(Editor’s note: We take pleasure in printing an-
I other splendid article especially written for The South-
I ern Jewish Weekly by Maurice Lawrence of Griffin, Ga.,
I who as a lay leader, has on several occasions contribut-
I ed his interpretations of today’s chaotic world prob-
I lems.)
I Now that the calendar year of 1939 is drawing to ar
Ind let us pause and reflect upon the happenings and tin
Irogress that have been made toward humanity during the
last year.
During 1939 we saw more atrocities than in 1938, more
Bloodshed, more people driven from their homes through n(
Eult of their own, more families broken up, more people
■eeing to foreign countries for temporary shelter, not krow-
Kg which way to turn, nor where to go,—broken in health
|nd in spirit.
From the individual’s standpoint it has been a year of
|reater contributions to charity; organizations have had to
lork much harder to help these unfortunate people. It has
fcquired much more effort on the part of the leaders in order
t get to these people and administer relief. More time ant
■fort have been spent in this work than ever before, am
ne unfortunate part of it is that when we look upon a
liis work as being a solution, we realize that most of it ;
lasted, as very little is being done in the creative sense.
I Do not misunderstand. We are doing everything th
|e can possibly do under the circumstances. All that
Ive and more, is absolutely necessary. The work that
Being done is the greatest piece of humanitarianism eve
mdertaken, but still we have the right to ask ourselvi
ftese questions, “What is the solution ?” “How long will thi
Imtinue?” “How long are people going to support so gener
iisly these charitable institutions before they tire of giving
pd hearing the same story?” What is being done in a
■eative way so that once we tide over this present situation
le can be reasonably sure such a thing will never happen
pain? Surely these are questions we should not be asham-
K to ask ourselves.
I There’s an old saying, “History repeats itself;” and those
Ihose minds are “closed” might say, “Persecution has always
pisted and always will.” To these people I would say, “Isn’t

United States, on the occasion of
a testimonial reception given him
by Manhattan Post 1, daddy post
of the organization . . . All got
goodly rounds of applause . . . But
the speaker who brought the raf
ters down was a Catholic veteran
of the Civil War, Thomas H.
Stritch, New York State Com
mander of the G. A. R. . . who is
a mere 93 years young . . . And
who spoke with the spark and the
vigor of a stripling in his fifties
. . . The sedate old Astor has
seldom heard such applause as
rang out when Stritch sat down.
He stole the show from a dozen
other orators.
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, ad
dressing a dinner meeting of a
conference on refugees in New
York, denounced rich persons who
financed anti-refugee propaganda,
warned against mounting preju
dice in the United States and call
ed for intensified efforts to edu
cate the nation about the value
of refugees.

Collective Action
JAs individuals many of us are greatly disturbed about
te catastrophe that has befallen our people. But not until
e begin to be worried as a group will our concern prove to
pe of any avail. We must think collectively about this prob
em and out of such thinking will come collective action.
If only a group of leaders, representing a cross-section
of American Jewry, met at a round table once a week, or
i once a month, and gave their full attention and concern to
, ward the fulfilment of our responsibility in this critical mo-
I ment, the results would be fruitful. And if they issued a
statement after each meeting it would at least serve to com
fort us, and possibly the sufferers on the other side, in the
knowledge that American Jewry has not forgotten, that it is
thinking, planning, preparing collectively for the tremendous
task that history has imposed upon us.
But where are these leaders? What are they doing?
When will they finally get together at a round table and,
facing each other frankly and earnestly, say: “Something
MUST BE DONE—LET US BEGIN!” (Z. Tygel)
