JEWS IN ITALY
MAKE SOCIAL AND
London (WNS)Shortly after
the issuance of a decree by the
Badoglio government abolishing
all anti-Jewish laws and restric-

president of the Union of Ital-
ion Jews, entered into negotia-
tions with high government of-
licials in Rome for the release of
all Jews interned in Italian
camps, it was reported here this
week from Geneva.
With the abolition of the anti-
Jewish laws, the approximately
40,000 Italian Jews face the prob-
lem of re-establishing themselves
in the enterprises from which
they were ousted and in the pro-
fessions from which they had
been barred. Many of them also
face the problem of regaining
possessions of the real estate
which the Mussolini regime con-
fiscated and then transferred to
the Institute for Administration
and Liquidation of Immovable
Property which issued bonds in
payment that were negotiable
among Jews only.
The Geneva report also stated
that Jewish leaders in Italy were
conferring with the Ministry of
Finance in Rome on plans to ef-
fect the transfer of the "Aryan-
ized" property to the Jewish
owners and the return of the
"liquidated" Jewish real estate to
the holders of the bonds issued

London (WNS)Dr. Judah L.
Magnes. president of the Hebrew
l University in Palestine, has met
with a group of Arab leaders to
discuss the contemplated forma-
tion of a federation of Arab
States, it was disclosed here by
well informed circles. The same

leaders had been boasting that
Dr. Magnes' position was support-

' with the American Hadassah or-

obstacle to the plan of forming
a confederation of Arab States."
He told a press conference that
Arab leaders were in "general
agreement that the first essen-
tial" was to "re-unite" Palestine,
Transjordan and Lebanon in a
greater Syria. Declaring that the
"Jewish problem in Palestine"
and the French mandate in Syria
were obstacles "which must first
be settled by agreement with
the United Nations," he said that
Arab leaders were looking for-
ward to a "Syria as existed be-
fore the first World War."
Prior to the first World War,
Palestine was a part of Svria.
In 1916 Great Britain and France
agreed, under the Sykes-Picot
Treaty, to partition Syria. The
partition was effected in 1918
when British troops occupied

WHERE DOES INTOLERANCE STOP?
Is a Jew "competent" to teach in the school
system of Dade County?
We do not ask this question facetiously.
We do not ask it academically.
We ask it in deadly, practical earnest, here
We ask it of the Board of Public Instruc-
tion of Dade County. The decision is in its
The Board of Public Instruction has rend-
ered a preliminary judgment that Edward O.
Schweitzer, a conscientious objector to war. is
"incompetent" to teach in the Dade county
school system, although he makes no effort
to indoctrinate his students and keeps his
convictions strictly to himself. It has filed
this charge against Mr. Schweitzer and will
sit in final judgment in a public hearing sched-
uled for Aug. 11.
The Board is acting under a section of the
Florida law which, in defining the qualifica-
tions of school teachers, says they "... must
embrace every opportunity to inculcate, by
precept and example, the principles of truth,
honesty and patriotism and the practice of
every Christian virttue." Here is a verbatim
restatement of this article of the Florida law:
-TIDBiTS FROM EVERYWHERE-
will defend to the death your right to say it.
Civil and religious rights cannot be doled
out on a selective basis. Either the dike
against tyranny holds in every segment or it
crumbles in its totality. Once given a taste
of triumph, tyranny is insatiable.
Again we ask the school board: Is a lew
or any other man or woman not of the
Christian persuasion"competent" to teach in
the Dade County School system? Are these
persons safe in their jobs?
We shall have our answer on Aug. 11 when
the decision is made in the case of Mr.
Schweitzer. For the issues are strictly an-
We hope with fervor and deep passion
that the answer will be a ringing vindication
of the principles of religious and civil liberty

under which it now fares forth to re-establish
these same freedoms in lands that have lost

faithfully and earnestly for the advance-
ment of the pupils in their studies, de-
portment and morals, and embrace every

