For ouglit I know, Mr. Hoover may lie' re-elected, despite tlie depression. I 1 do not feci ahrnit Mr. Hoovci^in tile way of tliat l-foover-Mct- lon story, tliey arc telling. Just A Story It seems according to this story that Hoover and Mellon were walking down Pennsylvania Avenue ivhen the President siiddcidy stopped in front of a drug store, "Leiid nie a nickel," said Hoover to Mellon. "What do yon want' a nickel for?" asked Mellon. , "I want to call up one of my friends," said Hoover. "Here's a dime." replied Mellon, "call 11]) both of 'em." Some Possibilities .'\.s T was saying, I don't feel that the President is anywhere near as bereft of friends, as thi.s story woidd Ijave it, and I aiTi quite sure that the public after all realizes that the depression is world-wide, and I don't know whether Hoover or the Dctiiocratic nominee will get the bulk of Jewish voters at the forthcoming vot- iii'^ test. But if the Democrats do get in, which Jews are likely to get political plums? Here, I am frying to add to the "ovcr- I)rediction" again—hut what can you i]o'' You know how it is. I have a feeling that perhaps the best prize, in the case of Democratic victory, would come to Judge Cardozo, Chief Justice of the Ncvv York Court of Ap¬ peals. In the event of k vacancy op the -Siipreinc Court,, I suppose, no Dcmircratic president would fail to give Cardozo the Iirefercnce for any Supreme Court iiosi- tion. It is generally admitted that there is no better jurist in the country than " Cardozo, and his p<ilitical associations arc Democratic. And Some Others Bernard Baruch would be another, to come back into prominence, Particnlarh if Ritchie of Maryland should hapiicn to he the nominee and vict.ir. You recall , that it was at a dinner given by Baruch recently that the Ritchie' Presidential boom vas forra,-,lly hiiiiidicd. Should Newton D. Baker, of Cleve- • land, be the nominee. I suppose the most Iironiinent Jewish friend of the adminis¬ tration would he a rabbi. Abba Hillel Silver'of Cleveland. I am told that Baker entertains a very high opinion of Rabbi Silver. Well, we seem to. be go¬ ing b.ick to the silver standard anyway. If Roojievelt is the nominee and victor, the Lehman brothers and, I presume, Robert Moses, the chairman of the Park Comniissioij of New York would be among those closest to the president; Santa In New York I am told that since the slump set in, some of the Jewish synagogues have found it unnecessary to employ "miiiyau" men. With niieniployment rife, the idle naturally drift to the .s'ynaKOgue_to 'daven" and talk. But times must be even harder than 1 susijectcd, if a story that comes to my cars is true. The central figure of the story is Santa Claus. One of those store Santa Clauses whose job it is to stand near a Christmas . tree, and listen to children tell him what they want for Christmas. And this particular Santa of whom I am Writing looked the part to perfection. His generous bulk, his jovial face, his iwtriarchal heard needed but little arti¬ ficial trimmings, to visualize the Yule- tide saint. And .so he stood—-listening and chatting with the children. ¦ A little girl came up, "You want," spoke up Santv,"a walk- . ing doll and a box of candy?" "Yes," smiled the little girl, . "and a baby brother." "A baby brother. I am all • out of brothers. All I have is a little colored boy, hut he's damaged. If you want, I can give you a pony instead." "Yes, give me a pony instead," said the little girl. - "All right," .said Santy! "Now listen, little girl, do me a little' favor. Here's three cents, go around by the corner and get nie a Morgcn Journal." Test For Humor A professor up at Columbia has been studying reactions to humor. It seems his favorite test is to tell the following story and see how you laugh. One iierson meets another. "How are you?" asks No, I, •First class," replies No. ti. "And how are you?" ^ "Steerage," is the reply. * I might suggest as an improvement to the test the method, said to be used hy Ben Bcrnie in buying humorous material. Ben reads all of this hiuuorous ma¬ terial first to his brother, Dave. If Dave , huighs, Ben doesn't buy it.

Vilna Police Chief Promoted as Jewish Worker Gets 18 Months Prison for Alleged Attack; Kolo Sees Possibility of New Excesses Council of Jewish Juniors Sponsor Victor Chenkin s Appearance Here Jan. 14 Kctiiiiig well in liiii; with the Unitctl iVational Council ol Jewish Juiuors who, jn Sunday Victor Chenhin itght, Dec.

