Jewish Welfare
Bureau Meets
Officers and Board Elected.
A well attended meeting marked
the annual gathering of the mem-
bers of the Jewish Welfare Bureau
at the Elk"s Club last Mondav
The meeting was called to order
by Mr. P. Scheinberg, its president
for the past seven years In a few
well chosen words he outlined the
work of the Welfare Bureau and
stressed the fact that while great
importance is paid to the actual
financial and material relief of
those in heed, yet a great deal of
time and effort is placed to help
people get hold of their normal
selves and in social work to te-
unite families. He showed how
the Social worker of the Bureau
makes innumerable visits to the
various Hospitals and homes and
follows up cases of desertions;
helps locate positions for families
and returns strangers to their
home cities.
After the report of the President
and before the nomination of off
cers, Mr. John Wolf was recogniz-
ed and spoke at length on the
work of Mr. P. Scheinberg in the
past several years as President
and concluded with introducing
Mr. J. L. Shochet. In a brief
speech Mr. Shochet told of the
sacrifices Mr. Scheinberg had
made both financially and physic-
all) in order to devote himself t >
the work of the Bureau and on be-
half of the members, officers and
directors of the Jewish Welfare
Bureau presented Mr. Scheinberg
with a beautiful silver pitcher and
tray as a token of the appreciation
of all connected with the Bureau
for his unselfish work. Mr. Day
J. Apte concluded the presentation
with a few well chosen remarks of
his knowledge of Mr. Scheinberg's
work and remarked that he hoped
that the good work done would al
ways remain as a lasting tribute to
Mr. Scheinberg's devotion.
The following officers were un-
animously chosen: Day J. Apte,
President; John Wolf, 1st Vice
Pres.; Sam Kanter, 2nd Vice-Pre*.
Mrs. Anna Benjamin, Treasurer;
Gerald Lewis AssL Treasurer;
Stanley C. Myers, Secretary.

Norman Mirsky, Sam C. Levenson,
Dan Cromer, Lewis Brown, A.
Tauber, and Mesdames D. J. Apte,
P. Scheinberg and Isidor Cohen
were elected as Directors after due
balloting. Drs. Samuel Aronowitz
and Max Dobrin were unanimous-
ly elected on the Board of Direct-
ors, without being balloted upon,
as a tribute to their work for the
sick of the Welfare Bureau.
A rising vote of thanks was giv-
en the retiring Secretary, Jake
Brown and to the Social Secretary
Mrs. Lois Dobrin for their ser-
vices to the Bureau.
An amendment to the Constitu-
tion was adopted creating the of-
fice of Honorary President, and

Modern Trends of American Literature
(Rabbi Cong. Beth
Is literature responsible for the
times or is it merely a mirror of
a certain period in history? In
other words, is it the writer who
moulds public thought and opin-
ion to any appreciably lasting ex-
tent, or are his words merely an
echo of existing thoughts and ten-
dencies? Taken at face value this
question must appear moot and
eminently qualified to take its
place in the vicious circle, side
Dl side with that old reliable
which preceded which-the egg or
the hen? Possibly so. And yet
the question remains as interesting
as ever.
Think of an age that* has devel-
oped so quick a tempo of life as
ours has, that is so eagerly con-
tent to live according to the teach-
ings of Omar Khayyam I with
modern American variations. The
"jug of wine" has been magicallv
transformed into a "hip-flask,"
and 'underneath the bough" has
been changed to read "the rumble
-eat of a roadster" I that hugs
LIFE so violently that it threat-
ens to "choke the life out of life"
to cap the climax, picture a gen-
eration intellectually inclined, but
which is so fearful it will "miss
the show" that it takes its educa-
tion standing, in fitful doses of
>utlines: The Outline of Philoso-
phy; The Outline of History;
the Story of Literature; the A.B.C.
of Chemistry, etc., etc. (For one
blessed witih more leisure time
than myself, I suggest the writing
of a book called "The Outline of
Outlines." This should prove
'The Great American Book" that
Minors and critics have been vain-
ly'seeking for a number of years),
picture that much-adjectived gene-