example, the principles of truth, honesty
and patriotism and the practice of every
Now, if a teacher who in the privacy of his
own conscience does not believe in war is
"incompetent" to inculcate the principles of
patriotism, what is the position of a teacher
who in the privacy of his own conscience does
not accept the Christian religion, what is his
position in respect to the teaching of the
"Christian virtues?" Is he not equally "in-
competent?" By every rule of logic and con-
sistency, he must be declared so.
This should lead the school board to a pain-
fully sober considerattion of what it would do
to the fabric of American civil and religious
liberties if it decided on Aug. 11 to sustain the
charges against Mr. Schweitzer and dismiss
him from his job. It would be setting a prec-
edent which would open the way to limitless
abuses. The absurdity of such a decision
would be overshadowed only by the terrible
dangers inherent in it.
The 10 Methodist Ministers who wrote the
board yesterday in defense of Mr. Schweitzer's
right to hold his own views grasped the im-
plications clearly. After reciting the language
of the school code above referred to, they de-
clared: "In view of the very great danger in
singling out particular words from a code of
qualifications, applying a certain selected
definition to them, and enforcing it on the
basis of such selected definition, we call your
attention to the other words of the same code
and the grave injustice that could result from
such a procedure."
All this suggests the question: Where does
The answer is: It doesn't stop.
The answer is: Freedom and security are

as long as the rights of any other man are un-
safe. Voltaire. understood this when he said:

THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY
The wheels of fate grind blindly and, at
times, mercifully. For who would have be-
lieved in 1880 when Herman Schapira, Jew-
ish professor of mathematics at the Univer-
sity of Heidelberg, first visioned the idea of a
Hebrew University in Palestine, that some day
Jewish scholars of Germany would have to
find shelter in Palestine and intellectual com-
fort within the walls of a Hebrew University
Or, who could have imagined in 1918, in
the midst of the roar of battle of the first
I World War, when Dr. Chaim Weizmann laid
the foundation for the bastion of knowledge
in Jerusalem, that twenty-five years hence the
University would celebrate its anniversary in
the midst of a global catastrophe that would
threaten the very existence of our people
throughout the world? Only a dyed-in-the-
wool skeptic could have believed on that glo-
rious day of April 1, 1925, when Lord Balfour
-oificially opened the doors of the Hebrew Uni-
versity, that some day the Yishuv would have
to fight a British White Paper negating the very
principles of the Balfour Declaration.
Yet these are the stark facts. The Yishuv
which has been built by Jewish hands, blood
and sweat is living through one of its most
difficult periods. And the walls of the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem are trembling from the
impact of the Jewish tragedy throughout the
JEWS OF ITALY REIOICE
Almost five years to the month that Mus-
solini followed his Axis partner down the path
to anti-Semitism, the official Italian news
agency Stefani reported that Marshal Badoglio
had issued a decree in Rome abrogating all
racial legislation and restoring citizenship to
More than any other act, this annulment of
the anti-Jewish laws by one of the three major
Axis partners is an indication of how near to
destruction is Hitler's house of cards. For it
was on anti-Semitism that the Nazis and their
satellites built their empire.
The Jews of Italy are rejoicing this week,
and well they might. But almost equally elat-
ed are the bulk of the Italian people. Anti-
Semitism was to them an undesirable alien
doctrine and they indicated quite clearly that
they wanted no part of it.

