You don't always have to drink mi!k from contented cows to be happy. A Colorful Observation Rumor also says tbat Tenenbaum is planning a trilogy of works on the several aspects of sex. Well, wc ought to be ablc_ to use them—there are only several inillion hooks now on the subject—and .none oi them seem to say very much. This sex preoccupation reminds me of a storv that the late Jamiis Huiicker of "Pathos of Distance" fame told. It seems that a lecturer speaking before a colored congregation cast forth the observation that "after all, there is only a little <Iii- ference between the sexes." "Bless the Lord for that little differ¬ ence," iilterrupted one bf the colored brethren. Those Jewish Angles I'm not quite sure whether we should always bless the Lord about it. As a member of the Jewish fold where the rule of "gam zu iatov" holds sway, I suppose we should, but consider the Starr Faithful case. But I do not intend to go into any oi the esoteric or philosophical angles of that affair. Several Jewish angles have apiieared to help out the Jewish news commentator. I refer to the fact that it appears that Samuel Untermyer is the lavvycr and friend of Dr. Carr and Dr. Brill, the Jewish p.4ycho-analyst who has been extensively quoted. Starr Faithful and Dr. Brill I only saw an extract of Dr. Brill's remarks, and so perhaps should not speak, but what I did see, seems to nie totally wrong. . :, The great psycho-analyst speaking of Starr Faithful brought forth this gen^ eralizatioiK "that a woman to be happy must needs have sonic one man very much in love with her." Now it seems to me that this is just the reverse of the truth, or at best only the half and the lesser half of the truth. For it seems to me that Starr Faithful must have had any number of liicn who could have been very much in love vvith her. The trouhle with her was that she was vtry much in love with another person, I do not know whether I make myself clear, but the point I am trying to make is that it is easier to be loved than to love, and the fact that someone may love you may nevertheless leave you cold as a day in Decemijer. ' Vicki and Starr If vou've seenthc "hit" play of that Jewish playwright, Vicki Baum, Grand 'Hotel, you recall the character, who knowing he is an incurable and must soon die, almost exults in the (act, as he looks on deiiantlv at the whole world. Nobody can harm him now. He laughs at every¬ body. The claws of the universi: have been clipped as far as he is concerned. Sounded melodramatic, but consider that last letter of Starr. Now, at least, she almost glowers at yoii in ecstasy— she can cat how mucli she wants without caring whether she gains or not. She can tcll people that they are too fat, or that she doesn't like their clothes. She can flirt with all the men, whose winks and advances on the streets she has secretly relished, but had before conven¬ tionally ignored. , Fiction will have to step on the gas to catch up with truth! "The Writlne Itch The itch scribendi is a strange disease. Consider the blows the Jewish iicwspa- jierman of New York, in particular, re¬ ceived during the past year. Young Jii¬ dea went td sleep with its fathers, the ¦Jewish Tribune announced as suffering from a case of coma, seems to have re¬ lapsed into iierpctuai slumber, the Nciv Palestine appears to have gone, on that 18 day reducing diet, the Forward stopped its English page, even the New York World, which for so many years offered one of the most lucrative fields for the Jewish writer, is "olav'hashalom." I could go oil and cite more and more fatalities, but I sec, you already have your handkerchief on your eyes. They Keep Trying You would think that "would learn 'em," as the little ungrammaticat school boy said, "Well, you're all damp,'-' as the slang expression goes. In the first place, there is talk of the Forward coming out with a monthly English magazine, there is even talk of a Yiddish daily seeking to resurrect the Jewish Trihuiic, and in another qnarler, conies the persistent clat¬ ter about an effort to start a free speaking sort of Jewish organ—to "tcll the truth about tilings Jewi,sh." New York's Peculiar Situation The fact is that New York offers the paradox of being at the same time the largest Jewish city and the most dilhcult one lo run a successful Jewish publica¬ tion. The reason for that is two-fold. The _ first reason is, that by (he very fact of the enormous Jewish population of New York, the ordinary genera! dailies, give extensive space to Jewish news. A Jew¬ ish paper iinist give excellent coverage indeed, to give more Jewish news, than say, the New York Times, Secondly, that Jewish social, community (Continued on fiatje 4) Los Angeles Talmud Torahs Close for the Lack of Funds LOS ,\NGliLliS. — 'J'he Talmud Torahs under the auspices of the Jcwisli Kdiicational Association closed their doors today on more than (iilO children for lack of funds, h'or a period of several niontlls the teachers have been working without iiay in the hope tliat the United Jewish Welfare Fund drive recently completed would bring theni relief. The drive was not a success and no money was forthcoming lo meet a deficit of at least $11,OOU, most of which was uue to the teachers for back salaries. Ac¬ cording to Dr. George J, Saylin, presi¬ dent of the Jewish Kducatioiial Assoeia- lion, heroic efforts have been made within the iKist few months to finance the Tal¬ mud Torahs but the resiwnse was not great. The Talmud Torahs arc chiefly in the Beyle Heights section of Los Angeles, and, until recently congregations other than those of the Orthodox Jews paid little attention to them. Recently, how¬ ever, the interests of several reiorni rab¬ bis have been elicited and plans are now being discussed how to flnance the schools so that they may reopen in the fall. Sons of the American Revolution By JOSHUA BENDON Julius Baer Plan's Community Gardens for Congested Districts of St. Louis ST. LOUIS.