After Pilsudski then what by Harvey Laurence one of the earliest and most powerful of the Post War dictators died last week in the person of marshal Joseph Pilsudski of Poland a War hero the great unifying Force of modern polish history Pilsudski was a favorite of the masses. The polish people were solidly in Back of him no matter what the decision a Pilsudski was right. He truly was a mighty his death further complicates the political troubles of Europe. France Germany Russia England and the other Powers a to lesser degree Are wondering just what effect his death will have on european politics. Certainly it will not make for stability and that along is cause for regret. Although Pilsudski was an ardent nationalist though he yielded nothing without getting some Concession for his native land foreign Powers were More than wiling to negotiate with him. They knew that he represented Poland that agreements his party negotiated were not Mere scraps of paper to be blown to the winds by the slightest internal political flurry. The question is now being asked on All sides what now will there be a reaction in Poland making party politics More important than unified nationalism will Poland be torn by internal dissension had the opposition knowing the imminence of Pilsudski a death held off until he passed away because of a fear of his personal hold on the populace the answer to these questions Are a thing of the not very Distant future. Europe awaits these answers anxiously. So too the jews of Poland. Knowing full Well the tragic plight of the jews of Poland being cognizant of their virtual disenfranchise ment by the new Constitution having a realization of the Many act of discriminatory legislation inflicted upon them it a eem strange to May that the jews of Poland honestly mourn the death of the dictator of a Uch a country. It nevertheless is an indisputable truth. The jews mourn Pilsudski s death and they look to the future with great trepidation. They know that things could., be., even worse they fear such a condition. To understand this situation one must realize that anti semitism is a virtual disease in Poland. Where it is the exception in this country it is the Rule in Poland. The three and a half million polish jews eleven Peri cent of the population line in a land where anti semitism is traditional. And whereas Pilsudski took no positive Steps against jew baiting he acted As a Check to the growth and activity of anti semitic parties. What the jews of Poland fear now is that Pilsudski a successors will not be Strong enough to prevent the growth of the Enders with its resultant inauguration of a new reign of terror against Israel in the country. For the Sake of the jews than it is to be hoped that new leaders of the country maintain a Strong hold on the government. Three leaders supreme authority in Poland it is expected will be vested in Triumvir ate composed of professor Ignaz Moscicki the president of the country general Edward Rydz Smidley Pilsudski a own Choice As his successor As inspector general of the country and minister of foreign affairs Joseph Beck. All of these men Are Pilsudski men. Between the three of them rests the Power that was once Pilsudski a. Today the Story is that these three the Active leaders of the country during the dictators lifetime will adhere to his policies. For the jews there is some measure of Assurance in this for Pilsudski was never anti jewish and in his Early Days he was Friendly to jews. As a Young worker in the cause of the polish Freedom Pilsudski espoused cooperation Between the jewish worker and the polish worker. Writing in 1894 in the prs Elswit a paper published in London by polish emigres he said a the jews must join the polish socialists in their fight against the later he wrote a jews must go Arm in Arm with us. There must be Solidarity Between jewish and polish worker. They live on the same soil and must work together for the Independence of welfare fund drive to end monday with Victory meeting sephardic group and team six leading the Campaign Jolson baby jewish los Angeles a special the two months old baby adopted by or. And mrs. A Jolson in Chicago recently is jewish. A Sonny boy a had a real ceremonial brith a few weeks before he was adopted by the Jolson. He was named Al jr., last week. New York j. T. A a a total of $85,000 has been contributed to the building fund of the Rothschild Hadassah University medical Center which will be built in Jerusalem by Hadassah and the american jewish physicians committee. Jewish students to receive Law degrees at the forty first annual graduation exercises of the Indiana Law school to be held in the Claypool tonight miss mignon Margerie Rosenfield and Julius Sagalowsky will receive the Bachelor of Laws degree. Samuel j. Kagan will be graduated from Benjamin Harrison Law school. Amelia Gellman to be commencement speaker miss Amelia Gellman 1622 Bell Fontaine Street was chosen As a Shortridge High school commencement speaker Here this week by members of the faculty at the school. The commencement exercises will be held in Cadle Tabernacle next month. Miss Gellman was recently elected president of the Beta no sorority a jewish group Here. Among the leaders of this Independence movement in Poland were such jews As Diamond Pearl kwai Tek and others. In 1908, when he embarked on a dangerous Mission the late dictator wrote his last testament and sent it to the jew Feliz Pearl for Safe keeping. When at the outset of the War Pilsudski formed his legionnaires Many jews were among them. They fought Long and Well in the service of their Leader. Many of them some of whom have been converted Are now to be found in High posts in the country. In 1918, when he was forming his first Cabinet jewish leaders were called in for consultation. This however was his last position act of friendliness to the jews. Since then on the other hand he never took an anti jewish step that would definitely have labelled him an anti semite. Shortly after he assumed Vir Tual dictatorship of the county in 1926, the Sejm a controlled by his party a removed the disabilities against the jews which were a hangover of the old Tsa Rist regime. Polish anti semites opposed this legislation it nevertheless was passed. Though no Public utterances was made it was understood that the marshal had tacitly pushed it through. It just seems As though a too open Espousal of the jewish cause is political if not actual suicide in that anti semitic Ridden country. Not anti jewish to be labelled a a Friend of the jews is bad Medicine for the polish politician. Perhaps Pilsudski doubted that even he with All his popularity could have withstood this heinous charge. Leading jews have said that the late marshal was without any anti jewish Bias. And though they wished for a statement by Pilsudski in behalf of them they realized that it was impossible. It is for this reason great anxiety now exists among polish jewry. If Pilsudski could not be Friendly to the jews what of his successors to be anti jewish in Poland is politically expedient. If Pilsudski a successors lose their hold on the people they might resort to anti semitism if that would restore them to popularity. Such cases have been known to Hap Junior division going Strong As drive nears end the 1935 Campaign of the jewish welfare fund will end he tee monday evening with a Victory meeting in Kirshbaum Center according to an announcement yesterday by h.
