Send Your Child To A Local

Talmud Torah At Once
Historical outposts of Jewish learning and creative-
ness are smouldering in ashes!
Our enemies, relentlessly, resort to most infamous
falsehoods to discredit our names, our position and our
heritages!
Our youth is constantly exposed to the worst calum-
nies and disheartening attacks which tend to destroy
every vestige of self-respect, self-reliance and national
pride!
Shall we arise to the occasion (and provide our grow-
ing generation with the necessary knowledge to with-
stand all this?
Now, more than ever, must Jewish education come
to the forefront in our life!
Now, more than ever before, must our clarion call
resound in all Jewish hearts!
Now, more than ever before, must every Jew awaken
to the realization that the Talmud Torah is our only guar-
antee for a better, enlightened and happier future.
The new school term has opened. Provisions have
been made in each school to take care of more children.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR PA-
RENTS TO NEGLECT ENROLLING THEIR CHIL-
DREN IN A HEBRE Ar SCHOOL.


Emigree Groups To Sell Stock

WASHINGTON, D. C.-The Dominicain Republic Set-
tlement Association, Inc., which has an agreement with
the Dominican Republic whereby 100,000 refugees, mostly
Jews from Germany and other Nazi-dominated lands, will
be settled in that country, has filed a statement with the
Securities Exchange Commission outlining the proposed
public sale of 9,569 shares of common stock at $1,000 per
share, the funds to be used to aid refugees.
The proceeds of the stock sale will be used, according
to the statement, to provide transportation expenses for
settlers, acquire land for them. consruct buildings, pur-
chase equipment and finance general supervision.
The first contingent of Jewish refugees has already
arrived at the Dominican Republic.


Says Walter Winchell

Hershel Grynszpan who shot a Nazi attache in Paris
in 1938 (Americans sent a big defense fund) was turned
over to the Gestapo last week .
The Winchell Column vs. the Fifth Column. Chicago:
Recently a child brought home several pamplets dealing
with the need for National Socialism in the U. S. She
said she got them from her school teacher. A few days
later, the teacher visited the home of the parents and
harangued them about the Nazi party in the U. S. The
enraged parents complained to the teacher's superiors,
who investigated and found out that the charges were
true Was the propagandist teacher disciplined or dis-
charged? No, she was not Instead, she was trans-
ferred to a school in a German district The school au-
thorities did this on the presumption that the Germans
in Chicago would welcome a Nazi teacher That most
Chicago Germans are anti-Hitler was disregarded.
New York: There is an Italian weekly published in
Italian, the American name of which is The Cry of the
Race. It openly preaches Fascism, boasts of its connection
with Mussolini, and publishes anti- democratic material
supplied by official Rome Loyal Italian-Americans
supplied evidence of this paper's divided allegiance on
October 31, 1939, but nothing has been done about it ...
On its front page recently was a letter urging that the
U. S. Government be overthrown amnd a Fascist govern-
ment substituted! Therefore, this is to publicly sum-
mon the attention of Messrs. Hull, Berle, Welles, et al.,
to this fact: that the editor and his paper are not regis-
tered with the U. S. Department of State (as an agency
of foreign propaganda) in compliance with the law.-

Agency Planning For Immigrants

TEL AVIV-The Jewish Agency for Palestine has
certificates available for 6,000 immigrants and will re-
ceive another 3,000 permits shortly, it was announced by
Eliahu Dobkin, head of the immigration department, at
one of the nation-wide rallies held for recruiting of Jews
in British Army units.
Since the outbreak of the war on September 3rd,
1939, 7,250 Jewish immigrants with certificates have ar-
rived in Palestine, he stated. Most of them are refugees
from Nazi-occupied lands.

Palestine Absorbed 90,000 Jewish

Refugees From Germany;

Program Continues

Approximately 90,000 Jewish refugees from Ger-
many were absorbed in Palestine since 1933 with the aid
Af the United Palestine Appeal, which receives its funds
for Refugees and overseas Needs, it was announced this
week.
In addition to the United Palestine Appeal, the Uni-
ted Jewish Appeal embraces the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee which deals with relief and rehabilitation in Eur-
ape, the Far East an Latin America, and the National
Refugee Service whose program is concerned with the
integration and adjustment of refugees in the United
States.
In the eleven months from September, 1939, to Au-
gust, 1940, more than 16,000 Jewish refugees from war-
torn Europe entered Palestine, and the flow of Jewish im-
migration is continuing through alternative avenues of
entry into Palestine extend from Greece, Rumania, Swe-
den, Lithuania and Soviet Russia. Many refugees also use
the overland route via Turkey and Syria. More than 250,-
000 Jews from Greater Germany, Poland, Rumania and
other lands have been settled in Palestine since 1933
through support provided by the United Palestine Ap-
peal.
In addition to the normal programs of immigration,
colonization and rebuilding supported by the United Pale-
stine Appeal, emergency needs created by the conflict
are now severely taxing the resources of the Jewish
Agency for Palsstine. To offset the interruption of trade
with European countries, new industries have been es-
tablished and new markets for Palestine products have
been opened up in Egypt, Syria ond Turkey.
The release recently of 2,235 extra-legal immigrant
refugees from internment camps in Palestine placed a
new burden upon the Jewish Agency for Palestine, which
is called upon to guarantee the maintenance and absorp-
tion of all inon-quota immigrants released on its assur-
ances.


500 Young Refugees Sail

For San Domingo
WASHINGTON-Five hundred young refugees from
Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, of an average age
of 16, are leaving England for the Dominican Republic,
with 500 more to follow as soon as funds and transporta-
tion can be provided, Stephen V. C. Morris, secretary of
the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees, an-
nounced.
While details of their journey are held secret, since


Germany has not guaranteed safe conduct for refugees,
it was believed they would proceed on a British liner un-
der convoy. Sir Herbert Emerson, director of the Inter-
governmental Committee, is supervising selection of the
youngsters in London.
The second group will be selected while the first is


Portugal Fears Loss of Freedom
If Nazis Drive For Gibraltar
LISBON-Portugal, now celebrating 800 years of in-
dependence, is beginning to fear that she may lose her
freedom if the development of the war makes it necessary
for Germany to operate from this country.
Well-informed circles believe it possible that the
Nazis, in arn offensive against Gibraltar, may utilize the
Spanish coast and also claim the Portuguese coast. The
Lsbon harbor, situated between the Spanish ports of Vigo
and Cadiz and only several hours from Gibraltar, attracts
the Germans because of its possibilities as a naval base.
In such an eventuality, Spain would probably sup-
port Germany. With Germamn forces now at Hendaye, on
the Franco-Spanish border, and near San Sebastian, Span-
ish port, the Madrid government would have little other
alternative than to submit to German demands.
Nazi diplomats in Portugal, in private conversations
with friends and journalists, openly boast that the Gesta-
po already possesses lists of Jews and others in Portugal
who will be handled as anti-Nazi elements. Whether these
boasts are only aimed at frightening Portuguese states-
men and the population or whether they are true, is diffi-
cult to judge.
However, their effect is to increase anxiety among
Portugal's 3000 Jews, who have resided here unmolested
for more than a century and enjoy equality of rights, as
well as among the thousands of refugees who have come
here from France.
Having no illusions as to its own possible fate, the
Jewish community of Portugal is organizing all its forces
to give maximum assistance to French, Belgian, Polish
and other Jewish refugees who have arrived here from
France. A special relief office has been opened by Jewish
relief leaders in Lisbon to aid the refugees.


