S. Norman Hapgood Writes Con¬ cluding Article on ' Henry Ford's Jew-Mania SAYS RUSS AND GERMAN REACTION IS SPREADING iMidiiiR the scries of articles in Hearst's fiUcriiatioiial Magazine on "Henry Ford's Jcw-niania," Norman HapKood announces in the November issnc of the maRa/ine that the fight against treating the Jewish question with ignorant mania will be continued. A series of articles are to appear before long, dealing with the problem of the Jews'in American colleges. At the same time, Mr. Hapgood announces that the .tale of Ford's mania will also be sup¬ plemented by an article on the manu¬ facturer's creative side. From the final article in the series by 'Mr. Hapgood, we quote the following: "The importance of the anti-Jew cru¬ sade, that we have now finished ex¬ posing, lies not in the weight of any., tiling brought forward by Mr. Ford. The stuff published in the Dearborn In¬ dependent, and also the other material turned up by the Ford detectives, has been, as our readers now know, unmiti- ' gated rubbish. .'What gave the Ford vagary its unfortunate significance was the following set of facts: Set of Facts "1. That the reactionary trick of get¬ ting after the Jews, in order, to stir up a dust, exists not only in Russia and Germany, but seems to be spreading to this country. "2. That the richest man in the world, an idealist, was made a victim and led into this deplorable game of the - international reactionaries. ¦ "3. That his folly coincided with a Russian anti-Jew campaign in this coun¬ try, with the Ku Klux outrages and with a new outbreak of anti-Semitism in the colleges. ... , ,e, . "The actual circulation attained by the ,;ji4i*^j^Pord. weekly,.evenJliotighiit attempted "" ' ' to. ride on the anti-Semitic movement, has been slight. Of what circulation there is, a large part is forced. Docu¬ ments reproduced by us illustrate the fact that Ford dealers continually re¬ ceive circulars urging them to obtain subscriptions to the' Dearborn Inde¬ pendent, The pressure is so strong that subscription blanks and applications for bonds for solicitors have been received by tbe dealers along vVith their cotninis- sion agreements. ' "Here is one sample of the letters sent to dealers: •"May 24, 1922. ' "'To All Ford Dealers: "'From time'to-time we have re¬ quested the Ford dealers to get behind the sales of subscriptions for the Dear¬ born Indi^pendent. "'During the month of March we'ob- tained 1,162 subscriptions, which was a very good showing, and we led the country that month. During the month of April we obtained 565, which was less than half as many as we had in March, and up until today we have only 105 subscriptions for May, so you see we will make a very poor showing for this tnonth unless we get busy. The Dear¬ born Independent is a Fordi product and is worthy I of our support. We have eight days of May left, so for the bal¬ ance of the month let every one think, I talk and sell subscriptions for the Dear¬ born Independent. " 'Set the target at one Subscription each day for the rest of May.' "Tbe responses received* by us, as -month by month we patiently gave the facts about the Ford anti-Jew campaign, have been most satisfactory. These re¬ sponses leave in our mind no doubt that our purpose is being accomplished; that the silliness of the charges has been driven in, "Not that the task is ended. It is in¬ deed true that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Weeds will grow if the garden is not watched. Hatred, preju¬ dice, littlenesses of many kinds, diseases of the social-system,'will take root un¬ less there is a strong and alert public sentiment to stamp out the evil begin¬ nings. This publication means to do its part. The best cure for any error is a full exposure of the facts. 'Light,' as Emerson says, 'is the best policeman.'" UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AND THE COLUMBUS JEWISH COMMUNITY Tho OHIO JEWISH CHRON¬ ICLE, since its establishment in Columbus has beqn truly repre¬ sentative of eyery branch in the community. Every worthy ob¬ ject, every laudable endeavor has received our support. On questions of n.itional, state or local importance -which arose from time to time, and which had a real interest for the Jewish community, we did hot hesitate to express our views frankly and openly. How¬ ever, we have always and will always welcome an expression of views on all sides of every important subject. Our columns will be an open Forum. The cordial reception which we met from the student body of the O. S. U. last week has been most glratifying.

