BIRON Jeivry^s Greatest Campaign Of Aidi and Saerifiee To Begin Tliursday INSIDE STUFF One of the reasons why the late Kaiser Wilheim refused to the very last to return lo Ger¬ many was his fear that if Hit ler should ever want to get rid of him the Nazi chieftain would classify him as a non-Aryan . . . This not oniy because Queen Vic¬ toria of England, his grand¬ mother, proudly claimed de¬ scent from the Biblical King Da¬ vid, but also because her con¬ sort. Prince Albert, was reput¬ ed to be the son of a .lew, and not of his nominal father, the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha . . . Somehow we're not reassured by that British threat that if Hitler comes Into Iraq the Eng¬ lish will destroy the Mosul- Haifa oil pipeline and that the necessary repairs would take two years . . . We hope that the Germans and their allies In Iraq won't be too convinced of the ease which such damage can be done and of the difficulty that repairs will involve ... If you "Want the Idw-down on France's Laval watch out for the new book soon to be published on that gent by Henri Torres, the famed French lawyer who Is now a refugee In this country . . . Via the trans-Atlantic grape¬ vine we hear that while the Nazi treatment of Jews in occu¬ pied France is nothing to write home about, it is better than the T treatment TefugeeSJews-itet .In many sections of iitiioccupied France . . . And, returning to the ex-Kaiser, we wonder wheth¬ er Wllhelm's non-Aryanlsm, as explained above, may not event ually affect the standing of George Sylvester Viereck, Nazi propaganda chief in America, among his Naztl brethren . . . Viereck, you surely remember, has often boasted that It was the Kaiser who was really his fath Women's Division Organizes For Intensive Drive The Women's Division is go¬ ing places thi.<4 year in raising United .lewish Campaign Funds if present indications point tor Junior Group Being Mobilized For Its Part In Campaign In line with the national trend toward greater participation of youlh in .lewish communal af¬ fairs, some UK) Columbusites are Ohio Valley Zionist Region In Annual Convention June 14-15 YOU SHOULD KNOW Dorothy Thompson's call to action for the preservation of democracy Is meeting with an amazing response, as Is her pro¬ posal to form a Ring ot Free¬ dom . . . The first of a series of meetings to be sponsored by Miss Thompson's group through¬ out the nation will take place in New York next week . . .

A career as an Alsatian department store proprietor was indicated for Wyler until, when he was a youth in his late teens, a distant relative, one Carl La- emmle, persuaded him to come to America and enter the movie industry . . . Rudolf Hess has dropped out of the news, but he still turns up occasionally in a new quip . . . Thus one Broad¬ wayite has suggested that what Hess went to Scotland for was not to save humanity, as his farewell note to the Nazis stat¬ ed, but to see what humanity looks like . . .

Kobacker rectly, ,„: Under ,the- able-lead^j'- siiii* ¦ of MrSi''Alfred J, 'Kbback- er, the Division has organized as though it were one unit. The women have volunteered to see the Campaign through to the end and are making plans for an intensive canvass. The goal set for the Division is a high one, but the women are prepared to show their huS' bands a thing or two when it comes to raising money for wor¬ thy causes. Mrs. Kobacker heading the Division as chairman, needs no Introduction to Cohimbus Jew ry. As leader ot the Women's Division of the United Jewish Fund last year, she demonstrat- Leon S. Friedman being- enlisted in the junior di¬ vision of; the .1941 United Jew¬ ish FiiHd idampaign. .'Sppnsbr- ed by the Columbus' Jewish Youth Council of which group Asher Moser is president, the members of the campaign's junior division will solicit con¬ tributions tor the annual com¬ munity-wide fund-raising pro¬ ject trom the Jewish youth of the city. It is being announced this week that Leon S. Friedman will again head the Junior di¬ vision as chairman for this year's campaign. He will be assisted by Dorothy Krakoff and Asher Moser as vice chair¬ men. .It will be remembered that under Mr. Friedman's lead ed her abilities as an executive, prship last year a most success as an understanding person and f^i f^nji raising effort was ac as a capable organizer. Un der her direction, that group look on new stature as a real social service organization. Her hard and diligent work made everyone realize her tine quali¬ ties. Mrs. Kobacker is show¬ ing her metal once again and her untiring energies in organ¬ izing the work for the Women's Division, once more point to another triumph in her achieve¬ ments for the 1941 fund raising effort. In a statement this week Mrs. Kobacker stated that the largest possible number of women is being mobilized tor solicitation work in connection with the 1041 United Jewish Fund Campaign. •¦We expect that some 200 women again will consecrate themselves to the holy task ot saving lives. Jewish women realize that millions ot Jews de¬ pend upon our help for their daily bread. Jewish women real complished On Monday, June 23, the Junior Division will hold a city- wld ¦ rally for all the Jewish youth of Columbus at the East Broad St. Temple. Plans are being made for a number ot prominent members of the com¬ munity to speak at that meet¬ ing so as to enlighten the group on the present emergency and of their responsibilities in the forthcoming campaign The first important Junior Division solicitors' meeting is to be held at Schonthal Center next Wednesday evening, June 18th, at 7:30 P. M. Robert W Schlff, Jack Rainer and David Goldsmith will be heard at that time. All solicitors of last year's campaign, in addition to any interested new workers, are urged to attend. The 1940 campaign marked the second opportunity for par- ize that a majority ot the suffer- jicipation by the Jr. Division in ers from hunger, Paln, Pestil- ^,f^^ ^f „^^ ,„„. ence, are women and children, < ot our own kin. With energy and grim determination, our women will carry through the job of reaching all their prospects and bring the message ot rescuing human lives", Mrs Kobacker (ConUnued on Page 4) munlty. Last year over 750 young men and women contrib¬ uted cheerfully and generously to the Junior Division, an un¬ usual record which, it la hoped, may be surpassed this year. Columbus Jewry's greatest campaign of all-out aid and sacrifice will be launched with a dinner meeting at tho Winding Hollow Country Club, Thursday evening, June I!), in behalf of Ihc Uniled .lewish Fund. To meet the unprecedented needs of the most critical hour in world history, the meeting will set off a record drive for a sum which must exceed last year's effort by a considerable margin. Over i>0 agencies are the benefic¬ iaries of this fund. 'I'liosc altPTidlng the dinner mcoiing will receive a first hand account of the foreign situation. Among those who .-ire to l>o hoarrl will be E. J.

These agencies last year helped 30,000 Jews escape from Europe, fed a million Jews in Poland, France, Germany, Hungary, and other c-ountrles of Europe to keep them from starvliig, help¬ ed tho r),50,000 Jews of Palestine maintain the Briitish lifeline there, and aided the 42,000 refu¬ gees who entered the United Stales in 1940. Among olher important agen¬ cies which depend upon the cami)algn are the organizations which are combatting anti-Sem¬ itism in the United States, na¬ tional Jewish hospitals, orphan homes, and the organizations serving Jewish youth such-as the Hillel Foundations, in lead¬ ing universities throughout the country.