ration displaying a decided flair

Conclusive proof of the master v
of mind over matter? That the
zealous guardians have sucr eeded
in -laving the many-headed hydra
and have restored the garden of
literature to it* former grandeur
and pristine innocence? Hardly
. Rather would one hazard the
opinion that the present genera-
tion is vainly seeking to find in
tru? literature of that era. that,
which its own life fails to offer
placidity, contentment, peace.
Incidentally it might here be men-
tioned that probably no other pe-
riod in literature has witnessed
such an avalanche of biographies
and autobiographies as has come
since the World War. But there
is a fallacy in this assumption.
For these biographies are not
mere biographies like Ibsen's
"problem plays." These biog-
raphies are "purpose biograph-
ies." And their purpose is ex-
tremely praiseworthy. First, show
that a certain man was great.
When the reader has become con-
vinced of his greatness, sling as
much mud as possible at the great
man but do not cover him com-
pletely. Permit a few spots of
greatness to be noticed through
the blotches of mud. The recipe
is childishly simple. Select any
great man whose name and
achievements have inspired men
for many years; insinuate or state
bluntly (his descendants possess
too much good taste to drag the
matter into court), that he was
vulgar, dishonest and immoral
and, behold, you have a "best sel-
ler." (The reader will recall
"The Life of Washing on." by
Rupert Hughes: "This Side Idol-
atry, purporting to be ai account
of the life of Dickens; aid the re-
cent "Life of Gladstone'). Our
generation pauses for a moment
as each hero is dragged from his
pedestal into the mire, grins dia-
bolically, nods its head it approv-
al, and hastily passes to the next
pedestal to "have more fun."
What is the cause of tkis? Can
it be that we are so brutilly hon-
est that we can stand n< shame,
even in the highly wnerated
dead." Our daily life haidly sub-
stantiates this theory. Or, is it
that our generation knowing it is
wicked, in self-justifica ion, at-
tempts to show that the past, as
exemplified by its great nen, was
also wicked?
So much for biography There
is another and much moje laud-
able trend in modern literature.
Time was when James Bairie was
preferred to Leo Tolstoy in this
country, not so much beciuse of
the former's whimsicality, but be-
cause all his stories were so Peter
Panny. with happy endings, while
those of the latter were too *tark
and realistic. Nowadays, while
Barrie and his like still enjoy
great favor in this Country it is
alongside such names as Ibsen,
Tolstoy. Dostoyevsky and >thers.
And quite naturally so.
A country, for years taunted by
the subtle irony of Cabel!, the
sneering contempt of Mencken,
the regularly appearing jibes of
Sinclair Lewis, .and the passion-
ate denunciations of Upton Sin-
clair must eventually come to the
realization that episodes in every-
day life do not always end 'with
"And they lived happily ever af-
ter." Thus the birth of realism
in American literature. The
school of the realists is compara-
tively young. Of the few realists
who come to mind. Sherwood An-
derson is probably the greatest. In
fact, he might almost be termed
the Father of American Realists.
Worthy lieutenants in the strug-
gle to introduce realism into
American literature are Theodore
Dreiser and Ernest Hemingway.
Although a late arrival. Jim Tull'y
also might be included. As yet
Russian and American realism are
not identical. The Russian real-
ist concerns himself more with the
inner man. with the details of emo-
tion, with the paradoxical work-
ings of the human mind, than
does his American contemporary.
And yet. prrhap*. unknowingly,
we are witnessing the creation of
a new branch in realism. The ab-
ruptness of remarks, the staccato
like sentences and the constant
repetition of stark scenes, remin-
iscent of the steady patter of rain
on the roof of n lonely shack, all
may be symptoms of a new st\le
in realism tha bids fair to be-
come a permanent integral part of
American literature.

