GENEVA (WNS)—Threats of reprisals against Jews in Ger¬ many nnri olher Nazi-controlled countries were made by high ranking Nazi officials following passage In the United States of Ihe lea.se-lend bill, It was learn¬ ed here. When President Roo.sevell signed the bill which will make the Uniled States the arsenal of the democracies he provoked a torrent of abuse In Beriin and Rome aimed at American Jews anri the White House. The Nazi-controlleri press accused the Preslrient and American Jews of "whipping" the bill through Congress. Linking the names of Bernard Daruch, Prof. Felix Frankfurter anri Benjamin V. Cohen with passage of the bill, Nazi officials chargeri that the bill was passed to safeguard the Interests of "international .lewry". The Nazis declared that the Jews were compelling the American people lo win back for them the positions and Influence which they had in pre-Hltler Europe. liinling at reprisals against Jews in Nazi lands, the Boersen Zeitung .stated that this "Jew. i.sh action" today "burdens not only Jewish immigration but also that portion of Jewry which is StiU in Kurope with heavy respoiisJbUl»i5gThevJeW'^9Pk;; ¦i&Hix''-^A-^'mi^t^ieh^*^ai^^ getting around and ttnaermln- ing American neutrality."

The final battle begins." In Italy, the Regime Fasclsta referred to President Roosevelt as "the Emperor of the Jews" and repeated the charge that the President is motivated primar¬ ily hy Ihe wishes and Interests of world Jewry. The entire llaluin press published the usual antl-Jewlsh epithets. ] Sidney Kusworm To Be Main Speaker At A, Z. A.
