By the Way David Schwartz With ApoloRiea to Mr. Plato jndaeiis: Ah, Socrates, I sec you are .ip very early Una morning. The cock has barely ciitled his crowing and yuii ;ire already in your garden. .Socrates: Yes, yes, Judaeus, I could ^ not sleep. ;md all because I went to the fVicwsreel last night. , Judacns: Yon, Socrates, at the ncws- ^cl. . I should not think.that a philoso- jihcr would permit himself such an evil indulgence as the ncwsreel. Socrates: Have I not repeatedly said that the Kabbahsts are right, Judaeus? fhiit there is no such thing as evil, only grcitter and lesser good? And between ihe choice of several other things, it niiiy very well have been that the news- reel was tile greater good. Judaeus: So yon havc.i Socrates, and I am minded that you are right, but what could have been shown at the "'¦ ncwsreel to have thus caused your awake- ncss: Perhaps you saw the terrible pictures uf an aeroplane crashing, or the devastation of an earthcjiiake or the luirnirs of war? Socrates: N'o, Judaeus, it was none of those things. I saw a picture of n man shattering wine glasses by the sound of bells. _ ¦ .." Judaeus; \Vell, Socrates, is that such a new thing? indeed, the Jews have a record of the walls, of the whole town of Jericho falling down merely by the trumpeting. Socrates: Yes, Judaeus, you are quite right, it has loiig been known that sound i.s a mighty force. In a similar way, for instance, that great/' tenor, -Caruso,- demo'n^tratctl! it by breaking glasses wilti his song. But it seems to many, Judaeus, that while this fact has bceu known,, it is generally only deiiia gugues who take advantage of it, and capitali;;e it, so to speak, to their pur poses. .'Vs a philosopher, I am interested in seeing this great power, which is go¬ ing lo w-istc as much as the power of the tides or the power that resitles ii- tlie wind or in the humble atom tised fur I)eiiellceiif ends. And it seems to me,'Juiiiieiis, that it should be the mair reliance of the Jews now in their ef¬ forts to recover Palestine. Jud:it;us : Do you mean to imply, Soc¬ rates, lliat ypu are. a Revisionist, that ytiti favor Jabotinsky's ivihl gesticulating and arrogant strutting and attacks ou England and all that? Socniios; Vcs, Judaeus, in answer to the first part of your queryi I will say, that I ;ini a Revisionist, but also I am a I.;iborive, believing in the importance of labor's welfare, and deeming the spiriiu:i! also important, P am a Mizra- cliist, and of course, I am a General /Zionist. They are not contradictory 'lail - riithcr complementFiry things, and one docs not preclnde the other, though many 'vould seem to give the contrary impres¬ sion. Uut it seems to me that now is the time to make a supreme effort to catch the world's attention, for have yon noticed, Judaeus, the amount of space the New York daily papers have been giving the Congress? It means that the Jewish tpiestion is now on the mind of the world as perhaps never before. It has become a cmestion akin to the Polish corridor, . or the Balkan problem ir, rather, Jttdaens, I should ^ay, that events ]i;ive so worked as to make it possible tliiit it can be presented in- such a gui.se, and unless it is elevated to that cate¬ gory—to the category of Statesmanship ratlier than philanthropy what can we hoi>c of Zionism? , Judaeus: Well, Socrates, this man, ijahutiiisky, attacks the Hnglish govern- Wnt. Surely, as a philosopher, you do jiiot approve of that. Socrates: Yes, Judaeus, I do approve of it. Not that I think that England is ijil] malicious, ot' any worse than the !i (Continued on page 2) Untermyer Urges B'nai B'rith Join Boycott In Address At Youngstown INFANTS' HOME OF OHIO Y()IJN-(;STO\VN, O.-. Characteriz¬ ing tlie present rulers uf Germany as "fiends in human form who are loading ;i once great nation back into the Dark Ages." Siinmel Untermycr of New Y'ork, ;iddrcssing tlie aninuil rennioii of tri- statc lodges of the li'nai B'rith. Jewish fraternal organization, in a speech broad¬ cast over a Colunihiii network, called for an unyielding war against Hitlerism by means of a complete boycott of Ger¬ many until it overthrows the Nazi re¬ gime. , . The noted attorney criticized the League of Nations for its "Kip Van Winkle" attitude in not having sent a commission to investigate conditions in Germany. , " Negotiations-^ reported to the Iiighteenth World Congress at Prague, Czechoslo vakia, providing for tlie removal of Ger¬ man Jews from the Keicli and tlie ex Iiort of part of their capita! 