful to others. 200.000 Non-Aryan Children Are! it was revealed in a report to the Barred From Reich Schools Montreux, Switzerland (WNS)— Nazi anti-Semitic legislation has excluded from the German public schools 200,000 non-Aryan children, committee on minorities of the Universal Alliance for International Friendship through the Churches, which is holding a congress at Chamby. The committee is expeited to take some action on the problem of the German Jews. On the twenty-second anniversary of the World War the other day Karl R;-.dok, that very intelligent Soviet writer and politician, gave out an interview which seems tn describe and diagnose with calm and humane exactness the immediate state of the world. Nearly all the imperialist powers, especially Germany, Italy and Japan, ai planning and plotting "the terrible crime of war." At the moment the masses of men are helpless to prevent this. But once the wars come and are waged "they will set in motion forces that will be the revolutionary answer" to that terrible crime. Hence, as one can see, the Soviet Union is not any longer trying to foment world revolution. It watches. It is giving the Fascist criminals rope enough. They will be sure to hang themselves. And nothing could be handsomer than Radok's conclusion concerning his own country: "She will support all people strug gling for peace, and in case of war will join forces with any who are attacked by Fascism." To this on the face of it and to these words in their surface signification no humane and civilized person could fail to say: so he it. Unfortunately for some of us, foolish, perverse, old-fashioned as we may be thought, the issue is not BO clear. For the issue not (ah, if it only were) one between war and peace, tyranny and liberty, brutality and brotherhood, but it is an issue symbolized by the "deadly and essential enmity between two rival systems now seeking converts in democratic countries." He has uttered the baleful words, the excellent Comrad Radek, and I often wonder how men of first rate intelligence like himself and Comrade Litvinoff can manage to repress in the exact Freudian sense from their consciousness the dreadful and fundamental and eternalyes, eternal -truth. All "systems" are of the devil. All "systems" are the works, symbolically speaking, of satan. darknes, death. There was a Greek robber king of fable named Procrustes. Hi' had an iron bed. If his captives were too short for the bed he stretched and broke them on a rack till they were long enough. If they were too long for the bed he chopped '>ff head or feet or both till they were short enough. They had to :it Into the bed. That Is Bystem. That is orthodoxy. You become a •convert" Or you are stretched or chopped. In the early days of the Soviet Union it was the fashion to be unshaved anil slovenly as befitted a good proletarian and protestant against the dirty bourgeois affectation of cleanliness. Now (according to the papers) the wind goes forth that barber shops and beauty parlors are to be multiplied and that the Soviet citizen is not to be behind the reactionary bourgeois In neatness and self-respect Of the body. A trivial and amusing example. Yet as good as any to point out the fact that the only people in the Soviet Union worth the name of man were those who lhaved sedulously in the first period and who are strongly tempted to neglect shaving now.

An unusually large crowd witnessed the first presentation of an amateur program sponsored by the men's division last Wednesday at Kaplan Hall.

Believe it or not, the "V" diamondbawllers won themselves two names last week, defeating the Antlers, 7 to 1, and Migroco, 14 to 7.

