JUDGE LEWIS ASSURfeD OP SUCCESS IN DRIVE NEW YORK. —That the unwar- . ranted and biased report on Palestine of Dr. Henry S.. Pritchctt to the Car¬ negie Endowment for International Peace, is rousing United Palestine Ap¬ peal workers throughout the. country to greater efforts for the Jewish Home¬ land, is the assurance given Judge Wil¬ liam M. Lewis, national chairman ot the Appeal, in communications from oflieers and workers from coast to coast. "Our staunch and.untiring workers in ¦ every section of the land are giving a truly Jewish answer to the unfair asper¬ sions on Zionism made hy Dr. Pritchctt," says a statement issued by Judge Lewis. *'The many heartening messages reach- ; ing national Iieadquarters give us a great deal of encoiiragcment. They .express a determination to double all previous efforts for Palestine, in face of the chal¬ lenge contained in Dr. Pritchett's report, '¦The .open and veiled aspersions pub' lished by Dr. Pritchctt have, not only stirred our workers,; but helped to pre¬ sent anew to the general public the pic ture of Jewish accomplishmerit which is certain' to win for our cause additional, friendship from non-Jews' and greater effort for Palestine on the part of the . Jew. ¦' ''The" genuinely Jewish .answer to modern anti,-Semitism was given by the founders of the Zionist movement, wheti .they declared self-emancipation to. be the most effective action with which to combat anti-Jewish oppression. The growth of the movement for'the rebuild¬ ing' of Palestine as the Jewish' Home¬ land mirrors the determination ¦ of the Je.w to reply to all-hostility .with con¬ structive work for the establishment of ,a genuine.Jewish commonwealth. . "The established fact is'that the Arabs are, greatly ibenefiting from Jewish set¬ tlement of Palestine. .The admission of Dr. Pritchctt that his stay in Palestine was too 'brief to enable him to confer with Jewish leaders and therefore. to. learn from them the extent of Jewish accomplishment and growth in -the land is evidence of the'superficial character of his report. We translate the mes¬ sages of encouragement from our work¬ ers ih terras of faith in the.Jewish peo- . pie, and wc are confident that the gen- l eral response will he an oversubscription ' of the year's *7,5I)0,000 United Appe,il." SPECIAL SERVICES FOB THE BRYDEN KD. TEMPLE BUN- DAY SCHOOL CHILDREN TOMORROW Rabbi Jacob Tarshish urgcnt- ¦ ly requests all cjtildr«n .of the Brydcn Road Temple Sunday School to. attend fhe Special Services arranged for them to¬ morrow (Sunday) morning from 10:30 to 11:30.

Mrs. Jack MeyerS; who is chairman o( the committee, is desirous of having as many thei'e as possible as garments at this sewing will he made for the Hadassah. '. Prominent Local Citizens Promote Fine Work of Jewish Infants' Home Mrs. Wm. Moslcr, 787 Clinton Springs Ave., Cincinnati, and Mrs: Geo. Sickles, 3551 Alaska. Ave, Cincinnati, were unanimously elected to serve on the Board of the Jewish Infants' Home of Ohio as Trustees. Mrs, Siegfried Geisr mar, 3235 Burnett Ave., has-heen a Trus tec of this organization since 1!)25, The Jewish Infants* Home of Ohio was founded 'by Mr. Joseph Schonthal of Columbus, Ohio, who built this Home and gave it to the Community to be used as a State Infants' Home, the ob¬ ject and purpose of which is the care, maintenance,' and rearing of ioEants. un¬ der the age of six years, whose parents,, through death or any other cause, arc unable, to give thcni proper care. Mr. Joseph Schonthal was elected ithe first iPresidcnt of, this, organization and.has beJen in this office ever since...' The following cities are represented: Columibus, Akron, Dayton, Youngstown, Toledo; Hariiilton, Portsmouth, and Cin¬ cinnati. ¦ , The Board of Trustees are: Presi¬ dent Mr; Joseph Schonthal, Columbus, Ohio; Ra'bbi David Alexander, Akron, Ohio'; Miss Malvyn. _Wachner, Akron,- Ohio; Mr.'I. Siivermari, Toledo, Ohio; Mrs! Sylvan Basch, Toledo, Qhio; Mr. Max Kleeman, Springfield, bhi'o; Mr. Ben Strauss, Hamilton, Ohio; Mrs. Sieg¬ fried Geismar, Cincinnati,. Ohio; Mrs. Wm.

