I to raise the a retail Price i Kosher neat above that charged in nearby cities the settlement Lorii in a Ftp it instrumental to bringing about a sue Essul adjustment the Boycott and i reduction in the Price meat and it the same time by Wise leadership Able to prevent the acts Vio once and rioting which disgraced Smilar Boycotts in other cities notably Chicago Cleveland a Philadelphia my new York. During the time that he people abstained. From eating heat the settlement sold potatoes at lost Price which resulted in a saving 0 be people our neighbourhood rom fourteen to Twenty note cents a it Eck which was the difference be Ween the settlements Price and the email grocer s Price for potatoes. One it the most interesting results this Community spirit was the formation it the settlement a co operative society which already counts 125 members All whom have paid to 1 Dollar More. This society will it Rob ably not undertake to open a co Iper naive store at first but it will leave to unite the people the neigh bored de so that tic key up uni it it common causes. Every indication is that this society will grow in numbers and that next year i May be Able to report that it is More than an Experiment. One the finest things that a settlement Caje cd is the Motil frs ot4ji$ comp9ty together a common counsel entertainment and Home improvement. This year under the jewish settlement ctn Annati ask la a presidents annual report. The jewish settlement Cincinnati is one the most widely known organizations its kind in the country and special interest therefore attaches to the a re Ift for the current year its president Robert a s. Marx which is As follows last year i presented a program for future achievement which Thi year has been largely translated into accomplished fact. My Earnest Appeal for a a a summer Home where the adults and children our neighbourhood May enjoy a vacation far from sweltering heat the streets and tenements a a has been answered by the establishment a Camp near Remington o., the Little Miami River. We have named this Camp the Helen s. Trounstine vacation Camp in memory her whose death during the past year has been such an irreparable Loes to us. She was Ever deeply interested in solving the vacation problem for girls and boys and it is our Hope that this Camp May prove a lasting tribute to and memorial her Devotion to the settlement and to the a i a up a she Ting go fed a a tirelessly. I am glad to report that the site which we have leased with the privilege Purchase seems suitable for our every purpose. It includes six teed area Ltd Fine farm land bounded one Side by the Beautiful Miami River and the other by picturesque Sycamore Creek. A substantial and commodious House fourteen rooms is situated close to the River Bank and together with stables barns and other buildings will afford excellent facilities for a vacation Home. Here canoeing boating bathing fishing swimming base Ball Tennis croquet and other recreations can be indulged in by Young folks while their mothers and fathers rest under the Shade the great Trees which abound the property. It in no wonder that the girls and boys have already formed vacation savings societies and Are depositing Twenty five cents a week which by the time summer comes will Purchase a two weeks vacation at a minimum expense. We have every reason to look Forward with the utmost Confidence to the Success this our newest activity for which too much credit cannot be Given to the committee summer work which mrs. Ben Loewenstein is the head. Iii fir last year in my annual report i said a the settlement tomorrow must be a civic rather than a social settlement offer no fundamental solution social problems they can nevertheless interpret the condition and their neigh boyhood the Nwe a icy lob Rica the one hand and can in Tipri the Opportunity Freedom and life that democracy to the neighbourhood the other hand i apr who ers american democracy our energies must be applied Mon a Mil toward helping the Community work out its immediate problem8i5pj i intelligent civic leadership is today our great need. Tie need which the new civic sfjupj0$ must meet. To accomplish this workers who a Are to express the civic spirit the neighbourhood must reside this year i am glad to report that we have trav eled far toward the Ideal goal which we have to reach. The new Hea Embr instil do amp in . And. Mrs. Samuel m. Schmidt preferred to live not Only in the neighbourhood but in Bettie men but Jjo to prom to frs Limey have Bent their energies toward he a a the Community work out its problems. In order to Lead a it immunity it lie necessary to have the Confidence the Community. Such Confidence must be earned by action which justifies it. In any crisis which vitally affects the welfare the great mass the people iffy the a settlement it becomes the duty that institution to join with the people to with the people and to advise and Lead the people intelligently and honestly. This duty our institution ibo not shirked during the past year and we May justly say that we have earned a right to the implicit to nil to fir our neighbors. During a a he pm in