When I came to this Country,
I looked around for a job; didn't

my friends for advice and after
long consultations. 1 bought a
monkey and a hand organ. "Offi-

It play funerals, and it play
church music. Everything, any-

At the Friendship League the

sensible clothing has reduced ac-
i idents on trains and busses by at
least SO per cent?" She paused to
let this sink in. It gave one of
our bright young friends his op-

gentleman friend said, politely,
"but why not do away with ac:i-
dents altogether?*1

You can't always build a news-

My idea of a bad impression is
one made by a lip-sticked kiss.

it suddenly reappears in a weekly

On Wings of Song
By David Ewen
One music season follows an-
other in an inevitable sequence,
like so many waves, carrying up-
on their crests flotsam and jetsam
but occasional shells which con-
tain latent gems. A season has
just passed, another one is about
to arrive,and between the going
and coming it may be wise to re-
flect on what the past has wrought.
And while the coming season is
yet in somnolence and the new
music which it will bring yet un-
heard, we might summon up re-
membrance of things past so that,
with our feet firmly planted in
yesterday we can look more criti-
cally and more penetratingly upon
Felix Mendelssohn it was who
gave birth to a long line of great
Jewish composers. He was the first
of the great composers of his race.
Himself a delicate and sensitive
soul which quivered under the
touch of any exotic influence, his
music is as delicate as he was. Like
Mozart, Mendelssohn seemed to
have an innate genius for express-
ing his messages in silken deli-
cacy. His orchestration is as frag-
ile and as tender as precious china-
ware. Instinctively he chose the
proper balance: he could attain
sonority without becoming pomp-
ons or raucous. And he could
depict sensitive delicacy without
becoming as tenuous and inexpres-
sive as Debussy. Intensely emo-
tional, he was. however, too much
of an artist to permit his music to
froth with vapid passions. He is
restrained ami careful and hi*
emotional outpourings are the re-
actions of a highly sensitive artist.
All the virtues of the Romantic
period--of which he is the epitome
find their embodiment and per-
fection in Mendelssohn's music.
The tender poetry of Schumann,
the effeminate charm of Chopin,
the melodic robustness of Anton
Rubinstein, and the exaggerated
emotions of a Meyerbeer,all
have grown out of Mendelssohn's
music just as Minerva grew out
of the head of Jove. His fellow-
JewsMeyerbeer and his creation
of the Romantic opera, Rubinstein
and his founding of a nationalistic
Russian idiom, Joachim and his
sweeping Hungarian musicimi-
tated Mendelssohn with blindness
and with groping. But they are
lesser personalities, filling in the
period between two giantsFelix
Mendelssohn and Gustav Mahler.
To the great music-audience,
Gustav Mahler is an incompre-
hensible pedant of musical com-
position. But to the scattered few
of learned musiciansas typified
by Arnold Schonberg, Richard
Strauss, Tschaikowsky, Brahms,
Nickisch, etc.he was and is one
of the greatest Titans of the sym-
phony; the first to lead the way
to the moderns. Mahler did not
content himself with tinkling, per-
fumed melodies which deliciously
tickle the ear and the senses but
which are shallow and stagnant.
Mahler did not, like Wagner, revel
but in massive orchestral fabrics;
or even, like Brahms, did he de-
light in the sumptuous, sensuous
ecstasy of human emotions.
Mahler is a metaphysician and
music is his metaphysics. In the
Second Symphony he voices the
tongue of destiny, wherein the
I death of a Hero in his gallant
Promethean struggle to learn what
I life and death really are, is depict-
[ed. The Third Symphony is to
Nature, not overbubbling with a
Beethovian exuberance in the de-
llicious presence of countrysides,
[but rather the outcry of a bewild-
jered Spinozistic Pantheist who
I seeks out the inherent meaning of
I Nature. The Fifth Symphony is
one of the greatest threnodies in
all music, a grim, tragic disserta-
tion on Death. The Eighth is a
Faustian pursuit for the vain hap-
piness and joy of life; the Ninth,
as a gigantic culmination of Mah-
ler's superhuman struggles with
the philosophic problems of life,
is, aptly enough, a docile resigna-
tion to it.
William Mengelherg has called
Mahler's Nine Symphonies greater
than Beethoven's. But the greatest
appreciation of all has come from
the pen of Arnold Schonberg, fore-
most of modern composers, who
dedicated his valuable book on
harmony to the memory of his im-
mortal teacher:
"This book is dedicated to Gus-
tav Mahler. It is hoped that this
dedication might give him some
small joy while he still lived.
"But Gustav Mahler had to fore-
go far greater joys than that which
the book might have brought him.
This martyr, this saint, had to
leave this earth before he had so
far advanced his work as to be
able to hand it over to his friends
in all tranquility.
"I should have contented myself
with offering him this satisfaction.
Hut now that he is dead it is my
wish that my book may bring me
this esteem, that none may gainsay
me when 1 say. Truly he was a
great man!"
Then came the revolt. Music,
it was feared, had become too
mug and complacent: it was too
artificial in the orgiastic orchestra-
tion and SUmptUOUS development
that Wagner had given it, and in
the elaborate emotions of the Ro-
mantics and Brahms. But more
grievous than all this, music was
becoming too stereotyped. Due to
the limited number of scales in
existence, musicit was feared
waa beginning to repeat itself. A
revolt was needed, a revolt against
th' stiff rules of the past. Of this
revolt, Arnold Schonberg was the
Arnold Schonberg's idiom is in-
dubitably his own. The "Gurre-
Lieder" has its roots in no other
music; it is a new weird twist in
the language of music. Before the
Gurre-Lieder" Schonberg had com-
