In April of this year, before the Democratic Convention was held, he wrote to the Cleveland Plain Dealer and stated his opposition to a third term for Roosevelt. He had supported Roosevelt in 1932 and 1936 and is still an admirer of his. After Roosevelt was nominated, the Cleveland Plain Dealer asked Rabbi Silver whether he was still of the same opinion. Rabbi Silver then, on August 6th, 1940. wrote his now famous letter to the Cleveland Plain Dealer in which he expressed his opposition to the third term and endorsed Willkie as follows: "The 'no-third-term' tradition has been vindicated by a century and a half of American experience, and it is particularly important in these days, when the indispensable-one-manrule is exalted in so many parts of the world at the expense of the democratic faith in laws and institutions rather than in persons, that it should not be repudiated."

SHOCHET Managing Editor Eatored as second class matter July 4, 1930 at the Post Ofice of Miami. Florida, under the Act of March 3. 1879 SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR I ? on SIX MON THS S 1 w FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1940 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 44 THE INVASION OF GREECE The Axis determination to penetrate into the Near East has been demonstrated now by Italy's war declaration against Greece with the obvious intention of carrying the war into Turkey with a view not only to reaching the Suez Canal, but also the rich oil fields of Iraq. Thus, on the twenty-second anniversary of the Balfour declaration this week, Palestine finds itself closer and closer to the actual war field. Hitehrto plavina a passive role in the war, Palestine may become soon an active war zone, especially if Htiler secures air and naval bases in Syria under the newly-signed Hitler-Petain agreement of "cooperation." News reaching the United States from Palestine indicates that the Yishuv is prepared for anything that may happen. There is, however, one concern to which timely attention of American Jewry should be drawn. This is the possible shortage of certain foodstuffs that may develop in Palestine should the Syrian frontier be completely closed and should warfare in Egypt reach serious proportions. Palestine has always depended on import, especially in bread, sugar and other foodstuffs. The new situation in the Near East may make it impossible for Palestine to secure the quantities of food which have hitherto been imported. American Jewry can remedy this situation by chartering an American freighter, loading it with food supplies—mostly canned foods —and speeding it to Palestine while navigation between the United States and Palestine is still possible. It now takes two months for a steamer from New York to reach Palestine, but Palestine can still be reached from here. The blockade, which makes it impossible to send food to Nazi-held territories, does not apply to Palestine. It may, however, develop if the Axis powers succeed in blocking the Suez and in securing military control over Syria. Zionist leaders in America should take note and act speedily if they do not wish to see the Yishuv short of food in the most critical days of its existence. IF THE ROPE BREAKS — /VS Camay of Tfa Sj^tH". UAH.C Btrord Sc*il mmmmmm —mm** [PLAIN TALK BEING TOLERANT B 7 A1£H1 Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) A note from Mrs. Elma Levingcr of Columbus. O.. tells mo that we who arc persecuted should be quick to protest against persecution of other people. She has in mind the matter of Jehovah's Witnesses who in the recent months, in various parts of the country, have sulfored a persecution that reminds us of what the Mormons had to take long ago. In particular Mrs. Levinger refers to an incident at Milford. a village near Cincinnati, where the two children of one of Jehovah's Witnesses were suspended from school because they wouldn't salute the flag. This they refused to do in accordance with their religious scruples (They o ',1. ve 1.' tlie letter the first" commandment which tells them that the flag is one of the s that are not to be worshipped. But this was not all. The father of these children who was emi 111 a movie theater lost is ib. The pressure of I ted public opinion compelled owner of the theater to dismiss j him. The persecutinn Jehovah's children have b< 1 n barred from schools in neighboring villages. They applied lor adthey were not ,!. For t'r,' sake of the flag denied the d cratic right of education. Mrs. Levinger thinks Jews u the first to come to the aid of those persecuted. But I think I hear contradictory "No! Let's mind our own W< have troubles of our own and why should we take y more? We are unpopular 1 n our own accent. Why we take upon ourselves the unpopularity of Jehovah's Witnesa .