THE WORLD'S WINDOW
Palestine and the Future
By LUDWIG LEWISOHN
(This column U copyrighted by the
Seven Art* Feature Syndicate. Repro-
duction in whole or in part atrictly for-
bidden. Any infringement will be prose-
cuted.)
It is fairly safe to assert that
the dispatching of an entire divi-
sion of British troops to Palestine
will mean the ultimate suppression
ot violence. It means one thing
more: it means Britain's intense
realisation of the importance of
Palestine to the Empire. The vir-'
tual independence of Egypt, the re-
cent detachment of Aden from In-
dian administrative control, va-
rious other details of imperial pol-
icy emphasize the crucial position
of Palestine within the larger
schemes of British policy. Haifa
can command the Eastern Medit-
erranean, aircraft India-bound can
land in Palestine, the Suez Canal
becomes less indispensable. Brit-
ain, though muddling along and
criminally procrastinating, will not
permit Palestine to become so tur-
bulent as to slip from her grasp.
So far, so good. Only it is not:
very far from our point of view. I
So long as we remain the mere
lawns of empire we can never be I
certain that Britain or a given
British administration will not con-
sider us a nuisance rather than a
help. There is luckily a large and
sound and influential mass of pub-
lic opinion in England that sees
clearly the fact that the value of
Pi ostine with n the empire de-
pends, as things have shaped them-
selves, on us, on our loyalty, v>n
that pax Judaica which we are
eager and able to establish there.
And the superb bearing and pol-
icies of our Yishub during these
troubled months should have gone
far to consolidate that section of
public opinion and extend it.
It takes no very prophetic vision |
to foresee a combination of events!
within the next half century which .
might make the loyalty of a large!
and firmly established Jewish com- ,
m unity in Palestine a means of |
actually saving the British Empire.
But that is, of course, not what
we are going to Palestine for; that
is not the reason why our people
hunger and thirst after Palestine.
It is well; it is honorable; it is
realistically the best we have and
the best we can do. Granting that,
however, we had better now take
a lcn; view; granting that, we had
b e. build (within the British
En lire, to be sure) toward the
future.
It h not certain that we have.
do.;, so. It is not certain that we,
too. have not muddled through in
many respects. It is not certain
that we did not "repress" the
Arab attacks of 1921 and 1929, de-
liberately forget them and dismiss
them from our minds. It was par-
donable enough. Our need is so
great and so dire. The spiritual
need of world Jewry to be able to
think of one place, the homeland,
us a place without a burning and
intricate problem, is so great and
so dire. We wanted this point of
repose, and hope, not to be trou-
bled by the swirling maddening
disasters of the world. Well, we
shall have to take up that burden
now and add it to our other bur-
den.-. This, at least, will be worth
Liaring. This one, at least, we
shall be bearing for some definite
purpose.
We must establish a modus Vi-
vendi with the Arab population.
We have depended too much on the
economic benefits that we unques-
tionably brought to the Arabs. This
dependence is part of the miser-
able heresy that man lives by
bread alone. We, too. have been
infected by that heresy. We must
seek to convince the Arabs that we
are honorably planning a bi-na-
tional state and that even when
we constitute a majority of the
population the Arab will be as free
and self-determining, as much at
home as are the French Swiss of
Geneva and Lausanne within the
predominantly German Swiss Re-
public. We must convince them
that Nablus will bear the same re-
lation, whatever comes or goes, to
Tel Aviv that Geneva bears to Zu
rich, that Ghent bears to Brussels,
that Quebec bears to Toronto. Al-
though a rigid cantonal system '*
impossible there seems to be a
tendency within Palestine, brought
about by natural geographic fac-
tors, to create population zones.
It is a question, therefore,
whether our brusk refusal to con-
sider the establishment of a legis-
lative councl was not an error 'n
diplomacy. It might have been |
better, it may be better today to
consent to a legislative council j
with the following provisions and
safeguards: First, that the coun- I
cil shall not contravene the man-
date and that, therefore, neither,
immigration nor land sale nor al-
lotment shall fall within its pow-
ers; second, that the franchise
shall depend on a stringent liter-
acy test applied by mixed commis-
sions of Jews and Arabs with the
British councillors; third, that bona
fide Jewish immigrants be natur-
alized within one month of their
taking up residence; fourth, that
representation in the council based
on population figures be revised
on the basis of an annual census.
In brief, it might have been bet- f
ter some months ago, it may be j
better some months hence for us
to consent to this form of sup-
posedly democratic control, while
definitely, by our provisos, safe-
guarding its democratic function-
ing for us.
Of our willingness to be polit-

