BIBON House Takes Steps To Limit Activity Of Un-American Groups OVERSEAS PlyASHES Now that Cardinal. Pacelli, former Papal Secretary of State, » has been elected as the next Pontiff—we feel .it timely to re¬ mind you that months before the last Pope died Hitler announced that he definitely does not want Pacelli to he the next Pope 'The medieval Jewish physician Nostradamus, by the way, in his prophesy declared that the Pope ^or whose position Pacelli has "been chosen will be so marvelous a leaider that he will be known as the "Angelic Shepherd"! . . .

The follow¬ ing bit of Galgenhumor is waft cd over the Atlantic: It was right after that London session which ended abruptly when the Zionists walked out ot the room where they had been conferring -ivith the British ... A European Zionist was worried at the af¬ front to Britain . . . "After all," he pointed out, "England is a powerful nation—the sun never sets on the British flag" ... "That," came back an American delegate, "is because the Lord \voul<in't trust the English in the dark." THIS AND THAT Paging Samuel Untermyer: Some lawyers claim that the law compelling importers to mark merchandise with the name of the country of origin and forbidding the removal of that legend is unconstitutional . . . The reason why that Pathe newsreel shot of the German- American Bund meeting at Madison Square Garden -was withdrawn from circulation was not protest by anti-Nazis .. . Some of the Bund fuehrers didn't like to have the scene bhowing storm troopers beating up an interrupter exposed to the public gaze . . .

"The German-American Bund, the Silver Shirts and every Nazi and Fascist organization are be¬ ing Investigated by a special group of trained men. During the first six months of its in¬ vestigation the committee look¬ ed into the activities of the German-American Bund and pthei* organizations charged with spreading racial and re¬ ligious hatred." German-American Nazis and other political groups would be forbidden to wear .uniforms if Congress approves a bill intro- diiced by Hepresentative Joseph A. Gavagan of New York. Ex¬ plaining the purpose of the measure, Gavagan said that the performance of the Nazis at recent lieeting in New York was a "disgrace" to the United States.

LONDON (WNS)—British public opinion is over- ivlielraingly in favor of the establishment of a Jewish Na-^ tional Home in Palestine it was revealed when the News Chronicle, London daily, published the result of a survey by the British Institute of Public Opinion, founded in 1936 by George Horace Gallup, whose polls on tirnely subjects in America have thus far always been fou'rid amazingly accurate. ; Asked whether they believed it desirable for Great Britain to continue its policy of settling Jews in Palestine, sixty per cent.pf the Britishers who answered did so in the affirmative- Only fourteen per cent gave a negative reply; the remaining twenty-six per cent declared that they had formed no definite opinion.