He cannot and will not be a convert. He is his own convert. He is what God meant him to he. lie refuses to he ought but that, lie may not even always know what that is. But he is on his road—his own road toward a goal which, though invisible, is his own. To be asked to be converted to a system even to be asked is a violation of conscience, it is persecution for conscience' sake. What a man is. that is his religion. To try to make him other than he is. to convert him to a system -that is persecution. Whether I am persecuted as a Jew or as an unconvertible bourgeois-religious ideologist makes precious little difference under the aspect not only of eternity, but of any length of relative time. Such, unless I grossly mi-read and misinterpret, has been in all agea the instinctive attitude of the Jewish people. Why did we not submit to Rome and its idols'.' It would have been the easiest way. Why did we not say to the church and its Inquisition in the Middle Ages: "Fine, you're right! We'll all be baptized!" At last, during the emancipatory period we gave in. We said: "We will be inn pel (int Germans and Frenchmen and Turkand Greeks and what not!" And behold, we could not live up to our own sincere promise not carry to the ultimate conclusion of disappearance our own sincere efforts. There are more Jews in the world today than there ever were before and the Germans of the Mosaic faith and the Poles of the Mosaic faith are just plain Jews once more. And so with all the respect in the world for Karl Radek and with all sympathy for those young Jews who accept Radek's picture of a sharply divided World, I venture to prophesy that the Jews of the Marxist faith will on some nearer or farther tomorrow he just plain Jews again. Perhaps, who knows, there is something in that verse of scrioture about being "a light to the Gentiles"? Perhaps it is our duty in this age to hold out against systems, neo-orthodoxics. absolutisms of either doctrine or conduct, all forms of the Hegelian servile state, all forms of persecution and repression and forcible conversion under whatever flag or ism? Perhaps. Perhaps we are called upon to be among the last defenders of a humane order, I dare no longer say a Socialist society, for the only one in existence is an orthodox servile state. Let us say a democratic and socialized society a society that aims after both freedom and justice because it knowthat without freedom there can be no justice.

The new edifice will be a credit to t hiJewish community of St. Petersburg. At the last meeting of the boar I of trustees, combined with the Ladies' Auxiliary of the congregation and the Judaic Council, a number of applications of outstanding rabb s were considered.

On the Move That so-called-non-sectarian clergymen's conference at Asheville, N. C, which, as we write, is about to convene, is a strictly anti-Semitic gathering The call for the conference was first issued in the Christian American and was signed by -in li luminaries as Robert Edwarl Edmondson, James True, Colonel Edward Sanctuary and other notorious "Americanazis" The unbelievably stupid impudence of the organizers of this conference is that they invited two rabbiAbraham Feinberg of NewYork and Rabbi Wrubel of Asheville The rabbis were promised not only carfare and expenses, but also a speaker's tee The tragedy is that these rabbis probably know nothing about the auspices under which the conference was held and actually accepted the invitation We hope that nothing has happened to them. Friday, August 21 193 6 Fascism at Our Gates (Continued from Page 1) Germany. Directly or indirectly, they are subsidized by the Nazi party or other organized forms of Hitlerism in Germany. It is interesting to.note also that wherever one goes in the United States one finds the evidences of the activities of these Nazi groups. Their literature, usually translated into English, is spread throughout the country. They furnish speakerand pamphlets for meetings in numerous large cities. They are ever alert to propagandize in behalf of Hitler and to combat lectures and books ififavorable to Nazi Germany. At the present time they are co-operating actively in behalf of a Fascist and antiSemitic America. According to my judgment, the most effective and the most farreaching and vicious Nazi and anti-Semitic propaganda is being carried on in America under the personal direction of the notorious Julius Stretcher, the world's foremost anti-Semite. I have personul knowledge of his American connections. When I was in Nuremberg, Germany, recently. I sought an interview with Streicher. For two days I went back and forth between his office in the Nuremberg Brown House and the editorial offices of St i cic-lier's newspapers. His secretary and his editorial assistants informed me that when Mr. Streicher was ready to see me I would be notified. Not, of course, by telephone, because no one in Franconia, where Streicher is governor, is allowed to communicate with Streicher by phone. "Not permitted to confer by telephone with only the governor of a German state" I asked in astonishment, i "That is right," they said. "We are not permitted even to telephone Mr. 3treicher's secretary. You see, he is very busy and he must be protected in the important work he is doing." When I discovered that Streicher had evaded me and gone to Berlin I stormed into his newspaper offices and said in a rather indignant manner: "Well, I have come all the way from America to find out the truth about Germany. I have read in the American papers that Mr. Streicher is a sex pervert: that he carries a blacksnake whip which he uses on his opponents; that he has made himself rich by his Jew-baiting enterprise; that he has been convicted in Garman courts of theft, bribery and embezzlement and of slander and libel. I shall have to go back to America believing that these things are true. Surely, Mr. Streicher. who could tell me the whys and w here I" o r e s of anti-Semitism, should have seen me and set me right, if I am wrong. I shall have to believe that Mr. Streicher is a sadist and that his special gift is the spread of pornography and the hatred of Jews throughout Germany. It must be that Mr. Streicher is afraid; that he has something to hide from American eyes. Am I right?" After this outburst of "righteous indignation" the editorial assistants, through whom I had been seeking an interview with the im, portent Nazi leader, went into a huddle. Presently one of them wrote something on a sheet of paper and handed it to me with the following advice: "We are sorry that you did not get to see Mr. Streicher. But he was called to Berlin on important business. (I found out later that he went to i (Continued on Page 6)