posed Verklaerte Nacht lucid.
fluent contrapuntal writing in
which the exquisite mood of a
sensuous night is entrapped in
gossamer, delicate tone-colors. It
remains Schonberg's most beauti-
ful music and one of the high-
peaks of twentieth century music.
Schonberg has always hated
superfluities. One of his earliest
theories was that music, to be sub-
lime, must be denuded of all sup-
erficiality, of all extraneous mater-
ial, of all unnecessary appendages
and must present its terse message
succinctly. Brevity, therefore, is
the soul of Schonberg's wit. One
of his Five Compositions for Or-
chestra is merely six bars! Schon-
berg's orchestration, moreover, is
threadbare and transparent; it
consists only of those instruments
which are absolutely essential to
the message. Schonberg will, there-
fore, seldom use the tympani and
never the triangle, glockenspiel,
snares, etc.all of which color
music but are not essential to it.
He must pierce into the very heart
of music; he must be absolutely
to the point without any subter-
fuge or circumventions; he must
reveal his message in its baldest
altitudes. Of modern composers,
therefore, he is the expressionist.
But somewhere in France, a
group of young talented musicians
felt that Schonberg's brutal aton-
ality and gruesome nudity were
making music too dryland color-
less, too stiff and expressionless.
It feared that music, becoming so
pedantically intellectual, was now
beginning to consist merely of a
bundle of tricks and theories.
It was then that this group the
now famous "French-six" headed
by two Jews, Darius Milhaud and
Arthur Honegger-realized that
music, if it was to achieve sublim-
ity, must blend its gushing emo-
tions of the Romantics with the
stern intellectualism of the mod-
erns. And so, the French six de-
termined to free music from pris-
on of pedagogy and theory. It
hoped, by injecting a light touch
in composing, to make music more
pliantly plastic to various differ-
ent expressions of emotions than
it was under the fingers of other
moderns. The French-six, there-
fore, restored to wit, satire and
irony as means to procure their
deft and sportive style.
They are two musical rascals
Milhaud and Honegger. "Les
Mariees" of Honegger is a master-
piece of satire and the heavy, over-
colored style of Wagner is ridi-
culed deliciouslyespecially the
grandiose funeral march conduct-
ing the dead Siegfried to his grave.
"Pacific 231" is a futuristic tribute
to the machine age. The engine
grates and shrieks and roars. And
one gets a powerful kinacsthetic
sensation in hearing it. Milhaud,
too, uses humor. In one of his
compositions the shimmy is em-
ployedin all its rascally impu-
dence. In another, the mellow
wailings of a Negro appear. He
has borrowed his effects wherever
he could find them, and his music
is completely effective.
In America, in the meanwhile,
the Jazz idiom was fully develop-
ed, and two JewsGeorge Gersh-
win and Aaron Copland-develop-
ed it. They developed polyrythm
and made it a powerful organ of
kinacsthetic expression. Gershwin's
"Rhapsody in Blue" is capricious,
whimsical, humorous but through-
out thoroughly American. In it,
jazz is thoroughly emancipated
and freed from the sterile prison
of Tin-Pan Alley. A miracle of
rhythmic ingenuitywhere changes
of time are achieved by subtle ties
and rubatos and convenient rests
a monument of coherent form
and a ponderous vessel of the wine
of melodic- lyricism, it remains the
outstanding music that America
has brought to the altar of art.
The Jazz Piano-Concerto is an ad-
vance merely in form. In content.
it is equal to the Rhapsody. This
season will tell uswith an
"American in Paris" whether
Gershwin is advancing in his art.
Aaron Copland is not the inspir-
ed musician that Gershwin is but
he is the complete technician. The
"Music for the Theatre" is not
wholly jazz. In this suite of
dances there are unmistakable mo-
ments of it. But, by far, the lovli-
est portions are serious, classical
themes and harmonies. It is the
Jazz Piano Concerto which is Cop-
land's most important work, and
a development of the jazz techni-
que. Jazz, here, adds a warmer
and more lustrous color to the
harmonies; it helps Copland at-
tain the sweeping, dynamic effect
for which he was striving. In the
Concerto, the rhythms interweave
with one another like threads of a
carefully knit scarf. One cannot
tell where they begin or where
they end. They are the rhythms
of debauchery. They rush through
the music like a gust of mighty
wind. All the lyrical themes bend
and sway before them. They fill
the music with a thunderous in-
tensity that locks the work into a
coherent unity.
One other preeminent composer
lives in America, but he composes
his music irrespective of trends
and eras. Ernest Bloch is not a
modernist although he utilizes
modernism. Nor does the vigorous
tongue of jazz interest him. Only
the purely classical music of Beet-
hoven and Brahms has seduced
him and it is in their idiom that
be tries to phrase his message. His
message? At first it was the Jew
the wrinkled, haggard, stooped
Jew on whose face are engraved
the thousand fingerprints of mis-
fortune and hardships but here
his message is cramped. The "Is-
rael Symphony" is not inspired
from beginning to end. It was
when he renounced his Hebrew
idiom that Bloch found himself.
The Quinete is a prophecy. It is
a music whichlike Beethoven's
last quartetsseems to link the
mundane world with the celestial
one. It seems to be a religion of
its own, uniting all of mankind
into an inseparable and undo -
standing brotherhood.
A new season is now yawning
before us. New music by Ernest
Bloch, George Gershwin, Aaron
Copland, Darius Milhaud will re-
ceive performance. Arthur Honeg-
ger is coming here to perform his
latest works. What story will this
Season tell us and what part will
the Jew play in it r* We wait for
an aswer impatienlK.

