¦'-.*¦",;*: >>^/AStv Central Ohio's Only Jewish Newspaper Reaching Eifery Home A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR THE JEWISH HOME Devoted to American and Jewish Ideals VOI.UMK XVI—No. COLUMBUS. OHIO. jUNK lO. 19.33 Per Year $3.00; Per Copy loc By the Way By David Schwartz A Liat for Mac I^epresentalive McKadden tells Qjn- gress.ihat il is llic Jews who get the gold and silver, and the nan-Jews, lilie poor Mac hiinscU, who get the little meaniug- Icss slips of paper. Sure, Mac, you're right, and Iiow ! .1 , am suri>rised though you didn't go fur¬ ther and incnliun stiiiie of these "Jews" who have all the ^roUl and silver; tor iuKtancc, you might have hcynn with Jacob P. Morgan, John D. RocI<cfcller- owitch, Owen D. Youngnian, Charles M. SchwahKtein and so on down tlie line. What did yuii say, Mac? 1 am listing non-Jews? Well, what's the difference, Mac. if lliey licllevc any of your other ^'.tenicnts, they'll believe that too. i/ir First Aid for Anti-Semitism What I should like to do for jieopie like the distinguished congressman i.s to get out a "First Aid to Anti-Semites." Take Mac for instance. His getting up in Congress and charging that it is the Jews who are trying to take this comi' try off the gold standard! The only rea¬ son I can figure why Mac jumped to this conclusion is that he mu!;t have read something in this column, published about 'iie time when the departure from tnc irold standard was iirst mentipncd, of 'mw the Goldsteins were changing tlieir ^'ime to Silverstein. - Xow a book such as I have mentioned iyould do a lot of good for ignoramuses like Mac. If yoti. arc going to be an anti-Semite, you might as well he one magna cum laude, as it were. Those Jewish Hicks In my "First Aid to Anti-Semitism," I would have listed all of the various reasons for attacking Jews in the past. It would save such people as Mac from making complete jackasses of themselves, and more tlian that, after Mac had men¬ tioned one reason, he could just turn the pnge and find another reason. After infhitirm what Mac? . Now if he-.will turn-to this book which 'I pn.pose, lie would find that in the early days after the dispersion of the Jews, there was prejudice against the Jews lja.sc(l~at least one, of the Romans so liascd it—on the charge that Jews were not a commercial people—just a poor bunch of hick farmers, from. Judea. . Then if Mac wanted another good rea- .son—and he would find that this other reason has been given repeatedly—it is that Jews greatly like the delicacy of the blood of Christian children on Passover. In fact, Mac will find that it was charged that the Jewish law even made this com¬ pulsory. *r am a little-of a vegetarian myself and so have no desire whatever for children's hlood, but 1 would like to get a certain congressman's blood on Election day (in a figurative sense), hor this fellow, Mac, has been saying the same sort of things in Congress before. ToBcanint Says No There are some people of sense and .sensibility in the world—despite the low iinpreasion of tlie luunaii species that you get from the ravings of such a man as Congressman McFadden. For instance, Toscatiini. ¦ The refusal of the greatest, of all musical conductors to go to Bay- reulli for the Wagner festival is an act of the finest ."iort. Tliere is no musical event that <|uitc compares to the Bay- reuth festival, and there is no conductor like Toscanini and the fact- that he, Ihougli not a Jew, turned down this ^at invitation as a protest against Hit- ism is a gesture as beautiful in its V as his conducting is ih another. The Wagner Family Toscanini sent his letter of declination to the daughter-in-law of Wagner, the musical genius who found no better use for some of his time than to sit down and write a book—Ocr Judenthnm Mu.\ih\ attempting to prove that Jews had 110 musical ability. It is difiicult to find a family that has done so. much for what I might call cultural Jew-baiting as that of Wagner. It will be recalled that Wagner's .son-in-law was Houston Stew art Chamlierlain. the man who wrote ai e.v:hanstivc work, done in' the highly documented pseiido-scientific style of the .Germans, dainniiig the.-Jews from every inigle, and giving it all the veneer ol the purest science. Wagner Jilted by Jewess W^igner's case is most peculiar hecause his stepfather was said to'havc heen Jew^ ish, and Krne.'it Newman. W i';ner's priir cipal biogra|)her, even .s|.cculates as to whether his father wasn't a Jew. The ivrincipal reason that is generally given for Wagner's veiumi against Jews is that ts a young man—long before fame had ome to hini—-a Jewish girl with whani le was in love, jilted him.