Summer, Columbus, Ohio; Mlrs. Edgar B. Isaac, Coluihbus, Ohio. ¦ , The~ Infants' Home at present cares for_ thirty children, ranging in age from several months to,six years.. The chil.- dren are giviin special diets—each child's history being charted daily. Dr. Dickin¬ son Moore, one of Columbus' noted baby specialists, visits the home daily—chang- iiig diets and -care as needed. The Superintendent of the Home is an ex¬ perienced Graduate Nurse and is assisted by four specially tiaiiied child care WTorkers. The Home is one of the most modern and thoroughly equipped homes of this kind in the country. It has a playground with all the most recent recreational equipment, including Merry-Go-Roun-d, Sliding. Board, Sand TaWes, etc. For inclement weather,'the play room gives untold joy to the kiddies. At the Board Meeting held Sunday, December oth, motions, were made and carried to give more ^publicity to the work of .the Home. A splendid reel of moving pictures showing the activi ties of the Home gave the Trustees a real picture of the actual. work carried on by this organization. Each child with its individual dress — the picture of health, radiating; joy and happiness — told a real story. The per capita cost of maintenance for each child per year is !K>00.00. The, budget of' the organization is $l*i,00O.O() per year. Several of the cities subscribe their- quotas through their Federations, who receive their funds from the local Community Chests—other cities collect funds through Special Committees. The special meeting was called .because of the shortage of funds with which to carry on the work of the organization for the; month pf December. It is to be hoped that citizens of the state of Ohio will not permit these children to be denied the proper care that they have always rcceivetl. Write yourcheck now. Beyond a.shadow of doubt..the first Fellowship dinner of the Bryl^" Ro:id Temple Brotherhood at the Elks' Homo last Tuesday night;-was an overwhelm-1 ing success, not only, from the point of view of numbers, but also froin. the point of view of genuine satisfaction which everyone derived' from the affair. President Yassenoff considered it the best attended and most enthusiastic gathering held under the auspices bf the Brotherhood. ,, "I only hope/' he continued, , "that our next three dinners, one pf which will be in .cooperation with the ladies of the Temple Sisterhood, will be per¬ meated by the same spirit which ani¬ mated this one, and will also attract as large a crowd. I sec a brilliant future for our organization and urge every member of our splendid Temple to as¬ sist mc ill realizing this vision." The music furnished, for the occasion was very well-appreciated. Prior to Dr. Tarshish's introduction of the speaker of honor, John J. Lentz, .short talks were made by President Yassenoff, J. Jack Stoher, National Director of the MoOse, and Mr. Joseph Schqnthal. . , Rabbi Tarshish presented John J. Lentz^ as a nian of unique distinction — a dreamer as -well as a great builder, "Mr. Lentz is always eloquent^ in¬ structive and inspiring,'' said Rabbi Tarshish^ "His words invariably stim¬ ulate, thought. He is .familiar with all the perplexing problems of contempo¬ rary life,, and' he possesses the happy faculty of elucidating these problems." 'The A, .1. U. (American Insurance Union) is amonumerit to his ability, his foresight, and his unremitting labors in tlie insurance field. Without his efforts the majestic building which stands on the corner of Front and Broad streets, xvouid have never 'been" built.. It was he who fought so valiantly and persever- ingly to hasten its consumation and thereby gave to Columbus its raotit beautiful structure, and lo America one of the most imposing office buildings ever designed." . , ¦ lu his masterful address Mr. Lcntz not only.paid a glowing tribute to the Jewish iieoplc for their good citizenship and their marvelous industry, but also declared that their religious principles were "the basis of modern civilization. "From Moses, Solomon, Jesus and St. Paul we learn som^ of the grandest pre¬ cepts ever vouchsafed to man. These towering characters make plagiarists of all of our great thinkers. It is their lofty and noble teachings which inspired soine of the world's, finest poetry and prose. ' "Today all men of light and leading recognize what the world Owes to tlierir. as weII, as to the Jewish Race as a whole. Ithink.that itis the duty of men to realize that an. honest . man is the noblest work of God and that an honest government is the noblest work of man. And wc, as forwardrlooking citizens, DU'^ht to de<Iicate ourselves to improving onr government and 'purging it of those evils which have been defiling it. With regard to religious matters Mr. Lentz advocated "strict adlierence to.the .principle of religious toleratibn. It is my firm conviction that there are a thousand and one ,ways of worshiping God, the Universal Father. He serves God best who,serves his neighbors most devote<lly and unselfishly. I abhor ty- ranjiy and intolerance in every, form'. ."A man who casts aspersions at his nci'*hbor who differs' with him in re¬ ligious views is a -poor citizen and a rank bigot. He needs to get better ,ac- quainlecl with the spirit of Emerson, Lincoln "and Jefferson." Mr. Lentz also touched upon; the boundless resources of America and the maiiy opportunities which the American people have to improve conditions here. FOURTH BIG ANNUAL .