Palestine Legion Safe in London
LONDON-Giving the lie to earlier reports that the
Palestine Legion, including 460 Jews and 240 Arabs from
the Holy Land, stationed in the Maginot Line somewhere
in France, had been captured by the Nazi Army, it is an-
nounced here that the Palestine Legion has arrived in
London.


en route. Whether this group will be able to sail depends
on the immediate raising of funds totalling $250.000. The
refugees will be settled on the 24,000-acre Sosua tract do-
nated by Genarlissimo Rafael L. Trujillo, ex-President of
the Dominican Republic. Permission for the children and
young men and women to enter the Dominican Republic
under the aegis of the settlement association was given
by the Dominican government. British-born children are
not necessarily excluded from this opportunity.


Whereabouts of a "lost battalion" of refugees, who
were in Italy when that nation went to war and who were
preparing to sail on the Italian steamship Neptunia for
the Domonican Republic still remains a mystery, Morris
said. Hope that they will ever reach the Dominicamn Re-
public has all but been abandoned, he said.

5701: 1940 1941


Anti-Nazis Return to Germany
Hundreds of German anti-Nazis who fled their home-
laind when Adolf Hitler came into power are being round-
ed up by his agents in conquered France and taken back
to Nazi jails, reports from across the border disclosed.
Armed with long lists of names, Nazi officials were
said to be making the rounds of civilian internment camps
in the unoccupied zone in France in a widespread search
for fugitive German nationals. Neutral observers told of
seeing large groups of forlorn prisoners herded into
trucks under guard of heavily armed Germans in civilian
clothes and being driven off to Germany via the occupied
zone.
Several hundred German nationals were said to have
been taken from the Gurs camp in the Pyrennes iin this
fashion within the last week. Many of these fought for
the Republican army during the Spanish Civil War as
members of the international Brigade and later sought
refuge iin France, where they were interned.
Some enlisted in the French Foreign Legion at the
out break of the present war, but were sent back to in-
ternment camps last March when the French army was
"purged" of all German nationals as a protection against
fifth columnists.
Tattered French uniforms still were worn by these
men as they started their journey back to Germany.
Others being sent back to the Reich include intellec-
tuals who in one way or another participated in anti- Nazi
organziations.
Various Nazi extremists of many nationalities taken
into custody by the French at the beginning of the war
alreeay have been released from internment camps in
the unoccupied zone.


Religion and Democracy
"It is necessary for the members of every American
religious nomination to bring to its people as effectively
as possible the realization of the importance of religious
tradition for the preservation of democracy in our time.
The weakness of democracy in the face of totalitarianism
has been due in the first place to disuinion andin thesecond
place to the failure to realize that democracy is more than
merely a governmental device. It is a way of life, based on
the religious doctrine of the fatherhood of God and the
dignity and worth of man.
"Judaism has an important contribution to make to
the preservation and spread of this doctrine. The Na-
tional Academy for Adult Jewish Studies will seek to
strengthen the faith in God and in human dignity, by
spreading information regarding the Jewish religious
tradition. Jewish learning has always been the foundation
of the Jewish faith. It is particularly important that this
foundation be strong in' ur time when the great Jewish
centers of learning in Europe have been so ruthlessly de-
stroyed."-Dr. Louis Finkelstein, President of National
Academy for Adult Education.

Making Independence Endure


"To make our independence endure, be it indepen-
dence from other nations or vivil liberty within our own
nation, we need freedom of expression of opinion which
in turn necessitates the party form of government. One
party means dictatorship; two parties mean democracy. I
rejoiced when the party out of power, whether its bosses


Gestapo Spurs Anti-Semitism
In Denmark
LONDON-Nazi anti-Jewish activities in occupied
Denmark are assuming increasingly serious proportions,
reports here disclosed.
Anti-Semetic demonstrations, instigated by the Ges-
tapo, occurred during recent days at Luna Park, Copen-
hagen, and in other cities, it was said. An anti-Semetic
delegation called on the Mayor of Copenhagen and de-
manded that he ban Jews from parks and swimming
pools and issue a regulation compelling Jewish business
concerns to post up distinctive signs proclaiming their
Jewish character.
Under Nazi pressure Copenhagen municipal authori-
ties were forced to remove memorial plaques from the
houses of the late George Braindes, noted Danish Jewish
critic and literary historian and the late Chief Rabbi
David Jacob Simonsen.
The German wireless reported that the Danish Cabi-
net has decided to eliminate all Jews from public service.
Other dispatches said that Der Stuermer, Julius
Streicher's Jew-baiting newspaper, was demanding the
deportation of all Jews from Berlin to Holland and Bel-
gium for force labor on projects for repairing war
damage.

Academy for Adult Jews Formed
NEW YORK-The Jewish Theological seminary an-
nounced establishment of the National Academy for
Ault Jewish Studies, with the stated aim of creating a
more informed Jewish laity which will recognize the
vast significance of religious traditions for the preserva-
tion of liberty in our time.
Dr. Israel M. Goldman, rabbi of Temple Emanuel,
Providence, will be national director. Dr. Louis Finkel-
stein, president of the seminary, will be president of the
academy. X
The academy will launch a popular adult Jewish
education movement in this country next November. It
will function through approximately 100 affiliated Insti-
tutes for Jewish Education in every part of the country.


Chile Uncovers Anti-Semitic
Nazi Groups
The Nazi Anti-Semitic movement has penetrated in-
to Chile. The Chilean authorities discovered beyond ques-
tion that the German Nazi party has a district organiza-
tion covering all Chilean territory.
The first Nazi movement discovered was a weekly
paper called the Luns, which before the war published at-
tacks against the Popular front regime. It launched a
vicious anti-Jewish campaign, raising the racial issue for
the first time in Chile.
Inquiry showed that it was financed by Hans Voigt,
head of the German State Railways Bureau and promi-
nent in the Santiago German colony, who has made many
prominent Chilans his friends by sending them to Ger-


many on cheap trips by using special exchange marks.


wanted it or not, had to put forth a man of intellect,
frankness and effectiveness as its leader."-Rabbi Jacob

Mussolini Desires To Make Pope Spiritual Head of Palestine


The news that Italy wishes to make the Pope the
spiritual head of Palestine, while Mussolini remains in
control of its economic and political life is not unexpected.
For a long time I have believed that Mussolini would re-
joice to occupy the role of the Romans in days gone by,
and prove himself the political overlord of the Holy Land,
while the Pope becomes the guardian of the Holy Places.
After all, Great Britain is chiefly Protestant, but Italy
is Catholic. The item that the Jewish population will be
deported to Ethiopia comes as a shock, and I cannot be-
lieve that the Duce would be so foolish. The population of
Palestine may be "frozen," and the program of the Jewish
National Home repudiated, even more effectively than
under the British. But I believe Mussolini would wish to
keep iin Palestine the active, constructive Jewish commu-
nity, and make it a bright gem in his imperial diadem.
If he were to denude Palestine of its Jewish population,
the country would become a desert again. Anything fan-
tastic is possible in these cataclysmic times, and the ex-
pulsion of five hundred thousand Jews is not beyond
the realm of probability. Moreover, Mussolini would not
be averse to unleashing the Arabs upon the Jews, while
he, buzzard-like, would make short shift of the remains.
Hence the proposal of a Jewish army becomes all the more
imperative. Jews might have to fight for their life and
property, or, if compelled to die in the desert, they might
go down as gloriously as martyrs of Israel in days gone
by. I suppose that Robert Nathan in "Road of Ages" is
remarking to himself that his dire prophecy of the trek
of the Jews to the Gobi Desert is tragically being ful-
filled. Yes, it is true; even out of Palestine the Jews may
be driven forth, to find a refuge wherever they can.
Perhaps parts of Ethiopia can be rebuilt and made to
blossom. But the likelihood is that if the Italian colonists
could not make Ethiopia habitable, Jews would likewise
be overcome by the obstacles.

