M. HERSHMAN OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN, TELLS OF CONVENTION Thinks Character of Delegates Is Good Augury of Deep In¬ terest in Judaism DKTROIT. —Rabbi A. M. HLM-.s)ini:in of .Sb.-iaroy Zcdck Syn.iaiosuc, Detroit, Michj, regards the twelfth annual con¬ vention of the United .Synagogue, held in New York last week, in conjunction with the conventions of the Women's League and the Young People's League, as an event of significance and impor¬ tance., lie was impressed with thc cliar- acter of the delegates who .ittcnded the gathering. "I have attended many of the con¬ ventions of the United Syn.igogue," said Rabbi Hcrshmiln, "but 1 never was quite so definitely impressed with the earnest¬ ness of thc delegates as I was at the recent meeting-. The nien and women who came from all parts of the cotm- try to take part in the deliberations of the United Synagogue seemed to have demonstrated that they realize the needs of Judaism and to be bent upon fulfill¬ ing them to the utmost of their ability. Their broad under.standing of Jewish religious and social conditions and of the detailed plans which they formu¬ lated to strengthen traditional Judaism in this country constitutes a most heart¬ ening fact in an otherwise depressing situation. STEAMSHIP COS. REDUCE STAFFS IN POLAND VVARS.'WV, (J. T. .'\.),—Many; Amer¬ ican and KngilisH ste.-inisliip companies, which had special agencies in Poland, arci reducing their stalls in the prin- cipaL cities and closing down their of¬ fices ill the provinciaT towns, as a result of the inimigr.ntion hill now pending in the American Congress, restricting im¬ migration to .America. The loss in business to the steamship companies b)' reason of the new immi¬ gration law will amount to hundreds of thousands pf dollars. Murder Totals Lowest Where Jews Reside Says Statistician Dr. Hoffman of Prudential Life Insurance Co. Declares Where There, Are Jews and For¬ eigners in Large Numbers, the Murder totals Are Low Rising to the Opportunity "The United Synagogue, I have rea¬ son to believe, is rising to thc oppor¬ tunity that has developed in .American Jewry and with the aid of the devoted men and women who, like those who attended the convention, are supporting its' various activities, will leave its im¬ press upon the future of traditional Judaism in this country." t ^¦JtabtM.»H<irshiiwlB»wto.<ihairmfta-«i>4«4h^ mtucaHioii committee' of the convention and sponsored several vital resolutions. The other delegates from Detroit were Louis Granct, who served oh the com¬ mittee on co-opcraish learnitig, and M. H. Zackhcim, who was a member of the religious observance committee. Both represented Shaarey Zedek Congrega¬ tion. Brought in Resolutions The following were the resolutions brought in by Rabbi Hershman: That the United Synagogue of .Amer- ' ica undertake a national survey within its constituent institutions similar to that undertaken by the New York branch of the United Synagogue in its constituent organizations; That it publish-a-textbook for kin- - dergarten material for daily and Sunday schools ;- That it piiblish programs for rcligiou.s school assemblies; That it publish textbooks on religion for various grades; That it publish a curriculum for ad¬ vanced classes; That it arrange curricula for schools among thc farming colonies and work out a plan for adequate supervision of these schools; : That it publish, a text book of Amer¬ ican Jewish history to be used in the higher gr.ides of religious schools. NEW YORK,,—Tlwt New Yijrk be-, cause of its tremendous Jewish popU:- lation and large percentage of residents of foreign birth now has and has had for many years one of the lowest homi¬ cidal records in the United States is the assertion made by JPr. Frederick L. HofTman, vice-president and consult¬ ing .statistician of the Prudential Life Insurance Company, Where there arc Jews antj'foreign- born in any large numbers the murder totals arc low, Dr, Hoffman .declared. Jt is further asserted by DnHbfl- man that in. the South where there arie but few Jews and few foreign-born the sanctity of human life is a "ghastly joke." Memphi.s, Tenn., with a record of sixty-five, murders for each IQO.OQO persons, is a typical case. Jn these in¬ stances niost of the victims are negroes. "Murder arid crime ; . are - greatest aitiong native-born Americans in the South," said Dr. HofTman. "But there is a sharp difference between the fpr- eign-born and the children of the second generation.: They have had a chance to absorb our .'culture; aiid it; is inevitable . jj.._ ^ireir- iivtr-haytr'-tttr ijossi Wftty"pf-n' bold and criiel criminal. , ; "I alvifays find the Jews law-abiding." While the Nation's homicide record is higher as compared with Europe's Dr.. Hoffman's figures refute the efforts of anti-immigrationist "Nordic" groups to place blame for this Condition on the large cities inhabited rna'inly by persons of recent immigrant stock Reports; from twenty-eighf cities last year show :ilY6 miirders or one murder for each 10,0(30 people, New York's total, is 300. per year, ; The record of theWest, where im- inigration has been lightest, is nearly as bad as that .of the South, Dr. Hoffman says. , Terrible!!!

You have relatives, business patrons, and "friends" (using the word in its conven¬ tional sense) of all shades of degree and kind. Therefore it is not always tact¬ ful to assert your mere "rights".

Jewish Tobacco Manufacturer of Poland Transfers Industry to Palestine WARSAW, (J. T. A.). —The great¬ est Jewish tobacco manufacturer of Po¬ land, Mr. Pdlakiewicz, whose plant in Grodno has taken oyer the government's monopoly of the tobacco industry, has left for Palestine for the purpose of establishing there a tobacco' manufac¬ turing plant. Mr, Polakiewicz has t-iken with him a considerable nutnber o-f workers skilled in ''the tobacco industry. though this was a dramatic episode, it was so moving- that Mr. Dimond, a "captain of industry" and schooled sternly to disguise his thoughts, had a .hard struggle to restrain his emotions, and Was unable to cpnclude his response to the graeipiis words with which Felix Fuld made the presentation, and the cheers of the assemblage. Apiparently the meeting was drawing to an end when Michael Hollander, who is leading the campaign to raise .$!,- .¦)00,00O for: Newark's Beth Israel Hos¬ pital, sprang to: his feet, and in a short, moving address stated that as a token of their esteem, he and his brother Al¬ bert Hollander, wished to cancel $30,000 worth of bonds held by them. Hardly had the audience realized what had. happened before Felix Fuld, who has, just given a quarter of ai mil¬ lion to the hospital campaign, .shouted: "I can't let Mike Hollander, get ahead of me," and cancelled .5i23,00O worth. 'In a minute Louis Bamberger was on his feet annoiincing that he. too,Would cincel bonds held by him in the same amount. By this time the auditorium was in an uproar. Man after ii^an sprang to his feet to-cancel bonds. Men who had not purchased boi'ids originally bought them in thousand dollar lots in order imme¬ diately to cancel them- One hundred and ten thousand dollars'- worth were c.-mcelled within ten minutes. But this did not end' the orgy of giving. Con¬ tributions for equipping the library, for memberships for boys and girls unable to pay, for, vacations at the "Y's" sum¬ mer camp, for kuidergarfen work fol¬ lowed in rapid order without "inspira¬ tion", without solicitation. The sum to¬ tal of this outburst of generosity ex¬ ceeded $150,000 before it exhausted it¬ self. > - ., .- ' . Formal Function The banquet as a formal funclion, was the largest ever held in Newark, and its- program included addresses by Felix M, Warburg and Executive Director Harry L.
