Muaings What was that sect in ancient Israel called which vahicd freedom above all things? Wliy do I say sect? I sliovild Kay parly. Wc always think oE those .divisions in Israel as being theological .whereas more often they were social'and economic. But anyway, I am referring to that group to which Elijah, the. prophet, \ Dcloiigcd. r*riiiiarily, they wanted to be free from the mortgage burden and. .so I they lived in tents, and refused to luirdcn themselves with anything that mislit cn- euniber their freedom. Send us another Elijah,' Lord, tu teach us freedom;. for never was he needed more than he is today. . Everywhere l^'ascisni and allied doctrines have raised Iheir hands against freedom. Even those liberals who formerly set so prcat store ' ;¦' it seem to bcgiii to despise the article: I'ait r stand firmly with Elijah in the hehef in the [>riccless jewel of freedom.

Nearby, in Neiv Jersey, the papers say, a ther- [ moiiieter burst. Next to being one of that free sect in this hot weather, it is best to be a woman.

A bit mad per¬ haps, with the madness allied to genivis. Moses, he wrote, did not take the flesh- pots of Egypt with him, "We will not I make that mistake when we go to the I Promised Land," he arfds. A daring " statement. He wanted the Jews to rnake their entrance in Palestine in evening clothes and "stove-pipe" hats. He liked the trappings of luxury and aristocracy. I am not sure that he was entirely wrong. S Luxury and the aristocratic mode of life have been too generally condemned by moralists. There is a good deal to he said for them. I remember a girl who once said to me wisely, "I do not care ftir the rich because of their wealth, but those who have been accustomed wealth have better bree<ling, as a rule." Wcizmann . wants to develop a large peasant class i» Palestine. Herzl thought the peasant" type was dod'mcd to extinc¬ tion, Weizmaiin, by, the way, was one of the first to challenge some of Herzl's views and also opposed Nordau, probably helping to keep the latter in a lower po¬ sition in the Zionist world than he would otherwise have attained. Weil, it is al¬ ways so. Wcizmann himself had to stand aside at the last Congress before those who challenged hini. Perhaps he will regain his post of leadership at the com¬ ing Congress. I do not know. Perhaps after all in the present situation, he may be the best fitted man, The time factor (Continued on page 2) GOVT- APPOINTS HIM AS N. R. A. SPEAKER NEW YORK— Samuel Untermycr, leader of the world boycott movement against Germany and president of the newly created World Jcwi-sh Econumic Federation, returned from Europe on the French liner, Paris, Sunday, to face a highly enthusiastic reception by 15,000 New Vork Jews. Specially chartered iboats met the Paris at Quarantine with .bands blaring and decorated with huge [wstcrs hailing Mr. Untermyer as "our leader," and prais¬ ing him for his work at the recent world boycott conference held In Amsterdam at which he presided. At the pier 5,000 enthusiastic Jews crowded onto the dock while 10,000 more waited.patiently in the street for a glimpse of the man whom they consid¬ ered the hero of the fight against the Na?.is. Delegations of Jewish Wur Vet¬ erans in uniform, posts of the American Legion, veterans of Allenby's campaign Palestine, Zionist and Hadassah or¬ ganizations as well as many other groups were on the pier and cheered Ktr. Un¬ termyer. Addresses Nation Over Radio Flanked by motorcycle police and heartily cheered by the crowds who had waited for hours to greet him, Mr. Un¬ termyer was rushed uptown after a. short reception at the pier; to deliver an dress- over Station WABC and a natioiial hookup. "I have seen and talked with many of the terror-stricken refugees who have had the g'ood fortune to escape from Ger¬ many, though forced to leave their prop¬ erty behind them," said Mr. Untermycr, "and I want to say to you that nothing that lias scepedi through to you over the rigid„ censorship., and lying, .propaganda that are at work to conceal and misrep¬ resent the situation of the Jews in Ger¬ many begins to tell a fraction of the frightfuL story of fieiidish torture, cru¬ elty and persecution that are being in¬ flicted day by day upon these niCn> women and children, or the terrors of worse than death in which they arc living; Fiendish Boycott "The Hitler regime originated and are fiendishly prosecuting a boycott to extcr^ ininate the Jews by placarding Jewish shops, warning Germans against dealhig with them, by imprisoning Jewish, shop¬ keepers and parading them through the streets by the hundreds under guard of Nazi troops for the sole crime of being Jews, by ejecting them from the learned professions tn which many of them had attained eminence, by excluding their children from the schools, their men from the labor unions, closing against them every avenue of livelihood, locking them in the vile concentration camps, starving and torturing them, murdering and beat¬ ing them without cause, all solely because they or their remote ancestors were Jews and all with the avowed object of exter¬ minating theni. "As against this the foulest boycott in the annals of time, we are appealing to all mankind to enforce a counter-'boycott. That appeal is meeting with the convic¬ tion that idealism and justice are still alive." Mr. Untermyer then appealed for sup¬ port from those Jewish organizations who have so far been lukewarm or opposed to the boycott, saying: "With this explanation of our aims, I appeal to the American Jewish Commit¬ tee, whose public spirit and good inten¬ tions 1 do not for a moment question, but the wisdom of whose judgment I chal¬ lenge, no longer to hold aloof but to rid themselves of their timid and ill-consid¬ ered prejudices and join in actively press¬ ing this boycott as our only weapon ex¬ cept the appeal to the League, which 1 shall discuss at n- later time.

