THE WORLD'S WINDOW Y. M. H. A. to Hold AMERICAN-NAZI GROUPS
All-Day Picnic PURVEYORS OF POISON
By LUDWIG LEWISOHN

cate. Reproduction in whole or

Thy first Jewish World Congress
has closed its sessions in Geneva.
It has become incorporated under
Swiss law; it has established cer-
tain bureaus and departments; it
has determined to try to co-ordi-
nate the work of the moral, polit-
ical and material helf-help of all
Israel. It will be said justly enough
that so far all these projects are
more or less on paper. It will be
aid of the congress (especially
by its original opponents) that
speeches have been made in Ge-
neva and that speeches do not af-
fect the world of practice. The
Jewish situation in Germany, Po-
land, Roumania remains un-
changed; the Arabs in Palestine
continue to murder innocent civil-
ians; the tide of anti-Semitism in
the world is not stemmed.
All this is true with a surface
truth. The identical objections
;-ould have been brought and were
brought against the first Zionist
Congress in 1807. With much more
force, with much more justice. A
handful of obscure men, represent-
ing a few handfuls of people whom
all the world, including the Jewish
world, considered crack-brained,
considered too crazy and unimpor-
tant to be even dangerous, met in
Basle and, as it must have seemed
to anyone who stopped to notice
them then, passed pompous reso-
lutions and made pompous de-
mands of the world. Yet only 21
years laterwhich is less than an
instant in history these demands
and this program were embodied
in the treaties of the great powers
of Europe and ratified by the con-
gress of the United States.
In the immediate condition of
the world no man of sense can be
optimistic either in respect of the
world as a whole or in respect of
the fate of the Jewish people.
Never indeed within the memory
of living men have things looked
~o Mack and. above all. so impen-
etrably obscure to any good or any
hope of betterment. Yet If Jews,
the historical people among the
world's peoples, would be more
mindful of the character of the
historic processes as experience re-
veals them for all men to see, they
would be able to preserve a cor,'
of equanimity, even within the
thousand discouragements of this
age.
The venerable Simon Dubnow,
the greatest Jewish historian of all
time, the most eminent of living
historiographers in the world,
nade the point at the beginning of
his final draft of the "World His-
tory of the Jewish People" in ten
volumes (translated from the orig-
inal Russian manuscript into He-
brew and German and not yet,
scandalously enough, into Eng-
lish) that all previous histories of
the Jews, including the neverthe-
less memorable work of Graetz,
consisted of two elements: one, a
history of literature; two, a mar-
tyrology. In other words, Jewish
historians, most of whom arose
during the period of emancipation
and assimilation, consciously or
not, omitted from their books the
Jewish people as the active sub-
ject or bearer of its own history
and as the source of those forces,
both positive and negative, by
means of which that people man-
aged to live on. He proved that
the Jewish people had been in all
ages sociologically active or cre-
ative within its often terrific lim-
itations. Only through this activ-
ity, community forming, centripet-
al, organizing and reorganizing the
life of the people as such, is the
lurvival of the Jews to be ex-
plained at all. Peoples who lost
that will toward the organic have,
in fact, not survived; Israel never
lost that will. Therefore Israel
has survived.
Let us take a single example of
the contrary process. Rome con-
quered Gaul. The Gauls remained.
The modern Frenchman must be
by ultimate descent as much Gaul
as Roman. He knows it; he is
proud of it; gaulois, gallic or gaul-
ish is a favorite adjective among
Frenchmen. But the Gauls as a
separate, self-sustaining ethnolog-
ical and linguistic entity lost their
will to survive. They, as sucn,
have gone for many centuries; of
their Celtic tongue only a few ves-
tiges irrecognizably latinized re-
main in the French language. The
Jews, conquered from within and
from without over and over again,
! had the will toward organic and
' separate' survival. A highly lit-
erate people, they not only pre-
served through tile ages their orig-
inal mother tongue, Hebrew. They
I did more than that, amazingly
' more: they look the languages that
were forced upon them by their
environment ami re-created them
into their image and for. as it were,
their private use. They tinned
German into Yiddish and Spanish
into Spaniolish and the Arabic ol
North Africa into that Judaeo-Ar-
abic which survives vigorously side
by side with both Hebrew and Ar-
abic. In brief, those who deny
that th.' Jews are a people with
,h.' irresistible will toward organic
survival a- a people, fly in the face
not only of common sense and daily
observation, but of the irrefutable
fa.-.s of history and linguistic
science,
Now the /-ion st movement, from
iis humble beginnings the better
part of a century ago on. was and
is an integral part and direct man-
it'e-tation of the Jewish people's
continuous will toward organic
survival and the first World Jew-
ish Congress, belli in Geneva th s
August, is another manifestation

What promises to be one of the
outstanding events of the summer
is the all day picnic being spon-
sored by the Young Men's Hebrew
Association on Sunday, September
6th, at Hardie's Casino, Miami

cooked goodies will be sold luring

ed to the winners. The public :s
urged to attend and enjoy an ex-
ceptionally pleasant day. In charge
of arrangements is a committee of

