protest cited among other anti-

of Salta, a Jewish theatrical com-

propaganda, they said, led to such
outrages and seriously alarmed
the Jewish community in the
Last Aug. 4 the Minister of the
Interior publicly instructed the
Federal Commissioners in all
provinces to forbid publication by
newspapers of anything that
might "wound or mortify" any
section of the Argentine popula-
tion by attacks upon its "nation-
ality of origin, religion, beliefs or
customs." These instructions
have remained a dead letter, the
New York Times correspondent
cables from Buenos Aires. Even
in Bueno Aires nationalistic pa-
pers continue to heap abuse upon
Jews. Indeed, whatever repres-
sive measures have been applied
have been taken against Jewish
newspapers, not those that attack
the Jews, the correspondent adds.

Geneva, (JTA)The Jewish

which acted as the central body
for all the Jews in occupied Pol-

German authorities, it is learned
here this week. All members of

A Jew who succeeded in es-

An article in the Stockholm

city council voiced doubts con-
cerning the advisability of the
proposed legislation. The Gote-

article, believe that some kind of
law is necessary, but "question
the advisability of introducing
laws calculated to give special
privileges to a strictly limited
i section of the community." Sim-
ilar sentiments were voiced re-
; cently by the Malme county
The Commissioner of the Swed-
ish State Police, Niles Swenson,-
has also expressed opposition to
the proposed measure, stating
that a law against dissemination
of racial propaganda was desir-
able, but would lead to a "real
racial and religious problem, es-
pecially as far as the Jews are
Proponents of the legislation
have declared that it is necessary
as a means of checking the in-
creased anti-Semitic activity here,
led by the small but vociferous
Swedish Nazi party. Anti-Jew-
ish propaganda reached a new
height with the arrival of thou-
sands of Jews who fled German
persecution in Denmark.

SAYS REFUGEE IS
London. (JTA)Sir Herbert
Emerson, League of Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees, this
week made public a report which
he has submitted to the League,
in which he emphasizes that the
repatriation of refugees now in
the Allied countries may prove to
be "one of the least tractable of
the many problems" which will
follow the cessation of hostilities.
Sir Herbert points out that few
refugees will be inclined to re-
turn to their homeland unless
given assurances that they wilL
be unmolested there. Since, he
adds, "compulsory repatriation
seems out of the question, this is
likely to prove the least tractable
of many problems."
The position of refugees after
the war is also discussed in sev-
eral articles appearing in the
British press on the occasion of
the first anniversary of the Unit-
ed Nations Declaration on Atroc-
ities, which was issued on De-

WOULD YOU ADD A
BURDEN TO SORROW?
There are enough trials for those bereft to
stand, without having added to their sorrow the
burden of choosing a space to lay the beloved
At the time of bereavement the sufferers are
in no fit condition to choose wisely. It is unjust
and inconsiderate to leave that task to them.
Since you cherish and strive to care for your
loved ones while you live, you owe to yourself,
and to them, the protection from such a trial
added to their sorrow.
Before necessity, the choosing of a lot can
be participated in by the entire family, and the
performance of this duty be a pleasant one.

THE PEOPLE SPEAK
Agitation to effectuate the rescue of the Jews in Europe, to
cause Britain to abrogate the White Paper closing immigration
of Jews to Palestine and to pass legislation by our law-making
bodies to outlaw anti-Semitism is gaining momentum daily.
Congress is besieged with telegrams, mail and personal
visits from individuals and representatives of organizations and
committees, all pleading for action for their respective urgent
Organizations including Federation and welfare funds, civic,
social, religious, Zionistic, throughout the country, each in their
locality, are holding mass meetings and passing resolutions,
evidencing the mass sentiment of sympathy for and support of
these all important measures.
Just as it appeared that the House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee would submit a favorable report on the Baldwin-Rogers res-
olution caling for executive establishment of a special com-
mission to save the Jews in Europe, a dissonant tone was
thrown into the proceedings by the disclosures of the secret tes-
timony of Breckinridge Long. Assistant Secretary of State.
The gist of Mr. Long's testimony was that the Baldwin Rog-
ers resolution, as framed by its proponents, was in conflict with
a secret proposal adopted at the Bermuda conference and that
the formation of the proposed commission would duplicate the
work of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees which,
according to Mr. Long, has the plenary authority to take such
isures as "may be necessary to preserve, maintain and trans-
port displaced persons from areas where their lives and lib-
erty are in danger on account of their race, religion, or political
We are not inclined to argue the issue with the State De-
par: it :.: whose views Mr. Long represents. However, what