-"' But I don't think we can separirselves from the persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses merely by not noticing it. Bigotry doesn't specialize. This is to say. bigotry never is satisfied by one job of oppression. It will not consider its work finished if and when it has persecuted all of Jehovah's Witnesses out of existence. It is always hunting for new satisfactions for its sadism. After it is through with Jehovah's Witnesses it may take up, let us say. Catholics or fasten new persecutions on Jews. Jehovah's Witnesses are the popular victims at the moment because their refusal to salute the flag provides bigotry with an excuse of patriotism. So bigotry must be hit even when it hurts other people than ourselves. We must stand courageously against it whether it is at the moment persecuting Jehovah's Witnesses or Catholic or Presbyterians or Negroes. Not that Jehovah's Witnesses are themselves the most lovable of people easy to fight for. They are, in fact, themselves a group given to a kind of bigotry. Yet by being shown the way of tolerance and decent respect one may persuade them to forsake th£ir own obnoxiously intolerant man:•.< rs The bigotry of Jehovah's Witnesses is of a kind that hurts other people's feelings. Th from house to house with a portable phonograph on which they play a record that gives out an abusive speech against the Catholic Church. Many a Catholic has hously hurt to listen to this. It is as if an anti-Semite wi to a Jowish home to play a phonograph record of a Cough, lin speech. This would not only be vulgarly discourteous but to the decent respect that is duo one's neighbors. Jehovah's Wit! make themselves most disagn 1 %  times. I don't hold it against them that they are eager to convert Jews. No one may dispute their to try to bring 1 plo over to their way of thinking. Despite that it's so hard to love them one must regard the persecution that has been inflicted upon them all over the country as an alarming symptom. Most of it comes out of their refusal to (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) ABOUT ERSATZ Jacob Richman has just completed a new volume of Jewish stories ... He is the well-known Hebrew scholar and authority on Jewish folk-lore whose "Laughs horn Jewish Lore," is already in its sixth edition Richman sends us this priceless story, as an advance Chanukah gift: A middle-aged German, who thought he had enough of this miserable existence under the Hitler regime, decided to commit suicide He went into a drug store, purchased a large dose of rat poison, and after swallowing it lay down in bed to await death—sweet, "welcome death that would free him from suffering and oppression He waited an hour, but no death came ... He waited two hours, three hours, but there was no sign of it Obviously what he got was not real poison but "ERSATZ" (a substitute) He realized that he would have to find some other means wherewith to end his life So he got out of bed, went to a hardware store, bought a rope, and returning home, hanged himself ... But the rope snapped and he only injured himself slightly For it was not a real rope, but "ERSATZ" There seemed to be no escape from this vale of tears ... But he was determnied. and he had an inspiration—he would denounce Hitler That, he felt, would bring him swift and sure death With keen anticipation he darted from the house, and rushing up to a Storm Trooper, yelled, "Down with Hitler" The Storm Trooper looked at him kindly, and putting a linger to his lips, said: "Sh-sh, not so loud ... If anybody should overhear it, I'll be compelled to arrest you and those dirty dogs don't deserve this service." Yes, sir, the Storm Trooper, too, was not genuine, hut "ERSATZ" Seeing that all his attempts at suicide were futile, the Aryan gave up all thought of self-destruction And, since he was compelled to live, he thought he might as well try to enjoy life ... So he walked into a restaurant and ordered a full-course dinner ... But that killed him outright What he got was "ERSATZ." IS THAT SO? The other day, at the home of Meyer Weisgal, Jacob i man was introduced to Dorothy Thompson Dorothy looked him over and then smiled broadly "Aren't you the man who advised me about 19 years ago to forget all about journalism and get married?" .. America's first lady of journalism had remembered correctly Nineteen years ago when she was travelling to Europe on the same boat with the American delegation to the World Zionist Congress, she asked Mr. Fishman's advice on how to break into newspaperwork The editor of the Jewish