RIGHT TO STRIKE
New York (WNS)Unskilled
labor's right to strike and women's
right to sue for divorce on grounds
of incompatibility were sanctioned
hy the Talmud, Dr. Louis Gins-
berg, senior professor of the
Jewish Theological Society of
America, declared in a paper on
Palestinian and Babylonian Life
and Thought as Reflected in the
Talmud," which was read at the
institute of Post-Biblical Literature,
which closed the seminary's semi-
centennial celebration, fcimphaali-
ing the amazingly liberal code of
civil law which the Babylonian
Jews developed "in accordance with
the demands of the time" from the
third to the fifth centuries of the
Christian era. Dr. Ginsberg empha-
sized that the labor laws of the
Talmud, probably the first labor
code, developed because of the rise
of commerce and industry In Tan-
naitlc times.
These laws, Dr. Ginsberg said,
were a reinterpretation of the
basic constitution of the early He-
brews, the Five Books of Moses,
and were evolved out of necessity,
lor the Bible made no such labor
provisions as it legislated for an
agricultural people who were un
troubled by such a problem as fair
wages. The point of "paramount
importance" in these laws, Dr.
(Jinsberg asserted, is the "right to
-trike. In Babylonia, commerce
and industry were much more de-
veloped and hence a difference was
made between unskilled labor, 'He
who is hired for doing a piece of
work'; the first was granted the
right to strike but not the latter
whose relation to the employer was
considered to be more in the nature

Geneva (WNSPalcor Agency)
Pierre Orts, Belgian, was elected
chairman of the Permanent Man-
dates Commission of the League of
Nations as its ordinary session
opened. In his opening remarks
Mr. Orts pointed out that a spe-
cial session on Palestine has been
scheduled for the end of July. He
expressed regret at the circum-
stances which necessitated a fur-
ther adjournment of that question.
No Palestine questions would be
treated at this session, he stated.

production in whole or In part
itrictly forbidden. Any infringe-
ment will be prosecuted.
The quaintly named commence-
ment season is beginning. From
numerous instittuions of what is
known as the higher learning will
issue forth within the next few
weeks a multitude of young men
and women adorned with scholastic
degrees and filled, at least accord-
ing to the proper belief of parents
and teachers, with knowledge,
energy and hope. And Just at this
moment that able organizer and
educator, Rabbi Lee J. Levinger,
eonM and tells us that in thirteen
hundred colleges spread abroad
over the land there are one hun-
dred and five thousand Jewish stu-
dents, an extraordinary high pro-
portion out of the total Jewish
population of these States which,
though absolutely high, is relatively
bare and paltry four per cent.
So we might comfortably say. at
first glance, the am ha-sefer Is an
am ha-sefer still and the mothers
of this people of the book are prob-J
ably still crooning to their male
infants:
Toireh wet er lernen,
Sforim wet er shraiben.
Well, let us leave aside the sec-
ond line of the lullaby. Writing
books Is in this agein all but
one In a million casesa nuisance,
an impertinence and a superfluity.
We are drowned in printer's ink;
we are being pushed out of our
houses by these far, far too many
bundles of bound sheets, the vast
and overwhelming majority of
them written out of no unanswer-
able inner necessity nor adding
any demonstrably new fragment to
the sum of human knowledge.
Down with writing books, then!
But learning Toirehthat is an-
other matter. Are the one hundred
and five thousand Jewish students
doing that. For let us remember that
in its broadest sense Torah is more
than Cliumesh, though to the Jew
it must always be that too, more
than tradition both oral and writ-
ten, more than Is in the concept

Columbus, Ohio (WNS)After
vigorously condemning the Fascist
forces in Spain and directly ex-
pressing sympathy for the loyalist
forces, the Central Conference of
American Rabbis adjourned its
forty-eighth annual meeting. Rabbi
Max 0. Curricle of Erie, Pa., was
elected to succeed Dr. Felix A. Levy
of Chicago In the presidency and
Rabbi Emil W. Leipzlger of New
Orleans was elected vice president.
Other officers elected were Rabbi
Harry S. Margolls, St. Paul, treas-
urer; Rabbi Isaac E. Marctison,
Macon, Ga., recording secretary,
and Rabbi Samuel M. Gup, Colum-
bus, Ohio, corresponding secretary.
An amendment to the constitution
was proiiosed which would abolish
the post of recording and corre-
sponding secretary and create the
paid position of executive secre-
tary. This will be acted upon at
the next conference. Six new mem-
bers were elected for the executive
board. They were: Dr. Felix A.
Levy, Chicago; Rabbi Bernard J.
Bamberger, Albany; Dr. Solomon
B. Freehof, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Rabbi
James Q. Heller, Cincinnati; Rabbi
Myron W. Meyer, St. Joseph, Mo.,
and Rabbi Isador E. Philo. Youngs-
town, Ohio. Dr. Felix Levy was
elected to serve on the executive
board of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations and Rabbi
Maurice N. Eisendrath of Montreal
was elected to the union's board of
managers of synagogue and school
extension. The Hebrew Union Col-
Ior. Alumni Association at its an-
nual dinner meeting elected the
following officers: Rabbi Joseph
Rauch, Louisville, president; Dr.
Nathan Stern. New York City, vice
president; Rabbi Sidney L. Regner,
Reading, Pa., secretary, and Rabbi
Leon I. Feuer. Toledo, treasurer.
Three men were elected to the
alumni board for a period of three
years: Rabbi William Stern, Oak-
land, Cal.; Rabbi Meyer Simon, La-
fayette, Ind., and Rabbi Frederick
Rypins, Greensboro, N. C. Rabbi
Abraham J. Feldman of Hartford
and Rahbi Abraham Feinstein of
Chattanooga were elected alumni
representatives to the board of
managers of synagogue and school
extension.
Almost complete support was re-
corded for Dr. Levy's vigorous mes-
sage when the report of the com-
mittee on that subject was unani-
mously adopted.
Breaking completely with the
precepts adopted more than 50
years ago, the Central Conference
of American Rabbis adopted a new
platform of principles at Its forty-
eighth annual meeting which af-
firmed the obligation of Jewry to
build Palestine as a homeland and
declared that Judaism teaches that
labor's rights take precedence over
those of property. The new plat-
form, which displaced the Pitts-
burgh platform adopted In 1885 and
which has since then been the basic
code of Reform Judaism in America,
was adopted on motion of Rabbi
David Philllpson of Cincinnati, last
surviving member of the meeting
which adopted the now discarded

