Nor covet the game at All. But fighting fighting fighting die driven against the Louise Imogen Guiney. The proposed Congress a. By Gotthard Deutsch. Pliny is quoted As having said that there is no Book so poor that one cannot learn something from it. It was my experience during a Long trip to new York prolonged by a delay of four hours when from a sense of duty i read George Moore a novel a the Brook of either my time of novel Reading has passed or the Book is not Good it certainly bored me. But it contained one statement that appealed to me very much. The author makes one of his characters an enthusiastic believer in jewish nationalism defend the roman Rule by the suggestion that it saved Theja is from quarrelling among them selves. Our present generation is evidently still More individualistic is after All indicative of the various shades of religious Observance even in the orthodox Campi a the meeting which was called to order according to Good old jewish fashion More than half an hour after the appointed time by colonel Harry Cutler of Providence r. I., even in civilian clothes a military figure began As already mentioned with a prayer by rabbi Mendes. This in itself is an innovation. Old fashioned jews knew no other prayer except Cue found in the traditional Liturgy and recited at stated times. The opening words of colonel Cutler were strictly formal. He read the agreement Between the two factions and Callea for nominations for a temporary chairman. This was the first signal to show the existing differences which cannot be understood unless the move is prose Fitial historically. A bin the idea first took Root to utilise the Opportunity offered by the War for the removal of the mediaeval Resti actions imposed upon the russian jews there were two different opinions i s to tie methods to be employed. The american jewish committee considering itself representative of the whole jewish population of the country proposed to Deal with the question As part of its Agenda. From the fir t moments an opposition grew among the masses representing largely the russian element. The yiddish press which again represents two fail tion3, the one comprising the orthodox and the zionists while the other voices the sentiment of the Radical and nationalistic labor element objected to methods which were considered a repetition of the old court jew policy working through diplomatic channels a while the other element insisted on making the voice of the people heart a through a Congress. The opposition grew to considerable strength and As the american be Wisla committee refused to yield the other party called a preliminary convention in Philadelphia which held its sessions March 25 and 26. The impression created by this conference clearly showed the strength of the movement. Whatever individual ambition May have contributed to the sentiment is evidently insignificant compared with the feeling of the masses that the two latest experiences with the old fashioned Way at the Berlin Congress of 1878. And at the Portsmouth of 1905, were not encouraging. La 1878, we had indeed representative men than their ancestors were at the time i locating the jewish cause. There of Pontius Pilate. We have grave problems to solve in some respects Graver than those of 1800 years ago but we Are still quarrelling. The statement just made requires qualification. True the roman Rule was oppressive yet the jews in those Days could hardly be found today a jew of such prominent standing in Public life As was Adolphe Cremieux in 1878. He was senator of the French Republic had served twice As member of the highest Council of the government once As minister of Justice and it Sec suffered partly in common with other time As a Embiri the provision subject races of the roman Empire and partly because of their aspirations for Independence. Individually As members of the jewish nation or As people professing and practising a al government constituted in the hour of the severest National crisis in 1870. He had served in the French parliament for nearly forty years and had been for fifteen years president of the certain religion they seem to have a Dalliance israelite Quot thus possess no fared perfectly Well. Our problem is almost the opposite. Our enemies As did lately drum ont claim at least that they would have nothing against us were we to establish ourselves unequalled opportunities for knowing the sentiment on the jewish question in the highest government circles. Apparently he had achieved his object. In International Areopagus had either in Palestine or to and Quot other i a Mph sed upon Roumania formally it in palest be o in a y wag jmp0se j upon All Balkan states although Roumania presented the Only serious problem a the obligation of treating her jews of an equal footing with other subjects of the newly country As a nation for ourselves. This May prove it harsh indictment. Yet recognizing and As i Hope Able to present the historic importance of the gathering that took place in new York december 25, i Felt keenly the fact that a twelve hours session interrupted by a Brief recess was devoted not to the cause of our oppressed co religionists nor to the realization of the Long cherished dream of a permanent organization representing All sections of jewry but to a quarrel about the personalities to