Tel Aviv Mourns
Mayor Dizengoff:
Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency)
Permanent tribute will be paid to
the memory of Meier Dizengoff,
late mayor and founder of Tel
Aviv, by the Palestine Friends of
the Hebrew University and by the
Jewish National Fund, it is an-
nounced here. A chair will be
founded in the Hebrew University
to commemorate Mayor Dizengoff,
and the National Fund will estab-
lish a new forest to be named after
Km. His name was also given 1o
the first child born after his death
in Tel Aviv.
.Mayor Dizengoff left a modest
I state, the major part of which
has been bequeathed to the Tel
Aviv museum, which he founded.
His will, dated January 1. 1986,
after being opened, was trans-
iCrred to the Tel Aviv rabbinate
for validation. Although the con-
tents of the will have not yet been
published it is reported that Mayor
Dizengoff, who helped to acquire
for the Jewish population great
sections of the valuable real es-
tate of Tel Aviv, had only a small
sum at the .i ... o.' ilia dtath. Th-j
museum, t which he be .ueathed
the major pa, t f his funds, lepre-
s e n I s the principal cultural
achievement of his life, having
been opened early this year with aj
splendid collection of various rep- '
681 lltations of Jewish art.
As Jews throughout Palestine
v. nt into mourning for their irst
citizen, with flags of all public
and many private institutions fly-
ing at half mast, the spiritual tes-
tament of Mayor Dizengoff was
published. In this testamcnt,writ-,
ten on July 12th, directions for
his funeral were given and
thoughts on approaching death re-
vealed. "The thought of death
does not sadden me," he wrote.
The mayor requested that his
funeral cortege be headed by chil-
dren, whom he loved deeply. Next
in line he wanted the youth, among
whom he said he had always count-
ed himself. Following them he
asked that women march, "the
mothers of the younger genera-
tion." The general public was to
bring up the rear.
A greater part of the 150,000
Jews in this all-Jewish city was
in the line of march or throngeJ
the streets as the funeral proces-
sion for Mayor Dizengoff filed by.
Observers estimated that more
than 80,000 people participated in
the funeral itself.
.Messages of condolence poured
into the home of the late mayor
from all parts of the world, and
into the offices of the Jewish
Agency and the Tel Aviv Munici-
pal Council. In his telegram to
Moshe Shertok, head of the polit-
ical department of the Jewish
Agency, Sir Arthur Wauchope de-
clared: "His outstanding achieve-
ments will long remain as a me-
morial to his name."
Communist Charge Anti-Semite Is
Vigorously Denied Guilty of Libel
New York (WNS)The charge
that Adolf Hitler, under the guise
of attacking communism, is ac-
tually making an assault upon de-
mocracy and world peace was made
by Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of
the American Jewish Committee,
end Sol M. Stroock, chairman of
its executive committee. Taking
their text from Hitler's "Mein
Kampf" that "Propaganda must
not serve the objective truth, es-
pecially not insofar as it might
bring out something favorable for
the opponent but propaganda
must serve uninterruptedly its own
purpose," the statement of these
Jewish leaders branded official
declarations made at the recent
Nazi party congress at Nurem-
berg, as a "farrago of mendalities
and imitations, tending to "the
Nazi destruction of democratic
ideals dear to free people every-
where."
In their statement, the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee spokesmen
placed emphasis upon refutation of
those Hitler charges which linked
the J( ws t>> communism. After
ha\ ng deprived the German Jews
of their civil rights, their status as
citizens, their peace of mind and
their hope for the future, they de-
clared, the Nazis' leadership has
poured abuse upon their good name
and that of the Jews of the wor! !
at large, whom they are ceasele -
ly maligning. IViis time, it is
stated, the assault upon the repu- '
tation of the Jews is made under
the cloak of an attack upon com-
munism. German Jewry, before
Hitler's chancellorship, the state-
ment points out, had less than 300,-
000 voters. However, G,000,000
tommunist votes were cast during'
the republic. Moreover, Jewish
leaders in Germany in the elec-
tions in which Hindenberg, Hitler
and Thaelmann were candidates,
urged German Jewry to vote for
Hindenberg, their own economic in-1
terests having made them "dia-
metrically opposed to communism."
i
Not one prominent or even well
known Jewish leader, adds the.
statement, was ever identified with
the communist party in Germany.
The 7(1 communist deputies in the
reichstag of 1930 included only one
Jew and there were no Jews what-
ever among the 81 communist dep-
uties of the 1933 reichstag. Refer-
ring to Russia, the statement de-
clares that only two of the 3(5 com-
missars who constitute the Soviet
government are Jews. "The rec-
ord is clear Hitler's verbal as-
saults are myths of his own crea-
tion," the statement emphasizes.
LONDON (WNS)Fascist anti-
Semitic agitation in Great Britain
received its first important legal
setback when Justice Greaves-
| Lord in Old Bailey Court sentenced
Arnold Leese, editor of the vio-
lently anti-Jewish publication, The
I-ascist, to six months in prison
| after a jury had found him guilty
of publishing libelous statements
' against the Jews. Walter White-
head, printer of The Fascist, was
also convicted, but was let off with
a fine of $100. The verdicts
against Leese and Whitehead are
being hailed throughout England
as a major victory against Fascist
propaganda, since this case was
regarded ai a test of the possibil-
ity of stemming anti-Jewish agita.
tion through legal action.
In sentencing Leese Justice
Greaves-Lord said that the writ-
ings of the defendant had "preju-
j diced the lawful and customary in-
tercourse between Jews and non-
' iwa to the endangerment of peace-
ful illations." "I am satisfied,"
I the Judge declared, "that nothing
! can be more mischievous to the
public than the circulation of state-
ments of this kind. I can appreci-
ate that behind what you have
done there is possibly a belief
amounting in its intensity almost
to fanaticism regarding the truth
or otherwise of these statements.
Tha. the public well bring can be
te e o. .his kindand I call it stuff
advisedlyI cannot imagine. Noth-
' ing can be more harmful to the
public weal than that. There is
one thing you have completely for-
gottenthat the law of England
is available to every subject with
equality. I should have preferred
to inflict a monetary penalty on
you, but I rather gather you pre-
fer the alternative."
To Whitehead Justice Greaves-
Lord said: "All I want to do is
inflict a penalty which will be a
warning that a printer, who after
all controls a powerful means of
intercourse between one section of
the community and another, shall
not use that medium carelessly."
Six charges had been brought
against Leese and Whitehead, but
the jury found them guilty of only
two, namely, that they printed and
published libelous statements so as
to effect public mischief, and that
they conspired together and with
others unknown to print and make
public libelous and scandalous
statements concerning the Jews.
Both the accused denied that they
had any connection with Sir Os-
wald Mosley. Mr. Leese's paper
is the organ of the Imperial Brit-
ish Fascists, the more extremist
group of anti-Semites.