THE CAPITAL LETTER
WITH THE JEWS^IN SPORTS

The indictment of the eight American citizens
who have been broadcasting from the Axis coun-
tries is a blow at anti-Semitism, not because the
legal step is of any immediate significance, but be-
cause the action stigmatizes the eight Axis propa-
gandists as traitors.
Ezra Pound, Robert H. Best, Douglas Chandler.
Edward L. Delaney, Constance Drexel. lane An-
derson, and Max Otto Koischwitz were known in
the United States for their anti-Jewish sentiments.
The Axis radio propaganda is directed at dis-
contented minorities, at political demagogues; it
generates suspicions and rumors and grafts them
upon some negligible fragment of fact to give them
And most of this is centered about the responsi-
bility and ignominy of the Jew.
Robert Best, a rather bad American journalist, is
the most violent of the group. His language is not
pretty, but then all of the eight are addicted to the
sore of name-calling for which any American moth-
er would prescribe soap and water. He aspires to
be an "analyst" rather than a "news" broadcaster,
and as such wanders at will through the catalogue
of hate, race prejudice and scorn for the democ-
racies. Here's a typical piece:
"Friends, fellow Christocrats. fellow crusaders
for civilization and fellow Americans all. The world
is divided today into two camps; on the one side
Jewish Bolshevism and Jewed-up plutocracy. On the
other the forces of a new and better order. Why,
therefore, why. you must ask yourselves and your
acquaintances, why are Britain and America in
the wrong camp? .
"Both America and Great Britain are today in-
volved in a war against the interests of all real
Americans and all real Britons and the reasons for
this can be found in a big word composed of only
three letters, namely Jew, J-e-w, Jew. J-e-w, Jew.
The bombing of Rome is. of course, a Jewish
conspiracy. It was a Jewish and Episcopalian big-
wia plot to "destroy as many as possible oi fcu-
rope's Catholic. Lutheran, Orthodox. Presbyterian.
Baptist and Methodist churches." He attributes
even the cracking of the Liberty Bell in 1835 to the
power and influence of the Jews.
Douglas Chandler, a musical and literary du-
letante, was so virulent in his anti-Semitism that in
1940 the Yugoslav government withdrew a tempor-
ary residence permit it had issued him. He was
buled as "Paul Revere" in Germany and, intro-
duced with the strains of Yankee Doodle, ha-
rangued on the old theme of "international Jewry.
He would have Americans believe:
"The First World War and America s Civil war
bore the same unmistakable thumb-print. At the
elbow of each member of the peace commission
stood a Jew with or without protective coloring.
Ezra Pound, supposedly embittered by the lack
of popular appreciation of his poetry here and in
Enqland. has not lived in this country since 1920
He broadcasts from Rome and his nastiness has not
stopped with the fall of Mussolini.
Fred W. Kaltenbach. a former teacher in the
United States, was known for his anti-Semitism even
before he began his propaganda broadcaste early
in 1941, addressing his remarks usually to Dear
Harry." and other mythical Iowa friends He pre-
sumably avoids emotional tangents and vituper-
ative outbursts. He adopts instead a simple, direct
and "reasonable" speech. mnv;OG
He says that the press and radio and movies
the old myth that has been disproved time after time
are owned by the Jews. .
"The consummation of the Jewish plan to rule he
world requires first demoralization of the Chmhan
attitude toward life," he says, decrying anti-Nazi
^Neither Jane Anderson or Constance Drexel have
been heard in recent months. The latter was con-
cerned with telling listeners of Germany s cultural
accomplishments; the former was billed as a fam-
ous Catholic Orator."
Edward Leo Delaney. a small-time ^wajvto-
lently anti-Semitic even while in the United States.
His acquaintances regarded it as an obsessior.
The Nazis used his services as E. D. Ward until
IU0 K-Max Oscar Koischwitz-is still on the air.
A former instructor at Columbia University^ and
Hunter College, he attempts to ridicule the democ-
racies with a pseudo-humorous dialogue called
"Frifz and Freddy." He. too., talks of "Roosevelt
^When^rmany and Italy fall, so do these trait-
ors. Meanwhile, the United States of America has
disowned them. Their own, their native land says.
"We're ashamed of you.
Norbert Heller, an official of the once famous
Hakoah Swimming Club of Vienna has been in
Maracaibo, Venezuela for some time now since he
escaped from the Nazis. Heller has gone on record
to say that although the Nazis have killed, crippled
or imprisoned many of its members, they have not
been able to disorganize the spirit of that erstwhile
world famous Jewish athletic organization.
Nearly 90 percent of the 600 Jewish men and
women athletes who belonged to the club when
Hitler invaded Austria have escaped to friendly
nations, Heller said. Almost all are in allied armed
forces or doing war work, but they have kept in
touch with each other through a bulletin published
weekly in London. Some of the escapes have been
spectacular. One youth now fighting with the British
in the Middle East swam the Danube to Czecko-
Slovakia, then walked by night to the Mediteran-
nean. One girl hid behind the back seat cushion
of a taxi, went through to Luxembourg and into
France. The club's champion skier skied over the
Alps. Caught three times and sent back, he got
into Switzerland the fourth time and was interned
there. He finally succeeded in reaching the United
States and is now an Instructor in the Army.
We first met many members of this gallant band
in Tel Aviv, Palestine, when we went abroad as
press representative with the first American Mac-
cabee team in 1932. We toured Europe on a junket
tour along with Harold Kramer, Lou Abelson, and
Jesse Siegal. the aquatic stars of the U. S. A. team
that year and many members of the Hakoah swim-
ming club were in our party. But the trip was made
long before the chaotic war conditions of today pre-
vail. Much of the fun on that trip we owe to the
members of the club. No wonder then that we re-
joice at Norbert Heller's words about the safety
of most of the 600 members. We sincerely hope that
somedayperhaps at the very next Maccabiad
we will meet many of our former friends today
among the most gallant band of athletes in the

