BIRON Refugee Emigration At Standstill Due To War Crisis NEW YOUTH WOKK lEADER D "WAR IN VEACE This line may sound a bit dated by the time it reaches your eyes, but U. S. officials abroad have informed our gov¬ ernment that war is Inevitable, because Hitler is definitely con¬ vinced that France and Britain won't fight. . . You may have forgotten, but Hugh Wilson, U. S. Ambassador to Germany, is still oh leave, and at the time of writing it looks as if he won't over go back. . . Preparations are already concluded for powerful .Jewish Legion to fight on the side of England if the war does break out. . . It is also said that in case of war Great Britain will entrust the Jews of Palestine with the defense of that country. . . Among those who are hoping that war won't come are the press agents of America, who realize that no publicity releases stand a chance in papers filled with war news. . . In a recent fit of optimism Naziland and South Africa entered into a new kind ot barter deal. . , South Africa is supposed to give the Germans wool while the German govern¬ ment undertakes to deliver a certain number of tourists every year to the Union. . . RED SWASTIKA Interpretations of the recent SoViet-^fazi non-aggression pact are a dime a dozen hereabouts. . .' :One 'shrewd observer claims ll«,«^ - 'tMat' <t- foreshadows^ the tbraak- \» Z-, Ing Upf of the Home-Berltnr axis and explains why the Italians and Germans have improved their fortifications at the B.ren' ner pass in recent months. . . Another declares: "Either the Soviets will have to import anti- > Semitism or Germany will have to cut it out, but no Berlln-Mcs- cow axis can last with such a divergence in policy toward Jews". . . Though this isn't ex¬ actly our domain, we'd like to point out that commentators seem to forget that a non-ag- greasion pact is not an alliance. . . . The Soviets have had a non-aggression pact with Italy far a long time, and, for that matter, Great Britain and France too have had non-ag¬ gression pacts with Hitler since Munich. . . Perhaps in modern diplomacy non-aggression pacts are the substitute tor declara¬ tions of war. . . REFUGEE REPORT New York's University in Exile, which is giving jobs to some ot the foremost refugee scholars, is setting a precedent. . . . Down in New Zealand pre¬ parations are being made for the inauguration ot an Exile Department in Auckland Uni¬ versity College. . .Distasteful as it is, it is none the less true that a Jewish organization is very seriously negotiating for large- scale Jewish immigration to Ethiopia. . . A Jewish commit tee now in Ethiopia is headed by German Fuernherg. : . What we can't understand is why Jews should make efforts to place victims of Fascism under Italian Jurisdiction. . . All ot which reminds us of the new movement that has been launch¬ ed in Germany, for the coloni¬ zation ot Jews on Mars. . , Some Nazi scientists insist that it can be done, and are calling a conference which will be ad¬ dressed by Buck Rogers and Or¬ son Welles. . . Refugee Arnold Zweig is back in Palestine (Continued on Vaeo 4) PARIS (W N S)—Emigration ot German Jews from the Reich struek new obstacles because of the tense international situa¬ tion, advices reaching here in¬ dicated, stating that Nazi auth¬ orities no longer permit young and middle-aged .lewish men to leave the country. Most 'of Germany's frontiers are virtu¬ ally closed and foreign consul¬ ates have ceased to accept apph- cations tor visas to foreign countries. Intormed sources said that the Nazis, who hither to had placed no obstacles in tho way of Jews wishing to emi¬ grate, providing they gave up most ot their property, were now making distinctions be¬ tween women and aged, on ..the one hand, and young and mid¬ dle-aged Jewish males, who are prevented trom leaving by be¬ ing conscripted into labor bat¬ talions. Most emigrants seen at rail¬ way stations in Berlin and Vien¬ na recently are women, aged men and children, waiting for (Continued on Paso 4) iki CiiiEiittee Saf s ia^i Fi®pa§aida Will IiflieEiM ISSUE DECREES TO SUPPRESS NAZI ACTIVITY IN MOROCCO Rabbi S. Sunamel Rabbi Samuel Sandmel, as¬ sistant to Rabbi David Marx of The Temple, Atlanta, Georgia since 1936, has been appointed as the new director ot the B'nai B'rith Hillei Foundation at the University ot North Carolina. American Morality Can Defeat Hitler Says Former fai NEW YOBK (WNS)—An ethical revulsion ' which ¦ will only proceed from the spirit ot Christianity is the only opposi¬ tion to Hitler "that will become dangerous" to the dictatorship, asserts the startling confession of Herman Rauschnigg, former