Soviet General
Commits Suicide
Moscow (WNS)Jan Gamarnik,
brother-in-law of the late Chaim
Nacham llialik and one of the key
figures In the Soviet regime, com-
mitted suicide here, according to
an iMinouncement by the Central
Executive Committee of the Com-
munist Party. Vice commissar of
defense and a veteran Bolshevik.4
Camarnik was said to be involved
with anti-Soviet elements. Prior to
the recent demotion of Vice-Coin
missar Mikhail N. Tnkhachevskv,
Camarnik was his right-hand man.
Gamarnik, who was 48, Joined the
Communist Party in 1!'16. During
the revolution he was one of the
commanders of the southern army.
He was responsible for consolidat-
ing the Soviet power in Odessa and
Kharkov during the Civil War.
After the Civil War he was named
director of all political work in tin-
Red Army. In 1!35 he was one of
five generals raised to the newly-
created rank of marshal, but was
also given the special title of "Mili-
tary Commissar of the First Rank."
DISCOVERER OF CURE
BARRED FROM PRACTICE
Albany (WNS)Because he ar-
rived in New York just two days
after the State Department of Edu-
cation adopted a ruling barring for-
eign physicians from practicing in
the state, Dr. Manfred Sakel, emi-
nent German Jewish refugee sci-
entist, who recently stirred the
medical world by his discovery of
the insulin shock treatment for the
cure of dementia praecox, has been
forced to return to Vienna, whre
he has been practicing since his
exile from Germany.
Rome (WNS)Disavowing offi-
cial responsibility for the anti-
Semitic utterances in such promi-
nent Fascist newspapers as 11 Po-
polo d'ltalia, 11 Tevere and Regime
Paacilta, the Italian government,
through an official spokesman, de-
clared that these articles reflect
only the personal opinions of the
editors of the papers and do not
have government support in any
way. Apparently prompted by the
recent warning of 11 Popolo d'ltalia,
Mussolini's organ, to Italian Jews
to break with Zionism and halt
their opposition to Nazi racial theo-
ries or forfeit Italian citizenship
and residence, the government
spokesman asserted that the "Jew-
sb problem is non- existent in
Italy" and emphasized that Musso-
lini had changed the laws of Libya
to accord civil rights to the Jews
of that colony.
'The articles which have ap-
peared in the newspapers are the
personal opinions of their editors
and do not have government sup-
port in any way," the spokesman
said. "The Italian government re-
mains absolutely neutral in this
matter. The recent article In
Popolo d'ltalia was not an official
expression of opinion against the
Jews either by the newspaper It-
self or the government. The ar-
ticle in question was a review of
a book already three months old
and expressed the opinion of the
reviewer."
"DONE UP BROWN"
HUMOR AND SATIRE THAT NAZI LEADER8
DON'T CARE TO LAUGH AT
Compiled by EDWIN C. LOEWENTHAL
..^ ...'
Here are a few of the reason* why
suppressed laughter still exists in
Hitler's Germany The bite in
the whispered humor that circulates
everywhere would never get past a
censor. Only a good memory and a
sense of humor, on which there Is
no export tax, preservetd this partial
collection of current German witti-
cisms. When there is a smile in
Nazilandand that is rarely enough
you can be sure that one of the
following barbs is being whispered
about.The Editor.
He Knew the Ropes
Filled with divine pity at the
plight of His chosen people, God
sent the Archangel Gabriel to Ger-
many, to lead the Jews, with all
their belongings, out of the Third
Reich. But Gabriel failed to carry
out his mission; he was caught by
the Gestapo, and thrown Into a con-
centration camp.
God thereupon gave out the as-
signment to Father Abraham; but
the patriarch too fell into the
hands of the police.
Finally God sent Moses to lead
the second exodus. And after a
few days had passed a telegram
from Berlin was received in heaven,
reading: "Everything O.K. Jews
leaving today under my command.
Stormtroop Leader von Moslnsky."
Faux Pas
General von Ludendorff, while
being interviewed by a newspaper
reporter, delivered a long tirade
blaming the Jews for Germany's
defeat In the World War. To which
the reporter replied. In great
amazement: "But Herr General, I
didn't know you were a Jew."
Ahead of Schedule
Informed by an aide that the
Reichstag was on fire, on that fate-
ful night in 133, General Goering
consulted his watch, and exclaimed.
"Already?"
What Prey?
A few days after the blood purge
of June, 1934, Goering, in the course
of a conversation with a foreign
envoy, announced his intention of
going to Poland to do some hunt-
ing and shooting.
"Animals?" asked the diplomat.
A Skeptic
Growing weary while hiking in
the Bavarian mountains. Hitler,
Goering and Goebbels nsked a cart-
driver to give then a lift; he
agreed.