Jews and Christians Should Combat Mobilizers-
Joseph E. McWilliams, "National Commander of the
Christian Mobilizers" is seeking to make political head-
way in New York City. A circular announcing one of his
meetings gives an indication of the program this group
is following. At the bottom, the line appears: "We reserve
the right to refuse admission or to eject any person whose
presence we feel might create a disturbance." The text
of the circular, directed of course, against the Jewish
community is as follows: "The Latest Lullaby Hit of the
Century entitled "Be Tolerant' or 'Go to Sleep Dear Chris-
tian.' Every Day, Everywhere, you are hearing a plea
'Christians be Tolerant.' Today the word tolerance is be-
ing used as a lullaby to put Christian Americans who
,Are Awakening, Back to Deep Slumber. And why .
simply so those who mow control Christian America, can
continue their treachery, their Unethical Ways of Con-
ducting Business, their Attempts to Destroy all Good in
Humanity, and their Habits which destroy Property and
Ruin Neighborhoods and Communities. Tolerance, accord-
ing to Webster's Dictionary means, 'act of enduring.' If
one is to endure something-that something must be
unpleasant, something not of the best. For example: one


endures pain. These people who tell Christian Americans
they must be tolerant, know they are doing some wrong to


Christians, but instead of asking forgiveness and correct-
ing their faults and wrong-doings, they insist Christians
should stand for and bear them. That is their simple
meaning when they say 'Be Tolerant.'Must we be tolerant
of something we know is slowly but surely destroying us?
We say no ... a thousand times no ... we will not be tol-
erant of their acts.Of their religion all Christians will be
tolerant for that does not affect Christians and therefore
no one has the right to ask us to be tolerant of that. Buy
Christian now! Later may be "too late." There is also
added an excerpt from the "so-called Bill of Rights," of
the Constitution, quoting the amendment protecting
freedom of speech, press and the right to petition. These
"Mobilizers" are using this Amendment from the Bill of
Rights for their own ends, namely to do mischief, to
arouse race hate under the guise of free speech and to
send America down the same pathway which the free
peoples of Europe have been forced to tread. Now is the
time for Jews and liberal Christians to see to it that this
hateful propaganda makes no progress in our country,
lest the entire nation be delivered into the hands of Hitler.
*
HIAS Carries On Its Work of Mercy-
Anyone who wishes to know the extent of the Jewish
tragedy should visit the headquarters of the Hebrew Im-
migrant Aid Society or the National Refugee Service in
New York City. These institutions swarm with applicants
for aid. Truly there is a major dislocation of people today,
and a symbol of the new migrations is to be found in the
plight of Jewry today. The "Voelkerwanderung" of the
days of the Visigoths, the Vandals and the Huns, is as
nothing compared to the forced expulsions of multitudes
of hapless folk in our times. If a young man wishes to
find work to do, a cause to serve, and a ionstructive ser-
vice to render, let him devote himself, if he be a Jew, to
the rehabilitation of the unhappy sons and daughters of
Israel who are seeking a new life in this country and else-
where. If youth wishes to respond to idealism, and needs
a realistic program of helpfulness, it is to be found in the
social service tasks which the advent of the refugees to
this country have imposed upon us all. Sympathy, warm-
heartediness, patience and compassion are needed in deal-
ing with the newcomers, many of whom are shell-shocked
by their experiences, and are greatly in need of every
manner of stabilization.
*
Wendell Willkie Is a Man Of True American Spirit-
The nomination of Mr. Wendell Willkie is a hearten-
ing sign, even to persons of differing political faith who
will not give him their vote. The -ew candidate of the
Republican party seems to be a man of no parochial out-
look, a fine, manly, generous-hearted, wide-visioned per-
sonality, with metropolitan experience, who knows how
to deal with all kinds of persons. It would have been a
catastrophe if the wrong type of person had been chosen
by the Republicans. To be sure, I am always of the opinion
that any man of proved political and communal leadership
is a good and true American, regardless of the identity
of the person actually nominated. It is to be hoped that
Mr. Willkie will, in the conduct of his campaign, fulfill the
high hopes which his many friends cherish for him. We
earnestly trust that Hitler will derive no comfort from


his speeches, but that it will be clear to the tyrant that
even if the Republicans win the victory next autumn.

5701: 1940 1941


A Portrait of Rashi
By DR. JACOB KOHN
The following review of Rashi, the Greatest figure
in Israel's cultural history, is presented through the
cooperation of the Board of Rabbis of Southern
California.
Nine hundred years have elapsed since Rashi's birth.
Through the vista of the centuries, through the spiritual
haze evoked by present world conflict, the Jewish people
and humanity at large still discern with love and rever-
ence the outlines of a personality great in its simplicity
and sweetly simple in its greatness.
Rabbi Solomon ben Isaac was born imn the city of
Troyes in the year 1040 in a community and in a cultural
environment noted for its spiritual depth rather than
for its intellectual scope. The scientific and philosophic
spirit characteristic of he great Arabic civilization in
which the Jews of Spain and northern Africa lived was
almost completely absent. Great Talmudic schools, how-
ever, flourished in southern Germany and northern
France as well as in the province of Champaigne which
had already produced great personalities from whom
Rashi was destined to draw his learning and his inspira-
tion. The great Rebbenu Gershorn, he who had issued the
ban against polygamy and whose decrees made him an
authority among the contemporary Jews of Germany, was
the head of a flourishing school of Talmudic thought de-
voted mainly to establishing the correct text of Bible and
Talmud and which was productive of Talmudical notes
and commentaries rich in variant readings of the anci-
ent versions. Three of the great disciples of this school,
Jacob ben Yakar, Isaac ha-Levi and Eliezer ben Isaac,
were among the master from whom Rashi received his -
great legacy of Talmudic learning.
The legendary history of Rashi, an evidence of the
love and esteem which motivated popular imagination,
would be more copious and more romantic, but in a cer-
tain sense less appealing, than the realistic story of his
life. In this legendary epic several cities, especially Worms,
vie for the honor of his birthplace. It is rich in fables of
miracles vouchsafed his mother and centering about his
nativity. It presents us with a breath-taking Odyssey in
which Rashi travels all over the world, to Babylon, to
Cairo, to European centers like Prague, and depicts him as
the master of many languages and many sciences. It
erases the boundaries of time as it ignores those of space.
Undismayed by anachronisms it insists that he held con-
verse with Maimonides in Egypt. In truth, however, Rashi
were those of the classical and medieval Hebrew authori-
on both sides of the Rhenish boundary and returned to
Troyes to write and teach. The languages he mastered
were those of the classical and medieval Hebrew authori-
ties and the French vernacular which the Jews in the
region spoke and which he occasionally used as a medium
for explaining difficult words and phrases in the sources
upon which he was to throw so much light.
A Pre-eminent Commentary
What strikes the historian who would evaluate the
genius of his personality is that the Jewish people as a
whole view Rashi with a warmth and an intimacy vouch-


safed to few eminent scholars. For generations Jewish
students learned to know him through his commentary
on the Bible Many were the great linguists and exegetes
w ho undertook an explanation of the sacred text. The
commentary of Rashi, however, soon became pre-eminent
as a pedagogic instrument to the understanding of the