Schrader and Walter Kappe, ed-
itorfs of the Deutscher Weckruf

istrate Farrell in Yorkville Court
after they were arraigned on a
charge of libel preferred against
them by Jane Wurzberger, daugh-
ter of Dorothy Waring, a writer
and assistant to Joseph Ridder,
head of the German division of
the Democratic National Commit-
tee.

The Answer
We cannot but commend the righteous indignation of
our fellow citizens at the untrue and uncalled-for approval
of Hitler policies by men of the cloth. In the land of liberty
and freedom it is rather incongruous for preachers of the
Gospel to approve actions of Hitler or in the slightest way,
directly or indirectly, praise him.
Hitlerism. as has been so well stated by Jews and non-
Jews throughout the world, is not a Jewish problem ... it is
a problem of the world and every liberty-loving individual
. every Catholic Protestant I.aborite Mason
. every human being with but a decent thought in mind
has suffered and is today suffering at the hands of this dic-
tator and stifler of human rights.
Apologies, retractions may help however, the harm
has been done. We feel that speeches, interviews, etc., as
(riven to the daily nress by men like Dr. Elisha King or Dr.
Vliet last week were ill conceived and ill advised. We feel
that on careful consideration they will regret having given
these interviews We cannot believe that men of their
type really meant to convey to the public what the printed
interview told-
We can combat these ill advised statements and similar
remarks in only one way every Jew must direct the true
facts to the attention of his fellow citizens every non-Jew
who is liberal minded, honest and upright will react to the
truth Good wil1 movemen's as sponsored locally by Rabbi
Dr. Jacob H. Kai Ian. Rev. Glenn James and similar mem-
bers of the Catholic and Protestant faiths must be encour-
aged not merely y word of mouth ... but actively and
mi itantly.
By spreading the truth about Hitler about all un-
American movements we can overcome these contemptible
parasites.
True Americans will ever uphold the truth and condemn
untruths.
Plain Talk
ARE JEWS WORTH SAVING?
By A I. SEGAL
I am constantly being made
aware that I am a Jew. Every
once in awh'le I get a pain; then
I know I am a Jew.
I am not like other people who
do not suffer on account of their
racial identity. My friend, Mcln-
tosh, d lea not even suffer by rea-
Scotch stories which are al-
ways being related to him.
In fact, after Mclntosh has been
told a Scotch s'ory, he says: "Now
let me tell you one."
I have had moments of forget-
fulness of being a Jew and have
rejoiced in th? comfort of being
an equal man in the world. This
was !n the remote, happier times.
If, in those times, I ever thought
on the matter of being a Jew, it
was to say: "Being a Jew is pure-
ly a religious identity and formal
religion isn't my life."
I could feel myself to be in the
i.ame happy position as my neigh-
bor, Mr. Barkley, who never trou-
bled himself much about being an
Episcopalian.
"Religion," said Barkley, "is the
least in my life. I have quite for-
gotten that I was brought up an
1 Episcopalian."
Barkley and I seemed to be in
the same pleasant amnesia. He
is still carrying lightly (if at all)
the identity of being an Episco-
palian; but being a Jew has be-
; come the chief burden of my con-
sciousness.
Even yesterday when I picked up
a certain newspaper and cast my
eyes over the advertisements I was
stabbed to the heart, as one might
say. There was an advertisement
of a hotel which let it be known
that it solicited only Gentile pa-
tronage. This made my whole
afternoon miserable.
In fact, whichever way I turn I
am being admonished by my pain
that I am a Jew. If it isn't some-
thing that Hitler has just said, it
is a sharp pain that I get from a
friend who has just come from
around the corner.
He tells me of someth'ng ho
overheard a certain lawyer say
about Jews, or it is a speech he
heard. In this speech there was
no reference to Jews by name, but
my friend has discovered subtle