Asheville Scene
Of Hatred Hoax
Asheville, N. C. (WNS)The
fact that two rabbis were invited
to address the National Conference
of Christian Ministers and Laymen
here brought on a violent dispute
at one of the sessions of the con-
ference, when some of the dele-
gates objected vehemently to the
inclusion of Jews. The rabbis,
who had been invited by Dr. Irvin
C. Wise of Brooklyn and the Rev.
R. E. Nollner of Houston had been
under the impression that the con-
ference was called to discuss meth-
ods of ministerial co-operation i'l
the safeguarding of the American
Constitution, but found that the
sponsors of the conference includ-
ed a number of preminent anti-
Semites, among them James True
and Royal Scott Gulden and How-
land Spencer, whose Highland (N.
Y.) Post some weeks ago "dis-
closed" a Jewish "plot" to take
over the American gomenment.
The ultimate aim of the confer-
ence, it developed, was to "chase
the Communists around the calen-
dar" and oppose the re-election of
president Roosevelt. The confer-
ence also repudiated the Federal
Council of the Churches of Christ,
on the grounds that they support
"red" tendencies in American gov-
ei nment.

Dr. Vaughn told him, "1 have to

of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish
leaders against Father Charles E.
Coughlin's "challenge" to the Jews
was voiced in statements issued
here by Dr. Frank Gavin, profes-
sor of church history at General
Theological Seminary, Monsignor
John A. Ryan of the Catholic Uni-
versity of America, the Rev. R. A.
McGowan, assistant director of the
department of social action of the
National Catholic Welfare Confer-
ence, and Professor Louis Finkel-
stein, professor of theology at the
Jewish Theological Seminary of
America.
Professor Gavin said: "It is
rather late in history for Father
Coughlin to read the Jews a lesson
in 'thou shalt love thy neighbor
as thyself.' The Jews were the

The 'eye for an eye' doctrine was
thoroughly repudiated by the Jews

people, for every nation, without

toward so-called civilization."