[knowledge of football
Essential to Enjoy the Game
As the season of football looms
nto the horizon and its followers
re confronted with the realization
Jiat football games are in the off-
ing, artists the world over show a
tendency to draw upon fans of
Football in a stadium as illustra-
tions for their periodicals and
magazines. The usual inference is
that the female fans attend games
if or the purpose of displaying their
hew raiment and that the male fan
[goes to the game for the purpose
[of drinking himself into glorious
[oblivion. Unquestionably the por-
[trayals or sketches are gross exag-
gerations in themselves but to my
I mind there is a tinge of truth in
their conception meaning that few
I fans or spectators understand foot-
ball well.
In the early days of football
history, science was a thing un-
heard of, but with the approach
of the open game and the time,
money and interest spent for the
development of individuals and
teams, we find that football has
become the most scientific of
sports, and its science as a general
rule is within the knowledge of the
players, the coach, and a few
close observers of football. Gen-
erally it sems the spectators do not
begin to understand or realize the
significant features of each play,
their execution and result, but are
only cognizant of a forward pass
being made, a long run perform-
ed or a touchdown or place kick
To enjoy football in the manner
it should be enjoyed, one should
know the fine points of tackling,
blocking, running the team and to
understand their importance. The
purpose of this article centers in
that statement. It is my wish to
inform you and apprise you of the
fact that football games can be a
great deal more enjoyable to you
were you to read football articles
wherein football is discussed, pay
more attention to the individual
players of the team other than the
one who is carrying the ball, and
realize that without the aid of the
other ten men, the ball carrier can
never advance. Learn the football
rules so that a penalty during the
game can be easily understood by
you. Upon following these
thoughts out you will find your-
self, not a mere spectator at a foot-
ball game, but one who knows
football, and you will find that
your ability to perceive the intric-
acies of the game will enhance
your enjoyment of if.
If any of the readers care to
ask questions about football, I
shall be glad for you to do so,
and a line in this newspaper will
reach me, and I in turn shall en-
deavor to make an appropriate
answer through the medium of
this newspaper.
Moses Mendelssohn, the great
Jewish philosopher, was once
walking on a busy thoroughfare in
Berlin deeply engrossed in
thoughts and uninentionally he
bumped into a heavy set Prussion
army officer. Mendelsohn hasten-
to apologize, but the officer be-
came furious.
"Pig!" he shouted.
Whereupon the philosopher
made a courteous bow, as if res-
ponding to a self-introduction, and
By Oliver Munning
Light is the great, vivfier, and
though it rarely reveals much
more than what we knew existed
all along, it still has the power of
exciting and awakening in us.
Thus I have long been seriously
and painfully oppressed in a rath-
er subconscious way by the patent
discrimination practised upon the
Jew in the several fields of social
and industrial endeavor, as against
the province of politics where
quality is guaranteed him by law.
But it took a ray of light in the
formalas, we can't give the
whole article in one sentence. .
My very good friend, my boss,
and a Gentile, feeling quite liber-
al and magnanimous that he had
at least one Jew in his employ,
waxed expensive and pseudo-seri-
"What is the matter with you
Jews?" he demanded, "never satis-
fied! Never have enough! Al-
ways excited, grabbing after every-
thing! You don't know what it is
to sit down and be happy and let
well-enough alone."
"Perhaps," I nodded, but said
nothing because I have learned
that when my boss has a burden
on his chest the better part of val-
or consists in letting him unbosom
himself with the least possible
"Now, for instance, I had a
salesman. He started like you, and
I taught him the business from the
bottom up. I lost money on him
at the beginning but I saw he had
good possibilities, so I kept him.
Then, what do you think happen-
ed? Just as soon as he began to
be worth his salt, the fellow slips
off and starts in business on his
own. He's 'Jake Lipsin & Co.' now,
one of our most energetic and suc-
