Among- the icsohuions framed by thc Economic Conference was one urging the creation of an agricultural hank to help the Jewish .settlers with farm credits. The Zionist Organization also was called upon to see that thc :if;ricnl~ tural t.ixcg in Palestine lie reducetl for the next 15 years to make the farmers* burden lighten. Tho conference alflo Raw the necessity of encouraging the in¬ crease of orange plantations which were provinjir very profitable. A resolution was passed recommending that a dele-, gation appointed by the Zionist Organi¬ sation meet a- Government committee to discuss the crown lands available in Palestine and that that part of thc land favorable for cultivation be given to Jews. The members of the conference thor¬ oughly discussed thc possibility of hav¬ ing tlic Keren Hayesod and other im¬ portant reconstruction agencies in Pal estinc r»ise $1,000,000 for thc proposed Agricultural Bank and al.so thc urgency and justice ol having the Palestine gov¬ ernment allocate $1,000,000- from its yearly budget for this purpose for a certain number of years. Many speakers pointed out the vital importance of the industrial development of the country which hinged on credit facilities. They recommended that both thc Keren Hayesod and other Palestine Corporations, establish thc necessary crpdit institutions.

Their work it was declared establishes •J. basis for the functioning of business enterprises. Sir Herbert Samuel, who presided at the Conference, personally drafted most of the resolutions. He declared that, if properly financed, Palestine industrial enterprises have every possibility for successful growth. The high mark of . the conference was reached when Dr. Chaim Weizmann,' President of the World's Zionist Organization outlined the Zionist position in relation to the economic and industrial situation in Palestine. The Jewish economic prog¬ ress, he declared, could bc increased only ' through thc establishment of agricul¬ tural and industrial credits.

The officers of thc Fraternity take this means of cordially inviting every Jew in Columbiis to the housewarming which takes ilfacc tomorrow (Sunday) October a 1th from S to i) p. m. The home was formerly occupied by Frederick C. II. Kurzrock, we'I-known Columbus business man, and contains his Opinion on thc question of religious liberty, the true nature of pa triotism, and compulsory Bible reading in the public schools. He prefaced his remarks to me by touching on thc tribute I recently paid him in thc columns of The Ohio Jewish Chronicle in which I re¬ counted the salient features of his career and ranked him among thc greatest champions of the people's rights in the entire history of the Buckeye state. "I appreciate," he declared most heartily, "the sincere and friendly manner in which you handled your subject in your article entitled, 'Ohio's Greatest Commoner', and I hope I have lived up and may always live up to your ideal of a public official. Your kind words at this par¬ ticular time strengthen my hands and stimulate me to fight on. I cer¬ tainly value the friendly spirit animating your article and will never knowingly do anything lo cause you to regret it." A QUESTION "What is your' thought, governor, regarding America's greatest need today?" I finally interrog.-ited after telling him that my tribute to him was given voluntarily without any suggestion from any of his po¬ litical or personal friends, and just out of my own personal feeling of gratitude towards him for what his life and his accompli.shments have meant to me. Without any hesitation, the governor replied as follows; "The grcitest need ill thi.s country today in my opinion is social and business morality with due respect for law and constituted authority. I believe that thc influence ot the home must be strcngtbeiied, that fathers and mothers must bear continually in mind their marital vows and think constantly on their duties to their children and to society. Infidelity, one of the most terrible curses of modern society, must be abolished and the single standard must be strongly advocated and rigidly niaiiitaitied. The love of God and the influence of true religious teaching must per¬ meate every American home, so that our young people will be brought up in a good wholesome environment, an environment which will assist tlicni mightily in their preparation for the problems of life and their future duties as citizens and voters. SACRED INSTITUTIONS "¦['he laws of the land should be held up as sacred institutions. We must impress the young generation witll tho cublimity of our constitution, with the grandeur of our land and its history, and with the noble example of our illus¬ trious forefathers. Towards this end I have always fought for thc strengthening and iniprovcnicnt of our educational system and for thc advancement of the church as a civic institution; for I believe th.it an mtelligent ami God-fearing citi/enship will elevate the standard.s of our people and inspire them witll thc most exalted ideals. "Regarding labor, T want to impress the rank and file of our people with tbc fact tbat I believe in collective bargaining. 1 believe in the eight-hour law. I believe ill good wages. I believe in improving working conditions. Tn the lan¬ guage of thc Clayton law, which I strongly advocated, 'Labor is not a com¬ modity,' and I "have no resiiect for, rnr patience with any civic or political leader who trios to insist that it is. "I am hnppy to bo ab'e to assert today without any fear of contradiction that labor in the U.

That American Reform Ju- d.iism, after more than fifty years of ' conlinnotiH Kfowtb, is facing a financial crisis whirh nia% be the turning point of its development, wa=; emphasized in a statement made public by Ludwig VogcUtcin, chairYnan of the F-xccutive Board of tbe Union of American He¬ brew Congrcgatinn.s Mr. Vogelstein declared that the Conference o.f Liberal Jews held rccoiilly in London had given a decided impetus to religious move¬ ments in America. But at thc same time, lie Slid, thi; Union of American Hebrew Congvcgations which gives direction and development to Reforni Judaism in thc United States is confroiitt'd with the ne¬ cessity for rurtailiiig tlie budget re- (juired for its activities because of the inadequacy of funds. Tbe Union'sBoard of Finance, of which Dav;d A Brown is chairman, has hesitated to go before the public to raise the sum reciuircd to maintain thc Union's activities because of urgent apjMjals for funds for relief and reconstruction from their corre- ligionistb in many lands, Mr. Vogolbtein stated. Mr. Vogelstein declared that thc Union had been able to carry on its large pro- gr.im which includes thc maintenance of thc Hebrew Union College at Cincin¬ nati, two teachers' training schools at Cincinnati and New York, thc Hebrew Union College library and museum, and a Department of Synagogue and School Extension through thc use of a reserve fund which has now been w'ipcd out.

"Up to tbe present time l^eform Ju¬ daism has made progress without any unusual effort,'* Mr. Vogelsteni de¬ clared. "It has succeeded because, in the nature of things, it is thc answer to those who are seeking a way of adjust¬ ing Jewish tradition to thc necessities of modern life.