In the provinces where the play has travelled, the

The brighter side of the world Jewish picture
qrows larger. This week Stefani. the official Italian
news agency, reported that a decree has been is-
sued in Rome cancelling the anti-Jewish laws and
restoring Jews to Italian citizenship.
Following the announcement to this effect by the
Badoglio regime, it was reported that Vittono Va-
lobra. president of the Union of Italian Jewish Com-
munities conferred with high government officials
on the released of interned Polish, German and
stateless Jews. One unofficial report had it that
Mussolini, shortly before his ousting, moved 16.00U
Jews from labor camps in southern Italy to the
northern part of the country to prevent their libera-
tion by invading armies.
The Jewish population of Italy, estimated at some
40 000. now face the task of rehabilitating them-
selves. This will be a difficult job for many. It is
estimated that at least three-fourths of them lost
their means of livelihood as a result of the anu-
This rehabilitation, difficult as It may be, will be
lightened by the fact that the Italian people have
never had any sympathy with the anti-Jewish re-
The Milan newspaper, Corriere della Sera, this
week published an editorial demanding that the
government call back to Italy the well known Jew-
ish scientist. Dr. Angelo Piero Sereni, who fled the
country after the introduction of the racial laws.
Secretary of State Cordell Hull this week, in a
letter to the Jewish Labor Committee, declared that
the question of the restoration of the Cremieux de-
cree is now receiving "careful study" by the French
Committee of National Liberation. Mr. Hull put the
blame for the abrogation of the decree on the
French commanders. When they told the American
military commanders, he said, that there would be
trouble with the Arabs unless the decree was abro-
qated. the American military officers were forced to
be guided by their judgment, particularly in view
of the fact that the military situation itself was acute
at the time. The sittuation, however, says the Secre-
tary, is now changed and Mr. Hull is confident that
the French Committee of Liberation fully under-
stands the American attitude in the matter.
In a statement in a Jerusalem newspaper this
week, David Ben-Gurion of the Jewish Agency in
Jerusalem, wrote that "tremendous quantities of
water sufficient to irrigate hundreds of thousands
of dunams which could support 5,000,000 people
would be made available if the plans of the Amer-
ican engineers were carried out." The plan he re-
ferred to provides for the digging of a channel be-
tween the Dead Sea and the Jordan River and
utilizing the "falls" between these two positions
for electric power and for irrigation.
Evil too has its beneficent sideeven if that is
only to be found in the reaction to it. According to
accounts in the Swedish press, the antagonism be-
tween Poles and Jews in Poland has been virtually
eliminated as a result of the Nazi persecution of
both elements. Poles, it is reported, smuggled food,
clothing and underground papers into the Warsaw
ghetto before it was destroyed.
In brief, the plan might be compared to the TVA
in America. Such a plan, if feasible, might indeed
be the deciding point in the future of Palestine. It
might conceivably strongly affect the fate of Pales-
tine at the peace table. If the nations can be con-
vinced that this plan would in fact enable Palestme
to absorb a population of five million, the Jews
would have a strong talking point and the force
of the Arab argumentwhatever it may bewould
be greatly diminished.
The New York Times this week carried a story
from the Middle East declaring that the Jews of
Palestine propose to meet the issue raised by the
Arabs with the use of force. In brief, the Jews were
prepared to fight it out with the Arabs. Manifestly,
this story aroused considerable excitement in Jew-
ish circles. Moshe Shertok, chief of the political de-
partment of the Jewish Agency, declared in Cairo
that: "Nothing is further from the thoughts of the
Jews than to try to force the issue at all so long as
the war lasts provided no adverse commitments
are taken in the meantimeor of ever leaving on
their own initiative the path of political negotia-
tions in exchange for direct action. At the same
time, realism compels the conclusion that it would
be wrong to consider the Jews incapable of deeds
of despair if driven to extremes of exasperation by
a decision to persevere in what is to them a cruelly
unjust policy." In other words, Mr. Shertok seems
to be saying, "We don't want to fight, but if neces-
sary, we will."