What Will They Say Now?
So much is and has been happening in Jewish life during
recent years that one cannot help but wonder "what next?"
During the past week the Central Conference of American
Rabbis, following a study of more than a year by committees
appointed for that purpose, completely disavowed the famous
Pittsburgh platform upon which American Reform Jewry based
its conduct and adopted a new platform and basis of belief.
Dr. Felix A. Levy, president of the conference and one of the
ablest men within its ranks, in his annual message admitted that
Reform Judaism "has failed to make any deep impression upon
the great bulk of Jewry" and continued "our days of reforma-
tion are over."
Zionism is now deemed an integral part of Reform Jewry
. Palestine as a Jewish homeland is part of the Reform Jew's
creed work for the Jewish homeland together with the Con-
servative and Orthodox wings of Jewry is deemed necessary
... a return to "Halacha" ... a code for the guidance of Re-
form Jewry in religious practice which would at the same time
help the rabbi to win back his congregation to WIDER PRAC-
TICE OF CEREMONIAL in home and synagogue .. observance
of the Sabbath service.
When a Reform rabbi warns his followers that "many fol-
lowers of Reform Judaism have gone further in the destruction
of Jewish features than the movement ever intended" and as-
serting "they keep nothing of ceremonial and are undifferen-
tiated for the most part from their non-Jewish neighbors," then
we know there is a revival within Jewry ... we know "od lo
ovdoh tikvosenu."
We see a rapprochement between Reform Jewry and Con-
servative Jewry as is being urged by leaders of Reform Jewry
such as Dr. Julian Morgenstern, head Of the Hebrew Union Col-
lege. We see the obliteration of artificial boundaries between
different shades of Jewry. We see the so-called lines of social
demarcation which separated Jewry wiped out completely. .
We see as did the prophets of old ... a return to
Jewry and Judaism.
Encouraging Signs
During the election campaign ended last Tuesday at
Miami Beach for the election of City Councilmen for that city
we regretted to see the cry of Jew raised. That it would result
in damage to the Jewish name was something to be feared.
There was no reason for this issue to be injected in what was
simply a matter of politics and not religion.
It is indeed encouraging that the community of Miami
Beach, Jew and non-Jew alike, rose to the occasion and returned
to office a splendid citizen who at the same time shirked none
of his duties as a Jew. Baron de Hirsch Meyer made a splendid
record as City Councilman of Miami Beach and yet found time
to be of service to his people in every worthwhile movement.
Baron de Hirsch Meyer did not, as have others, try to avoid
work for Palestine, and as a result won the commendation ex-
pressed in no uncertain terms last Tuesday of his fellow citizens
of Miami Beach.
We are indeed happy that Baron de Hirsch Meyer will once
again be enabled to do his share of the work in advancing the
interests of the entire community of Miami Beach together with
such splendid non-Jews as John Levi, Bob Ralston, Harry Hice,
William Burbridge, Val Cleary and Arthur Childers.

PLAINTALK
(Continued from last week)
But would I take Orthodoxy if
you gave it to me? Orthodoxy. I
say to myself, is like the old home-
stead of my youth. I like to look
at it sentimentally, hut would I
live In it again? I have become
accustomed to steam heat and in-
light and all the easy comforts of
stantaneous hot water and electric
modern dwellings. 1 do not
to go back to the rigorous discip-
lines of the old homestead ,and
no more will I return to the dis-
ciplines of Orthodoxy, which have
kept my father's feet faithful in tho
synagogue morning and evening.
I confess I prefer Rerorm. It
requires nothing of me except tl e
temple dues ($65). It is so easy
to take or let alone that I let it
alone. Perhaps what's the matter
with it is that it contains no com-
pulsion of tradition to say to mo:
"You must! This is an inheritance
and you must carry it."
Por Reform Judaism was not
handed down to me by much tra-
vail, but was made to order, as one
might say. Between Orthodoxy
and Reform there may be the vital
difference that exists between an
ancestral bedstead and one that
was made in Grand Rapids yester-
day.
Oh, reverend doctors, 1 am not
saying positively "This is the mat-
ter" or "That is the matter." I
am merely thinking out loud; I am
no impudent patient to tell the
doctors their business. Perhaps it
is myself that is the matter.
This is to say, I, the Reform Jew,
may be like the million of others
In a changing world in which the
rational mind looks critically at
formal religion "Do I need this?
Do I need to sit in a temple in order
to present myself before God?"
Thus my mind revolves the matter
and comes even to the question:
"Just what is God?" Once I was
sure of the answer.
Yet I am a strange mixture. How
moved I was one early morning the
other week when listening to the
coronation. These words of conse-
cration (given by the Archbishop
of Canterbury) were all words from
our Book; it might have been our
own King David being anointed and
crowned and being given the sword
with which to defend righteousness.
I felt that my case could not be
altogether hopeless, since I still
thrill to the grandeurs of the Bib-
lical inheritance though I am a
wanderer from the temple.
Nor is my case as hopeless as
that of the men of other faiths on
whom the bonds of religion have
worn thin. In moments of indif-
ference or amnesia I am suddenly
reminded by a knock at my door.
"Sir," says my visitor, "you're a
Jew and we're having a big drive
to make the cemetery of the Beth
Olam Burial Society bigger and
better. Won't you give something?"
Or 1 feel the throb of Jewish
poetry as I consider what a beau-
tiful end it would be for me to go
to Palestine and mingle my blood
(shed by an Arab) with the holy
land of my fathers.
Or (once a year) I stand in the
synagogue reciting Yisgadal, Veyi-
skadash and feel more sanctified
than on any Yom Kippur; for I
stand on holy ground of my own
heart. I must go to the Orthodox
synagogue for this because the Re-
form temple is closed on the holiest
of my days.
Then, of course, there is always
Hitler or some other anti-Semite
to make me feel Jewish.
In other words, reverend doctors,
there is such a variety of ways of
being Jewish, so many sides to
me, the Jew, that if I die on one
side there still may be some life
on the other. Thanks for listen-
ing to me. a poor patient who la
as worried as you are about his
condition and at times lets his
mind wander absently in search of
a bit of hope.

