Central Ohio's Only Jewish Newspaper ' 'Reaching Etiery Home A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWISH HOME Devoted to American ' and , Jewish Ideals VOLUME XVI—No. 20. COLUMBUS, OHIO, JUNE 9, 1933 Per Year $3.00; Per Copy loc fi' By the Way By David Schwartz It's HiB Trade Bruno Lessing, who spends his time satisfying the wanderlust, tells one about Mrlciid of his, a Mjr. Drcyfuss. The lory is true, Mr. Lessiiig vouches. 1, To get to the story, this Mr. Drcyfuss ecently x-isitcd Rome and there ot course 'fccnt to see St. Peter's Cathedral. He was surrounded hf a group of guides and finally selected the least.obtrusive look¬ ing. As they entered the church, the guide stopped beside a ghrine and knelt for a moment; "Say," said Drcyfuss, "don't waste time. I just want you to tell mc about the architecture. I'm a Jew, you know." "So am L". replied the guide, "but this is my business," One by Harry Lauder And while we're telling stories we might tell the one that the Scotsman, Sir Harry Lauder, has been telling recently. Commenting on the fact that the world was hearing much about Jews these days; Sir Harry observed that he had been as¬ sociated with Jews for twenty-five years . )nd "they were the whitest men he had met." Then Sir Harry told the story of a Scotsman who went into a bar in the corner of which were gathered a number of Jews. y Ordering a "pony" for which he paid, ,:¦=• Scot commenced to laud the Jews dly, saying that he had worked for ,000 of them, and that he wished there (-ere 40,000 of them. ¦^ So consistent was the Sc'ot in his praise of the Jews that every Jew at the bar stood him a glass of whiskey, and when the Scot eventually staggered out all lit by the whiskey bought by the Jews, one of the Jews asked the barman who was the man who had just left. •¦ "Oh," said the barman, "he is the grave-digger out in the Jewish cemetery." Well, we have told so many stories at the i'xpenjfi of the- Scotch-that we'll .for¬ give Sir Harry for his quid pro quo. Alexander Hamilton's Hebrew Johaii Smertenko in his recently pub- Hshed life of Alexander Hamilton de¬ clares that Hamilton used to,boast that at the age of four he astounded his par¬ ents by. reciting the Ten Commandments in Hebrew, Hamilton, we know, had a Jewish tutor in his infancy. And there has been a great deal of speculation as to whether or not his father was a Jew. Wfe know that his mother was first married to. a Jevv, but later she left him. Yet there has been some vague surmising that later she also lived with her former husband for some time. Woodward and some others hold to the belief that there was a Jewish strain in Hamilton. Personally, I have never been convinced of it, but the vvhole paternity of the great American statesman is wrapped up in mystery. Why She Wears /Em That wasn't a had retort that Marleni: Dietrich, .she who prefers pants to skirts, made when she said that if Hitler can wear pants, she can. No Labor Troubles Here , If I gave every reader of this column 3'couple of thousand guesses as to which business firm in New York has the most exemplary labor conditions, I dare say, they would all be wrong. I am con¬ vinced that I know—and it is none other, would you believe it, than the Ex-Lax company, over which that ardent lover of Hebraic culture, Mr. Israel Matz, prc- ; sides. Why do I say this? Because for one thing, every employee of that company gets an increase every year, and there has been no exception to this-rule in this era of depression. Because, again, no, employee is ever fired, once he is hired. J And because again, all- employees get a free lunch every noon. The negro car washer at this compaiiy, I am told, gets no less than tS2 weekly. It is a little dangerous to write such items as this, as immediately there is a leap to the concTiision that it is just a bit of surreptitious publicity. Let me say that though I once met Mr. Matz. he wouldn't kno'w me from Adam, and it has been so many years sinpe I saw him that I doubt if I woulft Ifiiow him. Further, that I know nothing of his product, and have never used it. And still further, that I am quite sure from what I have heard about Israel Matz, that if he knew this was being written, he would seek to dissuade me from it. In fact, the one time that I met Matz was the year of my arrival in 'New York. By reason of Matz's interest in things Jewish (he for years subsidized a He- (Continued on page 2) Community WiU Honor Local Scholar June 25 Rabbi Leopold Grcenwald Elaborate preparations are being made by Dr. B.

B'nai B'rith to Picnic at Oak Park Sunday, July 16 Sunday, July 16th, is the date set for the annual B'iiai B'rith picnic of Zion Lodge No. 62. It is to bc held at Oak Park on Sunbury Pike where facilities have always been found sufficient to take care of the hundreds who attend this an¬ nual event. According to Harry Schwartz, local B'nai B'rith president, Sam Gordon, 009 Liiley Ave., one of the most active B'nai B'rith members in recent years, has been chosen to head a committee on ar¬ rangements for this afifair.

Leo Yassenofi Heads Temple Brotherhood for Coming Season At a reorganization meeting of the Brotherhood of BrytJ^n Road Temple Tuesday night, Leo Yassenoff was elected president; B. B. Friedman, vice-presi¬ dent; Samuel Shinbach, secretary; and Robert Weiler, treasurer. These men were chosen for the Board of Trustees: Allan Tarshish, A. B. Weinfeld, Dr. S. D. Edelman, Robert Lazarus, Robert Levy, M. L. Herzberg, Erwin Rosenthal, Leonard Kohn, R. L. Zalk, Ben Neus¬ tadt, Charles Cahen, Max Gumble and Clarence Isaacs. Rabbi Samuel Gup presided at the meeting and outlined the plans and pur¬ poses of the organization, which will hold a series of dinner meetings in the Temple's new vestry hall, starting in the fall. Until the rebuilding of the new addi-. tion, the Temple has lacked proper fa¬ cilities for holding such meetings, and the earlier brotherhoods have been obliged to seek other places for banquets and its aflfairs. It was the general coi^ scnsus of opinion that the real purposes of the organization can now be better serve with the clbser identification with the Temple thus made possible. Although prominent outside speakers will occasionally be scheduled, the talent embodied in the organization itself will be utilized more than in the past. In accepting the presidency Mr. Yas¬ senoff expressed his desirq to make the Brotherhood a constructive factor in the building of a greater Temple, and a com¬ mon social and spiritual meeting ground for all men interested in the -Temple's wel fare. Max L. Herzberg .-will serve as dele¬ gate at .the Convention of. the .National Federation of Temple Brotherhoods to be held in Chicago June 18, 19 and 20.