dames M. Moss, Nat Blumberg, II.
Feinberg, Max Schenkman, Sam

lowing day a Labor Day dance will

"Fascism at Our fiates"
By DR. [.. M. BIRKHEAD
In this, the third of his ar-
ticles on the spread of Fascist
anti-Semitic movements in the
United States, Dr. Birkhead, who
has already told the readers of
the Jewish Floridian about the
links between German Nazis and
American anti-Semitic groups,
begins to enumerate the most
important of the Fascist anti-
Semitic groups in this country.
--The Editor.
Jews to Suffer
If Fascists Win
New York (WNS)In the event
of a Fascist triumph in the Spanish
civil war the Jews of Spain will
find themselves victims of a re-
enactment of the Expulsion of
1402. This in effect was the state-
ment made by General Emilio
Mola, one of the leading rebel com-
manders, in a copyrighted inter-
view with an Associated Press cor-
respondent at BurgOS, rebel head-
quarters. Asked by the corre-
spondent, "What plans have you
for a new Spanish state?" General
Mola answered frankly: "Spain
will be governed in a fashion which
will make it impossible for power
ever again to fall into the hands
of dirty politicians, Free Masons.
Jews anil similar parasites on hu-
man society." General Mola's
statement confirms evidence in doc-
uments seized in rebel headquar-
ters in Barcelona and Madrid, re-
vealing plans for a Jewish expul-
sion by the Fascists.
Barcelona (WNS) While the
Jews in Spanish Morocco, which i-
in the hands of the rebels, are suf-
fering persecution, exploitation
and pogroms, the Jewish commu-
nity here is physically safe, but
economically distraught, it was de-
clared by A. Glanczstein, vice-pres-
ident of the Barcelona kehilla. aft-
er a survey of the situation. Over
1,000 Jewish families, most of
them Greeks, Turks, Bulgarians,
Roumanians and Hungarians, have
lefl Barcelona since '.lie outbreak
of the civil war. Those who have
remained are facing hut
cause of the growing shorta of
food. All Jewish-owned shops are
closed.
In my first article I said that
Sinclair Lewis was being criticized
for making the Fascism of his "It
Can't Happen Here" too much an
invitation of the Hitler variety.
Well, you see now why Fascism an 1
tnti-Semitism in America are o
much like the Nazi brand. After
all. children .dp resemble their
parents. These American Jew
haters are either distributing the
Streicher product coming directly
from the British Imperial Fascist
League or they are translating,
transposing and printing the stuff
in their own publications.
Streicher has sworn that he will
reproduce on American soil ex-
actly what he has done in Ger-
many. If America does not awak-
en shortly he will without doubt
carry out his threat.
I have recently visited the head-
quarters and interviewed the lead-
ers of many of the important Fas-
cist and anti-Semitic organizations
in America, They are more active
now than ever before and they are
reaching an increasing number of
American citizens. The list of
more than one hundred of these
groups is in itself disconcerting.
The names and plans and pur-
poses of a f<-w ( the more impor-
tant ones should be made familiar
to every American who believes
in the Bill of Rights and in toler-
ance and decency toward minority
groups and who has contempt for
racketeers in racial hate and reli-
gious bigotry. I shall refer to
these groups more or less in the
order of their importance,
Edmondson Economic Service
(M Washington St., New York
Cityl: Robert Edward Edmondson
is the directing head of this serv-
ice. He told me that he had rep-
resentatives in nearly all the
states who order his literature hi
quantities and distribute it widely.
Recently Mr. Edmondson has been
sued by Mayor I.a Guardia of Now
York City lor libelling Miss Fran-
i ivrkins, Miss Virginia C. Gil-
dersleeve, dean of Barnard Col-
l i and the Jewish religion. On
tl e whole. Edmondson puts out the
most effective and the most vi-I
cious anti-Semitic propaganda in
the United States. It is written
down to a low intellectual level
and it is brief anil slanderous and
M. BIRKHEAD
unscrupulous in its attacks on the
Jews. He has published nearly a
hundred pamphlets and they have
had a circulation of approximately
six million. Mr. Edmondson in-
I formed me that his pamphlets are
sold and the income from them
pays for their publication. I have
received many of the Edmondson
pamphlets free and I know others
who have also. Of course, Ed-
mondson is subsidized by someone.
Colonel E. N. Sanctuary, one of
the leading American Jew baiters,
admitted to me that he had con-
tributed to Edmondson's cause.
The World Alliance Against
Jewish Aggressiveness (Presbyte-
rian Building. 156 Fifth ave.. New
York City): This clearing house
for anti-Semitism is headed by
Colonel E. N. Sanctuary, 'olonel
Sanctuary is a frequent speaker at
religious gatherings, patriotic
meetings and forums. He., covers
the eastern part of the United
States with his speaking campaign
against the Jews, but his pam-
phlets and books go everywhere.
He is in touch with all of the anti-
Semites in the country.
Those who are interested in halt-
ing the spread of anti-Semitism in
America should take more than a
1 cursory glance at Colonel Sanc-
tuary. He is the author of "Are
These Things So?" and "Tainted
Contacts," both unscrupulous at-
tacks on the Jews, as well as nu-
merous pamphlets along the same
line. He belongs to many patriotic
organizations and to several of the
anti-Semitic groups.
The colonel is tremendously in -
terested now in getting the Re-
publican party to sponsor a coun-
try-wide circulation of Harry A.
Jung's pamphlet on "The Man Be-
hind the Men Behind the Presi-
dent." This pamphlet is an un-
truthful and unscrupulous pam-
phlet about Felix Frankfurter. It
is through Frankfurther that the
Jews control America, according
to this pamphlet. Other assaults
on the Jews are in process of pub-
lication lone on Mrs. Eleanor
Roosevelt as Jew-controlled will be
out soon) anl Colonel Sanctuary
and his associates are in confer-
ence with Republican leaders about
giving these anti-Semitic docu-
ments a country-wide circulation.
Colonel Sanctuary contributes to
the printing of Edmondson's pam-
phlets and he informed me thai
Gentile lawyers are donating their
services in defense of Edmondson
against the LaGuardia suit. Colonel
Sanctuary Beemed proud of his
membership in Harry A. Jung's
organization, the "American Vigi-
lant Intelligence Federation" of
Chicago. In this group members
are known by number and not by
name.

