"I wish to appeal o thopeople of

and I earnestly retfttest the governors

and to clear the decks for a more ef

"An earnest and united pull all
along the line will achieve wondersjn
this direction. We can help ourselves
and relieve. an.Immense amunt of Buf
fering if we attack "the problem gor
ously and in the true spirit of co
Palestine, a nation, today stands be
fore the world. A nation of praetlcal
Ista and Idealists.
The first parliament may meet In
Jerusalem In ten years. Posslblv
sooner. And the Jews will rule over
their own Palestine once mora after
2,000 years of subjection and perecu
tion, notwithstanding the majority of
Arabic Moslems and Arabic Moham
medans who will be represented.
Justice Louis Brandel. of the Uni
ted States Supreme Court, may be
there. Jacob Schlff. of New York,
once an anti-Zionist, may be there.
Certainly If Ittamar ben Avl Is
alive, he will be there. The Zionist
hymn will be sung. The blue and
white flar will be raised. There will
be a great hushed quiet, and Pales
tine will become a freo democracy,
under British protection.
The spirit of the nation was mani
fest In the vestry room of the Eighth
Street Temple last night, when Wash
ington Zionists listened to Ittamar
ben Avl, a real Palestinian, the son of
the Hebrew lexicographer, ben Tehu
dah. He told them what it meant to
him his country, and what' It meant
to them the Zionists.
"When Balfour issued our 'magna
charta' it was an epoch, in our his.
tory. I could hardly believe it. I
knew It was coming some day, but not
so soon," he sald.w
"Palestine, a state. A center for
Jews throughout the world. We will
be one of the greatest nations, one
of the three great nations.
Vanguard There Sow.
"The vanguard Js there. It la im
possible for fourteen million Jews to
return. But, there may nf 55,000 or
80,000 a year who wlirretirn to Pal
estine. " T . "
"Are we prepared?
"Shall we permit them to say we were
"Shall we permit history to say we
were not big enough?
'The British have liberated us. We
he the keys to Palestine. We will
create a new Bible, a new literature, a
race of blood and spirit. One of the
nations at the peace conference and that
universal tribunal later.
"Why do the British and all the allies
want to give back Palestine to us? Why
does Mr. Clark, Speaker of the House of
Representatives, want to aid us? Why
do 250 of the createst men in England
want to give back Palestine to 'the Jews?
Why do American statesmen talk to the
Jews today as Jews and not as Zionists,
not as a religious sect, not as mer
chants? Why do the Christians believe
in us? Why?
Land of Forefathers.
"Because It Is the land of our fore
fathers. It is our land," he concluded.
The applause was spontaneous and
lasted five minutes. Another five min
utes and Washington Zionists pledged
more than eleven hundred dollars to the
Palestine Restoration Fund.
Before this typical young Palestin
ian, who looks like a poet, spoke. Dr.
H. M. Ami, a British subject, employ
ed by the Canadian government in
the geological survey, who recently
spent two years In the Turkish em
plre. visiting Palestine in 1010 and
1011, lectured on the promised land.
Ittamar ben Avi appealed to Wash
Ington Zionists from the standpoint
of a patriot and an Idealist, while Dr
Ami talked from, a scientific view.
Picture Palestine's Glories.
Ittamar ben Avl talked of the won
derful colors, the blue skies, the
Hebrew poetry, while Dr. Ami diB
discussed the rock formations of
Palestine. The natural resources of
the country, the agricultural capa
bllltlas and educational and Indus
trial problems that today face the
Jews and the British government
Dr. Ami's lecture was Illustrated with
maps and lantern slides
When the appeal was announced
for funds, Zionists mere asked to
contribute 1,000 for two reasons
Firstly, to build up and restore what
the Turks and Germans had destroyed
in their tecent, retreat before the
British, and. secondly, from the pa
triotic standpoint of gaining the
satisracuon or reconstructing some
thing which will be permanent.
LONDON, Jan. S. Satisfaction was
expressed In all quarters today over the
election of Earl Reading, lord chief
Justice of England, as British high com
missioner and special ambassador to the
The appointment Is revolutionary not
alone In that It Is the first time the'see
ond highest Judicial official In England
has been requisitioned for distinctly
polloal and business affairs, but In that
the appointee Is of Jewish extraction.
Earl Reading Is the son of an obscure
Jewish immigrant. v

During his law course Isaacs met Miss
Alice Edith Cohen, daughter of a New
York merchant, who was In London with
her father. Together they studied taw,

bar he married her.
