Four thousand iiicu and woiileii, representing a cross section of Jcwisli life in New York ami America, crowded into Temple Emaini-El, to pay tlicir last respects, while a (.'roup equal in number, stood for two hours outside tile Temple, unable to gain adiiiittuice.

Brown, last wcclc adde<l anotlicr quarter of a inilHoii to the fund in checks of $100 and over bringing the total of .such contributions, by last Fridny, up to $1.27.\10fi. Response, in the form of contributions, ha.s come from no less than 1170 towns and villages in America. "Tlie list of cities heard from constitutes almq.'it a complete atlas of America," Mr, Brov/n declare<L From icy Alaska to torrid Florida, the checks arc pouring in, Hun¬ dreds who had never before given to a Jewish cause, seem to be echoing- the \v(irt\s of the propliet: "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its cunning." An Increasing Curve Not only are the letters, bringing ctiecks nowing.into the New York offices from city, town and hamlet, but amaz- infjly, according to* Mr. Krown instead of a diminution, tticre i.s the likelihood of an increasing curve, particularly with the approach of tlie Jcwisli holi¬ days. .Hundreds gf .synagogues through¬ out America have informed the New York headquarters of their intention of making special appeals oti Rosh tlashana and Yom Kippur. "Mnny communities nnd individuals throughout tlie country have been urging me to fix a quota for the whole country and to assign a definite .sum for each commimity to raise,'" Mr. Brown said yesterday. "Tliat oinnot be done until we have more definite word from the re¬ lief and reconstruction committees that arc acting for us in Palestine. "Reports by responsible new.spapcr cor¬ respondents in Palestine are to the effect that" it will take at least $5,000,000 to cover ttic actual damage that was done during the riots. For Hebron alone, the damage is estimated by them at $7,^0,000, and it is pointed out by the Jerusalem correspondent of tlie 'London l^nancial News' that the Palestine Treasury is neitlier liable nor able to meet such heavy obligations. It adds that it is unlikely that mucli loot will be recovered from the Arabs, and there docs iiof seem to be any way to collect indemnities from tliein. . "Qearly, the tremendous loss wlifch was inflicted on the Jews of Palestine must be met by their brethren through¬ out the world. A Familiar Story 'Tliere is no need now to stress the economic condition of the Jews in Eu¬ rope; that is a story familiar to the Jews of America from tlie facts about' the European Jewisti conditions which I have laid before them so often as Chair¬ man of ttie United Jewish Campaign.

We can and we must restore the life of Palestine as it existed before the fatal Friday, August 23." A most pleasing phase of the contri- Imtions during tbe week were the num¬ ber of ''repeat" remittances which came in. Julius Rosenwald, who was one of the first lo respond to the Appeal with a check for $25,000, manifested his con¬ tinued sympathy with the. cause this week again, when he turned over to the Emer¬ gency treasury, a refund c;heck which he had received from one of his numer¬ ous other pliilanthroptes. A number of Yiddish dailies tliis week ficnt in funds wliich they had been gath¬ ering from their readers, which con- .siderably augmcntcfi the general total. The Day remitted its third check of ¦iilO.OOO, with the promise tliat there would be at least another check for. a similar ainnnnt. Ttie Jewish Moriu'iig Journal sent in its second, check for $10,000. The appeals of the Forward and the Jewish World of Philadelphia and the Jewish Courier of Chicago are resulting in a flow of contributions to the .funds being raised by those papers for the Emergency tre.isury.

