At least, I may safely say—Envoy Ex¬ traordinary—for wlio could have been more extraordinary than Chonoli? The new."! dis|>atche.s, as far as I .know, did not take note of the departure of Clmnoh, and yet within the ranks of professional Jewry, no recent sailing in Palestine was more talked about. ^yhat a Man If you have ever met Qionoli, yoU will understand—or even if you have ever visited within the intimate realms of the liowers that bc in New York Jewry. Chonoh was ,uniquc. He toiled not, neither did he spin—yet he was every¬ where, knew c very l)ody—went evcry- wiicrc, and misse<l few things. Clionbh of course is preeminently the ZinniKt. He could claim intimacy with liraiidcis, Weizmann, SbkoloWj Lip.sky and Rothenbcrg. He could more than claim intimacy. He could get of their hard earned cash. And if lie perhaps schnorrcd—he was no ordinary schnorrer. The New York Times used to say that it did not solicit advertising—it "accepted them." So , Chonoh might say of the gifts made, to ¦ hiiji, What—No Second Pair! One day a leading Zionist, who operates one of the largest clothing stores in New York asked Chonoh to come np and pre¬ sented hini with a suit of clothing. The donor looked 011 as Chonoh cast his eyes over the suit; He waited fur an expression of beaming gratitude. Chonoh looked here and. there and finally looked up. "Where is the second [Miir of pants P" he asked. Flowers for the Lovely ' Chonoh was magnificently chivalrous. Like a true aristocrat, he entertained great respect for God's noblest creature —woman. He knew how to appreciate a great lady. ' One great and fine woman of whom Chonoh was justly fond is Mrs., Archi¬ bald Silverman, the well-known Zionist leader. ¦Chonoh never forgot,!any of Mrs. Sil¬ verman's birtlidays, Always there came on snch occasions a magnificent floral bouquet from Chonoh—-with bill at¬ tached. . The C. O. D; gift coming from Chonoh was dilTerent, Mrs. Silverman, laiew. .' She understood and smiled and learned to like these ''gifts" from Chonoh. Getting Citizenship Papers When Chonoh went to take out his citizenship papers, he came before Su¬ preme Court Justice Aaron J. Levy. When Chonoh came into the courtroom, Jiidge Levy called out Chonoh—who i>ro- ceedcd to the bench, taking his place by the side of the judge, and nearly wreck¬ ing the decorum of the court. Later, Chonoh was takeii before a woman clerk to i^ive his citizenship oath, Chonoh was told to raise his hand, as the wornan repeated the oath. "Vas vill die yachne von mir?" shouted Chonoh, aa his hand was uplifted. Chonoh has gone to Palestine, proriiis* irig the Zionists who raised the money for the trip, that he would remain there a minimum of three years. There is a little anxiety, however, on the. part of the American Zionists, tliat the Palestinian Zionists may raise a fund to send him back to America.- You see, how it is when you. arc a good man—everybody wants to send you some¬ where else. One of the two or three leading Zion¬ ists in America described Chonoh a.^ a "genius" and as a transcending psychol¬ ogist, though Chonoh himself docs not; know the meaning o;f the word "psychol¬ ogist." l-'.irewell, Chonoh, as ¦ you enter the Promised Ijind, don't forget to keep your promise to remain there for three years. ¦ Such a Business Speaking of the recent dcpressioi, they ¦ tell a story about a Jewish merchant and a rabbi. The rabhi, it npivcars, had never passed the place of business of this. Jewisii merchant, j who was incidentally a very devoted member of his congregation, and whom the rabbi regarded as very pious. All the more surprised therefore was the rabhi one Sabbath afternoon, when he ¦passed the merchant's store, and saw it —of all thiiigS-Kipen. He stopped .is though paralyzed. He decided he would look into the store. Maybe something extraordinary had happened. He. came in—and there was the owner Mr. Greenberg, standing and talking K a customer. As the custdmer left, the rabbi ap proached Mr. Greenberg. "How is this, Mr. Greenberg? Yo\ —carrying on a 'gesheft* on Sabbath!" "Say, ¦RaW)i," said ' Mr. Greenberg, "come with me for a minute," and he le<l the rabbi through the ^aclcs of goods. "See these pants niarkc<l down to fl.25. They cost me i^J.OO a pair. These shirts at $.85. They cost me over a dollar. You call this a 'gesheft'? I am giving things away. Can't you run a diarity on Shabboth?" How Not to Die Dear liy the Way: I guess you think you are smart. If you are, answer in your column how a Jew may be kept from dying. Ya-kuni Ptivkaii. Answer: The answer to that is easy. Any Jew who doesn't want to die may easily avoid it. Al! he has to do is to become u nieshumad (an apostate) and he will not die—he will "payKcr." Collecting a Debt Speaking as we were a couple of par¬ agraphs back about a Jewish merchant, (Continued on page 2) ROF.

