Dr. Solomon Goldman’s Formula
I For Unity
By Z. Tygel
To date letters have come to me from about 35 per cent
L fifty prominent individuals to whom I suggested re-
Centlv the idea of getting together at a round table confer-
ELe for the purpose of laying the foundation for unity in
Rmerican Jewry. These letters, taken together, constitute
symposium on the tremendously vital issue of
linity.
Os all the suggestions made apropos of my idea, I think
Ithe most practical is that of Dr. Solomon Goldman, presi-
Ident of the Zionist Organization of America. Dr. Goldman
■belongs to that rare group of Jewish scholars who have con
jtinued in this country to spin the golden web of traditional
Lewish learning and wisdom, and his words should receive
lour most serious attention, for he is both a Jewish thinker
land a leader in the realm of practical Jewish affairs. Here
Es what Dr. Goldman writes me:
“Fifty men and women are a mass meeting and an
opportunity for speech-making. Initiate your pro
gram with five. Let them do some solid thinking
for a considerable period of time and put the results
of their hard mental toil in the simplest words and
submit them to a group of fifteen or twenty for
some more thinking and study.
“Our efforts at unity in American Jewry have
I failed because we have assumed that unity can be
imposed from without by some fiat. Unity, to be
worth the name, must be organic and therefore
can onlv be the result of a slow growth.
“I know that the problems of world Jewry call
for immediate action and that thinking is more
or less regarded as a messianic formula, but I am
still old-fashioned enough to believe in it and to
stake the future of mankind, as well as the future
of the Jewish people, on it. Perhaps the reason
why the human race has been unable to make the
progress worthy of it is due to the fact that it
looked upon its problems as immediate and always
acted as if in an emergency.”
I do not think it is important whether 50 men and wt
men are a mass meeting and an opportunity for speed
making. Parliaments and Congresses usually consist c
more than 50, yet they constitute workable mechanisms
and speech-making is not without its value as a means fc
exchange of opinion and the crystallization of a commo
viewpoint. Perhaps we are so apprehensive of a large
number because we still do not possess any sort of commo
tribunal and so the number five appears to have specif
virtues as against fifty. But in reality the figure is c
secondary importance. I should be quite content if w
started with five who would be entrusted with initiatin
the program to be submitted later to a larger group, pri
vided these five will be of a calibre commensurate with th
proportions and the nature of the problem.

Our Film Folks
By HELEN ZIGMOND
Hollywood—ln this strange bu
siness you never can tell whether
a fellow is leaving the lot or just
going out to lunch. Last week it
looked as though the Marxes
walked out . . . story trouble. And
this week . . . Marx my word!
. . . a new yarn is in the
scenario pot, stewing and bubb
ling for the trio’s lunantics. The
story concerns a Yankee family
who came over in the Juneflower
in 1640. The Marxes, in 1940, are
their last surviving descendants,
and are found engaging in petty
rackets. Hence, the title, “Yankee
Clippers.”
The Milestone “touch” might be
described as a genius for vitaliz
ing his characters. In “Os Mice
and Men” he carefully etches each
human being with such tenderness
pathos and understanding that
each springs forth vibrantly alive
to a degree surpassing the book
and the play. Director Milestone
has been absent from the screen
for some time, but his “touch”
is no less deft and original.
It happened after a perform
ance of “Key Largo.” Maurice
Costello, out front, came back
stage to congratulate Paul Muni.
Latter recognizing the older act
or, said, “I know you ... of
course . . . the greatest actor of
these times!”
Costello shook his head and
complimented, “I was . . . until
tonight!”