Now tliat the preserving season
Is approaching, these "C" foods are
in the limelight. Some women are
planning to stock their emergency
shelves with glass Jars of cherries,
chicken and crab apples. Others,
who do not put up their own
goodies each season, are purchasing
supplies for next winter feeling
that prices are very likely to con-
tinue climbing.
When stocking your preserve
closet, remember to purchase foods
packed in containers of glass or
to use new glass containers if
stocking with home-made delicacies.
These Jars are transparent and
through their sparkling sides you
can see the quality of the foods.
Food packers are constantly im-
proving the shape and appearance
of these glass containers, so that
now, shelves of cheese, cherries
and crab apples are exceedingly
attractive.
If you would like to try some
home-made goodies this season,
here are a couple of easy-to-follow
recipes:

Now It Can Be Told
;-ressed some doubts on whether
Hitler had really earned the Iron
Cross in the World War, a reporter
was sent to interview the Fuehrer
on the subject. Hitler told him
ho had been awarded the med
having taken 22 British prisoners,
"All by yourself?" the reporter
asked.
"Of course," the Fuehrer averred.
"But how did you manage it
"By surrounding them," was the
Fuehrer's explanation.
Scarcity of Raw Material
Julius Stretcher was organizing
another anti-Jewish boycott drive.
The mails were flooded with in-
spirational literature exhorting all
good Germans to obstain from all
dealings with Jews.
From the mayor of a small town
he received the following tele-
graphed plea; "Send us a 1
of Jews at once. There is no one
here to boycott."
Talking Out of Turn
"Herr Fuehrer, you forgot your
program." an usher at the Berlin
ra called after Hitler as I
latter was entering his box tOl
evening's performance.
The usher was immediately
losted and thrown into a con
tration camp for daring to crituize
the Fuehrer's policies.
Who's Crazy Now?
In preparation for a visit the
Fuehrer was to pay to their insti-
tution, the heads of a Berlin in-
sane asylum s;ent weeks in drill-
ing the inmates in the proper man-
ner of giving the Nazi salute and
shouting 'Hell Hitler."
When Hitler finally came, and
all the inmates were gathered in
the assembly hall to greet him.
everybody saluted him perfectly ex-
cept the Janitor; that individual
simply continued polishing the
window he waa cleaning.
"How dare you Insult your
Fuehrer by not saluting me?" Hit-
ler shouted at him.
"But I don't hare toI'm not
oraay,'' was the janitor's retort.
The Only Way Out
Two Jews were discussing their
**d fate in the Third Reich.
"What can we do?" one cried
hopelessly.
"There's Just one thing we can
do," the other replied. "Shoot our-
selves while trying to escape "

program.
The new platform, which was
formulated during the last two
years by a commission under the
chairmanship of Professor Samuel
S. Cohon of the Hebrew Union Col-
lege, affirms a Jewish will to estab-
lish a lust society, speaks of a Jew-
ish abhorrence of violence and deals
with other subjects, including God,
Torab, Ethics, etc.
Among the recommendations of
the committee backing Dr. Levy's
message was the following: "Your
committee recommends that this
conference as a group of religious
teachers vigorously protest against
the limitation of Jewish immigra-
tion into Palestine. We hold that
especally at this time when Jews
are persecuted in so many lands
there should be a more liberal pol-
icy towards our people on the part
of Great Britain, the mandatory
power. We recommend further
that this conference lodge an
equally vigorous protest against
any curb on the full development
of Jewish life in Palestine." The
committee also noted as commend-
able the trend toward intensifying
those aspects of Jewish life which
are represented in cermonial and
ritual practice. They commenced

