In the absence of Babbi Samuel Giip, who Is now on his way back from Europe, Rabbi David Philipson, of Cincinnati, Ohid, officiated and delivered a most impressive eulogy. Burial was made in the Green Lawn Cemetery. Mr. Gumble was born in Co¬ lumbus, August 20, 1863, and attended ^ the Columbus public schools. ' He attended the Cin¬ cinnati Law School, where ho was graduated with the degree ot bachelor ot law in 1883.

This lecture to be delivered by this charming, young Palestinian woman should not be mis,sart by anyone in Co¬ lumbus. Tho entire .lewish community is Invited to attend. Miss Goronchik, who arrived recently from her native home in Jerusalem aboard the S. S. Manhattan, is here in the United States on a lecture tour ot a few months. From Columbus sho will leave for St. Louis, wliere several lectures have been sched¬ uled for her. While here she Is the guest of Mrs. Finkelstein, 008 Carpenter St. From the offices of the United JTewish Fund of Coluim- bus this week, comes the report that $6,000 must still be raised by local Jewry in order that the 1939 campaign goal may be reached. So far every effort being made by the youth groups and the women of city to solicit contribu¬ tions towards this shortage has met with extraordinary response: Under the capable leadership of Dr. Don Shusterrnan, heading the youth, excellent results have already been produced and con¬ tributions both large and, small have been reported. The same wholehearted generosity is also ¦ coming through the mails in re¬ sponse to an appeal sent out by E. J. Schanfarber, chairman of the United Jewish Fund. In a statement by Mr. Schan¬ farber on this year's plan to meet the preisent emergency of our people, he said:— "I realize full well that the most of our Jewish women in Columbus and surrounding towns feel the tragedy of our people and are eager to do what¬ ever they can to help. In the past we have been accustomed to look to our women folk large¬ ly for inspiration. I am satis¬ fied that this measure ot inspir¬ ation will be greatly increased and will become even more excm- ^n-"^ when it Is accompanied by of dollars and cents. It is true Newlfrg; Emigrali®!! Of German Jews Say Hazi lead BERUN (WNS)—A new or¬ ganization to speed emigration of Jews from Germany is to be organized under the terms of a law . announcement here malc- Ing it mandatory for'every German Jew and every "state¬ less" Jew in Germany to be in¬ cluded in its membership. It vvill be ai state within a state, regulating every phage of Jew¬ ish life, under the jurisdiction of Dr. Wilhelm Frlck, Minister of the Interior. The organization, t o b e known as the Reich Association of Jews in Germany, wlir have to be self-supporting, must take charge of all schooling for Jews, hospitalization and, when neces¬ sary, food and clothing. The sole purpose of the new organi¬ zation will be to speed emigra¬ tion. The object of all this was made' obvious, in an editorial appearing in the "Voelkischer Beobacher," which said: "The National Socialist Nazi goal re¬ mains the emigration of every Jew from Germany." , Pacing the creation of a Nazi- inspired organization Jews in the Reich settled down to what is probably the most crushing task they have been forced to face in their entire six years of Nazi oppression. Less than 25 per cent of the entire Jewish population will now be required I to teed, clothe, and educate the majority of Jews in Germany who are penniless. They are still required to pay the govern¬ ment the highest taxes possible under German law. One hope they have that would hold them at least for one year Is that they may use the blocked funds of Jews who have already left Germany, leaving most of their fortunes behind. Whether they will be success¬ ful in obtaining permission from Nazi authorities to use these funds is a matter of con¬ jecture. The decree setting up the Jewish Union stipulated that the cost of all J'ewish wel¬ fare work must henceforth bfe borne by the Jewish Union without Reich participation. Jews in the Reich who still have property are already over¬ burdened with State taxes, from which there are no exemptions or alleviations and which are the highest paid by any Reich subjects. The creation ot an all-embracing organization is welcomed by Jewish leaders al¬ though Jewish attempts at unity were tor years bitterly opposed by the Nazi regime. BERLIN (WNS)—Six leading Jews selected by the Gestapo (secret police) were named to