—To akl families in con¬ gested districts of St. Louis to raise veg¬ etables and flowers with free facilities, Julius A. Baer, chairman of the board of Stix, Baer and Fuller Co., one of the city's leading department stores, today proposed a plan to establish a number of community gardens for which he will supply the needed futids. The plan of Mr. Baer, who is one of the, city's outstanding Jews and well- known for his interest in the relief of the poor, is based on the cominitnity gar¬ den idea, so popular in a number of Eu¬ ropean cities.. If the plan succeeds here it will be tried in other (>arts of the coun¬ try. Air. Baer wants these gardens to seri'e as recreational facilities. They arc to be located on unimproved vacant lots in variou.^ parts of the city. Mr. Baer has already issued a, call to land owners to assist in the project by furnishiiis the land. He will supply free flowers,, vegetable seeds, toqls for cul¬ tivation and fertilizer for the soil. Mr. Baer will also build a central toolhouse with Jockers for the tooi.s of each gar- denert Unemployed families will he greatly aided by this'^scheme it was in¬ dicated wheri Mr. Baer announced that at the rear of each lot suitable places for shelter will be established.. Use of the gardens will he free. Any citizen who can show that he is without facilities for gardening will be eligible for a garden plot on one of the lots, Mr. Baer declared. ¦ Each gardener is to use his own judgment as to what he wishes to plant, Mr. Baer said. Mr. Baer is asking the city, the board of education and a number of philan- thropically-minded people to assist him in carrying out !iis plan in time to plant for next spring. The gardens^ will be .supervised by a committee of citizens who will donate their services, . Coming here as a boy of 17, Mr. Baer has heen in business in St. Louis since 18!)2. His present plan is the result of a visit to his sfster in Nuremberg, Ger¬ many, where he observed the community garden xitan in operation. EDITOR'S NOTE: The anniversary of this country's birthday provides Air. Uendon with reason for this brief glance into American revolutionary history ana ihe part played by the Jews.' This article, especially written for The Ohio Jewish Chronicle, is a companion piece tu the story of the Jeivish Daughters of the RevoUtlion which appears elscivhcre in this is.^ue. When Jnly fourth rolls around in the regular cycle of the seasons, and patri¬ otic orators speak their lines on the rev¬ olutionary contributions of "our ancesr tors," Jews from Florida to its rival state oil the Pacific Ocean and from the Gulf of Mexico to the region of the Great flakes need have no fear of em- harraftsmcnt. On the contrary, they too may wax eloquent in their own right. Thu scroll of honor of their ancestors in the years when American freedom was being forged on the anvil of history is a long and fascinating one. It becomes in addition, a remarkable manifestation when viewed against the backgroiutd of this historic fact: that oiit of a population of close to four millions, the. jews, it has heen estimated, summed up to no more than three thousand. From obscure accounts, from old letters grown musly with time, from the yel¬ lowed leaves of contemporary gazettes there arises the truly magnificent story of the Jewish participation in the war *hat made thirteen colonics into an inde¬ pendent nation. ' The three thousand col¬ onists who belonged to the Mosaic per¬ suasion constituted less than the prover¬ bial seasoning; but like the strongest of seasonings they exerted an influence far in excess of their comparative bulk. Furthermore, , in a country divided against itself; when patriot rebels were mortal foes of patriot Tories it was no more than natural that the division should extend into the ranks even of that small nnniber (of three thousand. But it is of historical interest and even of some sig¬ nificance that by far the majority of thut number ivas conspicuous on the side of the declarants for independence. . Even before hostilities broke put Jews were' actively supporting the colonial leaders in their effort for autonomy from the motherland. ' In Philadelphia several of the sons of the American Revolution signed an agreement to discontinue the importation of goods from England. Among those who signed arc several names that have a familiar ring: Benjamin Levy, Sainson Levy, Joseph Jacobs. Hyman Levy, Jr.. David Franks, Mathias Bush, Michael Gratz, Barnard Gratz and Moses Mor¬ decai. In South Carolina, a year before the Declaration was signed. Francis Salvador, a hero if ever there was one, was elected to' menibership in the provincial assembly of that colony. He was highly regarded in that body and held posts on' its most important committees. When the colony was attacked by Indians at the instigation of the Briti.sh, Salvador raised the alarm and took part in several of the skirmishes tbat followed. He died a month after the Declaration of Independence was signed, scalped at the hands of the savage allies of England. In Georgia, one Jew, David Emanuel. lived through stirring war experiences in Chief Justice Cardozo Gets Annual Roosevelt Award For Distinguished Service NEW YORK.