Directorate Elected at Federation Meeting T. D. C. LEADER HAILS ROOSEVELT. PEACE EFFORTS Rochester, (WNS) — Nothing that has been done in the past by the Jews of America toward the helping of the stricken Jews of Europe can hope to meet the present needs overseas.

C, held here"Past standards and assistance have been discarded by American Jews in order to meet the critical situation," he declared.

SUBSCRIPTION One %  ear £.00 >nths ^^^^^^^^ $1.00 FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1939 VOLUME 12—NUMBER 16 USING THE REFUGEES Recent developments both in German/ and in France wihch vitally concern the refugee situation serve to accentuate to the %  ver an apprehensive tenseness in international affairs. W ire told that "it is not necessary to take an alarmist vie* Of the present situation in Europe in order to reach the conclusion that while war is still unlikely the risk of war is very real"; and recent decrees issued by the French government subjecting aliens—including refugees and 'stateless' persons— to military obligations, and the reported reversal of policy by German officials regarding the orderly turn in world events is indeed imminent. While there exists on the part of the refugees themselves the desire to aid their "second Fatherland" and I sacrifice their lives in defense of the land which granted refuge one cannot but feel that France's recent move for con^ icription of all her aliens to military service has deep-rooted significance. From Germany, on the other hand, whose cry until now was the dire necessity for ridding herself of her Jew ish minority, there suddenly eminates the possibility of a turnabout whereby she may refuse to carry out the orderly exodus recently agreed upon by herself and The Intergovernmental Commission. Under this change of policy Jews may not be permitted to leave the country but will be put to work digging trench* and doine sanitation work. This reversal places in discard the agreement reached between the Reich and George kublee regarding the five-year plan for orderly exodus of Jew Although it is unlikely that the Refugee ***-.£ in London within a fortnight will demand that the Naz rnment hold to the agreement, there is nc.more re son believe that it will succeed in prevailing upon Germany to ho • that agreement any more than all offiers which she has dis yarded in recent years. Boycotting Fascism (BY REV. MILES BLANCHARD' \ few years back the world was ked at the ruthless entrance Italy in Ethiopia, the wholesale .ghter of the natives and the tless conquest of a people tj of nothing except the de to be let alone Following the successful 'ape 1 ibis small nation Japan uned soldiers on Chinese so. and proceeded to murder and ( slaughter another people whose verj philosophy of life has been based upon peace and non-reels The world looked on aghast at this inhumane attack upon a people already made defen-seless by internal arguments and dissentions. After this sucful violation of all wlea "' civilization Germany at once took st. ps to forment trouble in Austria and eventually took over the nation and followed it with the mosl atrocious "steal" perpetrated in modern times when it wiped out the peaceful and industrious ( .„ unt y of Czechoslovakia. No* Italy has gone to work once more and the Albanian people have lost their nation, their King and then independence. One is inclined to awaken < the morning and rub his eyes and ,sk if he has not been thrown Si into the middle ages when tht rights of men were ignored a „ d when cruelty and barbarism ub,l the world He asks himse \t it is possible that in a WOrW V pridS itself upon being r :. tee d su.b acts can happen as ES happened within the as J years. Certainly the whole thing — be a nightmare *-£ :; i,a... daughter of mnocent pTnle. and especially women and Ch !i d ? n lives are menaced T0day '" I by a shrewd [taly is controlled bj What are the fruits of Fas i ism? What can any people expect when this form of dictator! ship (dines into power? The answer can be found in Germany. It has been said of Russia that it is atheistic, hut in Germany Adolf Hitler has not stopped at propaganda BgainBt the church, he has opened the doors, walked down the aisle and desecrated the altar. He has written his own version of the Bil le. He has declared that the German race are God's chosen people. Ailing on the principle that he I is God directed he has no limitaj tio.is. Gone are all fraternal or ganizatlons such as Masons and Odd Fellows. Disappeared are all labor organizations, since any organizatiom where men meet together can be the focal point for the revolution that must of necessity come some day in Germany German boys and girls are forced into youth groups, made to carry arms, dressed in miniature unifoms, and taught that Hitler is next to God and that destiny has marked the German nation as the one to dominate the world. But worse than all this is the hatred that is implanted in the hearts of small children, a hatred they can never possibly overcome throughout the