Morning Journal told her "Forget it and find yourself a good husband." Dorothy proceeded to London, sold herself to the International News Service as an expert on Zionism and got her first newspaper job to cover the London Zionist Congress of 1921 She married Sinclair Lewis after she had made for herself a reputation as a foreign correspondent. POT-POURRI School children will no longer be required to salute the American flag with outstretched arm like the Nazis do Fingers to the temple will be the official salute from now on And the man responsible for the change is none other than Walter Winchell You might be interested in the fact that the house at 55 East 77th Street. New York, in which the Nazi Consul lives, is owned by Hamilton Fish, Sr., father of the Congressman Charlie Chaplin's final speech in his film "The Great Dictator," is being very much criticized by the reviewers who claim that it is out of character with the rest of the omedy ... So Charlie told us the other day: "If I had to do it all over again, I'd end up the picture the same way even though every critic in the world were opposed to it ... I believe that it was more important to make the speech at the end than to keep the little barber strictly in character" That final speech is the most sublime and strongest indictment of the Nazi regime ever put on the screen We're with you, Charlie. FAIR EXCHANGE Here is a really human story about Albert Einstein • We are indebted to Leonard Lyons for it One of the Princeton neighbors of Professor Einstein has an eight-year-old daughter who made it a practice to visit the famed scientist every afternoon. After many weeks of these daily visits, the girl's mother finally went to see Einstein, and apologized to him for her daughter's constant interruptions of his scientific thought • • "Oh, not at all," Einstein assured her. "I enjoy her visits very much, and we get along well." "Really?" asked the lady. "But what can you and a little eight-year-old gorl have in common?' ... "A great deal," Einstein explained. "I love the jelly beans she brings me —and she loves the way I do her arithmetic lessons." NASTY BUT TRUE The Nazis refer to the New Europe they are going to estao lish after the war as NEUROPA The people living under Herr Hitler's regime will be called NEUROTICS, we presume We don't like the reports of how Willkie campagin managers are intimidating some prominent Jews in small towns to vote for the Republican candidate These high pressure gentlemen insist that it is the duty of the leaders of the Jewish communities to come out publicly for Roosevelt's opponent in order to demonstrate that the Jews are not voting en bloc for (CONTINUED ON PAOE 7) '..

New York City. This committee was called together by the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds to discuss the desirability of, and proposals for. developing a national budgeting procedure. In other words, it would involve the creation of a National Budgeting Committee to assist the local Budget Committee of the Federation in properly evaluating the work and scope of each agency applying for an allocation from the annual fund raised in each community.

I should guess that Jehovah's Witnesses do not suffer as much from this persecution as the flag itself does: they are an intensely religious group that probably feels the exquisite joys of martyrdom. Such a persecution is an indecent affront to the meaning of the flag which intelligent people have regarded as the palladium of American rights. To conscientious Americans it seems that there is something of Hitler already here when for a religious opinion — however misguided — people are being persecuted by economic and social discriminations and by physical assault even. What is being done here to Jehovah's Witnesses would be done in Germany to some unimaginable German who refused to heil Hitler with the approved gesture as he passed by. Certainly he would be thrown out of his job. His children would Morris C. Troper (above), European Chairman of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, shown at La Guardia Field in New York as he was ready to board the Dixie Clipper for Lisbon, Por. tugal, to resume active charge of J.D.C. relief work abroad. Mr. Troper landed in Lisbon on Oct. 21. "The next six months," Mr. Troper said on leaving New York, "will see all of Europe in the grip of unprecedented hardship with Jews suffering most severely of all. I am going to Europe with full knowledge of the frightful conditions existing there, and with the equally discouraging knowledge that we shall not be able to feed all the hungry or pro'ide care for all the sick. But as long as any means remain to us, we