NEW YORK—^It has been oiicnly cliarged by Jonah J. Goldstein, copn.sel for Rosenbl'iith, as'well as by many others, including J. A. Scldcn, prosecuting Attorney of Pierce County, Washington, that the Attorney General has no intention of bringing the case to trial, -but that he has merely ordered this indictment in order to prevent the case from being considered in the impeachment proceedings brought against him. I,f Rosenbluth had not made an active fight to clear his good name through a Congressional investigation of the case, if he had allowed the matter to drop, there is no doubt-that the, latest indictment would not have been returned. The Attorney General refused to clear him last year, after his first arrest, turning the case over to the prosecuting- attorney of Pierce County, "Washington, who, after a thorough in¬ vestigation, declared: - ', ¦"It is upon these unsupported state¬ ments—more properly termed mental ravings—(referring, to the "confes¬ sions" of Sergeant Roland Pothier, im¬ plicating Rosenbluth, "confessions" which Pothier 1,-iter repudiated) that a complaint was filed against a hitherto capable and efficient officer charging him with the crime "of,murder. It is upon this condition of affairs that the prose- , culor of Pierce County'has been asked to determine whether or not he expects. to prosecute Captain Rosenbluth and Pothier. .,.,.'.., ,^ s , "That we should say he'refn"that there ' is not sufficient evidence to justify his prosecution would in the judgment of' this oflice, not do him justice. He is ' entitled to more than that. He is en¬ titled to a plain, honest statement from us that there is NO evidence against him and this office feels that it is only doing its duty when it willingly and'qf its own accord makes that statement."

But]one noted Hebrew author, and that the Israel forever sings of its scholars and | number of American Jewish boys and saints. Indeed, if the sword has beenkirls that have acquired a thorough the bulwark of some nations; if the|knowledge of Hebrew is a very small Muse has enriched the civilization of 1 (Concluded on, page i.) others; if the statute books have brought| — peace and stability to still other peoples: and lands, then the Torah has been all! these to Israel — its protection, its in-' spiration, its law and its delight. There¬ fore the scholdr is Israel's, national hero, and learning is Israel's mark of nobility. If there has ever been aristoc¬ racy among the Jews it has been Aris¬ tocracy of Learning, an aristocracy which has its roots not in the soil but in the soul of a people. Hillel, Jochanan ben Zakkai, Akiba, Rav and Samuel, Saayda, Jehudah Halevi, Maimonides — these are the names which adorn Israel's Hall of Fame. Thus it jias been and thus, it is. From the ¦very cradle, with the first soothing tones ol mother's lullaby, the babe in the Jewish home is exhorted that "tietter than raisins and almonds, better far than all the sweets of life is the, sweet boon of Torah." The knowledge and obseryancie of the Torah is the "summum bonum" for the Jew.' ¦ Who better than the Jew can under¬ stand the Book of books?- As Dr. Schechter, of blessed memory, expressed it iti his quaint manner, "Our grand¬ mothers and grandfathers who read the Psalms and had a good cry over them, understand them better than all the pro¬ fessors." "After all, is not^lpve," as Goethe said, "the key to understanding?" The Jew then can best understand the Bible because he has loved it best. Therefore it behooves us for the sake of reclaitning our spiritual treasure, to cultivate a generation Of Jewish scholar ship that would save the Bible out of the hands of those who would seek to defile it;> generation that shall culti¬ vate the vineyard of which Israel is the rightful guardian.

Whether we be Orthodox or Reform, we should rejoice with the Co¬ lumbus Hebrew School in establishing a new home for Jewi'sh education in the cause of Israel. What will be in many respects one of the most unique events in the life of Columbus Jewry will take place tomor¬ row afternoon in the synagogues, in the new building 'of the Talmud Torah and in the evening at the Woodman's Hall on East Main' street.

Masuanskv , 4 I ' -^^,^.•|¦fR Legality of Indictment Yet in spite of Prosecutor Selden's complete exoneration, in -spite of the findings of the military board of in- - quiry that Major Cronkhite "met his death by reason of an accidental self- inflicted wound," in spite of the manner in which the "confessions" were secured from the weak Pothier by unscrupulous agents of the Department, "confessions" ' which he repudiated, in spite of the fact that Attorney General Daugherty offi¬ cially stated that there was no Federal jurisdiction in the case, here is a Federal indictment returned by a Grand Jury, brdered to investigate the case by the Attorney General himself. The Attorney General last year, after the first charge against Rosenbluth fell flat, instead of exonerating the captain, turned over some (not all) of the papers in the case to Prosecuting Attorney Sel- den, because the Federal Courts had no jurisdiction. The question of jurisdic¬ tion was not a difficult point of law. It was simple, quite evident, easily de¬ termined. The Attorney retained by Gen¬ eral Cronkhite, father of the dead of¬ ficer, stated in writing that it was out¬ side Federal jurisdiction. Even the At¬ torney General, on March 31, 1921, one week after Captain Rosenbluth was ar¬ rested, wired the U. S. District Attor¬ ney at Seattle that the case was outside Federal control, yet he held Rosenbluth for four months illegally after that date.. (Concluded on page 4.)