Bible. It contained just that balance of imaginative and
Mid-rashic material with simple and clear comment on
the literal sense of scriptures, that the young student,
reading it, found both his love and understanding of the
text enhanced thereby. Few were the Jewish schoolboys
in recent centuries who were not admitted to the inner
citadel of Torah through the alluring gateway of the
Rashi commentary.
His great masterpiece, however, the one which tested
both his genius and his learning, was his vast and com-
prehensive commentary to the Talmud. Only a main in
whom humility and genius were equally blended could
have produced that vast work without which no edition
of the Talmud is complete. His mind penetrated so com-
pletely the vast field of Jewish jurisprudence and the
intricate argumentation establishing Jewish law and prac-
tice that hd made it his own. His spirit held in solution the
whole vitality and richness of Talmudic lore. He was pos-
sessed, however, with what we today would call a scien-
tific abjectivity by virtue of which a truly great man
never permits his personality to distort the field which
he studies. This abjectivity is more closely akin to the re-
ligious virtue of perfect humility than is customarily ack-
nowleged. The intellectual accompaniment of the quality
of meekness is precisely the reluctance to distract atten-
tion from the object to the self which manipulates it.
Rashi permitted his own personality to dissolve in the
vastness of his material. He gathered together the frayed
threads of Talmudic discussion. He occasionally supplied
missing data from other sources. With great economy of
word and phrase he throws light upon obscure passages.
The student seldom feels as though he were sitting
at the feet of a greater master when reading the common-
tary. It is rather as though an older fellow student were
holding a young tyro by the hand and leading him
through the mazes and labyrinths of a great subject
which the former had already been privileged to cover.
The student was put at ease when he found Rashi himself
stating with becoming modesty, "This I do not under-
stand?" or "I am not certain that this explanation is cor-
rect," or again with shrinking self-effacement; "Thus
have I heard from my master." The center of attention
was never on Rashi, but on the text which with Rashi's
guidance he was now capable of understanding.
"Human" Decisions
The deep human sympathy which motivated Rashi
is particularly evident in many of his decisions concerning
Jewish law and practice. This is too vast a field to cover
in an article. Let me only give two examples from differ-
ent fields of religious life. The question arose as to the
readmittance to the Jewish fold of such as had become
apostate through force of circumstances. In every Euro-
pean country from time to time there were those out-
bursts of fanaticism which threatened Jewish life and
well-being unless the Jew accepted the protection of the
Church through some formal conversion. Rashi advises
that the penitent shall be received back into the fold
without the embarrassment of the whole ritual by which
those of other faiths were admitted to the communion of
Israel. Rashi and the Jews of France and Germany were
notd for their punctiliousness in all ritual questions and
especially for their rigidity in the maintenance of all


forms and ceremonials of prayer. It is therefore very il-
luminating when Rashi declares that the devout many in-
terrupt their prayers, the grace after meals in this case,
to feed a hungry animal who, according to Jewish prac-
tice, should have been given his meal before the family
sits down to dinner. I mention these examples to show the

Though Rashi's achievements were almost exclu-
sively in the Jewish fold, though he did not, like Mai-
monides and the great luminaries of the Spanish-Jewish
epoch, deal with matters of general culture, with phil-
osophy or astronomy, with medicine or mathematics, he
nevertheless played an important part in the development
of European -thought. No great mind, though it run in
definite channels, can fail to overflow their banks and to
fertilize fields that lie beyond his ken.

ence of his studies was profound in the University of Er-
furt when Martin Luther entered his name as a student
and in the year 1501. Thus, Luther's knowledge of He-
brew was rooted in the tremendous learning of Rashi.
There was indeed a medieval jingle which read, "If Lyra
had not piped, Luther had not danced." In the perspec-
tive of the centuries we might then well say that Rashi
called the tune which Lyra piped and to which Luther
danced. Back to Rashi therefore leads the. world-shaking
episode of the Protestant Reformation.

War Diary of a Belgian Refugee
By MARGUERITE GILBERT

Hitler conquers a land-and thousands are without a
home. Thousands must evacuate. Hitler marches on
-and many thousands flee-many, many thousands
-millions. Refugcges. The word begins to lose mean-
ing when it describes a situation so vast and deals
with numbers so great that we cannot comprehend
them. In this brief, simple day by day account of a
Belgian refugee is the story of those millions.-The
Editor.

Brussels, May 10-The police are searching the
houses. I must burn all correspondence written in Ger-
man. The letters I received from America went through
the Belgian censors long ago. A short time ago, a remark
about Hitler was deleted. They were anxious to observe
the neutrality. The sirens are shrieking.
Brussels. May 11-The police asked me to leave Bel-
gium and gave me "Order of Evacuation." This is a paper
allowing me to enter France. In 1914 I fled to England.
Brussels, May 12-I closed my little apartment. My
father (he was under arrest from 1914 to 1918) found,
upon his return, a bombed hole in place of his home-re-
mains in Brussels. My brother is a soldier.

Brussels, May 13-My knapsack weighs 12 kilo. I
carry a blanket on my arm. The train which was to bring
me to Paris in 5 hours is overcrowded. I must wait 24
hours.

Brussels, May 14-Filled with a thousand passen-
gers, the train departed promptly. Thirty kilometers for-
ward, the tran halts. We are given the choice: Back to
Brussels or to walk to France. The stretch-Brussels,
Mons, Paris-has been bombarded. Mons is in flames.
The skies are blood red. I joined up with a Belgian in-
fantry regiment still dressed in civil attire and marched
on toward Lille. We marched by night only because we
would be bombarded by the Nazis in the daylight. They
bombard everything that moves. The dead lie by the
roadside. No soldiers among them.

Strassengraben, May 15-I march. Since yesterday
I've eaten nothing but dry bread. I slept along the path
in the woods. Some wagons, heavily laden with trunks
and people, caught up with us and took along mother and
the children. Farmers from the villages we passed, joined
us. They too, have nothing to eat. They've already given
up everything they had.

May 16-I march. Bread and water.

May 17-I march. I slept in the cellar of a ruined


house.