'an eye for an eye and a tooth for

Must Others Point the Way?
It would appear that with the lesson of the terrible ret-
ribution that has come to the German Jew. perhaps because
of the fact that he stood aloof from Jewish problems, perhaps
because of his firm belief "it can't happen here!" our Amer-
ican Jews would realize that they can't hide from themselves
. that by trying to shun their Jewish identity, their Jewish
responsibility, they were not only hurting themselves as
Jews, but losing the respect of their non-Jewish neighbors.
Not so very long ago when the question of a boycott of
German made goods was taken up in Miami, many of the
prominent Jewish citizens decried every move in its favor
and urged that nothing he done "perhaps it may cause
our non-Jewish friends to despise us" when the question
of urging upon our non-Jewish friends the wrong in support-
ing the movement to send representatives to the Olympic-
games at Berlin (though to the credit of our rabbis and other
leaders it should be said that they were heartily in the fore-
front of the battle), some of these Jews who try to outdo
themselves in matters un-Jewish, were the first to rush to
their non-Jewish friends and belittle the efforts of those who
opposed the Olympics Yes. and it was these selfsame
gentlemen who opposed the World Jewish Congress ... It is
indeed encouraging to find so able an editor as that of the
Miami Herald, in last Sunday's issue, approve the work of
the World Jewish Congress, encourage the boycott of German
goods and applaud as natural those very things lhat some
of our own Jew effacing weaklings have opposed.
When in the past week an invitation was extended to
more than thirty-odd professional business men of Greater
Miami to attend a meeting to discuss certain anti-Semitic
activities in Florida, including the dissemination of Policy
and similar anti-Jewish, anti-Catholic and Hitler literature,
less than half attended. Though this was disheartening to
those who really have Jewish welfare at heart, it was indeed
encouraging to read the brief paragraph in last Tuesday's
Dailv News in its Whirligig column:
BLACK LEGIONIn spite of widespread pub-
licity on their murderous activities in other parts of
the nation. Black Legion organizers have been in
Miami for some time trying to build a local organi-
zation. Here, as elsewhere, their platform is race
hatred. Officials who have an eye on the organiza-
tion efforts say the visiting Black Legion officials
have been trying to recruit members, with but in-
different success. Officials arc watching develop-
ments closely, but say their hands are tied by the
fact there is no law in Florida forbidding secret or-
ganizations. However, the first time Black Legion
members break a law, enforcement men will jump on
the organization with both feet.
It is high time that these Jewish weaklings, whoever
and wherever they may be. be made to realize that their
actions are but treason to the Jewish people and to them
selves our non-Jewish friends cannot but soon realize
their lack of value, not only to the Jewish people, but to all
the people at large, because it is incontrovertible that one
who is faithless to himself cannot be faithful to others.
200.000 Non-Aryan Children Are! it was revealed in a report to the

versal Alliance for International
Friendship through the Churches,
which is holding a congress at
Chamby. The committee is expeit-
ed to take some action on the prob-
lem of the German Jews.
On the twenty-second anniver-
sary of the World War the other
day Karl R;-.dok, that very intelli-
gent Soviet writer and politician,
gave out an interview which seems
tn describe and diagnose with calm
and humane exactness the imme-
diate state of the world. Nearly
all the imperialist powers, espe-
cially Germany, Italy and Japan,
ai planning and plotting "the ter-
rible crime of war." At the mo-
ment the masses of men are help-
less to prevent this. But once the
wars come and are waged "they
will set in motion forces that will
be the revolutionary answer" to
that terrible crime. Hence, as one
can see, the Soviet Union is not
any longer trying to foment world
revolution. It watches. It is giv-
ing the Fascist criminals rope
enough. They will be sure to hang
themselves. And nothing could be
handsomer than Radok's conclu-
sion concerning his own country:
"She will support all people strug
gling for peace, and in case of war
will join forces with any who are
attacked by Fascism."
To this on the face of it and to
these words in their surface sig-
nification no humane and civilized
person could fail to say: so he it.
Unfortunately for some of us, fool-
ish, perverse, old-fashioned as we
may be thought, the issue is not
bo clear. For the issue not (ah,
if it only were) one between war
and peace, tyranny and liberty,
brutality and brotherhood, but it
is an issue symbolized by the
"deadly and essential enmity be-
tween two rival systems now seek-
ing converts in democratic coun-
tries."
He has uttered the baleful words,
the excellent Comrad Radek, and
I often wonder how men of first
rate intelligence like himself and
Comrade Litvinoff can manage to
repress in the exact Freudian sense
from their consciousness the dread-
ful and fundamental and eternal-
yes, eternal -truth. All "systems"
are of the devil. All "systems"
are the works, symbolically speak-
ing, of satan. darknes, death.
There was a Greek robber king of

estant against the dirty bourgeois

(according to the papers) the wind
goes forth that barber shops and
beauty parlors are to be multiplied