shall continue to the best of our abilities to do all we can for the innocent men, women and children who are being decimated by war. "The chief obstacle to bringing effective assistance to Jewish refugee! and war victims is the lack of adequate funds. Vfe have available perhaps a third of the minimum needed for the remaining two and a half months of the year. This sum can only be increased if Jews of America will contribute generously to the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Needs." be made to share his ignominy. Of course, he would also go to a concentration camp to which, thank goodness, we haven't come m America and. please God, we never will. It is rather frightening to see some of the Hitler processes in operation here even while we are spending billions to defend ourBlves against Hitler. What makes it especially alarming is the fact that among the participants in the persecution are school teachers who in baccalaureate orations are called the keepers of democracy. They are participants in this persecution since they do not resist the pressure of bigotry when it demands the punishment of school children who are faithful to the religious teaching their fathers gave. them. Instead, the teachers go with the mob. But Jehovah's Witnesses should themselves mend their ways. Certainly Jehovah can not be pleased to see his witnesses testifying against the people of another church and grievously hurting them. I imagine that the just Jehovah may well ask. "Can these be my true witnesses?" I suggest that Jehovah's Witnesses set aside a day of atonement on which to crack up all their pain-giving records and smash up their phonagraphs. Then they will become authentic witnesses for Jehovah. INSURED SAVINGS MORTGAGE LOANS msmt JAYIMJ %  ORTIACI LOAfS ORDE FEDERAL snvincs pno Loan assocmTion OF mmmi 45 H. K.

WHAT YOUR LEADERS
HAVE TO SAY
New York. N. Y.. Oct. 27Over 100 Jewish leaders of phil-

will vote for Wendell Willkie in the forthcoming election ac-
cording to the survey just completed by Frederick F. Green-
man. Vice-Chairman of the Eastern Division of the Republican
National Committee.
This survey was carried on in the following way: Mr
Greenman received from Jewish organizations a list of 200
leaders in religious, philanthropic and communal activities
throughout the country but without any reference to their
political affiliation. He then wrote a letter to each of these
leaders in which he said substantially that he did not know
whether they were disposed to vote for Willkie or not. but if
they were, would they please send him a one paragraph en-
dorsement of Willkie for President.

of Cleveland, Ohio. Joint Chairman of the United Jewish Ap-
peal and United Palestine Appeal. In April of this year, before
the Democratic Convention was held, he wrote to the Cleve-
land Plain Dealer and stated his opposition to a third term for
Roosevelt. He had supported Roosevelt in 1932 and 1936 and
is still an admirer of his. After Roosevelt was nominated, the
Cleveland Plain Dealer asked Rabbi Silver whether he was
still of the same opinion. Rabbi Silver then, on August 6th,
1940. wrote his now famous letter to the Cleveland Plain Deal-
er in which he expressed his opposition to the third term and
endorsed Willkie as follows:
"The 'no-third-term' tradition has been vindicated by a
century and a half of American experience, and it is particu-
larly important in these days, when the indispensable-one-man-
rule is exalted in so many parts of the world at the expense of
the democratic faith in laws and institutions rather than in
persons, that it should not be repudiated."

VOLUME 13 NUMBER 44
THE INVASION OF GREECE
The Axis determination to penetrate into the Near East has
been demonstrated now by Italy's war declaration against
Greece with the obvious intention of carrying the war into
Turkey with a view not only to reaching the Suez Canal, but
also the rich oil fields of Iraq.
Thus, on the twenty-second anniversary of the Balfour de-
claration this week, Palestine finds itself closer and closer to
the actual war field. Hitehrto plavina a passive role in the
war, Palestine may become soon an active war zone, espe-
cially if Htiler secures air and naval bases in Syria under
the newly-signed Hitler-Petain agreement of "cooperation."
News reaching the United States from Palestine indicates
that the Yishuv is prepared for anything that may happen.
There is, however, one concern to which timely attention of
American Jewry should be drawn. This is the possible short-
age of certain foodstuffs that may develop in Palestine should
the Syrian frontier be completely closed and should warfare
in Egypt reach serious proportions.