May 18-On Landstrasse. We came to the border
town of Birnissert. Deserted. Further to Conde. Deserted.
Not a soul, ino bread. Twenty kilometers further to St.
Armand. A train should await us there. No train awaits


us. To Lille. 50 kilometers further. I can't stand any more.
I can't march another night. But I go on. The soles of my
shoes are worn off. The Germans will not get me. I walk
three hours. There's a train standing still in the open
field. The train is over-crowded. But still I did get into
a compartment with 30 others-the sick and the crying.
The train is bound for Paris.
May 19-Night. I am still sitting in the train. I am
hungry. The train halts every 10 meters. The Nazis bom-
bard this stretch. We travel by day, because the tracks
can't be controlled by night. Now we halt. The engine
stops, so that its lights won't be visible to the enemy
fliers; 1500 people are still and have nothing to eat, no
milk for the children.
May 20-On the train. Three nights en route. We
get out often to search for food in the ruined and burning
houses. We find no bread. The train won't go to Paris.
It is going to the coast to Boulogne. I recall that I had
packed in some sugar. I share my treasure. My share is
two pieces. We find some red wine. We try to drink it. It
makes us sick. I cry in my sleep.
May 21-An hour from Boulogne. We alight and milk
stray cows that roam near the tracks. The children can't
digest the warm fresh milk. We don't ride to Boulogne.
Calais, May 21-We camp at the railroad station. We
can't go on because we are too weak. I will ride another
night. I found a train that goes to Boulogne. In normal
times the trip took 11.2 hours from Calais to Boulogne.
The Holy Scrolls of a Brussels synagogue travel with me.
May 22-On a boat in the canal. The stretch from
Boulogne to Paris is interrupted. Amiens is supposed to
be in Nazi hands. The greater part of Boulogne has been
destroyed by bombs. I eat stonehard zwieback. I go to
the harbor. Sailors help me board a boat bound for Havre.
It is a sand transport boat from Ostend. There are six
sailors, 13 women and 8 children aboard. The women
sleep in three-hour shifts. The men don't sleep. We are
all seasick.
May 23-We approach a mine. A sailor shoots at the
mine. The mine explodes. We have no bread or drinking
water. Because of German airplanes we take a zig-zag
course.
Havre, May 24-A motorboat leads us into the har-
bor. I go to the railroad station. No one wants to take my
Belgian money. I change my sole English pound. At 7
o'clock in the evening the train leaves for Paris.
Paris, May 26-I travelled with 1500 refugees. The
Red Cross took care of us. At midnight I arrived in dark-
ened Paris. I took a taxi to G. W. and to H. J. Both are
separated from their wives and put in concentration
league. Both have been rendering their service to the
Finch Postal system. A policeman brought me to a meet-
ing hall at the Pere Lachaise. Five hundred persons tried
to sleep there on the straw. The men snore. The children
scream. The women cry. It smelled of the horses from
whose stalls the straw came.
Paris, May 27-I have slept for 24 hours. A woman


with whom I lived in 1937 when I attended the Interna-
tional Exposition has given me shelter. I can't eat. I
can't even stand upright.
May 28-The restaurants are too expensive. I live on
milk and eggs. I can't look at bread. I will try to get to
Southern France, and I will look for work there.

France bodes ill for the illustrious author of "Paris Ga-
zette" and other great novels. When Feuchtwanger was in
New York, in 1933, he spoke of the dangers to which he
would be subjected on his return to Germany and it hap-
pened as he anticipated. Later he took up his residence in
Paris and there wrote his latest book, telling of the life
of the victims who were really dead, though they were
still twitching, and seemingly alive. In other words, their
life had ended in Germany though they went through the
motions of living after their escape. And now the Nazi
juggernaut has caught up with them and they are being
flattened into extinction. The world awaits news of
Feuchtwanger. We can only pray and hope that the little
man in the big baggy trousers, as I remember him from
his visit to my Temple, will not be imprisoned in a con-
centration camp and eventually destroyed.

Georges Mandel Remaincd A True Patriot to the End- -
Georges Mandel, whose whereabouts are now un-
known, is a great hero of the last days of the French op-
position to Hitler. British papers pay a glowing tribute to
him, and regard him as a true disciple of Clemenceau,
whose right-hand man he was imn the days of the First
World War. A Londcn dispatch written for the North
American News Alliance by Elie J. Bois, former editor of
Le Petit Parisian, has said of George Mandel: he was "the
soul of France," in the days before the capitulation, fight-
ing with "intelligence, stubborness and patriotism for
faith to an ally and war to the end for the honor of France.
He animated the discouraged, inspired the brave, and
shamed the weak. He downed every poor argument, he
forestalled all maneuvers To M. Chautemps, who
wanted Prime Minister Churchill to give the Cabinet a
release for a separate peace this brave Frenchman replied.
"It is not done; we must honor our undertaking .. "


Leon Blum Risked Life To Strengthcn France's
Resistance-
Hein Pol, writing in the "Nation" has told of the
Guilt of the French Right, and the French Left in the
debacle which permitted the Nazis to enslave the country.
His reference to Leon Blum surely does not bear out the
criticism of him by former President Hoover, and others:
"Early last September," says "Pol," "the friends of Leon
Blum were afraid he might be assassinated by members
of his own party because, though basically a pacifist, ,he
had come to be a defender of Realpolitik, realizing that
the fight against Nazism was inevitable." Pol points out
that widespread Pacifism was in large measure respon-
sible for contributing to France's breakdown, and that
the Right welcomed the coming of the Nazis as protec-
tion against Labor difficulties. History, we hope, will ren-
der its verdict with accuracy, and show that Blum, who
was in power for only a short time, saw clearly that
France needed protection and preparation against the im-
pending war with the Nazis. In the meantime, however,
even Jews are echoing the current canard to the effectthat


Blum betrayed France to Russia, and thus to Germany.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let Coughlin and


his crew speak thus, if they will, but historians, whether
Jews or non-Jews, must estimate the situation aright.
Blum is said to be in Vichy still, not having escaped, ac-
cording to latest reports, to England.

Do Modern Synagogues Give Us A Sensq of "Holiness"-
Do modern synagogues give to Jews a sense of "holi-
ness" Most of them do not, and for a number of reasons.
Chief among these is the fact that worshippers do not
enter the synagogue in a prayerful mood. They expect
the synagogue to do everything for them, and they are
ready to give little of themselves in return. Moreover,
there is an informal spirit about the synagogue, which is
not characteristic of Catholic and Episcopalian churches.
The more intimate Protestant groups are like the syna-
gogues in their desire to bring religion closely and directly
to the attention of the worshipper. Though Jews have a
reputation for being a people of prayer, and though they
have through their poets created the Psalms, the modern
Jew is looking for a religious emotionalism of which he
is incapable. A prominent clothing manufacturer-very
generous in his charities, and very sympathetic as a hu-
man being-remarked that the synagogue "bored him";
the Rabbis could not interest him. No one for a moment
should expect the synagogues to be Music Hall entertain-
ment with a new program every week or two; religion in
its liturgy is repetitious, and worshippers must expect it
to be thus. They must have "Sitzfleisch" and be willing to
sit quietly for hymns and sermons. Only thus can organ-
ized religion survive, and only thus can it influence the in-
dividual, and give him a sense of pause in a busy and
harassing world.