achieve this end. The gathering was a notable one. Its personnel was highly impressive. As there was no official list of the members present i must rely on my memory. The most notable feature was the representation of such divergent elements As Jacob h. Schiff created Sovereign state. Practically the achievement amounted to nothing for Roumania evaded the obligation by a trick. Russia had supported her in this policy even during the Congress and the other Powers did not use any serious Means to enforce compliance with this obligation. It was still worse with the experiences of 1905. Prominent american jews All of them men of the highest standing though none of the political influence of a Cremieux had an interview with Over by the nomination of or. Fried Enwald As vice president Frieden Wald although representing Toft old american element of German extraction had warmly advocated the Congress idea. He had even resigned from the american jewish committee to emphasize his opposition. This however was evidently not satisfactory As a Compromise to the other party. They demanded a Man As chairman who could be considered strictly Neutral and the Choice fell upon Adolph Kraus who during the entire controversy had used his influence to bring the two parties together. Hit name was placed in nomination by professor Horace m. Kallen the a Lenfant terrible for this aristocratic Section of american jewry. Kallen whose brilliancy As a scholar and a writer is undisputed stands for the National Conception of Judaism and has Only words of scorn for the religious interpretation of the jewish idea. One who looks at this handsome Young Man and listens to his Calm Way of speaking would never suspect him of revolutionary tendencies. The few words in which he gave his reasons far nominating or. Kraus showed no poll Mica spirit. The nomination was seconded by judge Hugo Pam of Chicago who was the presiding officer at the Philadelphia conference. An unusual procedure was adopted by the Rule that elections should be a Viva evidently each party desired to know its followers and neither party trusted its members so far As to allow vote by ballot. The election proved that the two factions were almost equally divided. The vote stood forty nine for Kraus and forty five for Marshall six a among who were the two candidates a refused to vote. The election further showed the curious fact that the most Radical element represented by the labor leaders voted for the aristocrat. The writer is compelled to admit that he is not enough of a politician to understand the motive of this surprising fact. It is Likely however that the opposition of the labor ele ment to the zionists was the decisive Factor. Or. Kraus acted As Chaitt fun with the calmness of it Man accustomed to handle an excited crowd although by Nai by Rith meetings Are As a Rule not every exciting. The most important matter resting with the chairman was the appointment of four committees which were to decide on the Date of the conference on the organization on the nomination of officers and on the a constructive Relief As the real Issue turned on the election of officers it is preferable not to follow the chronological order but to speak of the nomination is the last Issue. A a what should have been considered As the vital question was that of electing the members of the Congress. Professor Horwitz who As an experienced statistician was appointed chairman of this committee presented his report at the last moment about eleven of clock at night when everybody was tired. The report was even then a Mere draft and not in definite form. It is proposed that every jew who is affiliated with any jewish organization religious charitable or fraternal the latter including the labor organizations shall have a vote. The number of delegates was apportioned according to the estimates of the jewish population in the Large cities. In addition the population scattered Over the various states is also to elect representatives. Owing to the Lack of statistical material it will remain impossible to state whether he allotment is fair but it May be assumed that every Section will claim that it was not Given the proper representation. The project was in such vague shape that the convention referred it to the administrative Board with full Power to act. Morris Hill quit the labor Leader presented a report proposing that the Congress he substance. A we have already three agencies for the collection of War Relief funds none of which is Apt or can be compelled to surrender its funds and its machinery to the Congress. If you do not wish to establish a fourth Agency what do you propose to a of a his Vipul evidently made a great impression and the finally adopted Resolution to place the Relief As boys today might play school. They had succeeded in electing a Board of a eighteen men As Trutt tees a rabbi Neal College of three two Hazan m Sexton and a a Schul Kloppert and perhaps some More officers but one boy a typical Shl Emiel was left. It was impossible to find an office for him. He had to remain Iff it was a great achievement to unite work on the Agenda of the Congress men like Henry Morgenthau and Oscar was in effect a first class funeral. Of the. Debat Ellrose to fever heat when judge Alschuler presented the report of the majority of the nomination com