T J.D.C. Cables^50,000 to Pogromized/
i jt Polish Cities and Supervises Aid / {
WITH 1200 Jewish shops and homes reported wrecked and looted In the pogrom that raged In the Pol-
ish city of Braesc-lltewskl, and thousands of impoverished Jews facing actual starvation, the Amer-
ican Jewish Joint Distribution Committee at once went into action, cabling J50.000 for immediate reller
in Poland and sending its two European administrators to the scene.
Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European Vice-Chairman of the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, and David J. Schweitzer, J.D.C. European
Financial Administrator, conferred at once with leaders of Polish
Jewry In Warsaw and went to the pogromized city of Brzesc-
litewskl, where they were shocked by the extent and savagery of
the vandalism and destruction.
The first aim of the J.D.C. would be to avert starvation of the
pogrom victims, said Dr. Kahn and immediately thereafter came
the task of reestablishing in some kind of business the owners
whose shops had been wrecked and the artisans whose tools had
been smashed or stolen. Before leaving Brzesc-litewskl, Dr. Kahn
helped to re-open 150 foodshops.
During the past year the Joint Distribution Committee has
extended emergency and reconstructive aid in more than 9 po-
gromized towns of Poland, among them being Minsk-Mazowlecki
where 303 families were established in new occupations; Przytyk
where 76 families were so established; Zagorow, Truskolasy,
Odrzywol, Klwow, Drzewlca, Pyzdry, and Przybyszew.
Shown in the illustrations are (1) an Innocent pogrom victim;
(2) Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European Director of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee; (3) David J. Schweitzer, Financial Administrator
of J.D.C; (4) A mill, owned by Jews, wrecked by vandals; (5) the
Interior of a Jewish home after a pogrom; (6) pogrom victims
emerging from hiding places to greet J.D.C. officials.

connection that a group -f such
courses will be inaugurated at
Columbia College this fall. These

Now what I should like to know,
what I should like Rabbi I.evinger.
to tell us how many of the l"o.-
000 Jewish students are learning
Toireh in that deep and ultimate
and universal sense and how many
of the children of the am hasefer
are swimming with the shallow
and turbid stream? I am afraid,
from both observation and inquiry.
I that his answer would be disheart-
ening. I am afraid that the ma-
jority of Jewish students in,

psychologically. By being our-
selves, by following our way, we
would be co-operating with the
highest and noblest forces in
American life. By low-plane assi-
milation we are, as always and
everywhere, playing into the hands
of the mob, the vulgar, the poten-
tial enemies of all we are and do.
By being anything but what we
I were eternally meant to be we be-
tray our true friends, the friends

I do. I know. There Is very little
about the matter first and last that

tion is beside the mark. For those
who know the way, those who have
gained reality of inner being will
be better able in the long run to
grapple with the bitter world of
material circumstance than the
fools and the frivolous. And in
days of failure and need and
despair they will at least have
something to fall back uponan
inner sense of understanding and
human dignity, a reality which the
world of mere matter and skill and
business can neither give nor take
away. Nor will theyand this is
the supreme pointovervalue that
world and its success. They will
not be wholly the fools of time and
machinery and circumstance.
What of our 105,000 Jewish stu-

tions? What are they doing at the
colleges and universities? Let any
of them who happen to see these

JEM EUROPE AMERICAN JEWS = "I begin to think that maybe— maybe the Jews of Eastern Europe should run a campaign for you here in America." Astonished. I asked -What do you mean? You say the Jews of Eastern Europe are starving—you ask for funds—yet you qualify this statement by suggesting a campaign by European Jewry for us— You are joking—What is the point?" "My dear sir—said the rabbi and he no longer looked abstractly into space—but directed his gaze on me while his eyes became moist with turbulent inward emotion. "The point is—that those In Eastern Europe for whom I appeal are starving—yes—and their clothes are in rags—yes—and their homes are in dirty cellars and shacks—yes—but their poverty is but one of the flesh—all of these can be replaced with money. "But you American and Canadian Jews .you are the ones who I see today in rags—your fine clothes to me are but a mockery for the bodies that show through them are ugly and diseased. "The food you eat Is like ashes and sawdust in your mouths, for you eat of that which is unsanctified and unbecoming to the Jew. "The homes you live in are hovels—for all the fancy furniture and electric refrigerators and radios and bathtubs. "In these boxes and shelves which you so proudly parade, there Is not one gleam, one spark of Judaism. No Sabbath candles warm 1 the household and spread a glow of purity and sanctity. "No holydays bring to house! holds the joy and the hope and the, penitence of a Jewish spiritual life I t or any inkling of the concept of| Judaism. "Your synagogues are not worthy of the name—in them is no religion —no escape from the chaos, and greed and malice of the world without. In them are no rabbis whose names are revered and whose counsel is sought. "No great students—no teachers —no congregations—Only weary I old men mumbling and a fe pimply-faced youths with indiffer ence imprinted on their faces. "Yes—you point to your elabo1 rate germanized synagogues with their radio preachers. •Ah.' what a group of advenrers they are spawning in those vored pools—cut-away coats— j striped trousers—motions in front of a mirror until the proper gst.:rt is caught—Then they let then f > like pigeons over the land. "Words—Words —Words — like water from a fountain—words of Now tliat the preserving season Is approaching, these "C" foods are in the limelight. Some women are planning to stock their emergency shelves with glass Jars of cherries, chicken and crab apples. Others, who do not put up their own goodies each season, are purchasing supplies for next winter — feeling that prices are very likely to continue climbing. When stocking your preserve closet, remember to purchase foods packed in containers of glass — or to use new glass containers if stocking with home-made delicacies. These Jars are transparent — and through their sparkling sides you can see the quality of the foods. Food packers are constantly improving the shape and appearance of these glass containers, so that now, shelves of cheese, cherries and crab apples are exceedingly attractive. If you would like to try some home-made goodies this season, here are a couple of easy-to-follow recipes: Carrots Grade for size, color and degree of ripeness. Wash thoroughly.