implications. I feel an anti-Se-
mitic Poignard in my back.
()r. in the evening, when l go
to the house of a friend for no
more than frivolous entertainment,
someone suddenly says: "What's
going to become of us?" and my
heart becomes desolate as by the
knell of doom.
Thus I, the Jew, live by my
pains these days. I never wanted
to live so much as a Jew as now,
what with all the enemies that en-
compass me, I am a vigorous,
Flaming Jew on account of my
pains.
* *
Sometimes I think about myself
apart from anti-Semites. What
will become of me, the Jew, after
there are no more enemies to in-
flict pain on me and to remind me
that 1 am Jewish'.' For I like to
believe that a time of justice must
come and I will be let alone.
What will I have to live for
then, as a Jew? At present I am
a living Jew merely because I de-
spise to die at the hands of these
contemptible enemies. This looks
like negative, empty living. Is
there nothing positive for which to
keep on living as a Jew?
I am trying to save myself from
my enemies, hut for what? To
what purpose should I, the Jew,
survive? Is there nothing in be-
ing a Jew except this pain? Is il
worth whi!s surviving merely to
lie preserve:. : rom one I Litter to
the next ?
It really doesn't seem worth
while to keep on living for that,
to have nothing to live by except
pain, to have nothing to live for
except to wring my hands in de-
spair and to shake my fist against
enemies.
.Since (at present) 1 am so
eager for my life as a lew, ought
I not have a very good excuse for
living? I look at my anxious
friends who are so troubled about
the destruction that seems to hang
over their heads like a low cloud.
In my optimism I believe they are
going to be saved (since it can't
happen here); but when they are
saved, what will have been saved?
They will be a lot of dead Jews
with nothing in their hearts (not
even any more pain) to give them
life as Jews.
Are they worth saving? What
for?
*
So, it seems to me, the B'nai
B'rith is on the right track to
make living Jews out of us who
are worth saving. What is a liv-
ing Jew? I should say he is one
who doesn't need pain to make him
t. el Jewish.
He knows to what purpose no
is a Jew. He is aware of the
body of ideals which is Judaism.
He is conscious of being a son of
prophets. He thinks of himself as
an actor on a great stage of his-
tory and, as a veteran trouper,
feels duty bound to make a good
showing.
He knows his story. It has to
do with the pageant that runs
back to Sinai.
As an old sufferer he does not
make himself ridiculous by crying
out his pain, as if the pain of the
Jews was the only pain in the
world. He has studied his pain
and has found it has to do with
the pain of the world and is not
apart from it.
He has come to the mind that
if his pain is to be less, the pain
of the world must be made less;
that there is no justice for him
separate from justice for all men.
He (as one to whom has been
handed down a body of social
ideals) must go bravely with men
who march toward a world more
|U8< and lovely. He much march
in front with the banners.
He walks with a high head, sure
that he has something to live for.
He is not the afflicted, timid -lew
whom the blows of enemies keep
reminded that he is a Jew. He
seems a fellow worth saving.

The B'nai B'rith (in all its
lodges) has taken up a project of
adult education by which to make
Jews feel Jewish without the aid
nf pain. By a plan which is to
extend to the most remote lodges.
Institutes of Jewish studies are
being established to teach Jews
about themselves: That they may
know who they are, whence they
tame, what they have, to what
end they live, by what they may
make themselves deserving to live.
Long ago B'nai B'rith took up
the survival of Jewish youth in
colleges through the Hillel Foun-
dation; now it turns also to us,
the adult Jews who have the will
to live but should also have some-
thing to live for.
The work of the B'nai B'rith's
Institute of Jewish Studies is un-
der the direction of Rabbi Paul
Riehman. It seems to me he is
:>n a worth while job.