An Answer to a Brooklyn

Lawyer on Aid to Britain

An Answer to a Brooklyn Lawyer on Aid to Britain-
In a recent sermon I referred to "beloved Britain,"
lamenting the fact that a great tragedy awaits the Bri-
tish at the hands of Hitler's armies. My mail has brought
me a letter from a Jewish lawyer in Brooklyn, filled with
viterpaion and abuse. Gra noted that Great Britain has
often times sinned against the people of Israel, I refuse
to believe that in this hour of her gravest peril, we should
carp at her, refuse whatever moral encouragement we
American Jews can offer, and in any way embarras her.
Even if Great Britain should successfully withstand the
siege by the Nazis and should emerge relatively victori-
ous, Palestine Jewry will still be subjected to humiliations.
But this should not prevent us from extending the hand
of sympathy to threatened Albion. A defeat for the Bri-


tish would mean his victory iin the United States, and it
will go hard with freemen and Jews everywhere if Naz-
ism triumphs.

Tribute Paid Catholic Priest
Tribute will be paid to a Catholic priest on the At-
lantic seaboard for his heroism and good will towards
the Jews of the community in which he lives, as a result
of a news item in a magazine, that led a powerful group
of Jewish leaders on the Pacific coast to do him homage.
Several months ago, Father William V. Dunne, of
Passaic, N. J., risked his life trying to save a Torah from
Temple Emanuel, which was ablaze. The National Jewish
Monthly, published by B'nai Brith, reported the unusual
incident, amnd B'nai Brith leaders on the Pacific Coast re-
solved to honor the priest after they read of his action.
District No. 4, comprising all the Pacific Coast states,
appropriated a sum as a cash contribution to the Mount
Carmel Guild, a charity they discovered was close to
Father Dunne's heart, and of which he is Moderator.
In addition, the Jewish community there sent Father
Dunne the following letter:
"In an age when so many of the children of men have
turned their faces from God and are pursuing hatred,
falsehood and strife, your act of sanctification bears wit-
ness that God created man in His image and that His
command that we love one another has not perished from
the earth May the day not be distant when brother-
hood and love such as you have exemplified will fill the
earth even as the waters cover the sea."

Sherwood Blasts Lindbergh,
Ford, for "Traitorous Views"
NEW YORK-Robert Sherwood, playwright and
World War veteran, this week denounced Col. Charles
Lindbergh and Henry Ford as leading exponents of a
"traitorous point of view," in a radio address broadcast
over Canadian and British hook-ups.
"In my country today," Mr. Sherwood said, "there
are important men who have succumbed to the demoraliz-
ing degenrative influence of Hitlerism. They are chiefly
men who worship the machine. They have seen the enor-
mous output of German factories, the result of the toil
of laborers who have no right to organize or even speak,
no choice as to where they shall work, or for what wages.
They have seen the ultimate in regimentation, and they
like it, and wish that we could have the same system over
here.
"A Great Industrialist"
"I don't need to say much about Ford. A great in-
dustrialist, the genius of the assembly line, he has too
often revealed that, outside of his own factories, he is a
profoundly stupid man.
"But Lindbergh is to me a tragic example of mental
aberration. He is a man spiritually diseased. He might so
well have became of tremendous nationalandinternat'onal
value. A year ago he was working where he belonged, in
Washington, using his considerable technical knowledge
and skill in the furthering of our defense.
"Pleads Hitler's Cause"
"But with the outbreak of war last September, he
quit the service, so he could devote himself to pleading
Hitler's cause. His opinions now are just as unpopular


with real Americans as are the men from whom he gets
them-Hitler, Goering and Goebbels."
The feelings of this country, Mr. Sherwood opined
are not expressed by Ford, Lindbergh or any other "boot-
lickers of Hitler." but by President Roosevelt and Wendell
Willkie.


I'm Glad I'm An American
When Freedom's but a filmy ghost,
And rulers scorn a peaceful plan-
I proudly claim my rightful boast: *
That I am an American.
When men would kill for pow'r and strength
To suit an egotistic will,-
In madness go to any length,
Forget the words, Thou Shalt Not Kill.
Forgetting how, not long ago,
When resting, weary soldiers might
Have smokes and chatter with the foe
Then bitterly resume the fight.
Grievances ? These men had none-
Still forced to murder one another,
To wild a hated, banal gun .
A weapon used to kill a brother.
And safe behind his desk he sits .
The well-fed trouble instigator;
While men blow out each other's wits,
How smug, this evil agitator!
Progress? Where? We're just the same
As cannibals, or men in caves;
Subservient to mad acclaim-
To war, but cringing, abject slaves.
Machines, devices, new inventions-
Apparent signs of man's advance;
And while we probe the third dimension,
Dictators lead a merry dance.
What good's a 'plane, a 'phone, a car
A streamlined locomotive's roar?
The forward march of life we mar
Until we banish senseless war.
In ties of mad autocracy
When others scorn a peaceful plan,
How precious is Democracy-
Thank God I'm an American.

Weizmann's Faith Remains
LONDON-A call to the Jews, "above all others" to
be courageous and not to lose faith was sounded by Dr.
Chaim Weizmann, addressing a private meeting of mem-
bers of the Jewish Agency Executive, the Zionist General
Council, and British Zionist leaders.
Dr. Weizmann concluded his address by the affirma-
tion of his belief that this war would not be fought by
weapons alone. He expressed his conviction that the spirit
of the peoples now oppressed in Europe would assert it-
self and break through the mechanized chains which are
now holding them down.
"In that struggle," he declared, "we, the Jewish peo-
ple, have a part to play, for we, from our history, know
what is indomitable in the soul of man. It befits us above
all others to be courageous and not to lose faith."
Dr. Weizmann declared it was encouraging to see


the Yishuv, "this valiant group, beset by difficulties and
enemies on all sides," continue with their work of build-
iing and planting. "That," he said, "is the message that
must be conveyed to all Jews in free countries. It is that
spirit which must be instilled into that other great out-
post of the Jewish people-the United States. The Jewish
people will carry on."

Theodor Herzl The Man!

The Zionist movement has, during the course of its
history, raised up many men of exceptional calibre-a
tribute to the idealism and dynamic qualities of the cause
they espoused-but head and shoulders above his breth-
ren stood Theodor Herzl, and the test of time has en-
hanced his name and achievements. It was the late Chief
Rabbi Hermann Adler, a political opponent, who declared
at Herzl's death that he was the greatest Jew since Moses
Maimonides, eight centuries ago. The course of events
has confirmed this estimate of Theodor Herzl's place in
history.
The factors which brought Herzl to the foremost
place in contemporary Jewish life were both personal
and due to causes which, incipient in his early days, have
since come to fuition with fatal effect on the Jewish stat-
us in the world. This king among men who, by his per-
sonal imagination, rallied the scattered atoms of the
Jewish race into a cohesive organization, appeared like
a comet on the Jewish horizon in the last decade of the
nineteenth century, and, after a public activity of about
eight years, died at the age of 44 of a broken heart. He
passed away, leaving a luminous ideal which has guided
his people amidst the darkness that has enshrouded them.
He represented the efflorescence of Israel of the lat-
ter days, noble in mien, in stature and bearing, majestic
in his conception of the solution of the Jewish tragedy,
the end of which is, alas, not yet. He evoked a devoted
loyalty as no Jewish leader before or since, and it was
the mere sight of him that made one realize why princes
had enlisted the very lives of men who had freely elected
to serve them.
It was ino sudden inspiration that led Herzl to pro-
pound his ideal of the Jewish people living a free national
life on its own soil. He had come of Sephardi stock, which
more than aLny other branch of the Jewish race had pro-
duced martyrs and mystics who had dreamed of Israel
Restored; in his youth his vivid imagination saw that
vision and, unconscious to himself, it germinated in his
mind until, as if by a revelation, he delivered his pro-
phetic message to the world.
Theodor Herzl's early years were passed amidst the
storm and stress of that Austrian Pan-Germanism which
has culminated into the National Socialism of the Austri-
an Adolf Hitler. Schonerer, Wolf and above all, Lueger,
the notorious Burgomaster of Vienna, then dominated
the scene, and this virulent anati-Semitism left their im-