YORK.—With the presentation on the first Sunday in November of the first of ils new radk) programs, the (icncral Committee on Jewisli Religions ttadio Programmes will inaugurate a .series of broadcasts, new in concept, .wide in scope, and a radical departure from those offered for the past six :md ;i half years iu New York. Now, over the National Broadcasting Red Network, comprising many key stations and reach¬ ing niilfiuns of listeners, these regular broa<lcasls, originating from Station WEAF, New York, will mark the fur¬ thest advance yet m.ide by any Jev/ish organization to disseminate among the American people a knowledge of wliat American Judaism represents. David N. Mosessolin, as ttie chairman of a cntnmii1<:e which includes fifty of the most prominent Jews in New York, is the guiding figure behind thi.s great movement. The aUsenoe of religious propaganda :md the emphasis on the al¬ truistic principles upon which they are based will combine to make thest pro¬ grammes one of the outstanding fea¬ tures on the air. The Cbtablisliment of a universal good¬ will, the .stimulation uf tbe finer and more beautiful ideals of mankind, the attempt to aojuaint the world wttti the charm and solid beauty of things Jewish, will he some of the more important aims of these programmes. No longer will Jewish radio broadcasts be a thing merely for Jews, according to Mr. Mos- essohn and membct'S of ttic comiritlec, but they will be made so interesting, so appealing, so beautiful, that the average listener, tuning in accidentally, will be held by ttiem and will make a point oE listening to them regular. Tlie men who constitute the committee to select, arrange and conduct these pro¬ grammes are all leaders in tlieir own field. ' The complete list of names is suffi- 'The Arabs and Jews Are Good Friends/' Sayd Speaker at B'nai BVith Mtg. Recent Outbreahs in the Holy Land Were Discussed at Open Forum of Zion Lodg:e "The great masses of the Arab popu¬ lation of Palestine and Trans-Jordania arc not anti-semitic. In fact they have always been manifesting a spirit of friendliness and cooperation whh their Jewish neighbors," declared Mr. Aaron M. Neustadt in his address Monday be¬ fore Zion Lodge. "The blame for the recent outbreaks against the Jewish people of Palestine," he continued /'must r<est upon the Grand Mtifti of Jerusalem and hi>t cohorts, the Effendis who circulated false and mali¬ cious rumors against the Jews of Pales¬ tine in particular and the Zionists In gen¬ eral." Mr. Neustadt reviewed the history of the relationship ttiat has existed between Arabs atid Jews throughout the hibtory of the world and pohited out periods in w^hicli Arab and Jewish contact was fruitful of salient results for culture and eient indication of (he lugh type of broadcasts that the radio owner may an¬ ticipate. Headed l)y Mr. Moscssohn as chairman, Henry S. Ileiidricks as trea¬ surer and Rabbi Samuel M. Cohen as secretary, tlie committee numbers among its c<iiistitncrits such men as Dr. Cyrus Adler, Jacob B'illikopf, David .A. Brown, .Abram I. Klkus, Nathan Levy, Benja- ¦ min C- Ribman, Ralpli E. Samuel, Nathan ¦ D. Shapiro, Roger W. Straus, Sol M. Slrobck and Morris D, Waldman. Men of the highest calibre and achieve¬ ment, the committee members arc de¬ voting their invaluable time, their re¬ sources and their excellent abilities to huilding up a teries of programmes that will rival in interest any of the long established and highly popular features of the conmiercial broadcasters. With the Jewish talent at their command, with the avenues of entertainment and edu¬ cation open to them, with the splendid facilities whhin their reach, the commit¬ tee feels that they can offer to the world a new type of program, one which in it¬ self will be the peer of anything ever done in the field of religious radio broad¬ casts. The selection of members for the com¬ mittee was a diflicult task. Men of vi¬ sion, . jiossessed of a definitely mature judgment, of a thorough understanding of the American Jew, of tolerance and of .in appreciation of beauty and art, were ttie type required. Ari acciuaintancc with the problems of die Jew, au ability to rationalize tolerantly, a desire to at¬ tain world-\yide peace, were aU necessary requisites. The first renowned figure to accept ineniberBhip on the committee was the Lite Louis Marshall, whose recent death removed from tlie ranks of the Jews a man of inestimable value, :i man whose entire life was devoted to his people, and (Continned on page 7) civilization. He expressed his firm con- iction that there is no danger of Eng¬ land going hack on its promise to facili¬ tate the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. He deplored the fact tliat Jewish commu- ni.sts of Soviet Russia and other sections of the world have been rcjoichig instead of sorrowing at the sad spectacle of Jew¬ ish blood being shed in the sacre<l land of their fathers. (!)thers who spoke during the course of the meeting are Rabbi -I^e J, Levin¬ ger, Rabl)i Solomon Rivlin, and Attorney Roy Jacob Stone. These speakers brouglit home the fact that the policy of the Zionist movement is in Iiarmony with the best opinion of western civilization, and that the recent trials and tribula¬ tions in the Holy Land tar from weaken¬ ing the determination of ttic Jewish pio¬ neers, lias spurred tlicm on to greater and better efforts. They also pointed out the fact that the sufferings of the Pales¬ tinian Jews have evoked the sympathy of all nations and have tended to bring a greater .spirit of unity and harmony among all the scattered remnants of Israel. Besides other important business mat¬ ters discussed, there was quite a bit of discussion regarding the present drive for new members in the local B'nai ll'rith Lodge. President Louis Rosen- tlial urgcfl all present to cooperate in the task before the lieads of the campaign. "We want to secure," he said, "at least ' new members for the Alfred M.
