Central Ohio's Onh Jewish Newspaper Reaching Every Home A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWISH HOME Davoted to American and Jewish Ideals .

Ceases Activities, but Work for Distressed Jews in Europe Must Continue, Is Opinion of American Jewry's Leaders MILLlfoN-DOLLAR DRIVE Deceives endorsement NEW YORK, (Jewish Telegraphic Agency). — Further cxiircssions of en¬ dorsement for thc $1,000,000 drive of| thc Ort, thc society for the promotion of agricultural and trades among the Jews in Eastern Europe, were received in reply to an inquiry sent out by Mr Hermann Bernstein, editor of the "Jew¬ ish Tribune". Rabbi Samuel Schul¬ man of Temple Beth-^cl, Rabbi Julian Morganstcrn, President of the Hebrew Union College of Cincinnati, Dr. Cyrus Adler, President of Dropsie College and acting President of thc Jewish Theological Seminary, and Mrs. Re¬ becca Kohut, proniinent worker in the Council of Jewish Women, wcr( those who expressed their appreciation of thc Ort work. "In" my opinion," says Rabbi Samuel Schulman, "the organization Ort is deserving of the support of American Jews. I think no better serv¬ ice can be rendered to our brethren than to help them in their economic re¬ construction. The aim of the Ort has been to help thc education of thc masses of our brethren abroad to become artisans and farmers, so as to diminish thc number of those who are engaged in petty trades. "The purpose of the Ort is, by this educational and econortiic movement, to help ameliorate the conditions of Jew¬ ish life in the countries where most of them have to remain. What appeals to me most in this enterprise is the con- 'ccntration of attention upon thc prob¬ lem of making the Jew self-supporting | and enabling him to lead a self-respect¬ ing life in the country of his bi;rth.

"So long as Jews in any part of thai world are in straits of any kind, and particularly, if these Jews constitute] considerable groups, it is our impera¬ tive' duty as loyal jfews to assist them generously and whole-heartedly ir every way possible. i"In the present case, such organiza¬ tions as the Ort oflfer, so it seems, the best means of extending this assistance. It follows therefore, as I see it, that these organizations should rei enthusiastic support of all loyal Amer¬ ican Jews." Dr. Cyrus Adler declared, "I believe that as the economic condition of thc Jews of America is immensely more favorable then that of their European brethren, they should aid the Ort, in which I have full confidence." "The reason why I want the Ort to get the money,'' says Mrs. Rebecca Kohut, "for which it is askin cause it has always been my opinion that with proper training and proper help there is no reaso,n why our Jew¬ ish youth cannot become well-trained artisans, successful and contented farmers and directed into trade train- (Concluded on page 4) Chairman of Retail Division In Chest Drive Mandates Commission Concludes Its Debate On Palestine Reports Appreciates DimcuUics of Sir Her- hcrt's Administration; Takes, Cognizance of Arab Petition To Which Reply Was Given In Advance.