Are You Doing Your Duty to the Chronicle In Its Present Crisis? (All iidilurial) With this issue of the Ohio Jewish Chronicle, this publication enters upon its 1 I th year of faithful serv¬ ice to the Jewish people of Columbus and Central Ohio. Anyone familiar with the progress of Jewish life in this section of the state, need not be reminded of the splendid role played by the Chronicle. It has promoted every civic and philanthropic enterprise launched in Columbus, even as it has stimulated in¬ terest in all the Synagogues, Orthodox, Conservative and Reform. One of the outstanding leaders of our community has declared, .that the Ohio Jewish Chron¬ icle is now a rfeal communal necessity; an institution which must be maintained regardless of economic con- ditionsi He asserted in an interview with the editor ' of the Chronicle that it is the duty of every subscriber to cooperate with the publishers of tlie Chronicle by paying his arinual subscription regularly and promptly. A large number of Chronicle readers are, at pres¬ ent, delinquent. We hope that they will see their way clear to straighten out their accounts at this time. We send out statements but once a year; to do so more often would entail a great deal of labor and extra expense. When you receive your bill this coming week, make it your business either to mail in your check or to settle with us personally at the office of the Chronicle. In common with our colleagues throughout this land, the publishers of the Ohio Jewish Chronicle have been faced during the past year with many dif¬ ficulties. Advertising is the chief source of our revenue. This has fallen off over 85% in volume, due to the smaller appropriations of all business concerns. A number of our best accounts, prominent retail mer¬ chants, have seen fit to withdraw altogether from ad¬ vertising in all weekly newspapers as per the sugges¬ tion of the Retail Merchants Association. This has been a grievous blow which has staggered us in our efforts to serve our readers. We are, therefore, hoping that during the coming year all our readers will cooperate with us-in order to make our burdens lighter. It is our fond hope that they will realize the great responsibility that rests upon them. They must come forward and boost their own sectarian press just as this press is boosting them. They must ever remember that the Eiiglish-Jevvish Press is advancing the interests of their ancestral faith; that it is assisting mightily in creating a virile Jewish consciousness; that it is bringing to the young genera¬ tion the messages of their prophets and sages of old; and, finally, that it is working in season and out of season for a better understanding between Jew and non-Jew. If they will keep these glaring facts in mind, they will inevitably give tbe Ohio. Jewish Chronicle a much more wholehearted support and en¬ couragement, and thereby assist in bringing it back to its pre-depression days.

Declaring that the building of Palestine is basic to Jewish life, Dr. Wise asserts that "it is jubt imposliible to think of life as a series of Polands and Hun- garys, Hitlers and Cuzas, life would not be worth living if there were not a hope of an emergence from hell and d re¬ surgence to that fullness and freedom and noble creati\eness of life which Eret? Yisroel promises " In his statement Dr Wise said, among other things, that the American Palestine Campaign is raising funds in order to prepare a place m the ancient Homeland of the Jewish people for the multitudes of European Jews who are so anxious to flee from the misery and squalpr that surround them "Some day," he declared, "we will build a great Eretz Yisrotl and it will light up the darkness of the Galuth The dark¬ ness of the Galuth will never be lighted up until we have a great Eretz Yisroel I do not mean physically, geographically and materially Ihe great darkness of The following eommittee.

A discussion will follow the Rabbi's address. light of Eretz Yisroel shall have irradi¬ ated the darkness of Jewish life That is what Eret^ Yisrocl will do, and the day will come when our joy and pride in Eretz Yisroel will lift us up above the meanness and pettiness and unworthmcss of the Galuth and its Ghetto We shall stand in the' sight of one another and of all men as the brothers and sisters of those daring i)ionetring Jews who under God jKrfornied a miracle, the benediction of which aiiall lift up the whole of the Jewish peojile I appeal to American Jews to give themselves whole-heartcdlj to our great and ultimately tnumphant cause."

Ghonoh Snys Adieu Thc.ie United States have scut tlicir Envoy l':xtniordiiiary and Ainljassador Plciiipotcntiary to Palestine.
At least, I may safely say—Envoy Ex¬ traordinary—for wlio could have been more extraordinary than Chonoli?
The new."! dis|>atche.s, as far as I .know, did not take note of the departure of Clmnoh, and yet within the ranks of professional Jewry, no recent sailing in Palestine was more talked about. ^yhat a Man If you have ever met Qionoli, yoU will understand—or even if you have ever visited within the intimate realms of the liowers that bc in New York Jewry.
Chonoh was ,uniquc. He toiled not, neither did he spin—yet he was every¬ where, knew c very l)ody—went evcry- wiicrc, and misse