remainder of their lives. The Jew has always been persecuted, but today the persecution is different It is done, first of all, in an age when the world is supposed to have reached some new high in the dim btowards civilization. It is done deliberately not as a result of ignorant passion. It is done by a nation that owes much of its success to Jewish genius. No well read person needs a recounting of the atrocities that have been directed to Jewish people *"loly because ,„,v are Jewish. Their money has been taken away from then, their homehave been expropriated. their businesses destroyed. They have b,cn refused any participation in the cultural advantages of Germany. They are faced with a Ghettolike existence. Then lot is so miserable that it beggars de scription. We hear that Germany has wiped out unemployment. Howhas it been done? First, by putting thousands into concentration ,,.„„„.. Second, by taking women out of industry and forcing them back to serfdom. Third, by creating a huge war machine aivd army. Fourth, by manufacture of ammunitions at huge profits to the manufacturers who are backing Hitler But—mark this—despite the fact that 12 million men have either been put in jail or to work mak ing destruction the total Pay 0 f a il working in Germany is hut sligb.lv greater than' that received by the workers prior to the advent of the 12 million In other words, wages have been cut to a below subsistence figure. As a matter of fact Germans today are on starvation diets, with huttei and e *gs at prohibitive prices and other articles of (bets in UM -aine price lisl It might be well enough to say that German's starvation and self destruction is her ownbusiness, if Germany was minding her own business, and yet such is not the case. Germany has never learned the lesson of minding its own business. It has laid plans for world domination by introducing its brand of Fascism throughout the rest of the world. We were startled a few days ago to discov; er that an intercepted message to Berlin, originating in Argentina,, decoded, stated that everything was ready for the taking over of Patagonia, the great plateau at the tip end of South Americ. Germany had even turned her eyes to i our hemisphere, double cross'ng a nation that up to that time had been very friendly towards it J In our own country there is ampie evidence that German money has been active in promoting an ti-Semitism, the opening wedge for Fascism. Our own city has 1 not escaped the threats of having j an organization within it that collects money for literature through the United States mail, the same organization being based upon the hatred of the Jew. SOCIETY In other words, the peace of 'he world is threatened by the men ace of the most barbaric philosophy that we have seen, the philosophy of dictatorship. Our own peace and safety are threatened. The question naturally arises— What can we do about it. and the answers are numerous. There arc those who are naturally Fascistminded, and they suggest that we do nothing about it. There are others who are naturally ignorant and they help the cause of Fas cism by suggesting the same cure as those who want to see it take hold in the United States. A per c 0n who suggests that isolationism is the only answer forgets that Fascim knows no sea or mountainAnother answer is War, and most certainly nobody wants to see that. Some of us have been through one. We know something of the heartaches and suffering entailed in trying to kill somebody else. We know the results of war -invalids and hospitals, high taxes, and eventual depression. No-' bodv wants War. and yet. everyi body who refuses to do something I about Fascism is paving the way for oneThe other answer Is to cripple the war machines. Why should we allow Germany. Italy and Ja! pan to kill, maim and murder with money supplied by ourselves. Fifty-seven percent Of all munitions used by Japan to kill Chinese was provided by America. I \nd the money that is used to pay for it is too often American money obtained through the sale of goods in th ; s country. War could be stopped within three months by boycotting Japan. Germany and Italy! Such a movement would be more effective than war and less terrible. De prive Germany of h.r worid mar kctsandyou stop her hellish plans for war' Beau?some Miamians are convinced that this is true they have bands 1 togeth-r, -lews and Christ'ans. to form the Joint Boycott Council against Aggressor Nations. They are meeting with snece-s. not only from consumers but store men. The movement is destined to see even greater suc'' Lot this be said. I "t no man tell vou that boycotting will get this country into war! It is the on e formula that will preserve peace! Again, remember this. A noy,,,. „f Fascist made goods means an increase in American industry and in American wages. If you are against War you should be in favor of stopping it BETH DAVID ANNOUNCES DATES FOB MAY EVENTS The regular meeting of the Beth David Administration Board was held Thursday evening, April 20th in the Talmud Torah.