him for a New York book store
from which I could secure a copy

Two Universities Celebrate
Perhaps the most striking illustration of the vast dif-
ference between free America and Nazified Germany is given
by the difference between th? celebration of the 550th anni-
vrsary of Heidelberg University as staged in the Third Reich
and the marking of the tercentenary of Harvard University
in the I'nited States. At Heidelberg every effort was made
to confine knowledge within the extremely narrow limits
set by the Nazi racial theory. The program for the Harvard
exercises has as its aim the proclamation of a universal cul-
ture, an all-embracing study of the sum total of civilization.
We in America know that a fusion of various racial and
cultural elements makes for national strength and intellectual
vigor; the history of our country has taught us that. And
the history of learning in America impresses this lesson even
more deeply upon us: All artificial lines of demarcation be-
tween individuals belonging to different religious or racial
groups must be erased if science and mankind are to make
progress in the true sense of the word. In accordance with
this Harvard has chosen an inspiring keynote for its tercen-
tennial celebration, the thesis that science is the greatest
unifying force in our world today.
Another significant contrast between the Harvard and
Heidelberg exercises lies in the choice of the participating
scholars. The Heidelberg fete gave places of honor to pro-
fessors who glorified the patched-up remains of the exploded
theory of Aryan superiority. At Harvard sixty-six distin-
guished scholars of many different nationalitiesincluding
a number of the non-Aryans against whom Heidelberg speak-
ers rantedwill he given the additional recognition of hon-
orary degrees.
The difference between Heidelberg and Harvard, in
other words, is the difference between stultifying medieval-
ism and modern progress.
Officials Bar Flaming Cross at
Klan Rally
Peekskill (WNS) Following
protests from Catholics and Jews,
the town counsel of Cortlandt is-
sued instructions forbidding the
display of a flaming "fiery kross"
by the resurgent Ku Klux Klan at
its field day celebration on Sep-
tember 5th, 0th and 7th at Lafay-
ette field. Revived after eight
years of inactivity, the hooded or-
der's Westchester county division
has distributed leaflets announcing
that the "Klan Rides Again." Fa-
ther Francis X. Doyle, pastor of
St. Patrick's Roman Catholic-
Church at Verplanck, had demand-
ed a ban on the klan's fiery cross
because the cross is a religious em-
blem and should not be burned.
MIAMI
NOTES
By HARRY SCHWARTZ
Welcome, members and friends,
to our gigantic two-day holiday
celebration. 'Tis but once a year
that we find ourselves in a posi-
tion to offer our
many friends the
opportunity to at-
tend two such
gala affairs as
will be your treat
to attend. The
first takes place
Sunday, Septem-
ber 6 at Hardie's Casino in the
form of an all day picnic and out-
ing, which is free to all. There
will be plenty of contests and
games to entertain the tiny tots
as well as the grown-ups. Bring
the whole mishpoocha and spend a
full day with the "Y," starting at
10 a. m.
The second event will be a frolic
and dance Monday night at the
Miami Beach Golf and Country
Club (rain or shine). An excel-
lent orchestra has been secured,
plus many outstanding entertain-
ers to assure all attending a splen-

British Jew Baiter Convicted for
Inciting Talk
London (WNS)The first con-
viction against an anti-Semite for
inciting talk against the Jews of
Great Britain was recorded in OKI
Street Police Court here when
Magistrate F. 0. Langley fined
John Penfold, 45, an auctioneer,
40 shillings and placed him under
50 pounds bond as a guarantee of
good behavior for the next year.
Penfold was accused by the police
I of demanding the expulsion of all
Jews from England in an address
at an open air Fascist meeting in
the East End. They quoted Pen-
fold as having said he would "turn
all Jews out of Britain, headed by
Leslie Hore-Bejrsha, minister of
transport, and Sir Philip Sassoon,'
under-secretary for air. Epstein
(the sculptor) would be there with .
his grotesque monstrosities to keep |
the birds away from the Wailing
Wall." The police officer arrested :
Penfold when an angry crowd of
Jews became unruly.
London (WNS)The suicide of
Dr. Daniel Hertz, brilliant 20-year-
old son of Chief Rabbi Joseph He
old son of Chief Rabbi Joseph
Hertz, has created a stir here.
Young Hertz killed himself by tak-
ing poison. No reason for his act .
is known, but it is reported that \
he feared he was suffering from
an incurable malady.
Bea Silver presided at the wom-
en's meeting last Tuesday for the
first time in over two months, dur-
ing which time she was vacationing
in New York. "Are You a Good
Sport?" was the topic chosen for
discussion with each of the mem-
bers present proving to be 100'<
sports, according to their own an-
swers. Janet Kaiasik was ap-
pointed secretary of the Y'. W.,
due to the resignation of Miss Nell
Lehrman, who will be Mrs. ? in
December.
Honoring Bea Silver's return,
Miss Janet Kaiasik wrote this lit-
tle poem:
.lust another greeting, warm and
true,
That's coming to you.
There's joy for the morning,
There's cheer for the day,
There's peace in the evening,
There's hope in it, too,
And running all through it
There's friendship for you.
Our diamondball team is recu-
uerating from their many victo-
ries. The "Y" Senior Division de-
feated the Junior group in a
grudge battle last Sunday by a
7 to 0 score, to quiet the young-
sters' ballyhoo down to a whisper.
Prospects look mighty fine for a
real team next year, with several
of the Juniors displaying good dia-
mondball talent.
At this writing the "Y" is still
in a tie for third place, with but
two games left on their schedule.
Inclement weather caused a post-
ponement of their game with the
leading WIOD-News team to a lat-
er date.
There will be a great deal of ac-
tivity taking place all next week
for the members and friends of
the Junior Division, Women's Di-
vision and Men's Division, due to

