to apportion their sympathies. It is al
most commendable that Germany is not

Austrian Jewish soldiers. England, how
eer, desires greatly that all Jews who
are not taking a definite side In the war
should sympathize with England and
with England's caut".
"It appears strange that at this time
there Is no united Jewish public opinion
jn the present war. The Jewish opinion
i greutly scatwea because the Jewish
nation is scattered."