More than twenty-five men left by cars for West Palm Beach where they Flash! Here's the scoop of the week. Sholem Lodge members should be interested to know that there is a definite movement under way for the organization of a B'nai B'rith Lodge in Havana. Cuba. Your writer has it from authentic sources that certain correspondence between members of Sholem Lodge and prominent Jews of Havana reflects the need of a B'nai B'rith lodge in the latter city. Recent anti-Semitic activities fostered by Nazi circles promped inquiries which came from Havana to Sholem Lodge's Anti-Def amat ion Committee Chairman. Brother Simonhoff. concerning the possibilities of fornrng a Havana lodge. As soon as it is determined by the District Grand Lodge that a B'nai B'rith lodge in Havana would be included in our district, the Fifth Dis were met at the city limits by police escort. After meeting with the membe.-s of the W*st Palm Beach Post, an impressive religious service *W held at Beth El Synagogue, which was attended not only by mem bers of the Miami and West Pain. Beach units, but also by city %  •nc! county dignitaries of West Ptlm Beach. The presentation of colors was made by the Miami unit under the leadership of H. H.

Shuhow, an origin:' 1 composition by Mrs. L. Gerbet. and all present Joined in the singing of songs. Mrs. Henry Seitlin. president, presided. Over seventy five persons were present. trict, according to those "in the know," a delegation from Sholem Lodge will travel to Havana to organize and install the new lodge. We have learned that Brothers "Ike" Levin, Harry Simonhoff, Abe Aronovitz, Al Pallot, and others (perhaps your writer) will make the Havana trip. It seems to be the general consensus of opinion that a Havana lodge is not only essential but highly desirable and that the same should be drawn within the fold of District No. 5.

PEACE EFFORTS
Rochester, (WNS) Nothing
that has been done in the past by
the Jews of America toward the
helping of the stricken Jews of
Europe can hope to meet the
present needs overseas. Rabbi
Jonah B. Wise, national fund rais-
ing chairman l>f the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, said at a conference of the
New York and Eastern Canada
Region of the J. D. C, held here-
"Past standards and assistance
have been discarded by American
Jews in order to meet the critical
situation," he declared. Dr. Wise
asserted that President Roosevelt
evidently chose this time to make
his plea for peace "not because
it was a time of actual war."

of vice-director Robert T- Pell of

tion with the orderly emigration
Of .lews over a five year period
came disturbing news of a revers
al in the Jewish emigration policy
on the part of Nazi authorities-
According to reliable sources it
was felt that the uncertain world
situation may have prompted Ge
' man government officials to set
aside tin- Jewish emigration pol
icy although they indicated to Mr-
Pell they were prepared to go
through with the Rublee agree-
ment providing the projected In-
ternational Corporation, to finance
tlie Jewish exodus and settle the
refugees abroad, was set up.
The same sources revealed, how
that the tense international
political situation has resulted in
new developments. (1) The Ger-
man Government's central emigra-
tion office, established in connec
,i,v with the Rublee agreement,
is not functioning. (2) Jews are
no longer allowed to leave Ger-