days, which start Thursday, Sep-

of the "Protocols," referred me to
"The league for Constitutional
Government" (18 East 48th st.).
Here I bought a copy of the "Prot-
ocols," interviewed the leader, John
B. Snow, had a lecture on anti-
Semitism (by Mr. Snow) and se-
cured other anti-Jewish literature.
An organization set up for purely
patriotic purposesthe League for
Constitutional Government has
developed into a "hot" Jew bait-
ing society. This has happened
also to Mr. Jung's aforementioned
patriotic groupthe American
Vigilant Intelligence Federation.
One of Colonel Sanctuary's pet
aversions is the Federal Council
of the Churches of Christ in Amer-
ica. It is an apostate Protestant
organization sold out to the Jews
and gone over to Communism, ac-
cording to the colonel.
Sanctuary really was a colonel
in the World war. He claims to
have first hand information that
the Russian revolution was a Jew-
ish plot financed by international
Jewish bankers. I did not see the
"first hand information." But the
colonel has seen it, and I should
take it on faith.
Typical of all the replies which
I have received from the anti-Se-
mitic leaders concerning the au-
thenticity of the Protocols is that
of Sanctuary. As a matter of fact,
every one of these Fascist leaders
said exactly the same thing in al-
most the same words. Said the
colonel: "I am not concerned with
the authenticity of the Protocols.
I agree with Henry Ford, who said
that he didn't care whether the
Protocols were authentic or not.
They explain better than any oth-
er document what is happening
now. The Protocols reveal a plan
of organized conspiracy to estab-
lish a world Jewish super-govern-
ment on the structure of the
League of Nations. Young man,
you ought to read the Protocols if
you want to understand what is
going on. It is all in these docu-
ments."
Oh, yes, the colonel also in-
formed me that the New Deal
really a "Jew Deal") is outlined
in the Protocols. He called my at-
tention to a pamphlet of Edmond-
son's which presents the "Damn-
ing Parallels" between the New
Deal and Protocols, and "proves"
that "the Roosevelt Jewish-Radi-
cal Regime" is fulfilling the Prot-
ocol prophecies.
Crusader White Shirts (of Chat-
tanooga, Tenn.): George W. Chris-
tians is the commander-in-chief of
this military Fascist and anti-Se-
mitic organization. Christians is
fully confident that he will become
the Hitler of America. He makes
no effort to conceal his Fascism,
as do some of the anti-Semites.
Many of the anti-Semitic groups
which shout the praises of Hitler
still deny that they are Fascis*.
They merely want to save the con-
stitution from the Communist-
lew.-, who have conspired to de-
stroy modern civilization. But
Christians, at least, is frank and
honest about his Fascist leanings.
He sends out his mail in envelopes
which have in large red letters in
the upper left hand corner the
words "The American Fascists."
Christians tis mote imitaitive of
Hitler than any of the other Fas-
cist leaders. He has had direct
connection with such avowed Nazi
agents as Oscar Pfaus, head of the
German Alliance.
I have had numerous communi-
cations from Christians. He writes
on stationery with a large red
cross printed up and down on the
sheet. He informs me in one of
his letters that:
"Wle have been flooding this
country from one end to the other
for five years with the most in-
flammable, revolutionary litera-
ture that we could devise and to-
day we have most powerful set of
organizations in the nation. Some
of the boys, like the Black Legion
in Detroit and quite a few other
places, have been getting a little
too impatient for their own good.
Revolutions arc not very nice, are
they.1 Before this thing is over
the Black Legion may have reason
to be ashamed of themselves for
being such pikers."
The commander-in-chief also
wrote me, in the same letter, about
my proposed federal investigation
of Fascist activities (I had tele-
graphed President Roosevelt ask-
ing for such an investigation).
Writes Herr Christians: "I wish
to God you had the guts to start
something. I would like to show
you how quickly and nicely we
can finish it."
Christians sent me a printed
copy of his "General Orders." In
this document will be found the
military plans of the Crusader
White Shirts for the overthrow f
both the local and the national
governments. Christians advo-
vates violence, and he gives defi-
nite directions as to how it will be
used by his organization against
the government.
I also received an interesting
letter from one of Christians' or-
ganizers (on the same stationery),
but this organizer remains anony-
mous, as do so many of the Fas-
cists who threaten by telephone
and letter. I know this from a
quite adequate experience. Writes
the organizer for the White Shirts:
"You say that Fascism is a
present menace. Well, if you
Reds want to call it a menace,
do so, and we'll try to live up to
your expectations. Let me tell
you one thing: if tho Fascists
ever get the upper hand in this
country, they will not tolerate
any radical, Communist, lying,
atheistic, unpatriotic ami snoop-
ing clergy in the pulpits of our
churches"

"The confidence of the Jewish peo-
ple in the Palestine government
has been shattered," is the keynote
of an official declaration of the
Jewish position in Palestine issued
at the close of the extraordinary
session of the Zionist Actions Com-
mittee. In a lengthy statement
that voices the fears of Jewry that
the British government is about
to "annul Jewish rights in Pales-
tine and break its pledges to the
Jewish people," the Zionist leaders,
in a sharp departure from the pre-
viously friendly note struck when
referring to the Palestine govern-
ment, charge that the latter has
failed to maintain public order and
by its laxity has encouraged ter-
rorists.
The possibility of a suspension
of Jewish immigration to Palestine
is bitterly condemned in the state-
ment, which also declares that the
Jews demand "the duty and privi-
lege of all peoples barbarously at-
tacked: the right to defend them-
selves."
"After fifteen centuries of neg-
lect and decay Palestine has, as a
result of Jewish work, seen an eco-

whose benefits are enjoyed by Jew
and Arab alike," the statement
points out. "The Jews are not en-
emies of the Arabs. Months of
terror have not destroyed the bond
of their common origin, many cen-
turies of a common civilization and
common interests which link the
Jewish people and the Palestine
Arabs in the upbuilding of Pal-

Zionist Leaders Meet With British
Colonial Secretary
"Anytl ing Goes," which starts
Sunday at the Tivoli Theatre, is
i. jolly, tuneful, entertaining pic-
ture. Bing Crosby is the featured
player In this Bong-starred pres-
entation of the popular Broadway
musical comedy. He is assisted by
such favorites as Ethel Merman,
Charlie Buggies, Ida Lupino and
Grace Bradley.
Crosby is a knight errant aboard
a transatlantic liner. His borrowed
passport gets him into trouble, for
il belongs to a public enemy. Thai
passport forces him t<> tumble in
and out of sundry disguises with
hilarious consequences. The whole
ship becomes a madhouse of fun,
when Crosby stops at nothing to
divest passengers of their cos-
tumes. In the end. he nets his
reward with an elusive romance.
Outstanding in the lyric line
are the parodies on "You're the
Top." which Crosby and Miss Mer-
man Bing.
Amid snow drifts and ice bar-
riers romance bloomed at fifty be-
low! Fur clad, and parka cov-
ered, Robert Montgomery and
Myrna Loy fall in love.
Tin' new picture is 'Petticoat
Fever," coming to the Seventh
Avenue Theatre, starting Sunday.
Montgomery plays the part of
a lonely young wireless operator
in a bleak Arctic station, ninety
miles from the nearest Kskimo Vil-
lage.
His life :s brightened consider-
ably when an engaged couple. Myr-
na Loy and Reginald Owen, find