To be asked to be converted to a

lation of conscience, it is persecu-
tion for conscience' sake. What a

try to make him other than he is.
to convert him to a system -that
is persecution. Whether I am per-
secuted as a Jew or as an uncon-
vertible bourgeois-religious ideolo-
gist makes precious little differ-
ence under the aspect not only of
eternity, but of any length of rel-
ative time.
Such, unless I grossly mi-read
and misinterpret, has been in all
agea the instinctive attitude of the
Jewish people. Why did we not
submit to Rome and its idols'.' It
would have been the easiest way.
Why did we not say to the church
and its Inquisition in the Middle
Ages: "Fine, you're right! We'll
all be baptized!" At last, during
the emancipatory period we gave
in. We said: "We will be inn pel
(int Germans and Frenchmen and
Turk- and Greeks and what not!"
And behold, we could not live up
to our own sincere promise not
carry to the ultimate conclusion of
disappearance our own sincere ef-
forts. There are more Jews in the
world today than there ever were
before and the Germans of the Mo-
saic faith and the Poles of the Mo-
saic faith are just plain Jews once
more. And so with all the respect
in the world for Karl Radek and
with all sympathy for those young
Jews who accept Radek's picture
of a sharply divided World, I ven-
ture to prophesy that the Jews of
the Marxist faith will on some
nearer or farther tomorrow he just
plain Jews again.
Perhaps, who knows, there is
something in that verse of scrio-
ture about being "a light to the
Gentiles"? Perhaps it is our duty
in this age to hold out against sys-
tems, neo-orthodoxics. absolutisms
of either doctrine or conduct, all
forms of the Hegelian servile state,
all forms of persecution and repres-
sion and forcible conversion under
whatever flag or ism? Perhaps.
Perhaps we are called upon to be
among the last defenders of a hu-
mane order, I dare no longer say
a Socialist society, for the only
one in existence is an orthodox
servile state. Let us say a demo-
cratic and socialized society a so-
ciety that aims after both freedom
and justice because it know- that
without freedom there can be no
justice.

into harmony with peoples of West-

That so-called-non-sectarian cler-
gymen's conference at Asheville, N.
C, which, as we write, is about to
convene, is a strictly anti-Semitic
gathering The call for the con-
ference was first issued in the
Christian American and was signed
by -in li luminaries as Robert Ed-
warl Edmondson, James True,
Colonel Edward Sanctuary and
other notorious "Americanazis"
. The unbelievably stupid impu-
dence of the organizers of this con-
ference is that they invited two
rabbi- Abraham Feinberg of New-
York and Rabbi Wrubel of Ashe-
ville The rabbis were prom-
ised not only carfare and expenses,
but also a speaker's tee The
tragedy is that these rabbis prob-
ably know nothing about the aus-
pices under which the conference
was held and actually accepted the
invitation We hope that noth-
ing has happened to them.