USING THE REFUGEES
Recent developments both in German/ and in France wihch
vitally concern the refugee situation serve to accentuate to the
ver an apprehensive tenseness in international affairs.
W ire told that "it is not necessary to take an alarmist vie*
Of the present situation in Europe in order to reach the conclu-
sion that while war is still unlikely the risk of war is very
real"; and recent decrees issued by the French government
subjecting aliensincluding refugees and 'stateless'- persons
to military obligations, and the reported reversal of policy by
German officials regarding the orderly turn in world events is
indeed imminent. While there exists on the part of the refu-
gees themselves the desire to aid their "second Fatherland" and
I sacrifice their lives in defense of the land which granted
refuge one cannot but feel that France's recent move for con^
icription of all her aliens to military service has deep-rooted
significance. From Germany, on the other hand, whose cry
until now was the dire necessity for ridding herself of her Jew
ish minority, there suddenly eminates the possibility of a turn-
about whereby she may refuse to carry out the orderly exodus
recently agreed upon by herself and The Intergovernmental
Commission. Under this change of policy Jews may not be
permitted to leave the country but will be put to work digging
trench* and doine sanitation work. This reversal places in
discard the agreement reached between the Reich and George
kublee regarding the five-year plan for orderly exodus of Jew
Although it is unlikely that the Refugee ***-.
in London within a fortnight will demand that the Naz
rnment hold to the agreement, there is nc.more re son
believe that it will succeed in prevailing upon Germany to ho
that agreement any more than all offiers which she has dis
yarded in recent years.
Boycotting Fascism
(BY REV. MILES BLANCHARD'
\ few years back the world was
ked at the ruthless entrance
Italy in Ethiopia, the wholesale
. .ghter of the natives and the
tless conquest of a people
tj of nothing except the de
to be let alone
Following the successful 'ape
1 ibis small nation Japan un-
ed soldiers on Chinese so.
and proceeded to murder and (
slaughter another people whose
verj philosophy of life has been
based upon peace and non-reels
The world looked on
aghast at this inhumane attack
upon a people already made de-
fen-seless by internal arguments
and dissentions. After this suc-
ful violation of all wlea "'
civilization Germany at once took
st. ps to forment trouble in Aus-
tria and eventually took over the
nation and followed it with the
mosl atrocious "steal" perpetrat-
ed in modern times when it wiped
out the peaceful and industrious
(.unt,y of Czechoslovakia. No*
Italy has gone to work once more
and the Albanian people have lost
their nation, their King and then
independence.
One is inclined to awaken <
the morning and rub his eyes and
,sk if he has not been thrown
Si into the middle ages when
tht. rights of men were ignored
ad when cruelty and barbarism
ub,l the world He asks himse
\t it is possible that in a WOrW
V pridS itself upon being r
:.teed su.b acts can happen as
ES happened within the as J
years. Certainly the whole thing
be a nightmare *-
:; i,a... daughter of mnocent
pTnle. and especially women and
Ch!id?n lives are menaced
T0day '" I by a shrewd
[taly is controlled bj
What are the fruits of Fas
i ism? What can any people ex-
pect when this form of dictator- !
ship (dines into power? The an-
swer can be found in Germany.
It has been said of Russia that it
is atheistic, hut in Germany Adolf
Hitler has not stopped at propa-
ganda BgainBt the church, he has
opened the doors, walked down the
aisle and desecrated the altar. He
has written his own version of
the Bil le. He has declared that
the German race are God's chosen
people.
Ailing on the principle that he I
is God directed he has no limita- j
tio.is. Gone are all fraternal or
ganizatlons such as Masons and
Odd Fellows. Disappeared are all
labor organizations, since any or-
ganizatiom where men meet to-
gether can be the focal point for
the revolution that must of neces-
sity come some day in Germany
German boys and girls are forced
into youth groups, made to carry
arms, dressed in miniature uni-
foms, and taught that Hitler is
next to God and that destiny has
marked the German nation as the
one to dominate the world.
But worse than all this is the
hatred that is implanted in the
hearts of small children, a hatred
they can never possibly overcome
throughout the remainder of their
lives. The Jew has always been
persecuted, but today the persecu-
tion is different It is done, first
of all, in an age when the world
is supposed to have reached some
new high in the dim btowards