Dr. Chaim Wei/.mann, president of
the Jewish Agency for Palestine,
and David Ben Gurion, chairman
of its executive, have had a long
interview with Colonial Secretary
Ornuby Gore regarding the
strained situation in Palestine.

of that same will. It came into
being not because this eminent
leader or that summoned it. Had
these leaders not been expressions
of a folk-will, they would have
issued their summons in vain.
Hence, too, a criticism of undem-
ocratic procedure is of little im-
portance. Something happened
more spontaneous and significant
than the counting of noses. Jews
went to Geneva from the ends of
the earth because the will of the
Jewish people toward organic sur-
vival look, brought, drove them
there.
Therefore this is a point of su-
preme importancetherefore mere
opposition to the Zionist move-
ment or mere opposition to the
World Congress are actions and
gestures devoid of meaning in the
world of either things or thoughts.
It is true enough that all great
things among all peoples and in
all departments of human life come
into being despite obstacles, hin-
drances, opposition. Every posi-
tive result is the fruit not only of
positive but also of negative forces.
Yet every Jew who merely opposes
today any authentic manifestation
of his people's will toward organic
survival is a mere obstacle, a mere
meaninglesss dead weight. Creat-
ively co-operative criticism is a
different matter; it may be or ;t
may become a part of the folk-will
of the people. But negation is
meaningless, is dead, is matter out
of place. Destiny will sweep the
mere no-sayera aside; history will
not stop even to remember them.