Jabotinsky Would Give Palestine
Mandate to East European Powers
WARSAW (WNS) Vladimir
Jahotinsky's ambitious plan for the
emigration of 150,000 Polish Jews
to Palestine within the next ten
years also envisages a scheme for
depriving the British government
of the Mandate over Palestine and
turning the Mandate over to a
consortium of Fast European coun-
tries, among them Poland, it was
reported here. The Revisionist
leaders' plan has been enthusia--
ly approved by the Polish anti-

their own demand for the expulsion

PARIS (WNS) Although gov-
ernment circles have taken pains
to deny that Premier Leon Blum
discussed the plight of Polish
Jewry during his conference with
General Ryclz-Smigly, Polish dic-
tator, the same sources have per-
mitted it to become known that
Paul Bastid, French minister of
c< mmerce, dropped a broad hint to
the Polish leader that France ex-
perts its commercial credits to Po-
land to benefit all sections of her
population. During his visit to
Warsaw to discuss details of the
French loan, M. Bastid is reported
to have told Polish government of-
ficials thai only a united Poland,
including her Jews, can be of aid
in the present European crisis.
France, he said, is interested in a
strong and united Poland, which
is impossible when one section of
the population suffers from dis-
crimination. It is expected that
this hint will have a decidedly fa-
vorable reaction.

In case any of you ever happen

you that there is no need to be

in a dream, according to the Tal-

that one is "precious before his

of that member of the Succoth

NEW YORK (WNS)The pos-
s hility that the granddaughter of
a Jew may become first lady of
anti-Semitic Germany was envis-
aged when the Associated Press
reported from Berlin that there is
a widespread rumor that Adolf
Hitler may resign as chancellor
and be succeeded by General Her-
mann Wilhelm Goering, whoso
anti-Semitism has always been
much less violent than that of his
chief. Frau Goering is the for-
mer Emmy Sonnemann, grand-
daughter of a brother of Leopold
Sonnemann, founder of the Frank-
furter Zeitung.
The Associated Press says that
i-igh Nazi circles arc discussing :
plan whereby Hitler would turn
all administrative functions
Goering wh:le the Nazi dictator
. u!d remain Her Fuehrer, serving
;.- "the moral voice of the nation."