civilization. It is done deliberate-
ly not as a result of ignorant
passion. It is done by a nation
that owes much of its success to
Jewish genius. No well read per-
son needs a recounting of the
atrocities that have been directed
to Jewish people *"loly because
,,v are Jewish. Their money has
been taken away from then, their
, home- have been expropriated.
their businesses destroyed. They
have b,cn refused any participa-
tion in the cultural advantages
of Germany. They are faced with
a Ghettolike existence. Then lot
is so miserable that it beggars de
scription.
We hear that Germany has
wiped out unemployment. How-
has it been done? First, by put-
ting thousands into concentration
,,... Second, by taking women
out of industry and forcing them
back to serfdom. Third, by creat-
ing a huge war machine aivd army.
Fourth, by manufacture of ammu-
nitions at huge profits to the man-
ufacturers who are backing Hit-
ler Butmark thisdespite the
fact that 12 million men have
either been put in jail or to work
making destruction the total Pay
0f ail working in Germany is hut
sligb.lv greater than' that receiv-
ed by the workers prior to the
advent of the 12 million In oth-
er words, wages have been cut to
a below subsistence figure. As a
matter of fact Germans today are
on starvation diets, with huttei
and e*gs at prohibitive prices
and other articles of (bets in UM
-aine price lisl
It might be well enough to say
that German's starvation and self
destruction is her own- business, if
Germany was minding her own
business, and yet such is not the
case. Germany has never learned
the lesson of minding its own
business. It has laid plans for
world domination by introducing
its brand of Fascism throughout
the rest of the world. We were
startled a few days ago to discov- ;
er that an intercepted message to
Berlin, originating in Argentina,,
decoded, stated that everything
was ready for the taking over of
Patagonia, the great plateau at
the tip end of South Americ. Ger-
many had even turned her eyes to i
our hemisphere, double cross'ng
a nation that up to that time
had been very friendly towards it J
In our own country there is am-
pie evidence that German money
has been active in promoting an
ti-Semitism, the opening wedge
for Fascism. Our own city has 1
not escaped the threats of having j
an organization within it that col-
lects money for literature through
the United States mail, the same
organization being based upon the
hatred of the Jew.
SOCIETY
In other words, the peace of 'he
world is threatened by the men
ace of the most barbaric philoso-
phy that we have seen, the phil-
osophy of dictatorship. Our own
peace and safety are threatened.
The question naturally arises
What can we do about it. and the
answers are numerous. There arc
those who are naturally Fascist-
minded, and they suggest that we
do nothing about it. There are
others who are naturally ignorant
and they help the cause of Fas
cism by suggesting the same cure
as those who want to see it take
hold in the United States. A per
c0n who suggests that isolationism
is the only answer forgets that
Fascim knows no sea or mountain-
Another answer is War, and
most certainly nobody wants to
see that. Some of us have been
through one. We know something
of the heartaches and suffering
entailed in trying to kill somebody
else. We know the results of war
-invalids and hospitals, high tax-
es, and eventual depression. No-'
bodv wants War. and yet. every-
i body who refuses to do something
I about Fascism is paving the way
for one-
The other answer Is to cripple
the war machines. Why should
we allow Germany. Italy and Ja-
! pan to kill, maim and murder with
money supplied by ourselves.
Fifty-seven percent Of all muni-
tions used by Japan to kill Chi-
nese was provided by America.
I \nd the money that is used to pay
for it is too often American
money obtained through the sale
of goods in th;s country.
War could be stopped within
three months by boycotting Japan.
Germany and Italy! Such a
movement would be more effective
than war and less terrible. De
prive Germany of h.r worid mar
kctsandyou stop her hellish plans
for war'
Beau?- some Miamians are
convinced that this is true they
have bands 1 togeth-r, -lews and
Christ'ans. to form the Joint Boy-
cott Council against Aggressor
Nations. They are meeting with
snece-s. not only from consumers
but store men. The movement is
destined to see even greater suc-
'' Lot this be said. I "t no man
tell vou that boycotting will get
this country into war! It is the
one formula that will preserve
peace!
Again, remember this. A noy-
,,,. f Fascist made goods means
an increase in American industry
and in American wages.
If you are against War you
should be in favor of stopping it

