"*I am." he asserted, "talking to Jews, hut I do not talk to you as Jews, merely as Americans or seekers after freedom who happen to be Jews, There aro others of us who happen to be Protestants or Catholics, but the significance of this fight in which we are engjiged Is as significant as the founding of Ihe country itself," Other speakers included Dr. David de Sola Pool, Chairman of the Jewish Welfare Board's Anny and Navy Committee on ieUglPUS^:AGMYit] FIND 8UCCK8BFUL GRAY HAIR CURE BOSTON, (JPS)—That the na- ti-gray-hair vitamin, known as para-amino-benzoic acid, has been 'successful in restoring the original color of the hair to two- thirds of the cases on whom the vitamin was tried was reported here by Dr, S.
