The question ia receiving consid¬ eration at all Jewish meetings and the press is devoting to it its complete attention, Still, no remedy is in sight. On the con¬ trary, there have arisen still greater complications because of the question of citizenship. There are many Jewish soldiers who have lived in Great Russia all their lifetime, but they are at the same time citzens of the Ukraine, and they are, therefore, considered in Great Russia as "enemy aliens." In addition, the general crisis is making matters worse. The work on behalf of these unfortunates is, therefore, disorganized and ineffective. Each comfnunity is doing what it can in the matter, but there is no radical and complete solution to the problem. , The most effective work to remedy the situation is being done by the Organization of Jew- with work in ihe camp, conser-the ideals of the American Flag vation, etc., the note'of patriot-and those of the German flag, ism, ran high. showing the, radically different A membership campaign for conceptions regarding the flag tlie near future was announcedih the minds of the American by President El.

The chapel was filled to capacity by a num¬ ber of distinguished almuni arid parents and friends of the grad¬ uates. The fine musical program was rendered by the student choir under the direction of Mr. Alois Bartschmit, organist. Following the regular Sabbath afternoon service which was read by Mr. Albert G. Mihdd of the Senior class, Mr. Alfred M. Cohen, President of the Board of Governors of the College, opened the exercises with a salutatory to the graduates, students and friends of the College. , Mr. Cohen said in part: "It is difficult, if indeed not entirely impossible to conceive what conditions would be in American Jewry had not the He¬ brew Union College been found¬ ed apd maintained. Surely no single factor is ,and perhaps it is not extravagant to say, that all other contributing causes combined are not, equally re¬ sponsible for the present status of the Jew in this country. Were this fact generally recognized, our people, lavish as they are in the bestowal of gifts for the amelioration of infirmities and suffering, would permit this col¬ lege, the most necessary of all Jewish instrumentalities-, to want for nothing. May the time be not far distanet when a keen¬ er appreciation will be felt for this institution, which incul cates, - promotes and dissemi^ nates Jewish learning and Jew ish scholarship." The invocation was delivered by Rabbi William Rosenau (H This was followed by the Bacca¬ laureate Addregs delivered by Rabbi Samuel H, Goldenson, (H. U. C, 1904), of Pittsburgh, Pa.

Gup was followed by the formal declarations by Mr. Alfred M. Cohen, President of the Board of Governors, and Mr. J. Walter Freiberg, President of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. Announcement was made that the Oscar A. Ber- man prize of $50.00 for general excellence in scholarship, during the entire collegiate term has been awarded to Louis A, Misch¬ kind of the graduating class. The benediction was pro¬ nounced by Rabbi Jacob D. Schwartz (H. U. C. 1906) of Cincinnati. After the exercises the grad¬ uates accompanied by Mr. J.

It is a common purpose which brings together peoples of dif¬ ferent nationaltieS, different creeds and different shares of opinion. Whether it is the buy^ ing of liberty bonds and war sav¬ ing stamps, the furthering of the Y.

Something within lis impels usi and urges us to go out from our . narrow limits fo throw ourselves! Stars and .Stripes and the Union heart and soul for a cause of J^^k as the Jewish Battalion We are thinking now in much broader and bigger terms than we ever did before. We have come to reahze now .that we not only live in the world, but that we are also of the world, and if we try to ignore the world and live by ourselves detached from the great life outside, the world will not ignore us. "These are trying times. A whole world afire, a world in up¬ heaval. The'lives and destinies of -nations and governments are in the balance. A centuries old civilization is crumbling before the onrush of a savage invader, yet in spite of all that, these are most inspiring, most interesting and most enthusiastic times.

The Part Played by the Jewish Women in Jewish History In every country, from earl¬ iest times, the Jewish woman has been foremost among the earliest workers for the welfare of humanity. Aside from thou¬ sands of modest, retiring women who have givieh their little mite unnoticed by the world at large, performing what they regarded as their simple duty, the names of the Jewish women who have become known for their benevo¬ lence and the Jewish organiza¬ tions, whose object is the alle¬ viation of distress and the .amel¬ ioration of the social condition of Jewry, are too numerous to mention. In the United States the Council of Jewish Women has been doing a great deal "for the development of social and correctional legislation"; the Jewry beeri brought more close- sisterhoods have been working U, C. 1889) of Baltimore, Md. class have calls to pulpits under consideration.

