Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - November 25, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky a delightful evening alter Reading an enormous mail of unseemly hate and uncivilized bigotry my wife and i togged ourselves out in our Best and went to the Plaza hotel Here in new York where a Gold medal of Merit would be presented by the jewish War veterans to chaplain Joshua Goldberg of the Navy. Josh As he is generally known. Was born in Russia and studied to be a rabbi. He came to the United states in 1916 in time to Volunteer for service in world War i As a Soldier. This gave him an Opportunity to learn English so that he Speaks it even in sermons with a Soldier s familiarity with earthy terms. When world War ii came i around he volunteered As a Chap-1 lain in the Navy and has made j that so much of a career that he has achieved considerable motion and is the first of his Faith to j be the chaplain in charge of tin i third naval District which is one of the most important. The turnout at the party at the Plaza was indeed remarkable for Navy. Army and air Force brass appeared in surprising numbers l be award was presented to rabbi Goldberg by no less a person than general Oma Bradley and tin two principal addresses were delivered by former Secretary of the Navy Charles s Thomas and Cardinal Spellman just returned from Rome. There was no hate no bigotry no narrowness in that room. There was co operation Friendship Low of country presiding during one phase of the dinner was major Genei a1 Melvin Krulewitch of the Marine corps during the remainder. Benjamin Kaufman who is a congressional medal of Honor Holder from world War i o a Cardinal Spellman was very amusing indeed. Harry her Altfield the humorist had been called upon to speak. At one Point he said i Uke a Catholic to be a Catholic a jew to be a jew a Mohammedan to be a it was no great shakes of a Point because one is what one is and the audience let it pass. But when Cardinal Spellman arose he repeated what Harry had said and added a i would like to say a wee word for the protestants the audience realized that Harry had been topped and everyone was pleased. Why cannot those who spend their lives trying to prove then own superiority find a Little comfy t in the Joy that comes from a variety of experiences in the Navy chaplain service when a Sailor or a Marine needs Comfort or wants to Pray according to his own Faith or seeks counsel a chaplain does not discriminate against him because of his Faith nor does he abuse vol. 80.
