A program for the mass settle-

Germany and other lands and out-
lining possibilities for the ab-
sorption of 2.800000 settlers was
submitted to the committee by the
American Emergency Committee
on Palestine Affairs and the
United Palestine Appeal.
Declaring that Palestine has
been consistently in the forefront
among the countries to accept
new immigrants, the memoran-
dum revealed that during the pe-
riod from 1933-38 a total of
215.000 Jews entered Palestine. Of
this number 65.000 came from
Germany. It estimated that
30.000 Jews came into the country
from January 1. 1939 through
September of this year, pointing
to the fact that Palestine "not
only received more immigrants
than any other country but
equalled the number absorbed by
all other major overseas immigra-
tion centers combined." The mem-
orandum emphasizes that "Pales-
tine itself is the outstanding
of the Jewish people, challenging
and disproving all allegation as to
and giving encouragement to all
laads to welcome the refugees as
mentioned- volunteers and holders
of military distinctions. (3) Per-

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J. MRON)
When Hitler loses the war he won't have to run off to
Holland. ... It seems that his retreat at Berchtesgaden is the
ultimate in fortresses, with plenty of food stores, so that he
could hold out there against all comers for years. We
can't help wondering whether Adolf realized, when he had that
peace talk Sven Hedin last week, that the famous Swedish ex-
plorer, whom the Fuehrer is said to admire greatly, has a strong
non-Aryan strain, in his blood and is the author of a book on
Jerusalem. With all the plans now under discussion for
the finding of territories for the large-scale settlement of Jew-
ish refugees the article which Arthur Meyerowitz has in the
current Jewish Forum is most timely indeed. Giving a
review of the history of Jewish territorialism, the article just
fits in with the news of the day, what with President Roose-
velt's conference considering the settlement of German Jews in
the Philippines and the Dominican Republic, and Mussolini
preparing once more to broach the plan for a large Jewish
settlement in the country once ruled by the Queen of Sheba.
... It is told that the reason why Nazi flyers are so daring in
the current war is to be found in the fact that they are sys-
tematically doped before they take off. And that those
"widely heralded steel vests which the Nazi soldiers on the
Western front wear provide only psychological protection.'
' They're made1 of an ersatz that any bullet that knows its
business can easily pierce. .
FOR A LAUGH
A story that's good even if it may not be entirely .accurate
is told of Ribbentrop's recent visit to Moscow. The Rus-
sians, it's reported, couldn't find any swastika banners to deco-
rate the flying field at which the latter-day Bismarck! was ex-
pected to arrive. The situatiou was finally solved when
one of the Soviet leaders rushed to the nearest movie studio