I Dr. C^oebbels from Berlin and his#atellites in our own coun-
try, can tear our country apart and create on this side of the At-
lantic a balKamzation of the United States with all its attendant
discords and civil wars. There was no such organized power
and momentum at the time our Constitutional Fathers met. There
was no such gravity in past years as there is now.
To blink the existence of this new, corrosive and destructive
force for national disintegration is to be blind to emerqent social
"Under such circumstances, a people resolved not to permit
themselves to be destroyed must find the way to cope with this
force Education has its place but educaUon is no more the
complete answer to that problem than it is to any other problem
Over and above our school system, we still have legislative
chambers, courts, police departments, military forces In short
we do not leave everything to the gradual, the painfully slow
process of education. There is no more reason why we should
leave this destructive power free and unopposed except bv the
opposition of gradual enlightenment."
Along this line is the Lynch Bill, now pending in the United
States Congress, making it a misdemeanor to send through the
mail any literature inciting hatred of any race, group or relia-
ious denomination. *
Zionists throughout are organizing emergency committees
and their ranks are being increased by vast numbers with in-
numerable institutions affiliating.
Individuals, Jews and non-Jews are organizing in Greater
Miami and announcements will be soon forthcoming of their
plans and activities, through which they will express the senti-
ments of the people of our community on these subjects.
"God's help to us has been great in this year of march to-
ward worldwide liberty. In brotherhood with warriors of other
United Nations our gallant men have won victories, have freed
our homes from fear, have made tyranny tremble and have laid
the foundation for freedom of life in a world which wil be free "

Who is the gentleman, a vice-president of one of the big
department stores in New York, who has been selected by a
Jewish organization to proceed to Turkey to check whether
Turkish authorities prevent Jewish refugees from passing
through the country in transit to Palestine? The State De-
partment, which maintains that Turkey is not returning any
Jewish refugees who cross its frontiers from the Balkan coun-
tries, has given this man the right to go to Turkey and make
his own investigation and return with a report to this coun-
try .. Those who criticize Assistant Secretary of State
Breckenridge Long as responsible for practically killing the
resolution in Congress suggesting the establishment of a
government commission to effect the rescue of Jews from
Europe would be interested to learn that he warned against
"an entirely negative action" with regard to this resolution.
"It would be very dangerous to vote it down," he said before
the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, "very unwise, in
a way" ... He expressed his opinion that this is a very im-
portant moment in the history of the refugee movement, and
emphasjized that "the Jewish people are looking forward" to
the decision which the Committee on Foreign Affairs will
take on the resolution ... "If an entirely negative action were
taken, it would be misconstrued and might react against the
Jewish people under German control," he is quoted in the
official record as testifying Nevertheless, it is obvious
from the record of his testimony that he preferred that the
Foreign Affairs Committee support the Intergovernmental
Committee for Refugees rather than recommend the estab-
lishment of a special American committee for the rescue of
European Jews What he seemed to be most eager to
achieve was that any sympathy resolution Congress may
adopt concerning the Jews in Nazi-Europe should not fail
to include some very definite statement on the interest of the
American Government in the Jews "because the Government
has been interested in them."
RUSSIAN SIDELIGHTS ....
Those people in the United States who are going around
saying that after the war Soviet Russia will dominate the
world, will change their mind after reading David J. Dallin's
book, "Russia and Post-War Europe," just published by the
Yale University Press ... Mr. Dallin, an expert on Russian
affairs, estimates, by the way, that of the 1,500,000 persons
who were transferred by the Soviet authorities from eastern
Polish cities to Siberia in the early months of the war, fifty-
five per cent were Jews These are the Polish Jews whom
the Soviet Government now considers Soviet citizens .
Most of them are still in Siberia, while others are in Uzbekis-
tan ... As to the future of Russia after the war, Mr. Dallin be-
lieves that it will not be Russia, but England and America
who will jointly dominate the world During the years
immediately after the war the huge navies of Britain and the
United States will rule the world seas, and their air power
will ensure their predominance on the continents, Mr. Dallin
predicts The prospect that the only real force will be com-
bined power of the two Anglo-Saxon countries spells great
danger for the foreign policy of the Soviet Government, the
author asserts Especiaiy so, since this policy conceives
of no greater menace to Russia than a domination of one
coalition of powers over the entire world .
out of the question.
ZIONIST AFFAIRS ....
A Zionist delegation may be received by President Roose-
velt early next month There are indications that Roosevelt
and Churchill conferred on the Palestine question during
their stay in Cairo ... The statement on U. S. policy with
regard to Palestine made by Assistant Secretary of State
Long before the House Committee in Washington came as a
disappointment to "Zionist leaders This statement, the
first of its kind, did not mention the Jews, the Balfour declara-
tion, the Jewish National Home ... It spoke of American in-
terest in Palestine's future from the viewpoint of the "larger
aspect of world security and world peace" ... In the light of
growing pro-Arab propaganda in Washington, conducted by
interested American individuals of influence, this statement
is certainly calculated to appease everybody but the Jews.
One must not take it for granted, however, that the pro-Arab
influence in higher circles in Washington remains unchal-
lenged ... Dr. Abba HQlel Silver, chairman of the American
Zionist Council, is today the busiest Jewish leader in the
country ... In fact, Jewish interests in Palestine have in Dr.
Silver the most active defender, whose influence in Wash-
ington is much greater than that of any other Zionist leader.
RELIEF REFLECTIONS ....
The Jewish Labor Committee has taken issue with the
State Department on the figures submitted by Mr. Long to the
House Foreign Affairs Committee in his report on the number
of Jewish refugees admitted to the United States during the
last ten years These figures are challenged in a memo-
randum which the Jewish Labor Committee submitted to the
State Department And speaking of refugees, it is inter-
esting to learn that the Council of Jewish Women is now com-
piling a gigantic master file of famUies disrupted by the war
and Nazi persecution This file is made up of scraps of
information from all corners of the world ... It will be of the
qreatest value during the post-war period, since it already
contains names of thousands of European Jews who today
are in concentration camps and labor battalions Ongin-
alv bequn when the Council undertook the task of locating
the relatives of Jewish families scattered by persecution
from their native villages, the file is expanding daily as fresh
reports come in from refugees in all parts of Asia, Africa and
the United States.