This is the most iniique one man show.. UiHt has ever been in this city and a rare apportunity for Columbus, citizens to see and hear the fot-nicr leading man of Czar's imperial Theater at Moscow. Tliis great actor, is assisted by superb cosluining. premier make up, brilliant acting and a teautiful haritone voice thi-ough which mediums he impersonates the Jester, Italian Nobleman, Gipsy, Ukraiiian Peasant and Old Jewish Patri¬ arch. One of tlie greateist effect.^ achieved by Chenkin is with his fascinating hands, which Eddie Cantor says are the' most wonderful on the international stage. If it were possible to black out tlie entire stage, training lights only on these mar¬ velous hands, the series of characters would still move across the stage, young- rneii, old men, gaj' men and weary men, scholars and peasants. Chenkin was boni at Rostov on the Don, for they say'it was there at the age of l:t that be had bis own theater and knew that he would be an actor. Every action of his daily life was guided hy that one ambition; every thought was directed toward its accoinplisbment. As soon as. be was old enough to walk on the stage and read lines he played his first role, in amateur productions at first, to be sure, but always with a professional future in view. ,A11 the way through the Bcbouls of Rostov and through the Con¬ servatory of Music there, he prepared for the work that was to follow. Shortly after, he made his professional debut in Yekaterinburg. So great was his'success that a company in Moscoiy sl'nt for him. Then came Petrograd and the Imperial Tlieater; rales with Maria Savina and other stars of the Russian theater, and a series of outstanding roles of his own, Cyrano, Shylock, Tartuff, Napoleon in "Madame Sans Gene," Os¬ wald in "Ghosts," the lead in Schiller's "Robbers," a liaujitmann repertory. He toured Roumaniu, Poland, Latvia, Ukra- nia, Czechoslovakia and other countries of Central EuJ-ope and Paris and London. Then followed liis first American tour in VJ2S-2'.> and the repetitions the two succeeding stasons. Mis.'i Helen Smith, 78(1 Franklin Ave., is chairman of the local groui) sponsor¬ ing the sale, thus aiding their national projects and the 'I'ubercukjsis Preven¬ torium. \VARSAW-^(J. T. A.)—The Chief of Police of the Vihia district, Yisjiara, who allegedly had been dismissed as a penalty for permitting the Vilna police to participate ni the anti-Jewish outbreaks, has been promoted to bead the palice de¬ partment in the Posen district, it was re¬ ported today. Simultaneously with this annotnicenient came the report that a Jewish worker, Dworkiu. was sentenced yesterday by the Vilna court to eighteen months' imprison¬ ment on the alleged charge of having beaten a soldier and a Christian woman; neither of wliom appeared in court and whose names even arc unknown. These two developments have aroused the greatest iiwlignation in Jewi.sh circles where the conviction of Dworkiu and the pruniption of Ylszara arc termed an un¬ precedented miscarriage of justice. It is pointed out here that no Chris¬ tians liave yet been placed on trial for their ]>art in their Vilna excesses and no¬ where have prison sentences been |)aRScd upon iiou-Jcwi.';!i participants in the ex¬ cesses throughout the country. The improbability and the flimsiiiess of the charges against Dworkin , were stressed by.his attorney in an hour's ad¬ dress, in which he described the embit¬ tered anti-Semitic atmosphere in \'ihia on tbe first day of the excesses there, Novendjer H.lth. New Outbreahe Possible New outbreaks against the Jews may occur at any moment, it-is stated itKlay in an interpellation submitted in the Sejm by the Club of Jewish Deputies, urging the government to take measures to pre¬ vent their recurrence. The interpellation points out that many local authorities permitted the anti- Jcwisli excesses to continue until tliey received orders from the central authori¬ ties ij] Warsaw. This, the Jewish dep¬ uties assert, proves that not all- local authorities recognize the ihadniissability of anti-Jewish outiireaks. ¦ , ¦ now than at any time previously, the in¬ terpellation continues, in view of the fact that the atmosphere createrl hy tbe out¬ breaks c<iiilinues to be fed and main¬ tained hy tbe anti-Jewish boycott agitA- tion of tbe National Democratic ele¬ ments, rendering new outbreaks jHissihle ut any moment, , 'I'iie interpellation urges the >,'overn- nient to issue instrnctious to the local aulburities that e-xecsses against the Jews are not t'l be permitted iin<le'r any cir- cvunstaiKis, even in the absence of gov eminent orders. It further emphasizes that action must be taken to restrain the press whicii is conducting tbe incitement against tbe Jews. , Numerous Clausus Bill Introduced A formal motiun for the estalilishihent of a Humerus clausus in Polish Univer¬ sities in nrder to give Christian students a percentage in accordance with their mniiber as established by the census no\y in iirogress was introduced in the Sejm today by the National Democrats. T!ie ad6pti<in of such a bill by the Polish I'arliament is considered unlikely inasmuch as the National Democrats do not control a maj<jrify. It is believed here, linivever, that ^tbe bill will ."lerve as a pretext lor new and increased' anti- Semitic agitation on the i>art of the Na¬ tional fJeniocratic youth. The new census, it is further believed, will reduce the ofiicial count of J^ws resilient in Poland, iiiasinucb as tlie ques- tinn of "nationality" was omitted from the census questionnaire. This matter I lia? been the subject of' nnich protest from Jewish leaders. Says Poland Garden of Eden Com¬ pared With U. S. PtjJand is a (ianlen of (Zdcw to the Jewb compared with America, states the anti-Semitic "(iazeta Wars^awska," in¬ viting American Jews to confine their in¬ terest to Ainerican anti-Semitism rather than to Prjiisb affairs.

