BIRON PROF. HARLOW WILL OPEN INTERFAITH CONFERENCE HOT STUFF Does Benito Mussolini know that way back in -the middle of the last^ century one Benedetto Musolinb, author of an Italian book on Jerusiilem and the Jew¬ ish people, wrote to the then British Prime Minister, Lord Palmers ton, suggesting the establishment of a Jewish State In Palestine? . . .The New York Post's iSamuel Grafton explains the ab.sence of a big Nazi offen¬ sive oh the Western. front by the fact that "there is a short age of pushovers in Europe" . . Probably this is the reason why the German generals defied Hit¬ ler's orders to push through Hol¬ land and Switzerland into France . . . Ex-Premier Paul van Zeeland b( Belgium, who came to this country as counsel for the International Refugee Con- ; ference, says that Hitler is so badly off financially that a two- year war will finish him . . . Now German Consul-General Fritz Weidemann of San Fran¬ cisco Jias declared that he does- i>'t like the Bund ... Which makes It unanimous . . . In the Munich beer-hall bombing, say the Broadway wags. Hitler turn¬ ed out to be "tho little man who wasn't there" . . . While John Chapman claims that Hitler serenades England with that good old song "You're mined, all ^ mined"' . . . One of tho best cracks of tlie week is to be credited to Hal Frank, who in Digest Magazine epitomizes the Nazi motto as "tho ends justify tlie meanness" . . . That Ameri¬ can magazine article which will fjuote Alfred Duff-Cooper to tho effect that if Hitler had not attacked Poland Britian would have been ready to accept Nazi peace conditions may embarrass Mr. Chamberlain no Ut^ile.

Clark Gable's ances¬ tors were Germans called Goeb- Tiel, but there's no connection with Gabby Joe, thank heaven- . . . Eddie Davis, who now helps "Write George White's "Scan¬ dals," was a cab driver until Ed¬ die Cantor gave him a hand up- . . . In his last weejt's "New York Novelette" Wlnchell tells the story ot a Paramount talent scout who lost his job some years ago . . . Times became very hard for him, his wife and child left him, he had to live xvith his brotlier on the .latter's tiny income . : . But this year he got the backing for a play which is rapidly making him a rich man ... Winchell doesn't mention his name, but no harm can come if we tell yoii that the liero of this true stoiy is Oscar ¦ Serlln, and the play is "Life with Father". . . MUSICAL WHISPERS The musical sensation of this season, will be Chemjo Vinaver's chorus of thirty male voices . The liturgical music, Jewish and non-Jewish, that makes up their repertory is something new for American concert-gQers. ...