Chinese Refugee Gives to Jewish

Refugees "Token" To Christianity
An old Chinese farmer, caught in the path of war,
lost home, tools and equipment, and became a refugee.
A missionary loaned him $20.00, with which he bought a
horse and cart, and began hauling goods for hire. The
countryside was still dangerous and he made good wages
for his work. Soon he had the unbelievable sum of $80.00.
He went to the missionary and repaid the twenty


dollars, he had borrowed, "Now," he said, "I have always
given a tithe of my earnings to the Lord. Our church is
broken up and scattered. What shall I do with my eight
dollars ?"
"Eight?" asked the missionary. "Your tithe is only
six. The twenty was a debt." But the old farmer did not


press on the sensitive soul of young Herzl. The decisive
effect of the Dreyfus Affair, of which he was an eye-wit-
ness, brought about his conversion from the assimilated
cosmopolitan to the Jewish nationalist, from the German
feuilletonist to the Hebrew prophet. He foresaw from
the Jewish standpoint, as practically no one else in the
general world, that the regime which had brought about
the civil emancipation of the Jews was nearing its end.
He believed that so-called Christian Europe would not
only welcome if the Jews chose to leave it, but that, if this
were effected by the initiative of the Jews themselves,
would bring about the parting between "hosts" and
"guests" with mutual goodwill. It, unfortunately, turned
out otherwise. His correspondence with the Rothschilds
and the record of his conversations, real and imaginary,
with them are among the most extraordinary documents
of the time; and his dark prognostications of the fate of
the Rothschilds, which might then have appeared fan-
tastic to them, have, with dramatic suddenness, in cer-
tain respects, come only too true.
Theodor Herzl's "Diaries" reveal a mentality like
that of the Prophet Ezekiel, who, in his exile on the River
Kebar, saw divine visions of the return of his captive peo-
ple to their land purified by their tribulations. Herzl, too,
was no mere nationalist, materialist or chauvinist .in his
objective. He was a cultural humanist with wide inter-
national sympathies, and the new social structure advo-
cated by him in the future Jewish State was of a remark-
ably advanced nature, for he, like his forbears of old, be-
lieved in human brotherhood, in social justice and right-
eousness.
It was because he was an Anglophile, with a profound
faith in the fundamental sense of British fair play. and
good faith, that he was convinced, as he declared at the
Fourth Zionist Congress iin London in 1900, that England,
the traditional friend of the Jews, would understand thyr
aims of the Zionist Movement. If he had attained the age
of 80 and lived today, he would, in view of-recent events,
have been a disillusioned and broken main, or his faith
in the ultimate destiny of his people, which had originally
caused him to take up the leadership of their cause, might
have sustained him in these dark hours. But the gods
loved him, and he passed away in his mature manhood
with his full mental vigor, leaving a personal example and
a national achievement that will remain the precious heri-
tage of his people for all time.
-Zionist Review.


know enough mathematics to figure that out. All he
knew was that first he had nothing and then he had
eighty. Obviously eight should go as tithe. The mission-
ary refused to give him any advice. "You know of many
needs," he said. "If you pray, God will give you guidance
about it."
One day the old man came in beaming. "I have de-
cided," he said. "Our master was a Jew. I have heard
that there are many Jewish people who have been driven
out of their own country. Will you take these eight dol-


lars aind gend them somewhere where there are
Jews who need help?"
This story is vouched for by the Church Committee
for China Relief, which includes among its members
Rabbi S. D. Goldenson, and which has its national head-
quarters at 105 East 22nd Street, New York City.

Tiny Group Making Propaganda

For Stalin and Communism

Hitler's speech referring to the Jewish capitalist war-
mongers is couched in the same terms that have brought
him the attainment of every objective until now. Formerly
Jews were Bolsheviks; now they are .capitalists. But
whether radicals or ractionaries, they are made the tar-
get for Hitler's rage, and the endeavor to undermine
Churchill is akin to his effort to tag them with the Jewish
label. Hitler has found these tactics thoroughly useful
until now; it means to be seen whether in the case of
Britain and the United States, they will avail him. In the
meantime, a tiny group in New York City has been mak-
ing propaganda on behalf of Stalin. Apparently the handi-
work of the Communist Party of the 7th and 9th Assem-
bly Districts, a broadsheet has been issued entitled: "The
War and the Jewish People," addressed to the Jewish
People "of the Upper West Side," "Bessarabian Jews over-
flowing with Joy"; "51/2 Million Jews Liberated"; "Pale-
stine Turned into a Concentration Camp"; "Jewish Peo-
ple Want Peace." These are some of the section headings
of the screed.
"The Jewish people," says the sheet, "must first of
all learn to break away from the misleadership that
speaks in their name, the detestable leadership of their
so-called upper class which has sold out completely to the
war party. The Jewish Masses are against war. On the
Upper West Side in the recent peace petition campaign
over 7000 Jewish women spoke out against the imperial-
istic war. Join hands with labor and all anti-war forces
in the fight for Jobs, Security, Democracy and Peace.
Vote for the Peace Candidates, Earl Browder," etc. If
this document is authentic, it is undoubtedly the work of
an icnfitesimal unit, perhaps one or two individuals, who
through the publication of this literature, seen to be a
significant factor in the political life of the community.
We trust that our Gentile friends will realize that, while
many Jews are pacifists, and are just as much against
the war as some of the Gentile "isolationists," the major-
ity of the Jewish community in the United States, is prag-
matic in its approach, and wish to do nothing which will
make the task of Mr. Roosevelt more difficult, as he seeks
to halt the ravages of Hitlerism. We must not take this
Communist literature too seriously; to be sure, its net
effect is equivalent to the isolationist material which
stems from the pro-Nazi propagandists in this country,
and from the Fascist sympathizers and organizations.
But there must be no hysteria in combating this type of
agitation. Let the Rabbis speak out; let the representa-
tives of Jewry deal with this and other situations tactfully
and with statesmanship.