Palestine has always depended on import, especially in
bread, sugar and other foodstuffs. The new situation in the
Near East may make it impossible for Palestine to secure the
quantities of food which have hitherto been imported. Ameri-
can Jewry can remedy this situation by chartering an American
freighter, loading it with food suppliesmostly canned foods
and speeding it to Palestine while navigation between the
United States and Palestine is still possible. It now takes two
months for a steamer from New York to reach Palestine, but
Palestine can still be reached from here.
The blockade, which makes it impossible to send food to
Nazi-held territories, does not apply to Palestine. It may, how-
ever, develop if the Axis powers succeed in blocking the Suez
and in securing military control over Syria. Zionist leaders in
America should take note and act speedily if they do not wish
to see the Yishuv short of food in the most critical days of its
existence.

TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE
(By PHINEAS J. BIRON)
A note from Mrs. Elma Lev-
ingcr of Columbus. O.. tells mo
that we who arc persecuted
should be quick to protest
against persecution of other peo-
ple.
She has in mind the matter of
Jehovah's Witnesses who in the
recent months, in various parts
of the country, have sulfored a
persecution that reminds us of
what the Mormons had to take
long ago.
In particular Mrs. Levinger re-
fers to an incident at Milford.
a village near Cincinnati, where
the two children of one of Je-
hovah's Witnesses were suspend-
ed from school because they
wouldn't salute the flag. This
they refused to do in accordance
with their religious scruples
(They o ',1. ve 1.' tlie letter the
first" commandment which tells
them that the flag is one of the
s that are not to be wor-
shipped.
But this was not all. The fath-
er of these children who was em-
i 111 a movie theater lost
is ib. The pressure of I
ted public opinion compelled
owner of the theater to dismiss j
him.
The persecutinn Je-
hovah's children have b< 1 n bar-
red from schools in neighboring
villages. They applied lor ad-
they were not
,!. For t'r,' sake of the flag
denied the d
cratic right of education.
Mrs. Levinger thinks Jews
u the first to come
to the aid of those persecuted.
But I think I hear contradictory
"No! Let's mind our own
W< have troubles of
our own and why should we take
y more? We are unpopular
1 n our own accent. Why
. we take upon ourselves
the unpopularity of Jeho-
vah's Witnesa .-"'
But I don't think we can separ-
irselves from the persecu-
tion of Jehovah's Witnesses mere-
ly by not noticing it. Bigotry
doesn't specialize. This is to
say. bigotry never is satisfied by
one job of oppression. It will
not consider its work finished if
and when it has persecuted all
of Jehovah's Witnesses out of ex-
istence. It is always hunting for
new satisfactions for its sadism.
After it is through with Jehovah's
Witnesses it may take up, let us
say. Catholics or fasten new per-
secutions on Jews.
Jehovah's Witnesses are the
popular victims at the moment
because their refusal to salute the
flag provides bigotry with an ex-
cuse of patriotism.
So bigotry must be hit even
when it hurts other people than
ourselves. We must stand cour-
ageously against it whether it is
at the moment persecuting Je-
hovah's Witnesses or Catholic or
Presbyterians or Negroes.
Not that Jehovah's Witnesses
are themselves the most lovable
of people easy to fight for. They
are, in fact, themselves a group
given to a kind of bigotry. Yet
by being shown the way of toler-
ance and decent respect one may
persuade them to forsake thir
own obnoxiously intolerant man-
:.< rs
The bigotry of Jehovah's Wit-
nesses is of a kind that hurts
other people's feelings. Th
from house to house with a port-
able phonograph on which they
play a record that gives out an
abusive speech against the Cath-
olic Church. Many a Catholic
has h- ously hurt to listen
to this.
It is as if an anti-Semite wi
to a Jowish home to play
a phonograph record of a Cough,
lin speech. This would not only
be vulgarly discourteous but
to the decent re-
spect that is duo one's neighbors.
Jehovah's Wit! make
themselves most disagn 1
times.