—Chief Judge Benja¬ min N. Cardozo of the Court of Apiwals of New York State is one of the three winners of the Roosevelt Medals for dis- tinguifehed service during I!f31, according to an announcement by James R. Garfield, president of the Roosevelt Memorial As¬ sociation. In awarding bim the medal the announcement says: "As Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, it has been said of him by a former Governor (Alfred E. .Smith) that he 'embodied every qualifica-' tioii consonant with the highest judicial ideals; a scholar of immeasurable attain- inents, a lawyer of unbonnded legal erudi¬ tion, the very embodiment of impartiality, fairness and justice.'' "At a time when some of the lower courts have been iiiidcr fire, his integrity, love of justice and highminded approach to ttie duties of his liost have heen a model and an inspiration to the courts thrungliout the country, and a token to the public of the soundness of their ju¬ dicial system. His i>enetrating mind and unusual literary felicity have clarified for the legal world the function of the judge ill shaping an<l developing the, law. "Ui.s judicial opinions and decisions have high authority in all parts of the United States, revealing a spirit con¬ vinced tliat human .sympathy is nut incom¬ patible with judicial integrity and rev¬ erence for the past, and a mind 'supple enough lo go to the great armory of legal luaxims and draw out the one best fitted to bring ilie law into accord with the present strivings and deserts of man¬ kind,' His crealive intellect has played a significant part in the adjustment of legal and judicial conceptions to changing so¬ cial conilitimis," Judge Cardozo, who is a native and resident of New York, is of .Si>anisb-Jew- ish ancestry. In li»27 he wgs elected for a full .term as Cliief Judge. When former President Coolidge in 1027 in¬ vited Judge Cardozo to .succeed tbe late Oscar S. .Straus as a member of the Mague Tribunal, be declined on the ground that he did not believe a judge should hold any other office. battles; once he escaped almost miracu¬ lously irum death at the hands of an enemy squadron tbat had captured him. Ill ieiil a gratctul state rewarded him for ins rcvoiuiionary exploits and for many 'iiiuliier service to his lellaw citizens by electing hiin governor of Georgia. Aiiutner iigiire of exceptional interest waa David Salisbury Franks, who at¬ tained tile rank ot Colonel iu the rebel army, iie was a iiieinDer of Oeneral tsenedict Arnold's stalf but was cleared of any complicity in his su[>erior's act uiireason. In the later years of the revolution he was sent on several ininor aipiomatic missions. .Miother Franks who distinguished him¬ self in the lorces ol the revolution was v^uiuiiul Isaac Franks who enlisted in 1770 when he was no more than seventeen >eiiia uiU. At one time he was captured ¦jy the iiritish near Long Island but he managed to pscape and find his way back to his troops. After the Revolution he settled down in Germantown, Philadel¬ pliia, and at one time rented a house that ne owned to President Washington. llirec brothers, Solomon, William and Abraham Pinto—-the lirst two, graduates of Yale—served in a Connecticut rcgi- riient. The ;Hays family in New Vork made its contribution to the front. The iheftalls ill Georgia helped to recruit al¬ most an entire regiment from ahiong the Jewish population of Savannah. Captain Cohen of Virginia, Major Lewis Bush of Pennsylvania, Major Mones oi South Carolina (who was aide de camp to the gencrar in chief), Captain de la Motta, Jacob dc Leon, Reuben Etting (who en¬ listed at the age of nineteen;, Major Solomon Bush, also of Pennsylvania, Manuel Mordecai Noah (the father of th^: founder of Ararat), Lieutenant Abraham Seixas of Georgia—these were only a few of the many Jews who flocked to the colors in support of liberty. The battlefield was not the only field upon which the Jews of that time did their liberal bit. The unquestioned services of Haym Salomon are to be recalled in this connec¬ tion. He served not as a soldier in the ranks, but in his capacity as, banker and financier; in his own way he was very likely worth as much as several regi¬ ments of soldiers. Nor was Hayra Salomon, great as were his contributions to the cause of the im¬ poverished continentals, the only oiie df his. tribe to offer thern financial aid. ; The records are incomplete on these soldiers behind the front, who entrusted their fortunes as well as their lives to the colonists. But marty a patriotic figure emerges. There was Jbsepli Simon r.f Pennsylvania. Jacob I. Cohen of Georgia, the Gratzs of the City of Brotherly Love, their compatriot and neighbor, Jacrb Mart, and in Georgia Mordecai Slieftall; men who individually and collectively of¬ fered their monies and their credit so that the struggling colonies might be free. ;.Here is a roster of men. faithful to great adventures in human liberation, of whom every American has reason to be proud. The patriot who recalls the events of that day of days one hundred and fifty-odd years age can justly reserve special encomiums for the part played by an cnlightenEd and patriotic fragment of •SOOO.