official ot the Nazi party, in a book called "The Revolution of Nihihsm," published this week by the Alliance Book Corpora¬ tion. This kind ot morality exists in America, Rauschnigg who was once the President ot the Danzig Senate declares, but "America is unstable and can be developed into an outright revolution; to do this ia both a tactical aim of Nazional Social¬ ism, in order to hold America aloof from Europe, and a politi¬ cal one, in order to bring both North and South America into the new order." According to Rauschnigg, the book is "the revelation of the process under¬ lying the ostensibly national inovement, a destructive pro¬ cess ot revolution ot a new and extreme type," made necessary because "even the German liv¬ ing in the Third Reich has had but the vaguest notion of what has been happening to him." , Rauschnigg warns western Civilization that no single terri¬ tory such as Danzig or even Po¬ land is the Nazi goal. Hitler means to accomplish German domination of the world by methods fair or foul, to create a new order in which brute strength may be the ruling fac¬ tor, to destroy Christianity by causing dissension between Ger¬ man Catholicism and Rome, but the schism in the Catholic Church is unimportant in the scheme of things, asserts Rauschnigg, "it will be a l)riet episode on the way to the com¬ prehensive aim ot destroying the Christian faith as the most deep-seated root ot Western civilization and of the social order." FEZ, iWOROCCO (W N S) The Moorish Protectorate Gov¬ ernment took steps to suppress Nazi and Fascist propaganda, recently reported increasing here, by publishing two new de¬ crees in the official gazette de¬ signed to ban distribution ot pamphlets likely to endanger public order and security and to provide a tine of 1,000 to 10,000 francs and five to six years' im¬ prisonment for persons dissemi¬ nating propaganda with funds provided from abroad. Danzig Jews Fear Concentration Camp DANZIG (WNS)—Two thous¬ and Danzig Jews followed the European situation with grave apprehension believing that if war brolce out many would be sent to concentration camps. It •svafS-'i'javncEl that <?onW of„thein ¦'itiU ^hoped and piannjd to""tlee to Poland. Until foreign ex¬ change restrictions were inaug¬ urated two months ago, emigra¬ tion of Jews from this area had progressed so well that they had hoped to evacuate the entire Jewish population .before thle end of the year. The Jewish community supports 1,000 desti¬ tutes, with the aid ot contribu¬ tions from United States sources. A month ago, forty- five Jews were drafted to clear land near the Polish frontier, They were recalled recently be¬ cause ot the crisis. The only Jews in Danzig who now are permitted to work are two physicians, a dentist, a lawyer and six skilled laborers.

Repre¬ sentatives ot the Jewish com¬ munity announced that only two synagogues will be rebuilt at the present time inasmuch as many Jewish families had al¬ ready emigrated from Germany and the need for additional houses Of worship was not pres¬ sing. It was also reported that the Na?i government will allow Jews to gather for prayer during the coming high holi¬ days, Permission to gather for prayer on tlie high holidays has been granted to Jews in Berlin and not yet to Jews in other cities throughout Ger¬ many. Jews living in border towns of East Prussia were ordered by the Ministry of War to move into the interior, according to reports which said that the Ges¬ tapo set up a special police division whose duties will be to watch all Jewish activity in the disputed area.

WASHINGTON (WNS) —Henry D. Allen, an admitted anti-Semite and a free-lance battler against what he termed "Jewish Communism," told the House Committee on un-Ameri¬ can activities that he had con¬ ferred with the counselor of the Italian Embassy, who had wished liim success in his work. He also said he believed the nations ot the world could he treed ot Jews by consigning the entire racei to the Island of Madagascar. Allen, a former member ot William Dudley Pelloy's anti-Semitic Silver Shirts and with other organiza¬ tions ot that ilk, said he was the agent' of Mrs. Leslie Fry, an anti-Semitic leader who headed the so-called Militant Christian Patriots in Los Ange¬ les and published the Christain Free Press. During his ('isit to the Italian Embassy, he'ask¬ ed Guiseppe CoSmelli, now. charge d'Affaires ot the Em¬ bassy how the work of anti- Semitism was going on in Italy. His main job in Washington, Allen said, was to organize a picket line of Arabs around the Mayflower Hotel in protest against a Jewish conference in Palestine.