head the machinery of the new Reich's Union of Jews in Ger¬ many;, whose main task is to (Oontlnned on rage 4) . Council Laun6hes Summer Drive For Sales Tax Stamps A summer drive for the collec- tion of. sales tax stamps has been launched by the Council of Jew¬ ish Women in c6-operation with Hadassah and the Rose E. Lazar¬ us Sisterhood. Receipts from the stamps are being used, for the Council's Children's Fund, a worthy project, to which all three organizations havo given ttieir wholehearted support in a fine spirit ot co-operation. Members ot all these organi¬ zations are urged to be on the alert .in the collection of stamps land to remind tlieir families to be 'stamp tax conscious' in order that a si:£eablc aum may b&-xcal» ized from tholr rodemptloii. '.it In discussing this new means of fund raising Mrs. Harry Gold berg. Council treasurer, said: "The Council's budget for the coming fiscal yoar is necessarily large to cover all the work we are trying to do. Sales tax col¬ lection is an easy means of rais¬ ing funds if every member will co-operate and in proportion to its success will reduce other forms of-ticket selling and fund getting. Therefore it is the duty of each member to make herself responsible for as large a number of tax stamps as is possible." Mrs. Wm. Schiff, Council presi¬ dent, urges each member to ask her family and friends to save the stamps and turn tliem in as soon as possible in order that some money may be realized by the beginning ot the fall seasori. A collection box for stamps is in the vestry of the Bryderi Rd. Temple or they will be collected by calling either Mra. Schiff, FA. 8366; Mrs, Goldberg, EV. 6132;|Or Mrs. Robert, Levy at FA. 8420. Hungary Adopts Measures Against Jewish Business BUDAPEST (WNS—Cancella¬ tion ot all licenses held by Jew¬ ish lottery office keepers was announced by the State Lottery Administration which set aside a recent anti-Jewish law which made provision for cancellation only four or five years. Al¬ though.the keepers brought the State a net income estimated at between four to five million pengos yearly they will not be compensated. Jewish stall holders in the second hand goods market were given notice to evacuate on the pretext that their stalls were being rented by Christians. About 50 stall holders were af¬ fected by the order Issued througli the Budapest munici pal authorities. that by and large our women folic cannot be expected to make substantial contributions. The number of .Jewish women in our community who enjoy indepen¬ dent incomes is comparatively small. Collectively, however, the ladies can do a great deal more than they have done in the past. Dy soliciting contribu¬ tions trom individual women, re¬ gardless ot what their husbands might give, our women will be making a distinct contribution towards the success of the 1939 United Jewish Fund goal."' The Chronicle Is printing the following news items which siiould interest the women ot this community and at the same time encourage them in their efforts to rise to this historic occasion:— Cleveland: The Jewish' Welfare Fund campaign, not yet, fully com¬ pleted, hns raised over 5760,000. The Women's Dlvlalori functioned for the first time this year under the sponsorship of the Federation of the Jewish Women's Organiza¬ tions with the able leadership of Mrs. Slegmund Herzog. This divi¬ sion has raised ot $100,000 In Indi¬ vidual gifts from women, with pledge cards which rend "this will In no way affect the giving of the other members ot my family.' Cleveland last year rolsed f344,50O. Indianapolis: The Jewish Wel¬ fare Fund Campaign, of which Louis J. Bornstein was chairman, closed with $131,000 raised' as com¬ pared with 578,000 last year. One of the campaign techniques used was their women's division pledges ton cents a day which netted them over $10,000. The Ohio Jevirish Chronicle is otthe opinion that those who are desirous ot making their contri¬ butions to the preseht campaign are coming to realize that the 1939 quota w;ill be subscribed in its entirety only if they feel a spirit of heroic sacrifice and wholehearted generosity, that can allow for the giving up ot luxuries and comforts during the period of the present effort. It feels cohtident that Columbus Jewry will meet the challenge and that our objective ot $115,000 will be readied. All checks should be made to "Simon Lazarus, Treasurer" Uni¬ ted Jewish Fund, 150 E. Broad St. Columbus, Ohio. "¦'%i.'-&\-;".