UNDERWRITERS AWARD In ortier to supply Jewish students al Oxford University with kosher meals, the London (England) Lodge of B'nai B'rith has been financially supi>orting a scheme during the last two years whereby a lady keeps a restaurant for Jewish students. The restaurant is now more or less self- supporting, and advices from London are to the effect that an ever-growing num- ner of students are,taking advantage of the kosher food. The London Lodge of B'nai B'rith is a leader in all Jewish movements in Eng¬ land. During the i>ast year it sup[>orted, among other things, the Jewish, Adult Education movement in England, which it founded' itself three years ago, the Habimah Players, the Sabbath Observ¬ ance Bureau, and the Palestine Research Committee. It arrangetl lectures for non- Jews by prominent B'nai B'rith members and others; as many as S.OOO persons at¬ tended some of these affairs. A very powerful Peace Committee was recently formed by the Lodge, and it was decided to devote at least one eve¬ ning every session to peace propaganda. .\ few months ago a special committee was appointed for the purpose of making inquiries into the alleged anti-Jewish dhr crimination, in England, and the report is now being examined. The Lodge is seriously considering,the orgaiiizalion' of a Je\i'isb youth fraternity similar to the .\nierican .\, S. A. of B'nai B'rith. Such an organization would have branches all over England. Tbe Lodge will publish the first number of its own newspaper early in July, aii<l its latest endeavors are in tbe direction of estab¬ lishing a Jewish Statistical Bureau. The Lodge's social service committee is supplying gratis workers tn public bod¬ ies in connection with clubs, Jc\yish'pris¬ oners, study circles, and similar purposes. In one club tbis comniittee is actually responsible for all tbe literary functions and public meetings.

Ussishkin Sees Dr. Weizmann Changing Mind at the Last Minute BASLE.—That Dr. Chaim Weizmann will, at the last minute, change his mind: at the Zionist Congress, and will remain president of the Zionist Organization, was the opinion expressed today by Men- acbem M. Ussishkin, world president of the Jew.isb National Fund, on bis ar¬ rival here to.attend the,Congress, Discussing problems of the Congress with the Jewish Telegraphic x\gency, Mr, Ussishkin expressed regret that the Con- gres.'^ wil devote itself mainly lo two questions, the attitude of the Jews towards tbe British government and the attitude towards the present Zionist Executive. These two questions will overshadow such other inijiortant matters as fitiaiices, land . aild 1 is.sucs concerning the development of the Jewish National Home, Mr. Ussishkin declared. While not advocating the breaking off nf relations with tbe British government, Mr. Ussishkin is of the opinion, that in^ its stand towards the Mandatory Power', no compromise should bq litadc. The, Congress, as well as Jewish public opinion generally, he believes, should tell the world "as loudly as possible about the open and secret injustices which a^e being , perpetrated ,against Jewish interests in Palestine by the,British government." With regard to the Congress' attitude to the Zionist Executive, Mr. Ussishkin is of the opinion that the motto should be "no victor and no loser. A united froiit is tbe most important factor in the present difficult moment; a united front composed of all groups is the only remedy now when the situation cannot be any worse." i Pointing out tliat he believes there still are a number of friends of the Jews among the members of the British gov¬ ernment, including Premier MacDonald, who are, however, being misled by offi¬ cials of tbe Colonial Ofiice "who are out¬ spoken anti-Semites," Mr, Ussishkin is of the opinion that the best way to im¬ prove the present Jewish situation in Pal¬ estine is by bringing more people into the coimtry. "The more Jews we have, the strongr.r our position will be," he said. "Wc can huy as much land as we want if we only have the funds." Council Announces Detroit Convention Dates for 1932 v.
