The German government refused permission to the Quak-
ers to extend relief to the people in Poland regardless of faith
and race. The Quakers took the stand that no American relief
organization would work in Germany unless it was permitted
to do so on a non-sectarian basis.
After weeks of haggling, while millions of human beings
were starving, the Nazis have not yet yielded so far as, to per-
mit the Quakers to give milk to Jewish children. Those who
assumed that German fiendishness could not be surpassed
stand aghast. Apparently' the German government is trying to
siarve the Jews. Jews are not allowed to buy food until the
afternoon hours, itfter the non-Jews have made their purchases.
Thousands of Jews are being rounded up and sent to the Lub-
lin district. The Nazis are taking every means to make the lot
of the Jews as unbearable as possible.
Under the present conditions those who try to help iheir
kin by sending them money or food parcels may only help the
Nazis who are- eager for foreign exchange and food. There is
no assurance that the recipients are not robbed of these gifts.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHTXBAS J. MIRON)
An indication that the Berlin-Rome axis is breaking down
Js seen in the> frantic efforts of Goebbels' propaganda depart-
ment to convince the Germans that it ain't so. Gabby Joe
is flooding Germany with postcards showing Hitler and Mus-
solini arm in arm. But we're inclined to believe Danton
Walker, who predicts that Mussolini is going to come out open-
ly on the side of the Allies within five weeks. The digni-
fied London Times, succumbing to the strain, recently fea-
tured the headline "How Hitler Is Egged In" over a story de-
scribing the Fuehrer's latest furorean egg diet. Most
celebrated casualty of London's blackouts to date is one Mr.
Steiner, whom you know as Leslie Howard. He suffered a
couple of broken bones in an automobile crash in a darkened
street. And what book do you think is the current best-
seller in France? \ It's that old collectios of prophecies
by the sixteenth-century Jewish physician and astrologer Mich-
el Nostradamus. ... It seems that Nostradamus predicted
that some time in the twentieth century destruc-
tion would come to Paris through the air from the Eastand
the French want to know all the details. Very disturbing
are the rumors going the rounds about the reason why ex-
President Benes of Czechoslovakia is being cold-shouldered! in
British diplomatic circles. .
OF ALL THINGS
Tin' general staffs of various European countries are all
agog aboul the success of Dr. Gregory Pincus in. producing a
fatlrerless rabbit, we hear. Washington is buzz-buzzing
that Roosevelt will accept a third term only if by the time the
Democratic National Convention rolls around Hitler still is
threatening Europeand, indirectly, the United States. .
riieiv's an ever-deepening mystery aboul that trip of Max
Schmeling to these Cnited Stateswhich, by the way, has no'
been confirmed as we write this. Some claim that Schmel-
ing is trying to escape from the clutches of the Nazis, .
Others insist that his coming is a Nazi plot, the plan being to
ise him as a good-will ambassador for Germany in the same
manner as the French are preparing to use Charles Hover \'<>v
their team. Frau Thomsen, beautiful wife of the German
iharge d'affaires at Washington, frets little opportunity to ex-
hibit her pulchritude nowadays. The capital's social whirl
passes her by. nothing German being popular. .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
An urgent appeal for help has been received by Dr. A. J.
Rongy from the Palestine Jewish Medical Association. Due
to Hitler et al. the number of Jewish physicians in Palestine
has increased from 390 in 1933 to over 2,500 today. Hun-
dreds of them cannot get their licenses to practise, either be-
cause they entered the country illegally or for other reasons.
. Something must be done to help these unemployed
doctors in Palestine survive. The J. D. C. or the
U. P. A. or both should look into the matter and find a solu-
tion. Those who believe that the trouble with Palestine is
that the Zionists don't know anything about Arabs should
know that Leonard Stein, who for many years was one of Dr.
Weizmann's most valued advisers, is recognized in French cir-
cles as one of the world's greatest authorities on Syria. \ .
And the French, who used to have a mandate over Syria, ought
to khow. American Zionist circles view as a serious breach
of discipline that article by Elihu Stone recently published in
the Jewish Morning Journal, in which he uses undiplomatic
language in s&peaking of the President of the Zionist Organiza-
tion < America. Don't be surprised if Mr. Stone gets a
public calling-down^ .
If you want to laugh at, Hitler don't miss Sam Levene'*
performance as Officer Finkelstein in Clare Boothe's "Margin
for Error," the new stage hit with which Henry Luce's wife
lias started off this season. From Sidney Skolsky conies
the tale of the Berlin Jew whose shop was invaded by th|e
Gestapo. While the Nazis were beating up their victim,
his parrot, perched high above their reach; kept up a running