cessful competitors. I guess you'll
end up the same way,' he barked
at me with an air of superior resig-
nationa way bosses have with
employees in whom they confide
after five P. M.
"No-no, I won't," I said weakly
because I am unused to contradict-
ing my boss.
"Yes, you will. You're all the
same," he grew reminiscent. "I
remember in school. There was
one anemic kid wno went after
every prize, and got them, too, by
God, every one of them. That's
what I don't like about you people.
Have no sense of proportion. Road
hogs, that's what you are, crowd
everybody else off. Damn capable,
I'll grant, but it's mostly for your-
selves. You won't co-operate, you
won't accept your position and
wait decently for your chance to
rise. As soon as you can you're
out for yourselves.
"That is why railroads fight shy
of Jews, and other big organiza-
tions. It costs money to train men,
and the Jew, as soon as he has a
little money or a little experience,
wants to set up shop for himself.
Be independent, he calls it. It's
a good attitude," he conceded,
"but it doesn't pay the firm, and
it's no good for business.
"Look at the clothing industry,
one of the biggest in the country
and nobody making any money
out of it. It's bad for labor and
for capital. Why? Because the
Jews got hold of it and every Jew
wants to be his ovyn boss. He'll
lose every cent he's got just to see
his name on a shingle. He'll starve
fourteen hours a day for himself
rather than earn a decent salary
working eight hours for somebody
"Look what has happened to
Zimm," he named one of the big-
gest makers of men's clothing in
the country which recently liqui-
dated, "Zimm was a big man. He
had the makings of a Captain of
"He could have bought up all
these little fellows and made a
real industry out of men's cloth-
ing. That's what was done in Steel,
even in the Baking and Grocery
Stores. But no, as soon as he
bought up one little fellow, two
sprang up in his place, some of
the very men he himself trained,"
he gave several instances. "They
lowered prices, cut each others'
throats, lowered wages, had strikes
and nine-tenths of them failed. It
doesn't pay, so big men like Zimm
who's got brains and deserves to
be a boss, is gojng out of the busi-
ness and will put his money into
something else."
I told him politely and gently
how this sad state of affairs de-
veloped historically, how the Jews
were excluded from big business
first and thereby forced into de-
veloping independently, that the
fault was with prejudice and not
with Jewish nature, that any self-
respecting individual who was arti-
ficially relegated to the lower
positions of industry would natur-
ally and inevitably develop his
own opportunities independently.
"That may be, that may be," my
boss admitted, "no doubt you're
right. We're no angels ourselves,
far from it. But I'm just stating
the facts, and facts are facts,
arent they?"
One does not dispute such a
truism, so I went home with the
distressing knowledge that I had
been a poor advocate for my breth-
Perhaps the only thing I gained
from a four-year course in one of
our great universities is the friend-
ship of one of the professors who
taught psychology there and serv-
ed as vocational adviser to the
students. He was sincerely inter-
ested in Jews,most likely be-
cause the Jewish student body was
comparatively large,as the rec-
ord of a fate that made them
"nature's most significant social
and human experiment."
I brought this scientist my heavy
"Your boss is not a Babbitt," he
said after my story, "he's ninety
per cent right. The Jews are the
most chronic rebels in history and
what I term the most persistently
dissatisfied race. That is how to
explain the facts th?t are perplex-
ing your boss, and also, if we want
to become profound, that is the
explanation of a good bit of pre-
judice that makes conservative em-
ployers fight shy of Jews and al-
lows them to employ Jews only
when Jewish ability is indispens-
"You can't predict a Jew. You
forsee what he'll do next The
Jew always wants the millenium
and that makes him an uncomfort-
able person to have around. He
has a mania for seeing the seamy
side of everything and a mission-
ary zeal for correcting faults. Now
correcting faults means change,
and change spells trouble, especi-
ally to the man who is satisfied
with himself and his position in
the world. His one fear is that
when the cards are dealt next time