Boycott the Kosher Butcher Simps which resulted from the at tempt a combination butchers the Able leadership mrs. Schmidt our mothers club has been enlarged so that it now embraces 250 enthusiastic member. This settlement has Long proceeded upon the theory that it is just As important to provide for the education recreation and. Advancement the older people As it is to do the same for the children and every fresh experience adds proof the Wisdom this course action. Another new and interesting piece work was the formation a class for retarded school children which is proving very successful. The organization a Community club which has had several very splendid meetings represents the inauguration an important movement to bring together All the jewish elements in our City up town and Down town orthodox and Reform National and religious Zioni Stic and non Zioni Stic. Notwithstanding the initiation the activities which i have just enumerated the Long established work the settlement has been continued with As great Energy and vigor As heretofore. The gymnasium work u Der the direction . Silverman has been particularly Gratifying an our Basket Ball teams have a Lor list victories to their credit. Victories Over Church teams . Turn Feretos and other non jewish groups demonstrates to our neighbourhood that the spirit the Maccab ans still exists and gives our boys Confidence self Reliance and Pride in themselves and their people. Upon the educational Side we have had classes such As Domestic science classes retarded school classes Etc. In addition there Are a number literary and debating clubs which meet daily in the settlement for the discussion questions every character. During the past year we have held a number lectures upon Friday evenings in yiddish which have been very popular As Well As educational. No report would be compleat without some reference to the social and recreational activities which Are almost a daily occurrence such a dances parties dinners entertainments and even an occasional wedding. Our savings and. Loan association a unique Bank for a settlement our Library both yiddish English and the Branch the Public Library have All made constant Progress. I should feel derelict in my duty if i should make my annual report a Mere record past accomplishment without adding thereto a Call for still further achievement. At this time National crisis the settlement has a most important function to fulfil. The majority the settlements Amei Ica Are in the heart foreign born and immigrant neighbourhoods. No who knows the character our in migrant population doubts for one met ment their loyalty to and their enthusiasm for America. Now is the time when that Devotion to the land which has afforded them a Refuge should be concretely demonstrated. Now is the time for the settlement to mobilize the patriotic forces the immigrant neighbourhood. Every immigrant who can must be taught to read write and to speak the English language. More important still they must be taught to think no the language America. I do not underestimate the value yiddish in a jewish neighbourhood. As a Means preserving the Unity the family but i do insist his it is our duty to constantly preach and promote the constant use the English language in our neighbourhood. Nothing tends so much to developing distinct groups to fostering misunderstandings the immigrant and by the immigrant As the Reading writing and speaking foreign languages f i therefore propose that we make a deliberate and competing Campaign in favor English. L further propose that we redouble our efforts to get every jewish alien to take out his citizenship papers As rapidly As possible. I also urge the continuance with our utmost Power the work the american citizens club an organization which this institution May Well be proud. More than All else we should remember that american ism is not a Mere matter language and i citizenship but it is a matter feeling and spirit. We must constantly make our Jfe Ople realize to the Liberty Epli they sought and found upon coming was won by sacrifice by by courage and by the dauntless it Tom men exalted vision. I immigrants know much the but too Little at the history America. In pig hour National Peil the in Minst must realtor that Eter lips vigilance is still the Price psf erty i that equal Opportunity carries with it equal a obligation and that we Mast he a speared to defend what we possess Toft we no longer possess it. Therefore if this country should acknowledge that War has been made upon us 1 should like to see this settlement join hands with the other patriotic agencies the City in the work enrolling and recruiting men and women for the National defense. I think it particularly the duty those who know the difference Between despotism and democracy to fight to preserve that democracy which has sheltered them from that despotism from which they have fled. If we expect America to keep her doors wide open to receive the Minu graft to world the immigrants who Are Here must demonstrate to America by Active participation in her Battles that the immigrant is Loyal. That the immigrant is Brave