There are those who feel that the care of orplmiis is a public diity. No public in'stitution could do for the chil¬ dren what this institution has done. None could," Introducing President Cohen of the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, Chairman Lazarus reviewed the work of the Order and described it-V achieve¬ ments in philanthropy and social ^er^iee* President Cohen traced the history of the Home and its ineeption in a inove- niciit inaugurated withui the membership uf District No, 2 of the Order more than (il years ago.

Many- of its former in¬ mates have become leaders in their re¬ spective communities. Eleven members of the board are former children of the Home; the architect of Bellefaire is a graduate of the institution; Alumni Hall is a free-will offering of those who have been cared for by the Home in other years*. Both competence and l»ve have gone into tlie construction and; furnishing of Bellefaire, Rabbi Silver said in his ad¬ dress. In dedicating these buildings, just what are you dedicating? In the first place you are dedicating a group of buildings, simply and artistically con¬ structed, in spacious s.'ar round ings, per¬ fectly etjuipped and tastefully decorated, Both competence.,'and'love have gone into the planning. There is evidence at every turn of skillful craftsmanship, provident management and ^ solicitude on the part '1 Ik- iicxt, general meeting of Zion' Lodjic. \-o..(;2, I. O. n.

Colicn'class on Monday eve¬ ning, Nuvcinbcr 25th. t'foniincnt men of Coluinbus as vvell as. other cities, will participate -jn- the exercises. The degree team of Zion Lodge is now rehearsing ficir this iuispicious aiid memorable event staged in honor of that noble and conse¬ crated Cincinilati Israelite, the Hon. Al¬ fred M. Coheiv international president of B'nai B'rith and president of the Board of Governors of the Hebrew Union College, the world's .greatest Re¬ form Theological School. ' It IS interesting to note that at the great coiiinninal dinner held/in Cincin¬ nati recently in. honor of Mr. Cohen, this venerable gentleman received trib¬ utes from such men as William Howard Taft, chief justice of the' United States Supreme Court; Nicholas Longworth, speaker of the Hoiise of Representatives, and James J. Davis, secretary of labor r VIr. Hoover's cabinet. ''Mr. Cohen has been the head of the I. O. B. B. since 1925. His services ha|vc been recognized by all Jewish leaders everywhere. It is therefore fitting and proper that Zion Lodge in common with all B'nai B'rith Lodges throughout the world induct « class, in his honor.

It wa.s, however, in August, 1!)2!), when the tragic events of the Arab attacks on the Jew.^ overwhelmed Pales¬ tine and .sliocked the workl, that Mr. Samuel, hving in Tcl Aviv, at once joiiicd tlie Jewish Self-Defcnse Corps and took part in resisting the Arab at¬ tacks. Mr. Samuel has* recently returned to this country. His vivid description of the events that, traiisp.ired in Pales¬ tine, and his documented evidence on the situation as regards responsibility for the outbreaks have arouwd widespread inter- es-t both among Jews and the general world. Mr. Samuel's experiences in Palestine have culminated in a book called "What Happened in Palesfrinq," which promises greatly to enhance the literary prestige he gained with his earlier volumes, "Yon conditions. Few men living today have his mental e<|U.ipmeiit, or his opportunity for knowing Jewish life tbruout the world. As a member, of the United States Pogrom Investigating Commis¬ sion to Poland and then as* a member of the International Reparations Commis¬ sion in Paris, Berlin and Vienna, Mau¬ rice Samuel, came into close i>ersoiial contact with the leading. dif>Iohiats of Europe and .'Xmcrica. In the movement for the rebuilding of Palestine, Mr. SainueL occupies a com¬ manding position. In l!l:ii, Mr. Samuel went to Palestine at the invitation of Dr. Cliaini Weizmann, Prewdent of the World Zionist Organization. Since that time, he lias made numerous-visit*: which have supplemented with actual experi¬ ence the intimate knowledge that he has of the historical traditions behind the Jewish effort to rebuild Palestine. In June, l!Hif>, Mr. Samuel returned to [Palestine, where he decided to spend a number of months each year for bis' lit- Geiitiles," "I, the Jew," "The Jewisli An¬ thology," and other vohimeV. Knowing that. Mr. Samuel was one. of the few Aincricaii Jewish leaders in Palestine during the time of the massacres in the Holy Land, keen interest has been aroused in his account as an eyewitness of the cvc'nttf that -transpired there. There arc very few cities in the U. S. where Mr. Samuel has not spoken on behalf of the Zionist Movement. He pos-icsses hosts of followers in every section of this land a? well as in foreign countries. Among those who are assisting in ar¬ ranging for Thursday evening's meeting are litibert L. Mellman, Allen Tarshish, Roy J. Stone, Rabbi Rivlin. A. Seff, Ben B. Friedman, Cantor Ansel Freed¬ man, Cantor Solomon Grodner, Joseph Solove, and Aaron M, Neustadt. Repre¬ sentatives of the Hadassah groups and the O. S. U. Avukah. are also assisting. The Frank For Council Organization Thanks Al! Who Cooperated To Put Melville D. Frank Over HOUSANDS. of Chronicle readers are rejoicing at the glad news of kelville D; Frank's election to a council- manic post. They feel that this fine, up¬ standing young man with a clean, ex¬ emplary record wilt reflect credit not only upon the! fair name of this, "no mean city," but also upon all Colimibus Jewry. The following statement by Messrs. Ben Neustadt and Attorney Harry Schwartz, co-chairhian of the Frank For Council Organization, i^ apropos at this time: -^ Nothing succeeds like success I The Frank For Council Organization wishes to thank everyone who made ppb- sible the tremendously gratifying success in the Municipal Election Of last Tues¬ day.

This unprece¬ dented, victory , surpassed the fondest hopes and expectations of all of Frank'i supporters.' To all the workers, the voters, and (o those wlio contributed to bring about this wonderful victory, I wish to ex¬ press my sincerest thanks and apprecia¬ tion. , (Signed), BEN Z.
