When the gadget is wound up Chamberlain lifts his umbrella and hits Hitler over the head ...

Have you heard that Win.=iton Churc¬ hill has donated his Kent coun¬ try homo to children who have fled London to escape air raids? . , . Most colorful reporting job done from Europe now is that ot W. L. White, who is on his way to Berlin for the New York Post . . . Military experts in.sist that American-made planes out¬ class those of Goering's squads in every respect . . . The Nazis don't nice the statement of Lazor Kaganovich, who is in charge of the Soviets' oil resources that Ru,ssia has no oil for export to Germany . . .

Her internation¬ al intrigues have made her no¬ torious for quite some time, and Xondon society has regarded her as a tool of Adolf Hitler . . . KUHN'S CORNER Circulated among the Nazis in this country for the purpose of whitewashing fuehrer Kuhn is a whispering campaign to the . effect that the ' un-American Nazi chieftain is letting himself bo pilloried on a charge of phil¬ andering in order to conceal the fact that Bund money was used for purposes which cannot be made public . . . But while it may be true that, as Implied, he used some ot the money to pay off Nazi spies, the .fact remains that Kuhn has been a notorious playboy for quite some time . Much care was taken to see to it that not a single non-Aryan had any official function in con¬ nection with Kuhn's trial . . . Even the Jewish court attend¬ ants tactfully withdrew . . . Everything possible was done to crush the claim of lawyer Sabbatino, Kuhn's counsel, that the Jews were railroading Fritz to jail . . . Did you know that the un-American Bund's mem¬ bership application blank in¬ cludes the statement, to which all applicants must swear: "I am free of Jewish or colored blood?" .. .On the fritz is Kuhn's Deutsche Weckruf, Nazi organ in this countiy, which is losing circulation at an "alarming" rate ...

Wise, spoaicing at a mass meeting sponsored by the sixteenth annual convention of the Junior Hadassah, young women's Zionist organization of America, asserted that American .lews who really believed in democracy had no choice but to support the establishment of a Jewish commonwealth in Pales¬ tine. "Time was when It was im¬ agined to be necessary to ex¬ plain that Zionism and Ameri¬ canism were not incompatible or irreconcilable", ho said, "to explain that a Jew could be a loyal American and at the same time a loyal Zionist. "Time has come, however, whether certain Jews, in or out of Baltimore like it or not, when an American .Tew finds it neces¬ sary to explain, if explanation can be given, why he fails to give his loyal support to the Zionist movement. "It is Aanerlcanism, the spirit of American democracy," Dr. Wise continued, "that calls upon the American Jew to give the uttermost ot _his loyalty to cause which rnoans the ro-eslab- lishment ot the democratic ideal through the establishment of .1 Jewish coimnomyeallh in Palestine, •.•- "One itamiot ?Kjvcqt ttati ,,t^sy wiicf have reservations about the values of democracy shall be enthussiastlc supporters of the ideal of a Jewish commonwealth in Palestine.

WASHINGTON (WNS)- Anti-Semitism Is "treason to America", according to Sinclair Lewis, novelist and Nobel Prize winner. "Any organized attempt to spread racial hatred in the United States", declared Lewis in the National Jewi.sh Month¬ ly, "or an attack upon indivi¬ duals ot group.? here on the ground of race or religion is, in the light of the Bill of Rights- treason to America.