on officers of the organization. Straus with typical aristocrats like judge Sulzberger who withdrew during the Early part of the proceedings with Gedaliah Bublik and Mordecai Katz of the a Sta Gelatt a and Schiesl both sections of the committee agreed Inger of the cloak makers Union but on a Board of thirty five members but the question of the president was one on which agreement could not be reached. Judge Alschuler As chairman of the majority of the committee proposed the name of or. Kraus while the minority of which or. Cyrus Sulzberger was the spokesman nominated or. Marshall. Or. Sulzberger had a very delicate task to Deal with in stating the reasons for the minority report. He evidently believed that the Best Way out of the it was a pity to see that a deliberation of twelve hours should have ended without even declaring a Pitt form of purpose and an outline of proposed action. A Meta Sah Der Grosse moment Ein Klein Geschlecht Typlt like exclaiming. Yet the personnel of the administrative Board gives Hope that the Congress will be an impressive demonstration of the determination of the jewish people that it will insist on obtaining for their Brethren in lands of persecution full Recagni difficulty was to say that the election Tion of their inalienable rights As Dpi of or. Kraus the chief executive of i Zens and demand them not As a gift a give Rise to a misinterpretation and cited the Case of Leo m. Frank in which the by Nai by Rith order was charged with maintaining a political machine to defeat the ends of Justice. In this connection he was guilty of a serious Faux Pas in naming governor Slayton As the persecutor of Frank which he later was forced to Correct. The impression intended was so As least it appeared a to antagonize the election of or. Kraus without saying anything against him personally but the impression received ? was that the president of the by Nai by Rith would discredit and imperil the whole movement. Rabbi Stephen s. Wise at once arose and with his deep voice which of kindness As recently a an English citizen of the jewish Faith has said but As a right which they have acquired As natives of their country. On this platform All May unite including those who believe with the englishman that they Are citizens of the United states of jewish persuasion As Are those who demand a jewish state in Palestine and group rights for the jewish people in other lands. In the menorah movement an official statement of its purposes. The menorah movement represented by Over fifty menorah societies in is doubly impressive when he uses american colleges and universities. The leading russian statesmen the t held not later than May first. On russian ambassador to Washington Baron Rosen and the then powerful count Witte. They were treated to the ill. Fin l Likay a me courteous phrases but there the the leading financier and men like ended two month later an Era of pogroms began which has also Schlesinger the labor Leader. There was on the one hand rabbi m. S. Margolies the representative of strictest orthodoxy and Stephen s. Wise the Leader of the most Radical element in american Judaism. We had Louis Marshall the noted Cor Lutoll no parallel in jewish history since the time of the crusades for even the Cossack rebellion of. 1648. While bloodier in its results was not a states action As according to a reports of the London this Point nobody seemed to have any desire to say plainly what was in the minds of those assembled. I interpret it As a feeling that if the Congress should be held before an International Congress would be ready to consider the settlement of the peace conditions it would be aft empty demonstration in my opinion at least such would be the Case. Yet various voices were heard protesting against what might it to express indignation shouted in the midst of enthusiastic applause a we jews do not hat to go outside of our fold to find our enemies. We Are supplying them ourselves a or. Kraus at this moment called or. Morgenthau to the chair and declared from the floor that a would decline the nomination if or. Marshall would do likewise. .11 or. Marshall agreed to do likewise and then or. Nathan Straus was nominated and unanimously elected. He proved an admirable chairman whose dry humor helped to tide Over numerous difficulties. One interesting practice of his was to declare after he had put a question a i have heard no noes. The motion is therefore but there arose a serious hitch Over another difficulty. The labor element complained that they had not been Given proper recognition by the four members who were elected into the administrative Board and although urged to name their demands they refused to do so. Those Fon the inside knew that it was not a ques Tion of the numbers but their determination to have Meyer London elected whom the zionists and the orthodox opposed. It seems that no one had the courage to name him until or. Magnes arose and with a calmness that was not disturbed by the most heated interruptions plainly stated the fact. It seems that the zionists who in former years idolized the Young graduate of the hebrew Union College who in spite of his Early training in Reform environment had jollies their cause Are mow antagonizing him. The Keh Illah whose a a spirytus Rector he is does a it seem to be very popular in the