and that America has much to gain and nothing to fear from the policy the open door. We should encourage our Young men Between fifteen and eighteen to enrol in the Junior training Camps conducted by the United states government. It will Benefit them physically mentally and morally. It will teach them discipline and inspired in their hearts patriotism. We ushold encourage the older men Between eighteen and forty five to enrol in the senior train ing chips in order that they May be fit to serve their country. Untrained and unfit men Are worthless. This is not ordinarily the work a settlement but these Are not Ordinary times. In time peace we must a prepared to meet the emergencies peace but in time War we must be prepared to meet the emergencies War. We social workers would probably be More willing to Lay Down our lives for a just and everlasting place throughout the world than for any Oiler cause. Many us believe that there May be such a thing m a War for peace. So far As America is concerned any War into which we enter will be a War for peace secure just and lasting. Whatever May be wars outcome its coming will be attended with terrific trials to our Community which we must get ready to meet. It is High time that we study the methods and Means that the social settlements Europe have used to meet the burdens that War has thrown upon them. It is High time that we Survey our Field to see what forces we can give to the National Servid we want this City and Coung try to know that the jewish settlement Cincinnati stands As a pledge patriotism upon the part the jewish immigrants Cincinnati who Are prepared to give their All to protect the country to which they have sworn allegiance., Quot a a Quot a a closing i wish to express the thanks the Board to . And mrs. Schmidt and our appreciation their devoted and untiring service to the cause the people this neighbourhood. To the remainder the staff . Treiman. Or. Gordon . Silverman miss Rasell and miss Schaefer we express our very sincere gratitude for their very Loyal service. Forsan own part wish to thank the members the Board As Well As the superintendent and itoff., Tor their Asi distance and co operation. Our yiddish journals i Sibili ties for at the question As to How far fulfilling we by . Max Raisin a Brooklyn n. Y. A i intend to give Here what May appear As a rather severe opinion wfllilj1, Imp Obma to question. A yet i believe that extreme t views Are often justified even As they Are called Forth by acute problems. Yiddish journalism in America has become such an important Factor in the lives millions our people carrying train both Good and evil begins to loom Lar has duty to its Ever increasing clientele ind find it is. I All alive to be Phi duty. % Asp i shall begin by saying that our yiddish a press manifests a woeful Lack in those moral qualities that go to make a dignified land responsible press. In making this statement i have no reference to any its individual these in very Many cases Are both talented and duty conscious. Indeed from the literary standpoint ouf to Day Are far us ten even five be become even More outbreak the w to these shores who had already won their literary spurs in the great centers yiddish journalism in Europe. The literary which offs into our yiddish papers to Day is Oft High order and i place to any that ish journals in it the the a Fri Chung grasping policy the Tion to win out at All costs be the that must be Conde Nal s. And perhaps sense lies in the f carrying a Iza Tion not out a jeer blindness to the higher needs off he people whose a a a it rather in full recognition these needs. Openly and As if principle these dailies have for a number years been pursuing a policy so decidedly detrimental to Public morals that had it been done by Tbs eng even italian press surely would 1 Only the vengeance Law but the Rig and condemnation selves. It is not at All for to those ago. This has it since the with the influx Host writers an unusually t not be out Reading non jew a and America. The selfish and grim determinants competitors bans fair foaled in these Jour heir greatest to that they Are German America it As called Forth not f the defenders eos indignation the people them Homer nods. R it �?Ty.-. It a j it a 7 Arf a a a a a a v a to in a e. C. Stowell professor International Law Columbia University Ini an address to the Jude ans new York stated that the russian newspapers in commenting the indignation throughout the United states at the time Kishineff and other a lip acres asked what the United states would say if Russia protested against the lynchings in this country. And professor Stowell intimated that Russia a position was Well taken. At the time the russian atrocities we should properly say a a time this attempt to establish a parallel Between authorized russian outrages and unauthorized lynchings in this country was discussed at length in these columns. But the Absurdity it is apparent even to one who is not a professor International Law in a leading University. A group hoodlums May attack a jew in new York and his injuries May result in death yet no one in his right mind