KISLER Representative SUBSCRIPTION 11.00 FRIDAY, OCTOHKR 2, 1936 Vol. 9—No. 1(1 ... T* The Answer We cannot but commend the righteous indignation of our fellow citizens at the untrue and uncalled-for approval of Hitler policies by men of the cloth. In the land of liberty and freedom it is rather incongruous for preachers of the Gospel to approve actions of Hitler or in the slightest way, directly or indirectly, praise him. Hitlerism. as has been so well stated by Jews and nonJews throughout the world, is not a Jewish problem ... it is a problem of the world and every liberty-loving individual • every Catholic Protestant I.aborite Mason every human being with but a decent thought in mind has suffered and is today suffering at the hands of this dictator and stifler of human rights. Apologies, retractions may help however, the harm has been done. We feel that speeches, interviews, etc., as (riven to the daily nress by men like Dr. Elisha King or Dr. Vliet last week were ill conceived and ill advised. We feel that on careful consideration they will regret having given these interviews We cannot believe that men of their type really meant to convey to the public what the printed interview toldWe can combat these ill advised statements and similar remarks in only one way every Jew must direct the true facts to the attention of his fellow citizens every non-Jew who is liberal minded, honest and upright will react to the truth Good wil 1 movemen's as sponsored locally by Rabbi Dr. Jacob H. Kai Ian. Rev. Glenn James and similar members of the Catholic and Protestant faiths must be encouraged • not merely %  y word of mouth ... but actively and mi itantly. By spreading the truth about Hitler about all unAmerican movements we can overcome these contemptible parasites. True Americans will ever uphold the truth and condemn untruths. Plain Talk ARE JEWS WORTH SAVING? By A I. SEGAL I am constantly being made aware that I am a Jew. Every once in awh'le I get a pain; then I know I am a Jew. I am not like other people who do not suffer on account of their racial identity. My friend, Mclntosh, d lea not even suffer by reaScotch stories which are always being related to him. In fact, after Mclntosh has been told a Scotch s'ory, he says: "Now let me tell you one." I have had moments of forgetfulness of being a Jew and have rejoiced in th? comfort of being an equal man in the world. This was n the remote, happier times. If, in those times, I ever thought on the matter of being a Jew, it was to say: "Being a Jew is purely a religious identity and formal religion isn't my life." I could feel myself to be in the i.ame happy position as my neighbor, Mr. Barkley, who never troubled himself much about being an Episcopalian. "Religion," said Barkley, "is the least in my life. I have quite forgotten that I was brought up an 1 Episcopalian." Barkley and I seemed to be in the same pleasant amnesia. He is still carrying lightly (if at all) • the identity of being an Episcopalian; but being a Jew has be; come the chief burden of my consciousness. Even yesterday when I picked up a certain newspaper and cast my eyes over the advertisements I was stabbed to the heart, as one might say. There was an advertisement of a hotel which let it be known that it solicited only Gentile patronage. This made my whole afternoon miserable. In fact, whichever way I turn I am being admonished by my pain that I am a Jew. If it isn't something that Hitler has just said, it is a sharp pain that I get from a friend who has just come from around the corner. He tells me of someth'ng ho overheard a certain lawyer say about Jews, or it is a speech he heard. In this speech there was no reference to Jews by name, but my friend has discovered subtle implications. I feel an anti-Semitic Poignard in my back. ()r. in the evening, when l go to the house of a friend for no more than frivolous entertainment, someone suddenly says: "What's going to become of us?" and my heart becomes desolate as by the knell of doom. Thus I, the Jew, live by my pains these days. I never wanted to live so much as a Jew as now, what with all the enemies that encompass me, I am a vigorous, Flaming Jew on account of my pains. Sometimes I think about myself apart from anti-Semites. What will become of me, the Jew, after there are no more enemies to inflict pain on me and to remind me that 1 am Jewish'.' For I like to believe that a time of justice must come and I will be let alone. What will I have to live for then, as a Jew? At present I am a living Jew merely because I despise to die at the hands of these contemptible enemies. This looks like negative, empty living. Is there nothing positive for which to keep on living as a Jew? I am trying to save myself from my enemies, hut for what? To what purpose should I, the Jew, survive? Is there nothing in being a Jew except this pain? Is il worth whi!s surviving merely to lie preserve : : rom one I Litter to the next ? It really doesn't seem worth while to keep on living for that, to have nothing to live by except pain, to have nothing to live for except to wring my hands in despair and to shake my fist against enemies. .Since (at present) 1 am so eager for my life as a lew, ought I not have a very good excuse for living? I look at my anxious friends who are so troubled about the destruction that seems to hang over their heads like a low cloud. In my optimism I believe they are going to be saved (since it can't happen here); but when they are saved, what will have been saved? They will be a lot of dead Jews with nothing in their hearts (not even any more pain) to give them life as Jews. Are they worth saving? What for? • So, it seems to me, the B'nai B'rith is on the right track to make living Jews out of us who are worth saving. What is a living Jew? I should say he is one who doesn't need pain to make him t. el Jewish. He knows to what purpose no is a Jew. He is aware of the body of ideals which is Judaism. He is conscious of being a son of prophets. He thinks of himself as an actor on a great stage of history and, as a veteran trouper, feels duty bound to make a good showing. He knows his story. It has to do with the pageant that runs back to Sinai. As an old sufferer he does not make himself ridiculous by crying out his pain, as if the pain of the Jews was the only pain in the world. He has studied his pain and has found it has to do with the pain of the world and is not apart from it. He has come to the mind that if his pain is to be less, the pain of the world must be made less; that there is no justice for him separate from justice for all men. He (as one to whom has been handed down a body of social ideals) must go bravely with men who march toward a world more |U8< and lovely. He much march in front with the banners. He walks with a high head, sure that he has something to live for. He is not the afflicted, timid -lew whom the blows of enemies keep reminded that he is a Jew. He seems a fellow worth saving. The B'nai B'rith (in all its lodges) has taken up a project of adult education by which to make Jews feel Jewish without the aid nf pain. By a plan which is to extend to the most remote lodges. Institutes of Jewish studies are being established to teach Jews about themselves: That they may know who they are, whence they tame, what they have, to what end they live, by what they may make themselves deserving to live. Long ago B'nai B'rith took up the survival of Jewish youth in colleges through the Hillel Foundation; now it turns also to us, the adult Jews who have the will to live but should also have something to live for. The work of the B'nai B'rith's Institute of Jewish Studies is under the direction of Rabbi Paul Riehman. It seems to me he is :>n a worth while job. (Copyr'ght, 1936, by Seven Arts Feature Syndicate) Jabotinsky Would Give Palestine Mandate to East European Powers WARSAW (WNS) — Vladimir Jahotinsky's ambitious plan for the emigration of 150,000 Polish Jews to Palestine within the next ten years also envisages a scheme for depriving the British government of the Mandate over Palestine and turning the Mandate over to a consortium of Fast European countries, among them Poland, it was reported here. The Revisionist leaders' plan has been enthusia-ly approved by the Polish antiSemites because it fits in with their own demand for the expulsion of the Jews. The problem of Jewish m:i~s emigration will be raise i at the Council of the League of Nations by Foreign Minister Jos. Beck.