he won't get such a good hand
The "Jew expects a better deal."
"That's good for progress."
"For progress, yes, but not for
pleasant social intercourse, which
is the binder or cement of big
business. Your boss doesn't care
to have his faults emphasized or
corrected. Habit is less profitable,
perhaps, but it makes life easier
and more pleasant. The Iconoclast
is never popular. Even in the most
- progressive firm his presence is
soon sensed by the complacent
boss and he is eliminated. Your
boss couldn't tell this because he
doesn't understand the scientific
jargon. He based his conscious
opinion on the more evident and
rational facts that have developed
from this peculiarity of the Jewish
mental attitude."
"But in the long run this dis-
satisfaction works for the general
good of industry and humanity at
"I'm not so sure. Rebellion and
independence, like all virtues in
excess, approach vice. You see
what happened to the Jews as a
nationality. They know not the
value of a little stupidity that will
follow a plan of action blindly
and ignore the little defects or
even the big ones. To make a mis-
take isn't a crime. Better do some-
thing wrong than do nothing at all
because you can't choose between
eight or ten panaceas. I have seen
Jews continue the same leader in
office year after year, not because
they were pleased with himthey
vociferously opposed him and tied
his hands, and refused to co-oper-
ate with him so that he could do
nothing either bad or goodthey
kept him in office because they
could not agree on a successor.
One can scarcely call that progress
or even intelligence."
"The fact that we survived
where others failed shows that we
were right."
"It shows nothing of the sort.
It shows only that you survived,
that is, as a race, and others as a
race died, the benefit of which to
you is disputable. Better to have
lived your life and died as the
Greeks and Romans did, and as
we Americans eventually will do,
than to groan through 2,000 years
like a tortured ghost What good
has your survival done?"
"Our culture."
"Your culture, what is beautiful
and good in it, would have surviv-
ed your death as a race even as
happened with the Greek and Ro-
man cultures. You're going to tell
me you've given great leaders to
humanity, Einstein, Spinoza, the
whole list, I know them. That's
all very noble for Einstein, Spin-
oza and Co., but what good do
they do the Jew? It's beautiful
philanthropy to be martyrs for
humanity but charity should begin
at home. Let's get back to the in-
dividual Jew, who is very individ-
ualistic and self-conscious. How
does he benefit from this Jewish
trait of emphasized dissatisfaction
and concomitant rebellion? Is he
happier, is he better? Does hu-
manity at least appreciate bis
sacrifice?some satisfaction in
that No, the only recognition he
is given is 'Jews need not apply.''
"The Jew is happy in his role of
the dissatisfied Spirit After all he
does a great deal of good for the
world at large including industry
and as for himself, he is fulfilling
his nature," I suggested.
"That is hard to say. This spirit
of rebellion, of dissatisfaction
with the yoke of mass co-opera-
tion,, of desire for individual in-
dependence may be in the Jewish
blood, inherited from a long line
of ancestors similarly disposed, or
it may be trained in the Jewish
child generation after generation.
You know that certain prejudices,
psychological attitudes and biases,
ways of looking at things, have a
way of persisting generation after
generation, through thousands of
years, by the simple process of
passing from mother to child, al-
most breathed in from the atmos-
phere that is shared by his im-
mediate family. This latter ex-
planation is the one I incline to
as the explanation of the Jewish
complex. But, whatever the rea-
son, this, like any other alien com-
plex, is suspected by the indigen-
ous population and in this case
doubly suspected because it takes
the universally dreaded form of
rebellion and desire for change."
"So that's how science explains
my boss's prejudice?"
"Yes, but don't let it keep you
awake nights. Live your Jewish
instincts, traditions and prejudices.
That's the only way to be happy,
for if your prejudice is to sec
faults, to be dissatisfied, then to be
dissatisfied is to be happy. After
all, prejudices are mental habits
and are goodof course with the
exception of a few pernicious pre-
judices which enlightened men
have been trying to eradicate since

