BIRON Organized In, THE AXIS AX Wo'-vo given up trying to prophesy about the fate of Europe, but We think It's highly significant that British ships have secret orders to stand by for troop transport. . . Close ob¬ servers are saying that the Franco victory in Spain may yet TUin the Rome-Berlin axis, each ax-wielder having hopes of utilizing Spain's natural re¬ sources tor himself , . . And it doesn't help matters that Nazi- land is now buying trom Spain most of its olive oil and wine, two articles Benito himself lilre.s to export . . . Maybe Hitler Is sure of what he's doing, but Goering and Goebbels seem to be preparing for a quick get¬ away . . . Between them they've already put 152,000,000 into dia¬ monds in the past halt year, and are looking for further such con¬ solidated investments, which can he tuclced into a vest pocket when one is in a hurry . . . Porto Rico has been chosen as the site for a U. S. air base to -cope with the Nazi threat that is establishing itself in Latin America .. .'You noted, ot course, — -that it was the widow ot a Venezuelan general who caused that row at Biarritz a couple of weeks ago by appearing in a gown featuring the words Rome, .Berlin and Tokyo . .. The Nazis, you should know-—and the Army already knows—have been nurt- ¦ — urlng the military clique ot South America for many years, •and with considerable suece-ss. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS We're still wondering what' the answer is to that question Mayor La Guardia asked the other day ot a Nazi-minded ¦annoyer; "Where do you pure' Aryans get all the money the non-Aryans are always supposed to bo taking from you?" ... May we suggest a tit-for-tat arrange¬ ment whereby American news¬ papers will refuse to give space to publicity about Nazi films, by "vvay of retaliation to the new Nazi ruling that no American films may even be referred to in the German press? ... An ex¬ cellent idea is that of some In¬ terior Department experts, who think some tens of thousands of refugees could find homes In Alaska, where they could per¬ form a great service to Uncle Sam by building up the coun¬ try .. . Which reminds us that Congressmen from urban dis¬ tricts where the population con¬ sists largely of immigrants and children of immigrants are be¬ ing flooded with anti-refugee letters . . . What could bo more strenuous than to be the authors of a musical comedy lilt with a political angle? . . . This ques tion occurs to us as we learn that Sara and Bella Spowack are now engaged in writing a new sketch to bring their Broadway success, "Leave It To Me," up- to-date with the European situa¬ tion . . . HOT STUFF .So the G-Men havo discovered that Fritz Kuhn, New Yoi* Bunditti leader, was an adjutant of Hitler in the 192a putsch Do they also know that he left Germany for the U. S. at that time to save his skin—and to prepare the ground here for Dor Tag when he and his boss ex¬ pect to pin tho .swastika tag on the U. S.? ...

At least 40 cities either have eMablished or are in the process of organizing councils. In 1935, there were only 17 such agencies in existence. Events abroad and "their re- verberatiohs In America" are cited in the "Notes and News" article as among the main rea¬ sons for the current develop¬ ment of community organiza¬ tion and the growth of the Council movement. The pres¬ sure of these conditions, it Is asserted, has "increased tho awareness among Jewish groups ot the necessity for unity of action on issues of concern to all Jews." Pointing out that the com¬ munity council form is still new and experimental, the article states: .I'Many of the councils have little m common except iji nomenclature and in tho general intention to represent and serve their constituents. They vaiy greatly in structure, degree of stability and range of opera¬ tions. Several have well develop¬ ed programs and are engaged in a wide variety of activities.

Tills excliange of pulpits, which began last year, is ono of the notable church experi¬ ences in Columbus. It began out of a growing friendship initiated by the acceptance of the invita¬ tion extended by tho Temple, on the part of the Presbyterian Church, to avail itself of the facilities of the Temple for wor¬ ship while the Broad St. Church edifice was being constructed. During that same period the Presbyterian Assembly in the United States held its annual sessions in our city and for the first time, in'the history of Pres- byterianism, the Moderator of the Church delivered his mes¬ sage from a Jewish pulpit. The event was so unusual that it was reported in the press throughout the country. The Broad St. Church is the leading Presbyterian Church in Ohio and one of the key churches of that denomination in our country. Its minister. Dr. Cotton, ia one ot the most highly regarded members of its clergy, a man of intellectual attainments and fine spiritual insight. The Ilabijl's sermon delivered in Dr. Cotton's pulpit last year created widespread favorable comment. It is intended that this exchange of pulpits will in¬ volve not alone tho ministers, but also an exchange of visits on the part of the congregations themselves at the respective services. In anticipation of Mother's Day, the PI Tau PI Fraternity will attend tho service in a body and will participate in their customary manner. Mr. Robert Glick, representing the Frater¬ nity, will deliver an original prayer.