"But how did you manage it "By surrounding them," was the Fuehrer's explanation. Scarcity of Raw Material Julius Stretcher was organizing another anti-Jewish boycott drive. The mails were flooded with inspirational literature exhorting all good Germans to obstain from all dealings with Jews. From the mayor of a small town he received the following telegraphed plea; "Send us a 1 of Jews at once. There is no one here to boycott." Talking Out of Turn "Herr Fuehrer, you forgot your program." an usher at the Berlin ra called after Hitler as I latter was entering his box tOl evening's performance. The usher was immediately losted and thrown into a con tration camp for daring to crituize the Fuehrer's policies. Who's Crazy Now? In preparation for a visit the Fuehrer was to pay to their institution, the heads of a Berlin insane asylum s;ent weeks in drilling the inmates in the proper manner of giving the Nazi salute and shouting 'Hell Hitler." When Hitler finally came, and all the inmates were gathered in the assembly hall to greet him. everybody saluted him perfectly except the Janitor; that individual simply continued polishing the window he waa cleaning. "How dare you Insult your Fuehrer by not saluting me?" Hitler shouted at him. "But I don't hare to—I'm not oraay,'' was the janitor's retort.

By low-plane assimilation we are, as always and everywhere, playing into the hands of the mob, the vulgar, the potential enemies of all we are and do. By being anything but what we I were eternally meant to be we betray our true friends, the friends of the human spirit, and make common cause with their foes and our own. "And how about parnosseh? Haven't we got to earn our living? do you knowhard the struggle is? I do. I know. There Is very little about the matter first and last that I don't know. And yet the question is beside the mark. For those who know the way, those who have gained reality of inner being will be better able in the long run to grapple with the bitter world of material circumstance than the fools and the frivolous. And in days of failure and need and despair they will at least have something to fall back upon—an inner sense of understanding and human dignity, a reality which the world of mere matter and skill and business can neither give nor take away. Nor will they—and this is the supreme point—overvalue that world and its success. They will not be wholly the fools of time and machinery and circumstance. What of our 105,000 Jewish students and this question of questions? What are they doing at the colleges and universities? Let any of them who happen to see these lines stop and ask themselves.