A. to Hold AMERICAN-NAZI GROUPS All-Day Picnic PURVEYORS OF POISON By LUDWIG LEWISOHN This column is copyrighted hy the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted. Thy first Jewish World Congress has closed its sessions in Geneva. It has become incorporated under Swiss law; it has established certain bureaus and departments; it has determined to try to co-ordinate the work of the moral, political and material helf-help of all Israel. It will be said justly enough that so far all these projects are more or less on paper. It will be aid of the congress (especially by its original opponents) that speeches have been made in Geneva and that speeches do not affect the world of practice. The Jewish situation in Germany, Poland, Roumania remains unchanged; the Arabs in Palestine continue to murder innocent civilians; the tide of anti-Semitism in the world is not stemmed. All this is true with a surface truth. The identical objections ; ould have been brought and were brought against the first Zionist Congress in 1807. With much more force, with much more justice. A handful of obscure men, representing a few handfuls of people whom all the world, including the Jewish world, considered crack-brained, considered too crazy and unimportant to be even dangerous, met in Basle and, as it must have seemed to anyone who stopped to notice them then, passed pompous resolutions and made pompous demands of the world. Yet only 21 years later —which is less than an instant in history these demands and this program were embodied in the treaties of the great powers of Europe and ratified by the congress of the United States. In the immediate condition of the world no man of sense can be optimistic either in respect of the world as a whole or in respect of the fate of the Jewish people. Never indeed within the memory of living men have things looked ~o Mack and. above all. so impenetrably obscure to any good or any hope of betterment. Yet If Jews, the historical people among the world's peoples, would be more mindful of the character of the historic processes as experience reveals them for all men to see, they would be able to preserve a cor,' of equanimity, even within the thousand discouragements of this age. The venerable Simon Dubnow, the greatest Jewish historian of all time, the most eminent of living historiographers in the world, nade the point at the beginning of his final draft of the "World History of the Jewish People" in ten volumes (translated from the original Russian manuscript into Hebrew and German and not yet, scandalously enough, into English) that all previous histories of the Jews, including the nevertheless memorable work of Graetz, consisted of two elements: one, a history of literature; two, a martyrology. In other words, Jewish historians, most of whom arose during the period of emancipation and assimilation, consciously or not, omitted from their books the Jewish people as the active subject or bearer of its own history and as the source of those forces, both positive and negative, by means of which that people managed to live on. He proved that the Jewish people had been in all ages sociologically active or creative within its often terrific limitations. Only through this activity, community forming, centripetal, organizing and reorganizing the life of the people as such, is the lurvival of the Jews to be explained at all. Peoples who lost that will toward the organic have, in fact, not survived; Israel never lost that will. Therefore Israel has survived. Let us take a single example of the contrary process. Rome conquered Gaul. The Gauls remained. The modern Frenchman must be by ultimate descent as much Gaul as Roman. He knows it; he is proud of it; gaulois, gallic or gaulish is a favorite adjective among Frenchmen. But the Gauls as a separate, self-sustaining ethnological and linguistic entity lost their will to survive. They, as sucn, have gone for many centuries; of their Celtic tongue only a few vestiges irrecognizably latinized remain in the French language. The Jews, conquered from within and from without over and over again, had the will toward organic and separate' survival. A highly literate people, they not only preserved through tile ages their original mother tongue, Hebrew. They I did more than that, amazingly more: they look the languages that were forced upon them by their environment ami re-created them into their image and for. as it were, their private use. They tinned German into Yiddish and Spanish into Spaniolish and the Arabic ol North Africa into that Judaeo-Arabic which survives vigorously side by side with both Hebrew and Arabic. In brief, those who deny that th.' Jews are a people with ,h.' irresistible will toward organic survival aa people, fly in the face not only of common sense and daily observation, but of the irrefutable fa.-.s of history and linguistic science, Now the /-ion st movement, from iis humble beginnings the better part of a century ago on. was and is an integral part and direct manit'e-tation of the Jewish people's continuous will toward organic survival and the first World Jewish Congress, belli in Geneva th s August, is another manifestation (Continued on page 6) What promises to be one of the outstanding events of the summer is the all day picnic being sponsored by the Young Men's Hebrew Association on Sunday, September 6th, at Hardie's Casino, Miami Beach. Delicious foods and horn-.' cooked goodies will be sold luring the day. (James and contests will be played and prizes will be awarded to the winners. The public :s urged to attend and enjoy an exceptionally pleasant day. In charge of arrangements is a committee of thi' Y. W. II. A. consisting of Mesdames M. Moss, Nat Blumberg, II. Feinberg, Max Schenkman, Sam Shindel and Max Daum. The following day a Labor Day dance will be enjoyed at the Miami Beach Golf and Country Club, beginning a: '.' p. in. Admission will be only on cents. By REV. DR. L. From the Series: "Fascism at Our fiates" By DR. [.. M. BIRKHEAD In this, the third of his articles on the spread of Fascist anti-Semitic movements in the United States, Dr. Birkhead, who has already told the readers of the Jewish Floridian about the links between German Nazis and American anti-Semitic groups, begins to enumerate the most important of the Fascist antiSemitic groups in this country. --The Editor. Jews to Suffer If Fascists Win New York (WNS)—In the event of a Fascist triumph in the Spanish civil war the Jews of Spain will find themselves victims of a reenactment of the Expulsion of 1402. This in effect was the statement made by General Emilio Mola, one of the leading rebel commanders, in a copyrighted interview with an Associated Press correspondent at BurgOS, rebel headquarters. Asked by the correspondent, "What plans have you for a new Spanish state?" General Mola answered frankly: "Spain will be governed in a fashion which will make it impossible for power ever again to fall into the hands of dirty politicians, Free Masons. Jews anil similar parasites on human society." General Mola's statement confirms evidence in documents seized in rebel headquarters in Barcelona and Madrid, revealing plans for a Jewish expulsion by the Fascists. Barcelona (WNS) While the Jews in Spanish Morocco, which iin the hands of the rebels, are suffering persecution, exploitation and pogroms, the Jewish community here is physically safe, but economically distraught, it was declared by A. Glanczstein, vice-president of the Barcelona kehilla. after a survey of the situation. Over 1,000 Jewish families, most of them Greeks, Turks, Bulgarians, Roumanians and Hungarians, have lefl Barcelona since '.lie outbreak of the civil war. Those who have remained are facing hut cause of the growing shorta of food. All Jewish-owned shops are closed. In my first article I said that Sinclair Lewis was being criticized for making the Fascism of his "It Can't Happen Here" too much an invitation of the Hitler variety. Well, you see now why Fascism an 1 tnti-Semitism in America are o much like the Nazi brand. After all. children .dp resemble their parents. These American Jew haters are either distributing the Streicher product coming directly from the British Imperial Fascist League or they are translating, transposing and printing the stuff in their own publications. Streicher has sworn that he will reproduce on American soil exactly what he has done in Germany. If America does not awaken shortly he will without doubt carry out his threat. I have recently visited the headquarters and interviewed the leaders of many of the important Fascist and anti-Semitic organizations in America, They are more active now than ever before and they are reaching an increasing number of American citizens. The list of more than one hundred of these groups is in itself disconcerting. The names and plans and purposes of a f<-w • %  ( the more important ones should be made familiar to every American who believes in the Bill of Rights and in tolerance and decency toward minority groups and who has contempt for racketeers in racial hate and religious bigotry. I shall refer to these groups more or less in the order of their importance, Edmondson Economic Service (M Washington St., New York Cityl: Robert Edward Edmondson is the directing head of this service. He told me that he had representatives in nearly all the states who order his literature hi quantities and distribute it widely. Recently Mr. Edmondson has been sued by Mayor I.a Guardia of Now York City lor libelling Miss Frani ivrkins, Miss Virginia C. Gildersleeve, dean of Barnard Coll i and the Jewish religion. On tl e whole. Edmondson puts out the most effective and the most vi-I cious anti-Semitic propaganda in the United States. It is written down to a low intellectual level and it is brief anil slanderous and M. BIRKHEAD unscrupulous in its attacks on the Jews. He has published nearly a hundred pamphlets and they have had a circulation of approximately six million. Mr. Edmondson inI formed me that his pamphlets are sold and the income from them pays for their publication. I have received many of the Edmondson pamphlets free and I know others who have also. Of course, Edmondson is subsidized by someone. Colonel E. N. Sanctuary, one of the leading American Jew baiters, admitted to me that he had contributed to Edmondson's cause. The World Alliance Against Jewish Aggressiveness (Presbyterian Building. 156 Fifth ave.. New York City): This clearing house for anti-Semitism is headed by Colonel E. N. Sanctuary, 'olonel Sanctuary is a frequent speaker at religious gatherings, patriotic meetings and forums. He., covers the eastern part of the United States with his speaking campaign against the Jews, but his pamphlets and books go everywhere. He is in touch with all of the antiSemites in the country. Those who are interested in halting the spread of anti-Semitism in America should take more than a 1 cursory glance at Colonel Sanctuary. He is the author of "Are These Things So?" and "Tainted Contacts," both unscrupulous attacks on the Jews, as well as numerous pamphlets along the same line. He belongs to many patriotic organizations and to several of the anti-Semitic groups. The colonel is tremendously in terested now in getting the Republican party to sponsor a country-wide circulation of Harry A. Jung's pamphlet on "The Man Behind the Men Behind the President." This pamphlet is an untruthful and unscrupulous pamphlet about Felix Frankfurter. It is through Frankfurther that the Jews control America, according to this pamphlet. Other assaults on the Jews are in process of publication lone on Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt as Jew-controlled will be out soon) anl Colonel Sanctuary and his associates are in conference with Republican leaders about giving these anti-Semitic documents a country-wide circulation. Colonel Sanctuary contributes to the printing of Edmondson's pamphlets and he informed me thai Gentile lawyers are donating their services in defense of Edmondson against the LaGuardia suit. Colonel Sanctuary Beemed proud of his membership in Harry A. Jung's organization, the "American Vigilant Intelligence Federation" of Chicago. In this group members are known by number and not by name. Colonel Sanctuary, when I asked him for a New York book store from which I could secure a copy (Continued on Page •'!)