PARIS (WNS) Although government circles have taken pains to deny that Premier Leon Blum discussed the plight of Polish Jewry during his conference with General Ryclz-Smigly, Polish dictator, the same sources have permitted it to become known that Paul Bastid, French minister of c< mmerce, dropped a broad hint to the Polish leader that France experts its commercial credits to Poland to benefit all sections of her population. During his visit to Warsaw to discuss details of the French loan, M. Bastid is reported to have told Polish government officials thai only a united Poland, including her Jews, can be of aid in the present European crisis. France, he said, is interested in a strong and united Poland, which is impossible when one section of the population suffers from discrimination. It is expected that this hint will have a decidedly favorable reaction.

wJewisti Florid lain CQMBMNG The JhewiisHi HJiniHty Vol. 9—No. 40 MIAMI, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1936 Price Five Cents THE WORLD'S WINDOW Palestine and the Future By LUDWIG LEWISOHN (This column U copyrighted by the Seven Art* Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or in part atrictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted.) It is fairly safe to assert that the dispatching of an entire division of British troops to Palestine will mean the ultimate suppression ot violence. It means one thing more: it means Britain's intense realisation of the importance of Palestine to the Empire. The vir-' tual independence of Egypt, the recent detachment of Aden from Indian administrative control, various other details of imperial policy emphasize the crucial position of Palestine within the larger schemes of British policy. Haifa can command the Eastern Mediterranean, aircraft India-bound can land in Palestine, the Suez Canal becomes less indispensable. Britain, though muddling along and criminally procrastinating, will not permit Palestine to become so turbulent as to slip from her grasp. So far, so good. Only it is not : very far from our point of view. I So long as we remain the mere lawns of empire we can never be I certain that Britain or a given British administration will not consider us a nuisance rather than a help. There is luckily a large and sound and influential mass of public opinion in England that sees clearly the fact that the value of Pi ostine with n the empire depends, as things have shaped themselves, on us, on our loyalty, v>n that pax Judaica which we are eager and able to establish there. And the superb bearing and policies of our Yishub during these troubled months should have gone far to consolidate that section of public opinion and extend it. It takes no very prophetic vision | to foresee a combination of events! within the next half century which might make the loyalty of a large! and firmly established Jewish com, m unity in Palestine a means of | actually saving the British Empire. But that is, of course, not what we are going to Palestine for; that is not the reason why our people hunger and thirst after Palestine. It is well; it is honorable; it is realistically the best we have and the best we can do. Granting that, however, we had better now take a lcn %  ; view; granting that, we had b e. build (within the British En lire, to be sure) toward the future. It h not certain that we have. do.;, so. It is not certain that we, too. have not muddled through in many respects. It is not certain that we did not "repress" the Arab attacks of 1921 and 1929, deliberately forget them and dismiss them from our minds. It was pardonable enough. Our need is so great and so dire. The spiritual need of world Jewry to be able to think of one place, the homeland, us a place without a burning and intricate problem, is so great and so dire. We wanted this point of repose, and hope, not to be troubled by the swirling maddening disasters of the world. Well, we shall have to take up that burden now and add it to our other burden.-. This, at least, will be worth Liaring. This one, at least, we shall be bearing for some definite purpose. We must establish a modus Vivendi with the Arab population. We have depended too much on the economic benefits that we unquestionably brought to the Arabs. This dependence is part of the miserable heresy that man lives by bread alone. We, too. have been infected by that heresy. We must seek to convince the Arabs that we are honorably planning a bi-national state and that even when we constitute a majority of the population the Arab will be as free and self-determining, as much at home as are the French Swiss of Geneva and Lausanne within the predominantly German Swiss Republic. We must convince them that Nablus will bear the same relation, whatever comes or goes, to Tel Aviv that Geneva bears to Zu rich, that Ghent bears to Brussels, that Quebec bears to Toronto. Although a rigid cantonal system '* impossible there seems to be a tendency within Palestine, brought about by natural geographic factors, to create population zones. It is a question, therefore, whether our brusk refusal to consider the establishment of a legislative councl was not an error 'n diplomacy. It might have been | better, it may be better today to consent to a legislative council j with the following provisions and safeguards: First, that the counI cil shall not contravene the mandate and that, therefore, neither, immigration nor land sale nor allotment shall fall within its powers; second, that the franchise shall depend on a stringent literacy test applied by mixed commissions of Jews and Arabs with the British councillors; third, that bona fide Jewish immigrants be naturalized within one month of their taking up residence; fourth, that representation in the council based on population figures be revised on the basis of an annual census. In brief, it might have been betf ter some months ago, it may be j better some months hence for us to consent to this form of supposedly democratic control, while definitely, by our provisos, safeguarding its democratic functioning for us. Of our willingness to be polit(Continued on Page 4) Tel Aviv Mourns Mayor Dizengoff: Tel Aviv (WNS-Palcor Agency) Permanent tribute will be paid to the memory of Meier Dizengoff, late mayor and founder of Tel Aviv, by the Palestine Friends of the Hebrew University and by the Jewish National Fund, it is announced here. A chair will be founded in the Hebrew University to commemorate Mayor Dizengoff, and the National Fund will establish a new forest to be named after Km. His name was also given 1o the first child born after his death in Tel Aviv. .Mayor Dizengoff left a modest I state, the major part of which has been bequeathed to the Tel Aviv museum, which he founded. His will, dated January 1. 