'in the form of German goods, were roundly criti¬ cized by Mr. Untermyer as well as the failure of the congress.to adopt the boy¬ cott. "The Zionist Organization bad no business to enter upon any such negotia- tions," he declared. 'Tf they accede to iny such terms, or to any terms, other than to offer to take care x>l the very limited number of German Jews whom they can locate in Palestine or care for, they wilt rightly destroy their organiza¬ tion in this country." . , Delegates Warned Against Boycott Referring to the Congress's failure to adopt the boycott, Mr. Untermyer as¬ cribed this to a reason "unworthy, though doubtless well-intentioned." The dele¬ gates, he said, "had been warned that if they voted' for a boycott, the absurd abortive negotiations above referred to, now under way, to permit German Jews to be taken out of Germany, would be terminated. I wish they were. The sooner the better. Whilst I am unwilling to oppose them or any other movement that, will piit our helpless brethren out of their present misery, I am wondering whether the well-iiitentioned gentlemen who arc championing this program real¬ ize its peril. : » "First," he declared, "it involves an abject surrender of the principle for wliich we' are fightiny: and shall continue to fight to the hitter end atwl nntil Hit¬ lerism and the hatred, bigotry and saV' agery for which it ^stands are obliterated from the face of the earth. "Second, it is playing into the hands of tlic; enemy and destroying the only opportunity that will ever come to us to liberate their victims by bringing about the certain economic downfall of the Hit¬ ler regime through the boycott, which 1 feel sure can be accomplished within six or twelve months, if vigorously prosecuted, and "Third. Lastly and most important, let us consider what is going to be the effect upon anti-Semitism, anti-Catholi¬ cism, and the many other forms of racial and religious bigotry and fanaticism throughout the world of such a con teniptiblc surrender to the most evil forces ever aroused in the most violent form in which a recognized Governmenl has even dared assert itself within a thousand years. "It would be a disaster almost equal in its, proportions to the one we are now combatting," he declared. "It is simply inconceivable that we sliould ever become parties to such an unholy com pact." "Grave Mistake" Appealing to the iTnai [BVith to adopt the hoyciitt, Mr. Untermyer declared that "your representatives in the East, doubtless with the best nf intentions, made a grave mistake in aligning yon with the American Jewish Conimittce in opposing the promotion of the boycott, which is the only wenpoii available to the Jew.s and non-Jews of the world againsi (Continued on page '-) The Board and kiddies of the Jewisli Infants' Home of Ohio arc deeply >;rate- fnl to the following donors; Counsellors aud girls from Camp Winona in Maine; *I5 was presented hy Miss Nan Basch nf Toledo, Ohio; Mr. and Mrs. Julius C.

However, the incredible spectacle. nf a foremost nation in the heart of Europe reverting to practices that put even the Middle'Ages to shame, has so shocked tliesc men that they felt it in- ' cumbeiit upon them to enlist in this struggle against the Nazis, a struggle on the outcome of which depends the very survival of our people.

Tuttle, former fed- tical men of affairs, they immediately perceived that the only peaceful and effective weapoti at the command of the Jewish people in conveying to the pres¬ ent regime of Germany, ahd more par¬ ticularly to tlie German masses who are kept in ignorance of the universal detes-, tation and abhorrence their medieval practices have aroused among civilized [KOples, that the Hitler brand of anti- semitism leads Germany . not only tn moral isolation, but also to economic catastrophe. ¦ Among those who will attend the con¬ ference and whose names are thus far released, for publication are: Rabbi Abba ITillel Silver of Cleveland; J.
