THE JEWISH HOMELAND GOES ON
To those who have been under the impression that the
war has caused many Jews to flee from Palestine it will come
as a surprise to learn that the Holy Land's Jewish population
has increased 24,000 in the last 11 months of the war. This has
been announced in Jerusalem by Eliahu Dobkin, director of the
Jewish Agency's Immigration Department. The 24,000 includ-
ed 16,000 immigrantslegal and illegaland a natural in-
crease of 8,000. Over the past 22 years the Jewish population
has increased tenfold, from 50,000 to 500,000.
These figures speak well for the vitality of the Jewish
homeland in the midst of the war. With Haifa already bombed
three times and with the war in the Near East assuming larger
proportions, there is no doubt that Palestine is not the most
comfortable place in the world in which to live today. Un-
doubtedly, the population must be going without many lux- j
uries and conveniences as a result of the sharp restriction of
But still refugees work desperately to find their way to
Palestine. They seek to arrange passage through Soviet Rus-
sia, or try to cross Turkey and Syria.
The force that drives European Jews to Palestine is strong-
er than any fear of air raids or material inconvenience. The
war has brought vindication more strongly than ever to those
who argued the need for such a haven. War or no war, the
Jewish homeland goes on.
CYRIL A. SMACK
Let me speak to the people whose wide open eyes
Might have seen what was coming on earth.
Let me speak to the people who might have been wise
In encouraging justice and worth.
Let me sing, as a dirge, over frail, little things
Children, slain in the sand and the sod;
This the death for our babies the dictator brings,
In defiance of justice and God.
Peace is never attained by the forfeit of right,
For the blackmailer's gluttony grows.
And the bully is prone to exult in the plight
Of the fools who submit to his blows.
All our fathers obtained with their wisdom and grit
We can cast to the winds in a breath.
Men and nations go mad, but the same can't submit,
Or their choice is but madness or death.
There's a rotten heart growing. It kills as it grows
Chokes the good as it spreads on the earth.
If it lives and you live, as the calendar goes,
Tell me, what will survival be worth?
A nonentity> then, you will do as you're told.
You wiH wish you had dared to go down with the bold,
As you fawn, with the vile and the dumb.
Let the good of our manhood and womanhood rise
And assail all that threatens life's best
Let our pledge be, "We'll battle till Tyranny dies.
It shall know neither comfort or rest."
Not for long shall the plunderers pillage and take.
We'll emerge from this horrible night.
Let the perjurers pause; let the murderers quake,
For humanity rises to fight.
COUPLE OF LETTERS
By Al Segal
In the course of the week I re-
ceived two letters from two
widely separated people. Both
asked me whether I am a Jew.
Both called on me to confess
publicly that I am a Jew, if I
were one. It was as if I had
been caught in sin and must
make public confession thereof.
Of course, by now everybody
who reads this column has
guessed that I am indeed a Jew.
But I write another column in
the daily press. In that column
I write nothing Jewishly. I write
about cabbages and kings, seal-
ing wax and things. So it tell
recently that I wrote on compul-
sory military training. I rather
favored it for the proper defense
of the nation, considering the
way things are going in the
This caused the two citizens
strongly to suspect that I must
be a Jew.
Jews, they wrote, want to drag
the country into war for the
money that's in it; Jews want re-
venge on Hitler. Therefore, since
1 have declared for conscription
I must be a Jew. Both chal-
lenged me: Tell us in your next

What impressed me was the
two letters seemed to come from
different layers of moronism.
One was written in a scrawl that
suggested that the writer had net

The latter was a white collar
man who had probably written
the letter in the office where he

letter appeared to belong to the
So it seemed that the idea
that there is something Jewish
in defending the United States
was having a considerable
spread. Here I sat seeing it
spread from the lower grade mo-
ron who hadn't yet mastered
simple orthography to the higher
grade moron who could use a
It was quite evident that these
weren't people who brood in the
solitude of their studies and
think out original ideas to give
mankind. I could feei quite sure
that the idea that the plan for
national defense was a Jewish
plot was not of their own think-
In fact, they aren't given to
thinking at all. The processes
of their minds are not conscious.
They are more like the garbage
can, which just stands in its cor-
ner and waits to receive what-
ever is thrown into it. Does the
garbage can discriminate? It
takes whatever is given it.
These minds had festered in
their dark corners and somebody
had come along and dropped in-
to each one the idea that this
movement to defend America
impregnably was of Jewish insti-
gation. The fact that these let-
ters were from two different
kinds of hands suggested that
more than one individual was
going about dropping this idea
into empty and receptive heads.
This is what troubled me. My
troubling was that of an Ameri-
can who is distressed at what is
going on in this country in this
hour of its danger. It is the same
kind of foul whispering that was
carried about in all the countries
of Europe until the time Hitler
was ready to pluck them.
It is the same technique of dis-
sension, suspicion, hate and, fin-
ally, division, that found these
countries defenseless and pros-
trate when Hitler's day came.
I, the Jew, can endure these
slanders. I have suffered much

which lawlessness, violence and

and to a lesser extent Norway
and Holland, can, in peacetime,
live without large imports of
food. They are now threatened
with a scarcity. It is because
their invaders ravaged their
countries and looted their provis-
ions. Whatever they might re-
ceive from the outside world
would simply provide fresh booty
for their conquerors. Nor would
any German assurances to the
contrary improve matters, since
Hitler and his subordinates have
openly declared that they do not
recognize it as a duty to keep
pacts with foreign governments."