Mr. Wise has chosen tor.hts subject "Shall. The Jew D16-' appear" and will be open to all B'nai B'rith member.";, their wives and friends in Coliimbus and surrounding towns. Accord¬ ing to Frank V. Bayer, Presi¬ dent, a capacity turnout is an¬ ticipated for this, the .second of a series of cultural programs planned by the lodge during the year. The meeting will begin promptly at 8: o'clock and the lecture at 8:15 in the auditorium of the East Broad St. Temple. Son of Famous Rabbl James Waterman Wise is one of thousands of young Jews who has felt the stress and uncer¬ tainty of the present era and instead of. clinging to the age- old tradition that has bound the Jews for centuries, has recogniz¬ ed the need for a more univer¬ sal outlook unlimited by the bonds of religion and creed. His case is particularly outstanding because he is the son of a very famous father, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise. Noted Author He has written articles for magazines .and newspapers. His contributions to the more liberal magazines have been welcomed and respected by all readers. His articles have appeared in "Cen¬ tury," "Forum," "New Pales¬ tine," "The Nation," "The New Masses," "The Christian Cew tury," and many others. He -was editor of- "Opinion,' the maga¬ zine which he founded, from 1931-1933, and associate editor of "The People's Press." Not only in his hooks and articles, but on his numerous lecture appearances does Mr. Wise squarely and fearlessly present his views. He Is a re- mai'kable speakeir and armed with all the requisites necessary to hold and captivate an audi¬ ence, the impression he leaves Is always a vivid one. The press describes him as "... a young man with a vision, having a thorough knowledge of history and a most pleasing and entei-- talnlng manner of conveying lU.s knowledge." Citizenship Classes To Be Held .During Day At livingston School For the benefit of those peo¬ ple who cannot attend the even¬ ing classes in Americanization and Citlzonship taught every evening at the Schonthal Cen¬ ter, Mrs. William Schift, chair¬ man ot this project for the Council ot Jewish Women, takes pleasure in announcing that ad¬ ditional classes will be held dur¬ ing the day at tho Livingston Ave. School. Classes will be formulated on Monday morning, March 13, and Miss-Janet Wasserstrom, head teacher at tho Schonthal Center, will bo pre.sent that morning to register all those desiring to at¬ tend the day classes there. The .same subjects will be offered for the day classes as are being taught in the evening at Schonthal Center. Miss Wasserstrom Is ably as¬ sisted by Miss Lillian Cohen and Dr. A. S. Kohn, the latter con¬ ducting special classes in phonetics. TUNE IN TONIGHT Tonight (Saturday) at 7 o'clock Rabbi Abba Hillei Silver, of Cleveland, will be heard on the "Message of Israel" radio broad¬ cast through the facilities of the National Broadcasting Co. Babbi Sliver win speak oh "The Morals of Aid to Refugees." WCOL sta¬ tion of Columbus will cariy the progiam. In an editorial the News Chronicle points out tiiat British pubUc opinion is markedly pro- Jewish in the present dispute over Palestine, and adds that the abandonment' of the Balfour Declaration \vpuld produce un¬ fortunate results. Such abandon- merit, the paper declares, "v/ould have a disastrous effect on the prestige ot the Colonial Empire, would bring about alienation of world Jewry and would produce profoundly disturbing results in America." The editorial writer goes on to suggest that if the conferences actually end in a deadlock it might be advisable for the British Government to fall back on the partition scheme. This' is tho second time this week that a- reversion to partition has been publicly .suggested. On March 1st Colonel Sir Walter Smiles had asked in the House of Commons whether the Gov¬ ernment proposed the establish¬ ment of an independent .Jewish State comprising the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv and an area of fifty miles surrounding it. Colonial Secretaiy Malcolm Mac¬ Donald had stated at. that time that this was not the case. "The Manchester Guardian in its leading article of the March Oth issue warned the British Government not to betray tho Jewish people, pointing out that , ah independent State in Pales¬ tine under present condltion,s means a betrayal of the Jewish Honie policy, which is an inter¬ national obligation. Colonial Secretary Malcolm Mac Donald was again told that there was no possibility whatso¬ ever that the Jewish population of Palestine would ever submit Listeners are urged to send ui jraicoii.io w^uim cvc. du,^,,,.,. in their comments on this broad-1 to the Imposition ot a minority cast to WCOL radio station. status.

President Roosevelt issued a challenge to the forces of totali¬ tarian states that the United States will not approvingly wit¬ ness the return to the world of tyrannical autocracy and re¬ ligious persecution. Said the President: "Today, with many other democracies, the United States ¦ivill give no encourage¬ ment to the belief that our pro¬ cesses are outworn, or that ,we will approvingly watch the ' re¬ turn of forms of government which tor two thousand years have proved their tyranny and tribute to the spirit of America the President continued: "Our fathers rightly believed that this government which they set up would seek as a whole to act as a whole for the good govern¬ ing of the nation," With President Roosevelt, Chief Justice Hughes and other ranking dignitaries, before a Joint session ot Congress, em-, phasized the role of democracy In the present world contrasted with the current denial of lib¬ erty in the dictatorships.
