High St. at 15th-i ^^ PHRONICLE ^PO^^erving Columbus and Central Ohio Jewish Community \\7AR Vol. 2,5, No. 31 CXJIiUMBUS, OHIO, FRIDAY, AUOUST 8, 1047 Devoted to American and Jewish Ideals Strictly Confidential Tidbits From Everywhere Br Fhlneas J. Blron Leaders Traii^ing Camp For Boys and Girls ¦WATOH BEIGIN... The frgttn in Palestine Is making an all-out drive for polit¬ ical power.. .Menahem Beigln, coraman^ler of the Irgun, whose authority and power over that terrorist.. organization are ab¬ solute, is being built up as the leader of the ¦yiahviv in Pales¬ tine.., When Henry Mentor, Ex¬ ecutive Vice Chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, warned the delegates sjt the 50th Zionist convention, a few weeits ago, that it is tbe ultimate aim of the Irgun to supplant the Jew¬ ish Agency and to do so by a military coup, he was jeered by the Irgun supporters at the convention, and Rabbi Shubow., of Bosttjn insulted him public¬ ly. . .F'rom reliable information received here, however, it would seem that Montor l<new what he was talltlng about...It's not so long ago that Peter Bergson, leader of the Irgun in America, was Ivirdly ltnown...He .qtudi- ousi.v kept in the liaclcground... In those days he once confided to us; "Don't worry about my modesty—when 1 tjecide to give myself publicity I'll do it in a big way"...And he surely did.. Today he is one of the best- known figures in Jewish circles, and that's just the beginning.. Yes,. Montor knew whereof he spoke... DARK PROSPECTS... There will be no Roosevelt to stop Peroh when he ap¬ proves of an intensive anti-Se¬ mitic drive In the Argentine.. Observers who have just re¬ turned from Buenos Aires are extremely worried,. .They re¬ port that a number of anti-Se¬ mitic groups are preparing anti- .lewish demonstrations of which the bombing of the chief syna¬ gogue of Buenos Aires was the first item. ..The tragic aspect of this renewal of anti-Jewish activities Is to be found -in the lethargic attitude of Argentine labor, which is being sold the idea that Jewish businessmen are their greatest enemies.... The trouble, of course, is that there are a few unethical JewLsh businessmen who with their sharp practices endanger the entire Jewish community... During Roosevelt's presidehcy the Argentine Government was well aware that the President of the United States was watch¬ ing the Jewish i^ltuatlon closely and viewing anti-Jewish exces¬ ses as manifestations of Fascism. More than once FDR signified his irritation at antl-Sem'ltlc acts sponsored or condoned by Peron... But now, )n view of the very, very friendly relations between Washington nnd Bue- . nos Aires, there Is Uttle hope for official protests from the White House... MIKNBSOTA'S OFPOBTUNmf A letter from a student at the University of Minnesota took a long time reaching us... The malls must have mislaid this missive—an3TVay, we received it moHths after It had been mailed.

Tlie executive met following a joint meeting with the Jewish National Council, at which the deteriorating situation was thor¬ oughly di.scussed. The meeting was attended by several out¬ standing leaders in the Jewish community, by the mayors of Tel Aviv and Nathanya, repre¬ sentatives of local and munici¬ pal councils, spokesmen for the Histadruth and the (Thief Rab¬ binate, and by representatives of other groups. Following the Agency execu¬ tive meeting, one of its spokes¬ men disclosed that full dress investigation of the pogrom in Tel Aviv is to be demanded. He said no improvement in the situation could be expected as long as Britain persisted in its policy of turning away Jewish refugee immigrants and of keep¬ ing the Holy Land under a vir¬ tual state of martial law. He referred to the Yishuv and the British forces In Palestine as "nolhlng but tools and victims" In "a war between Bevln and Belgn", the reputed commander of the Irgun forces. -Meanwhile spokesmen for Ir¬ gun Zvai Leuml had made it known that "our hanging ac¬ count with the British" has not yet been settled and that more British sdldiera "are schedulesj^ for the gallows." At the same time the Haganah radio de¬ nounced the Irgunists, declai-ing that organization was "not a movement for freedoiy'jmt a band guarding thelr.preStlge by staining the Jewislipeople." At the same time Haganah charged British troops with resoonslbfl manded that "tlie authorities find and punish the rioters." The warning said that the Brit¬ ish authorities "know that the murder of the sergeants was carried out by a band of dissi¬ dents who have been cast out from the organized Jevylsh com¬ munity.' Wilh the ultimate fate of the Kxodus 1947 immigrants still In the balance, the feeling pi'evail- ing here is that unless there Is a change in British policy there may be a repetition of last week's events. An alarming re¬ port was received here from France that the Exodus passen- gers are to be shipped to a Brit¬ l.sh ¦ colony. It has al.so been reported .that British and French authorities are contemplating offering the Exodus refugees priorities on visas to Palestine if they consent to leave the British detention ships on which they are now being held in a French port.
