The same sources forecast that the next Island to be taken over by Uncle Sam as a base, and as a preventative measure against Hitler occupation, is the island of Martinique, In the "West Indies . . . That anti-Petain antl anti- Darlan sentiment in the French navy has risen to such a point that one of these days Ihe fleet will steam away and join the British naval forces . . . That Hitler is going to unloose the most aggressive peace offensive yet launched, promising to call off the war with Brluin If he'll be permitted to deal with the Soviets as he pleases . . . and that whep this falls he'll break oft diplomatic relations with the U S and intensify the submar Ine warfare against all shipping, including America's . itttbsian niay not beat tlie Nazis, the Reds will surely worry the Brownshlrts to death Jt seems that Goebbel's hair Is growing white with the strain of trying to deny the bombard¬ ment of rumors let loose all over Europe by the expert Red propagandists concerning inter¬ nal strife among the Nazi lead¬ ers ...

Pointing lo the tremendously increased needs for relief, re- habiUlatlon and emigration which extende<l Nazi dom¬ ination of Europe made necessary among Jews from Jan¬ uary through June, the J. D.

"The full completion of the job will depend on a di¬ rect challenge to the heads of vjirious groups who thus far hjivc rendered such valiant ser¬ vice Public opinion expects these men lo go forward until every one of the 500 prospective pledges yet untouched are sign¬ ed, sealed and delivered," con¬ cluded Mr. Schiff.

The situation makes it encum¬ bent upon every member in the community lo gel behind the workers and cooperate to the point of sacrifice, a condition of true Jewish giving which has already been demonstrated by the donors so far.