I don't hold it against them
that they are eager to convert
Jews. No one may dispute their
to try to bring 1
plo over to their way of thinking.
Despite that it's so hard to love
them one must regard the perse-
cution that has been inflicted up-
on them all over the country as
an alarming symptom. Most of
it comes out of their refusal to

ABOUT ERSATZ
Jacob Richman has just completed a new volume of Jewish
stories ... He is the well-known Hebrew scholar and authority
on Jewish folk-lore whose "Laughs horn Jewish Lore," is already
in its sixth edition Richman sends us this priceless story,
as an advance Chanukah gift: A middle-aged German, who
thought he had enough of this miserable existence under the
Hitler regime, decided to commit suicide He went into a
drug store, purchased a large dose of rat poison, and after swal-
lowing it lay down in bed to await deathsweet, "welcome
death that would free him from suffering and oppression .
He waited an hour, but no death came ... He waited two
hours, three hours, but there was no sign of it Obviously
what he got was not real poison but "ERSATZ" (a substitute)
He realized that he would have to find some other means
wherewith to end his life So he got out of bed, went to a
hardware store, bought a rope, and returning home, hanged
himself ... But the rope snapped and he only injured him-
self slightly For it was not a real rope, but "ERSATZ" .
There seemed to be no escape from this vale of tears ... But
he was determnied. and he had an inspirationhe would de-
nounce Hitler That, he felt, would bring him swift and sure
death With keen anticipation he darted from the house,
and rushing up to a Storm Trooper, yelled, "Down with Hitler"
. The Storm Trooper looked at him kindly, and putting a lin-
ger to his lips, said: "Sh-sh, not so loud ... If anybody should
overhear it, I'll be compelled to arrest you and those dirty dogs
don't deserve this service." Yes, sir, the Storm Trooper,
too, was not genuine, hut "ERSATZ" Seeing that all his
attempts at suicide were futile, the Aryan gave up all thought
of self-destruction And, since he was compelled to live, he
thought he might as well try to enjoy life ... So he walked
into a restaurant and ordered a full-course dinner ... But that
killed him outright What he got was "ERSATZ."
IS THAT SO?
The other day, at the home of Meyer Weisgal, Jacob i
man was introduced to Dorothy Thompson Dorothy looked
him over and then smiled broadly "Aren't you the man
who advised me about 19 years ago to forget all about journal-
ism and get married?" .. America's first lady of journalism had
remembered correctly Nineteen years ago when she was
travelling to Europe on the same boat with the American dele-
gation to the World Zionist Congress, she asked Mr. Fishman's
advice on how to break into newspaperwork The editor of
the Jewish Morning Journal told her "Forget it and find
yourself a good husband." Dorothy proceeded to London,
sold herself to the International News Service as an expert on
Zionism and got her first newspaper job to cover the London
Zionist Congress of 1921 She married Sinclair Lewis after
she had made for herself a reputation as a foreign corres-
pondent.
POT-POURRI
School children will no longer be required to salute the
American flag with outstretched arm like the Nazis do .
Fingers to the temple will be the official salute from now on
. And the man responsible for the change is none other than
Walter Winchell You might be interested in the fact that
the house at 55 East 77th Street. New York, in which the Nazi
Consul lives, is owned by Hamilton Fish, Sr., father of the Con-
gressman Charlie Chaplin's final speech in his film "The
Great Dictator," is being very much criticized by the reviewers
who claim that it is out of character with the rest of the omedy
... So Charlie told us the other day: "If I had to do it all over
again, I'd end up the picture the same way even though every
critic in the world were opposed to it ... I believe that it was
more important to make the speech at the end than to keep the
little barber strictly in character" That final speech is the
most sublime and strongest indictment of the Nazi regime ever
put on the screen We're with you, Charlie.
