BIRON i-Semitic Ir^ips JperaliHg In NAZI HOT STUFF With all the talk about the growing strength of the uhder- sround anti-Nazi movement in ^ho Reich We want to relay to you the rumor that reaches us from Dublin, to the effect that the anti-Nazi revolt in Germany 3s scheduled to flare forth befdre the end of 1939 .. . Some people bite off more than they can chow; and others bite off more than they can feed . . . The lat ler is the case with Herr Hitler, ior whom food supply for Aus¬ trians and Sudeten Germaiis is becoming a serious problem It is to whet the aippetite of the German people for South Ajneri- ¦ can territory that the Nazis have opened a permanent exhibition showing the natural resources and products of that continent ,. . And did you notice Goebbels' speech at the opening of the Leipzig Trade Fair, where Club¬ foot No. 1 told his enthusiastic audience that the Nazis would be able to run the U. S. much better than the present administra¬ tion? Tragic situations are de- -veloping in anti-Nazi Aryan families who only recently man¬ aged to get out of the Roich . . The oldsters find themselves in -violent conflict with their teen¬ age children, who after six years ¦ of Nazi education refuse to be¬ lieve that Hitler is anything less liiah divinity. There is hope that Great Britain will not curtail Jewish Immigration to Palestine too drastically, because the Polish and Roumanian governments are pleading with Mr. Chamberlain to keep the gates open if he ¦wants to' prevent anti-Jewish ex¬ cesses in their countries ... Is it because lie knows how to move pawns on the poUtical board tliat Chamberlain is the president of th6 Warwickshire, England, Chess Association? He ¦doesn't know how to play chess, but his friends insist that he'll be the one to give the Nazis their final check-mating . . .Of course Nazi influence in Czecho¬ slovakia had nothing to do with that order for the removal of Thomas Masaryk's portrait from tiie New York Czech Consulate . . . The full story of that mys¬ terious Nazi airplane with Ger¬ man officers aboard which was wrecked in a French zone closed to foreign air traffic won't be told till the present European mess is straightened out—if by that time there are any surviv¬ ors left to tell the tale ... The Nazis, feeling that General Franco has all the guns and -ammunition he needs by this time, are now smuggling them to the Nazi "cells" in South American countries, hidden in bales of innocent-looking mer¬ chandise . . . That's why a slight fire in the hold of a German ship ¦so often causes a serious explo- bion nowadays. HEBE WE HEAR Washington circles feel certain that the mysterious SOS call some weeks ago from a ship that never was located came from a British vessel accidental¬ ly torpedoed by Nazis practising ¦off the Canary Islands, where they have submarine bases now ...

It also maintains 25 infant wel¬ fare centers throughout Pales¬ tine. There are 55,774 school children under Hadassah's care who are examined regularly all through their school years by Hadassah doctors and nurses, There are also moire than.25,000 mothers and babies registered in these centers for medical care and training, in personal and so¬ cial hygiene.

Quoting article 7 of our treaty or convention with Great Britain in 1924 with reference to the British Mandate over P'ales- tihe: "Nothing contained in the present convention, shall be af¬ fected by any modification which may be made in the terms of the Mandate, as recited above, un¬ less such modification shall have been assented to by the United States." American Zion¬ ist' of flclals said, that "disturb¬ ing" reports that Great Britain is "seriously considering" the establishment of an independent Arab State giving the Jewish population a permanent minor- ity status," prompted the Sena¬ tors to emphasize their concern that the policy of Palestine be unchanged. The following Sen¬ ators signed the statement: Sen¬ ators King, O'Mahoney, Shep- pard, Smathers, Guftey, Logan, Minton, Davis, Lewis, Walsh, Neely Burke, Murray, Barbour, Nye, Wagner and Mead. NEW YORK (WNS) —Great Britain will never be able to create an indeperident Palestine state without the consent and cooperation of the Jews in Pales¬ tine, and she cannot get this co¬ operation or consent it the'Jews are to be reduced to the status of a permanent minority in such a state, according to Dr. Step¬ hen S. Wise, who returned last week from the London Confer¬ ence on Palestine. "Britain's at¬ titude on the Palestine situation was due to the presence "in the shadow" of Hitler, TVEussolini, and the Mufti. But if the halt- million Jews now living in Pales¬ tine say 'No, we will not cooper¬ ate in the making of'an inde¬ pendent in Palestine State,' there will be no independent Pales¬ tine state.". Rabbl Wise reiterated the thought that government comes only from the consent of the governed when he drew a paral¬ lel between the present situa¬ tion and that existing in the American colonies 160 years ago when Britain enacted stamp, laws to tax tho colonial pif;'^' eors. These laws, he Bald, covi«v, jLot ba entorcud, JivcauacjlhR ~ coKhfflts did ilot v/ant thom en¬ forced, and the Independence of America resulted. "I thinlc England understands this situa¬ tion," he declared, but he added that Great Britain's position was a most difficult one with the shadow of -war hovering con¬ stantly over the land. "I may not like what his Majesty's Govern¬ ment may .decide to do with Pal¬ estine, yet at the same time I cannot forget that tomorrow— or the next day—-England, as the -world's great democracy, may be called, upon to stand In the trenches as the defender ot all that is democratic in the world.
