Why Not Organize ?
In ita last issue the Syracuse (N. V.) Jewish
News again advocates the formation of a
Press organization, to be composed of editors
and other writers of our faith.
While a journalistic infant like The Jewish
South —still in ita editorial swaddling-clothes
Be to speak—is not supposed to have any
opinions of its own, we would say from a mere
casual glance, that the idea appears to us to be
an excellent one. It might do much good, and
could certainly accomplish no harm.
Daring our brief editorial career we have
been more than once impressed (unfavorably
we might say) by the numerous petty bicker
ings and bitter personalities in which some of
our contemporaries engage. We conscientious
ly believe that it a grand gathering of all the
Jewish editors could be bad, where they could
take each other by the handd and look into one
another's eyes and there read that each was
advocating true Judaism as he saw it, that a
quietus wo dd be put on all this unseemly
warfare. For a motto we would suggest that
of the Jewish Publication Society—"lsrael's
mission is peace."
And to save any unnecessary dispute as to
location, we would suggest Richmond as the
best place in the country in which to hold a
convention to organize the Jewish Press Asso

All the same, we will dare say the Doctor
can give no satisfactory explanation of his
reason for using the expression "Russian
Hebrew" in connection with a recent assign
ment in that city.
We know from personal experience that such
usage is postively forbidden in every depart
ment of the Dispatch, and even when over
looked by the correspondence editor, the proof
reader has standing orders to eliminate any
such expressions. In this particular instance,
this latter personage was a new-comer and
unacquainted with the office rules, hence the
paragraph alluded to.
"The Jewish South comes to us each week.
It has the right spirit about it, and in time
will became a valuable champion of Judaism.

it is such help which makes any Jewish paper

It affords me gTeat pleasure to say for Prof. A.
Metzger that I know him personally to be a
gentlemen of high character and an Optician of
fine attainments. The best recommendation I
could give Dr. Metzger is to say that he has at
tended to my own eyes most successfully, and I
send my ej'e cases to him. Respectfully,