There is hardly a single field of human activity that has not been en¬ tered by women. They have re¬ mained undaunted by the dan¬ gers of war. The Woriien's Bat¬ talion of Death has revived with greater intensity l^he spirit of the Amazons of old. Never have women had so good an oppor¬ tunity ' of showing what- they could and would do, as at the present crisis of the world's his¬ tory. The demands upon women have been great but the re¬ sponses have been correspond¬ ingly great. The noble responses on the part of women have re ceived due recognition from the manhood of all countries. Rights and privileges that had been sought and fought for, in vain, for centuries, have been attained since the outbreak.of the war of the nations. Fields of activity that hitherto were regarded as for communal betterment and the ardent workers of Hadassah have helped to bring about the consummation of a two-thou- sand-yearrhope and prayer and, with the aid of the American Zionist Medical Unit, the reJ habilitation of Palestine. A New Privilege and a New ~ Responsibility The number of women who participated in the elections for the American Jewish Congress is large enough -to- give expres- • sion to the fact that the Jewish women of the country have be¬ come conscious of their respon¬ sibilities and privileges. Again the Jewish women gave proof to the self-reliance and self-con¬ sciousness which the Jewish women claim. Again they ex¬ ercised the womanly qualities which, throughout the ages, have helped man to shoulder his responsibilities, to bear his bur¬ dens more lightly, and which have served to preserve the (Continued on page 6.) I COLUMBUS HADASSAH CIETY SO- Lawn Fete to Aid Work Palestine On that evening the Jewish community will honor , and bid farewell to the Jewish boys who, are leaving in the draft contingent of June .24th. The committee has planned to make this a community send-off and every Columbus Jewish man and woman is invited to attend. A fine program has been arranged. Will you be there to show the boys you are behind them? Notice to Selected Men All Jewish men who have been selected for the next draft contingent are cordially invited to the reception given in their honor on Tuesday evening, June 18th, at Memorial Hall. Those who have been called and who have not been notified to attend this reception are re¬ quested to communicate with Mr. H. Joseph Hym^n, Superintendent Jewish Educational Alliance. The committee wants every Jewish man iii this call to be present on that occasion. ¦nr. , fh Tuesday, July 2,: has been set as the date on which the Colum¬ bus Chapter of Hadassah will give its second annual lawn party which will be held on the lawn adjoining the Agudath Achim Synagogue, corner Washington avenue and Donaldson street. The proceeds from this party will be used for Hadassah work. The Hadassah which consists of some 50 chapters in as many cities throughout the United States has as its aihi to help the destitute and sick people in Pal¬ estine. In order to do this, they have (established in Palestine a system of district nursing, a number of hospitals, and from time to time medical units have been dispatched there. Each ' chapter endeavors to contribute to the Hadassah medi¬ cal units in every way possible. Recently the Columbus Chapter has sent many garments and other kinds of apparel. The profits derived from this lawn party will be uised for the same purpose, that is, buying material, making garments and accumu¬ lating supplies in general for the next unit to leave for Palestine. In view of . the noble work which the Hadassah is doing and of the dire need of many people in Palestine, it is urged' that everybody who can possibly at¬ tend this party make every ef¬ fort to do 80. r' At present every move points to the success of this party. More than 500 tickets have al-, ready been distributed. It is ex¬ pected that maily times ' that number will be sold before and at the lawn party. Meeting June 20th Further arrangements will be made at the next meeting to be held at the Agudath Achim Synagogue Thursday evening, June 20. Rabbi S. M. Neches has accepted an invitation to address the Hadassah members. There will be a further discussion on the proposed Zionist constitution and other business relating to the Hadassah work will be taken up. ACTIVITIES OF JEWS IN WAR OFFICIALLY RECORDED Washington, — Congressman Julius H, Kahn has inserted in the Congressional Record the speech of Congressman Walter M, Chandler of New Y'ork,' on the subject of "The Jew as a Soldier, Citizen and Patriot," which he had recently delivered before the City and Country Club of Washington. This speech contains a great deal of infprma- tion on the activities of the Jews in this and other wars, in all countries. The Congressman displayed a profound interest in the figures cited by Mr. Chand¬ ler, and considered the speech sufficiently important for distri¬ bution among their respective constituencies. .