LEVINGEK HADASSAH ENTEKTAINED BY THE PUPILS OP THE HE- BHEW SCHOOL At their last meeting the ladies of the Columbus chapter of the Hadassah have been well entertained by the pupils of ^hi Hebrew school who have given to their meeting tlie air of a real Chanukah celebratiiin.

Lazarus Sisterhood will hold its regular monthly meeting' on Tues((ay, December Wth, at the Bryden Road Temple. After the business meeting, a program of music will be given,under the direc¬ tion of Mrs. Max Wallach. There will be an instrumental trio consisting ,of Miss LorcttaSettler, celloi'st, Mtiss Cath¬ erine Zettler, violinist, and Mrs, Geral- dini T. .Woodruff, pianist. Two vocal¬ ists, Mrs. Cathryne Adkinson, contralto, and Mrs. Pea>l Shardelow-Snyder, so¬ prano, will also appear on the program One-half bf the world does not know how the other" half lives. -. The old adage does not go far enough. We are dividing ourselves up into friendship groups, sympathy groups, on a far smaller basis than half the humaiv racfe. ¦ *;, Did you ever pick up the daily paper, notice a headline:—"Fifty Drowned in .Flood" —and look eag'crly to see who ahd where? And if you find the acci¬ dent to have occurred in your own state, or; In a neighhoring section of the United States; you probably read every word in breathless interest. But if it happened in one of the still frequent overflows of; the great: rivers of China,^or if the starvation is in India, or if the crew of the sunken ship arc Italians or Japanese, were you just as interested? Most people fail to thrill at sorrow or ppril to people of an alien race. They refuse to recognize their common hu¬ manity. . " Why are the heroes of our. magazine stories always American, while the vil¬ lains are selected from other nations time after time? Once upon a time the villain was typically an Englishman, later a Russian; during the war he turned Teutonic ami grew a huge; mous¬ tache ; nowadays he wears a sombrero and is a Mexican "bad man." Why do we like'to laugh.at other races when depicted on the vaudeville; stage? Sometimes the laughter is friendly, sometimes malicious; but it must he due to a lack of kinship: Many of us carry the same tack of sympathy, of fellow-feeling, to different social .groups or classes than our own, Wc do not understand what a day lab¬ orer can be thinking about as he swings his pick, or a capitalist as. he sits at his desk — whatever the different groups than our own may be. We never realize that the other fellow has a family, a home, ambitions, loves and griefs, ex¬ actly as wc have. We are conscious.of our own emotions, but We fail to realize his. This, sense of difference influences us in time of war. We do not feel that we are attacking or murdering people like ourselves; we are killing the Hun or the enemy — not our enemy only but that of mankind. In most ancient days it was customary to consider foreign languages ridiculous because they were unintelligible, to call them "gibberish'^ wiien they were merely mumbling of crazy syllables. Often we , raise bur voices when we speak to for¬ eigners, as though,they were, deaf and could not understand. us. : The matter of a; little extra pigment in-the skin—more or IcsS — constantly disguises to :us the: essential similarity of the soul .within. There is nothing really more external or less significant than this, other things being equal, , Long ago thiere was a prophet of, Is¬ rael who saw these same facts we see today. Men fought each other, hated each other, ignored each other. Men failed to see in each other their com¬ mon image. He remembered that God had created all men in His own image. He spoke to- his own friends and neighliors, but his ideas apply to us as well. That is why he is called a.prophet: He said, "Are we not all brothers? Has not one God created us all? Why then should we deal treacherously, every man with his neighbor?" Mrs. Levinger's Pageant Feature of Council of Jewish Women Meeting Mrs. Elma Ehrlich Levinger' wrote and directed the pageant, ''The Woman's Mcnorah," which, was presented last Tuesday at the meeting of the Columbus Woinen held at the Brydcn Road Tem¬ ple., Mrs. B'.