HOME NEWS REFUGEE REPORT
What happened to President
Attention James Marshall, head Roosevelt's refugee committee?
. And has any one heard any
thing
of the New York City Board of
Education: Letterheads bearing
the name of Thomas F. Mulligan,
importer, of 287 Hudson Street,
N'ew York, are being distributed
free of charge to public schools
for use as scrap paper. These
letterheads, printed on good paper,
carry, on the bottom, a line read-
ing: "America, discovered, settled
and developed by Christians, ought
co be exclusively for true born
Christians" .... Our exhaustive
researches brought out the fat*,
that no such Mr. Mulligan "xists
and nobody seems to know exactly
who is distributing the lettei-
heads. Even the telephone num-
ber given. Walker 8489. ami the
cable address, Mulbla, provide no
clues. How come New York's
Muca Temple, a Masonic institu-
tion, has been rented :o the Wii-
Semitic American Nationalist
Party for a meeting early in May?
. We hope somebr-ly wili pro-
duce a play called "N'izht = in Ar-
mor," which is about th assas.-si-
nation of a man whoso death
'>. ings peace- Every Nazi of-
fitial in Berlin has beei sent a

it means that Hitler's "M e i n
Kampf" is rapidly reaching the
head of the bestseller list.....
Personally we would p-?fer to see
kme. anti-Fascist book" leading*

that America's self-styled Hitler,
our old friend Mr. Hea'.y, is a
fugitive from justice, having
jumped bail? .
ALBANIA BLUES
Washington- believes that the
Albania junket was merely a little
me-too-ing on the part of Musso-
li;, to show his partnc- that he
can't txpect to remain the only

the year is over. ... If hi- is. it'll

Faik Bey Konitza, Albanian Min-
ister to Washington, will never be
evicted from his official quarters
by the Italians. He transacts
his official business from his res-
idential suite in the Mayflower
Hotel. We'd like to know whom
Winchell means when he hints
that a Wall Street banking house
is paying Franco's bills in Spain.
. The Nazis in the Argentine,
reliable sources tell us, are ready
for a big putsch before summer. .
further about the contract
between that committee and the
Hitler government which Mr. Rub-
lee was supposed to have nego
tiated a couple of months ago?
. We'll tell you: A few well-
known Jewish leaders are trying
to revive the plan, but a large
number of influential Jewish
people f in't believe in It.
And they're right. Because the
Ahole scheme would bring foreign
,-urrency into Germany. Dr-
Joseph Rosen, back from a survey
of the African territory spoken
of as a possible colony for Jewish
refugees which the British turned
back when it reached Pales tine
constituted a test case. It was

the British administration there

NAZI HOT STUFF
Orchids to the New York Daily
News for its recent editorial
quoting Hitler on the duty of in-
ferior people to avoid having chil-
dren, and then asking whether
Badolf's childlessness is merely an
instance of his practicing what
he preaches. Congratulations
to the Warner Brothers for their
bright idea for a gift to Hitler on
his 50th (birthday. They sent
him a copy of their "Confessions
of a Nazi Spy" film. Did you
know that on April Fool's day a
Washington funster spread the ru-
mor that Hitler was about to be
assassinatedand when, that af-
ternoon, the Furore's broadcast
was suddenly cut off, half the
capital believed he had really been
done in? ... If you want to
know why most European crises
find Hitler in his Berchtesgaden
mountain retreat, we'll reveal that
it's because he believes in being
nrepared for all eventualities. .
He has a veritable fortress there,
well stocked with food, in which

upon every Jewish resilient who is qualified to vote, hut has not yet registered,
that he is truly shirking his duty unless he has fulfilled the rights of BUffrage
which he possesses and which in fairness and decency he should exercise. We
owe it to ourselves as citizens and Jews to register immediately.

Flash! Here's the scoop of the
week. Sholem Lodge members
should be interested to know that
there is a definite movement un-
der way for the organization of
a B'nai B'rith Lodge in Havana.
Cuba. Your writer has it from
authentic sources that certain cor-
respondence between members of
Sholem Lodge and prominent Jews
of Havana reflects the need of a
B'nai B'rith lodge in the latter
city. Recent anti-Semitic activi-
ties fostered by Nazi circles
promped inquiries which came
from Havana to Sholem Lodge's
Anti-Def amat ion Committee
Chairman. Brother Simonhoff.
concerning the possibilities of
fornrng a Havana lodge. As soon
as it is determined by the District
Grand Lodge that a B'nai B'rith
lodge in Havana would be includ-
ed in our district, the Fifth Dis
were met at the city limits by
police escort.
After meeting with the membe.-s
of the W*st Palm Beach Post, an
impressive religious service *W
held at Beth El Synagogue, which
was attended not only by mem
bers of the Miami and West Pain.
Beach units, but also by city nc!

