Mr. Fromcnson, veteran of many ;'»ti"Vish battles, is Cor fight to the hilt, '.i^itc plan of meeting anti-Semitism by 0|, ¦jftiioring and ridiculing it," Mr. Fro- iiK'iisnii hrands aa completely ineffective. Wc are with Mr. Fromcnson thor- f'Nf^'lily in the matter of fighting it, but \\c believe he is wrong in coupling ig- 'I'lfing and ridiculing as though they wcru one thing. l^ilicule, it seems to us, far from bc,- i'lL^ the .same as ignoring, is quite the ¦ i!c thing. Ridicule is a very fight- ''l' ¦¦'It of thing instead. Ridicule i; g';!i:i!r under the skin of your oppon- t^iilH ill the way that hurts most... Blqcd- nig Iiini while you maii!j|ip an austere iilni, ,uid he is the moreTmiiscd because >f ynur very calm. Of i:aurse, ridicule has its limitations. U niniircs a certain amount of intelli- t;cn,:e lo be able to feel the darts of ii<liciile, just as it requires an even j,'i\nter amount of intelligence to know liow to deal it. But it is a terribly ef- fciLtivc wiiiipon, it seems to us, Mr.'Fro- iiieiisuii.

He adds: "I refer nut only to the so-called ignorant. It has heen my observation that the so- called intellectuals are more easily taken in by mass suggestion than others, bc- cau-sc their experience is drawn not from life, but more comfortably from printal paper." New York Times Suggestion How arc you going to figlit race hatred iunon.L,' such a . class ? Will argument, gooil will meetings or protest meetings do any good? Ridicule on the other hand may. Writ- ' ig in the New York Times on the orniuf; this is being written, John .laiiiherlain, book critic of that paper, xprtjs.^es the.view that Kauffman and Ryskinti, the Jewish playwrights who n.-^oii satire a.s a weapon in exposing the Huff nf politics in their play,; "Ot" Tlice I Sing" employ the same weapon against Hitler. Make It Easier for Aryans piianiberlain points out that Edgar Ansell Mowrer, the American corre¬ spondent in Berlin wlio exposed the Kazjs, has already given a hint of what may be'done, in satirizing the Nazis by bis suggestion that "tlie Nazis make the bar examinations in Germany, easier, so that even the German non-Jevvs will be aljle to pass them.. Thus, they will suc¬ ceed in having as many Nazi lawyers as Jewish lawyers, and they won't have to persecute the Jewish Lawyers. The Nazi Scene The Nazi scene should offer, it would sccni, a most fertile field for the talents of Kanffinan and Ryskind. Consider' the recent Gemian election for instance. What a show scene that would make!. The holding of an election for candidates for the Reichstag with only one party offering candidates. I,can see the street procession. The big signs bla7x>ning: "VOTE FOR THE NAZI CANDIDATES. DON'T VOTE FOR ANYBODY WHO CAN'T BE '^pTED FOR." . can sec the intense anxiety as the electorate waits to hear whether the Nazi ndldates win or not.