The volunteers, it was pointed
out, will be sacrificing the only
recognized holiday in the army's

NOTES OF Y.M.H.A
We received a grand letter from
Mrs. Augusta Schon Holzman,
president of the New England
Council of Christians and Jews
for the Promotion of Goodwill
and Better Understanding. She
commended us for bringing Mr.
Irving Davidson, the attorney
and author from New York City,
who addressed the audience on
the topic of "Contemporary Jew-
ish Wit and Humor,' to Miami.
Letters of this kind encourage us
to continue with our efforts to
bring cultural programs to this
community. The YMHA extends
thanks to you, Mrs. Holzman.
Last Sunday evening, a barn
dance was held at the Y for all of
the Youth Groups. Then- were
various contests held during the
course of the evening, the feature
of the program being the square
dance lead by Miss Miriam Le-
ing as a physician, a codifier, and
philosopher and advanced the
philosophic aspects of Judaism.
Rabbi April is one of my fellow

Morris Hindus, and the subject
matter is timely. We have found

Next War Bond Drive
It's not too early to remind you

in the next and largest War Bond
Drive to be undertaken bv Sho-

"Chanuka" presents account for
some bank accounts that may be
leaner, but buying War Bonds a
not predicated upon whether the
money is there to spare. Bonds
must be bought even if. and
when, the buying hurts.

conference and consultation, with
a view toward getting the most
active and best qualified mem-
btjrs to act as committee chair-
men, and undertake the various
activities, which, when taken as
a whole, comprise Sholem Lodge.

CHANUKA OF 1776
By MARTIN SILVER
I call this a Chanuka story.
Maybe others might call it a
Christmas story. I guess it all
depends whether you are a Jew
or a Christian. The point isit
happened around Christmas time
which is always generally also
That's one fact I want to make
clear before starting. There is
anotherand that isthat this
u really not a story at all, if you
mean by a story fiction. It is
It was the year 1776. You know
that year is very much like our
own 1943as far as America was
concerned. The glorious year of
1776, we say, thinking of the De-
claration of Independence pro-
claiming all men are equal and
so on. But we forget it was also
a terribly black year. The ink
1011 N. W. Second Avenue
on the Declaration of Independ-
ence was still wet when Wash-
ington was retreating from one
position to another. He was re-
treating mostly from the Ger-
mans. Just as today, so many
foolish people say Nazis when
they should say Germans, so
then they said Hessians, when
they should have said Germans,
for it was not only from the pro-
vince of Hesse that these mercen-
ary soldiers came to fight against
the idea that all men are created
equal, but from many other pro-
vinces of Germany.
Washington had been driven
out of New York by these Ger-
man enemies of liberty and, go-
ing over to New York, was con-
tinuing his retreat. Thrown out
at Fort Lee, he was retreating as
December came on, near the vi-
cinity of Trenton.
The people of New Jersey
were flocking by the hundreds to
take advantage of the pardon
which General Howe had prom-
ised to those who repented and
swore allegiance to the British.
The American cause seemed to
be doomed. Only a half year had
passed since the signing of the