Israel To Defend Great Britain

With Every Sacrifice To The End
JERUSALEM.-The Jews of Palestine were called
to defend their land and the cause of Great Britain with


their "last blood," in a statement made to a press confer-
ence by Pinchas Ruttenberg to mark the inauguration of
a smaller Executive Committee of the Vaad Leumi (Jew-
ish National Council).
After explaining the reasons for tightening the Vaad
Leumi's control, Mr. Ruttenberg said to the press con-


The Fighting Jew

By DAMON RUNYON

There's a story in that paper
I just tossed upon the floor
That speaks of prejudice against the Jews.
There's a photo on the table
And a man who never figured in the news.
There's a cross upon his breast-
That's the D. S. C.
That's a memory of the war
The Croix de Guerre, the Militaire,
These too.
And there's a heart beneath the medals
That beats loyal, brave and true.
A Jew.

He is short and fat and funny
And the nose upon his face
Is about the size of bugler Dugam's horn.
But the grin that plays behind it,
Is wide and soft and sunny,
And he wore it from the day that he was born.
There's a cross upon his chest-
That's the D. S. C.
The Croix de Guerre, the Militaire
Mon Dieu!
He's a he-man out of Texas
And he's all man thru and thru,
That's Dreben,
A Jew.

Now whenever I read articles
That breathe of racial hate
Or hear arguments that hold his kind to scorn,
I always see that photo
With the cap upon the pate
And the nose the size of bugler Dugan's horn.
I see upon his breast,
The D. S. C.
The Croix de Guerre, the Militaire-
These too.
Anl I think: thank God Almighty
We will always have a few
Like Dreben
A Jew.


ference. "The fate of the Jewish people is linked with a
British victory. Therefore, the Jews are now called upon to
make every sacrifice."
Describing his recent visit to England, Mr. Rutten-


berg spoke of the profound impression made on him by
the changes which England has undergone. He felt that
it was the most remarkable metamorphosis that any
country in the world had experienced, and that as a re-
sult, unity and a sense of national responsibility had been
achieved.
"Palestine is the last fortress of Israel. It will be de-
fended with our last blood," he concluded.

Faith In Democracy Vital

To American Defense
By EDGAR J. BURMAN
National Commander, Jewish War Veterans
The Jewish War Veterans of the United States met
in Boston on August 28th for their forty-fifth annual en-
campment in a time of crisis. Despotism once again is on
the march and man's freedom and security and religious
faith are menaced as perhaps never before in history.
Looking into the future, one cannot help but recall the
past. World War No. 2 inevitably brings up recollections
of World War No. 1. The very graves of our American
dead in France have been plowed up by the shells of the
Nazi Blitzkrieg. A cynicism has come over many people
who formerly believed that our American dead had not
died in vain, that democracy was reborn in 1918.
But they are mistaken who feel disillusionment in the
sneers of the agressor at those American boys who died
to make the world safe for democracy. Hysteria and panic
are the first effect of the totalitarian onslaught-indeed,
hysteria and panic are the first objectives of all anti-
democratic movements. When we sit back and view the
situation calmly and dispassionately, many of us see a
different picture. The world today is essentially no more
unsafe for democracy than it was in 1917. Freedom was
under attack then as it is today iin a greater degree, and
although the aggressor may be superior for the moment
in planes and bombs, it is the defenders who hold what
was proven in 1918 to be a more vital superiority-a su-
periority in ideals and in liberty, and also in resources.
Man's memory is often poor; the picture was dark indeed
in those days, perhaps even darker than it is today, and
many Americans who remember the first World War as
we do, are confident that the forces which respect God and
religion and the rights of man will be victorious over the
standardized robots of godless destruction.
But let us look at our own domestic picture. America
is as much opposed to going to war today as it was a
year ago, but negative isolationism has changed to the
positive spirit of national preparedness. This is a healthy
indication. By it the people of this nation are demonstrat-
ing that no matter what temporary damage may be done
to liberty and democracy abroad, we are determined to
preserve and strenghten our ideals of liberty and justice
and to disperse every attack agamst these ideals here. The
spirit of preparedness has come'ubon us suddenly in the
last two months and it is important for all Americans

The Return of Coughlin
The air waves have been unusually pleasant through
the Summer. The hate vendor, Father Charles E. Cough-
lin, has been inactive since June apparently because he
could not raise the money to continue his broadcasts
through the Summer months.
Now the radio priest has announced that he will re-
sume his weekly talks the second Sunday in October. He
will discuss, "among other things," the principles and
personalities in the presidential campaign. It will be re-


called that he was an active participant in the 1936 cam-
paign, when he backed Lemke. At that time he promised
that if Roosevelt were elected he would withdraw from
broadcasting, but the lure of influencing listeners through
honeyed words proved too strong for him and he broke
his promise, returning to the microphone before long.


to realize that if our objectives are to be attained, if
America is to be kept secure against attack, this country
must be prepared not only in armaments but in morals
as well. Military preparedness is the job of the President,
of the Congress, of admirals, generals and technicians.
but moral preparedness the strengthening of our intan-
gible American ideals and institutions-that is the job-
indeed the patriotic duty, of every American irn every
walk of life.
The basis of this vital moral preparedness lies in
America's democratic unity-the unity on common ground
of every American group, of every origin and creed. Just
as Americans of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish faiths
fought in Flanders, not for Catholic, Protestant or Jewish
liberties, but rather for the preservation of American
liberties, so too these religious groups today must work
together for democratic unity on the basis of moral pre-
paredness.
Our unity must be impervious to the methods of hate
breeding, Trojan horse elements. Two Americans work-
ing together are more effective than two million Ameri-
cans at war with each other at the behest of Trojan horse
disunity. It is true that the past several months have wit-
nessed a violent revulsion of public opinion against those
individuals and groups who would undermine our liber-
ties by means of group hatred-specifically, by means of
anti-Semitism as a smoke screen to conceal their real anti-
American purposes. The demogogue is not a popular fig-
ure in America just now.
We must keep it that way. For we have seen country
after country in Europe fall before the aggressor, not pri-
marily because of military inferiority but rather because
of popular disunity and betrayal from within.
The lesson of France is that military defences must
be backed up by high civilian morale. There can be no Nazi
Blitzkrieg in this country if we keep morally prepared
and make this country unsafe for totalitarian aggression,
whether it be against the body or against the spirit. This
thought must be driven home to every American through-
out our daily life.
The President has called for 50,000 planes, but we
who know the methods of the aggressor tell you that
50,000 planes are weak indeed unless they are backed by
the common will to freedom, cooperation and internal
friendship of 130,000,000 Americans.
Above all, let us avoid hysterical witch-hunting-for
this too aids the aggressor by creating confusion. Let us
keep calm, and with faith in God aind our democracy we
may feel confident that soon the future of liberty will
have been assured. Meanwhile, our duty is not so much
to ourselves as to our neighbors and to America!


But this is not 1936. It is 1940, a year of war and a
year when the American people have little patience with
those who would distrust it unity. From reports in trade
publications it would seem that Coughlin is finding it
difficult to get any large lumber of stations to broadcast
his talks. The code of the National Association of Broad-
casters bars such hate-mongering as Coughlin's.
How will Coughlin use his influence in this campaign?


His paper, Social Justice, supported Wendell L. Willkie's
candidacy, but that was before Willkie came out forth-
rightly against race hatred-which Coughlin is spreading.
Coughlin's political gyrations are unpredictable, but one
thing is sure -Americans realize the situation is too
serious to give attention to the Royal Oak rabble-rouser.