orthodox circles either and is charged with catering to the it is claimed that the local Relief committee in Warsaw is using its Power to discriminate against the zionist and nationalist element. Magnea had in his report declared that these charges were unfounded but the opponents who seem to have received such complaints Are unwilling to abide by the results of his investigation. Magnes however held Hia ground without betraying the slightest sign of excite ment and succeeded in gaining the attention of the Assembly in spite of the previous disorder. The objection to London he said was due to a remark that the. Latter had made in a Boston Assembly called to collect por Atlon lawyer and Rankin the tires life pogroms beginning october nere i 19q were Thig la a strictly has appear As indefinite postponement of Money for Relief in the War zone. He lawyer a for i the labor were two Brothers Straus a i topic Survey not based on any Par a in has ii a san prejudice. It May be True that the conditions would have been exact the whole idea. Finally or. Oscar Straus prevailed with a Clever Amend was certain London could give a satisfactory explanation. London in so Many ways As the first jew serv ing As american minister to a foreign country As member of the presidents Cabinet and As a nominee for governor of new York perhaps also the by the same had the interview Between count Witte and the american notables not taken place but it is an ment that the Congress should be called to speak declared from the held not later than May first unless Start that he had nothing to apologize the administrative Board by a vote of for and he brought the audience on two thirds of its members should de his Side by a Clever bit of he Moi Joe cide otherwise. Still More difficult was the task of or. Louis Marshall a re Rel. Nzin2n for disputable fact that All the niceties first jew honoured with nomination or that were passed at Portsmouth and said that he had his own style of talking and if he had not he would As chairman of the committee on con be As Dull As his opponents. At the held its annual convention this year at Minneapolis and St. Paul under the auspices of the University of Minnesota on december 26-29, 1916. This jewish student movement devoted to the a study and advancement of jewish culture and. Ideals a initiated by a handful of students at Harvard in 1906, has grown rapidly and spontaneously until now through its constituent societies in the leading universities of the country it is a recognized Force for intellectual and moral betterment la if Pali Quot in these momentous Days when the jews of America Are organizing their economic and spiritual resources to meet the obligations and responsibilities of leadership it appears important to give More than a passing consideration to the aspirations and achievements of the menorah movement. With the Advent of thousands of our members to the universities in the last two decades followed by the prominence of jewish students in the Fields of scholarship their Awakening to a sense of loyalty and appreciation of their it wish heritage has come a change of attitude from the old Raissez Faire position. The jewish students Are slowly but unmistakably shaking off the old Conception that the years of College life should be free and unperturbed of jewish thoughts and problems. They Are coming to the realization that their University training is incomplete and inadequate if it does not also give them an Outlook upon jewish life based upon a study of jewish ideals and problems. With the new order being established among our University students the men and women of the Community Are beginning to take a More Active interest in moulding the welfare and Progress of this student body destined to exert no Small influence upon Toa policies and development of american jewry. Of Aims and purposes of the Moi Orah i societies. The primary object of it mint fifth society is intellectual otitis cultural. It inspires men with a desire to study the history the literature the religion the problems and ideals of the jew. Working in entire Harmony with the Freedom and liberality of the american universities it brings too jewish historical and literary contribution out from the Musty shelves of semitic treasures and curios into the lecture room and study Halls. By the establishment of menorah prizes and study groups opportunities Are Given for Earnest intensive fruitful Endeavor in the Fields of jewish scholarship and thought. A menorah society is instrumental in producing jewish students with virile moral fiber through the process of self realization and reawakening it has done much to enlighten the general student body to a proper appreciation of the jew his contribution and ideals. Operating As a cultural Force an open forum it has been accorded a position of dignity and re pet. Its influence is Ever widening in the Field of jewish scholarship by encouraging and making possible at our leading universities the establishment of chairs and courses in hebrew learning. It the attitude of University Rad faculty authorities is notably illustrated in the cordial support Given by such leading educators As president Eliot of Harvard president Wheeler of California and president Hadley of Yale. The faculty members who have come into touch with the societies have noted the remarkable influence exerted by the menorah idea. The observation of prof. Edward c. Baldwin of the University of Illinois is but characteristic a even now i can see to the jewish students whom i meet a change of mental attitude from that which was common a few years age. The jewish student of to Day seems to me to have developed a racial self respect not aggressive nor blatant but rooted in a recognition that he belongs to a gifted race possessed of a splendid past. The jewish student now is commonly a Man proud of his heritage and sensible of his obligation to live in the Light of his racial ideals. 