already General Howe thought it
was all over and gave Cornwallis
permission to return to England.
Howe was thinking himself of
Yes, that deal with the Ger-
mans was a bargain. They had
only to appear in a place and the i
Americans ran away. They car-!
ried with them the reputation of
invincibility. With that reputa-

They win almost before they
Besides the reputation, they had
those big black mustachios. That
was the one difference between
the Germans of 1776 and Mr. Hit-

sawed-off mustache. It wouldn't
do for him to have a big mus-
tache, since Hitler is mostly lip,
and he must not hide that. But
the invading German enemies of
liberty in 1776 all wore those big
black terrifying sort of mustach-
ios. It was said, they blacked
them every morning with shoe
Like it or notthere were
the Germans and the Americans
who were very much perturbed
about them. There were English-
men to be fought too but the
Americans were not so much
troubled by the English. The
Americans had met them at
Bunker Hill and inflicted terri-
ble damages on them. General
Howe had learned to respect
But these arrogant uncouth
Germans seemed something dif-
ferent. Everyone spoke of their
invincibility. Everyone remind-
ed you that many of them were
veterans in the battles of Freder-
ick the Great.
Americans were a peace mind-
ed people. They had no discip-
lined army. Of scientific war-
fare they knew little. It was no
wonder that the people were wor-
ried. The army began to feel this
panic and desertion began on a
wholesale scale. Even Congress
in sessions at Philadelphia be-
came terrified and left the city.
Thomas Paine who had done
so much to whip up the feeling for
independence sat himself down
to write. He used the top of a
drum for his desk and what he
wrote seemed like a drum call.
He appealed to the people to have
faith. He reminded them that
panic sometimes seizes every na-
tion, that England had trembled
many times. He decried the "sum-
mer soldier," those who are will-
ing to serve when everything
seems hunkydory but who desert
when things are not so well.
Washington had Paine's Crisis
read before the soldiers and it
stopped the desertions and the
spirit of the people too was in-
Yet there were still the Ger-
mans! Paine had but given the
Americans a tonic.
But unless a decisive victory
over the Germans was brought
about soon some way, the effects
would wear offand the depres-
sion would become chronic and
that would mean that the Ameri-
cans would have to give up the
It is now or never, Washington
said. Either a victory now over
the ermans or the jig was up!

the Americans that he would not

"They must be our target. We
must wipe them out or give up
the ghost," said Washington.
Washington laid his plans for
a Victory or Death battle. Every-
thing was prepared except the
time for it. And it is here, that
the Jewish angle enters.
There was a young Jew in the
late thirties, who used to be some-
times used by the American for-
ces in dealing with the Germans,

The Jerusalcm-to-Tel Aviv ex-
press was hot and sweaty. You
couldn't open the windows, eith-
er, or a tornado of dust would
envelop you in three seconds
flat. Due to the merciless heat
or a spirit of informality which
seemed to possess every passen-
ger, or perhaps because of both
reasons, you couldn't find a man
wearing :i jacket or a woman
who didn't strike up a conversa-
tion with you and talk as if you
had known each other some twen-