Fascism at
Our Gates
(Continued from Page 1)
Germany. Directly or indirectly,
they are subsidized by the Nazi
party or other organized forms of
Hitlerism in Germany.
It is interesting to.note also that
wherever one goes in the United
States one finds the evidences of
the activities of these Nazi groups.
Their literature, usually translated
into English, is spread throughout
the country. They furnish speak-
er- and pamphlets for meetings in
numerous large cities. They are
ever alert to propagandize in be-
half of Hitler and to combat lec-
tures and books ififavorable to
Nazi Germany. At the present
time they are co-operating active-
ly in behalf of a Fascist and anti-
Semitic America.
According to my judgment, the
most effective and the most far-
reaching and vicious Nazi and
anti-Semitic propaganda is being
carried on in America under the
personal direction of the notorious
Julius Stretcher, the world's fore-
most anti-Semite. I have personul
knowledge of his American con-
nections.
When I was in Nuremberg, Ger-
many, recently. I sought an inter-
view with Streicher. For two days
I went back and forth between his
office in the Nuremberg Brown
House and the editorial offices of
St i cic-lier's newspapers. His sec-
retary and his editorial assistants
informed me that when Mr.
Streicher was ready to see me I
would be notified. Not, of course,
by telephone, because no one in
Franconia, where Streicher is gov-
ernor, is allowed to communicate
with Streicher by phone. "Not per-
mitted to confer by telephone with
only the governor of a German
state" I asked in astonishment,
i "That is right," they said. "We
are not permitted even to tele-
phone Mr. 3treicher's secretary.
You see, he is very busy and he
must be protected in the impor-
tant work he is doing."
When I discovered that Streicher
had evaded me and gone to Berlin
I stormed into his newspaper of-
fices and said in a rather indig-
nant manner: "Well, I have come
all the way from America to find
out the truth about Germany. I
have read in the American papers
that Mr. Streicher is a sex per-
vert: that he carries a blacksnake
whip which he uses on his oppo-
nents; that he has made himself
rich by his Jew-baiting enterprise;
that he has been convicted in Gar-
man courts of theft, bribery and
embezzlement and of slander and
libel. I shall have to go back to
America believing that these things
are true. Surely, Mr. Streicher.
who could tell me the whys and
w here I" o r e s of anti-Semitism,
should have seen me and set me
right, if I am wrong. I shall have
to believe that Mr. Streicher is a
sadist and that his special gift is
the spread of pornography and the
hatred of Jews throughout Ger-
many. It must be that Mr. Streich-
er is afraid; that he has some-
thing to hide from American eyes.
Am I right?"
After this outburst of "righteous
indignation" the editorial assist-
ants, through whom I had been
seeking an interview with the im-
, portent Nazi leader, went into a
huddle. Presently one of them
wrote something on a sheet of pa-
per and handed it to me with the
following advice: "We are sorry
that you did not get to see Mr.
Streicher. But he was called to
Berlin on important business. (I
found out later that he went to i

" World Jewish Hody Adopts I'er-
niant'iil Name
Geneva (WNS-Palcor Agency)
The World Jewish Congress will
become a permanent organization
carrying that name, it was decid-
ed here. A proposal made by Dr.
Stephen Wise was adopted by the
delegates. "The name of this or-
ganization in- body shall he the
Wni Id Jewish Congress. Its ob-
jecl is to form a voluntary co-op-
erative union of Jewish communi-
iii- and organizations of the world
in order to act on behalf of world
Jewry in relation to common Jew-
ish problems."
Ilii formula was adopted only
after a vigorous discussion during
u ; ich a number of American dele-
gates strongly opposed the claim
ihat the congress was already com-
pletely representative.
The congress voted unanimously
that future elections shall be held
by direct ballot on a proportional
basis, with the provision i hat in
"any countries where there is a
erali democratically elected
body representing the whole Jew-
ish population, that body may send
delegations to the congress." Elec-
tions to the congress are to be held
every four years and it will meet
every two years. Between sessions
the work will be directed by a cen-
tral council and an executive com-
mittee, the central council meet-
ing at least uiice every year. The
executive will fulfill the functions
ii?' the council when these other
bodies are not in session, imple-

The defendants are Arnold Leese,
head of the Imperial Fascist
League, and Walter Whitehead,
printer of the Fascist.
The charges against them are
based on the publication of articles
accusing the Jews of ritual murder
against Christians and in other
ways libeling the Jews so as to
arouse ill will between religious
groups and "to create public mis-
chief." Leese and Whitehead
pleaded not guilty and were re-
<;i-ccl on hail. Leese's defense
was that his charges against the
Jews were not new, having been
made in the Old Testament. White-
head testified that he was soleiy
a printer, and not concerned with
the contents of the publication.

I followed the advice of Streich-

out the "Fencing School." I found
that office in an old building, on
the third floor and in a remote

piece of paper on which the editor
had written the address, he smiled
and invited me into an inner office.