8uch a change of mental attitude i attribute in no Small degree to the influence of the menorah movement. The jewish Community too to beginning to feel the influence of the menorah societies. Whether in the Fields of jewish education social service or Community enterprises men a Rah graduates Are being actively enrolled while the undergraduates Are receiving that academic training in jewish lore and ideals which makes them Ideal candidates for these Fields of Pursuit. The menorah movement with a membership of 3,000 jewish most every hour and several members of the a Zion mules have been decorated two Poland in its fight for Freedom had the assistance of a Doughty f jewish regiment the record of whose exploits is still preserved in the archives of the dismembered kingdom. The american civil War provided its jewish heroes by the a thousand whilst today when a a preparedness to echoing across the Atlantic a j a regiment is in course of formation. 1 there is no reason Why the jew should not make a Good Soldier. The martial spirit is latent in every israelite and whether he comes from country House or factory from directors chair or tailors Bench it requires hut Little to bring his fighting spirit to the surface. It of psf. One of the happiest phases of the War has been the cementing of Good Fellowship Between the jewish and non jewish Soldier a state of affairs that is largely due to the fostering of the spirit of comradeship by the it. . Religious differences and misconceptions have been buried and appreciation of the jew has been aptly summed up by a wounded Highlander. A what a asked a voice in a West end crowd a what Are the jews doing at the front a came the reply a Why their duty of course a that Highlander spoke with the emphasis of one who really knew to a of a j of jottings of Fui Fiji a ? vase is a Auto the knights of Zion will hold their annual convention at Minneapolis december n to the Lodz school department established this year fifty nine polish schools thirty seven jewish As Many German and three moravian. In a recent interview in new York City gov. Simon Bamberger of Utah students with an Ever increasing body i that state As it offered them Greipp of University and non University men port unities. And women in the general Community associating themselves with the movement May confidently be expected to contribute in no Small measure to the Progress and advancement of the jew Billy sunday says. A i do not think Home life is More filled with love than that of the jew. No Man on the Earth loves the members of has family Mace in America. The jewish student Gen-1 than the he might have added Prat Jan amused and mindful of its a and his fellow Man a obligation and Opportunity will give a creditable account of itself.

The Warrior instinct was not unrecognized by the late lord Kitchener. A few months before his death when visiting the canadians at Salisbury Plain the War ministers attention was drawn to a Little Canadian jewish boy of thirteen Reu Fri Ginsberg who had joined his father staff sergeant Ginsberg himself a Veteran of Many wars Iff toe Campaign. The Young Warrior had managed to Stow himself on the outward bound ship and was subsequently adopted As the regimental Mascot. At Ypres Reuben was wounded by shrapnel whist carrying dispatches. It is of interest to add that after lord Kitchener had Given the lad permission to go to the front he was heard to remark to his aide de Camp a a that a blood for you a a i than there is the Case of the Little ghetto boy myer Rosenbloom who suddenly disappeared from the jews guest of Honor. About 250 persons were present. Leon l. Waters presided and among the speakers were Edward Milton Royle the dramatist or. Stephen s. Wise of the free syn agog president j. T.

This Point was raised by the opponents to the plans of the american jewish committee. They maintained that the voice of the american jewish str calve Relief. The phrasing of the committees task As originally presented seems in itself objectionable. This original report spoke of the reconstruction of jewish communities. To me this phrasing is open to Seri might take for a i left representing approximately i Ous objection.

He was charged with having said that jews should cease to Bluff about their past and to Prate about their future pm it was the latter part of the phrase which aroused the ire of the zionists. He had spoken in yiddish in which language the same words assume a different meaning but his main argument was that his words had been torn out of the context. He had appealed for the Relief of the War sufferers and had indeed said that jews that follows association with menorah i old and was found to have joined the ideals.