Aim to Naturalize Every Foreign-Born Jewess in the U. S. Council Chairman Declares Citi¬ zenship Will Combat Prejudice Against Immigrants NEW YORK CITY. —That every foreign-born Jewish woman in thc United States shall be urged to qualify :itizenship, is the plan of Mrs. Samuel Rosensohn of New York City, National Chairman of the Department Immigrant Aid of the National Council of Jewish Women, in a message to the members of her organization and the local leaders in the Council im¬ migrant education work. In all the gloom and tragedy which surround the present immigration law," declares Mrs. Rosensohn, "there is one bright side to the situation, iind that is, that we can new devote, ourselves with renewed fervor to thc problems and j^aresroL^eruiinmigrant womeff^and girbil- residing in our country, and do really! constructive work in thc field of immi¬ grant aid and immigrant education. "Every foreign-born ' Jewish woman with whom the Council has been able to make any contact whatsoever should be urged to take out her first papers soon as possible, and should be taught ,to take advantage of those opportuni¬ ties for citizenship which are- now within the reach of all who desire them. The Council has continually stressed the importance of-working with immigrant mothers, that group of new who are the last to be reaphed in any community program because of their home responsibilities. With the new immigration law exempting from the quota only one group of alien grants, wives and minor children of American citizens; with discussion that points to the fact that stringent laws may, in the not distant future, be passed against non-assimilated aliens in this country, it becomes our bounden. duty to inaugurate and institute citizenship cam¬ paigns for women which will include within their scope every Jewish woman in every community throughoi United States. "In recent discussions as to what races should be admitted to the United States, the point has often been 'made that admission should be based upon the percentage of citizenship of the group already residing in this country, though wc recognize that citizenship is not in itself the ultimate test of the assimilability and desirability of certain groups, we do nevertheless feel that the present time is of thc utmost importance for us to give our foreign-born dents the opportunity of becoming American citizens with all the privileges and duties that this new dignity eritails.- The new immigration policy has with¬ out doubt affected the attitude of immi¬ grants in this country by creating iri them a spirit of antagonism toward our land and its people, because of otir open manifestation'of dislike for foreignet We must combat, therefore, not only the usual spirit of lassitude and diffidence, which overtakes aliens endeavoring to learn new ways in a new country, but we must also endeavor to break down this suspicious attitude on the part of the foreign-born by an| increasing mani¬ festation of our desire to be real neigh¬ bors , and real friends to them. Fur¬ thermore, it is incumbent on us to show to the' prejudiced people in the United States, not only that the Jewish immi¬ grant ' is now an unassimilable addition to thc community, but to! prove that he is among the most assimilable of all the groups that have entered the United States." the Palestine ^Mandate is in agreement with thc spirit and thc letter of Article 22 of the League of Nations Cove¬ nant is not within the province of the Commission to decide. Marquis Theo- doli stated. After accepting the report of the Palestine High Commissioner, the Mandates Commission took cogni: of the petition from thc Palestine Arab Executive, representing the Christian Moslem Association. Sir Herbert Sam- report contained a reply in ad¬ vance to the complaints of the Arab petition. During the last day of the discus- on on thc Palestine reports, Sir Her¬ bert Samuel gave the members of the Mandates Commission detailed infor¬ mation concerning the schools of the Christians, Moslems and Jews in Pales¬ tine, the use of Hebrew in public life, labor conditions, sanitation facilities, the budget and the finances of the country. j At thc request of the Commission, Sir Herbert added further details to a number of points in his report, garding thc mining of potash in the] D6ad Sea, he said that a commis^ioh had been sent to investigate, and it 11 Jewry. I can say that there are Iiardly any Jewish inhabitants in Egypt who arc in need," he stated, a great number of Jews in lEgypt who occupy prominent positions ',m the industry aiid commerce of the .Country. Those who are not so well Situated engage in thc smaller trades and business. They live in separate ^arts of the cities. This segregation, [which dates back centuries, is' volun- ;tary because they find it most conven¬ ient for them. The Egyptian Jews also take an ac- ;tivc part in the politics of the coun- '^ry. Some of thc members of the Jew- comminiity occupy governmental 'position. Their largest field of activity, lliowever, is in the economic rather than [theh political life of thc country. [Rollos and Soircs occupy positions, in [iEgypt similar to that of the Rothschild family in Europe. Many are also active in philanthropic activities, although ^thcrc is no separate Jewish philan- 'tiiropic organization.

A,)—The atti¬ tude of thc contesting parties in the presidential election towards immigra¬ tion, foreign-born citizens and other questions of interest to the Jewish peo¬ ple is clearly stated in the platforms of the parties, as published in a recent sue of the Congressional Digest. The Republican party's platform con¬ tains thc following plank' on immigra¬ tion and naturalization: "The gration law recently enacted is designed to protect thc inhabitants of our coun¬ try, not only the American citizen, bul also the alien already with us ^who is seeking to secure an economic foothold for ..himself- and^ t(imil>f.agaui3t.the>cotap] petition which would come from striQtcd immigration. "Wo. favor the improvement of our naturalization laws and the adoption of methods which will exert a helpful in¬ fluence among the foreign-born popula¬ tion and provide for the education of the alien in our language, customs, and standards of life." The platform of the Democratic party limits itself to saying only, "We pledge ourselves to maintain our established position in favor of the exclusion of Asiatic immigration." The Progressive party makes no mention of the problem. The. National Prohibition party, or¬ ganized Sept. 1,. 1869, with headquarters at Chicago, of which Herman Preston Paris is presidential nominee, contains thc following plank: "The Bible is the Magna Charta of human liberty and national safety and is of highest educa¬ tional value. Therefore it should have large place in our public schools.

That the Community Fund has op¬ erated as cfliciently as its most sanguine proponents had anticipated may be gleaned from the many letters approv- it which have been -received from the heads of the benefiting agencies. Among these is Joseph Schonthal, president of the Jewish Welfare Fed¬ eration, who wrote to the Fund head¬ quarters : "Our" experience with thc Columbus Community Fund has been so satis¬ factory that it exceeded our expecta¬ tions. I congratulate the city of Co-, lumbus for their good fortune in se¬ curing such able management of the Columbus Community Fund."