would hold the authorities responsible. But in Russia these outrages were planned by officials carried out by their orders and under their immediate supervision. It was Russia that it a not a handful irresponsible peasants. Professor Stowell May As Well compare the armenian massacres with the Georgia lynchings. Yet this entire aroused by the Wanton murder by the turkish government the armenians exactly As the whole civilized world revolted at the spectacle russian government fal cruelty Towas pne jews. It is somewhat surprising that Russia has so Many apologists and defenders among so Many leaders thought in this country. How can any Man speak with patience a country that has been guilty so Many inhuman outrages and which has deliberately flouted this country is quite beyond our understanding. We have commented within the past year the quiet but persistent efforts that have been made by a Dollar diploma lip to renew the treaty with Russia. But we believe that there Are yet enough american citizens $ who have sufficient self respect and respect Tor the dignity their country not to permit a country russians calibre to treat an american passport like a a scrap a criterion. Our gentle sister8. As a result the Boycott instituted March 20 by Cleveland o., Kosher retail meat dealers against the wholesalers account the High Price meat eight riot Calls were turned in in one Forenoon a from the Wood tits Section where several Kosher meat shops were charged by 11$ women who destroyed butter and other foodstuffs. A crowd several Hundred women were faces and a pulling hair while one half them strove to prevent the others trading at the shops. Tho police had Job tool the situation at noon. / necessary to Side with everything Sale done by the chairman the a fief York Kehdl Lah at its last convention to find that he was quite in the right in his scathing denunciation the am Roan yiddish press. For our masses this press has become a source weakness and danger instead As it should and could be one strength and moral uplift. It is a prominently outstanding fact that these journals stand for right and truth Only in so far and is Long As it is to their m interest to Champion these things and that in nearly All cases they age not really concerned with the Peoples needs and desires seeking not up depress the corporate will and idealism their followers but the selfish will and interests their makers and publishers. First last and All the time these dailies Are published with an Eye to circulation and advert Jie ment. Where the Dollar Mark is the Only lode Star upon the horizon All the ratings about principles and ideals become sheer nonsense. For Money these papers will play fast and Loose with things most sacred to the jews. Of political convictions they entertain Only those the party that pays the most thus prostituting even their editorial columns for the highest bidder. There still lives in the memory some us the strange transformation in the political opinions one the yiddish papers the very eve a National election several years ago. At we last moment the party with the longer purse turned up and the publishers the paper in question Unble Shingle changed front and began to attack and Fitu Perate the party and the candidates it so profusely lauded Only the Day before. Yiddish journalism in other words is nothing More than a business with those engaged in it. The publisher a yiddish daily has no higher Conception his work than has the shopkeeper manufacturer his occupation. The thought it glory Public service never seems to enter the mind the yiddish publisher. Where such is the Case Competition becomes reduced to the lowest form rivalry. We accordingly find these papers regarding each other not As Brothers in a common cause engaged in a common occupation but As Trade rivals. Daily we Are made witnesses to the humiliating spectacle their wrangling and mud slinging. The abusive language employed by them against the one the other their rivals is such As might put to Blush even the meanest hucksters a be Ditchev a Wilna ghetto. The dignity and respectability governing the relations the great English journals even the less prominent German and italian papers will by a Mut Tor in vain among the yiddish publications to whom the business morsel each them is chasing is greater importance than All the various ideals to which they Are each and All nominally committed. But the absence All civility these papers in their treatment each l other is something that must sink i into insignificance when compared with i their More numerous offences against the common decency is life. It is Here where these papers have become a positive menace to the moral welfare the Community. The same business reasons which prompt them to cast stones at each other Are wha a move each them to turn its columns into a cesspool filth and degradation. The sex question is one the great problems with which the writers these papers Are ordered to engage their Talent and attention. Ttoe Ubl she a fill that the snappier and spicier fihe Story the better a their dance to attract and hold their readers. Accordingly such