(Special to The Ohio Jewish Chronicle) NEW YORK.—Plans of tremendous magnitude, for the saving of as many as possible of the vast mass of suffering, starving, freezing, sick and naked Jews of the Ukraine have been laid before the Joint Distribution Committee by Dr, Joseph Rosen, whose seeding-program has saved the 'Volga peasants., Dr. Ro sen is returning to the Ukraine to set . into operation these projects which are the result of nearly a whole ye.ir's study of conditions in that country. ,Dr. Rosen has seen all of the horrors of the Ukraine, has been an eye witness of the terrible Jewish tragedy in that country. Hp has been "in the field" . struggling to save. He went close to the border-line of death himself, and for weeks his life was despaired of -when in the midst of his tremendous labors he was alllicted with typhus, Famed as an agricultural scientist be¬ fore he went to Russia for the Joint Distribution Committee, he added, tre¬ mendously to his fame by the epoch, making revolution he affected in Rus. .sian' agricuture by the introduction of American Indian corn as a substitute for wheat in the Volga districts which due to him are now reasonably safe¬ guarded against future droughts and famine. He returned to this country. . worn with the struggle that nearly de stroyed him. hoping that he would be relieved from further labor in that vast sea of misery. But when it was made clear to him that in'the opinion of the Joint Distribution Co^nmittee, it was his duty to put his plans into operation, he did not hesitate for a moment to give his consent.

No 'organization is- powerful enough to defeat the grim enemy men¬ acing the Jews of Russia. The only question is how many can be saved, and it is impossible to save all. That is true of palliative relief, and equally true of reconstructive Hid, according'to Dr. Rosen. Hunger Not Stilled "We. must face the facts," Dr. Rosen said.

T, A.)—Declaring that "No person who is false to. his own nationality can be true to America," Vice-President Calvin Coolidge gave impetus to the "Join Week" campaign Vvhich was started yesterday by the Friedlander Educational Conference, aided by the Jewish Education Associa. tion. In a letter which was received by Judge Otto A.

Dangers to America "One df the dangers to America is that those who come here will break with their past. People need something to which they can tic. They need that Obedience which is only born of rever¬ ence. The sentiment of reverence comes only from knowledge. There is room in our country for everything that is good; there is no restraint here save againjit evil.

A section of the Temple will be set aside for the Council of Jewish Juniors, their friends and the students of the Univer- city. Dr. Jacob Tarshish will talk on "What Junior Jewry Can Accomplish." The supreme purpose of this vital organization is to become a link, forged in tho marvelous chain of Jewish History; believ¬ ing in America and loyal to iti. destiny; and to make them¬ selves intelligent, happy Jews, and in consequence also better citizens of America nnd broader human beings.

"It is our foremost intention," Mr. Hapgood writes, "to show that the fight against the Jcws^did not stand alone and cannot stand alone. From the very opening of the series we have offered proof of the close connection between Ford's campaign against the Jews and the campaign of the Russian monarch¬ ists against the Jews. For the same reason we have stressed the inevitable- ness with which the Ford campaign against the Jews developed into a cam¬ paign against the liberals."

