Biron ANTI-SEMITISM SEEN BY PELL AS PEACE PERIL YOU SHOULD KNOW . . . te Yes, It's true — the reappear¬ ance of Father Charles E. Cough¬ lin as the official leader of an aggressive "America First" movement is all set . . . It wflll be staged as soon as hostilities cease in Europe . . . Coughlin is relying on strong units of war veterans who were inculcated before they went overseas Former Congressman Hamilton Fish of New York, is scheduled to become the executive director of the Eastern isolationist forces, which are mobilizing for the 1946 Congressional elections . . , The theme song ,of their cam¬ paign will be that the United States is governed not by duly elected representatives of the people but by a group of "alien- minded" persons who are oppos¬ ed to the American Constitution. WITH THE ZIONISTS . . . te Maurice Samuel will fly to England early in April, in the interests of the Zionist cause . . . The restrained tone of Arthur Lourle's booldet "Britain and Palestine", published by the American Zionist Emergency Council, should convince the British government that the American Zionist leadership has, for better or worse, accepted the Weizmann line . . The, boolc- let issued by the Palestine Econ¬ omic Corporation about its in¬ vestment- activities in Eretz Is¬ rael Is an eye-opener ... It should be read by all who be¬ lieve that Palestine is merely an object for charitable donations. Ii'OREI(;,N AFFAIRS . . . te The State Department has confessed to a delegation of Jew¬ i.sh leaders that so fai' it has dis¬ covered no legal basis tor the punishment of Nazi crimes against the Jews of Germany . By the time this column is pul>- lished Adolf Hitler may be on his way to the Argentine, we're told by one of America's most astute predictors — and we pass it on to you for what It's worth . . . Incidentally, the full story of the incessant growth of anti- Semitism in the Argentine has not yet been told publicly . . . Those who are in the icnow reMize that the situation is very, very grave . . .¦ Reports from France are far from reassuring . . . Nazi propaganda, assiduous¬ ly spreading during the occupa¬ tion of France, succeeded ^,ln planting anti-Semitic seeds v?ry deep . . . The tragedy is that the De Gaulle government is so har¬ assed with emergency problems that it has not yet begun to counterattaclc those evil germs. FAMILY AN-GLBS . . . te Beatrice Kay, whose great- uncle was Samuel Gompers, founder of the American Feder¬ ation of Labor, has a very prac¬ tical approach to her own per¬ sonal labor problem . . . Bea¬ trice, who has a truck farm in New Jersey and finds it difficult to get regular farm labor, in¬ vites the participants and aides of her "'Gaslight Gayetles" radio show to the farm for weekends, and than hands them farm im¬ plements and persuades them to do their bit . . . The new Sig¬ mund Romberg operetta, "Up In Central Park", is a tremendous hit — but one budding actress who was supposed to make her debut in It left the cast before the show opened . . . Broadway will therefore have to wait a wljUe before It can look over Tony Eden, who In private life (ContinuM on Page 8) Jews In German Camp Get Clothes From U. S. NEW YORK (JPS) — Anti- Semitism was described as a peril for future peace by Her¬ bert C. Pell, former U. S. mem¬ ber of the International War Crimes Commission, in an exclu¬ sive interview for the Independ¬ ent Jewish Press Service. Anti- Semitism, Mr. Pell said, has served the Nazis as a method of recruitment, and may be used aa such by future aspirants to tyrannical power. "Anti-Semitism recruits the gangs and keeps them together. That's what happened in Ger¬ many. That is what can happen elsewhere", Mr. Pell said. "It is an easy enough method. The small political party, unable' to regard its followers, goads them to attack and plunder Jewish stores. Robbers are keep¬ ers. Thus the followers receive immediate renumeration and are trained ih methods of vlolerice. These acts develop in them a clisrespect for law and order, and intimidate the rest of the population. No one wants to get in the way of the gangs''. Mr. Pell's insistence on pun. ishment for all war crimes, in¬ cluding those committed by the Axis powers against their own nationals who are Jews, stems from his strong conviction that failure to punish these criminals wiil imperil the peace. "They] must be punished to prevent men, in th^ future, from, joining such movements". | With regard to division of opinion on the punishment of war iTlmrnais, Mr. Pell says "There, is no difference of opin¬ ion between corresponding class-, es tn Britain and in the United | States. The majority of people in both countries are in favor of a .strong policy. It is the legal ist mind, with preference for precendents, that is opposed to ] such a policy. This latter group refuses to face the facts". I asked Mr. Pell to comment on indemnification for the Jews, although this is not within the province of the Commission from which Mr. Pell has been removed. "Please don't ask me that", he replied, "It is almost impossible to unscramble the mess". NEW YORK (JPS)—For the first time since the beginning of the war, the Foreign Economic Administration has lifted Us blockade of shipments to enemy territory in order to permit 10,- 000 pounds of clothing collected in the United States to reach 0.200 Jews interned ih Bergen Belsen concentration camp In the province of Hanover, the World Jewish Congress announ¬ ced here.