WELL KNOWN STAR
PLAYS LAST ROLE
Maurice Moscovitch, interna-
tionally known character actor,
died at the age of seventy while
he was engaged in an important
role in RKO's "Dance. Girl,
Dance." Moscovitch was playing
the part of a dancing teacher in
the picture and already had
worked several weeks in the
film. His death necessitates en-
tire reshooting of all the se-
quences in which he appeared,
since the character he was por-
traying must appear in several
more scenes in addition to those
he already had done. The iron-
ical part of this story is the fact
that the final week's shooting for
Mr. Moscovitch included a scene
portryaing his death.

are being made for the same for

Next week we shall give you
more details and tell you about

this time. I want to express my
thanks to the person who is re-
sponsible for the success of this
great project. Mrs. Leon Lieber-

summer, day and night, to make
this an outstanding success.
Not only did she supervise the
purchase of supplies and the
feeding of the children, but she
took an interest in every depart-
ment to see that things ran
smoothly. As chairman of the
Board, she has set an example
for diligent work. All of us at
the "Y" appreciate the work that
she is doing and wish her God
speed and success for what she
has done. Her husband. Leon,
worked hand in hand with her.

Geneva (WNS)Nazi authori-

to permit Alsatian refugees now
in Switzerland to return to their

were not permitted to return.
The number of refugees has
been small because of reports
here of typhoid, smallpox and in-
fectious cattle diseases in the
Nazi-occupied territory. Alsatian
munitions factories are operating
day and night shifts, but many
other factories have shut down
as a result of a shortage of raw
Unemployed Alsatians receive

than 40 cents.

more than this in all my time. I
have been burned and put to the
sword and had my throat cut. So
this is just another pain.
But I. the American, am wor-
ried: Can America endure
through these perils while rats
within and from without gnaw
at its foundations?
The feeble-minded were not
unprepared to believe that there
is something Jewish in the idea
of defending America adequate-
ly. About a year ago they were
hearing evil suspicions from the
mouth of one whose tongue had
been dedicated to speak only
that which was truth and that
which was clean and above re-
proach. Coughlin was imputing
a Jewish connotation to events in
the world. He was taking words
from the mouth of Goebbels "and
making them his own. One Sun-
day he faked a word picture of
mankind marching to battlefields
and being sacrificed behind Jew-
ish commanders singing Jewish
So it becomes easy for the
feebler minds to believe whis-
perers who go about hunting
empty heads into which to plant
maggots of treason "This is

It is in accordance with his
blue-print for treason: You start

I lie will do but it must always be
a lie that connects Jews with au-
thority in the government. A lot
of people don't like Jews anyway
and if you make it strong enough
! their dislike for the Jews will
spill over on the government.
This is the spade work that opens
the way for tanks and mobilized
divisions. Prejudice, hate and
suspicion have paralyzed the de-
Had I considered these letters
worthy of an answer I would
have said, Yes, I am a Jew and I
am in favor of conscription even
if it takes my sons. Your let-
ters make it even more convinc-
ing that America must be im-
pregnably defended! for on these
' letters I detect the finger-prints
of Hitler already in America.
(Incidentally, I am quite aware
that had I come out against con-
scription people of some other
groups would have written that
I must be a Jew because I am
against defending the country,
that I am a Communist and all
that, and that I should be made
to go back where I came from.)

NATURE OF FAITH
"This is a mysterious world,
and it presents itself to us as a
strange dualismlight and dark-
ness, right and wrong, good and j
evil, happiness and pain. Every-
thing comes in opposites. All
the great religions have seen life j
thus in terms of conflict.
"Now if in that dualism man
thinks that evil is the basic ele-
ment, then he faces the abyssmal
mystery of good. Where did
good come from in a world whose
basic element is evil?
"But if a man believes the
good to be the basic element in
reality, while he does face the
mystery of evil it may be that
in the end good can conquer evil,
triumph over it, transmute it,
and win a victory worthy of the
long travail of the ages. That is
what believing in God means. It
is not a neat, slick and varnished
creed; it is a venture of faith
and in a world where there is
mystery either way, good, and
not evil, is the basic and creative
factor at the heart of reality."

ers at the 45th annual encamp-
ment of the Jewish War Veter-
ans of the United States meet-
ing here Wednesday, August 28
through Sunday, September 1. it
was announced by Harold Seid-
enberg. president of the Jewish
War Veterans Convention Cor-
Reservations received indicat-
ed that more than 10,000 veterans
] and their families will attend the
Boston convention. The conven-
tion will formally open Wednes-
day morning, August 28, with an
address by Commander-in-chief
Edgar H. Burman. This will im-
mediately precede the first bus-
iness session of the convention.
That evening, the veterans will
be the guests of the Women's
Auxiliary at a reception and op-
en house. In the afternoon, the
Women's Auxiliary will tender a
tea, at the Hotel Vendome, to the
Gold Star Mothers of Boston and
"One bright hope, it seems to
me, is that these dictators, sus-
picious now of each other, ene-
mies at heart right now, jealous
of each other, are going to fight
among themselves. They have
to. In their travel toward their
goal to control the world, they
are going to cross the path of an-
other dictator seeking to control
"And when the course of elim-
ination commences and they
fight each other, there will be a
brighter day than now exists for
democracy."Senator George W.
"The survival of democracy in
the United States depends upon
the survival of free education
and of free religion. Democracy,
most complicated, most difficult,
and most delicate of all social
mechanisms, has never survived
where education and religion
were not free. Where the exer-
cise of free religion has not been
strong enough to counteract the
opportunity of conquest and the
subjugation of other men, dem-
ocracy has failed and imperial-
ism resulted. In such countries,
there may be democracy at
home where religion is free, but
not abroad where free religion
has not been taught. In general
we may say that democracy has
grown strong and weak in exact
proportion to the weakness or
strength of free religion."Hen-
ry Noble MacCracken, President,
Dr. Federbusch, Chief Rabbi of Finland, who Visited the
United States Recently.

George Washington was a Mi-

remained true to the teachings