The presentation of colors was

five persons were present.
trict, according to those "in the
know," a delegation from Sholem
Lodge will travel to Havana to
organize and install the new lodge.
We have learned that Brothers
"Ike" Levin, Harry Simonhoff,
Abe Aronovitz, Al Pallot, and
others (perhaps your writer) will
make the Havana trip. It seems
to be the general consensus of
opinion that a Havana lodge is
not only essential but highly de-
sirable and that the same should
be drawn within the fold of Dis-

(Pd. Political Adv.)
Your reporter has good news
about the Hillel Society at the
University of Florida at Gaines
tille- The group has made a defi-
nite impression on the campus. It
has been invited to participate in
two outstanding projects to be un-
dertaken next school year by the
University Religious Council. This
Council has as its chairman Dr
Johnson, head of the Y. M. C. A.,
and Department of Bible of the
University, and consists of the
heads of the seven organized re
ligioui groups on the campus,
namely: Y. M. C. A. Baptist.
Methodist. Episcopal. Christian
Science, Catholic and Jewish- The
first project will bring to the I tli
versity five refugee students,
three Christian and two Jewish.
The two Jewish fraternities have
offered board and lodging to the
two Jewish students. The Uni-
versity will waive most, if not all.
of the tuition fees. Hillel will
buy books, pay frr laundry, inci
dentals, etc of the Jewish stu
dents. Rabbi Eichhoin states that
both Christian and Jewish stu-
dent leaders are keenly interested
in this project Project No. 2 is
to conduct a "religious awaken-
ing" campaign on the campus by
securing the services of outstand
.r/g liberal Catholic, Protestan'
ind Jewish preacjiers who will
work jointly in an effort to bring
to the students the ethical nrd
spiritual truths which these rei'T
ions have in common. The ex-

both of the aforementioned pro-

"Molly Picon," the undisputed

her houseful of fans a bright new

Saturday at the Cameo Theatre
The wide-eyed uomedienne, who
has the good sense to play the
hoyden rather than feign glamour,
is provided with a warmly human
story and a first-rate supporting
cast. There's nothing heavy or
antiquated about this Jewish fi'.m.
It's as modern as though it had
just come out of Hollywood, and
Julian Leigh's English titles mak'
it understandable to the non-com-
prehenders who are sure to find it
enjoyable.

Best story of the week is the
following, relayed by Walter Win-
chell, who says he got it from a
refugee. During the November
pogroms, they say in Berlin.
President Roosevelt sent Adolf a
cable reading: "Understand you
have 300.000 Jews you'd like lJ
get rid of. Send them to the U-
S. A- We will pay you one dol
lar per head" ... To which Hit-
ler is said to have replied: "For-
ward $100.00(1. We will send you
that number of Jews. Need the
other 200,000 for propaganda."

or illegally. (3) Instead of con-
sidering German Jews as "alien
enemies" in the event of war and
isolating them in camps, they will
be spread throughout the Reich
and forced to dig trenches and
do sanitary and other work.
While in Berlin Mr. Pell had
discussed with Nazi officials the
work already done by the Inter
governmental Committee in con-
nection with the plan set up by-
George Rublee. retired director of
the Committee, and Dr. Helmuth
Wohlthat. head of the Reich Eco-
nomics Ministry- These BCCOm
plishments were contained in a
memorandum which also specified
what the Committee expected the
German Government to do in ful-
filling its end of the bargain.
It is expected that Mr Pell will
return to Berlin within two weeks
for a reply on the demands con-
tained in the memorandum now
being examined by Nazi officials
At the same time it is hoped that
reports on surveys made by com
missions sent to British Guiana.
the Philippines, Northern Rho-
desia and other territories will be
available and in which the German
Government is deeply interested-