and I hail him. "Say. tell me. dt>

in the affirmative. So I ask him
to tell the young lady sitting at

PEARL HARBOR ANNIVERSARY AND
(Page from the Diary of a Jewish Soldier)
By DAVU) ZAGIER
Anniversary of Pearl Harbor,
but the U. S. Army in wartime is
a deadly serious institution,
neither taking out thousand year
mortgages on history, nor given
to observing occasions. A little
touch of grimness in the faces
perhaps, a suspicion of extra
punch in the counting of cadence
maybe, and a brief reference in
the chapel sermon, but no more.
Altogether the hallmark of the
work here, even in the Fourteenth
Armored Division up the hill, is
not vicious hate, but a pecuiar
brand of American detached ness.
They seem to be preparing to
kill Germans not in an Intense
but in an efficient sort of way.
The mass production trait.
The guy from Albany, New
York, does not like one solitary
thing about this Army. He griped
even before the buck-too. hod
blonde at the USO party tonight.
He was sloppy, shifty, with the
profile of a' saloon anarchist of
forty years ago, and his words
came in a lazy, turgid stream.
The chow, he said, was rotten;
the shoes did not fit and that's
why he did not shine them; and
he did not want to live any long-
er. It took a long while before
I realized that that was his pe-
culiar way of courting, like some
animal whose name 1 forget, by
smell. When she finally gave
him the cold shoulder, the Schop-
penhauerian trooper turned his
attack against the USO victuals.
I saw him stuff his pockets full
of chocolate layer cake and was
convinced that he was not going
to commit suicide after all. We
have them of this kind, too, but
Snoring may have caused more
cases of AWOL than the prospect
of an eight-day problem or the
irresistible charms of girl friends.

cell in the guardhouse, I might
have gone over the hill myself,
for barracks number 1945 has far
more than its fair quota of snor-
Like field artillery, snoring has
its variations in caliber, eleva-
tion, range of effectiveness and
power of repercussion. The com-
parison may be flogged a touch
further, in that both in artillery
and in snoring, none of the above
is necessarily dependent on the
noise or the size of the piece. We
have big fellows who snore so
softly, you could hardly hear
them five beds away, and we
have little men who keep the non-
coms awake nights in their pri-
vate rooms. Some loud snorers
have less penetration, while some
low-pitched whining ones get to
the very marrow. In the case
of Private Kurt G., he is the own-
er of a style that has ravaging
effects because of its irregular
meter, the element of psycholog-
ical surprise, so as to say. Num-
ber 145 calls him Beg Birtha,
meaning that he is tremendous
and sporadic. My luck landed
me between Diego, a tiny fat
Mexican who snores like a pre-
historic mammoth, and a Prague
refugee who doubles for the
ram's horn in his slumbers and
whose name is Werther Weiner.
Defense measures against
Werther were easy to come by,
for he is a good friend of mine
and generally meek. Whenever
it gets really bad, I wake him.
While he is awake, I fall asleep.
With Diego it was more prob-
lematic. Diego is showing Latin
temper, although he has a rotund,
angelic face and smiles most of
the day, and I don't care to cross
him. Trusting to the angel that
must be somewhere in him, I re-
verted to stratagem. I made it a
goint every morning to report to
'iego that the snorers are caus-
ing me tortures of the soulnot
he, Diego, mind you, but the
snorers, in plural. My cunning
bore fruit, but instead of being
sweet, it is embarrassing.
Early today, I had occasion to
rise for a four o'clock detail and
found Diego's bunk empty. Down-
stairs, in the latrine, poor Jaime
Diego was sound asleep on the
seat, fully dressed from fatigue
cap to leggings and snoring free-
ly. The boys say that he had
been doing it for three nights
now, just to give us a chance to
get some sleep!
Another semi-permanent latrine
deni/.en is Tani, the Maltese, but
he keeps himself enthroned for
the purpose of reading his hymnal
and telling his beads. I used to
condemn his misplaced piousness,
but in view of the lesson I learned
in the case of Diego. I am in-
clined to reserve further judg-
ments. The njl rp.,2; some (if

The K. P. pusher does not repeat

know whether I'd represent the
enlisted men at tonight's bond
rally in Fort Smith and make a
radio speech. I said, yes but I
am on K. P. They said, yes they
know they can get me off. And
I said all right.
The name of the station to

from K. P. was K. F. P.
My fears that the fellows would
visit punishment on me because
of this spot of apple-polishing
was unjustified. They fed me on
ice cream and wined me on cokes
to celebrate my return from Fort
Smith famous, until I could take
no more. But while I was gorg-
ing myself on the fare of the

Seligson distributed the same
evening on behalf of the Chanuka
comn ittee of the Kansas City
Jewish women of the USO.
My Jewish buddies flaunted
their "Cnanuka-money" before
me. Men like Louis Holz, who
wins or loses ten dollars in black-
jack with equal amusement, or
like Farbman, the Galician oil-
man, who still carries on a big
l usiness through his lawyers in
Houston, showed off the gifts of
tooth paste and candy like excit-
ed children. Even our atheist
went to chapel on this occasion.
Few of US, foreigners, get any-
thing from home, because few of
us have homes, but we like to re-
ceive packages no less than the
boy from Kalamazoo or Willow