Ottenheimer of Louisville, Ky., Na¬ tional Chairman of the Committee on Civic and Communal Affairs of, the Council of Jewish' Women, was the principal speaker at Kentucky's state¬ wide demonstration in the cause of "No More War." Her -address created a tremendous impression in view of its earnest presentation and its analysis of the world's failure to learn the lessons of war. Mrs. Ottenheimer made the following declarations in the course of her address: "This turmoil that we see in all the civilized >vorld today is the result of a world war. It is what always follows all wars. A short time ago I heard Lady Astor, that much-quoted, much beloved, sterling, American-English M P. say: 'You can't turn hell loose on earth and expect to find paradise at the other end.' '". ;V« NEW YORK. —A statement issued by the National headquarters of the Palestine Foundation Fund, 50 Union Square, announces that Colonel Josiah Wedgwood, M. V., ;'d. S. O., vice presi¬ dent of the British Labor Party, is sail¬ ing tomorrow, Sept. 28, on the Carma- nia, and wili arrive in New York Oct. 5 to take part in a campaign for the fund which aims to finance the development of Palestine as a Jewish Homeland. Colonel Wedgwood is an Outstanding figure in the British Parliament and, with the growing strength of the uibor Party, is looked upon by many as one who is destined to play a considerable role in the British policies of the near future. He is regarded as an authority on British foreign and colonial affairs. And is expected to explaui the policy of Great Britain in its administration of the Palestine Mandate recently con¬ firmed by the Leiigue of Nations. Colonel Wedgwood is a member of a . well known Staffordshire family. He served during the South African war and distinguished himself by his gallant conduct. He entered Parliament as a member of Newcastle-under-Lyme iu ISOO, and soon attracted attention by his vigor anjl courage. He was always to the front whei^ there was any need to defend popular rights. During the World 'War he was very active, taking part ill the fighting in Antwerp, France, the Dardanelles, and East Africa. On two occasicms he'was mentioned in dis¬ patches. He ranked as a Comniandcr of the Royal Naval-Voluntary Reserve. In 191G he visited America to see Col¬ onel House in order to urge the claims of the Jewish people to Palestine. In his speeches he has pointed out that he belongs to a section of the English peo¬ ple wliich, from its early acquaintance with the Bible, has a natural sympathy with Jewish hopes. He is vice chairman of the Labor Party and chiefly promi¬ nent in Parliamentary business in rela¬ tion to foreign and colonial subjects. The treatment of the colored races in the wide areas of Africa, which are now coming under mandates given to Great Britain, and the protection of these races from pommercial exploitation, has become one of the objects dear to him. With regard to Palestine, he has fre¬ quently expressed the view that with the Jews restored to that country they will be in a position to obtain justice, first of all for themselves, and then for all men. Colonel Wedgwood is reputed to be a speaker ol great force, and is scheduled to visit a large number of cities in the United States, where he'will-address meetings in the interests of the Palestine Foundation Fund. In Deepest Reverence "In deepest reverence, I acknowledge that never did lads go forth wifli better intent and purpose at heart, than in¬ spired our boys who lie in Flanders Fields, and those who were spared to return to us. Our voices and our hearts are attuned to them in love and in thanksgiving. But now, when results of the war are being felt more and more by the nations, have you not copie to realize that war, as a legalized institu¬ tion, as an ideal, is a wrong ideal; that blood and might as answer to dispute are wrong preachment, that human-kind cannot idealize brute-force without breaking down many of its best ethical standards? "The fault is not a fault of this age, or of the past generation, but of thou¬ sands of years of wrong ideals, df feel¬ ing that might must prove right, of lack of understanding. The fault will be a fault of this age, if we continue to en¬ joy that peace-time state of coma that will make it possible for war to continue. Each generation adds its story to that structure we call civilization. What will you permit your story to be? No Moses to Lead Us "Why do we continue to have war? Because for centuries there has been no Moses to lead us out of the wilderness. Because of ourselves. Because we have been too well satisfied with our own well-being, our comfort. Because for centuries we have been too willing to let someone else do our own thinking, our own acting. Because we have been wait- (Concluded on page. 8.) (Special to Ohio Jewish Chronicle.) MOSCOW.—(J. C. B. Mail Service). David A. Brown of Detroit, National Director in the campaign in America last winter for European relief, has ar rived in Moscow after an inspection trip through Poland. Speaking of the relief work in East em Europe, Mr. Brown said: "The Hoover organization has been abso lutely fair and has distributed its relief everywhere without regard to race or creed. The Jews of. Poland made this perfectly clear to me. I travelled all through Congress Poland, East and West Galacia and in the Wilna section and nowhere did I hear a single com¬ plaint, of discrimination, There is a marvellous appreciation on the part of the Jews wherever I have been for the breadth of view and the absolute im¬ partiality of the American Relief Ad ministration. And -I rejoice in the fact that the Joint Distrjibution' Committee, which controls the disbursement of our funds abroad, is carrying on its feeding porgram in the Ukraine along exactly the same broad lines. "I believe, because I was repeatedly told by the Poles themselves, that the A. R. A. work in Poland has save'd the day for the people of that country. The American help did more than merely feed the starving and clothe the naked; it lifted the country out of the terrible depression into which it had fallen, and gave the people the will to live. . j^ommittce'to wind up the entire quota by the end of'next week.-^our coopera¬ tion to this end will therefore be highly appreciated.

URGES RESTRICTION ON IMMIGRATION Congressman Albert Johnson Says Poland Freely Gives Passports to Jews Desiring to Emigrate But Withholds Them from Others On Road to Prosperity "Poland is now on the road to pros¬ perity, and the A.

Now the Poles them¬ selves are carrying on, particularly in the line of child-feeding. They told me that they are feeding some 400,000 chil¬ dren there now. The child problem in Poland is a big one, but the Poles have learned from the American organiza¬ tions which have been working with them how it can be solved, "The Joint Distribution committee is doing some feeding, particularly in refu¬ gee kitchens, taking cqre of those peo¬ ple who are coming into thfe country^ from Russia, chiefly repatriates.

A.)-^Con¬ gressman Albert Johnson, chairman of the House immigration committee, in an /elaborate survey of the immigration re¬ strictions published in the last Congres¬ sional Record, boldly proposes cutting down the quotas of certain countries on account df the Jews. """Certain"""coiintries,"'he'"siiys', "unfoad their undesirables on America by means of the passport system. Poland has withheld passports from one class and granted passports to another, which ac¬ counts for the oddity in the statistics for the past year, showing that more Poles left American than arrived. Poles of old-time blood returned to join the new Poland and Polish Jews were freely given passports to the United States, making their number out of all pro¬ portion to the quota. In these countries, Mr. Johnson as¬ serts, political division is always racial, the majority party oppressing the minor¬ ity party, usually composed of Jewish citizens. "We do not want that division." Chairman Johnson declared, "and the safest way to prevent it is by reducing the quotas from all such countries. This will be best for all concerned- Leading It is plain from this statement that Mr. Johnson considers the Jews to be fl specifically undesirable class. Dealing In general with the present law, Mr. Johnson declares, the country seems to Want complete suspension. This is ira- jPOssible. he thinks', but proposes the ioU lowing substitute:' Reduce the percentage to 2 or Iji per cent. Restrict admissions to husband, wife or children of citizens of aliens perma¬ nently domiciled here, and exclude all others. He proposes also to perfect the literacy test by excluding "mentally in¬ ferior and emotionally unstable" and to admit students, actors and members of certain professions to temporary stay only. Their admission in excess of the quota for permanent stay as allowed at- prcsent should stop, Mr. Johnson would also change the percentage of these ad¬ missible inonthly from 20 to 10 per cent, thus eliminating confusion and hardship due to the absolute cessation of immi¬ gration from certain countries during- seven months of each year. At present some countries exhaust their quotas in five months. He finally urges that dis¬ cretion should be allowed in determine ing the nationality of the immigrant. Jewish people of the United States have other factors, besides birth, should be said this to me." 1 considered, 'Ol - 'iil ft-A? W; ¦Ml I .^?