if*Jewish Florid fan COMBING Y/he jGWHSh HJUltity Vol. 10—No. 23 MIAMI. FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JUNK 4, 1937 Price Five Cents T RIGHT TO STRIKE New York (WNS)—Unskilled labor's right to strike and women's right to sue for divorce on grounds of incompatibility were sanctioned hy the Talmud, Dr. Louis Ginsberg, senior professor of the Jewish Theological Society of America, declared in a paper on Palestinian and Babylonian Life and Thought as Reflected in the Talmud," which was read at the institute of Post-Biblical Literature, which closed the seminary's semicentennial celebration, fcimphaaliing the amazingly liberal code of civil law which the Babylonian Jews developed "in accordance with the demands of the time" from the third to the fifth centuries of the Christian era. Dr. Ginsberg emphasized that the labor laws of the Talmud, probably the first labor code, developed because of the rise of commerce and industry In Tannaitlc times. These laws, Dr. Ginsberg said, were a reinterpretation of the basic constitution of the early Hebrews, the Five Books of Moses, and were evolved out of necessity, lor the Bible made no such labor provisions as it legislated for an agricultural people who were un troubled by such a problem as fair wages. The point of "paramount importance" in these laws, Dr. (Jinsberg asserted, is the "right to -trike. In Babylonia, commerce and industry were much more developed and hence a difference was made between unskilled labor, 'He who is hired for doing a piece of work'; the first was granted the right to strike but not the latter whose relation to the employer was considered to be more in the nature Y. M. H. A. Elects New Officers! At the annual meeting for election of officers, the Young Mens Hebrew Association last Wednesj day night elected K. Albert Pallet president; Milton A. Friedman, vice I president; Harry Schwartz, treas, urer; Manny Teitler, secretary. Directors for a three-year term: Al. Itosenfeld, Arthur Blatt, Al. ; Liechtenstein and Adolph Haimcs. ; For a two-year term: Jack Apte i and Louis Safanowitz. For a oneyear term: Herman Barnett and A. Kaplan. The officers elected will be formally inducted into office at a meeting of the organization next Wednesday evening, June 9, beginning at 8:15 o'clock. Following the formal ceremonies, a program of entertainment will be presented and refreshments will be served. ORTS NEW CHAIRMAN MANDATES COMMISSION Geneva (WNS—Palcor Agency) Pierre Orts, Belgian, was elected chairman of the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations as its ordinary session opened. In his opening remarks Mr. Orts pointed out that a special session on Palestine has been scheduled for the end of July. He expressed regret at the circumstances which necessitated a further adjournment of that question. No Palestine questions would be treated at this session, he stated. of one merchant to another." The right Of women to divorce on grounds of incompatibility was described in the Talmud in the phrase when "my husband Is repulsive to me," Dr. Ginsberg said. THE WORLD'S WINDOW COMMENCEMENT By LUDWIG LEWISOHN -i This column i> copyrighted by the Seven Arte Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or In part itrictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted. The quaintly named commencement season is beginning. From numerous instittuions of what is known as the higher learning will issue forth within the next few weeks a multitude of young men and women adorned with scholastic degrees and filled, at least according to the proper belief of parents and teachers, with knowledge, energy and hope. And Just at this moment that able organizer and educator, Rabbi Lee J. Levinger, eonM and tells us that in thirteen hundred colleges spread abroad over the land there are one hundred and five thousand Jewish students, an extraordinary high proportion out of the total Jewish population of these States which, though absolutely high, is relatively %  bare and paltry four per cent. So we might comfortably say. at first glance, the am ha-sefer Is an am ha-sefer still and the mothers of this people of the book are prob-J ably still crooning to their male infants: Toireh wet er lernen, Sforim wet er shraiben. Well, let us leave aside the second line of the lullaby. Writing books Is in this age—in all but one In a million cases—a nuisance, an impertinence and a superfluity. We are drowned in printer's ink; we are being pushed out of our houses by these far, far too many bundles of bound sheets, the vast and overwhelming majority of them written out of no unanswerable inner necessity nor adding any demonstrably new fragment to the sum of human knowledge. Down with writing books, then! But learning Toireh—that is another matter. Are the one hundred and five thousand Jewish students doing that. For let us remember that in its broadest sense Torah is more than Cliumesh, though to the Jew it must always be that too, more than tradition both oral and written, more than Is in the concept (Continued on Page 8) Columbus, Ohio (WNS)—After vigorously condemning the Fascist forces in Spain and directly expressing sympathy for the loyalist forces, the Central Conference of American Rabbis adjourned its forty-eighth annual meeting. Rabbi Max 0. Curricle of Erie, Pa., was elected to succeed Dr. Felix A. Levy of Chicago In the presidency and Rabbi Emil W. Leipzlger of New Orleans was elected vice president. Other officers elected were Rabbi Harry S. Margolls, St. Paul, treasurer; Rabbi Isaac E. Marctison, Macon, Ga., recording secretary, and Rabbi Samuel M. Gup, Columbus, Ohio, corresponding secretary. An amendment to the constitution was proiiosed which would abolish the post of recording and corresponding secretary and create the paid position of executive secretary. This will be acted upon at the next conference. Six new members were elected for the executive board. They were: Dr. Felix A. Levy, Chicago; Rabbi Bernard J. Bamberger, Albany; Dr. Solomon B. Freehof, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Rabbi James Q. Heller, Cincinnati; Rabbi Myron W. Meyer, St. Joseph, Mo., and Rabbi Isador E. Philo. Youngstown, Ohio. Dr. Felix Levy was elected to serve on the executive board of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath of Montreal was elected to the union's board of managers of synagogue and school extension. The Hebrew Union ColIOR. Alumni Association at its annual dinner meeting elected the following officers: Rabbi Joseph Rauch, Louisville, president; Dr. Nathan Stern. New York City, vice president; Rabbi Sidney L. Regner, Reading, Pa., secretary, and Rabbi Leon I. Feuer. Toledo, treasurer. Three men were elected to the alumni board for a period of three years: Rabbi William Stern, Oakland, Cal.; Rabbi Meyer Simon, Lafayette, Ind., and Rabbi Frederick Rypins, Greensboro, N. C. Rabbi Abraham J. Feldman of Hartford and Rahbi Abraham Feinstein of Chattanooga were elected alumni representatives to the board of managers of synagogue and school extension. Almost complete support was recorded for Dr. Levy's vigorous message when the report of the committee on that subject was unanimously adopted. Breaking completely with the precepts adopted more than 50 years ago, the Central Conference of American Rabbis adopted a new platform of principles at Its fortyeighth annual meeting which affirmed the obligation of Jewry to build Palestine as a homeland and declared that Judaism teaches that labor's rights take precedence over those of property. The new platform, which displaced the Pittsburgh platform adopted In 1885 and which has since then been the basic code of Reform Judaism in America, was adopted on motion of Rabbi David Philllpson of Cincinnati, last surviving member of the meeting which adopted the now discarded (Continued on Page 6) Soviet General Commits Suicide Moscow (WNS)—Jan Gamarnik, brother-in-law of the late Chaim Nacham llialik and one of the key figures In the Soviet regime, committed suicide here, according to an iMinouncement by the Central Executive Committee of the Communist Party. Vice commissar of defense and a veteran Bolshevik.4 Camarnik was said to be involved with anti-Soviet elements. Prior to the recent demotion of Vice-Coin missar Mikhail N. Tnkhachevskv, Camarnik was his right-hand man. Gamarnik, who was 48, Joined the Communist Party in 1!'16. During the revolution he was one of the commanders of the southern army. He was responsible for consolidating the Soviet power in Odessa and Kharkov during the Civil War. After the Civil War he was named director of all political work in tinRed Army. In 1!35 he was one of five generals raised to the newlycreated rank of marshal, but was also given the special title of "Military Commissar of the First Rank." DISCOVERER OF CURE BARRED FROM PRACTICE Albany (WNS)—Because he arrived in New York just two days after the State Department of Education adopted a ruling barring foreign physicians from practicing in the state, Dr. Manfred Sakel, eminent German Jewish refugee scientist, who recently stirred the medical world by his discovery of the insulin shock treatment for the cure of dementia praecox, has been forced to return to Vienna, whre he has been practicing since his exile from Germany. Rome (WNS)—Disavowing official responsibility for the antiSemitic utterances in such prominent Fascist newspapers as 11 Popolo d'ltalia, 11 Tevere and Regime Paacilta, the Italian government, through an official spokesman, declared that these articles reflect only the personal opinions of the editors of the papers and do not have government support in any way. Apparently prompted by the recent warning of 11 Popolo d'ltalia, Mussolini's organ, to Italian Jews to break with Zionism and halt their opposition to Nazi racial theories or forfeit Italian citizenship and residence, the government spokesman asserted that the "Jewsb problem is nonexistent in Italy" and emphasized that Mussolini had changed the laws of Libya to accord civil rights to the Jews of that colony. 'The articles which have appeared in the newspapers are the personal opinions of their editors and do not have government support in any way," the spokesman said. "The Italian government remains absolutely neutral in this matter. The recent article In Popolo d'ltalia was not an official expression of opinion against the Jews either by the newspaper Itself or the government. The article in question was a review of a book already three months old and expressed the opinion of the reviewer." "DONE UP BROWN" HUMOR AND SATIRE THAT NAZI LEADER8 DON'T CARE TO LAUGH AT Compiled by EDWIN C. LOEWENTHAL ..^ .—•. %  .' Here are a few of the reason* why suppressed laughter still exists in Hitler's Germany The bite in the whispered humor that circulates everywhere would never get past a censor. Only a good memory and a sense of humor, on which there Is no export tax, preservetd this partial collection of current German witticisms. When there is a smile in Naziland—and that is rarely enough —you can be sure that one of the following barbs is being whispered about.—The Editor. He Knew the Ropes Filled with divine pity at the plight of His chosen people, God sent the Archangel Gabriel to Germany, to lead the Jews, with all their belongings, out of the Third Reich. But Gabriel failed to carry out his mission; he was caught by the Gestapo, and thrown Into a concentration camp. God thereupon gave out the assignment to Father Abraham; but the patriarch too fell into the hands of the police. Finally God sent Moses to lead the second exodus. And after a few days had passed a telegram from Berlin was received in heaven, reading: "Everything O.K. Jews leaving today under my command. Stormtroop Leader von Moslnsky." Faux Pas General von Ludendorff, while being interviewed by a newspaper reporter, delivered a long tirade blaming the Jews for Germany's defeat In the World War. To which the reporter replied. In great amazement: "But Herr General, I didn't know you were a Jew." Ahead of Schedule Informed by an aide that the Reichstag was on fire, on that fateful night in 133, General Goering consulted his watch, and exclaimed. "Already?" What Prey? A few days after the blood purge of June, 1934, Goering, in the course of a conversation with a foreign envoy, announced his intention of going to Poland to do some hunting and shooting. "Animals?" asked the diplomat. A Skeptic Growing weary while hiking in the Bavarian mountains. Hitler, Goering and Goebbels nsked a cartdriver to give then a lift; he agreed. (Continued on Page 4)