A.)—Etuil Ludwig. noted German biographer, twlay made it clear that he considers himself a"Jew, in a letter written to Rsriel Carlsbach, one of the editors of the '"Israelitischen Fa- milieiihlaltes." Dr. Ludwig stated that in 1918 he re¬ nounced the Christian faith to which he had been converted at the age of three. "1 regard myself as a Jew and will Al¬ ways regard myself as a Jew, notwith¬ standing tbe fact that I do not belong to any Jewish conununily," he wrote. He emphasized that he renounced Christi¬ anity because in times of jiersecutlon he believes in allying himself wiib the race from which he is descended. Dr. Ludwig's statement sets at rest the controversy in German circles recently concerning his present atfiliation, which nrovoked an inquiry frjJin the editor of the "Israelitischen Paiiiilienblattes." Benefit Bridgre Planned By Agudath Achim Religious School The Agudath ,\chim Religious School members are making plans for a benefit bridge to be held the first week in Fth ruary, lf)li"2, at the Excelsior Club.

Lazarus Sisterhood wilt sponsor a card party and bake sale at the Deshler-Wallick Hotel. Watch the Chronicle for further de¬ tails ! T. L SISTERHOOD BOARD TO MEET MONDAY, DEC. 28 Board members of the Tifereth Israel Sisterhood will meet Monday afternoon, December 28lh, at 1:30 o'clock, in the vestry rooms of the East Broad Street Temple, Cantor Mordecai Herflhm»n .All these .and a good m mj other thoughts flit through one's, nnnd wink listening to tbe sQul-pcntrating oriental melodies which Cantor Hershman weaves around the deep meanini^ words, melodies whicii tti tiie Jew always did nave a sjie- cial mysterious appeal a.-; if shrouded in Cabbalistic awe. and which only the Jew¬ ish people coukl understand and' feel cor¬ rectly. As to Cantor Hershman's voice, it will he no exaggeration to sa\- that no other voice before the public today can matcli it in power and sweetness. Classified as a dramatic tenor of unlimited strength, it is at the same time capable of the most delicate shading and colorature singing iiiiaginablc. With a range, even as a, string from the lowest to die highest notes, it soothes the car with its flexibil¬ ity and gladdens the heart with its sweet sounding .quality. .Vll those who will hear Cantor Hersh- inaii tomorrow night will certainly not forego the rare pleasure of hearing him at the Saturday moriiing services, which really afford a "Chazbn" a chance to shine at his best. However, there may be a number of people w!k> for one rea¬ son or another are unable to be present at tbe Sabbath services, and for these and all others Cantor Hershman is ar¬ ranging a special concert Sunday evening at eight o'clock, also at the Agudath Achim Synagogue, the like of which Co¬ lumbus has never heard before. ,In addition to the synagogical and clas¬ sical compositions Cantor Hershman is to sing at this concert, he will also render folk songs which will include such fa- viirile.-i as "Mikit;i," "A Chazondel of Shabos," "Milchige, Fleisliige and I'areve Yidden," sojigs which he sings with natchlcss grace and humor, and the fu¬ rore which he is certahi to create with the rendition of these and other songs will be the talk of the, town for weeks to come. Young and old are therefore urged not to miss this opjmrtunity of hearing one of the truly great artists oE our time, who with liis glorious voice aUd suiierh singing is certain to make one forget the dei>ression and' all other woes which are in vogue today. As it aj>pears at present, the Columbus Hebrew School should benefit consider¬ ably from this undertaking, it is im¬ portant, however, that every one attend this exceptional treat in order to make this undertaking a financial success. Mr. Hershman will be assisted hy Can¬ tor Freedman's excellent choir, and ac¬ companied by Mrs. A. W. Abraiiuon on the piano Sunday night., Cantor Hersh¬ man arrived in Columbus this morning, and is the guest of Mr. and itrs. A. W. Robins, lUTt S. 18th Street, while in the city. Rtmtmber the dates, place, ^-ud time - Tomorrow evening at ft t/Clork and Sat¬ urday morning at 9, Sabbath services, and, Sunday evening concert at eight o'clock at the Agudath Achim Synagogue, corner Washington and Donaldson Streets.
