Central Ohio's Only Jewish Newspaper Reaching Every Home A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWBH HOME Devoted to American and Jewish Ideals Vol. XIII —No. 38 COLUMBUS. OHIO, SKP'n':.\Il!EK 1 9. 19.30 Per Year $3.00 j Per Copy lOt Scanning the Horizon By DAVro SCHWARTZ A Happy New Year Benjamin Franklin as a youth in Boston once shocked his parents by suggesting that time could be saved, if instead of saying grace before each dish of sauerkraut, his father would siniply recite the prayer before the whole barrel. It occurs to mc that something of the same idea could be applied to other fields. There is this matter o£ read¬ ing newspapers. Far be it from nie as a veteran of the fourth estate to say ought in disparagement of news¬ papers. Indeed, what I am going to sugge.>it is simply an extension of something that has already taken place, in homeopathic • form, in the making of newspapers. If you live in any of the big cities, nowadays^ you do not of course, wait until" Monday morning to get your Monday newspaper. You buy it on Sunday evening. .:-¦ Marshall and Ma^l I remember some years ago work¬ ing on a Cincinnati paper. I was sent by that veteran journalist, Ike Pitchell, then managing editor of the Commer¬ cial-Tribune to cover the organization meeting of the Joint Distribution Committee in Cincinnati. If it wasn't that, it was something like that. Any¬ way, Louis Marshall and Judge Julian Mack were to be the principal speak¬ ers. My paper would be on the-street about 10 p. m., in other words before the meeting was over. And yet we wanted a. full story of the meeting. Ordinarily, speakers release some ad¬ vance copy of their addresses, but in this case, neither had any. I asked Mr. Marshall if he could tell me- what he was going to say. . ¦ "Well," he replied, "you heard mc at lunch today. You won't go wrong,. if you keep to the same general track." Well, that wasnT so bad. I put the same question to Judge Mack. "I haven't the least idea of what I am going to say," he replied. "Well, Judge," we said, "I am go¬ ing lo niake a speech for you.'* "Go ahead," he replied, 'T have had worse things liappen to me," And so at 10 o'clock tliat night, the people coming out of the -theatre, where the mass meeting was held, read the speeches, which neither of the speakers made. And were they any , the worse for it? I-doubt it. When It Didnt AVork Sometimes of course writing the news in advance of the nieeting doesn't work. I remember once hold¬ ing down the telegraph desk on one paper. It was the night of Speaker Joe Cannon's birthday. Cannon then was in the eighties,! believe. Well, to get d'own to the story, tliat night a wire came over the Associated Press line about 7 p. m., an hour be¬ fore the nieeting was actually held, describing in great detail the dinner to Cannon. Speaker Cannon was quoted among other things as saying that he didn't know what it felt like to be old, that he himself felt like a two year old baby on a frosty morn¬ ing, etc, etc. Wc immediately edited the copy, marked it Box, Page 1 and sent it down the chute. About two hours later, the A. P. came with another wire: "Hold Can¬ non story: Cannon unable to be pres- cnt on account of illness," Evidently, he hadn't felt like a two year old baby on a frosty morning. A Little Explanation - Why am I telling all this? Be¬ cause" brethren and sistrcn, because this is Rosh Hashonah—New Year— and I want to see if we can't begin the new year, by'extending the same idea. For all of its deficiencies, it has, in common with Franklin's sug¬ gestion, much to commend it. . Why, if it is alright to get out the Monday morning newspaper Sunday night.; can't wc get out all the news of th^ forthcoming year on New Year's day? I think we won't go far wrong, if we do. Now, I am going to tellyou what is going to happen iu the Jew¬ ish world during the coming year. I don't say it will be complete! But it will be as complete as the early morniiig edition issued the night be¬ fore callefl the bull dog. Well, why can't we get a New Year's bull dog? Forecasting the New Year Eddie Cantor will tell a story. The Allied Jewish Campaign will ; appeal for funds. Philip Wattenberg will have coffee 365 days out of the 3(>5 nights at the ' Cafe Royal.

One Hundred Pledges Se¬ cured For the Hadassah Donor Luncheon Fifty New Pledges Announced In this Issue; Affair Will Be Held in November POPULAR LOCAL RABBI RETURNS HOME FROM TRIP "iTjjr^ The Senior Hadassah of Columbus is following the lead of other cities and will sponsor its first $5.00 per-plate—give of get—Donor Luncheon early in No^ vember.

Several iniiKirtant matters concerning Zionist membership, propaganda and cul¬ ture programs will be announced soon. Alfred M. Cohen In vlic ytar just ended there was greater prosperity in the thing*; that really count than in the things that come and go—like Jonah's gourd which came up in a night -and perished in a night. Many personal fortunes were swept away, making the losers realize how fickle is the god of gold and how vain it is to put one'<: trust in him. But in things of the spirit the year was outstanding. It brought the nations a step nearer to a covenant of peace. It saw- alien armies march put of territories they had invested for many years. It recorded settlement of reparations on terms' liiore just thail originally was thought possible because hate had fallen from the eyes of nien^and they could 'sec more clearly. There is less ill will the world over. Milestones have been i>assed on the diffi¬ cult way mankind has trudged so long and so faltcringly. The day dawns when brotherhood ceases to be altogether a po¬ etic fancy. A far off gleam o'crlcaps the horizon and bids men hope. B'nai.B'rith may be proud that it pre¬ sents an example of brotherhood, which please God may speedily be followed by all people. Our far-flung fraternity en¬ circles the globe." It speaks the languages of nearly air nations. Its national loyal¬ ties are with the homeland of its lodges. But all of ns wherever wc may be are one in ideals and purposes, seeking to act justly, striving to show mercy, and as¬ piring to walk humbly with the Author of justice and mercy—the Father of all mankind. So the privilege is ours to be among the bannerr-bcarers of universal brother¬ hood. May each succeeding day of the new year replenish our devotion to this privilege and make us more conscious of our iwrtion of it. May 5691 be for us and for all humanity a year of health and peace and contentment. (Signed) Alfred M. Cohen, President, September, l'i:(0-5GJ)I.