It came into being not because this eminent leader or that summoned it. Had these leaders not been expressions of a folk-will, they would have issued their summons in vain. Hence, too, a criticism of undemocratic procedure is of little importance. Something happened more spontaneous and significant than the counting of noses. Jews went to Geneva from the ends of the earth because the will of the Jewish people toward organic survival look, brought, drove them there. Therefore this is a point of supreme importance—therefore mere opposition to the Zionist movement or mere opposition to the World Congress are actions and gestures devoid of meaning in the world of either things or thoughts. It is true enough that all great things among all peoples and in all departments of human life come into being despite obstacles, hindrances, opposition. Every positive result is the fruit not only of positive but also of negative forces. Yet every Jew who merely opposes today any authentic manifestation of his people's will toward organic survival is a mere obstacle, a mere meaninglesss dead weight. Creatively co-operative criticism is a different matter; it may be or ; t may become a part of the folk-will of the people. But negation is meaningless, is dead, is matter out of place. Destiny will sweep the mere no-sayera aside; history will not stop even to remember them.

Ph. 2-2131 Zurich (WNS-Palcor Agency) — "The confidence of the Jewish people in the Palestine government has been shattered," is the keynote of an official declaration of the Jewish position in Palestine issued at the close of the extraordinary session of the Zionist Actions Committee. In a lengthy statement that voices the fears of Jewry that the British government is about to "annul Jewish rights in Palestine and break its pledges to the Jewish people," the Zionist leaders, in a sharp departure from the previously friendly note struck when referring to the Palestine government, charge that the latter has failed to maintain public order and by its laxity has encouraged terrorists. The possibility of a suspension of Jewish immigration to Palestine is bitterly condemned in the statement, which also declares that the Jews demand "the duty and privilege of all peoples barbarously attacked: the right to defend themselves." "After fifteen centuries of neglect and decay Palestine has, as a result of Jewish work, seen an ecoPage Five nomic 1 and cultural regeneration whose benefits are enjoyed by Jew and Arab alike," the statement points out. "The Jews are not enemies of the Arabs. Months of terror have not destroyed the bond of their common origin, many centuries of a common civilization and common interests which link the Jewish people and the Palestine Arabs in the upbuilding of Palestine. Our desire is to live in peace and co-operation with the Arabs, in accordance with the prinYaphank, Long Island (WNS)— barred from the official celebration of the Long Island Tercente1 nary, 12,000 German-American Nazis held their own cvelebration here and studiously avoided any references to Jews or to Nazism's anti-Semitic policies.