We hold that especally at this time when Jews are persecuted in so many lands there should be a more liberal policy towards our people on the part of Great Britain, the mandatory power. We recommend further that this conference lodge an equally vigorous protest against any curb on the full development of Jewish life in Palestine." The committee also noted as commendable the trend toward intensifying those aspects of Jewish life which are represented in cermonial and ritual practice.

Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European Vice-Chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee, and David J. Schweitzer, J.D.C. European Financial Administrator, conferred at once with leaders of Polish Jewry In Warsaw and went to the pogromized city of Brzesclitewskl, where they were shocked by the extent and savagery of the vandalism and destruction. The first aim of the J.D.C. would be to avert starvation of the pogrom victims, said Dr. Kahn and immediately thereafter came the task of reestablishing in some kind of business the owners whose shops had been wrecked and the artisans whose tools had been smashed or stolen. Before leaving Brzesc-litewskl, Dr. Kahn helped to re-open 150 foodshops. During the past year the Joint Distribution Committee has extended emergency and reconstructive aid in more than 9 pogromized towns of Poland, among them being Minsk-Mazowlecki where 303 families were established in new occupations; Przytyk where 76 families were so established; Zagorow, Truskolasy, Odrzywol, Klwow, Drzewlca, Pyzdry, and Przybyszew. Shown in the illustrations are (1) an Innocent pogrom victim; (2) Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European Director of the Joint Distribution Committee; (3) David J. Schweitzer, Financial Administrator of J.D.C; (4) A mill, owned by Jews, wrecked by vandals; (5) the Interior of a Jewish home after a pogrom; (6) pogrom victims emerging from hiding places to greet J.D.C. officials. ,.# AT SUNRISE!