The discussion will include the problems: How to interest the American Jewish Youth in the Zionist Movement; the for¬ mation of a program for tlic Zionists of America; and its contacts with the Jew¬ ish National Home; the idcalogy.of the organization wliich is to be the center in Zionism and mediator between Right and Left parties.

T. A.) -^In sorrow and desperation, the Jews of this old city on whom the brunt of the Nazis' ceaseless anti-Jewish agitation has fallen most heavily, arc deserting their homes and businesses en masse and Nu¬ remberg will soon be a city without Jews. Leaving behind all their chattels and t^oods. the Jewish population, quickened by tlie ever-growing menace to their well- being resulting from the incessant incite¬ ment to anti-Jcwi-sli violence in the local press, particularly, in Der Sliienncr, the newspaper edited , by Julius ^^reicher, Nazi*, chieftain, is frantically making cussing problems. Instead df one every effort to fiiifl refuge in other cities. Prof. Theodore N. Beckman of Ohio State University, was recently appointed olBcial speaker for the National Recovery A'dministration. Tlie appointment was made by Mr, Louis J. Alber, chief of the speakers division of the N. .R. A. Prof. Beckman is one of three men selected from Columbus as part of the national list of 20O "big guns" to lay. down a barrage of oratory in behalf of the President's Emergency Re-employ¬ ment campaign which is now under way.

Jersey City Reform Temple Adopts Conservative RitudI Many arc fleeing with but a small amount of clothing, turning over the keys of tlieir homes and shops to shipping of¬ fices with the hope that these will obey ihstrnctions and pack and ship their fur¬ niture and possessions after them. Der Stuermer, which approaches Dr. Joae|»h Goebbels' Der Angriff In the.pitch and intensity of its anti-Jewish violence, rejoices at this iiiass eniigratipn of Jews from the city. Under a headline, "The Jews Are Leaving Us," the newspaper today tells its readers how "every day another Jew house in Nuremberg is evac¬ uated," and, also, how busy, the transfer agencies are in transporting the posses¬ sions of Nuremberg Jews to Palestine apd other countries. The Nuremberg city council, as If to givt impetus to the Jewish migration, is continuing .to issue stricter orders making the life of a Jew in this city well-nigh hitolerable. An order made public today prohibits' Jews' fropi enterilig the mu¬ nicipal stadium. Due mainly to the activities of Strel- clier, who was the organizer of the one- day boycott against the Jews in April and- who is responsible for the recent arrest and parade through the city of 300 of the city's, leading Jewish citizens, the Jews of Nuremberg have had to suffer a se¬ ries of 'attacks ancji; insults surpassing in ferocity those borne by most of the Jews of the Reich. Reports that the storm troopers were plundering Jevvish homes In Nuremberg and had clashed with police and Reichs- wehr guards who had sovight to main¬ tain a semblance of order were scmi-of- ¦ ficially denied Wednesday. Nuremberg is to he the seat of this year's National LOAN SOCIETY WILL MEET TUESDAY EVENING, AUG. 15 The Ladies Free Loan Society will hold their regular meeting on Tuesday evening, August 15th, at 8 p. m. in the social hall of the Agudath Achim Con¬ gregation."

Frank Leads the Council Race Ticket Last Tuesday over ten thousand voters expressed their appreciation to one of Columbus' youngest Jewish political lead¬ ers, ^Melville D, Frank, whose meritorious work in city council for the past four years has been highly commended by the local citizenry. In last year's campaign for Mayor these same voters felt that Melville did not possess sufficient experi ence as Mayor, and although a half dozen candidiites sought this ofiice, he neverthe¬ less made a good showing in the contest. The Ohio Jewish Chhonicle, as well as his many well wishers in the local Jewish community, wish to congratulate Mr. Frank on his splendid showing in the primaries and wish him luck in the No¬ vember election.