1986, after being opened, was transiCrred to the Tel Aviv rabbinate for validation. Although the contents of the will have not yet been published it is reported that Mayor Dizengoff, who helped to acquire for the Jewish population great sections of the valuable real estate of Tel Aviv, had only a small sum at the .i ... %  o.' ilia dtath. Th-j museum, t which he be .ueathed the major pa, t „f his funds, lepres e n I s the principal cultural achievement of his life, having been opened early this year with aj splendid collection of various rep' %  681 lltations of Jewish art. As Jews throughout Palestine v. nt into mourning for their irst citizen, with flags of all public and many private institutions flying at half mast, the spiritual testament of Mayor Dizengoff was published. In this testamcnt,writ-, ten on July 12th, directions for his funeral were given and thoughts on approaching death revealed. "The thought of death does not sadden me," he wrote. The mayor requested that his funeral cortege be headed by children, whom he loved deeply. Next in line he wanted the youth, among whom he said he had always counted himself. Following them he asked that women march, "the mothers of the younger generation." The general public was to bring up the rear. A greater part of the 150,000 Jews in this all-Jewish city was in the line of march or throngeJ the streets as the funeral procession for Mayor Dizengoff filed by. Observers estimated that more than 80,000 people participated in the funeral itself. .Messages of condolence poured into the home of the late mayor from all parts of the world, and into the offices of the Jewish Agency and the Tel Aviv Municipal Council. In his telegram to Moshe Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency, Sir Arthur Wauchope declared: "His outstanding achievements will long remain as a memorial to his name." Communist Charge Anti-Semite Is Vigorously Denied Guilty of Libel New York (WNS)—The charge that Adolf Hitler, under the guise of attacking communism, is actually making an assault upon democracy and world peace was made by Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee, end Sol M. Stroock, chairman of its executive committee. Taking their text from Hitler's "Mein Kampf" that "Propaganda must not serve the objective truth, especially not insofar as it might bring out something favorable for the opponent but propaganda must serve uninterruptedly its own purpose," the statement of these Jewish leaders branded official declarations made at the recent Nazi party congress at Nuremberg, as a "farrago of mendalities and imitations, tending to "the Nazi destruction of democratic ideals dear to free people everywhere." In their statement, the American Jewish Committee spokesmen placed emphasis upon refutation of those Hitler charges which linked the J( ws t>> communism. After ha\ ng deprived the German Jews of their civil rights, their status as citizens, their peace of mind and their hope for the future, they declared, the Nazis' leadership has poured abuse upon their good name and that of the Jews of the wor! at large, whom they are ceasele ly maligning. IViis time, it is stated, the assault upon the repu' tation of the Jews is made under the cloak of an attack upon communism. German Jewry, before Hitler's chancellorship, the statement points out, had less than 300,000 voters. However, G,000,000 tommunist votes were cast during' the republic. Moreover, Jewish leaders in Germany in the elections in which Hindenberg, Hitler and Thaelmann were candidates, urged German Jewry to vote for Hindenberg, their own economic in1 terests having made them "diametrically opposed to communism." i Not one prominent or even well known Jewish leader, adds the. statement, was ever identified with the communist party in Germany. The 7(1 communist deputies in the reichstag of 1930 included only one Jew and there were no Jews whatever among the 81 communist deputies of the 1933 reichstag. Referring to Russia, the statement declares that only two of the 3(5 commissars who constitute the Soviet government are Jews. "The record is clear Hitler's verbal assaults are myths of his own creation," the statement emphasizes. LONDON (WNS)—Fascist antiSemitic agitation in Great Britain received its first important legal setback when Justice Greaves| Lord in Old Bailey Court sentenced Arnold Leese, editor of the violently anti-Jewish publication, The I-ascist, to six months in prison | after a jury had found him guilty of publishing libelous statements against the Jews. Walter Whitehead, printer of The Fascist, was also convicted, but was let off with a fine of $100. The verdicts against Leese and Whitehead are being hailed throughout England as a major victory against Fascist propaganda, since this case was regarded ai a test of the possibility of stemming anti-Jewish agita. tion through legal action. In sentencing Leese Justice Greaves-Lord said that the writings of the defendant had "prejuj diced the lawful and customary intercourse between Jews and non•' iwa to the endangerment of peaceful illations." "I am satisfied," I the Judge declared, "that nothing can be more mischievous to the public than the circulation of statements of this kind. I can appreciate that behind what you have done there is possibly a belief amounting in its intensity almost to fanaticism regarding the truth or otherwise of these statements. Tha. the public well bring can be te e