It is said that not only does Cantor L;ingc interpret the paH.sages in the prayor book witli a fervor that is ovcrwhchiiing. but that he sings with a poetic feeling which is musi¬ cally .j^ery charming. For several years elTorts have been made to get Cantor Lange out of Rus.sin, but the Soviet authorities would not jjcr- mit his departure, since he was drafted into government service to entertain the vast Russian masses, wlio gather in open spaces to have the best artists and sing¬ ers perfornj for them, and Comrade Lange was a prime favorite with them. The coming oi Cantor Lange is spon¬ sored by the Jewish Maccabees of Co- lunihus, an organization which is inter¬ ested not only in benevolent work, but also .in social and cultural .advancement of every kind. The Maccabees in their two years of existence have prcA-en they deserve the patronai^e of everybody in the city, and by attending the services and concert featuring Cantor Lange, the Jew¬ ish people will not only hear one of the best singers in the world today, but will also afford this splendid organization the needed boost to enable it to continue with its excellent work. Tickets may be had by calliiig G.'\rfield •5914, FAirfa.x 'lol2, or by every member of the JMaccabees of Columbus. Local Delegates Will Attend Annual Union Convention In Chicago Mr.s. Samuel M.

Worshippers Maul Hitlerite PARIS, June 12—Quick action by the police was neces.sary to save Fviedrich Kaudi, Iir<-year-old German Hitler sym¬ pathizer, who broke up Sabbath observ¬ ance services tn Strasbourg by .shouting "Heil Hiller!"

Harry Potasky, Dayton, and Max W. Kramer, St. Louis, Mo. Next year's convention city will be St. Louis, Mo. A resolution finally adopted late Mon¬ day a fternoon diseouraRes Jcwislv pro« test meetings on the theory that they "make it all the harder on our Jewish brethren iu Geriuany." The U'liai B'rith, according to the resoUiti(hi, will seek relief for German Jews.through the co¬ operation of Christian nations. .¦\doptioii of the resolution, however, followed a stormy session in which the B'nai B'rith anti-protest Attitude wa.s vigorously denounced as "slui?gish." Rabbi S. H.Markowitz, of Fort Wayne, and Michael Sharlitt, of Cleveland, both oppnstid the resolution. They denounced it with such vigor that their speeches, bringing many of the delegates to their feet, threatened to disrupt the session, They decried the )H)Hcy of "watchfu\ waiting" wliich B'nai B'rith nnd the .¦\niericai] Jewish as.sociation have been pracliciug in regard to the German situ¬ ation, and pleaded for action in reliev¬ ing the .'illO,0()0 Jews in Gerniany. It was Charles Rosenbaum, of Denver, vice president of the .'\mcrican . Jewish association, and Sidney G. Kusworm, Dayton, a member of the B'nai B'rith e.Kcculive committee., who' restored tlie convention to order. They promised that allhougli B'nai B'rith would frown on protest meetings, it would work cease¬ lessly in brint(iiig world-wide pressure lo bear on Hitler. Enlist Christian Aid Protest meetings held in America after first reports of Nazi persecutions last winter only .succeeded in making the Ger¬ man Jew's lot harder, declared Kusworm. "Wc must enlist the aid of our Christian friends in fighting a Christian bigot." '¦ .^nolher method of bringing anti-scmi- lism in Cerniaiiy to an end was voiced at a dinner program Monday night by Sig¬ mund Livin^'ston,, for 20 years chairman of the order's aiiti-defamation league. "We must figbt this issue not as a Jewish fraternity,, nor as Jews," he said, "but as Americans. It is an American issue. Through organization we can im¬ press upr>n the American mind the cvi! to come . from permitting Xazi propa-. ganda to spread throvigh this country. \merica has enough hatred, without tvansplantiiig here the hatreds of Europe. Spread Propaganda 'The Nazij! have organized in this country no less than in any other. They are prepared to spread their anti-Semitic^ literature. I am here to say^ we will give them a great battle. 'The Nazis say tlie stories of atrocities against the Jew are untrue. I do not know—maybe they arc. Maybe not a single Jew has heen mistreated physically. But how can they deny atrocity when they have deprived the Jew a right to f6llow his vocation ? When they have expelled Iff? of their lending university professors because they are Jews? When they have boycotted us? I say this "the worst atrocity ever i>er pet rated." Mr. Livingstpn, who has done more an any other Jew to develop B'nai B'rith fr<im a group of lodge men to an organization for the -advancement of world peace, charity and culture, spoke as one whose idealism for a golden fu¬ ture has not diminished in years of <lis- couragemcnt. He pictured a "break¬ water of human kindness to shelter the lio|)es and dreams of humanity," that \vill be built when nations and races discard their hatreds and prejudices. The , Monday night banquet was the social highlight of the convention. Danc¬ ing concluded the evening's program of entertainment. B*NAI B'RITH LODGE TO 'MEET MONDAY EVENING Zion Lodge No. (i2.
