that the arrival in Ixindon of David

Agency for Palestine will appeal
to the British Government to delay

Washington, a draft for $3000 was
immediately appropriated from
BVai B'rith's Emergency Relief

cabled to London this week. The
$3000 was dispatched to Julius

the lodges and auxiliaries in En-
gland, Scotland, Wales and Ire-

and committed itself to the care
of 900 of the 5000 children

Up to the outbreak of the war,
the B'nai B'rith Council for Jew-

been spending in excess of
$125,000 a year to maintain, house

Violation of Good Faith
Rumania is making a valiant effort to satisfy her minorities.
Far-reaching concessions have been made to the Russian and
Hungarian populations in Rumania. There is only one exception
the Jews. A recent government decree once more has stipu-
lated that all inhabitants of the annexed territories are enti-
tled to citizenship, except the Jews.
According to various estimates 150,000 Jews in Rumania
have been deprived of citizenship. Rumania wants to pacify all
those minorities of whom she is afraid because they are parts of
hrge and powerful nations. It does not hesitate, however, to
violate the solemn obligations it assumed towwd the Jews in the
peace treaty. The history of Rumania, as far as the Jews are
concerned, is characterized by violation of every peace treaty,
beginning with the Berlin treaty of 1879. The Jews are the only
minority who have been consistently loyal to the Rumanian
state. Yet the Rumanian government brazenly disregards all
treaties insofar as the Jews are concerned.
Let us hope that out of this war a new order will arise which
v.ill make it impossible for countries to persecute those ctf their
citizens who are defenseless.
COUHTMY TM TM0l. U. A. N. ft PWUCATK
Sidney I.. Segall
Brother Henry Monsky, Nation-
al president of B'nai B'rith, in a
recent article printed in the Na-
tional B'nat B'rith Jewish Month-
ly, issue of October 1939. has made
some statements which are both
interesting and timely. Your
writer would like to use this col-
umn to point out a few highlights
in Bro. Monsky's article.
The keynote or theme of the
article referred to is "leadership."
Bro. Monsky cautions, adivisedly,
that we need 'leaders who have
moral stamina" and says they
must be "men who feel that spi-
ritual and qualitive values are
no alien in the cosmic
order. ." He farther
States: "It is regrettable that
many of the men whi have taken
authority in Jewish life are either
cynical with reference to eternal
values or else so utterly blasted in
spirit that they impart their lack
of moral stamina to those whom
they influence." (Emphasis ours.)
As a further requisite for Jew-
ish leadership, Bro. Monsky. im-
pressively sets forth. quoting
again his expressions concerning
qualifications of Jewish leaders:
"They must be steeped in Jewish
learning and tradition. A good
voice, h.iwever resonant, is no sub-
stitute for an adequate Jewish
background." (Emphasis your re-
porter's.) In this same connection
he says: "Affable drawing-room
mannt'is. however useful in am-
bassadorial service to the non-Jew
are no substitute for the living
inspiration which comes from an
immersion in historical values."
Strange but true, your writer
points out, with reluctance, that
many of our self styled leaders
have never had a fundamental
background in Jewish history or
Bro. Monsky ably emphasizes
the prime requisite that the "per-
sonalities of our leaders must be
subordinated to the higher cause,
the welfare Of Israel. The ability
to submerge self for the achieve
merit of the ideal is the true test
This column does not permit
space to write more fully about
the above mentioned article. We.
therefore, recommend that every
Ben Brith read Bro. Monsky's ir
tide, it' you have not already done

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(BY PHINEAS J BIRON)
The crime of the ages is being committed by those experts,
the Nazis, in Poland. Because relietf work there might help
the situation of the Polish Jews the German authorities have
refused the proffered aid of the Quakers. Even the black-
out can have ailverlining. ... In Berlin people have been
finding anti-Hitler handbills in their pockets after bumping
into strangers in the dark streets. Hitler's next stunt will
be a call for repatriation of Germans living in all parts of the
world. ... If you want to know how news of the outer world
occasionally trickles into censor-ridden Naziland you'll be in-
terested to hear of the latest subterfuge. ... It was an Ameri-
can friend of a German who thought up the plan of sending
over chocolate-coated marshmallow bars with a message stuffed
inside the fillings and this procedure has become quite popular.
. One of its advantages is that the consor is sure to get in-
digestion from having to eat so many marshmallow bars. .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
The official mastermind of the German propaganda in this
country is one Heinz Beler, wh'o was sent here by Goebbels to
be what he euphemistically calls "director of the German Li-
brary of Information." Soon it will come out that Fritz
Kulm had a secrel meeting with the Rev. Gerald Winrod, Kan-
sas anti-Semite, two years ago to map out thai un-Amercian
campaign plan which Winrod so aggressively sponsored. .
Max Reinhardl was greatly pained recently to learn thai the
famous Salzburg eastle which used to b'e his served as the
'iieeting-place of Nazi and Soviel delegates last summer for a
conference thai resulted in that notorious pact. Most ap-
propriate Chanukah gifl we can suggest is a slender bu.1 funny
picture book published by Hillman-Curl and entitled "Keedle."
... It (lesci-il.es. in color-cartoons, Hitler's rise and decline,
until on the last page he ends up as a louse being gqnashfed be-
tween the tliuinli and forefinger of civilization. And if
you do your Chanukah shopping in New York don't, forget to
patronize the sale of refugee art and handicrafts in the Empire
State Building. That Muich time-bomb, claim the Broad-
way wags, was flown over from England hidden iii tfcje folds of
('hamberiain's umbrella. .
Walter Winchell, who did a swell job reporting the Fritz
Kuhn trial, gleefully observed that on day the prosecutor acci-
dentally called the Nazi fuehrer "Kohn." Winchell pre-
dicts that if Kuhn is sentenced to a prison term the warden of
the jail will be the chief sufferer. ... It seem that when Kuhn
recently was confined in the Tombs the prisoners in his cell row
/igorously and vociferously protested against his presence in
ing chosen, incidentally, one of the important questions that
their vicinity. When the jurors for the Kuhn trial were be-
determined their suitability concerned Winchell's collmn. ,
The defense didn't welcome Walter's faithful readers. .
Din'1 be surprised it' the HIAs and ORT will be part of
ihe I'nited Jewish Appeal next year. This continent is
going to have its first Alpine Jewish winter resort when the
Hotel Vermont ;it Sic. AgathV des Molds in Canada's Lauren-
tian -Mounltains opens its winter season this year. Fea-
tured activities will be skiing in the daytime and pinochle at
night, with bridge for the ladies. "The American Friends
of Palestine" is really anotHer name for thr Revisionist wing
of the American Zionists. There's a great deal of anxiety
in official Zionist circles because the British Colonial Office
is preparing to revive its determination to push through the
White Paper of last May and to specify the regions in which
Jews will not be aide to buy lafcd in Palestine. : Wiezmann
will arrive on our shores via Clipper the first week of Decem-
ber, and will be given a mass welcome at Madison Square Gar-
den. Strenuousbut, we predict, unsuccessfulefforts
will be made to get former Justice Louis D. Brandeis to par-
ticipate in the meeting. .