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24 l943
IT HAPPENED LUST WEEK
By MILTON BROWN
Copyright. 1943, Jewish Telegraph Agency, Inc.
The State Department came out
in the open this week on sub-
jects of Jewish interest. The oc-
casion was the appearance of Mr.
Breckenridge Long before the
House Committee on Foreign Af-
It does not appear that Mr.
Long's remarks created any in-
creased good will for his depart-
ment. In the first place. Mr.
Long's statement about the num-
ber of Jewish refugees who were
given asylum in America was er-
roneous and leading Jews were
quick to point to the error. Sec-
ondly Mr. Long's statement about
the attitude of the State Depart-
men on the question of Palestine
was scarcely satisfactory.
Said Mr. Long: "The American
Government is not entirely ob-
tuse about Palestine or is disin-
terested in the situation that is
developing there. We have been
interested and we will continue to
be interested from the point of
view of larger aspects of world
security and world peace, as well
as the rights of humans and hu-
manitarian sympathies and the
religious sentiments involved."
Now this statement may ap-
pear to Mr. Long to be satisfying.
To the Jews it sounds a little bit
as though our State Department
dwells on Mt. Olympusnot
down on earth. It seems as
though the Department were try-
ing to shelter itself behind a
barricade of words. It seems to
shrink at the thought of mention-
ing the Jews in connection with
From Palestine, came word that
the five colonists of the Hulda
settlement have been found guil-
ty of illegal possession of arms.
The news of their conviction will
scarcely increase the good will
of Jewry toward Britain, but ap-
parently in this war, England is
not as interested in enlisting Jew-
ish good will as it was in the first
Irrespective of this angle, it is
difficult to understand the Brit-
ish action. Hulda is a cooper-
ative colony. Anyone who has
ever been in a Palestine cooper-
ative colony would know that the
members of such a colony are the
last people in the world looking
for fights with pistols and swords.
The members of these groups are
all idealists, men who have re-
nounced the pursuit of money
and things. They live by the
sweat of their b|pw and the little
that they earn trVv share equally.
If merr.bers of J ,ch groups pos-
sess arme, we m; be sure, they
need them. Twit ', the residents
of Hulda have seen their com-
munity subjected to Arab attack.
Hulda is located in a section de-
tached from the main stream of
Jewish communities in Palestine.
It is. therefore, very vulnerable.
The second time there was an
attack on Hulda, 17 of its mem-
bers were killed.
How can anyone in the face of
such facts feel that the resident!
of Hulda are not justified in pos-
sessing arms for self-defense?
If anyone should be tried in
this matter, it seetni to us. it is
the British administration in Pal-
estine, which is fundamentally
responsible for the insecurity
which it makes necessary for the
Jews to feel that they nipst pos-
sess arms for self-defense.
In London this week there was
revived the old talk of partition
las a solution for the Palestine
problem. A series of articles on
Palestine appeared in the London
Times and they were construed as
preparing public opinion for the
thought of partition.
Zionist leaders continue to op-
pose the plan, however, asserting
that no large Jewish immigration
would be possible under such a
scheme. It is probable that the
Arabs would like it as little.
The report that Prime Minister
Churchill before leaving for the
great conference in the Middle
East conferred in London with
Dr. Wcizmann was confirmed this
week. It appears that General
Smuts who is now in London had
something to do with arranging
the conference. Smuts is a dyed
in the wool Zionist. If Weizmann
had only Smuts to deal with, his
problems would be soon over.

He bore a letter of introduction

The conference between the
young Jew and Washington's
aide was soon arranged.
The Jewish visitor made the
purpose of his errand known at
"I want to suggest that the
forthcoming attack, of Washing-
ton on the Germans take place on
Christmas night," he said.
The Colonel laughed. "Why
should you. a Jew, suggest Christ-
mas night for the battle. Ah, a
Jewish conspiracy against Christ-
mas. I vow.'
"No." said the young Jew. "I
respect all sincere religions and
so I respect Christmas and none
more 'peace on earth and good
will to men' than the Jew. But
I am an American and I want to
MS the Germans defeated and I
don't mind saying it, I know my
Germans. Theyll be drinking
themselves senseless that night.
It is the one night on which they
will not expect a battle and. as
everyone knows, surprise is one
of the great secrets of military
"By Jove." said the colonel,
"that's an idea. I'll speak with
the General about this.'