Power, former Ca¬ nadian Minister of National De¬ fense for Air. Mr: I'ower said Jews number some 2.34 per cent ot the total RCAF personnel and 2:1)4 per cent of Canadian Jewry AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE ASUS UNITED NATIONS TO OUTLAW RACE HAH NEW YORK (JPS)—The out¬ lawing by the United Nations of "public or organized incitement against religious, ethnic and rac¬ ial groups^' was urged by the America^ewish Committee in its program, of post-war plans and clemand.s, adopted by ita Executive Committee at a meeting, held here February 4th. The Committee asked for the creation of "a permanent com¬ mission to be set up at the earl- ie-st possible time by the United Nations Conference" to- formu¬ late an International Bill pf Rights and "a course of proce¬ dure for the implementation and enforcement of the bill'. its resolutions on repatriation called for the readmisslon of "all displaced nationals" to the coun¬ try of their nationality, and of all displaced persons, "whether of foreign nationality of state¬ less", to the country of their permanent residence; also, that "no -displaced person should be compelled to return to the coun¬ try from which he was displac¬ ed" and be permitted to remain even In countries that offered temporary havens. , The Com¬ mittee also demanded the estab¬ lishment of "a Commission on Migration under the economic and Social Council of the general International Organization". The committee is to "work for the adoption a^nd ratification of an' international migration conven¬ tion" and to serve "as a tech¬ nical body to explore promis¬ ing areas in the world, with a view to developing and increas¬ ing their absorptive capacity". On Palestine, the Committee reaffirmed, its previously an¬ nounced proposals which calls for an "international trustee- .ship" until Palestine becomes "a self governing common¬ wealth", as distinct from a Jew¬ ish Commonwealth.

As long as the tate of each one of us' as individuals hangs in the balance, this play is of vital interest. It is grim gripping and carries a great emotional impact. The lime is the present. In great house near Washington, D. C. Fanny Farrelly, a spoiled and charming old lady, awalLs the arrival of her daughter Sara whom she has not .seen for eighteen years—and her daugh¬ ter's husband anri children whom she has never seen. It .is a strange and tender reunion when they arrive. There is some mystery about I'Curt Muller, which Count Teck (le Brancovis, a guest at the Farrelly house, tries to unravel. He wonders about Kurt's scar¬ red face, his broken hands, and a mysterious shabby brief case that is locked and giiarded. One evening, the Mullers find their room ransacked, the brief case opened. That is the begin, nlng of an impending drama that brings to light Kurt's work in the Antl-Fascist Movement, the Nazi spy system, and the whole Horror of Fascism. "Watch on the Rhine" is an engrossing, stirring and disturb- ing play. The Player's produc¬ tion will reach an all time high for dramatic excellence and sen¬ sitive portrayal.