FAIR EXCHANGE
Here is a really human story about Albert Einstein We
are indebted to Leonard Lyons for it One of the Princeton
neighbors of Professor Einstein has an eight-year-old daughter
who made it a practice to visit the famed scientist every after-
noon. After many weeks of these daily visits, the girl's mother
finally went to see Einstein, and apologized to him for her
daughter's constant interruptions of his scientific thought
"Oh, not at all," Einstein assured her. "I enjoy her visits very
much, and we get along well." "Really?" asked the lady.
"But what can you and a little eight-year-old gorl have in com-
mon?' ... "A great deal," Einstein explained. "I love the jelly
beans she brings me and she loves the way I do her arith-
metic lessons."
NASTY BUT TRUE
The Nazis refer to the New Europe they are going to estao
lish after the war as NEUROPA The people living under
Herr Hitler's regime will be called NEUROTICS, we presume
. We don't like the reports of how Willkie campagin man-
agers are intimidating some prominent Jews in small towns to
vote for the Republican candidate These high pressure
gentlemen insist that it is the duty of the leaders of the Jewish
communities to come out publicly for Roosevelt's opponent in
order to demonstrate that the Jews are not voting en bloc for

salute the flag, in accordance
with their religious principles or
scruples.
I should guess that Jehovah's
Witnesses do not suffer as much
from this persecution as the flag
itself does: they are an intensely
religious group that probably
feels the exquisite joys of mar-
tyrdom.
Such a persecution is an in-
decent affront to the meaning of
the flag which intelligent people
have regarded as the palladium
of American rights. To consci-
entious Americans it seems that
there is something of Hitler al-
ready here when for a religious
opinion however misguided
people are being persecuted by
economic and social discrimina-
tions and by physical assault
even.
What is being done here to
Jehovah's Witnesses would be
done in Germany to some unim-
aginable German who refused to
heil Hitler with the approved
gesture as he passed by. Cer-
tainly he would be thrown out
of his job. His children would
Morris C. Troper (above), Euro-
pean Chairman of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, shown at La Guardia Field in
New York as he was ready to board
the Dixie Clipper for Lisbon, Por.
tugal, to resume active charge of
J.D.C. relief work abroad. Mr.
Troper landed in Lisbon on Oct. 21.
"The next six months," Mr.
Troper said on leaving New York,
"will see all of Europe in the grip
of unprecedented hardship with
Jews suffering most severely of all.
I am going to Europe with full
knowledge of the frightful condi-
tions existing there, and with the
equally discouraging knowledge that
we shall not be able to feed all the
hungry or pro'ide care for all the
sick. But as long as any means re-
main to us, we shall continue to the
best of our abilities to do all we
can for the innocent men, women
and children who are being deci-
mated by war.
"The chief obstacle to bringing
effective assistance to Jewish refu-
gee! and war victims is the lack of
adequate funds. Vfe have available
perhaps a third of the minimum
needed for the remaining two and
a half months of the year. This sum
can only be increased if Jews of
America will contribute generously
to the United Jewish Appeal for
Refugees and Overseas Needs."
be made to share his ignominy.
Of course, he would also go to a
concentration camp to which,
thank goodness, we haven't come
m America and. please God, we
never will.
It is rather frightening to see
some of the Hitler processes in
operation here even while we are
spending billions to defend our-
Blves against Hitler. What makes
it especially alarming is the fact
that among the participants in
the persecution are school teach-
ers who in baccalaureate orations
are called the keepers of demo-
cracy. They are participants in
this persecution since they do not
resist the pressure of bigotry
when it demands the punishment
of school children who are faith-
ful to the religious teaching their
fathers gave. them. Instead, the
teachers go with the mob.
But Jehovah's Witnesses should
themselves mend their ways. Cer-
tainly Jehovah can not be pleased
to see his witnesses testifying
against the people of another
church and grievously hurting
them. I imagine that the just
Jehovah may well ask. "Can
these be my true witnesses?"
I suggest that Jehovah's Wit-
nesses set aside a day of atone-
ment on which to crack up all
their pain-giving records and
smash up their phonagraphs.
Then they will become authentic
witnesses for Jehovah.