Beth David Sisterhood
One of the series of card par-
ties that the Sisterhood of Beth
David has been conducting for
the benefit of the Talmud Torah
of Beth David was held at the
home of Mrs. Samuel Aronovitz
1820 Southwest 11th street, last
Wednesday afternoon. Mrs. Max
Ghertler assisted Mrs. Aronovitz
in entertaining the large number
of guests present. There were
twenty tables of bridge and beau-
tiful prizes were awarded to the
highest scorer at each table.
A beautiful lamp shade, do-
nated by Mrs. P. Scheinberg, was
raffled and Mrs. M. Silver was
the lucky recipient of the prize.
Refreshments were served and
a good time was had by all.
Among those present were: Mes-
dames I. Harris, S. I. Besvinick,
M. Pepper, A. Pepper, Chas. Gold-
stein, Silver, Leibovitz, R. J. Wol-
pert, J. Kaplan, A. Seiden, Rosen-

on by the fact that in a number of
instances when poor Jews had
died there arose quite some diffi-

age-old injunction to all Jews of
giving a decent hurial to everyone,
irrespective of wealth or station
in life, a number of Jewish citi-
zen- ol Miami formed the Broth-
erhood and Sisterhood of Chesed
Slid rallies. Quite an unexpected
response was received and there-
upon under the leadership and by
the help of Mrs. M. Rippa and
Mrs. I. Kisenstein, a plot of
ground was purchased in the
Woodlawn Cemetery consisting of
210 lots. Each lot contains five
graves. The plot of ground is
fenced in as required by Jewish
law and ha* been beautifully land-
PerpetUtl care of the

vided for in the contract for the
purchase of the land. A beautiful
gateway commemorating the work
of the founders will shortly be
dedicated and due announcement

made to all to call Mr. M. Rippa
at any time they have old clothes
to spare, as these clothes are re-
paired and sold and the proceeds
used to defray funeral costs for
the poor.