Y., Dayton, Ohio, are sending to you a box full of. toys and books and many other little things as their Chan- nukah contribution to the children in your care., ' ¦. Each one of these little gifts brought a great deal of joy in the lives of the little ones who ar^ sending them, and it was their thought ttiat these same toys would bring gladness to the little tots in Columbus. While these toys are not new, they represent in a measure a vahied contri¬ bution from the childish viewpoint, as it meant that they had to part with treasured possession that they might send happiness to others. Along with the gifts^ I have been asked to include in this letter our very best wishes for the Chanukah season from each and every child in our Sun¬ day School.' Hoping that you are all well and are having a jolly good time, we are; Vours most affectionately, THE CHILDREN OF TEMPLE K. K. B. Y., Dayton, Oliio. Y, W, H A.

" ¦ " " ' NEW YORK. — In -the widespread commendation that has followed on the.: state-wide effort which has . won for Ohio a leading place on the honor roll of states which have gone "over the top" in the United Jewish Campaign the .. success achieved in the central Ohio- District, of which Columbus is the cen¬ ter, has been accorded equal praise with that of ;the two larger centers of Jewish population to the north-and south. , r The cani[(aign in the Columbus district la-st spring, which was the second of, the three 'big regional. di-i.ves in the state, resulted in raising $136,717 against the assigned quota of fllMOO. In the ac¬ complishment of this result,'the smaller individual communities of this district whose efforts were ' associated ' in the drive are declared by the leaders to be entitled to a distinct share of praise, and Chafrman Edward J. Goodman, who headed the regional organization, has; . taken occasion to bestow special recogni¬ tion, oil the work of the leaders in these comnnmitics., Among tho.se to whom' Mr. Goodman gives signal mention . is , the committee for Springfield, which in¬ cluded. Max L. Kleeman as honorary chairman, Justin A. AItshul.,as acting chairman, Joseph Ebner, as vice-chain- man; Gus M: Salzer as treasurer, aind Percy Rosenfield as secretary. Others are Dayton, where the drive was headed by Milton Stern, chairman^ and Elmer J, Rauh, vice-chairman, and Bellaire, . whOse'coinmittee was-composcd of S.;H. Bliim, chairman'; Julius Weill and M.. Hirsch, vice-chairmen; Lee Levi, treas¬ urer, and Louis Duga, secretary. New- j ark, under the chairmanship of M., Schbnberg, and Chillicothe, with Sam L.. Segar as. chairman, and E.L. Bergman as .V^ice-chairman, also are named as i having acquitted themselves niost cred¬ itably. In Piqua,. the committee was headed 'by Meyer Louis, chairman, with. Emanuel Kahn, ' vice-chairman,' Louis \ Ostertag, treasurer, and Samuel Kastner, secretary. The drive in Lima was Un¬ der the leadership, of Max Bernstein. The Zanesville effort, was led by L. H. Weber, chairman,. and Sam Lind, vice- chairman. , All these'are included.in the apprecia¬ tion accorded by the national.headquar-: ters of the United Jewish Campaign to Mr. Goodman as general chairnian of the drive in the Central Ohio Zone, and. to his co-workers of the regional organ-. iration, Edward J. Schanfarber of Co¬ lumbus, r^ional associate chairman and leader of the. Columbus campaign, and Simon Lazarus, regional treasurer. The Central Ohio achievement was a fitting second to Cleveland's thriHing campaign last spring, which topped its, quota of $350,000 with $494,000, in an unprecedented outburst of response. The northern zone result, against a quota of $550,000, was $7G8,000.,' The drive in this region was headed by. John Anis- field of Cleveland as regional chairman. Both these records; have been matched by the Cincinnati drive, the key, effort. in the third Ohio. Zone, which, after raising its original quota from $250,000 to $300,00' completed its campaign last month with $350,060,' Samuel Ach of ^ Cincinnati, was the drive .chairman for ihJs district.