stories Are the invariable order the Day. The Scarlet woman occupies the Center the stage in the yiddish press and the writer who does not devote at least a part Hie novel Romance to an i adulterous event has Bat a slim Chance to Seu his work to the yiddish publisher. A the a yell West american Jjon Glifty journals would hesitate to publish the kind lewd and prurient stuff which finds such a a ready Market inf the a ghetto if Oei feels constrained to regret that there is no government censorship Tor he suppression t All such decidedly harmful a literature a up the successors ,.the late . Corn Stock Are unfamiliar with the yiddish. The elimination the immoral newspaper the East Side would be a decided step Forward in the interest Public decency. A. In the boiling and sizzling cauldron our american City use there is a ram Pancy immorality. Innumerable agencies Are Steadi at work to stir up the lower passions by lifting the veil from off things which Are Best left hidden from the gaze the unsophisticated. The stage even where a legitimate drama is produced panders to the lower a instincts and its one aim seems to be to in Halo All illicit sex relationships i and to place the fallen woman in the role a heroine. The moving picture shows Are travelling at an even faster Pace along this Road not to speak the Many burlesque Heaters which Are Clearing houses Tor All the sex Fife the Guji Cipr. As he advances in the process his americanization the immigrant can hardly avoid coming in Contact with All these agencies and being influenced by them. Manifestly it should be the business the yiddish newspaper to exercise a restraining influence upon its readers and in the name the lofty jewish ethics to Appeal to their better natures. Instead and Tor the reasons already mentioned this newspaper is itself a wanderer to Many a evil nature even seeking to improve upon the decadent american methods it has taken As its Model. Applying to these papers the i pals whim talmud we May say them a Eye have done like the worst not like the , All Tjas thing that these papers Are not possessed a sense responsibility toward the people they Are Here to serve. Even where they Are engaged in works jewish welfare such As the abrogation the run my a Offik defeat the in al a Estrict Ion Bill the calling a jewish Congress it is evident that their first and Paramount consideration is in How far such activity will enhance their financial interests How. Much publicity and advertising it will a bring them. With the consequent Hom a a curation. But there is More to be said about the in<0pm8� vhf which these lib Pimpl by Ftp Jln the jewish cause by their unwarranted meddling in nation al and a Bwll i mental affairs and by the manner in which they Are doing it. Hardly a Day passes without these papers raising a deafening noise about some put lie Issue which has More 1jhm�k Section with jewish welfare. Leading american states Gli and educators Are it a Gap Nutly by them with letters for opinions promises this event government measure. Even the president in the White House is Laid siege to by their delegations and representatives. In a land where a Oan have absolutely no place these newspapers Are vying with each other in a bid for the favor one another political potentate. Nominally they Are serving Quot jewish interests it in reality they Are Only seeking to serve themselves. Lest an injustice be done to those who May not deserve it. I wish state with All emphasis that my strictures Are directed Only in part at those journals whose policy is a More conservative and a religious kind. Papers like the morning journal and the daily news to new York City great and Many As their faults Are nevertheless More restrained in tone not so greatly Given to muckraking. And sometimes even a Papfi rising to certain Heights dignity and resp a up to a sometimes though unfortunately not very Jpn. Not even this Small Meed Pise can be Given to the Radical journals like the Forward the Freiheit and the Day yes even the Day though it began its Jour Listic some Promise being an Imp Oft ment upon its older colleagues. These papers Are sadly lacking in the Quality self restraint and mental poise. Iconoclastic and often incendiary they Are a disintegrating Factor in our american jewish life. At religion and All that is holy in life they scoff and where they will not openly mock at it they belittle it by insinuation and innuendo. But their greatest offence As has been stated is their propensity toward erotic sensate Nutem up their readiness to Tuyn their columns Over to pornographic uses for the Sake Gelil great and wonderful is the Opportunity offered to these % papers Tor serving Jhu jewish top it ple Perhai the greatest know Yetf in ? jewish history then All Recap is i dismay at their persistent failure to Rise to the in this epoch making period transition Tor millions our people it Iff for the yiddish press to become the divinely inspired Leader to carry our immigrant masses through the a wilderness chaotic individualism and disorganization to the holy land jewish Unity Faith and loyalty to a great moral and spiritual heritage.