SEPTEMBER 1. 1986 Vol. 9—No. :i Two Universities Celebrate Perhaps the most striking illustration of the vast difference between free America and Nazified Germany is given by the difference between th? celebration of the 550th annivrsary of Heidelberg University as staged in the Third Reich and the marking of the tercentenary of Harvard University in the I'nited States. At Heidelberg every effort was made to confine knowledge within the extremely narrow limits set by the Nazi racial theory. The program for the Harvard exercises has as its aim the proclamation of a universal culture, an all-embracing study of the sum total of civilization. We in America know that a fusion of various racial and cultural elements makes for national strength and intellectual vigor; the history of our country has taught us that. And the history of learning in America impresses this lesson even more deeply upon us: All artificial lines of demarcation between individuals belonging to different religious or racial groups must be erased if science and mankind are to make progress in the true sense of the word. In accordance with this Harvard has chosen an inspiring keynote for its tercentennial celebration, the thesis that science is the greatest unifying force in our world today. Another significant contrast between the Harvard and Heidelberg exercises lies in the choice of the participating scholars. The Heidelberg fete gave places of honor to professors who glorified the patched-up remains of the exploded theory of Aryan superiority. At Harvard sixty-six distinguished scholars of many different nationalities—including a number of the non-Aryans against whom Heidelberg speakers ranted—will he given the additional recognition of honorary degrees. The difference between Heidelberg and Harvard, in other words, is the difference between stultifying medievalism and modern progress. Officials Bar Flaming Cross at Klan Rally Peekskill (WNS) — Following protests from Catholics and Jews, the town counsel of Cortlandt issued instructions forbidding the display of a flaming "fiery kross" by the resurgent Ku Klux Klan at its field day celebration on September 5th, 0th and 7th at Lafayette field. Revived after eight years of inactivity, the hooded order's Westchester county division has distributed leaflets announcing that the "Klan Rides Again." Father Francis X. Doyle, pastor of St. Patrick's Roman CatholicChurch at Verplanck, had demanded a ban on the klan's fiery cross because the cross is a religious emblem and should not be burned. MIAMI NOTES By HARRY SCHWARTZ Welcome, members and friends, to our gigantic two-day holiday celebration. 'Tis but once a year that we find ourselves in a position to offer our many friends the opportunity to attend two such gala affairs as will be your treat to attend. The first takes place Sunday, September 6 at Hardie's Casino in the form of an all day picnic and outing, which is free to all. There will be plenty of contests and games to entertain the tiny tots as well as the grown-ups. Bring the whole mishpoocha and spend a full day with the "Y," starting at 10 a. m. The second event will be a frolic and dance Monday night at the Miami Beach Golf and Country Club (rain or shine). An excellent orchestra has been secured, plus many outstanding entertainers to assure all attending a splendid evening. Tickets are selling at 50 cents per person and, according to advance sales, a goodly sized crowd will be there. Let us all get behind the "Y" and help make this Labor Day one to be remembered. British Jew Baiter Convicted for Inciting Talk London (WNS)—The first conviction against an anti-Semite for inciting talk against the Jews of Great Britain was recorded in OKI Street Police Court here when Magistrate F. 0. Langley fined John Penfold, 45, an auctioneer, 40 shillings and placed him under 50 pounds bond as a guarantee of good behavior for the next year. Penfold was accused by the police I of demanding the expulsion of all Jews from England in an address at an open air Fascist meeting in the East End. They quoted Penfold as having said he would "turn all Jews out of Britain, headed by Leslie Hore-Bejrsha, minister of transport, and Sir Philip Sassoon,' under-secretary for air. Epstein (the sculptor) would be there with his grotesque monstrosities to keep | the birds away from the Wailing Wall." The police officer arrested : Penfold when an angry crowd of Jews became unruly. London (WNS)—The suicide of Dr. Daniel Hertz, brilliant 20-yearold son of Chief Rabbi Joseph He old son of Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz, has created a stir here. Young Hertz killed himself by taking poison. No reason for his act is known, but it is reported that \ he feared he was suffering from an incurable malady. Bea Silver presided at the women's meeting last Tuesday for the first time in over two months, during which time she was vacationing in New York. "Are You a Good Sport?" was the topic chosen for discussion with each of the members present proving to be 100'< sports, according to their own answers. Janet Kaiasik was appointed secretary of the Y'. W., due to the resignation of Miss Nell Lehrman, who will be Mrs. ? in December. Honoring Bea Silver's return, Miss Janet Kaiasik wrote this little poem: .lust another greeting, warm and true, That's coming to you. There's joy for the morning, There's cheer for the day, There's peace in the evening, There's hope in it, too, And running all through it There's friendship for you. Our diamondball team is recuuerating from their many victories. The "Y" Senior Division defeated the Junior group in a grudge battle last Sunday by a 7 to 0 score, to quiet the youngsters' ballyhoo down to a whisper. Prospects look mighty fine for a real team next year, with several of the Juniors displaying good diamondball talent. At this writing the "Y" is still in a tie for third place, with but two games left on their schedule. Inclement weather caused a postponement of their game with the leading WIOD-News team to a later date. There will be a great deal of activity taking place all next week for the members and friends of the Junior Division, Women's Division and Men's Division, due to the oncoming Rosh Hashanah Holidays, which start Thursday, SepPurveyors Of Poison (Continued from Page 1) of the "Protocols," referred me to "The league for Constitutional Government" (18 East 48th st.). Here I bought a copy of the "Protocols," interviewed the leader, John B. Snow, had a lecture on antiSemitism (by Mr. Snow) and secured other anti-Jewish literature. An organization set up for purely patriotic purposes—the League for Constitutional Government — has developed into a "hot" Jew baiting society. This has happened also to Mr. Jung's aforementioned patriotic group—the American Vigilant Intelligence Federation. One of Colonel Sanctuary's pet aversions is the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America. It is an apostate Protestant organization sold out to the Jews and gone over to Communism, according to the colonel. Sanctuary really was a colonel in the World war. He claims to have first hand information that the Russian revolution was a Jewish plot financed by international Jewish bankers. I did not see the "first hand information." But the colonel has seen it, and I should take it on faith. Typical of all the replies which I have received from the anti-Semitic leaders concerning the authenticity of the Protocols is that of Sanctuary. As a matter of fact, every one of these Fascist leaders said exactly the same thing in almost the same words. Said the colonel: "I am not concerned with the authenticity of the Protocols. I agree with Henry Ford, who said that he didn't care whether the Protocols were authentic or not. They explain better than any other document what is happening now. The Protocols reveal a plan of organized conspiracy to establish a world Jewish super-government on the structure of the League of Nations. Young man, you ought to read the Protocols if you want to understand what is going on. It is all in these documents." Oh, yes, the colonel also informed me that the New Deal really a "Jew Deal") is outlined in the Protocols. He called my attention to a pamphlet of Edmondson's which presents the "Damning Parallels" between the New Deal and Protocols, and "proves" that "the Roosevelt Jewish-Radical Regime" is fulfilling the Protocol prophecies. Crusader White Shirts (of Chattanooga, Tenn.): George W. Christians is the commander-in-chief of this military Fascist and anti-Semitic organization. Christians is fully confident that he will become the Hitler of America. He makes no effort to conceal his Fascism, as do some of the anti-Semites. Many of the anti-Semitic groups which shout the praises of Hitler still deny that they are Fascis*. They merely want to save the constitution from the Communistlew.-, who have conspired to destroy modern civilization. But Christians, at least, is frank and honest about his Fascist leanings. He sends out his mail in envelopes which have in large red letters in the upper left hand corner the words "The American Fascists." Christians t is mote imitaitive of Hitler than any of the other Fascist leaders. He has had direct connection with such avowed Nazi agents as Oscar Pfaus, head of the German Alliance. I have had numerous communications from Christians. He writes on stationery with a large red cross printed up and down on the sheet. He informs me in one of his letters that: "Wle have been flooding this country from one end to the other for five years with the most inflammable, revolutionary literature that we could devise and today we have most powerful set of organizations in the nation. Some of the boys, like the Black Legion in Detroit and quite a few other places, have been getting a little too impatient for their own good. Revolutions arc not very nice, are they. 1 Before this thing is over the Black Legion may have reason to be ashamed of themselves for being such pikers." The commander-in-chief also wrote me, in the same letter, about my proposed federal investigation of Fascist activities (I had telegraphed President Roosevelt asking for such an investigation). Writes Herr Christians: "I wish to God you had the guts to start something. I would like to show you how quickly and nicely we can finish it." Christians sent me a printed copy of his "General Orders." In this document will be found the military plans of the Crusader White Shirts for the overthrow f both the local and the national governments. Christians advovates violence, and he gives definite directions as to how it will be used by his organization against the government. I also received an interesting letter from one of Christians' organizers (on the same stationery), but this organizer remains anonymous, as do so many of the Fascists who threaten by telephone and letter. I know this from a quite adequate experience. Writes the organizer for the White Shirts: "You say that Fascism is a present menace. Well, if you Reds want to call it a menace, do so, and we'll try to live up to your expectations. Let me tell you one thing: if tho Fascists ever get the upper hand in this country, they will not tolerate any radical, Communist, lying, atheistic, unpatriotic ami snooping clergy in the pulpits of our churches" (Copyright, 1986, by Seven Art* Feature Syndicate) tember 17th, through the litth.
